Kristopher T

Instruments:

I have been involved in the Kansas City music world since I was 5 years old. As a native of Independence, Missouri, I grew up in a rich musical heritage that included choral, orchestral, and gospel genres. As a student, I've studied at Brigham Young University, Central Missouri State University, UMKC Conservatory of Music and Dance, and have participated in a distance research program through The Florida State University. As a composer/arranger, I've written choral literature that spans from SATB to two-part youth choir settings. I have studied under and attended master-classes with Dr. Doug Helvering, Morton Lauridsen, and Stephen Paulus. In 2015, three of my 'Americana' arrangements will be published as a set of variations on American folk tunes by Santa Barbara Publishing Inc. As a singer, I've performed with the BYU Singers, the Grammy nominated Mormon Tabernacle Choir, Vox Luminese Chamber Choir, and have recently recorded media projects with San Francisco based mens ensemble Chanticleer. I have been a chorister and soloist in the Highland Music Festival, in Edinburgh, Scotland, and have participated in concerts in Carnegie Hall, The National Cathedral, Christ-Church Abbey, and London's famed Southwark Cathedral. This year, I was selected to participate in the Tallis Scholar Summer Camp program, under directors Rebekah Gilmore and Peter Phillips. As a conductor, I've worked with Mack Wilberg, Craig Jessop, Ron Staheli, Jo-Michael Scheibe, and Peter Bagley, among others. I have directed the BYU-Idaho Jazz and Symphonic Bands, and am the assistant director the Center Place Singers. I am also the founder and artistic director of Knsas City based chamber ensemble Ancora Chorale. In addition to my conducting duties, I currently hold membership with Spire Symphonic and Chamber Choirs, Te Deum Chamber Choir, and the KC Men's Ensemble, with which I recently performed at the KCDA state convention at Grace Cathedral, in Topeka, Kansas. I am a current member of the American Choral Directors Association, ASCAP, and the Missouri Music Educators Association. I also operate a full voice and piano studio in the Kansas City Metropolitan area, and serve as a board Advisor for the Spire Choir organization.  

Victor P

Instruments:

I am a passionate, innovative and creative musician with vast experience as a teacher, performer and producer. Music has been my life's work and joy since as far back as I can remember. I began my formal musical training at 6 years of age, and in 2004 I graduated from the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music with a Doctor of Music degree in Operation of Early Music Programs (Historical Performance).  I also hold an MM in Historical Musicology from Florida State University (1997), and a B.A. in Music from Marylhurst University, Marylhurst, OR (1993).  I have studied and performed most major genres, from the large, classical concert stage, to small clubs and music venues, to open-air festivals both public and private; "From Bach to Rock," if you will. I have also studied various non-Western musics in depth, most notably Northern Indian Hindustani classical music. The different musical perspectives these cultural studies have provided informs and expands the flexibility I like to have in fitting the lesson to the student.  Music is pure joy to me, and beyond the nuts and bolts of musical technique, it's that joy I wish more than anything to share with my students.

Eric T

Instruments:

I have been playing and writing music for 15 years. I began playing guitar when I was 15 years old, and throughout my high school career I played in several different bands. By the time I got to college I performed with a classic rock band and began studying music theory for piano. In Delta State Universities Interdisciplinary program I began to take in a lot of musical knowledge very quickly. I learned many tools including: songwriting, music production, audio recording, synthesis, piano, live sound, mixing and even took a film scoring class where we put music to video which is a lot of fun. Not only did I learn about midi and music industry standards, I also had the opportunity to work with really amazing artists. One of my professors Mike Lacopelli was the recording engineer for Parliament as well as ran live sound for Aretha Franklin for 8 years. Later in my college career I began playing synthesizer with a band and working for Delta State’s Studio. I also worked in their computer lab teaching music software programs to newer students; the software programs included: Logic, Pro Tools and Garage Band. I currently have my own home studio where I run Pro Tools. I perform in a rock band playing rhythm and lead guitar as well as some keyboard/ synthesizer work. We have played many benefit shows as well as paying gigs and we recently released an album that I engineered and produced. I love making music as well as learning and teaching. I love watching others as well as myself grow musically. With every new musical opportunity comes learning and it’s so fun and exciting to think of what is waiting.

D'Ann P

Instruments:

I have been a music teacher for 30 years and teach students beginning at preschool on up.  I taught my own 3 sons and now one is a composer/perfomer in voice, piano, violin, and guitar.  I teach both playing by ear and reading notes to beginners - my favorite level to teach.  I encourage parents to attend lessons so they can help practice at home, similar to the Suzuki method of training.   

Jonathan L

Instruments:

I began playing piano at age 5 and played for church since age 12. I graduated with two piano performance degrees with two of the greatest pianist of our generation,Valery Kuleshov and Stanislav Ioudenitch. Throughout my classical music career, I have particpated in several well-known music festivals, masterclasses, and performance venues including The Classics on Disney Boardwalk and a performance with the Imperial Symphony. I began teaching during my undergraduate degree and have taught privately for the past 10 years.

More Information About Piano Lessons

Some most popular keyboard or digital piano brands are Casio, Yamaha, Korg and Roland. When buying a keyboard, look for ones that have 61 - 88 keys, and have weighted hammer action. This means your keyboard will most closely resemble the playability of a real piano. Keyboards are convenient as they are cheap, space saving, portable and can be played with headphones. If it is within your means, we highly recommend investing in an acoustic piano, such as an upright, as they are better built and more satisfying to play.
Music lessons in your home offer a convenient option to learning music! Most of our students request in home lessons for this reason. As long as you have a piano or keyboard in your home, then you should be all set to start your lessons! Children who have never played an instrument before may feel more comfortable studying in their own home, as it may be less intimidating than going somewhere else. In home lessons decrease the time and gas money spent traveling to a different location.
Our piano lessons take place in a one-on-one setting and are customized to the requirements of each individual student. To get started, beginners will cover such aspects to piano playing as; posture, hand positions, fingering technique, scales, chords and applying these things to simple songs. They will also start to develop their knowledge of music theory, reading chord charts and sheet music. As their dexterity, co-ordination and speed progresses, they can start broadening their musical horizons. They can learn new chords, playing and performance techniques and styles, such as legato, staccato, glissando, runs, fills, as well as work on their sight reading and general theory (time signatures, modes, modulation...). Advanced players often want to study a particular genre of composer, or work on certain aspects of their playing and repertoire. This may include improvisation, or exploring different genres or styles, such as Avant Garde, Jazz or Classical piano.
Studying piano as an adult is a fun and educational experience. You will learn the technique of the instrument, and various selections of repertoire tailored to your needs and goals. Whether you are a beginner or advanced student, our instructor can help you improve your skills on the instrument. Many of our adult students enjoy playing their music at local clubs and venues in their communities.
Piano lessons for children will focus on learning the fundamentals of the technique of the instrument and learning to read music and rhythm. We suggest beginning piano lessons no earlier than age 4, due to the attention span of the child, as well as the strength they have in their hands for playing. Piano Lessons will offer an excellent introduction to learning music for a child. Music theory and musicianship skills will also be taught during the lessons. Piano lessons are a great choice for introducing the art of music to your child!
