Nick M.

The Colony, TX

About Nick

Get to know me with free lessons first, email me for information!

I am a 25 year old, energetic teacher of almost any instrument, specially trumpet. I can teach in any style, and will not let you learn anything incorrectly! Lessons will be flexible and fun. I am willing to work with your schedule and will ensure that your lessons are worth it. I taught last year in the Fort Worth Independent School District as an assistant band director. I gave this up to further my education at UNT for my masters in Jazz Studies.

*** Lesson Details ***
Welcome to a friendly lesson. I prefer to cal
l a lesson an assisted practice session. Simply put we play a PERFECT practice session together. I want to ensure that I teach you how to practice correctly so that every other time you touch your instrument, you are progressing to success! Therefore instead of teaching you this strange foreign language of music, I am assisting you in learning it yourself.

*** Travel Equipment ***
My Trumpet.
Their Instrument + required music.

*** Specialties ***
My primary instrument is Trumpet. I am certified to teach all band instruments (woodwinds, brass, percussion). I have chosen the instruments that I am most knowledgeable about. I have spent most my time with classical trumpet pieces, with the last 2 years focused on transitioning to Jazz trumpet.

Jennifer J.

Frisco, TX

About Jennifer

Hi! My name is Jennifer J. I graduated with my Masters in Music from the University of Redlands. I received my Bachelor's Degree from the University of Louisiana at Monroe. Through my college career, I was able to perform in many musical productions. Some of these roles include: Yvonne in Miss Saigon (Louisiana Lyric Opera), Mother in Hansel and Gretel (University of Louisiana at Monroe), Erma in Anything Goes (University of Louisiana at Monroe), Euridice in Orfeo ed Euridice (University of Redlands), and Suor Angelica in Suor Angelica (University of Redlands). There are many performance comin
g up this year, also!

During my time in Undergrad, I had the opportunities to study abroad for two summers. I was accepted into University of Miami's Salzburg program (2009), and the following summer did Westminster Choir College's Florence Voice Seminar (2010). Throughout both of these experiences, I was able to work with world renowned teachers and coaches. These programs helped me grow as a teacher and a performer.

I am a member of NATS (National Association of Teachers of Singing), Texoma Region.

With the experience I have, I hope to start teaching you someday!

*** Lesson Details ***
I like to have fun in lessons, but also get things done and help my students grow. I do require my students to record every lesson, therefore helping them practice during the week. All in all, I want you all to feel comfortable in your learning environment, and have fun learning!

For voice, I teach multiple breathing exercises and techniques. Also, I will organize the individuals warm-ups according to the songs we are working on and voice type.

With piano, I use the Alfred book series. I learned piano using this series and I absolutely love the visuals and techniques. It makes it easy for parents to help with their kids.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Studio with Yamaha upright piano. Lots of stickers and fun stuff for young students. Parents are welcome to sit in the room or are welcome to sit in the living room during the lesson.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide the books, piano students need to pay $8 a book.

*** Specialties ***
In voice, I work the Alexander technique methods. I believe in releasing bad tension and freeing the voice.

In piano, I start with the Alfred Series. Once the student is in level 1B, I incorporate the use of a theory book. The understanding of theory is key in music!

Jennifer is an excellent teacher. Her attention to detail and technique cannot be matched. She has the ability to pinpoint exactly what needs improvement, and she is able to re-train the bad habits you have. I've seen a huge improvement in my voice in just one year. Now, I'm singing with a larger range with a much more healthy sound. This is important because I want my voice to last. I highly recommend Jennifer.

My son always leaves with a smile

My son has a lot of confidence issues, but taking the lessons with Aaron has opened a whole new world of opportunity for him, and he always leaves his sessions encouraged with a smile. It's also great that he can play piano now beyond his own expectations. He is learning proper technique and theory as well.

After being in several bands in highschool and attending the North East School of the Arts, I found that I could study music in college, so I started pursuing my Music Education Degree at SAC and am in the process of applying at UNT.
