Michael is a great instructor, I can tell. He definitely knows what he's talking about when it comes to music theory and learning your way around the fretboard. In just one hour of being instructed by him, I learned more information than I have in my 8 years of self-teaching! I highly recommend this instructor, and I would set him up with anybody who's interested in learning about the guitar! Go to this gentleman!
Only had a few lessons, but going great so far.
Michelle is awesome she has really helped me in every aspect as an artist. Her way of explaining music theory is very understandable. She has helped me with my breathing techniques, my vocals and my song writing. She has really gone above and beyond for me! If your interested in singing lessons Michelle is definitely they one to go to!
My son loves his piano lessons!
I have been working now with Pete on progressing my piano skills. I greatly appreciate his work and patience with me as I try to break old habits. I'd recommend Pete and his skills to anyone looking for Piano lessons; new or old.
Mr. Cornish is simply the best music teacher! He is a caring and focused teacher whiling helping the student rise to their fullest potential! He teaches various genres from classical, pop, jazz and spiritual. He also teaches sight reading and playing and music theory. He is a leader in the Texas Music Association and he creates unique opportunities for students to have fun and learn!
I've been taking lessons at Promethean Studios for over a year. Having played the piano for several years during my childhood, I'd been away from it for close to 15 years, prior to resuming lessons late in 2011. I can say that I am thoroughly pleased with my experience thus far. My instructor (and studio owner) Mark Black, is very knowledgable and competent, and a highly-skilled instructor. My knowledge of music theory has grown exponentially and my playing abilities have strengthened. Mr. Black's methods allow for a student to learn and implement what has been learn, all while playing music the student enjoys--be it classical, country, rock, jazz, or any other genre. I would highly recommend Promethean Studios to anyone.
Zach was my sons bass instructor for ~3 years. His impeccable methods and music theory set the strong foundation for my son. He is the funky bass man!

Ms Boyd is above her class. Professional, knowledgeable, skilled informative. She is firm yet lovingly. Ms Sue found my daughter at a very bad place, contemplating dropping piano all together. But due to skillfullness and concern for her student, coupled with concerns and compassion. My daughter is back in the game. And right now playing at the highest level she has ever been. She has restored the ambition and excitement into piano lessons. Sue has taught my daughter to venture out and make piano piers personal. Words cannot explain but Sue has changed my daughters destiny through personalized piano lessons!! She is very punctual and keeps the student informed at all times of any tweaks or schedule changes. I would choose Ms Boyd in a heartbeat!!! We love her very very much!!!
Jacqueline is bar none the best music teacher I have worked with. She’s pleasant, listens, and delightfully teaches with passion and excellence! I highly recommended her.
My 9 year old is currently taking piano lessons with DaCat Music and we could not be any happier! Cathy works great with my daughter and keeps music exciting. I would highly recommend DaCat Music!!!
My son, Eric has been taking lessons from Mariah for the last two years. He had previous classical piano lessons, but wanted to learn Jazz piano. In just a few lessons she taught him enough to pass an audition for Jazz piano at Booker T Washington HS for the Performing Arts. He is presently taking vocal lessons and has taught him ways to increase his vocal range as in how to access the high register of his chest range without straining. I would highly recommend her to someone that is looking for an excellent vocal coach.
Andrew is awesome. He's very skilled and knowledgeable, and his teaching is style is great. He focuses on my goals and what I like to play instead of just telling me what exercises to play. He can even explain music theory in a way that makes sense. He really motivates me to do my best. To top it all off, he's very nice and I'm very happy to be working with him.
My brother and I have been taking piano lessons with Dina for the last 9 years. We have both become musically certified. I have toured the States and China performing because of her and it has been an incredible source of income for me. You will laugh and have a blast with Dina and she will train you at the same time. I went to another teacher before and feel extremely lucky to have found Dina. We stayed with piano because of the way she teaches. She also has many forms of methods which quickly improves a students performing abilities. I'd give this lady 100% She is truly one of a kind.
i took lessons from kenneth for several years, from middle school until i graduated from high school. i enjoyed and always looked forward to my lesson each week. he was always encouraging and exposed me to new music and musical ideas/techniques and was, in effect, my mentor for those years. i greatly enjoyed learning from him during those years and have always recommended him to friends and anyone who's inquired about suggestions on music lessons.
We hired Anthony to teach our 11 yr old daughter how to play the guitar. This is her first instrument. Anthony was a pure delight to work with, was always on time and sometimes even stayed a little over to make sure the lesson(s) were taught. He even helped us find a GOOD guitar for our daughter. Our daughter looked forward to each lesson with Anthony. He even broadened his lessons to include vocal coaching as well. I would highly recommend Anthony for anyone needing a music or vocal coach.
Chad McCutchen is an excellent drum instructor. Not all good musicians are good at teaching but Chad is gifted in both areas. Our daughter was 16 when she started music lessons with Chad. He always welcomed me, as a parent, to sit in and observe their lessons. At our first meeting Chad was very good to ask questions, listen and assess her abilities. He then designed a learning plan based on our collective goals. After each lesson our daughter left feeling encouraged, challenged and excited to try new things! We especially appreciate Chad’s flexibility. Halfway through the semester, our daughter had a shoulder injury that made it difficult to practice drums. Chad was very understanding and able to insert a few guitar lessons while her shoulder got better. Chad is a humble, creative, highly skilled and yet challenging instructor. We (parent and student) would highly recommend his services!
Hi, my name is Caleb and I'm a vocal performance graduate from Delta State University and a vocal performance graduate student pursuing my master's at University of North Texas. During my years of study I have taught a wide variety of skill levels including opera, musical theatre, pop, folk, rock, and sacred —which has led me to be a versatile singer/teacher while still providing sufficient instruction for each individual student. Also, during my years study I have worked with great professionals such as Kumiko Shimizu, Elvia Puccinelli, Susan Youens, Roy Howat, Tom Cipullo, Ryland Angel, Liza Stepanova, and I currently study under the infamous Richard Croft. Congratulations on taking an interest to further your musicianship. The hourly rate IS negotiable, but will include instruction in reading music, singing with proper technique, aural skills for intonation improvement, and the list goes on and on. I'm a versatile teacher with much experience in performing and teaching almost every genre of music. This will allow you to run the show as far as which direction you want to pursue as a performer. I'm available to drive to you, but the cost of the lesson will go up if this is the case. However, taking voice lessons will ONLY improve your sound as a singer, and if we agree to work together, I'm positive you'll notice results in no time. If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact me.
Our teachers are what make us special!
