Robert M.

Fort Worth, TX

About Robert

I am a Music EC-12 Certified Educator with a degree from The University of St. Thomas, working on my Masters of Music Education from Texas Christian University of which I am on full scholarship as the Graduate Music Education Assistant. I am also teaching at the All Saints Catholic School as the youth choral director, bringing on the development of future music programs, ensembles, and curriculum at this growing institution.
My previous career role was in General Music for Stafford Elementary School in Stafford Municipal School District from 2011-2015. My education experience covers many
schools and programs in the Houston area, including various HISD schools as well as working for the University of St. Thomas Music Preparatory school as vocal, ukulele, bass guitar, music history/theory, and piano instructor. In Fort Worth, I have already been part of several music opportunities such as doing contract work for the Cool Cats Studio and Music Junkie Studio in addition to holding a summer music camp at All Saints Catholic school.
My background in music is mostly vocal, working with choirs and ensembles my entire life. I have also spread my abilities to work with Bass Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Piano, ukulele, and voice. I have many experiences with different genres such as American Folk Music, Jazz (Early to Fusion), and contemporary Rock/Pop, World Music, Christian/Worship/Catholic Liturgy, Rn'B, and Country music.
As an Music Educator, I have the strengths of being a distinguished musician and Professional educator which provides me with advanced knowledge in my field of study and interest, teaching for every age group from pre-school to Adult as well as influencing the fun, creativity, and expression of music no matter what the instrument.

*** Lesson Details ***
The music lessons will consist of a concise and strong education of their instrument as well as essential theory and history. I develop individual lesson plans for each student and subject, working on formative goals and objectives to work towards for every lesson and throughout the year. I look forward to being able to help students accomplish and enjoy their instrument, utilizing their interests and genres with a variety of texts and literature at many levels, looking to always expand my own collection to meet the needs of the students. I am comfortable with providing digital and paper materials as well as providing recordings and video studying resources with YouTube. I know in my heart and mind that I have something to offer to any student at any level in my studio, and, I am equally as passionate about providing an honest atmosphere for evaluation and positive criticism. With every lesson I always encourage brief reflection over the practice, study, and instruction, responding to every critical juncture that comes along the way. Being a certified educator and music instructor, I know that respect, understanding, honesty, human emotion, communication, and professionalism are the most critical components of a healthy Teacher-Student relationship.

Over 1200 Lessons taught with Takelessons.com since 2010

*** Studio and Resources ***
I have the necessary tools to operate in and out of my studio. Within my workplace I always have my electric keyboard, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass guitar, ukulele, music library, printer/scanner, recording equipment, full sound system with mixer amp, guitar amp, microphone and stand, tuner, music stands, iPad stand, and comfortable space and seating. I also have expanded my studio capabilities that is an entirely digitized database and curriculum. Starting in August 2015, I will also be able to provide lessons out of the Music Department of Texas Christian University.
I expect for the students to provide their own instrument so that they are able to practice at home. I operate on MAC OS and IPad systems that maximize the technological uses of my in home studio.
Be prepared to learn more than you ever anticipated as I provide many resources. I also push for supplemental music instruction within the lessons, adding basic training and music learning skills needed for accompaniment instruments such as the acoustic guitar, ukulele, and piano which allow for students to have a stronger understanding of their music.

I don't have much to compare to since this is the first teacher I have ever had on this subject matter. What I can tell you is Robert for exceeded any expectations I had for a music teacher. He is effective and can tackle individual challenges from unique perspectives that will help you overcome you hindrances all while being very personable. I received Sheet music, training CD's and training documentation. Additionally I received recordings of each lesson which I you will not believe how helpful that is, it's like have the lesson all over again.

Robert takes the approach of an professional educator with high expectations of his students, if you truly want to improve in the realm of music, singing or otherwise, you will improve with him. He wont have it any other way!

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 ot
her 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 performer, I understand how to meet the social and educational needs of each music student. I am well versed at solving problems and helping students thrive and reach their full potential. I think that I do this best by personalizing the instruction experience for each unique situation. I love to encourage students and help them discover the music in them.

*** Lesson Details ***
Like me, students can expect to enjoy the process. Students will discover that I am very encouraging during lessons. I keep everything upbeat and positive. I will help you come up with goals musically. I am very patient, all while coaching you so that you get positive results.

Patrick T.

Denton, TX

About Patrick

Having studied music for just over ten years, I am passionate about teaching others to better experience and understand music. I believe that interaction with the arts is an invaluable part of a persons education and social being. Beyond all of the technicalities of music education, it is also invaluable for one to be able to enjoy and appreciate the music that they spend so much time studying. Music has played a huge role in the development of my life and I absolutely enjoy sharing that experience with others.

As for me, I am a student in the College of Music at the University of North Tex
as in Denton currently studying for my Bachelor of Arts in Music. My most recent studies in music have been highly focused on Worship Music concentrating on Piano and Voice. My lessons are focused on students studying on brass instruments and highly focused in music theory, understanding, and appreciation.

My son wanted to go to private lessons, he learned so much more with Patrick than he did with group lesson instructors from his school. Patrick is prompt, professional, and cares about his students. He worked with our schedule during the busy band season. We look forward to Patrick working with our son in the years to come.

Marilyn J.

Fort Worth, TX

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.
