Paul David F. Houston, TX

About Paul David

I have two degrees, as well as a teaching certificate in music education. Music Education is incredibly important, and the field I hold dearly to my heart. Music is my passion in life, and it is why I wake up in the morning. Music can enrich someone’s life, whether it is simply listening to a piece of music, or studying an instrument for one’s lifetime. Studies have shown that music education can and has increased intellectual skills, especially in mathematics and reading. When learners are motivated and very studious in music education, many of these students become doctors, engineers, teachers, and other highly-intellectual professions. In conclusion, an education and especially a music education is so important for the emotional and intellectual development of a human ...

Mr David is quite knowledgeable in music and piano in particular. He is very patient with my 6 year old and the latter is happy being his student.
Carter N. Katy, TX

About Carter

I've loved music since I was able to walk. When I was 5 or 6, I would listen to my mother's stereo system, with Jim Croce playing on the 8-Track tape deck.....(ok, so I'm aging myself a little bit). I would lay on the floor in between the speakers which were turned inward toward my ears. I could lay there for hours, tapping my toes to "Bad Bad Leroy Brown", "Roller Derby Queen", "You Don't Mess Around with Jim", and many others. I would also listen to the Beatles, Seargent Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band", and "Revolution" and be completely taken away. I didn't realize it then, but what captivated me were the songs that were written to tell stories, and the music that brought the stories to life. As I grew into my early teens, I got into Kiss, Alice Cooper, Rush, Ted Nugent, and Jimi ...

My son started lessons when he was 8 on acoustic guitar. I randomly chose a teacher and was hoping for a teacher who could be patient yet firm and be able to inspire my son. Mr Carter is the best teacher I could have asked for - he is all that and more. Quite often, I listen to the teacher and student conversation with admiration as they are discussing ideas and Mr. Carter's openness to receiving ideas on a tune or what Ashwin wants to learn. The frank and open discussion results in motivating the young student as they feel a sense of importance and builds confidence (sometimes too much!). At the same time, when the situation calls for it, Mr. Carter is firm and points out when Ashwin hasn't practiced or not done well and that pushes him to do better. I look forward to many years ahead.

I find Rafael very patient and encouraging. I am absolutely new to the guitar.

I am a senior and needs lot of help. I am also a retiree; and since I was always interested in learning to play the guitar I thought I would give it a try. I selected the right teacher.

I really recommend Rafael. He is a teacher, is not a person that knows only how to play. He is a person that also knows how to teach. He finds the way to explain things so I can understand them.

Recomiendo a Refael como profesor. No solo sabe tocar sino tambien sabe enseniar. Busca la forma de explicar las cosas y que estas sean entendibles para alguien que no sabe mucho de musica.
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, ...

I’m a total guitar beginner and have been taking lessons with Andrew for about 6 months. He’s easy going, fun, encouraging and definitely talented. I have learned so much from him and with his guidance, I’m certain I will continue to progress. I’m glad I stumbled across him, great teacher.
