Tim K.

Schertz, TX

I have taught beginning piano to students ranging from five to 80 years old. For my younger students I use the Faber Piano Adventures series. For my adult pupils I use the Alfred Adult Beginner course.

About Tim (William)

My name is Tim and I live in Schertz, Texas. I hold a BM and a BME from UTSA and an MM from Texas State. I also studied drama for 3 years at Trinity University. I have been a music teacher for 26 years. I have taught elementary music, secondary choir and college level music courses. I have performed in operas, musicals and plays in San Antonio and I have sung at Carnegie Hall in New York. I studied voice with Herald Stark and guitar with David Underwood. I have led a professional singing group and a professional dance troupe. I have composed choral music which has been performed in San Anton
io and entered into international competitions. I have spent years learning techniques to help students sing in tune and learn how to read music. I have experience teaching students of all ages from 3 year olds to adults. I teach students from Northeast San Antonio, Selma, Schertz, Live Oak, Universal City, Cibolo, Bracken, Garden Ridge, Converse, Marion, Seguin and New Braunfels.

*** Lesson Details ***
For my younger guitar students, I use the Progressive Guitar Method for Young Beginners series. This book includes a CD to help the student practice at home. For my older guitar students I use a progressive guitar curriculum of my own creation.

For my voice students I use Pathways of Song, Hall Johnson Spirituals, 24 Italian Songs and Arias, Alfred's Folk Songs for Solo Singers, Carl Fisher's The Young Singer series as well as song materials based upon the student's personal interests, such as arts songs and Broadway show tunes.

For my piano students I use the Piano Adventures series by Nancy and Randall Faber and the Alfred Piano Series. Music reading, ear training and theory is part of my instruction. With daily practice you will see a noticeable improvement in musicianship, aural skills and music-reading ability.

I am also an experienced tutor. I have worked with students of all ages and with various learning differences. I have tutored students in reading, writing, math, social studies, ESL and test preparation.

Through online instruction, I am available around the clock and around the globe for tutoring and music lessons.

Tim is a wonderful teacher! I've taken voice lessons before and had been in choirs growing up, but I recently decided to get back into singing as an adult. He has helped me to continue to learn proper vocal technique and we've worked on beautiful, challenging songs. Tim has shown me how to finally overcome my horrible "solo nerves" with different exercises - something I thought was impossible! I would recommend him to any singer - beginning or experienced.

Students take weekly lessons. Each lesson involves music theory, technique exercises, and a new song or songs to practice every week. In addition,students are encouraged to improvise and often are challenged to improvise or. Relate their own compositions and or arrangements. Classical music is encouraged to provide a solid foundation to build on . All genres are taught as well. I use several apps/ midi to improve sight reading skills as well

Miriam L.

San Antonio, TX

I can teach from beginner levels to late intermediate and help in preparation for early advanced levels.

About Miriam

My name is Miriam and I've been teaching piano since 2003 to young students starting from age 4 to teenagers.

I began studying music in the 6th grade playing clarinet in the band until I entered college at Texas A&M International University, where I studied for a Bachelor's Degree in Music with a minor in Studio Art. I am classified a senior and I plan to complete my Bachelor's Degree as soon as I am able to resume my education.

Piano has always been a passion of mine. I would teach myself to play popular classics until I was able to take private piano lessons with Dr. Fritz Gechte
r at Texas A&M International University. Since then, I have taught at several music studios and privately at students' homes.

I am always eager to share my experience and knowledge in music with children or young students who are looking to learn and have fun.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a friendly and very patient instructor. I like using Alfred's Basic Piano Library books for students at the beginner level.

For those at the intermediate level, I use Hanon's "The Virtuoso Pianist in 60 Exercises" and assign pieces from classical composers to modern artists, depending on the style of music the student is looking to learn.

By 3-6 months, I expect my students to know basic piano techniques, including fingerings, music notes, rhythms, and major scales apart from assigned musical repertoire.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The lessons are taught in a studio room inside the instructor's apartment on a full-size digital piano and seating is available.

*** Specialties ***
Classical, contemporary - anything the student is yearning to learn.

Excellent instuctor to work with.

Taking piano lessons with Miriam was great. She has patience, and she's very professional. She was flexible with my schedule, especially since I was in school. She's dedicated in teaching the piano, and makes it easy for you to learn. What I liked is that, if you don't understand something, she will find a way for you to understand it. I recommend anybody to take lessons with her.

Michael K.

San Antonio, TX

Piano is a great instrument to start learning the musical language on! Great for anyone at any point in their life. I can help find repertoire for a student any skill level- Old Mac Donald to Op.33 in G minor by Rachmaninov.

If you're child is 5 years old and you think they would enjoy piano, send 'em over!

If you are 80 and have been wanting to play the piano... come on over!

If you've been playing for several years and just want someone to help develop your skills, let's do it!

And of course... if you're into jazz, let's swing.

About Michael

Hello! I'm Michael. Music has been 'my thing' since I found a guitar in my Mom's closet at age 9 and didn't move until figured out "Mary Had A Little Lamb". That's the curiosity I try to instill in my students! Although I started playing trumpet and guitar in elementary school, my music education at University of Texas in SA opened up musical doors I never knew existed! Currently I teach trumpet, guitar, piano, drums and saxophone, ages 6 to 45, as well as play trumpet around town when the sun goes down. I passionately emphasize music reading ability, improv techniques through jazz studies, an
d a solid music theory foundation- no matter what age you are!!!

LESSONS DETAILS
Every lesson, concepts are reviewed and emphasized, then we crawl forward through new music, discussing the technique and theory of every piece we play. I've accumulated an expansive library of teaching material to create a very diverse path when exploring the wonderful world of music. I always try to include a classical piece and a jazz piece in the repertoire. Popular music and original compositions are fun encouraged too!
Whatever your idea of music is, we will build on it, playing pieces you want to play!

THE INSTRUMENTS
A variety of instruments are at our disposal here in the studio, including...

Piano & electric keyboard, acoustic and electric guitars, trumpet & cornet, clarinet, flute, upright acoustic bass, 7-piece drum set & auxiliary percussion.

THE HOUSE
The house is very friendly and comfortable, great with children and families. Lots of natural light! There's a large front porch patio to relax on while you wait with a good book, or you can hang out inside with the siblings watching something on Netflix. I'll even give you the Wifi password ;)

My daughter (11) has really enjoyed her guitar lessons with Michael! She likes that he is patient, encouraging, and fun. He has helped her improve songs that she had previously learned on her own, giving her guidance and techniques that make them so much better. We happily recommend Michael.

Emily is one in a million. After losing her as a teacher I found it impossible to entirely replace her. She cares about her students and will do whatever it takes to help them understand what she is teaching. She understands the teaching process and the students really loved her.
