We'll then reach out to the teachers for you.
Schedule the risk-free trial lesson directly with the teacher.
Continue with that teacher or try someone else.
I prefer a relaxed approach, I try to gear the lesson towards what you really want to learn.
Originally from Memphis,TN, I am currently pursuing a Bachelors of Arts in Flute Perfromance at Texas Southern University here in Houston,TX. Since I've been here I've had the opportunity to perform with the many ensembles on campus (I've actually been Principal Player in most of them). I've performed with many local ensembles throughout the city including the Gulf Coast Concert Band. I have also been featured on records with gospel artist Zacardi Cortez and jazz legend Joe Sample. I have been teaching privately for the last 3 years and I have found it to be a great experience!
I am currently the opera director at Arkansas State University where I also teach voice lessons. I have primarily taught voice to undergraduate students who are voice minors or music education majors. I have also taught at the Opera Memphis Summer Conservatory as a voice teacher and director.
I'm a spirited passionate instructor who loves teaching students. As a 2009 Bethel College graduate with a Bachelor's in music education, I value education and seek to inspire my students. I've had the opportunity to play all over the world and meet wonderful and gifted musicians. I'm also a composer. I believe it is never too early or late to pursue the dream of becoming a skilled musician.
I am very good at using life example to help students understand what I mean. Although practice is very boring, I could help students explore various practice methods, like the rhymich changes etc. to help them find out more entertainment. I am very detailed in teaching to tell them how to analyze music and put analysisi into playing and many skills to help them overcome some difficulties in differeinent playing factor.

Many parents start their children with music lessons to enrich their lives and give them a fun activity outside of school. Music is a great outlet for students of all ages because it challenges both the mind and the body. Many studies have been conducted suggest music can improved test scores in math and science, and can also promote improved language development in young children. The biggest benefit of studying music is that it lays a foundation for a lifetime appreciation of music!
The teachers in our network bring the creative stimulation and structure of a private music school setting to the privacy and comfort of your own home. A busy course load, heavy parental duties, or a full work schedule doesn't need to get in the way of your music lessons experience. We can come to you!

This is the 1st time I've ever taken lessons, and Robert has been a pleasure to work with. I've made quick progress and have enjoyed the process. I'm always listening for those tips that you can't find in a book. I can count on Robert to be strict on the fundamentals and am clear it will make a difference in the long run.

Our daughter has only been playing the piano since March. Tony replaced our other teacher who had a job transfer and could no longer teach. Tony is fun and encouraging. My daughter is playing Taylor Swift and Christmas songs and is playing the piano more than ever before. Very happy so far with Mr Tony

I had always wanted to take vocal lessons, but was very nervous about it until I had the opportunity to have Ali as my instructor. She made me feel very comfortable and helped me realize my strengths while giving me other areas to work on and strengthen. I liked how Ali had me sing out of my "comfort" zone to realize my vocal range. It is obvious that Ali loves music and sharing that love with her students. She is very good at what she does and works well with both male and female voices. I highly recommend Ali and give her solid 5 stars

Dan gave private clarinet lessons to my daughter, Annie, for two years. During that time, she excelled as a member of the middle school band, and maintained first-chair. Dan is an excellent teacher, and Annie looked forward to having one-on-one time with him. In addition to practicing pieces with her, he helped her with scales and greatly improved her tone quality.

Bill has been great with my 2 young children (age 3 & 6). He has integrated games into the lessons - they have enjoyed showing us how to play the games when it is time to practice piano. Bill has been easy to contact and rescheduling has not been a problem if we have a conflict at our regular lesson time.

"Richard is a very talented and a patient teacher. He teaches my 6 year old daughter in the comfort of our home and he is very regular. He follows a learning book and mixes his lessons to bring difficulty and technicality while keeping it interesting for my daughter. My daughter was difficult to work with at the beginning but he was able motivate her in every possible way. As a parent I make an effort to learn with my daughter so that when my daughter practices I am able to guide and correct her and Richard is very generous to take the time to give provide me concepts. I am extremely happy with Richard and his ability to teach children."

“Lynn has taught my daughter guitar for 9 years. She has always managed to keep her engaged and provide an exceptional learning experience. She tailors the lesson specifically to the student’s interests and abilities. She provides many opportunities for students to showcase their talents outside of lessons. We love working with Lynn.” Maureen Young, Dir. of Finance, Aug 2015

Amber is personal and cares about her students. She is flexible in her schedule and maintains a professional attitude in her lessons. Her want for her students to succeed makes her excel as a teacher. She is very knowledgeable about music and extremely experienced. Additionally, she includes external activities aside from lessons for the students who wish to advance themselves externally. Really a great teacher who offers great opportunity.

Karleen has really turned it around for me. My previous teacher (not from Musika) had me feeling anxious, upset, and incapable...NOT the desired result! Karleen's method is clear, appropriate for my beginning level, and (best of all) actually lets me achieve some progress! I'm actually looking forward to my lessons now!
Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.Ok
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
