5 stars for Troy
"I would say that Tory is one of the best instructors I've ever had. In just three lessons I have learned so much more than years with other teachers. He challenges me and helps grow my confidence. Also an awesome human being in general. " wrote at Friday, Feb. 15th 2019

The first one was amazing I’ve always loved to sing and I want to maybe start using my voice to help me out monetarily and just be precise and completely confident in my vocal abilities. Troy has shown me that he is perfect for helping me out with this. The first session he just went over the basics and I’ve already learned so much!" Denisha wrote at Friday, Sep. 14th 2018
Terrific w Toddlers
"Yesterday was my 3 year old daughter's first piano lesson and it was wonderful. Mr. Troy was very patient and calm if you can imagine working with the energy and attention of a 3 yr old. I was impressed with how he was able to communicate the first concepts to her on a level that she understood as well as myself. He's very personable and didn't rush the process. Very excited to continue working with Mr. Troy!!!!" Crystal Cormier wrote at Friday, Sep. 14th 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. I look forward to continuing lessons and picking his brain for as much as I can learn. A perfect choice in either advanced lessons and beginner lessons. Especially since he has knowledge beyond singing you can learn from." Jeff wrote at Tuesday, Aug. 28th 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 at Friday, Aug. 24th 2018
"Very good. My daughter love voice lesson from Taylor Robinson ." Luba wrote at Sunday, Aug. 12th 2018
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 at Tuesday, Aug. 07th 2018
Wish I would have found him sooner!!!
"I've struggled with Music and Art my whole life. This guy comes along and shows me techniques that dramatically change the way I've done things.

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. Informed us, asked pointed questions, then formed a plan and gave direction as to why he was going in the direction he was. Just all around worked well for our kids.

Voice Lessons, Music Theory, Piano Lessons
"Taking lessons with Troy has helped to boost my confidence an self-esteem. Troy is an excellent Teacher who has helped me to understand music in a different light.

"We originally booked a lesson with a different instructor as a tester to see how this would work. That instructor ended up not being available and a rep for Taylor Robinson recommended Troy. We are so grateful! Troy is excellent! He has the ideal balance of knowledge and coolness an was able to "get" my daughter in the first 30 mins. There is no time waste during the lesson an yet he keeps it fun an interactive. My daughter loves her lessons!" Lilly Rodriguez wrote at Monday, Feb. 19th 2018

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 at Wednesday, Jan. 17th 2018

"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 at Friday, Oct. 13th 2017
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 at Sunday, Oct. 01st 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 at Saturday, May. 13th 2017
