About Billy
I teach my students how to understand how music is put together so they can learn even more on their own.

I read, write, and play all styles and I focus on teaching the student fundamentals that work in all styles of music ....AND I get them going on the style they are interested in - pop, rock, country, folk, etc.

I have spent my entire life in the music industry and I can show you how to use what I teach to apply to the real world. I have also been a successful songwriter and I can work with students to learn about song structure and song writing.

I am also good at preparing students for college music classes.

*** Lesson Details ***
I like to break it down into small steps and accomplish them, then move on to the next.

Each person learns differently and I am good at connecting with how you learn - then we can use a boo
k or CD or not according to your needs.

I have several books to choose from as well as CDs and other tools. BUT .....some things are learned best through 1 on 1 instruction and explanation without a book.

I like to see progress every week and I usually do.

*** Studio Equipment ***
recording studio w/ seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
Student needs instrument only to start and discuss from there.
I have many tuners, metronomes, props, books, etc

*** Specialties ***
I teach using modern popular songs as vehicles but back up examples with theory and some reading and ear training.
I usually get quick results and my students can understand the music as well as play it.

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, trumpet and piano in the DFW area. I also play trumpet in the both the Frisco Community Band and 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 g
et 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.

About Lisa
I have been a music teacher and private lesson instructor for the past 20 years. I have a bachelor of science degree in Music Education and hold a teaching certificate for all-level Music Education. In my private studio I have taught students from 3-70 and have enjoyed them all! In addition to teaching music I also serve as the Music Minister for my church. Students coming to me can expect a tremendous amount of experience as well as a committed, honest and caring teacher.

*** Lesson Details ***
For beginning piano students at the pre-reading level (ages 3-6ish) I like to use the Faber "My First Piano Adventure" series. I love that this series enforces solid technique in a fun, child-friendly way.

For older beginners and players with some piano I like the Alfred series, supplemented, of course, with songs/styles of music that i
nterest the student.

Guitar: I've found that guitar method books are nearly as diverse as the guitarists that play them! That being said, I typically start with the Essential Elements for guitar for a solid introduction to music reading and a touch of theory.

Depending on the style of play the guitarist is interested in I move on from there. Mel Bays Classical method is always a solid choice as is the Christopher Parkening Guitar method. I also have a few tab oriented books and some rock/blues oriented books.

For clarinet and oboe students I like to compliment what their band/orchestra director is using when possible. I also love the Klose method for clarinet. The Rubank is also a tried and true book I use. I've had a lot of success with these books.

Of course the best method books are for naught without adequate practice time! When theory and technique work get too dry it's always fun to throw in some fun selections to compliment the "work."

Voice students are a bit different in that I don't use a specific method to instruct. I have many books that I draw from when teaching voice due to the unique nature of the individual. Depending on the style of music, from classical to jazz/pop, I have music that will teach proper breath support, vowel placement and tone.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Home studio: converted dining room with 3 guitars, young percussion instruments, upright piano and f/w keyboard. Seating available for parents.
Music ministry at First Christian Church in Terrell. Access to choir room with upright piano. Seating available for parents.

*** Specialties ***
Degree in all-level music education with specialty in voice.

About Maureen
Maureen has been teaching private voice and piano lessons since 2009, and currently runs her own studio, as well as traveling to students' homes to teach lessons. She teaches anyone with an interest and willingness to learn, regardless of experience level.

Maureen received her Master of Music from the University of Maryland 2017 with an emphasis in Opera Performance. Her teaching style is tailored for each individual student, in that what works for one student won't necessarily work for the next (particularly in regards to singers), and strives towards finding the optimal method that encourages and helps students to improve. She firmly believes that anyone who is willing to dedicate the time and effort to learning a new instrument is capable of doing so, and looks forward to helping new students achieve their goals.

Hello!

I am a patient, supportive and encouraging teacher and I would love to hear you play! I love teaching music and watching my students blossom into these amazing musicians.

I have played flute since middle school and continued all the way up to high school. In high school I joined band, where I started playing piccolo. I was lucky to have been taught by some inspiring teachers who encouraged me to go back to school to complete my undergraduate at Texas State University in Music Education. I have taught elementary music grades PK-6th grade for 6 years now. I have enjoyed watching my students grow and hope to enrich your life with music soon!

About Erskine
I am a professional touring musician and I have passion for teaching others. I have a jazz piano degree from the University of North Texas and have been blessed to travel the world with several artists in various genres of music (Eminem, Rihanna, David Foster, Babyface, Jessie J, Leon Bridges, Zendaya, Eric Benet, Tamela Mann, Chrisette Michele, and many others).
To build a solid foundation for learning piano, I like to incorporate a little bit of music theory into each lesson.
In the most humble way, I can assure you that there is no other piano teacher on Take Lessons who has the diversity, experience, and teaching style that I possess.
I design all of my lessons to fit the passion and personality of each individual student, and together we identify your goals and develop a plan that will help you achieve them.

I’m truly lookin
g forward to working with you.

Erskine of Key Element is a very skilled, professional, and friendly music teacher. He provided lessons for both my young daughter and myself. As a beginner to music, he was very patient with my daughter. Me, being a piano player by ear, Erskine provided me with exercises, tools, and even recommended an app to help with learning music theory and reading scales. Again, I HIGHLY recommend Key Element if you are looking for quality services. He is one of the best.

About Joshua
My name is Joshua Ballard. I’m currently making online music courses from home for a company called Lernsys. I have a B.A. in Music Education with Highest Honors. I've been teaching for 10 years. I've directed, taught, and sang for multiple churches. I worked as an Assistant Choir Director at Tascosa High School for 3 years before I have the job I do now.
I'm looking for private piano and voice students any age. I prefer to teach at my home, but I'm open to coming to you. Please contact me if you’re interested!
My Personal Bio:
My beautiful wife tells me that she loves my passion for people. I live my life striving to make everyone I meet better for having met me. I teach music because caring about the people in the world means communicating effectively with everyone. To do that we need a Universal language, and music fills that role. I
believe that in order to make the world a better place we need to be in touch with other people in profound, creative ways. Working as an online teacher has provided me that chance. Through them I can fulfill my philosophy by reaching hundreds or thousands of people across the world.
I consider it a privilege and an honor to work for my students. My experience teaching has proven that this vocation comes with heavy responsibilities, therefore I take my job very seriously. I'm extremely motivated to producing high quality courses. I teach music in a way that's comprehensive, interesting, and rewarding. We can't ignore that Science has proven that the nature of music instills deep-seated, virtuous core values like self-discipline and a high self-esteem. Music will also improve a student's performance in other subjects, especially in mathematics and reading.
Music is a lifelong skill that should be accessible to everyone. My calling is to give my all to make it so. If you feel a calling to become a professional musician, don't feel discouraged from it! In today's world you can find a fulfilling, lifelong career in music. I hope you will entrust me to teaching you music, and I promise, if you do, you will not regret it!
