About Me

I love learning, and I love sharing and developing the tools for learning. I began as a self-taught pianist at age 12, and from ages 14 to the present I have had the experience of studying with some of the most phenomenal teachers of this generation. George Katz, former chair of the Drake University Piano Department and student of the legendary artists Alfred Cortot and Marguerite Long; Jerome Lowenthal, also a student of Cortot (and William Kapell) and former chair of the Julliard piano department, and Jose Feghali, winner of the 1985 Cliburn Gold Medal have been my most influential teachers. From them, I learned how to learn, how to teach, and how to teach learning, which I believe is the most important skill.

As a winner of the 2000 Interlochen Concerto Competition, I had my orchestral debut that year with the World Youth Symphony Orchestra at 16. Following that, I have given concerts all over the U.S., some parts of Mexico, Malmo and Stockholm, Sweden, and in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Having become keenly interested in technology and recording engineering, I have produced many CD's for renowned artists, such as Joseph Banowetz, Jose Feghali, Mike Morey, Paul Tuntland Sanchez and Vladimir Ashkenazy. I also worked for two years as the recording engineer for the Fort Worth symphony, where I was exposed to dozens of symphonic scores and new works, and was able to study them while I was preparing the recordings for radio broadcast.

My interests expanded even further when I became interested in the study of memory. I felt that I was still a slower learner, and wanted to counteract this. Having taken up research into the functions of memory and retention, I became a student who, instead of spending 6 months perfecting a Haydn or Beethoven sonata, could learn a monster like the Ravel Trio and perform it in just over a week. It's these methods that I offer to my students, in full confidence that any one of them who applies themselves can, in time, equal and surpass my own efforts.

Anyone with an Xbox will quickly learn that I'm an avid gamer, and I am exploring using games in the fields of epistemology; i.e. using the naturally evolved need for socio-mental stimulation and the non-linear hypotheticals presented in games to affect the individual's study of rational and critical thinking.

*** Lesson Details ***
Music is a tool for the discovery of critical thinking as well as art, i.e. an excellent way to ready your mind for nearly all problem solving and learning. Even if you have been a prior music student, I will be able to help you advance your practice technique far beyond its current potential; my methods are original, new, and can be empirically shown to work in no uncertain terms.

I am now a Steinway partner; my students will have twice-yearly opportunities to perform at Steinway Hall, Plano, should they feel ready. These recitals will usually be held during winter or spring breaks.

For younger students, I prefer parental involvement in the lessons. The parent of a student will have more influence on their progress on a weekly basis than I can. They will be asked not only to help the student practice, but to help them practice correctly. The results of this approach can be profound. For these reasons, I ask that the parents follow the student's progress so that they can provide support for the 6 days of the week that I do not get to see the student.

I tailor my curriculum to the student, and their learning habits and interests. I draw from a wide variety of curriculum, as well as sometimes writing original pieces that focus on weak areas that must be quickly developed.

Lastly, the student's input will ALWAYS be heard and carefully considered when choosing pieces for study. The most important part of studying music is the joy of music itself. I do my very best to make sure that lessons and practice are both fun and engaging, as well as productive.

Important Note: Right now I am only teaching classical music for voice. That doesn't mean that I am not willing to supplement lessons with other styles, but classical vocal training and technique is universally applicable and should be the pop or rock vocalist's foundation regardless. Please only sign up for voice with me if you are prepared to study primarily classical repertoire. Broadway songs are also acceptable.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Steinway Concert Grand

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in training memory, technique, artistic sensitivity and the development of a musical mind. I am familiar with many methods and use them where appropriate. I will observe you (the student) and find out how you learn best, and tailor lessons accordingly, thereby using your preferred method of learning (aural, visual, or kinesthetic) to strengthen any weaknesses. Lessons with me are very fun and challenging.

Subjects Taught

Music Performance, Music Theory, Piano, Songwriting

About Me

I absolutely LOVE teaching piano. I use a 'Lab' concept ("Lakewood Piano Lab") and every single lesson is exciting, fun, and effective, both for me and for each student.

I started teaching piano with one student in 1998, and went full time in 2002.

We learn pieces by ear, we learn to read music well (all styles of music), we learn interpretation and musicianship, we learn how to play the piano easily without injury, we improvise, we jam.

Annual spring recitals are optional, and are open to all students.

My studio presents a friendly space for lessons. There is an adjoining, comfortable waiting room for parents, siblings, nannies.

I studied music and piano with Nadine Johnson, Jac Murphy, Dr. William Armstong, Dr. Bruce Lunkley, Dan Hearle, Rich Matteson, North Texas State University (now UNT), Royal Academy of Music, and Tamir Hendleman.

Performing experience includes: accompanying singers like Paul Salos, Breggett Rideaux, and Diana Savage, playing piano for private parties and events, playing in the M Street Quartet at restaurants, "Big D" country music revue and dance, a couple of years with the Balcony Club band "Cheap, Fast, and Easy" and professional church pianist.

"I am committed to learning with students. I am constantly curious what is best for each student. I am so grateful for students who continue studying with me year after year."

Patricia O. Denton, TX

Subjects Taught

Broadway Singing, French, Music Performance, Opera Voice, Singing

About Me

I am a Doctoral student at the University of North Texas with 3 years of experience teaching college level students as a Teaching Fellow in Voice at UNT. I currently work with HEB ISD and BISD teaching private lessons to Junior High age students. I enjoy working with a variety of age groups, styles and skill levels. I have extensive experience as a recitalist, church soloist and as an opera singer and I specialize in classical voice. I am a member of the National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS), the Texas Music Educators Association (TMEA) and the College Music Society (CMS).

*** Lesson Details ***
I teach all styles and types of music and I always want my students to really connect with and enjoy the songs they sing. I like all my students to have a good foundation in the 'basics' of good voice production. No matter what kind of music, the fundamentals of posture and good breath support are the first things I address with any new student. I use vocal exercises tailored to the individual student's needs and goals. After the first 3 months or so a committed student will improve their breath control and coordination and improve the strength and stamina of their voice. I find that personal confidence in all areas of life is improved by the process of understanding and developing the voice.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room w/ electronic keyboard, laptop, and seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide my own copies of music. Student should provide their own copy of any music or books necessary. Student should provide a piano or keyboard for lessons involving music (not necessary for speech).

*** Specialties ***
*Teachers marked as a Student Favorite have taught a minimum of 25 lessons and have received the highest feedback rating from students.I enjoy teaching all styles, from pop and rock, jazz and blues to Broadway and classical voice. As a performer I specialize in classical/operatic singing including choral styles.

About Me

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.

*** Lesson Details ***
Like me, students can expect to enjoy the process. Students will discover that I am very encouraging during lessons. I keep everything upbeat and positive. I will help you come up with goals musically. I am very patient, all while coaching you so that you get positive results.
