About Me

I have a Master's Degree (2012) in teaching English to other language speakers, 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 fan of the Essential Elements 2000 for violin, viola or cello, 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 personalize every lesson, and always set goals for my students. Most of my violin students are members of the Florida Youth Orchestra and my piano students participate in Pompano Beach competition and the annual Piano Guild.
I teach any age and any level, and always stress that learning a new instrument is very similar to learning a new language, 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. However, music can give my students instant gratification by letting them 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 lessons include: technique: I am fan of Finger Power for piano students, and scales,
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 Elements2000 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 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 ***
Classical, traditional, Suzuki, Popular, Celtic, fiddle, Blues

Stephanie J. Miami, FL

Subjects Taught

Cello, Music Performance, Violin

About Me

I love to teach music as much as I love to perform.
Be sure to check out my photos and recordings!

I currently am a Graduate Teaching Assistant at FIU where I am completing my masters in music performance for cello.

As a young girl I began taking private piano lessons which eventually led me to participate in the string program at my Elementary School. Not knowing anything about string instruments I was handed a Cello by the Conductor, and I've been playing ever since!
I joined the local symphony GMYS (Greater Miami Youth Symphony) throughout my high school career which not only boosted my orchestral playing but was a great motivation to continue playing.
In the midst of my college career I became inspired to share my knowledge of music with young and adult students.
My goal as a teacher is to motivate and inspire students with music whether they're beginning or advanced players, and of any age.

Some well known performance I've done:
-The 2011 Zumba conference in Orlando, with Artist Wyclef.
-Univision performing with such names as Cristian Castro on Sabado Gigante, and on the Cristina show.
As well as on Nuestro Navidad 2012.
-In 2005 I performed with GMYS at Carnegie Hall in New York.

*** Lesson Details ***
Every student works at a different pace, so I like to create a study plan unique to each student that will provide the best results. I like to challenge the students and emphasize critical thinking.
It's not enough to simply tell the students what's correct or not, but to help them understand why.
From beginning to advanced students, we will work on proper technique, musicality, and efficient practicing.
I want to show students and parents the joy behind music, but there are no shortcuts, motivation is a must!

*** Studio Equipment ***
All you need is the instrument and books!
I have a music stand

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have a music stand, so make sure to bring the music!
A metronome and Tuner is essential.

*** Specialties ***
Classical Technique for a classical instruments. Once you learn the technique, you can play any style you enjoy, not limited to classical music.

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 ***

Will also drill you on music theory and help you nail your first audition and performance.

Walter H. Pompano Beach, FL

Subjects Taught

Bass Guitar, Cello, Clarinet, Classical Guitar, French Horn, Guitar, Music Performance, Music Theory, Saxophone, Trumpet, Violin

About Me

Professional guitarist/vocalist since 1976. Performed in Rock bands, Show Bands, Calypso bands, Jazz bands, and, yes, Wedding Bands. I have performed as a solo guitarist for wedding ceremonies, art shows, and other private functions. I have also performed on the trumpet and saxophone in bands, and on the violin and cello for wedding ceremonies.
Private guitar and bass instructor since 1984; Orchestral strings instructor since 1988.
My students benefit from my professional experience in that they focus directly on what is necessary as a performer and don't waste time on strictly theoretical exercises.

*** Lesson Details ***
When students take lessons from me I take some time to get to know their reasons for wanting to play the instrument and who their favorite artists/bands are. That way I can gear the lessons towards their interests which keeps them motivated and helps them relate what they're learning to "real-world" music.
I try to make the learning of music and technique as much fun as possible using challenges and games.
I base my lessons on a research based curriculum called "Jump right In" where students will eventually learn to "hear" the music they are reading the same way one hears the words they are reading in a book. Then, based on their age and interests, I use whatever instrumental technique books I feel are best suited for that particular individual.
After 3-6 months guitar students should be able to read and play basic chord progressions and simple single note melodies both by ear and by using standard music notation. This will mostly be in first position.
Similarly, Bass students should be able to read and play bass lines that fit basic chord progressions, and be able to play simple single note melodies in first position.
String students should have basic control of the bow and be able to read and play simple melodies by ear and by using standard music notation on at least 3 strings in first position.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I provide an amplifier, sound system, chairs, music stands, Keyboard with rhythm section, and a computer with a vast selection of music for listening and performing.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide supplemental materials, my own guitar and music stand and an Mp3 recorder to record lessons.
I expect students to purchase a method book, their own instrument, a music stand and a tuner.

*** Specialties ***
I am familiar with most band and string methods as well as the Gordon/Grunow "Jump Right In" method.
I perform in all styles from Classical to Calypso and everything in between.

Marcella E. Fort Lauderdale, FL

Subjects Taught

Music Performance, Music Theory, Viola, Violin

About Me

I have my bachelors in Music Education. I have received the highest honors in state competitions and I have had the pleasure of working with some of the top university orchestras in the southeast, including the University of South Florida Symphony Orchestra and the University of Tampa Orchestra. I have also been fortunate enough to study with some of the great nationally and internationally known Suzuki instructors, whose knowledge and techniques I will share with my students. When I am not teaching, I enjoy music making in my community. But what I enjoy most is being able to teach the delight of music making to my students

My hope is to provide an educational environment that fosters the artistic, intellectual, and personal growth of my students and prepare them to embark on successful careers and productive lives as artists and citizens. I believe that every child should be given an avenue of expression and the access to responsible, well-trained, and compassionate individuals who can aid and guide their artistic development. As a teacher, I feel that it is my duty to continuously elevate my educational and artistic standards and supply my students with the sensitivity to admire and appreciate education, hard-work, and the human-spirit.

*** Lesson Details ***
Each lesson will contain four (4) elements:
1. Technique development
2. Ear and Rhythmic training
3. Music theory
4. Performance

All elements are taught in fun and exciting ways that will keep you motivated and enthused! I am interested in teaching students of all ages and levels, it doesn't matter if you are just curious about the violin or viola and this has always been something you wanted to explore, or if you plan on becoming a professional as well. I know that everyone has a different learning style so I make sure to develop a curriculum a suites my students, making sure that certain goals and benchmarks are reached. This will be a lesson that you will look forward to having every week!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Home-a designated music room, music stands, library of music, sitting area for parents
Studio- private practice rooms, an upright piano, music stands

*** Travel Equipment ***
At first I will provide the sheet music and method book, so the student and I can discuss the materials/pieces we will be using in their lesson but then the student must purchase their own. I expect the student to have their own music stand and metronome/tuner, rosin, and shoulder rest, instrument.

*** Specialties ***
*Teachers classified as a Student Favorite have taught a minimum of 25 lessons and have received the highest feedback rating from students.I mainly teach classical violin and viola using the Suzuki Method and other traditional methods. However, I do incorporate other genres as well, such as jazz, salsa, and fiddle tunes into my instruction.

Violin Lessons in Miami, FL

Learning to play the violin is extremely popular as a first or second instrument for students of all ages. This is probably because of the instrument's versatility, as well as the beauty of its sound. And with the right teacher, it’s easy to get started learning to play!

It can be difficult to begin learning the violin alone, due to the importance of posture, technique and other aspects that can only be taught by a qualified instructor. Similarly, intermediate students often experience problems that are hard to rectify, or struggle to learn new skills such as the different hand positions, vibrato and harmonics. Taking private violin lessons can make a huge difference, and TakeLessons is here to help!
