Jim Kishline Bass Guitar
I have found that some students learn best through their eyes, some through their hands, and some learn best through their ears. I try, with each individual student, to identify his or her strong suit, and teach him or her what approach, I feel, is the real value of private instruction.
As a professional, my experience includes duet jazz, bop and straight ahead jazz groups, R&B, big band, pit orchestra vintage pop, jazz/pop/standard trio and quartet, blues, symphonic work, record creation, writing for strings and horns, songwriting, light classical writing, and arranging.
I’m familiar with the big band tradition, and schooled in Ellington, Basie, and Nestico, so I’ve had success with students from jazz and big band programs in school.”
Howard Perkins Piano Keyboards
I have been teaching piano and keyboards for over 30 years in the Milwaukee and Waukesha County areas, either at music stores or for independent music education companies that provide in-home lessons. I received my training from the Wisconsin College of Music, now called the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music. I provide instruction in various genres of music for students of all ages from 5 years old and up. I also provide training for those who want to play in a combo settings.
Keith Watling - Guitar & Bass Guitar
I teach guitar being mindful of what my students want to learn and present to them guitar lessons that reflect that possibility. I tailor guitar lessons to fit that reality in a number of ways,
I teach kids a form of Suzuki method which is like the way we all learned how to speak. Guitar is the ultimate “ear” instrument, and seems to lend itself quite naturally to the Suzuki approach. It is much easier to master the technical complexities of the guitar if the student is able to focus on physical comfort, good posture, beautiful tone and musical expression without the distraction of decoding visual symbols.
For students who want to learn a specific style such as rock, blues, country or jazz I present them basic musical elements of those styles using existing tunes as projects to develop chords, melodies, time signatures, etc. to play in those styles of music.
I also teach traditional guitar lessons where emphasis is learning how to read music as it applies to the guitar. I use Hal leonard method books plus my own charts and written insights to play in styles that include rock, blues, jazz and country.
I also believe that learning the guitar should be an dynamic experience and above all fun.
