Anthony and Angie Gardner founded Gardner Music Studio back in 2009, teaching lessons in Granbury, Azle, Fort Worth, and all in between. After taking a few years off to earn an MBA, the Gardners are back with their studio and working to bring fun and approachable music education to Fort Worth.
Both Angie and Anthony Gardner have been playing piano for over 20 years, and have been performing in various large and small ensembles and as soloists for over 15 years.
Angie began learning piano at 6 years old and has always loved singing. She grew up in Henderson, NV and in high school she was a Nevada All-State Choir member for 3 years and Alto II Chair her Senior year. She returned after graduation as an accompanist for her high school choir during their tour in Orlando, FL.
Angie pursued her love of music at Brigham Young University, earning a Bachelor of Arts in Music and singing in BYU Singers for three years as a soprano. She also accompanied local Utah school choirs for concerts and competitions.
As a teacher, Angie excels in teaching children the basics of piano and music theory, incorporating a mix of solid technique fundamentals and structured music games to maximize retention. She's a devoted user of the Wunderkeys Method Series but also incorporates other methods to tailor her lessons to the individual learner. Her philosophy is that ALL children can be musical, no matter the circumstances, and the journey should be fun as well as empowering.
Anthony began playing cello and piano at 10 years old and hasn’t looked back since. He was a cellist in various Youth Orchestras in high school and graduated as the principal cellist of the Youth Orchestra of Greater Fort Worth. In addition, for a few semesters in high school, Anthony was unable to play cello due to hand injuries, giving him ample opportunity to learn the violin.
In addition to cello, Anthony joined choir in 9th grade and immediately began participating and excelling in auditioned events, from city-wide choirs to the Arizona and Texas All-State Choirs. Anthony attended the Northern Arizona University Summer Music Camp for 5 summers, expanding his knowledge and mastery of voice, cello, and music theory.
Anthony attended Brigham Young University and earned a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance in 2009, and sang with BYU Singers for three years as a tenor during his undergraduate education. In 2012, Anthony returned to BYU to earn a Master of Business Administration degree (MBA), and once again sang with BYU Singers. He recently became certified to teach in Texas and is now the Head Choir Director at Seagoville Middle School in Dallas ISD.
As an instructor, Anthony enjoys teaching teenagers and adults, combining humor and performance mastery into his lessons, just to keep things interesting.
Anthony is currently a board member and principal cellist of the Fort Worth Civic Orchestra and principal cellist of the Brazos Chamber Orchestra.
