Drum, Piano, Music Recording, Music Theory, Percussion
I am a graduate of Northwest Vista College (AA Music Technology) and Schreiner University (BA Music). I have been playing piano and drums for seven years and working with music technology for five years.
On piano I have studied with many fine pianists including Dr. Hsin Chan and Dr. Beth May of Northwest Vista college and Dr. Don Crandall, head of Schreiner University's music department. I have experience reading everything from pop charts to Bach. As such, I am comfortable helping students learn almost any style of music they are interested in. That said, students looking to learn advanced jazz techniques should probably look elsewhere, since I am still studying that myself!
On drums I have studied with John Godoy, principal timpanist of the Corpus Christi Orchestra and Don Gilbert the principal timpanist of Kerrville’s Symphony of the Hills orchestra. Additionally, I have played in ensembles ranging from rock bands to orchestras. My primary area of expertise on drum set is rock style playing but I am also comfortable teaching the basics of jazz style playing.
On the music technology side of things I have experience with both recording and in the box production techniques, which is to say, making music with software on a computer. I got started with music production working on music of my own. Later I improved my skills by studying at Northwest Vista, acting as recording engineer for a San Antonio music school, doing concert recordings for the Schreiner University concert band, and mixing albums for local bands.
With music school behind me I am now working on a computer science degree at UTSA. I hope to develop music production software after completing this second degree. If this endeavour does not work out I will probably head off to graduate school somewhere.

Danny believes that making a dream happen requires being solid on faith, being a visionary and also being ready to act and move on the impulse. Sometimes life throws us a curve ball and you have to be ready to move. With life experience and hardships.

Danny states, In life I only see solutions and happiness in all aspects; I use my talents to express joy laughter and happiness through music poetry, motivational speaking, vocal lessons and comedy. I understand that sometimes you have to go through trial and error, but that's okay because that's how we learn to develop wisdom as people. I am forever humble and gracious about all my blessings because I know that someone out there is experiencing true misfortune, poverty and negativity. I surround my life, spirit thoughts, energy around people of positive driven energy and I project the same where ever I go. I love life and living!

My name is Tracy. I am so excited for the chance to be working with you. Here is a little background on my musical training and experience.
I started taking piano lessons at the age of 12 from Karen Hudson, (a highly respected piano teacher in San Antonio), using the Suzuki Piano Method (an advanced Japanese curriculum). Although I started a little later than the average student, I discovered right away that I had a great love and passion for the instrument.
I joined my church praise and worship team when I was 15 and have been playing on praise and worship teams ever since. I have worked with beginners all the way to professional musicians and band leaders and have attended several music conferences (including Hillsong Conference in Sydney, Australia.)
My senior year of high school I studied under renowned Russian Concert Pianist Anya Grockovski at the San Antonio School for Inquiry and Creativity. From there I studied with Elizabeth Gutierrez as a music student at University of Texas at San Antonio, and then received my bachelors of arts in Music Marketing. Throughout High School and College I performed in numerous recitals and local competitions.
While attending UTSA, I was the band leader for the UTSA Campus Crusade for Christ Praise and Worship team for 2 years.
During my music studies at UTSA, I was trained in classical music performance, history, theory and Jazz performance.
I have been teaching since the age of 15. I LOVE teaching piano and music theory to students of all ages! I have taught private lessons and group lessons with students ranging from 3 to senior citizens (not all together obviously!).

I been playing the guitar professionally for over 20 years. In that time I had the good fortune to perform and record with some really good musicians. I've played in various bands ranging from rock to jazz and flamenco. I received my bachelor's degree in recording engineer and record producer from LBCC.
I'm currently a Guitar Teacher for different music schools and have a number of private students as well.
I’m a patient and fun teacher with formal training in opera/classical music from the University of Denver Lamont School of music. I sing and teach all vocal styles from Opera to Pop to Country. I love music and I LOVE to sing and play piano. I started piano at age 7 and enjoy teaching young beginners. I am currently taking students for the summer only and there is a possibility I can keep teaching you after that depending on schedules.
Others would describe me as enthusiastic, intuitive, fun, caring and someone who encourages students by giving both constructive and positive feedback. I strongly believe that positive reinforcement is critical in teaching music to children.
I recorded a country album called “Lone Star Lonely” in Nashville and had two releases in the Top Album Cuts the Gavin Music Trade Magazine Country Chart. I sing at weddings, local events, trade shows, and dance halls. Music has been part of my life since I was 7 years old.
