Jennifer J.

Frisco, TX

About Jennifer

Hi! My name is Jennifer J. I graduated with my Masters in Music from the University of Redlands. I received my Bachelor's Degree from the University of Louisiana at Monroe. Through my college career, I was able to perform in many musical productions. Some of these roles include: Yvonne in Miss Saigon (Louisiana Lyric Opera), Mother in Hansel and Gretel (University of Louisiana at Monroe), Erma in Anything Goes (University of Louisiana at Monroe), Euridice in Orfeo ed Euridice (University of Redlands), and Suor Angelica in Suor Angelica (University of Redlands). There are many performance comin
g up this year, also!

During my time in Undergrad, I had the opportunities to study abroad for two summers. I was accepted into University of Miami's Salzburg program (2009), and the following summer did Westminster Choir College's Florence Voice Seminar (2010). Throughout both of these experiences, I was able to work with world renowned teachers and coaches. These programs helped me grow as a teacher and a performer.

I am a member of NATS (National Association of Teachers of Singing), Texoma Region.

With the experience I have, I hope to start teaching you someday!

*** Lesson Details ***
I like to have fun in lessons, but also get things done and help my students grow. I do require my students to record every lesson, therefore helping them practice during the week. All in all, I want you all to feel comfortable in your learning environment, and have fun learning!

For voice, I teach multiple breathing exercises and techniques. Also, I will organize the individuals warm-ups according to the songs we are working on and voice type.

With piano, I use the Alfred book series. I learned piano using this series and I absolutely love the visuals and techniques. It makes it easy for parents to help with their kids.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Studio with Yamaha upright piano. Lots of stickers and fun stuff for young students. Parents are welcome to sit in the room or are welcome to sit in the living room during the lesson.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide the books, piano students need to pay $8 a book.

*** Specialties ***
In voice, I work the Alexander technique methods. I believe in releasing bad tension and freeing the voice.

In piano, I start with the Alfred Series. Once the student is in level 1B, I incorporate the use of a theory book. The understanding of theory is key in music!

Jennifer is an excellent teacher. Her attention to detail and technique cannot be matched. She has the ability to pinpoint exactly what needs improvement, and she is able to re-train the bad habits you have. I've seen a huge improvement in my voice in just one year. Now, I'm singing with a larger range with a much more healthy sound. This is important because I want my voice to last. I highly recommend Jennifer.

My son always leaves with a smile

My son has a lot of confidence issues, but taking the lessons with Aaron has opened a whole new world of opportunity for him, and he always leaves his sessions encouraged with a smile. It's also great that he can play piano now beyond his own expectations. He is learning proper technique and theory as well.

Marilyn S.

The Colony, TX

About Marilyn

Music Job History:
Was Elementary Principal, Owen Elementary, Lewisville ISD
My music teaching/playing background also includes: private piano instructor at home studio, elementary music teacher in Lewisville ISD and Odessa Public Schools, piano accompanist for middle school/high school band Solo Contests, former church accompanist for Methodist churches
Personal Information:
Have 3 children, now ages 23, 24, and 27
Love gardening, reading, playing piano, ringing handbells.

I believe performing is an important part of music learning, so I schedule at least 2 recitals each year.
Some of my adults prefer not to perform and that is okay too. My students played a Christmas recital recently and played so wonderfully! The more you perform, the easier it gets!

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe that most people would say that they wish they could play the piano. Taking piano lessons keeps you practicing and working on improving your skills. I can always help a student to play better in some aspect of their playing. I break down skills into as small a step as needed so the student can understand what needs to be done. Reading music is similar to reading words, so sometimes the problem is not with the fingers being able to play, but what the student is seeing. I can take whatever series you are currently playing out of and move forward with you from that series.
Rhythm can often be a problem when playing and that usually is just a matter of getting that rhythm into your vocabulary and really hearing how it goes.
Fingering is another area that can be the reason that a passage is not working for you and I can help you figure those areas out. I always try to correct and help you improve by using humor and positive reinforcement. I have several books that work on technique in fun, short exercises that will apply to any songs or literature that you are working on.
We will spend some of every lesson sight reading (looking at music that you will practice at home). Improving your ability to read music at sight will make your piano playing more enjoyable for you.

As with any lessons, the more you practice, the more progress and fun you will have! Every student needs a spiral notebook that we will use to keep track of your lessons. I have found it best if I buy the books you need and then you pay me for the books - that keeps you from having to search at a music store for the correct books and I make sure you have the correct book/levels. If you prefer to find the books yourself, that will be fine also. I am flexible and want your piano playing years to be lifelong for you.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Yamaha Grand Piano, Baldwin Acrosonic Studio Piano, Suzuki 88 key electronic keyboard,

*** Specialties ***
*Teachers
marked as a Student Favorite have taught a minimum of 25 lessons and
have received the highest feedback rating from students.
Piano, Handbells, Music Theory, Sight reading
I can teach from any series, have tended to specialize more with beginning and intermediate students. I have taught from almost every series over the years.
Right now I have students in Faber & Faber, Bastien, John Thompson, Schaum, David Carr Glover, Hal Leonard, FJH, Dozen a Day, and Alfred series.
When students begin lessons with me and have a music series with which they have started, we can stay with that series. I think that breaking skills down into small steps works well for mastery and understanding. I also travel to people's home for lessons, but prefer students come to my house.
I like to expand my students' appreciation of different types of music, from classical to pop, looking for music that is at the student's playing level.

Merilyn is fantastic!

I am an adult student of Marilyn's and played the piano for 10 years growing up. I came to Marilyn wanting to start playing again after not playing at all for 7 years. My experience has been wonderful and I am surprised at how quickly I'm picking it up again. This is mostly due to Marilyn's positive feedback and constructive instruction. She is laid back and easy to work with and my experience playing as an adult is much more enjoyable than when I was younger.

Tammye D.

The Colony, TX

About Tammye

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, french horn, trumpet and piano in the DFW area. I also play percussion and trumpet in the Frisco Community Band and trumpet with 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 get 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.

Sarah loves piano lessons with Tammye because she is calm, funny and very "laid-back" in how she approaches children and teaching the piano. These qualities are gradually drawing Sarah back to an instrument that she loved initially but had withdrawn from due to very strict and almost frightening former teachers. I am so happy to see her loving the piano again and looking forward to her practices with Tammye. Thank you, Tammye, for encouraging and realizing that learning an instrument is a marathon for some and not a sprint!
