Alex C. Spicewood, TX

Subjects Taught

Guitar, Music Performance, Music Recording, Music Theory, Songwriting

About Me

I am a two-time GRAMMY nominated Music Educator (2014, 2015), Schecter Guitar Research endorsee, and I play/teach 6, 7, 8, and 9 string guitars. I have an Austin Music Award for Best Teen Band of 2007, and was the youngest person to be inducted into the Progressive Rock Hall of Fame at the age of 17. I have performed with notable acts like Three 6 Mafia, Oran "Juice" Jones, Kreator, Anthrax. I have been featured in Relics Magazine, as well as News 8 and Fox 7. I have performed at NAMM while endorsing Dan'l Guitars and I have performed at SXSW since I was 16. I am a Berklee College of Music alumni, and I am a signed Warner Bros. Records recording artist.

*** Lesson Details ***
I have been teaching professionally for 7 years and have given private and group lessons to hundreds of students. I emphasize on building a specific lesson plan to fit the students and their needs. I am a firm believer in that learning should be smooth and relaxed, so I focus on combining a fun and educational environment to allow the student's inner musician to truly come out and breathe. The student and I will work on building a relationship between the feeling of music and how it all fits together. Lessons include learning songs, music theory, instrument technique, music history, and instrument maintenance.
The student could be a musical genius, but without the proper technique to execute the ideas, the student will hit a brick wall. Likewise, the student may have amazing technique, but without the proper music education, the ideas will take longer to materialize. I am here to help the student avoid those brick walls and have fun learning and playing music.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I am endorsed by Schecter Guitar Research, but I own many beautiful models from other companies. They consist of a 1954 Fender Stratocaster (The Relic), Epiphone Les Paul, Ibanez Voltage acoustic, 1943 spanish classical, J. Reynolds Stratocaster copy, Martin Stinger SBX Bass, Yamaha spanish classical, Dan'l Pfazer, Dan'l Muse-XY, Epiphone Mandobird, Schecter Diamond Series Hellraiser FR, Schecter Diamond Series Hellraiser C-7 FR, Schecter Diamond Series Hellraiser C-8, and an Agile Intrepid 925.

I play on Kustom, Peavey, Fender, Roland, and Vox amps and I have a Boss GT-100 multiple effects processor, BOSS GT-8 multiple effects processor, BOSS ME-50 multiple effects pedal, Morpheus Droptune, BBE Boosta Grande, FAB Chorus, BOSS FS-6, and a Jim Dunlop Cry Baby Classic Wah Pedal.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide amplification and cables provided their instrument is electric. Otherwise, I typically expect the student to provide their own instrument. I do accept some exceptions.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in teaching instrument technique, music theory and music history, as well as several different styles. What I have taught in the past includes rock, blues, country, jazz, metal, flamenco, and pop.

Josh G. Austin, TX

Subjects Taught

Blues Guitar, Classical Guitar, Guitar, Music Performance, Music Theory

About Me

**April/May REDUCED RATES! Take advantage while you can!**

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 practice yields great results for everyone. Often teachers will only explain the "how"; I teach the "how" and the "why" so you will have ample knowledge to grow and explore on your own.

*** Lesson Details ***
I will teach you to play the songs/styles that you love. I provide my own transcription of each song and explain and demonstrate each element. Learn how to read music, create rhythms for strumming, build your chord knowledge, improvise, train your ear and understand song structures. We will coordinate a lesson plan that will fit your schedule and accelerate your learning.

I keep my lessons fun and upbeat, but with a focus. I ensure full comprehension of all subjects covered, and make sure that each student is challenged and learning constantly.

My main word of advice is "Be patient." Learning an instrument takes time, practice and is a gradual process that is rewarding beyond words. Acknowledge every little improvement in your playing because that is what we want. I promote a minimum of 2-3 separate 30 minute practice sessions. There's no reason to put it off any longer. Let's get started!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Plenty of parking, music stands, amp, extra picks, tuners, a comfortable setting, great attitude, and seating for parents. Students only need to have their guitar and a notebook.

For Online: Logitech C920, dual cam, good sound quality and lighting, and fast bandwidth

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide music stands, extra picks, a tuner and a great attitude. Students only need to have their guitar and a notebook.

About Me

I tailor all of my lessons to the individual. Growing up, I was blessed to fall in the love with the piano without being pushed to stick with it. My goal with my students is to instill in them the same fondness for the instrument using their unique skills and interests. The more someone likes what he/she is doing, the more successful he/she will be.

I have been studying piano for 17 years with the likes of Colleen Bell, John Weems, Betty Mallard, and Nancy Garrett. I graduated from The University of Texas at Austin with a B.M. in Piano Performance and a concentration in Vocal Performance. I have been teaching for eight years, and it remains to be one of the most fulfilling aspects of my life!

The following are some of the most recent accolades I have been awarded: First Prize at the University of Texas David O. Nilsson Solo Piano Competition; UT€™s Butler School of Music Scholarship; numerous Texas Music Teacher Association competition awards, including honorable mention in the TMTA state competition; winner of the American Festival for the Arts solo competition; gold medals at the University of Houston Forum, Texas State University Young Pianists, and Strake Jesuit Concerto Competition.

*** Lesson Details ***
My number one goal with my students is that they enjoy what they are doing. I take it upon myself to make lessons both enjoyable and efficient. I tailor each lesson to the specific student according to his/her needs and strengths.

For example, some children need more hands-on activities to stay engaged. For those students, I structure lessons to feature several different activities reinforcing a key concept or idea. Other children learn better with step-by-step concept explanations followed by detailed demonstrations. Individual students' goals, learning styles, interests, and attention spans all inform my choice of teaching method.

I am a big believer in the power of both short- and long-term goals. Students work best when they can see the point of practicing. If they know there is a recital coming up or a performance class is looming, they will be much more likely to practice effectively and with purpose.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Acoustic piano, speakers for listening practice. Spacious room adjacent to lesson space with table/chairs for parents to listen and do work during the lesson.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students should plan on bringing their lesson books and assignment notebook in a bag to every lesson.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in an individualized teaching style. I teach all ages, with current students ranging from 4 to 65.

Since music lessons are one-on-one, I am allowed the luxury of getting to know my students well enough to tailor their lessons to their specific goals, strengths, and needs. My method is a fun approach that gets the information across in such a way that will maximize long-term retention.

Richard D. Austin, TX

Subjects Taught

Guitar, Music Recording, Music Theory, Piano, Songwriting, Violin

About Me

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. Since then, I have been involved in bands, orchestras, and choirs throughout school. As a composer and recording artist, I am interested in electronic composition, interactive media, songwriting, film music, and video game music. I have experience writing music for and working with orchestra, choir, chamber ensembles, solo instruments, film, and video games. 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 he/she wants to learn. Being exposed to a variety of different styles of music throughout my life, I can share these experiences through teaching. Whether you are interested in instrumental performance or music composition, you can expect to have a fun time learning things you never knew about music.

*** Lesson Details ***
For the most part, students can expect a fun and laid back teaching environment. I will encourage the student to create reasonable goals. If a student is interested in a particular style or genre, I will ensure that I provide them with the necessary technique and understanding to be able to succeed.

After 3 to 6 months of lessons for instrumental lessons, you can expect to know at least a handful of pieces you are interested in, the basics of your instrument, and some music theory fundamentals. Likewise, for songwriting and audio production, you can expect to have written, composed, and produced a couple of songs and projects.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music studio with keyboard, guitars, violin, music stand, computer, sheet music. Parents are welcome to sit in on lessons.

*** Specialties ***
For teaching violin, I am familiar with the Suzuki method. I also encourage ear training and rote methods for all instruments. Improvisation, theory, and having fun making music are necessary to facilitate student growth.
