Guitar, Piano, Singing, Music Theory
Thank you for visiting my profile! I'm confident you will find me a more than able teacher for your musical needs! To start things off, I'll tell you a bit about myself.
After moving here in 2000, I began taking piano lessons at the age of 10. I was classically trained and progressed quite quickly, tackling many challenging pieces in the years to follow. In my time training on piano, I was taught college level music theory while I was 16 years old, and completed 2 Texas State Theory Tests with a perfect score, making me the highest scoring student in both exams. During high school I found I had a passion for jazz, and so, in years to follow I took my already strong foundation in classical piano, and used it to teach myself about jazz and blues. This has become one of my greatest passions! I now am proud to show off my improvisation skills, as well as some jazz/blues songs I've spent time writing on the piano! If you're looking for a strong background in piano, ranging in genre styles from classical, to pop, to blues and jazz, then you've found the right teacher for you! Additionally, the passion I found for music on the piano, quickly drove me to learn other instruments as well.
Right around the time I began exploring the realms of jazz, I also began teaching myself guitar. I had some help from a local guitar teacher at first, but quickly found that my background on the piano was providing me an excellent foundation for guitar as well! I've explored an extremely wide range of guitar genres including rock and roll, blues, classical, pop, metal, and many more. I spent much of my time on guitar learning theory and exercises that not only propelled my efficiency on the instrument at great velocity, but also enabled me to pass my knowledge onto other like-minded music lovers! After spending a few years learning every facet of guitar I could, I began writing my own music, and have loved every bit of it.I have the knowledge and tools that will help turn you into a capable and talented guitarist. If you want to learn how to rock out on the guitar, I can help make you great! But finally, what would a piano and guitar player be without a little background in voice?
When I was young and learning piano and guitar, I was always a little shy about my singing voice. I had not the control nor the courage to sing in front of people, and it began limiting the types of music I played. This is when I found a local voice teacher to help me out! I spent some years with this man learning the in's and out's of vocal instrumentation, and found that my already strong background in muscle memory, pitch and ear training, and music theory, made it quite easy for me to start singing loud and proud! My teacher noticed this, and commented frequently that he was impressed with how quickly my voice became stable and gained range. After some time he made an offer to me: "You've learned quite well how to sing, but to teach is a different story. Would you care to learn how to pass this gift onto other people?" To this I responded with a resounding Yes! I spent the next year not only practicing my own techniques, but learning different ways you can help unlock another persons voice so that they can learn to sing with a stable, balanced, and clean quality. Eventually he cut me loose and said I was ready to begin teaching other students. If you want a powerful voice, a larger range, and the confidence to sing loud and proud, then you have the right man for the job!
With this, I would like to say thank you very much for reading my profile, and I hope to hear from you very soon! I can discuss materials for lessons with you when I contact you. Have an excellent day!
Guitar, Music Theory, Songwriting
At a certain point, playing music becomes something you live everyday. A few years ago I found myself at this point. It all began with my first guitar lesson at age 9. Since then it has been quite a journey. I started out writing and recording with local bands then on to teaching music as well, but I'm still amazed at how I never run out of new things to learn!
Guitar, Singing, Opera Voice
I have been teaching voice for 5 years and my beginner students are already singing their own gigs. I have had only one advanced student in singing and in 2010 he got the zarzuela prize in the most prestigious opera competition in the world "Placido Domingo´s Operalia). I can teach in Spanish, English and Italian. and for voice I specialize in opera and mariachi music. In guitar I only do beginners.

Composition, Film Scoring, Guitar, Music Theory
I love teaching, and strive to ensure that each student meets his/her personal goals.
My lesson environment is relaxed; I feel that if the student cannot
get a little fun out of it, something is missing. I do, however, expect
my students to practice and to pay attention.
I enjoy teaching beginners, particularly young (8-15 year olds)
children/teens. A beginner has no bad habits which need to be broken.
Adults and experienced players are also welcome. I have particular
expertise in jazz harmony, theory & improvisation. I teach the
Lydian Chromatic Concept, among other improvisational methodologies.

Bass Guitar, Guitar, English, Reading, Songwriting
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.
Ive taught personalized lessons for over 4 1/2 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". Ive played South By South West, Westheimer Block Party, opened up for bands like the Misfits and Rage Against the Machine, shared the stage with bands like Minus the Bear and Echo and the Bunnymen, and been on tour and lived the whole life more often than not!
YOU can be an active musician. If you have the passion and desire. The first step though, is learning your instrument. Learning an instrument is something that stays with you for the rest of your life. It's an unfaltering companion that can benefit you in so many ways. I like to toss out the strict "teacher/student" regiment and create a laid back, fun, easy going atmosphere. I want to be buds and SHARE music with each other and introduce you into this world that I have grown to love so so much. There is nothing more rewarding. I promise. So let's get started!
"Steven is very professional and extremely helpful. He always has a smile on and is serious about helping you phrase the music. I would highly recommend him to anyone."
"It's been really exciting so far! Jordan has been so helpful, so knowledgeable. I could not have found a better instructor and I'm getting better and better every day."
"My daughter's wedding was weeks away and I had never been able to dance a step. With Jenny's help, I came further than ever before in such short time in any subject."
