Susan T. Grand Prairie, TX

About Susan B.

I would first like to say that I was born into a musical family. My Dad (choir director) and five older brothers were not only the majority of the choir in our large Catholic church, but Dad had a "tame" Frank Sinatra singing style. My mother played harmonica and piano by ear so acquiring musical intellects spread quickly to all of us. Most of my siblings sang and played instruments as we had a piano, guitar, organ, harmonica, trumpet, clarinet and a recorder to use as we pleased, with or without a music teacher. I started singing and playing the piano at age four. With consistent encouragement from my oldest sister (a professional organist for 40+ years), I learned piano and music theory while I was learning to read English, started guitar at eight. A natural born singer, I ...

We love Ms Taylor! My son (6) started piano on his 5th birthday and a year later he is still excited and can't wait for his lessons with Ms Taylor. He wants to practice and is always so excited when he finishes a song. He loves showing off to his friends and family, playing songs on the piano. Admittedly, when we started piano, I wasn't expecting much, as my son was a typical 5 year old boy, who likes to wiggle and loses focus quickly; however, Ms Taylor is caring, patient and very knowledgeable and works great with children, and my son is really enjoying his piano lessons and has asked to take on guitar lessons as well in the future. Great teacher and experience!

excellent piano teacher

Susan Taylor is an excellent piano teacher. We are very, very happy with the lessons she has given us. She has that much desired quality of being flexible and understanding, not pushing the student too hard, and yet expecting the student to "perfect" her short pieces, so that she is playing beautifully right from the start. I highly recommend Ms. Taylor to anyone, adult or child, who is interested in learning to play the piano.

Amazing

Ms. Taylor is a wonderful teacher. She is very patient, caring and understanding. I am very shy and have anxiety problems but she does her best to help me to relax and not feel so shy. She is very knowledgable and helpful. You couldn't ask for a better instructor.
Mike F. Arlington, TX

About Mike

Music is my life and air. I started playing the drums when I was 12 years old. I played in every band and music ensemble I could throughout junior high, high school, and college. I have played in bands outside of school with music styles ranging from Rock, Punk, Hardcore, Metal, and Hip Hop. Since 2008, I have been teaching private drum set lessons and marching percussion to students of all ages and backgrounds, including Special Needs. Recently, I attended the University of Texas at Arlington where I furthered my education in music teaching, music theory, performance, and percussion. I am also an experienced Djembe and Didgeridoo performer. Teaching and encouraging others in music comes naturally to me, and my degree in Music Business supports knowing how to prepare lessons and ...

Great drummer and great guy

Mike volunteers drumming for the band I lead at a local church. Regardless of how difficult the song selection is, he nails his part every week. Mike's experience with diverse musical genres allows him to draw upon a wide range of rhythms and techniques. In addition to his talent, Mike's character stands out as well. Each week he arrives early, is prepared, and friendly.
Ray M. Arlington, TX

About Ray

Born in Arlington, Texas, I began playing guitar and bass guitar in high school. After studying for several years under Joey Faust, I studied Jazz, Classical Guitar, and Music Theory at TCC in Fort Worth. I've been teaching since 2003, my students ranging in age from 3 to over 70. I also play piano, mandolin, banjo, ukulele, and auto harp. *** Lesson Details *** I believe lessons should be fun, so all lessons are tailored to the individual student, based on the student's interests and goals. Students are free to progress at their own pace, and to choose their own learning material. Styles and techniques include Rock, Country, Blues, Bluegrass, Jazz, Shred, Slide Guitar, Classical Guitar, and Slap Bass, to name a few. *** Studio Equipment *** Lessons in my home studio are ...

What a great experience! I like Ray's approach and his willingness to share no nonsense remarks about his expectations. Yes, practice is key to becoming a good banjo player. Imagine that!
I appreciate the fact that Ray was so open in sharing the fact that many of his students underestimate the importance of regular practice. I whole-heartedly agree. Since we share the same philosophy and approach, this is the start of a great relationship. (Can't give it 5 stars though, solely because of the traffic. The lessons are worth the trip!)

My Banjo Lessons

Ray has already helped this 47 Year old kid to make large leaps in my understanding of music theory and my instrument. I really appreciate Rays knowledge of music and his ability to break it down so that anyone can understand and put into practice the knowledge gained very quickly. My hour lessons go so fast that I wonder where the time went.

Ray has been very flexible to this student and has been very accommodating to all the questions I have. He is patient and will go over anything again until you understand the lesson.

I Highly recommend Ray to any level of student all ages just starting out or someone who wants to gain more knowledge with the instrument you have.

I appreciate what he has taught me so far and am very excited to see where this journey takes me.
Billy H. Arlington, TX

About Billy

I teach my students how to understand how music is put together so they can learn even more on their own. I read, write, and play all styles and I focus on teaching the student fundamentals that work in all styles of music ....AND I get them going on the style they are interested in - pop, rock, country, folk, etc. I have spent my entire life in the music industry and I can show you how to use what I teach to apply to the real world. I have also been a successful songwriter and I can work with students to learn about song structure and song writing. I am also good at preparing students for college music classes. *** Lesson Details *** I like to break it down into small steps and accomplish them, then move on to the next. Each person learns differently and I am good at ...

Colton K. Dallas, TX

About Colton

Colton is a Certified Music Teacher. Want to learn piano but not sure where you want to start? Want to learn not just beautiful classics but rockin' blues riffs and jazz improvisation as well? I've played piano for over twenty years now in almost every setting imaginable: classical concerts, jam bands, vocal accompaniment. Or perhaps you'd like to learn low brass? Maybe you want to rip out some licks on a tuba, trombone, or euphonium? I started with euphonium in 6th grade fifteen years ago and have since played low brass in both classical ensembles and a gigging New Orleans brass band, and I can certainly develop these skill sets for you as well. Maybe you want to delve into the electronic world of sound recording, session engineering, and music post-production. Using Pro ...

Professional, fun, well-worth-it

Colton has provided excellent Tuba lessons for my 6th grader playing music for the first time. He is responsive to student needs and moves at a just right pace. He is friendly and fun. He addresses what my son is needing to practice for school and then takes it to the next level. He covers not only the skills for playing the tuba but also etiquette of instrument care, being in an ensemble, and music theory. He's easy to schedule with. Highly recommended.

Expect great things with Colton

Colton is passionate about music and you can see that right away after 5 minutes of talking to him. He is incredibly talented and my emotions during the lesson range from intimidation, respect, to excitement and motivation. Colton should be found teaching at a university sharing coffee with tweed covered professors leading hoards of students to musical enlightenment. His excitement for music is contagious and I leave the lesson feeling recharged for my practices and ready to take on new projects. He has a way of demanding the best of you and having a good time altogether without you even noticing.

I hold a BA in Music with an Ethnomusicology Emphasis. During my undergraduate studies I studied under Mr. David Taylor, the assistant concertmaster of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. I also learned viola during my undergrad, playing viola in the full orchestra at my school for my junior and senior ...
