I am a 2008 graduate of the University of North Texas with a Bachelor of Arts in Music degree. While at North Texas I taught trumpet lessons in the Denton area. I have also taught piano, clarinet, and saxophone as well as all the other brass instruments. I have performed with the UNT Concert Band, the UNT Brass Band, the UNT Nine O'Clock Lab Band, the Collin County Jazz Band, and the San Jose Metropolitan Band.
Currently, I teach clarinet, saxophone, trumpet and piano in the DFW area. I also play trumpet in the both the Frisco Community Band and the Frisco Community Brass Ensemble.
*** Lesson Details *** I am a laid back teacher who gets you playing from the first day.
*** Studio Equipment *** All students are required to purchase the Musician's Practice Planner, which you can find at any music store. You will also need to g
et any books that we play through (but I'll give you time to get them, so don't worry.) Any books that we use will be easy to find and won't cost a whole lot of money.
*** Travel Equipment *** I will always bring my instrument with me when I attend a lesson, so I expect my students to do the same when they come to my studio. Also, make sure you have any books and music that we will be playing out of. I always have a copy of anything that we are playing, so I expect the student to have a copy as well.

In music theory lessons, we will focus on theory that is relevant to the your musical interests, while simultaneously building a solid foundation in understanding universal music theory concepts.
We will relate these concepts to a variety of genres, whether that may be jazz, classical, pop, rock, or folk through analysis and musical examples.
We will also cover arrangement and composition techniques, harmonic and melodic analysis, ear training, and practical application.
I believe that the most important aspect of teaching music is creating a positive and individualized learning environment while simultaneously teaching the necessary technique and knowledge to play your instrument both successfully and confidently.
Above all, our lessons will focus on reaching your musical potential. Curriculum for our lessons will draw from variety of methods and aspects of music education. These include music theory, ear training, sight-reading, body mapping, technique, improvisation skills, arranging, and composition. I place a great emphasis on learning repertoire from a variety of genres of music.
Students will have the opportunity to share what they learn at spring and winter recitals and to participate in group lessons on a regular basis.
I have 9 years of experience teaching piano, guitar, music th
eory, and ear training to students of all ages, levels, and musical backgrounds, including students with special needs.
I am currently completing my Masters degree at University of California, Irvine. Prior to my graduate studies, I was based in New York City, where I ran a private music studio, performed throughout the city with my jazz quintet, and worked as an accompanist and musical director. I graduated with honors from Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA with degrees in Performance and Audio Engineering.
Feel free to send me a message if you have any questions about lessons or scheduling!
I studied music theory in college. I tutored many students while taking classes myself. I teach my students not only to solve theory problems but to understand the greater concepts of music theory.
I am a professional singer, pianist, songwriter, and recording artist. I graduated from Indiana Wesleyan University with a Bachelors of Music, specifically voice.
Voice students can expect to improve week to week in their vocal technique. Every voice has a unique timbre; I teach students to release built up tension and apply foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual sound. I can help any student to sing with freedom, confidence, and expression.
I teach piano students of all different ages and experience levels. I studied classical piano for 16 years, and contemporary keyboard for 7 of those. I can teach students to read music and pursue classical excellence, to learn how to play contemporary music using chord sheets, or both depending on the goals and preference of the student.
As a professional recording a
rtist I frequently take trips to Nashville for co-writing, recording, and meeting with record labels. I have written with well-known writers like Mia Fieldes from Hillsong, Tony Wood from Provident Label Group, Stu G from Delirious?, and Jon Steingard from Hawk Nelson. I love to mentor students who want to become effective, dynamic songwriters.
My personal passion is contemporary music but I firmly believe that great technique is essential to any and every style. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!

October 1, 2019
We absolutely love Candida. She seems to be able to connect to my 8 years old which I constantly have to push to practice, so and I cannot ask for more honestly. I'm just happy he's so excited to go to the class. Worth every $ and trust me I just moved in NYC and the lessons are double the price than in NJ.
I've been teaching piano for over ten years, and my students have gone on to make piano a life-long hobby, play in recitals and at church, or just enjoy playing for friends and family. My objective as a music educator is to instill in students a lifelong passion for music. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play basic melodies and as time goes on you'll begin to play your favorite tunes comfortably. I love working with students of all ages and levels, and I can't wait to meet you!
A native of Raleigh, North Carolina, Caleb began playing piano at the age of 5. Throughout his childhood he took lessons in piano and voice. Caleb has a Bachelor of Music degree from Bob Jones University, Master of Music degree and Performer's Certificate from USC, where he studied under pianists Marina Lomazov and Joseph Rackers. Caleb's work with children spans far beyond teaching, having worked as a staff collaborative pianist at Interlochen Center for the Arts in Michigan and playing for numerous children's masses and choirs. He recently appeared in performances with The Atlanta Concert Series at National Center for Civil and Human Rights, Agnes Scott College Community Orchestra, Kennesaw State University, City Winery Atlanta, Brevard Music Center, Burgos International Music Festival (Spain), and Wiener Musikseminar (Austria), was nam
ed prizewinner at the 2008 South Carolina Music Teachers National Association Young Artist Competition, and adjudicated for the 2012 Arthur Fraser International Piano Competition Young Jury. While he enjoys the opportunity to perform, Caleb's primary pursuit is teaching, using his professional experience to educate students by exploring the beauty of music. Caleb enjoys concertizing as a soloist and collaborative artist, and has experience preparing students for exams and competitions, including Associate Board of Royal Schools of Music Exam and the National Federation Music Competition.
He was great! My daughter liked the way he guided and she was happy having him as a very good and kindness instructor.
September 25, 2015
Caleb comes highly recommended from the Hannibal Family. My daughters (Sydney and Reagan) took over 2 years of piano lesson under the guidance and supervision of Caleb, through the USC School of Music, and found him to be an excellent choice for them. Not only is Caleb very knowledgeable and devoted to teaching in the area of music, he's also a great motivator and excellent with children because of his patience and passion for the arts.
September 9, 2015
Caleb was a great instructor. My son Tarun started taking Piano lessons when he was 7. Caleb was very patient with my son who can be very difficult to teach. Tarun has had another teacher since then but he still talks about Caleb. I would not hesitate a second if I had to pick Caleb as our Piano instructor if had a chance.
I have about 10 years experience teaching music to people ages 6-adult.
I graduated Berklee College of Music with Honors (cum laude).
I am a receiver of the Outstanding Youth Advocate Award from the President's Office of Education Outreach (Community Affairs and Campus Engagement) at Berklee College of Music at the annual Urban Service Awards in April 2014.
I taught drumming & music theory at Indian Hill Music School in Littleton, MA.
Hi, my name is Josh Weinberg. I have over 10 years experience teaching drums & about 5 years experience teaching music production, & music theory (to all different ages). I have received an award from Berklee College of Music's Community Affairs Dept. for my teaching work in the Boston area (see photo). I graduated Berklee cum laude honors and w/ 2 degrees, Drum Performance & Electronic Production & Design. I teach a wide variety of techniques & cater each lesson plan to each student, to maximize our time together & help make the student the best musician he/she can be! I can travel to you for in-home lessons or you can come to my studio in Newton, which is a nice, isolated space where you won't be distracted by other lessons happening in the adjacent room like in some other studios/schools. In addition to teaching, I frequently performs
with bands around the northeast U.S., & have performed with internationally acclaimed artists such as Nona Hendryx, Simon Shaheen, & Richard Devine. In the past 6 years, I've performed in 8 countries - USA, Canada, Mexico, Guatemala, Colombia, Brazil, Turkey, & Ghana.
My son enjoyed the lesson and wanted to practice right away.
August 29, 2018
Josh is always easy to be around and is able to form any lesson around what I wanted to do, as well as teach me loads of new ideas if I hadn’t planned anything. He has greatly helped improve my own production and give me insight into what professional producers do to set themselves apart. He’s great to work with and always in an uplifting mood.
August 21, 2018
Josh is an awesome teacher. He is patient and supportive and always comes up with ways to connect me to the concept he’s teaching. I asked to learn drums “the right way” so we spend a ton of time on fundamental exercises that i suspect are boring for him but he never shows it. He is always upbeat and positive and I enjoy our lessons a lot. Could not recommend him more highly.
Through the foundation I've gained by the influences of Mel Bay, Hal Leonard, and Suzuki musical instruction methods, I compile my own teaching materials. Using personally constructed guitar lessons, I demonstrate, instruct, and guide the student based on my assessment of their individual needs, skill level, and progress. Lessons are formulated in Modules, and advancement through them is based on the student's personal aptitude, skill level, and practice commitment. Learning is accomplished by ear as well as through essential methods of musical notation (tablature, 5-line staff, rhythmic comprehension). Students are trained to perform written music as well as to write and express the music within themselves. I'm an encouraging and motivating guitar teacher with a casual relaxed approach. Teaching new guitarists is very rewarding to me. To see the light come on and watch a student perform a song, express themselves musically, and create their own composition is an awesome experience.
The key to learning guitar......is finding the right instructor!
I am an encouraging, effective guitar instructor and an experienced performing musician, offering in-person beginner through intermediate guitar instruction in my home and on line.
It is very rewarding to me to help others along the journey of creative expression through music. To see the light come on and watch a student perform a song, express themselves musically, and create their own composition is an awesome experience. To kick back after a long day and let your soul speak through a musical instrument is a wonderful release. Please let me guide you along this incredible adventure to bring out that inner artist!
You'll learn guitar playing posture, strumming patterns and an understanding of rhythm, tuning, chords progressions and chord theory, basic principle
s of reading tablature and 5 line staff, and great popular songs. You'll be playing your favorite tunes in no time!
Through formal and self- instructed lessons from age 12, I've learned country, folk, blues, rock, and metal techniques and formed several local bands as lead vocalist and lead/rhythm guitarist. Writing and recording my own music has been a hobby for over 30 years.
An active music enthusiast from a young age, I began with clarinet technique and music theory from age 9 through public schools, performing in orchestra and marching band.
I'm enjoying my lessons with Scott. He has taught me a lot. He makes playing and learning exciting. I can't wait for my next lesson.
May 12, 2018
I started with Scott as a newbie and he has definitely helped me grow as a guitarist. He takes time and makes things easier to learn. As complicated learning can be, he simplifies it and breaks it down. When I feel like I’m not progressing he always shows me how I am. His modules are easy to follow. His teaching style is compatible with all types of learners whether you are visual, hands on or a listener. It’s not just business with him. He’s always available for questions after or between lessons. He’s knowledgeable in equipment so don’t hesitate to ask for some advice on what to buy. He’s affordable and lesson times are flexible. I highly recommend him for all ages and learning needs.
April 7, 2018
Scott has been a great help to me, filling in the gaps and teaching exactly what I request: techniques, specific songs, and lesson times at work for me. He communicates well and follows up after each lesson with emails.
Ever wanted to understand the inner workings of the music that you love, perform, or revere? Music Theory and Analysis opens windows to a higher level of understanding of music.
Our first lesson will assess where your currently level of musical understanding is and progress from there. Whether you are a music grad looking for a refresher or someone looking at the material for the very first time, through meticulous exploration we will go from scale degrees to counter point and upper structure harmonies.
As a performer, there is no other discipline in music I use more frequently than music theory.

"Shon is an expert at all aspects of teaching music on multiple instruments but is especially gifted at teaching music theory that helped me learn to play
by numbers which helped me change keys on the fly. No more writing out the chords for praise and worship music. So knowledgeable. You need to stop think about it and call him up and schedule your first lesson. Shon rocks!!"
"I am extremely happy with my first five lessons. I feel that my instruction is individualized well to my short term goals, which is to develop a solid
theoretical foundation that enables me to understand compositional approaches and methodologies and prepare me to create my own compositions and arrangements. Currently the format of our lesson is to analyze/discuss a piece in detail with a compositional or arrangement exercise to reinforce the main techniques of the piece. (which is reviewed at the subsequent lesson). The exchange of ideas (as well as the exercises) have resulted in me learning something fun and interesting every single lesson. I highly recommend Jaxon as a music theory instructor."
"He made me feel very comfortable and it was my first lesson, ever."
"I wanted to play piano and Kelly is a great teacher to work with. She's definetly helps understand the basics in piano music theory. I have a better learn
ing in scales, triads & chords, notes, and key signatures. Great Job! Keep up the good work!"
"Michelle is so sweet and knowledgable! She is extremely patient and helpful and makes learning even the most difficult concepts a fun experience."
"Very patient and enthusiastic. Teaches with a lot of heart, would highly recommend her."

"Patrick is great to work with. Very knowledgeable and patient with all levels. I don't have much formal music training and wanted some music theory and co
