About Rob
I'm a professional bass player in Austin Texas, the Live Music Capital of the World. At one time or another I've played just about every style of music, and I have more than a decade of teaching experience. I love 'opening doors' for students, helping them understand how music works and how they can sound better than ever. I graduated from B.I.T. in Los Angeles and I have thousands of hours of teaching, gigging, and recording experience. I'll share that experience with you!

*** Lesson Details ***
I like to use real music to show how technical concepts work. Once I've gotten to know you and your musical goals and preferences, I'll point you towards the knowledge you need, and show you how that knowledge works in the music you like.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music room: recording equipment, bass, amp, chairs, music stands, additional seati
ng for parents.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I bring my bass, iPod, tuner, drum machine,manuscript paper,etc. The student needs to provide adequate space and amplification.

Adam is helping me get back to playing guitar after some 40 years in which I did not play at all. With his help, I’m refreshing what I used to know (basic chords and notes on the staff), and extending my skills into new areas, like finger-picking, barre chords, and tablature-reading--plus learning a lot of new songs. He’s an excellent teacher.

As a middle aged man trying to learn an instrument, it was a daunting task to find a teacher that would work with me to learn the basics of guitar without laughing at my inability to actually play the darn thing.

Adam has been a great teacher and exactly the sort of professional and understanding person I was looking for. While I don't think my mediocre (getting better every week) guitar skills are the best testament to Adam's ability as a teacher, I think the fact that he has encouraged me to stick with it and turn a crazy idea into a legitimate hobby is.

About Mike
I teach mandolin at all levels, and I know that it is one of the most fun and friendly instruments.
But to play the mando well looks a lot easier than it is, unless you have learned your lessons and done your homework. I love to teach the basics and show all the basic things you have to do to be a good mando player.
Most tunes I will teach you are old timey, blues, fiddle tunes, swing, also special notes on playing with a band, playing backup, and of course, bluegrass.
I like to teach old school Bill Monroe/ Bill Napier style of Bluegrass Mando.
Basic musical questions are also welcome

About Jessica
I am so lucky to be a musician and share my love of music with the world! My career as a professional music teacher in Round Rock ISD is one way I reach hundred of children each day with my passion for music. I am able to continually learn, grow, and expand my practice of teaching through daily experience, conferences, and professional development.

I began playing flute in middle school at the age of 12. I was lucky to have the opportunity to attend the prestigious LaGuardia High School for Music and Art and the Performing Arts, in addition to the Juilliard School on the weekends. I continued to study flute into college and graduate school, where I studied with world renowned professors at established music conservatories.

My passion for teaching and love of music have brought me to play and live internationally. I am grateful
for the experiences I have had and continue to have as a musician!

About Alexis
Though a bit shy by nature, I have always loved the stage and fine arts. In 2013 I graduated with my Bachelors in Music, emphasis in Musical Theatre, from Ouachita Baptist University. While there, I studied privately with Ms. Suzetta Glenn (voice) with repertoire including art songs, arias, and musical theatre pieces. I also had the chance to study and work with several theatre faculty, including the then Dean of the School of Fine Arts, Dr. Scott Holsclaw, both in class and during theatrical productions. I participated in several choirs while at OBU including Ouachita Sounds (2010-2011), and Ouachita Singers (2011-2013), and even had the opportunity to serve my school in the highly coveted role of Tiger Tunes Hostess in the Fall of 2011. Since college, I have been involved with my church’s praise team, and have volunteered with the youth
praise team assisting in the area of vocals. In October of 2017, after a location-induced hiatus from the theatre, I had the chance to return to the stage for a community theatre production of Blithe Spirit by Noel Coward, in which I played Elvira.

Lessons with me will focus on proper breathing technique, strengthening the voice, and performance techniques. I teach many styles of music, including musical theatre, pop, country, worship, jazz, classical, and choral. I'd love to help you reach your vocal goals!

About Victor
My name is Victor, and I would love to help you further your skills and love for guitar!

I have a Master's degree in Guitar Performance -- emphasis on Classical and Flamenco -- from the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley. I have been providing private lessons in guitar for over 10 years for students of all ages and skill levels. I also perform and gig regularly. In my career, I have played several well known pieces, such as Entre Dos Aguas by Paco De Lucia, Asturias by Isaac Albeniz, and Recuerdos De La Alhambra by Francisco Tarrega.

Lesson plans are tailored to the student's needs and goals, which can be anything from learning how to read music, learning how to play by ear, furthering one's technique, etc. In lessons with me, you can expect to develop the basics of proper classical techniques, all the way to mastery, enabling y
ou to play fast and precise.

My goal as a teacher is to develop a strong foundation to allow students to eventually learn songs on their own with ease. I strive to create a fun environment to foster learning and keep students engaged in the task at hand. My schedule is flexible and I am open to lessons at my home, your home, or online. I can't wait to get started!

Victor has been coming to our home to teach my 12-year-old daughter the piano and guitar. He’s done well not only to teach her to play and write music but has imparted great enthusiasm in her for playing the instruments . I would highly recommend him for the position.

About Jaime
Hello! I am an avid musician around town, a graduate from UT Austin with a B.S. in Mathematcs, and I just finished my first year of service with Americorps teaching literacy! I’m extremely passionate about helping others learn and express themselves. Guitar is a cornerstone of my life and being able to share my 14 years of knowledge with others, guide them, and help them learn to play their favorite music on stage or write their own songs is amazing. From studios downtown, to the stage during SXSW, I offer experience based teaching on everything guitar and music. I have always loved math since I was young and was very excited to study it in college. I understand that this can be a frustrating subject, and I aim to get my students to a high level of preparedness and comfortability that will transfer over into their performance in the class
room and tests. I aim for the same high level of performance in math in reading as well. I have always loved reading but I never knew how to teach this important skill. During my service term with Americorps, I gained the knowledge and skills to teach early literacy and get students reading at grade level or help them get a head start in their elementary school.
