Matt B. Denton, TX

About Matt

I love learning, and I love sharing and developing the tools for learning. I began as a self-taught pianist at age 12, and from ages 14 to the present I have had the experience of studying with some of the most phenomenal teachers of this generation. George Katz, former chair of the Drake University Piano Department and student of the legendary artists Alfred Cortot and Marguerite Long; Jerome Lowenthal, also a student of Cortot (and William Kapell) and former chair of the Julliard piano department, and Jose Feghali, winner of the 1985 Cliburn Gold Medal have been my most influential teachers. From them, I learned how to learn, how to teach, and how to teach learning, which I believe is the most important skill. As a winner of the 2000 Interlochen Concerto Competition, I had my ...

Great Instruction Technique

I've been working with Matt for a few months now and he has really helped me step up my understanding of best practices, chords / scales, music theory and improvisation techniques. I have been extremely impressed with the wealth of knowledge that he possesses. Definitely recommend him to anyone looking to enhance your piano playing abilities.

Excellent Singing Coach

Matt is a wonderful singing coach. He has a great understanding of music theory. He made me feel comforable right from the beginning, and I had not had a lesson in over 15 years. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Best teacher ever!

I've been taking lessons from Matt for a couple of years now and have performed in 2 recitals. The recitals Matt offers are an excellent motivator for reaching goals and growing my skill level. I'm very pleased with my progress and so appreciate Matt's attention to detail and his encouragement.

In just the few lessons I've already had with Yajaira, I am already so much more confident with my voice and being able to project it. I love the way she teaches and how she starts out with the basics like breathing, but still finds a way to make it fun and encourage you! I would have never been able to learn as much from any choir instructor I've ever had! :)

Yajaira is an amazing teacher who takes the time to understand and identify with her students. Her ability to vary her teaching techniques based upon the changing needs and ability of her students is far beyond what I would have expected in a coach. As a beginner at 33, I was really concerned about being able to learn what most learn as children, but Yajaira began with the basics; breathing, control, all sorts of things I never associated with signing. Yajaira's enthusiastic, and encouraging attitude has helped and driven me to meet and by far exceed all of my expectations,

Yajaira has been my vocal coach for over a year, and I wouldn't trade the experience. I've learned so much in that time, and couldn't imagine going to another coach.

Jonathan M. Argyle, TX

About Jonathan

Music is what I breathe every day of my life! I grew up in Oklahoma in an average-sized city. Starting in 1st grade I pursued taking private piano lessons. Unlike most kids, I continued classical piano study throughout middle school and high school. In 2nd grade, the year after starting piano lessons, I pursued taking private trumpet lessons with the trumpet professor at the university in my city. Around age 9 I started private drum-set lessons, and age 14 picked up the acoustic guitar later followed by electric guitar. I just wanted to play ALL the instruments. After my 2nd year of high school, I decided to pursue independent study with an online accredited school, mainly for the reason of greater personal music study through the university. My trumpet professor asked if I’d like to ...

Music Theory
Exceptional teacher

I am an older non-musician in a household full of multi-talented musicians. I finally decided that I needed to at least receive some education in music performance and music theory just to keep up with my family. Jonathan has been the perfect instuctor for that! Not only has he explained the concepts of music theory in a logical and easy to understand way - he has made it challenging and exciting! I have begun trumpet lessons and I am progressing far faster than I thought possible. What a great instructor! I no longer consider myself a "non-musician."

Trumpet
Outstanding

I'm a trumpet beginner. I've tried taking lessons before but really went nowhere and it was a horrible experience. Jonathan has been very patient as he has moved me quickly and effectively through the basics of trumpet to where I now have a sense of pride in what I can do! I almost didn't give him a try but his experience and friendly picture convinced me to try it again. I'm so glad I did! I can't recommend this instructor more highly!

Great experience as a beginner

Jonathan is doing a great job teaching me from no knowledge at all. He's given me great exercises to increase my playing ability and is very patient when I don't understand or can't figure out how to play the notes.

I met Michael at a gig and was blown away by all the original material he wrote and played on guitar. In a couple of years of lessons I learned more technique and and music theory than I did after 20 years on my own. Michael is a world class player/composer and a very patient teacher. You can't find any better.

Michael isn't just a great teacher and amazing guitarist, but he's a crazy good composer as well, which is a skill that can be difficult to find among many music instructors these days. If you're looking to get started from scratch or are a more experienced guitarist looking to break into that next level of playing, Michael would be a great choice as he's the real deal for sure. Great guy too!

I had been playing for a long while and knew that If I was going to get better I needed to play and learn from someone way better than I.

Michael is that person! At first I thought I would be learning some cool licks and techniques and I did, but Michael gave me much more than that.

I didn't realize I was going to learn theory as well. I feel that he gave me a solid foundation to move forward.

Thanks to Michael H., I'm not a leaf in the wind any longer...Thanks Michael!!
