Performing arts: Better in Community

Community

Life should not be lived solo! It is my aim to connect students in rich community through a variety of opportunities: vocal and instrumental ensembles, acting classes, Musikgarten classes, summer intensives, and recitals.

 
 
 
 

Lessons/Classes

Each student has a unique combination of talents and natural abilities. I aim to tailor my teaching to the individual student as he/she strives toward his/her ambitions and dreams. I offer a wide array of options that can be categorized into the following instruction areas.

Voice Lessons

Offered to all ages beginning to advanced. I teach lessons in-home, at Jennings Music & Education center, or even via online formats such as Facebook Messenger Chat. Lessons can focus on the singing or speaking voice depending on the students goals. Click here for more details.
 

Acting Lessons

Sometimes one-on-one coaching can be a wonderful benefit for a student with a keen interest in drama. These lessons focus on characterization, vocal tools, improvisation, etc. Contact me directly for details.

Piano Lessons

Offered to all ages, beginning to intermediate. I teach lessons in-home, at Jennings Music & Education center, or even via online formats such as Facebook Messenger Chat. Click here for more details.
 

Musikgarten Group Classes

These classes develop foundations in the performing arts for the younger levels (babies through preschool) and specifically music/piano foundations at the older levels (Kindergarten through 5th-6th grade) Click here for more details.

Impact

Ask any teacher why they teach and virtually always the answer could be summarized in one word: IMPACT. When we see the smiles, the “ah-ha!” moments, the changed lives, all the labor suddenly turns sweet.

Here’s what one parent said:

“My daughter has taken piano lessons from Miss Krista for five years. What a fantastic teacher she is! I’m amazed by how much music theory my daughter understands at age 9. And besides providing excellent musical training, Krista has also helped develop a love of drama and performance in her……”

Years Teaching

It’s so exciting to see where students end up. Some have gone on to pursue professional careers in music, some are using the lessons to sing to their babies. Everyone’s story is different, but all have benefited.

Performing Arts Camps

Directing these summer intensives is perhaps my favorite thing of all. I have no idea how many hundreds of children have come through these camps. Every now and again I run into one of these past students. Every time it is pure joy!

Shows/musical theater performances

Whether children’s musicals or teen/adult dinner theaters, shows are a blast! Sure, directing a show is exhausting, but there’s nothing more rewarding! I love sharing a good message with folks and, even more, I love equipping others to share that message.
