Jennifer G.

Spring, TX

Twenty years of experience working with students of all levels and ages has shaped me into the teacher I am today. Although I do tailor my sessions to suit the individual student, here are some expectations you can have of me.
Beginning students up to age 11 typically begin with the Bastien method. This curriculum is great at introducing interval recognition. I supplement this with fun pieces from Alfred, where students can strengthen sight reading skills. Flashcards are also used as reinforcement.
Older kids and adults will begin with Alfred's adult course and progress quickly into independent playing.

For all ages - After the student has reached a level of more independent playing, the student/parent will help select the direction in which we progress.Classical music, composition, and popular music are just a few of the possibilities!

All lesson books and materials are provided by me and are included in the cost of lessons. Students are welcome to provide additional pieces

About Jennifer

I have been teaching piano to students of all ages since 1992, both to individual students and groups. I taught with the Music Learning Center of Michigan. I have been a music teacher and choir director for a number of years as well. For eight years I have played the organ and piano for Church worship.

*** Lesson Details ***
Music should be appreciated and enjoyed. Lessons should be fun without sacrificing quality. This is the approach I offer to students. I focus on teaching independence through music theory and sight reading. Performance is an important part of learning so I provide two
recitals every year- one for Christmas and another in the spring, at the end of the school year.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Separate room dedicated to teaching with upright piano.

Ms.Jennifer is the most fantastical teacher ever, but really, she is. My sister and I (Grace) have been taking lesson for 6 years now and we've really enjoyed her the whole time. She works around our crazy (and I mean CRAZY) schedule, multiple times. Taking piano lessons from her has been a really fun experience and I'll keep doing it as l can. Now I'm in 6th grade and can read treble and bass clef and can play much more than I thought I would be able to when I first started.
Now to outdo Grace, Ms. Jennifer is sooo cool and the bestest (not a real word)teacher in the whole universe and has like superwoman powers on the piano. I totes(once again not a real word, that's just how good she is) recommend her.

Mrs. Jennifer has been the greatest most awesome teacher I have ever had. I started lessons when I was 9, and in 6 short years I've become a musician. I feel like I can read/play any piece of music (although I can't...at least not yet). I've learned so much by taking lessons with her. When I started, I barely knew how to read treble clef! Now, this year as a high school freshman, I was able to be in the marching band as a synthesizer player. I can't put into words how much she means to me! Not only is Mrs. Jennifer an amazing person, but she is an amazing teacher as well. I have so much fun at all of our (my sister and I) lessons and I'm dreading college, just because I can't have lessons every week with her. I couldn't have asked for a better role model, and I definitely recommend her as a piano teacher. (As long as she still has time to teach me)

Troy W.

Houston, TX

I have been teaching this subject for over 13 years. The main curriculum for beginners is Alfred's Basic Piano Library. There are three beginner levels (beginner, late, adult) and one will be selected after the first meeting. For non-beginning students, the course of study will be developed based on past experience, current abilities, and goals. It is not necessary to know how to read music at the first lesson for beginners. However, learning to read is a part of subsequent lessons. Music is not learned "by ear." A certain amount of theory will be a part of every lesson just as technique and repertoire. Students should come to the first lesson prepared to discuss their background & goals and the plan of their course of study.

About Troy

Composer Troy W. graduated from the New England Conservatory, earning his Bachelors, Masters (cum laude) and Graduate Diploma while studying with mentor Malcolm Peyton. After spending a year studying with Lukas Foss in Boston, Mr. W. moved to Houston in 2001 where he continued graduate studies at Rice University's Shepherd School of Music.

During his time as a teacher with the Michael P. Hammond Preparatory Program at Rice University's Shepherd School of Music, Troy taught classes in music fundamentals and music theory for pre-college students. He has also served on the faculty of the Summ
er Institute for Piano teaching courses in Form & Analysis for pre-college students.

Troy also has maintained a private studio, tutoring and teaching private lessons in composition, ear training, voice, piano, literature, and history for over ten years. Students who have studied with him come from a wide range of backgrounds with different goals. Those who have continued with musical studies in college have consistently placed out of at least the first two semesters of music theory and achieved advanced placement in their chosen fields of study. Those who chose a different path continue to benefit from the education and training they received from taking music lessons.

*** Lesson Details ***
There is no "standard formula" to lessons. Each student has their own unique background, needs, and goals. Lessons tend to be somewhat casual but are structured in such a way as to meet the unique requirements of the student.

To accomplish your goals, there are a few requirements and basic expectations that the student and parent must meet.
The first is practice. Students are expected to practice daily for at least the length of their lesson time. This, above all else, is essential to progress. It is also expected that a parent will attend lessons for students who are too young to drive themselves here. It's important for a parent to guide the student's practice time (particularly for younger students) to ensure that the most is gained from it. This is why I ask that a parent observe lessons.
Each student or parent should bring to each lesson a notebook, pencils (with erasers). The notebook will be used to record notes about each lesson, homework, practice advice, etc. Pencils (not pens...nobody's perfect!) are used by composers to record their creations and performers to mark their music. Both of these essential practices are subject to changing thought and must be open to change. So no ink, please!

Performers: It is not necessary to know how to read music at the first lesson for beginners. However, learning to read is required for subsequent lessons and will be a large focus for all non-readers. Lessons are not learned "by ear." A certain amount of theory will be a part of every lesson just as technique and repertoire. Concerning repertoire, it will be selected based on the student's learning needs but also with their input. The main emphasis on performance lessons, however, will be technique and reading. Students should come to the first lesson prepared to discuss their background & goals and the plan of their course of study.
Note: Voice students must be at least 16 years of age.

Composers: Just as with performers, it is not necessary to know how to read music at the first lesson. However, learning to read is required for subsequent lessons. Many young composers have great ideas but can only hear them in their heads or play them on an instrument. Lessons will allow you to obtain the skills to write them down with greater speed, accuracy, and clarity. More advance students will also include exploring a wider range of harmonic languages, advanced notation, instrumentation, orchestration, and aural skills. Students should come to the first lesson with examples of their work, either written, notated, or recorded in a digital format. They should be prepared to discuss their background & goals and the plan of their course of study.

IMPORTANT NOTE: the studio space is also inhabited by two lovely cats. Do consider this when signing up for lessons.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Yamaha DGX-650 weighted 88 keys full sized keyboard
area for parents to sit and observe lessons.

*** Specialties ***
Main area is in classical music and media scoring with secondary focus on musical theatre vocal performance and composing/arranging.

Troy was attentive to details and made very good suggestions on how to improve my sons' technique. He is very organized, and precise, while keeps the lessons fun. His assistant teacher, the unforgiving gray cat keeps an eye on the students when they do not perform. :-)
The boys were a bit discouraged when he told them that they have to practice some of the basics as there seem to be holes in their knowledge. I hope with the proper technique an structure they will quickly progress in piano and in enjoyment and appreciation of music.

Robert C.

Houston, TX

Even though guitar is my major instrument, I had to play piano all through college as part of my music degree. Therefore, I can help someone learn to play the piano from beginning to intermediate level.

About Robert

Robert began playing guitar in Houston, Texas at the age of 12. It was not long before he began playing in bands and played his first professional gig at age 17. Robert performed in and around the Houston area for five years before deciding to study music on the college level. He attended the University of North Texas and later attended Musicians Institute. While a student at MI, Robert was given the Outstanding Student of the Year Award for 1991-'92. Robert began teaching at MI in the guitar school (GIT) in 1993. He has played with Bo Diddley, Tim Bogert, Chevy Chase, Floyd Radford, Dea
con Jones, Joe Houston and countless others. He has performed for Buddy Ebson and Chevy Chase and has partied with the Monkees. In addition to playing guitar Robert also plays and teaches bass guitar and piano.

*** Lesson Details ***
Robert teaches serious beginners from ages 5-99. He can also help intermediate, advanced students and pro players fine tune their skills and learn to play the music they hear. His laid back but structured approach has helped many of his students over the years become solid musicians and attain their musical goals. Robert uses a combination of his own teaching materials combined with the best of what he has learned over the years studying with countless world class teachers and players. With his over 20 years of teaching experience he is able to synthesize all this knowledge and make it easily accessible to all of his students. Robert teaches a variety of styles which include blues, classic rock, R&B, pop, country and jazz. All lessons are tailored to the individual student's interests and goals. In addition to this Robert makes his lessons fun too!
