About Gerson

Hey guys, my name is Gerson born and raised in Irving, TX. I am from the DFW area. I was introduce to drums at a very young age in my early pre-teen life. I've been playing drums for over eight years right now. I grew up playing at my church and seeing myself grow there. As the years gone by I was introduce to a great global drummer in the Christian market name Keith Banks. Were I went to learn more about drums at Christ For The Nations Institute.

We met up with Gerson at Murphy's Music in Irving for our drum lessons. Gerson is as he describes himself, "very laid back and easy going". I would add that he was always professional and knows when to challenge and help his student grow.
He will make you feel at ease and meet you at whatever level you are at.
You can tell he has a great passion for music and why he makes it his chosen profession. We found him to be very reliable and yet flexible should schedules change.
Vandell A. Irving, TX

About Vandell

Hailing from the "Birthplace of Jazz", Vandell Andrew's path to greatness and his purpose in music would not be too hard to find. While studying music at the age of 13 at a local jazz summer camp in the Treme' area of New Orleans, it was there that he learned to play the trumpet. After an entire summer of playing the trumpet at the camp, he was approached by one of his teachers that challenged him by stating his embouchure would work better with the saxophone. Being that this influential teacher was the coolest saxophonist in the world in the eyes of this young, budding jazz musician, Vandell took this challenge as a compliment that his teacher would even consider training him on his new instrument.  Soon after cultivating his craft on the alto saxophone, he joined the world ...

I tried taking lessons using RockSmith 2014 then decided to try a few in home lessons to compare and troubleshoot issues I was having. I found the benefits of lessons with an interactive instructor far outweighed trying to teach myself through other methods. Gordie is professional, makes lessons fun, interesting and when problems arise he changes his method of teaching, becoming a better teacher rather than expecting you to become a better student.

Fantastic Online Lessons!!!

Online lessons are so easy and productive. Long day at work? bad traffic? snowstorm?...none of that effects your online lessons. Moreover, Gordie has an endless library of songs to teach and you just can't stump him! He's patient and practical and does a tremendous job!

Carol D. Dallas, TX

About Carol

On singing and performing: I've been a musician for a very long time and can testify that music heals on a mind, body, and soul level! Though my official performances in front of audiences started with playing woodwind instruments such as clarinet, sax, and flute from elementary school through high school in band, my primary instrument in earnest has been voice for the past 27 years. However, my Mom told me that I have actually been singing--well, humming (a recognizable tune at that!)-- since I was nine months old. I've lead numerous solos in small ensembles and large choirs over the years, and was very involved not only with the adult music ministry at my church, but directed the children's choir as well. I'm a huge fan of arranging and creating harmonies for duets, trios, and small ...

Economics · In studio
I had the privilege of studying under Professor Carol during my time as an undergraduate at Southern Methodist University. Prof. DC is passionate not only about the subject matter she teaches, but also about student success. Her willingness to meet with students outside of lecture speaks to the kind of outstanding teacher she is. Whenever I was confused about a topic we were discussing in class, Prof. DC had the innate ability to explain the material in a way that quickly made sense! While I originally took her introductory economics courses as a requirement for my business major, she inspired me to further explore the field by pursuing a minor. Any student would be lucky to learn under Prof. DC as she really makes a difference!!
Branda T. Irving, TX

About Branda

*** Travel Equipment *** Students that take in-home lessons should have piano at home. *** Specialties *** I play and teach primarily classical music. I do mix in other types of music for variety, such as holiday music in the Fall semester, and movie music and show tunes in the Spring and summer. Most of my students are in the Faber method, but I am also familiar and teach from the Alfred, Hal Leonard, and Bastien methods. All my piano students do theory exercises. Most of them take the state theory tests. I use Just the Facts and Theory Time for theory, and I also use other supplementary materials for additional practice.
