Danny V.

San Antonio, TX

About Danny

Danny is a singer, songwriter, motivational speaker, actor, and model. Danny has had a love for the performing arts since childhood. Every experience that Danny has from music videos, acting, working in bands A-Capella gospel and R & B groups, to American Idol, theater, auditioning, recording in a studio, working with a live crowd, a smaller intimate crowd hosting a show etc. you name it.

Danny believes that making a dream happen requires being solid on faith, being a visionary and also being ready to act and move on the impulse. Sometimes life throws us a curve ball and you have to be read
y to move. With life experience and hardships.

Danny appreciates and loves life and in everything he does he feels excited about any opportunity or door that comes his way.

Danny is currently self-employed. In Danny's spare time he loves to always be involved in self development in the entertainment arts and continues to pursue acting and singing. Danny is currently being represented by Condra Artista Talent Agency for the Austin and San Antonio region.

Danny states, In life I only see solutions and happiness in all aspects; I use my talents to express joy laughter and happiness through music poetry, motivational speaking, vocal lessons and comedy. I understand that sometimes you have to go through trial and error, but that's okay because that's how we learn to develop wisdom as people. I am forever humble and gracious about all my blessings because I know that someone out there is experiencing true misfortune, poverty and negativity. I surround my life, spirit thoughts, energy around people of positive driven energy and I project the same where ever I go. I love life and living!

As a teacher, I feel I can spot a good teacher; Danny is a good teacher. His strengths lie within his professionalism and approachability. As an instructor, Danny crafts instruction that is clear, relevant and purposeful. Perhaps his greatest asset is his firm but gentle guidance into challenging material. Here, Danny is respectful, but sensitively demands greater skill and effort. If you're looking for an A+ teacher, then look no further.

Danny has helped me get comfortable on stage. I always had a fear of talking to my audience in between sets. I get so nervous. Not anymore. So going in for voice and learning how to use a the microphone but also the icing of knowing what to say. I am not perfect now, but not a horrifying mess like I was. Now I can at least speak and feel relaxed. Simplicity singing lessons that f work. :)

Tim K.

Schertz, TX

About Tim (William)

My name is Tim and I live in Schertz, Texas. I hold a BM and a BME from UTSA and an MM from Texas State. I also studied drama for 3 years at Trinity University. I have been a music teacher for 26 years. I have taught elementary music, secondary choir and college level music courses. I have performed in operas, musicals and plays in San Antonio and I have sung at Carnegie Hall in New York. I studied voice with Herald Stark and guitar with David Underwood. I have led a professional singing group and a professional dance troupe. I have composed choral music which has been performed in San Anton
io and entered into international competitions. I have spent years learning techniques to help students sing in tune and learn how to read music. I have experience teaching students of all ages from 3 year olds to adults. I teach students from Northeast San Antonio, Selma, Schertz, Live Oak, Universal City, Cibolo, Bracken, Garden Ridge, Converse, Marion, Seguin and New Braunfels.

*** Lesson Details ***
For my younger guitar students, I use the Progressive Guitar Method for Young Beginners series. This book includes a CD to help the student practice at home. For my older guitar students I use a progressive guitar curriculum of my own creation.

For my voice students I use Pathways of Song, Hall Johnson Spirituals, 24 Italian Songs and Arias, Alfred's Folk Songs for Solo Singers, Carl Fisher's The Young Singer series as well as song materials based upon the student's personal interests, such as arts songs and Broadway show tunes.

For my piano students I use the Piano Adventures series by Nancy and Randall Faber and the Alfred Piano Series. Music reading, ear training and theory is part of my instruction. With daily practice you will see a noticeable improvement in musicianship, aural skills and music-reading ability.

I am also an experienced tutor. I have worked with students of all ages and with various learning differences. I have tutored students in reading, writing, math, social studies, ESL and test preparation.

Mr K. takes a very solid and practical approach. He has really helped me understand what the body needs for singing. I would recommend him to anybody really wanting a formal instruction and a "backbone" for vocal technique.

can then learn songs of your choice. You will learn the rhythm Guitar standard chords, advanced chords, power chords, barre chords, string techniques, music theory, music dynamics, picking/strumming, and alternate chord positions for sound/variety using transitions with chord progressions. I can teach popular music styles from 1920's to Current hits in your chosen styles and genre. 

****About Me****

I love music - so if you love music - we’ll get along great.

I believe every lesson you take gets you closer to being a guitarist.

Jim is a great guy and excellent teacher, but was not up to date on the oldies instrumentals and that was my main profile request. I did learn things from him in other areas that will help me with other songs. Thank you

Alfredo V.

San Antonio, TX

About Alfredo

I studied classical percussion in college and then specialized on drums at the Drummers Collective in New York City. I have toured with bands and played many times in front of crowds of more than 25 000 people. I have TV experience as well. I also have worked as a session drummer on several records for big labels (BMG and Sony Music among them). I work as a producer and my approach to teaching comes from my love of Music in general. I have been a drums instructor for more than 30 years and my students always get the gigs. I speak English and Spanish. My teaching style is fun and has a very cle
ar outline, remaining flexible within it. I keep learning and practicing every day, and am very open to having fun together while learning. If you practice, the results are shown on every lesson and you will really notice it!

*** Lesson Details ***
We start by learning how to Play, reading is not the first approach, but will be learned around the 3rd month . Everyone can do it and if you feel you can't, I'll prove otherwise during the first lesson. Afterwards we practice simple techniques and start with simple independence exercises, which feel great. You will be playing a beat with simple independence the first time we try it, which can be during the first lesson and no longer than three lessons afterwards. As you progress with the independence in rock style, we will work in other styles like funk, jazz, Latin, odd meters and African and the main focus will be that you become a great drummer. Whether you are aiming to become a pro or playing as a hobby, you will find great value in these lessons.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have 11 drum sets, recording gear, guitar and bass amplifiers and a pa system.

*** Travel Equipment ***
His own set. I could also rent them a set if needed, but having their own set is better for me. Sometimes I rented a set to my students in order for them to decide if they wanted to buy one.

*** Specialties ***
I use the Drummers Collective approach. I teach styles such as rock, jazz, funk, Afro-Cuban, pop, Brazilian, etc...

Alfredo is an incredibly accomplished Drummer and musician! His professional musical experience and accomplishments are quite impressive. It's humbling to have someone with his professional music background as a teacher. But don't let his background intimidate you. He is very patient, and has a well structured methodology to teach you how to become a good drummer. Alfredo's technique is not directed to just learn easy groves to play along with music. Rather, he is committed to teaching you the proper techniques that will give you the foundation to become a skilled drummer if you are willing to put in the time. It's challenging, to say the least, but I think it will pay dividends in the long-run. When you are around Alfredo, it's obvious that he "loves" playing the drums, as well as composing and playing other music/instruments. It's also great fun to play your exercises, while Alfredo plays along with you (challenging not to be distracted) on his drum set or bass guitar. Great FUN!

Michael K.

San Antonio, TX

About Michael

Hello! I'm Michael. Music has been 'my thing' since I found a guitar in my Mom's closet at age 9 and didn't move until figured out "Mary Had A Little Lamb". That's the curiosity I try to instill in my students! Although I started playing trumpet and guitar in elementary school, my music education at University of Texas in SA opened up musical doors I never knew existed! Currently I teach trumpet, guitar, piano, drums and saxophone, ages 6 to 45, as well as play trumpet around town when the sun goes down. I passionately emphasize music reading ability, improv techniques through jazz studies, an
d a solid music theory foundation- no matter what age you are!!!

LESSONS DETAILS
Every lesson, concepts are reviewed and emphasized, then we crawl forward through new music, discussing the technique and theory of every piece we play. I've accumulated an expansive library of teaching material to create a very diverse path when exploring the wonderful world of music. I always try to include a classical piece and a jazz piece in the repertoire. Popular music and original compositions are fun encouraged too!
Whatever your idea of music is, we will build on it, playing pieces you want to play!

THE INSTRUMENTS
A variety of instruments are at our disposal here in the studio, including...

Piano & electric keyboard, acoustic and electric guitars, trumpet & cornet, clarinet, flute, upright acoustic bass, 7-piece drum set & auxiliary percussion.

THE HOUSE
The house is very friendly and comfortable, great with children and families. Lots of natural light! There's a large front porch patio to relax on while you wait with a good book, or you can hang out inside with the siblings watching something on Netflix. I'll even give you the Wifi password ;)

Music Theory · In studio
I recently began taking lessons with Michael on understanding more about music theory with the objective of becoming a better guitarist and song writer. Not only the knowledge I have gained, but the overall improvement of my musicianship in such a short amount of time has greatly surpassed my expectations. I would highly recommend Michael to any musician looking to take their craft to the next level.

After just a few lessons with Michael I could see instant improvements in my guitar playing and truly started to understand more and more about my instrument, and just music in general. My lessons are always a good time with Michael and i look forward to each one every week. He's a great teacher and musician and I definitely recommend him to everyone.
