Kortnee is a fabulous teacher! She came into our home and taught my 9 and 11-year old daughters piano once a week. Both girls thrived and looked forward to their lessons. The progress they made in one year with Kortnee was impressive. We have moved out of state and the biggest regret is that we can't find another piano teacher like Kortnee. We miss her and her enthusiasm for teaching music. Best instructor ever!

Kortnee is amazing!!

I actually take both piano and flute from Kortnee. Her energy is contagious and she knows many styles of music. She is always ready to support what I want/need to do and can give me a tip within minutes that will help me forever. I can puzzle over a phrase or mood, and she will immediately "get it". She loves to see me have fun, and loves to help me over the rough spots.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

Felipe G.

San Antonio, TX

Whether you interested in performing solo or want to be in a band, I can help you get ready for your next big show!

About Felipe

Hello and thank you for viewing my profile. My name is Felipe Garcia and I am a self-taught music teacher. I began teaching music in 2010 and have loved it ever since. I believe learning to play music can be fun and easy, and I work hard to make sure your experience with music is one that will inspire you to keep playing for the rest of your life, for as Friedrich Nietzsche said, “without music, life would be a mistake.”

My experience with music began long ago when I begged my parents to buy me a drumset and they finally gave in and bought me one when I was 14. Prior to that, I had no real
experience with music except as a listener. I taught myself how to play by playing along with CDs of my favorite bands and eventually I felt like the drums wasn't enough, so I talked my parents into buying me a guitar. Just like with the drums, I taught myself to play the guitar by playing along with my favorite songs and favorite bands. Eventually I began performing in various bands, began writing my own songs, learned to play a variety of instruments, and developed enough confidence in my musical abilities to pursue a degree in music. Soon I would earn a bachelor’s degree in music theory from the University of North Texas and a master’s in music theory from Texas State University. Since then, I've been teaching music and performing in various San Antonio-area bands.

My teaching style is laid-back, yet I can be intense for students who really want to master the art of music. I understand that all students are different. There are many ways to learn music and I work hard to create lessons that fit the student’s individual style. I don’t shout instructions at students and expect them to do what I want; instead I try to create a positive environment where the students feel comfortable to express themselves however they feel.

Since I taught myself to play, I’ve always felt like an outsider in the music world. I always thought that since I taught myself, those who took lessons were better than me, and since I was never a band person in high school or college, I always felt intimidated by those who were. However recently I’ve learned that the best musicians are not the ones who have been playing the longest, but are the ones who love to do it, and as my student, it is my promise to you that you will love it too!

In addition to being tons of fun, learning to play music can affect your life in so many ways. Studies show that learning to play music facilitates the learning of other subjects and helps to develop the areas of the brain that are associated with language and reasoning, as well as supports spatial intelligence. Learning music also helps creative thinking, problem solving, and self-expression, as well as enhances discipline, craftsmanship, and the ability to work in a team. Learning music also provides opportunities to learn about the world and helps to develop compassion and respect for cultures that are not our own. And finally, music makes us take risks and provides us with a chance to conquer fear and anxiety.

Felipe has been great. I am learning a challenging new instrument - a 6-string banjo (aka a Banjitar) - which is a banjo/guitar blend. In less than a month I am feeling more confident and comfortable with the instrument. I am looking forward to learning more!

Felipe has been a fantastic instructor! My son is 4, nearing 5, and like most his age, has a limited attention span. Felipe has been able to keep him engaged and has been extremely flexible and easy to work with. He has introduced my son to not only drums, but also any other instrument he shows an interest in. I highly recommend him.

Tim K.

Schertz, TX

I have taught beginning trombone, guitar and piano to both children and adults. As a singer, choir director and vocal coach, I have worked with students from beginner to professional levels.

About Tim (William)

My name is Tim and I live in Schertz, Texas. I hold a BM and a BME from UTSA and an MM from Texas State. I also studied drama for 3 years at Trinity University. I have been a music teacher for 26 years. I have taught elementary music, secondary choir and college level music courses. I have performed in operas, musicals and plays in San Antonio and I have sung at Carnegie Hall in New York. I studied voice with Herald Stark and guitar with David Underwood. I have led a professional singing group and a professional dance troupe. I have composed choral music which has been performed in San Anton
io and entered into international competitions. I have spent years learning techniques to help students sing in tune and learn how to read music. I have experience teaching students of all ages from 3 year olds to adults. I teach students from Northeast San Antonio, Selma, Schertz, Live Oak, Universal City, Cibolo, Bracken, Garden Ridge, Converse, Marion, Seguin and New Braunfels.

*** Lesson Details ***
For my younger guitar students, I use the Progressive Guitar Method for Young Beginners series. This book includes a CD to help the student practice at home. For my older guitar students I use a progressive guitar curriculum of my own creation.

For my voice students I use Pathways of Song, Hall Johnson Spirituals, 24 Italian Songs and Arias, Alfred's Folk Songs for Solo Singers, Carl Fisher's The Young Singer series as well as song materials based upon the student's personal interests, such as arts songs and Broadway show tunes.

For my piano students I use the Piano Adventures series by Nancy and Randall Faber and the Alfred Piano Series. Music reading, ear training and theory is part of my instruction. With daily practice you will see a noticeable improvement in musicianship, aural skills and music-reading ability.

I am also an experienced tutor. I have worked with students of all ages and with various learning differences. I have tutored students in reading, writing, math, social studies, ESL and test preparation.

Through online instruction, I am available around the clock and around the globe for tutoring and music lessons.

About Christopher

-Let's get this quote corrected-

I am currently the percussion tech at Smithson Valley High School.

Also, I have been performi
ng live on stage and studio work on drum set for the past 17 years. Toured across the states recorded many c.d.'s and have even had songs on movie soundtracks.
Working with 2 reggae bands out of Austin, Tx.

The knowledge I have, about the many voices each percussion instrument has, benefits my students of the percussive arts.
It is very important that percussionist are everywhere loving the UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE of MUSIC.
Let's work together to achieve your GOALS and BEYOND.

*** Lesson Details ***

very unprofessional. I was not late, but instead went to the wrong apartment. Instead of asking if I was running late or got lost, he sent me a riddle about being late: "To be early is to be one time. To be on time is to be late. To be late is to be in trouble." I'm an adult, I don't need to be told i'm in trouble. Rubbed me the wrong way.

Robin M.

San Antonio, TX

I am certified through Level Four in the Kodaly Method of music education. this enables me to better meet the needs of all my clients, both adults and children, I am also an experienced piano arranger, so I can adapt music to fit a clients needs.

About Robin

I am an enthusiastic teacher who focuses on helping my students master the basics. I obtained a double degree in music and music education from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where I studied piano with Clement C. Petrillo. I furthered my education with a master's degree in music education from U.T.S.A.. My students will benefit from my knowledge of repertoire and technique to achieve their goals. I strive to find music my students will want to play that is accessible, but will also stretch their abilities. I have taught in both the public and private schools for over
thirty-five years and I know how important it is for students to feel both comfortable and challenged.

*** Lesson Details ***
I strive to maintain a comfortable, but professional, atmosphere in my home studio. I use the Robert Pace piano series as a base curriculum, but include other method books when supplements are needed. Beginners can expect to be playing with both hands, using basic chords to harmonize known tunes, and playing in three keys, C,F,and G, within three to six months. More advanced students can expect similar rates of progress depending on their musical goals and level of commitment.

*** Specialties ***
Kodaly method as applied to piano
