TAKE HER!!!

Julie has been an amazing teacher! I've been doing lessons with her for almost six months now. I came in with very little experience (I couldn't even match pitch!) She's taught me how to control my breathing, how to increase my range without straining my voice; most of all, she's given me confidence in myself and my singing ability. I'm now singing various songs from some of my favorite artists, singing in my home and car and actually liking my sound production, and now I'm getting numerous complements from my friends and family! Julie is extremely knowledgable, patient, and encouraging and I would recommend her to anyone who is looking to learn how to master their voice and have fun while doing it!

a safe environment for passion and skill to ignite

Julie has a passion for music and vocal training, and i'm so thankful to be taking lessons from her. I love to sing, but became discouraged a few years ago and thought it was time to give it up. When I came to Julie, she helped me evaluate my weaknesses and strengths, and is teaching me overcome my fears and insecurities. My breath control and vocal range are growing stronger each week, and Julie's encouragement and daily vocal exercises are giving me the confidence to sing and perform in a way I didn't think I could. Her studio has a warm, inviting atmosphere, and is equipped with the tools to help you reach your goals.

About Michael

Hi I'm Mike! I've been playing/teaching drums for over 20 years. I started out playing in Punk and Metal bands. I later got interested in Jazz which led me to the University of North Texas. I graduated there in 99 and boy did I learn a thing or two. Attending such a highly competitive school taught me a few things about learning new concepts and setting goals. I have since adopted a philosophy that yields results and have eliminated the "busy work" approach that most drum teachers use. My main interest is to see my students achieve their dreams! *** Lesson Details *** I'm a pretty laid back teacher. I let student drive the intensity of the lessons. I have a few set goals that all my students must achieve but it is up to the student to determine how soon they meet them. ...

I am thrilled to be working with Michael! I am a first time "OLDER" student who has never played the drums. Michael is an excellent teacher and I am very comfortable working with him! His personality and teaching style works great for me! I like his hands on learning approach and feel like I am moving forward at a good pace. I have only had three lessons, but so far so good! If you are looking for a drum teacher Michael is wonderful!

5/5- Mike is an excellent drum teacher for any skill level. He doesn't waste time with useless exercises, but instead shows you how to become a drummer that can creatively express yourself in the moment. Plus he has some of the best prices on here! If you're on the fence, I highly, highly recommend lessons with him!

Michael is a great instructor. I have been taking lessons with him a couple weeks now and I can say that I have learned a lot. He teaches in a way where you learn at your own comfortable pace, and makes it enjoyable to progress onto the next step. His teaching style is amazing because you do not feel pressured into learning specific material, he let's you choose your own songs to play hands on, instead of memorizing predetermined ones out of a book. Before going to his lessons, I had a hard time learning material by hand and simply free styling. Michael is definitely the instructor for you if you want to push yourself out of your comfort zone like I did, or if you pick up on things through hearing!

Guitar · In studio
I am a retired faculty/staff member of The University of Texas at Austin with degrees in education. An 8th grade teacher diagnosed me to be musically challenged, and I was told not to make an effort to learn music. After retiring I decided to get a guitar and try to learn something about music. I had been trying to learn how to play on my own, but I soon realized that I needed a teacher. The first teacher I tried could not answer my questions, and inspire progress. Aimee demonstrated a very high excellence in teaching proficiency in the first lesson. While in her studio I observed her teaching young students, and it was obvious to me that she could teach both young and older students equally well. Have confidence that you can learn music with Aimee's guidance.

Electric Guitar · In studio
I'm a new student to Aimee, but have played guitar for years. My goal is to learn some music theory, understand chord progressions and positions, improve technique, and learn how to learn songs: how to break them down into chunks, so it's not overwhelming. It's already clear that she and I are going down that path. Best of all, she is patient, which should be incredibly important to any student.

Piano · In studio
My nine year old daughter has been taking piano lessons from Aimee for nearly three years. I really like Aimee's approach. For beginner students, she uses structured lessons teaching the all important fundamentals. As my daughter advances, Aimee continues to stress theses fundamentals combined with tailor-made lessons drawing from my daughter's musical interests. Plus, her strong communication skills go beyond from behind the piano. Her administration of her services make it a breeze to arrange lessons, make up lessons, and the like. Lastly, Aimee is just a down right cool lady, who clearly loves music and enjoys teaching what she loves. Thanks, Aimee!

Jameson J. Austin, TX

About Jameson

If you are a seasoned performer, I will guide you in developing agility, musicality, range, dynamics, and phrase shape. If you are a first-time vocal student, I will provide an engaging, supportive environment to find your voice. My instruction is based on professionalism, experience and range from more than 25 years of singing and 13 years of teaching. I have advanced education in vocal performance and am an AmSAT certified teacher of the Alexander Technique, which allow me to integrate the intellectual and physical aspects of singing. I use my energy, attentiveness and creativity to tailor lessons towards each student's unique needs. I base my vocal technique on the Italianate tradition of operatic "bel canto," but also incorporate broad experience in musical theater, jazz, and ...

Jameson's knowledge and instruction go well beyond the physical mechanics of singing. His lessons bring you to the mental approach to singing and performing. He somehow makes the abstract tangible, at least in so far as it can be applied in a real way. Lastly, I don't think I ever had a lesson where we did not share some laughter.

I worked with Jameson for a year and a half, and it transformed singing from a source of self-doubt into something I do with confidence and joy. The Alexander technique works wonders for really being able to understand how to use every part of your body to find the best sound. Lessons were always comfortable, fun, and exciting as I learned new ways to feel comfortable throughout my entire range. I seriously envy his Texan students!

“Indistinguishable from Magic”

Jameson is a perfect teacher…superlatively knowledgeable, experienced, talented, effective, professional, understanding, encouraging, friendly, and fun.

I’m an electrical engineering graduate student. In love with (listening to) classical voice and musical theatre, and desperate to learn to sing, but with no applicable musical intuition or experience, I began taking lessons with Jameson early last year.

Whenever I have a question (and believe me, I ask a LOT of questions), Jameson is ready with a comprehensive, informed answer. Whenever I struggle with a particular exercise or skill or phrase, Jameson is ready with an effective remedy. When I sense (or he senses) that something doesn't feel or sound quite right, he will tell me which senses I should pay attention to and which senses might lead me astray if I focus on them while singing. He has always worked hard and effectively to teach me how to put and keep my mind and body in the proper frame for singing (regardless of the state I'm in when I enter the studio), sometimes by introducing Alexander Technique exercises and principles, informed by human anatomy. When we work on a piece, starting with the bare melody, Jameson guides me through deeper and deeper levels of understanding and connection with the piece so that my performance continually improves and becomes progressively more organic. Jameson never bends me toward a particular sound; he helps make my experience and my sound intensely personal, while always improving the quality of that sound and promoting a healthy singing style.

Thanks to Jameson, I’m now well on my way. I hear and appreciate and love music as never before. As for singing…I am delighted beyond words by my initial development of and persistent improvement in tone quality, musical understanding, range, control, basic ability, consistency, and confidence.

In my life so far, I have known many teachers (of many things), among whom a very, very tiny number change everything forever. Beyond a shadow of a doubt, Jameson is one of them.
