Excellent Teacher

I am an older student and I started to learn to play the piano more than a year ago under a different teacher. I started with Eugene about 4 months ago. I was struggling with the piano previously. But after just 2 lessons with Eugene, I found myself playing confidently. Eugene explains so clearly and everything makes sense to me now. I enjoy practicing everyday now. He is excellent teacher, patient, and very professional. He is always on time.

Estela K. Houston, TX

My goal is to help you create a beautiful music by focusing on the foundations of tone, techniques, and practice. Beginners will learn to read music and develop good tone and rhythm. Intermediates will work on tone, vibrato, technique, and expression. At each lesson, I will show you what you need to do and give you the responsibility of practicing at home. You will also work on bowing/finger exercises, music activities, and improvisation so you can play along with any piece of music.

I have over 10 years experience teaching private violin lessons to individuals and small chamber groups. I have played violin for over 22 years including orchestras, string ensembles, church worship bands, and weddings and special occasions. I have an undergraduate degree is in psychology with a minor in violin through Louisiana State University, and my master's from the University of Texas at Austin is in education.

Parent feedback

My son started playing violin as a part of the 5th grade music program they have at school. Estela is great at teaching him the very important basic skills that they couldn't focus on at school and then build on those skills further. After two month we can see a significant improvement in many aspects of his playing but, most importantly, he likes to come to these lessons because they are fun for him.

Great teacher

My daughter has been taking flute lessons from Shannon for 2-3 years. She really enjoys her time with Shannon and has learned so much! Shannon does a wonderful job of creating chamber music groups with recitals, in which my daughter was able to take part - definitely nothing that would have been offered in her school at this level! We are very lucky to have found Shannon!

Cameron K. Houston, TX

About Cameron

As a violin and viola instructor, my goal is to give my students lessons that are as fun and productive as possible. I teach my students all the essential technical and musical principles which help them to play the violin expressively, prevent them from developing harmful habits and help them reach their full potential. I do not use an exact method or course, but rather teach each student according to his/her particular needs. I teach beginner through advanced level. I have been privileged to study violin with some of the most respected violin teachers in the US. Many of my teachers were graduates of Juliard and other top music schools where they studied with some of the most famous violin teachers of the 20th century including Ivan Galamian and Josef Gingold. I have also studied ...

My son took Viola lessons from Mr. Keys for a year. He thoroughly enjoyed learning from him. His dedication to proper technique was excellent. He is very knowledgeable about the instrument and provided plenty of opportunity for my son to grow in his ability.

Thank you, Cameron.
Rebecca L. Houston, TX

Rather than music being just a definition term, music has a broader meaning that many people don't realize. I believe music itself is not the only thing people can learn from lessons alone, but the ability to concentrate, develop characteristics such as patience, and dedication. That being, music teaches very important life skills to carry. Being in the music industry, I've aspired that teaching is not always expecting perfect results in terms of performance, but the perfectionist results of having integrity, in addition to having a genuine passion for music itself.

About Rebecca

Hi! My name is Rebecca and I can't wait to meet you! I started learning the piano when I was 5, violin and viola when I was 7, and have taught all these instruments since I was in middle school (over 10 years!). I love helping my students achieve their goals and fulfill their passion. . I received my bachelor's degree in music performance at Rice University, and I am currently back at Rice for master's degree. I grew up in Taiwan, and I am fluent in Mandarin Chinese. I would love to help anyone learning a second language and tell you more about the culture! I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

How to Play the Violin Like Lindsey Stirling
The inimitable Lindsey Stirling has shaken the world’s concept of classical music.
