Private Guitar, Beginner Piano, and Flute Teacher
Erin is passionate about creativity and adventure. She enjoys
exploring every art form including music, painting, sketching,
sculpting, photography, poetry, spoken word and more. Erin has been
drawn to music and musical instruments since she was a child, and she
had a flute studio in Texas. She has traveled to over 60 countries and
has discovered that music goes beyond languages and cultures; it has a
unique way of touching and opening human hearts. Erin teaches every
aspect of playing instruments including technique and music theory,
but she is most passionate about helping others connect with and find
joy in the music that they are playing and/or creating.
Private Piano Teacher
Lelan is an aspiring songwriter/recording artist in the Silverthorne area. Originally from Waynesboro, GA, he started training in classical piano at the age of 7. As he attended college, his emphasis shifted from classical repertoire to jazz and blues improv - creating rather than replicating. He graduates in December 2021 with a Bachelor of Commercial Music degree from Liberty University. Aside from teaching piano, Lelan is an assistant worship pastor at Dillon Community Church, where he helps run the church recording studio.
Private Voice Instructor
Kiana (she/her) is a multi-hyphenate theatre artist who is passionate about using the performing arts to help people feel seen so that they can embrace their power. She loves performing, directing, stage managing, and producing theatre. When she’s not working on theatre, she’s a Breckenridge ski instructor and also enjoys craft projects, sea turtle facts, and eating ice cream. She graduated from Muhlenberg College with a BA in theatre. As a vocal coach, she believes that there is no such thing as a "bad" voice and that everyone has the ability to sing beautifully. Her personal vocal journey makes her excited to work with students who haven’t discovered their full confidence in their singing voices yet, but are excited to learn more about technique and artistry. Kiana’s background is specifically in musical theatre and pop music, and in lessons she emphasizes celebrating the unique things our voice can do to tell a story and connect to our most authentic self through music.
