Laura R.

Houston, TX

About Laura

I am a mezzo soprano with a bachelor and masters of music degree in vocal performance from the University of Houston. I am pursuing a career in opera while teaching private voice and piano lessons,
During my voice lessons I like to focus on developing the student's voice through a classical approach. By forming a strong foundation in healthy singing the student will be able to sing in various genres without strain to his/her voice.
In my piano lessons I use the series of method books, Piano Adventures, developed by Nancy and Randall Faber. Through these instructions the student will learn
to read music as well as establish a proficiency for playing the piano.

*** Lesson Details ***
If you take lessons from me we will have fun while working hard. I develop my lessons around what I feel the student needs on that particular day.
In a voice lesson we might spend the entire time on technique exercises to strengthen the voice. We might also work on several songs with an emphasis on interpretation.
In regards my piano lessons, I generally stick to the curriculum, but will take the time to focus on the individual needs of the student.
I expect my students to practice at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days a week. Everyone learns at a different rate, but if the student practices regularly, he/she will see progress within a few months.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have an upright piano in my studio as well as several music books. I expect my students to bring their music as well as their assignment book to every lesson.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in a classical technique when it comes to teaching voice. I focus on proper breath support and a relaxed open larynx to produce a free, beautiful sound. I believe a classical foundation can be applied to any musical genre, with the result that you are singing in a healthy manner that will not damage your vocal chords, thus allowing for a longer singing career.

Hsiao-Lan W.

Houston, TX

About Hsiao-Lan

I have been playing the piano since age 3 and violin since age 8. Besides regularly performing, teaching has been one of the most important things in my life. For more than 19 years, I have taught piano, violin, composition, theory, and music technology to music lovers of all ages. My students have gone on to win prizes both locally and nationally. I enjoy sharing with students my love for music in a nurturing atmosphere.

*** Lesson Details ***
Note-reading, technique, theory, improvisation, standard and not-so-standard pieces. Occasionally, we also include pop, jazz, blues, and musical th
eater works in our lessons. I have been described by my students as funny, strict, nice, and patient. I am not afraid to tell my students they need to step up the effort if I see potential in them to do well. I also know when to give them the support when they feel frustrated. Students' interests will be taken into consideration for the pieces chosen and the style of lessons given. Teaching has always been my passion. I get to know the personality of my students so we can work together to bring out the musical talent in each of them. Student recital is held at least once every year. I encourage all students to participate in the recital.

*** Studio Equipment ***
One Yamaha upright piano and one Yamaha grand piano (for advanced students)

Dedicated chair for parents who choose to wait or observe during the lesson.

*** Travel Equipment ***

*** Specialties ***
I am a classical musician by training, although I do play other styles as well.

Hsiao-Lan started teaching my 3 year old. She has incredible patience and shows the kids how much fun you can have while playing the piano. My daughter loved her and was always looking forward to her piano classes. I would highly recommend this teacher to anyone who is looking for their kids to have fun while they learn to play the piano. Unfortunately, we were not able to continue the classes but in a near future i would love for her to teach my daughter once again. Hsiao-Lan truly has a gift in teaching young children.

wonderful teacher

I asked my 10 year old son what rating I should give Dr. Wang and he said "5 stars". She is very patient and friendly when teaching my son who is a bit shy. She has chosen songs that are fun that he enjoys playing, and I never hear a complaint about going to lessons. She is helpful with all aspects of learning to play the piano, and I have noticed his playing becoming more personal rather than simply following notes.

nice and patient

The teacher is nice and patient, My daughter just turned 4 when she first started the lesson. I was afraid she was going to find this difficult and boring. But instead she has enjoyed each lesson and has made surprising progress. The lesson is talored to her short attention span, mixed with games and fun motivation. We have enjoyed the lessons.

About Monique

I have a degree in Music (Vocal Performance) and Psychology from Mt. St. Mary's College in Los Angeles, Ca. After taking a break to have 5 of my own children, I now teach children and adults how to make the most out of their voice. I still perform on stage locally. I just finished the role of "Domina" in "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum." Other recent roles include "The Witch" in "Big Fish the Musical", "Kala" in "Tarzan the Stage Musical" and just before that "Judy" in "9 to 5 the musical". I have been directing choir and also performing solos for the last 20 years in my loc
al church. I currently have 50 plus private students ages 4-53! My area of concentration is musical theater, but I can teach all genres.

*** Lesson Details ***
During a typical lesson we cover relaxation and practice proper breathing, breath control, vocalization techniques, pronunciation and finally application of technique to approved song of choice.
If you love to sing, or have always wanted to learn sing, or improve your singing, or even get ready for that all important audition....then lets get started today! Remember, "as long as we live there is never enough singing"! Don't wait!

I am easy going and I want you to feel comfortable and at ease, but we do need to focus & can have fun doing it.

(not sticking to one particular publishers materials). I have done (& continue to do) extensive research into materials available for
Piano and supplement with my own, to utilize the best out there for "YOU" for the best possible progress. While ensuring an extremely well-rounded musical education, so you can progress at the best possible rate. Since each student's potential is different, each will progress differently. This is also determined by your dedication to daily practice (the more you practice, the quicker you will progress & the more accomplished you will become). This is a 'Team Effort'; I give the guidance & tools, and you practice, utilize & learn these tools, & off we go! The sky is the limit!!! :-D

I started classes March 2015 and can honestly say Bo is an excellent instructor. He is very patient especially with someone who had no experience. He has a diverse range of taste in music so if you don't want to pay classical he can teach you the blues, jazz, rock, etc. I would definitely recommend this instructor for anyone from no experience to experience.

Bo is very helpful and patient. He is well versed in a number of different styles, including classical, jazz, country, etc. He offers many useful tips and procedures based on his many years of experience. He adapts his teaching style to the needs of the student. I have made huge advancements in the 4 months that I have been taking lesson. I'm excited to see what the future holds. Highly recommended.

Mr. Bo was incredible. Hes patient, kind, funny, and teaches in a way you can really grab onto. He has really inspired me to be better at the piano than i would be able to be. (Im startling later in life at 33)

My lesson was only an hour but he stuck around much longer just talking, sharing music stories, and laughing with my family. He left my house leaving me inspired and motivated.

I cant imagine a better person to teach you or your child the piano.
