Allison V. Houston, TX

I use the Master Theory Series curriculum to teach students to recognize and understand the use of musical notation, intervals, scales, and chord progressions, using ear-training to reinforce these concepts. Students can expect to learn how to read music, build scales and chords, and develop sensitive ears to recognize musical patterns.

About Allison

My musical journey began with piano lessons at age 8 followed by flute lessons the next year. My passion for the flute grew as I played in school bands from 4th to 12th grade. I attended Southwestern University from 2009 to 2013 and graduated with a BM in Music Performance on the flute (magna cum laude) and gave private lessons throughout most of my college career with great success. I have performed in several ensembles including the flute choir, wind ensemble and orchestra at SU, as well as The Gilbert and Sullivan Society of Austin Orchestra in their production of The Mikado. I currently play with the Shimmer Flute Choir and Sounds of Silver Flute Quartet, and am an active member of the Houston Flute Club.

Although classically trained I also enjoy classic rock and appreciate music ...

Allison is a great teacher and helped my break down difficult passages into more manageable pieces so that I wouldn't get frustrated and overwhelmed. I always learn a lot when I have a lesson.

Dedicated Flutist and Teacher

Allison has great experience both as a performer and teacher. She understands the technical demands of the flute very well, but she also knows how to make it fun. She can even beatbox with her flute! In addition to being a great musician, she is also very encouraging and helpful. You will find that there is nothing she is more passionate about then playing flute! I highly recommend her as a teacher!

Jeremiah L. Houston, TX

Even drums has music theory. I teach it with all my lessons.

But, for the more advanced drummers, it is very important to have a small foundations of theory to help with the song writing process.
When playing drums in a band, it helps to understand what the other guys are talking about. And when you hear their language you can be more active and will be taken more seriously when you are able to follow along without a hitch! I can help with that.

About Jeremiah

As a Musicians Institute graduate, I've learned from exceptional drummers in the Los Angeles music industry. I gained and learned many tricks of the trade and can offer the same quality education to anyone. As a student myself, I realized that having great sound, solid timing and grove are just as essential as having cool beats to play. There are more technicalities to drumming than being able to play fast or having the best chops.
Aside from learning how to play drums, knowing how to think about music, how to listen to music, and how to study music will give a great foundation to any student of any style.

I first like to determine the students ability and understanding by working on a few coordination exercises and reading exercises.
From a good foundation, I build a ...

Getting Schooled

Technique is paramount when learning to play drums, if you don't have a good, solid technique, your just another sloppy drummer. Enter Jeremiah, an instructor with an excellent ear, picking up quickly on what it is I'm doing wrong, establishing a path to quick correction and selecting a technique right for my style of play. 3 lessons in and my playing is dramatically different, much cleaner and solid on the grooves. This guy has pushed my creativity to a new level and my confidence in live play stacks up to the crowd

Robert C. Houston, TX

I can teach music harmony and theory with an emphasis on contemporary music theory. I can also help students learn music theory from the 'common practice period' (classical) as I have studied that as well.

Leni B. Magnolia, TX

It is essential to understand the building block of music in order to be able see, hear and communicate its meaning.

About Leni

BA in Music, composition and conducting from Hunter College (City University of New York)
Diploma from the Conservatoire de Fontainebleau, France
Studied with Louise Talma, Jacques Louis Monod, Nadia Boulanger

Lessons are about learning to make music, not endless scales and arpeggios which so often lead to pain and injury. Sight reading, theory and interpretation are strong elements from the beginning.

An overwhelming percentage of young, enthusiastic and talented children are discouraged early and give up the piano because they do not enjoy their lessons. Music is one of life's great joys. It should be fun. For the intermediate, and even the advanced, student, it is critical that much more attention be paid to the musicality of the playing and the understanding of the ...

An Amazing Teacher and Musician

I have had Leni as a teacher, and a friend, for several years. I am amazed at how far I have come, and I feel that the technique and the theory behind the methods he teaches are incredible and imperative to the progress I have made, both on the piano and in other areas of music. The atmosphere that he creates is a welcoming and stimulating learning environment. The Taubman technique that he teaches is understandable, helpful, and it is the most successful way to avoid long-term injury to the hands and wrists. I am incredibly grateful to him for his dedication and passion for his work and his students.

Great teacher

I've been taking lessons with Leni B for over a year and I'm loving it. The lessons are fun and I'm learning alot about how to play well. I'm learning much faster than I did with my other teachers and my hands don't get sore from practicing. No lame exercises. It was about the music from the start, and now I can play really well.

Matias E. Houston, TX

The rules of western tonal music have become somewhat difficult to grasp through the years. I'll focus on discussing them with you from the very basics. Notes, rhythm, pitch, timbre, music notation, meter, tonality and many other concepts will become clear after a few lessons.

About Matias

I am Houston-based performer and music educator. The bass guitar -which I have been playing for over seven years- is my main instrument. I have an undying love for teaching and I pride myself in my ability to inspire and educate musicians.
