Our music lesson students will have the opportunity to take lessons from the comfort of their own home or in one of the teachers studios. Careful attention is placed on each student to ensure a custom lesson plan. Our music teachers understand that every student has different needs and abilities and therefore the lessons will be planned with that knowledge in mind.
lessons are available in the following areas:
Instruments: Piano, Voice, Trumpet
Music is not made by the instrument be it voice, piano, trumpet or any other. Remember music is made by and comes through The Musician! I teach about how to be a musician. When students feel like musicians it fosters a greater sense of ownership and accomplishment bringing the joy needed to advance exponentially. As a students finds his or her internal "musician" we, teacher and student together, are moving along the same path making performance easy rather than a worrisome struggle.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice, Violin, Cello, Viola, Trumpet, Trombone, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Drums, Bass Guitar, Recorder, Euphonium, French Horn, Tuba, Mallet Percussion, Bassoon, Keyboard, Acoustic Guitar
I have 7 years of public and charter school: General Music, Band, and Choir teaching experience. In both Texas and Oklahoma. I started private teaching in 97 for a studio where I taught Group Piano, Group Voice, private Voice, piano, clarinet, saxophone and trumpet. I went to another studio and taught the same group. I then started my own studio mainly teaching piano and voice. I have since add Violin, Cello, French Horn, Trumpet, Trombone, Guitar, Bassoon, Clarinet, Flute and Saxophone to my lesson offering. I am a certified Teacher for All Levels Vocal and Instrumental Music from Pre-K to 12th grade in the State of Texas and Oklahoma. I have played French Horn for 26 years, Piano self taught from age 5, currently am a pianist for a local church. I am a member of a community choir and active receive continued vocal training.
Instruments: Piano, Voice
I welcome students of all ages from five years and up. My teaching experience began over 20 years ago when I taught voice lessons to several of the choir students at Choctaw High School. I am passionate about music and about helping find the unique approach for each student. Music Theory is the language of music and I focus a portion of each lesson learning that language. I think it is important to incorporate both classical repertoire and music that is of specific interest to the student. The classical repertoire will reinforce the technique and specific lessons covered. The other pieces should also reinforce specific concepts and skills, but should be music the student enjoys. I strive to keep the lessons and the practice time engaging and rewarding. I cannot stress enough that music is a talent, and just as importantly a skill that anyone can develop. Like anything worthwhile that will last a lifetime, it is not developed over night. It takes time, commitment and consistency to become a skilled musician. I look forward to growing with my students and celebrating their accomplishments large and small.
Instruments: Piano, Voice
Voice Lessons: I start my lessons with vocal warmups and excercises to help strengthen and develop a students vocal abilities. After vocalizing, I begin working on the repertoire that I have assigned the prior week. The songs that each student will sing will depend on what style he/she may be interested in performing or studying. I always choose age appropriate material, and a piece that the student will enjoy. I will also help a student with any outside pieces for school or the community. Piano Lessons: For beginning students who are very young, I start with Bastien Piano Basics or Hal Leonard Essential Elements. For adults/teens, I use the KJOS Bastien book for adults or the upper level books by Hal Leonard. I also have my students play popular pieces or holiday pieces of their choosing in addition to their classical repertoire. After each student has progressed and understands the concepts, I will introduce some basic theory ideas and listening/identification skills. I also believe in working on scales and arpeggios to better develop a student's understanding of keys and coordination when playing.
Teaching Methods: For younger students, I always want to make sure our lessons stay fun, while encouraging growth at the same time, so I usually let them pick a song they like, and then I assign another to assist with their musical development. For older students and adults, we really dive into technique and vocal health, with a strong emphasis on technicalities like breath support and placement, and then use that foundation to branch out into multiple genres. Italian arias, classic musical theatre, contemporary rock - all are valid forms of musical expression and I believe singers should be equipped with the tools to tackle each genre with competence and flair.
Teaching Styles: I always start with a strong Classical Foundation, and also specialize in Musical Theatre and Contemporary Styles. Some students love classical music, and we work on Italian arias...while others love 80s Metal Bands, and we work on healthy ways to approach contemporary music. For Musical Theatre, I make sure my students have a wide range of genres at the ready, so they are equally prepared to audition for both My Fair Lady or Hamilton. I value technique, and students learning technique in their own bodies, so they're able to excel on their own after our work together.

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
