Hello! My name is Kayla and I have been performing, recording and training for more than a decade. Music has always been a part of my life and I have a bachelor's degree in business and music. I absolutely love sharing my knowledge with others and helping my community through teaching, volunteering and giving them the wonderful gift of music! I am a vocalist, mult-instrumentalist and song-writer. I have performed with famous pop stars such as Kelly Clarkson and Ashley Simpson and performed all over the Saint Louis metro area. If you're ready to learn a new skill or refine your current skill-set, I'm ready to help!
I began teaching almost five years ago privately freshly out of high school. I taught for two years privately and then taught with a music company for the last two and one-half years. Because of my extensive classical and jazz training, teaching beginning all the way to advanced students was a pleasure. I have found that every student has their own learning style and that it is my duty as an instructor to adapt to their particular learning style. I pride myself on being a versatile, engaging and personable instructor.
My teaching style may vary depending upon the student. I have several books and other teaching material available for my students. These include: Berkley Music Theory I and II, several Hal Leonard, and Fischer books and more! Lesson material will mostly depend upon the student's goals and current skill-set. EVERY lesson will consist of: assessing and tracking the student's skill-set, solidifying the student's goals along with my goals for the student, and creating a plan of action to follow in order to reach these goals.

Some students thrive on reward, some thrive on competition and some students thrive on praise etc. I have several books and other teaching material available for my students.

Lessons with Kayla were very fun. I was preparing to audition for my women's chamber choir and with the help and guidance from Kayla, I made it! I highly recommend her as an instructor.
Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.Ok
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
