Introduction: We are The Academy for Arts & Education, located at 2200 FM 1092 Rd. Missouri City, TX 77459. We offer virtual as well as in person lessons. 7 teachers make up our boutique style academy. We are professional, and we are serious about what we do. We have had the fortunate opportunity to work with a wide range of age groups, abilities, and cultural backgrounds. Recitals two times per year and performance opportunities for seniors give our students a sense of pride and accomplishment. We teach piano, voice, drums/percussion, violin, and band instruments. To us, music performance is equally as important as teaching. This family of musicians perform together as well as teach. We play for wedding ceremonies with strings and other instruments, cocktails hour jazz sets, and just about any other setting you could imagine. So, feel free to schedule your free lesson/consultation.

Paul was extremely professional and very responsive! He immediately contacted me about what my event needed and offered precisely the music that was fitting for the occasion! He provided not only piano & saxophone music, but learned additional songs for my community’s faith based event! All the guests commented on how relaxing and beautiful the music was! Will definitely be hiring him again for a future event! Thank you sooo much!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I have a range of time slots to choose from: Weekday mornings, weekday afternoons, and weekday evenings. Your first lesson/consultation is free. There are 3 different sessions offered: 30 minutes ($30.00), 45 minutes ($40.00), and 60 minutes, ($50.00)

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    My process for working with a new student is: 1. I perform a short evaluation of the student's learning style and personality. 2. I get to know the student. 3. I structure instructions (within curriculum) to meet the needs of the student's learning style. 4. I help the student set goals . 5. I take the student through the learning process to reach those goals. 6. I help the student celebrate small successes along the way.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I began studying music at age 13. I studied piano at Xavier University of Louisiana. I also studied piano and composition with composer and university professor, Roger Dickerson. I have been working with students for over 20 years. I taught in Fort Bend ISD, Lamar CISD, and Kipp Academy. I also taught adult education at Leisure Learning Unlimited.
