About Me

I love people of all ages. And I love helping them discover what beautiful things they can create in the world of music! Music is such a powerful way to express ourselves, and I love helping others learn how to do this and really enjoy it.

I have played piano since I was three. When I was able to read at age four, I began lessons, and the rest is history. I graduated from Wheaton College Conservatory of Music with a degree in Piano Performance and completed a Master's degree in Piano Performance at the University of Redlands. I love to perform, have written several songs, produced three CD's all with original music that I perform, and have just completed a fourth CD featuring major classical piano works arranged with favorite hymns. I have also written a musical and am in the process of having it produced.

I have sung in choirs of all types and accompanied them on the piano as well for many years. I have worked extensively in Musical Theater, serving both as Musical Director and Accompanist for shows such as Sound of Music, Annie, and many others.

I love seeing people get touched with music and love to help others create and perform music that really speaks to the heart. It's my passion. I teach all styles of music, and love teaching children, adults, and everything in between!

My goal for the students is for them to feel good about themselves as musicians and to be able to express themselves and reach the highest level of performance possible for them.
The students have the opportunity to perform regularly in recitals as well as other venues, and we have a lot of fun! Lessons are a great experience for us all.

*** Lesson Details ***
I use a standard curriculum for students that teaches the basic concepts of music and gives them creative pieces to use in the process. I expect my students to practice, and reward and encourage them to do so. I believe that positive affirmation is the best teaching tool, so I use that as my main basis for teaching, along with discipline and being challenged appropriately. I love helping people create, so my main goal for a piece is to help the student learn to perform it in the best way possible, with plenty of technique and lots of expression, to really make it their own so they and the audience can really enjoy it.

My students are usually ready to perform at least two or three major pieces of their level at the end of six months. I give them material to challenge them and encourage them to progress. Not too much, not too little! I teach self-confidence as one the biggest tools they can use to help themselves improve.

Come join us in our studio! We have a great time together discovering what we can create in the world of music.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I teach in my own private studio with an upright Weber piano excellent for teaching beginning to advanced piano skills and spacious room for voice lessons.

Susan T. Grand Prairie, TX

Subjects Taught

Acoustic Guitar, Classical Guitar, Music Theory, Piano, Singing, Songwriting, Ukulele

About Me

I would first like to say that I was born into a musical family. My Dad (choir director) and five older brothers were not only the majority of the choir in our large Catholic church, but Dad had a "tame" Frank Sinatra singing style. My mother played harmonica and piano by ear so acquiring musical intellects spread quickly to all of us. Most of my siblings sang and played instruments as we had a piano, guitar, organ, harmonica, trumpet, clarinet and a recorder to use as we pleased, with or without a music teacher.

I started singing and playing the piano at age four. With consistent encouragement from my oldest sister (a professional organist for 40+ years), I learned piano and music theory while I was learning to read English, started guitar at eight. A natural born singer, I learned the basics of voice while in choir from middle school through high school while accompanying myself on piano or guitar when singing privately or for others. I wrote my first song at 17 and worked my way through college playing original music in coffee shops while earning my bachelors degree. After college, I started touring across the US (this was long before American Idol and the Internet when if you wanted to make it, you had to "pay your dues" on the road first). Working in the studio was always the most fun and challenging, my first original song got air play in 1990 (this was before CDs).

I received international distribution of my original music starting 2004; however, around that time I learned that performing was not my preferred way of providing service to others - teaching then become my passion. So while working for a local public school district as substitute teacher for general music classes (orchestra, band, choir as well), I was asked to write and teach a beginning songwriting class. From the very first day I had kids' attention wherever I went; and some of those students eventually recorded their own songs in studios.

After 30+ years of professional musicianship spanning across two continents (US and Germany) with originally produced music available on iTunes and two CDs on the market, I have found a unique way of teaching music to others. I most enjoy teaching families with two or more siblings (along with parents, grandparents, etc.) that want to learn to play a variety of instruments and music together.

*** Lesson Details ***
First of all, I'll need to know you or your children's goals, dreams and natural talent(s). What types of music do you love best? Are you more the serious type or fun-loving (I can work with both types of personalities but do require a respectful demeanor).

I stress taking lessons once per week. It is extremely important to develop the brain, nervous system, physical coordination all together with momentum and repetitive physical movements; particularly, the first six months of learning.

Please do not expect overnight success, hand/motor skills need to be developed and that doesn't occur with one or two lessons, unless you've had prior experience on your instrument and just need to refresh your brain's neural pathways.

If you are the creative type and wish to compose your own music, then by all means let me know as I teach not only composition, but arranging, music production as well as legal aspects of copyrights and distribution.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano lessons will be given on my baby grand piano. You will need your own guitar or ukulele, I will be using my Yamaha acoustic-electric classical nylon string guitar OR my Epiphone folk steel string guitar. Please see the photo noting the studio's microphones/vocal monitors, plus I have a variety of hand percussion. There are wide varieties of musical opportunities and experiences with me.

*** Specialties ***
Piano: Beginning/intermediate classical piano; pop (piano/voice). Guitar: Beginning classical guitar (fingerpicking only), or beginning general guitar (notes, chords, fingerpicking, strumming, using a pick). Ukulele: Beginning note and strumming patterns. Voice: I can take you to professional levels! Lastly, I would like to take on students who want to learn Joni Mitchell's style of piano and guitar playing. She has never had any formal music training, only plays by ear, particularly on guitar she uses many open tunings inspired from sounds of nature (i.e., birdsongs, ocean waves, etc.).

Here are three recent written recommendations:

"I would highly recommend Ms. T. She has been coming into our home to teach myself and my three children ranging in age from 10 to 4. She tailors each one of our lessons to our ability level and she approaches each lesson with tenderness, care and respect. She has even created special lessons for my 4 year old to engage his creativity and ideas.We have used other instructors before, but have never had such personal attention. I couldn't imagine using anyone else."
Erin O. May 2012

"Ms. T has been teaching my 6 year old daughter classical piano for almost three years. Ms. T is very patient, knowledgeable and encouraging. My daughter wasn't excited about taking piano lessons initially but has really grown to love to play and looks forward to lessons with Ms. T. I recommend other moms give her a call."
Cathy C. March 2012
Year First Hired: 2011
Top Qualities: Personable, On Time, High Integrity

"I am a 58 year old man who has always wanted to learn to play the piano. It wasn't until I met Susan that this dream became possible. I wasn't sure I could learn a new skill like this but she had me reading and playing music within the first couple of lessons. I am impressed with her teaching skills but her performance skills as well. She made me feel relaxed and confident from the beginning. I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to learn a new instrument and whether you are 4 or 84 she can help make your dream of playing a reality." R. Roberts January 2013

Lucas A. Lewisville, TX

Subjects Taught

Drum, Percussion, Piano

About Me

Hi, my name is Lucas and I am a private lesson teacher in the DFW area. I have been teaching private lessons for the past 6 years. Prior to to that I attended the University of North Texas and received a BM in Music Performance. I teach drums, percussion, piano and music theory. I also am a professional gigging drummer in DFW. I have taught students of all ages and levels starting from 4 years old to adults. If you are looking to start out on an instrument for the first time, I am the teacher you want since I specialize in training beginners with no musical training whatsoever. My lessons are fun and stress free yet challenging enough to notice progress, and I tailor my lessons to the individual focusing on specific learning styles.

*** Lesson Details ***
I have a laid back and fun approach to teaching that has proven to be successful over the years. My drum students start out with basic exercises and patterns that they can do on a practice pad or even on the carpet floor. I then teach them how to read rhythms. If they have a drumset, I would then start them out with some simple rock beats utilizing the rhythms they just learned and emphasizing counting. As the student progresses and is able to play multiple beats and patterns, I then start teaching them how to play along to some simple songs. Playing along to music is the most fun part of the lessons and the most applicable to real life situations. I'm always keeping up with the current pop hits on the radio and like to have the students play along to songs that they know and like. This is a great, fun way to learn and is also challenging as far as keeping the tempo and lining up with the music. I have used this method for years on myself and students and it is a proven method. The book that I like to start out with is The Drumset Musician by Rod Morgenstein. If they are able to master this book, I then move on to more advanced independence books like Future Sounds by David Garibaldi and The New Breed by Gary Chester.

With my piano students I start them out with Piano Adventures Primer Level for children or Piano Adventures for the Adult Beginner if they are an adult. I go through page by page in the book teaching them fundamentals starting with finger coordination then going on to reading music on the staff. This is a good series of books that has multiple levels and is helpful for tracking the progress of the student. My goal in the piano lessons is teaching students how to read music which can be very challenging. I test the students musical memory week by week making sure they know which notes they are playing as well as playing the correct rhythms. I also have them sing the note that they are playing as this is proven to help learn the notes more efficiently.

*** Travel Equipment ***
The student is expected to provide a piano or keyboard for piano lessons or practice pad and/or drum kit. I expect my student to have sticks.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in rock, country and pop.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a loving, very patient, passionate and enthusiastic teacher. I like to motivate, encourage and enjoy the fun making music together.
All lessons are absolutely personalized and based on the student’s age, level and capacity. They are structured and focused for improving skills and achieving student's individual goals.
Students will learn how to prepare and use the body to its utmost capability as a complete instrument and resonator system; how to take and manage the proper breath for a maximum efficiency; how to use the appropriate position to guarantee a healthy sound production and singing technique that will protect and improve the individual voice and last for a lifetime.
Another part of the lesson is focused on selected repertoire: how to approach, understand and perform a specific vocal piece. If you are an advanced student you will be also taught diction in Italian, German, Spanish, Latin and Russian (depends of your needs).
I highly recommend to students to record themselves during the lesson because audio recordings and video recordings are great ways for apprentices to learn by observing their mistakes and strengths.

The piano lessons are focused in building and improving the right technique using special exercises and proper repertoire. I am familiar with many of the Piano Teaching Methods and will recommend the best for you according to your age, level and goals. Learning and playing pieces from different periods and composers is important to develop artistic sensitivity as a performer.
I specialize in classical training and I believe that a strong background in classical music is important for any musician, regardless of their musical preferences.

Whitney H. Dallas, TX

Subjects Taught

English, Piano

About Me

I am a classically trained pianist who competed in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area for 15 years (began lessons at age 5). I graduated from UT Austin with a Bachelor's in Education because I knew I enjoyed teaching. Unfortunately, what I didn't know at that time was I enjoyed teaching outside a classroom setting! That is why I teach independently, and also only on a subject that I hold dear: piano playing.

While I do posses the training that allows me to instruct students who are interested in performance level musicianship, I have students who are beginners or are picking up the skill again. I have one man who wants to learn all the classical pieces. I have one girl who only wants to learn Beauty and the Beast! I love teaching both students because they each present unique challenges, goals and progress. So no matter what your interest is, I will make sure you are happy and successful!

*** Lesson Details ***
What you can expect from me:  After a brief discussion (which involves me asking you what your goals are, what your background in music is, how much time you have to practice, etc.), we will formulate a plan that will help you achieve your goals. Whether that's a goal to learn all your scales by the end of the month, learn where middle C is, learn to read with greater speed, or learn Bach by the end of the year; we can make it happen!  I do not expect you to learn the way I was taught (although if you want a strict regimen as your goal, I can provide that).  I am a big believer in motivating you in the way that helps YOU succeed!  I promise I am patient, pleasant and enjoy my job; you have nothing to be afraid of.

What I expect from you:  I obviously want you to have a piano (you'd be surprised how many people contact me for lessons without one...)  I expect you to show respect for my schedule by cancelling in a reasonable window.  Most importantly, I expect you to communicate honestly with me about your goals and if you want me to change how I explain things, tell me.  After all, I am here to help you learn and it's very easy for a teacher to forget that they aren't breaking down the subject enough for their students.  And I want you to practice!!!!  Pretty please!  PRACTICE IS CRITICAL!

A note to parents: If I am instructing your child, please be prepared to communicate regularly with me about his/her progress and specific goals. I want my students to practice at home on a continuous basis and this may mean you, as the parent, must reinforce this expectation at home with your child on a DAILY basis. The only way to progress in any skill is repetition and structure; piano is no different.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I own a 1942 Kimball Consolette piano (see pic of studio). She's old but she has soul. I have a variety of sheet music that I can provide (the student must sign the music "in and out" when using it so I can keep track of who has what and can only mark it in pencil).

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the student to have pencils in a variety of colors, a metronome and obviously, a piano.

*** Specialties ***
I am a classically trained pianist who competed in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area for 15 years. This means that I was trained to perform and compete only, playing songs that were required by competition guidelines. I participated in everything: Jazz, Sonatina, State, Solo, Ensemble, Regional, Hymn, you name it! This also means my "specialty" is classical music (Mozart, Bach, etc.)
