She provides a comfortable learning experience that's also fun by teaching with songs you want to sing! I really liked the vocal warmups we did beforehand as you can really hear the difference they make when singing. Awesome!
Bill is a very good teacher - really works on skills and technique with a strategic purpose. He knows the guitar and how to teach it with sound pedagogy. Highly recommended !!!
Colbey is great! In just one lesson I learned a some helpful terminology, and even played a few notes and chords. It is clear that Colbey loves not only playing guitar, but music as a whole. He is very energetic and makes the lesson fun. He is very knowledgable in music and a skilled musician. He was very patient with my ultra beginner status. I've cut my nails in preparations for many future sessions.
Linda has been teaching piano to my two children for the past five years, and we could not ask for a more patient, caring, professional teacher. She genuinely loves what she does. She provides the right amount of motivation which comes from really getting to know each student. We are so happy with our children's progress. They are encouraged every step of the way while also being challenged. And we know that the real reason they are still even interested in piano is because of Linda.
When I started looking for a vocal instructor in Memphis I called several friends and church musicians. I explained that I had received ny bachelor's degree in voice and wanted to study with a technician not a vocal coach. At that time I was told there was no one available. Many years later I started asking again and was told about Barbara Posner. Voice study is unlike instrumental study in that your body is the instrument and many factors can contribute to tension and other problems. A technician can hear as well as see problems that need correction. Not every person responds to the same way of being corrected and since you can not point to an incorrect fingering or phrasing like it would be possible with an exterior instrument, she must find ways of helping to identify bad habits or problems a different way with each student. What 'feels' one way with one student might not describe the same way another student might experience the same thing. I have learned SO much from studying with her!
Mrs. Naids worked with Connor for a few years, I attribute a lot of his love for music to her. If a child is serious about their music, Mrs. Nails is definitely the one to go to. We love her, her love for the kids & their aspirations! Thank you Mrs. Naids!!
As a fellow musician/music teacher Jordan's professionalism and laid back demeanor put him heads above the competition
I can take a choir with average voices and lead them to become an outstanding group. The First United Methodist Church of Mt Pleasant had an average of 8 - 12 singers. When I left they were averaging 20 and above and were singing music at the top of their ability and loving it. I know how to challenge singing voices.
I am an experienced singer and voice teacher. I specialize in teaching my students about the vocal instrument and how to sing with appropriate technique. I also teach beginning piano and guitar lessons. I am a licensed Kindermusik educator and Preschool music teacher.
Incredibly helpful, responsive, and effective with a great teacher referral. Thank you!

Learn how to play whatever you hear. If you can whistle or hum, you can play it too. I can show you how your brain is programmed to play whatever instruments you desire.
I provide standard music theory education in the development of piano and music reading skills. In addition, I work with the student's personal level of "ear ability" to develop knowledge of chords, harmony, rhythm and improvisation in order to become an excellent, well-rounded musician.
Students learn a fun interactive environment while receiving constructive coaching when needed.
I take my job as a music educator very seriously. I want every student who comes in contact with me, whether it be for a few lessons or for years, to come away with a true education. I aim to provide valuable and useful knowledge that creates competence and confidence for music makers of all kinds.
