About Me

Hi

I have been playing piano & keyboard for over 10+ years and other instruments for around 4 years. I lead worship and I am in tune with today's worship and music. I also do digital recording for instruments, vocals etc.
If you want to learn piano/keyboard along with the aspects of music as a whole, I can train you and help you practice to be a successful musician.
I play instruments and sing every week and practice over twice a week. My involvement and experience with music, community events and band experience will be key tools to have a wonderful, fun and exciting experience in learning.

*Strengths* - Pop, RnB, Radio edits & Covers
**BIGGEST STRENGTH** - Christian music, Worship etc

*** Lesson Details ***
Intro : Need to know your goal/ what you want to do with learning piano/keyboard or music as a whole.
- I can be strict at times but my age makes me pretty laid back and understanding. But being strict is necessary so I have to take that role.
- Curriculum depends based on what the student wants. Could range from a textbook all the way to just regular music files. Mandatory *** NOTEBOOK & Laptop or desktop*** (This is to implement old school + technology)
- After 3 months, You will be at a level where you would be so excited to tell others about what you have learned and also show them what you have accomplished. You will be at a way higher level than before. (Of course this depends on your age & level you start at)

*** Studio Equipment ***

For advanced players, Jim can coach the student through the music of Bach, Beethoven and Mozart and prepare for a college auditions. Jim can also teach how MIDI and recording works and the student can even make a CD or MP3 of their own creation.

Martin D. Clearwater, FL

Subjects Taught

Banjo, Bass Guitar, Classical Guitar, Guitar, Music Theory, Piano

About Me

I've been teaching professionally for over ten years and have taught over 200 students of all ages and backgrounds how to play. I've played mostly in rock bands but have also done Classical, Jazz, and Country projects. I play a wide selection of styles including Rock, Pop, Country, Ragtime, Folk, Blues, Bluegrass, Metal, Church, Renaissance, Punk, and Funk/Soul. (Everything from Bach to Rock to Bachrach). I graduated from the University of Maryland and Excelsior College.

*** Lesson Details ***
I listen closely to the student's wants and together we develop the approach that will help them reach their goals. I use a wide variety of methods from strict classical methods (such as Noad or Parkening) to simply teaching chords and "tabbing out" their favorite songs. However, I do make sure the student understands underlying theory and becomes a musician not a parrot. Each student has different strengths and weaknesses (cognitive and physical) and different amounts of time to practice. I take all of these into account in developing your individual lesson plan.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Separate studio room, hundreds of music books, 3 chairs, guitars, amps, and bass, keyboard and piano

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students should have own instrument and amp. I bring books and handouts.

*** Specialties ***
Guitar and Bass: Beg. to Advanced

banjo and piano: Beg. - intermediate

All Styles (except Flamenco) to include Folk, Acoustic Fingerstyle, Rock, Punk, Blues, Country, Church, Bluegrass, Soul, Ragtime and Classical.

About Me

Hello, fellow music lovers! My name is Nicole and I would be honored to have the opportunity to help you take your music skills, whether beginning to advanced, to the next level! I am a singer with 25+ years of experience with solos, small ensemble groups, and large choirs. My singing styles range from opera, musical theatre, jazz, gospel, and christian contemporary, just to name a few. : )  I am also an experienced flutist with 5 + years of study and an intermediate-level pianist with about 5 years of study in the classical technique, and playing chords to follow most any style. I also enjoy teaching some music theory (the rules of music) in written, sight singing, and piano chords, if requested. Along with voice and instrument lessons to provide a further understanding of each musical concept.My training first began in elementary school, in Virginia Beach, VA,  when I took my first voice and concert band classes as a beginning flutist. I continued my study with a prominent home school band in the 7th grade. I was then chosen to play the flute in an All City Band in Virginia Beach, for excellence in my performance skills. From there I continued my study at a private school in Virginia Beach with many chorus, band, and youth band classes to further my music reading and improvisational performance skills. At age eighteen I moved to Tampa, FL and became a Liberal Arts major with a concentration in Music at Hillsborough Community College (HCC). I graduated from HCC with an AA in Liberal Arts/Music in 2000. I was then accepted to further my music study at the University of South Florida (USF) in 2000. I studied rigorously with Dr. Warren Jaworki while there from 2000-2003 and then returning in 2009. I graduated with two and one-half years of music education training and another four years of voice training in December of 2009 with a BA in Music Studies. Also, during my college years I participated in the elite USF Chamber Singers, the University Singers, the Master Chorale of Tampa Bay, and many studio recitals. I have recently completed my fourth year of music teaching in a small private school in Tampa, FL. I worked with Opera Tampa for their 2012-2013 season in the professional chorus for the Un Ballo en Maschera opera, and La Boheme. I will have the pleasure to work with Opera Tampa again this 2013-2014 season in the professional  chorus for all their productions of Mozart's, The Magic Flute and Bizet's, Carmen. In addition, I am continuing my studies part time at The Patel Conservatory with renown vocal coach, mentor, and opera singer, Stella Zambalis. I look forward to working with you to make all your music dreams come true! So, let's make beautiful music together very soon!  

*** Lesson Details ***
When taking lessons with me you can expect to learn in a very positive, encouraging, and laid back environment! I believe that learning can be fun, very rewarding, and never stops. I plan to continue learning more about my craft for the rest of my life and I would encourage my students of all ages to adopt this mentality also. For voice lessons I like to begin with warm-ups and breathing exercises that can be modified to any style of songs. Then to song selections that will be enjoyable, yet helpful in making your voice better. For opera style I primarily use the G. Schirmer Opera Anthology books, and Hal Leonard published anthology series' for different art songs. For all other vocal styles I enjoy using various published individual-song sheet music or CDs and accompaniment tracks. Along the way giving all applicable tips for producing better sound, projection, breathing, phrasing, and musicality.For flute lessons I would begin with scale or simple exercises. Then to specific pieces that you would want to work on or techniques from the Accent on Achievement or Standards of Excellence book series'.For piano lessons I would begin with finger stretches, scale warm-ups and/or easy chords or pieces to get the fingers ready to work. Then I would progress to your chosen pieces or a book from the Alfred Piano Book series', which includes books for all levels and styles. 

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide a keyboard for demos and use for students, a flute for demos, CDs, and some lesson books.

*** Specialties ***
Vocal: Classical, Jazz, Musical Theatre
Flute: Classical, Beginning sightreading
Piano: Chord Theory, Beginning sight-reading
