Yana Giles has been the best piano teacher I have ever taken lessons from out of all 5 teachers I've had. She is patient, encouraging and motivational through every piece she assigns me. My appreciation for music grew an enormous amount after beginning lessons with her. My hand technique improved, as well as performance ability. I recommend her to anyone looking to learn the piano! Even if you have already learned the piano and wish to improve somehow, Yana will show you a new understanding of music that you never thought you could have.

Great teacher

My teacher is very knowledgeable, yet she is able to teach beginner music. She has not only taught me to read notes, she has told me a lot of history about the instrument and lots of music. I think she is the very best!!!!
Billy H. Arlington, TX

For beginners I will get them going on basics as fast as they can thru the 1st 3 or 4 books then we'll decide what to do next - takes a year or so.

For intermediates I specialize in teaching how to play like a pop musician - songwriter - rock band - country band - studio musician - jazz / blues basics....how to read and write chords and chord charts and how to play using chord charts.

About Billy

I teach my students how to understand how music is put together so they can learn even more on their own. I read, write, and play all styles and I focus on teaching the student fundamentals that work in all styles of music ....AND I get them going on the style they are interested in - pop, rock, country, folk, etc. I have spent my entire life in the music industry and I can show you how to use what I teach to apply to the real world. I have also been a successful songwriter and I can work with students to learn about song structure and song writing. I am also good at preparing students for college music classes. *** Lesson Details *** I like to break it down into small steps and accomplish them, then move on to the next. Each person learns differently and I am good at ...

Carl W. Fort Worth, TX

About Carl

As far back as I can remember I have always enjoyed performing music. I can remember during my elementary school years how I would play drums during church service. Some days I would sneak in my dad's closet to play his saxophone. I began learning how to play saxophone in middle school and by the time I was in high school I was learning piano, performing jazz, and composing music. I went on to get a Bachelor of Music at the University of North Texas. I have been performing professionally for over 18 years. I also have taught band for 11 years in Dallas ISD. I enjoy teaching and mentoring other up and coming musicians. It's a joy to see another world open up to them through music. Through my warm and positive personality and experience as a certified music teacher and music ...

In the three months I've taken lessons, I've had a great experience with Carl and his methods. Every lesson is different and interesting. And when I bring a question to class Carl develops that into a lesson, which keeps the material even more interesting. I'm very happy with the results I'm seeing and would recommend Carl to any aspiring musician.

I'm a more "Senior" student who decided that learning the saxophone needed to be at the top of my "Bucket List". I recognize adult students can be particularly challenging because they're a bit more rigid in what they want. Carl is the perfect instructor for all ages. First he's extremely knowledgeable, making you confident he's leading you down the right path. He's has so much diversity in both instruments and styles that he's able to accommodate anyone. With this, he has been able to tailor lessons, mixing the basics with my desire to learn popular jazz tunes. He's picked up on the fact that I'm an engineer and have to understand everything I'm taught, so he's included music theory that makes the lessons, steps, and songs take on a more complete meaning (and improving retention). He's extremely patient and encouraging, as some of my lessons are after very long and tough work days; yet, he knows how to challenge you to ensure continued progress. It's coming up on a year that he's been my instructor and he’s made me so confident I'll stick with playing, that I upgraded to a professional instrument. Superb instructor.

I've been playing piano by ear since about 2 years old, so taking piano lessons was always a challenge for me because I'd often had teachers who I felt didn't understand how to balance my musical ability to play by ear with music theory. I started taking lessons from Carl about 2 years ago in hopes to develop my piano skills, and I am very excited with the progress I've been able to make in such a short period of time! Throughout my lessons, Carl has been nothing but patient and encouraging. He is very knowledgeable whenever I have questions. Carl also has helped me gain a better appreciation of musical theory. As a result of having lessons with him, I have been able to play piano at various Sunday morning worship services with confidence, something I was NEVER able to bring myself to do before! I highly recommend taking lessons from Carl. He's a great teacher with tons of experience and talent!
Jordan D. Grapevine, TX

I have played piano for rock bands and worship ensembles for several years. I was also required to take 4 semesters of Functional Piano in college and prove myself a proficient pianist to graduate. I also use piano on a daily basis for arranging, composing, and teaching.

About Jordan

12 years ago, I picked up a guitar and began my life-long pursuit of music. This pursuit has led me in a wide variety of directions. Today, I am the worship leader for Living Life Church, a private guitar instructor, a freelance producer, film-composer, performing musician and, of course, instructor! I have a passion for a wide variety of styles of music. For several years, I was the lead guitarist, singer, and songwriter for multiple independent rock bands, the most notable being an indie psychedelic band called Tod The Fox. I have led worship for Grace Fellowship UMC, Brazos Pointe Church, Bear Creek Community Church, The Cornerstone College Ministry at UTA, the BSM at UTA, Christ Is King Church, and FUMC Allen in varying capacities. At UTA, I studied Jazz and Classical guitar under

I first picked up a guitar roughly 50 years ago and tried to teach myself how to play with a chord book. I learned a lot of chords and songs from sheet music, and learned to do a fair job of playing by ear. But I was never really satisfied, and only picked up my guitar occasionally over the past 30 years. I retired recently and decided I wanted to learn to play the correct way. I did an online search for teachers in my area and found Jordan who lives close by. Jordan asked what my interest was, and I told him I wanted to learn the fundamentals and build from there. We started off with a song I was interested in, and then began working on the basics of music theory, reading and identifying notes on sheet music, and learning to play all the different scales while identifying and calling out the notes. I have a long way to go, and my older hands don't always cooperate like I want them to; but I'm also having the time of my life. I look forward to my weekly lessons and enjoy the time I spend with Jordan.

I purposely waited to review Jordan until almost a full semester of lessons. My husband and I wanted to see how his personality would 'play out' over our time knowing him, how our daughter would respond to learning at such a young age (5), and how much progress either of them would make with one another. So to answer concern #1: I had my concerns that we would see progress with Jordan't laid-back style but he has been an answer to our prayers. He has had much going on personally with work and a move and yet he stayed steadfast and awesome through it all! Regarding concern #2: in spite of the minimalist attention span of a 5 year old, Jordan has managed to engage our daughter in a realistic fashion and she has grown to eagerly look forward to practicing what she has learned - IN A SEMESTER! - and as a piano player myself, I could not be more pleased with her progress thus far. Concern #3: Jordan seems to have captured the tricky concept of accountability for a 5 year old and our daughter actually respects Mr. Jordan. We have been so pleased and look forward to continuing our lessons.

Marilyn J. Fort Worth, TX

I teach classical piano. I include theory and ear training with piano lessons. I use some music games and play activity for young students. I have some materials that I provide but books are purchased by the parents.

About Marilyn

Music is soothing to the soul. It can calm us when anxious. It can teach young children focus, concentration and improve fine motor skills. I feel classical piano is a basic foundation to learn many instruments and types of music. I include theory and ear training with piano lessons. My goal is to try and turn on the student's love for music so that he or she wants to spend time at the piano at home improving skills.
