About Kate
I graduated from UTSA in the Fall of 2008, with a Bachelor of Music with a Vocal and Piano Emphasis. I have been teaching private piano and voice for 11+ years. I am fun, energetic, and patient. It brings me such joy to be able to teach children something I am so passionate about!

*** Lesson Details ***
Students need to practice 15 minutes a day. They are required to complete everything that is assigned to them that week, and be prepared for their lessons for the following week. A beginner usually in 3-6 months should be familiar with reading the basic treble and bass clef staff, be familiar with dynamic markings, beginning to understand basic music theory, tempo and minimal sight reading. Voice students study basic vocal technique, and learning to sing properly.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I usually provide the books after the paren
ts have paid for them. They should have their own instrument to work with.

*** Specialties ***
I use the Alfred method for piano.

Within minutes, I could tell that she was a very haopy person and that I would have no problem talking with her. She also challenged me to sing outside my range. I felt unsure but she encouraged me and I did okay. I can't wait for my next lesson.

I have been a music teacher for 26 years. I have taught elementary music, secondary choir and college level music courses. I have performed in operas, musicals and plays in San Antonio and I have sung at Carnegie Hall in New York. I studied voice with Herald Stark and guitar with David Underwood. I have led a professional singing group and a professional dance troupe. I have composed choral music which has been performed in San Antonio and entered into international competitions. I have spent years learning techniques to help students sing in tune and learn how to read music. I have experience teaching students of all ages from 3 year olds to adults. I teach students from Northe
ast San Antonio, Selma, Schertz, Live Oak, Universal City, Cibolo, Bracken, Garden Ridge, Converse, Marion, Seguin and New Braunfels.

For my younger guitar students, I use the Progressive Guitar Method for Young Beginners series. This book includes a CD to help the student practice at home. For my older guitar students I use a progressive guitar curriculum of my own creation.

For my voice students I use Pathways of Song, Hall Johnson Spirituals, 24 Italian Songs and Arias, Alfred's Folk Songs for Solo Singers, Carl Fisher's The Young Singer series as well as song materials based upon the student's personal interests, such as arts songs and Broadway show tunes.

For my piano students I use the Piano Adventures series by Nancy and Randall Faber and the Alfred Piano Series. Music reading, ear training and theory is part of my instruction. With daily practice you will see a noticeable improvement in musicianship, aural skills and music-reading ability.

I am also an experienced tutor. I have worked with students of all ages and with various learning differences. I have tutored students in reading, writing, math, social studies, ESL and test preparation.

He's the best. Really easy going and nice guy. His wife even makes cookies for each lesson. As a beginner, Jim has streamlined and accelerated my learning ten fold since self teaching myself online. For references he gives you all the materials you need such as the music sheets he makes to form a lesson. They're very concise and easy to follow. I have bar chord sheet he made that's by far the best reference for those chords that I've seen.
It's really a fun experience and he takes joy in helping his students learn. Highly recommended.

*** Lesson Details ***
Classical technique is what I teach. Including breathing placement and musicianship. However that does not mean that I try to turn all my students into opera singers. The truth is you can utilize the classical technique in any genre of music. Trust me it will make a difference in your singing. I would be happy to discuss my methods in more detail. Thank you.

Its helpful if the student possesses a keyboard or piano but if not i can provide one.

Excellent instructor with an emphasis on proper breathing and technique. He is incredibly knowledgeable and conveys tips about vocal placement and breath control in a way that "clicks" with me. I'm an experienced classically trained singer who was looking for a professional to help me refine my instrument and correct some technique issues. I am thankful to have found this instructor. 5 stars!

About Alfredo
I studied classical percussion in college and then specialized on drums at the Drummers Collective in New York City. I have toured with bands and played many times in front of crowds of more than 25 000 people. I have TV experience as well. I also have worked as a session drummer on several records for big labels (BMG and Sony Music among them). I work as a producer and my approach to teaching comes from my love of Music in general. I have been a drums instructor for more than 30 years and my students always get the gigs. I speak English and Spanish. My teaching style is fun and has a very clear outline, remaining flexible within it. I keep learning and practicing every day, and am very open to having fun together while learning. If you practice, the results are shown on every lesson and you will really notice it!

*** Lesson Details *
**
We start by learning how to Play, reading is not the first approach, but will be learned around the 3rd month . Everyone can do it and if you feel you can't, I'll prove otherwise during the first lesson. Afterwards we practice simple techniques and start with simple independence exercises, which feel great. You will be playing a beat with simple independence the first time we try it, which can be during the first lesson and no longer than three lessons afterwards. As you progress with the independence in rock style, we will work in other styles like funk, jazz, Latin, odd meters and African and the main focus will be that you become a great drummer. Whether you are aiming to become a pro or playing as a hobby, you will find great value in these lessons.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have 11 drum sets, recording gear, guitar and bass amplifiers and a pa system.

*** Travel Equipment ***
His own set. I could also rent them a set if needed, but having their own set is better for me. Sometimes I rented a set to my students in order for them to decide if they wanted to buy one.

*** Specialties ***
I use the Drummers Collective approach. I teach styles such as rock, jazz, funk, Afro-Cuban, pop, Brazilian, etc...

I believe that everyone has that one thing that makes you truly special. I believe that I can accommodate your own learning style and have always had an easy time finding that in my clients. You are truly the one that makes this job something where it becomes a way of life to see you reach your potential in learning percussion, drum-set, or even marimba which I also have a good background in. I trust that you will put the same amount of effort that I will put in my lessons, because you wouldn't be reading this if you weren't. I have studied percussion for 17 years plus with many teachers and with Allis Gomez from San Antonio College.

About Jennifer
I have been a professional singer and actor for over 20 years. I earned my Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance from Northern Kentucky University, specializing in classical voice. Upon college graduation I headed to Los Angeles to pursue my career. I signed with top talent agency Abrams Artists, and studied with legendary Hollywood acting coach Janet Alhanti. While I worked as a successful actor in Los Angeles for many years, I continued to study singing with amazingly gifted teachers, and shifted my focus to musical theatre, my truest joy! I enjoyed performing in cabaret clubs all around the city, and worked on sharpening my on-stage performance skills. In the summer of 2006 I booked my dream role, and headed off to Europe to play the lead role of Sandy in the International tour of GREASE the musical.

In 2007 I relocated to bea
utiful Sonoma County wine country in Northern California. There, I began vocal coaching, and started my own voice studio, where I taught private voice lessons for 10 years. I also served as music director and vocal coach for The Healdsburg School, was head vocal coach for H-Town Youth Theatre and St. John’s Catholic School, and was the singing instructor for Julie Nation Modeling Academy. I signed with renowned talent agency Tonry Talent, in San Francisco, and I continue to have a fulfilling and successful career in singing, modeling, film, voiceover and stage. I currently serve as a performer and Associate Kids Camp Director for Transcendence Theatre Company’s Broadway Under the Stars Concert Series at Jack London State Park in Sonoma, CA. I am a proud member of SAG/Aftra and AEA.

My fundamental singing philosophies have come to me through the years because of the brilliant teachers I have studied with, along with my own research and discoveries through my own singing and teaching. I feel that each person is gifted with their own unique voice, and my desire is to craft each lesson with students to help them learn how to use their own instrument to their highest ability. My teaching includes learning about breath management, vocal technique, healthy singing, vocal agility, increasing vocal range, and much more! I want each student to experience JOY with singing, and I strive to make my teaching environment supportive and nurturing in all ways. I look forward to helping you reach your highest potential as a singer!
