After reading the reviews I decided to hire Scott. I was 100% satisfied. He arrived EXACTLY on time. he tuned my piano beautifully. Mind you my piano hadn't been tuned since the early 80's. Once complete he played my favorite songs on the piano. He is an amazing pianist. I wish he lived closer so I could hear him all the time. He was pleasant to chat with. He educated us on the inner workings of the piano and left his CD with us. I would gladly refer him to anyone. He was professional and perfect with his work. Thank you Scott!!

I hired Trey to provide guitar lessons as I was teaching myself for the past couple years & had run into a plateau of not really being able to improve past playing a few chords. Trey has an incredible way of teaching as he really knows his stuff & can read people quite well. I appreciate how he takes the time to get to know you as a person & as a musician. After my first lesson, I felt improvement immediately and am eager to continue to better skills. The only 'could be better' is he makes it a point to explain the 'why' as to what you're doing. It's perfect for beginners & I think this is incredibly necessary however for me - I need more assistance in the instruction & walking through the exercises - which he has made a wonderful adjustment to working with me the way I need to be taught. So even the only 1 possible place of improvement for this amazing musician and teacher has already been fixed/improved via my lesson #2. Aside: I have a plethora of family & friends who are musicians who have tried to 'teach me' in the past and it never really clicked. Trey is beyond phenomenal as he not only knows his craft of being a well-rounded musician, but also a people-person & wonderful teacher. Not everyone is meant to be a teacher but I honestly feel like I struck gold with Trey.

Trey is a complete professional. I have been impressed with his knowledge and talent for music and guitar and he exudes this in all areas of his life. He is extremely professional and keeps his personal life completely seperate from his life in this field which many cannot do. I would recommend him to anyone who has a teen and older wanting to learn the guitar, as well as younger kids which he's fantastic with. My daughter is almost 9 and he's a real treasure in her eyes and she is excited to get to learn from him and he makes her understand the guitar on her level not an adult level and that was very impressive. Top of the field for this area for sure.

Trey is a talented guitar player who knows how to break it down into achievable steps. He's been flexible about working around my schedule, but most important he makes the process fun and connects what I'm learning to my kind of music and the musicians I follow.

In one lesson, Vic has taught me things about guitar and music in general that I hadn't learned in the 22 years that I've been dabbling with guitar. I can tell that I will become a much better guitar player in a much shorter amount of time under his direction. And truly know what I'm doing! Not just memorized songs. He's obviously very knowledgeable, sets clear expectations, and explains things in a way that are very easy to understand. Wish I'd found him years ago. Don't be like me and waste so much time trusting yourself and YouTube to teach you. Nothing holds a candle to face to face instruction and feedback. Hire him! Be willing to put in effort and practice what he teaches you.

I'm so glad I found a guitar teacher like Vic. I have always been interested in learning to play guitar and wanted the best instruction possible. With only a few lessons, I feel that I've grasped concepts of music theory and already become a better player. He's patient, kind, and a very skilled musician. I couldn't have asked for a better instructor. I completely recommend working with him!

I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you for setting me up with Hubert Pralitz and James Michael Williams to play at our wedding back in June in McKinney. They did a fantastic job! For many years I dreamed of having live classical music playing at my ceremony and that was a detail I did not want to pass up on. It was something I had to have and these two delivered and made my dream come alive in more ways than one. You have no idea. They have no idea. All of my guests have commented on how beautifully they both played. The icing on the moment was when they played while my friend sang The Prayer. I cannot convey how much that song means to me and it was a detail that I had to make happen. And boy did it happen! It was truly beautiful! As I watch the video it amazes me that they never rehearsed together yet they all meshed so beautifully as if they had done this many times before. That is a sign of truly talented musicians. My only regret is that I did not get to personally meet Hubert and James after our ceremony therefore I did not get to personally thank them from the bottom of my heart for sharing their talent with us. As you can imagine, after the ceremony things moved very quickly and we were whisked here and whisked there. Before I knew it, they had left and I did not get a chance to speak with them both. If you could do me a huge favor, please let them know how wonderful they were, how much this all meant to me and that I thank you them very much. Feel free to share this email as well. By the way, my friend Desiree had nothing but wonderful things to say about Hubert and James and she was delighted to work with them.

I cannot say enough about this performer! I am an activity director at an independent retirement community and my residents were amazed by Damon's performance. His outstanding vocals (great range) and his piano accompaniment (Thiago) blew us away with their improvisation and stage presence. They were fun to watch (they were playful, but also knew their stuff). Damon actual is a classically trained vocalist and also did some opera for us. He was flexible with the set list and sang tunes that were relatable to the audience. He is a triple threat most definitely and we're hoping to have him back soon!

Damon performed at my party in Trinity Groves recently. He and his band were on time, brought their own equipment and were set up before my guests arrived. His vocals were amazing and the band - all consummate professionals. It was a great night - they played longer than expected - which was great and his playlist was perfect for my audience. You can't go wrong with Damon he is a pleasure to work with and a gifted artist.

Richard is a practicing musician as well as a piano teacher. This is important to me because he continues to learn therefore, he fully understands the roll of a learner. He is versatile with a wide variety of musical genre. Richard helps me by pointing out small discrete nuances that make the difference between playing the piano and playing it well. Additionally, he is willing help students by text or phone during the week when they have questions about the music. He encourages students to compose their own music, as well. Concomitantly, he enjoys his student's and celebrates progress. I highly recommend Richard as a personable and knowledgable piano teacher.

We selected Richard to teach piano to our teenage son, Mason. He has done an amazing job. Mason could already read music since he's in choir, but he had never played an instrument. In just a few months, Mason is playing with both hands and is learning to improvise. Richard teaches him theory and the basics of different styles like rock, jazz and classical. Mason's favorite thing about his lessons is that Richard makes them interesting. I had my doubts that Mason would stick with piano. I think he is successful because of Richard's style and personality.

Mr. Stuart is an excellent professional piano teacher for any age. As an adult learner, I find working with him to be an enjoyable experience every time. His patience knows no boundary. I learn both the most important theoretical side, as well as the practical side of piano playing. I will recommend Mr. Stuart to any adults who wish to learn how to play the piano.

My daughter had private lessons in vocal music with Ms. Stephanie Derrick for almost a year. The experience was absolutely rewarding and far exceeded our expectations. The excellent instruction she received prepared her to get accepted into a performing arts academy! Ms. Stephanie is a well educated, accomplished and highly trained musician not to mention, very professional and personable. My daughter enjoyed going for her lessons as Ms. Stephanie always made it fun and not feel like work. I would highly recommend her teaching instruction to anyone looking to get a solid foundation in musical principles or advance to the next level in performing. Ms. Derrick is the one who can get you there! We look forward to the opportunity to train with her again in the near future.

From the age of 10, I have always wanted to learn how to play the piano. As a mom, I offered piano classes to both of my daughters. My youngest took piano for years with Stephanie at Heavenly Sounds Studio. When she reached an advanced level playing classical piano, Stephanie accommodated her by providing another instructor at that level. As an adult and Also now a grandmother, I am a student of Stephanie's at Heavenly Sounds Studio and I am already playing c chords and f chords after only four months of 30-minute, weekly lessons. Stephanie is patient and very professional. Her talent and love for teaching music shines through with each lesson! I am enjoying every minute of the learning experience. Stephanie is an awesome piano teacher!

I first contacted Mark after seeing an online advertisement for piano lessons in the Addison area. I mentioned to him that I was interested in learning piano and had absolutely no knowledge of piano, although I did have a background in music as a vocalist and trombonist for a band in college. He cheerfully followed up with me and had me come in to the piano gallery for a preview lesson, introducing me to the basics and making recommendations on keyboards and music. After only a few months of lessons I was on my way to a newly discovered passion. Mark has been instrumental in advancing my musical abilities and has been extremely flexible in scheduling lessons, as well as very adaptable to my abilities.

Mark is really talented at his craft. By my second lesson, I was playing piano with both hands. The book he uses teaches you how to play by learning the chords rather than disecting the sheet music to see each and every single note (learning the classical way can be quite daunting and frustrating).I'm already learning my second piece of music in only 3 lessons!! As I do have a great musical foundation, this may come a little easier to me than for those who've never read or learned to sight read music at a fast pace, but Mark is a great teacher. He is able to respond to my questions via texts and email pretty quickly so that I may resume practice when I do happen to get stuck. Thank you Mark!!!

To any music lover and student of music who's looking to learn how to play guitar the right way, DFW Rock Guitar Academy is your destination! Jon is an enthusiastic guitar professional who can help you achieve all of your goals playing guitar. His passion for playing is contagious and he possesses all the knowledge and skills of a great player and an extraordinary teacher. He knows how to make you feel comfortable and is in no way intimidating. He's got a great personality and can adapt his instruction to suit the needs of a seasoned guitar veteran to someone who is picking up a guitar for the first time. Being a beginner myself, Jon made the process very easy for me to follow and provided me with the encouragement and positive reinforcement that I needed to get past the challenges I had. He sets high expectations and, if you put in the practice, you will surpass any of the goals you have for yourself. I went from not knowing any basic notes to being able to play some of my favorite songs in no time. Seeing the results of your hard work pay off is a great motivator and confidence booster. If your looking to maximize your potential playing guitar, Jon Chorba is the man to see!

Jon is a very patient guitar teacher. Our son, Nathanael is 13 and has been taking guitar lessons for five years and he has been through four guitar teachers. Jon has been able to take him to the next level. He is doing more than just learning how to play a song or two. He is learning to understand music with his guitar and technique when playing. Working with Jon has not only helped Nathanael excel as a guitar player but also in band as a clarinet player in middle school. Jon's studio is comfortable for his students and guests. He is always in a cheerful mood when he is teaching and we are always made to feel welcome. We appreciate what Jon has done for our son because music has helped him excel as a student, a musician, and as a person. We would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for an instructor.

Prior to scheduling Camden we received excellent communication. This included discussing such topics as: sets, breaks, types of music we wanted preformed even due to the type of event (Gallery Night) taking place as well as how we may have liked him to be dressed. Ever the professional there was not an item that was not covered pro-actively from his end. As soon as this warm and engaging young man impeccably dressed arrived, immediately we knew we had made the right decision to hire Camden. His musical talent was such...we had people coming to our event thinking we had pre-recorded music playing. Only to quickly be amazed he was indeed playing! Camden was even drawing people from the street he is that talented. To say he made our event "is an under statement". He also, helped calm our nerves as well. We went from being stressed, before the event, to actually enjoying ourselves because we could listen to him play. Camden conducted himself at our event as a true professional, always being gracious and polite. He played music that crossed multiple generations that had mass appeal. Through out the evening we were getting complements. Even today, weeks after the event people are commenting how much they enjoyed his playing that evening, along with how much they enjoyed watching him play. These complements have included those from other professional musicians . We look forward to having the opportunity to work with Camden in the future ourselves. When able to provide a referral for a musical talent...Camden's name is sure to be given.

Senior Process Engineer at Finisar Corp I have been a guitar student of Mr. Menger’s for 13+ years and I can tell you this guy is amazing and great at what he does. He is very organized, but will tailor your guitar class to your specific needs. I was an absolute beginner with no previous musical experience in 1998 when I started taking private lessons, but I knew what I wanted from the class before I started lessons, and Chris has helped me achieve that. He can teach you how to play music from any genre (jazz, pop, rock, Christian, etc.).

I have been taking acoustic guitar lessons on a weekly basis from Mark for several years. As a working student in my twenties, Mark has successfully transitioned the style and structure of my lessons to my practice schedule. As my schedule has shifted, I can honestly say that the more aspects of the program you are able to take part in, the faster you will achieve results. Overall, I am very pleased with my progress and growth and highly recommend Promethean Studios for music lessons in the Dallas area.

Mark is an extremely talented musician and exceptionally gifted instructor. He is patient, but still motivates his students to progress in their craft. He encourages his students to step out of their comfort zones with semi-annual recitals in order to make them better musicians.
