Guitar lessons with Noel through Reverb, fantastic! Super pleased:)
Chris is an awesome drum instructor. As a drummer myself, I can attest to the fact that he knows his stuff. He instructed my son, and was thorough, and professional. He was on time, and would even go long if necessary. He is great with a 7 yr old kid, and able to get the best out of someone with that attention span! We plan to have him teach again when our schedule permits.
I have my son Diego taking drum lessons his first time and Mr. Bartlet is been such an amazing teacher. He is very patieby and smart I do highly recommend him.
Sean is an excellent and highly skilled recording engineer. There was absolutely zero time wasted. In first session, we took some time to understand what my goals were. I had no expectation of recording at the first meeting. Within two hours of showing up, my first demo was recorded with live drum and bass tracks added. He had great ideas for the arrangement. Looking forward to using South Texas Piano services in near future!
I'm very pleased that my nine year old daughter is enjoying her soon to be second year with Franklin Music Academy. Most of all I would like to thank JP for all of the encouragement and confidence he has given her. I appreciated all of the hard work he puts into making piano lessons fun and interesting for my daugther.
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.
So far, and I haven't started my first lesson yet, they are very easy to work with and very flexible with my schedule.
Omg, it was my son, Ezekiel's, first lesson and we were both quite surprised at how well he did. Jesse is great, very patient and easy to work with. I could tell my son was comfortable with Jesse which made it a huge success. Look forward to going next week and so on. I can learn from this too. Proud mom, Regina
As an older student, I appreciate the dedication, determination, discipline, and direction exhibited by Phil during drum lessons. He has an outstanding ability in both playing and teaching. He understands perfectly what I am striving for and tailors the lesson to this requirement. He is knowledgeable and more than willing to impart this knowledge to the student. By providing background in the history of drumming as well as practical advice he makes the lessons informative, unique, beneficial, and fun. Barbara Wray
My wife always wanted to learn to play drums, so our whole family started taking drum lessons from Mike Baez. The training has been fantastic! With the electronic drum sets, Mike can give students personal attention at their individual levels. Great instruction! He is so good with the young students, also. It has been fun and educational. He has also given individual instruction to my sons in snare, keyboard, drum kit, and tympanni. They have progressed so much with Mike's help!
I met Zack many years ago and began to receive drum lessons from him. Having no prior knowledge or conceptual understanding, he slowly and patiently introduced me to the drums. Everything was explained in an easy to understand manner and as my skills progressed his lessons were more in depth. Everything from basic music notation and theory to keeping time and advanced drum patterns were covered. Very easy to get along with and makes you feel comfortable at your skill level. Never any judgements and plenty of positive reinforcement. Best drum lessons I've taken!
Terry is a very kind, polite and professional musician. He arranged to come and meet my son for a lesson. I appreciated his candor and professionalism in letting us know that he would not be able to meet my son's particular lesson needs.

I tailor my lessons for each specific student and make sure they understand the topic before moving on to another. I am very patient and will take my time to ensure my students do not feel pressured.
I look at getting you confident on the drums ASAP. I don't read or teach reading music per say. Although we will occasionally look at some drum notation, charts and rudiments, it's not a focal point, but more a tool to help explain a concept or idea. For more advanced players, I'm not going to tell you what you are doing is "right" or "wrong" and typically won't mess with your self-taught or learned technique unless I feel it will prevent injury or improve your playing. For the stronger players I will try to stump you with new concepts and styles you probably wouldn't have come in contact with playing in your rock band. These ideas will strengthen your overall playing and adaptability. My goal is to get you to a place where you can teach yourself.
We teach piano, guitar, voice, cello, violin, flute, and drums. Kinder music is taught at our studio from birth through age 5. Our studio has two recitals each year. We don't require a registration fee or contract to be signed.
I will focus on fundamentals that will help fast track the success of my students.
Learn to play drums in all styles from Rock to Jazz to Latin to Country. Learn to count. Learn to play with the rest of the band and what is expected of you from the bass player, the first player you need to lock in with.
