Irwin Witebsky is an exceptional piano teacher. Returning to piano lessons years after not taking due to family circumstances has brought me a deeper understanding of reading music , use of the pedal , hand and finger placement and applying correct timing . Due to the gentle yet proficient instruction received during each lesson leaves me motivated to continue playing. I am impressed with Irwin Witebsky punctuality and technique of teaching. When my lesson is over I often see a young 5 or 6 year old eagerly waiting for their lesson to begin. His professional experience in playing and teaching will definitely leave an impression on each student no matter their age. Outstanding instruction leads me to recommend this talented and gifted piano instructor!

Before starting guitar lessons, I did a thorough review and research of all the guitar instructors in the area. By far John is the best instructor out there. John is a top-notch teacher and is very energetic and passionate about the guitar and loves teaching this instrument to others. He is very well organized and systematic in his teaching approach. John's style of teaching enables students to improve their technique very quickly and to learn a wide variety of guitar theory. He is very approachable and friendly, while also bringing a very professional approach that he has honed over many years of teaching guitar. John is also very responsive via e-mail or phone. He takes the time to learn about each individual student. He is a great teacher both for adults or kids. John is obviously a very talented guitarist himself, and he teaches in a way that is easy to learn from. He is very friendly and encourages a very low pressure learning experience. His structured classes allow the student to obtain constant progress and to see a clear line of what specifically is needed to improve upon. He takes a professional yet fun approach to his lessons. John tailors each student’s learning in a way specific to each one, and his vast knowledge of multiple styles of teaching books and learning aids is fitted to each student as needed. It is definitely not a one lesson fits all approach for him. He will gauge you through your level of expertise and assess your short and long term goals, whether as a beginner or as an advanced player. John then creates a custom lesson plan for each student. I thoroughly enjoy every lesson and see definite and concrete results each week both in my playing ability and in my overall understanding of music. One of my goals, in addition to increasing my performance level, was to actually learn how to read the music. In less than a month, through John’s instruction and teaching, I was on my way to a firm understanding not only in my ability to read music but to play sight reading, something that once existed only as a dream. With John’s help my confidence in playing is at an all-time high, and I without question see myself becoming an excellent guitar player in time with his help. I strongly recommend John as an instructor to anyone at any level interested in becoming a great guitar player and learning more about guitar music theory. - RJW

We have just finished our 6th lesson with John. My 5 year old daughter is taking piano lessons and I am taking guitar lessons. John is always on time, is always prepared, and is always eager to teach. My 5 year old can barely contain her excitement when he comes over. I am amazed at how much she has learned at such a young age. John encourages family participation during her lessons which is something that I fully agree with. Music in our house is a family affair. He has an obvious compassion for teaching young children and it is very obvious with the method he uses to teach them. He makes music fun. I am a middle school teacher, and would highly recommend him as a music teacher with your children too. As an adult student in guitar, John is always listening to my wants and needs. He is teaching me with a style that will benefit my ultimate guitar playing goal, and addresses my learning style carefully. I would highly recommend him as a guitar teacher too.

My 6 year old son has been working with Mr. Nolan on on the electric guitar for a couple of months now. Mr Nolan is a very knowledgeable, caring, and patient teacher and my son is always excited to go to the lesson each week and even practice at home. I was hesitant to start my 6 year old on the guitar as I felt he might have been a bit young but I have been extremely happy with his progress. On a side note, Mr. Nolan is even letting me learn and play along using one of his guitars! This is my childhood dream so I am thrilled! If you are looking for guitar lessons, I would recommend Mr. Nolan with no hesitation.

Mrs. Moore is a wonderful instructor. She is very flexible, and patient. She provides more than piano lessons, she provides a little history behind what you are learning. She also makes sure you understand what you are playing. My daughter loves her time with Mrs. Moore.

I would like to send this letter in support of Tom Lopez and his music lessons through the Universal City Music Studio. My son Jacob Bissell has been a student of Tom's since his days in the band at Kitty Hawk Middle School. At that time, Thomas was teaching Jacob drum techniques to supplement the lessons at Kitty Hawk Middle School. Jacob ended up his Middle School tenure as an honored/awarded musician with a great foundation in music. Jacob moved on to Judson High School, and auditioned for the marching band. He won a spot on the Judson Drum Line as a bass player. He held this position for two years, even though he could have moved to "snare position" his second year, but stayed on bass to help the Director. Around this time, Jacob was starting guitar lessons with Mr. Lopez. After two years with the Varsity Judson High School Band, Drum Line, Jacob decided to take a break from the marching band. At this time, it was found that Youth Orchestras of San Antonio (YOSA) needed a percussionist. An audition was arrainged with YOSA, and Jacob was awarded a percussion seat with the Philharmonic Orchestra (YOSA's number one performing orchestra). He held this position with YOSA during his Junior and Senior years at Judson High School. His Senior year of high school, Jacob had to be in the music program to be eligible for YOSA, so he talked to the orchestra director at Judson HS. The Director needed a bass for the orchestra, so Jacob accepted the position. He started the semester in the Beginner Orchestra. With his excellent musicianship, he learned the instrument and was moved to the Honors Orchestra. He did receive honors for this position. All this time, Jacob had continued taking music lessons and having recitals with Thomas Lopez. Jacob had continuisly been a student of Tom's since middle school at Kitty Hawk. Now it was time to think of college. Jacob had thought that "Music Thearpy" was an area of study he wanted to pursue. Looking at the information from Texas colleges, only two in the state offered music therapy. One was in Houston, and the other was the University of the Incarnate Word, in San Antonio, Texas. After applying, and going through Music School auditions with the Director at Incarnate Word, he was awarded a Music School scholarship and an academic scholarship. With the substantial scholarship money, he accepted the spot on the Incarnate Word music school roster. I would like to congratulate Thomas Lopez for instilling in his student Jacob, the musicianship needed to advance to the level he has. He is active in the Incarnate Word Chorale, so he is learning about another instrument- his voice. Jacob is active in two bands- Disposable and 16 Psyche. As well as writing music, singing (fronting Disposable), he is currently teaching himself piano. I want to add links below to several of Jacob's performances. If the links get lost, you may find performances on YouTube by searching the names of the groups, and looking for "YOSA presents Carmina Burrana," where you'll see Jacob's senior slide on the screen behind the orchestra, at the beginning credits. While in YOSA, Jacob was with the first group to perform in the new Tobin Center, appearing twice about a month before Paul McCartney played the venue. Jacob has performed with nationally known artists while in the Youth Orchestras of San Antonio, and went on tour to Canada with the organization. Thanks again Thomas, for bringing out the best in your music students.

About

I am a music professional with a strong desire to bring music to individuals and the community. Many valuable principles are taught and reinforced through the study of music - hard work and perseverance to achieve goals, concentration to focus and steady one's nerves, and fortitude to cope with setbacks and accept direction. While the enjoyment of making music is indeed the greatest outcome of music studies, other valuable life skills are forged in the process. Students learn to stay calm under pressure, coordinate a myriad of mind and body processes, and importantly to persist in the face of challenges. Whether you are a seasoned musician, an adult beginner or considering lessons for your child, music is an enriching endeavor that is well worth the time and effort. Kendall Music Studios is here to make music happen!
