Allison V.

Houston, TX

About Allison

My musical journey began with piano lessons at age 8 followed by flute lessons the next year. My passion for the flute grew as I played in school bands from 4th to 12th grade. I attended Southwestern University from 2009 to 2013 and graduated with a BM in Music Performance on the flute (magna cum laude) and gave private lessons throughout most of my college career with great success. I have performed in several ensembles including the flute choir, wind ensemble and orchestra at SU, as well as The Gilbert and Sullivan Society of Austin Orchestra in their production of The Mikado. I currently p
lay as a soloist as well as with AURORA: Trio for Flute, Harp, and Cello, the St. John Vianney Parish Orchestra, the Shimmer Flute Choir, and Sounds of Silver Flute Quartet, and am an active member of the Houston Flute Club.

Although classically trained I also enjoy classic rock and appreciate music from other cultures as well.

Fun Fact: In college I arranged Three Dog Night's Joy to the Word/Jeremiah was a Bullfrog for flute quartet which has been performed on two separate occasions and was well received!

I frequently write arrangements for flute choir and other ensembles, and so I can help students who want to learn more about arranging and composition.

In addition to the flute I also have experience with the piccolo, alto, and bass flute. I love performing and I share my passion for music with my students.

*** Lesson Details ***
I offer lessons that cover just about every aspect of flute-playing. Students can expect to become well-rounded musicians that are knowledgeable about flute technique, tone, music theory and history. I use the Rubank Method with handout supplements. The biggest changes I've seen in my students after a few months is a better understanding of how to practice efficiently as well as improved tone.

I strive to make lessons fun and interesting. I do not consider myself strict, but I do not ignore bad habits. My goal is to see students improve. I want students to understand that playing an instrument is a lot of fun, but it is also a lot of hard work.

Every Spring my students and I participate in Flute Fest, a day-long celebration of all things flute, including concerts, masterclasses, and a solo and ensemble contest. A few weeks later we have our annual studio recital where everyone shows off their hard work.

My teaching philosophy focuses on slow and deliberate practice of technique while still appreciating the expression and style of a piece. I never force a student to play a piece he or she does not like because I feel that doing so discourages practice and slows musical development. I like to encourage students to pick their own solos and partly base the lesson on whatever aspects of the solo need attention, as well as whatever else the student is working on. I try to use a variety of methods for explaining concepts including pictures, verbal descriptions, demonstrations, etc., depending on what works best for the student. I focus heavily on good posture and tone production, stressing on learning good playing habits at a young age. I believe that music lessons should be a fun and engaging part of a student's week. Ultimately my goal is to share my enthusiasm for music and my instrument with the student and deepen their love for the art.

*** Studio Equipment ***
My studio is located in the front room of my home and includes a music stand, piano and comfortable chairs in case parents would like to stay for the lesson.

*** Specialties ***
I primarily concentrate on classical music, but I also have experience with extended techniques, which include singing and playing at the same time, key clicks, and multiphonics.

Allison is such a great instructor! I felt very nervous leading up to the lesson because it had been such a long time since I played. Allison put me at ease right away. I gained some confidence and helpful instruction just in the first 45 minutes we spent together. She's very patient and encouraging. I recommend her to anyone, regardless of age or skill level.

Allison is a very professional and well-organized teacher. She lays out clear expectations for new students and her explanations are always very clear. I appreciate how she strives to make the most of the lesson time and I'm sure you will too! She does not let a single moment go under-utilized.

Allison is clever at finding ways to make tedious exercises (such as tuning) fun. She also has interesting blog posts on the types of music/chords she composes and enjoys. She is enthusiastic about sharing these tidbits with interested students, thus inspiring them. Her teaching methods are quite motivating. I like the way she explains the logic behind a piece of music. An example is "O Magnum Mysterium", which she arranged.

Allison teaches out of her home studio. It is a comfortable environment that is conducive to learning and also has two seats for parents who wish to observe their child's lesson. Allison is very professional about ensuring that the lesson time is free of interruptions.

I highly recommend Allison's professional services to anyone who is looking to learn or resume playing the flute. She is an excellent educator and I'm sure you will be pleased with her studio.

Jeremiah L.

Houston, TX

About Jeremiah

As a Musicians Institute graduate, I've learned from exceptional drummers in the Los Angeles music industry. I gained and learned many tricks of the trade and can offer the same quality education to anyone. As a student myself, I realized that having great sound, solid timing and grove are just as essential as having cool beats to play. There are more technicalities to drumming than being able to play fast or having the best chops.
Aside from learning how to play drums, knowing how to think about music, how to listen to music, and how to study music will give a great foundation to any studen
t of any style.

I first like to determine the students ability and understanding by working on a few coordination exercises and reading exercises.
From a good foundation, I build a curriculum, and deter any obstacles by constantly changing my approach to further and benefit the student playing.

Getting Schooled

Technique is paramount when learning to play drums, if you don't have a good, solid technique, your just another sloppy drummer. Enter Jeremiah, an instructor with an excellent ear, picking up quickly on what it is I'm doing wrong, establishing a path to quick correction and selecting a technique right for my style of play. 3 lessons in and my playing is dramatically different, much cleaner and solid on the grooves. This guy has pushed my creativity to a new level and my confidence in live play stacks up to the crowd

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 10 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 6 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, Austin City Limits, Westheimer Block Party, opened up for bands like the Misfits and Rage Against the Machine, shared the stage with bands like The Wallflowers, Minus the Bear, and Echo and the Bunnymen, and been on tour and lived the whole life more often than not!
YOU can be an active musician. If you have the passion and desire. The first step though, is learning your instrument. Learning an instrument is something that stays with you for the rest of your life. It's an unfaltering companion that can benefit you in so many ways. I like to toss out the strict "teacher/student" regiment and create a laid back, fun, easy going atmosphere. I want to be buds and SHARE music with each other and introduce you into this world that I have grown to love so so much. There is nothing more rewarding. I promise. So let's get started!

*** Lesson Details ***
I am very laid back. Your progress is directly linked to you. I will give it my all to teach you and help you, but if you don't practice or soak it in, that's on you! I hate having a tense, seminar type lesson atmosphere. Lessons with me will be easy going and relaxed. I don't want to have to put on a sweater vest and wag my finger as a I scold you. That's just not me.
However, I DO expect you to get things done. Why waste your time with lessons if you're not going to take them seriously on any level? The curriculum will be totally personalized for YOU. After all, not everybody likes the same music and style. The first lesson or two will be getting a handle on exactly what YOU want to learn and what YOU want out of it. Finding out your favorite bands/artists, guitar players, bass players, etc. There's nothing worse than being taught something you have no desire for, but having it drilled into your head week after week! So whether that be blues, folk, metal, whatever, that's the first step. With that information I'll begin constructing and laying out the rest of your lesson plan.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Although I assume you have an instrument of your own (if not I recommend getting one, it sort of helps), if you're looking to just try things out at first I have more than a few extra that I'd be happy to let you use. My teaching studio doubles as a recording studio as well. This means 2 things: if ever you would like to record some of your music you know where to go! And also, I have the means to record the entire lesson if you'd like. You'll need to supply the blank CD(s) of course. It's not a requirement to record the lesson, just an option! Basically, I have everything you could ever possibly need for music lessons here. So you're set.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Guitars, amps, etc. anything that would be needed I've got!

*** Specialties ***
I am versed in blues, rock, metal, folk, hardcore, acoustic-finger-style and various other acoustic styles, and more. Through teaching and experience as a working musician I have mastered most genres and styles. When sitting at home jamming in my free time, I probably most frequently find myself playing acoustic finger-style, blues, folk, or hardcore, but love and appreciate most styles. So, bring it on!

About Heath

Hello there! My name is Heath. I've been teaching drums for five years now and I love it. I've also been playing professionally for over a decade, mostly in Houston cover bands which incorporate all styles of music, and also at my church (St. John the Divine). I'm extremely blessed to teach and to play music for a living! My style of teaching is broad. I like to play pieces and exercises with my students in order to create a more visceral and intuitive learning experience. Reading and timing is also very important, and I want to give my students the tools to continue their learning and
fun with many drumming books and other materials for life. Let's have some fun and learn together!

Heath is the best percussionist instructor I know! He was able to not only show me a deeper appreciation for percussion and drums, but also how well a good percussionist can keep the rhythm flowing. I have learned as much from him as I have put forth the effort to learn. The only complaint I have is my own hectic schedule.

Heath is a masterful teacher. He has the ability to listen and understand where I am in my learning curve and adjust his lessons to my skill level.. In few short months I have learned more from him than I have accomplished in years on my own. I would highly recommend this instructor to anyone serious about improving their skills.
