I assist brand new learners as well as those who have considerable experience. From first introduction to the instrument through creating and composing you own score, you'll be well served. I've written my own syllabus after 25 plus years of experience.

In this crazy time, remote teaching is what we do! I’ve found it works quite well, and am enjoying seeing students own space as well. Happy distancing learning! Hello! I know you want to know about me, but this is really about YOU! I am a music coach. That means that my role is to find out

Do you want to unlock the mysteries of the guitar fretboard? Learn to play songs, improvise for the first time or explore new ideas for improvisation, study rhythmic grooves and learn to keep and feel the beat. Guitar can be a vehicle for your souls' deepest expression and also a form of practicing meditation. I began teaching before I attended Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. After Berklee, I performed in several bands, toured Europe and worked as a sound engineer for both live and studio settings including several festivals in Costa Rica.. I can help guide you with creating your own sound recordings if desired. Whether you are just getting started or an experienced guitarist looking for some unique perspective I'd love to help you find a new groove! My favorite styles to play are rock, reggae, R&B and the blues but I also play funk, jazz and classical guitar. Drop me a line today!

About Jennifer

I began playing guitar at 12 years old. Before that I had dappled with the piano and always sang. There was something about the guitar that just drew me in! I always loved seeing the hands of guitar players and the sounds that would accompany those shapes. Guitar is a very pattern based instrum

Have an audition coming up? Just want to improve your voice? Whether you've been singing your whole life or want to hone your skills, I'm here to help with those goals. I am a composer, pianist, and singer originally from Cleveland, Ohio with eight years of education experience ranging from young beginners to advanced and experienced musicians. As a voice teacher, my focus is on expressivity and healthy technique while making sure that you're always telling a story. I cover classical, pop, and jazz styles as well. Contact me to set something up!

About Alex

I am a professional composer, pianist, and singer originally from Cleveland, Ohio. I moved to Houston to study at Rice University's Shepherd School of Music this past fall (2019) and I am here pursuing my Master's Degree in Composition for the next few years. Before that, I completed a Bachelor's d

I really enjoyed my experience taking voice lessons from Alex! I learned something new every lesson and was given the opportunity to sing some of my favorite songs along with some that were less familiar. Alex helped me with many audition pieces and made sure I was prepared and confident before going into every audition. He made every lesson fun and I would definitely recommend taking lessons from him!
Michelle
My daughter took vocal training from Alex for several months until he moved. Alex went out of his way to individualize my daughter's training. He thought of relevant ways to make connections that were personalized to help her improve her technique. We felt she made significant improvements during her training, and would highly recommend Alex!
Tyler
I came to Alex as a student, not really sure of what I wanted from him. I loved to act, so I figured I needed a good voice so I could act in musicals. But after working with him he unlocked my love of music, and now I can’t stop singing! We did everything from Broadway, to opera, to pop, and anything else I wanted to work on. He asked me about my favorite artists and bands, so that we could work on music that I recognized, while at the same time learning songs he thought would improve my vocal technique. He taught me so much about singing and how to sing along the way, and I wouldn’t be the same without him. He got me to open up and I felt so supported. I knew I wanted to expand my range higher, and thanks to Alex I now sing bass, baritone, and tenor in separate choirs. There were times I was scared to audition or perform, and he made it so I could get on stage with all the confidence I needed.

From beginner to advanced. Basic fundamentals of piano and technique. Classical and modern/contemporary styles of playing including chord construction and voicing

I like to teach through a series of books by Nancy and Randall Faber, and Arthur's Adult Piano. Each of these are very different in approach so it really depends what your goals are so I can start you on the right books. This also depends on what you want to get out of your lessons. Do you want to learn pop songs? arrangements? Or do you want to learn classical pieces? I ask you all these questions and more at our first lesson to make sure you and I are both happy with the direction we will take.

About Francisca

Hi there, my name is Francisca! I graduated with a Bachelor of Music from the University of Western Sydney Australia with (High Class Honors) and Majored in Music Performance (voice major) and Sub Majors in Composition and Theatre. I am a very passionate and dedicated voice and piano instru

Alicia
I love Francisca’s patience, openness and expertise with vocals and playing the keys. I enjoyed our lively and very down to earth session and learning about breath and vocal health. She gave me tips since I lived in a Nevada which is a very dry place and ways I could improve my vocals in that climate.
I recommend anyone who is looking for a straightforward approach to technique to get lessons from Francisca! She is amazing!
Stacey
What a wonderful experience it was to work with this instructor. Her own experiences and talent far surpasses anything I had expected to experience in an online session.
She has an ability to help me find my voice and I am truly grateful to work with someone with her patience and ability to adapt to my level of learning. She is wonderful for any age group and extremely accommodating to make time for lessons.
I would recommend everyone to give her a try and would guarantee you will not be disappointed!
Jenny
I’ve had such a great time doing virtual lessons with Francisca! It is always so scary and nerve-racking to start with a new instructor, but I immediately felt at ease. Her energy is welcoming and calming, and What I admire most is that she can feel when I’m not emotionally in the song but instead in my head. Thank you for pushing me to break through these vocal cord cobwebs and get these pipes polished!

Want to play your favorite songs? Want to write your own? While focusing primarily on technique and theory, we'll also spend at least part of each lesson being creative together, whether improvising, or writing something, or just playing a game, because I believe that to be a well-rounded musician is to know how to communicate one's own ideas fluently. We'll also explore a variety of styles, including rock, country, pop, folk, and jazz, and we will learn songs both using a pick and using the fingers. I can also teach students to actually read music and not just tablature, if they're interested in exploring jazz and classical music. Message me today to see if we'd be a good match!

About Kyle

I am a professional violinist, violist, guitarist, pianist, composer, and educator. In addition to recording and touring with my own bands, I regularly arrange and record strings for artists and producers in a wide range of styles, from underground rappers to indie rock bands to grammy winning pop

I have been playing, teaching, and recording bass guitar for about 12 years now. I started out teaching jazz bass...and now play all forms of music with it.

About Joe

I absolutely love teaching music! After over 20 years of teaching, performing, writing, and recording in all styles/genres, it continues to be a great adventure. It is a joy to pass this on to others...especially seeing my students that never touched the instrument going on to be very proficient
