Debbie "Debra" T.

Houston, TX

About Debbie (Debra)

Having been a public school teacher, as well as a private and group piano instructor, I've observed how differently students "digest" information, and piano lessons are a great way to make use of different learning styles. I emphasize knowing HOW to practice before you leave so you'll be successful at home, and you are welcome to contact me with problems during the week so you don't lose a week in progressing with your lessons. I've had students send a video of a tricky section to ask for alternative fingering, and photos to clarify how they are reading something!! I also perform with an or
chestra and want to feel proficient among my peers, so I really know how it feels to make a mistake in front of everyone. I am here to help you feel proud of your progress.
My primary teaching objective is to have fun as I assist you on this wonderful journey into music!

*** Lesson Details ***
I truly have fun making and teaching music. We celebrate all successes. Even the overcoming of the smallest "hiccups"!
There are games to make my students secure with the many concepts of music reading. I encourage improvisation and ensemble playing. We can add rhythm tracks to "jazz" up our scales and finger builders. Students can accompany with chords or melodic harmonies. I assign exercises to build finger flexibility, strength, fluidity and independence; Pencil work to master theory and reading skills; Pieces that contain the ideas we are focused upon; and pieces to add to your repertoire.

*** Studio Equipment ***
At my Home Studio,You will be playing on my 5'1" Knabe grand piano! I also have electronic keyboards. On occasion you may find yourself playing on my marimba - a definite pitch percussion instrument - like a giant xylophone. We often rehearse our rhythms on my variety of world drums! There are chairs available for guests.
Also, I share my home with my pet cats - so if you are allergic, I'd be happy to consider coming to your home for your lessons.

*** Travel Equipment ***
An electronic keyboard with full-sized keys or a tuned piano must be available along with a proper height stool, bench or chair. A music stand for the books and good lighting is also needed. The family must agree that the 'lesson space' deserves to be quiet with no distractions. I can also bring one of my keyboards to use for duets, accompanying and improvising. Should there be another student (or potential student) in the home, they can use the extra keyboard with headphones for guided practice and creativity. Percussion students - primarily- mallets, would be better served at my home using my marimba. However, those who have bell kits could be taught in their home, with the possibility of using my marimba as an incentive.

*** Specialties ***
I am fortunate to have an extensive collection of piano method books and solos that I make available as part of my lending library. From it I can reinforce a concept or reward an accomplishment with an "oldie, but goodie" from John Thompson or Schaum, without having to charge the parents for another piece. For my beginning piano students of elementary school age, I have used the Robert Pace, Bastien, Faber & Faber and Schaum series. With adults, I invite them into the decision depending on what their experience is and what they would like to be able to perform one year from now. With transfer students, I have asked them to play their favorites from the lesson books they own, (and I ask them to evaluate their proficiency)- then we discuss where to go from there. Often it is positive to stay at the same level but use different literature so they can become comfortable with my style of explanations and expectations. This encourages a relationship where the student feels like they do know what they were taught and 'cements' those skills as a foundation for our moving forward together. I have a CD player handy for the books that include recorded tracks to go along with a learned piece.

My son is young and new to the piano. Debbie taught in a way that was fun for him and he really enjoyed it. He just had his first lesson and already can't wait until his next one! She is patient and clearly has a lot of experience teaching young children. Thank you!

My daughter has been having lessons with Debbie for over a year now and it is amazing to see how much she has learned. Debbie is great! She is very patient, has a great way of teaching and is so great with my daughter. My daughter loves her and looks forward to piano lessons each week. She always comes up with fun ways of teaching and learning, and my daughter looks forward to what her next surprise is. My daughter had never touched a piano prior to lessons with Debbie, my daughter loves it and practices between classes and always stays interested and motivated. We highly recommend her to anyone and everyone!

Jennifer G.

Spring, TX

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)

Leni B.

Magnolia, TX

About Leni

BA in Music, composition and conducting from Hunter College (City University of New York)
Diploma from the Conservatoire de Fontainebleau, France
Studied with Louise Talma, Jacques Louis Monod, Nadia Boulanger

Lessons are about learning to make music, not endless scales and arpeggios which so often lead to pain and injury. Tone production, sight reading, and age appropriate theory and interpretation are strong elements from the beginning.

An overwhelming percentage of young, enthusiastic and talented children are discouraged early and give up the piano because they do not make rapid p
rogress and therefore do not enjoy their lessons. Music is one of life's great joys. It should be fun. For the intermediate, and even the advanced, student, it is critical that much more attention be paid to the musicality of the playing and the understanding of the music. This leads to more beautiful playing and greater enjoyment.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are designed for the needs of the individual student.

*** Studio Equipment ***

Concentration on interpretation, Theory, Solfege and ear training, and non injurious piano technique.

Leni is an inspiration of how one should approach teaching music. He avoids common issues that discourage others from learning. Leni doesn't drill you through endless exercises, or force you to play pieces such as "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" for months at a time. Rather, he will teach you simpler, but still beautiful, pieces that teach you the fundamentals more effectively than endless drills. I was somewhat nervous because I have arthritis in my hands, but the non-injurious technique that Leni teaches is intended to be as soft on the hands as possible, and not utilize the fingers, which will cause fatigue and injury.

Leni also has a very clear concept of student potential, and will introduce things to you that seem mind-boggling, but by the end of the lesson, you will have accomplished things you couldn't have imagined possible. He does not stick to an ironclad curriculum that he has developed, and will design a plan based on each individual student. His flexibility, faith in his students, realistic approach, and teaching abilities will help you progress rapidly.

I’m a 37 year-old guy and I wasn’t sure it would be possible for me to pick up a new instrument, but Leni’s patience and easy going nature make it easy and fun. He’s such an inspiration.

I feel so privileged to have Leni as my teacher. He isn’t just some young guy fresh out of school who teaches you the basics. Leni is an educated and accomplished musician and his knowledge of music and the history of the classical music you work on is phenomenal. He’s the real deal.

One of the main things Leni focuses on is form. He teaches the Taubman Approach, which is an ergonomic way of using your hands to play. It makes it so much more comfortable to play and sets you up to learn faster and be able to play more difficult pieces as you progress.

Leni also teaches that learning a piece music is more than just learning the notes. He goes into the musicality of it and why the choices the composer made make sense. I also wasn’t really much into classical music, but the music he has me working on is so enjoyable, that practice doesn’t feel like work. It’s so exciting to see what the next piece is he’ll give me to work on.

5 satars all the way.
