Kate W. San Antonio, TX

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 ...

Felipe G. San Antonio, TX

About Felipe

Hello and thank you for viewing my profile. My name is Felipe Garcia and I am a self-taught music teacher. I began teaching music in 2010 and have loved it ever since. I believe learning to play music can be fun and easy, and I work hard to make sure your experience with music is one that will inspire you to keep playing for the rest of your life, for as Friedrich Nietzsche said, “without music, life would be a mistake.” My experience with music began long ago when I begged my parents to buy me a drumset and they finally gave in and bought me one when I was 14. Prior to that, I had no real experience with music except as a listener. I taught myself how to play by playing along with CDs of my favorite bands and eventually I felt like the drums wasn't enough, so I talked my parents into ...

Felipe has been great. I am learning a challenging new instrument - a 6-string banjo (aka a Banjitar) - which is a banjo/guitar blend. In less than a month I am feeling more confident and comfortable with the instrument. I am looking forward to learning more!

Felipe has been a fantastic instructor! My son is 4, nearing 5, and like most his age, has a limited attention span. Felipe has been able to keep him engaged and has been extremely flexible and easy to work with. He has introduced my son to not only drums, but also any other instrument he shows an interest in. I highly recommend him.

I'm a mid 40's guy who's wanted to play guitar since I was a kid. After a failed attempt in my teens, I hadn't revisited it (unless air-guitar counts) until this year. Fortunately for me, through Take Lessons, I found Rick. He is so very patient, friendly and flexible. The one thing I most enjoy about our lessons is that it's like visiting with a friend for an hour each week - whether we talk about music theory, new guitars or just about our lives, he always is engaged and accessible.

I can't say enough about Rick, he is a very knowledgeable musician, he genuinely cares that you reach your goal and is a really, really pleasant person. If your dream is just to play some of your favorite songs, or to go on to be a professional musician - Rick is definitely who I would recommend.

First rate instructor - fabulous

I'm a 50 something music student who loves guitar but has no particular talent. Rick has been patient with me and his lessons have improved my playing after a short time. I'm playing songs that I would otherwise never attempt.
Whitney V. San Antonio, TX

About Whitney

Whitney started singing professionally at the age of 14 with Six Flags Theme Parks. Since then she has been in Branson, Mo and traveled the world singing with Royal Caribbean, Holland America, Norwegian and Celebrity cruise lines. Doing so has given her the opportunity to teach voice to people of all talent levels and all walks of life. She now resides in San Antonio, Texas where she performs at and teaches vocal for Six Flags Fiesta Texas. *** Lesson Details *** A lesson with me is much more than working on your vocal ability. We are going to pick the perfect vocal selection for you and then work on your entire performance quality.

Lovely lady! She has been so helpful ever since I signed up for lessons with her! I've never taken voice lessons before so she has been showing me the ropes. I have an audition coming up pretty soon and working with Whitney has definitely calmed the nerves a bit, she helped me pick out a couple songs and now I feel like I have a good chance of landing the part! Thank you miss Whitney! <3

I've played sax for 20 years, bass for 15, and taught many students and performed with a variety of acts.

I enjoyed taking lessons with Hayes. He is a very motivated professional with the desire in driving his student into achieving his/her goal. He is patient at teaching, and listens intently to the special needs of his students making sure that those needs are addressed and taken cared off.
If there is any Saxophone instructor out there that I would recommend, it will be Hayes.

I have been taking my daughter Summer to Hayes home for several months and I can see her improvement as time goes by. He is very patient and makes her feel relaxed. Summer asks for certain songs she wants to learn and he does his best to find the music. He is a good listener and has well-thought suggestions to help her play better. Summer is 12 yrs. old and a beginner but she is doing well. I would recommend him to any prospective student..
Andrew F. San Antonio, TX

About Andrew

I have experience tutoring students as well as working with people individually and in groups, as an undergrad intern, a cognitive skills trainer, and a counseling student. As an undergrad intern, I worked with elementary school children as a tutor and a mentor. As a counseling student, I have worked with various populations, from children to adults to older adults in hospice care, as well as individuals suffering from a mental illness. Also, I teach a beginner ukulele class at a community education center. This diversity has given me an all around kind of perspective when it comes to working with individuals and has especially helped me further develop my approach. My approach is one that is peculiar to each of my students. As an auto-didactic learner, I believe that everyone ...
