My main goal as a teacher is to help my student realize their full potential and talent as a musician. I firmly believe that every single child has the ability to succeed at learning a musical instrument. With patience, open-mindedness, humor and love, a good teacher can help his/her students tap into their musical voices. With practice and patience, we can develop a solid foundation and work towards learning music.

I believe strongly in teaching what the student loves, so I am more than happy to work with my students on many styles of music, ranging from classical to musical theater to pop songs to bluegrass tunes. Positivity and kindness are second nature to me, and I strive to always create a fun and creative learning environment. I look forward to embarking on a musical journey with you or your child!

I teach basic through intermediate violin using the Essential Elements repertoire and my own personalized string exercises. Group lessons are available but I do not teach Suzuki. THE 45 MINUTE DURATION IS FOR GROUP LESSONS ONLY. For the specific times and days for group lessons please contact me first.

About Kyle
Hello potential students! I have a B.A. in instrumental music education and composition. I have taught private lessons for over 12 years. Teaching private music lessons is my primary job, so I have much experience and wisdom compared to teachers who teach "on the side." Students of all ages stay with me a long time because I am very flexible in my teaching and know how to interact with many personalities and learning styles, producing great results and progress. My specialties are piano, woodwinds, and music technology (i.e. recording and production).

Kyle is a great piano teacher! He is very patient with my 12-year old son. Just yesterday he referred to him as “fun Kyle” because he teaches him small songs on the side that he can show friends and family or are for upcoming holidays. He’s always punctual and respectful of our family and home. I’m grateful to have found him!

Kyle has given me contra bass, aka upright bass,weekly lessons from August 2015 through May 2016. I have never played a string instrument prior to this, although I do play piano and have played the flute, bagpipes, and piccolo over the years. I did not need education in reading music.

Kyle was able to take me from sounding like a lower octave version of Jack Benny (a mid-20th century comedian famous for his howlingly horrid violin playing) to a level where I know how to hold the instrument and the bow, the fingerings, bowing technique, and how to get a very respectable sound from the instrument.

He also installed the strings when I received the new instrument, found a manufacturing flaw in the bridge height that the manufacturer subsequently paid to repair, and diagnosed a resonance issue with the instrument that was corrected with a balance weight on the string below the bridge.

I have a big experience teaching students all levels and ages. My goal is to keep the joy of music making for each and every student, but also to make sure you learn and advance after each lesson. I would happily work with you on the music you want combining it with the specific violin techniques you need to have in order to play the instrument well.

About Kseniya
I have been teaching privately all levels ,from young children to beginner adults, for 10 years. Also, I teach piano for beginner and intermediate levels.
I find great joy in getting to know each student and always create individually tailored lessons according to your needs and goals. I conduct my lessons in a friendly environment but my goal is that after each lesson student improves and learns something new.
AVAILABILITY: The calendar here is not up-to-date. Please send me a message what days/times work best for you and I'll try to accommodate. Thanks!

She is really patient and fun to be around. Great environment for anyone of any age.

Burleson, TX

Learning a musical instrument should be fun, exciting, and most importantly pain-free.

About Chaul
I have been playing the violin for over 24 years. I like to teach beginning, intermediate, and advanced students regardless of their age. I would prefer beginners to take at least one year of piano lessons prior to learning how to the play the violin. This way students can transfer basic music knowledge into violin playing, especially in the field of reading and learning new music. My goal is to help music lovers learn how to teach themselves one day when a music teacher is no longer available.

I started teaching in 2011 while I was completing the Master of Music degree at Rice University. As I finished my Doctor of Musical Arts degree in December 2017, I decided to build and expand my own studio in Burleson, TX.

I also tutor beginning, intermediate, and advanced Chinese and have always loved Chinese literature.

Thank you Chaul for a great lesson and also for being so patient with me when my computer didn't log into the session right away. I enjoyed my first lesson and am excited to have such a fabulous teacher that sent me material and information to prepare for my first session. I feel confident that I will be able to progress and I know that I will enjoy learning with you. I'm looking forward to my next lesson.

With my guidance and practice, you will set realistic goals for yourself and be able to accomplish learning any piece of music your heart desires. Whether you want to learn a specific piece to perform, improve your skills, or continue your musical journey, I have the materials to help you. Just send me a message of your purpose of learning, and I will create tailored lessons for your needs.

Having been professionally trained to teach classical Suzuki violin lessons, I gear individual lessons towards improving technique. I'll give practice 'homework' every week which you'll play for me the following week. Think of it as building a lego structure: we start with t
he fundamental pieces and eventually put them all together to form the finished product. For more advanced students, I work on developing musicality and expression in playing.

I started taking lessons since I was 5 years old, and learned classical music using the Suzuki method myself, so I will incorporate in my teaching the necessary pieces to learn specific techniques. There are a number of techniques you must learn in order to play well and once you learn them, you can expand your musical repertoire immensely. I teach all ages and levels, starting children at age 3. Children ages 3-5 can take lessons with a parent participating at all times. Children ages 6+ can take lessons on their own.

I specificaly teach mariachi music but I also have knowledge of other genres of music. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. Not only will you be playing/singing songs in no time, but you will be building a strong foundation of note reading, music theory, ear training, sight reading, technique, and more. I believe learining music should be a joyful experience and one that will be a positive change in your life. I want my students to reach their musical potential and aspirations while having a wonderful time!

I can teach students to read music and pursue a career in mariachi or classical music. I can also teach students how to play any of the mariachi instruments (violin, trumpet, guitarron, vihuela, guitar) and teach them how to sing, as well.

As a professional mariachi player, I play every weekend during the evenings and nights and sometimes travel to different places around the United States to perform fo
r big artists.

I teach a variety of levels, beginners, intermediate, and advanced students and cater my lessons to their needs and specific goals that they have set for themselves.

5 Maintenance Tips for Violin Bows
All musical instruments require attention and maintenance. When it comes to the violin, however, it is easy to forget that the bow needs as much care as the instrument itself. After all, the way you treat your violin bows will affect the way the violin sounds. If too much resin builds up on the hairs, for example, the sound will come out wrong. While it may not be as costly to repair or replace violin bows, why waste money when it’s easy to keep your violin bows in good working condition? B
