Mariel C. Pflugerville, TX

About Mariel

I was born in Mexico City and have been playing violin for 17 years. I received my degree in Music Education from Brigham Young University, and have been teaching people of all ages and levels for 7 years.

My main goal for my students is to help them build the very solid basics of their instrument. With my training and experience with string instruments, I can help them develop a good sound that will give them the confidence to continue their studies and perform for others. Although my training has been mostly in classical music, I have had experience teaching all kinds of genres such as country, bluegrass, and pop.

I am a Suzuki certified teacher and use the books for my lessons. If you can't read music, I'll teach you all that you need to know ...

What a joy Mariel is. So patient and understanding, puts up with my bad jokes, terrible playing and allows me to go where I want to go with the material.
I can not speak highly enough about her, but I will say I don't think any one could be better than she is.
Thanks for putting up with me Mariel
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, takes time to explain music so I can have a better understanding of the whole process.

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.

About Richard

My name is Richard, and I am a musician/violinist/composer with a Master of Music in Composition/Theory from Penn State. I began violin lessons at age 5.

Along with my sister, Cecilia, we released our debut electronic/pop album, "Henri," under the name, Umu. I have experience teaching violin, piano, music theory, songwriting, and audio production lessons.

I'm always open to the interests of the student and what ...

So far, I couldn't be happier with my lessons. I am 23 and have always wanted to learn to play violin. Richard's patience and knowledge is helping me progress the way I hoped I would. I highly recommend him and look forward to our next lesson!

Richard is very cool. He is very nice and easy to work with. His knowledge of the piano and of music theory are exceptional and his ability to explain them to a beginner is incredible. I have learned so much in only 3 or 4 sessions and have already scheduled 4 more. I am so glad I found Richard on TakeLessons!! I would absolutely recommend him to an adult or to a child. He's the best!!!

The force is strong with this one.

Richard is an excellent teacher. I have seen steady improvement in my child's playing. Now Samantha wants to play and practice more. Richard is able to notice errors in form and technique that lead to poor habits without discouraging her. Richard is able to explain to my child how to fix her mistake and encourages her in a positive way. This makes all the difference in the world.
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.

My 9-year-old daughter is absolutely loving her lessons with Aaron. His enthusiasm for the instrument is contagious and his patient encouragement is just what she needs to stay motivated. Having been through two other disappointing drum teachers before this, we are thrilled to have found Aaron!
