Music Lessons in Houston, TX

In Texas, Austin usually gets the recognition for musical talent. However, many successful bands and artists hail from Houston, including Beyonce, Blue October, Kenny Rogers, and Lyle Lovett. Houston is also host to a number of more extreme, experimental musical artists, from rappers to rockers.

All musicians have one thing in common: they all had to learn to play their instruments. Nobody just picks up a guitar or a bass or a set of drum sticks and immediately knows what to do. Here at TakeLessons we offer quality lessons for a wide array of instruments, including (but not limited to) guit
ar, bass, drums, piano and violin. If you want to play it, we’ll help you find a local teacher to help you learn!

Our Houston music lessons are not just limited to Houston, either. We have many music teachers in the surrounding areas as well, including Spring, Tomball and Katy. You can find teachers near you by using our easy online search tool. Simply enter your city and the instrument you want to learn! And with our 100% Money Back Guarantee, you can take your first lesson risk-free if you change your mind. Why wait? Sign up today and find a teacher who is right for you!

Aleena W.

Houston, TX

About Aleena

I've been teaching private lessons since 2010 and have loved helping my students learn to sight read, perform and acquire new skills and self confidence. I studied privately and then earned a Masters in Fine Art in 2004. I'm an encouraging, flexible and light-hearted individual and my teaching style includes enjoyment, skill and appreciation. I look forward to helping you reach your goals! I encourage anyone to learn and play any genre they desire. I was trained in classical music which I find is a wonderful springboard to any type of music. I incorporate basics that all students will benefit from and then direct them towards their goal and them help them enjoy! enjoy! enjoy!!!!!!

Aleena is an amazing piano instructor.. She has truly been a blessing to me abd my daughter's life and teaching her how to play all types of music including classical music and her favorite song, "Fur Elise!" Aleena goes over and beyond to make sure her students are the "best of the best" and will not let them settle for anything less than that! I would recommend her to anyone who has a desire or passion for playing the piano and who loves the general aspect of music.. Aleena is patient, understanding, caring to all of her students and is always willing to help them reach their ultimate goals! Thanks so much for being an inspiration to me and my daughter and for helping her to create her musical path and finding a creative niche that she enjoys and wishes to pursue!

About Shakeatha

I have sung for as long as I could speak! I hail from a family of recording artists and have graced the stage since the age of 4. During high school, I learned to read music and took piano lessons. This peaked my interest in wanting to learn the fundamentals of music so I decided to major in it in college. I then went on to Xavier University, where I received a Bachelor of Arts in Music. While at Xavier I participated in many productions. I also received a Xavier University Music Scholarship for four years. I have noted my experience in detail: Xavier University of Louisiana-Senior Recital; Xavier University Student Recital – “Opera under the Stars”, April 2008; Xavier University Concert Choir Midwest Tour – Soloist for “Amazing Grace”, April 2008; Xavier University of Louisiana ...

Shakeatha is great! After just a few lessons, I felt like I was improving. I like that she stresses proper vocal technique and breathing as well, which are very important. She's also highly versatile, so no matter what style you want to learn, whether its pop, jazz, soul, or classical, she's got you covered. She really encouraged and challenged me, reawakening my love for singing and music overall. I highly recommend her!

Sara J.**

Tomball, TX

About Sara

Born in Washington DC, I have been singing and studying voice since the age of 4. Starting out as a Broadway style belter and transitioning to opera mid-way through University, I have experienced many different vocal techniques and teachers. My voice was not an easy one to train and it took many years of searching to find a healthy technique that worked for me. For this reason I am dedicated to understanding each students vocal differences and help them reach the height of their potential. As a teacher I tailor my lessons to each individual student's needs and wants. Together we work to find a healthy and sustainable singing technique for different styles of music. I also focus on all aspects of being a performer and will improve consistency, musicianship and dramatic ...

Troy is the best vocal instructor ever! I feel like I hit the jackpot in finding him as my coach. He is extremely knowledgeable and great at communicating concepts that might otherwise be difficult to understand. My vocal technique and confidence has improved so much since I started taking lessons from Troy in September 2014. I was so impressed with my progress with Troy that I have now expanded my lessons to twice a week. Troy is great at making a plan to help me achieve my goals, and he is right with me every step of the way. I am so grateful to have an instructor that not only helps me get better, but also has an inspiring attitude to share a love for music.

Andrew D.

Houston, TX

About Andrew

Music is my life. As cheesy as that phrase goes, for me, it holds true. I'm Andrew. Everything I do and have been doing has been geared towards music. I've been in one working/gigging band or other without break for the past 8 years. I began intensely learning to play guitar at the age of 9 and have not stopped. The second I started learning I knew that that was what I wanted to do. Fast forward to now, and here I am loving every minute of it. I took lessons of my own as a kid, which helped shape me greatly. I then picked up bass at the age of 13. I've taught personalized lessons for over 5 years now without a single complaint. At this point in my musical career, the majority of my experience and attitude has come from being "in the field". I've played South By South West, ...
