Very patient with young children, an outstanding guitar teacher!

Tom has been teaching my daughter guitar for her first year of lessons. She is now 6, and can be moody, very easily distracted and will not sit still for long. To keep her focused, Tom combines harmonica and slide whistle lessons along with her guitar lessons, and it works very well. He also brings in different kinds of guitars (electric and classical) to keep the lessons interesting for her. Every week he reviews what she has learned, and also brings new music and will even write requested songs (using fret # a good approach for kids at this age). He shows up for lessons like clockwork, and she has learned much more than we had expected her to.

Tom is knowledgable, patient and FUN!

Tom lets my son choose the type of music he wants to learn, even specific songs. He also has him work on other types of music in order to improve his technique, yet ensures that its music he likes. As his mom, I am particularly pleased that Tom discusses with him the types of things that my son should practice that will help his progress. Tom is a low-key individual, but has plenty of enthusiasm for his work. My son is always excited about his guitar lessons and thinks the world of Tom.

Learning piano was a wonderful experience. I not only got to learn to play, but I also learned about the details of playing the piano. Not only for fun on a day to day basis, but also on a more serious note like playing at performance. I was amazed at how quickly I picked up the piano with Dustin's guidance. With his guidance, I discovered that playing the piano was fun and he made it easy to learn. I would recommend Dustin as a piano teacher to anyone.

I had always heard that finding the right piano teacher for your child was important, I never really understood that until my son began working with Mr. Dustin S. for piano lessons. My 10 yr. old had other piano teachers in the past that really didn't seem to listen or take time to understand our son's needs which in effect, seemed to cause my son to steadily lose interest in wanting to learn piano. Mr. Dustin S. took the time to listen to our past experiences, taking notes (literally) on what were the past concerns and future goals. He thoughtfully planned and adjusted his lessons to keep my son interested in practicing piano as well as in learning to read music. Mr. Dustin S. is very knowledgeable, and truly takes time to know his students.

I recently began taking lessons with Michael on understanding more about music theory with the objective of becoming a better guitarist and song writer. Not only the knowledge I have gained, but the overall improvement of my musicianship in such a short amount of time has greatly surpassed my expectations. I would highly recommend Michael to any musician looking to take their craft to the next level.

After just a few lessons with Michael I could see instant improvements in my guitar playing and truly started to understand more and more about my instrument, and just music in general. My lessons are always a good time with Michael and i look forward to each one every week. He's a great teacher and musician and I definitely recommend him to everyone.

Michael has been wonderful. He seems very young to this old woman, but his maturity is remarkable. I have never had a teacher handle 'Thias the way Michael does. Somehow he seems to always be a step ahead of his young student and has a distinct ability to keep 'Thias focused on the lesson. Mathias has learned so much in the last four weeks, his playing sounds much more mature and organized and he is enraptured with the music he is making. I have always had to keep an eye on the lesson to make sure that Mathias was engaged. Somehow I do not feel the need to do that anymore. I guess I can say that Michael has given me the chance to relax and "enjoy the music". Thank you, Michael, You are making my dream and Mathias's dream come true.

Andrew F.

San Antonio, TX

Up to Music Theory III, I can comfortably teach students. I go over the desired material with the use of the piano as a visual tool. If needed, I can provide a textbook as a source of reference.

About Andrew

I have experience tutoring students as well as working with people individually and in groups, as an undergrad Psychology intern, a cognitive skills trainer, and a counseling student. As an undergrad intern, I worked with elementary school children as a tutor and a mentor. As a counseling student, I have worked with various populations, from grade school students (making healthier choices) to adults (stress, anxiety, career decisions, bereavement, etc.) to older adults in hospice care, as well as facilitate groups with individuals suffering from a mental illness. Also, I teach a beginner ukule
le class at a community education center. Through my personal, academic and vocational experiences, I have gained insight about the process of working with people, educationally, musically and through goal setting (counseling and coaching).

My approach is one that is peculiar to each of my students. As an auto-didactic learner, I believe that everyone has their own way of learning. Therefore, I use an approach that I feel works well for each of my students, with regard to whether a student thinks abstractly or concretely, for example. With so many possible goals, it is important to be flexible to work effectively with each student's learning style.

I see the process as a wonderful opportunity for students to gain knowledge and awareness and to personally develop. With my patience, positive energy, personal insight and passion for working with people, I do my best during each meeting to help ensure my students are working effectively towards progress, while having a fun time doing it. I do this by helping my students create meaning and by keeping the focus of the lessons based on my student's interests and concerns. Further, I strive to feed the passion of each of my students through such means as inspiring and motivating, done genuinely. My hope is that this is undoubtedly clear during the process.

Two important things: I strive to maintain a positive collaboration with my students so that learning and development may occur. I believe this is one of the most important parts of the process. It is essential for students to share the same commitment. Also: I promote the idea of Soul. To me, Soul is any sincere display of passion. With Soul, we perform in a most genuine and graceful way. I personally believe that whether one is playing the piano, writing an essay, giving a speech, or anything (necessarily peaceful), one should do it with Soul.

Personal Development Coaching: Using my insight gained as a counseling student and my aforementioned experience working with people, I am happy to provide my personal development coaching service, which focuses on helping individuals develop personal areas identified as needing growth and development (e.g. career, anxiety, lifestyle). If interested, please, see the details I have provided under Life Coaching. I work with grade school students and adults (including college students).

My approach to personal development coaching is based on a therapeutic intervention called Gestalt Therapy (GT). The underlying idea of GT is that awareness is the key to change. Also, responsibility of the individual and living in the present are promoted. My approach looks to help the individual gain self-actualization. This allows one to discern where such things as anxiety, unhappiness, ambivalence, etc. stem from. I believe that it is important for every human being to go through such a process so that peace and awareness within brings peace and awareness to the outer world. I help facilitate the process in a genuinely humane, empathetic and professional manner.

I mentioned everything that is above so that it may be known and understood. Please, contact TakeLessons if you have any questions about any services I provide, my approach or anything!

Whether its spelling chords, part-writing, voice-leading or finally understanding scales and modes, I could help you apply the concepts to your instrument.

About Marco

I started playing guitar seriously at age 12, and I was heavily influenced by Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix, Chet Atkins and Wes Montgomery. After being in several bands in highschool and attending the North East School of the Arts, I found that I could study music in college, so I started pursuing my Music Education Degree at SAC and am in the process of applying at UNT. I specialize in guitar technique, reading and music theory.
