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.

Felipe G. San Antonio, TX

Subjects Taught

Bass Guitar, Classical Guitar, Drum, Guitar, Mandolin, Music Performance, Music Theory, Piano, Songwriting, Ukulele

About Me

Hi! My name is Felipe and I am a multi-instrumentalist who loves helping others learn how to play music and have fun while doing it. I received my Bachelors in Music from the University of North Texas where I specialized in Music Theory and Classical Guitar. I am currently pursuing my Master's degree at Texas State University.

l began playing music in High School when I taught myself how to play drums and guitar by playing along with CD's of my favorite bands. Since then, I have played in many garage bands and pursued an education in music.

My teaching style is very laid-back, yet can be very intense for student who are ready to get to the next level. I understand that all students, no matter what age, are different. I don't expect everyone to learn music my way but help to put music in terms that the student understands and feels comfortable with. I understand that some people learn things differently and try my hardest to make my lessons fit the students individual style. I don't shout chords at the students and expect them to just know them. I like to teach multiple versions of the same chords and work with the student to figure out which works best with them.

*** Lesson Details ***
The lesson pace will follow the pace you set. Everyone is different and has their own goals when it comes to learning an instrument. I try to create an environment where the student feels free to express themselves anyway they want. I listen to the student and try to introduce new ideas to them that they can use to improve their playing. In our lessons, you would set the goals and we will have a ton of fun along the way.

Examples of method books we would use for our lessons include:

Guitar: Alfred's Kid's Guitar Course Complete, Alfred
Guitar Method Books 1, 2, & 3, Hal Leonard
Open Chords Guitar Method Supplement, Hal Leonard
Music Theory Guitar Method Supplement, Hal Leonard

Classical Guitar: Pumping Nylon, Alfred
Introduction to Classical Guitar, TerryMuska.com

Bass: Bass Method Books 1, 2, & 3, Hal Leonard
Music Theory Bass Method Supplement, Hal Leonard

Drums: The Visual Drumset Method, Hal Leonard
Kid's Drumset Course, Alfred
Drum Lessons for Kids of All Ages, Mel Bay
Basics in Rhythm, Meredith Music Publications
Alfred's Drum Method Complete, Alfred

*** Studio Equipment ***
During lessons, I use my iPad that has internet access that allows us to look up any song your heart desires.

Drums: Drums students play on my 5-piece Ludwig drumset with 7 cymbals.

Guitar: Students are encouraged to bring their own guitar. I have an amp for students with electric guitars.

Bass: Students are encouraged to bring their own bass and amp.

Mandolin: Students are encouraged to bring their own mandolin.

Ukulele: Students are encouraged to bring their own ukulele.

*** Travel Equipment ***
For In-Home lessons, I travel with acoustic instruments.
I also bring my iPad with Wi-Fi so that we can look up songs when you want to learn them.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in music theory and applying it to your instrument. I want to make learning and understanding music as easy as possible. I can teach you to play in many different styles and help you learn how to approach learning new songs. I've learned that many people can play little bits of songs, but have trouble putting together full songs. I want to help people learn how to put together full songs and transition from one section to the next.

I also have experience with very young children as young as 4 years old, as well as experience with special needs students, both adult and child.

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 eight 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 23 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. Example: Compare instrument brands to cars: Would you start a young driver on a Cadillac, Lexus, Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Porsche, let alone a Ferrari or Lamborghini just because you can afford it and you believe this will make them happy? No, novice musicians will bump, scratch, bang and even drop their instrument...better to start them off with a Chevy, Buick, Ford or maybe a Chrysler. Frequent practice builds skills and results in the desired tones people wish to hear; therefore, if one considers themselves to already be a decent musician, then if they are 'worth their salt' then they should be able to make any instrument sound great.

*** 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 I meet with students in the Practice Rooms in the Fine Arts Building at UTSA.
