Greg D. Carrollton, TX

About Greg

Greg has been playing drums since he received his first drum kit at the age of 8. His parents helped Greg nourish his abilities by enrolling him in private lessons and starting him in the school band program (which I see has an important aspect to learning, but not necessary). During his junior and high school years, Greg participated in concert bands, youth orchestra, marching band, and played in a variety of high school musicals. His time spent with these ensembles enabled him to travel overseas to London and all over the United States performing in festivals, parades, and competitions. After high school, Greg attended the acclaimed University of North Texas in Denton, Texas where he received his Bachelor of Music in 2002. His studies enabled him to learn history, arranging, ...

I am an adult beginner and Scott has the unique ability to guide me along the DIFFICULT challenge of learning the piano while, at the same time, challenging me to do my best. I'm sure he is as sensitive with children and treat each as the individual they are.

Merilyn is fantastic!

I am an adult student of Marilyn's and played the piano for 10 years growing up. I came to Marilyn wanting to start playing again after not playing at all for 7 years. My experience has been wonderful and I am surprised at how quickly I'm picking it up again. This is mostly due to Marilyn's positive feedback and constructive instruction. She is laid back and easy to work with and my experience playing as an adult is much more enjoyable than when I was younger.

Sarah loves piano lessons with Tammye because she is calm, funny and very "laid-back" in how she approaches children and teaching the piano. These qualities are gradually drawing Sarah back to an instrument that she loved initially but had withdrawn from due to very strict and almost frightening former teachers. I am so happy to see her loving the piano again and looking forward to her practices with Tammye. Thank you, Tammye, for encouraging and realizing that learning an instrument is a marathon for some and not a sprint!

Jordan D. Grapevine, TX

I graduated Magna Cum Laude from UTA with a bachelors degree in Music-Media. In my degree, I excelled particularly in music theory and did several honors projects involving specific theories and composition styles. Music theory is also a fundamental understanding that I use on a daily basis for my work in composing, arranging, playing, leading, etc.

Jordan is a talented instructor. Our ten-year old son is excited to go to his weekly lesson and motivated to practice at home. Dylan said Jordan is "extremely nice", and he is friendly to parents. I feel completely comfortable waiting during the lesson or I can run an errand.
I greatly appreciate the music Dylan and Jordan select for Dylan to learn. Given Dylan's enthusiasm, I hope he will continue lessons with Jordan for the foreseeable future. Jordan is a excellent role model for Dylan.

I met Michael at a gig and was blown away by all the original material he wrote and played on guitar. In a couple of years of lessons I learned more technique and and music theory than I did after 20 years on my own. Michael is a world class player/composer and a very patient teacher. You can't find any better.

Michael isn't just a great teacher and amazing guitarist, but he's a crazy good composer as well, which is a skill that can be difficult to find among many music instructors these days. If you're looking to get started from scratch or are a more experienced guitarist looking to break into that next level of playing, Michael would be a great choice as he's the real deal for sure. Great guy too!

I had been playing for a long while and knew that If I was going to get better I needed to play and learn from someone way better than I.

Michael is that person! At first I thought I would be learning some cool licks and techniques and I did, but Michael gave me much more than that.

I didn't realize I was going to learn theory as well. I feel that he gave me a solid foundation to move forward.

Thanks to Michael H., I'm not a leaf in the wind any longer...Thanks Michael!!
