Kate W.

San Antonio, TX

I've been teaching piano for over 11+ years. My teaching style is we go at the pace you want to go. I let the student tell me what their goals are, and we work around it.

My philosophy: everyone is their own person. No one is built the same!

About Kate

I graduated from UTSA in the Fall of 2008, with a Bachelor of Music with a Vocal and Piano Emphasis. I have been teaching private piano and voice for 11+ years. I am fun, energetic, and patient. It brings me such joy to be able to teach children something I am so passionate about!

*** Lesson Details ***
Students need to practice 15 minutes a day. They are required to complete everything that is assigned to them that week, and be prepared for their lessons for the following week. A beginner usually in 3-6 months should be familiar with reading the basic treble and bass clef staff, be famili
ar with dynamic markings, beginning to understand basic music theory, tempo and minimal sight reading. Voice students study basic vocal technique, and learning to sing properly.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I usually provide the books after the parents have paid for them. They should have their own instrument to work with.

*** Specialties ***
I use the Alfred method for piano.

Within minutes, I could tell that she was a very haopy person and that I would have no problem talking with her. She also challenged me to sing outside my range. I felt unsure but she encouraged me and I did okay. I can't wait for my next lesson.

Tim K.

Schertz, TX

I have taught beginning piano to students ranging from five to 80 years old. For my younger students I use the Faber Piano Adventures series. For my adult pupils I use the Alfred Adult Beginner course.

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.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano, classical and folk guitars
My home studio has glass doors through which one may observe the lesson.

2 guitars

Neil D.

Boerne, TX

* Finally, a comprehensive instrumental course for students of all ages and experience levels that includes:

- Information on brands, supplies, and guidance with professional organizations

- Weekly lessons to develop and improve skills with proper finger placement, dexterity, warm-up repertoire, dynamics, rhythmic meters, and more!

- Music theory (includes music history topics) with emphasis on technology and composition

- Maintenance and repair tips

- Advanced techniques: Pedal techniques, ornamentation, improvising, world music styles, etc.

- Chamber music (accompaniment) to prepare for public performances

About Neil

I am a music educator of ten years: I have taught both middle school band and choir to at-risk youth, as well as elementary music at a private Christian academy. My principal instrument is the saxophone (which I began playing in 1990), and I play many other instruments. As for my formal education: I received the Bachelor of Music Education degree in 2005 from Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey; and the Master of Music Education degree from the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA, 2010).

*** Lesson Details ***
My goal is to create life-long musicians...
I focus on the needs a
nd interests of my students, thereby representing all musical genres and including all cultures.
My lessons are structured into activities that incorporate various aspects of music appreciation:
Music theory, music history, music technology, performance practice, etc. (making such lessons comprehensive)

*** Studio Equipment ***
As a musician of 25 years, I believe it is the "musician that makes the instrument", and not the other way around. That is, I do not believe it is necessary to purchase the 'top' brand for your instrument in order to achieve the desired sound. Frequent practice builds skills and results in the desired tones people wish to hear.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I always bring my instrument, metronome, tuner, music stand and stand for my instrument, including lesson materials and supplies.
I expect students to obtain a metronome and to always have their music folder (with ALL music etc.) available for lessons.

*** Specialties ***
All genres, all styles & all cultures! I teach students of all ages--mostly at my home studio, but I also travel to students' homes, churches, and, as an alternative during the Summer only, I am willing to meet with students in the Practice Rooms in the Fine Arts Building at UTSA.

Robin M.

San Antonio, TX

I love teaching and playing piano! I graduated in 1973 from the Philadelphia College of Performing Arts with a degree in piano performance and music education. I expanded my skills with a master's degree in Kodaly, a music literacy method. I use the Robert Pace Piano Series and support it with standards from the classics and jazz. I strive to give my students a firm basic foundation so they can enjoy playing for many years to come.Come and join me in making the most of your musical experiences.

About Robin

I am an enthusiastic teacher who focuses on helping my students master the basics. I obtained a double degree in music and music education from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where I studied piano with Clement C. Petrillo. I furthered my education with a master's degree in music education from U.T.S.A.. My students will benefit from my knowledge of repertoire and technique to achieve their goals. I strive to find music my students will want to play that is accessible, but will also stretch their abilities. I have taught in both the public and private schools for over
thirty-five years and I know how important it is for students to feel both comfortable and challenged.

*** Lesson Details ***
I strive to maintain a comfortable, but professional, atmosphere in my home studio. I use the Robert Pace piano series as a base curriculum, but include other method books when supplements are needed. Beginners can expect to be playing with both hands, using basic chords to harmonize known tunes, and playing in three keys, C,F,and G, within three to six months. More advanced students can expect similar rates of progress depending on their musical goals and level of commitment.

*** Specialties ***
Kodaly method as applied to piano

Learning piano was a wonderful experience. I not only got to learn to play, but I also learned about the details of playing the piano. Not only for fun on a day to day basis, but also on a more serious note like playing at performance. I was amazed at how quickly I picked up the piano with Dustin's guidance. With his guidance, I discovered that playing the piano was fun and he made it easy to learn. I would recommend Dustin as a piano teacher to anyone.

I had always heard that finding the right piano teacher for your child was important, I never really understood that until my son began working with Mr. Dustin S. for piano lessons. My 10 yr. old had other piano teachers in the past that really didn't seem to listen or take time to understand our son's needs which in effect, seemed to cause my son to steadily lose interest in wanting to learn piano. Mr. Dustin S. took the time to listen to our past experiences, taking notes (literally) on what were the past concerns and future goals. He thoughtfully planned and adjusted his lessons to keep my son interested in practicing piano as well as in learning to read music. Mr. Dustin S. is very knowledgeable, and truly takes time to know his students.
