This option is available for music students who demonstrate a stronger interest in music than in language arts. The option is designed to assist students with the understanding or completion of schoolwork. Creative methods, most easily understood by arts' students are used to reintroduce information that is often not mastered in class.

Fantastic Teacher!!

Candace is amazing! I came to her wanting to learn the fundamentals of singing and she has gone far beyond my expectations. She is patient, and truly believes in me even when I feel as if I cannot do it. She is the best teacher I have ever come across and I couldn't ask for anything better!

She is amazing!

I came into this searching for somebody whom I thought could get me to the skill level that I so desperately desire. So far Candice has done a phenomenal job of laying the foundation of my technique in a way that I am having fun and seeing results. After 4 weeks of lessons I could not imagine working with anyone else!

My Lessons with Ms. C Changed Everything

All I knew when I first started was that I wanted to be famous. She helped me to identify my goals and she literally put me on a path to reach them. My confidence was definitely boosted because we attacked every insecurity head on and now there aren't any. I also learned how to process and use my nervous energy working with her. She's amazing! I've had lessons with some teachers who were a bit stiffer but we really went in deep and it was exactly what I needed.

Ilona has been teaching piano to my 12 year old daughter for a few weeks now but already I can see a dramatic improvement in my daughter's playing! Ilona is a wonderful teacher who is able to not just provide piano playing instruction but also provides instruction on music theory to students to really provide a comprehensive musical education for her students!

Excellent teacher!

As I've worked with Ilona and gotten to know her as my teacher, I realize that she really truly cares that I learn well and learn the proper way. She can be tough and gives me a good amount of work to do, but it's all because she wants me to learn and learn well. If I'm unable to complete an assignment she just laughs and says "Life happens" - she's very understanding. She's very patient and encourages me all the time. I often will make a comment such as "I stink at this" and she'll tell me I'm too hard on myself and piano is a learning experience. Obviously teaching is her calling in life and she's excellent at it! I would recommend her to anyone who wants to learn the art of playing the piano.

Cello
Ilona is one of the best teachers I had so far. I have fun with her learning cello.

I learned a lot with her and enjoy playing with her duets on the violin. Because of her I got into Gold Cost Youth Orchestra where I met one of her violin students Sharri. She encouraged me to stay focused on my playing and to perform chamber music with her. Very well organized teacher, I will recommend her for any age.

Emphasis on Grammar

About Julie

I am passionate about Music and Music Education. It's rewarding for me to watch my students develop in their musical skill and enjoy making music more and more. My students range from the very young (4 years old) to school age children, to teens, and adults. My students benefit from my expertise in teaching Vocal and Piano music, my knowledge of Music Theory, and my encouraging teaching style. I have been involved in making music since I was a young child, and I have been teaching private students since I was a Music major at the University of Florida in 1982 when a fellow college student asked me to teach her voice lessons. I have a Music Education degree from the University of Florida; my major instrument was Voice, my minor was Piano. I taught as a public school music educator ...

Julie is the BEST!! I took lessons as a child, but had not taken any lessons in over 10 years when I first began lessons with Julie. Almost immediately she was able to help me recall everything I had learned when I was younger. Very knowledgeable and encouraging, makes each lesson a joy! Highly recommended for those who are serious about learning the piano (or anything else I'm sure!).

Great Motavator!!

Julie is our first experience with a piano teacher. She has been instructing my somewhat shy 6 year old for about 9 months now. She is amazing with my daughter. She is very encouraging and stays right on her level while pushing her to expand her knowledge in music. I couldn't be more pleased in our first experience. Julie even had my daughter performing in front of an audience just 4 months after her first lesson. A memory my child will have forever.

I would like to start off by saying, I was very nervous about hiring a tutor for my first grader! I wasn't sure about the dynamics of my daughter with someone she didn't know in our home working on "school stuff" that was already a topic of anxiety. But all that went out the window when we met Matt! My husband and I sat at the table with Matt and my daughter and presented her strengths and weaknesses. Matt jumped RIGHT IN and picked up on exactly what she needed help with within minutes. He kept it fun and exciting for her, even when she started to get tired. He used a calm voice and steady lessons to keep her engaged and LEARNING. Matt came right down to a first graders level and used simple words and instruction. After only two hours and the end of our session, she was mocking Matt's instruction and repeating numbers and sequences to her dad and I with confidence! Matt continued to encourage her through out the lesson and kept thing light and humorous. Evee was laughing and smiling with him from the first moment. My daughter is quite shy around strangers and by the time Matt left, out daughter not only shook his hand, but gave him a giant hug and asked me when he was coming back again. Matt is an amazing tutor and I would very HIGHLY recommend him to any parent looking for the extra help. He was energetic and made learning fun for my daughter. After only two hours, she had A LOT more confidence about Math and numbers and coins. Without any hesitation, I would tell any parent to not be nervous about hiring a tutor, and to feel assured and relaxed to hire Matt. There is not a single thing I would critique about his lesson or his ability to work with a 7 year old. He got right down to work and didn't waste a single moment of time. His lessons were full and easy-going and targeted our specific area of need. My husband and I absolutely loved working with Matt, he was an absolute pleasure. I would highly recommend him to any one! Thank you Matt and WyzAnt for putting our fears at ease and helping my daughter get up to par! Confidence in school work for my daughter is PRICELESS to me and I have Matt and WyzAnt to thank for taking a lot of the fear and panic out of getting there ourselves. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Matt is wonderful. He is tutoring both of my elementary school children and they really like him a lot. He takes his time with the children and gives them both his full attention. As a working single mother, my schedule can be hectic. Matt is very flexible with his schedule and very accommodating with changes in my plans week to week and I truly appreciate that! I am excited to see how the kids will do this next grading period with Matt helping them, because I already see a little more confidence in their approach to schoolwork. I highly recommend Matt as a tutor, he's professional and a pleasure to work with.

About Lourdes

I have been tutoring and teaching for twenty years for private students as well as at academic institutions (University of Arizona, Southern Mississippi, Phoenix, Capella, and Pima and Gulf Coast Community Colleges. In sessions, I find out what the student really needs and help them achieve realistic goals through thorough evaluation, pacing and persistent challenge. No matter what level of achievement is desired, I customize a lesson plan and learning regimen and guide the student to cross transformational thresholds. I look for and draw out the potential in students and help them achieve the competency they need to be independent learners and succeed in their endeavors professionally and personally.

Lourdes was my singing coach for well over two years. With her, I not only learned how to sing but also a great deal about music, writing, philosophy and more. When I first started taking lessons with her, I had only wanted to sing. However, through working with her I was convinced to set my bar much higher. After working with her on the basics, I decided to go back to school to study music. With her continued tutelage and advice throughout this endeavor I have been able to not only meet expectations in an entirely new field but achieve notable academic success. Thanks in large part to her support, I am now gearing up to go to grad school and have been offered a GTA position with The University of Arizona's School of music. With Lourdes, I got so much more than just a voice coach. I ended up meeting a vibrant and brilliant individual who could help refine not only my musical abilities, but also my academic and professional skills. In whatever domain you intend to seek Lourdes' services, you will be pleasantly surprised to find yourself sitting with a true expert.

What I found the greatest part of her services was her continued focus on excellence. Strangely, this became the most challenging aspect of our work together as well. Lourdes encouraged me to push the envelope in directions I had never expected, but now the world seems like a place full of opportunity. My work with her can best be described as a crucible, from which I emerged far more capable and well-rounded than I had thought possible. If you're looking for more than just another tutor or coach, I can recommend no individual more motivating, energetic, capable and all around excellent than Lourdes C.
