Vandell A.

Coppell, TX

Students will learn all of the basics to playing the piano, as well as music theory. We will learn music and even compose our own songs!

About Vandell

Hailing from the "Birthplace of Jazz", Vandell's path to greatness and his purpose in music would not be too hard to find. While studying music at the age of 13 at a local jazz summer camp in the Treme' area of New Orleans, it was there that he learned to play the trumpet. After an entire summer of playing the trumpet at the camp, he was approached by one of his teachers that challenged him by stating his embouchure would work better with the saxophone. Being that this influential teacher was the coolest saxophonist in the world in the eyes of this young, budding jazz musician, Vandell took th
is challenge as a compliment that his teacher would even consider training him on his new instrument. 

Soon after cultivating his craft on the alto saxophone, he joined the world renowned St. Augustine "Marching 100" Marching Band. This experience afforded Vandell the opportunities of performing in events and parades all over the world as a member of the prestigious marching band, which would ultimately convince him that performing and playing music was what he wanted to do for a living after graduating from high school.   

Shortly after graduation, he enrolled in classes at Southern University at New Orleans, and studied with the legendary Edward "Kidd" Jordan. After a month of studying with Kidd, the catastrophic devastation of hurricane Katrina took the city of New Orleans by storm. At the age of 18, and after enduring the life-altering changes brought on by Katrina, Vandell realized that he wanted to seriously pursue a career in music and began to write original compositions. In just a few short years, this decision has led to him sharing the stage with a vast array of artists, from multiple genres of music, and at venues across United States and Europe. He has also opened and shared the stage with several internationally acclaimed artists and musicians, including Grammy award winning jazz saxophonist Kirk Whalum and the legendary smooth jazz saxophonist Tom Braxton.

In June of 2011, Vandell released his debut album entitled "Years Later”. This album is a collection of original musical compositions that has been written since he relocated to Texas following the aftermath of hurricane Katrina in his hometown of New Orleans. The "Years Later" album, to date, has been getting rave reviews from smooth jazz fans, music lovers and critics across the world. With the success of "Years Later" Vandell decided to release an uptempo 5 song EP called "Turn It Up". Since it's release, the leading single "Let's Ride" has reached #1 on the Billboard Charts!

Yana Giles has been the best piano teacher I have ever taken lessons from out of all 5 teachers I've had. She is patient, encouraging and motivational through every piece she assigns me. My appreciation for music grew an enormous amount after beginning lessons with her. My hand technique improved, as well as performance ability. I recommend her to anyone looking to learn the piano! Even if you have already learned the piano and wish to improve somehow, Yana will show you a new understanding of music that you never thought you could have.

Jordan D.

Grapevine, TX

I have played piano for rock bands and worship ensembles for several years. I was also required to take 4 semesters of Functional Piano in college and prove myself a proficient pianist to graduate. I also use piano on a daily basis for arranging, composing, and teaching.

About Jordan

13 years ago, I picked up a guitar and began my life-long pursuit of music. This pursuit has led me in a wide variety of directions. Today, I am the worship leader for Living Life Church, an on-staff music-producer and session musician at Drive35 Productions, and a passionate instructor.

I have a passion for a wide variety of styles of music. For several years, I was the lead guitarist, singer, and songwriter for multiple independent rock bands, the most notable being an indie psychedelic band called Tod The Fox. I have led worship for many churches including Grace Fellowship UMC, Brazos
Pointe Church, The Cornerstone College Ministry at UTA, and FUMC Allen in varying capacities. At UTA, I studied Jazz and Classical guitar under acclaimed guitarists Sam Walker and Billy Robertson. Here, I also studied theory, piano, sight-singing, and music-production extensively. I graduated Magna Cume Laude with a Bachelor of Music-Media from UTA. After school, I spent 9 months interning/assistant engineering with acclaimed musician/composer/producer Brad Nyght at The Bakery Studio in Dallas- whose credits include being the drummer for The Michael Gungor Band and Desperation Band. Then, got hired as an on-staff session musician and music producer at Drive35 Productions. I have also played guitar, mandolin, and bass for multiple pit orchestras and guitar for the North Lake Jazz Ensemble with director Jim Eger.

My teaching style varies from student to student. Music is a wonderfully diverse subject and every student has his own aspirations. I will do my best to cater each lesson to the student's goals and interests. Whether that is classical guitar method, rock, jazz, folk, country, pop or anything in between.

I have an excellent internet connection and microphone set up for online lessons. I also utilize screen-sharing to make the lessons as close to real life as possible.

A few of my favorite artists include: Michael Gungor, Joe Pass, Andrew Bird, Chopin, Led Zeppelin, Glen Hansard, and Radiohead.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons will vary significantly from student to student. Not only does every student have different goals in mind, they all learn differently as well. I do my best to customize my lessons for each student's goals and needs. A typical guitar, bass, ukulele, or piano lesson may involve music-reading, chord studies, technical work, scale practice, theory, and of course learning awesome songs!

I consider myself a healthy balance between professional and light-hearted. As much as I want to make efficient use of the lesson-time, my primary goal is for the student to truly understand and enjoy music.

I have worked hard to be a flexible musician and teacher. I am competent in jazz, rock, classical, contemporary, blues, worship, country, and beyond and will be happy to teach any (or all) of these styles to any student.

*** Studio Equipment ***
My at-home studio includes:

- Chairs
- An 88-key Casio Privia keyboard
- Professional grade recording equipment (003r interface, behringer ada8000 with BLA mod, RNC by FMR, and more)
- High speed Internet access
- A printer
- A library of music resources
- Novation Launchkey MIDI controller
- Rode K2 condensor microphone
- Sm57
- Several Naiant stereo pair microphones
- 2 acoustic guitars (Cort and Zaeger), 2 electric guitars (Epiphone CS Custom, Fender Nashville Tele)
- An electric bass guitar (Epiphone Thunderbird with Bartolini Pickups)
- Lanakai Ukulele
- A Savannah Mandolin
- Double input amplifier (vox AC15C1)
- Music stand
- Metronomes/tuners
- Recording studio quality monitors (Yamaha HS8s)
- Large pedal board and pedal chain

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in contemporary, rock, blues, and worship guitar. I am also an experienced pit orchestra musician and jazz guitarist.

For piano, I teach beginner to intermediate level students in a variety of genres. I use piano on a daily basis for composing, arranging, and performing.

For bass, I can also teach a variety of genres. I specialize in blues/rock/contemporary but have experience in classical and jazz bass as well.

For ukulele, I specialize in pop music adaptation and classical.

For mandolin, I teach basic beginner music skills- reading and strumming techniques.

If you do not inform me at least 24 hours (preferably a couple days) prior to your lesson that you are going to cancel, you will still be charged. No matter the situation I will be happy to work with you to schedule a make-up though.

I met Jordan while he worked at a local cafe and he was always very kind to me and my 2 sons as they were growing up from a very young age. During one of our many conversations, Jordan mentioned he was a music instructor. He is not the only person in the cafe who played instruments but Jordan's guidance related to music was always VERY genuine. You could easily tell he knew what he was talking about while others just gave answers on a whim.
Both of my kids showed some interest in guitar and we began lessons with Jordan a few months ago. I could not be happier. I have also joined in and we quickly learned how to play songs. His lessons are great and it is amazing how he keeps my 8 and 10 year old so focused. I have been learning too. I would give more stars if I could. Jordan is a very talented musician, a great person and an excellent educator. I would highly recommend him to anyone wanting to seriously learn guitar.

Marilyn J.

Fort Worth, TX

I teach classical piano. I include theory and ear training with piano lessons. I use some music games and play activity for young students. I have some materials that I provide but books are purchased by the parents.

About Marilyn

Music is soothing to the soul. It can calm us when anxious. It can teach young children focus, concentration and improve fine motor skills. I feel classical piano is a basic foundation to learn many instruments and types of music. I include theory and ear training with piano lessons. My goal is to try and turn on the student's love for music so that he or she wants to spend time at the piano at home improving skills.

Beth B.

Colleyville, TX

I use a variety of books for each of my students customized to their experience and goals. From theory, scales, and technique, to sight-reading and various repertoire, I ensure a well-rounded foundation for their musicianship.

About Beth

In May 2011, I graduated from Texas Woman's University with my Bachelor's Degree in Music and a minor in Business Management. Music has been my passion since before I started taking piano lessons in third grade and there was an innate desire to master the keys. At age fifteen, I taught myself how to play guitar and started writing songs. In 2013, I became a published songwriter when my songs were produced on my church's Christmas Album ("Who Is This King?").

I have been teaching private piano lessons part-time from my home in Colleyville for four years. My students range from young beginner
s to intermediate and advanced students, to beginner and moderate adults. Teaching is my greatest passion, whether it's of the classical genre, theory mastery, or equipping a student to use their gifts in worship. 

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions and I will be happy to discuss. I believe with you that you'll find just the right instructor to impart to your family!
