About Me

My Background in Music:

My inspiration first started when I was seven years old and in second grade. I was pondering if I wanted to dedicate myself to the music field. A substitute piano teacher came in that day and played and my admiration decided me to pursue this ambition for my life work.

I studied and played guitar and auto-harp as a child because of our lack of piano. The guitar was a gift and I played it for years and studied vocal music throughout school.

When I was a young teenager I started playing with a group that I met in a barn and I was thrilled. Many other musicians have been part of my story and as a young person I studied privately with such greats as Michelle Barone Horsefield as well as with with studio musicians such as the Scott Steeleman Studio and John Sayer.

Education:

When I was a little older I started studying at the Community Music School at Capital University in Columbus Ohio. I studied with Joan Hall Huet and enjoyed her style and training as well as Steve Caricciola out of Capitol who played organ and taught me composition. Those are only two of the wonderful teachers with whom I trained.

As I was studying, there came an opportunity for me to study and work with the founding member of the Columbus Symphony Orchestra. He was Mr. Robert Buchsbaum of Coronet Recording Studio. I came into his studio to make a demo tape and he offered me a job.

He was a fantastic engineer as well as the finest of oboists. We talked music for nine years together. He changed my life in so many countless ways that it would take a book to explain what was brought to me musically at that time.

I continued to play as well as help in the studio wherever and whenever I was needed. I recorded and wrote many original pieces and became copyrighted as well as a member of BMI and ASCAP.

I won the USO talent show in 1985 and was offered the possibility of travel, but I chose to stay in Columbus. I was very blessed to have met and worked with many of the finest professors in the country as they were a part of our Artist-In-Residence Series in the studio.

People such as Rosemary Platt, a professor of Ohio State University, Paul Droste, TBDBITL and retired OSU marching band director. I came to Florida in 2001 and have expanded my musical adventures. I continue to play musically with a few local musicians and write music. I plan to continue to be an active force in the music field as well as teach other people how to be fine musicians.

Credits:

I have been involved within the music industry for many years. My credits include working almost ten years in a classical recording studio of high reputation. I have trained with many fine teachers and have grown to love the music field more and more. My goal is to expand your knowledge into a lifetime love for the music field and not to frustrate you with seemingly impossible tasks.

Children and Adults:

I love children and have worked many years with all age groups as well as with adults. I have the patience and good disposition necessary to help you enjoy the musical experience.

The methods that I use while on a steady course with an accredited system will also include learning how to enjoy music, write music and read music. I have people who are devoted to music and who will have it in their lives always because of my guidance.

A Personal Note

My skills include many years of teaching and helping students become stronger and better equipped to face the best future that they can possibly reach. I have devoted my life to teaching people to read, study, write and perform well.

I have researched the many students that I have trained and I have developed quick and efficient ways to reach needed goals. I have tutored children in reading, writing and comprehension skills as well as contest preparation and test taking.

I have also been involved in many public speaking and performance opportunities. When I was a young child I had the privilege of training in phonics and in eighth grade was reading at a college level.

When my family moved to another community while I was in the ninth grade I was placed in twelfth grade classes and while I did not have the emotional maturity I did have the intellectual ability. I have been concentrating on teaching music for the last few years and have also addressed a need in raising the skill levels in other subjects.

I have also spent time teaching children to prepare for tests. That led me into training others how to develop study skills to help them in lifelong pursuits. I am a writer and love to use stories with a good solid moral point.

I have devoted myself to helping children and young people as well as adults and have many references and connections to my community. I have been published in syndicated newspapers and I am currently a member of the American College of Musicians.

I have been listed in various Who's Who Publications such as Who's Who for Entrepreneurs and have even been listed in European publications. I believe that I have changed lives for the better and this gives me a strong drive and purpose to equip and strengthen others.

*** Lesson Details ***
I teach online with much success. You can stay in the comfort of your own home and I can teach your student as if I am right there. Give online a try and see if your student continues to grow musically.

My usual goal in a lesson is to promote thought and a natural interest in personal development.

1. I require that the students have the materials needed to get the best possible results I can suggest which ones are the best for the student. Materials are usually of minimal cost unless a student wants to do very serious training.

2. The first few minutes we go over their homework and decide if they need another week or if they are ready to move on. Most of the students can move on so I am going to give that scenario.

3. I then present a concept that will usually take some practice to master.

4. The last section is spent in going over what will be done in their own time.

I'll do my best to make sure that the student understands everything that is being presented to the best of their capacity.

Practice time is age appropriate and I am sensitive to the time constraints that are part of our society today.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Yamaha keyboard, bel canto vocal set up, computer, Luna acoustic guitar, classical guitar, lesson books.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have a guitar but students need their own instrument and will need books.

*** Specialties ***
I use touch therapy and associations as well as help people overcome stage fright. I also use Bel Canto in vocal training. In guitar I can teach up to early advanced. On piano and vocal I can take children 7 and up male or female. I use positive reinforcement. I have innovative programs that stimulate and rejuvenate.

Ruth G. Brooksville, FL

Subjects Taught

Music Theory, Organ, Piano

About Me

I started taking lessons from a private tutor by age 8 and progressed to playing for church by age 13 and added weddings and other occasions by the age of 16. After marriage I began attending a church in Maryland with my new husband and played for them for all services for 10 years, then moved on to another church nearby for 7 years for all services, teaching piano lessons to 26 students and playing for all occasions as I took on a southern gospel group playing and singing for local churches in the try state area. In my working career I played for Cardinal Gibbons school for their masses, graduations and other ceremonies. I now play in Florida for a local church as a paid musician for 6 years and now fill in as a substitute for a larger church while teaching piano lessons. Again I am involved with a southern gospel group traveling locally giving concerts upon request. It is the most enjoyable profession to play for young as well as the elderly seeing smiles on their faces along with them joining you in song and satisfaction. My hope is that I can pass along the gifts that I've been blessed with and teach as many students so they can too pass on their talents making people happy!

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid back piano teacher and will teach you at your own pace. There is so many things to enjoy from lessons with recitals to play in front of your family to add to your self esteem and take you into new levels of joy from the piano. The John Thompson books are my favorite and the Bach exercises are beautifully written and such a help to help you play fluently. After 3 or 6 months you will know your scales, chords and pretty songs to play for your own enjoyment and you will be pleased with your progress to play for others to listen also. If you choose to keep all learning private and prefer not to play in front of others this too will be honored.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons with full keyboard with seating available for parents/spouses or family members.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will bring my accordion for them to view and try if they aren't sure they want to purchase one, notebooks to sell, highlighters, pencils (free), stickers and awards. A church to hold recitals.
Buy their own books online or at a music store of their choice, have their own instrument ready and a notebook with writing tools or they can buy them from me.

*** Specialties ***
Evangelistic, Honky Tonk, Classical, Country. Ear Phonics, music theory.

Joshua L. Saint Petersburg, FL

Subjects Taught

Drum, Music Recording, Music Theory, Percussion, Piano

About Me

I have been playing music since I was 9 years old. I studied piano with Robin Kaplan, Mark Evans, Lee Shaw, and Dr. Gary Bush. In 2004 I completed a Bachelors of Arts degree in Music Composition and Production from the Purchase Conservatory at Purchase College in West Chester, NY. Recently I completed a very successful tour as pianist for the United States Marine Corps Band, based in Cherry Point, NC. My performance experience includes jazz, R&B, reggae, classical, rock, funk, country, and DCI style marching band. I am very inspired by the vast world of music and I encourage my students to explore many genres of music in their studies.

*** Lesson Details ***
I approach music instruction with a very open mind. I am a pretty laid back teacher, despite my Marine Corps training. I find that students who enjoy what they are learning are much more likely to practice and succeed. From the first lesson I reinforce strong technique, practice habits and ear training within the context of students' interests. I also work to expand students' musical world with many take home listenings. In the first 3-6 months students can expect to learn to read and write basic notes and rhythms, the origins of the instrument and the music written for it, and most importantly, students will learn to play some songs and build their repertoir. That, of course, is just the beginning of what is, hopefully, a life long fascination with music.

*** Studio Equipment ***
In my studio I have comfortable seating for parents, and upright piano, drumset, electric drumset, digital pianos, and computer with recording and playback capabilities.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide portable keyboards, laptop computer, and recording equipment. I expect piano students to have their own piano or keyboard and my drum students to have, at least a snare drum and/or practice pad.

Nicole C. Clearwater, FL

Subjects Taught

Bass Guitar, Drum, Guitar, Music Performance, Percussion, Piano, Singing, Songwriting

About Me

Nicole began her musical journey in Long Island, New York when she began piano lessons at age five. While receiving training on piano, she joined her elementary school orchestra in the 3rd grade and quickly soared with violin. During this period, Nicole began learning music theory and the art of reading music. As a fourth grader, Nicole would go on to conduct and tune every instrument in her orchestra during rehearsal. She always competed and won many NYSMA competitions for violin while attending music seminars and workshops. It was then that her teacher realized she had a gift. Nicole continued with piano lessons and began teaching herself guitar. Later, after college, she bought herself a drum set and began to teach herself drums.
As an adult, Nicole studied to become an elementary teacher and worked in the New York State School Districts for over five years. Shortly after receiving her master€™s degree for Literacy Education, Nicole decided to attempt to share her passion for music. In 2007, Nicole opened a music studio in Holbrook, New York. Here, she refined her music teaching skills while establishing Nicolex Inc. Music Island as a leading source of quality music education. Her summer traveling music program allowed her students to experience live performances as well as create music groups with peers with the same passion for music.
Nicole now resides in Clearwater, Florida with hopes to spread her business as well as the joy of music to children and adults. She currently is the drummer for a local original rock band. In this band, Nicole writes songs, sings, plays piano, and drums (not all at the same time). Needless to say, she understands the importance that music has had in her life and wishes to ignite that passion in other music lovers.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching style is best labeled as kind but firm. I take my job very seriously and want wholeheartedly for my students to have music as a part of their life, not just a part of their day. I love to laugh and have fun but I will definitely expect my students to practice and complete any homework I assign and be prepared for the following lesson. Simply stated, music is fun and the love of my life, but if I still practice, you will as well. Otherwise, I always believe in teaching songs my students are interested in and will expand their musical skills. My experience as a public school teacher had enhanced my sense of finding individual needs of every student. Therefore, I always differentiate lessons to suit my students interest while teaching them the foundations every musician needs in order to be successful. My specialty is teaching a variety of instruments. I play drums, guitar, bass, piano, and sing as well. So, if one instrument is not for you, I can teach you something different without a problem. Long story short, friends, you are in good hands.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Full Service music room: Keyboard, drum kit, Acoustic/Electric Guitar, Electric Guitar with 30 watts Amp and Microphone/ vocal monitor.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can bring a 61 key Casio Keyboard for household to use for lessons for a small monthly rental fee. I have an acoustic/electric Spectrum Guitar with 30w amplifier. Can also bring microphone and monitor for vocal lessons.

*** Specialties ***
I have taught mostly Rock, Blues, and Classical genres for Piano, Guitar, Drums. Vocally, I specialize in R&B, Broadway, Pop, Top 100 and alternative/Hard Rock. I will adapt to your needs.
