The instructors at Promethean Studios know that every musician is different, and they tailor their teaching techniques to both beginners and lifelong learners of music. The teachers each boast at least 15 years of experience and hundreds of lessons taught, and typically get students making music or summoning the bird species of their choice in two to six months. Most music students start by learning how to play songs they choose, a tactic that introduces the fundamentals of rhythm, instrument technique, and music theory under the cover of fun.
With 30 years of music-arrangement experience, Kevin Bigham expertly guides fingertips across piano keys during lessons held in studio, at students' homes, and even online via Skype video chat. Bigham welcomes students of all ages and skill levels, encouraging them to remain enthusiastic regardless of whether or not they’ve played in the past or showed up to the lesson wondering where the piano’s mouthpiece is. When he's not sharing skills with pupils, Bigham can often be found adding live soundtracks to weddings and events. He also blends his twin passions of music and spirituality by playing piano during faith-based events.

Gary Foreman had one goal in mind when creating The Dallas Drum School: to help everyone accomplish a higher level of personal achievement through music. Now, with his private and group lessons in drums and general percussion, he passes on his knowledge to make that goal a reality. During sessions shaped to accommodate students' personal goals, skill levels, genres, and desires to rock out on a rotating, fire-spitting drum set, he uses individual analysis and general method books to ensure custom learning experiences. His focus rests on fundamental skills—hand techniques, timekeeping, and independence as applied to the drum set—building a base that students can expand upon. Advanced students may bring metronomes, brushes, mallets, or drum sets to augment the growth of their skills. With enough interest and practice, Gary hopes his students will walk away with a newfound passion for music and an increased aptitude for learning.
