I can critique and help to improve live performance.

About Rob
I'm a professional bass player in Austin Texas, the Live Music Capital of the World. At one time or another I've played just about every style of music, and I have more than a decade of teaching experience. I love 'opening doors' for students, helping them understand how music works and how they can sound better than ever. I graduated from B.I.T. in Los Angeles and I have thousands of hours of teaching, gigging, and recording experience. I'll share that experience with you!

*** Lesson Details ***
I like to use real music to show how technical concepts work. Once I've gotten to know you and your musical goals and preferences, I'll point you towards the knowledge you need, and show you how that knowledge works in the music you like.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music room: recording equipment, bass, amp, chairs, music stands, additional seati
ng for parents.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I bring my bass, iPod, tuner, drum machine,manuscript paper,etc. The student needs to provide adequate space and amplification.

I have been studying bass playing techniques and music theory with Rob for several months now. Short story: he's great.

Rob's lesson format is pretty open. If you have specific questions/goals, Rob makes sure that they are addressed. He's been able to give me some great information on various techniques and styles, and I've picked up a good bit of general practical bass knowledge this way.

Rob is VERY knowledgeable about music theory, and its evolution over the centuries. That being said, discussions on music theory are always made relevant to bass playing. This makes learning the theory and patterns very practical, and for me, more approachable.

Thanks Rob!

I have been performing music most of my life & have acquired many tips & tricks along the way, from show choirs to progressive rock bands & back again.

About Alex
Hey, my name is Alex. I'm a multi-instrumentalist (guitar, bass, keyboards, voice, drums, flute, etc.), composer, performer, recording artist, arranger/orchestrator/transcriber, recording engineer/producer & music educator.

I graduated from the University of St. Thomas "Cum Laude" in 2011 with a Bachelor's Degree in Guitar Performance, with minors in Music Production & Composition. While attending St. Thomas I served as the Music Theory tutor, as well as the live sound/stage/light/recording technician for student & faculty recitals.

I have been playing professionally & teaching for over a decade. My passion for music is something that I love to share with anyone else who feels inclined to make music. My goal is to share the skills & knowledge I've acquired throughout my experiences with those willing to learn & dedicate themselves
to the craft of making music.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am experienced in most major genres of music: classical, jazz, blues, rock, funk, folk, metal, acoustic fingerstyle/slap, instrumental rock, "shred," pop, world music, electronica, etc. & feel comfortable conveying the techniques, approaches & idioms to a student by breaking them down into digestible components, while making these new ideas relatable to material they are already familiar with.

In the end, I want the student to learn what they're most interested in learning. I'm here to answer any questions they may have & with my experiences, I feel confident that I will be able to either answer these questions or point them in the right direction. Some topics covered:

Scales/modes
Ear training
Instrument-specific techniques (ie bending, tapping, sweep picking, etc.)
Songwriting & Composition
Arranging & Orchestrating
Sight-reading
Improvisation
Chordal theory & how to read charts
Practice routines & approaches
Instrument maintenance
Instrument-based gear (guitars, amplifiers, effects, picks, slides, capos, etc.)

The student will learn at the pace they set for themselves & can only get out of it the amount of effort they put forth. I expect my students to practice on a regular basis (however brief each session may be). Consistency is key for progress to be made, & if they hold up their end of the bargain, the payoffs will be quite substantial!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Practice amplifier, tuner, music stand(s), guitar picks & cables.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide guitar neck paper. I expect the students to have their own instrument & any materials they may need to achieve the goals they've set for themselves (such as a weekly notebook).

*** Specialties ***
Progressive rock, classic rock, blues, jazz, funk, disco, classical, acoustic fingerstyle/slap, flamenco guitar; music theory, sight-reading, composition, songwriting, film scoring, music production.

I took beginner's guitar lessons with Alex. He took into account what my playing goals were, stylewise and whatnot. He's super knowledgeable on musical subjects besides just guitar. I've come away feeling that I have good foundational knowledge to build upon as I progress in my playing. I had the five lesson package, which I felt suited my needs. Tip: If you do something like that, space out your lessons at least every other week, so that you have time to practice and grasp what you're learning. Be sure to ask questions if something is new to you, especially if you're a beginner. I highly recommend guitar lessons from Alex!

I teach piano performance, technique and skills

About Tracy
My name is Tracy. I am so excited for the chance to be working with you. Here is a little background on my musical training and experience.

I started taking piano lessons at the age of 12 from Karen Hudson, (a highly respected piano teacher in San Antonio), using the Suzuki Piano Method (an advanced Japanese curriculum). Although I started a little later than the average student, I discovered right away that I had a great love and passion for the instrument.
I joined my church praise and worship team when I was 15 and have been playing on praise and worship teams ever since. I have worked with beginners all the way to professional musicians and band leaders and have attended several music conferences (including Hillsong Conference in Sydney, Australia.)

My senior year of high school I studied under renowned Russian Concert Piani
st Anya Grockovski at the San Antonio School for Inquiry and Creativity. From there I studied with Elizabeth Gutierrez as a music student at University of Texas at San Antonio, and then received my bachelors of arts in Music Marketing. Throughout High School and College I performed in numerous recitals and local competitions.

While attending UTSA, I was the band leader for the UTSA Campus Crusade for Christ Praise and Worship team for 2 years.

During my music studies at UTSA, I was trained in classical music performance, history, theory and Jazz performance.

I have been teaching since the age of 15. I love teaching piano and music theory to students of all ages! I have taught private lessons and group lessons with students ranging from 3 to senior citizens. I have also been a certified Music Together teacher since 2011 (a music program for kids aged birth-5), and teach with the Treehouse Music Together center.

*** Lesson Details ***
Classical music and Music Theory are the main part of the curriculum I use to teach. I use different types of curriculum including the Music Tree, Alfred Methods, etc... based on students skill level and preferences.I do teach the Suzuki Method to older children and/or adults if it is a good match for the student.

I like to give students a well rounded repertoire so upon request, I teach contemporary music as well, this usually includes Disney, Pop, Christmas, Praise and Worship songs and anything else students want to learn.

I try to make sure my students are enjoying what they are learning and having fun while expanding their musical knowledge and becoming a more proficient musician.

*** Studio Equipment ***
There is an electric piano set up in a designated music room with a sitting area for parents

*** Specialties ***
I was instructed in the Suzuki Piano Method until I graduated high school. I used Suzuki exclusively for the first several years. Since 2002 I have also added Alfred's, Faber & Faber and other curriculum to match each students individual needs.

great teacher for children

My daughter has made such great progress with Tracy. She is a great teacher who is positive and encouraging. Well worth the drive. My daughter is only six years old and with only a handful a lessons she has learned many songs and a good foundation of music theory. I highly recommend Tracy for young students.

My 5 year old son had never taken piano lessons before but he has been drawn to Tracy and her teaching style like a moth to a light. She does an excellent job at keeping his wiggly body and active mind focused and engaged. It's amazing how much he retains from his lessons. Tracy also matched a lesson plan perfectly to his learning style - he's having fun and probably doesn't even realize how much he's learning. Music is such an important part of a child's education, and we are so glad to have found Tracy.

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.

* Finally, a comprehensive instrumental course for students of all ages and experience levels that includes:

- Information on brands, supplies, and guidance with professional organizations

- Weekly lessons to develop and improve skills with proper intonation, articulation, dynamics, rhythmic meters…and more!

- Music theory (includes music history topics) with emphasis on technology and composition

- Maintenance and repair tips

- Advanced techniques: altissimo range, ornamentation, improvising, circular breathing, etc.

- Chamber music (accompaniment) to prepare for public performances

About Neil
I am a music educator of 13 years: I have taught both middle school band and choir to at-risk youth, as well as elementary music at a private Christian academy. My principal instrument is the saxophone (which I began playing in 1990), and I play many other instruments. As for my formal education: I received the Bachelor of Music Education degree in 2005 from Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey; and the Master of Music Education degree from the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA, 2010).

*** Lesson Details ***
My goal is to create life-long musicians...
I focus on the needs and interests of my students, thereby representing all musical genres and including all cultures.
My lessons are structured into activities that incorporate various aspects of music appreciation:
Music theory, music history, music technology, perfor
mance practice, etc. (making such lessons comprehensive)

*** Studio Equipment ***
As a musician of 27 years, I believe it is the "musician that makes the instrument", and not the other way around. That is, I do not believe it is necessary to purchase the 'top' brand for your instrument in order to achieve the desired sound. Frequent practice builds skills and results in the desired tones people wish to hear.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I always bring my instrument, metronome, tuner, music stand and stand for my instrument, including lesson materials and supplies.

*** Specialties ***
All genres, all styles & all cultures! I teach students of all ages--mostly at my home studio, but I also travel to students' homes, churches, and, as an alternative during the Summer only, I am willing to meet with students in the Practice Rooms in the Fine Arts Building at UTSA.

I always encourage students to play in public, no matter the occasion or the pay. Live performance is exponentially helpful by putting your abilities to the test and exposing yourself as a musician. Networking with other young musicians and forming groups is a sure way to ensure long lasting passion for music, especially when playing in a live setting. It's never to early to start gigging!

About Michael
Hello! I'm Michael. Music has been 'my thing' since I found a guitar in my Mom's closet at age 9 and didn't move until figured out "Mary Had A Little Lamb". That's the curiosity I try to instill in my students! Although I started playing trumpet and guitar in elementary school, my music education at University of Texas in SA opened up musical doors I never knew existed! Currently I teach trumpet, guitar, piano, drums and saxophone, ages 6 to 45, as well as play trumpet around town when the sun goes down. I passionately emphasize music reading ability, improv techniques through jazz studies, and a solid music theory foundation- no matter what age you are!!!

LESSONS DETAILS
Every lesson, concepts are reviewed and emphasized, then we crawl forward through new music, discussing the technique and theory of every piece we play. I've accumul
ated an expansive library of teaching material to create a very diverse path when exploring the wonderful world of music. I always try to include a classical piece and a jazz piece in the repertoire. Popular music and original compositions are fun encouraged too!
Whatever your idea of music is, we will build on it, playing pieces you want to play!

THE INSTRUMENTS
A variety of instruments are at our disposal here in the studio, including...

Piano & electric keyboard, acoustic and electric guitars, trumpet & cornet, clarinet, flute, upright acoustic bass, 7-piece drum set & auxiliary percussion.

THE HOUSE
The house is very friendly and comfortable, great with children and families. Lots of natural light! There's a large front porch patio to relax on while you wait with a good book, or you can hang out inside with the siblings watching something on Netflix. I'll even give you the Wifi password ;)

I have 9 years of teaching experience, teaching all woodwind and brass instruments, as well as beginning piano. My ultimate goal as a teacher if for you to fall in love with music and be able to have fun playing the instrument and music style of your choice.

About Laurie
I have 9 years of teaching experience as a private teacher, a classroom music teacher, and a band director. I employ many different styles and methods while teaching, to ensure my students receive a well rounded music education, but also have fun. I love to use backing tracks, and I like to teach technique and important fundamentals through playing pieces of music in the styles my students love, while also introducing them to new styles and new pieces. I love music and what it does for the world, and I pass that love and passion on to my students. I am positive and encouraging, while still providing specific and structured feedback to students. I studied classical clarinet during my Bachelors of Music Education at the University of Illinois, taught as a high school band director, and went on to received a Master's in Music Education with
a jazz emphasis while playing jazz saxophone at Northwestern University. I have spent the last 4 years teaching at a British International School in China, and performing in orchestras, funk bands, and more around Beijing. This has given me the experience and knowledge base to teach students of all ages and backgrounds, as well as to teach many different instruments across a wide range of styles, including: clarinet, flute, saxophone, oboe, bassoon, trumpet, trombone, euphonium, tuba, beginning piano, and rock bands.
