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

Alicia B. Miami, FL

Subjects Taught

Dance, Music Performance, Music Theory, Piano, Viola, Violin

About Me

Alicia has been playing the violin since she can remember thanks to her very talented musical family. Because of their efforts she received her first exposure to loving and teaching music at an early age through attending and later assisting her mother's Suzuki string program. They also afforded her the opportunity to learn with some of the finest violin teachers Miami has to offer.
A proud alumni of Miami's public arts programs, including those of Southwood Middle School, Coral Reef Senior High and the Greater Miami Youth Symphony, Alicia encourages all of her school-age students to explore their options of participating in the various youth arts organizations in the community.
In addition to her 15+ years training in violin technique and classical repertoire, she also has had almost 10 years of classical piano instruction and has had the privilege to perform classical, jazz, blues, latin and pop music from coast to coast and in Europe.

*** Lesson Details ***
I have found that students thrive in a curriculum that's to their pace, fun and conducive to creative thought. So I'm a fairly easygoing teacher. I wont chew you out, won't force you to practice scales on your head while you hold your breath. But I will level with you: Music takes commitment. The good news? It's really fun.
So, let me show you the joy and reward of learning music!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living Room transferred to music room: piano, computer, music stand and library, parents can sit in on lesson

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect student to have instrument, music stand, any appropriate books, and tuner (or home access to computer/internet)

*** Specialties ***
A Suzuki method influenced program that introduces classical music and theory step-by-step while incorporating fun games and your favorite songs.
Will also drill you on music theory and help you nail your first audition and performance.

About Me

Welcome to my page! My name is Yunior Lopez and I'm a versatile musician who enjoys a diverse music career as a teacher, performer, and collaborator. I've been lucky enough to share the stage with some of the world's foremost classical and jazz musicians, as well as work with the next generation of artists. If you want to read more about me and my background, please visit my personal website at www.YuniorLopez.com

My main method of teaching revolves around habits, inspiration, and motivation. Whether we realize it or not, most of what we do in life are revolves around habits. If you're a beginner I'll guide you through proper setups and positions that work for you and your body, and will give you you exercises to help your muscles classify them as habits. To add, we'll also work on note reading and sound production, and you'll be playing in no time.

For those students in the intermediate to advanced levels - we'll analyze what stage you are with the instrument and where you want to go. My career revolves around performance at a professional level, and I've played music from a variety of genres, styles, and difficulty. I'll be sure to help you advance and get to where you want to go.

*** Lesson Details ***
Every student is different and have very different goals when it comes to music. Some will want to pursue it professionally and others just want to enjoy being a part of something special. With that said, I'll do my best to guide you to where you want to go. In addition, you'll never be short of my casual vibe, laughter, motivation, and patience.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide some technique and/or sheet of music, but can also recommend what and where to purchase. Students need their own music stands and instruments.

*** Specialties ***
Classical, Pop, New Music, Chamber Music

Janelle M. Miami, FL

Subjects Taught

Viola, Violin

About Me

I have loved music since I could walk. I began playing piano at age 5, which was an excellent introduction to music for me; I later chose to play the violin, which came to be my main instrument. Throughout middle and high school, I dedicated many hours to practicing and listening to the songs I was learning, both solo and orchestral. I also studied privately with my private teacher, Mr. Guangshu Song in South Florida.

I have learned the unique art of violin playing, performing at many orchestra concerts and solo and ensemble competitions, earning Superior ratings. I have played more recently with the Alhambra Orchestra in South Florida and I am committed to sharing my talent and love of music with kids and adults.

In addition, I have broadened the horizons of my violin playing to include pop genres and creating written arrangements of film soundtracks for stringed instruments.

*** Lesson Details ***
I specialize in beginning and intermediate instruction with students of all ages. My students learn how to read music, how to hold and play the violin with proper technique, correct bow hold, accurate rhythm and pitch. They are quickly able to develop their listening skills through the Suzuki method and through fun and interactive exercises. On each lesson I encourage and commend my students when they apply what they learn, and help them to develop confidence in their playing.

I encourage memorization, especially of songs that are well-known, so that the student can play for family and friends with confidence. Learning to play the violin well is a rewarding experience that involves determination and hard work. For young musicians, parents are encouraged to be involved in their child's musical growth.

If you enjoy music and the challenge of trying new things, you will most likely come to realize you have a talent you didn't know you had.

*** Specialties ***
My specialty is getting students to improve their tone quickly by effectively telling and showing them how to do it. They hear the results right away.
