Performance:
As a professional performing artist I help intermediate students adapt songs for performance and explore performance from a background in acting. From the moment you walk on stage the performance has begun. We discuss how to introduce a song, talk on the mic between songs, and how to deliver an energetic engaging performance.

Songwriting/Recording:
I work directly with students wanting to compose and write their own songs. We look a different techniques to help you get "un-stuck" and to widen your chord range and feel in songs.
Co-writing is included upon request.
I have with both beginner and intermediate students arranged recording sessions with professional studios to document songs in a professional environment complete with band and all!

Young Students:
I combine a both classical note reading/theory with learning by ear. I simplify chords to get students playing quickly and to reap fulfillment from the very first lesson.

Adult Students:
I provide you with the basics in the first three lessons and resources online to help you get moving quickly. We discuss your specific performance goals and track your progress weekly.

Piano - I teach beginning through lower advanced piano. It is important that each student enjoys what they play while developing a firm understanding of the technique for the instrument. Each student will be able to master 3 - 12 major scales within the first six months of playing along with the first 2 - 10 Hanon exercises. Students will also work on various pieces/songs ranging from classical to pop depending on the students interests. I try to cater lessons to the individual learning styles of each student while trying to introduce new and interesting ideas to push the student to the next level. For those that have been playing for a while I will find out where they are on their journey and help guide them from there. For very young children (ages 4 - 5) I encourage parents to take part in their child’s lessons so they can help when their child is practicing at home. It is also important that every student learns how to relax while playing along with forming good practice habits. ...

About Brandon
Brandon has been surrounded by music since a young age, having both parents as musicians. Brandon began his musical carrier playing the trumpet eventually branching out to piano, a little violin, composing, and conducting. He attended the University of Central Florida where he received a BA and MA in composition and conducting respectively.

While in Orlando, Brandon worked as a part of the A Gift for Music program teaching beginning violin to inner-city elementary school children. He was also the conductor of the A Gift for Music Core Orchestra, a group of very talented young string students. Brandon was also the Brass Instructor for a local Jr./Sr. High School where he taught trumpet lessons, coached brass ensembles, and accompanied students on the piano. On top of this Brandon also had a small studio in the area.

Currently Bran
don is a graduate student at the University of Texas in Austin where he is studying composition.

*** Lesson Details ***
As a teacher I find the most important thing is to make sure the student has fun making music. I realize that everyone is different and I try to cater to the needs of the individual while still making sure that there is advancement in technique and musicianship. It is also a goal of mine to make sure that every students learns to practice without having someone ask them to do it.

I believe it is important to have a strong foundation when playing music. If that foundation is there it is easier to have fun making music and far less likely for a student to fail. For beginners I generally start with basic technique and gradually shift into playing pieces. If a student has been playing for a while, I will find out where they are in their musical journey and take it from there. I also try to focus on developing musicianship and individuality. I can not stress how important it is to not only have fun but to practice. It takes a great deal of dedication and effort to become a good musician.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide some music and small things like the occasional rosin or valve oil. I can also help students find rental venues for instruments. I would expect the students to have their own instrument/s and material to properly take care of the instrument. I would also expect them to keep the music we are currently working on with them.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical music though I can teach popular music and basic improvisation. I try to focus on expression and technique with students.

Brandon has been teaching my son for the past 3 years and has been a fantastic instructor in both trumpet and piano. He is very patient, encouraging and understanding with my son. Brandon is diligent and requests the best performance from the kids without being pushy or overbearing. His knowledge of trumpet and piano are exceptional and his demonstrations are impressive. He is always punctual and super nice. I would recommend Brandon as music teacher for any student.

Brandon is by far the best piano teacher I've ever had in my 7-ish years of instruction. He truly cares about your advancement as a student, and goes above and beyond to ensure that you are learning AND having fun. Just within my first lesson with Brandon, he helped me to identify quite a few bad playing habits I had no idea I had developed over the years. He's astoundingly observant and perceptive, and is helping me to improve my posture, my reading skills, etc. Habbits are difficult to break, and I really appreciate his patience and constructive criticism, and that he challenges me to take difficult yet important steps to improve. In the past, I would learn one piece each week with an instructor, then move on without taking the time to perfect it. Brandon will take the time to show you how to TRULY master a piece, even if it takes 5 lessons. I cannot convey how valuable such an experience has been to my own progression. He's also very fun to talk to and makes you feel comfortable and at ease. BEST PIANO TEACHER EVER - HIGHLY RECOMMEND FOR ALL AGES

Great teacher. I'm a total beginner on piano and Leanna has consistently been patient and brought me along at what feels like a very reasonable pace through the fundamentals and basic pieces. She consistently has good tips and helps me work through issues with what feel like very intuitive solutions. Would definitely recommend her to anyone else looking to pick up piano, and would have to imagine she'd be similarly excellent to students who are further along than I am.

Austin, TX

View Full Profile

I’ve played piano most of my musical life. I took regular lessons throughout high school and college. I take slightly different approaches in teaching piano, depending on the student’s age. Most importantly tough, I try to get students familiar with or reading music as soon as possible.
Intermediate piano students of mine become fluent in all major and a few minor keys, plus they meet regular goals through the use of method books. I’ve even taught students how to accompany other instruments and play in ensembles.

About David
My name is David and I'm a professional musician who just moved to North Austin. I came from Cincinnati, where I went to the University of Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music, taught dozens of students at all levels and played regular gigs every weekend. I have been teaching for over fifteen years, and I'm looking to get a few new students.
I teach guitar, piano, bass guitar and even upright bass. If it's a tutor you are looking for I can also teach music theory and appreciation. I have a knack for teaching young people, probably because I was young when I started my musical journey. I've been very successful at inspiring a student's love of music and instilling the patience required to take on the challenge of playing an instrument.
The first thing I like to do is get to know you, the music you enjoy and your goals. In a way, I l
ike to begin by letting the student lead.
In addition to learning from you, I intend to present you with new information, to try and broaden your musical tastes and teach you how to be an active listener.

Beginner through Intermediate classical piano; Beginner through Advanced improvisational piano; Composition and arranging; Acoustic/Electric/Electronic/Organ; Foundational keyboard study applies to all keyboard-based instruments

About Darrell
Why these lessons are different:
- Formally trained conductor/composer/producer
- Individual or group session options including full band production
- A long roster of satisfied clients
- Broad base of musical styles (rock, classical, jazz, blues, metal, bluegrass, folk, theater, big band, symphonic, pop, punk, country, march, gospel, avant-garde...)
- Over 20 yrs teaching experience and work with recognized professionals including work in some of the top-rated private schools in the United States
- Over 30 years performing experience

Instrument-specific instruction:
- Voice
- Guitar [Spanish, acoustic, electric]
- Electric Bass
- Piano/Keyboard
- Woodwinds [specializing in saxophones]
- Percussion
- Brass & Bowed Strings [performance preparation only]

My process is based on (but does not adhere strictly to
) the Classical approach to Western tonal harmony and asks that the students develop certain fundamentals of technique and theory. In my experience, this structure creates the strongest foundation for pupils to build the rest of their musical lives on, whether professionally or solely for personal enjoyment. All of my students are on the fast track to studying music theory. Whatever level they are at when I start with them, I guide their efforts into bringing the students up to a certain level of comprehension regarding the mathematical aspects of music and how it relates to their instruments. This understanding of theoretical principles of sound allows the students to play any style of music they wish, no matter how their tastes may change throughout their lives.

Students will learn to read music, develop proper form, technique, ear training, sight reading, taste as well as improvisational skills in a fun, relaxed and individualized fashion. We will explore the many forms of musical expression and key points in history to help prepare for performance and composition.

About Madison
I have studied music for 15 years and been teaching for 6 years. I have experience in teaching various skills such as voice, guitar, piano, ukulele, and many other instruments/skillsets to a wide range of ages and personalities. I studied Music Theory and Ear Training at Lone Star College in Tomball, TX and studied traditional and non-traditional voice for 12+ years prior. With guitar, piano and other instruments, I am partially, but not entirely, self-taught. I credit books, videos, and musicians that have given me secrets and tricks. I am fulfilled by witnessing growth in my students, and love the "Ah-HA!" moments. My approach is based on the student's learning patterns and interests, and tailor my lessons to each individual student. My main musical building blocks are 1)Rhythm is the most important element of music. 2)Understanding the
importance of persistence, practice, and patience with any skill and technique. 3)Energy can be manufactured and put it into musical expression.

Suvida gave lessons to my 4 year old son at UT. I was nervous at first because they were his very first lessons in piano, but Suvida had a calm and gentle approach, and my son liked her immediately. She had a lot of patience and had ways of teaching him that we're relatable for his age and level of understanding. I would definitely recommend her lessons!

Suvida teaches my 10-year old, and I initially turned to Suvida because my daughter's previous teacher, whom we had for 3 years, was painfully inadequate. I was chatting with Suvida about things that bothered me as being improper techniques, though I myself had only taken piano lessons for 1 year as a child. Suvida's "horror" by what I detailed, and then her launching into all that my daughter should've been able to achieve after 3 years of lessons, convinced me that we needed her as our teacher!
Her attention to details, which as a child violinist of 11 years myself, is something that I surely appreciate! And I can already see the vast improvement in my daughter, after only one year of lessons with her! Thank you, Suvida!

She makes the lessons interesting to children in different ways, for instance, getting them to use their bodies to understand concepts, like clapping to count out beats. I highly recommend her as a music teacher.

I teach piano students of all different ages and experience levels. I studied classical piano for 16 years, and contemporary keyboard for 11 of those. I can teach students to read music and pursue classical excellence, to learn how to play contemporary music using chord sheets, or both depending on the goals and preference of the student.

As a professional recording artist/producer I frequently take trips to Korea for co-writing, recording/producing, and meeting with record labels.

My personal passion is classical music but I firmly believe that great technique is essential to any and every style. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!
