How I judge my success is by how well my students assimilate my pedagogy. I take complicated concepts and do my best to make them understandable. If you have performance fear, I want to en-courage you. If your technique will harm your product, I want to help you change your approach. If you get tangled up in the language of music, I smooth the confusion through a variety of different media. If you hunger for self-expression, I can put you in an environment which is limited only by the amount and the way that you practice.
I think really good teaching is a constant learning process. The best thing about my having taught for 15 years as a choir director and group/private piano teacher in the Texas public school system is this: if you, as my student, have a problem understanding something, odds are that I have found a way to explain it or a similar issue with one of the thousands of students I've taught over the years.
I have a Bachelor's in Music, Masters classes in Voice and am a Certified All -Level Music Teacher by the state. My hobby,though is how people think as they express music, how they feel, what the whole musical process is. - that's me. I truly love the teaching/learning experience.

I'm a musician, music producer, audio engineer, songwriter, & Texas certified music educator (EC-12). I was born & raised in Fort Worth, Texas, & I'm known for my unique "Synth/Moog/Coloring/Talkbox" keyboard & jazz-scat vocal techniques. Since the age of 15, I've been blessed to play/sing with some the music industry's most prolific artists. I have a serious passion for music & I'm the CEO of my own business, music production company, NMR PRODUCTIONS. I'm also a former music educator with the Fort Worth Independent School District, where I served for 8 months as a substitute, before accepting a head choral director position at Eastern Hills HS and Handley MS, where I served for 4 years. Due to health reasons, I resigned from FWISD. It was indeed a life decision, and in that, it's allowed me to pursue music full time, as a professional touring musician/artist/private music instructor.
I'm internationally known to many as "Ms.Music". My calling, purpose, & personal goal is to bring back the feeling of music and encourage/inspire people through the art of music. When I'm not traveling, I'm working on my debut album, "Elements of Me", which will be released soon & it will showcase more of my many talents. "Still Be Loving U", the highly anticipated single, is currently available on iTunes & the debut video is currently on my YouTube.com/NMRmusic channel.
During my 17 year career, I've played keyboards and/or sang background, on spot dates, with various national recording artists: Erykah Badu, Yarbrough & Peoples, Angela Blair, Clark Terry, Ralph Tresvant, Bernard Wright, Bad Boy Recording artist Cheri Dennis, Stokely Williams of Mint Condition, Cherish Love, Faith Anderson, Ted & Sheri, Terrace Martin (Music Director for Snoop Dogg & Kendrick Lamar), William Beckton, Madukwu Chinwah, Daryle Coley, Michael League of Snarky Puppy, Marvin Sapp, Darrell Blair, Candy West, Choklate, Carmen Rodgers, Quentin Moore, NERDBOI, Kirk Franklin, Crystal Akin, Dr. Tony Evans, Michael Bethany, Porsche Smith, Common Folk (Rickey Smiley band), & YahZarah.
In 2006, I auditioned for Beyoncé's all girl band, engineered for Gospel recording artist/Actress Tamela Mann in 2007; and, opened up for Bobby Brown, PJ Morton (keyboardist for Maroon 5) and others. In 2008, I auditioned, on keyboards, for Sean "Diddy" Combs' hit MTV sitcom, "Making His Band", which aired summer of 2009.
While working on my debut album, I also recorded a 3-song EP with my 5-piece all female band, Beauty & the Beats. Together we are bringing back funky, soulful, live music--with a bang! With inspirational elements from acts like Kylmaxx, Prince, PJ Morton, Robert Glasper Experiment, Aretha Franklin, & Weather Report--Beauty & the Beats is known to leave their audience raving for an encore! Beauty & the Beats recently performed a concert at The House of Blues in Dallas, TX on November 18, 2012--which was AWESOME!! I'll post come videos for you to see what I do.

Hi! My name is Jennifer F. I just graduated with my masters in music from the University of Redlands. I received my bachelor's degree from the University of Louisiana at Monroe. Through my college career, I was able to perform in many musical productions. Some of these roles include: Yvonne in Miss Saigon (Louisiana Lyric Opera), Mother in Hansel and Gretel (University of Louisiana at Monroe), Erma in Anything Goes (University of Louisiana at Monroe), Euridice in Orfeo ed Euridice (University of Redlands), and Suor Angelica in Suor Angelica (University of Redlands). There are many performance coming up this year, also!
During my time in Undergrad, I had the opportunities to study abroad for two summers. I was accepted into University of Miami's Salzburg program (2009), and the following summer did Westminster Choir College's Florence Voice Seminar (2010). Throughout both of these experiences, I was able to work with world renowned teachers and coaches. These programs helped me grow as a teacher and a performer.
I am a member of NATS (National Association of Teachers of Singing)
With the experience I have, I hope to start teaching you someday!

Here in Dallas I perform in plays and musicals on a regular basis and I love it!! What gets me excited now is teaching kids, teens and people of all ages to sing or play the piano!

Jerod began teaching music at the age of 16. After growing up singing and playing the piano, he started sharing his gift with others through instruction. His experience with All-State choirs, solo & ensemble contests, talent shows, and church performances gave him special insight into his student's desires in music.
While attending Baylor University, where he received a BA in music with an emphasis in voice, Jerod teamed up with 3 other vocalists to form a group called Sign of Jonah. Together, the group recorded 2 albums and performed hundreds of shows across the country.
After returning from Nashville and his time with Sign of Jonah, Jerod began teaching, singing, and songwriting again. He completed recording and co-producing his first solo album of 13 original songs in 2008. In 2010 he finished recording an acoustic EP with "Between Green Walls" and performed at the House of Blues, Dallas.
With students ranging from age 4 to 64, Jerod finds himself teaching all kinds of styles of music. He has a natural and engaging way of explaining musical concepts to old and young.
Currently, Jerod is the Associate Worship Pastor at Fellowship Bible Church Dallas.
