About Moriah D.

About Moriah
I am a professional singer-songwriter, living in Nashville, TN, with a degree in Music Business from MTSU. I have been a touring artist for 10 years and have a passion for not only the craft of singing and songwriting, but for finding the uniqueness in others and helping them shine! In addition to writing and playing live, I currently write for and direct a youth choir in Nashville, TN, ages ranging from 12 - 19.

Students can expect to learn approachable, applicable techniques for healthy singing, developing and strengthening their voice, in a fun, down to earth setting. I believe no matter what level you're starting from, you can learn the tools to gain the confidence to accomplish your singing goals, with your given talents. Each lesson will be tailored to each students level, addressing both the actual skills involved with singing,
as well as getting comfortable expressing themselves and working past what might be holding them back from finding their personal voice.

As a songwriter, I can also offer one on one mentorship and lessons geared toward honing your craft, and working on your original music.

Whether it's singing for the very first time, getting to a place where you can impress your friends at karaoke, or strengthening your personal singing style in a healthy, sustainable way, I am excited to join you on your journey!

About Beth
In May 2011, I graduated from Texas Woman's University with my Bachelor's Degree in Music and a minor in Business Management. Music has been my passion since before I started taking piano lessons in third grade, and there was always an innate desire to master the keys. At age fifteen, I taught myself how to play guitar and started writing songs. In 2013, I became a published songwriter when my songs were produced on my church's Christmas Album ("Who Is This King?").

I have been teaching private piano lessons part-time from my home in Colleyville for seven years, and have instructed over 150 students. I have been blessed to be teaching full-time since January 2017, and it has been a dream come true to be able to invest all my time and energy into the precious gifts of my students. My students range from young beginners to intermediate a
nd advanced students, to beginner and moderate adults. Teaching is my greatest passion, whether it's of the classical genre, theory mastery, or equipping a student to use their gifts in worship. 

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions and I will be happy to discuss. I believe with you that you'll find just the right instructor to impart to your family!

About Owen
Here's a bit about myself:

Since 2016, I've been teaching math to high school and elementary students. I've always loved it. With teaching, I feel that I've grown more patient and more thoughtful in my general life. I recommend that anyone with the means try their hand at teaching. It is a particularly rewarding thing in and of itself.

The summer of 2016, I wrote the music, conducted, and acted as musical director for a full-scale musical entitled Get Hooked: A Pirate Musical. Currently, I'm working on a second full-length project, entitled Nuclear Love, that is set to be produced and performed in the spring of 2020.

I also have experience doing rock and jazz gigs on my electric bass. If you or student is also interested in learning these styles, I'd be more than happy to oblige!

My favorite books are Zen and the Art of Motorc
ycle Maintenance, The Giver, Ishmael, 1984, The Chess Garden, Invisible Man, Labyrinths, and Life of Pi.

My favorite quote is "infinity and beyond." Granted, there is no such thing as 'beyond' - unless you're referring to the power set of infinity. Honestly, I just love infinity. I could talk about the infinite hotel and fractals forever (pun noted and kept).

I've been taking French classes for about 5 years now. If you're interested in having a charming conversation in slightly broken French, je suis ton mec!

There are a few things more inspiring to than helping a student triumphantly arrive at a solution. Or watching them nail a big shift that was giving them trouble the week before. Learning anything comes with struggle, with difficulty, and I've certainly had my share of practice frustration. It's important to understand that such an experience is part of the process. I have no doubt that with the right ethic, the right teacher, and a desire to learn, anything can be achieved.

About Stephanie
As a passionate musician, I strive to find the gifts in all of my students by instilling a good relationship that fosters musical growth. Teaching piano and voice has been the most rewarding and integral part of my professional career.
A graduate of Northwest Missouri State University, I was actively involved as a music major as I gained my bachelor of science in music education. I performed as a member of the Celebration show choir as well as the University Chorale. My piano training began at the age of six and continues today. I now enjoy singing with my church choir, and singing as a soloist at my church.
One thing that has been important to me as I raised my children is that they were exposed to music and developed a true love of it. As young adults, we now enjoy as a family singing and playing instruments together to share our gi
ft of music with others.

About Jeny
Since I was a little girl, I had always dreamed of learning to play the piano. My parents could never afford to pay for lessons, so I had to wait until I was an adult. But let me tell you something, it doesn't matter what age you are! Everyone has the ability to learn if you put the time and energy into it! I learned using the Suzuki method, therefore that is my preferred method of teaching. Starting on book 2, you or your child will be playing music by well known composers such as Bach, Beethoven, Clementi, Schumann, and Mozart!

I will teach you correct posture, finger posture, technique, how to read music, and you will be given suggestions on what to practice and work on after each lesson. You will also learn to play with confidence.

For the students that come to my home to learn, they will also have the chance to perform in fro
nt of an audience on stage, on a 7' grand piano, twice a year. We will have these recitals once in the spring and then again in the fall. It's a great experience to have!

About Esther
Hi there! I'm Esther, a professional pianist and violinist. I graduated from Wheaton College with a Bachelor's of Music, specializing in Piano Performance.

Piano and violin students can expect to improve week by week in their technique and musical ability as they attend lessons and practice regularly. Each student is unique in musical background and goals. I get to know each student personally and create a personalized lesson plan for each student, so that they can achieve their musical goals and have FUN while doing it!

I teach a well-rounded music curriculum, focusing on basic skills such as note-reading, instrument technique, sight-reading, ear training, and learning a variety of repertoire. My students can expect to grow in foundational music technique and performance, so that they can play in a variety of settings with freedo
m, confidence, and expression.

I teach piano students of all ages and experience levels. I studied piano for 16 years and have been teaching piano professionally for 10 years. I can teach students to read music and play styles from classical to pop, as well as to play contemporary music using chord charts. I always take the goals and preferences of the student into consideration when choosing repertoire and making lesson plans.

I also teach violin students of all ages and experience levels. I studied violin for 10 years and have been teaching violin professionally for 5+ years. I can teach students to read music and play styles from classical to pop, as well as to improvise using chord charts. I always take the goals and preferences of the student into consideration when choosing repertoire and making lesson plans.

I also have many years of orchestral performance experience, ensemble performance experience (playing piano and violin), and have been a part of a church worship band for over 10 years. I love helping students learn not only how to be a great musician personally, but also to develop the skills to partner with other musicians to make meaningful music!

I look forward to meeting you and helping you have FUN as you become a better musician!

Esther is passionate and knowledgeable about music and she does an incredible job of sharing that passion and knowledge with her students. She instructed my two young boys in a music class along with 6 other young students. She was always prepared and taught the class a variety of musical instruments and the history behind each of them. She instilled a love for music and instruments, into my boys. We were sad to have her move so far away but the knowledge she passed along to my boys, is priceless. We highly recommend Mrs. Esther!

We were so glad to have Mrs. Esther for our daughters first music class. We loved her and so did our daughter! She is patient, kind, sweet and very knowledgeable in her instruction and we definitely recommend her. We wish she was back in South Florida for we are still searching for a piano teacher for our daughter. 🎶
