About Melissa

Hello! Melissa C. here and I can't wait to meet you! Here's a bit about me.

I have a BFA in Musical Theater with a minor in piano from the University of Oklahoma. I also became a certified Montessori preschool teacher while living in NYC. I have performed in some great places such as Hershey PA, aboard the MS Maasdam cruise ship, Seoul South Korea, traveling tours and of course, good old NYC! I had the great fortune to be in the original cast of SCHOOLHOUSE ROCK LIVE! on Broadway as well as many other Off Broadway musicals such as the It Girl. Here in Dallas I perform in plays and m
usicals on a regular basis and I love it!! What gets me excited now is teaching kids, teens and people of all ages to sing or play the piano! I teach in several schools to groups of children and I just love teaching privately!

*** Lesson Details ***
We will have fun learning piano and voice together! For voice students I will teach you everything from classical to Broadway! I design an individual and unique curriculum to meet your needs and goals! After all, we are all different!

For my fabulous piano students, I use the Ferber method and infuse a good deal of music theory as we go along! I believe in this curriculum strongly, but I also encourage you to bring in music that YOU want to learn for FUN!

Brian inspired first my daughter and then my son to really love playing the piano. They were really proud of their accomplishments and were able to show it off at various recitals that Brian organized. We were very sorry to see him move from Chicago! He's easy going, relatable and cares a lot about the kids. I'd highly recommend.

I couldn't have asked for a better teacher. Brian was able to take me from not playing the sax in 10 years to playing in front of 200 people at my wedding in 6-7 sessions. I'd highly recommend him to anyone looking for lessons.

Patrick T.

Denton, TX

About Patrick

Having studied music for just over ten years, I am passionate about teaching others to better experience and understand music. I believe that interaction with the arts is an invaluable part of a persons education and social being. Beyond all of the technicalities of music education, it is also invaluable for one to be able to enjoy and appreciate the music that they spend so much time studying. Music has played a huge role in the development of my life and I absolutely enjoy sharing that experience with others.

As for me, I am a student in the College of Music at the University of North Tex
as in Denton currently studying for my Bachelor of Arts in Music. My most recent studies in music have been highly focused on Worship Music concentrating on Piano and Voice. My lessons are focused on students studying on brass instruments and highly focused in music theory, understanding, and appreciation.

My son wanted to go to private lessons, he learned so much more with Patrick than he did with group lesson instructors from his school. Patrick is prompt, professional, and cares about his students. He worked with our schedule during the busy band season. We look forward to Patrick working with our son in the years to come.
