Tammye D.

The Colony, TX

Piano is a wonderful instrument that anyone can learn at any age. From the first lesson I will have the student playing on the piano. I try to tailor the lessons for each student. We will move at your pace.

About Tammye

I am a 2008 graduate of the University of North Texas with a Bachelor of Arts in Music degree. While at North Texas I taught trumpet lessons in the Denton area. I have also taught piano, clarinet, and saxophone as well as all the other brass instruments. I have performed with the UNT Concert Band, the UNT Brass Band, the UNT Nine O'Clock Lab Band, the Collin County Jazz Band, and the San Jose Metropolitan Band.

Currently, I teach clarinet, saxophone, trumpet and piano in the DFW area. I also play trumpet in the both the Frisco Community Band and the Frisco Community Brass Ensemble.

**
* Lesson Details ***
I am a laid back teacher who gets you playing from the first day.

*** Studio Equipment ***
All students are required to purchase the Musician's Practice Planner, which you can find at any music store. You will also need to get any books that we play through (but I'll give you time to get them, so don't worry.) Any books that we use will be easy to find and won't cost a whole lot of money.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will always bring my instrument with me when I attend a lesson, so I expect my students to do the same when they come to my studio. Also, make sure you have any books and music that we will be playing out of. I always have a copy of anything that we are playing, so I expect the student to have a copy as well.

*** Specialties ***
Trumpet
Clarinet
Alto Saxophone
Piano

christabel W.

Frisco, TX

According my learning and teaching experience, I will use book of “Teaching Little Fingers To Play” by John Thompson for the beginner. Also I will offer free lesson for the parents and let parents and kids play duet. If the intermediates I will use Keyboard wellness method to teach student that will help them to build a strong foundation of classical piano skills.

I love working with students of all experience levels and help them achieve on states theory test and piano festival.
 

About christabel

Hi, My name is Christabel W. and I can’t wait to meet you! I am a responsible and creative teacher with years of teaching experiences. My major was piano and graduated with the Certificate of Completion Music Field of Study. I enjoy working with young children as well as adults and teaching all ages (kindergarten-adults) and all levels (beginner-advanced) students. Due to a member of Plano Music Teacher Association (PMTA) and a Certified member of Music Teachers National Association, I will provide the opportunity for my students to participate PMTA’s Piano Festival and States Theory Test (1-1
2 level).

My goal is to let students have fun with music and to find melodies that mean something to play. I will provide quality individualized lesson plans to my students while they learn the music they also learn the music theory, sight reading, and ear training. In Addition, I was studying with Dr. Allison and attended Sheila Paige's Keyboard Wellness Seminar, I will use Keyboard Wellness method to teach my students how cooperate the body, arm, hand, and finger moving together to make the playing so easily, efficiently, and music artistry.

I speak English and Chinese.

I had my first lesson with Scott last week and I am stoked I found him. He is super easy to work with and he has excellent communication skills with an exeptional ability to teach. I highly recommend Scott whether you are a beginner to advanced. I would characterize the lessons as engaging and fun!

Within the first lesson it was obvious how much Scott is passionate about playing music and helping other musicians succeed. What I really liked about Scott was that he didn't beat around the bush when it came to finding areas that I could improve upon, but in the same respect, he made sure he celebrated the successes and progress being made. That's the kind of teacher that can motivate someone to improve and feel fulfilled after the hard work being put into a craft. I unfortunately had to stop taking lessons due to outside circumstances and if I got the opportunity I would take more lessons with Scott.
