Robert is very nice and polite. I think the lesson was sufficient for the first lesson. He gave me homework to work on the D, G, and C chords. We went over the right hand numbering PIMA. I need to determine what my goals are in playing the guitar.

I am very happy with my guitar lesson with Mr. Calva. He is very knowledgeable and very patient. He found out my musical background and goals. He used that to structure my lessons today. He then gave me homework, tips, and short term goals. I am super pleased with his style of teaching. By the way, I am 50 years young...

About Janet
JANET F. BIOGRAPHY: Teaching Piano and Voice to young people is truly my first love. I enjoy coaching and encouraging pianists and vocalists whether they be a young beginner or an advanced player and offer over forty years of experience as a teacher, educator and performer.

"Quality begins with the teacher". A native of Jacksonville, Fl. I began my classical piano studies at the age of 5, under Mrs. Joy Warren who was a student of the renowned Dr. Leo Podolski. I remained with her for twelve years. A graduate of Stetson University School of Music, with a major in Piano and Voice. I studied piano performance under Dr. Roger Cushman, Senior Professor of Piano at Stetson University, who received his Masters and Doctorate at Yale and Oxford University. I studied Vocal Performance under Mollie Rich, Professor of Voice, and after rece
iving my Piano and Voice degree at Stetson University I chose to do further vocal study under Jane Rolandi, opera singer, and Professor of Voice at Converse College in South Carolina.

I am currently a member of the Texas Music Teachers Association (TMTA), Cypress Creek Music Teachers Association (CCMTA local chapter), The National Federation of Music Clubs (NFMC), Conroe Junior Music Club (CJMC) and The American College of Musicians. My studio is open to students of all ages and abilities, from beginners to advanced students preparing for competitions and all the way through to their college auditions. I believe in leading the pupil step by step; with no detail left undone.

I look forward to hearing from you and would like to set up a free consultation before lessons begin, because as a teacher I desire to maximize each students potential and offer you the opportunity to meet me and visit my studio within my home. I am so interested in getting to know you and your child and preparing lessons that meet your child's individual needs.

Sincerely,

Janet S Flye

Janet is the most knowledgeable and technical piano and voice teacher I have ever known. She pushes her students to be the absolute best while encouraging them along the way in their gifts. If you're serious about learning and becoming the best you can be in piano or voice, without a doubt Janet is the teacher for you! She expects a lot from her students, but puts in even more on her end to prepare you to be the best that you can be. You won't find another teacher around who cares about her job the way she does! She is a gem!!

About Rene
I'm 18 years old, currently a senior at Cypress Woods High-School who has been a participant in music since the age of 10. Music to me is something very important, so important that I love it when I'm able to share the experience with others. I believe that's what we need, some sort of medium to remind us who we are as people, when we die our sound will still remain on Earth. I have astronomical dreams of becoming a producer and if I can somehow gain financial help by also helping others with music that would be a fair trade-off. I'm someone who will make learning an instrument fun, no one should have to leave the experience of learning something because of the instructor. You're child can explain his/her goals and I will do by best to help in achieving those goals while still keeping in mind the technical aspect of practicing.

Ally gave my daughter piano lessons and was fantastic! My daughter started when she was 7 and quite unsure of herself. Ally was very patient and encouraging, helping my daughter grow in her musical talent as well as her confidence outside the studio. Ally's music book collection covers both classical and pop music which helped to keep my daughter engaged. I would recommend her to anyone!

About Timothy
Although you probably won't recognize the name of the small Bible College from which I received my degrees, I can assure you I received a well rounded education in both music and education. I began learning piano at about 8 years old, and for the past 10 years I have taken lessons from a master teacher, who understands not only the ins and outs of the technical side of playing the piano, but also what it takes to develop the musicality of a student. My voice teachers and choir directors have also had an excellent balance of technical skill and musical sense. I have taken a number of classes both in general education, and specifically on piano and choral pedagogy, as well as all the standard music classes such as music history and music theory. I am therefore prepared to adapt to the individual needs of most beginner and intermediate stude
nts desiring to pursue a further knowledge in music.

Everyone has unique needs and desires regarding an education in music. That is why I teach each student individually to help them achieve their goals. Just because I don't have a set methodology, however, doesn't mean that I teach chaotically. I balance the need for order and discipline with freedom of musical expression.

I studied harp at Sam Houston State University from 2009-2015 where I received my bachelor and master degrees in instrumental performance. During that time, I was able to tour Puerto Rico as principal harpist of the SHSU orchestra as well as perform in a variety of recitals including chamber, solo, and in concerts with large ensembles. I have performed with the Laredo Symphony and am frequently hired by the SHSU Wind Ensemble and Concert Band. I have been given many opportunities to perform and delight in sharing music whether I play in a concert hall or in a dark corner creating an easy-going atmosphere. Having experience as a performer, I relish teaching and "passing the torch" to fellow harpists - beginning, advanced, or somewhere in between.

About Kristian
Want to be a Rockstar Drummer? Every lesson will be uniquely structured to each students skill level and desired goals. We will cover grips, technique, song structures, rudiments, and learn to play some of your favorite rock, EDM, metal, ska, blues, and jazz songs.
During high school, drum line was my life. I played bass, snare, marimba, and tenors for a nationally acclaimed marching band. As drum captain, I encouraged my classmates to give 110% and after many competitions, we won the Bands of America Grand Nationals in Indianapolis.
After HS, I went on to become a touring & recording artist playing at festivals such as Vans Warped Tour, Batfest, Uproar, and Mayhem. I have had the honor to perform with artists like Blue October, Escape the Fate, DJ Master Mike (Beastie Boys), and so many other amazing performers. I want to help others
achieve their dreams now.
No matter what your goals are in music, it's best to learn from those who have walked the walk. So let's Rock N' Roll!
