Tammye D. The Colony, TX

Subjects Taught

Clarinet, French Horn, Music Theory, Piano, Saxophone, Trumpet

About Me

I am a 2008 graduate of the University of North Texas with a Bachelor of Arts in Music degree. While at North Texas I taught trumpet lessons in the Denton area for five years. I have also taught piano, clarinet, and saxophone as well as all the other brass instruments. I have performed with the UNT Concert Band, the UNT Brass Band, the UNT Nine O'Clock Lab Band, the Collin County Jazz Band, and the San Jose Metropolitan Band.

Currently, I teach clarinet, saxophone, french horn, trumpet and piano in the DFW area. I also play percussion and trumpet in the Frisco Community Band, trumpet with the Frisco Community Brass Ensemble, and I conduct the Frisco Community Herald Trumpets.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid back teacher who gets you playing from the first day.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I do require students to have a 3-ring binder for handouts that I give. You will also need to get any books that we play through (but I'll give you time to get them, so don't worry.) Any books that we use will be easy to find and won't cost a whole lot of money.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will always bring my instrument with me when I attend a lesson, so I expect my students to do the same when they come to my studio. Also, make sure you have any books and music that we will be playing out of. I always have a copy of anything that we are playing, so I expect the student to have a copy as well.

About Me

Music has been a very important part of my life for a long time. I began taking piano lessons at age 9 and also started as a church musician that same year. Some people would say I was a very fast learner! I was, and still am, very interested in every aspect of music. I began singing in church and school a few years after that. I have played and performed a variety of styles of music but I have the most experience with Christian music, classical, pop and R & B. I am confident that I can teach you whatever style you are interested in! I am currently a high school choral director and a minister of music for church. I also play in a band with a group of my co-workers where we perform mostly pop, rock and oldies. I have been doing private lessons since I was in high school and have taught school music for 25 years. I've taught general education, choir, band and general music. I also do some composing.

I attended Jarvis Christian College (1984-1989) where I majored in All-Level Music Education. I received a Bachelor of Science in Education degree in May of 1989.

After I was hired at my first school, I started working on additional certification at Texas Christian University and Texas Wesleyan University. I completed the required subjects and received certification in general education in 1991. I am currently certified in 3 areas: General Music 1-8, All-Level Music K-12 and General Education 1-8.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe that all students can and will learn something if they put forth some effort! I also believe that learning music should be fun! I'm a pretty laid back person but I am very serious about my time and yours being well spent! I use a method book for piano lessons, as well as, a variety of other materials based on your interest and level. I also use a variety of materials for voice lessons. At the first lesson I will find out what your goals for learning music are. I will also find out what types of music you are interested in and we'll go from there! I do believe in challenging students. I do expect you to sincerely want to learn and to demonstrate your interest through weekly practice and attendance at your lessons.

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.

About Me

Hello, a little about myself, I have a bachelors degree in Music Education from Florida A&M University and Specialist Certificate in Jazz Composition and Arranging from Berklee College of Music. I have been teaching for the last 17 yrs as either a elementary or middle school band director. I have lead many of my students to All City Honors, superior ratings at Solo and Ensemble and alike.

Rosanna H. Dallas, TX

Subjects Taught

Clarinet, Classical Piano, Music Performance, Piano, Saxophone

About Me

Rosanna H. has been teaching music since her high school years. She graduated from Bob Jones University in 2007 with a Bachelor of Music degree in Orchestral Instrument Performance. She studied woodwinds primarily with Alex P. Fields, former student of renowned woodwind pedagogue Himie Voxman. She has been playing piano since the age of 6 and clarinet since the age of 10. While in university, she learned to play all the woodwinds and took additional pedagogy and education classes, as well as gaining additional piano experience.

Rosanna is currently part of her church's praise team along with her husband, also a music teacher. She takes students of all levels on Clarinet, up to Intermediate on Saxophone, and up to Intermediate on Piano. She enjoys teaching students of all ages. Her performance style is marked by technical ability, dynamic control, musical expression, and versatility.

Rosanna teaches primarily from a classical background as the foundation, but can teach many styles ranging from Christian/Sacred to Pop/Rock and Jazz depending on students' preferences and needs. Individualized lesson plans and instructional materials are developed and recommended based on each student's unique learning style. She seeks to develop each student's musical strengths and improve weaknesses through communication that makes sense and promotes retention and memory. Music instruction is proven to sharpen the mind for all ages, particularly children and teens, and is therapeutic for people struggling with memory loss and cognitive issues. Rosanna also works in health care and has a deep understanding of the role of art and music in healing. This inevitably makes its way into her instructional style.

Note on availability: although all non-working hours are marked as available, I prefer late afternoon/evening lessons. Midday lessons are currently difficult due to my full-time work schedule on overnight shifts. I will work with you to the best of my ability! Lesson times can be changed (by mutual agreement) even if purchased on a specific schedule.
