    Mike is extremely knowledgeable about music 🎶 and is easy to understand ..... Plus he is just a really nice guy 😂 I’m glad I found someone with his experience to work with me indeed.

    Mike is fantastic! He is extremely patient and is very diverse in his teaching methods. Being an older student that is trying to get back into piano, Mike teaches you what you want to learn how to play while honing your basic skills at the same time. I would strongly suggest Mike as a piano instructor to anyone who would like to play. You will not regret it.

    A true professional musician, my daughter has been taking alto saxophone lessons from Mike for two years now and she's only a fifth grader. He easily communicates his instructions to the level she understands and plays along with her to reinforce them. As a result, she is now able to perform well at a 7th grade level with practice. Mike Naber has my highest recommendation to anyone wanting to learn not only the sax, but clarinet, flute and piano.

    My daughter had been taking lessons for the past year with another teacher but her progress was slow and steady. She started taking with Mike this summer and her voice started improving almost immediately. In addition to voice, he is also very talented in providing lessons for other instruments, such as saxophone and piano. My daughter ended up taking piano lessons from him as well. He is a patient and very kind. Bottom line, you know you have a great teacher when your child practice without even being asked. I highly recommend him!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

In our first lesson, I like to find out what you already know about the instrument/subject and what you would like to accomplish.  From there I work with you to set up a plan for lessons that will be fun and put you on track to meet your goals and grow you as a musician.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a bachelor's degree in music education from the University of North Texas with a concentration in saxophone.  I have performed in the North Dallas area since 1997 in a variety of groups and venues on saxophone, piano, woodwinds, and voice, as well as keeping a studio of students.  In addition to my teaching experience, I have a good deal of experience in performance, recording, songwriting, arranging, and music theory.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

My rates vary depending on the venue (I contract for a few studios in the area as well as doing lessons at my home).  Contact me for specifics.


What types of students have you worked with?

All ages, from grade school to adults.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Find a teacher and venue that you like.  Music education should be fun! Also find someone who knows what they are doing - experience and skill is important.
