*** Lesson Details ***
I am pretty easy going. I want you to feel comfortable and at ease, but we do need to focus and can have fun doing it. :)
I utilize various methods for each instrument, which is determined by the students learning style and ability; needs, so this can change as time goes on (not sticking to one particular publishers materials). I have done (and continue to do) extensive research into materials available for each instrument I teach, and supplement with my own, to utilize the best out there for "YOU" for the best possible progress. While ensuring an extremely well-rounded musical education, so you can progress at the best possible rate. Since each student's potential is different, each will progress differently. This is also determined by your dedication to daily practice (the more you practice, the quicker you will progress & the more accomplished you will become). This is a 'Team Effort'; I give the guidance and tools. You practice, utilize learn these tools, and off we go! The sky is the limit!

*** Specialties ***
Classical, jazz

About Michael
First off, welcome to my page. If you've made it this far you're headed in the right direction. To begin with, let me tell you a bit about myself. I am a 26 year-old law graduate. Don't let the legal
education fool you though, I tend to dabble in a little bit of everything. Before I decided to study law I was a collegiate football player at Texas Tech University and was part of the most successful team in the school's history. I gained both my undergraduate and law degree while at Texas Tech and have continued to engage in self-education as well as educating others. I would love to get to know a bit about you and answer any of your questions about my experiences both academically or athletically. I intend to make each tutoring session fun and will sculpt them to fit your needs and learning style. Hope to hear from you soon!

My experience with Michael has been fantastic. I needed his help to sharpen my interview skills and he was just what the doctor ordered. He does a thorough homework, has very keen observation and provides some useful tips. Highly recommend him.

About Macoy
My name is Macoy, and I've been practicing Parkour for around 3-4 years. I currently Coach Parkour and Freerunning at Iron Sports, here in Houston. My goal is to spread movement and give a comfortable
, inviting, and judgement free learning environment for all my students. My teaching style is very personalized, even when teaching in groups. I like to brake techniques down into parts, so they're easily grasped, and bring everything together at the end. That way, the student has a better overall understanding of whatever is being taught, whether it be a simple vault, or a double sideflip. I look forward to helping you develop your movement and meeting all your goals!
