Marcus R. Austin, TX

I know the inner workings of Ableton and Logic very well and can help students start making music with this software in no time! Generally speaking, I give students studying music recording a small homework assignment each week that illustrates a particular facet of engineering/working with the software. I also specialize in home recording and can teach students how to make even the smallest setups sound huge!

About Marcus

I have been playing music since I was about 13 years old. I initially started out on guitar but I quickly picked up mandolin, banjo, and ukulele thanks to the great theoretical tools I'd learned from my first teacher! I started studying alto saxophone around the same time I picked up guitar and began extensively studying violin a few years later. I quickly began writing songs and at 15, I recorded my first album of original material with production help from Grammy award winning producer/guitarist Joe Reyes. Joe and I would go on to make four other records together and I would wind up doing string arrangements for one of his albums as well. While still in high school, I began playing with a number of bands in my hometown of San Antonio, Texas as well as a few groups in Austin, ...

Marcus is great! I have been working with him for over three months. I am 37 and did not consider myself to be a musician at all when I started working with Marcus. I set a personal goal to learn to play something, and I can do that now. Marcus is friendly, communicates well, adapts to my learning style and pace, and has been really patient in helping me learn the basics.

He has been super-flexible with scheduling. I was a little apprehensive about going to a stranger's home, but it's not weird at all. His place is comfortable and inviting.

Excellent instructor-Highly recommended

Marcus has been an excellent instructor. He is friendly, patient, and professional. He does a great job of explaining concepts. If I need to reschedule a lesson he is always willing to work with whatever times are best for me.

He is very knowledgeable about different music styles and bands.

At our first lesson, he asked if I had any music I was specifically interested in learning. I appreciated his focus on making the lessons more personal instead of just following the instruction book.

Amazing Teacher!

I started taking lessons with Alex after previously taking them with a different teacher. It turns out that my technique was flawed and Alex was quick to correct it. After working with him for just a few lessons, I was already seeing improvement. Alex is very patient and helpful. I never feel embarrassed to play in front of him as I did with my previous teacher. I definitely recommend Alex!

The Perfect Teacher!

Alex got me really into the passion of music, all the while fulfilling my desire to really learn the guitar. He approaches every lesson with complete patience and guidance. I am now able to learn songs on my own, understand the theory behind chord changes and scales, and I find the beauty in knowing what music really is!

I finally understood music!

Alex helped me reach my goals as both a guitarist and composer. He took me from having no idea about how scales are made and their use. I now play lead guitar in a rock band and I actually understand what I'm doing on stage and in the industry.

Richard was a great teacher! I am an adult student who had two goals - learn to play the piano and make a marriage proposal to my girlfriend. My only musical experience was playing trombone in band during middle school. Richard helped me jog my memory about learning the piano by providing simple assignments through the "A Dozen a Day" book series.

What I really liked about Richard is that he tries to teach you a little bit of music theory so that you can understand what each particular scale or exercise is trying teach you about music. Why is that useful? It helps to take a little break every once in awhile to freestyle. Richard's tips in music theory allowed you to try to put your own little spin in each song.

Richard is also very patient and wants the student to set clear goals for themselves so that we could work towards the goals together. He is also very laid back, but will definitely let you know when you're off. Whether you're off beat by just a little bit or whether your supposed to be piano/forte, he'll make sure you get it the next go around.

After 6-8 months of 30 minute lessons once a week, I was able to learn a few simple children songs, a few pop songs, a video game theme, and play Bob Dylan's "To Make You Feel My Love" for my girlfriend for the proposal (she said yes!).

So far, I couldn't be happier with my lessons. I am 23 and have always wanted to learn to play violin. Richard's patience and knowledge is helping me progress the way I hoped I would. I highly recommend him and look forward to our next lesson!

Richard is very cool. He is very nice and easy to work with. His knowledge of the piano and of music theory are exceptional and his ability to explain them to a beginner is incredible. I have learned so much in only 3 or 4 sessions and have already scheduled 4 more. I am so glad I found Richard on TakeLessons!! I would absolutely recommend him to an adult or to a child. He's the best!!!
Aaron P. Austin, TX

I have experience playing in the studio. I also have home recording experience. I can offer drum tuning tips, playing guidance, how to record on your own, and getting familiar with Cubase (music recording software). I can also help with mic placement and EQ settings.

About Aaron

I was an engineering tutor at University of Texas at Austin from 2006-2009. I graduated from UT with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering in 2009. I am very familiar with the UT engineering courses (from the beginning to the end). While I was at UT, I also studied jazz drumming with Brannen Temple. I have been playing professionally for over ten years with lots of different bands. Teaching and playing music are the most gratifying things for me. But I also like to teach math! I have been teaching high school math, physics, and music theory at Premier High School of North Austin for five years (2009-2014). I am a certified teacher by the state of Texas.
