About Nick

Get to know me with free lessons first, email me for information!

I am a 25 year old, energetic teacher of almost any instrument, specially trumpet. I can teach in any style, and will not let you learn anything incorrectly! Lessons will be flexible and fun. I am willing to work with your schedule and will ensure that your lessons are worth it. I taught last year in the Fort Worth Independent School District as an assistant band director. I gave this up to further my education at UNT for my masters in Jazz Studies.

*** Lesson Details ***
Welcome to a friendly lesson. I prefer to cal
l a lesson an assisted practice session. Simply put we play a PERFECT practice session together. I want to ensure that I teach you how to practice correctly so that every other time you touch your instrument, you are progressing to success! Therefore instead of teaching you this strange foreign language of music, I am assisting you in learning it yourself.

*** Travel Equipment ***
My Trumpet.
Their Instrument + required music.

*** Specialties ***
My primary instrument is Trumpet. I am certified to teach all band instruments (woodwinds, brass, percussion). I have chosen the instruments that I am most knowledgeable about. I have spent most my time with classical trumpet pieces, with the last 2 years focused on transitioning to Jazz trumpet.

Lisa C.

Rockwall, TX

beginner to intermediate
chord/note approach

About Lisa

I have been a music teacher and private lesson instructor for the past 17 years. I have a bachelor of science degree in Music Education and hold a teaching certificate for all-level Music Education. In my private studio I have taught students from 3-70 and have enjoyed them all! In addition to teaching music I also serve as the Music Minister for my church. Students coming to me can expect a tremendous amount of experience as well as a committed, honest and caring teacher.

*** Lesson Details ***
For beginning piano students I like to use the Alfred series, supplemented, of course, with
songs/styles of music that interest the student.

Guitar, clarinet, and oboe students can expect to begin with the Essential Elements series as a primer and introduction. I've had a lot of success with these books.

Voice students are a bit different in that I don't use a specific method to instruct. I have many books that I draw from when teaching voice due to the unique nature of the individual. Depending on the style of music, from classical to jazz/pop, I have music that will teach proper breath support, vowel placement and tone.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Home studio: converted dining room with 3 guitars, young percussion instruments, upright piano and f/w keyboard. Seating available for parents.
Music ministry at First Christian Church in Terrell. Access to choir room with upright piano. Seating available for parents.

*** Specialties ***
Degree in all-level music education with specialty in voice.

My first lesson was very informative. I learned how to tune the guitar, 2 chords, and played a song all in 30 min. I now have confidence that I can learn to play the guitar.
Thank you so much.

I've been teaching Guitar for 6 years and my students have started playing full songs in a very short period of time. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play cords and as time goes on you'll be able to play amazing solos. I specialize in acoustic guitar for Kids. I typically use the world recognized Alfred's system in conjunction with my method individually customized for each student, I love working with beginner students to help them have a solid foundation and have lots of fun.
