Ray M. Arlington, TX

About Me

Born in Arlington, Texas, I began playing guitar and bass guitar in high school. After studying for several years under Joey Faust, I studied Jazz, Classical Guitar, and Music Theory at TCC in Fort Worth. I've been teaching since 2003, my students ranging in age from 3 to over 70. I also play piano, mandolin, banjo, ukulele, and auto harp.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe lessons should be fun, so all lessons are tailored to the individual student, based on the student's interests and goals. Students are free to progress at their own pace, and to choose their own learning material. Styles and techniques include Rock, Country, Blues, Bluegrass, Jazz, Shred, Slide Guitar, Classical Guitar, and Slap Bass, to name a few.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons in my home studio are definitely more beneficial to the student, because I have all my toys here! Besides having all of my other instruments here for demonstrations, or being able to freely change between electric or acoustic guitar for example, I have access to my computer and all of my teaching materials.
I also find that students who are at home (especially the children) tend to be more distracted, whether it's from lack of privacy due to the area chosen for the lessons, or often (again, this goes especially for the kids) there are pets that they like to play with while I'm trying to talk to them.
When they're guests in my home, however, I find I have their strict attention.

*** Specialties ***
I am primarily a guitar player specializing in electric lead guitar and solo acoustic guitar/vocal performance. I also teach advanced bass guitar, primarily finger-style. In addition I teach slap style bass guitar, as well as slide guitar.

Andreas M. Plano, TX

About Me

I am originally from Germany and started playing the guitar at the age of 10. After two years of classical guitar instruction I enrolled at the School of Rock Guitar in Offenbach (near Frankfurt, Germany) for a one-year program. After that I started performing with many well-known regional musicians and bands until graduating from high school in 1995. After high school I moved
to Boston, Massachusetts to study music at the world renown Berklee College of Music from where I graduated in 2002 with a Bachelor's of Music Degree (Magna Cum Laude). I majored in two areas: Guitar Performance / Contemporary Writing & Production.

While in Boston I performed in many ensembles and played in a Classic Rock Cover band for 2 years. I have also participated in many projects during this time in various styles including recording sessions for film-scoring projects, radio jingles and I also composed 45 minutes of music for a Kung Fu School's Cardio Kickboxing DVD. After relocating to Dallas I discovered that I really enjoy teaching music and guitar and have been doing that for over 10 years now. I am always very happy when I see my students succeed. I have had several students that started performing in bands and participated in competitions throughout the Dallas metroplex area after a few months of lessons.
Some of my students went on to study music at Universities.

I always create a personalized lesson plan for each individual student based on musical background, current abilities on the instrument, musical preferences (styles, bands, artists, songs) and student goals. For students with no prior musical training I prefer to go through a beginner's guitar method book along with my own materials to cover all the basics (parts of the guitar, tuning, reading standard music notation and tablature, rhythm, basic chords). If students are unsure about what songs they want to learn, I also have a huge collection of song transcriptions for different skill levels and in many different styles (Blues, Rock, Country, Jazz, Classical). Even though I can teach all these styles to a certain degree, my specialization is in Rock and Blues. At Berklee I have studied with a lot of great guitar teachers. Among them Jon Finn and Joe Stump. I have studied extensively with Joe Stump in private lessons for 6 semesters and incorporate a lot of the material I have learned there into my own lessons. At the intermediate to advanced level I cover all important solo guitar techniques (Alternate Picking, Legato, Sweeping, Hybrid Picking, Tapping).

If you want to get a very good overall music education based on Berklee's curriculum I can provide it without the cost of several thousands of dollars. Topics that can be covered include Ear Training, Harmony, Arranging, Composition, Music Recording & Engineering, and of course Guitar!
If you are stuck or can't get through certain barriers, I may be able to show you techniques or new ways to break through these barriers. You can finally get the results you always wanted or achieve skill levels you never imagined were possible. It does not need to take 10 years to become proficient at an instrument. Big improvements can be experienced after just a few months with the right training.
And most importantly, I believe music should be fun. I always try to make the experience of learning the guitar as enjoyable as possible.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are all about fast results!

€ If you see fast results you will have more fun.
€ If you have more fun learning the guitar you will practice more.
€ If you practice more you will get better faster.

So, your goals are most important to me and help in designing your lesson plans. If you are unsure I can help in setting goals. To reach your goals it is sometimes necessary to fill in gaps that prevent you from getting there, such as an understanding of music theory concepts (scales, chords, arpeggios, etc.) and improving technical skills on the guitar (legato, alternate picking, sweeping, etc.).

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music room downstairs: computer desk, speakers, amps, music stand, two chairs, stereo and ipod, room for parents to wait in living room

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect students to have their own instrument. If it's an electric guitar they also need to have an amp and a cable. I would also recommend getting a music stand and a tuner (an iPhone- or Android app will work well for this also). I provide all materials such as books, transcriptions, and other lesson documents.
I carry my own guitar(s), amps, and other accessories needed with me to the lessons.

*** Specialties ***
With more advanced students I generally follow the Berklee College Of Music Guitar Department's curriculum. For beginners I like to go through books such as Fast Track Guitar Method or similar Hal Leonard books. I have also accumulated a lot of my own materials and transcriptions over the years that I use all the time.

I can teach almost any style of Music (Blues, Rock, Country, Classical), but I am best in Rock Styles, especially Classic Rock from the 60's, 70's, 80's. I especially like to teach Blues Guitar, Hard Rock and Modern Rock Guitar Styles.

Billy H. Arlington, TX

About Me

I teach my students how to understand how music is put together so they can learn even more on their own.

I read, write, and play all styles and I focus on teaching the student fundamentals that work in all styles of music ....AND I get them going on the style they are interested in - pop, rock, country, folk, etc.

I have spent my entire life in the music industry and I can show you how to use what I teach to apply to the real world. I have also been a successful songwriter and I can work with students to learn about song structure and song writing.

I am also good at preparing students for college music classes.

*** Lesson Details ***
I like to break it down into small steps and accomplish them, then move on to the next.

Each person learns differently and I am good at connecting with how you learn - then we can use a book or CD or not according to your needs.

I have several books to choose from as well as CDs and other tools. BUT .....some things are learned best through 1 on 1 instruction and explanation without a book.

I like to see progress every week and I usually do.

*** Studio Equipment ***
recording studio in home w/ seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
Student needs instrument only to start and discuss from there.
I have many tuners, metronomes, props, books, etc

*** Specialties ***
I teach using modern popular songs as vehicles but back up examples with theory and some reading and ear training.
I usually get quick results and my students can understand the music as well as play it.

Jordan D. Grapevine, TX

About Me

11 years ago, I picked up a guitar and began my life-long pursuit of music. This pursuit has led me in a wide variety of directions. Today, I am the worship leader for Living Life Church, a private guitar instructor at Covenant Christian Academy, a freelance producer, film-composer, and performing musician.Some of my credits and projects are available on my LinkedIn profile and my Reverbnation profile.

I have a passion for a wide variety of styles of music. For several years, I was the lead guitarist, singer, and songwriter for multiple independent bands, the most notable being an indie psychedelic band called Tod The Fox. I have led worship for Grace Fellowship UMC, Brazos Pointe Church, Bear Creek Community Church, The Cornerstone College Ministry at UTA, and the BSM at UTA in varying capacities. At UTA, I studied Jazz and Classical guitar under acclaimed guitarists Sam Walker and Billy Robertson. Here, I also studied theory, piano, sight-singing, and music-production extensively. I graduated Magna Cume Laude with a Bachelor of Music-Media from UTA. I have also played bass guitar for several contract gigs and performances.

My teaching style varies from student to student. Music is a wonderfully diverse subject and every student has his own aspirations. I will do my best to cater each lesson to the student's goals and interests. Whether that is classical guitar method, shredding electric guitar solos, jazz, folk, country, or anything in between.

A few of my favorite artists include: Michael Gungor, Joe Pass, Andrew Bird, Chopin, Led Zeppelin, Glen Hansard, and Radiohead.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons will vary significantly from student to student. Not only does every student have different goals in mind, they all learn differently as well. I do my best to customize my lessons for each student's goals and needs. A typical guitar, bass, or piano lesson may involve music-reading, chord studies, technical work, scale practice, and theory.

I consider myself a healthy balance between professional and light-hearted. As much as I want to make efficient use of the lesson-time, my primary goal is for the student to truly understand and enjoy music.

I have worked hard to be a flexible musician and teacher. I am competent in jazz, rock, classical, contemporary, blues, worship, etc., and will be happy to teach any (or all) of these styles to any student.

For bass, I can also teach a variety of genres. I specialize in blues/rock/contemporary but have experience in classical and jazz bass as well.

***CANCELLATION POLICY***

Michael E. Dallas, TX

About Me

My name is Mike E. I am a resident of Lake Highlands. I played by ear for eleven years before starting training on music and how to teach by Mr. Terrill Gardner. Terrill took me through music from the Rolling Stones all the way through "Modern Method for Guitar" books I, II, and III from Berklee College in Boston. He was my mentor and taught me a method that he spent thirty years perfecting. It works, guaranteed. He also taught me on bass guitar and banjo. I can help you.

Lessons are customized to meet the needs of the individual, with the primary focus on playing songs as soon as possible. I am talking about playing along with the pros, not reading notes for months and playing "Mary Had a Little Lamb." I have combined my "by ear" knowledge with Terrill's training to provide a unique approach to music, chords, music theory, ear training, and more. Even piano lessons start with learning chords. Chords are what the musicians play behind the vocals.

Give me thirty minutes of your time and I will show you why students keep coming back to me, even after stopping for a while.

*** Lesson Details ***
Not accepting "Pay As You Go" from TakeLessons.com,
ONLY MONTHLY students at this time.

Note Reading provided on request only.

Beginner Guitar - We start with simple chords and eight easy one-verse songs. These teach chords, timing, hand technique, ear training, song construction, and the start of music theory.

Intermediate to Advanced Guitar - all of the above plus tablature, different styles, advanced chord theory, performance, lead guitar, and more.

Beginning Piano - We start with simple chords and go straight into the songs the students like. These teach chords, timing, hand technique, ear training, song construction, and the start of music theory. I can teach you every major chord on piano in one sentence.

Bass Guitar - We start with learning the location of notes on the neck and move immediately into major chords so you can start playing with songs. The chords are divided into their single notes, but viewed as chords because that is what the other musicians are playing during the vocals.

Banjo - I teach from the book "I Can Teach Myself Banjo" but you really need a teacher/mentor to show you all the things that seeing and being able to ask questions covers that just can't be covered in a book.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano, amplifiers, cords, computer, free WiFi, all in a spacious room with a window for parents to view the teacher and student. Parents have a large, comfortable waiting area. Restrooms and water fountain provided.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in mentoring, being a friend as well as a teacher. I have never gotten mad at a student and never will.

I have written three books on chord theory, "Chordmaster Chord Theory for Keyboard," "Chordmaster for Beginner Piano Students," and "Chordmaster Chord Theory for Guitar." You can learn more about these online.
