About Me

Mike has been playing the guitar for over 35 years. For the last 12+ years he has played guitar with the modern worship teams at two different churches. For the last 5+ years he has been teaching guitar at the local elementary and middle schools. And since 2005 he has shared his love of the guitar with thousands of school children as part of the annual Great American Teach-In.

Mike has played professionally for the Tarpon Springs Performing Arts Center’s productions of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, The Little Shop of Horrors, and Baby. He also played guitar for the Tarpon Springs High School production of The Wizard of Oz.

Mike holds a B.A. in Audio Recording and Production and worked as a radio DJ and music store manager for several years before moving into the technology sector. Mike has extensive experience as an audio engineer (FOH and studio) as well as video editing experience. During his 25+ years in the technology world Mike has been a corporate trainer, application developer, support consultant, and currently teaches I.T. classes at a local community college. Mike is constantly seeking new ways to merge his love of music with his technical background.

*** Lesson Details ***
Mike's teaching style is a mix of the theoretical and the practical. He believes in providing a solid "book knowledge" (chord theory, music reading, tab,etc.) but framed in a fun and engaging way that motives the student to want to play (and practice) their instrument. This is accomplished by using songs and musical styles that appeal to the student vs. simply "going by the book" all the time. Whether teaching music or computer skills, Mike has been blessed with the ability to translate the technical into "layman terms" so that the student can quickly grasp the concept without getting hung up on the "geek speak."

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room with guitars on the walls; amp, tuner and effects available (for lesson); music CDs, with couch for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
Student provides guitar. I can provide amp (for lesson), audio samples, practice CDs, tuner, recording of student's lesson (if desired for reference/practice), etc.

About Me

Hello! My name is Eddie. I've been playing Piano and Keyboards for 35 years I come from a long line of musicians, I learned music theory at a very early age and started performing at 15.

I am bilingual so i can teach both in English and Spanish.

I love all kinds of music Rock Pop Latin Jazz.

One of the things that motivated me to start teaching was my own experience as a student, one of my first teachers was very strict and boring, one wanted me to play like him, one actually tapped me on the head
if I made a mistake reading. I believe music should be a fun experience, music should allow you to express your feelings, so I decided that if I taught I would make it fun and make sure the student has immediate results.

Let's learn and have fun! The student will be playing a song after 1 or 2 lessons.

My influences in Jazz Easy Listening are:

Sting, Gino Vanelly, Pat Metheny, Michael Franks, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennet, Spyro Gyra, Jeff Lorber,
Chick Corea, George Benson, Larry Carlton, Quincy Jones.

My influences in Rock/Pop are:

Daryl Hall, Marvin Gay, Sade, Journey, Boston, Brian Adams, Michael Bubble, David Foster, Elton John,
Billy Joel. Sergio Mendez.

*** Lesson Details ***
Whether is Piano lessons, Music/Audio recording or Song Writing lessons I use curricula that are used at the best schools of music. That curricula adapted to my experience in the real world has allowed me to teach on a way that is tailored to the student needs; and at the same time it makes it fun for the student.

A Piano/Keyboard lesson usually looks like this:

1. We start with strength and dexterity exercises with scales. These also help with timing and reading.

2. I'll answer any questions the student may have and we'll start learning Harmony and/or music theory.

3. We end the class by learning or practice a song so that the student gets a sense of accomplishment.

A student can develop repertoire and give a recital and/or join a band while also learning music.

I encourage the student to pick their own songs.

I want the students to learn and have fun learning.

I use Hannon to get strength and dexterity, and I split the lessons in 3: theory, practice, and song learning.

A Recording lesson usually looks like this:

1. Learn the terminology and Icons of the recording Program

2. We write or copy a song from the ground up using virtual and MIDI Instruments

3. Record audio, Voice and Acoustic Instruments

4. Mix the song, levels, correct timing, pitch correction and effects.
