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.

Guitar lessons at FGS are personalized to individual learning styles and musical preferences. Each lesson is a musical experience where students are engaged in rhythm, technique, theory, and the music that inspires them! The FGS curriculum operates around the belief that creativity is the pinnacle of education. Students are taught to remember, understand, and apply each musical concept that relates to their preferred genre. As this process takes place, students acquire mastery of the guitar and gain the ability to be creative in their artistry. Jake Farr, owner, has a music education degree and has been teaching private guitar lessons since 2006. He has also held teaching positions at Brandon Guitar Studio, The Underwood Center for the Arts, The Buddy Holly Center, Lubbock Christian University, and the Austin Independent School District. For a quality guitar education designed to fit your goals, call Jake today! $120= Four 30 minute lessons/month

I am a piano teacher based in Round Rock, Texas. I have 17 years experience teaching people of all ages, and I absolutely love what I do. My job is to help my students become musicians who can find a song they are interested in and play it independently. I instill a love of music and piano playing in my students that stays with them for a lifetime. Benefits to learning to play the piano include an increase in mathematical abilities and creativity, improvement of mood, and the feeling of accomplishment. Lessons with me are stress free, challenging, very affordable, and fun! Piano lessons should be something you look forward to each week, a time to relax, enjoy the beautiful music you are creating and feel accomplished.

I just started with Rob and would say that he has a great way of making the lessons thorough and fun. He's a wealth of knowledge and has a lot of patience. He took the time to meet me before we committed to lessons to show me his studio and answer questions. This helped me feel comfortable with the process. i'll add more as we get further down the road.

John is an excellent teacher. He has an incredible passion for his craft and is able to convey this in his teaching methods. When I started taking lessons 2 months ago, I had never played an instrument before and I knew nothing about music. John is intent on helping his students build a solid foundation through learning the fundamental drum rudiments and understanding how to read music. Additionally, he gives exercises to work on between lessons and posts videos of these exercises to Dropbox so they can be referenced while practicing. Because of this, I have been able to learn quickly and it seems like John is teaching me something new every time we get together. The lessons are a ton of fun and they fly by. I would highly recommend John as a teacher!

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.

I have recently moved to Austin. For the last 8 years, I have been traveling, performing, directing, arranging, and working as a musical director for Royal Caribbean. This experience has afforded me the option to perform with some of the industry's greatest performers and the challenge of having to do so in nearly every style of music. As I move into the Austin community, I look forward to not only teach trumpet, but to also pass along hard-learned life lessons about being a professional trumpet player. One of the statement I grew to hate was, "you can't make it in this business anymore." I even heard it from my teachers. I wish to pass along experience, optimism, technique and mostly the belief that you can make your dreams a reality.
