Ms. Krista has been my vocal instructor for a year now and I absolutely love love love our sessions. She has reasonable pricing, flexible scheduling, and very knowledgeable about a range of genres that will fit your needs and interest. Ms, Krista makes her students feel comfortable with learning and trying new things. As her student, my genre interest is r&b and pop. Although, I came in as an untrained singer, Ms. Krista has help strengthen and repair my vocals from years of over singing. This consists of training my three voices (chest, head, and mixed). I have no doubt in a couple of more years I will reach a professional level of singing because of her. Over the year, Ms Krista has taught me different jazz techniques and soulful tips to be able to apply to my r&b music selection. We've sung a bit of jazz, pop, r&b, and even a bit of blues type of songs. In the beginning I wasn't quite interested, however, with her expertise she's opened my mind on different approaches that I can use to strengthen and build my repertoire. Ms. Krista's critiques are very constructive yet helpful to push you to your greatest potential. She's even given me tips on performing and how to be a better entertainer on stage. Ms. Krista never rushes through sessions and is always prepared and ready for the next student. Ms. Krista has never been unprofessional. Ms. Krista has always kept me eager for lessons. She is very opened minded unlike some instructors to what you want out of the lessons instead of pressuring students on what she has already prepared. She lets you have a voice on what goals you want to set for yourself with her help. I would highly recommend her if you are looking for an instructor that is going to push you and challenge you to your greatest limit than Ms. Krista is the one to book.

Before coming to Fred's studio, I had already been playing for 14+ years with private lessons. However, I hadn't had the opportunity to take lessons for a couple years and I missed the structure that came with piano lessons. Not only did I get the structure that I wanted with weekly piano lessons, but Fred has been able to help re-inspire me to love the instrument. I leave each weekly lesson excited about the music I'm supposed to play. He doesn't waste my time teaching me principles I already know, instead he opens points of discussion about what the composer might have intended and how to play with feeling and expression. There have been several times where the day of my lesson comes and I haven't practiced. I feel apprehensive and wished I'd canceled the lesson with a feigned excuse so I can go home and practice instead. I'm always glad I didn't cancel when I get to the lesson, though, because Fred will inevitably teach me something new and get me excited to try again the next week.

My 14 year old son has been taking lessons from Susan Hentz for only 8 months, and he has learned so much. Most of all, he enjoys his sessions as she makes learning fun. She is patient and encouraging. She also shares her broad experience in music, instruments, band prep, etc. with him, giving him advice and tips and feedback and what to expect. Her love of music is evident and she has passed on her passion for teaching and music to my son...and me, his mother! He looks forward to his lessons with her each week, as she is fun and always so positive in her teaching and working with him. We highly recomment her as a teacher, mentor, and friend, her love for music and teaching is contagious!

She was perfect. A future star. She sent me a long list of what she could play. It had dozens of hits from many a genre. I chose 20 something and she played them beautifully. This was a party for my wife who just beat breast cancer. Dave & Marilee Cade

About

I am available to work with children or teenagers, beginner to intermediate. Lessons are $50 for an hour or $25 for half hour. I encourage half hour for beginners or students who perhaps are busy with other activities. For students who are committed to piano and hope to continue pursuing piano for years on a competitive level, I recommend an hour lesson. Some students choose to have a lesson every other week instead of weekly. I am flexible to your needs. I teach theory such as scales, chords, arpeggios, time, intervals, etc. I typically use the Piano Adventures theory and lesson books, especially for beginners. I also like to have a "fun book" that allows students to have a song to learn that they might be more familiar with. New in Fall 2018: "Mommy and Me" music classes offered to age 4-5. I would love to hear more about you and what experience with playing piano (or other instruments) you might have. I look forward to talking to you more!

I offer a very laid back environment that is conducive to all learning styles. I do not want any of my students to feel as though they are being pressured so much so that their joy of learning is stolen. Under my instruction, lessons can and will be very rewarding. I am available to provide both piano & voice instruction at my home on the upright piano that I used as a child & teenager.

My goal is for the student to not only learn, but enjoy each lesson. Having a countdown play until the next lesson is what I go for. Students get a full musical education as they dive into the lives of composers and create art and poetry inspired by conversations during lessons. Theory is hands-on rather than homework. Students do not simply get piano lessons. They receive so much more. I defy you to find a more complete experience!
