Allison V.

Houston, TX

About Allison

My musical journey began with piano lessons at age 8 followed by flute lessons the next year. My passion for the flute grew as I played in school bands from 4th to 12th grade. I attended Southwestern University from 2009 to 2013 and graduated with a BM in Music Performance on the flute (magna cum laude) and gave private lessons throughout most of my college career with great success. I have performed in several ensembles including the flute choir, wind ensemble and orchestra at SU, as well as The Gilbert and Sullivan Society of Austin Orchestra in their production of The Mikado. I currently p
lay as a soloist as well as with the Shimmer Flute Choir and Sounds of Silver Flute Quartet, and am an active member of the Houston Flute Club.

Although classically trained I also enjoy classic rock and appreciate music from other cultures as well.

Fun Fact: In college I arranged Three Dog Night's Joy to the Word/Jeremiah was a Bullfrog for flute quartet which has been performed on two separate occasions and was well received!

I frequently write arrangements for flute choir and other ensembles, and so I can help students who want to learn more about arranging and composition.

In addition to the flute I also have experience with the piccolo, alto, and bass flute. I love performing and I share my passion for music with my students.

*** Lesson Details ***
I offer lessons that cover just about every aspect of flute-playing. Students can expect to become well-rounded musicians that are knowledgeable about flute technique, tone, music theory and history. I use the Rubank Method with handout supplements. The biggest changes I've seen in my students after a few months is a better understanding of how to practice efficiently as well as improved tone.

I strive to make lessons fun and interesting. I do not consider myself strict, but I do not ignore bad habits. My goal is to see students improve. I want students to understand that playing an instrument is a lot of fun, but it is also a lot of hard work.

My teaching philosophy focuses on slow and deliberate practice of technique while still appreciating the expression and style of a piece. I never force a student to play a piece he or she does not like because I feel that doing so discourages practice and slows musical development. I like to encourage students to pick their own solos and partly base the lesson on whatever aspects of the solo need attention, as well as whatever else the student is working on. I try to use a variety of methods for explaining concepts including pictures, verbal descriptions, demonstrations, etc., depending on what works best for the student. I focus heavily on good posture and tone production, stressing on learning good playing habits at a young age. I believe that music lessons should be a fun and engaging part of a student's week. Ultimately my goal is to share my enthusiasm for music and my instrument with the student and deepen their love for the art.

*** Studio Equipment ***
My studio is located in the front room of my home and includes a music stand, piano and comfortable chairs in case parents would like to stay for the lesson.

*** Specialties ***
I primarily concentrate on classical music, but I also have experience with extended techniques, which include singing and playing at the same time, key clicks, and multiphonics.

Debbie "Debra" T.

Houston, TX

About Debbie (Debra)

Having been a public school teacher, as well as a private and group piano instructor, I've observed how differently students "digest" information, and piano lessons are a great way to make use of different learning styles. I emphasize knowing HOW to practice before you leave so you'll be successful at home, and you are welcome to contact me with problems during the week so you don't lose a week in progressing with your lessons. I've had students send a video of a tricky section to ask for alternative fingering, and photos to clarify how they are reading something!! I also perform with an or
chestra and want to feel proficient among my peers, so I really know how it feels to make a mistake in front of everyone. I am here to help you feel proud of your progress.
My primary teaching objective is to have fun as I assist you on this wonderful journey into music!

*** Lesson Details ***
I truly have fun making and teaching music. We celebrate all successes. Even the overcoming of the smallest "hiccups"!
There are games to make my students secure with the many concepts of music reading. I encourage improvisation and ensemble playing. We can add rhythm tracks to "jazz" up our scales and finger builders. Students can accompany with chords or melodic harmonies. I assign exercises to build finger flexibility, strength, fluidity and independence; Pencil work to master theory and reading skills; Pieces that contain the ideas we are focused upon; and pieces to add to your repertoire.

*** Studio Equipment ***
At my Home Studio,You will be playing on my 5'1" Knabe grand piano! I also have electronic keyboards. On occasion you may find yourself playing on my marimba - a definite pitch percussion instrument - like a giant xylophone. We often rehearse our rhythms on my variety of world drums! There are chairs available for guests.
Also, I share my home with my pet cats - so if you are allergic, I'd be happy to consider coming to your home for your lessons.

*** Travel Equipment ***
An electronic keyboard with full-sized keys or a tuned piano must be available along with a proper height stool, bench or chair. A music stand for the books and good lighting is also needed. The family must agree that the 'lesson space' deserves to be quiet with no distractions. I can also bring one of my keyboards to use for duets, accompanying and improvising. Should there be another student (or potential student) in the home, they can use the extra keyboard with headphones for guided practice and creativity. Percussion students - primarily- mallets, would be better served at my home using my marimba. However, those who have bell kits could be taught in their home, with the possibility of using my marimba as an incentive.

*** Specialties ***
I am fortunate to have an extensive collection of piano method books and solos that I make available as part of my lending library. From it I can reinforce a concept or reward an accomplishment with an "oldie, but goodie" from John Thompson or Schaum, without having to charge the parents for another piece. For my beginning piano students of elementary school age, I have used the Robert Pace, Bastien, Faber & Faber and Schaum series. With adults, I invite them into the decision depending on what their experience is and what they would like to be able to perform one year from now. With transfer students, I have asked them to play their favorites from the lesson books they own, (and I ask them to evaluate their proficiency)- then we discuss where to go from there. Often it is positive to stay at the same level but use different literature so they can become comfortable with my style of explanations and expectations. This encourages a relationship where the student feels like they do know what they were taught and 'cements' those skills as a foundation for our moving forward together. I have a CD player handy for the books that include recorded tracks to go along with a learned piece.

My 10 year old football loving/playing son has been taking lessons with Ms. Debbie for just over 4 1/2 months. He loves it!!! Debbie is such an awesome music teacher, not only teaching him how to play the piano, but teaching him about music as well. I highly recommend Ms. Debbie to anyone just beginning, or even those brushing up after years of not playing piano!!! We give her many thumbs up!!!!

Debbie T., my piano teacher

I am a senior who decided to learn the piano. This is something I have wanted to do all my life. I began with a private teacher and studied with him for 6 months. Although he was a very good instructor something was missing. I searched the internet and found TakeLessons.com and found Debra's profile. I have been studying under Debbie for one year as of January, 2014. She is the absolute BEST! I have only praise for her. She is patient, kind, funny, very very knowledgable, She is professional, energetic, and flexible. I just can't say enough good things about her. I see our relationship lasting for many years to come! I just love her!
