Christopher is a great musician. His knowledge in music theory is simply outstanding, and his skill with the guitar is fascinating. Sometimes you've to just stay back, and wonder in amazement how beautifully his fingers traverse the fretboard at an amazing speed while being consistently accurate. He is also a fantastic teacher: always patient with students who doesn't quite have his tenacity with the instrument yet (like me, haha). He tries to figure out what your need is and how to achieve them accordingly. Another good thing is that, besides the scheduled lessons, he is reachable via emails and phones too if you're having any problem with a particular thing. He has also been very accommodating with the dates: whenever I had to make a sudden change to my scheduled lesson due to emergency, he gladly fixed another convenient date and time for me. All in all, you can't go wrong with Christopher as far as guitar lessons go. I highly recommend him as the go to person regardless of your skill level.

A friend of mine referred me to Ross for drum lessons for my 13 year old son about a year ago and we have never looked back! My son has some challenging behaviors and takes longer than typical kids to learn new things but he is totally rocking out with Ross. Ross is more than just a music teacher, his passion for music and its benefits is obvious as well as his patience and understanding. He has a natural ability to relate to the needs of each student and teach at their level while pushing them forward at the right pace. My son loves learning drums and I love watching his confidence grow. I’m just thankful that we found Ross…Also, his student showcases are a blast!

Excellent, compassionate teacher. Well-trained and talented instructor of AUTHENTIC African drumming. Her method is encouraging and totally without judgment. Whether you are a beginner, novist, or a professional drummer, Sherry will help you to find and achieve levels you never thought possible. Oh, did I mention that she traveled to Mali for graduate-level training by Mamady Keita ? ... and that she performed a Djembe solo for an entirely West African audience--it was magnificent! Sherry is an accomplished performer of the djembe and djun-djun drums, bout her passion a greatest contribution to the legacy of West African drumming is her unmatched teaching and training skills.

I'm very pleased that my nine year old daughter is enjoying her soon to be second year with Franklin Music Academy. Most of all I would like to thank JP for all of the encouragement and confidence he has given her. I appreciated all of the hard work he puts into making piano lessons fun and interesting for my daugther.

I've been taking drum lessons from John for a few years now and can't say enough good things about the experience. He's patient, kind, supportive and has brought things out in my playing that I never knew were possible.

My son took percussion lessons from David Nathan. My son describes him as a solid teacher with a good ear, patience, and good direction. As a parent, I appreciated David's communication -- he would send regular emails. I know he would do a regular showcase of all his students, which was also a lovely thing.

My son has been enjoying private lessons with Mr. Haun for two years. I believe this is beneficial for his band activity @ school. Also Mr. Haun works with my work schedule to accommodate my son's lesson!

David teaches my kindergartener with same sincerity as my six grader. Three lessons each and good progress at just the right speed. Each child sorrows needing more of him every day; so, he is our wonderful teacher for many future moons, God-willing.

I've worked with Ed on and off over the last few years. As a player, he is a total pro, able to deliver at a high level across many styles. What I really love about playing with Ed is that he is also a great person - always a positive attitude, punctual and prepared. Ed is my first call when I need a drummer, for both live and studio work. He has also given some drum lessons to my son, providing not just style and technique, but also some great philosophy and guidance about music in general.

Terry is a very kind, polite and professional musician. He arranged to come and meet my son for a lesson. I appreciated his candor and professionalism in letting us know that he would not be able to meet my son's particular lesson needs.

About

I look at getting you confident on the drums ASAP. I don't read or teach reading music per say. Although we will occasionally look at some drum notation, charts and rudiments, it's not a focal point, but more a tool to help explain a concept or idea. For more advanced players, I'm not going to tell you what you are doing is "right" or "wrong" and typically won't mess with your self-taught or learned technique unless I feel it will prevent injury or improve your playing. For the stronger players I will try to stump you with new concepts and styles you probably wouldn't have come in contact with playing in your rock band. These ideas will strengthen your overall playing and adaptability. My goal is to get you to a place where you can teach yourself.

About

I offer private drum and percussion lessons for all ages and levels of players. I have been a very active member of Austin's teaching, performing, and recording community for many years, including several years as assistant director/lead drum teacher at The School of Rock -- formerly Paul Green SOR. Along with performing with several notable artists from around Texas, I also have a very strong rudimental/marching drum corp-style background that enables me to teach aspiring students of school band programs. Thank you for your consideration.

About

Beginner, intermediate and advanced students are welcome. I have a studio in South Austin. Since the age of 15, I have been performing. I have played in rock, jazz, pop, Zydeco, cover, funk and experimental projects. As a top drummer for hire in town, I'm the guy you call on short notice when your drummer can't make it for some reason or quits. I also play in a classic rock band and in a variety band. I have extensive stage experience as well as studio experience. I am specifically interested in students who are prepared to take their abilities and stage dynamics to the next level. I teach from the perspective that some musicians have a lot to say (dynamics and phrasing) and some musicians have a large vocabulary (many chops). We will work on what you have to express and say and how to say it through the most passionate and powerful of instruments. Also, I have worked for a Fortune 500 company and have been in the business world for numerous years as a headhunter and consultant. You can rely on a conscientious and professional experience. I also have numerous years of experience as an adult educator and a coach. Rates are $35 per hour at my studio near Riverside Dr. and Pleasant Valley. I love drums, and I love teaching. Call me! Let's set your free first lesson.

About

I am a certified teacher to tutor science or math; guitar, bass, or drums; or pool/billiards or tennis any day of the week.
