At Halcyon Diversified Trading, professional musician Tim Braun bestows string-pluckers of all experience levels with chord-striking knowhow via 30-minute private lessons.

With more than 10 years experience playing and recording in multiple styles and genres, Tim can transform clients’ previously pointless fingers into tune creators and melody midwives, and he’s gracefully flexible when it comes to scheduling lessons. To keep from spreading fret germs, customers must bring their own guitar.

Darin Parker's pipes have led him to performances at Carnegie Hall and a Grammy Award as a member of the Kansas City Chorale, but he doesn't rest on his soaring voice alone. He also helps aspiring musicians and established pianos alike find the right pitch with private voice and piano lessons and careful tuning, respectively. Every year, Parker aims to turn his talents to an even higher cause: an avid outdoorsman, Parker has used musical events to raise awareness for the long-distance bike rides and canoe trips he's undertaken to earn funds for the Alzheimer's Association.
