Tim K.

Schertz, TX

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 26 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 Anton
io 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 Northeast 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 arts 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.

Through online instruction, I am available around the clock and around the globe for tutoring and music lessons.

Doing so has given her the opportunity to teach voice to people of all talent levels and all walks of life.

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 t

Depending on your goals or time line I am pretty easy going. After 3-6 months you can expect to learn good vocal technique, performance guidelines and the confidence to perform anywhere.

I am also excited to work with your pageant needs and I am very familiar with the Miss America system.

keyboard, spare room or living room, seating for parents, access to backing tracks

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide an IPod speakers.

I specialize in performance for competitions. I can put together the whole package from helping choose music and costumes along with dance moves and perfecting your vocal technique. I can even make costumes. If you are wanting to compete in pageants or talent competitions I can help you reach your highest potential.

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

Robin M.

San Antonio, TX

About Robin

I am an enthusiastic teacher who focuses on helping my students master the basics. I obtained a double degree in music and music education from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where I studied piano with Clement C. Petrillo. I furthered my education with a master's degree in music education from U.T.S.A.. My students will benefit from my knowledge of repertoire and technique to achieve their goals. I strive to find music my students will want to play that is accessible, but will also stretch their abilities. I have taught in both the public and private schools for over
thirty-five years and I know how important it is for students to feel both comfortable and challenged.

*** Lesson Details ***
I strive to maintain a comfortable, but professional, atmosphere in my home studio. I use the Robert Pace piano series as a base curriculum, but include other method books when supplements are needed. Beginners can expect to be playing with both hands, using basic chords to harmonize known tunes, and playing in three keys, C,F,and G, within three to six months. More advanced students can expect similar rates of progress depending on their musical goals and level of commitment.

*** Specialties ***
Kodaly method as applied to piano

I can highly recommend Hayes as an instructor for beginning students. He has a great personality, really connects with kids, and is very enthusiastic about music and teaching. He is very patient, explains things clearly to my son, and always teaches in a professional manner. My son has taken lessons for 6 months and we are really happy with Hayes' lessons.

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.

Clare M.

Converse, TX

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 will receive a Master's in Music Education in 2016. I am currently looking to start my private studio for ages 5 - 75, in string instruments violin, viola, cello, and beginner piano!

For the very young student, ages 5 -7, violin or piano is preferred, and I would love to get more of the little ones interested in music! The lessons are also a great "mommy and me time" format, a great way to spend ti
me with your child! I have found lots of success with this age group, by using a curriculum that I have developed which is based on the Suzuki method mixed in with classical training and fiddle training. Although I am not Suzuki certified, I use concepts and materials taken from this master teacher. From studying his philosophy and principals through research, I have found the Suzuki method as a very holistic and "easy-to-understand" teaching method for young ages.

For adult students, I have found success in 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 middle school and elementary school students all instruments, violin, viola, and cello.
Students excel at a very high level with my training. This group will be asked to study music in the classical training method with scales, etudes, and standard classical repertoire, and help with their school orchestra music. 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 ***
I also hold a yearly spring recital to allow my students to perform, all ages included. This is always great fun and very rewarding! Plus, I'm really excited about my adult students, who are "up and coming" artists! I'm looking to start an adult ensemble for a separate recital to showcase their hard work and enjoyment of playing for the sake of playing a musical instrument! 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! It is great fun!

If you're someone who is new to music and looking for the right teacher, give Clare a call.

I've recently had the pleasure of taking violin lessons with Clare for eight months. I am an adult violin student and before I took lessons from Clare I had virtually zero previous musical training. Clare was the perfect teacher for me. She kept me interested and motivated to learn. Her lessons were well thought-out, well taught and, just as importantly, they were just plain fun. Because of Clare I feel like I have an excellent foundation from which to continue my learning. If I wasn't moving away because of a new job I would definitely still be taking lessons from her.

As an adult, I was kind of nervous to start learning a musical instrument, especially one as tricky as the violin. Clare helped me immensely. She's a wonderful teacher.
