Mobile Music Teachers was founded and currently managed by LeAnn Parker along with her husband Ben Parker. The Parker’s have had the privilege of serving the Kansas City area for almost a decade. LeAnn and Ben both hold their music degrees from the University of Missouri-Kansas City. LeAnn has her degree in Music Education, has taught in Kansas City for 15+ years as well as overseeing Mobile Music Teachers since its’ beginning. Ben’s degree is in Violin Performance and (outside his day job) has the privilege of playing with the Des Moines Symphony and Kansas City Symphony as well as assist with Mobile Music Teachers.
LeAnn and Ben have been married since 2006 and have three children. Boys Aidan and Ezra (ages 5 and 3) and sweet little girl Eloise (1 year old) who light up their world. LeAnn and Ben joke about their children becoming athletes since they are both musicians… they’ve yet to find out but either would be fine with them!
Mobile Music Teachers started “by accident” as LeAnn did not set out to start a music school. Simply loving to teach, she taught private piano lessons with the desire to pass on musical enjoyment & excellence to her students. After several years, LeAnn transitioned from teaching in a traditional music studio to traveling to student’s homes. LeAnn found that her students were more successful when taught in their homes as well as it being a more convenient option for families. When LeAnn’s studio grew to more then she could teach on her own, a second piano teacher joined the “team” and Mobile Music Teachers was born.
The Mobile Music Teacher team is now made up of teachers who teach a large range of musical instruments. LeAnn personally interviews, evaluates and carefully selects each teacher before they join the Mobile Music Teacher team. As a teacher and mother, she believes that this personal selection assures that the best possible teachers are on their team. LeAnn also believes that personality blend between teacher and student is vital for learning success. Because of this, LeAnn also personally meets each new family before sending a teacher to their home. Ben is also vital in making Mobile Music Teachers an efficient running school. Behind the scenes – he works as the accountant making sure things run smoothly and conveniently for families and teachers alike.
