Lela is truly a teacher at heart, not just somebody who knows a lot about piano! I would recommend her to students of all ages because she works to understand you so that she can adjust the lessons to meet your aspirations. Not to mention she is one of the kindest people you will ever meet! I am grateful to have connected with her and very excited to see what I can accomplish with her help.Jun 16, 2019VerifiedLela Satterfield's reply
Thank you, Ryan. It's my pleasure to teach you!
Our two daughters have been taking piano and voice lessons for three years with Lela. We couldn't be more pleased with the quality of instruction and the progress that our two daughters have made. Lela is very professional and thorough in her approach. She makes lessons fun for the girls as well. I recommend Lela to anyone that is thinking of starting their children with music lessons!Mar 2, 2019

Thank you! It's a pleasure to teach your son!
My son worked with Lela for 6 years:first as a voice coach and then also as a piano teacher. Lela’s teaching helped my son learn a strong foundation in both voice and piano. Lela helped guide his voice through the puberty years and gave him an appreciation of the classics. Anytime he had an audition , Lela always worked on helping my son both chose a song and really perfect it. She also organized recitals several times a year to provide her students with a chance to showcase their talents. We feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with such a talented and patient teacher.Jun 28, 2019Lela Satterfield's reply

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?The first step in vocal instruction is discovering the student's natural voice. Students then learn to practice age-appropriate vocal exercises, breathing technique, pronunciation and placement, and songs in a variety of styles. In preparing for recitals, students learn memorization strategies and performance skills. Later they learn how to prepare for auditions and performances and how to care for their voices. Piano, guitar, and other instrumental students will be assessed to determine their level of accomplishment, unless they are beginners. An interesting curriculum in a variety of styles will be provided as a basis for learning to read music. I also teach each student music theory and songwriting.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am a credentialed music teacher with a K-12 teaching credential. I teach voice, piano, guitar, ukelele, band instruments, and songwriting. I also enjoy teaching preschool music.
