Music has been a very important part of my life for a long time. I began taking piano lessons at age 9 and also started as a church musician that same year. Some people would say I was a very fast learner! I was, and still am, very interested in every aspect of music. I began singing in church and school a few years after that. I have played and performed a variety of styles of music but I have the most experience with Christian music, classical, pop and R & B. I am confident that I can teach you whatever style you are interested in! I am currently a high school choral director and a minister of music for church. I also play in a band with a group of my co-workers where we perform mostly pop, rock and oldies. I have been doing private lessons since I was in high school and have taught school music for 25 years. I've taught general education, choir, band and general music. I also do some composing.
I attended Jarvis Christian College (1984-1989) where I majored in All-Level Music Education. I received a Bachelor of Science in Education degree in May of 1989.
After I was hired at my first school, I started working on additional certification at Texas Christian University and Texas Wesleyan University. I completed the required subjects and received certification in general education in 1991. I am currently certified in 3 areas: General Music 1-8, All-Level Music K-12 and General Education 1-8.

I believe that all students can and will learn something if they put forth some effort! I also believe that learning music should be fun! I'm a pretty laid back person but I am very serious about my time and yours being well spent! I use a method book for piano lessons, as well as, a variety of other materials based on your interest and level. I also use a variety of materials for voice lessons. At the first lesson I will find out what your goals for learning music are. I will also find out what types of music you are interested in and we'll go from there! I do believe in challenging students. I do expect you to sincerely want to learn and to demonstrate your interest through weekly practice and attendance at your lessons.

As far back as I can remember I have always enjoyed performing music. I can remember during my elementary school years how I would play drums during church service. Some days I would sneak in my dad's closet to play his saxophone. I began learning how to play saxophone in middle school and by the time I was in high school I was learning piano, performing jazz, and composing music.
I went on to get a Bachelor of Music at the University of North Texas. I have been performing professionally for over 18 years. I also have taught band for 11 years in Dallas ISD. I enjoy teaching and mentoring other up and coming musicians. It's a joy to see another world open up to them through music.
Through my warm and positive personality and experience as a certified music teacher and music performer, I understand how to meet the social and educational needs of each music student. I am well versed at solving problems and helping students thrive and reach their full potential. I think that I do this best by personalizing the instruction experience for each unique situation. I love to encourage students and help them discover the music in them.

Thomas Horter is an accomplished flute performer, teacher, and repair technician based in Dallas, Texas. He is a former "Talent Grant" student of the Conservatorium van Amsterdam in the Netherlands. Thomas has performed a variety of works ranging in style from Marin Marais to Maurizio Pisati. As a soloist, chamber, and orchestral musician, he has performed in venues all over the world from the Bass Hall in Ft. Worth to Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ in Amsterdam. Thomas specializes in contemporary music as well as 18th and 19th century historically informed performance.
Thomas' former teachers also come from diverse and international backgrounds, most of them performing with the top orchestras and conductors across the world. They include Marieke Schneemann, Kersten McCall, Vincent Cortvrint, Harrie Starreveld, Marten Root, Terri Sundberg, Jan Crisanti, LeeAnne Thompson and Christina Jennings.
Thomas is the proud owner of his own business, Thomas Horter Flute Services.
After his education in Amsterdam, Thomas' teaching style draws from the Northern European tradition. This tradition enforces that music education should come from a point of knowledge - stylistically, technically, and artistically. This exemplary way of teaching suits a wide range of students, from the ambitious high school student, through to the curious adult amateur.
As a teacher Thomas feels like a travel agent, advising students on their own "flute journey." As a consequence, the structure of the lessons often depends upon the personal goals of the student. Thomas has experience teaching children, high school students, pre-college division music majors, college students and adult amateurs - students who have played in school and community orchestras, churches and simply for their own personal enjoyment.
As a Dallas-Ft. Worth native, Thomas is familiar with the North Texas music education scene. He was the principal flutist of the Fort Worth Youth Orchestra from 2005 to 2007. During that time, he won the soloist and high school masterclass competition of the Texas Flute Society (2006) and was a member of the National Flute Association's National High School Flute Choir (2005-2007).
