Premier Music Lessons at Any Age at Tempo School of Music

By Elizabeth R. Elstien

With the help of Tempo School of Music, any time is a good time to let music into your life. From guitar to horns, instructors at this music school in Houston teach eager learners from ages as young as 4, to even those in their 70s. Once you step into this learning establishment, you'll be immersed in the sounds of music.

"Teachers are full-time instructors", says Owner Alan Darby, "This is not our side job." Believing private lessons are the best way to learn, you'll get one-on-one instruction for everything from piano, guitar, bass guitar, violin, saxophone, flute, clarinet, drums or even vocal lessons.

All with at least 15 years of experience, many instructors have been at Tempo since its opening in 2000. While they may be serious about teaching, one look at their website will give you a feel for their lighter side, with jokes for musicians on their Lounge page. Where else can you sing and laugh in one place?

Started by Darby and a "small group of experienced and dedicated professional music instructors," he tells us, "We have been in business for over 16 years, and we offer lessons with some of the most experienced instructors in the Houston area at very reasonable rates."

In order to keep these lessons affordable, no registration fees are charged for new or existing students. Their strategy must be working, as over 250 students come to Tempo School of Music each week from Houston, Katy, Richmond, The Woodlands and other nearby areas.

"I remember thinking it was so beautiful and previous to that day I really didn't have a lot of interest in music," Darby exclaims as he remembers when he first got into music after listening to a Celtic folk song in choir practice. In fact, his singing was so good that he was promptly asked to join the 6th grade choir, even while still in the 4th grade. He was featured as a vocal soloist from then on until he left the choir in high school to play in the band. Darby had discovered his love for playing guitar in middle school, as he often used to play it to accompany his voice. It is then when he discovered his love for guitar, an instrument he still plays today.

As many of us already know, children can learn an abundance of valuable skills simply through learning how to play an instrument. "Research has proven that learning to play an instrument helps with improving other aspects of education, as well as developing concentration and discipline", Darby explains.

Even though students must work hard and practice between lessons, Tempo instructors keep it fun. "Some of the teachers also have recitals throughout the year so the students get an opportunity to perform," says Darby.
