Beginner to intermediate.
Piano is maybe the ideal instrument for a beginning musician. One can develop skills and acquire knowledge of music that can used for the rest of his or her life, and can be transferred to any number of other instruments.
I mostly teach beginner piano (most of my students are 6-10 years old), but I can also help those casual players out there who'd like to tighten up their playing, or maybe improve their sight reading.

About Ray
Born in Arlington, Texas, I began playing guitar and bass guitar in high school. After studying for several years under Joey Faust, I studied Jazz, Classical Guitar, and Music Theory at TCC in Fort Worth. I began teaching in my free time to friends and family in 2003; by 2008 I was teaching full time, my students ranging in age from 3 to over 70. I also play piano, mandolin, banjo, ukulele, and auto harp.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe lessons should be fun, so all lessons are tailored to the individual student, based on the student's interests and goals. Students are free to progress at their own pace, and to choose their own learning material. Styles and techniques include Rock, Country, Blues, Bluegrass, Jazz, Shred, Slide Guitar, Classical Guitar, and Slap Bass, to name a few.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons in my home stud
io are definitely more beneficial to the student, because I have all my toys here! Besides having all of my other instruments here for demonstrations, or being able to freely change between electric or acoustic guitar for example.
I also find that students who are at home (especially the children) tend to be more distracted, whether it's from lack of privacy due to the area chosen for the lessons, or often (again, this goes especially for the kids) there are pets that they like to play with while I'm trying to talk to them.
When they're guests in my home, however, I find I have their strict attention.

*** Specialties ***
I am primarily a guitar player specializing in electric lead guitar and solo acoustic guitar/vocal performance. I also teach beginner to advanced bass guitar, primarily finger-style.

I started playing recognizable melodies at 18-months old. I have over 40 years of performance experience, and 20 years of teaching experience. I love sharing classical and contemporary tools with those that desire to create and to perform.

About Joel
I started playing recognizable melodies on the piano at 18 months old. At that time I was told that I even had perfect pitch. By age 5, my mother started giving me classical, gospel, and improvisational lessons. I was one of her 50 students until my senior year in high school. Through elementary, junior high, and high school, I received a lot of performance experience from school marching/concert bands, choirs, church choirs, piano concerts, band/choral conducting, and composing.

I received my BBA in Finance from the University of Texas at Arlington; through college and to the present, I have received over 25 years of performing/directing experience from overseeing two mega-church music ministries. At these ministries, I served as the department head, responsible for lead piano, directing, arranging, worship leading, and departmen
tal oversight.

I have produced 10 personal instrumental projects, and I have produced and recorded over 40 projects for other local, regional, and international artists. I currently travel with national, jazz, recording saxophonist, Joseph Vincelli, and my personal band Zamar. We have performed with a number of acts from Kirk Franklin, Darren Rahn, Kirk Whalum, Boney James, Fred Hammond, and many more.

As an instructor, I have been blessed with an ability to be relatable, relevant, musical, creative, fun, and engaging. I understand the language of music as a performer, and instructor, but most importantly, I value the ability to help the student find their own path of learning the joy of making music vocally and instrumentally. With over 18 years of private teaching experience and 30 years of group experience, I have gained a wealth of knowledge on how to be instructive and personal with the young or older beginner, intermediate and even advanced players. Let's grow together musically.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching style is very laid back, although goal-oriented. We have fun while seeing progress. For piano, I typically use the Alfred Series "Alfred Basics 1 - 6" or the Adult All-in-One for the Older Beginner. In the first 3 - 6 months, one will become familiar with basis technics and concepts behind creating music. These concepts will be the foundation behind learning how to read music, play by ear, and create your own songs in any style.

We would move a little faster for the older beginner and work through the Alfred's All in One in conjunction with introducing my 5 steps to performance for any popular style. These steps have been very valuable for those that are wanting to play piano, guitar, bass, or even sing.

For vocalist, I work through Estelle Liebling, Vocal Course, Alfred Piano (as an instrumental reference) and a number of practical performance techniques that I have gained over the years to sing in more of a pop, jazz, gospel setting. We will work on performance techniques and develop the ear to gain confidence to perform in various popular settings. I will also introduce creative ways to make up original music using basic theory and ear training.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Acoustic Piano, Yamaha MOXF8, Roland Fantom, Protools 9, Logic ProX, Midi Keyboards, Bass Mod 5 String Bass, Acoustic and Electric Guitar, and Tama Drum Kit.

His instruction was a wonderful supplement to what I learned at the University. His is very knowledgeable, competent technically and hilarious! In addition to everything he offers musically, he is one of the best people I've ever known. Thank you Joel, for sharing your gifts!

About Ryan
Hey There! Summer is here! Let's play some music!!

My name is Ryan B. I play and teach guitar, bass and drums, and piano and would love to teach you or help you improve your abilities! I have been playing all four instruments for 25 years, and I have a personal, laid-back style that helps connect with each student.

I have been with TakeLessons for over five years now, and am truly blessed to have worked with so many great students.I will teach you what YOU want to play, regardless of style or genre you like in music. I design my lessons around YOU, and what YOU want to learn!

Let's talk guitar! Guitar is the ultimate instrument to learn! It is versatile and portable and you can learn quickly, regardless of your favorite style. I teach acoustic and electric guitar. I cover basics, such as chords, scales and solo work. I
cover a wide range of artists such as: The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran. Regardless of your favorite band or style, I can help you accomplish your goals!

Piano is one of the most important instruments to learn, especially for children. The benefits are endless. For piano, I teach beginner through intermediate students. Piano is a popular choice because it has a very friendly layout with the keyboard. I use a proven 6 level method to take you from Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star to Ode to Joy! I cover how to read sheet music and cover a wide variety of musical styles!

Do you like the deep, powerful sound of the bass guitar? Well, I cover that too! The bass is a FUN instrument that is very friendly to learn. If you ever want to join a band, the bass is essential instrument, because it goes well with the drums. I cover a wide range of styles from blues, funk, rock and jazz! Go for it!

As a kid did you set up pots and pans or pillows and hit them with spoons like I did? Well, then the drums may be for you! You can learn drums with a pair of sticks! Drums are a total BLAST to play, and if you are not one who wishes to read sheet music,then the drums are perfect for you! I cover a TON of different styles, and if you have a favorite drummer, you can learn to play like him or her relatively quickly!

Need academic help? Well I can help with that too! I tutor in most subjects, including: Math, Science, Reading, Writing Skills and ACT and SAT prep

*** Lesson Details ***
Students can expect my lessons to focus on your goals. I cover a lot of fundamentals and basics to start, and then go through more advanced techniques as the student progress. In a short period of time, you will know chords, notes, techniques, rhythm and timings, just to name a few!

Guitar students will learn basic chords, barre chords and soloing techniques. Bass students will learn bass notes, bass lines and soloing.

Drum students will learn timing, fills, soloing and lead drumming.

Yana Giles has been the best piano teacher I have ever taken lessons from out of all 5 teachers I've had. She is patient, encouraging and motivational through every piece she assigns me. My appreciation for music grew an enormous amount after beginning lessons with her. My hand technique improved, as well as performance ability. I recommend her to anyone looking to learn the piano! Even if you have already learned the piano and wish to improve somehow, Yana will show you a new understanding of music that you never thought you could have.

Learn to play a variety of styles of music while also learning the basics of music theory.

About Melodie
Music has been a very important part of my life for a long time. I began taking piano lessons at age 9 and also started as a church musician that same year. Some people would say I was a very fast learner! I was, and still am, very interested in every aspect of music. I began singing in church and school a few years after that. I have played and performed a variety of styles of music but I have the most experience with Christian music, classical, pop and R & B. I am confident that I can teach you whatever style you are interested in! I am currently a high school choral director and a minister of music for church. I also play in a band with a group of my co-workers where we perform mostly pop, rock and oldies. I have been doing private lessons since I was in high school and have taught school music for 25 years. I've taught genera
l education, choir, band and general music. I also do some composing.

I attended Jarvis Christian College (1984-1989) where I majored in All-Level Music Education. I received a Bachelor of Science in Education degree in May of 1989.

After I was hired at my first school, I started working on additional certification at Texas Christian University and Texas Wesleyan University. I completed the required subjects and received certification in general education in 1991. I am currently certified in 3 areas: General Music 1-8, All-Level Music K-12 and General Education 1-8.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe that all students can and will learn something if they put forth some effort! I also believe that learning music should be fun! I'm a pretty laid back person but I am very serious about my time and yours being well spent! I use a method book for piano lessons, as well as, a variety of other materials based on your interest and level. I also use a variety of materials for voice lessons. At the first lesson I will find out what your goals for learning music are. I will also find out what types of music you are interested in and we'll go from there! I do believe in challenging students. I do expect you to sincerely want to learn and to demonstrate your interest through weekly practice and attendance at your lessons.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Keyboards, microphones, recording equipment, music stands and supplemental books and materials

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students will need to have the required lesson book. All students will need a spiral notebook and a pen or pencil. Voice students will also need a black binder.

Ms. Brookins is an excellent teacher. Although I had a few ideas of how to sing, I had no idea how technical it was. After a couple of weeks of struggling, she helped me further understand the complexity of the voice. She is great at going at the students pace while trying to help them grow musically.

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. She was accepted to Southern Methodist University's Division of Music for Piano. She is the church pianist at Westview United Methodist Church. Elisa is also the keyboardist for SMU’s World Music Ensemble.

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 knowledge of piano with her students!

I believe in teaching fundamental skills (posture, hand position, music theory, rhythm, scales) as well as doing some music that the students’ want to play and will enjoy. Playing music should be fun, and I am very patient when it comes to seeing each student grow and advance in their craft!

Learning to read music is the foundation to help students explore playing other styles of music they enjoy. I was classically trained from a young age and had no idea that it would help become the musician I am. I not only play classically but can pick up several styles of music by ear because of theory and ear training.

Maybe you are someone who can play by ear, but would like to learn how to read music and understand the theory behind what you play? Music theory is very important, and I love seeing the lights bulbs come on when students see how the songs they know play are really put together!

About Brittany
I began taking piano when I was 7 years old. My older sister was taking lessons and I wanted to be like her. One day, my mom heard some music in the background, and my older sister went grab my mom to show her it was me playing with no sheet music in front of me. I was just copying what I had heard my sister play. That is where my musical journey began. None of my immediate family plays any instruments or sings professionally. My mom decided to put me in lessons, and I have been playing ever since.

I had such a wonderful teacher and she believed I could play anything she placed in front of me. Later at the age of 12, I started playing at church and playing for people who sang solos in church. It was my piano teacher and high school choir teacher who believed I could do music in college. I auditioned and was awarded scholarship money.
I never imagined over 10 years later that I would still be teaching music.

I am such a fun, patient person when I am with my student whether in the classroom or teaching privately. Music absolutely changed my life and gave me a positive way to express myself!! I’m so glad my parents thought enough to get me started with lessons!

I have been teaching in the public schools since 2012 and privately since 2013. I took a break from teaching privately to focus on teaching high school. As I begin teaching privately again, I look forward to helping students discover their full potential. Let’s get to work!

I have forty years of teaching experience and have taught students with learning disabilities to senior citizens teaching all genres, levels and ages in your home or mine. Each lesson is curtailed to student ability, genre of music desired to learn, ear training, music theory and song writing.

Students learn to play songs quickly and with confidence; as music should speak to you. Through my years of teaching experience I've had great success in all areas as teaching is my passion.

Students learn to read music and some by ear or combination of both to be well rounded pianist. Watching students pursue and fulfill their goals are my primary objectives.

I care. I want students to enjoy learning, and am happy to be a part of their musical journey. I do treat students as individuals, and tailor lessons that are unique to each student based on their level, and talents. I also consider their personal goals and wishes, favorite music genres, and in many cases; parents' wishes. I try to help a student become a musician as well as a player by instructing them on theory, and technique. I also have an extensive performance background as a professional musician in classical, rock, and pop music which gives me a variety of stylistic choices to assist the student during lessons. I am a hard teacher; yet a fun teacher!

About Jamie Leigh
I am a professional vocalist and pianist. I perform and do studio work all over the country. I have studied music at North Texas State University (UNT), and at New England Conservatory in Boston. I am classically trained; however; my career has been made singing and playing comtemporary popular music. I also have professional theatre experience as well.

I have had the pleasure of teaching many students who have gone on to professional music careers. I am a very caring teacher, and will do my best to help a student become the best singer or player they can become. I am able to teach all styles of music. I am a very fun teacher; yet challenging teacher. I am encouraging, and I have years of training to share.

I have been performing in my band SHAZAM! as an encore favorite across the country. In 2012 I was a featured vocalist on Dymaxi
on Vehicle's CD....that recording won the coveted Artist In Music Award in Los Angeles. I have had a CORI Check as required by law to work with children. I am also a mother myself as well.

I tailor lessons based on the level, talent, skills, and areas needing work in the student's musical development process.I treat students as individuals...similar to a tutor or coaching relationship. Many students are naturally talented, and simply need more direction, and perhaps, technique, and basic music theory knowledge. In vocal study, proper breathing, vocal exercisers to improve singing and flexibility, and strength are part of lessons. In addition; I assist in choosing material, prepping for performances or auditions, and preserving and enhancing the natural voice of the student.

As a piano teacher; I can work with students at all levels as well. I am very good with beginners. I also have more to offer more advanced students in a concentration on technique, and add a music theory component to lessons as it helps them to become a better musician and instrumentalist. Thank you for your time!

I am a senior citizen who never had played piano before. Jamie was very patient with me and tailored lessons to my needs and interests. I made a lot of progress with her encouragement. She has a wonderful personality.
