Blake B.

Fort Worth, TX

I received my BA in music (focus on guitar) at Southwestern University in Georgetown, TX. We were required to progress through 5 semesters of music theory classes and music literature classes. We covered pretty much everything the western side of the world has to offer musically.

If you are thinking about carrying on with music later in life, an early education in music theory will help you tremendously! I wish I had started earlier.

About Blake

Hello!

I offer lessons to the north Dallas/Ft. Worth area. I received my Bachelor's degree in Music specializing in classical guitar in 2011. In addition, 10 years of experience playing rock, blues, folk, and alternative styles with electric and acoustic guitars allows me to confidently enjoy playing and teaching these styles as well. I can teach you or your child the skills needed to pursue hobbies or serious musical goals! Personal enjoyment, gigs, performances, recitals, university auditions, or just playing for your friends. My mission is to help you to achieve your own unique goals in
an encouraging environment where you or your child feel free to ask questions and set the pace of the lesson. When you meet me it will be clear immediately that I'm not an intimidating person and I honestly want you or your child to feel comfortable and enjoy learning from me. If you are a beginner, great! No bad habits yet. If you already have experience, great! We'll work on taking your playing to a higher level.

Some of my accomplishments include:

Performing in Master Classes for virtuosic classical guitarists such as Michael Partington, Andrew Zohn and Richard Savino.

Performing solo and group repertoire at a concert level with classical guitar.

I am well versed in western music theory ranging from Ancient to Modern.

Passed examinations in sight reading, transposition, scales and performance for guitar, percussion and keyboard instruments.

Various band gigs with electric and steel string acoustic guitar. I also played drum set. Not at the same time.

*** Lesson Details ***

No two of my lessons are exactly the same. Each lesson is tailored and modified to meet the needs and desires of each student. I want to figure out who you are and where you want to go musically and use that as a foundation to build lessons on. I teach with a laid back style and never yell or scold. The more comfortable you feel during the lesson the more we can get accomplished. The perfect lesson environment is one in which you or your child feel free to ask questions and play an active role in the learning experience.

I use the Aaron Shearer and Suzuki method books, primarily, for classical guitar lessons. These books help you develop your technique and theory. At the same time, we integrate various songs and pieces at your discretion that are appropriate for the current level of playing and that appeal to you personally. For rock, blues, folk, country, etc. I have various technique books to get us moving along until we know which direction you want to go.

*** Studio Equipment ***
private studio w/ 2 classical guitars, an electric guitar, an acoustic guitar, a computer with internet access and printer, box w/ amp, and seating for parents

The short of this review is that Blake is an excellent instructor. Having received a guitar as a gift I came to him with next to zero knowledge. He took the time with me to build the solid fundamentals and work up from there. In conjunction with working with Blake on my technique and further practice on my own time I was able to play with quite a bit more confidence than before. His knowledge on the guitar is quite apparent. My only regret is that I cannot continue the lessons as I am having to move out of state but I would highly recommend anyone looking to pickup the guitar to consider him.

I am an older student who has played another stringed instrument for many years. Learning classical guitar is a challenge for me. Blake is patient, a good listener, and has figured out my learning pattern/learning curve. I am excited to be making good progress studying with Blake.

Quality Instructor

His teaching my 7 year old daughter the guitar was impressive to say the least. It is a shame that she lost interest in playing because she didn't want to put in the work. Her lack of passion has no reflection on his professionalism and teaching, I highly recommend him.

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!

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!!!!

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?
