View Full Profile

For beginners I will get them going on basics as fast as they can thru the 1st 3 or 4 books then we'll decide what to do next - takes a year or so.

For intermediates I specialize in teaching how to play like a pop musician - songwriter - rock band - country band - studio musician - jazz / blues basics....how to read and write chords and chord charts and how to play using chord charts.

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.

Piano is a wonderful instrument that anyone can learn at any age. From the first lesson I will have the student playing on the piano. I try to tailor the lessons for each student. We will move at your pace.

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.

Tammye has been my daughters piano teacher going on five years now. She is laid back and my daughter has always enjoyed playing the piano. She has never dreaded lesson or asked to not play. I've heard of some kids crying after lessons and this has never ever been the case with Tamye. My daughter started out loving lessons with Tamye and still does... she is in middle school now. She has never felt pressured. She has always come away from the lessons having learned something new and now plays beautifully. This year my five year old boy has started lessons with Ms. Tammye and he also is enjoying them. Tamye has been the perfect teacher for our family. We took a summer break to try out a local music school (same price and we had to drive there) and it didn't compare to the quality we get with Ms. Tammye. As long as our kids are playing piano they'll be having Ms. Tammye as their teacher.

This "teacher" doesn't know anything about music, let alone playing the trumpet, or any instrument. Complete HACK with zero skills who shouldn't even be charging $15 an hour!!! Also, she was extremely rude in all correspondence with me. I'm beyond thankful that I didn't have to smell her likely putrid, unwashed, unkempt stench through the webcam or in person. Stay FAR away.

I have been teaching piano lessons for several years now, to students ranging from 4 to 50 years of age. In the first lesson, students can expect to learn the musical alphabet, location of middle C, the correct posture and hand position, as well as some simple musical exercises depending upon the student's age and ability. My goal in teaching is to help people gain an understanding and appreciation of the piano, as well as the workings of music as a whole. While my background is in classical piano, I enjoy working with students on any style of music that utilizes sheet music.

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.

Plano, TX

I teach piano holistically, encouraging a well-rounded knowledge of the piano and various genres of music. Along with technique, I encourage the student's exploration of the piano by improvisation. As a sight-reading lover, I also teach sight-reading so students can easily discover pieces on their own. I want students to develop the proper foundations to discover music at their own leisure.

About Elisa
Elisa grew up in Austin Texas and started playing piano at the age of 5. She comes from a family of pianists and piano teachers, and played piano throughout high school.

In 2013 she attended University of Rochester, and took piano lessons at the highly acclaimed Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York. Sight reading and discovering new music was her passion, and she developed a taste for classical music outside of lessons. Elisa accompanied friends in talent shows, and started teaching piano to other students. She got accepted to Southern Methodist University's Division of Music for Piano Education. She is the church pianist at Westview United Methodist Church.

Elisa loves helping her students cultivate their passion for music, whatever style it may be. She loves the journey of music discovery, and is excited to share her k
nowledge of piano with her students!

I received a B.A. in music from Arizona State University. I have experience with orchestral, jazz and popular styles of music. Lessons should be fun and oriented to the interests of the student. I have worked with all ages and experience levels and look for ways to challenge myself as a teacher.

About Tyler
I have been in a music student for most of my life having begun playing the piano at an early age. I began playing bass guitar at the age of 10 and the double bass and studying orchestral music at the age of 12. Bass guitar is the instrument that I feel most comfortable playing in a variety of styles and genres. This comfort on the bass guitar has been supplemented by training on the double bass through a better understanding fingering technique and how notes on the instrument are arranged and organized. I continued with both instruments throughout my time at Newman Smith High School in Carrollton, Texas. While at Arizona State University I was able to focus on the double bass and become more knowledgeable about music theory, history and composition. I used this knowledge to increase my abilities to train my hands on the bass but also the
piano and guitar as well.

I have been fortunate enough to be able study and perform in an eclectic variety of musical genres and styles during the majority of my musical development. This diversity of experience has allowed me to understand multiple ways of explaining a concept: use of solfege improvisation and using rhythmic patterns to name a few. I employ this diversity to help students develop their instrumental, aural and reading abilities. Through my experiences with music I have been able to perform in Orchestral Ensembles, Jazz Quartets and Big Bands, Latin Jazz Bands, Rock Bands, Funk and Blues groups, Pop groups as well as compose original music. To me music is multifaceted and so are good musicians. In addition to learning an instrument I hope my students learn problem-solving skills for their own benefit. While working with students my goal is to show that investing in quality practice only builds confidence and refines the ability express and articulate their creativity.
