Octavio M.

Houston, TX

About Octavio

I have been teaching voice for 7 years and my beginner students are already singing their own gigs. I have had only one advanced student in singing and in 2010 he got the zarzuela prize in the most prestigious opera competition in the world "Placido Domingo´s Operalia). I can teach in Spanish, English and Italian. and for voice I specialize in opera and mariachi music. In guitar as well as in Piano I only teach beginners.

*** Lesson Details ***
For voice I only take students from 15 years old and on. This is only because the children's voice is very delicate and I think it requires a teac
her who specializes in children for it is a big responsibility. Once the puberty voice change is gone: this is my field of expertise. with great discipline and a huge desire of success, a student could be singing in less than 6 months in a proper, healthy and beautiful way.

For guitar and for Piano, since it is for beginners, is very simple and fast, and as well as singing, if you do your homework, then the achievements will come faster than you think!!!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I need from students to provide a piano or a keyboard for voice Lessons and for Piano lessons. I would provide the music to be copied, or they can buy their own music. For guitar they have to have a classical guitar and I would bring mine so that we both can use a guitar.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in opera (for voice), but it is adaptable to any kind of singing. In guitar and Piano is only for beginners.

ATTENTION: I DO NOT TAKE CHILDREN FOR VOICE LESSONS!!!

Mr. Octavio knows how to motivate a child. My son gets easily distracted with telling stories, etc and Mr. Octavio is able to get him to focus so well. He has an excellent combination of firmness with motivation. Plus he really knows how to get my 8 year old to understand lessons. Highly recommend!

Paula L.

Houston, TX

About Paula

Paula is a passionate teacher with diverse musical styles who lives in Houston, TX. Paula has over 8 years of experience in music instruction. She primarily teaches piano and voice. Her students range as young as pre-school all the way to older adults. Paula was musically trained at very young age. At the age of 5 she already began singing in font of her church congregation. At the age of 7 she began taking piano lessons. Paula has entered in many music competitions such as NATS, GMA and all regions. She also received an Outstanding Student Award in Fine Art from McLennan Community College, wh
ere she received her Associate Degree in music. She later received a Bachelor Degree from Houston Baptist University in music and political science. Paula had also performed in many musical plays such as the “Fiddler on the Roof”, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”, “The Sound of Music”, and “The Magic Flute.” So whatever style or genre of music you are want to learn or developed Paula can help you.

*** Lesson Details ***
Paula’s music philosophy is anyone can play or sing as long as they practice and have the proper technique. Paula does not have a set curriculum for her students because she believes that each student is different and must set different goals. In the lessons, Paula’s first focus is to help the student establish his/her goals, and then find their strengths and weaknesses. She then tailors the lesson to achieve this goal by helping the student develop a good foundation through music theory, music technique, and sight singing/reading. Paula believes that no matter what style of music you want to play or sing, you should always have some basic classical training. Drawing from her personal experience, Paula strongly believes that classical training can help one be a better player or singer in any genre, whether classical, Broadway, pop or contemporary Christian music.

No matter what genre of music, no matter what age or skill level you are at let Paula help you achieved your musical goals.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Professional upright piano, iPad, and a CD/ iPhone/iPod player

*** Travel Equipment ***
Student should provided either a piano or keyboard and audio CD/iPhone player (only for vocal student)

*** Specialties ***
I am a classically trained musician, so I feel that in order for students to be successful in any type of singing or playing style they should have some basic classical training. I enjoy teaching children's music, contemporary Christian music, and pop.

Troy W.

Houston, TX

About Troy

Composer Troy W. graduated from the New England Conservatory, earning his Bachelors, Masters (cum laude) and Graduate Diploma while studying with mentor Malcolm Peyton. After spending a year studying with Lukas Foss in Boston, Mr. W. moved to Houston in 2001 where he continued graduate studies at Rice University's Shepherd School of Music.

During his time as a teacher with the Michael P. Hammond Preparatory Program at Rice University's Shepherd School of Music, Troy taught classes in music fundamentals and music theory for pre-college students. He has also served on the faculty of the Summ
er Institute for Piano teaching courses in Form & Analysis for pre-college students.

Troy also has maintained a private studio, tutoring and teaching private lessons in composition, ear training, voice, piano, literature, and history for over ten years. Students who have studied with him come from a wide range of backgrounds with different goals. Those who have continued with musical studies in college have consistently placed out of at least the first two semesters of music theory and achieved advanced placement in their chosen fields of study. Those who chose a different path continue to benefit from the education and training they received from taking music lessons.

*** Lesson Details ***
There is no "standard formula" to lessons. Each student has their own unique background, needs, and goals. Lessons tend to be somewhat casual but are structured in such a way as to meet the unique requirements of the student.

To accomplish your goals, there are a few requirements and basic expectations that the student and parent must meet.
The first is practice. Students are expected to practice daily for at least the length of their lesson time. This, above all else, is essential to progress. It is also expected that a parent will attend lessons for students who are too young to drive themselves here. It's important for a parent to guide the student's practice time (particularly for younger students) to ensure that the most is gained from it. This is why I ask that a parent observe lessons.
Each student or parent should bring to each lesson a notebook, pencils (with erasers). The notebook will be used to record notes about each lesson, homework, practice advice, etc. Pencils (not pens...nobody's perfect!) are used by composers to record their creations and performers to mark their music. Both of these essential practices are subject to changing thought and must be open to change. So no ink, please!

Performers: It is not necessary to know how to read music at the first lesson for beginners. However, learning to read is required for subsequent lessons and will be a large focus for all non-readers. Lessons are not learned "by ear." A certain amount of theory will be a part of every lesson just as technique and repertoire. Concerning repertoire, it will be selected based on the student's learning needs but also with their input. The main emphasis on performance lessons, however, will be technique and reading. Students should come to the first lesson prepared to discuss their background & goals and the plan of their course of study.
Note: Voice students must be at least 16 years of age.

Composers: Just as with performers, it is not necessary to know how to read music at the first lesson. However, learning to read is required for subsequent lessons. Many young composers have great ideas but can only hear them in their heads or play them on an instrument. Lessons will allow you to obtain the skills to write them down with greater speed, accuracy, and clarity. More advance students will also include exploring a wider range of harmonic languages, advanced notation, instrumentation, orchestration, and aural skills. Students should come to the first lesson with examples of their work, either written, notated, or recorded in a digital format. They should be prepared to discuss their background & goals and the plan of their course of study.

IMPORTANT NOTE: the studio space is also inhabited by two lovely cats. Do consider this when signing up for lessons.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Yamaha DGX-650 weighted 88 keys full sized keyboard
area for parents to sit and observe lessons.

*** Specialties ***
Main area is in classical music and media scoring with secondary focus on musical theatre vocal performance and composing/arranging.

The voice is very technical but yet very vaguely understood in terms of what one should do to obtain what needs to occur, in order to produce what is expected, and Troy understands how to interpret what is needed in order to produce what should occur.

Bella U.

Houston, TX

About Bella

I am a piano teacher with over 25 years of experience. I was hand-picked to began training at the early age of 6 through the Music School for Gifted Children in Russia. After 11 years of intensive training in piano performance and theory, I went on to complete my Bachelors degree at Music College, Russia. There I was classically trained in music education and accompaniment. Soon after that I began to pursue my love of teaching and taught students of all ages in a music school in Russia. I am currently a member of HMTA, MTNA, and TMTA teacher associations.

I have worked at the Suzuki Music S
chool of Houston since 2000, instructing students in piano, piano performance, and theory. My students perform at several musicales and recitals every year to demonstrate their skills and receive recognition for their hard work. I take pride in getting them ready for their debuts and encouraging their interest in different kinds of musical pieces and genres. Those interested in putting in the extra effort for competitions can be entered into those as well.

Teaching is my passion and I believe that children gain so much more than just the beautiful skill of tickling the ivories. Students of all ages gain confidence, self-esteem, and a good work ethic. Music is linked to better math grades, improved memory, and coordination in general. I love that my job is helping students achieve their goals. I enjoy watching them succeed and explore their talents in piano.I believe that music is a gift which you can give yourself at any age. It will expand your mind and fill your heart. It is a skill which you and your family will enjoy forever. Although many of the students I work with begin at age 5, I have seen adults of all ages succeed under my tutelage.

*** Lesson Details ***
Students can expect to have a tailored curriculum based on their age, experience, and preferences. They can also expect a teacher who is patient, understanding, and demands the very best from the students to ensure that they are getting the most out of their lessons!

I am trained in both Traditional and Suzuki methods and alternate between them based on what the student wants. I often start the students on sight-reading and picking up the song by ear before moving on to more complex pieces. You will see your improvement and progress in just a few weeks time!

Initially I will provide copies of the musical pieces but will give my recommendations for a more permanent book. Students should be equipped with a piano or keyboard both for lessons and practice between sessions.

Many students play piano in hopes of continuing with their instrument well into their young adult and adult lives. Thus they seek to put their talent on college admissions applications. Requests for references and assistance in recording tapes to send will happily be fulfilled with advance notice!

*** Travel Equipment ***
The students would need to possess a piano or keyboard at their place of residence.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize both in Traditional and Suzuki methods.
