I've taught music theory to bass players, guitar players, keyboard players, even a drummer! I wrote Austin Guitar School's music theory course, and I enjoy helping people understand what they're doing, and how to do it better. Knowledge is power!

Darrell helped me a lot to get a handle on my Ableton rig. I needed to set up midi tracks, locate presets to create cool sounds from plugins. Then I needed to export the audio of a couple of those tracks to import into a separate Pro Tools project. Lot of progress, thanks Darrell! -- Frank S

Danielle Cooke has taught my two sons (aged 10 and 6) piano for over a year now, and we have been very happy with her. Having played piano for almost 15 years when I was younger, I have been looking for the right fit to start my children on their own music journey. Danielle was referred to us by a friend, and we have been so pleased to find someone who enjoys teaching children, and who can balance patience, humor, theory and skill in her lessons. She challenges my children in a warm and nurturing way, and in a way that draws them in to the music and gives them pride of their accomplishments. With these ages and two very distinct learning personalities, it is amazing to see how they both resonate with her teaching style and are learning at their own levels, and have come so far in a short time. She has many teaching tools in her back pocket, and an appreciation for classical, contemporary, and recognizable children’s music (an important mix for little ones!). I have caught a glimpse of her own talents and her students’ work at more advanced levels and can see Danielle’s impressive range of repertoire and expertise across a variety of styles. She has a gift!

My son is thirteen now and was taking piano lessons from her for more than four years. I am fond of watching him learn and grow his piano playing skills everyday. His teacher, Ms. Danielle, guides and polishes his skills while giving him new challenges continuously. Also, she is flexible with our expectations from my son and she makes the learning to play piano is fun. She is a great asset for the community and wish her all the very best.

If you want to take your musicianship to the next level, be able to converse fluently with fellow musicians during rehearsal, and write songs or create arrangements with other musicians, learning about theory is a MUST! Theory is what you need if you want a strong base as a musician and and make communication faster with other musicians, and I am here to explain and demystify this topic!

My BA had an emphasis in "classical" music theory but I'm also well versed in jazz theory and pop and rock. My understanding of music plays a role in everything I play and write. I love it and love teaching it.

I came away from my lesson with James feeling so happy and knowing that he will be teaching and encouraging me all the way going forward. I am actually lost for words to express what an incredibly positive experience I had today. I am also looking forward to my grand daughter taking lessons from James now too. I feel I got lucky that James is the teacher that was found for me.

"Ahmad is very energetic and passionate about guitar and teaching guitar to people. He is very organized and systematic in his teaching. His style of teaching enables students to learn and get to know a wide variety of guitar aspects very quickly. He breaks up lessons into short but consumable modules while at the same time giving something concrete to start playing and get going from the word go whether you are a beginner or not. I've been going to him for several months now and would highly recommend Ahmad for his guitar teaching skills!"
