About Me

I have 15 years of musical experience studying jazz and classical composition with Grammy nominated recording artists as well as a brief stint with the University of Miami Youth Guitar Orchestra. I am currently a working performer that plays around the South Florida Area in various musical projects (Nixa) and cover bands (Franklin's Wheel). In addition to my guitar and bass playing skills, I am an experienced music producer who holds a certificate of completion as an Electronic Music Producer at the SAE Audio Engineering Institute in North Miami Beach, FL.

Currently, I am an active recording, writing, and producing musician within the South Florida area in various bands and other production projects as well as providing lessons to students throughout the South Florida area.

*** Lesson Details ***
Student's can expect a very laid back and relaxed disposition from my self as I try to focus on my student's specific goals and aspirations. The curriculum is dependent on the student's specific needs but we will always initially focus on technique, articulation, and basic music theory (depending on one's level) as to help bridge the gap between learning the technique of playing the instrument and knowing what to do with that technique. Other focal points of my lessons include: Different styles/genres of music (Rock, Jazz, Country), notational/site reading skills, and more. Once a base is set and these particular skills continued to be honed it sets the groundwork and base where they can improve upon their technique and performance skills at their own rate. Taking guitar lessons with me, we will try and cover all of these aspects of playing to ultimately to help you achieve the goal of being the guitar/bass player YOU want to be.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The In-Studio lessons take place in a separate room which has been converted into a music studio including 3 amps, several types of guitars, two basses and a computer work station. If you can not bring your own instrument you may use one of mine, but it is highly recommended that you do own your own for practice purposes.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will bring my own guitar to lessons I travel to, and students are required to have their own instrument as I will not provide one for out of studio lessons. Thank you for understanding.

*** Specialties ***
I listen to a wide range of music and feel anyone that wants to play music should try to as well, as to establish a wide palate of inspiration where they can draw upon it and apply it to their own work in progress. In addition to my guitar and bass playing, I'm an experienced music producer who holds a certificate of completion as an Electronic Music Producer at the SAE Audio Engineering Institute in North Miami Beach, FL. Currently I am an active recording, writing, and producing musician playing guitar and bass within the South Florida area in various bands while keeping busy with other production projects and providing lessons to the south Florida area.

About Me

For my tutoring sessions I use skills that include goal-directedness, I teach how to organize learning in small steps and how to set them up; I always strive to motivate and engage my students to make the learning interesting and fun; I also use self-control skills to teach how to avoid distractions and I use different focusing strategies. I use positive mind set skills to teach how to use failures as a learning opportunities.

I have a Master's Degree (2012) in teaching English to speakers of other languages, and Bachelors in Music Education (2010), both from Florida Atlantic University, as well as degree in violin performance from Poland.
I studied piano in Poland for 10 years & taught both piano & violin for over 20 years. I also teach flute & cello for the past 5 years, as I studied them during my Music Education program.

I teach music for over 24 years using the traditional and Suzuki methods. I am a fan of the Essential Elements 2000 for string instruments, and the Alfred's Piano Library for piano. Alfred's piano library can be used for any age as they also have books especially made for adult learners. I also like their music flash cards.
For teaching music theory I mostly used Master Theory.

I personalize every lesson, and always set goals for my students. Most of my violin students are members of the Florida Youth Orchestra as well as Gold Coast Youth Orchestra and my piano students participate in Pompano Beach competition and the annual Piano Guild auditions.
I teach any age and any level, and always stress that learning a new instrument is very similar to learning a new language, it needs a lot of patience, persistence and repetitions. My lessons are customized to my students needs, and are work in progress as they needs may change over time. I always remind my students that music can give them instant gratification when they learn to play favorite songs.
I always encourage my students to tell me about their music preferences, so I can incorporate them in their music lessons.

*** Lesson Details ***
All my tutoring sessions include reviews of previously learned material and if possible the use of technology. I use students books but often bring extra study materials if necessary.
All my lessons include: technique: I like to use the Finger Power for piano students and Essential Elements for my string students, and scales for both.
music theory: I use Master Theory or other books such as Hal Leonard's Piano Note spellers & Piano Music Theory books for younger ages, music flash cards to support learning notes and musical terminology, and of course the fun part performance.

Besides Essential Elements 2000 for strings I also use String Tunes and Fiddle Runners to add more fun to the lessons. For piano students I use Holiday Treats book, which comes in 2 different levels: Beginner & Intermediate, so my students have a new songs for a specific holiday.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I always bring violin with me to be able to show what I teach.

*** Travel Equipment ***
The students needs to have their books and assigned material ready for tutoring. Instrumental students needs to have their music books & instrument available as well as a pencil. I always stress with my students to be organized and prepared for their lesson, this way they will be able to focus better during the lesson. I bring my violin with me. I also ask that the room where the lesson takes place to be free of any distractions, such other siblings or any other noise. The quiet environment helps in faster learning.

*** Specialties ***
I tutor most K-12 subjects and prepare students to take ACT, SAT, GRE tests.
Music genres: Classical, traditional, Suzuki, Popular, Celtic, fiddle, Blues

Nicole K. Dania, FL

Subjects Taught

Classical Voice, Country Singing, Ear Training, Gospel Singing, Jazz Voice, Music Performance, Music Theory, Opera Voice, Singing, Speaking Voice, Vocal Training

About Me

My name is Nicole but you can call me Nikki! Here's a little about me and what I've accomplished.

My Background:
I have been singing since the age of four! I am a native of Miami Beach Florida. I started performing in church and school where my passion for performing were developed. Having come from such a background I was privileged with a well rounded musical tastes, from Gospel in church Classical in school, and Reggae, Pop, Rock, and R&B from her parents. In performing in contests and local shows I learned a lot about stage presence and can share that with my students as well. I earned my bachelor's in Studio Music and Jazz Voice at the University of Miami and Minored in Music Business. At UM I had the opportunity to study with critically acclaimed Jazz musicians and artists such as Kevin Mahogany, Kurt Elling and John Secada. Since earning my degree I've worked with the Florida Grand Opera in their production of Aida, also sang background vocals for Gloria Estefan and Michael Buble. I currently perform around South Florida at various hot spots with my self titled band! So those who teach can do too!

My main objective as a performer is to effectively and skillfully entertain a variety of audiences to the best of my ability using the knowledge that I have attained from my experiences as a student and as an entertainer, and in turn work for an established business in the music industry and become a successful artist.

My objective as an educator is to not only teach my students about music but allowing them to grow and flourish as performers and as musicians, with proper technique the skies the limit!

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching style is pretty laid back and fun, it will take work and dedication on the part of my students to work on the new skills and techniques they will be learning under my direction. In the first 2 months we will focus on technique, meaning breathing exercises, vowel placements, warm ups, and execution of a song of the students choice, by the third month these exercises would have improved your vocals ability tremendously we can then work on stylizing for the particular genre your interested in singing in. Each student will have a personally tailored lesson plan to better help them in their goals to be a better singer and performer. I do prefer students in the age ranges 12 and up, only because the voice hasn't fully developed yet to do extensive vocalizing but with younger students we can focus on breathing, warming up properly and theory, which is so important at a young age and will better assist you especially when it comes to developing your ears. If you're wanting to learn to sing in different styles without losing your voice or hurting yourself I'm the teacher for you!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Keyboard in living Room: couches and chairs, parents can sit in on lesson

*** Travel Equipment ***
Keyboard should be provided by student, I will provide mic and amp

*** Specialties ***
Pop, Rock, R&B, Jazz Styles are my specialties.

Subjects Taught

Acting, Classical Voice, Finnish, German, Italian, Jazz Voice, Musical Theater, Music Performance, Music Theory, Opera Voice, Singing, Swedish, Vocal Training

About Me

I am passionate about music and singing. I have sung professionally on stages all over the world for 30 years, singing 70 roles in 10 different languages. I was the Principal Mezzo Soprano at the Finnish National Opera, a European A-house in Helsinki, Finland, (over 500 employees) for 25 years. My American Debut was at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in Los Angeles. My other great passion is teaching voice. It is wonderful to experience the joy that a student feels after finding his/her voice and starting to improve his/her performance.
By now I've worked as a voice teacher for 15 years, well familiar with both European and American voices.
I have a Master's degree in Music, including performance and teaching. I have had additional education in Complete Vocal Technique, which familiarizes me with Pop-, rock,- jazz-, and country singing techniques.My students include both beginners and professionals. I can teach you both to sing like an opera diva, and to belt and sound like a pop diva. For me, the basics are important. I want you to learn proper breathing, support, relaxation and interpretation. With a good foundation, you have a technique that lasts a lifetime.

I am very serious about what I do, and I expect my students to be equally serious in their work. With all this said, expect to learn a lot with me, but also expect to have lots of fun doing it.

You will have better singing for a better life!

About Me

An American Board Certified Dentist, Head and Neck surgical resident.
I am an overseas trained Dentist and Surgeon. After I graduated from Dental School I started residency specializing in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. Now I just cleared my Board Exams in the US to become a licensed specialist here.
I have been giving private lessons since I was in dental school. I have experience for more than 7 years now with a wealth of resources and experiences at my disposal. I have been involved in teaching Immunology, Pathology, and Human Anatomy to undergraduates and capable of teaching both clinical & basic medical sciences in both English and Arabic.
Teaching has always been a passion of mine, I have taught Biology and Arabic to people of all ages, and I have efficient teaching methods and mnemonics to simplify difficult topics so they can be better understood.
I have helped teenagers prepare for their GCSE and A-Level exams as I have graduated with an IGCSE diploma from high school. I have worked with high ability students to ensure A grades, and borderline students to ensure a good pass. I firmly believe that with the right guidance and the right effort, any student can achieve the grade they need to succeed.
Currently living in Plantation, but I am flexible with traveling.
