About Me

Music is something I have always been passionate about, growing up in various Christian music ministries and with a talented family. I learned my strengths and talents in music were gifts from God, with the intention of being shared and taught to others. I want others to feel the same sense of passion and fulfillment that music has given to me. My ideal, ultimate contribution to the world of music education is to inspire young musicians to passionately work together and within themselves to create beautiful, meaningful sounds.

I have an open mind about music, and listen to a broad spectrum of music, from Classical to 90's Punk Rock, Indie to Hip Hop, Contemporary Christian to Ska, Mainstream to Rock. I plan to use the music the students enjoy as a way to relate and learn important concepts.

I am 21 years old, a senior at Texas State University-San Marcos, pursuing a Bachelor of Music Studies with a Vocal Emphasis, and have sustained a 4.0 GPA. I have studied voice for seven semesters with Professor Ronald Ulen, a respected baritone who has performed in operas across the United States and throughout Europe. I am classified as a mezzo soprano, and have performed in various voice recitals. I have had the honor of being in the Texas State Chorale, under the direction of Dr. Joey Martin, and University Singers, under the direction of Dr. Jonathan Babcock. These are the two most prestigious choirs at Texas State University, and are audition-based only. I have also been a member of Women's Choir, under the direction of Dr. Lynn Brinckmeyer. In my junior year of high school, I was a member of the Texas All State Mixed Choir.

I took four semesters of piano techniques under Dr. Ezra Bartz. I have played and sang for various churches across San Antonio since I was 14 years old, and am currently a member of the Tongues of Fire Music Ministry at St. Paul's Catholic Church.

I have experience teaching individual voice lessons, piano lessons, choir sectionals, middle school and high school choirs, elementary music classes, and individual music theory tutoring.

*** Lesson Details ***
My main mission is to teach the universality of music. Music connects us mentally as a language we learn to read, write, play and sing. Anyone can learn to communicate in the language of music. I use the Kodaly method, along with individual discovery, to create meaningful experiences. Vocal students can expect to learn to sing in English, Spanish, Latin, Italian, German, and French.

The emotional universality is evident in the overwhelming feelings attached to different musical markers and characteristics. My goal is to show people how music can be a healthy and effective way of managing emotions. I hope to be a worthy mentor throughout each student's educational and musical journey. Not every technique will work for every student, so I incorporate different styles of learning in my lesson plans, to include visual, auditory and kinesthetic approaches.

I am a positive and caring person with a good sense of humor. However, I expect complete cooperation and commitment during lessons. I will work hard and dedicate myself to your education, if you promise and show me that you are willing to do the same. Both piano lessons and vocal lessons will begin with a series of warm ups to engage the body, exercise the muscles, and encourage good breathing and posture. I can provide repertoire for you if you would like, or you can bring in your own music to work on. All lessons will work on establishing a solid foundation, as well as providing direction for individual needs and issues. Some homework will be asked of the student, in order to make our short sessions more productive. Time is of the essence. Practicing on your own time is a MUST. Music is very much an athletic feat, and the muscles must be worked and trained every day for maximum results. Music theory lessons will contain some components of Aural instruction, as the two go hand in hand. I base my vocal instruction on helping everyone find and use their own unique, natural voice.

There are no quick fixes, but commitment and hard work can bring you success and achievement. No matter the obstacles of life, any person can be a musician. I am here to provide personal testimony to that! I look forward to making beautiful music with you!

Tracy H. San Antonio, TX

Subjects Taught

Music Performance, Music Theory, Piano

About Me

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. I have also been a certified Music Together teacher since 2011 (a music program for kids aged birth-5), and teach with the Treehouse Music Together center.

*** Lesson Details ***
Classical music and Music Theory are the main part of the curriculum I use to teach. I use different types of curriculum including the Music Tree, Alfred Methods, etc... based on students skill level and preferences.I do teach the Suzuki Method to older children and/or adults if it is a good match for the student.

I like to give students a well rounded repertoire so upon request, I teach contemporary music as well, this usually includes Disney, Pop, Christmas, Praise and Worship songs and anything else students want to learn.

I try to make sure my students are enjoying what they are learning and having fun while expanding their musical knowledge and becoming a more proficient musician.

*** Studio Equipment ***
There is an electric piano set up in a designated music room with a sitting area for parents

*** Specialties ***
I was instructed in the Suzuki Piano Method until I graduated high school. I used Suzuki exclusively for the first several years. Since 2002 I have also added Alfred's, Faber & Faber and other curriculum to match each students individual needs.

About Me

My name is Tim and I live in Schertz, Texas. I hold a BM and a BME from UTSA and an MM from Texas State. I also studied drama for 3 years at Trinity University. I have been a music teacher for 24 years. I have taught elementary music, secondary choir and college level music courses. I have performed in operas, musicals and plays in San Antonio and I have sung at Carnegie Hall in New York. I studied voice with Herald Stark and guitar with David Underwood. I have led a professional singing group and a professional dance troupe. I have composed choral music which has been performed in San Antonio and entered into international competitions. I have spent years learning techniques to help students sing in tune and learn how to read music. I have experience teaching students of all ages from 3 year olds to adults. I teach students from Northeast San Antonio, Selma, Schertz, Live Oak, Universal City, Cibolo, Bracken, Garden Ridge, Converse, Marion, Seguin and New Braunfels.

*** Lesson Details ***
For my younger guitar students, I use the Progressive Guitar Method for Young Beginners series. This book includes a CD to help the student practice at home. For my older guitar students I use a progressive guitar curriculum of my own creation.

For my voice students I use Pathways of Song, Hall Johnson Spirituals, 24 Italian Songs and Arias, Alfred's Folk Songs for Solo Singers, Carl Fisher's The Young Singer series as well as song materials based upon the student's personal interests, such as arts songs and Broadway show tunes.

For my piano students I use the Piano Adventures series by Nancy and Randall Faber and the Alfred Piano Series. Music reading, ear training and theory is part of my instruction. With daily practice you will see a noticeable improvement in musicianship, aural skills and music-reading ability.

I am also an experienced tutor. I have worked with students of all ages and with various learning differences. I have tutored students in reading, writing, math, social studies, ESL and test preparation.

Through online instruction, I am available around the clock and around the globe for tutoring and music lessons.

Neil D. Boerne, TX

Subjects Taught

Clarinet, Drum, Flute, Music Performance, Music Theory, Percussion, Piano, Saxophone, Trombone, Trumpet

About Me

I am a music educator of nine years: I have taught both middle school band and choir to at-risk youth, as well as elementary music at a private Christian academy. My principal instrument is the saxophone (which I began playing in 1990), and I play many other instruments. As for my formal education: I received the Bachelor of Music Education degree in 2005 from Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey; and the Master of Music Education degree from the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA, 2010).

*** Lesson Details ***
My goal is to create life-long musicians...
I focus on the needs and interests of my students, thereby representing all musical genres and including all cultures.
My lessons are structured into activities that incorporate various aspects of music appreciation:
Music theory, music history, music technology, performance practice, etc. (making such lessons comprehensive)

*** Studio Equipment ***
As a musician of over 24 years, I believe it is the "musician that makes the instrument", and not the other way around. That is, I do not believe it is necessary to purchase the 'top' brand for your instrument in order to achieve the desired sound. Frequent practice builds skills and results in the desired tones people wish to hear.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I always bring my instrument, metronome, tuner, music stand and stand for my instrument, including lesson materials and supplies.
I expect students to obtain a metronome and to always have their music folder (with ALL music etc.) available for lessons.

*** Specialties ***
All genres, all styles & all cultures! I teach students of all ages--mostly at my home studio, but I also travel to students' homes, churches, and, during the Summer only, I meet with students in the Practice Rooms in the Fine Arts Building at UTSA.
