Robert M.

Fort Worth, TX

About Robert

I am a Music EC-12 Certified Educator with a degree from The University of St. Thomas, pursuing a Masters of Music Education degree from Texans Christian University of which I will also be working as the Graduate Music Department Assistant. I am also teaching at the All Saints Catholic School as the youth choral director, bringing on the development of future music programs, ensembles, and curriculum at this growing institution.
My previous career role was in General Music for Stafford Elementary School in Stafford Municipal School District from 2011-2015. My education experience covers
many schools and programs in the Houston area, including various HISD schools as well as working for the University of St. Thomas Music Preparatory school as vocal, ukulele,bass guitar, music history/theory, and piano instructor.
My background in music is mostly vocal, working with choirs and ensembles my entire life. I have also spread my abilities to work with Bass Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Piano, ukulele, and voice. I have many experiences with different genres such as American Folk Music, Jazz (Early to Fusion), and contemporary Rock/Pop, World Music, Christian/Worship/Catholic Liturgy, Rn'B, and Country music.
As an Music Educator, I have the strengths of being a distinguished musician and Professional educator which provides me with advanced knowledge in my field of study and interest, teaching for every age group from pre-school to Adult as well as influencing the fun, creativity, and expression of music no matter what the instrument.
I am also part of the online instructor team which is a great convenience for students who cannot easily travel, have limited schedules, or prefer the technological convenience!

*** Lesson Details ***
The music lessons will consist of a concise and strong education of their instrument as well as essential theory and history. I develop individual lesson plans for each student and subject, working on formative goals and objectives to work towards for every lesson and throughout the year. I look forward to being able to help students accomplish and enjoy their instrument, utilizing their interests and genres with a variety of texts and literature at many levels, looking to always expand my own collection to meet the needs of the students. I am comfortable with providing digital and paper materials as well as providing recordings and video studying resources with YouTube. I know in my heart and mind that I have something to offer to any student at any level in my studio, and, I am equally as passionate about providing an honest atmosphere for evaluation and positive criticism. With every lesson I always encourage brief reflection over the practice, study, and instruction, responding to every critical juncture that comes along the way. Being a certified educator and music instructor, I know that respect, understanding, honesty, human emotion, communication, and professionalism are the most critical components of a healthy Teacher-Student relationship.

Over 1200 Lessons taught with Takelessons.com since 2010

*** Studio and Resources ***
I have the necessary tools to operate in and out of my studio. Within my workplace I always have my electric keyboard, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass guitar, ukulele, music library, printer/scanner, recording equipment, full sound system with mixer amp, guitar amp, microphone and stand, tuner, music stands, iPad stand, and comfortable space and seating. I also have expanded my studio capabilities that is an entirely digitized database and curriculum. Starting in August 2015, I will also be able to provide lessons out of the Music Department of Texas Christian University.
I expect for the students to provide their own instrument so that they are able to practice at home. I operate on MAC OS and IPad systems that maximize the technological uses of my in home studio.
Be prepared to learn more than you ever anticipated as I provide many resources. I also push for supplemental music instruction within the lessons, adding basic training and music learning skills needed for accompaniment instruments such as the acoustic guitar, ukulele, and piano which allow for students to have a stronger understanding of their music.

My daughter and I both took lessons from Robert. He is a great teacher and a really great person. Robert impressed me immediately with his knowledge and proficiency on the guitar, bass, ukulele and piano, and his patience and understanding about how to teach music. Some music teachers are incredible musicians but not good teachers, but Robert is great at both.

I highly recommend Robert to anyone looking for a music teacher for any instrument, any age, any genre.

Carl W.

Fort Worth, TX

About Carl

As far back as I can remember I have always enjoyed performing music. I can remember during my elementary school years how I would play drums during church service. Some days I would sneak in my dad's closet to play his saxophone. I began learning how to play saxophone in middle school and by the time I was in high school I was learning piano, performing jazz, and composing music.
I went on to get a Bachelor of Music at the University of North Texas. I have been performing professionally for over 18 years. I also have taught band for 11 years in Dallas ISD. I enjoy teaching and mentoring ot
her up and coming musicians. It's a joy to see another world open up to them through music.
Through my warm and positive personality and experience as a certified music teacher and music performer, I understand how to meet the social and educational needs of each music student. I am well versed at solving problems and helping students thrive and reach their full potential. I think that I do this best by personalizing the instruction experience for each unique situation. I love to encourage students and help them discover the music in them.

*** Lesson Details ***
Like me, students can expect to enjoy the process. Students will discover that I am very encouraging during lessons. I keep everything upbeat and positive. I will help you come up with goals musically. I am very patient, all while coaching you so that you get positive results.

First lesson went very well. Carl is knowledgeable and quickly identified my son's abilities and the areas he needs to work on. He's encouraging and positive while keeping my son focused. This is not usually an easy task, but Carl's natural style made it effortless. After the disappoint I've had with a previous piano teacher, I believe I've found someone my son can relate with and will want to work hard for. Isn't that ability to inspire students to work hard and do their best the pinnacle of what we all want out of teachers?

Maryellen W.

Fort Worth, TX

About Maryellen

Hello Parents/Students,
Thank you for checking out my profile. I absolutely love playing, performing and teaching violin. My hope is to share this wonderful gift with you! I try to meet students where they are, whether you are a beginner or an advanced student. My goal is to progress you to your full potential in a positive, encouraging atmosphere. I enjoy teaching and I bring a lot of energy to the lesson -- I hope you will too, because together, we will make learning violin a great experience; one I hope you will cherish for a long time.
My approach to teaching is student specific.
I know everyone learns differently and at their own pace. My hope is to inspire and challenge you to reach your full potential, while applauding your achievements along the way. I have a great sense of humor and a genuine interest in each student I teach.
To let you know a little about me, I began studying violin at the age of seven, progressing quickly through the Suzuki Method repertoire. I played with Shinichi Suzuki on a concert when he came to Knoxville, Tennessee to celebrate his birthday. I competed at state level, receiving no less than superior ratings and winning best violinist in the state of Tennessee. I went on to take from international professionals, Patricio and Jacinto Cobos of Chile; Alan Lieb, a protégé of Shinichi Suzuki, as he studied with him for years in Japan; the first chair violinist of the Memphis State Symphony, and Melvin Harrison of Texas Christian University.
Harrison encouraged me to become a teacher and I took a few courses at TCU in order to be certified as a Suzuki teacher in 1999.
I opened my home studio and by word of mouth, many schools in the Fort Worth area became interested in having me teach/coordinate violin programs for their fine arts programs. I taught for programs at All Saints Episcopal School, Fort Worth Country Day School, Fort Worth Academy of Fine Arts, Texas Elementary School of the Arts, Saintsville Preparatory Academy as well as taught and coordinated the Suzuki Program for Youth Orchestra of Greater Fort Worth. Many of my students have gone on to play in youth orchestras, several placing first chair.
My background involves about thirty years of playing/studying violin, as well as playing in the orchestra at Baylor University and performing at Bass Hall, here in Fort Worth. I am currently recording with a local artist and the album will be available the first of January 2014.
I look forward to working with you.

*** Lesson Details ***
My method is a combination of the Suzuki Method and a more traditional approach. I find the repertoire in Suzuki is excellent for foundation in position and technique, but I like to supplement sight reading by using level appropriate etudes from Wolfhart, scales from Craig Duncan's three octave studies of major, minor, melodic and harmonic, as well as several selections of duets that I find solidifies a student's confidence in playing in harmony with another. I tailor my style of teaching to each student, depending on temperament, level of skill and discipline. I like to meet students where they are and progress them at a challenging pace, consistent with their skill level and potential.
A lesson with me begins with review, warming up on pieces learned or, if the student is a beginner, learning position to facilitate correct finger placement for pitch and doing bow exercises structured to assure bow control. If the student has played before, we concentrate on warming up, but also try to add dynamics, style and musicality to their review piece, as I like them to be challenged even as we are beginning. Next, we would focus on their current piece. We talk about key signature, play the corresponding scale to get our "formula" for playing the piece in correct rhythm and pitch. Then we work on the current piece. The last few minutes I bring etudes into the mix and spend time progressing them in theory and sight reading. Each student must have a notebook to record our lesson notes and keep up with practice throughout the week, as I fix a chart for them to clarify. My lessons are taught in a positive manner, encouraging the student to progress at their own pace, but also challenging them to reach their full potential.
I encourage students to play music from every genre, as many of them want to see the practical application in their lives. We can rock out to the Beatles, Bonjovi or Taylor Swift, while also learning the technique in Bach, Mozart and Mendelsohn.
I prefer to teach lessons weekly (meaning having a lesson once a week) and not take students who want to come for one or two lessons.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a beautiful studio with a wonderful bay window. There is room for parents to relax on a comfortable couch and listen to the lesson. I have a piano in the studio, should we need accompaniment at any time. I provide a music stand as well. For some of the pop music, I provide an amplifier and a microphone that attaches to the violin.

*** Specialties ***
I teach a combination of traditional/Suzuki, incorporating three octave scales and exercises, etudes, repertoire from the Suzuki Method, while teaching the importance of position, technique, musicality, center pitch and performance.

Quamon F.

Fort Worth, TX

About Quamon

I've been playing saxophone for over 20 years and hold a degree in music performance. Throughout my career, I've had the privilege of traveling and performing as a professional along with being recognized for various awards for my improvisational and compositional skills. I've released 5 CD's of my own which showcase a lot of my original music. One of my targets in helping students is to help bring out what they already have inside their soul. I had great teachers that helped me to better express what I was hearing and imagining inside, and I want to pour into my students out of the abundance
of what I've received from my teachers in addition to my own personal experience in the area of music.

*** Lesson Details ***
I like to start out by breaking down how I look at music from the stand point of it having two sides, a technical side & a conceptual side.

The technical side deals with all of the mechanical things needed for one to have together to get around on the instrument first like, sound production, tone quality, scales, arpeggios, etc.

The Concept side deals with what music the student came up listening to from the stand point of what genre, what artists, what songs, etc. Then, I'll need to know what are the goals that are desired to be accomplished based on what the student projects conceptually by way of the artists that they like.

Then in future lessons we can break down the details on how to actually get to the desire goal of the student.
