About Me

Born and raised in Connecticut, I now reside in Central Florida. After receiving my initial training as a young child and becoming serious as a teenager, he went on to study music at North Texas University School of Music. Shortly after, I went on to study orchestration and arranging under Don Sebesky and later studied voice with pop music icon Michael Bolton. My musical background and the importance I give to music education is easily discernible from the moment you meet me. If you want to sing, play, or perform above all the rest then you've reached the right instructor!

About Me

I am an accomplished performing musician that has experience playing many different instruments in multiple styles. I believe first and foremost that learning music should be fun and exciting with an emphasis on self exploration and communication. It's these qualities in my own musicianship that have helped me grow a true love of music and have pushed my career forward as a performer.

*** Lesson Details ***
In lessons I use a shifting curriculum that is made to work with the needs of each individual student. I firmly believe in the importance of learning to read music and learning some basic music theory, in my experience this helps the student grow from being able to reproduce the music of others to eventually developing a unique style and sound. After three to six months my beginning level students typically feel comfortable enough to play with other musicians confidently.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The In-Studio lessons take place in the living room seating and a guitar are available. 1 cat and 1 small dog kept separate during lessons.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide all of the necessary educational tools such as listening samples, and printed off hand outs. The student needs to have their own instrument, staff paper and a pencil.

About Me

I am a music educator. I received my Bachelor’s in Music Education from the University of Central Florida in 2011.
My higher education started in the Fall of 2006 when I began attending Daytona Beach Community College. My two years there were spent fully engaged in all activities. I finished my GED requirements while participating in many ensembles like the Ormond Beach Symphony Orchestra, Daytona Beach Community College Concert Band, Brass Ensemble, Falcon Pans (steel drum ensemble), Pit Orchestra for musicals, and Choir. All of these ensembles helped me increase my awareness of many different teaching and directing styles. I enjoyed participating in the college’s annual Medieval Yuletide Feast while playing the trombone, tuba, and singing in the choir. These experiences augmented my ability to manage my time while having the opportunity to go to school.
Almost every summer since 2005 my church has help send me to Port-du-paix, Haiti, for two weeks at a time. There we are encouraged to do many things involving teaching children, feeding the elderly and needy, and meeting new people that have made a difference in each of our lives. One of the opportunities I had during the summer of 2006 was helping teach two rehearsals of a small brass ensemble. The teacher who was heading the project had brought many donated instruments with her from Kentucky, and distributed them to the students prior to my arrival. She didn't know much about brass instruments (saxophonist), so I got to step in and take the players aside to teach the basics. Even though there was a language barrier, I was able to communicate using hand gestures, my little knowledge of Creole, and the universal language of music. This was one of the best times I have had in my life.
Another great accomplishment I have had is being a contra player in the Teal Sound Drum and Bugle Corps for the 2008 season. This opportunity ensured my discipline to tough through hard. The sole act of carrying a brass instrument that weighs over 25 lbs around all summer is a difficult task, but I had a lot of fun doing it. I also got to meet many people all over the United States that play the same instrument I do and have a similar life as mine. We had the overall score of fifth place, but our hard work and perseverance is obvious in our finals performance video.
I am a proud sister of Sigma Alpha Iota. I have held important positions including Corresponding Secretary and have headed many chair positions. The sisters of Zeta Tau are a very supportive group full of diversity. Having our weekly meetings and formal business meetings keep me up to date with Robert’s Rules of Order. I have transferred the things I have learned from these meetings to other organizations like CMENC. At the time when I was leaving the college level, I receive the Sword of Honor from our province officer. Every Spring I attend FMEA in Tampa. I made many very important connections with other educators and soon to be educators.
I also taught three years at a Title I elementary school in Osceola County, FL. It was a very tough three years, but I am grateful for all of the strategies and steps I've learned to make me a better teacher. In my second year at the school, I received the honor of being voted Teacher of the Year for our school. That was such a humbling time in my career.

*** Lesson Details ***
Expect to be engaged in learning. That said, I love teaching, and I will work hard to motivate you. Improvement only comes when you've put in the effort, and I'll hold you to that.
Each lesson is personalized, depending on the individual (vocational/ avocational).

*** Studio Equipment ***
Main Room Music: piano, two row of buttons on her accordion, she has all instruments, parents can sit in on lesson, chairs, one couch

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide music stands. The student must either buy the music on his/her own or purchase it from me. I would contact the parent or student prior to the lesson.

*** Specialties ***
I am a certified music teacher in the state of Florida k-12 (ESOL Certified). When it comes to the instruments I teach, my specialization is low brass (I am a tuba player), and the rest I have taught up to an intermediate level.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a very patient teacher, I love when my students say, "I'm understanding everything", I repeat 100 times until my students learn clear ideas and concepts. It's very important enjoy the class and have fun.

students will learn methods of improvisation, phrasing, scales, chords, rhythms, Favorite songs, fretboard mastery, and sound conception that are essential guitar techniques.

Many beginning guitarists have learned the basics of open and moveable chord shapes, but aren't sure how or why the individual notes within the chord work so well together, or the ways by which they can expand this chord knowledge to unlock the fret board of the guitar.

Scale study is a fundamental building block to guitar mastery. Accomplished guitarists use scales to add color, mood, depth and feeling to their playing.

About Me

Many years of professional playing, across the country as well as abroad, combined with my knack for breaking down and explaining guitar technique, enables me to offer an effective, as well as fun method of learning the instrument.
Lessons are tailored to each student, with the priority being learning music YOU like, to keep you interested and ready to advance. You can learn to read music, but it's not mandatory (I encourage it, but you can still become a great player without it). If you just want to learn your favorite songs, or get started learning what it takes to shred on the guitar, we can do that.

I'm also experienced with studio and composition work (I composed and produced a bunch of instrumental rock and techno tracks for "Digital Juice", a big time company in Ocala, and was half of a production team that scored a 30 minute video for SeaDoo sport boats, through "Florida Film and Tape").

*** Specialties ***
Rock, metal, blues, funk, reggae, country, pop

Nicholas M. Winter Park, FL

About Me

I provide instruction, assistance, and tutoring to all levels of Electric Bass Guitar and Music Theory. I can also teach entry level guitar as well.

I believe that that essence of music education should be fun, entertaining, and thought provoking, while at the same time providing a positive and charming atmosphere for the student to learn in, which invokes strong and efficient learning ability. Discussion and questions are always welcome, and I always work at the pace of the student,

It's my job as a teacher to have the tools to help enhance and nurture a student's musical ability in their chosen area of interest(s), not oppress a concrete template method for all students without accommodation to learning patterns or tendencies of the student.

My lessons are set up to accommodate a student's skill level and learning. I adjust my curriculum to support the student's interests and goals to help them grow and further their abilities in music practice, and theory, simultaneously.

--Studio--

The studio is a quiet, large room with access to a piano, and music literature for reference and study. Bass amplification is provided for if need be. STUDENT MUST HAVE THEIR OWN INSTRUMENT.

--My Professional Background--

I have been a professional bass player for 8 years, and have been playing for 16 years.

I started out self taught as a bassist and guitarist playing heavier styles of music such as heavy metal and alternative rock when I was young. I eventually grew to adapt to more increasingly informative, and positive styles of music such as Funk, Jazz, and Latin/World music in pursuit of absolute proficiency on the electric bass guitar, and in music in general.
Currently, I can read and write music fluently, and have played in many Jazz Ensembles, Combos, Rock/Metal Bands, Cover Bands, Jam Bands, and the like over the last ten years as a bassist and backup singer. I have also arranged music for Jazz Big Band, and composed music for Solo Piano, Trio, String Quartet, and Choir in Classical method.
