At Rollins, Nicole studied piano with Dr. Gloria Cook, and has received training in classical, as well as Latin and jazz styles. Nicole has studied classical guitar for seven years and especially enjoys playing a repertoire of boleros and flamenco.

She has published research in the Rollins Undergraduate Research Journal, where she also served as Music and Anthropology Editor for three years.

Nicole has performed with the Rollins College Bach Festival Society Orchestra, sharing the stage with multiple Grammy Award winner and guitarist, Sharon Isbin.

*** Lesson Details ***
I was five years old when I discovered my singing voice. My youthful curiosity soon blossomed into a passion for musical expression through voice, violin, piano, and guitar. Now, my mission is to share the musical exploration that has enriched my life by fostering my students' desires to express themselves through music.

As a teacher, I focus equally on formal technique and artistic expression. Mastering correct form provides the foundation upon which a student’s capacity for the latter may grow. Techniques used during lessons are designed to develop a holistic understanding of music through aural, visual, and tactile cues. These include ear training, sight-reading, improvisation and using touch and visualization to navigate the instrument. Progress is evaluated by developing a set of goals specific to each student. I find that allowing students input in originating goals facilitates a cooperative learning environment and allows me to tailor lessons to a student's interests, strengths and learning preferences. Providing students with a plan to succeed inspires a drive to learn and sense of achievement. I encourage students to play their instruments daily. Through consistent practice, students will benefit from increased discipline, patience, creativity and self-esteem. Students are rewarded with the chance to share what they've learned at recitals held biannually. My philosophy is that mistakes are opportunities for improvement. For the duration of our lesson, my students are in a private, nurturing zone of free expression. Join me in an exploration of personal talent and creativity!

Sharon H. Orlando, FL

Subjects Taught

Fiddle, Violin

About Me

Been playing the violin for over 40 yrs. Started in elementary school and held the coveted "Concert Master" designation all through high school. Been playing fiddle since 1985. Twenty years experience as a dance fiddler, and the last several years studying swing and traditional Irish. I play in three bands, all different genres.
I consider myself so lucky to be blessed to be playing an instrument. It is one of the best kept secrets to life. This is a point I like to stress to my students. It enhances your mind, you can make wonderful friendships with like minded people, and constantly learn new tunes and genres. It just keeps you young at heart. I love spreading the Gospel of music.I consider myself so lucky to be blessed to be playing an instrument. It is one of the best kept secrets to life. This is a point I like to stress to my students. It enhances your mind, you can make wonderful friendships with like minded people, and constantly learn new tunes and genres. It just keeps you young at heart. I love spreading the Gospel of music. I am very patient and will teach my students everything I've learned over the past 40 years.

*** Lesson Details ***
I give 30 minute and 60 minute lessons. I recommend 30 minute lessons for beginners. I teach classical techniques for holding the instrument. Scales and intonation work are important, and can be integrated into simple songs so as not to be boring. Teach sight reading and auditory learning. Auditory is more important as Music is an auditory art. I am easy going and teach what the student wants to learn as everyone is on different levels and has different ways of learning. I also teach violin chords, and applied theory as to improvisation for playing. All skill levels welcome.

I use handouts from several different music books and will taylor them to your skill level. I do expect my students to find some time to practice what I give them. I really want my students to get all the bang they can for their buck

Yamilet T. Orlando, FL

Subjects Taught

Cello, Music Theory, Piano, Viola, Violin

About Me

Yamilet realized her love for music at the early age of 7, after singing along with children’s television shows and joining her elementary school chorus. She was also a member of the Orff ensemble and in the 4th grade began learning to play the violin. Using that background knowledge, she began to teach herself piano. In the 5th grade, she switched to cello. Although she has always had an insatiable curiosity with musical instruments (playing as many notes as she can figure out on harmonica, guitar, recorder, clarinet, double bass, viola and even water-filled glasses) she has stuck with the cello for almost 15 years.

Yamilet is a Dr. Phillips High School alum, where she was accepted into their Visual and Performing Arts Magnet Program. She graduated from the University of Central Florida with a Bachelors in Music Performance in 2010, studying with Barbara George and Laurel Stanton. She recently completed her Master of Arts degree in Music Performance. In that time, she performed with the UCF Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Dr. Laszlo Marosi, and was the principal cellist for over 5 years. She also played with the UCF Chamber Ensemble, String Ensemble, New Music Ensemble, and sang in the Women’s Chorus and Opera Workshop.

Locally, Yamilet plays regularly with the Space Coast Pops Orchestra under the direction of Richard Hayman, alongside guest artists including Carol Stein, Copeland Davis, and Valerie Pernice. She has also played alongside well-known artists/bands such as Jodi Benson, Maná, Kansas and Classic Albums Live. Yamilet also enjoys performing and recording for local bands and artists such as Urbe Prima, The Drive to Uqbar, Ratham Stone, Stockholm, Hoyle, James Roquemore, and Edgar Junior.

Yamilet is currently teaching cello and violin with several music schools, including Sam Ash, Broadway House of Music, and A Gift for Music. Her longtime dreams include playing for a movie soundtrack, playing in Carnegie Hall, touring the world, and becoming famous.

*** Lesson Details ***
My job as a teacher is to help you learn everything you need to know about playing your instrument, and really perfecting your technique. I like to use the Essential Elements for Strings book because it is straight-forward and lets you move at your own pace. Once you are proficient enough with the basics, we may move on to the Suzuki Solo books and take time to be able to get each piece to a performance-ready level.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I provide music stands, appropriate seating, and supplemental music. I expect the students to have their own instrument and necessary accessories (rock stop, rosin, shoulder rest).

*** Specialties ***
Classical, Folk, Classic Rock, and Pop

Violin Lessons in Orlando – Not Just for Beethoven and Bocephus

By Chris R. - Orlando Violin Teacher

A hot night spot is packed with people looking to kick off their evening. Canned music pumps through the sound system as the band sets up. The band members look like the usual suspects. There's the drummer, adjusting the height on the ride symbol. The bass player fiddles with the nobs on his amp. The guitarist checks her tuning one last time. The violinist puts a last swipe of rosin on his bow.

Wait! Was that really a violinist? What kind of band is this? Is this country night? Are they going to do covers of Bach and Beethoven?

Pretty soon the band starts to play. Is it rock? Yes, it's rock – but there's something more. Something that the violin does to the rock that gives it something different, something more. It's ...
