Robert is a very competent, patient, and kind music teacher. He is always trying to be encouraging and practical. He pointed out my strong area and weakness in a honest and comfortable way. I improved so much during the pass six month of singing lesson and am happy to learn some lovely songs. Now I start guitar lesson with him. Both singing and guitar lessons are challenging to Robert and me as I am not a young learner and everything had to start from the beginning. It has been a pleasure learning music from him. He loves animals and lives with his wife in a lovely apartment; they have a dog, a cat, and a turtle.

My teacher has been challenging me with work specifically designed to help me in the
areas where I am weak. I have walked away from every lesson with at least one or two new things to immediately help me improve. I couldn't ask for more than that. I plan to take four more lessons before evaluating my progress again. To say I am
pleased with the quality of teaching I have been receiving would be an understatement.

Bobby is an excellent teacher.

My daughter is eight years old, and she has had an excellent experience with Bobby. He has a gift for being able to push her and correct her while encouraging her at the same time. She loves her weekly lessons.

About John

I have an associates degree in music and I have been teaching lessons for more than five years now. I also have two years experience as a substitute teacher. As a substitute, I have taught all grades, all subjects, and I have helped out many kinds of students each with their own way of learning.

Besides teaching, I love learning too. Anytime I have a question I immediately start seeking out the answer. Learning never stops!

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons will be very informative. I have a lot of information to get out all the time. Don't be surprised if something I show you blows your mind. I also like to have fun and I'm sure my students do too. There won't be a boring lesson from me.

Troy W. Houston, TX

I have been teaching this subject for over 10 years. There is no specific curriculum as each student will come to lessons with their own unique skills, needs, and goals. Lessons are tailored to those specifics. It is not necessary to know how to read music at the first lesson. However, learning to read is required for subsequent lessons. Many young composers have great ideas but can only hear them in their heads or play them on an instrument. Lessons will allow you to obtain the skills to write them down with greater speed, accuracy, and clarity. More advance students will also include exploring a wider range of harmonic languages, advanced notation, instrumentation, orchestration, and aural skills. Students should come to the first lesson with examples of their work, either notated or recorded in a digital format. They should be prepared to discuss their background & goals and the plan of their course of study. Lessons are a minimum of 60 minutes once per week.

We first started lessons with Troy almost three years ago, and we continue to be impressed with the progress made over just a few years of practicing! Our oldest son, who is now eight, has worked very hard to prepare his weekly lessons. He works on short pieces, sight-reading, and now ear training.
Troy’s impressive training has given him a very well-rounded appreciation of music that is rare in a teacher –most focus on one thing, with the result leaning heavily towards technique or theory. He is able to incorporate multiple aspects of a piece so that they are all equally weighted, and neither the minor points nor the big picture are neglected.
Perhaps more impressive than Troy’s educational background is his ability to make learning piano fun! He is an outstanding teacher!

I have been taking piano lessons with Troy for about a year and a half. He is very knowledgeable and has been an excellent instructor. I took piano lessons many years ago so I was not a complete beginner, but Troy has helped me learn more of the music theory, and a number of other things that were either missed or forgotten in my early training. It has been great getting back into piano and I think Troy has been very flexible in letting me explain what I want to get out of the lessons. I have enjoyed the time with him and would recommend his teaching to others!

I have lessons with Troy for almost 2 years now. He is a great teacher, sound in music knowledge and excellent in teaching skills. He recognizes my strength, encouraging me to push its further, and at the same time, fills up holes on my music backgrounds and piano techniques via selective music pieces. I especially like the depth and the passion he brings into each music piece.
I have lessons with several teachers before and I would say Troy is one of the best teacher I have ever had. With him, I have gained much more knowledge on music, and made great progress on music reading, analysis, and piano practise techniques. I always like music, and he makes me like it even more :).

I find Rafael very patient and encouraging. I am absolutely new to the guitar.

I am a senior and needs lot of help. I am also a retiree; and since I was always interested in learning to play the guitar I thought I would give it a try. I selected the right teacher.

I really recommend Rafael. He is a teacher, is not a person that knows only how to play. He is a person that also knows how to teach. He finds the way to explain things so I can understand them.

Recomiendo a Refael como profesor. No solo sabe tocar sino tambien sabe enseniar. Busca la forma de explicar las cosas y que estas sean entendibles para alguien que no sabe mucho de musica.

More than just taking a lesson

Some teacher is know how to give you a good lesson on what you choose for, but with Mr. Bo, you will learn beyond that. My 13 years old son is learning piano with Mr. Bo for a month now. He really enjoys the lessons. Moreover, Mr. Bo always give my son a good advise, not only about how to play piano, but also guide you to the right way to learn and he will tell you how to benefit the most out of learning. Thanks to you, Mr. Bo.
