Chord theory, improvisation, keys, modes and howto put it all together!

About John
Fun, professional, and relaxed. Experienced instructor since 1988. First paid public performance was in 1983, so I've been at this a while, and love it.

Students learn from popular music beginning with basic chords and strumming and simple melodies. After 3 months with correct practice the student should be able to strum a number of songs and change chords smoothly. After 3 months bar chords and more complex melodies are introduced, and beyond 6 months, one can expect to progress into music theory and improvisation.

John is very patient and knowledgeable. You can tell that he's been teaching for a very long time. I'm self-taught and have been playing for over 20 years and within minutes of viewing me play, John was able to pick out immediately my flaws. He gives me homework every week, and gives me a hard time if I do not do it. Exactly what I look for in a teacher.

Music Theory is a broad subject. it involves reading music, understanding scales and modes, chord progressions, ear training, and more. Basically, my approach is to start with the area or areas you need to most quickly learn to reach your short term goals, then expand from there.

About Eric
For almost 25 years, I've had the privilege to have worked with thousands of performers who study with me from all over the world. I teach in-studio at my two locations in Houston and in The Woodlands, Texas. I also work with students who come to me from all over the globe via online over-the-web Skype lessons.

Originally from Detroit, I enjoyed being a "Jack of all styles" singer/musician for over 15 years. I was a professional musician performing Classical, Jazz, Pop, Rock, Gospel, Musical Theater, Commercial and Studio work, along with being very involved in Contemporary Christian music. While I very much loved to perform, I found myself drawn much more to the joy of teaching. Vocal instruction and improvisational piano teaching eventually became my passion, and so I've poured my time and energies into teaching singers and players t
o become, well… better musicians!

· Vocal Training · In studio
I have been singing in Choirs and Bands for a number of years and learned more about my voice and singing properly in a 45 minute session with Eric than I have in all my years of performing. I now understand why I have been struggling to sing in my upper register and Eric has put together a personalized program to help me develop my voice and gain back my vocal range. Eric has a great sense of humor and made the session very enjoyable as well as informative. I look forward to my next session and would highly recommend Eric as an instructor.

Eric has coached me for more than two years. Each lesson was personalized and has helped me to improve gradually. As I could download the recording of the lesson, I was able to practice between lessons. Eric has been very supportive and was very open to my unique music taste. I really feel comfortable now singing thanks to him.

· Guitar · In studio
My name is Ronald S. At the age of 9, I started playing the guitar for my Father's Gospel Group who is a great Gospel D.J. (Big Clyde). Through the years I have taken several guitar courses from several instructors. In the last seven months I have taken instructions from Mr. Christian, I have excelled further and have learned more than all my other adventures.

Micheal's business based environment in an open studio type classroom is a must. In Micheal's unique style of teaching you not only learn to play the guitar, but he also instructs you in song with a spirit of being well satisfied.

As shoppers pass through the store they enjoy the sounds of students playing their guitars following the guidance of Mr. Christian. This also gives his students a chance to perform in front of other people giving them a finer definitions for the art of music. If you are looking for a music instructor, one who focuses in on your difficult areas and searches for improvement to make you the best musician possible in all areas, or if you are just looking to learn and have lots of fun, then Mr. Christian is your contact. Please visit him at one of his jam sessions..

Based on the students level, my program will act as guide to understanding all focal points of theory. Ranging from reading music, counterpoint, 4 part harmony, ear training, harmonic analysis, understanding all scales and there functioning modes, etc. Opening the mind to the realm of harmony will enable the abilities to write your own music as well as strengthen the relationship you have with what you listen to.

About Abdulrahman
Hello! I am a trombonist, educator, composer, and producer. I started learning music when I was in middle school and have adopted it as my lifestyle. I spent most of my initial studies under the wing of Weston Sprott; Principal trombonist of the Metropolitan Opera. Now, I am a full scholarship graduating student of the Manhattan School of Music and a full time member of the 6 time Grammy winning Afro Latin Jazz Ensemble led by maestro Arturo O' Farill. Support also comes to me from my sponsors/endorsers Antoine Courtois. I perform at venues all over NYC both as a sideman and a band leader! Music is a gift and it is meant to be shared! I hope that I could have the honor of sharing that with you and that we may grow together.

Music theory is essential in understanding any piece you may play on the piano.

About Jason
I am a professional pianist and have been playing for 32 years. I graduated from the University of Memphis with a Bachelor of Music in Piano Performance.

I believe that playing the piano should be a fun and enjoyable experience. I have experience in many styles of music including classical, music theatre, jazz, blues, rock n' roll, latin, and many other styles of music.

I have music directed and played shows mainly in Tennesee and Missouri but have performed in many other various states. I also spent time on the river on the American Queen Steamboat as co-music director and pianist.

I believe in a strong technique but also having the experience to play multiple styles of music. If you are an experienced player and am wanting to learn better sight reading skills or how to play from a piano conductor score, I have much experience in th
at. Or you might just want to be able to play popular songs with friends I can help with that as well.

Hope to be able to make great music together with you!
