Jason L.

Denton, TX

About Jason

I love playing the guitar. I think you will too when you see the results that come from dedication and motivation. Everyone who plays the guitar is a student of the instrument. The greatest players in the world are still learning. If you are a beginner or an advanced player there is always room for improvement. No matter your skill level, I can help you grow in knowledge and technique.

*** Lesson Details ***
I can teach you in the styles of country, blues, folk, rock, pop, and jazz. Music is organized sound. I will teach you how music works and how to apply that knowledge to the g
uitar. Trust me, music theory is NOT complicated. You do not have to read music to understand music theory. Within a few months if you dedicate plenty of time and effort to the lesson materials you will see and hear the results. Learning the guitar is fun!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room setup for lessons. Parents can sit on lessons, and waiting area available.

*** Travel Equipment ***

Student should own a guitar.

*** Specialties ***
Country, blues, folk, rock and jazz. I specialize in teaching how the guitar works with the 5 major and minor chord shapes in the first position, and how they can be moved up the neck with index finger barring. How each shape has a corresponding pentatonic and major scale or mode shape that corresponds with it.

Lessons have been underway for only a short time. Notwithstanding, Jason's teaching has been relevant, responsive to the student's needs and designed to motivate the student. He himself is quite knowledgeable of the Guitar and music theory, and a fine guitarist from what is observed in the short time we have been working together. I am pleased with this instructor and am looking forward to working with him in the weeks to come.

Jonathan M.

Argyle, TX

About Jonathan

Music is what I breathe every day of my life! I grew up in Oklahoma in an average-sized city. Starting in 1st grade I pursued taking private piano lessons. Unlike most kids, I continued classical piano study throughout middle school and high school. In 2nd grade, the year after starting piano lessons, I pursued taking private trumpet lessons with the trumpet professor at the university in my city. Around age 9 I started private drum-set lessons, and age 14 picked up the acoustic guitar later followed by electric guitar. I just wanted to play ALL the instruments. After my 2nd year of high schoo
l, I decided to pursue independent study with an online accredited school, mainly for the reason of greater personal music study through the university. My trumpet professor asked if I’d like to participate in the university jazz ensemble on a weekly basis while I was still in high school. Studying independently allowed me to attend rehearsals and other college music classes that would later count as concurrent hours towards my college degree plan. Not having to "technically" GO to school, I got super involved with my church's worship teams, filling positions of drummer, acoustic guitarist, electric guitarist, and pianist for various teams.

I applied for the University of Oklahoma as a trumpet performance major in the Fall of 2010, and after receiving a very great scholarship studied there for 3 years. Upon entering my fourth year of my undergrad at OU, I decided to transfer to the University of North Texas in pursuit of the prestigious jazz lab bands. Fall 2013 was my first semester at UNT and I graduated with a classical music performance bachelor's degree in December 2014.

Studying music at a higher level, especially with such great professors that OU and UNT have to offer, has opened my mind to all the incredible ways music can be created, received, enjoyed, performed, and flirted with. These years of study starting all the way back to when I was 7 year old have not only honed my skills, techniques, and musicality, but also strengthened my passion, excited my spirits, and caused me to want to share music and its joys to every human being alive. I want to instill in every student I teach that music is a beautiful art that doesn't have to be scary or tedious, but allows the individual to express their thoughts and feelings in ways that are safe, fun, and extremely productive! I will demonstrate to students how music can be and is loads of fun!

*** Lesson Details ***
Music, but specifically the trumpet, should be in no way frustrating or tedious. My teaching style is a style that is beneficial to all students, regardless of age. I believe it is crucial for teachers to practice patience with students, as music is a challenge to master. The teaching environment is very easy-going, fun, creative, yet progressive. I base teaching techniques, materials, and also style on the personality and talent of that particular student, although ALL students are treated with positive attitudes and an understanding manner. I see exactly what students need to hear/do in order to progress at an exponential rate. I make lessons fun for them. I see how students respond to what’s happening and how they’re getting the material, and I focus in on a certain method that guarantees they get and understand my teachings. Whether you’re looking to enjoy the trumpet as just a hobby or plan to intently study and play professionally in the future, I am confident I can get you to your goal! Do you have a specific goal in mind? Tell me! I’d love to help you out!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect students to have their own B-flat horn, mouthpiece, and valve oil. Books are to be purchased upon request.

*** Specialties ***
I teach all-around trumpet skills: improvement of sound production and tone, increased technical skill (broader range, cleaner tonguing, easier flexibility, fluency, agility), sight-readability and readability, musicality and phrasing techniques, jazz, classical, pop, orchestral, and GREAT tunes!

Music Theory
Exceptional teacher

I am an older non-musician in a household full of multi-talented musicians. I finally decided that I needed to at least receive some education in music performance and music theory just to keep up with my family. Jonathan has been the perfect instuctor for that! Not only has he explained the concepts of music theory in a logical and easy to understand way - he has made it challenging and exciting! I have begun trumpet lessons and I am progressing far faster than I thought possible. What a great instructor! I no longer consider myself a "non-musician."

Trumpet
Outstanding

I'm a trumpet beginner. I've tried taking lessons before but really went nowhere and it was a horrible experience. Jonathan has been very patient as he has moved me quickly and effectively through the basics of trumpet to where I now have a sense of pride in what I can do! I almost didn't give him a try but his experience and friendly picture convinced me to try it again. I'm so glad I did! I can't recommend this instructor more highly!

Great experience as a beginner

Jonathan is doing a great job teaching me from no knowledge at all. He's given me great exercises to increase my playing ability and is very patient when I don't understand or can't figure out how to play the notes.

Marilyn J.

Fort Worth, TX

About Marilyn

Music is soothing to the soul. It can calm us when anxious. It can teach young children focus, concentration and improve fine motor skills. I feel classical piano is a basic foundation to learn many instruments and types of music. I include theory and ear training with piano lessons. My goal is to try and turn on the student's love for music so that he or she wants to spend time at the piano at home improving skills.

Beth B.

Colleyville, TX

About Beth

In May 2011, I graduated from Texas Woman's University with my Bachelor's Degree in Music and a minor in Business Management. Music has been my passion since before I started taking piano lessons in third grade and there was an innate desire to master the keys. At age fifteen, I taught myself how to play guitar and started writing songs. In 2013, I became a published songwriter when my songs were produced on my church's Christmas Album ("Who Is This King?").

I have been teaching private piano lessons part-time from my home in Colleyville for four years. My students range from young beginner
s to intermediate and advanced students, to beginner and moderate adults. Teaching is my greatest passion, whether it's of the classical genre, theory mastery, or equipping a student to use their gifts in worship. 

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions and I will be happy to discuss. I believe with you that you'll find just the right instructor to impart to your family!

Ms. Beth is a wonderful, peaceful instructor who teaches my ten-year-old daughter classical piano. She has given her lessons for 16 months now, and I wouldn't choose anyone better as a teacher and mentor for young (or old) instrumentalists or vocalists. She is patient, kind, and we'll-versed in all things music. Her individualized instruction is affordable and productive. My daughter feels confidence in her skill thanks to Ms. Beth! We highly recommend her for all skill-levels and talent interests!
