Julie S.**

League City, TX

Learning piano is a great way to add music to your life. Whether you are looking for a teacher for your child, or you yourself want to learn, we can set you on the road to a musically fulfilling life.

Studies have shown that learning an instrument improves brain function and other life skills, from the abstract, like dedication and perseverance, to the more straightforward, like pattern recognition, math, and motor skills. I've seen my students of all ages develop these skills in their studies. It's amazing watching it happen, too!

I strive to keep music lessons fun. Music is a wonderful thing, and especially in my young students, I want to keep that innate love of music alive in them. I always want my littlest students to look forward to their lessons, and enjoying exploring the world of music with me. As their fluency grows, we gradually adapt the structure of the lesson, always keeping in mind their attention span.

In our piano lessons, you will not only learn what key to

About Julie

Hello, my name is Beth S. I am a professional Singer/Actress/Entertainer with 20 years of hands on experience. Most importantly, I am one of the last proteges of the late great world renown vocal coach, Judy Davis. I have developed an exciting curriculum based on my 4 yrs. with my beloved friend and mentor Judy Davis, (cut & paste into your browser "Judy Davis/Vocal Coach to the Stars" for more information) and now I want to share them with you. These lessons really work! I will teach you what she taught me and many legends of our time, such as Barbara Streisand, Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett. These lessons are not your average singing lessons and I am not your average singing teacher. I paid a fortune for these lessons and now I want to share her work with you. But wait, there's ...

Great Teacher!

Last year I started acting and singing lessons with Julie. She is wonderful. Very professional, and definitely knows what she's doing. She's very patient, and helped me with different vocal/acting exercises and gave me a lot of information I would need for acting and singing. Unfortunately, I had to stop taking lessons with her over the summer as I was unavailable to meet with her, but I am lucky enough to begin lessons with her again next week. I'm super excited to be seeing her again; Julie is an excellent teacher!

Talented Vocal Coach!

I've been taking lessons with Julie for a little more than 2 months now and I have seen major improvement in my voice. She teaches it in a way that helps me understand why we do the exercises that we do and answers any questions that I have. I was always kind of embarrassed to sing in front of people in the fear of not hitting some notes, but Julie is easy to be around and provides a comfortable environment for lessons. She is very patient and wants to see you reach your goals for whatever you wish to pursue with your voice.

awesome voice coach!

Julie really helped my daughter improve her vocal range by several notes in both directions and also assisted in preparing her for her performance. She is really flexible with the student's needs and personality and my daughter loves working with her. She goes beyond just being a teacher, she is very supportive and we love her for that too.

Debbie "Debra" T.

Houston, TX

I have had my own Piano Studio for both group piano classes and individual lessons with elementary age beginners, transfer students and adults. In the Public School settings, I have had access to keyboards to use as instruction in general music classes.

About Debbie (Debra)

Having been a public school teacher, as well as a private and group piano instructor, I've observed how differently students "digest" information, and piano lessons are a great way to make use of different learning styles. I emphasize knowing HOW to practice before you leave so you'll be successful at home, and you are welcome to contact me with problems during the week so you don't lose a week in progressing with your lessons. I've had students send a video of a tricky section to ask for alternative fingering, and photos to clarify how they are reading something!! I also perform with an orchestra and want to feel proficient among my peers, so I really know how it feels to make a mistake in front of everyone. I am here to help you feel proud of your progress. My primary teaching ...

Debbie T., my piano teacher

I am a senior who decided to learn the piano. This is something I have wanted to do all my life. I began with a private teacher and studied with him for 6 months. Although he was a very good instructor something was missing. I searched the internet and found TakeLessons.com and found Debra's profile. I have been studying under Debbie for one year as of January, 2014. She is the absolute BEST! I have only praise for her. She is patient, kind, funny, very very knowledgable, She is professional, energetic, and flexible. I just can't say enough good things about her. I see our relationship lasting for many years to come! I just love her!

Best piano teacher I have ever had!

I started taking lesson this year and I love it! This is my third time trying different places and teachers, I am very picky and have high expectations. I find Debbie's knowledge about music and piano amazing! She is the most patient teacher I have ever had, I have a hectic schedule and no matter how often I have to change lessons or come unprepared she always is understanding and encouraging. And her personality is just so warming, she is full of praise even at times when I know I don't deserve it, yet she strives to push you forward, if one way doesn't work for you she will find a way that you are comfortable with so you continue to progress. She knows just about EVERYTHING there is to know about reading and playing music, even the Italian versions. I love the personal feel of being at her home studio, and would recommend her to friends and family, I look forward to many more lessons in the future !

Jennifer G.

Spring, TX

Beginning students up to age 11 will begin with Bastien method. This curriculum is great at introducing interval recognition. I supplement this with fun pieces from Alfred, where they strengthen sight reading skills. Flashcards are also used as reinforcement.

Older kids and adults will begin with Alfred's adult course and progress quickly into independent playing.

For all ages - After the student has reached a level of more independent playing, the student/parent will help select the direction we take the lessons.
I use Hanon to aid in dexterity. Classical music, composition, and popular music are just a few of the directions we can take!

About Jennifer

I have been teaching piano to students of all ages since 1992, both to individual students and groups. I taught with the Music Learning Center of Michigan. I have been a music teacher and choir director for a number of years as well. For eight years I have played the organ and piano for Church worship. *** Lesson Details *** Music should be appreciated and enjoyed. Lessons should be fun without sacrificing quality. This is the approach I offer to students. I focus on teaching independence through music theory and sight reading. Performance is an important part of learning so I provide two recitals every year- one for Christmas and another in the spring, at the end of the school year. *** Studio Equipment *** Separate room dedicated to teaching with upright piano, also has digital ...

Leni B.

Magnolia, TX

The object is to learn to plat the piano with total control and a beautiful sound.

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.

I have two boys (6 and 10) taking regular lessons with Lydia for over two months now and I am very happy with her ability, patience and direction. Neither had taken piano lesson before, and she does a great job with them. They have learned so much in a short amount of time. Her students have a recital at the end of the school year, so they can show their abilities to friends and families. I highly recommend Lydia Long for piano lessons in Cypress/Fairfield area.
