About Patricia

A graduate of the prestigious GSTEP teaching excellence program at UNT, Patricia has many years of experience with students of all skill levels and musical styles. Awarded a full three year Teaching Fellowship she taught a private studio of 12-16 students per semester at UNT, the equivalent of a full-time faculty teaching load. In the larger DFW community she presently teaches vocal students at the Junior High and High School levels in Keller and HEB ISDs and at the Fort Worth Academy of Fine Arts, resident school of the famous Texas Boys Choir and the Singing Girls of Texas. Her students have
won spots in All-Region and TMEA All-State Choirs, top ratings at solo and ensemble contests, been admitted to music performance, music education and music therapy degree programs at TWU, UNT and TCU as well as performing in local bands and musical theater productions.

Patricia holds three degrees: Bachelor of Music in Voice Performance (UT Austin), Master of Music in Voice Performance (UT Austin) and Doctor of Musical Arts in Voice Performance (UNT).
Her professional association memberships include: the Texas Music Educators Association, the National Association of Teachers of Singing, the College Music Society and the National Opera Association.
Patricia is a polished professional singer who has performed in a variety of venues in the United States and Europe. She has studied with mezzo-soprano Inci Bashar (Turkish National Opera), helden-tenor William Lewis (Metropolitan Opera, La Scala), bass Nikita Storojev (Bolshoi Opera, La Scala) and sung under the baton of conductors such as Graeme Jenkins (Dallas Opera, Vienna State Opera), Stephen Dubberly (UNT Opera), Keith Clark (Vienna Chamber Orchestra, Pacific Symphony Orchestra) and Clinton Smith (Santa Fe Opera, Minnesota Opera).
Recent solo performances have included: concert performances of “I Dreamed a Dream” and Éponine’s death scene from Les Misérables (Schönberg and Boublil), Stabat Mater (Pergolesi), Four Sacred Songs (Dvorak), the title roles in Lucia di Lammermoor (Donizetti) and Alcina (Handel) and Donna Anna in Don Giovanni (Mozart). Upcoming engagements include an invitation to participate as a solo concert artist in the Casalmaggiore International Music Festival in Italy in the summer of 2015.

Tammye D.

The Colony, TX

I teach all levels and all ages.

About Tammye

I am a 2008 graduate of the University of North Texas with a Bachelor of Arts in Music degree. While at North Texas I taught trumpet lessons in the Denton area. I have also taught piano, clarinet, and saxophone as well as all the other brass instruments. I have performed with the UNT Concert Band, the UNT Brass Band, the UNT Nine O'Clock Lab Band, the Collin County Jazz Band, and the San Jose Metropolitan Band.

Currently, I teach clarinet, saxophone, trumpet and piano in the DFW area. I also play trumpet in the both the Frisco Community Band and the Frisco Community Brass Ensemble.

**
* Lesson Details ***
I am a laid back teacher who gets you playing from the first day.

*** Studio Equipment ***
All students are required to purchase the Musician's Practice Planner, which you can find at any music store. You will also need to get any books that we play through (but I'll give you time to get them, so don't worry.) Any books that we use will be easy to find and won't cost a whole lot of money.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will always bring my instrument with me when I attend a lesson, so I expect my students to do the same when they come to my studio. Also, make sure you have any books and music that we will be playing out of. I always have a copy of anything that we are playing, so I expect the student to have a copy as well.

Mrs. Tammye D. Took time to listen to what I had to say. My first lesson from Mrs. Tammye met my expectations of an instructor and deep down in my heart she will make me an saxophone player.

Michael H.

Lewisville, TX

I am comfortable teaching basic to intermediate music theory, from scales & intervals to chord formulas & chord progressions.

About Michael

Along with being a songwriter, performer, and recording artist, I have over 30 years of teaching electric and acoustic guitar in all styles and levels, specializing in rock. We can focus on technique, reading music in standard or tablature, music theory, improvisation, or simply learning your favorite songs. The bottom line is making sure you meet your musical goals!

*** Lesson Details ***
I will begin your lessons by pinpointing exactly what you wish to focus on, then devise an organized plan so that we can maximize our progress. It's all about YOU!

*** Studio Equipment ***
I always h
ave an amp in my teaching studio (although it's not mandatory that you play through it), and extra guitars if you're not able to bring yours. I can also play CDs or mp3s on the spot to learn your favorite songs, and I have complete and accurate tablature to thousands of songs, all alphabetized!

*** Specialties ***
I excel in teaching technique - specifically alternate picking for speed and sweep picking for arpeggios - I can definitely help you reach your maximum potential on these techniques, among others. I also excel in the repertoire of acoustic and electric rock songs that I can teach you. I am patient as well. We can progress at your level.

Michael is an encyclopedia when it comes to guitar. We are working on theory, and he just knows it from A to Z. He is patient. Explains every detail when I ask for the minutiae. He inquired what I wanted to learn, and he formed my lessons around my goals. But it has an organic feel in that what i initially wanted has changed as I understand more. He moves in that flow and adjusts our target in lessons.

But what is most important is he is not an adversary when it comes to lessons. In the past I have taken lessons and it was the instructor's way or no way at all. Michael's lessons are like hanging out with a friend who is a great guitarist that is willing to share his knowledge.

I look forward to lessons.

My daughter was ecstatic about taking lessons, and I was extremely happy with the fact that Lesly did not burst her bubble. She was so geared up when she left that she was asking me about an hour after the lesson when we were going to start the homework. Bless her

Jimmy A.

Denton, TX

I am easy-going, good natured, and patient. I can assist you to meet your music theory goals and help to inspire you to learn as much as you are able to. My background is in music performance and education, and I am a professional musician and licensed music educator. I have been providing music and music theory tutoring since 2000, and have worked with children of all ages as well as adults.

I am excited to hear from you and look forward to helping you achieve success!

About Jimmy

I believe that any student may excel at any subject given the right tools and guidance. I also believe tutoring can be an essential part of this educational process. With this level of importance, I hold high standards for the students and myself and my method of tutoring directly reflects these beliefs. My method is geared towards understanding of the material, rather than just rote completion of homework.The ultimate tutoring situation is one in which I can not only provide information to the students, but also resources in which they may find their own information to further their own educa
tional growth and development.

I am easy-going, good-natured, and patient. Once we begin recurring lessons, I will work with student's current abilities and materials ( notes, homework, or course materials). I will also bring to the table my own tools and experience. We (as a teacher/student team) are then able to move through various levels of material at a pace appropriate for that individual student. I can assist you to meet your music goals and help inspire you to learn as we link your prior knowledge to new information and understanding. It is truly exciting to teach and guide students as they go from nervous and concerned, to relaxed and confident for performances and audition days.

Feedback for the student will be frequent and used for further instruction. I also ask for feedback on my instruction from the parent and the student so that I can ensure my tutoring is always highly effective and fun.

I am excited to hear from you and look forward to helping you achieve success!
