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 ...

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.

Ben H.

Euless, TX

Music theory is very important to me in understanding the guitar and music. Took numerous classes in music theory and scored a perfect score in all levels.

About Ben

Hello, my name is Ben and GUITAR IS MY BUSINESS...AND MY BUSINESS IS GOOD so please consider me. I've been playing guitar for over 18 years and have been in playing bands for 12 years. Recently after the band broke up, I decided to further my education and went to Musicians Institute in Hollywood California. There I was taught by the best guitar players in the world. Marty Friedman, Paul Gilbert, Scott Henderson, Tommy Emmanuel and Johnny Hiland were just a few of the great players who gave clinics there. I received a degree in Guitar Performance and the knowledge I received there made me UNDERSTAND the mystery that is the guitar. I can teach Rock/Metal, Country (lead and rhythm), Blues, Alternative, Acoustic, Classical, Chord Melody, Melodic Soloing, Twang, Chords, Scales,

Ben was a wonderful teacher

Ben taught my 2 sons guitar and they really enjoyed it! They still play today and they took lessons over 2 years ago! Ben was always on time and was always great with my small sons.

Ben is very knowledgable of music and the guitar

Ben was always punctual, he made the lessons not only very comprehensive but also fun. My son always looked forward to his lessons. He has learned a lot and we are going to get him a new guitar because he has tried so hard.

Robert M.

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.

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 other 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 ...

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?

In the three months I've taken lessons, I've had a great experience with Carl and his methods. Every lesson is different and interesting. And when I bring a question to class Carl develops that into a lesson, which keeps the material even more interesting. I'm very happy with the results I'm seeing and would recommend Carl to any aspiring musician.
