Greg D. Carrollton, TX

About Greg

Greg has been playing drums since he received his first drum kit at the age of 8. His parents helped Greg nourish his abilities by enrolling him in private lessons and starting him in the school band program (which I see has an important aspect to learning, but not necessary). During his junior and high school years, Greg participated in concert bands, youth orchestra, marching band, and played in a variety of high school musicals. His time spent with these ensembles enabled him to travel overseas to London and all over the United States performing in festivals, parades, and competitions. After high school, Greg attended the acclaimed University of North Texas in Denton, Texas where he received his Bachelor of Music in 2002. His studies enabled him to learn history, arranging, ...

I tried taking lessons using RockSmith 2014 then decided to try a few in home lessons to compare and troubleshoot issues I was having. I found the benefits of lessons with an interactive instructor far outweighed trying to teach myself through other methods. Gordie is professional, makes lessons fun, interesting and when problems arise he changes his method of teaching, becoming a better teacher rather than expecting you to become a better student.

Fantastic Online Lessons!!!

Online lessons are so easy and productive. Long day at work? bad traffic? snowstorm?...none of that effects your online lessons. Moreover, Gordie has an endless library of songs to teach and you just can't stump him! He's patient and practical and does a tremendous job!
Carol D. Dallas, TX

About Carol

On singing and performing: I've been a musician for a very long time and can testify that music heals on a mind, body, and soul level! Though my official performances in front of audiences started with playing woodwind instruments such as clarinet, sax, and flute from elementary school through high school in band, my primary instrument in earnest has been voice for the past 27 years. However, my Mom told me that I have actually been singing--well, humming (a recognizable tune at that!)-- since I was nine months old. I've lead numerous solos in small ensembles and large choirs over the years, and was very involved not only with the adult music ministry at my church, but directed the children's choir as well. I'm a huge fan of arranging and creating harmonies for duets, trios, and small ...

Carol is a wonderful voice teacher. She is easygoing and patient. I have been taking weekly lessons with her since June of 2014 and have increased in my range. I now attend every other week.

I am a mezzo-soprano but used to always sing in alto range, but now I am more comfortable singing in my range or sometimes higher. Also, I am already naturally talented but needed some guidance in knowing when to breath through phrases, increased range, and holding notes long enough to make it sound more beautifully.

She has helped me a lot. I truly recommend her for beginners or those of you who are already talented and just need to tweak things up a bit. She's amazing. I enjoy her as a teacher. Thank you Carol!

My daughter's very first experience taking lessons and after spending time with Carol she's convinced singing as a career is what she wants to do.

Thanks Carol for keeping the light burning in my daughter's eyes!

I am an adult beginner and Scott has the unique ability to guide me along the DIFFICULT challenge of learning the piano while, at the same time, challenging me to do my best. I'm sure he is as sensitive with children and treat each as the individual they are.

I met Michael at a gig and was blown away by all the original material he wrote and played on guitar. In a couple of years of lessons I learned more technique and and music theory than I did after 20 years on my own. Michael is a world class player/composer and a very patient teacher. You can't find any better.

Michael isn't just a great teacher and amazing guitarist, but he's a crazy good composer as well, which is a skill that can be difficult to find among many music instructors these days. If you're looking to get started from scratch or are a more experienced guitarist looking to break into that next level of playing, Michael would be a great choice as he's the real deal for sure. Great guy too!

I had been playing for a long while and knew that If I was going to get better I needed to play and learn from someone way better than I.

Michael is that person! At first I thought I would be learning some cool licks and techniques and I did, but Michael gave me much more than that.

I didn't realize I was going to learn theory as well. I feel that he gave me a solid foundation to move forward.

Thanks to Michael H., I'm not a leaf in the wind any longer...Thanks Michael!!
