As a piano teacher I strive to educate students on the fundamentals of piano playing which includes technique exercises, scales, chords, as well as sight reading. I find it very important that students apply their knowledge in a practical way. That being said, I teach students their favorite songs while educating them on the techniques and theory the music they are learning includes. All of my students learn how to improvise over a variety of musical styles.

Taking guitar lessons and having Joe as my instructor has been a life and career changing event for me. Being in the Adult Rock Ensemble class with Joe has taught me more about how to deal with immediate changes at work, dealing with employees, as well as having fun playing music with friends.

I work with Bastien method books for Children and adults. They work great. I also use Alfred method books for the young beginner and beginner adult. I also like to make it is for everyone have a good time while learning. It should not be a struggle but a great learning process.

About Melody
First I want to thank you for looking at my profile.
You can read about me below.
If you have any questions please email me through Take Lessons.

About me:

Even though it says my travel is 10 miles max I do make exceptions.

I started music at age 5. My parents were both professional musicians.My father was a professional jazz piano player and my mother a classical guitarist. So it is in the blood. I play a few instruments but my favorite guitar and piano. I went to Nassau Community College for Drama/Music.
I toured in theater groups and also was in a few bands while living in NY. I could not make up my mind so I did both. I love both So. Florida here I come in 1991. Since I was new to the area I starting performing regular basis and became well known in the music community.I also went on a song writing spree. I was also able to do
dinner theater in between the music. I met some people, music teachers from going to the open mics. They encouraged me to go out and start teaching and do what I was supposed to do. How it happened ? I placed one small ad, got a call and from there it grew into over 80 students.I just was referred to everyone it was a chain reaction.
In between teaching I was also in a duo and made time for the touring, local gigs, etc....released 3 CD's.
I was very busy that I decided to open up my own music school to handle the over flow of students. I had my business for 9 years.
I produced a lot of talent from there.songwriters with published songs, singers with contracts, bands the guitarist in the now defunct band Hey Monday with Cassidy Pope. Students that were in American Idol- featuring Emily Booke 2 years in a row top twenty then top ten..
America's Got Talent featuring Amy Profaci, Cassidy Pope.
Played for the Boss in RPB with Odd Man Out, Teen Punk Band since disbanded. Had them out and playing gigs at age 14 the youngest oldest 16 at CBGB's. In NYC. They were on the Regis and Kelly show. Students that started with me at age 5 and stayed for years. A lot are off to college or done with school grown up sort of. When they bump into me and say hey Ms. Mel I'll never forget you teaching me music lessons or do you remember that or I loved that band class you did. You changed my whole life.
I really appreciate it and I did make a difference in their lives.
I also write for TV and Film and have over 30 professionally published songs. Songs playing on commercials, TV and overseas in England. They seem to love it over there a lot of fan mail.

Ok this is as follows.
*** Lesson Details ***
Cancellations : 24 hour notice. Make up lessons are at my discretion.
61 key keyboard are ok for piano lessons.
You must have a piano for vocal lessons if I come to your home. You must have a guitar 🎸 for guitar lessons. I do not supply any instruments or lesson books. You are required to contact me once booked and find out what you will need.

How long will it take to learn depends on YOU!!!!

Practice is the answer not a question. You must be prepared to work to do the work. If you do not understand it we will do it until you get it.
My Adult students this goes for you too.
It is important that you practice. So I recommend cutting down on video games and TV.
I suggest no TV or Video games especially before the lessons are about to start. Very distracting for the kids.
I expect you to be practiced and ready to go when I get there. If you want to be a rock star that's what it takes, discipline.
Its great when a parent can sit in while I'm teaching your child. Remember I am teaching you as well.
You will be helping your child practice during the week until the next lesson.
For the guitar there will be complaints of hurting finger tips.
I cannot do anything about that it comes with guitar playing.
For the like piano, the fingers will not hurt.

After 3 to 6 months for the older student I expect all 6 strings to be complete and chords and strumming on guitar and learning songs of your choice.
Piano - Sight Reading and being able to play with 2 hands in the key of "C" with ease.
This will only happen with practice, And learning songs of your choice if you choose to.

Small ones as much time as they need depends upon how long it takes for them to learn it and how much time mom can help practice.

*** Studio Equipment **
Right up Piano,
Small 15 Watt Amp

**Supplies:
I do not supply instruments for any student. Parents you are
expected to purchase a 61 key keyboard of your choice and finances.Same goes for guitar. We will figure out the size you or your child needs. You must purchase your own books. I use Bastiens Primer A red book, Bastiens A Pink Book, along with these books they also have a theory book , performance book and technic book. Bk 1,2,3 also have a series of book 📚 to work with.

Guitar 🎸 I like to use Fast Track Bk 1 w/o CD. Then again they are becoming obsolete

*** Specialties ***
Song writing/Vocals
Beginner Piano/Intermediate
Beginner classical/intermediate guitar
Folk style guitar
Blues beginner/intermediate
Theory beginner/intermediate/advanced note reading
Piano beginner /intermediate young beginner young adult to the older adult this goes for piano.

*Please note those who need special songs for auditions while taking voice lessons let's discuss options. Vocals lessons are just as serious you must practice.

Whether you want to learn basics, expand your classical technique, or learn how to play your favorite pop songs, I'm ready to take your self-expression to the next level! I can't wait to start this journey with you. In your first few lessons, you'll learn basic music theory as well as piano etiquette, and even a few songs! As we go on, we will also incorporate ear training and more complex pieces, selected based on your personal goals. I can't wait to start this journey with you!

My name is Cassie Porterfield and I am married with three kids, ages 16, 14, and 11. I have always enjoyed teaching piano because I prefer to work one on one with people- especially kids- and know that the learning to play can be something that is enjoyed and utilized for a lifetime. Creating music is something that makes our world a lovelier place, and I enjoy seeing others find joy in the little successes of learning.

About Ailey
Dear my potential future students!

I'm very looking forward to meeting and working with you! My name is SooJi and I will be your new piano/Korean teacher and we will be walking this amazing journey together! Isn't it interesting!!! I'm glad you chose me as your new teacher and I'm very excited to have you as my new student!

I'm a specialized, professional classical pianist, traveling around the United States, Asia, and Canada for various fundraising and solo concerts. I've been teaching children, age from 3 to 15 and beyond for almost five years!
My profession is spreading the music and its love to the people who appreciate its magic, but my most important goal is to share the music with young people who love to learn and play it!

Music is a lot of fun and so is piano! Piano is a magic instrument! You will love learning it and p
laying it for yourself, your family, friends, and your puppies too! I am very thrilled to share my passion for music with you! and I hope you and I will be new best friends, beyond being just a teacher and a student!

I am a very funny and kind teacher:) When you meet me, you will realize "she is very funny" HAHA!!!
Just choose me and you will see why many students have worked with me and love learning music with me! And let me know if you have any questions about lessons or anything that is not about music too! I'm more than happy to answer them for you!

One thing! If you are interested in booking lessons with me, please only book two/three! Sometimes it is very difficult to find a good, I mean "really-good-matching" teacher for a student. I want to be the best teacher for you and I promise I will, but if for any reasons, we are not good matches, I will try my best to find a good one for you!

If you have any questions, please let me know! Also, if you are interested in "Me" please go and have a look at my site!

SooJi has been teaching my 11 year old son for three years. I remember the day I met her. She was smiling for whole time of our first meeting. She helped us getting a good conditioned used keyboard for practice, by taking her time. One thing I always wondered was "does she have anger?" Before being a father, I'm also an artist, painter, so I know ho some artist behave which irritates me sometimes. SooJi recommended me to stay during few lessons so I can observe my son's improvements over time. She never gets mad. Literally, NEVER. Being a teacher is difficult job. Students can be rude and that makes teachers angry and sometimes lessons go real wrong. One day, my son got so tired that he couldn't focus on lesson. I got mad but SooJi said "that's ok. I understand. People work and get tired and that's normal. We have few minutes left so why don't we play something fun then?" and my son smiled. I don't know, but I can definitely feel SooJi has a very special talent of making people feel better and more comfortable. She knows how to ease people and how to deal with problems without getting angry or shouting at kids. Her lessons are so much fun, yet so much learning too. Sometimes even I enjoyed the lesson and I participated and SooJi and my son laughed at me haha. Before meeting her, my son never knew the "music" but after having lessons with her, my son already just completed his third solo recital which was around 40 minutes. I was so proud of him that I actually cried during the concert. SooJi is not just a teacher. My son one day told me that SooJi is his best friend. They get along well, my son laughs a lot which doesn't happen often and SooJi makes silly jokes that make him feel ease during lessons. They are just too many good things I can say about her, but I won't because it will get way longer.
One thing I want to say is if people want to be a teacher, they need to learn from her. They need to observe SooJi's talent, humor, kindness, and smiles. We love her so much and we appreciate her playing during our wedding. Thank you SooJi! You are our second daughter! We love you so much!

Upon re-locating to the area, we were referred to Paula Johnson for our daughter's continuing lessons. We were fortunate to have four years with Paula before our daughter left for college. During that time, our daughter was challenged in all genre's of music and excelled under Paula's excellent tutelage. Her instruction in theory and practical application instilled skills in our daughter that she has taken with her into her adult life and will enjoy in the future.

Katherine is a truly superb teacher, who has great insight into not only the technical aspects of singing, but also the emotional and psychological wellbeing of the singer themselves. When my daughter Charlotte told me she wanted to audition for the school musicale, I did have my doubts. She is incredibly shy and sometimes comes off as quite aloof. I thought perhaps voice lessons would help her to loosen up a bit more than her weekly piano instruction. I found Katherine through a friend whose daughter was also taking voice lessons. At our first meeting, Katherine was a joy to speak with, warm and welcoming towards my daughter, and I had no reservations about the arrangement. After a few short weeks, I noticed a change in Charlotte's confidence and her motivational drive. She was excelling not only in her music, but also in her other areas of study. This trend continued up until the day of the audition. Charlotte had the confidence to audition for the musicale, and she DID earn a role. I am incredibly proud of my daughter and incredibly grateful to her teacher. Katherine has helped my daughter in immeasurable ways, and we look forward to future study with her.
