Marcus R. Austin, TX

About Marcus

I have been playing music since I was about 13 years old. I initially started out on guitar but I quickly picked up mandolin, banjo, and ukulele thanks to the great theoretical tools I'd learned from my first teacher! I started studying alto saxophone around the same time I picked up guitar and began extensively studying violin a few years later.

I quickly began writing songs and at 15, I recorded my first album of original material with production help from Grammy award winning producer/guitarist Joe Reyes. Joe and I would go on to make four other records together and I would wind up doing string arrangements for one of his albums as well.

While still in high school, I began playing with a number of bands in my hometown of San Antonio, Texas as well as a few groups in ...

Marcus is great! I have been working with him for over three months. I am 37 and did not consider myself to be a musician at all when I started working with Marcus. I set a personal goal to learn to play something, and I can do that now. Marcus is friendly, communicates well, adapts to my learning style and pace, and has been really patient in helping me learn the basics.

He has been super-flexible with scheduling. I was a little apprehensive about going to a stranger's home, but it's not weird at all. His place is comfortable and inviting.

Excellent instructor-Highly recommended

Marcus has been an excellent instructor. He is friendly, patient, and professional. He does a great job of explaining concepts. If I need to reschedule a lesson he is always willing to work with whatever times are best for me.

He is very knowledgeable about different music styles and bands.

At our first lesson, he asked if I had any music I was specifically interested in learning. I appreciated his focus on making the lessons more personal instead of just following the instruction book.

Great violin teacher

I sadly just found out Marcus will be moving to another state and will no longer be able to teach my daughter violin. We will miss Marcus greatly! He has been an amazing teacher. He is patient, kind, hard working and honest. He sets a great pace and achievable goals. My daughter is 7 and looks forward to her violin lessons with Marcus every week. She started the last day of January this year and can already sight read fairly well, bow and pick her way through simple songs. As a musician myself I know teaching others to play can become frustrating,but with Marcus he actually enjoyed the process of a student evolving. I've never seen a negative emotion from him and my daughter-who normally has attention issues-listens attentively to him and when she gets antsy he works with it beautifully. He is a great teacher and I highly recommend him.
Josh G. Austin, TX

About Josh

Hello everyone, my name is Josh. I have been playing guitar for over 15 years now and have had a successful teaching career for over 4 years. I have a music degree with a focus on blues, jazz and classical guitar. I also play rock, folk, pop, and just about anything you want to learn. I sing and play, improvise, and write my own music. Music is my life and I love being able to share every bit of knowledge I have with my students. It is a blast to watch my students progress and get excited about guitar.

As a player, I learned what to avoid and what to utilize in order to accelerate my playing as quickly as possible and you will save time and limit frustration with my methods. I will teach you how to practice, which is the single most important part of learning. Effective ...

Excellent, safe and trustworthy.

Josh has been the best guitar teach I have had (I have had three others in the past). He is exceedingly patient, flexible and very knowledgeable about the subject, for both theory and practice.

I have a better understanding of the mechanics, style and technique of classical guitar than I had coming in and have learned some really excellent pieces. Josh works at my pace and understands when work and 'life' interfere with my ability to practice during the week.

Wished I found Josh sooner

Josh has all the ingredients of the ideal teacher. He genuinely cares about my progress (or lack thereof). He is very patient. He tailors each lesson to what I want to learn and play. He is able to answer my questions - his knowledge of music runs deep. He spends significant time outside of my lessons to prepare for each lesson itself. And he gives me homework.
I recommend giving Josh a try before you make a decision.

She is wonderful! She helped my teenage son, who had never sung before get a part in the high school musical. She is always prepared, on time, and able to coach the best out of even the shyest of students. She worked tirelessly with my son on improving his voice, knowledge of music and he tryout piece. I would recommend her to anyone who has always wanted to sing but doesn't think he or she can. My son is proof that Gfire can help anyone improve their voice and be confident enough to not only sing in public but get the part.

She is fantastic! She is very knowledgeable and does a great job of explaining things. She's also very supportive and fun. I've only taken a few lessons so far, but I feel like I've already learned so much and I can't wait to learn more. I'm not that great with computer stuff, so I was kind of uneasy about using online lessons at first, but it's been much easier than I thought and Gfire has been very helpful and understanding about that aspect, too. I wish I'd discovered this option for lessons a long time ago, and I absolutely recommend Gfire!

I had no piano experience prior to starting my lessons with Gfire, except for some sight reading from choir. Now, 2 years in, I feel I am going strong, thanks to her weekly lessons and support. She is patient and identifies areas for more focus. I would recommend Gfire looking for a fun and consistent teacher.

Aaron P. Austin, TX

About Aaron

I was an engineering tutor at University of Texas at Austin from 2006-2009. I graduated from UT with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering in 2009. I am very familiar with the UT engineering courses (from the beginning to the end).

While I was at UT, I also studied jazz drumming with Brannen Temple. I have been playing professionally for over ten years with lots of different bands. Teaching and playing music are the most gratifying things for me. But I also like to teach math!

I have been teaching high school math, physics, and music theory at Premier High School of North Austin for five years (2009-2014). I am a certified teacher by the state of Texas.
