Allison V. Houston, TX

About Allison

My musical journey began with piano lessons at age 8 followed by flute lessons the next year. My passion for the flute grew as I played in school bands from 4th to 12th grade. I attended Southwestern University from 2009 to 2013 and graduated with a BM in Music Performance on the flute (magna cum laude) and gave private lessons throughout most of my college career with great success. I have performed in several ensembles including the flute choir, wind ensemble and orchestra at SU, as well as The Gilbert and Sullivan Society of Austin Orchestra in their production of The Mikado. I currently play with the Shimmer Flute Choir and Sounds of Silver Flute Quartet, and am an active member of the Houston Flute Club. Although classically trained I also enjoy classic rock and appreciate music ...

I learned a lot in my time with Allison. I loved how flexible and understanding she was with my busy schedule and I appreciated the freedom we had during the lesson. I feel that Allison has a good understanding of different techniques and implements them nicely while making the lesson feel stress free and open. Allison is GREAT!

Allison is a great teacher and helped my break down difficult passages into more manageable pieces so that I wouldn't get frustrated and overwhelmed. I always learn a lot when I have a lesson.

Debbie "Debra" T. Houston, TX

About Debbie (Debra)

Having been a public school teacher, as well as a private and group piano instructor, I've observed how differently students "digest" information, and piano lessons are a great way to make use of different learning styles. I emphasize knowing HOW to practice before you leave so you'll be successful at home, and you are welcome to contact me with problems during the week so you don't lose a week in progressing with your lessons. I've had students send a video of a tricky section to ask for alternative fingering, and photos to clarify how they are reading something!! I also perform with an orchestra and want to feel proficient among my peers, so I really know how it feels to make a mistake in front of everyone. I am here to help you feel proud of your progress. My primary teaching ...

Debbie T., my piano teacher

I am a senior who decided to learn the piano. This is something I have wanted to do all my life. I began with a private teacher and studied with him for 6 months. Although he was a very good instructor something was missing. I searched the internet and found TakeLessons.com and found Debra's profile. I have been studying under Debbie for one year as of January, 2014. She is the absolute BEST! I have only praise for her. She is patient, kind, funny, very very knowledgable, She is professional, energetic, and flexible. I just can't say enough good things about her. I see our relationship lasting for many years to come! I just love her!

What an enjoyable teacher!

Both of my boys find her lessons to be fun. She is full of knowledge and experience. They have learned so much from Ms. Tibbetts in a few months. We look forward to working with her for a long while.

Best piano teacher I have ever had!

I started taking lesson this year and I love it! This is my third time trying different places and teachers, I am very picky and have high expectations. I find Debbie's knowledge about music and piano amazing! She is the most patient teacher I have ever had, I have a hectic schedule and no matter how often I have to change lessons or come unprepared she always is understanding and encouraging. And her personality is just so warming, she is full of praise even at times when I know I don't deserve it, yet she strives to push you forward, if one way doesn't work for you she will find a way that you are comfortable with so you continue to progress. She knows just about EVERYTHING there is to know about reading and playing music, even the Italian versions. I love the personal feel of being at her home studio, and would recommend her to friends and family, I look forward to many more lessons in the future !
Jennifer G. Spring, TX

About Jennifer

I have been teaching piano to students of all ages since 1992, both to individual students and groups. I taught with the Music Learning Center of Michigan. I have been a music teacher and choir director for a number of years as well. For eight years I have played the organ and piano for Church worship. *** Lesson Details *** Music should be appreciated and enjoyed. Lessons should be fun without sacrificing quality. This is the approach I offer to students. I focus on teaching independence through music theory and sight reading. Performance is an important part of learning so I provide two recitals every year- one for Christmas and another in the spring, at the end of the school year. *** Studio Equipment *** Separate room dedicated to teaching with upright piano, also has digital ...

Carter N. Katy, TX

About Carter

I've loved music since I was able to walk. When I was 5 or 6, I would listen to my mother's stereo system, with Jim Croce playing on the 8-Track tape deck.....(ok, so I'm aging myself a little bit). I would lay on the floor in between the speakers which were turned inward toward my ears. I could lay there for hours, tapping my toes to "Bad Bad Leroy Brown", "Roller Derby Queen", "You Don't Mess Around with Jim", and many others. I would also listen to the Beatles, Seargent Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band", and "Revolution" and be completely taken away. I didn't realize it then, but what captivated me were the songs that were written to tell stories, and the music that brought the stories to life. As I grew into my early teens, I got into Kiss, Alice Cooper, Rush, Ted Nugent, and Jimi ...

My son started lessons when he was 8 on acoustic guitar. I randomly chose a teacher and was hoping for a teacher who could be patient yet firm and be able to inspire my son. Mr Carter is the best teacher I could have asked for - he is all that and more. Quite often, I listen to the teacher and student conversation with admiration as they are discussing ideas and Mr. Carter's openness to receiving ideas on a tune or what Ashwin wants to learn. The frank and open discussion results in motivating the young student as they feel a sense of importance and builds confidence (sometimes too much!). At the same time, when the situation calls for it, Mr. Carter is firm and points out when Ashwin hasn't practiced or not done well and that pushes him to do better. I look forward to many years ahead.

Leni B. Magnolia, TX

About Leni

BA in Music, composition and conducting from Hunter College (City University of New York) Diploma from the Conservatoire de Fontainebleau, France Studied with Louise Talma, Jacques Louis Monod, Nadia Boulanger Lessons are about learning to make music, not endless scales and arpeggios which so often lead to pain and injury. Sight reading, theory and interpretation are strong elements from the beginning. An overwhelming percentage of young, enthusiastic and talented children are discouraged early and give up the piano because they do not enjoy their lessons. Music is one of life's great joys. It should be fun. For the intermediate, and even the advanced, student, it is critical that much more attention be paid to the musicality of the playing and the understanding of the music.

Mr. Leni B. is second to none. He holds a BA degree in music, piano, composition and conducting from Hunter College, the largest college in The City University of New York and obtains a Diploma from the Conservatoire de Fontainebleau, France, I have no doubt about his talents and expertise. His knowledge is tremendously fabulous. What a true musician he is! As an adult, I wonder if Mr. Leni B. would be patient with me. The answer is yes. He patiently teaches me, and corrects my hands using the Taubman Approach to avoid chronical hand, wrist and muscle injuries. I am incredibly grateful to have him for my piano teacher. His passion and dedication are beyond excellent and have been transferred to me. I have brought home with a lot of inspiration after each lesson. I love his analysis and interpretation of each beautiful piece of music. The atmosphere he creates is lovely, friendly, welcoming and open. It is fun to study under his supervision. His encouragement is another key for me to practice the piano everyday. I am absolutely proud of him. It is even multipled when I have figured out he has more talents than just music and piano which are already amazing. Mr. Leni B. is the best teacher because he teaches from the heart not from the book. He is too good to be true.

I highly recommend Mr. Leni B. to anyone who wants to take piano lessons for fun or seriously.

An Amazing Teacher and Musician

I have had Leni as a teacher, and a friend, for several years. I am amazed at how far I have come, and I feel that the technique and the theory behind the methods he teaches are incredible and imperative to the progress I have made, both on the piano and in other areas of music. The atmosphere that he creates is a welcoming and stimulating learning environment. The Taubman technique that he teaches is understandable, helpful, and it is the most successful way to avoid long-term injury to the hands and wrists. I am incredibly grateful to him for his dedication and passion for his work and his students.
