I am a passionate musician and educator. I have worked for many years as a private flute instructor on both the modern and baroque flute, gaining experience teaching many age and skill levels. Lessons are tailored to the individual needs and goals of the student, with an emphasis on developing tone, technique, and breathing skills. Students will also be encouraged to think about the music that they play. As a musician, I developed an interest in the field of Historical Performance over the course of my undergraduate degree. In this field, one not only studies the music of past periods, but studies its relevance to the social, political, and cultural circumstances of its time. I believe this puts me in a unique position as a music educator, as I understand the importance of teaching students to connect musical works to their historical contexts. This is a skill that will provide them with a richer understanding of all types of music, including both classical and popular, and give them ...

This is a great class for any aspiring musician, or any student,looking to gain some basic understanding of music. Hopefully, the student will gain some appreciation of music as well. The concrete foundations of music, rhythm, melody and harmony will all be discussed in detail. I've been teaching this class for about ten years and found it helps musicians with there own performance.

About Paul

I am a musician who has played in many bands. My primary instrument is piano and voice. I also play rhythm guitar. My current group is a "Who" tribute band, performing a complete history of the rock group, The Who. Please check out our website magicbustour.com I play by ear but also read music.

John is a fantastic instructor. He has a love for educating others on musical expression and he is a wellspring of musical knowledge. He provides a depth to the piano that I wouldn't have noticed if I taught myself how to play.

John emphasized how to shape musical phrases to make music as opposed to a collection of notes. He had a good ear for honing in on my weaknesses such as how some notes that I played stuck out or the movement of my arms. Most importantly, he taught me how to approach practicing the piano in an effective way. I learned how to listen to myself and how give each note, phrase, and piece the attention and musicality it needed to sound beautifully.

For an adult learner as myself, he was accommodating with how busy I was. He adjusted to my needs and work schedule and taught at a reasonable pace. However, he also never veered from his expectations and praised what I was doing right and provided methods to fix what I was doing wrong.

Although there were times when John expressed his passion for music by delving into tangents on the broader historical significance of pieces, his mini-lectures were never irrelevant nor inappropriate. For example, he commented on how in waltzes, the rhythm on the left hand would need to emulate how a Romantic era string section would play it. For anyone who is serious about how or why pieces of music are meant to be played in a certain way, John is great about contextualizing pieces to make them sound great.

Most importantly, he made practicing piano something that was both enjoyable and challenging, which is difficult to find in a teacher. I owe a great deal of my musicianship to John and he met my expectations of learning the piano. Thank you!
Kenny
John is really great. He takes the time to understand what your goals are and teaches according to your needs. He is patient and provides constructive comments.

I’ve never taken a lesson with Jonas, but in nearly three decades of covering local goings-on as Music Editor at the Austin Chronicle, I can certainly attest that this man is a musical GENIUS. And as I type that word, I’m trying to think of another local musician I would so readily apply said assignation to. His accumen on six strings is preternatural. In playing with a broad cross section of bands and individuals, Jonas asserts a truly uncanny ability to coax any sound out of his instrument at any give moment. When he does, it’ll be the ONLY sound that should’ve have come forth at that juncture. That’s a rare feat in ANY musician. Jonas’ confidence as a musician/guitarist/producer is only equal to his empathy for others and both remain palpable as his greatest gifts outside of shit-hot natural ability. If I played guitar, I’d absolutely lose my mind at the opportunuty to be mentored by Jonas. You will find NO ONE BETTER. Amen, y’all.

"always patient and professional

as an adult learner i had some trepidation about taking flute lessons again. however, it is so good to be taught by amy, she breaks down music and offers a manageable script. i was a better flutist after my first lesson and continue to improve.
i love the setting in her home. it is a warm inviting space that puts me at ease.
in her instructions she is always clear and patient. she is professional in her home even with her family near.
it has been a joy getting to know her family, as well.she is able to function masterfully in her own home.as ateacher."

5 Little-Known Factors That Affect Your Piano Posture

Proper piano posture: the words alone are enough to make any pianist wince, straighten up, and make every effort to maintain it, at least for a few minutes. You may not realize that when you’re playing the piano, your posture is a key factor in your technique and whether or not you feel at ease practicing the instrument. Because practicing is a repetitive activity, it’s important to do it well. Otherwise, you risk reinforcing bad habits through repetition. If you struggle with ma …
