About Me

Greetings and Salutations! I want to let you know, whether you're a music student or a fellow lover of music, that you have great untapped potential for music! More so than most people would tell you, because music is a powerful, life giving, uplifting gift that comes to all those that love and enjoy it.

If you have a desire to pursue music in any shape or fashion. I congratulate you! You open to yourself a brand new world filled with fun, excitement and great opportunities.

My Philosophy:

There is great music potential waiting to be untapped in yourself. I value greatly the time I spend with every student and wish them to become the very best at the instrument they wish to pursue.

There is indescribable expression to be found in music. A wide range of emotions can be conveyed along with untold stories just waiting to be opened up. I will help foster a student's ability to see music for what it really is and help them strive for whatever musician they wish to become, whether it be for personal fulfillment, just for fun and recreation, or even in the pursuit of becoming an effective classical musician.

My Education:

My mother took me took a classical concert when I was six and I sat in the front of the stringed section. After the concert I made my decision that would shape the rest of my life, I wanted to become like those musicians.

I eventually graduated from a local music school in the following years in piano and violin and immediately went to enter the Tchaikovsky Conservatory. I was among the 10 out of 40 applicants that were eventually chosen, along with being the youngest of them as well.

After four years of study, I graduated and received my Bachelor's Degree in Music. I then went on to study for another year and received my Master's Degree in Piano.

My Other Experience:

I was Church Music Director in Kiev for Living Water Church from 2002 - 2010. I directed the adult choir, directed and led church worship services, accompanied various musicians and managed all aspects of church music responsibilities, including budgeting, rehearsals, planning and library management.

I also have been a private music teacher for several years teaching adults and young students. I planned lessons with them and established their repertoire.

I am also fluent in the Russian language and have extensive computer literacy.

*** Lesson Details ***
I pay close attention to the fundamentals of music especially throughout the early lessons. These include reading notes, measuring tempo and rhythm, sight reading, hand positioning, posture, and technique.

I believe in positive reinforcement for all my students. Building a kind and friendly atmosphere is paramount for encouraging students, especially children, to continue pursuing music. Everyone I believe has hidden music potential, and I believe the key to unlocking this is through inspiration. Music is a grand adventure of excitement and discovery for everyone.

I am very kind and honest with my students and am never too strict with them, but I do require and greatly encourage regularly that they make habitual practice a vital part of their musical education. As the old saying goes, "Practice makes Perfect." There is great truth to that saying especially when learning a musical instrument.

Bryan M. Tomball, TX

Subjects Taught

Broadway Singing, Music Performance, Music Recording, Music Theory, Opera Voice, Singing, Speaking Voice

About Me

Baritone, Bryan holds a bachelor of music in classical voice from the Manhattan School of Music and a Master of Arts degree from New York University with a concentration in vocal jazz and studio music.

At 15 he was given his first Frank Sinatra record, which he would listen to for hours, studying the nuances and phrasing. In the fall of 1995, Bryan entered the Manhattan School of Music in NYC, where he majored in classical voice. During his freshman year, Bryan performed several times on New York’s restaurant row, including Don’t Tell Mamas and Danny’s Skylight Room, where he thrilled audiences with his own style and voice accompanied by his newly formed jazz trio.

In the summer of 1997, Bryan accepted an offer from the Glenn Miller Orchestra to begin touring. The tour took him all over the US, Canada, the Hawaiian Islands and Japan. He returned to the Manhattan School of Music to finish his undergraduate degree in 2000, but he remained in New York City to complete his Master’s degree from New York University in jazz and contemporary music. Then, in 2002, Bryan joined the off-Broadway cast of “Our Sinatra,” a production about the musical legacy of the late Frank Sinatra—the show ran an unprecedented two and a half years.

In addition to touring the world with his jazz trio, Bryan has had the pleasure of working with The Glenn Miller Orchestra, The New Gene Krupa Orchestra, The Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, and The Nelson Riddle Orchestra.

“Bryan is a first rate singer of the songs of the American Popular Songbook. Great voices are abundant out there and he is one of them,
but what sets him apart is his musicality and ability to communicate. He has done many performances of my production Our Sinatra and he falls into that elite group of the very few young singers who really understand this music.”

-Jack Lewin
Producer “Our Sinatra”

“Bryan Anthony evokes memories of the young Sinatra without trying to pass himself off as a reincarnation.”

-Francis Davis
The Village Voice

Bryan's second record "Songs For Dreamer's", which includes many songs of the “Great American Songbook,” is available for download on itunes and rhapsody. His new record, “A Night Like This,” recorded with the Gary Norian trio, includes several original songs as well as re-imagined standards and was released in July of 2011 by Mercator Media. This record is also available for download on itunes.

In the studio, the focus is on arming his students with the tools and skills necessary to enjoy their musical journeys more fully. This task is undertaken by strengthening and building a healthy technique while concurrently cultivating a strong sense of artistry, creativity and respect for the process of preparing and performing vocal music.

*** Lesson Details ***
Bryan will tailor his lessons to the goals of his individual students. He will focus on the technical aspects of building a healthy and sustainable way of singing that will be able to be used for any genre of music. Bryan specializes in jazz and the songs of "The Great American Songbook" which encompass the likes of the Gershwins, Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, Sammy Cahn, Jule Styne, Steven Sondheim, etc. "I will help the students find repertoire that will fit their own personality so they will be able to really get inside of the songs they sing. I will teach the art of performance practice for each song that we choose to work on. " My approach to building a students repertoire is quality not quantity.

Bryan feels it is important to get out of the lessons what each individual student wants. So, he doesn’t have a set curriculum. Instead, he tailors each lesson to the individual student. Bryan is a very patient teacher and presents material in an easily digestible manner, so that you will progress at your own pace. Bryan loves working with beginners and getting them off to a good start, as much as he enjoys taking advanced students to the next level.

Among the aspects that set Bryan apart from other teachers is his extensive knowledge about the history of music, especially the songs of the "Great American Songbook, technical aspects of singing and music theory. He is able to relate whatever you are doing to the core fundamentals of healthy singing and music in general. He feels it is essential to understand what you are singing and why you are singing it.

About Me

I've loved music since I was able to walk. When I was 5 or 6, I would listen to my mother's stereo system, with Jim Croce playing on the 8-Track tape deck.....(ok, so I'm aging myself a little bit). I would lay on the floor in between the speakers which were turned inward toward my ears. I could lay there for hours, tapping my toes to "Bad Bad Leroy Brown", "Roller Derby Queen", "You Don't Mess Around with Jim", and many others. I would also listen to the Beatles, Seargent Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band", and "Revolution" and be completely taken away. I didn't realize it then, but what captivated me were the songs that were written to tell stories, and the music that brought the stories to life. As I grew into my early teens, I got into Kiss, Alice Cooper, Rush, Ted Nugent, and Jimi Hendrix. (His version of "All Along the Watch Tower" was much better than Bob Dylan's original version)

During my high school years I got more into Hard Rock and Heavy Metal, because of it's energy, and decided to start learning how to play the bass guitar. As the '80s music scene was going down hill with music from Boy George and Pet Shop Boys, along with so many LA "Hair Bands", I turned off the radio. I would spend hours in record stores picking out albums from my favorites, and would go see them in concert when I could. But when I saw Sammy Hagar during his "Three Lock Box" tour, and Ted Nugent promoting his "Wango Tango" album, I realized that I wanted to be a rock star. I wanted to play guitar with such heart and soul, and write songs that inspired and excited audiences! So I bought my first guitar for $300 at a pawn shop, which was a Gibson Sonex - 180.

After playing bass guitar for the high school jazz band for a couple of years, I wanted to learn more about song writing. I was 17 when I started taking lessons. What I noticed most of all is that my instructors were trying to teach me how to play songs on the guitar, not HOW to play the guitar. I then decided the only way to learn to play the guitar is to figure out the "why" of chords, and scales, and why certain tones when payed together instill a certain emotion when heard. This way, when someone asked if I could play guitar, I could honestly say, "Yes". I would pick out certain songs to learn as a study reference, and then figure out different ways of playing them. I only wanted to play the guitar so that I could play my own creations, or improvise with a band.

In my college years, I lived in Switzerland, studying the hotel business. During my off days, I would take my guitar out into the town, and play for extra money. It was a great experience, and a way to meet a lot of different people from around the world!

Ok...enough of the biography. When I got back to the states, I decided the hotel business was not for me, and went in search of my calling. I started going to the community college, and discovered I wanted to become a music teacher! I was working full time in sales, selling telephone systems to businesses, and going to school at night. I learned the art of public speaking, and giving presentations. I gained teaching experience through giving sales training seminars, and through teaching martial arts. (I was a 2nd degree Black Belt of Aikido at the time)

As the years past, I joined the contemporary praise and worship band at my church, which allowed me to play in a band in front of an audience. I was also recruited into a local band called Covenant, formed by a couple of people from my church. Over 10 years, we toured and we recorded 2 Cd's and a live video concert!

I was still in the career of Telecommunications sales, but then the bottom dropped out of the economy, and I got layed off for the 3rd time in 2 years. So, I decided to change my career direction. I opened up my teaching practice full time, and developed a special curriculum that can be tailored to fit the individual students' personal goals, and learning ability! I've been teaching for over 16 years now, and specifically music for almost 5 years. I've taught beginners, intermediates, and advanced students from the ages of 7 to 65. My favorite students are the ones that have the desire to play. and dedication to practice.

Customized Lessons:
The customized lesson curricula are provided to fit the exact learning style of the student. I specialize in working with all student types; lefty, righty, beginner, intermediate, or the pro that is trying to learn something new. The focus is on how to play the instrument, and how to apply music theory to create music, not just learning songs. The first lesson is a brief interview between the student and teacher to customize the lesson plan. The second lesson focuses on goal setting and how to have a productive practice. Then the lesson plan is designed, and I create a personalized lesson binder for the student with the course material for the first year, along with the practice guides to go with each lesson.

*** Studio Equipment ***
12x14 studio / music room: 36 guitars, amps, basses, computer, recording software, and a comfortable chair for the parent who wants to accompany the younger students.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide each student with their own personalized binder with the lesson program, and practice items. I also provide music stands. If the student doesn't have their gear yet, I can offer my expertise in finding the right instrument / equipment to fit the student.

*** Specialties ***
I focus on teaching how to play the instrument, and use songs as study guides or references for the music theory part of my lessons. The genres that I cover are Classical, Folk, Country, Rock, Heavy Metal, Blues, and Jazz. I teach fingerpicking, and standard picking styles, as well as intermediate and advanced techniques. The foundation of my method revolves around inspiring creativity, and how to present emotion in the music.

Issaac J. Conroe, TX

Subjects Taught

Acting, Arithmetic, Basic Math, Cartooning, Creative Writing, Drawing, Elementary Math, Music Performance, Music Recording, Music Theory, Piano, Public Speaking, Reading, Songwriting, Speaking Voice

About Me

You Feed Your Body and I’ll Feed Your Mind!
My name is Issaac and my philosophy is that learning should be fun and enjoyable. It is from that premise I tutor the following subjects: General Music, Music Theory, Composition/Songwriting, Piano/Keyboard, Music Production, Drawing/Cartooning, Theater, Public Speaking, Creative Writing, Career Development, College Counseling, Study Skills, Reading, Arithmetic, Microsoft Word, Biblical Studies and Religion.

I am originally from New York City and now I reside in Texas. I am a graduate of The High School of Art & Design in New York City specializing in Animation and Cartooning. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree as a Music major with a minor in Art from The City College of New York. I was awarded an honorary Master’s Degree of Sacred Music from Friends International Christian University in California for my accomplishments in Music Composition, teaching Piano/Keyboard and Music Theory and for Church Music rendered for weekly services, conferences, convocations, concerts and theatrical performances.
My first musical training began in elementary school on the soprano recorder, clarinet and keyboard (small organ). I studied classical piano for about 10 years. At the age of 17 I started playing regularly for church services and developed my gospel music style and improvisational skills. I have been composing music since I was 16 years old. I am grateful to all my music teachers and professors for developing my skills and broadening my musical awareness to the great diversity of musical expression. There may be styles that I may not like but I can appreciate the musicianship involved in the creation and performance of that genre of music. And it is from that thought of enlightenment that I will encourage my students to appreciate the different types of music and the cultural group that is communicating through it. For I agree with the statement that “music is the universal language.”
It was at City College as a Music major that I attended courses in: Music History, Music Theory, Musicianship, Harmony, Orchestration, Jazz History, Jazz Arranging, African Music, Voice, Chorus, Gospel Choir and Electronic Music. It is from that wealth of knowledge, training and understanding of music that a solid foundation was laid for me as a musician. I was able to grow and develop musically not just to benefit myself and those who heard my music but also for all the budding musicians who need someone to share that knowledge, wisdom and understanding unto them as well.
I have been an artist since kindergarten and my specialty is cartooning. I was blessed to have studied art at Art & Design where I was shown the various disciplines of art, i.e., sculpture, photography, graphic design, drawing, painting, illustration etc. In my junior and senior years I majored in animation and cartooning. At City College I continued my art studies in: Art History, African Art, Ancient Egyptian Art, Drawing, Painting and 2 & 3 Dimensional Designs. I love cartoons, its history and how it has evolved over the years. I will impart to my students the basic techniques to lay a foundation. Then after that I will assist them to discover their own unique artistic style of expression. It is from my well-rounded artistic educational experience that I can be an even more effective as a teacher and tutor of art in general and especially in cartooning.
I have had the privilege to develop my acting, script writing (plays, skits), improvisational acting, directing/producing and stage management skills for over ten years at the former Master Theater located in the Upper Westside section of Manhattan. I can assist you and/or your child/children with:
 How to overcome stage fright and gain confidence on the stage?
 How to bring depth to the character that you portray?
 How to project your voice as well as make that connection with the audience?
 How to manage a stage production, auditions, rehearsals etc.?

Parents/guardians I want you to feel at ease with allowing your child/children to be tutored by me. I love working with children. I have worked with children in private tutoring, music lessons, dance/drama/choir/band rehearsals at church, Sunday school classes, plays and skits for many years. Your input as the parent/guardian is invaluable to me and there will be times that we will need to communicate outside of the tutorial session on:
 What progress has your child/children made?
 What direction do I need to go in to help facilitate that?
 How can I better serve you both in this capacity?
I do not think there are many things that are greater to me than to see a child that had struggled with a subject to finally realize that she or he can overcome it and master it. When I see the joy of accomplishment on his or her face to me that moment is priceless!
I have taught students of all ages, in private and classroom settings for over 25 years. If you are an older student do not be intimidated by the obstacles that you may encounter with a particular subject. Take a deep breath and relax. I am here to serve you. I am not looking for the perfect student. I am looking for the student who knows that she/he is struggling with a subject and needs some help. My prerequisite is that you the student have a desire to master whatever subject that you are presently challenged with. That is it! Also you may need some help with a subject that you have studied before but just need to brush up on. I will provide for you that one-on-one guidance to get you right back on track.
I like to have a structured yet informal approach to my sessions. I teach/tutor online and in the student’s home (or a mutual agreed upon location, i.e., school, community center, library etc.) I want you the student to experience an atmosphere that is calm yet constructive. I am not the infamous teacher who will whack you on the hand with a ruler if you make a mistake. In fact I will encourage you the student to tell me of the mistakes that you make. It is with this valuable information I will be better equipped to assist you in those points of contention that you have the most difficulty with in that particular subject.
Learning can be a fun and an enjoyable experience and I want to convey that philosophy in all of my lessons with all of my students. I will use interactive methods and materials as appropriate for the student’s age and the subject matter. I like for my lessons to involve as many senses as possible because it helps make the lesson to be more enjoyable. Plus this will also help the student to retain the knowledge in a more concrete tangible way. The learning process can be a memorable experience and should not ever be perceived as a boring dreaded form of punishment.

Finally, I ask all my parents/guardians and students this one thing that if you benefit in any way from my tutorial services please tell everyone.
All referrals are greatly appreciated!
You Feed Your Body and I’ll Feed Your Mind!

*** Lesson Details ***
At this time I am conducting lessons at the student's home or online. I prefer a structured yet relaxed approach to my lessons. I will work with students regarding materials used unless I see that it would be counter productive to the learning process of the subject matter in question. Most of all I want each lesson to be both a rewarding and enjoyable experience!
