Private Piano Teacher

I have taught beginning piano to students ranging from five to 80 years old. For my younger students I use the Faber Piano Adventures series. For my adult pupils I use the Alfred Adult Beginner course.

About Tim (William)

My name is Tim and I live in Schertz, Texas. I hold a BM and a BME from UTSA and an MM from Texas State. I also studied drama for 3 years at Trinity University. I have been a music teacher for 29 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.

*** Lesson Details ***
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 art 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.

Private Piano Teacher

Learn how to read music, keyboard awareness, proper hand position, technique and musicality.

About Jessica

Jessica is a fun, patient, passionate teacher whose mission is to pass on the wonderful knowledge and love for music that was instilled in her onto a new group of eager young minds.
Jessica Winn has been studying and performing classical music for over 20 years. Her relationship with music started at age 9 with the Contra Costa Children's Choir and she has maintained her classical vocal studies ever since. Along with her vocal studies, Jessica studied classical piano privately with Keith Snell for 7 years, competing and achieving high marks in regional competitions. She went on to receive her Bachelor's degree in Music at Mannes College of Music in New York City and finished her education at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, where she received her Masters, receiving training in vocal pedagogy and physiology, as well as vocal pe

rformance. Jessica graduated from SFCM in 2009 and immediately began perusing both a teaching and performing career.
Jessica has maintained an active voice and piano studio since 2011, leading her students to high musical achievements in both fields, and is a Master Vocal coach at Acalanes High School. Other teaching experience includes Musical Theater Camp Director for the Heads Up Program at Head Royce in Oakland and Village Center for the Arts, giving private lessons, leading In-School Outreach Programs throughout the Bay Area, and heading their Musical Theater program.
Jessica is an active performer in the Bay Area as well, performing with Opera San Jose, Phenix Opera, Berkeley Chamber Opera, Verismo Opera, West Edge Opera and Marin Baroque. Jessica has also been employed as a performer on the east coast, making her professional debut with the Hartford Symphony Orchestra in 2011 and with The Manhattan Opera Studio.

*** Lesson Details ***
In my lessons, I feel it is important for my students to have fun and to and enjoy the learning process. However I believe in order for both student and teacher to get the most out of the lesson, practicing at home is extremely important and I expect my students to do so. I will always send them home with a goal or assignment that should be reached or completed by the next lesson to the best of the students ability.

For my voice students, we always begin with breath. Proper breathing is the foundation for all good singing. Then we move on to warming up both the voice and the body. During warm-ups, we will focus technical concepts such as breath control and support, vowel placement, and optimum vocal production. In most lessons (time permitting) we will work through a piece of music, one of their choosing or, if needed, I will recommend a piece. We finish each lesson with a review of the concepts we discussed during the lesson and practice goals for the week.
For my piano students, I begin with finger placement and keyboard awareness. Depending on the students age and level, we will use both a music book and a music theory book (for very young students, I will hold off on the music theory and focus mostly on finger placement and keyboard awareness). Each week, I will assign two pieces of music and pages in the music theory book (again depending upon student's age and level). Students are expected to prepare the assignments by practicing at home and have them ready at the next lesson.

Communication is something very important to me as a teacher. I want my students to feel comfortable expressing their needs and/or concerns, musically or otherwise and hope they would appreciate me, as the teacher, to do the same.

*** Specialties ***
Classical voice is definitely my specialty. I believe good classical technique is the basis for all good singing and can be applied to ALL musical genres.

Patient and encouraging

I'm always impressed with how Jessica is patient with our 7 year old daughter and still is able to draw her out and motivate her when she is tired from school. Jessica always finds creative ways to be inspirational. Both my husband and I drive 15 miles to be able to have Jessica teach our little girl. We think she is worth it. She has been flexible and always tried her best to work within our schedule and has even driven out to our house to cover a lesson when things didn't work out in the schedule.

Wonderful teacher

Jessica is teaching piano and voice to my 10 year daughter, and I am so impressed with her skills as a teacher. She is patient, encouraging, and inspiring, and her love for both music and teaching is apparent. She is also extremely knowledgeable about music theory and uses a teaching method that's very effective and gets students actually playing music right away, without shortchanging their long term development as musicians. Jessica is a rare find, plus she comes to our house for lessons!

Bgcheck Background Checked


Private Piano Teacher

I teach beginner level piano only. And I teach very well with the little ones. We have lots and lots of fun on piano with books from Faber and Bastien. We explore the piano sounds, highs and lows, and find all the C's across the vast piano keyboard. We look for lots of interesting things the keyboard can do. I truly enjoy my little ones who take beginner piano with me. Learning piano young really helps to branch over into other instruments later in middle school and high school. I encourage all young children to start on piano first before seeking other instruments. A year of piano in a child's life is a lifetime of music education for the rest of the growing years!

About Clare

My training started when I was very young, age 7, with piano lessons. Since then, I have been playing music my whole life, and I love it! I received my Bachelor's in Music Performance 2001, and I received my Master's in Music Education in 2018. I am currently looking for students for my private studio for ages 5 - 75, violin, viola, cello, and beginner piano!

I take very young students, ages 5 -7, on violin only, and I would love to get more of the little ones interested in music! Lessons are a great "mommy and me time", a great way to spend time with your child! I have found lots of success with this age group, by using a curriculum that I have developed based on the Suzuki and Pascale method for kinder violin. Although I am not Suzuki certified, I use concepts and materials taken from the master teacher, Suzuki as well as Guillam

ian technique developed for your children through the Pascale Method. From studying his philosophy and principals through research, I have found Suzuki's method to be a very holistic and "easy-to-understand" for young ages.

For adult students, I have found success teaching a curriculum that just lets you play music and develop a love for your instrument. I mainly teach adults using lots of music from pop tunes, holiday music, fiddle and Americana music. My curriculum for adults is more about making music and less about playing scales and etudes, although focus on technique is integrated within the type of music books we use.

I also teach high school, middle school and elementary school students, all instruments, violin, viola, and cello, with a classic approach.
Students excel at a very high level with training in scales, etudes, standard repertoire, and school orchestra music. This group will be asked to study music with the intention of performing at 2 recitals per year, as well as attendance at their school orchestra programs, solo and ensemble competition, and Texas UIL events. Please inquire about training for this age group in person.

*** Lesson Details ***
Beginner lessons are great fun! Watch how the instrument turns into clay that molds to your hand, your musical talent. I love to see the amazement in the student when they realize playing a musical instrument is not as difficult as it may look. Each subsequent lesson is a building process, building upon the foundation from the previous lesson. It is imperative that students practice! Practice whenever you get a chance, even a little bit goes a long way. Pick up the violin for ten minutes while you wait for the meal to cook in the evening or waiting for the laundry to finish. Then, find some time to sit quietly in a comfortable space and focus just on the tone and quality of your playing.

*** Studio Equipment ***
My home studio.

*** Specialties ***
There is a winter recital and a spring recital held each year to teach performing technique and showcasing talent. This is always great fun and very rewarding! Performing is a learned skill and every opportunity is provided to teach performing with success!
Plus, I'm really excited about my adult students, who are "up and coming" artists! I offer an adult ensemble for those who want to play for the sake of playing a musical instrument with others! Please inquire about the adult group, even if you have just a little bit of interest in learning the fantastic violin, viola, cello, or piano! Go for it! It is great fun!

Private Piano Teacher

When it comes to piano, there is no genre that I don't play or teach. I love jazz, classical, hip hop, R&B, pop, rock, electronic, etc. It's all music to me and I see no need in drawing lines.

About Mesrop

I am a music lover. I love anything and everything that is music. It has been one of the most consistent things in my life since I was a child, and there's nothing that makes me happier than making that a reality for someone else.

I've spent a lot of time studying with different musicians, such as Tigran Hamasyan, Ben Wendel, Ari Hoenig, Adam Benjamin, Josh Nelson, Vardan Ovsepian, and many other amazing musicians. I've also spent a lot of time studying different genres of music, which is why I'm capable of teaching almost any style of music.

I believe in designing lessons around each student's goals and needs, so every student gets a personally tailored lesson plan that will help excel them into being an amazing musician. I believe that great music teachers leave lasting impressions on their students. I wish to impart on my studen

ts the same lessons and experiences that have influenced me throughout my journey.

I have been wanting to learn piano for some time, and was recommended to Mesrop by a friend. He has been very patient with my pace of learning, which isn't always the fastest, and introduced concepts in a really logical and digestible way. Great guy and teacher, highly recommend!

I've always enjoyed playing guitar and bass, but the added element of piano was something that seemed so daunting I convinced myself to let it go. Mesrop was able to break it down so simply for me from the start, and I'm extremely thankful for his patience and focus throughout lessons. Along the way, I picked up more on theory and am now more comfortably able to transcribe as well. I think he's a tremendous musician but an equally excellent teacher.

I was struggling with my Music Appreciation class and I really needed extra practice. Mesrop was really patient with me, and helped me throughout the semester- even at inconvenient times of the day. Passed with flying colors! Thank you!

Our beginner and intermediate piano courses are designed to help you develop your creativity. In our beginner course, we focus on teaching you chords and basic chord theory. We also introduce reading standard music notation. Our intermediate course takes you from your basic chord knowledge and extends that to inversions and 7th chords and extensions. Both courses focus on Harmony putting together chord progressions that are fun easy and sound good.

About Luis

Hello, My Name is Luis I have been playing the guitar for some time now as a hobby. In 2017 I launched my new website TritoneMusic.net providing pre-owned guitars, lessons, and merchandise. I found teaching to be one of the most rewarding contributions I can make to an individual.
I will travel in some cases to your lessons but prefer teaching at my studio we offer a clean and smoke-free environment. Our studio is equipped with several resource books, audio, and online applications to provide lessons with a modern approach. We offer lessons for guitar, acoustic and electric, bass guitar, and keyboard. With my teachings, you will learn music through some of the proven methods taught at Berklee School Of Music. As well as concepts that I have found to have students play music and have fun quickly. The instrument can be overwhelming s

ometimes but with the good guidance of an instructor, you can truly begin to enjoy your instrument and all it has to offer. Visit me at TritoneMusic.net for more information. Until then " Keep The Dream Alive "

About Eric

MUSIC!
I think music is the most beautiful thing in the world, so lets take time to learn and play music together.
I have been playing the drums for over sixteen years, and been in over fifteen bands in the course of that time. I have a degree in Music from the Berklee College of Music were I studied music theory and focused on Music Production and Engineering. I have been playing Piano, Bass, and Guitar for about ten years in addition to the drums, and have been recorded in sessions on each. I have a deep passion for synthesizers and electronic music, so lets make some bleeps and bloops together.

I am extremely kind, friendly, and funny so lessons with me are very relaxed and have an easy to learn environment. However I am very passionate about teaching to fit student needs; so if a student likes deadlines and homework, if that is w

hat will help them learn the best, then that is how I will teach.
Lets make some sweet music together!!

I have been playing music since I was 3 years old and have been teaching for the last 5 years. I set up every lesson plan to match what the student would like to learn as well as making sure to meet the parents goals and expectations. I work with all ages and all levels. I also work very well with those that have special needs such as Autism. Every lesson is engaging and exciting, it is never a dull moment.

About April

I picked up music when I was very young and have never looked back. I started with the piano and then moved on to the violin, of which I competed regularly in up until high school. In high school I switched the viola and found it to me even more amazing. During high school I competed again in music between schools, the San Diego Youth Orchestra. I currently work with several students with special needs such as Autism and other Neurological delays. My son is Autistic and music was a great way for him to express himself. I found that the other children I work with on the spectrum have more abilities to express themselves through music then with words. I also work with students that are not yet comfortable with themselves and getting them to breath and enjoy the music helps bring them out of their shells.

I regularly find myself jamming o

ut with another music instructor every chance we get. Music is a great relief and enjoyment that I want to share with as many people as I can. I am currently in college getting my Bachelors degree in History with a minor in Music.

About Karen

I am a classically trained pianist and certified elementary school teacher. I graduated from Oakland University with a Bachelors of Music in Piano Performance and Bachelor of Arts in Linguistics..

I believe that every learning experience provides students an opportunity to not only learn a hard skill, like piano and math, but also to learn the soft skills such as time management, discipline and motivation.

My students can expect to improve week to week in their piano or math classes. My goal is not just to teach you how to play piano or to do math. I would like to guide you through the journey of learning and help you explore all the interesting things in music and math.

I teach piano students of all different ages and experience levels. I studied classical piano for 16 years. I can teach students to read music, improve aural sk

ills and pursue classical excellence. I can also help students to prepare for exams and competition.

I am also an elementary school math tutor specialized in the Texas curriculum. I have taught 5th grade for 2 years, and near 90% of my students passed Math STAAR test despite the fact that the school average was in the 50% range. 90% of my students made growth when I was their Math teacher at school. I can tailor our lessons to meet your needs and prepare you for middle school.

Your growth is my source of happiness. Hire me today to embark this wonderful journey!

Becca is a thoughtful and patient piano teacher who was able to take my children and address their different capabilities quite effe

Although the kids, a boy and a girl, were receiving beginner lessons, at one point my oldest needed help with some AP level music theory as well, and Becca was able to help and clarify key concepts for him. We were impressed with her knowledge.

Becca was always punctual and used the lesson time focusing on the work, with very little time wasted. Whenever it was necessary, she would follow up or keep us informed by email or texts. We always felt she approached her work very diligently while remaining both pleasant and fun for the kids.

If you are considering giving your children music lessons, I would not hesitate to recommend Becca."
