North Texas School of Talent Education

Excellence within reach. Private lessons are held weekly and are various lengths depending on the age and level of the students.

The North Texas School of Talent Education (NTSTE) is a Suzuki program offering private violin and viola instruction and group lessons to children ages 3 -18. Group classes, informal recitals, group concerts, and play-ins are scheduled in addition to the private lessons and are organized according to the students' level. Three yearly formal recitals allow the students to grow as young performing artists.

Many congratulations to Sophia for her fantastic performance of the Bruch concerto last night with the GDYO Philharmonic. Your third movement was an absolute triumph and you played with such beauty and expression! It was wonderful to see so many students in the audience and also in the orchestra (playing so professionally and expertly). A wonderful evening! Bravo Tutti!

Congratulations to Sophia for her outstanding performance of all movements of the Bruch Violin Concerto in the Lewisville Lake Concerto Competition. She earned Second Prize in the Junior Division! To play an entire concerto in competition is a significant milestone for any young artist, and to win a prize as an external symbol of hard work and self-expression is a nice bonus! Brava, and well done!

Bach - Concerto in A Minor - Daniel Wang 01/06/2021

With great pride we present a very special Book 7 Graduation Recital from NTSTE student Daniel Wang, who is a 6th grade violin student of Charles Krigbaum. Daniel has been taking violin lessons completely online during the pandemic and completed Book 7 without ever seeing his teacher in person. While it's been many months since Mr. Krigbaum and Daniel have worked together in the same room, Daniel has nevertheless made amazing and substantial progress. He has adapted to online learning and remained deeply connected to NTSTE through weekly private and group lessons. He shares with you now the two most important pieces in Volume 7 of the Suzuki Violin School: Handel, Sonata in A Major and Bach, Concerto in A minor. Daniel, we are so proud of you, and your growth and emerging artistry are on beautiful display in this lovely home recital. Bravo!!

Eccles Sonata in G Minors Raymond Wu 08-30-2020 09/04/2020

NTSTE students have been hard at work preparing home concerts of the pieces they learned this summer in their online lessons. Here Raymond, 6th grade student from Allen, TX, performs Henri Eccles Sonata in G minor. Fun facts about Raymond: he has an incredible sense of humor and is a fine amateur artist. He has written over 30 unique comics for Mr. Krigbaum—while his sister takes her lesson—and they are all creative and hysterical.
