The Espinoza Music Academy

All music lessons at The Espinoza Music Academy are taught by Rafael & Emmylou Espinoza. Rafael holds an A.A. in Classical Guitar Performance from Tyler Junior College and a B.A. in Music Performance from Berklee College of Music where he graduated Magna Cum Laude. Emmylou also received an A.A. in Classical Guitar Performance from Tyler Junior College before earning her B.A. in English Literature from the University of Texas at Tyler. 

Emmylou has been teaching private music lessons for over 10 years and has also taught general music classes at a small Christian school (Pre-K through 8th grade). Rafael took courses in the art of pedagogy at Berklee and since graduating has addressed this Berklee class on several occasions via the internet.

As working musicians, Rafael & Emmylou emphasize mastery of the skills you need to play with other musicians and to perform in front of an audience. The Espinozas are multi-instrumentalists and specialize in accompanying every student in lessons and in recitals. Lessons are tailored to students age and ability. There is something for everyone! Young children will enjoy the newly implemented incentives program which rewards progress and encourages practice. The Espinozas strive to provide their middle school to high school age students with many opportunities to perform in a group setting and in front of an audience; for example, several of our middle school & high school age students had the opportunity to perform at The Kacey Musgraves Hometown Hang. Adult students can work on their skills and add to their repertoire in a supportive environment. 
Lessons are scheduled by appointment. Call 903-638-8023 or private message this Facebook page to learn about our monthly rates.

A prominent feature of The Espinoza Music Academy is the stage room where all student recitals are conducted. The stage room is an intimate space but it comfortably seats 50, is Air Conditioned, and includes 1 restroom. In addition to student recitals, The Espinoza Music Academy hosts live original music concerts. Acclaimed artists from around the world have played the Espinoza Music Academy such as blues guitarist Matt Schofield, fingerstyle guitarist Richard Smith, Rockabilly and Americana artist Lara Hope and the Gold Hope Duo, Swedish Americana band The LoveFlowers, and many more. The Espinozas also play regularly in the form of their band Rafael Espinoza and the Rockabilly Railroad as well as The Hubbard Family Band, a Christian music ministry.
