Priscilla M.

Mesquite, TX

About Priscilla

I love people of all ages. And I love helping them discover what beautiful things they can create in the world of music! Music is such a powerful way to express ourselves, and I love helping others learn how to do this and really enjoy it.

I have played piano since I was three. When I was able to read at age four, I began lessons, and the rest is history. I graduated from Wheaton College Conservatory of Music with a degree in Piano Performance and completed a Master's degree in Piano Performance at the University of Redlands. I love to perform, have written several songs, produced th
ree CD's all with original music that I perform, and have just completed a fourth CD featuring major classical piano works arranged with favorite hymns. I have also written a musical and am in the process of having it produced.

I have sung in choirs of all types and accompanied them on the piano as well for many years. I have worked extensively in Musical Theater, serving both as Musical Director and Accompanist for shows such as Sound of Music, Annie, and many others.

I love seeing people get touched with music and love to help others create and perform music that really speaks to the heart. It's my passion. I teach all styles of music, and love teaching children, adults, and everything in between!

My goal for the students is for them to feel good about themselves as musicians and to be able to express themselves and reach the highest level of performance possible for them.
The students have the opportunity to perform regularly in recitals as well as other venues, and we have a lot of fun! Lessons are a great experience for us all.

*** Lesson Details ***
I use a standard curriculum for students that teaches the basic concepts of music and gives them creative pieces to use in the process. I expect my students to practice, and reward and encourage them to do so. I believe that positive affirmation is the best teaching tool, so I use that as my main basis for teaching, along with discipline and being challenged appropriately. I love helping people create, so my main goal for a piece is to help the student learn to perform it in the best way possible, with plenty of technique and lots of expression, to really make it their own so they and the audience can really enjoy it.

My students are usually ready to perform at least two or three major pieces of their level at the end of six months. I give them material to challenge them and encourage them to progress. Not too much, not too little! I teach self-confidence as one the biggest tools they can use to help themselves improve.

Come join us in our studio! We have a great time together discovering what we can create in the world of music.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I teach in my own private studio with an upright Weber piano excellent for teaching beginning to advanced piano skills and spacious room for voice lessons.

Priscilla is a very patient, motivating and kind teacher. I'm an adult student who had taken years of piano lessons in my youth. I already knew the basics but had picked up a lot of bad habits from not practicing correctly.

Priscilla helped me break some of those habits and helped me get to my next level of playing.

She believes in the importance of making whatever you're playing sound beautiful. This makes the lessons fun as you're working on making music instead of just practicing the same boring technical exercises over and over.

Besides being a great teacher, she's also very professional and kind. You can expect her to be very organized and always prepared to give a great lesson.

I am very proud of knowing Priscilla and introducing her to be my son and nephew’s piano teacher. She is a very professional, responsible and high-level teacher. She loves teaching and loves to pass her music passion to her students. What’s more, she is also a composer. I love her solo CDs which have become my home and car background music, in which people can feel the elements of calmness, happiness, purity, maturity, delight and gratefulness, all beautiful alive feelings from life. Being instructed by such a wonderful teacher with beautiful inner spirit, no wonder all her students play beautiful music

Colton K.

Dallas, TX

About Colton

Colton is a Certified
Music Teacher.

Want to learn piano but not sure where you want to start? Want to learn not just beautiful classics but rockin' blues riffs and jazz improvisation as well? I've played piano for over twenty years now in almost every setting imaginable: classical concerts, jam bands, vocal accompaniment.

Or perhaps you'd like to learn low brass? Maybe you want to rip out some licks on a tuba, trombone, or euphonium? I started with euphonium in 6th grade fifteen years ago and have since played low brass in both classical ensembles and a gigging New Orleans brass ban
d, and I can certainly develop these skill sets for you as well.

Maybe you want to delve into the electronic world of sound recording, session engineering, and music post-production. Using Pro Tools, Logic Pro X and Ableton live, I can teach you mixing, correct recording techniques for any instrument, and general mastering. This is a particular favorite of mine!

On top of any or all of these things, I'll teach you excellent music theory in order to put the whole sandwich together!

I can teach you everything you need to start out or develop as an awesome musician who will be able to perform in front of any crowd (or just for themselves), and I look forward to the adventures we'll have.

*** Lesson Details ***
I would say a student starting with me can expect a mixture of somewhat-strict, high expectations while at the same time making time for goofiness and fun (fun is what music is all about) We will go places with your music you didn't know existed, and you'll be blown away after merely a few lessons with how far you've already progressed!

After 3 to 6 months with me as a beginner, you will have a solid understanding of the rudiments of your instrument (piano, tuba, etc.) as well as a grip on the beginnings of music theory, and various other things you may want to focus on.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music studio with piano/keyboards, guitars, and seating for parents. Brass lessons will take place in the parlor, with more room and a higher ceiling for the sounds to reverberate more clearly.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide my instrument, curriculum, metronome and tuner, and extra staff paper and writing utensils for notes. Student will provide their instrument and any assigned curriculum.

*** Specialties ***
Jazz, Improvisation, Electronic music, Sound engineering and recording. Rare brass techniques-- extreme pedal tones, high ranges, multiphonics, etc.

Professional, fun, well-worth-it

Colton has provided excellent Tuba lessons for my 6th grader playing music for the first time. He is responsive to student needs and moves at a just right pace. He is friendly and fun. He addresses what my son is needing to practice for school and then takes it to the next level. He covers not only the skills for playing the tuba but also etiquette of instrument care, being in an ensemble, and music theory. He's easy to schedule with. Highly recommended.

Expect great things with Colton

Colton is passionate about music and you can see that right away after 5 minutes of talking to him. He is incredibly talented and my emotions during the lesson range from intimidation, respect, to excitement and motivation. Colton should be found teaching at a university sharing coffee with tweed covered professors leading hoards of students to musical enlightenment. His excitement for music is contagious and I leave the lesson feeling recharged for my practices and ready to take on new projects. He has a way of demanding the best of you and having a good time altogether without you even noticing.

Dallas, TX

About Whitney

*** Bit About Me ***
I am a classically trained pianist who competed in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area for 15 years (began lessons at age 5). I am currently in the process of obtaining my BSN and work at the VA Hospital. However, teaching (more specifically, teaching piano) is my passion! I genuinely enjoy helping my students accomplish the goals they set for themselves, whether it's to learn Bach, jazz, or pop.

*** What you can expect from me ***
We'll speak briefly about your expectations and schedule, then formulate a plan that will help you reach your goals. Whether your goal is to lea
rn scales by the end of the month, figure out where middle C is, or become a classical genius by the end of the year; we can make it happen. I do not expect you to learn the way I was taught (although if you want a strict regimen, I can provide that). I am a big believer in motivating you in the way that helps YOU succeed. I promise I am patient, pleasant and enjoy my job; you have nothing to be afraid of.

*** What I expect from you ***
I expect my students to practice; it is a crucial requirement for progress. Piano will require your time, energy and self discipline. Please respect my schedule; if you need to cancel, do so in the appropriate time frame. Most importantly, I want you to communicate honestly with me about your goals and if you want to readjust the "lesson plan," tell me. I am here to help you learn.

*** Equipment ***
I own a 1942 Kimball Consolette piano. She's old but she has soul. I have a variety of sheet music that we can make photocopies of and use. Please bring your workbooks/sheet music to every lesson. I have pencils (we mark in our music!) and a metronome. It is useful to download a metronome app on your phone for practice at home.

*** My Studio ***
I teach in a loft style condo with floor to ceiling windows. I do not have a private, designated seating area for parents. Also, my condo is undergoing renovations so it can be in disarray at times. However, I do not teach during construction hours so it will always be quiet and private during your lesson.

*** Specialties ***
I am a classically trained pianist who competed in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area for 15 years. I was trained to perform and compete only, playing songs that were required by competition guidelines. I participated in everything: Jazz, Sonatina, State, Solo, Ensemble, Regional, Hymn, you name it! This also means my "specialty" is classical music (Mozart, Bach, etc.)

I had Whitney as a teacher for only about 6 months and I would have easily stayed her student if I was not planning on moving out of state in the very near future. Throughout my short time as her pupil, I came to know what all the reviews written before have stated. She is a very kind and patient person who is nothing but encouraging and understands that everybody has their own strengths and weaknesses/likes and dislikes and will help cater the lessons to your personal preferences.

What I will add from my own experience is that she is very human in her manner of speaking and never feels like she is going through the motions when explaining something even though she has probably explained it a hundred times before. Also, she has a bit of a sarcastic sense of humor which is a plus in my books. Choosing her as your teacher will not be a mistake and you will get what you want out of it.

On a side note she has a pretty cat. So, that's cool.

I have been taking lessons with Whitney for 18 months and I have make steady progess - she provides inspiration to expand my skills - I am now reading music and playing is a joy! During each lesson the student plays to show progress - Whitney immediately provides suggestions for improvement while giving positive feedback - this interaction keeps me motivated to maintain a regular practice schedule.

Her location and hours are convenient for my schedule and she is fleible when schedule changes are needed.

I wouldn't have make progress with her excellent instruction!

TOYA N.

Dallas, TX

About TOYA

I have taught acting to small children, teens, and adults in community, private, and collegiate settings. I taught acting at the legendary Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute in New York City. My love of the arts has enabled me to study and perform in various cities throughout the US; including Los Angeles, where I studied at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute, to Europe, Mexico, South America; then back to New York City, where I earned a Master of Fine Arts degree in Acting from the prestigious Actors Studio Drama School.

I currently work professionally as an actor, singer, and TV
and radio host. I've been fortunate enough to work in film, TV, theater, musical theater, hosting, commercials, improv, and voice-overs. I am also a vocally trained mezzo-soprano. Because I am still a working artist, I can not only teach you craft, but can assist you in making the right choices to navigate your own way in the business. I offer private coaching to actors in theater and film, and singers in the US and abroad. I would love to share my knowledge and experience with you.

*** Lesson Details ***
I offer private coaching to children, teens, adults who have an interest in acting or singing performance, and for those who simply have an interest in performing or speaking in front of others. In addition to coaching those who wish to better their skills in acting, voice and speech, and singing, I also offer coaching for non-actors; i.e., attorneys, business professionals, teachers, politicians, pageant participants, and other creatives, who want to improve their public speaking and communication skills.

Theresa is a wonderful teacher! I have had many private lessons teachers, and she is by far the best. She is incredibly patient with me (especially when I get frustrated and struggle with a particular technique) and always challenges me each and every lesson. I feel that her pricing is very fair (my previous teachers charged much higher rates) and she is flexible whenever I cannot meet for lesson (given advance notice). I highly recommend her for anyone looking for teacher --- young child or adult. I have only had her for acoustic guitar lessons, but I imagine she is probably just as competent at teaching other instruments.

Incredibly knowledgeable and versatile, yet perfectly personable, Theresa has been an absolute treasure of a teacher. From the very start, she has made the extra effort to relate our lessons to my particular musical interests and aspirations, while also just being tremendously fun to talk to. If she weren't the best music teacher I'd had the privilege of working with (which she certainly is), I'd probably still recommend her for the repartee alone.
