About Me

Jill holds a Bachelor's degree in Music Education and has master's work in choral music. For many years she has taught private and group music lessons to all ages and many varying styles of singing and instrumental music. Her lessons are unlike the ones she remembers from childhood; Jill's lessons are full of creativity, fun and excitement. It is amazing how students improve with each lesson. Jill brings more than just technique to the studio, she strives to find the best in each student and then concentrates on improving each individual's strengths and then delves into ways to correct the weaknesses.

Since Jill is a vocal soloist, instrumentalist, accompanist and director, she knows what it takes to prepare and rehearse and therefore she makes it clear which concept the student will be working on during the lesson. With an instrumental and choral background, Jill brings music to life and then shares with the students how to keep music in their lives forever. Many students who had vocal problems have achieved vocal success after taking several lessons with Jill and learning to keep their voices healthy for the rest of their lives.

Jill has worked with children, teens and adults in many schools, churches and after school programs that she designed. Her success with students who are very young or students who come with disabilities or autistic spectrum diagnosis are moved by the music Jill creates. With the help of the ORFF-SCHULWERK certification, Jill has many ways of reaching children through the use of instruments, rhythm activities, games and other fun ways of learning. Breaking barriers is Jill's best asset, she will not quit until the student has an understanding of the instrument or his/her voice.

The young and the older adults find that taking lessons with Jill has brought them to a place of realizing their potential. Successful stories include pre-school age through students who are retired. The length of time one studies depends on the student's practice and diligence. Many students have started with Jill in preschool or elementary school and have continued through high school and college. Several college age students wanted to improve their singing or instrumental skills so goals were set and met through Jill's successful teaching ability.

Many of Jill's students have become better musicians and many have chosen music professions for their careers. Several students have won contests, auditioned for parts in musicals, started local bands and have become songwriters and performers after taking lessons with Jill.

"Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers, plans succeed. " (Proverbs 15:22) It is Jill's belief that with her teaching qualifications and past record of success with student achievement and great experience studying with wonderful advisers, teaching YOU or YOUR CHILD will be one of success!

*** Lesson Details ***
Jill's teaching technique is flexible. Some students require a stern and strict approach while others seem to work best with more creative license. Jill is open to each student's needs. When booking lessons with Jill, one will find that the first thing she will do is find out more about the student's needs and desires to succeed in their chosen instrument.

Because of her flexible approach, method books vary depending on the student's need to succeed. Sometimes young students will need to review several beginning methods until their reading skills are achieved. For the young students, Jill teaches theory and gives the young students time during the lesson to explore musical symbols and try their hands at improvisation, rhythms, manuscripts and creativity.

Some students may desire to learn to play "by ear" or through improvisational skills. Jill is very good with improv and her song writing skills are strong. When a student desires to write music, Jill is there to help with questions about time signatures, note values, key signatures and transpositions.

Taking lessons with Jill is a journey that those who have tried have not had regrets. Several parents and past students would be happy to tell you how their talents and gifts improved after working with Jill for a few months. After three months of working together, Jill will know how to pursue the student's musical career. After 6 months the student will be able to play complete songs and have a sense of basic music theory. The hope is for the student to be confident of their instrument's abilities.

Several of Jill's students have taken their skills, gifts and talents to the professional level. Students who have studied with Jill are professional music directors in high schools, middle schools, elementary schools, churches, soloists and some who are in school studying music as their major. Taking lessons with Jill will be something that will add value to the student's life forever because MUSIC is her life! Without music, the world would be a very dull place and individuals would be unhappy and depressed in every walk of life. Music brings out the beauty of creation and man's ability to skillfully play an instrument for pleasure or for one's occupation.

Jill plays most instruments including piano, guitar, bass guitar, band instruments, ukulele, banjo, dulcimer, drums and violin. Jill enjoys many styles of music and she has played with many bands and groups throughout her musical career. She is a full time musician, music teacher and music director.

About Me

I've been teaching private lessons for over a decade now. First I taught lessons as a self-employed college student, and then my during graduate studies I worked through a music academy in Dallas. I've been playing piano for over 20 years and guitar and drums for 15. I've been in various bands, personally recorded several albums of my own compositions, and have taught students from ages 7-17 consistently. I teach part time as a high school teacher in the area and I enjoy helping young people learn, whether it's guitar, piano, drums, or even psychology

I'm very laid back when it comes to lessons, but I do expect students to spend at least 90 minutes weekly practicing so our lessons will be productive. I generally use either Alfred or Suzuki for piano lessons, and various Hal Leonard method books for guitar and drums depending on students needs and expectations for learning.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons will be in my music room which has a 88-key weighted keyboard, amps and various guitars.

Drum, Percussion

About Me

I started playing the drums at the age of ten and have been playing for thirty-three years. I played snare drum and bass drum in symphonic band in junior high and high school. I played in the Drum and Bugle Corps while in the Air Force. We marched in parades and won several awards for excellence. I have played in three Christian bands and one rock band. I have also played drum kit and percussion in church for several years. I completed the Drum Set Fundamentals course with Berklee College of Music in 2012. I am currently playing for a Christian rock band and we play live at different venues in Central Florida. I am currently enrolled at Valencia Community College working towards my music performance degree.

This real world experience of playing with live musicians in different settings allows me to show students how to sound great and play skillfully when playing the drum kit.Whether you have dreams of playing in a touring rock band, playing in church, or just jam out with your favorite songs, I can help you reach your drumming goals.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am very passionate about teaching others how to play the drums. This is why my drum studio is called "Groove With Passion." I take teaching very seriously and I enjoy watching the transition of a beginner go from not knowing how to hold the drumsticks to playing along to music. I am very patient and am able to show students several different approaches to play grooves and fills. I am a very positive person and will get just as excited as my student when they learn what I am teaching them. I work with my students until they "get it." And that is a wonderful feeling. A good teacher inspires their students to learn and grow. That is exactly what I strive to do.

My teaching involves using several different resources that will allow the student to become a well rounded drummer. This involves learning how to read music, playing rudiments, coordination between the hands and feet, proper drumset setup and tuning, and learning to play along to music. All of this while learning proper technique. Some of the different books that might be used include: Drumsense Vol. 1 and 2, Stick Control by George Stone, The Rock Drumming System, and others. Along with these I also utilize DVD's by Jo Jo Mayer, Steve Smith, and Tommy Igoe, and other top drummers.

I use the Drumsense teaching method. Drumsense is a structured learning program that teaches students how to start playing basic beats and then continue adding more coordination to advance these beats.

I am also a Hudson TIP (Teachers Integration Program) instructor. Hudson Music produces several teaching DVDs by some of the top drummers in the world. Utilizing this media allows for us to branch out and continue learning and growing as a drummer.

Learning to play an instrument should be fun and at the same time requires practice by the student. Within just a few lessons one should see some progress and as you continue to learn more advanced beats and fills, playing becomes even more fun.

Playing the drums is something that one can do for a lifetime. Whether your are eight or eighty, jamming out on a drumset is healthy, it is a great way to relieve stress, and will do wonders for your self-esteem.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I bring drumsticks, a practice pad, a metronome, and applicable teaching materials to each lesson. The student should have a functional drumkit or snare drum, depending on what instrument they are learning. They should also have their own practice pad, drumsticks, and a music stand. It is recommended for students to purchase a metronome or at least have a computer or cell phone with headphones to utilize an online metronome. Various books and other materials will need to be purchased as the student progresses with the curriculum and their playing skills advance.

*** Specialties ***
I teach rock, funk, country, basic jazz, and Christian music.
