The Man, The Myth, The TROY!!!!
Troy has been teaching my 8 year old daughter for 2 months now. So far, she has written her own song, mastered Fur Elice as well as two other songs I can't pronounce. My daughter had no previous lessons in piano prior. Troy provides a fun and structured way of teaching and my daughter really, really enjoys it! Wayne wrote on Mon, 03 Apr 2017
My 9yr old daughter really enjoyed working with Troy for her first lesson. He was really great at correcting without being too harsh and was able to keep her focused and engaged. Which isn't always easy with kids! It was a good experience overall. Alison Scarborough wrote on Tue, 04 Apr 2017
I have been taking lessons with Troy for about a month now, and have absolutely loved the experience as well as how much he's help me develop my voice. 10/10 Kendra Rinaldi wrote on Mon, 10 Apr 2017
Very pleased vocal lessons
Troy is very down to business. Starts off with the basics and uses every minute to teach. He also leaves you with what to work on in between sessions. He doesn't fill any of the air with useless talk to kill time. Every bit is filled with worth while training. I am very pleased and am looking forward to each session. Tj wrote on Fri, 14 Apr 2017
First Time Lesson
They say the English language limits the description of a human's Platonic Conception of something or someone. For me? This instructor and lesson can simply be summed up with one word: "Perfect". I have learned so much in the span of 1 hour than I EVER expected I could improve my voice in such a short time. I had the lesson over video cam and at first I was skeptical considering we aren't talking face to face in real life, however, I do not regret at all my decision to still have a lesson with mr. Troy online. I 100% recommend this instructor for your personal needs and improvements in any form of singing. Brandon Kim wrote on Mon, 17 Apr 2017

Mr. Troy is wonderful
We have a very energetic, bouncing off the walls 7-year-old son and we were so lucky that we were paired up with Troy. He is so patient with our son and works with his personality to ensure he is successful. In just a few lessons, we have seen our son improve and really start to understand and develop a true passion for singing. Troy's own passion for music shines through in his teaching and we love having him here each week! Cox Family wrote on Sat, 22 Apr 2017

First time lesson
Troy is a great teacher and really has inspired me to learn not just piano, but music in general. I'm really impressed with his knowledge and look forward to having more lessons. Tommy wrote on Fri, 12 May 2017
It's soooo worth trying Troy!
I was a little hesitant about lessons via webcam at first, but to have this top notch instructor available with the click of a button is soooo worth it! Troy contacted me right away to find out our goals for my daughter's lessons/singing and then explained his teaching methods, and I immediately felt we were in very capable hands. My daughter enjoys Troy so much and has learned an immense amount of music theory, a little piano, and gotten so much better at a piece she is working on for an audition, in a VERY short amount of time (3 lessons so far). He worked her into his schedule so she could get as many lessons in as possible prior to auditioning. The thing she enjoys most about him is that he explains things so thoroughly and in a way she understands and catches onto quickly and she is very comfortable with him. We will definitely continue lessons even after her audition is over. I highly recommend Troy! You won't be disappointed!! Mary Moten wrote on Sat, 13 May 2017
First lesson, First impression
After just one lesson, the kids are definitely excited about taking lessons from Troy. His patience and taking the time to explain why he is teaching a certain method really engages the kids. I have a 7 and 12 year old and I like how Troy encourages them to help each other during practice. We are looking forward to more classes in the future! Brenda Schmidt wrote on Tue, 16 May 2017
Best Lesson I've Ever Had
I was anxiously anticipating my 1st lesson with Troy. The day finally arrived. Troy shared so much musical knowledge with me that no one ever has. I've always wanted to know music and not just play music. I can tell with Troy, I will learn a lot. I truly feel that I will now be able to fulfill my dream of learning the language of music. Troy is very professional. He is just as excited to teach me as I am to learn. I am looking forward to our next session. Wan Coltrane wrote on Wed, 17 May 2017

Troy was wonderful. He assessed my voice then let me know what I was doing wrong and he didn't me feel bad about it. He shared his own experiences to make me feel like it wasn't just me. He also taught me some techniques to help improve my voice. He's great for someone who's a beginner like me. Leeonni Long wrote on Sat, 10 Jun 2017
My 6 yo has taken piano lessons before but was never inspired to really practice or play.

Troy is a phenomenal teacher to my 10 year old son. He teaches in a conversational way and makes each lesson into a fun adventure.

Amazing First Lesson
My 5yo daughter has taken piano for a little over a year and the lessons were almost excruciating...all of her initial excitement had totally worn off and she begged to quit even though we know she LOVES music and singing and talks about playing instruments often. I was convinced we just hadn't found the right instructor yet. So tonight, we had our very first lesson with Mr. Troy and it was inspiring, to say the least. Troy knows music, but more importantly, he knows kids. He is the first of 4 to see to get through to her. She even smiled once. We're looking forward to more lessons and building confidence in something we feel is already a passion for our daughter! Kristi wrote on Sun, 01 Oct 2017
Troy is wonderful!
Troy is teaching our 10 and 11 year old daughters who have both been in piano lessons at least 2 years plus prior to having lessons with him. They are happier and more excited about piano than they have ever been. He's teaching the to truly love and appreciate music rather than feeling forced to play some kid song out of a book. Troy has a deep passion and expansive knowledge of music and it shows in how he plays, teaches, and how speaks about music. He's very great with our kids and they look forward to his visit every week. Atchley Family wrote on Fri, 13 Oct 2017

Best Music and Art Teacher in Texas
I have been through an booked very many art and music teachers over the course of the last three years. Not once have they come to the knowledge level or capability of Troy. My children are learning an actually stay interested an excited for more lessons. I even feel like I am learning. They are able to sing now, they are able to play piano now, they are able to draw, and to read sheet music which blows me away. I would strongly recommend Troy before you go anywhere else. He is a magnificent teacher. He is, from my view an what I have been through prior-the BEST teacher in the business. He cares about children, the quality of their learning an has stayed over many many times to make sure my children are succeeding. He is critical but gentle. He doesn't lie to my children but he is understanding and motivating. My children are more creative, they are more confident now, they're not as shy as they once were. I definitely contribute a lot of that to the teaching and motivation Troy gives to us. Proud Mother of 2- Very satisfied customer! wrote on Wed, 17 Jan 2018

Can't say enough good things about Troy!
After our first lesson I think our whole family is impressed with Troy. Just seemed to have a similar style to us as parents and the kids responded in tune.

Phenominal Music Teacher
Troy's mastery in music is incredible. His passion for music comes out in his teaching style. He hits the ground running and weaves lessons on music theory and structure with hands on practical techniques. I never thought that after just one lesson I would have both hands working on the keyboard together. I know he teaches a lot of kids, but I highly recommend him for adults that have always wanted to learn piano but never had time. He will get you playing quickly with the confidence that you can take sheet music and solve the notes and start playing the song, bar by bar. Ann Dyer wrote on Tue, 07 Aug 2018

Troy is such a HUGE Blessing!!
Like others have stated, I really cannot say enough good things about Troy. I was looking for a voice coach for my 18 year old daughter who was getting ready to audition for the UNT choir. She was very nervous and has a medical condition that sometimes effects her memory. I was concerned because we dont have a piano only a keyboard. Troy assured me that he could help and he was Right!! My daughter learned so much in the first hour lesson with him. Things she never learned in her past six years of choir, including Honors Choir in High School. He is a plethora of information as well as great at sharing many tools, and details about technique that really helped my daughter feel confident in herself. He truly is like a magician with his abilities to present and teach information and encourage as well. He has been fun for her to work with and she has learned so much in just her first two lessons! He even caught an error in the sheet music we were using that was a Huge big saver!! She had her audition today and did really well and we will continue the lessons with Troy in the future! We are very excited to see where she grows and develops with her passion for music and Troy is a definite asset to our journey. Daisy Williams wrote on Fri, 24 Aug 2018
I wanted a teacher to provide me with not only skills on how to sing but on how to apply singing. Troy not only met that but exceeded my expectations.

Especially since he has knowledge beyond singing you can learn from. Jeff wrote on Tue, 28 Aug 2018

Troy is a fantastic music teacher with a vast knowledge about the language of music. He is a very skilled pianist and with much knowledge about all aspects of the instrument.

My brother and I have both grown as individual artists after doing lessons with him. Ronny/Ricky Hota wrote on Fri, 10 Apr 2020
I have been taking lessons with Troy for about a month now. It has been a great learning experience. He has helped me to start breaking out of my shell and nervousness of withing singing. I have experienced some tough lessons with pitch tuning, but those tough lessons have been worth it. He is a really good vocal coach who know exactly what he is doing. He encourages you to keep pushing forward, does not allow you to make any excuses, and will give you homework. So please make sure you have a notebook and something to write with, you will be learning a lot of good and useful information you will need to keep track of. I highly recommend Troy as a vocal coach. I plan to continue my vocal lessons. Jovan Jordan wrote on Sun, 19 Apr 2020

There is better lesson on Youtube
Where should I start on how horrible my experience. Problem #1 The instructor didn't email, text or call me ahead of time to give me the skype information for us to have our virtual lesson. I had to text him 30 minutes before the lesson started, to ask for the skype line or email. Problem #2 When he got on the call, he was eating. He keep smacking and I could hear the spoon to bowl clanking sound. He came on to the lesson asking "so what are we doing?" I ask what does he mean, he was asking did i sign up for guitar, piano lesson, etc.. Problem 3. How do you not know what I'm here for. Its completely unprofessional to show up to a session as an instructor and not know what your doing or have a lesson ready. You embarrassed your brand and the Taylor Robinson Music Lessons. Problem #4,5,6 Because he didn't give an proper introduction or/and give me a lesson plan or/and tools I needed prior to my session. I spent almost 20 minutes of my 30 minutes session, going to find a pen and paper. Waiting for my computer to start so I could download a virtual piano just to do about a minute and half of basic pitch exercise and sing over a song. TROY the instructor quickly at the 30 minute mark of our session was like "ya so work on these notes on the piano and you should sign up for more classes" and he was done. He gave me the most started kit singing advice saying you need to sing with a piano. If Troy actually took the time to listen and been more prepared on who I was. He would know that I have been in choir most of my life, so I know I'm supposed to sing with a piano. He should have advised that due to covid-19, we have to a do virtual session and that I would need a to download the virtual piano before the session. Instead of listening to him eat the whole time. It was a waste of time and $35. Troy offered the most ghetto and unprofessional service I have ever experienced. Angela Ciccotti+ wrote on Sun, 13 Sep 2020

My son started voice lessons with Troy about three months ago and the improvement has been amazing. Not only can I hear it, my son can tell, which is improving his confidence. In addition, his musical theater teacher made a comment about how much he has improved since the spring. This improvement is a credit to Troy's teaching style. My son loves working with him and he pushes my son to get better. Glad we chose Troy, you should too, you won't regret it. Joel wrote on Mon, 21 Sep 2020
I found my new instructor
Troy has gone far above my expectations. Not only has my play improved but I am learning more about writing/recording music than I ever imagined. I highly recommend Troy and am enjoying reaching new heights in music. He has a great teaching style that makes it fun and easy to understand. Brian D wrote on Wed, 30 Sep 2020
I've been taking vocal lessons for several months and it's been a wonderful experience. I'm 29 and a complete beginner. Troy has been great to work with, he has definitely helped me improve. The weekly homework encourages me to practice on the days I don't have lessons. I would definitely recommend Troy and Taylor Robinson Music. Madalyn Neff wrote on Tue, 17 Nov 2020
I Purchased $1.8k Of Lessons... Here's Why...
As an artist I was finding road block after road block with expressing my ideas. everything from singing, playing instruments, to learning music theory. I started looking for a few months and told the Taylor Robinson team exactly what I was looking for which was a teacher who understood the creative process of making music and was an artist them selfs and thats where I ended up meeting Troy. I have no formal lessons and couldn't make instrumentals or sing for my life Troy has a deep background in music with well known names, and has trained people you might have heard. Currently we're working on R&B, POP, & Hip-Hop and focusing on the creation of music, developing a singing voice, and the creative writing process. Troy continues to challenge me and push me forward by running drills and applying a lot of improve work. typically in a session he'll have me make 2 to 5 beats within a 30-1 hour time frame. all coming from a guy who couldn't make a beat Singing, I couldn't sing at all when i met Troy but after about 5 lessons or so i'm able to hold notes, follow notes, listen for root notes, and so on. This has really elevated my game. So far after 5 lessons i'm able to make instrumentals, apply music theory to my music, sing we're still working on that, and understand how listeners experience music. i'm keeping everything general because there's a lot i can say about this guy but i dont think anybody would read a short novel. He's chill, has an open mind, and is a great mentor. He's gone above and beyond for me during our lessons. if you're trying to learn quickly and efficiently hire Troy! Hakim wrote on Fri, 04 Dec 2020
Troy is the man!
After only a couple vocal/songwriting lessons with Troy, I have gained a much better understanding of my strengths/weaknesses. He's approached my lessons with what I have currently been focused on/aiming for, and then adds his inputs for areas to improve. Listening and applying what he teaches has fundamentally improved my overall process for singing/writing. He's a straight shooter, knows his stuff, doesn't waste any time, would highly recommend him for anyone looking to further their musical abilities. James Ringo wrote on Sun, 03 Jan 2021
Troy gets you excited about learning something new. He is caring, knowledgeable, and spends time with you making sure you are confident in what you are doing. Everything happens for a reason. I'm so fortunate that the universe connected me with him. Ramez Shamieh wrote on Mon, 01 Feb 2021
There is no substitution for one on one voice lessons if your serious about becoming great.
I imagine if I kept practicing by myself I would have become an okay singer eventually. I don't want to become just an "okay" singer. I want to be a great singer! I have complete confidence that I'm on the path to becoming great because of Troy. He has real industry knowledge and makes his own music, and his music is great! Seriously, you need to hire Troy. Stop reading this review now and sign up for lessons. If you're worried about voice lessons because you're afraid of "sounding bad" or "being critiqued" you need to just stop that right now. I have never sung in front of a stranger before and with Troy I was 100% comfortable in one minute. Troy has a way of keeping the lessons fun and light and you will be comfortable too!

Troy is awesome
I am an up and coming artist who felt like they needed some help with writing due to a lack of inspiration, but Troy was able to provide me methods and ideas I had never even thought of and made my life of making music feel 10x easier with his wide range of knowledge over the music industry.

Troy is a fantastic teacher.
He is patient, knowledgeable, transparent and very enthusiastic about helping the student to get the best out of his tutelage. I was very impressed with his understanding of the fundamentals of singing and how he pointed out the areas I needed work on. In every instance, he was spot on. Hands down the best music teacher I've ever had. If I could give more than 5 stars, I would. Preye wrote on Mon, 22 Nov 2021
