About Mei
I am an enthusiastic and fun teacher. I acquired my bachelor's and master's degree in piano performance. I started playing piano at the age of 6. Since I was 8 years old, I have been trained systematically and professionally throughout my years in school. My solo performances and recitals were held when I was attending the University of Wyoming. I have great passion towards performing in public, but I found greater love in teaching piano. I have 10 years of teaching experiences. I believe that the piano is our best friend and keep it close to our heart and shares this love with the world when we play.

*** Lesson details ***
Strict but fun and enthusiastic, these words were said by my students after years of teaching. In Piano lessons, I assign diverse music repertories in order to assist students to have the ability to grasp the essen
tials of each different style of music. Learning piano skills is very important, but note-reading, theory, ear training and music history can't be neglected. I will include all these subjects consistently during the lessons to help the students build stronger and richer musicality. One or two recitals will be provided by me, all the students are encouraged to participate in the recitals.Students are also encouraged to take advanced performance opportunities, in church, school, and joint studio recitals. I must be notified at least one month in advance if the student desires to participate in the events.

Students responsibility:
-Daily practice is strongly recommended. It is important and necessary for steady progress.
-Students should have neat, clean, trimmed nails at every lesson.
-Students must be prepared for each lesson.

Parents responsibility:
-Parents should promptly pick up their children at the end of each lesson.
-Parents should regularly check and support the students practice routine.

*** Studio Equipment ***
One Yamaha piano, space for parents to sit and observe lessons.

*** Specialties ***
classical piano,music theory, ear-training

IMPORTANT NOTE: the studio space is inhabited by an energetic, adorable Jack Russel terrier. Do consider this when you plan to sign up for lessons.

As a lover of music since 7 years of age, and growing up in a musical household, I have gained detailed knowledge of the piano through my education and performing experience. I help students in solving technical issues that arise from the beginning, and offer the tools necessary for productive enjoyable practice.

Whether the student is prepping for auditions or playing for themselves, I help keep them on solid technical ground, and encourage them to love the sounds they are making.

About Adam
Hi, my name is Adam Vincent Clay, 29, and I have been playing piano since I was 7 years old, and teaching private lessons for 8 years in Oklahoma and Texas areas. Since childhood I have been fascinated with the instrument, and I have never stopped falling in love with music.

I've worked with students of all ages and abilities (including adults) on technique, repertoire, ear-training, composition, improvisation, music theory, and application. I take a personalized approach with each student, incorporating multi-sensory elements, and educational extra-lesson assignments. This further enriches the students' understanding, appreciation, and application of the material being presented. I want for each student to develop the love and excitement for music that I have, and to have the practical and technical skills to support their musical
pursuits.

My experience as an arts organizer and performer will allow me to help you build confidence through your performance, and a relaxed natural piano technique that will allow you to go as far as you desire in the study of piano performance. I am passionate about helping you achieve your personal musical goals while giving you a strong foundation in piano technique for support.

Adam is a fantastic teacher! He teaches for all learning styles: visual, auditory and kinesthetic. I've had ineffective teachers in the past because they only related to one learning style. He's great with all ages and his passion for music is contagious.

Perfect class for those interested in starting a path to learn music, music theory, ear training, or have just always been interested in an instrument but have never known where to begin. Piano is so much fun to learn. Students will start with basic techniques and learn to play chords, scales and learn music theory and to site read.

About Rachel
I started my musical path in a Ballet Studio. I fell in love with the crackle of the vinyl record playing as I learned to listen and dance with the rhythm.

I started playing the guitar when I was in elementary and took classical lessons until I was a teenager.I really enjoy the art of practice and the journey of patience. The process of learning has helped me carve out and cultivate my style of music. It's opened up a lot of doors for me in my life. I've had the honor to play with a lot of great performers and have been lucky enough to tour the U.S. and Canada with festivals and showcases such as Vans Warped Tour, South By Southwest and the Halifax Pop Explosion.I've been the opening act for Carolyn Wonderland, Maria Taylor, Tsunami Bomb, Tilly and the Wall, Basia Bulat, Rise Against, Strike Anywhere. Anathallo, Cursive, Milton Hopki
ns, and Pony Up.

When I have free time I volunteer with the Houston Chapter of Girls Rock Camp to help teach girls empowerment through songwriting and music.

*** Lesson Details ***
I began teaching as an afterschool job when I was 16. I was homeschooled, so I feel that the experience taught me that everyone learns differently and that there is not just one standardized method to playing music.

My teaching style varies with each student, but the one constant is my ability to make each and every client I encounter completely fall in LOVE with music. It's my super power.

Lesson plans are tailored for your specific needs and to help you achieve your musical goals and aspirations at your desired pace. I enjoy my students and making music with them.

Here is an overview of the lessons that I provide.

Guitar:
Finger Picking, Song Writing, Rhythm, Lead, Scales,Modes & Ear Training.

Songwriting and composition: Learn techniques, how to brain storm and plot your musical story line. This class pairs great with vocal lessons or guitar lessons.

Bass:
Scales, Rhythm, Beginner and Advanced song structure, Ear Training

Ukulele :
Technique, Intro to Chords, Ear Training, Strumming patterns - Ukulele is one of my favorite classes to teach. You simply can not help but smile when playing this instrument!

Vocals :
Breathing techniques, Scales, Harmonizing

Paul has been a tremendous instructor for me and my journey on learning acoustic guitar. During lessons he has also taught me music theory and explained it simply, and through that I feel like the guitar and music in general has been opened up to me and I now see music more clearly. I highly recommend him as an instructor!

Paul is an amazing teacher and mentor. Today we tackled harmonies while recording and it was so special to me. Paul is dedicated to his craft and his students. He prepares for each lesson, whether vocal or piano, and pushes me further along while reinforcing what we learned previously. He's just the perfect balance of strict and encouraging, always leaving me with a lesson that I had not anticipated and a whole lot of fun. I am so happy I found a teacher as great as Paul, he is truly one of a kind!

We will learn how to read music (note names, rhythms, key and time signatures etc) while learning to play the piano. This kind of a foundation will help you learn other instruments including singing.

About Katie
Becoming a teacher is a special honor. As a teacher, sharing knowledge becomes an important part of life; not because you have to, but because you want to. I feel that I have great qualities that will enable me to be successful in this field. I have a Bachelor's and Master's Degree, and an Artist Diploma in Vocal Performance. I want to teach because I want to make a difference. I want to spark students’ interests; I want to challenge students to discover new things about themselves that they may not have otherwise known. I want to impart my fascination about music and love for singing with my students, so they too can enjoy a life filled with the arts and come to appreciate it on a whole new level. I strongly believe that when you love to do something, it shows, and because I am so passionate about music, my teaching will be that much mo
re effective; I believe music will help make each individual a well-rounded human being and ready to face the challenges of everyday life.

I take a lot of pride in teaching each one of my students. I will work several hours preparing, practicing and finding helpful ways to instruct each child. Every student is an individual, with certain skills and abilities and my job is to find out how to unlock these abilities, so these students will be able to perform at their highest level. I research, practice and prepare for each lesson. Every student I teach is extremely important to me and I want the very best for them in their musical talent. I have students from early childhood to Musically advanced students preparing for college auditions. I love the excitement of my students preparing for the NFMC Gold Cup Competition, National Guild Auditions, TMTA festivals and competitions, as well as the TMTA Theory exams. I make sure my students are prepared and ready, so they have a wonderful experience and enjoy the pleasure of knowing they did well.

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.

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!!

Develop your love of music while learning basic keyboard skills. My easy going style of teaching will keep you motivated and encourage you to enjoy the process of learning.

As a voice instructor with over 20 years experience in the private studio, college environment, church ministry, high school chorus master teacher, and as a free-lance performer, I understand that each student requires tools and techniques unique to their needs to grow and improve. Focusing on the basics of breath control, efficient support, and healthy vocal production, my gift of hearing and assessing each student's strengths and weaknesses allows me to create lessons catered to each singer's specific needs.

With a Master of Music in vocal performance from Peabody Conservatory of the Johns Hopkins University, an appreciation of various styles of music, and my personal investment in each individual singer, I am able to successfully share my knowledge of the vocal instrument and my love of music with my ...

About Holly
As a professional performer, teacher and master teacher with a Master's degree from Peabody Conservatory of the Johns Hopkins University and a Bachelor's degree from California State University, Chico, I have performed with orchestras, chambers groups and choirs throughout the United States and Europe.
Comfortable in both classical and musical theater genres, my knowledge of vocal production and the musical skills needed to succeed in music make me an excellent teacher. I pride myself in having a great ear and instinctual understanding of each student's individual instructional needs.

Before relocating to Houston, I owned and operated a successful full-time private teaching studio in the Atlanta area with voice students succeeding in All-State Chorus, the Governor's Honors Program, college auditions, local competitions, community thea
ter, and school chorus auditions. As a successful soloist and vocal instructor, I pride myself in teaching proper technique, nurturing each student's vocal development, helping singers develop a true love of music, and gaining an appreciation of their unique vocal gifts. Many of my vocalists learn the skills of reading music by learning keyboard and basic theory through piano lessons, which I am also able to teach.

With a creative and personable teaching style, I am able to connect with each student where they need to be met. My students of all ages see an immediate improvement when applying the techniques that I share with them. Focusing on healthy vocal production, good breath support, and proper techniques of support and vowel placement, I am able to help students reach their musical goals through vocal exercises and drills, direct application to selected music, and assigned home practice between lessons. After learning the basics of vocal production, we can further focus on interpretive elements of the songs and students will feel the rewards of making beautiful music with their own free and unique sound.

I had the opportunity to study classical voice with Holly for 3 years in high school. She was not only a phenomenal teacher, but also a wonderful life mentor and friend. Once a part of many voice groups as a child, I grew to love instrumental music and sacrificed my singing career for the flute. When I decided I wanted to come back to the world of vocal music, Holly helped me find my voice again and gave me confidence not only in my talent, but also in myself. She taught me great techniques on how to open up my voice and adapted her teaching style as my voice continued to grow. An overall incredibly understanding and patient person, Holly is the reason I was such a successful soprano. She genuinely cares for all her students and is solely interested in furthering their vocal careers. If I had the opportunity, I would gladly be a student of hers again, any day.

Most composers use a piano because it is music theory laid out in front of you left to right. Learn how to use theory and it unlocks more musical possibilities for you.

About Sean
I have been fortunate enough to have had music in my life since I was a kid. I started out on the drums and since have learned to play piano, guitar, bass, violin, and ukulele. I understand fundamentals are important but believe that they are second to having a good time and cultivating a personal musical identity. I have many influences ranging from Garth Brooks to Ed Sheeran and almost anything in between. I would love to get you playing some of the songs that started the musical spark inside of you!
