Meet 9-yr-old Mikayla Hatfield, who plays piano and sings!  Mikayla’s favorite song is “Cool Kids” by her favorite group, Echosmith.  Mikayla is a quick learner, and puts a lot of effort into her playing.  Her favorite part about lessons is her instructor, “Ms Kathi”, and how much fun they have in learning together.  Her favorite time to practice is after dinner when the day starts winding down.  Mikayla has dreams of being a true pianist and singer/songwriter when she grows up, and based on her latest performance at our fall recital, we all believe she is well on her way!  When asked how music can help change the world, she believes it simply helps people come together.  Outside of music, Mikayla enjoys soccer, basketball, playing with her brother Jacob, and throwing the frisbee with her dog Indigo. 

According to her instructor Kathi, Mikayla is a talented student with a shining smile and a kind heart.  Recently, a whole new world seemed to open up to Mikayla as she was given the opportunity to learn music “not from the book.”  Towards the beginning of lessons, Mikayla asked to learn a Christian worship song, and just after starting Kathi quickly noticed that she had a beautiful and natural singing voice!  She was also able to learn several new chords and became familiar with song structure from this experience.  Keep up the great work Mikayla!

In November of 2015 I had decided to really start learning how to play the Guitar after years of just knowing a few Chords and Rhythm and playing the same old stuff over and over, and through a business relationship I found out about Music Flow Teaching and little did I know at that time what a huge impact this was going to have on my life. My goal in the beginning was to learn how to Solo and not just copy or mimic what other Guitar players had done but be able to create my own solos, I was shocked at how quickly my Instructor was able to get the basic scales needed to start this process going, and how fast I was able to absorb these techniques and forms to get started on my journey to my Goal. Now that I have been doing this for over a year and a half it seems like every lesson just provides a quicker learning experience as I get more and more of the capabilities in my hand. I really like how my Instructor is able to adapt quickly and change from lesson to lesson to work on a technique or form instead of just sticking to some plan that someone else has developed. What I have learned since starting with Music Flow has affected my life in more ways than just music alone, it has reignited a passion that had been gone for a long time as I look so forward to getting home and playing everyday, it has also helped every other part of my life as well. I now seem to focus on task better and and pay more attention to detail than before I started on this journey. From the deepest part of my Heart I would like to just say Thank You Music Flow Teaching and I cant wait to see what the next year holds because if it is anything like the last year my advancement will be exponential.
