As a composer, I have been commissioned by Grammy-award winning choirs, written for orchestras, and ensembles, and have had my music performed all over the world. As a composition or theory teacher teacher, I believe that it’s about finding a way to express yourself and your vocabulary, which is completely unique to each person. It will be my focus in a short span of time to give you the tools to access the music you hear and want to create in your head and turn it into something tangible.

About Alex

I moved to Houston to study at Rice University's Shepherd School of Music this past fall (2019) and I am here pursuing my Master's Degree in Composition for the next few years.

Was skeptical of virtual lessons, but Alex is making it work. He's been great with my son, quick to respond, answering all our emails, texts and kept my wife and I in the loop. Very pleased so far.

I really enjoyed my experience taking voice lessons from Alex! I learned something new every lesson and was given the opportunity to sing some of my favorite songs along with some that were less familiar. Alex helped me with many audition pieces and made sure I was prepared and confident before going into every audition. He made every lesson fun and I would definitely recommend taking lessons from him!

Let's get you playing the music you've been hearing in your head! Each week, you'll get a personalized practice guide tailored to your goals. I love playing and teaching the cello, and I cant wait to share that passion with you.

My teaching style is as slow as you need, as fast as you can go. Technique should always serve the music, so we'll focus on creating art and telling the story that you want to tell. I'll work with you to create a personalized study plan that is engaging, positive, and progress-oriented.

Lessons are open to anyone, even if you don’t have a cello yet! I have worked with everyone from beginning students learning the basics of holding the bow to advanced players & colleagues looking for a discerning ear.

I generally recommend 45 minutes for beginners, but there's no time limit; I love to dive into details and can work as long as you can!

As an added bonus, all new students will receive the 70-page Cello Handbook I recently published as part of my online ...

I work with children, young people and adult singers--or those who WANT to be singers--in preparing them for auditions ranging from the elementary school musical to professional opportunities. I suggest 45-minutes to an hour for these work sessions, with as much lead time as possible before the audition. Bring sheet music and a smart phone or other recording device to my beautiful home teaching studio in Sherwood Forest. Let's get you ready to shine!

Teresa is an amazing music teacher! This was my first time getting singing lessons, and I was really nervous going into it, but she did such a great job at helping me feel more comfortable in the beginning. She’s so kind and she’s a great teacher too. The techniques and skills that she taught me have been extremely helpful, and she teaches them in a really easy-to-understand way. I would definitely recommend her!

Music is so much more than organized notes written on a piece of paper. Music is a beautiful language and powerful phenomenon that should be felt, experienced, and shared daily. I want every student to believe and feel that playing the flute is fun and worth sharing with others! I have been playing the flute for 16 years, have nearly a decade of performance experience, and have experience in private flute instruction. I specialize in teaching beginner flute students, and as your teacher, it is my primary goal to not only help you learn how to produce a lovely sound on your instrument and read music but to encourage a deeper love and appreciation for the music itself that goes beyond the classroom. As you learn to breathe life into your flute and play songs, you will also be building a solid foundation in note reading, music theory, sight-reading, proper technique, and more! All ages are welcome, and lessons will be customized and catered to meet your individual needs and goals. ...

About Katie

Hello! Music is my delight and passion, and it has been a significant source of both joy and healing in my life. I began my flute journey in 6th grade and making music has been the bliss bringing me to life and making me smile ever since. With each lesson, it is my primary goal to instill that sam

Katie is a wonderful instructor due to her patience and diligence. She takes her time when explaining and gives valuable instructions and advice. I would highly recommend her as an instructor.
Arnie
Katie is one of the most patient and willing individuals I know when it comes to teaching others no matter the subject. She has taught how to read music with uncanny ease. She is teaching herself (and her mother) how to play the Ukulele by note reading. Her flute renderings are fun and soothing to listen to. She never stops working on her knowledge and understanding of music.

Katie Miller has a wonderful personality, she has a natural ability for teaching. I have dyslexia and trying to learn how to read music has been challenging for me. She has been able to break down music theory with the use of color and other examples that has helped me understand this concept. I’m enjoying learning how to read music.

"Stephanie is an absolutely wonderful teacher. Not only is she a delight to be around, she's completely invested in your goals from the beginning.

Don't let Stephanie's bubbly personality fool you--there's no slacking in her lessons. It's worth it for the progress, especially since Stephanie is right there as your #1 cheerleader.

Stephanie will work with you and adjust her teaching style according to your needs. She explains technique in different ways until it clicks for you, and then she reminds you with the cues you find most helpful. Everybody learns differently, so a flexible teaching style like Stephanie's makes a huge difference in a lesson's effectiveness.

I've already recommended Stephanie to several of my friends who might be interested in singing lessons. Whatever the subject, I'm confident that Stephanie will give you the push you need toward reaching your goals."

Spice Up Your Playing with these Essential Guitar Strum Patterns

Many guitarists have a tendency to focus most of their practice time and energy on left-hand fretting technique. Although the left hand is very important, mastering different rhythms and guitar strum patterns with your right hand adds a whole new dimension to your guitar playing. Understanding Guitar Strum Patterns Start by playing a simple chord progression. Ideally, you should be able to play through the chords without looking at the fingers on your left hand.
