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 hometown of Lubbock, where I graduated from Texas Tech University with a BA in English and a minor in Music, having played guitar and saxophone in the Jazz Band in addition to taking several classes in theory. During this time, I was giving private lessons in Lubbock and setting up arts education programs at the Lubbock Boys & Girls Club and The Buddy Holly Center. Since then, I have started a family and begun writing fiction, both of which have given me a much wider spectrum through which to channel my songwriting.

*** Lesson Details ***
These are your lessons. I see my role as being nothing more than helping you get to the place that you want to be, in whatever fashion and at whatever pace that you set. While it would be disingenuous to say that I don't take pride in watching my students succeed, I believe that the instructor should only be as concerned with measurable results as the student. If the student wants to learn three scales and two songs every week, then it's the instructor's responsibility to have those ready to go, along with a few suggestions for additional work. If the student wants to learn a few chords and then spend ten minutes talking about Led Zeppelin, it's their dollar and their time to spend however they wish.

All of which to say, my teaching style varies dramatically from student to student. It can be laid-back, strict, calm, or rapid-fire, depending on the learning environment that the student prefers. My experience is that this approach leads to the greatest level of student satisfaction, which I consider to be of the utmost importance.

*** Studio Equipment ***

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 R.

Austin, TX

About Heather

Hello future student!

My name is Heather R., I'm a voice, guitar, songwriting and audio technology teacher, experienced in teaching students of all ages, backgrounds and levels of learning. I specialize in blues, rock, jazz and folk.

I am a professional musician in the Austin area, while working on my Master's Degree in Acoustics at UT.

In the past I've won awards for my songwriting including first place in the blues category of the 2009 West Coast Songwriter's Competition and Honorable Mention in the Berklee College of Music Songs for the Social Change Contest, also in 2009.
I gra
duated from the Berklee College of Music in 2010 with a Bachelor's Degree in Professional Music. Ever since I've been working as a music teacher, performer, audio engineer and songwriter.

I know a lot about the music business and the music world. I want to help you obtain your musical goals and find the pro musician within! Mostly I want to help you build your self-confidence and develop your musical craft!

I truly believe anyone can obtain their musical dreams, it just takes hard work, dedication and the right guidance.

*** Lesson Details ***
I set up a list of goals that a student wants to achieve over the course of several weeks. I make sure these goals are challenging for the student, while being realistically obtainable. These goals can vary from learning the chords to a particular song, learning the solo of a song, getting ready for an upcoming audition, mastering a scale or mode, anything!

I like to break things down into digestible chunks for the student. I never want a student to feel overwhelmed or discouraged.

While working on these goals I simultaneously slip in technique and music theory. I don't like to beat a student over the head with theory, but I do think it's important to learn and be exposed to it while you're working on your goals. Theory can be a very powerful tool for a musician. Whether it's as elementary as knowing what a twelve bar blues is or as advanced as tonal counterpoint, knowledge is power!

I’m going to push you in a positive way to work hard everyday to achieve your goals. I want you to feel the satisfaction of working hard, making progress, achieving your goals and being proud of yourself for what you've accomplished!

I won’t tolerate laziness. I will always be honest with you as to where you are with your progress. Unfortunately there are no shortcuts in learning. You've got to put the work in. It will pay off, I promise!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Online Lessons Only

In my studio:
-Piano

*** Travel Equipment ***
I email all materials either in PDF of Mp3 format. I expect all students to be responsible for their lesson materials.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in blues, jazz, Latin, musical theater, pop and rock n' roll. I have a huge background in classic rock and have been the leader singer in several rock and pop rock bands over the years. I also frequently perform solo acoustic blues and studied jazz at the Berklee College of Music in Boston. Unfortunately I don't teach classical, metal, or hip hop. Any other genre I'm good to go!

I am also an expert in music theory and am a working audio engineer.
When I teach I like to explain the methodology behind a subject, so a student can understand it completely and not just have a general sense of it. Things click in a student's mind when they understand where something came from and why it is the way it is. Whether I'm teaching voice, guitar, piano, bass, songwriting, engineering, performing, or theory, this method of teaching has always worked very well for me.

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 ar
e 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 what I do!

*** Lesson Details ***
I teach adults beginner to advanced, and teens who are committed to developing their vocal skill.

It is critically important to me that I give honest feedback, but not by judgement. I will never say to you "That sounds bad" for two reasons:

1) No one feels better and more motivated to practice when they are given a judgement over their singing.

2) The phrase or message of "that sounds bad" is completely useless for learning how to sing, because it doesn't describe what is happening. You can have perfectly healthy singing be categorized as "bad" simply because the listener doesn't like that genre!

I give feedback through details. So if you don't sound "good" to yourself, I will help you figure out whether you are making that sound in a healthy way. Assuming that the singing is already in tune, we make sounds we don't like when we are tightening our throat. This is about half the time. The other half of the time, we are simply singing in a sound color/genre that we don't like that we picked up in our singing for whatever reason, and it's fairly simple to change that.

Because I'm only going to teach you what works for you, we may have to try a lot of things to help you find the coordinations involved in singing, but you'll never be stuck with the same exercises that don't seem to help!

I work with the students that have tried other teachers but felt that the instructions weren't clear enough to apply, and had no explanation as to why they have to do a particular exercise.

I explain every exercise that I give in detail and I make sure that every exercise will work towards your vocal goals. I will explain what habits apply to ALL vocal sounds and what habits only apply to some, why some people can belt and why others strain immediately when they try, and help give you a map to navigate through all the sounds that your voice can make.

Confidence on Stage

Some of my students are perfectly happy with their technique but fear singing in front of other people.

Technique can be helpful for confidence on stage because you can remember what to do with all the nervous energy rather than just try to hold it back. Technique alone, doesn't equal confidence.

In lessons, we learn what it takes to develop your confidence on stage, and many times this has to do with building a solid memory of your song.

If you know your song backwards and forwards, every note you sing is memorized and 100% comfortable, and your mind and heart are on a mission to express the message of the song, nervous energy is just extra fuel to the fire on stage. This is good!

As a singer, one of the toughest things for me was memorizing my song and figuring out when a song was performance ready. Between my college experience with voice professors, professional singers of multiple genres, acting experience, and my own research, I was able to develop ways to both quickly and solidly learn a song.

During lessons we will take efficient routes to show you what parts of the song are the easiest to remember, which ones need more repetitions to remember, and how to get them solidly memorized so you feel ready to perform them.

Another block to confidence on stage, besides technique and memorization, is knowing where to direct your thoughts and focus when you're singing. If your song is memorized and practiced, we'll work on how express the message using concrete, specific ways to make your expression of a song come alive on stage.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano and Voice Recorder.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Here are your supplies you will want for every lesson:

-CDs and/or MP3s of your songs
-Notebook paper
-Recording device of some kind
-List of songs you would like to sing
-Pencil
-Sheet Music we are working on

*** Specialties ***
I teach vocal habits that make all genres to sing easier in every way.

I also teach:

Sight-Reading
Singing Harmony
Speaking Technique
Music Theory for Singers

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!

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.

I take vocal training for my two children and I must say that K'Shae is brilliant. She is not just a teacher, but very attentive and gets the best out of my children. She has received many vocal accomplishments and is a good teacher to take training under. Her passion and enthusiasm towards music is very visible. Her lessons are not just for money and rather a service.
My kids are doing very well and they have achieved correct vocal techniques. Best music teacher we have had.

What a great person!
Kiki is not just a singing teacher she is a wonderful person. We noticed her love for music since our very first meeting when we contacted her for our extremely shy, 10-year-old daughter. Her attitude is simply amazing and she has been able to create a friendly relationship with our daughter, who now is eager to attend her lessons. Kiki has helped our girl a lot, not only from a “vocal” point of view but also gave her a lot more self-confidence. So glad we met this angel.
