Harold C. Houston, TX

About Harold

I love teaching, and strive to ensure that each student meets his/her personal goals. My lesson environment is relaxed; I feel that if the student cannot get a little fun out of it, something is missing. I do, however, expect my students to practice and to pay attention. I enjoy teaching beginners, particularly young (8-15 year olds) children/teens. A beginner has no bad habits which need to be broken. Adults and experienced players are also welcome. I have particular expertise in jazz harmony, theory & improvisation. I teach the Lydian Chromatic Concept, among other improvisational methodologies. Experience: 1975-1978 Berklee College of Music, Boston MA Majored in composition & arranging. Studies with Russ DiFilipis and Bill Bresnahan. ...

Patient and very encouraging

Harold from day one has been great. He understands the difficulties in learning to play a music instrument. He gives you enough material to practice and master before the next lesson and makes you accountable for it. So great balance for a teacher that actually cares for his students. Not to much but enough that you see progress in learning how to play the guitar.

Carter N. Katy, TX

About Carter

I've loved music since I was able to walk. When I was 5 or 6, I would listen to my mother's stereo system, with Jim Croce playing on the 8-Track tape deck.....(ok, so I'm aging myself a little bit). I would lay on the floor in between the speakers which were turned inward toward my ears. I could lay there for hours, tapping my toes to "Bad Bad Leroy Brown", "Roller Derby Queen", "You Don't Mess Around with Jim", and many others. I would also listen to the Beatles, Seargent Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band", and "Revolution" and be completely taken away. I didn't realize it then, but what captivated me were the songs that were written to tell stories, and the music that brought the stories to life. As I grew into my early teens, I got into Kiss, Alice Cooper, Rush, Ted Nugent, and Jimi ...

My son started lessons when he was 8 on acoustic guitar. I randomly chose a teacher and was hoping for a teacher who could be patient yet firm and be able to inspire my son. Mr Carter is the best teacher I could have asked for - he is all that and more. Quite often, I listen to the teacher and student conversation with admiration as they are discussing ideas and Mr. Carter's openness to receiving ideas on a tune or what Ashwin wants to learn. The frank and open discussion results in motivating the young student as they feel a sense of importance and builds confidence (sometimes too much!). At the same time, when the situation calls for it, Mr. Carter is firm and points out when Ashwin hasn't practiced or not done well and that pushes him to do better. I look forward to many years ahead.

Jeremiah L. Houston, TX

Even drums has music theory. I teach it with all my lessons.

But, for the more advanced drummers, it is very important to have a small foundations of theory to help with the song writing process.
When playing drums in a band, it helps to understand what the other guys are talking about. And when you hear their language you can be more active and will be taken more seriously when you are able to follow along without a hitch! I can help with that.

About Jeremiah

As a Musicians Institute graduate, I've learned from exceptional drummers in the Los Angeles music industry. I gained and learned many tricks of the trade and can offer the same quality education to anyone. As a student myself, I realized that having great sound, solid timing and grove are just as essential as having cool beats to play. There are more technicalities to drumming than being able to play fast or having the best chops. Aside from learning how to play drums, knowing how to think about music, how to listen to music, and how to study music will give a great foundation to any student of any style. I first like to determine the students ability and understanding by working on a few coordination exercises and reading exercises. From a good foundation, I build a curriculum,

Getting Schooled

Technique is paramount when learning to play drums, if you don't have a good, solid technique, your just another sloppy drummer. Enter Jeremiah, an instructor with an excellent ear, picking up quickly on what it is I'm doing wrong, establishing a path to quick correction and selecting a technique right for my style of play. 3 lessons in and my playing is dramatically different, much cleaner and solid on the grooves. This guy has pushed my creativity to a new level and my confidence in live play stacks up to the crowd

Robert C. Houston, TX

I can teach music harmony and theory with an emphasis on contemporary music theory. I can also help students learn music theory from the 'common practice period' (classical) as I have studied that as well.

About Robert

Robert began playing guitar in Houston, Texas at the age of 12. It was not long before he began playing in bands and played his first professional gig at age 17. Robert performed in and around the Houston area for five years before deciding to study music on the college level. He attended the University of North Texas and later attended Musicians Institute. While a student at MI, Robert was given the Outstanding Student of the Year Award for 1991-'92. Robert began teaching at MI in the guitar school (GIT) in 1993.

Leni B. Magnolia, TX

It is essential to understand the building block of music in order to be able see, hear and communicate its meaning.

About Leni

BA in Music, composition and conducting from Hunter College (City University of New York) Diploma from the Conservatoire de Fontainebleau, France Studied with Louise Talma, Jacques Louis Monod, Nadia Boulanger Lessons are about learning to make music, not endless scales and arpeggios which so often lead to pain and injury. Sight reading, theory and interpretation are strong elements from the beginning. An overwhelming percentage of young, enthusiastic and talented children are discouraged early and give up the piano because they do not enjoy their lessons. Music is one of life's great joys. It should be fun. For the intermediate, and even the advanced, student, it is critical that much more attention be paid to the musicality of the playing and the understanding of the music.

Mr. Leni B. is second to none. He holds a BA degree in music, piano, composition and conducting from Hunter College, the largest college in The City University of New York and obtains a Diploma from the Conservatoire de Fontainebleau, France, I have no doubt about his talents and expertise. His knowledge is tremendously fabulous. What a true musician he is! As an adult, I wonder if Mr. Leni B. would be patient with me. The answer is yes. He patiently teaches me, and corrects my hands using the Taubman Approach to avoid chronical hand, wrist and muscle injuries. I am incredibly grateful to have him for my piano teacher. His passion and dedication are beyond excellent and have been transferred to me. I have brought home with a lot of inspiration after each lesson. I love his analysis and interpretation of each beautiful piece of music. The atmosphere he creates is lovely, friendly, welcoming and open. It is fun to study under his supervision. His encouragement is another key for me to practice the piano everyday. I am absolutely proud of him. It is even multipled when I have figured out he has more talents than just music and piano which are already amazing. Mr. Leni B. is the best teacher because he teaches from the heart not from the book. He is too good to be true.

I highly recommend Mr. Leni B. to anyone who wants to take piano lessons for fun or seriously.

An Amazing Teacher and Musician

I have had Leni as a teacher, and a friend, for several years. I am amazed at how far I have come, and I feel that the technique and the theory behind the methods he teaches are incredible and imperative to the progress I have made, both on the piano and in other areas of music. The atmosphere that he creates is a welcoming and stimulating learning environment. The Taubman technique that he teaches is understandable, helpful, and it is the most successful way to avoid long-term injury to the hands and wrists. I am incredibly grateful to him for his dedication and passion for his work and his students.

About Cameron

As a violin and viola instructor, my goal is to give my students lessons that are as fun and productive as possible. I teach my students all the essential technical and musical principles which help them to play the violin expressively, prevent them from developing harmful habits and help them reach their full potential. I do not use an exact method or course, but rather teach each student according to his/her particular needs. I teach beginner through advanced level. I have been privileged to study violin with some of the most respected violin teachers in the US. Many of my teachers were graduates of Juliard and other top music schools where they studied with some of the most famous violin teachers of the 20th century including Ivan Galamian and Josef Gingold. I have also studied ...
