Just what I needed to get inspired again.”

 

"I can't thank you enough for putting together yesterday's production workshop with Lisa... I've attended a few different production workshops with other female orgs and I have to say, this one was my favorite! Being able to watch her work and then collaborate really helped me--especially it being 3 hours, most workshops are an hour or two which leaves little room to really take it all in. It helped me get unstuck in my journey!"

"knowledgeable, friendly, patient, and easy going."

 

“Lisa was so excellent at tailoring her suggestions to my needs and songwriting process. I really feel like I have the tools I need to break through my creative block now, to get back to recording with some confidence about it. She made herself super available, too, should any questions arise later. If I get stuck down the line, I will definitely be scheduling another lesson with her.”

"I thought Lisa K. was very good... organized and clear... I learned a few things and enjoyed her process."

Lisa holds a Master of Music Theory and a Bachelor of Composition and Music Theory, both from Michigan State University. She has taught college courses at SAE Institute (Nashville, TN) and Grand Rapids Community College (Grand Rapids, MI). Courses include music theory, ear-training/sightsinging, and trumpet lessons.

 

Lisa teaches private lessons (in-home and online) on trumpet, drum kit, piano, ukulele, and songwriting/music theory. She also regularly teaches workshops and classes in Logic Pro X on music theory, songwriting, and music production. She often appears as a guest teacher with Thinking Outside The BlocksOmni Sound Project, and Youth Empowerment Through Arts & Humanities (YEAH!).
