Hello, my name is Ben and GUITAR IS MY BUSINESS...AND MY BUSINESS IS GOOD so please consider me. I've been playing guitar for over 18 years and have been in paying bands for 12 years. Recently after the band broke up I decided to further my education and went to Musicians Institute in Hollywood California. There I was taught by the best guitar players in the world. Marty Friedman, Paul Gilbert, Scott Henderson, Tommy Emmanuel and Johnny Hiland were just a few of the great players who gave clinics there. I received a degree in Guitar Performance and the knowledge I received there made me UNDERSTAND the mystery that is the guitar.
I can teach Rock/Metal, Country(lead and ryhthm), Blues, Alternative, Acoustic, Classical, Chord Melody, Melodic Soloing, Twang, Chords, Scales, Modes, Many different lead and rhythm techniques and more importantly any song you want to go over.
I feel learning to play your favorite songs is the most important and the most fun about guitar playing. After playing songs, some of the information given(scales, chords, theory, eartraining) starts to make some since and you begin to slowly figure the guitar out.
Theory and Eartraining I feel are very important to learn when trying to understand music. It just gives you a basic mathematical way of understanding how music works. It can be very frustrating to learn and takes some time to sink in so if you don't want to learn it then that is great. Eartraining is cool because when you start to understand it you can actually hear music and not just listen to it. You can listen to a chord progression on the radio and go home and play it and also improvise over it.
I encourage BEGGINERS through EXPERT to at least hear what I have to say. I have A LOT of information to give about the guitar. I played for ten years made 2 demo cds, one full length album, another demo specifically for Metal Blade Records, was in a big cover band and so I thought I knew it all and was a great guitar player. Then I went to GUITAR SCHOOL in Hollywood and reality hit me.
I wasn't as good as I thought. When you hear the best guitar players in the world everyday for a year and a half like I did at Musicians Institute it makes you want to be better and practice, practice,practice. I learned everything there about guitar and music and I know the Right way to teach.
Please consider me for your guitar teacher I will make it fun and a good learning experience as well.

Kelsey T. is a composer of music for quartet, string ensembles, piano, guitar, and chorus. While studying music at the University of North Texas, Kelsey was classically trained to play guitar and piano, while performing in the Men's Chorus. His piece "Colors" (2010) for string quartet & piano became a point of interest in the writing of "161 Glass: Site Specific Music in an Artistic Context" by Christina Rusnak, Composer and Executive Director of Philadelphia's award winning ensemble, Orchestra 2001. Having been influenced by the musical works of Reich, Glass, and Xenakis, Kelsey's composition style is attributed to his interdisciplinary study of Music & Architecture. Today, he continues his work as a music teacher, contemporary composer, and as an architectural drafter for various architects in the Dallas-Fort Worth Area.
Piano, Music Performance, Music Theory, Songwriting
I absolutely LOVE teaching piano. I use a 'Lab' concept ("Lakewood Piano Lab") and every single lesson is exciting, fun, and effective, both for me and for each student.
I started teaching piano with one student in 1998, and went full time in 2002.
We learn pieces by ear, we learn to read music well (all styles of music), we learn interpretation and musicianship, we learn how to play the piano easily without injury, we improvise, we jam.
Annual spring recitals are optional, and are open to all students.
My studio presents a friendly space for lessons. There is an adjoining, comfortable waiting room for parents, siblings, nannies.
I studied music and piano with Nadine Johnson, Jac Murphy, Dr. William Armstong, Dr. Bruce Lunkley, Dan Hearle, Rich Matteson, North Texas State University (now UNT), Royal Academy of Music, and Tamir Hendleman.
Performing experience includes: accompanying singers like Paul Salos, Breggett Rideaux, and Diana Savage, playing piano for private parties and events, playing in the M Street Quartet at restaurants, "Big D" country music revue and dance, a couple of years with the Balcony Club band "Cheap, Fast, and Easy" and professional church pianist.
"I am committed to learning with students. I am constantly curious what is best for each student. I am so grateful for students who continue studying with me year after year."
Great references and "all questions answered" (much more information) - available anytime.

Music Job History:
2005-present Private Piano Lessons at home studio
Was Elementary Principal, Owen Elementary, Lewisville ISD
My music teaching/playing background also includes: private piano instructor at home studio, elementary music teacher in Lewisville ISD and Odessa Public Schools, piano accompanist for middle school/high school band Solo Contests, former church accompanist for Methodist churches
Have 3 children, now ages 22, 24, and 26
Love gardening, reading, playing piano, ringing handbells.
I believe performing is an important part of music learning, so I schedule at least 2 recitals each year. Some of my adults prefer not to perform and that is okay too. My students played a Christmas recital recently and played so wonderfully! The more you perform, the easier it gets!

30 years of teaching and performing music proves that I can teach and inspire anyone who loves music. Better yet, due to amazing technology and the World Wide Web, I can teach in your very own home no matter where you live! All you need is an internet connection, a Skype account and an instrument.
I love music and I love sharing it with others. Music is fun, educational, and inspirational, and my love for it is contagious.
I’ve spent most of my life learning as much as I could as fast as I could about music. I completed my Master of Music degree from the University of New Mexico in 1989 and completed 50+ hours towards a Doctorate of Musical Arts from the University of North Texas. I’ve had articles published in “Flute Talk” and “Flute Forum,” and I was the Advertising Editor for the National Flute Association's "Flutist Quarterly" for five years. I am continuing to learn, as I recently purchased "Tiny," my electric bass, and sometimes perform on it with the praise and worship team at church.
I am a teacher at heart! I have taught music lessons since the early 1980’s. Some weeks I teach 60 students-from the very young, beginning piano student, to adult students who have always wanted to take music lessons. As a graduate student, I taught at Baylor University and the University of North Texas. I got an Alternative Teachers License in Colorado so I could teach music in the public schools. Many of my students have achieved Superior ratings in music competitions and my adult flute choir was invited to perform for the National Flute Association's Annual Convention in Las Vegas, NV.
I think of myself as a professional teacher. Even after 30 years, I still enjoy the excitement and challenge new students bring. I love to inspire. My students and their parents say I have unlimited patience. I am very flexible in my teaching style, catering it to the needs of the student.
I hope you'll contact me and let me inspire you or your child(ren) with music!
Drum, Music Performance, Music Theory, Songwriting
Hello, I’m Thomas, but most people call me T. I started taking private drum lessons when I was 6 years old from Lucy Flohr. Ms. Lucy was one of the most influential and important people in my development not only as a drummer but in life as well (she’s the lady in my profile picture). I met her at 6, and we’re still friends 30 years later.
After Lucy I started lessons with professors at UNT (which in those days was NTSU). My glam band, Skin Deep, was getting major record deal offers, but it was 1992 when grunge took over. So under guidance of our attorney we didn’t sign any offers. With my high hopes deflated and a musically defeated heart I had to make a change. So instead of going to UNT to study music which I had been being groomed to do, I chose to go to Austin and attend UT. I graduated from UT in 1997 with a degree in psychology and decided to move to Los Angeles to follow my dream. My band broke up about a month later, but I formed a new one (Milkweed…which morphed into a blue grass band after I left, now called River Rouge) and got an indy record deal. We released "Milkweed....For Breakfast" on my birthday in 2000, and we did lots of regional touring for the next 3 years. Then I moved back to Dallas and joined JackAcid. We released "Life Through a Crazy Straw" on another independent label and toured regionally for a few years. Next was Crossing Ellum, which was fronted by Matthew JC (Founder of Emmy winning Small Guy Music and “Matthew JC and the All Stars”). I currently play in a heavy rock band named Social Jab.
I started teaching classmates in 7th grade and continued through high school. Then I took a hiatus from teaching with just a student here and there during college and my touring days. Now I'm back to teaching more than I'm playing, and I love it! I believe music is a phenomenal gift to us all in every facet, from listening, to learning, to creating, to performing, and it’s an honor to be able to share my knowledge and experiences to help others learn to appreciate the blessing of music.
