Tim K.

Schertz, TX

I studied classical guitar at Trinity University under David Underwood. I taught classical guitar at Southside High School. I have had students score high rankings in UIL competitions.

About Tim (William)

My name is Tim and I live in Schertz, Texas. I hold a BM and a BME from UTSA and an MM from Texas State. I also studied drama for 3 years at Trinity University. I have been a music teacher for 26 years. I have taught elementary music, secondary choir and college level music courses. I have performed in operas, musicals and plays in San Antonio and I have sung at Carnegie Hall in New York. I studied voice with Herald Stark and guitar with David Underwood. I have led a professional singing group and a professional dance troupe. I have composed choral music which has been performed in San Anton
io and entered into international competitions. I have spent years learning techniques to help students sing in tune and learn how to read music. I have experience teaching students of all ages from 3 year olds to adults. I teach students from Northeast San Antonio, Selma, Schertz, Live Oak, Universal City, Cibolo, Bracken, Garden Ridge, Converse, Marion, Seguin and New Braunfels.

*** Lesson Details ***
For my younger guitar students, I use the Progressive Guitar Method for Young Beginners series. This book includes a CD to help the student practice at home. For my older guitar students I use a progressive guitar curriculum of my own creation.

For my voice students I use Pathways of Song, Hall Johnson Spirituals, 24 Italian Songs and Arias, Alfred's Folk Songs for Solo Singers, Carl Fisher's The Young Singer series as well as song materials based upon the student's personal interests, such as arts songs and Broadway show tunes.

For my piano students I use the Piano Adventures series by Nancy and Randall Faber and the Alfred Piano Series. Music reading, ear training and theory is part of my instruction. With daily practice you will see a noticeable improvement in musicianship, aural skills and music-reading ability.

I am also an experienced tutor. I have worked with students of all ages and with various learning differences. I have tutored students in reading, writing, math, social studies, ESL and test preparation.

Through online instruction, I am available around the clock and around the globe for tutoring and music lessons.

Christopher B.

San Antonio, TX

About Christopher

I've been a music instructor for over 8 years and have given thousands of lessons for guitar, bass, and piano. I have a great deal of experience with all age groups. I've taught children as young as 4 to adults in their 70's and always strive to adapt to each student to best suit their learning style so they can achieve success in learning a new instrument. I work many major styles including rock, blues, jazz, metal, latin, classical, and country. The best part of this job is being able to share what I love with others and watching them grow as musicians. What could be better?!

*** Lesson D
etails ***
I love tailoring my lessons to the individual student. I don't just show up with a lesson plan and do the same curriculum with everyone. I listen to feedback from the student and learn what music they like to play and listen to and work that into our lessons.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect piano, guitar, and bass students to all have their own instruments to practice on. I will travel with a guitar, an amplifier, and guitar effects myself (I teach many lessons about effects and how to use them).

*** Specialties ***
Rock, Classic Rock, Jazz, Latin, Bluegrass, Country - and I've worked in most other styles including Classical & Flamenco.

I'm familiar with many teaching methods including: Mel Bay, Hal Leonard, Alfred and most other major guitar and piano teaching curriculum

I've been taking lessons from Rick for over 1.5 years and have shown steady improvement thanks to him. He is always prepared and gears the lessons toward the style of music I enjoy playing. He is patient and keeps the lessons at a comfortable pace while also making sure to push me to progress my abilities.

I'm a mid 40's guy who's wanted to play guitar since I was a kid. After a failed attempt in my teens, I hadn't revisited it (unless air-guitar counts) until this year. Fortunately for me, through Take Lessons, I found Rick. He is so very patient, friendly and flexible. The one thing I most enjoy about our lessons is that it's like visiting with a friend for an hour each week - whether we talk about music theory, new guitars or just about our lives, he always is engaged and accessible.

I can't say enough about Rick, he is a very knowledgeable musician, he genuinely cares that you reach your goal and is a really, really pleasant person. If your dream is just to play some of your favorite songs, or to go on to be a professional musician - Rick is definitely who I would recommend.

First rate instructor - fabulous

I'm a 50 something music student who loves guitar but has no particular talent. Rick has been patient with me and his lessons have improved my playing after a short time. I'm playing songs that I would otherwise never attempt.
