Treehouse 17 Guitar And Bass Lessons

Treehouse 17 Guitar And Bass Lessons

The first thing I want to get out of the way is that I do not have a degree in music education.  What I do have is fifteen years singing, playing guitar and bass in bands, and writing songs by myself and with partners and groups.  In that time I also attended the School for Music Vocations at Southwestern Community College for two years, where I learned music theory, some arranging, a baseline knowledge of jazz piano, and was introduced to Pro Tools and basic studio engineering work.  I have helped run home recording studios as well as recording my own bands' work in professional studios in Des Moines and St. Paul.   ...

Tyler Larson - Piano Instructor

Tyler Larson - Piano Instructor

5.0 2 Reviews
My name is Tyler Larson. I've been playing the piano and performing for almost 25 years. I've been teaching for 15 years. I'm classically trained. Despite being classically trained, my one-man piano and vocal performances are primarily pop and rock centric (think dueling pianos, but only one guy playing the piano). My ultimate goal is for my students to embrace their skills on the instrument and claim it as their own as fast as possible. After embracing their craft as their own, they begin to enjoy practicing and strive to share what they are learning by performing songs for others. My teaching method is structured around reading music, postu ... View Profile

96 years, and we're still here, working on staying another year. My grandfather started our store in 1922; 45 years ago we merged with another store that was started in 1921. Dave and Dorothy Leach at your service; between us we can sell, rent, teach, and repair all band and orchestra instruments. We speak piquito Espanol. No mucho, pero tratamos.

My guitar teaching is unique in that it is a collaborative lesson. I do teach the fundamentals and the basics, but I also allow the student to teach me, in a way. When individuals learn a new skill, everybody has their own way of doing things. I allow the student the freedom to use the fundamentals and basics the way they want, and work together in a team effort with them to see what is most effective FOR THEM.

Why do my students love to practice? My students are actively engaged in every lesson! They help select the music that they learn to play and they are respected and positively rewarded for all of their efforts! Now is the perfect time to learn how to play the piano with a fun-loving, classically trained piano teacher with over 20 years of successful experience! In addition to the basic repertoire, the student can choose to learn pieces that are heard on the radio, television, jazz, Broadway, classical, and more! My lessons are given on a grand piano in my beautiful town-home off of Meredith and Lockner in Urbandale. My Background - Form ... View Profile
