Tara G. Austin, TX

About Tara

I graduated from University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA! I received a BFA in Musical Theatre. What a change that was to go from Texas to Philly! I auditioned for many different schools, and know what it takes to get there. I then moved to New York City 2 days after graduating, on my 22nd birthday! I had 13 wonderful, and also challenging, years in NYC. Lots and lots of auditions, of every kind! Broadway, Off-Broadway, TV, Soaps, Film, Commercials, Concerts, Readings, Showcases, etc. I have sung for ABBA (Mama Mia), Stephen Schwartz (Wicked), Hal Prince (Gypsy). I was also up for leads in Mama Mia, Wicked, Rent, Hairspray. So, I definitely have a lot of versatility, and knowledge of what they're looking for! I did a Eugene O'Neil play called "Ah Wilderness" at the Guthrie ...

Beautiful voice..Beautiful person

I watched Tara grow up while attending our local Center Stage Theater in Houston . which by the way was lead by a very professional staff ....Tara was featured in most of the productions and did an amazing job...even back then she had a strong work ethic. I recently had the pleasure of hearing her sing again when Center Stage held their 30th Reunion in November.....She is such an amazing performer/singer...with a wonderful personality which would work well teaching students.....I highly recommend Tara as a teacher/coach...

Quality lessons from a quality human being.

I have known Mrs. Gillespie for the majority of my life and have seen her love for art, gymnastics, theatre, dance and song, grow significantly through the years. If you, your child, or anyone you know would like to gain experience and confidence, Mrs. Gillespie will help you soar.

About James

I have been performing, recording, and teaching music for the past five years. After getting a degree in music theory, I began playing with a band full time. In addition to playing all around Austin, I have traveled to places like Seattle, Nashville, and Waikiki to play shows, record, and interview with with my band on live radio. Songs from our album were played on Austin's own KGSR. We also played on Fox 7's morning show, Good Day Austin. I enjoy playing and teaching a variety of instruments and a variety of genres.

James is an excellent instructor! As a beginner student, he worked with me to pin down my goals and tailored the lessons to fit me personally. He's great at many different instruments beyond piano, and this expertise allows him to explain music beyond just the notes on the page. He really helped me enjoy the lessons and feel like I've made great progress despite being a novice.

We are very pleased with his progress so far.

Joshua started piano lessons with James in May, 2013. He has already learned to play numerous songs, and he has learned a great deal about different keys and chords in each key. James is very patient and utilizes every minute of our 30 minute lesson to cover as much as possible. Joshua likes and respects James a lot and looks forward to his piano lesson every week. Thank you James for being a great teacher!
Teresa S. Austin, TX

About Teresa

I grew up performing and singing. My family loved music and the arts and we went to the theater, ballet and symphony all the time in Houston Texas. My mother used to play music to get me to sleep when I was very young. She played opera by the famous Italian tenor Caruso and symphonic music by the French Impressionist composer Debussy. As a teenager I played the guitar and sang folk and pop songs with my friends. When I became an adult my interest turned back to classical music and opera as I had heard as a toddler. Eventually I found myself on stage singing opera in New York City and classical chamber music at Tanglewood in the Berkshires. I began teaching voice while I was getting a Bachelor's Degree in Music at the University of Texas. When I came to New York City I opened the Vocal

Amazing Teacher!

I started taking lessons with Alex after previously taking them with a different teacher. It turns out that my technique was flawed and Alex was quick to correct it. After working with him for just a few lessons, I was already seeing improvement. Alex is very patient and helpful. I never feel embarrassed to play in front of him as I did with my previous teacher. I definitely recommend Alex!

The Perfect Teacher!

Alex got me really into the passion of music, all the while fulfilling my desire to really learn the guitar. He approaches every lesson with complete patience and guidance. I am now able to learn songs on my own, understand the theory behind chord changes and scales, and I find the beauty in knowing what music really is!

I finally understood music!

Alex helped me reach my goals as both a guitarist and composer. He took me from having no idea about how scales are made and their use. I now play lead guitar in a rock band and I actually understand what I'm doing on stage and in the industry.

I asked Joshua Bell (one of the greatest violinist of our time) about how to be a great violinist? To which he responded by saying: "Find a really good teacher, one who pushes you and cares for your success."
I would not be exaggerating by saying Naomi is one of those teachers.
I've been taking lessons for almost 4 years and Naomi has been nothing but supportive, cheerful, energetic, focused and dedicated to finding even the minutest mistake. Naomi has tirelessly pointed out even the slightest of out of tune notes; and she demands perfection before moving on to next lesson. She focuses on fundamental over frills; and she really cares for the success of her students.
She has always pushed me and motivated me in many creative ways to practice and be better at violin. I am going to continue taking lessons with her and would highly recommend Naomi.

Naomi is an excellent teacher. She is patient, kind, and won't blow you off if you have a question. In the 2 years that she was my teacher, she has taught me a lot about the violin, which techniques to use, how to tune my instrument, and much more. If you want to learn the violin, take her as your teacher! You won't regret it :)

I was totally a beginner in Violin when I started my lessons with Naomi. She is a very patient and loving teacher, taught me how to hold bow correctly, with a lot of helpful practice and encouragement, which is really helpful to beginners who know nothing. She always tried her best to help me to master the skills, a lot of observation and correction, also encouragement. When I first started, I never expect to keep learning for over a year. Then five years later, I found myself still enjoy the lesson and playing violin. Due to some personal reasons, I have to give up my violin lesson. But my five years experience of learning violin is like a difficult but fun journey, and Naomi is there to keep me on the track and make the journey even more enjoyable.

Yes, I highly recommend Naomi to be your violin teacher!
