About Aleena

I've been teaching private lessons since 2010 and have loved helping my students learn to sight read, perform and acquire new skills and self confidence. I studied privately and then earned a Masters in Fine Art in 2004. I'm an encouraging, flexible and light-hearted individual and my teaching style includes enjoyment, skill and appreciation. I look forward to helping you reach your goals! I encourage anyone to learn and play any genre they desire. I was trained in classical music which I find is a wonderful springboard to any type of music. I incorporate basics that all students will benefit from and then direct them towards their goal and them help them enjoy! enjoy! enjoy!!!!!!

Aleena is an amazing piano instructor.. She has truly been a blessing to me abd my daughter's life and teaching her how to play all types of music including classical music and her favorite song, "Fur Elise!" Aleena goes over and beyond to make sure her students are the "best of the best" and will not let them settle for anything less than that! I would recommend her to anyone who has a desire or passion for playing the piano and who loves the general aspect of music.. Aleena is patient, understanding, caring to all of her students and is always willing to help them reach their ultimate goals! Thanks so much for being an inspiration to me and my daughter and for helping her to create her musical path and finding a creative niche that she enjoys and wishes to pursue!

Jerred B. Houston, TX

About Jerred

I'm a young, enthusiastic, energetic, and patient pianist with a B.A. in Jazz Piano Performance from Lewis and Clark College. So, born in Dallas, I've spent parts of my childhood in various parts of the country, from Washington D.C. to Carbondale, Colorado to Portland, Oregon, and now in hot and humid Houston, Texas. America has a plenty to offer and our great country's musical history is rich and eclectic. I first started playing piano at a very young age from a very old lady. It was something I resented my parents for, not really understanding the whole point of playing music. But now, in retrospect, I thank them indefinitely for exposing me to one of the most important passions of my life. It was in 6th grade that I joined a rock n' roll band, singing and playing all sorts of ...

Jerred is an easy going, flexible and professional teacher who teaches my 7 years old son. My son sees him as his role model and has taken to Jerred's style of teaching very well. Very impressed with what he has achieved so far. Currently we go to his apartment which is in a great location.

About Shakeatha

I have sung for as long as I could speak! I hail from a family of recording artists and have graced the stage since the age of 4. During high school, I learned to read music and took piano lessons. This peaked my interest in wanting to learn the fundamentals of music so I decided to major in it in college. I then went on to Xavier University, where I received a Bachelor of Arts in Music. While at Xavier I participated in many productions. I also received a Xavier University Music Scholarship for four years. I have noted my experience in detail: Xavier University of Louisiana-Senior Recital; Xavier University Student Recital – “Opera under the Stars”, April 2008; Xavier University Concert Choir Midwest Tour – Soloist for “Amazing Grace”, April 2008; Xavier University of Louisiana ...

Shakeatha is great! After just a few lessons, I felt like I was improving. I like that she stresses proper vocal technique and breathing as well, which are very important. She's also highly versatile, so no matter what style you want to learn, whether its pop, jazz, soul, or classical, she's got you covered. She really encouraged and challenged me, reawakening my love for singing and music overall. I highly recommend her!

I am 3 lessons in, and I am very satisfied with the pace we are taking the lessons and the advice I am receiving for my music career. I like to cover a lot of material in lessons and in homework and we are keeping busy as I like. If you're serious about music, you will probably like Troy as your instructor.

We first started lessons with Troy almost three years ago, and we continue to be impressed with the progress made over just a few years of practicing! Our oldest son, who is now eight, has worked very hard to prepare his weekly lessons. He works on short pieces, sight-reading, and now ear training.
Troy’s impressive training has given him a very well-rounded appreciation of music that is rare in a teacher –most focus on one thing, with the result leaning heavily towards technique or theory. He is able to incorporate multiple aspects of a piece so that they are all equally weighted, and neither the minor points nor the big picture are neglected.
Perhaps more impressive than Troy’s educational background is his ability to make learning piano fun! He is an outstanding teacher!

I have been taking piano lessons with Troy for about a year and a half. He is very knowledgeable and has been an excellent instructor. I took piano lessons many years ago so I was not a complete beginner, but Troy has helped me learn more of the music theory, and a number of other things that were either missed or forgotten in my early training. It has been great getting back into piano and I think Troy has been very flexible in letting me explain what I want to get out of the lessons. I have enjoyed the time with him and would recommend his teaching to others!

About Andrew

Music is my life. As cheesy as that phrase goes, for me, it holds true. I'm Andrew. Everything I do and have been doing has been geared towards music. I've been in one working/gigging band or other without break for the past 8 years. I began intensely learning to play guitar at the age of 9 and have not stopped. The second I started learning I knew that that was what I wanted to do. Fast forward to now, and here I am loving every minute of it. I took lessons of my own as a kid, which helped shape me greatly. I then picked up bass at the age of 13. I've taught personalized lessons for over 5 years now without a single complaint. At this point in my musical career, the majority of my experience and attitude has come from being "in the field". I've played South By South West, ...

Amazing teacher

Andrew is really an amazing guitarist and teacher. As a female, at first I was nervous to show up at a "random" male teacher's door, but he made me feel really comfortable right away. I feel I'm really progressing with him, more than I could ever have done on my own.
Thanks Andrew!

About Eric

I am 25 years old, and I have over 6 years of experience teaching and tutoring. Aside from tutoring in the United States, I have also taught English in Spain and worked for the US National Park Service to run a summer education program for students in Kenai Fjords National Park. I teach guitar, math, chemistry, physics, earth science, environmental science, biology, Spanish and English. My schedule is very flexible and I love teaching. I believe that learning should be fun, and I emphasize the importance of understanding the underlying logic of a subject rather than simple rote memorization. I especially enjoy teaching guitar and anything related to writing. I am a published journalist and science writer; I have written for National Geographic, In These Times magazine, The ...

Music Lessons in Houston, TX

In Texas, Austin usually gets the recognition for musical talent. However, many successful bands and artists hail from Houston, including Beyonce, Blue October, Kenny Rogers, and Lyle Lovett. Houston is also host to a number of more extreme, experimental musical artists, from rappers to rockers.

All musicians have one thing in common: they all had to learn to play their instruments. Nobody just picks up a guitar or a bass or a set of drum sticks and immediately knows what to do. Here at TakeLessons we offer quality lessons for a wide array of instruments, including (but not limited to) guitar, bass, drums, piano and violin. If you want to play it, we’ll help you find a local teacher to help you learn!

Our Houston music lessons are not just limited to Houston, either. We have many ...
