I was excited to further expand my knowledge when I began learning to play worship music. Jenny was instrumental in this process and taught me the basics of reading chord charts. I was able to successfully join the worship ministry at Valley Creek Church during high school and gained great experiences throughout my time serving as a volunteer on this team.
I attended Liberty Christian School and was the recipient of the ``Best Overall Worship Culture`` award. I was also presented the Fine Arts Pursuit of Passion Scholarship upon graduation. I am currently pursuing a Bachelors Degree in Modern Music and a Certificate in vocals.

She has also performed in many musical theater shows such as Cinderella (Step Mother) and Oliver (Nancy) as well as performing in competitions throughout DFW for both Classical and Musical Theater singing.
Ericka has been playing classical piano since she was 7. She has taken lessons for many years and continued through college. She is self-taught on the acoustic guitar, and has been playing since 2020.
Now she is involved on the Worship Team at Valley Creek Church - serving with keys, acoustic guitar, music directing and worship leading. This has become her biggest passion and favorite place to use her musical talents.
She holds a B.M. in Choral Music Education from the University of North Texas, graduating in 2021. Since then she has been an Elementary Music Teacher in Frisco ISD, but she is excited to now be on the Legacy Music Studio teaching team! She is passionate about teaching students to love music and to develop who they are as a musician. She wants to help students become confident in their skills and have fun while doing it!
The following will cover Legacy Music Studio, LLC policies:
Meet & Greet
We love hosting 15-minute Meet & Greets with potential new students and families. During this time, we can answer any and all questions as well as give you a tour of our studio. The Meet & Greet teacher will provide a mini-lesson to get to know your student and evaluate their starting level. They also will help match them with the right teacher according to availability, goals, and personality.
Students may start lessons at any time during the year. Enrollment is always open.
Tuition is calculated with 16 lessons of instruction in the Fall semester and 16 lessons of instruction in the Spring semester. This is 32 weeks of lessons from mid-August to mid-May. Some months students may have five lessons and other months they may have two, but the tuition will even out over the course of the semester. There are 10 payments across 10 months of lessons. December and May tuition are half the price, so you have 9 full payments. Students may also pay for the semester in full. Committing to lessons means you’re committing to the semester. Sunday and Monday lessons are calculated based on 28 weeks across the school year.
Monthly Tuition Rates: Sunday and Monday lessons are $120/month & Tuesday thru Saturday lessons are $137/month
Tuition is due the first lesson of each month. If tuition is not paid on time, a $20 late fee will be assessed. If tuition is not paid by the second lesson of the month, lessons will be discontinued until tuition for that month is paid in full.
We also offer lesson packages for adults and students who need just a set of lessons. These can be purchased as follows: Four 30-min lessons for $154, Six 30-min lessons for $225, and Eight 30-min lessons for $305.
Our Summer semester offers families and teachers flexibility. We have individualized lessons packages to best fit your needs. We also have amazing camps for various age groups and interests. Taking summer lesson ensures priority scheduling with us in the fall. Please visit the SUMMER section of the website for more details.
Please contact your individual teachers for payment methods.
Legacy Music Studio offers two recitals a year. Recitals are not a requirement but viewed as a performance opportunity. Not all instruments/teachers participate in recitals. Please check with your specific teacher before registering for a recital.
Recital Registration is on the website with specific deadline dates. Students have separate recital fees per instrument. For example, if Brenner takes violin, voice, and piano and opts to perform as a violinist, vocalist, and pianist, then his parents pay for three recital registrations. If he opts to perform twice (one as a violinist and the other as a combined piano/vocals) then his parents pay for two Recital Registrations.
Makeup lessons are at the discretion of each instructor. Students may have ONE make up lesson per semester. If your instructor is unable to make a lesson, then they may reach out to reschedule or they may provide a sub. Families will be given a detailed Attendance Expectations document upon enrollment. This policy is in place to help encourage consistent attendance and consistent progress in the student. Thank you for your cooperation in this.
Preparation for Lessons
Students are expected to come to their lesson prepared: on time, with all materials, and well-practiced from the previous week’s lesson. As a general rule, most students should practice 4-5 times a week for 20-30 minutes. Beginner students will practice less at first. If a student comes to the lesson unprepared, then we will have them use their lesson time for practice and re-teaching. Keep in mind that practicing is going over a song multiple times (3X-5X) a day and reworking the more difficult parts. Running through a song from start to finish once is NOT practicing. Teachers write specific instructions for the students in their assignment spiral, so encourage your student to refer to the spiral to know what to work on.
Visitors to Lessons
In the past, we have allowed parents and siblings to sit in on a student’s lesson time. Unfortunately, this has proven to be more of a distraction than a help. Therefore, no visitors are allowed to stay in the teaching area during the lesson time. If you want to sit in our waiting area from time to time, then that is fine. You are welcome to sit in your vehicle, enjoy Old Town Lewisville’s many stores/vendors, or sit in our designated waiting area.
Questions or Concerns?
Children are a blessing from the Lord, and we are so honored that you have entrusted their musical education to us! We look forward to developing musical skills along with your child. Please feel free to contact us if you ever have any questions or concerns.
