Acoustic Guitar, Arrangement and Composition, Audio Engineering, Bass Guitar, Blues Guitar, Classical Guitar, Classical Piano, Composition, Country Guitar, Film Scoring, Guitar, Music Performance, Music Recording, Music Theory, Piano, Pro Tools Software, Songwriting, Synthesizer, Ukulele

About Me

11 years ago, I picked up a guitar and began my life-long pursuit of music. This pursuit has led me in a wide variety of directions. Today, I am the worship leader for Living Life Church, a private guitar instructor at Covenant Christian Academy and Creative Guitar Learning, a freelance producer, film-composer, performing musician, and teacher. Some of my credits and projects are available on my LinkedIn profile and my Reverbnation profile.

I have a passion for a wide variety of styles of music. For several years, I was the lead guitarist, singer, and songwriter for multiple independent bands, the most notable being an indie psychedelic band called Tod The Fox. I have led worship for Grace Fellowship UMC, Brazos Pointe Church, Bear Creek Community Church, The Cornerstone College Ministry at UTA, and the BSM at UTA in varying capacities. At UTA, I studied Jazz and Classical guitar under acclaimed guitarists Sam Walker and Billy Robertson. Here, I also studied theory, piano, sight-singing, and music-production extensively. I graduated Magna Cume Laude with a Bachelor of Music-Media from UTA. I have also played bass guitar for several contract gigs and performances.

My teaching style varies from student to student. Music is a wonderfully diverse subject and every student has his own aspirations. I will do my best to cater each lesson to the student's goals and interests. Whether that is classical guitar method, shredding electric guitar solos, jazz, folk, country, or anything in between.

A few of my favorite artists include: Michael Gungor, Joe Pass, Andrew Bird, Chopin, Led Zeppelin, Glen Hansard, and Radiohead.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons will vary significantly from student to student. Not only does every student have different goals in mind, they all learn differently as well. I do my best to customize my lessons for each student's goals and needs. A typical guitar, bass, or piano lesson may involve music-reading, chord studies, technical work, scale practice, and theory.

I consider myself a healthy balance between professional and light-hearted. As much as I want to make efficient use of the lesson-time, my primary goal is for the student to truly understand and enjoy music.

I have worked hard to be a flexible musician and teacher. I am competent in jazz, rock, classical, contemporary, blues, worship, etc., and will be happy to teach any (or all) of these styles to any student.

*** Studio Equipment ***
My at-home studio includes:

- Stools
- A keyboard
- Recording equipment
- Internet access
- A printer
- A library of music resources
- Multiple guitars
- A bass guitar
- Double input amplifier
- Music stand
- Metronome/tuner
- Recording studio quality monitors

*** Travel Equipment ***
- Travel Music Stand
- Metronome/Tuner/Recorder
- Guitar and accessories
- Bass and accessories
- Notebooks/binders
- Staff Paper
- Tablature
- Multiple theory/technique/music books

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in contemporary, rock, blues, and worship guitar. But I also have extensive experience in jazz and classical guitar.

For piano, I teach beginner to intermediate level students in a variety of genres. I use piano on a daily basis for composing, arranging, and performing.

For bass, I can also teach a variety of genres. I specialize in blues/rock/contemporary but have experience in classical and jazz bass as well.

***DISCLAIMER***
Although my travel radius says 10 miles, I am very open to trying to work lessons out that are somewhat outside of that radius. As a full-time musician/teacher I travel all over the metroplex for different gigs/jobs throughout the week, so it's completely possible that I am in your part of town on certain days and it wouldn't be a problem for me to stop by for a lesson. If you are outside of my preferred radius and would like to request a lesson with me, simply contact TakeLessons and let them know and they will e-mail me the request. Also, keep in mind that if it is far enough outside of my usual commute i may still be able to take the lesson, but need to ask for a higher rate.

*** Lesson Details ***
I have a quiet and comfortable teaching studio. Many of my students are online. I have a very good online system for teaching and have students worldwide.
My basic teaching philosophy is that I teach the student...with the subject. Each student is unique to me.
I allow students to send me materials (via email) before each lesson that I review beforehand so I come to the scheduled less time prepared.
I also have a recording studio that allows students to "hear" as well as see (if it is on paper) their results.
I frequently blog and write articles for other website journals and send out notices to students using various social media.
I use various textbooks and other supplemental materials so that a student has materials that gets them from "A" to "Z" in a measured way.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Finale
DAW - Reaper
Many other programs used for teaching and recording online.

*** Specialties ***
All subjects related to the Composing and Production of music.

Michael E. Dallas, TX

Subjects Taught

Banjo, Bass Guitar, Guitar, Music Performance, Music Theory, Piano, Songwriting

About Me

My name is Mike E. I am a resident of Lake Highlands. I played by ear for eleven years before starting training on music and how to teach by Mr. Terrill Gardner. Terrill took me through music from the Rolling Stones all the way through "Modern Method for Guitar" books I, II, and III from Berklee College in Boston. He was my mentor and taught me a method that he spent thirty years perfecting. It works, guaranteed. He also taught me on bass guitar and banjo. I can help you.

Lessons are customized to meet the needs of the individual, with the primary focus on playing songs as soon as possible. I am talking about playing along with the pros, not reading notes for months and playing "Mary Had a Little Lamb." I have combined my "by ear" knowledge with Terrill's training to provide a unique approach to music, chords, music theory, ear training, and more. Even piano lessons start with learning chords. Chords are what the musicians play behind the vocals.

Give me thirty minutes of your time and I will show you why students keep coming back to me, even after stopping for a while.

*** Lesson Details ***
Note Reading provided on request only.

Beginner Guitar - We start with simple chords and eight easy one-verse songs. These teach chords, timing, hand technique, ear training, song construction, and the start of music theory.

Intermediate to Advanced Guitar - all of the above plus tablature, different styles, advanced chord theory, performance, lead guitar, and more.

Beginning Piano - We start with simple chords and go straight into the songs the students like. These teach chords, timing, hand technique, ear training, song construction, and the start of music theory. I can teach you every major chord on piano in one sentence.

Bass Guitar - We start with learning the location of notes on the neck and move immediately into major chords so you can start playing with songs. The chords are divided into their single notes, but viewed as chords because that is what the other musicians are playing during the vocals.

Banjo - I teach from the book "I Can Teach Myself Banjo" but you really need a teacher/mentor to show you all the things that seeing and being able to ask questions covers that just can't be covered in a book.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano, amplifiers, cords, computer, free WiFi, all in a spacious room with a window for parents to view the teacher and student. Parents have a large, comfortable waiting area. Restrooms and water fountain provided.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in mentoring, being a friend as well as a teacher. I have never gotten mad at a student and never will.

I have written three books on chord theory, "Chordmaster Chord Theory for Keyboard," "Chordmaster for Beginner Piano Students," and "Chordmaster Chord Theory for Guitar." You can learn more about these online.
