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.

My six year old daughter and I have been taking guitar lessons with Trey for about two weeks now. We are so happy and pleased choosing him to teach us. He is flexible with time and scheduling and will even go out of his way and meet you at Guitar Center to purchase a guitar. My daughter looks forward to guitar lessons every week and is so excited to learn more. Trey makes it fun to learn playing guitar for any age from my 6 year old to myself. I would recommend him to family and friends for sure.

Our 17-year old nephew is spending time with us this summer and we were lucky enough to find Trey to give him a few guitar lessons this week. He is an outstanding teacher, very patient and encouraging (not to mention talented). My nephew loved the time he spent with Trey. We highly recommend him!

My 10 year old was getting bored with his previous instructor's teaching methods and had been begging us to drop guitar lessons. We thought we would try a different instructor. We've had only one meeting, but I saw a light reappear in my son's eyes and he is excited to start lessons with Jon. The video lessons and use of newer computer technology and has my son excited and motivated to keep learning to play.

I took lessons with Jon in Spring of 2016. Jon is a masterful guitar player and I enjoyed learning guitar from him. Jon taught me the chords for "Simple Man", "Freebird", "Let it Be", "Wish you were here" and "Hotel California". I can play these songs now. He is a patient and a professional instructor and we always started our lessons on time. I recommend him.

Wow. What can I say? So glad we found Georgie on Thumbtack. My teenage son had found a passion for wanting to learn the guitar and had taken lessons from what you could say is a "teach them a few songs and keep them interested" approach. He came to me and said he really wasn't learning much and really wanted to learn more about the fundamentals of the guitar, build a better musical knowledge background and be taught how to read the music vs memorizing how to play a song (which was what he was getting from his former teacher and through YouTube). Found Thumbtack and hit the jackpot with Georgie. Wow! (did I already say that?) Not only very reasonably priced- less for an hour lesson than I paid for a far inferior 30 minute lesson- but what a teacher! He is just what Seth had been looking for in a guitar teacher. Georgie is very knowledgeable about this craft and about music, is a great guitarist, builds a strong foundation teaching (or reteaching!) you the chords, scales, etc the correct way. As a student, my son realized he had learned more in one or two lessons from Georgie than he had in his first year of lessons. If you really want to learn how to play the guitar the right way, want a great foundation to build on, are serious about practicing and learning, want an enthusiastic and encouraging master at the craft, you need look no further. If you want to just be able to impress your friends with a few songs and not much work- you can find that on YouTube. Thanks Georgie for sharing your gift as a musician and a teacher. Would highly recommend Georgie!

I contacted Georgie for guitar lessons. I was a beginner at the time with absolutely no experience with guitar. Georgie has been fantastic with me and my new music journey. He is super patient and he really makes class fun. Not to mention he is a total bad to the bone guitarist! Definitely worth looking into, best price and experience in Fort Worth!

I worked with Tracie while home this summer from college, and I'm so glad I did. Tracie will give you her honest opinion and genuinely wants her students to improve. She helped me break bad habits, showed me new techniques, helped me discover my own voice, as well as introduced me to new music! Tracie is professional, personable, and wonderful at what she does. I can't wait to take lessons with her again!

I have been taking voice lessons from Mrs. Petri for the last 9 years and there is no one better. Even in college, when I had other voice instructors, I would keep coming back to her. She really pushes you to be your best self and doesn't coddle you like other teachers tend to. Not only that, but she really cares about you as a person and as a professional. I could not recommend her more!

Mrs. Petri offers more than just voice lessons, she offers life lessons. If you stick to it she will change and motivate you beyond belief. Your work ethic will never be the same. She's also a lovely person.

We have enjoyed Vic's music for 23 years. When my son was around 8 years old we decided to have Vic give him guitar lessons to try and bring some of that magic home. He is now 16 and loves to entertain us on the back patio during family and friend gatherings. Vic is truly a professional with a plan. I'd recommend him to anyone with a desire to learn to play.

I took eight guitar lessons from Vic over a period of about 10 weeks. He was flexible with scheduling and made me as a beginner very comfortable. His method of teaching is very effective in helping you understand and learn how to play at all positions on the guitar. Vic helped me understand not only what I was doing but why.

Prior to dennis, i had never taken guitar lessons. Always tried to teach myself. I struggled since i had no structure, i would consistantly get lost, which would make me put the guitar down due to frustration. Deciding to hire dennis was a break thru for me, and honestly wish i would have looked into it much sooner. Not only has my skills progressed, which they due weekly at a much faster rate then when i was trying to learn on my own, but my confidence and motivatation has increased greatly. I look forward to meeting with dennis each week and building off of what he taught me the previous week. The amount of patience dennis has is great, and the way he explains different things so that i understand is awsome. Would definetly recommend dennis to anyone, whether they have just purchased their first guitar, or they have tried numerous times to teach themselves, or even if you have alot of the basics down, but looking to take your knowledge and playing to the next level.

Dennis has been an excellent teacher. He is clearly knowledgable about guitar playing and is an effective teacher for my learning style. My lessons have been fun as well as educational covering both necessary fundementals and fun stuff! He is very personal and welcoming. I take my lessons in his lovely home and am always made to feel comfortable. He has been very accomodating and understanding when I have had scheduling issues and he makes prompt return contact. I would recommend him as a teacher.

My son Adam takes piano classes for the school and needed more one on one private lessons for a special piece. One day I looked online and I found Liam Furdyna through Thumbtack. We requested to meet up with him and he responded right away within minutes! As parents we look for the best for our children and right away we knew Liam would be a great piano teacher for our son. Since then our son goes to him every Monday weekly for 45mins. He also offers 30 minutes available if needed. Liam is very accurate/specific about how he teaches and shows his work. Adam has participated in several recitals with Liam throughout the year and has done very well in teaching all his students their music piece. He himself plays the piano at the end after each recital appearance and it's unbelievable how and how fast he plays. We highly recommend Liam for piano lessons!

Richard is a very talented and a patient teacher. He teaches my 6 year old daughter in the comfort of our home and he is very regular. He follows a learning book and mixes his lessons to bring difficulty and technicality while keeping it interesting for my daughter. My daughter was difficult to work with at the beginning but he was able motivate her in every possible way. As a parent I make an effort to learn with my daughter so that when my daughter practices I am able to guide and correct her and Richard is very generous to take the time to give provide me concepts. I am extremely happy with Richard and his ability to teach children.

I've been taking lessons with Richard Stuart for just a little over six months now and all I can say is that he is an amazing instructor. He hasn't followed a set one size fits all script in his lessons but has instead worked with my musical interests and at my pace in a way that is truly valuable. He has also kept things fun, interesting, and engaging even at times when I've felt overwhelmed and discouraged. This is an instructor that is truly adaptable to his students and will make sure that they get the most out of their lessons. I would definitely recommend him to anybody that truly wants to unlock their musical potential.

Michael is quite proficient in both his own abilities on guitar and also his ability to teach. He is patient, and happy to answer all my questions which I appreciate as an intermediate-level guitarist. He was happy to tailor my lessons to specific areas that I already knew I wanted to address, as opposed to forcing me into a highly structured, pre-determined lesson plan, which again I appreciate. I highly recommend Michael for anyone looking to become a better guitar player and musician.

I've been taking lessons with Michael for a little over a month now, and he's been great. I can't speak to how the lessons work for beginners, but I've played guitar for about 15 years, and am a pretty good rhythm player wanting to be a really good lead player. He's had great exercises for me to work on, and I'm already showing improvement. He has a good mix of exercises and tough practicing with learning tunes to put the theory into practice.

Mike has been amazing! He's acquired great knowledge over the years and loves to share it with his students. I am currently learning music theory and he's made it fun and simple. In just a short month, I've learned about R, 3rd, and 5th, major/minor chords, and how to discover the key of a music piece just by listening to it. Again I say, this guy is truly amazing! I'm happy to have used thumbtack as a resource to find him. I feel his passion for music correlates with his teaching methods. Thanks for all you do Mike!

Both of my children have taken piano lessons from Marion Decell for years and loved her. She truly enjoys working with the kids! It's not just about the piano, but also about encouraging them as they are growing up and becoming young adults. Marion promotes responsibility in her students with reasonable practice times, expectations for the next lesson time and gentle accountability. Smiles were always involved, even when the kids may have been feeling frustrated with a piece of music. Marion has terrific patience, reliability and professionalism!

Moira is an exceptionally talented musician. I have taken voice lessons with her for just over 3 years. She has taken me from a shaky mezzo to a confident dramatic soprano. She specializes in "fixing" "broken" voices. Before lessons with Moira, I could not sing above the staff line. I now sing high-C. She is amazing! If you want to be the best singer you can be, take lessons with Moira! You won't be disappointed!

I would bring a laundry list of things for Nathaniel to cover in a lesson. He would search for music that would help address the technique, sound or rythem. This way I was almost always using music that I wanted to learn and play. He always asked for feedback which helped us both get the most out of our time. My playing, tone and musicality has moved to a whole new level. You will be fortunate to study with him.

I have always been slow when it comes to learning, and Zach was always patient with when it came to lessons. With that, Zach also taught me to go out of my comfort zone when it comes to music. I was an extreme metal head learning jazz, blues, classical, country and everything inbetween; and taking what I learned and incorporating it into my own music. Today I'm the guitarist for a death metal, and I have Zach to thank for it. Hire this man!

Zach taught me bass guitar for almost two years and it went extremely well. The lessons I received from him were fast paste whether it was jazz or funk the music I learned was new and awesome to me. We covered some very fundamental rules and jazz standards that helped take me to the next step. Seems like Zach knows a lot about what he's doing.

I am an adult student and have been taking piano lessons from Mark for a little over a year now. I took lessons as a child and then tried to pick it back up a few years ago but, while I wanted to learn to play, the lessons did not hold my interest. I decided to try again and came to Promethean. I realized then what a difference the right instructor makes. Mark's teaching is not "one size fits all". He makes the effort to get to know you and figures out how to challenge you in a way that helps you grow and feel proud of your accomplishments. I have learned so much in the past year and am really enjoying the experience.

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. The lessons are entertaining and you go away every week feeling motivated to perform your best even when you are practicing at home all by yourself.

About

The voice doesn't lie! In order to sing with beauty and ease, one must understand the mental, emotional and physical effects on the voice. Learning vocal technique is a process of asking questions and making discoveries. I have taught voice lessons in college and the university, high-school age and adults for 25 years. I enjoy helping people of all ages and abilities to discover the joy and freedom in their singing. I have a B.M., B.M.E. and M.M. in vocal music and vocal pedagogy. My own singing career has taken me to some major stages in the US and Western Europe. I would enjoy helping you find your most beautiful and flexible voice as well as the specific artistry used to sing the classics, foreign languages, arias, art songs, folk songs and Broadway.
