Branda T. Irving, TX

All my violin students learn to play by reading music. I do use the Suzuki book, but I do not teach the traditional Suzuki method.

About Branda

*** Travel Equipment *** Students that take in-home lessons should have piano at home. *** Specialties *** I play and teach primarily classical music. I do mix in other types of music for variety, such as holiday music in the Fall semester, and movie music and show tunes in the Spring and summer. Most of my students are in the Faber method, but I am also familiar and teach from the Alfred, Hal Leonard, and Bastien methods. All my piano students do theory exercises. Most of them take the state theory tests. I use Just the Facts and Theory Time for theory, and I also use other supplementary materials for additional practice.

Gaily has helped me so much

Gaily is an amazing violinist. She is very flexible and tells me what I need to know in order to improve. When I get a little bored with my practice drills, we work on fun music that I love to play.

I have noticed a huge difference in my playing since taking lessons from her. I play more in tune and with more confidence. You should definitely take lessons from Gaily.

This review is for myself and my daughter who are both taking lessons with Theresa. We give Theresa S. 5 stars each for being a great teacher and 5 stars for her location being very good for us. In addition, she made us feel very comfortable as if we had known her a long time. Her passion for her music and love of teaching makes her very enjoyable to be with. When we hit a bad note, her enthusiasm and the way we kept moving forward, I found, made us strive harder to get it right. We are both looking forward to many weeks under her direction.

What can I say? She is amazing. She is so tuned into what is going on with her students. Great teaching skills, she knows her craft, and her personality lets you know right away that it is going to be a relaxed pleasant stress free atmosphere that creates the perfect environment to learn. She is patient and is a joy to be around. My whole attitude has been changed from I wonder if is possible for me to learn to play the violin, to I am so excited at the fact that in time, that I actually will be proficient at playing. For that I am so thankful!
