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) guitar, 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 wel
l, 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!

Octavio M. Houston, TX

About Octavio

I have been teaching voice for 7 years and my beginner students are already singing their own gigs. I have had only one advanced student in singing and in 2010 he got the zarzuela prize in the most prestigious opera competition in the world "Placido Domingo´s Operalia). I can teach in Spanish, English and Italian. and for voice I specialize in opera and mariachi music. In guitar as well as in Piano I only teach beginners. *** Lesson Details *** For voice I only take students from 15 years old and on. This is only because the children's voice is very delicate and I think it requires a teacher who specializes in children for it is a big responsibility. Once the puberty voice change is gone: this is my field of expertise. with great discipline and a huge desire of success, a student ...

Mr. Octavio knows how to motivate a child. My son gets easily distracted with telling stories, etc and Mr. Octavio is able to get him to focus so well. He has an excellent combination of firmness with motivation. Plus he really knows how to get my 8 year old to understand lessons. Highly recommend!

Harold C. Houston, TX

About Harold

I love teaching, and strive to ensure that each student meets his/her personal goals. My lesson environment is relaxed; I feel that if the student cannot get a little fun out of it, something is missing. I do, however, expect my students to practice and to pay attention. I enjoy teaching beginners, particularly young (8-15 year olds) children/teens. A beginner has no bad habits which need to be broken. Adults and experienced players are also welcome. I have particular expertise in jazz harmony, theory & improvisation. I teach the Lydian Chromatic Concept, among other improvisational methodologies. Experience: 1975-1978 Berklee College of Music, Boston MA Majored in composition & arranging. Studies with Russ DiFilipis and Bill Bresnahan. ...

Patient and very encouraging

Harold from day one has been great. He understands the difficulties in learning to play a music instrument. He gives you enough material to practice and master before the next lesson and makes you accountable for it. So great balance for a teacher that actually cares for his students. Not to much but enough that you see progress in learning how to play the guitar.

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.

I am 3 lessons in, and I am very satisfied with the pace we are taking the lessons and the advice I am receiving for my music career. I like to cover a lot of material in lessons and in homework and we are keeping busy as I like. If you're serious about music, you will probably like Troy as your instructor.
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, ...
