Priscilla M.

Mesquite, TX

About Priscilla

I love people of all ages. And I love helping them discover what beautiful things they can create in the world of music! Music is such a powerful way to express ourselves, and I love helping others learn how to do this and really enjoy it.

I have played piano since I was three. When I was able to read at age four, I began lessons, and the rest is history. I graduated from Wheaton College Conservatory of Music with a degree in Piano Performance and completed a Master's degree in Piano Performance at the University of Redlands. I love to perform, have written several songs, produced th
ree CD's all with original music that I perform, and have just completed a fourth CD featuring major classical piano works arranged with favorite hymns. I have also written a musical and am in the process of having it produced.

I have sung in choirs of all types and accompanied them on the piano as well for many years. I have worked extensively in Musical Theater, serving both as Musical Director and Accompanist for shows such as Sound of Music, Annie, and many others.

I love seeing people get touched with music and love to help others create and perform music that really speaks to the heart. It's my passion. I teach all styles of music, and love teaching children, adults, and everything in between!

My goal for the students is for them to feel good about themselves as musicians and to be able to express themselves and reach the highest level of performance possible for them.
The students have the opportunity to perform regularly in recitals as well as other venues, and we have a lot of fun! Lessons are a great experience for us all.

*** Lesson Details ***
I use a standard curriculum for students that teaches the basic concepts of music and gives them creative pieces to use in the process. I expect my students to practice, and reward and encourage them to do so. I believe that positive affirmation is the best teaching tool, so I use that as my main basis for teaching, along with discipline and being challenged appropriately. I love helping people create, so my main goal for a piece is to help the student learn to perform it in the best way possible, with plenty of technique and lots of expression, to really make it their own so they and the audience can really enjoy it.

My students are usually ready to perform at least two or three major pieces of their level at the end of six months. I give them material to challenge them and encourage them to progress. Not too much, not too little! I teach self-confidence as one the biggest tools they can use to help themselves improve.

Come join us in our studio! We have a great time together discovering what we can create in the world of music.

I teach in my own private studio with an upright Weber piano excellent for teaching beginning to advanced piano skills and spacious room for voice lessons.

Great first impression! A teacher that cares enough to make sure the student understands the concepts, will enjoy piano & wants a three prong system to success that includes parent, teacher & student.

Laura R.

Waxahachie, TX

About Laura

Elem Music Teacher with a BA from Texas Tech. I have taught piano lessons since 1991.
I have played piano and trumpet most of my life. Once I learned how to play chords on the piano from learning music theory I am enabled to be a songwriter. What an adventure I have had in writing songs. I have written over 700 songs. You can find me on YouTube, check it out!

When you take lessons from me we use a book and go from there.
If you practice you advance if you don't then lessons become a drag for both involved, and your pocket book becomes robbed.

Why not take lessons today, it
's never too late to start. Don't say, I wish I knew how? Step out and lets learn and grow together. They say I have patience as Job. Let's Go!

Colton K.

Dallas, TX

About Colton

Colton is a Certified
Music Teacher.

Want to learn piano but not sure where you want to start? Want to learn not just beautiful classics but rockin' blues riffs and jazz improvisation as well? I've played piano for over twenty years now in almost every setting imaginable: classical concerts, jam bands, vocal accompaniment.

Or perhaps you'd like to learn low brass? Maybe you want to rip out some licks on a tuba, trombone, or euphonium? I started with euphonium in 6th grade fifteen years ago and have since played low brass in both classical ensembles and a gigging New Orleans brass ban
d, and I can certainly develop these skill sets for you as well.

Maybe you want to delve into the electronic world of sound recording, session engineering, and music post-production. Using Pro Tools, Logic Pro X and Ableton live, I can teach you mixing, correct recording techniques for any instrument, and general mastering. This is a particular favorite of mine!

On top of any or all of these things, I'll teach you excellent music theory in order to put the whole sandwich together!

I can teach you everything you need to start out or develop as an awesome musician who will be able to perform in front of any crowd (or just for themselves), and I look forward to the adventures we'll have.

*** Lesson Details ***
I would say a student starting with me can expect a mixture of somewhat-strict, high expectations while at the same time making time for goofiness and fun (fun is what music is all about) We will go places with your music you didn't know existed, and you'll be blown away after merely a few lessons with how far you've already progressed!

After 3 to 6 months with me as a beginner, you will have a solid understanding of the rudiments of your instrument (piano, tuba, etc.) as well as a grip on the beginnings of music theory, and various other things you may want to focus on.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music studio with piano/keyboards, guitars, and seating for parents. Brass lessons will take place in the parlor, with more room and a higher ceiling for the sounds to reverberate more clearly.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide my instrument, curriculum, metronome and tuner, and extra staff paper and writing utensils for notes. Student will provide their instrument and any assigned curriculum.

*** Specialties ***
Jazz, Improvisation, Electronic music, Sound engineering and recording. Rare brass techniques-- extreme pedal tones, high ranges, multiphonics, etc.

Professional, fun, well-worth-it

Colton has provided excellent Tuba lessons for my 6th grader playing music for the first time. He is responsive to student needs and moves at a just right pace. He is friendly and fun. He addresses what my son is needing to practice for school and then takes it to the next level. He covers not only the skills for playing the tuba but also etiquette of instrument care, being in an ensemble, and music theory. He's easy to schedule with. Highly recommended.

Expect great things with Colton

Colton is passionate about music and you can see that right away after 5 minutes of talking to him. He is incredibly talented and my emotions during the lesson range from intimidation, respect, to excitement and motivation. Colton should be found teaching at a university sharing coffee with tweed covered professors leading hoards of students to musical enlightenment. His excitement for music is contagious and I leave the lesson feeling recharged for my practices and ready to take on new projects. He has a way of demanding the best of you and having a good time altogether without you even noticing.

An excellent teacher who loves to see his students excel

Several years ago I was privileged to have Ric contribute his talent to my CD project. He is an amazing musician and a gentleman!

Ric is an excellent teacher and musician who genuinely desires to impart his expertise to those he teaches. He is relevant and experienced. His vast musical knowledge and sphere of influence are a tremendous asset to the music community with years of experience and a sincere attitude that is infectious.

I am highly confident that all Ric's student will be treated with great care and service and I highly recommend and appreciate Ric.

Brennan M.

Midlothian, TX

About Brennan

Hello! My name is Brennan M. and I am 19 years old. I've been playing guitar as well as taking lessons since I was about 7 years old. I have been in a handful of bands, but prefer a more individual approach at music. I love playing blues, classical, rock, indie, folk, and jazz. I can teach you all of the basics and so much more. I am looking for people who are willing to be committed to learning how to play the guitar. I want to see you grow as I grow more by teaching you! When it comes to teaching, I don't play by the rules. I wont set each and every person up with the same thing or the same
books to learn etc, I customize my way of teaching to each individual learner. What you want to get out of learning how to play guitar, I plan on helping you achieve. Be that international fame in 10 years, or just learning how to serenade your girlfriend over dinner by next Saturday. I will always do my absolute and very best to put you on the path to what you want to achieve by learning.
