Great teacher

My daughter has been taking flute lessons from Shannon for 2-3 years. She really enjoys her time with Shannon and has learned so much! Shannon does a wonderful job of creating chamber music groups with recitals, in which my daughter was able to take part - definitely nothing that would have been offered in her school at this level! We are very lucky to have found Shannon!

Robert M. Houston, TX

I enjoy sharing the necessary knowledge of music theory and history as it applies to all music forms. Luckily, i find teaching music theory through playing and improvising is best without having to be bore down with too much reading and text.

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.

I have taken lessons from Steve since the beginning of 2014. I took lessons when I was a little girl and had not played much since then. Steve has taken the time to get to know my capabilities, interests and reasons for coming back to the piano. Although he uses standard piano instruction books, he has been able to structure lessons and take home assignments that fit me. I especially like his focus on music theory, technique and how the notes and chords in the piece come together to create the piece. I have a busy schedule and Steve is organized and flexible when I am not able to come to class due to travel. He puts the onus on me to practice which is entirely appropriate for an adult coming back to piano. I would recommend Steve for instruction, particularly for self-motivated adults.
Troy W. Houston, TX

I have been teaching this subject for over 13 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. Theory lessons are usually taken in conjunction with performance lessons (an instrument or voice) so they can make practical application of what they learn in theory. Beginner students start with fundamentals of notation, and tonal harmony. Lessons for more advanced students will include form, analysis, modal, tonal, and extended tonal harmony, contemporary procedures, and more. Lessons are a minimum of 60 minutes once per week. Students should come to the first lesson prepared to discuss their background & goals and the plan of their course of study. Theory lessons are particularly good as extra support for classroom work.

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 :).
