Jennifer J.

Frisco, TX

I've been teaching Piano for 5 years and my students have gone on to playing in recitals and doing multiple performances. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to read music and learn fingering techniques and as time goes on you'll be able to play some of your favorite songs. I specialize in classical piano and chord reading, typically use the Alfred books. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

About Jennifer

Hi! My name is Jennifer J. I graduated with my Masters in Music from the University of Redlands. I received my Bachelor's Degree from the University of Louisiana at Monroe. Through my college career, I was able to perform in many musical productions. Some of these roles include: Yvonne in Miss Saigon (Louisiana Lyric Opera), Mother in Hansel and Gretel (University of Louisiana at Monroe), Erma in Anything Goes (University of Louisiana at Monroe), Euridice in Orfeo ed Euridice (University of Redlands), and Suor Angelica in Suor Angelica (University of Redlands). There are many performance comin
g up this year, also!

During my time in Undergrad, I had the opportunities to study abroad for two summers. I was accepted into University of Miami's Salzburg program (2009), and the following summer did Westminster Choir College's Florence Voice Seminar (2010). Throughout both of these experiences, I was able to work with world renowned teachers and coaches. These programs helped me grow as a teacher and a performer.

I am a member of NATS (National Association of Teachers of Singing), Texoma Region.

With the experience I have, I hope to start teaching you someday!

*** Lesson Details ***
I like to have fun in lessons, but also get things done and help my students grow. I do require my students to record every lesson, therefore helping them practice during the week. All in all, I want you all to feel comfortable in your learning environment, and have fun learning!

For voice, I teach multiple breathing exercises and techniques. Also, I will organize the individuals warm-ups according to the songs we are working on and voice type.

With piano, I use the Alfred book series. I learned piano using this series and I absolutely love the visuals and techniques. It makes it easy for parents to help with their kids.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Studio with Yamaha upright piano. Lots of stickers and fun stuff for young students. Parents are welcome to sit in the room or are welcome to sit in the living room during the lesson.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide the books, piano students need to pay $8 a book.

*** Specialties ***
In voice, I work the Alexander technique methods. I believe in releasing bad tension and freeing the voice.

In piano, I start with the Alfred Series. Once the student is in level 1B, I incorporate the use of a theory book. The understanding of theory is key in music!

Scott F.

Irving, TX

About Scott

I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in music w/ a piano concentration & a Master of Music in music theory degree both from the University of Maryland. I also started a Ph.D degree in music theory from the University of North Texas. I can help you become the best musician you can be & I can help you attain your goals. I have 15years full time teaching experience & I have also taught at the community college & at the university level. I love teaching very much & I love sharing it w/ others!

*** Lesson Details ***
I teach all levels & all ages we will have a lot of fun together
! I feel it's important that students learn letter names & that a student should practice counting. I will at times havea beginning student say letters, counts, & words out loud. I will have you tell me what styles & genres of music you like then we will set our goals to attain that. I have a nurturing & relaxed approach although I do not like to hear wrong notes! We will try to have a minimum of those! I use the Faber & Faber method I think the pieces in these books are very interesting & musical. After about 6 months your pieces will really start to sparkle!

*** Specialties ***
I use the Faber & Faber method books.

Marilyn S.

The Colony, TX

Piano lessons, beginners and above! See information in About Section for details!

About Marilyn

Music Job History:
My music teaching/playing background includes: private piano instructor at home studio, elementary music teacher in Lewisville ISD and Odessa Public Schools, piano accompanist for middle school/high school band Solo Contests, and former church accompanist for Methodist churches. I accompany both Lakeview and Griffin choirs throughout the school year.
Was Elementary Principal at Owen Elementary, The Colony, Lewisville ISD
Personal Information:
Have 3 children, now ages 24, 25, and 27
Love gardening, reading, playing piano, ringing handbells.

I believe performing
is an important part of music learning, so I schedule at least 2 recitals each year. Some of my adults prefer not to perform and that is okay too. I am a member of Carrollton Music Teachers Association and through them there are festival opportunities 4 times a year for those students who are ready to play for a judge!. The more you perform, the easier it gets!

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe that most people would say that they wish they could play the piano. Taking piano lessons keeps you practicing and working on improving your skills. I can always help a student to play better in some aspect of their playing. I break down skills into as small a step as needed so the student can understand what needs to be done. Reading music is similar to reading words, so sometimes the problem is not with the fingers being able to play, but what the student is seeing. I can take whatever series you are currently playing out of and move forward with you from that series.
Rhythm can often be a problem when playing and that usually is just a matter of getting that rhythm into your vocabulary and really hearing how it goes.
Fingering is another area that can be the reason that a passage is not working for you and I can help you figure those areas out. I always try to correct and help you improve by using humor and positive reinforcement. I have several books that work on technique in fun, short exercises that will apply to any songs or literature that you are working on.
We will spend some of every lesson sight reading (looking at music that you will practice at home). Improving your ability to read music at sight will make your piano playing more enjoyable for you.

As with any lessons, the more you practice, the more progress and fun you will have! Every student needs a spiral notebook that we will use to keep track of your lessons. I have found it best if I buy the books you need and then you pay me for the books - that keeps you from having to search at a music store for the correct books and I make sure you have the correct book/levels. If you prefer to find the books yourself, that will be fine also. I am flexible and want your piano playing years to be lifelong for you.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Yamaha Grand Piano, Baldwin Acrosonic Studio Piano, Suzuki 88 key electronic keyboard,

*** Specialties ***
*Teachers
marked as a Student Favorite have taught a minimum of 25 lessons and
have received the highest feedback rating from students.
Piano, Handbells, Music Theory, Sight reading
I can teach from any series, have tended to specialize more with beginning and intermediate students. I have taught from almost every series over the years.
Right now I have students in Faber & Faber, Bastien, John Thompson, Schaum, David Carr Glover, Hal Leonard, FJH, Dozen a Day, and Alfred series.
I think that breaking skills down into small steps works well for mastery and understanding. I like to expand my students' appreciation of different types of music, from classical to pop, looking for music that is at the student's playing level.

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.

Tammye D.

The Colony, TX

Piano is a wonderful instrument that anyone can learn at any age. From the first lesson I will have the student playing on the piano. I try to tailor the lessons for each student. We will move at your pace.

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, french horn, trumpet and piano in the DFW area. I also play percussion and trumpet in the Frisco Community Band and trumpet with 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.

Clarinet

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!

Rosanna H.

Dallas, TX

I've been teaching piano since 2007. I began learning piano at age 6, and continued to study and learn on my own throughout my childhood and adolescence. I progressed to a level which allowed me to test out of some piano courses in college. My varied musical experience informs my piano lessons. I focus on theory and understanding. Instruction begins using standard method book series, then progresses into preferred repertoire as appropriate.

About Rosanna

I have been teaching music students since my high school years in the late 1990s. Although I am primarily a high-level clarinetist, I have developed strong piano skills and can "double" on several other woodwinds. My primary clarinet/woodwind teacher at university was Alex Fields, who studied with renowned woodwind teacher and method writer Himie Voxman The university itself is known for its high-quality music degree programs. Over my 20+ years of performance experience, I've played in myriad performance situations; from unaccompanied soloist to piano accompanist to church praise band to full
orchestra and community band. This has given me an integrated understanding and appreciation for various styles and types of music.

I am known among my students for my patience, flexibility, and availability to answer questions between lessons. I teach primarily from a traditional classical background and take students in the direction of the genre(s) they want to pursue. I incorporate technology, such as mobile apps, to help students master concepts. I believe a strong basis in technique and theory builds the best musicians and the greatest appreciation for music. I include ear training to the extent it will benefit a student. I lay these foundations very early, tailoring my methods to each student's unique learning style and goals. I constantly improve my communication to promote clarity, retention, and the student's ability to articulate concepts. I don't necessarily teach to grow the next great classical artist (although I would be very proud of any student who reaches this level!); instead I teach to help each student reach his or her own potential, to better themselves, to give back to their communities, and to appreciate and enjoy music for the rest of their lives. Music instruction is proven to sharpen the mind for all ages. I also work in health care, on a behavioral health unit with a strong arts therapy program. This experience makes its way into my teaching style as well.

Practice: I expect students to practice regularly and I teach them how to practice well! With younger students I use a record-keeping system encouraging 5 weekly practice sessions of a length proportional to attention span.
