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 ...

Josh has been teaching me singing for 3 months now and I feel like i've made a world of improvement. He works with me to find what my problems are and how I should go about fixing them. I think that any level of singer will be able to learn a lot from him.

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.

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.

I began taking lessons from Melissa after my first teacher felt unable to take me to the next level. A classmate recommended Melissa and I'm glad she did. I have learned so much and I have fun on each lesson too.

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!

I’ve had the pleasure of taking saxophone and flute lessons from Julian for the past six years and also studied music theory and beginning keyboard with him. Julian knows music inside out and is a consummate professional.

It’s fun studying music with Julian; he’s very patient and easy going and does an excellent job of identifying areas where I need to improve. His explanations are clear and concise. His lessons are always enjoyable and I improve after each one.

Julian always steers me toward the etudes and music that are the most beneficial for me.

He takes the time to make sure I’m doing new things correctly, even if it means spending more time on something than we planned. He has great love and enthusiasm for music and I always come away from my lesions more highly motivated. I highly recommend him for both student and adult instruction.

In addition to being an excellent teacher, Julian is a full-time professional musician and performer. I’ve seen him perform a number of times and he’s a terrific saxophone player. If you are interested in becoming a professional musician he knows the business from first-hand experience.

Julian has been my 11 year old son's saxophone instructor for over two years. My son quickly learned the basics of saxophone and was able to perform in a talent show at school and at church in less than a year. He gained confidence in playing saxophone and has gained a stage presence. He looks forward to his weekly lessons. Julian has not only taught saxophone but mentored my son regarding tips to become a professional musician. I am grateful we found Julian, he has been a excellent instructor!
