About Priscilla

I love people of all ages. And I love helping them discover what beautiful things they can create in the world of music! Music is such a powerful way to express ourselves, and I love helping others learn how to do this and really enjoy it. I have played piano since I was three. When I was able to read at age four, I began lessons, and the rest is history. I graduated from Wheaton College Conservatory of Music with a degree in Piano Performance and completed a Master's degree in Piano Performance at the University of Redlands. I love to perform, have written several songs, produced three CD's all with original music that I perform, and have just completed a fourth CD featuring major classical piano works arranged with favorite hymns. I have also written a musical and am in the

I am very proud of knowing Priscilla and introducing her to be my son and nephew’s piano teacher. She is a very professional, responsible and high-level teacher. She loves teaching and loves to pass her music passion to her students. What’s more, she is also a composer. I love her solo CDs which have become my home and car background music, in which people can feel the elements of calmness, happiness, purity, maturity, delight and gratefulness, all beautiful alive feelings from life. Being instructed by such a wonderful teacher with beautiful inner spirit, no wonder all her students play beautiful music

Priscilla is nothing short of fantastic! I took lessons from her when she lived here in San Diego and enjoyed them so much I am now taking online lessons from her since she moved. She is profoundly knowledgeable, patient, dedicated and kind. Her teaching methods are clear and help to make learning the piano both interesting and fun. I am an adult student, but I also know that she is very skilled at teaching children of all ages.

Priscilla is a great singing teacher!

I've been taking singing lessons from Priscilla for a year. Mostly Broadway, some blues, some classical. I've learned a lot from Priscilla! I enjoy singing a lot more now and my voice has gotten dramatically better in a year. Priscilla is a fun, very sweet, and she makes you work hard. When I started, I knew how to read music but I didn't have experience singing. She has been a great teacher at every step of the way, even as my skill level has changed dramatically.
Joshua C. Dallas, TX

About Joshua

Music has always been a part of Josh's life. He started playing around with instruments at the age of three and singing at the age of seven. He instantly fell in love with music and grew a passion for it. At the age of five he attended his first musical concert, Garth Brooks. Josh loved every minute of it and he could see himself on a stage like Garth Brooks in the future. One day he heard someone playing guitar down in an alley and from that day forward he knew he wanted to play that instrument and it would become his specialty. In high school he played in the jazz band and was the lead guitarist. He also picked up the trumpet and played it in the jazz band. During his high school days music became his life and he created his own personal band. He wrote songs for his band and ...

Awesome guitar teacher!!!!

Josh is a great guitar teacher. He is patient when he needs to be and makes me work hard when he needs me too. I have learned a great deal about guitar taking lessons from Josh. Not only do I know how to play guitar but he also teaches me the theory behind the music and for a bonus he teaches songwriting also. Everything you need to be the best musician you want to be. I would definitely recommend Josh to anyone who wants to start learning guitar. He can teach all ages so don't wait.
Whitney H. Dallas, TX

I have been teaching piano for a few years now and enjoy it immensely. Piano is my passion and my talent. I love being able to help others achieve their musical goal, whatever it may be. I do my very best to meet your expectations and style my lessons toward your learning needs. I look forward to having you as a student!

About Whitney

I am a classically trained pianist who competed in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area for 15 years (began lessons at age 5). While I do posses the training that allows me to instruct students who are interested in performance level musicianship, I by no means expect my students to desire this for themselves. My students have different interests and each are at a different skill level. Each student presents unique challenges, goals and progress so no matter what your interest/skill level is, we will make sure you are happy and successful. *** What you can expect from me *** We'll speak briefly about your expectations and schedule, then formulate a plan that will help you reach your goals. Whether your goal is to learn scales by the end of the month, figure out where middle C is, or ...

If bees had knees, they'd name them Whitney. She's very supportive and adaptive to her students.

I am a first time player and she never makes me feel like i'm wasting her time or frustrating to work with.

I also have a crazy schedule that she is able to work around which may be the most important aspect of our relationship. She always is accommodating to all my issues which helps relieve the stress and challenge of learning something abstract.

Thanks Whitney!

Excellent teacher for all levels!

While I played the cello as a child, I'm an adult beginner when it comes to piano.

I've been taking piano lessons from Whitney for a year, and I really like studying with her. When I first started, we sat down and talked about my goals. She was able to start with where I was (familiar with musical concepts, able to read the base clef, unfamiliar with treble, and baffled at how to make my hands work together) and have our lessons perfectly suited to what I need. It's a perfect balance so I can understand the basics, but we can breeze right through what I already know. Now I can play several songs that actually sounds like real music and I'm so excited!

I definitely have some goal pieces I'd like to play one day, and Whitney's been excellent at finding pieces for me to learn that are the incremental steps. We've also done fun pieces, like Halloween and Christmas songs, as well as Disney songs leading up to a trip I'm taking. She's amazing at helping me find pieces that are something I'm really interested in but that also challenge me just enough.

She helps me with technique, and especially helps me set up how to practice, so I can keep progressing without getting stuck with one warm up exercise.

Also, her studio is BEAUTIFUL.

Great teacher!

I am 60 years old and have returned to daily play and practice after sporadic playing for decades. I hired Whitney because I was working on pieces that quite frankly I felt I could not play. I asked her one day if she thought I could play Schubert's opus 90 no,1. Her answer was decisive. She said, "It's not so much whether I think you could play it (you could, you're able). The question is really will you do the necessary practice to produce that result?"
In a steady progression Whitney returned me to the basics necessary to build the skills for performance level. Starting with scales and the circle of fifths, the relative minor and arpeggio practice Whitney very quickly sharpened my skills to my previous performance level and then I experienced playing beyond what I thought I could do.
I am now fulfilling a lifetime dream of practicing and playing the Goldberg Variations by Bach, something I thought that I would never do.
I highly recommend this teacher, her training starts right where you are at.
Michael E. Dallas, TX

Unlike most teachers, I teach piano chords FIRST. They are simple to teach and learn if done properly. In the songs you listen to, there are chords being played whenever you hear singing. You'll start by learning a Beatles song on your first lesson. But there's more. I have developed the first comprehensive tablature for piano. You can choose the old way or my new way, once you've seen me compare the two.

About Michael

My name is Mike E. I am a resident of Lake Highlands. I played by ear for eleven years before starting training on music and how to teach by Mr. Terrill Gardner. Terrill took me through music from the Rolling Stones all the way through "Modern Method for Guitar" books I, II, and III from Berklee College in Boston. He was my mentor and taught me a method that he spent thirty years perfecting. It works, guaranteed. He also taught me on bass guitar and banjo. I can help you. Lessons are customized to meet the needs of the individual, with the primary focus on playing songs as soon as possible. I am talking about playing along with the pros, not reading notes for months and playing "Mary Had a Little Lamb." I have combined my "by ear" knowledge with Terrill's training to provide a unique ...

Mike is great, he simplifies a complex music reading into plain simple English. Within a few lessons, Mike had me playing all the major chords and using them to play songs. I look forward to being able to play more complex songs with Mike.

Mike amazed me!

On a free introductory meeting with Mike, he taught me every major chord on the piano in ONE SENTENCE! Then he taught me every minor chord in ONE MORE SENTENCE. His personality and demeanor matched his knowledge. Most of all, he made it all fun.

Melissa M. Richardson, TX

I've been teaching piano for 18 years and my students have gone on to study music in college, perform professionally, or just had fun learning. I specialize in all levels and styles, believe a good foundation of music theory is important, and have the following tools available for your lessons: music literature library, method books, and a baby grand piano! I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

About Melissa

Hi! My name is Melissa and I can't wait to help you embark on your musical goals! After 18 years of teaching and performing, I have learned what works and what doesn't. More importantly, I understand that each student is different. What works for you or your student may not work for another, so it is important to recognize those differences and update my instruction technic based on each student's needs. I also have a long resume of performance experience that aids in my ability to prepare my students for all avenues including recitals, ensemble performances, professional auditions, and preparation for college. I personally hold two degrees in music and have studied with some of the most sought after coaches.

Melissa began teaching my two girls when they were 5 and 6 years old. From day 1, they would not stop talking about their lessons with Miss Melissa. I noticed during the lessons thay she really took the time to build up the girls confidence. As they got older the girls became active in school misic programs and community theater. They always seemed to be a step ahead of the class because of the strong foundation they received in piano lessons. Melissa also helped my oldest prepare of her college music department audition where she was accepted with a scholarship offer to both her first and second choice schools. We highly recommend Melissa!
