Awesome Experience

I've enjoyed my lessons so far. However, I would like more practice on scale warm-up's before going directly into singing. This would provide more time to work on my breathing technique. The Italian piece is wonderful!
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.

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
Andrew D. Houston, TX

About Andrew

Music is my life. As cheesy as that phrase goes, for me, it holds true. I'm Andrew. Everything I do and have been doing has been geared towards music. I've been in one working/gigging band or other without break for the past 8 years. I began intensely learning to play guitar at the age of 9 and have not stopped. The second I started learning I knew that that was what I wanted to do. Fast forward to now, and here I am loving every minute of it. I took lessons of my own as a kid, which helped shape me greatly. I then picked up bass at the age of 13. I've taught personalized lessons for over 5 years now without a single complaint. At this point in my musical career, the majority of my experience and attitude has come from being "in the field". I've played South By South West, ...

I’m a total guitar beginner and have been taking lessons with Andrew for about 6 months. He’s easy going, fun, encouraging and definitely talented. I have learned so much from him and with his guidance, I’m certain I will continue to progress. I’m glad I stumbled across him, great teacher.

Anthony P. Conroe, TX

About Anthony

I have been making a living solely through performing, recording, or teaching music since 2005. I began playing guitar in 7th grade (1994) and have been in bands and performing ever since. In that time I have learned all about the music industry from playing to recording to the business to teaching to running live sound to touring and everything in between and beyond. I have been fortunate enough to play with many amazing musicians throughout my career. Most notably I was in two bands that had much success. In those bands I was able to open up many shows and festivals with national/platinum selling acts. I also made a living touring the US for 7 years as a headliner and/or opening act playing in front of 10’s to 1,000’s of people every night. My approach to teaching is to find
