Sharon S.

Fort Worth, TX

About Sharon

I have a diverse, mixed-up, wonderful background. I have wanted to do something with music and performance since I was 3-years-old. I have been able to foster that goal through work in the professional film and television industry as well as professional theater (and no, the word is not misspelled despite what spell-check would have you believe and I would love to explain why.). However, my greatest love has always been teaching. My education includes training in theater, film, television, music, voice, and communication. I received my BA in Fine Arts and Humanities from the University of
Nebraska at Kearney and my MS in Communication Studies at Texas Christian University. Most recently I worked as the director of the performance studies program at a local charter school, using music and theater to reduce communication anxiety in students. I am a member of the the Texas Music Teachers Association and attend frequent training and events to keep my skills current. My greatest teachers, however, have always been my students!

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are as various as the students who take them. Just like no two students are alike no two lessons are either. My lessons are designed around the students goals and desires. I use modern technology as well as classical training techniques to help my students become the best that they can be. I use a variety of different curriculum depending on what best meets the needs of the individual student. Growth is a constant goal as we work together, student and teacher, to take the student from where they are to where they want to be. Lessons are full of "aha" moments as we work to not only understand the how but also the why behind everything that we learn.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Small room(10X12), piano and electric keyboard, computer, iPad, mirror, iGallop, CD/iPod Player.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect music students to have a keyboard/piano for home use as well as purchase their own books and/or sheet music. I provide computer equipment when applicable and other outreach tools.

*** Specialties ***
I use the classical approach for singing.
I teach quasi-method acting.

Sharon is awesome!

I can't say enough great things about Sharon. Her teaching style is great and she gets through to my daughter like no other instructor ever has. Emma has landed more call backs than ever before. She also had her first ever principal role with a solo singing part using an audition piece that Sharon chose and helped her prepare. Emma has improved vastly and she really enjoys her lessons with Sharon. We give her an A +++.

Ms. Sharon is an AMAZING teacher!!!

My younger siblings and I have been taking lessons with Ms. Sharon for 8 years in vocal, piano, acting, and speech. With Ms. Sharon's aid I qualified to nationals in speech, and have been in numerous plays. Ms. Sharon pushs all her students hard so they can accomplish their goals and achieve their dreams. Sometimes it we have to do some hard things but, In the end it is worth every drop of hard work! My siblings and I love Ms. Sharon and will take lessons from her for as long as we can!

Robert M.

Fort Worth, TX

I enjoy sharing the necessary knowledge of music theory and history as it applies to all music forms. Luckily, i find teaching music theory through playing and improvising is best without having to be bore down with too much reading and text.

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.

Heidi S.

Fort Worth, TX

I teach a course at Tarrant County College called "Fundamentals of Music" that I also like to teach to in private lessons to those interested in knowing more about the technical side of music. This is for students who need more of an understanding of music so they can play their instrument better or this is for students who know nothing about music and want to spend some time learning the basics of music theory. Topics studied are treble clef, bass clef, scales, rhythm, terms, intervals, chords and chord progressions. 2 CDs test ear-training skills. The text is available at most music stores. Heidi S. studied Music Theory and Ear-Training as a graduate student at Baylor University. Text needed is “Alfred’s Essentials of Music Theory: A Complete Self-Study Course for All Musicians (Workbook includes volumes 1-3 and 2 CDs)

LK F.

Fort Worth, TX

I have been a teacher privately and a University professor for over 20 years. I like teaching theory as a language! We hear it, see it and speak it! I apply elements of contemporary and classical music to all we do. We focus on composition, ear training and music literacy.

About LK

Www.lkfletcher.com
I am a singer-pianist-actor Or a pianist-singer-actor. :-)
I have a bachelors degree in voice performance and a minor in piano and theater.
I have a masters degree in voice as well as a second masters in piano literature.
i have a certificate in comedy improvisation from Second City and am a professional actor. I am the owner and senior talent agent of a large talent agency in the DFW area.
My post graduate work is in vocal pedagogy.
I have been a professional teacher and performer for over 20 years.
I own and manage a professional talent agency in the DFW area.
My
students come in every model imaginable - and I wouldn't have it any other way. Raw beginner or veteran actor or musician, professional recording artist, College music major or American Idol wannabe.

The arts are such a great language for communicating. I grew up with two parents who were professional musicians (mom is a concert pianist) and I also raised 3 children who are professional musicians. We made music our native language in our home. We all have the ability to speak music when it is spoken to us. I don’t ever remember not playing the piano. I started winning piano competitions in high school. I minored in piano, and then did additional post graduate work in piano. I “speak” piano. It has served me so well as a teacher, composer, opera coach. It is really a gateway to understanding all other instruments. The same scenario with my singing.

I began my professional career as an opera singer which has taken me around the world. I have premiered works by Leonard Bernstein and Samuel Adler in addition to principal roles and concert work with Pittsburgh Opera, The Pittsburgh Symphony, Dayton Opera, the Tuscia Opera Festival and hundreds of professional engagements. I have also had the wonderful opportunity to belt the National Anthem for several major league teams in a television appearance- and has done so on multiple occasions. (Pittsburgh Pirates, Pittsburgh Penguins, Pittsburgh Steelers, Cincinnati Reds) I am passionate about vocal jazz and musical theater and am frequently found as a performer in various national and regional venues. Feature concert works include PBS (Gershwin in Concert) as well as featured solo concert works (Pergolesi Stabat Mater) on Italian Public TV.

My approach to music has always been to do what you love. I have never limited myself as a performer to a genre or an instrument. I have explored, applied myself to and enjoyed a very diverse musical career. If you have a passion for an instrument or style of music let's start there first... and then let's discover together all the things you do that uniquely define your musicianship style.

*** Lesson Details ***
Your lessons will always be engaging, challenging and fun!

I am very consistent in my approach to technique, my focus on goals and my demand for excellence. I constantly am working to access with you what your goals are and to provide feedback and support to help you achieve them.

I am very flexible in utilizing a wide variety of repertoire, resources etc. Your lessons are personalized to your skill set and your musical interests. I utilize audio and video recordings almost every week for all my students. I routinely promote and encourage my students to participate in a wide variety of competitions, recitals, workshops and master classes.

I have a very low turnover rate for students and a very high rate of students who have progressed to professional full time careers in music. Students like being a part of my studio and really like the confidence they have in their music abilities in a very short period of time.

I do not use the same curriculum for all students, in face, each curriculum is customized for that student. The components are similar: technique, repertoire, theory, listening, composing, recording and performing.

You can expect the following:You will feel very encouraged and supported in your talent. You will have measurable improvement in your skills. You will have a personal advocate to encourage and direct you in finding and creating opportunities to succeed in your music personally, academically and professionally.

I can't wait to get started!

Carl W.

Fort Worth, TX

Basic and advanced music theory

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?
