About Mikey
Hello new musical friend! My name is Mikey Smith and I'm looking forward to sharing my knowledge and passion for music with you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2003, and have loved helping my students acquire a foundational knowledge of how music works, gain comfort and facility through proper technique on their instrument, and, most importantly, to develop an appreciation and passion for music that will last them their entire lives! I went to the University of Colorado and earned a double major in Piano Performance and Recording Arts in 2017. I'm a very outgoing and friendly person and my teaching style is engaging, personalized, and fun! I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

My 11 year old son has been taking lessons with Mikey for almost 3 years. Mikey's approach is individualized, strength-based, flexible and truly fun! Completely different from the painful lessons I remember from childhood, marked by endless regurgitation of trite ditties, lessons with Mikey are built on a foundation of appreciating and creating beautiful music together, from the very first lesson. My son has some learning differences/challenges (ADHD, dyslexia) but these have never really been an issue during lessons- he and Mikey always work together on navigating what they want to learn, explore and create next.

On our first lessons, a full vocal evaluation will be completed to see what exactly we need to work on developmental wise and customize a long and short term plan for best results.

About Danny
Danny is a recording artist, singer, published songwriter and motivational speaker. Danny has to work in professional acting, singing with various local bands, improvisation live, acapella groups.

Danny has been vocal coaching since 1999 and has learned that the best way to develop a voice is by isolating a vocalists range and working as a team to strengthen what needs developmental work and also reinforcing long term knowledge of longevity.

There is no one size fits all. Each student has a custom plan developed on day one with time lines and short/long term goals. Think of it as personal training, but for the voice. There are areas to think about;

-Blending
-Range
-Control
-Riffs and Runs
-Miliplue registers and how to use each one
-Vocal mixing
-Twang
Each technique can be demonstrated and taught by your instructor in
a gradual progression.

These classes are best recommended for singers who have "real goals in mind". With that said the classes will put you to work as a vocalist and challenge you to work the best parts of your voice, but also parts of your voice that are underdeveloped or need work. If you are the type of singer that says, " I just want to see what happens" but with no real goals. It will be harder for us to work together as our classes need a goal to work towards.

This was a great lesson. He knows his stuff and can really develop a person. I did 20 minute lessons to start, but honestly the more time you can the better. He taught me way more than I expected I could learn, but I could tell there's so much more he can do with more time. My lesson was as long as it took to drive there but it was worth it even for how short it was. I'm doing longer next time for sure.
Danny's really great to work with. He's very skilled and I'm glad he's teaching what he knows because I'm pretty sure he keeps himself busy with a lot of projects. I highly recommend lessons with Danny. It's fun and comfortable because he's a great person and funny and easy to be around even if you haven't taking any lessons on singing.

Danny came to our house and did lessons for my son in our living room. My son used to take group classes with Danny at a Network for Young Artists, a non-profit but since we moved out of that area, we needed more one on one time. My son has improved in confidence, singing has gotten better. He even sang at a family birthday party for his little sister and even did a speech. I would have never imagined that type of confidence.

I've been teaching for over 11+ years. My teaching style is we go at the pace you want to go. I let the student tell me what their goals are, and we work around it.

My philosophy: everyone is their own person. No one is built the same!

About Kate
I graduated from UTSA in the Fall of 2008, with a Bachelor of Music with a Vocal and Piano Emphasis. I have been teaching private piano and voice for 11+ years. I am fun, energetic, and patient. It brings me such joy to be able to teach children something I am so passionate about!

*** Lesson Details ***
Students need to practice 15 minutes a day. They are required to complete everything that is assigned to them that week, and be prepared for their lessons for the following week. A beginner usually in 3-6 months should be familiar with reading the basic treble and bass clef staff, be familiar with dynamic markings, beginning to understand basic music theory, tempo and minimal sight reading. Voice students study basic vocal technique, and learning to sing properly.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I usually provide the books after the paren
ts have paid for them. They should have their own instrument to work with.

*** Specialties ***
I use the Alfred method for piano.

I studied voice with Professor Herald Stark. I have performed in several operas and musicals. I was a member of the San Antonio Mastersingers for five years. In 1992 I performed with the Mastersingers and the American Symphony Orchestra at Carnegie Hall. In the 1980s I led a professional madrigal group called the Silver Swan Singers.

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 Antonio 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 Northe
ast 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.

*** Lesson Details ***
Classical technique is what I teach. Including breathing placement and musicianship. However that does not mean that I try to turn all my students into opera singers. The truth is you can utilize the classical technique in any genre of music. Trust me it will make a difference in your singing. I would be happy to discuss my methods in more detail. Thank you.

Excellent instructor with an emphasis on proper breathing and technique. He is incredibly knowledgeable and conveys tips about vocal placement and breath control in a way that "clicks" with me. I'm an experienced classically trained singer who was looking for a professional to help me refine my instrument and correct some technique issues.

Music is all about feeling. My teaching style is very much based around what makes you comfortable. While I know how important the fundamentals of music are, I also believe that we develop our own style and comfortability as we progress and build our skill. I focus on everything from the ground up. You can never ask too many questions, and I am here to help you find your musical identity! :)

About Layla
"Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy" - Ludwig Van Beethoven.

Hey there! Thanks for stopping by my profile! My name is Layla - like the awesome Eric Clapton song :) I am an aussie residing in the big state of Texas and have been playing and teaching music for 10 years. When I was 12 years old, my parents bought me an electric guitar for my birthday. I learnt to play and I was lucky enough to have a talented brother who was learning the drums, so we were able to play together a lot and learn from each other. Jamming out to Nirvana in our upstairs bedroom was a very frequent occurrence – smells like teen spirit was the first song we learnt. This started the basis of the next 5 years of our musical careers. The first band I was in was called “ The Nobodies”, 3 teenagers playing cover gigs at pubs and clubs, learni
ng the ropes young, and I could never be more thankful for it. This band eventually changed names to “The River City Rumblers” and in the year of 2010 we appeared on national Australian Television on the show “Australia’s Got Talent”. It was really an amazing experience and exposed me to not only a huge audience, but the music industry itself. I continued to pursue my musical passions for years to come, this included teaching. I began teaching guitar to young students (around 8 years and up) with one on one lessons. I taught out of my home in the lounge room at first, then out of a studio that we eventually built. I also had the opportunity to teach young groups in a classroom environment at a local school. I would teach groups of 3-5 kids ranging from ages 6-12, split up into age groups. I moved around Australia a little to tried and break into the music industry, then moved back home, studied, until life brought me my husband and now I am in the USA. Somewhere along the line though, adulthood got in the way. I lost music for a while, and got caught up in the 9-5 jam. I have decided it is time to put my passion first. I absolutely adore teaching. It is so very rewarding to me and I hold it very dear to my heart. Combine it with music, and I am living the dream! I would love the chance to share that with you or whomever you may be reading this for. Thank you so much for your time and I look forward to meeting my future students!
