I have been playing piano and guitar since before my first memories as a child! I have a passion for music that shows. From being classically trained in piano, to conducting my high school marching band, to leading worship at my local church, to playing saxophone in numerous jazz combos/big bands, and singing in my university's choir, I truly have a diverse range of musicality and will use everything that I have learned to make you the musician you aspire to be!
I am currently studying music theory at Dallas Baptist University where I am being equipped to be a composer (which is my dream). I am in my second year of college.
Thank you for checking my profile out and I hope to hear from you soon! As always, have fun making music and God bless!
My daughter took piano lessons with Mr. Lengyel (Nicholas) and loved every minute of it! He is very patient and finds ways to be thought provoking and intuitive to make my kiddo understand exactly how to play better.
Evaluate the level of musicianship the student is currently at and then work our way up from there!
I have been in piano lessons since elementary school and was taught guitar from my father at a very young age. Since then all I do is eat, sleep, and breath music. I was first chair saxophone in high school and head drum major (conductor) for our marching band. I have worship led at my 500 member church on both piano and guitar accompanied with singing. I currently sing in my university's presitigious choir. I believe I am very qualified to help you hit the music goals that you are trying to reach, whether that be Chopsticks or Chopin.
My pricing is 20 dollars for a 30 minute lesson or 35 dollars for a full hour.
I believe my prices to be EXTREMELY reasonable for Dallas. My current piano lessons teacher is 50 dollars for 30 minutes and my teacher before hers was 80 dollars for an hour! All to tell me to practice scales more often!
I want to be affordable for someone who is interested in lessons but still be worth my time and I believe that this price guarentees both!
My first student was my niece just a few years ago! I needed to practice teaching someone so I sat my 5 year old (at the time) niece down and gave her regularly scheduled lessons every week.
So far my range has stayed within elementary schoolers but I hope I add more to that list soon!
Went to a Dallas Symphony Orchestra concert that was a lot of fun.
Find someone that makes you want to play your music and sit down and practice. Anybody can tell you when to cross your thumb playing "Etude who cares" but not everyone can make it worth your while.
Each student should know that you have to practice! If you don't then you are wasting your own time just as much as mine. Ask your teacher how much time they need to practice throughout the week.
Find out about the teacher's book requirements. All teachers use materials found in a training type book with different pieces of repertoire.
