I have been gigging, both classically and in jazz, in the greater DFW Metroplex for about 9 years. I attended high school close by, and I am the only two-time 6A All-State tenor trombonist in my city's history. I have completed two years at the University of North Texas, and have been teaching for approximately two years. I consistently double between tenor & bass trombone, having a great deal of experience in both instruments, in both classical and jazz settings. Outside of trombone, I also play trumpet/cornet, tuba, vocals, guitar, bass, and piano. I am an avid rock/metal listener, and compose my own music, mainly fusing metal and jazz. Because of this, I feel this makes me an extremely diverse instrumentalist. I have studied with such influential figures as Tony Baker (UNT, Dallas Opera Orchestra), Steve Menard (UNT, Baton Rouge Symphony Orchestra), Dennis Bubert (UT Arlington, Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra), and more.

About Daniel

I began playing in 6th grade. My dad is a guitarist/vocalist/flautist (he gigs in the south DFW area) and brought me up in a very musical household. Since then, I have played with groups such as Scott & Steve, Big Gus & Swampadelic, the Pecos River Brass Big Band, and some of UNT's top ensembles,

I teach Voice from the perspective of a modern musician and songwriter. I want to make sure you are relaxed and having fun in our lessons and pursuing the style of music that resonates with you. In voice lessons with me, I will help to coach you through techniques to improve your vocal tone, range and agility. We will learn about proper breath control, healthy vocal technique, and how to correct various vocal pitfalls that might be holding you back. We will do this through the application of vocal exercises and by working our way through the individual needs of our chosen songs. My lessons are driven by my students taste in music rather than my own, so we will always be singing the songs that you love!

About Loralee

She enrolled in flute lessons at the age of 4, giving her solid roots in music theory and an appreciation for classical music. Her flute lessons later led her to take part in marching band and numerous musical ensemb

I'll be honest. I randomly chose an instructor for my 10 year old voice lessons. So pleased! She keeps in contact when there are issues with a lesson. Very flexible when it comes to platforms. Encourages and teaches my beginner in all the areas shes unfamiliar with. Super duper!

15 years ago, I started learning the piano and began my life-long pursuit of music. This pursuit has led me in a wide variety of directions. Today, I am currently a doctoral student at Wheaton Graduate School and hope to teach others the joy of playing the piano in my free time.

I have a passion for a wide variety of styles of music. For several years, I played professionally for weddings, shows, and musicals. I have led worship for churches in Michigan and Connecticut. At Yale, I was president of an organization called Yale Musical Cure, in which I played piano in hospitals, hospices, and charity concerts. While at Yale, I also studied theory, piano, sight-singing, and composition.

My teaching style varies from student to student. Music is a wonderfully diverse subject and every student has his own aspirations. I will do my best to cater each lesson to the student's goals and interests whether that is classical piano method, rock, jazz, folk, country, pop or anything in ...

Whether you're an actor, a singer, a teacher, a lawyer, or someone who makes sales presentations, a strong, confident, powerful voice and breath support can make all the difference!
We will use a deep breath connection, well supported sound and tone adjustments to make the most of your speaking voice, as well as stage presence and confidence coachings to help get over any anxiety related to public speaking (Or singing!). Finally, with a combination of prepared remarks and the background knowledge to support improvisation, anyone can be a scintillating public speaker!

***NOTE***
*This listing is for Voice in the context of "Speech" rather than "Singing". Please see my listings for Singing/Jazz Voice/Broadway singing etc for singing lessons!

Julia is an amazing piano teacher who is always more than accommodating with her schedule. I love the way she teaches and she always uses great analogies to help me understand the lesson better. I am an adult who has never played piano and she has really made the learning experience fun for me. I look forward to continuing my lessons with her. Highly recommend!!

"Sue was a great teacher, even though I only studied with her for a little more than a year. I think I was right up there with one of her favorite "hopeless causes." I started lesson with Sue when I was 65 years old, with absolutely no music background. I so regret that I didn't find Sue and undertake flute when I was much younger. She tried, and was pretty patient, but I think I was pretty hopeless."

In the Pits: How to Succeed as an Orchestral Pianist

Being a piano player may seem like a very solitary way to go about learning an instrument. As a piano student, you may yearn to make music with others, and if you're naturally drawn toward group music making, it may be that you already study an orchestral instrument, or sing with a choir. You may also have extended your piano training to accompany some of your friends for concerts or exams, or explored the wide variety of chamber music repertoire available involving the piano. However, had you c …
