About Kevin

Hello, my name is Kevin and I'd love to work with your student (and/or you)! I have taught classical percussion within nationally recognized, public school programs for over a decade. I help students buckle down for auditions, train to become 4-mallet super heroes, and get in to some of the most ex

When you are looking for a good music instructor, these are the things you have to consider. 1. Price, 2. Location, 3. Teacher's experiences (resume), and 4. Characters of the instructor. The first three are easy to recognize from online information. The last one is hard to get, and yet , for us, the most important factor. Many instructors teach lessons only as a job (for money). They do things only during their "paid time." However, taking music lessons need more than that. A true music educator takes every opportunity to see the potentials of the student, knows how to coach individuals, and build up each student with encouragement and sometimes, discipline. He not only teach weekly lesson to help improved my son's skills, he also do extra to encourage students to go to concert, summer camp and perform at the nursing home. Every year, he arranged every details of a free concert with flyer, communications, equipment and even a professional cameraman! He did all those to encourage students to get out there to perform. We are forever grateful for his help for our son's college and scholarship applications. Mr. Rank is a "student oriented" teacher with a servant heart. If anybody is looking for an "all inclusive teacher, Mr. Rank is the best percussion teacher in DFW area. I can never thank enough for what he has done for my son. I hope my son will one day grow and become a teacher like Mr. Rank who care so much for his students.
Wendy
Kevin is an outstanding music teacher! He taught our child marimba lessons throughout middle school and high school. The benefits of his teachings were amazing. We highly recommend Kevin!
Bonnie
Kevin Rank is an outstanding teacher.! My son is just beginning his 5th year of lessons with Kevin Rank. In the last 5 years, my son has grown from a shy, unsure, extremely quite young man into a confident, 3 time all region percussion player. My boy has grown not only in his musical ability, but in his overall development. I am a strong believer that music is quintessential for all individuals. I am happy to have Kevin Rank helping my son to achieve his full potential as a percussionist and as a leader. He has made impressive advancements in his marimba playing, and Mr. Rank is instrumental in helping him achieve these goals.

I teach Ukulele from the perspective of a modern musician and songwriter. I want to make sure you are relaxed and having fun in our lessons and pursuing the style of music that resonates with you. In ukulele lessons with me you will learn chords and strumming styles, how to read and play tablature, chord charts and sheet music if desired, and other picking and accompaniment styles. If you are a singer, we will also work on playing and singing simultaneously and working through difficult counter rhythms. With these tools you will quickly be able to learn to play the songs you love and even create your own! My lessons are driven by my students taste in music rather than my own, so we will always be playing the music that you love!

Beginner to advanced.
Ukulele is a wonderful instrument. It's very easy to learn, portable, and it makes people smile. The ukulele has enjoyed a tremendous return to popularity over the last few years.
Ukulele lessons are mostly focused on learning chords. It doesn't take long at all to start learning songs. For those more ambitious players, there are plenty of more advanced techniques, such as fingerstyle.

About Ray

After studying for several years under Joey Faust, I studied Jazz, Classical Guitar, and Music Theory at TCC in Fort Worth.

Brindha Kanniah -.
It has been a delight taking lessons with Omar. The sitar is a foreign and old instrument, and Omar was very patient with getting me acclimatized to the instrument itself - all the nuts and bolts of putting the instrument together, tuning and playing the strings. Omar adapts very well to my pace of learning, and teaches with depth, instead of rushing through material. Lessons are always fun and easygoing, and I leave with not just technical knowledge, but with also a feel for the background and vibes of Indian classical music.
Grant
Omar is an amazing teacher! He has taught me a lot about the the history and how to properly play the sitar. Highly recommend learning from him if you are interested in the sitar : )

Omar is very knowledgeable and able to convey that knowledge in an effective and efficient way.

The ukulele is one of the happiest sounding instruments I know. It's small, easy and fun. But don't be fooled, the ukulele is also capable of deep emotion when played well. Together we'll learn how to get the most out of this awesome little instrument.

Excellant Teacher

Evan is patient, understanding and most of all an excellent teacher. He rolls with you at your pace. I feel I have learned more from him with my banjo in a very short period of time than I have learned in a couple of years of guitar. He is fantastic!!
Kabin S.
Evan is great

He is very good teacher. I would recommended him to anyone.
Lane B.
Very impressed

I have had two lessons with Evan so far, and I always schedule my next lesson at the end of each session, as I'm so excited to go back and learn more. Not only are the lessons very informative, and helpful, but he sends me home with video of what we had gone over in the day. This is extremely helpful! When I practice, I have something to revert back to, to help me remember exactly everything he taught me.

This instrument is fun...flat out. Great for all ages, and can be used as a great springboard to guitar and other stringed instruments. I'm able to incorporate decades of music experience and knowledge into teaching the instrument and hope to help the student get the most out of it.

About Joe

I absolutely love teaching music! After over 20 years of teaching, performing, writing, and recording in all styles/genres, it continues to be a great adventure. It is a joy to pass this on to others...especially seeing my students that never touched the instrument going on to be very proficient

You Know It’s All About That Uke: Learning Ukulele in Dallas

By Robert M. - Dallas Ukulele Teacher

Dear Ukulele Enthusiast,

Let me start off with a big howdy and welcome to Dallas y’all! I am happy to provide some wonderful information about the keys to learning to play ukulele here in the famous Dallas-Fort Worth area, better known as DFW.

Now, if you are looking for a jumping off point for starting ukulele lessons in Dallas, then you need to get an instrument first! One place to look is at one of our big city music locations. There are a few landmark centers to seek out such as the infamous Sam Ash Music Store, as well as the unsurpassed surplus that both Guitar Center locations can offer. Guitar Center also features a huge selection of affordable instruments at their two locations with one in North Dallas and their epicenter in the Dallas Central Store which features a fully operable studio.

We can't forget to mention some of the great local shops. Make sure to visit and make friends at the ukulele enthusiast shop owned and operated by local legend Noel Tardy in the UkeLady Music Store where there are beginner workshops to help get you to meet with some neighborhood uke fanatics.

Did you know that there is a huge DFW ukulele community?

Make sure to hit the web and sign up on meetups.com so that you can join the over 800 members that band together as The Dallas Ukulele Headquarters. You can also find a link to the Dallas Ukulele News group that sends out happenings such as upcoming concerts. I won’t forget to mention that these folks seek out public jam sessions where uke players can come together for some fun!

The DFW has a lot to offer to up and coming musicians. I mean, we are talking about the home to huge music superstars like Stevie Ray Vaughn, Kelly Clarkson, Steve Miller, Norah Jones, and many more! You too can get your start with open mic night at some of the most popular lounges, dives, bookstores, and cafes across the area. You can drive over to Half Price Books or Dunn Brothers Coffee every third week of the month to grab your piece of the spotlight. You can also try out weekly at Kay's Restaurant and LightHouse Coffee Shop. Make sure to keep up with the music venues and concert halls for musicians coming through such as the Kessler Theater and Bass Hall.

Don't wait to start your musical journey. Taking ukulele lessons in Dallas is a wonderful way to start making music and have fun along the way. Signing out from here in the beautiful state of Texas...

Musically Yours, Robert M.
