Rob B. Austin, TX

About Rob

I have been playing guitar since August 1992. I cut my teeth on the alternative music that was popular at the time (Pearl Jam, Smashing Pumpkins, Soundgarden, Nirvana) but soon began to focus on earlier movements, specifically the playing styles and mindsets of Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, and Eric Clapton. I formed a band in 1996 and began gigging in Austin and throughout Texas. During this time, I immersed myself in jazz and did everything I could to bring the sonic palettes of Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, and Miles Davis into my playing, even taking up saxophone and piano in order to better understand what they were doing. I eventually moved back to my home town of Lubbock, where I graduated from Texas Tech University with a BA in English with a minor in Music, having played guitar ...

I learned a lot in a short amount of time

Rob is an incredible guitar player who also has the ability to teach others what he knows. He taught me exactly what I requested and then some... in a very short period of time. I'd highly recommend Rob to anyone wanting to learn to play or simply needing to improve. He's great.

Heather was really good with me. She took out enough time to explain the things people normally don't, or don't even know about, and she actually told me a lot I hadn't known before. She also explained it in a way that I understood easily, and we practiced it. So, I'm definitely going to use what she'd told me, and hopefully I get to work with her again. She's excellent!
Chris A. Austin, TX

About Chris

I hold my B.A in Voice from the University of North Texas. I was a member of UNT’s A Capella Choir, ranked among the top five undergraduate choirs in the nation. I have worked with a range of vocal teachers from many backgrounds, from a metropolitan opera star to voice science academics to professional singer-songwriters. This breadth of experience and research over the last 11 years has enabled me to refine the art of teaching someone how to sing so that it is effective and feels good for the singer to do, no matter where they start. For me, seeing the joy on a student’s face when they are able to stay in tune for the first time, or hearing their excitement on the phone when they tell me they've won a $20,0000 college vocal scholarship, makes it easy for me to say that I really love ...

My daughter has been taking voice lessons for a few years and is fairly advanced in her ability and technique. We were crushed when her voice teacher (a sought after University vocal Director) moved out of state, and we found ourselves in the market for a new teacher. We were beyond pleased to find Chris as her new vocal coach. He has helped my daughter fine-tune her vocal tone quality, expand her musicality, and overall take her singing ability to a new level. His professionalism is a breath of fresh air; he's always on time and has a fantastic demeanor. We would highly recommend!

I've really enjoyed taking singing lessons from Chris. He's got very cheerful personality and excellent teaching qualities. Coming from no Voice training what so ever, I can carry on a song without hesitation. I totally recommend Chris as a professional Voice instructor without any doubt! Thank you, Chris!

Chris is amazing with my daughter. She has been taking lessons with Chris for past 6 months and her singing technique has improved exponentially. He lets her pick the songs and works at her pace. He is very adjusting of any schedule change (even if it is last minute). My daughter always looks forward to her singing lesson with Chris.

Chris is patient, well rounded in different genre's of music, fun to work with, and an experienced professional. I would highly recommend him.
Raymond C. Austin, TX

About Raymond

My name is Ray and I teach piano and organ. I've just moved to Austin with my family from San Jose, California where I directed music at churches for over 10 years, served as pianist and organist, and conducted several choirs and music groups. I also started teaching private piano lessons after graduating from the University of the Pacific in Stockton, California with a degree in Music Education. I consider myself an organist, before pianist, because the organ is my first love! The organ is so similar to the piano, yet it is vastly different and comes with it its own unique excitement! As a teacher, I enjoy watching young musicians discover their abilities. I look forward to helping you get excited about the piano or organ and making music! *** Lesson Details *** My beginning ...

My 15 year old son, who has some experience with music through orchestra at school, began playing the piano on his own about two years ago. Although he has some skill, there are many areas where he still needs help. Ray is an excellent judge of Jack's ability and is able to guide him in fingering, sight reading and reading base clef. My son has found Ray very helpful because he picks up on what he needs and knows how to explain what to do to improve. He is learning something new with each lesson. Besides being knowledgeable, skilled and patient, Ray is also very personable! My son looks forward to his lesson each week!

Richard was a great teacher! I am an adult student who had two goals - learn to play the piano and make a marriage proposal to my girlfriend. My only musical experience was playing trombone in band during middle school. Richard helped me jog my memory about learning the piano by providing simple assignments through the "A Dozen a Day" book series.

What I really liked about Richard is that he tries to teach you a little bit of music theory so that you can understand what each particular scale or exercise is trying teach you about music. Why is that useful? It helps to take a little break every once in awhile to freestyle. Richard's tips in music theory allowed you to try to put your own little spin in each song.

Richard is also very patient and wants the student to set clear goals for themselves so that we could work towards the goals together. He is also very laid back, but will definitely let you know when you're off. Whether you're off beat by just a little bit or whether your supposed to be piano/forte, he'll make sure you get it the next go around.

After 6-8 months of 30 minute lessons once a week, I was able to learn a few simple children songs, a few pop songs, a video game theme, and play Bob Dylan's "To Make You Feel My Love" for my girlfriend for the proposal (she said yes!).

Richard is very cool. He is very nice and easy to work with. His knowledge of the piano and of music theory are exceptional and his ability to explain them to a beginner is incredible. I have learned so much in only 3 or 4 sessions and have already scheduled 4 more. I am so glad I found Richard on TakeLessons!! I would absolutely recommend him to an adult or to a child. He's the best!!!
