My music studio is actually all over the city of Austin as I go to my students’ homes, particularly my piano students. I do this so that they will be learning to play using the instrument on which they will be practicing all week. Besides piano, I teach guitar, voice, ukelele, mandolin, music theory and songwriting.
I use a variety of methods, and after the student reaches an adequate skill level, I am happy to tailor the lessons to whatever style and music entices them.
There is a theory component woven into the lessons, so that the student will understand how a piece of music is constructed, should they feel moved to create their own.
I do require my students to practice, but I also feel that this should be a fun endeavor, and a lifelong source of enjoyment and fulfillment.
Of course I also have my own music studio where students can come if they don’t have instruments or a suitable place of their own.
