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.
Jordan D. Grapevine, TX

I am an experienced, educated, professional guitar player with a background in rock, blues, worship, jazz, classical, contemporary, country, and folk guitar. I have played/led for numerous worship teams, independent bands, and ensembles which are detailed in my "about me" section. I graduated Magna-Cum Laude from UTA with a bachelors degree in Music-Media with guitar as my primary performing instrument. I am the worship leader for Living Life Church, a private guitar instructor, an intern under Brad Nyght at The Bakery Studio, and a freelance musician/producer/composer.

Today, I am the worship leader for Living Life Church, a private guitar instructor, a freelance producer, film-composer, performing musician and, of course, instructor! I have a passion for a wide variety of styles of music. For several years, I was the lead guitarist, singer, and songwriter for multiple independent rock bands, the most notable being an indie psychedelic band called Tod The Fox.

I first picked up a guitar roughly 50 years ago and tried to teach myself how to play with a chord book. I learned a lot of chords and songs from sheet music, and learned to do a fair job of playing by ear. But I was never really satisfied, and only picked up my guitar occasionally over the past 30 years. I retired recently and decided I wanted to learn to play the correct way. I did an online search for teachers in my area and found Jordan who lives close by. Jordan asked what my interest was, and I told him I wanted to learn the fundamentals and build from there. We started off with a song I was interested in, and then began working on the basics of music theory, reading and identifying notes on sheet music, and learning to play all the different scales while identifying and calling out the notes. I have a long way to go, and my older hands don't always cooperate like I want them to; but I'm also having the time of my life. I look forward to my weekly lessons and enjoy the time I spend with Jordan.

I purposely waited to review Jordan until almost a full semester of lessons. My husband and I wanted to see how his personality would 'play out' over our time knowing him, how our daughter would respond to learning at such a young age (5), and how much progress either of them would make with one another. So to answer concern #1: I had my concerns that we would see progress with Jordan't laid-back style but he has been an answer to our prayers. He has had much going on personally with work and a move and yet he stayed steadfast and awesome through it all! Regarding concern #2: in spite of the minimalist attention span of a 5 year old, Jordan has managed to engage our daughter in a realistic fashion and she has grown to eagerly look forward to practicing what she has learned - IN A SEMESTER! - and as a piano player myself, I could not be more pleased with her progress thus far. Concern #3: Jordan seems to have captured the tricky concept of accountability for a 5 year old and our daughter actually respects Mr. Jordan. We have been so pleased and look forward to continuing our lessons.

My son Nick studied trumpet exclusively with James at least four years. James did a consistently fantastic job of working with Nick. James friendly personality and rapport helped keep Nick positive and engaged throughout many years of hard work. He hosted numerous recitals which allowed his students to prepare and perform more challenging pieces for an audience. James wide breadth of musical styles afforded Nick the opportunity to learn many types of music as well as discover where his own interests are.

Highly recommended!

I met James through my school band's trumpet students who took privately from him during the summer. After several years of hearing the same results in my students - beautiful trumpet tone, good range, increasing love of the instrument and then the student's parents deciding to have their children take from him year around, I decided to go take a couple of lessons to learn how he gets such consistent results.

I found myself getting a fresh wind to take back to my brass students and my bands at all levels (I teach 4-12th grade band). James is an encourager, very patient, loves music and is great with all levels of students. He reminded me why I went into the music education profession in the first place and helped me remember to relax and enjoy playing/teaching.

Some of my students have continued to take from James via Skype and are very satisfied with it. I'm looking forward to his next visit to Illinois to take a lesson or two and get some new ideas to take back to my band program!

Years ago, I heard my first band would be featured in the local paper and I was so excited to read the article. I hurried home to read it and found that the short blurb was far from complimentary.

However, I have learned how to handle criticism and continued to make music that makes me happy. In the time since then, I have been lucky enough to receive both criticism and positive revie
