Hello! I am looking forward to help you learn piano! I have been playing for 12 years. I play the piano mostly as a teaching tool, showing students how to play and read music at the same time. I am very relaxed as a teacher and find that having fun playing is important than just sitting there going through the motions. I hope to help your student out and enjoy the world of music!

I have my own piano at home for lessons to take place on.

About Sutton
Hello!
My Name is Sutton, I graduated from the University of North Texas with a Bachelor in Music Degree. I teach Music at a public school working with 5th and 6th graders. I always strive to have Music be fun and enjoyable, while it also be a challenge so growth can take place. I am very gentle spirit with a humorous side.

I've been playing Saxophone for 23 years now and studied the instrument at UNT as my profession. I've played various styles with Classical being my strong suit and Jazz being second. I focus on Alto Saxophone but I also have a Tenor and Soprano and can teach those. I
can Teach Baritone Saxophone as well but I do not have one on me to help students along with playing. I've played for the UNT concert band and have done various solos and quartets.

I've played the Piano for 12 years now and have taught it the most. I focus on the aspects of Music while teaching the skill of the instrument. I have played it mostly for fun and for teaching, no major performances.

I have been singing for 15 years and currently teach the choirs at my public School. I focus on good singing style to help students project and find tonal centers.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the students to own their own instruments or will learn more about their instruments. I can help guide students to what instruments to buy or rent if they wish.

*** Specialties ***
Classical saxophone, Voice and Piano. I also do Beginner Flute, Clarinet, and Oboe.

Sutton is a great teacher. He's been teaching me piano for almost a month now, and I feel like I've made important improvents. We started 3 weeks ago and I did not know how to play or read sheet, basically, we started from 0. He knows how to teach people, and he also understands that piano takes time to learn. Great guy, I highly recommend.

Yana Giles has been the best piano teacher I have ever taken lessons from out of all 5 teachers I've had. She is patient, encouraging and motivational through every piece she assigns me. My appreciation for music grew an enormous amount after beginning lessons with her. My hand technique improved, as well as performance ability. I recommend her to anyone looking to learn the piano! Even if you have already learned the piano and wish to improve somehow, Yana will show you a new understanding of music that you never thought you could have.

Great teacher

My teacher is very knowledgeable, yet she is able to teach beginner music. She has not only taught me to read notes, she has told me a lot of history about the instrument and lots of music. I think she is the very best!!!!

I teach classical piano. I include theory and ear training with piano lessons. I use some music games and play activity for young students. I have some materials that I provide but books are purchased by the parents.

About Marilyn
Music is soothing to the soul. It can calm us when anxious. It can teach young children focus, concentration and improve fine motor skills. I feel classical piano is a basic foundation to learn many instruments and types of music. I include theory and ear training with piano lessons. My goal is to try and turn on the student's love for music so that he or she wants to spend time at the piano at home improving skills.
