Subjects Taught

Bass Guitar, Classical Guitar, English, Flamenco Guitar, Guitar, Music Performance, Music Recording, Music Theory, Piano, Reading, Saxophone, Songwriting

About Me

I have been playing guitar since August 1992. I cut my teeth on the alternative music that was popular at the time (Pearl Jam, Smashing Pumpkins, Soundgarden, Nirvana) but soon began to focus on earlier movements, specifically the playing styles and mindsets of Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, and Eric Clapton. I formed a band in 1996 and began gigging in Austin and throughout Texas. During this time, I immersed myself in jazz and did everything I could to bring the sonic palettes of Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, and Miles Davis into my playing, even taking up saxophone and piano in order to better understand what they were doing.

I eventually moved back to my home town of Lubbock, where I graduated from Texas Tech University with a BA in English with a minor in Music, having played guitar and saxophone in the Jazz Band in addition to taking several classes in theory. During this time, I was giving private lessons in Lubbock and setting up arts education programs at the Lubbock Boys & Girls Club and Buddy Holly Center. Since then, I have started a family and begun writing fiction, both of which have given me a much wider spectrum through which to channel my songwriting.

*** Lesson Details ***
These are your lessons. I see my role as being nothing more than helping you get to the place that you want to be, in whatever fashion and at whatever pace that you set. While it would be disingenuous to say that I don't take pride in watching my students succeed, I believe that the instructor should only be as concerned with measurable results as the student. If the student wants to learn three scales and two songs every week, then it's the instructor's responsibility to have those ready to go, along with a few suggestions for additional work. If the student wants to learn a few chords and then spend ten minutes talking about Led Zeppelin, it's their dollar and their time to spend however they wish.

All of which to say, my teaching style varies dramatically from student to student. It can be laid-back, strict, calm, or rapid-fire, depending on the learning environment that the student prefers. My experience is that this approach leads to the greatest level of student satisfaction, which I consider to be of the utmost importance.

*** Studio Equipment ***

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have an acoustic guitar and I could provide one for the student, though they're not going to get very far without one to spend hours practicing on outside of the lesson.

*** Specialties ***
I'm best at teaching students music what they want to learn. I specialize in rock, blues, songwriting, and music theory in general.

Todd S. Austin, TX

Subjects Taught

Acting, Broadway Singing, Film Acting, Guitar, Improv Acting, Meisner Technique, Method Acting, Music Performance, Music Theory, Opera Voice, Piano, Shakespearean Acting, Singing, Songwriting, Speaking Voice, Theater Acting, Ukulele

About Me

I am a singer/songwriter, theatre artist, and teacher that has been singing, playing, and writing music since the age of five. ‚ÄčOriginally from Cooper City, Florida, I received my BFA from Boston University, where I studied Music and Theatre Arts. I have had the privilege of studying voice privately with industry-leading professors for over 12 years and have been teaching both children and adults- singing, acting, piano, guitar, and songwriting- for the past seven years.

After learning how to create my own music at around the age of eight, ‚ÄčI have recorded over a dozen albums with many bands and musicians and currently am playing shows as a singer/songwriter in the Austin area.

I have experience with the following musical styles: Musical Theater, Folk, Rock, Pop, Classical, Opera, Foreign Language, Punk Rock, Metal, Reggae, and Jazz. My lessons are designed for the student to have fun, grow, explore, and learn in a safe and pleasant environment. I believe that everyone has a unique music within them and my goal is to help each student find, hone, and craft it.

*** Lesson Details ***
I truly believe that each one of us has a uniquely beautiful voice. Through our lessons, we will explore music in search of our unique voice and have tons of fun along the way. Whether it be through voice, piano, guitar, songwriting, or acting, the student will become more in tune with their artist-self, learn about the language of music, and develop the creative skills that all successful artists possess.

Most importantly of all, the lessons are formed around your interests and musical desires. As a teacher, I pride myself on keeping the student engaged and positive, while maintaining a non-judgmental atmosphere.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Studio Music room with upright piano, 88-key weighted keyboard, guitars, ukulele, music library, and recording equipment.

*** Specialties ***
I am trained in many different styles of Vocal Technique including Bel Canto singing, Linklater training, Musical Theatre, and Rock and Roll singing. I have been playing piano and guitar for over fifteen years and have both creative and classical training in each.

James C. Austin, TX

Subjects Taught

Bass Guitar, Drum, Guitar, Music Theory, Piano

About Me

I have been performing, recording, and teaching music for the past five years. After getting a degree in music theory, I began playing with a band full time. In addition to playing all around Austin, I have traveled to places like Seattle, Nashville, and Waikiki to play shows, record, and interview with with my band on live radio. Songs from our album were played on Austin's own KGSR. We also played on Fox 7's morning show, Good Day Austin. I enjoy playing and teaching a variety of instruments and a variety of genres. To me, understanding music is key to unlocking your full potential for artistic expression. When I teach, I incorporate both what I learned in school and on stage.

*** Lesson Details ***
My goal is not to teach my students how to play a few cool songs on their instrument. Rather, my aim is to develop the knowledge and skills in them that will take them to the next level in their playing. Whether they are beginners or have been playing for years, whether young or old, there is always more to be discovered and experienced! I want to see my students become musicians, who never stop learning and growing. In my lessons, I try include a balanced blend of Music Theory (understanding how it works), Ear Training (learning to play by ear), Practice Exercises (developing speed and coordination), Sight Reading, Improvisation (learning how to jam!), & Song Writing.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The In-Studio lessons are taught in the finished garage with sound foam, piano, record display, drum set, guitars, and seating. No pets.

*** Travel Equipment ***
They need to have their own drum kit, metronome, sticks. I will provide curriculum and other various resources.

*** Specialties ***
Blues, rock, country, contemporary worship, sight-reading and performance.

Jacqueline P. Austin, TX

Subjects Taught

Audition Prep, Broadway Singing, Classical Piano, Classical Voice, Ear Training, Music Performance, Music Theory, Opera Voice, Piano, Singing

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‚¬Ä¬ôs 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.

Gfire Austin, TX

Subjects Taught

Broadway Singing, Music Performance, Music Recording, Music Theory, Opera Voice, Piano, SAT, Singing, Songwriting, Speaking Voice

About Me

gfire has been teaching music full-time for over 16 years. Based in Austin, Texas, the "Live Music Capital of the World," she offers voice, piano, songwriting and DJ'ing lessons to students from 5-105 and she specializes in sculpting her lessons to the strengths and desires of each individual student. Her students range from beginning to advanced levels, and they sing and play a multitude of musical styles, including classical, pop, rock, r 'n' b, country, folk, singer-songwriter, musical theater, blues and more.

gfire loves to share her talents with her students. She prides herself on instilling a "sense of mastery" to each of her singing and piano students, no matter on which level they are. The students come away with a real sense of knowing their songs and their instruments inside out and with a real sense of confidence in their musicianship. Plus they have a lot of fun as they make musical progress!

gfire is also an award-winning singer-songwriter and "Yoga for the Voice" innovator. She has released 4 CDs of all-original music and is currently working on her 5th CD, to be released in 2010.

As a teacher, gfire works with students of all levels and all areas of interest. In October 2007, gfire became the only vocal teacher in the Western Hemisphere to gain full certification in the Science of Singing, developed by Ernest G. White of London, England. Her unique voice training program, entitled "Yoga for the Voice," combines this knowledge of the Science of Singing with ancient yoga breathing techniques. This technique allows each voice student to develop a "vocal tune-up" for the voice AND to discover what the natural singing range is and how to use the voice as effectively as possible. With the internet SKYPE technology, gfire teaches voice students all over the world, from Switzerland to the U.K. to New Zealand to New York.

Her vocal students have sung in touring rock bands, on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry, in successful auditions, in karaoke clubs, in coffee houses and folk clubs, at weddings and for their own enjoyment amongst family and friends. Whatever level of singing training you wish to acquire, she will show you the way to achieve it!

gfire was also the main voice instructor and one of 3 main piano teachers at the Austin branch of Mars Music (now defunct) for 3 1/2 years. In addition to her vocal study and innovation, she has studied piano with top classical and jazz pianists, studied songwriting with Pat Pattison of Berklee College in Boston, gotten her full yoga teaching certification in 2004 and DJ'd at clubs and parties worldwide. For four years straight - 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 - she has won the prestigious ASCAPlus Award for professional songwriting.

As a singer-songwriter, gfire continues to write, record and perform with some of the best musicians and engineers in the world, including engineer Stuart Sullivan (Willie Nelson, Sublime, Meat Puppets, etc.), Hammond organ player Ian McLagen (Rolling Stones, Rod Stewart), cellist John Hagen (Lyle Lovett), fiddle/mandolin player Warren Hood (The Waybacks), bassist George Reiff (Ray Wylie Hubbard) and banjo picker Danny Barnes (Bad Livers, Dave Matthews).

gfire's original songs have been played on over 160 radio and television stations worldwide. She has toured in over half of the fifty states, plus the U.K. and Canada.

*** Lesson Details ***
NEW - gfire is now available to teach WORLDWIDE via SKYPE - so you can have a music lesson in the privacy of your own home!!

Voice lessons - I have created a unique and wonderful vocal method, "Yoga for the Voice," which combines ancient yoga breathing exercises with special vocal exercises to give you a "complete vocal tune-up." These techniques are simple, effective and easily-learned by any student of the voice, from about age 7-107. I love to help you learn to apply these wonderful techniques to learning the songs you wish to learn - whether they are pop, r 'n' b, folk, singer-songwriter, rock, country, opera, musical theater, jazz, etc. "Yoga for the Voice" is just as effective for professional speakers, such as teachers, lawyers, clergymen or actors - we just use a range of notes that is smaller than a singer's range, and we focus on using your speaking voice as effectively and efficiently as possible.

In 3-6 months, you will be able to:

1. master the "breath of fire" and "one-minute breath" - the BEST yoga breaths for singers!
2. master the "sinus humming exercises" - identifying where EACH note in your range originates in your own head
3. master the "full-body exercises" - traditional singing exercises on "mah, mee, moh, moo, meh" - so that you can move easily between your chest voice, middle voice, and head voice
4. master 2-10 songs or more, depending on your level and the level of difficulty of each song - being able to sing each song in TUNE, with feeling, and having a blast doing it!!
5. if you wish, you can perform your song(s) at one of my voice and piano recitals - on a REAL Austin stage!!

Piano lessons - I teach a wide range of piano styles at levels from beginner to early advanced, beginning around age 5. Whether you want to learn classical, rock, blues, country, boogie-woogie, or other styles of piano and keyboard playing, I will sculpt your lesson plan so that you have a great foundation in technique AND you learn the styles and songs you wish to play.

In 3-6 months, you will be able to:

1. master the Leschetizky, hand massage, and isometric warm-up exercises - the BEST piano warm-ups!
2. depending on your level, master Hanon exercises 1-12, major and minor scales, major and minor arpeggios
3. for beginners, you will be able to play with BOTH hands on the treble and bass clefs - at the same time!!
4. master the I-IV-V progression in 3-12 keys, depending on your level - so that you can play blues, rock, country, boogie-woogie, and ragtime songs!!
5. master 4-20 songs or more, depending on your level and the level of difficulty of each song (classical songs tend to take more time to master) - being able to play each song with great technique, with feeling, and having a blast doing it!!
6. if you wish, you can perform your song(s) at one of my voice and piano recitals - on a REAL Austin stage!!

Songwriting lessons - I will teach you how to create a great song, in the style you wish to write in. Country songs, pop songs, rock tunes, r'n' b, folk, etc. - all of these genres have "unwritten rules" about how to put together an effective song. We will utilize special songwriting exercises and tools to help you learn to be a wonderful songwriter.

DJ lessons - I teach beat matching, turntable fine-tuning and repertoire selection to help you become the DJ you aspire to be. I own crates and crates of vinyl records and CDs, and I have DJ'd all over the world to enthusiastic crowds, so I can teach you to attain a real joy and skill in the art of turntablism.

Yoga lessons - I a fully KRI-certified yoga teacher and I can help you develop a valuable yoga routine to help you achieve your health and relaxation goals. We will choose from literally hundreds of exercises and breathing techniques specifically geared to your needs and wants.
