Lisa P. Valrico, FL

I have taught piano for many years and studied piano since I was a child. I have a bachelors in music and have worked in a top classical studio in my background.

About Lisa

My Background in Music:

My inspiration first started when I was seven years old and in second grade. I was pondering if I wanted to dedicate myself to the music field. A substitute piano teacher came in that day and played and my admiration decided me to pursue this ambition for my life work.

I studied and played guitar and auto-harp as a child because of our lack of piano. The guitar was a gift and I played it for years and studied vocal music throughout school.

When I was a young teenager I started playing with a group that I met in a barn and I was thrilled. Many other musicians have been part of my story and as a young person I studied privately with such greats as Michelle Barone Horsefield as well as with with studio musicians such as the Scott Steeleman Studio and ...

Lisa is an exceptional person, let alone teacher. I have had the privilege of having her as my Aunt, and writing and playing piano with her has always been a fond memory for me. She made it fun, and even when I struggled, she was able to lift my spirits with her positivity and her passion for music. As a teacher, she's able to explain things in different ways and cater to the individuality of the student, which I think is key to building a solid foundation when learning a new skill, and developing said skill over time. She has incredible drive, and I think any student who gets to work with her will excel, while having a good role model to aspire to!

Lisa is by far the most experienced and practical piano teacher I have studied under in recent times. Her teaching methods and relate-able knowledge of brain-muscle memory were keys in helping me progress.
Being a studio engineer who is learning to produce, the fundamentals which Lisa has taught me are critical. Thanks Lisa!

Students will experience a full music theory and reading music notation. For beginners, teacher will choose book based upon the student age and ability and parents will pay for the instructional book. For advanced students, If you have books already, we can work out of them or I can recommend an advanced book for you.

About Nicole

Nicole began her musical journey in Long Island, New York when she began piano lessons at age five. While receiving training on piano, she joined her elementary school orchestra in the 3rd grade and quickly soared with violin. During this period, Nicole began learning music theory and the art of reading music. As a fourth grader, Nicole would go on to conduct and tune every instrument in her orchestra during rehearsal. She always competed and won many NYSMA competitions for violin while attending music seminars and workshops. It was then that her teacher realized she had a gift. Nicole continued with piano lessons and began teaching herself guitar. Later, after college, she bought herself a drum set and began to teach herself drums.
As an adult, Nicole studied to become an ...

To describe Mercedes in one word: "Awesome!" She is very patient and encouraging. I started taking singing lessons later in life and have always been very shy about it. Not only has she helped me to break out of my shell, but she is extremely knowledgeable and I have learned so much. She has been gifted with this wonderful talent in music and voice and I am truly blessed to have her as my teacher.

She is wonderful! She really knows how to reach children which is that she has such a gentle soul. She welcomed us strangers to her home and opened my son up to several types of music he never thought about before. We are leaving the area which is why we had to say goodbye. She is absolutely meant to teach.

wonderful teacher

Mercedes is an enthusiastic and patient teacher! My children have only been taking piano lessons from her for less than 6 months, but there is a significant improvement in their abilities already. She encourages them to play with feeling, never overwhelms them with too much work, and is always so upbeat at the lessons.

She is Cuban, so sometimes you have to listen carefully, because of her accent, but she speaks English well.

Nadia has been teaching my twin 9-year old boys piano for the last couple of months for a half hour each. She is prompt, self-motivated and serious about ensuring my kids are taught well. She gives them home work and provides me with great feedback on how I can further help them learn. She has a bubbly personality but means business when teaching my kids. I HIGHLY recommend her!!!

Piano Lessons for Tampa's Every Mood

By Lisa F. - Tampa Piano Teacher

Through years of research, it is a well researched conclusion that studying piano increases intelligence. Everything from higher math and reading scores to increasing IQ's has been studied, put to the test via the scientific method and positively proven. Simply put, students who take music lessons do better in overall school performance. It is also well known that music influences mood. Think about all the emotions you had the last time you watched a movie and experienced the effects of the so-called "background music".

Yet, music has a function that is far greater than positively impacting academic performance or setting the mood. Music can actually be used to change an emotional state from a negative one to a positive one. I have had many ...
