I have been singing as long as I can remember and teaching for more than 20 years.

Because the voice is uniquely individual, my approach to each student is strictly based on their needs as a vocalist. I listen to each student and develop a program for development based on the needs I hear as well as the desires of the student.

Of course, good technique is universal and there are some exercised I use with all of my vocalists to develop good habits.

About Lisa
I have been a music teacher and private lesson instructor for the past 20 years. I have a bachelor of science degree in Music Education and hold a teaching certificate for all-level Music Education. In my private studio I have taught students from 3-70 and have enjoyed them all! In addition to teaching music I also serve as the Music Minister for my church. Students coming to me can expect a tremendous amount of experience as well as a committed, honest and caring teacher.

*** Lesson Details ***
For beginning piano students at the pre-reading level (ages 3-6ish) I like to use the Faber "My First Piano Adventure" series. I love that this series enforces solid technique in a fun, child-friendly way.

For older beginners and players with some piano I like the Alfred series, supplemented, of course, with songs/styles of music that i
nterest the student.

Guitar: I've found that guitar method books are nearly as diverse as the guitarists that play them! That being said, I typically start with the Essential Elements for guitar for a solid introduction to music reading and a touch of theory.

Depending on the style of play the guitarist is interested in I move on from there. Mel Bays Classical method is always a solid choice as is the Christopher Parkening Guitar method. I also have a few tab oriented books and some rock/blues oriented books.

For clarinet and oboe students I like to compliment what their band/orchestra director is using when possible. I also love the Klose method for clarinet. The Rubank is also a tried and true book I use. I've had a lot of success with these books.

Of course the best method books are for naught without adequate practice time! When theory and technique work get too dry it's always fun to throw in some fun selections to compliment the "work."

Voice students are a bit different in that I don't use a specific method to instruct. I have many books that I draw from when teaching voice due to the unique nature of the individual. Depending on the style of music, from classical to jazz/pop, I have music that will teach proper breath support, vowel placement and tone.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Home studio: converted dining room with 3 guitars, young percussion instruments, upright piano and f/w keyboard. Seating available for parents.
Music ministry at First Christian Church in Terrell. Access to choir room with upright piano. Seating available for parents.

*** Specialties ***
Degree in all-level music education with specialty in voice.

About Susan T.

We shall begin with developing strength in your diaphragm then diaphragmatic breathing and techniques (you will need to practice at home after lessons). Then on to studying from a combination of manuals while using your favorite songs to make improvements. I will teach you how to use a microphone once you show improvement.

Please read "About You" section to learn the recent student success stories.

About Susan B.
After 30+ years of professional musicianship spanning across two continents (North America and Europe) with original published songs available digitally (on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, etc.) and two CDs on the market (a third still in production) I retired from "performing" in 2010 and started teaching classical, blues, jazz and pop piano; piano/voice, classical guitar, pop and/or rock guitar/voice, songwriting and theory. My motto: From the movie, Beethoven Lives Upstairs ... "Great musicians need the spirit of a gypsy; the discipline of a soldier!"

I especially enjoy teaching families with multiple siblings (as young as four - degreed in Family and Child Development: Social Services and Early Childhood Education) and can get any combination of two or more people playing music together (please see reviews). Many of my current middle
school Takelessons students started with me when they were four and five and now perform regularly in student showcases, school talent shows and in church. I have helped five students gain entry into the Grand Prairie Fine Arts Academy.

If your young child is showing signs of high musical intelligence (sings a lot, keeps good rhythm, or is attracted to an instrument), I would be very interested in talking with you to get them a good start in musical training and education.

Lessons are recurring, once per week - it is extremely important to develop the brain, nervous system, fine motor skills simultaneously using repetitive movements, patterns, and momentum. I host annual student showcases at independent senior centers, most students grow and love these experiences … the people there are great and it helps build students’ confidence levels.

I wrote my first song at 17 and helped work my way through college playing my original music and covers as solo artist in coffee shops in Manhattan KS and at KSU’s student union. As songwriter and founding member of “Progressive Wood” (a KSU prominent band), we performed at campus parties, state fairs and festivals as I earned my bachelors degree.

Starting 2005, I worked many years as one of Arlington ISD's favored substitute teacher, teaching general elementary music classes, middle and high school orchestra, band, and choir. I was asked to create and teach a beginning songwriting class for elementary students and from the very first day had kids K-6 behaving in the palm of my hand. Some of those students eventually recorded their own original songs in professional studios. Current students are composing their own songs with plans to schedule recording sessions in professional grade studios here in DFW. One guitar student in the 5th grade is planning a small business playing classical guitar at weddings (first wedding performance coming up June 22).

If you already know an instrument and want to take combination lessons - Voice/Piano or Voice/Guitar and/or composition, or brush up on childhood learned skills, I am an motivator!, I LOVE teaching people how to recognize and use creative energy. NOTE After 30 singing lessons, one of my adult students signed with eight grammy-award winning LA music producer for his first EP - left a successful career in law and started his tour on the East Coast after releasing his first digital composition on CD. Another adult female student recently released her first EP in 2018!

If you are the creative type and wish to compose your own music or need help with production, I teach not only composition … also arranging, music production, notation, business organization and legal aspects of copyrights and international distribution (experienced paralegal in entertainment law). I also am the founder and owner of SBT Records, and Little Road Publishing Company.

My daughter has been under the wonderful care of Ms. Taylor for over 2 years now and she has learned and grown tremendously under her care. From not knowing how to read notes or any finger placements, to reading notes and switching things up ( different tempos) while playing the piano on her own.

Ms. Taylor pays attention to detail and is very easy going that makes it easy for my daughter to learn. She is very compassionate. She has also taught her breathing techniques along with voice training. She keeps her grounded and motivated. My daughter has a passion for music and is in the best possible hands. She is very flexible and accommodating!

Thank you so much for everything you do to help her flourish!!

We LOVE and APPRECIATE YOU!!

Susan is a excellent teacher, she has shown great patience and allows you to learn at your own pace. For an adult student with very little childhood training and having taken lessons once before as an adult she has done a masterful job learning what I want to learn and has been very open minded on which direction to go in as far as my lessons go. I am amazed that she has pulled some thoughts and ideas out of me that I didn't realize I had and has taught me patience in learning the piano.
If you are an adult student wanting to learn the piano or advance in piano Susan is the perfect teacher, she is flexible and takes the time to learn what your individual goals are in the piano. She has changed courses with my learning based on my interests, and for that I am thankful. If you are looking for a very talented music teacher (especially if you have done lessons before and have been thinking of giving it one last try) I would highly recommend Susan as the person to work with. 5 stars all the way!!

Plano, TX

Want to sing your favorite Broadway tunes? Learn to hit that high note thats giving you trouble? Just want to feel more comfortable speaking and singing in public? My approach to voice begins with the basics and is deeply rooted in ear training and music theory. I am classically trained and I work as a musical director in musical theatre. I do audition coaching and actor training as well.

About Anthony
I am a professional vocalist, instrumentalist ( guitar, mandolin, piano, bass, ukulele), actor, writer and string theorist with a degree in Theatre from Oklahoma State University. I sing, act and play instruments for professional theatres in the Dallas area and have music directed community and childrens productions. I am largely self taught and consider myself my own best student and once in college built a guitar completely out of materials found at home depot. I have also studied voice, piano and guitar with several industry professionals.

I am a treasure trove of information about instruments. Consultation is included in the price and this includes everything from selecting a new instruments to basic set up and repair.

I place a large emphasis on ear training, which helps you to hear the structure and flow of music. Ear trai
ning is imperative for more advanced students to learn before they can begin improvisation. Its like giving a man a fish vs teaching a man to fish. Its also a great transition into the theory part of your instrument specifically for kids who often pick up and latch on to the concept. Ear training properly though is not only a daily process but can be difficult for some so if you feel like this isn't for you that is okay because it all comes down to what you want.

My voice students will learn to relax into their singing and to strengthen their voice week to week. Each student receives a personalized plan of daily exercises based on their needs and weekly performance. I also offer audition coaching for those in the musical theatre community. For kids and beginners we start with basic breath control and diction. For more advanced students we work on improvisation

My instrumental students will begin by learning ear training and basic structure from there I make it about you and what you want to learn. I am a big believer in genre bending instruments. I for instance play jazz and blues mandolin. If you're wondering why you have never heard of this its because you can count the number of culturally relevant jazz and blues mandolinists on one hand. There are also reasonably few people who teach this as it is something so rarely done. If you have latched on to a particular genre of music I'd love to help you explore it.

Acting students are encouraged to dabble in all parts of theatre and film as many roles require you to be a jack of many trades. Character development and emoting convincingly is only part of the game.

Cancelation policy: 24 hour notice or in case of emergency with doctors note.

Pedro Tirado is a gifted, insightful voice teacher/coach. He knew exactly what was hindering my vocal development and how to correct it. His explanations were clear and on point. Within only a few lessons my voice was significantly healthier, it was bigger and more flexible. He got me to sing up to an E6, five notes I didn't know I had after a lifetime of choral singing, mostly as a soprano. Although I had taken voice lessons before, I made more progress in three months with Pedro Tirado than I made in an entire year with another teacher. If you want to uncover your voice's full potential, go to Pedro.

He will guide you and teach you what you need. The posture, the way you need to breath, the way you're supposed to "stretch" your voice, the exercises you need to practice and many more things. I started not knowing anything and singing horribly but he taught me that you need to trust in yourself and you need to let your voice just flow, don't hold it back. Believe it or not, your voice has a personality, that was something he always told me. Let him mold you and teach you what he knows. He's the best teacher ever. If you have the opportunity to take classes with him, I suggest you do so. You're gonna be surprised not only with him but with yourself. He's kind, humble, hardworking and a great person overall.

I am a professional vocalist who has been performing for many years. I have taught voice lessons for many years, and am a member of NATS. I have studied classically at UNT in Denton, Texas, and at New England Conservatory in Boston, Massachusetts. In addition, I have performed n rock, pop, R & B, and jazz groups all over the country. Many of my students have also pursued successful singing careers. Every voice is unique, and I include in lessons helping students to learn proper breathing techniques, vocal exercises that will enhance their voice, and work on material of all styles in order to improve their voices, and performance.

About Jamie Leigh
I am a professional vocalist and pianist. I perform and do studio work all over the country. I have studied music at North Texas State University (UNT), and at New England Conservatory in Boston. I am classically trained; however; my career has been made singing and playing comtemporary popular music. I also have professional theatre experience as well.

I have had the pleasure of teaching many students who have gone on to professional music careers. I am a very caring teacher, and will do my best to help a student become the best singer or player they can become. I am able to teach all styles of music. I am a very fun teacher; yet challenging teacher. I am encouraging, and I have years of training to share.

I have been performing in my band SHAZAM! as an encore favorite across the country. In 2012 I was a featured vocalist on Dymaxi
on Vehicle's CD....that recording won the coveted Artist In Music Award in Los Angeles. I have had a CORI Check as required by law to work with children. I am also a mother myself as well.

I tailor lessons based on the level, talent, skills, and areas needing work in the student's musical development process.I treat students as individuals...similar to a tutor or coaching relationship. Many students are naturally talented, and simply need more direction, and perhaps, technique, and basic music theory knowledge. In vocal study, proper breathing, vocal exercisers to improve singing and flexibility, and strength are part of lessons. In addition; I assist in choosing material, prepping for performances or auditions, and preserving and enhancing the natural voice of the student.

As a piano teacher; I can work with students at all levels as well. I am very good with beginners. I also have more to offer more advanced students in a concentration on technique, and add a music theory component to lessons as it helps them to become a better musician and instrumentalist. Thank you for your time!
