Rob B. Austin, TX

About Rob

I have been playing guitar since August 1992. I cut my teeth on the alternative music that was popular at the time (Pearl Jam, Smashing Pumpkins, Soundgarden, Nirvana) but soon began to focus on earlier movements, specifically the playing styles and mindsets of Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, and Eric Clapton. I formed a band in 1996 and began gigging in Austin and throughout Texas. During this time, I immersed myself in jazz and did everything I could to bring the sonic palettes of Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, and Miles Davis into my playing, even taking up saxophone and piano in order to better understand what they were doing. I eventually moved back to my home town of Lubbock, where I graduated from Texas Tech University with a BA in English with a minor in Music, having played guitar ...

I learned a lot in a short amount of time

Rob is an incredible guitar player who also has the ability to teach others what he knows. He taught me exactly what I requested and then some... in a very short period of time. I'd highly recommend Rob to anyone wanting to learn to play or simply needing to improve. He's great.

James C. Austin, TX

If you're looking to for a traditional, classical piano instructor, I am not the man for the job. However, I meet more people who want to learn how to play their favorite pop songs than Bach. They would rather be able to play by ear, transpose, understand, & create music than follow a 3 page score note for note. Don't get me wrong, reading music is a valuable skill, & I teach it, but I focus on understanding, interpreting, & personalizing music rather than mindless duplication. I spent years in college learning music theory & analyzing sheet music, but everything changed when I finally discovered how to connect theory to actual application. Similar to the way training wheels help you learn to ride a bike, the tools & methods I use make it easy to get started & grow surprisingly fast! They allow us to simplify complex ideas or even difficult songs into something even a beginner can play understand & play!

About James

I have been performing, recording, and teaching music for the past five years. After getting a degree in music theory, I began playing with a band full time. In addition to playing all around Austin, I have traveled to places like Seattle, Nashville, and Waikiki to play shows, record, and interview with with my band on live radio. Songs from our album were played on Austin's own KGSR. We also played on Fox 7's morning show, Good Day Austin. I enjoy playing and teaching a variety of instruments and a variety of genres. To me, understanding music is key to unlocking your full potential for artistic expression. When I teach, I incorporate both what I learned in school and on stage. *** Lesson Details *** My goal is not to teach my students how to play a few cool songs on their ...

James is an excellent instructor! As a beginner student, he worked with me to pin down my goals and tailored the lessons to fit me personally. He's great at many different instruments beyond piano, and this expertise allows him to explain music beyond just the notes on the page. He really helped me enjoy the lessons and feel like I've made great progress despite being a novice.

We are very pleased with his progress so far.

Joshua started piano lessons with James in May, 2013. He has already learned to play numerous songs, and he has learned a great deal about different keys and chords in each key. James is very patient and utilizes every minute of our 30 minute lesson to cover as much as possible. Joshua likes and respects James a lot and looks forward to his piano lesson every week. Thank you James for being a great teacher!

Guitar · In studio
I am a retired faculty/staff member of The University of Texas at Austin with degrees in education. An 8th grade teacher diagnosed me to be musically challenged, and I was told not to make an effort to learn music. After retiring I decided to get a guitar and try to learn something about music. I had been trying to learn how to play on my own, but I soon realized that I needed a teacher. The first teacher I tried could not answer my questions, and inspire progress. Aimee demonstrated a very high excellence in teaching proficiency in the first lesson. While in her studio I observed her teaching young students, and it was obvious to me that she could teach both young and older students equally well. Have confidence that you can learn music with Aimee's guidance.

I'm a new student to Aimee, but have played guitar for years. My goal is to learn some music theory, understand chord progressions and positions, improve technique, and learn how to learn songs: how to break them down into chunks, so it's not overwhelming. It's already clear that she and I are going down that path. Best of all, she is patient, which should be incredibly important to any student.

My nine year old daughter has been taking piano lessons from Aimee for nearly three years. I really like Aimee's approach. For beginner students, she uses structured lessons teaching the all important fundamentals. As my daughter advances, Aimee continues to stress theses fundamentals combined with tailor-made lessons drawing from my daughter's musical interests. Plus, her strong communication skills go beyond from behind the piano. Her administration of her services make it a breeze to arrange lessons, make up lessons, and the like. Lastly, Aimee is just a down right cool lady, who clearly loves music and enjoys teaching what she loves. Thanks, Aimee!

I believe that Gfire do fire herself in the music and do appreciate all the times she took to teach my little girl the piano lesson. I cannot wait for me to see her able to both play and read music. She will, and I will say thanks to Mrs. Gfire. Everything happen for reason in life.

Ryan has been teaching me classical piano for about a month now, and I couldn't be happier with his teaching style. I'm an intermediate student, who took more than 20 years off, and had forgotten most of my theory lessons. Ryan is patient, professional, and very knowledgeable. Ryan makes it possible for my brain to actually understand theory.

I highly recommend Ryan. He's the type of piano teacher who is there to help and not just earn a paycheck.

Thank you, Ryan, for making it possible for me to like piano lessons again.

A Closer Look at Music in Oklahoma City

By Beverly M. - Oklahoma City Piano Teacher

I’ve lived in some interesting places in my life — Paraguay, South America: Roswell, New Mexico; and Scottsdale, Arizona - just to name a few. I can tell you a lot about Paraguay and Roswell, because I spent long periods of time in each of those places. But in the 8 ½ years I have lived and taught piano lessons in El Reno, Oklahoma, I had no idea until today that there was a famous musician from this sleepy little town.

Surprisingly, there is a famous musician from my little town—and a very good one at that! Sam Rivers is a jazz musician and composer who performs on soprano and tenor saxophones, bass clarinet, flute, harmonica and piano. He was born in 1923, currently resides in Orlando, FL, and performs regularly with his orchestra ...
