You Must Choose, But Choose Wisely...

For a monthly fee of $159, our program includes thirty minutes of private lessons per week. We also invite them to perform in our quarterly concerts. We'll form them into bands and give them the opportunity to perform the material they've been practicing in front of a live audience at some of DFW's top clubs.

Each new student is evaluated to determine the elements that will greatly contribute to their success and ensure that they are placed with the instructor that best suites their needs.  As a result, each student feels like an active participant in setting their goals, selecting their music and become more invested in their learning process.

FTATR school realizes that not everything can be learned in the classroom and that students need the experience of learning by doing!  In addition to weekly private lessons, we have several performance programs that offer students performance opportunities at real rock venues such as The House Of Blues, Sambuca 360, Maximedia Studios, as well as high profile events at  Grapefest, Southlake Town Square and Main Street Days!

 

Guitar & Bass

Absolute beginner to advanced.  Ages 8 and up.  
Schedule: Mon, Tue,Wed, Thur 3- 9pm,  Sat  11- 5pm

For your first lesson, bring in your favorite songs and we will immediately begin teaching you how to play the different parts. We know first hand that when you first pick up your guitar or bass you want to immediately start playing. We've figured out a way to simplify and eliminate the frustration and most importantly have fun.  As the students progress we start explaining underlying music theory and teach scales to build finger strength. Our goal is to help the students develop their ear to recognize the changes in the music, that's when they become a true musician.

Drums

Absolute beginner to advanced.  Ages 8 and up.
Schedule: Mon, Tue,Wed, Thur 3- 9pm

Students are encouraged to bring in their favorite songs and begin learning the basic beats as they play along.  Our drum rooms include two drum kits so our students can sit side by side with their instructor.  We have found that this is a very fun and efficient way to teach.  As the students progress they are also taught the rudiments to help round out their skills.   

 

Piano

Absolute beginner to advanced.  Ages 8 and up.  
Schedule: Mon, ,Wed, Thur 3- 9pm,   Sat  11- 5pm

We are anti traditional when it comes to our piano lessons. For piano we also encourage our students to begin their  lessons by learning a favorite song.  We will simplify the parts so the student has immediate satisfaction.  This method has had tremendous results.  Our goal is to develop the students ear so they can recognize the changes and not ever have to rely on sheet music.  Theory will be explained in a fun and easy manner all while working on the students favorite songs.

 

Vocals 

Absolute beginner to advanced.  Ages 8 and up.  
Schedule: Southlake Mon -Wed,  3- 9pm,   Plano Tues and Thursday 3-9pm
