Garine A.

Winter Garden, FL

This is the first instrument I ever learned. It is a great foundation to all instruments. I can teach you the basics and more from if you're interested in chords to jam with a band or classic repertoire for piano.

About Garine

I am a music educator. I received my Bachelor’s in Music Education from the University of Central Florida in 2011.
My higher education started in the Fall of 2006 when I began attending Daytona Beach Community College. My two years there were spent fully engaged in all activities. I finished my GED requirements while participating in many ensembles like the Ormond Beach Symphony Orchestra, Daytona Beach Community College Concert Band, Brass Ensemble, Falcon Pans (steel drum ensemble), Pit Orchestra for musicals, and Choir. All of these ensembles helped me increase my awareness of many diffe
rent teaching and directing styles. I enjoyed participating in the college’s annual Medieval Yuletide Feast while playing the trombone, tuba, and singing in the choir. These experiences augmented my ability to manage my time while having the opportunity to go to school.
Almost every summer since 2005 my church has help send me to Port-du-paix, Haiti, for two weeks at a time. There we are encouraged to do many things involving teaching children, feeding the elderly and needy, and meeting new people that have made a difference in each of our lives. One of the opportunities I had during the summer of 2006 was helping teach two rehearsals of a small brass ensemble. The teacher who was heading the project had brought many donated instruments with her from Kentucky, and distributed them to the students prior to my arrival. She didn't know much about brass instruments (saxophonist), so I got to step in and take the players aside to teach the basics. Even though there was a language barrier, I was able to communicate using hand gestures, my little knowledge of Creole, and the universal language of music. This was one of the best times I have had in my life.
Another great accomplishment I have had is being a contra player in the Teal Sound Drum and Bugle Corps for the 2008 season. This opportunity ensured my discipline to tough through hard. The sole act of carrying a brass instrument that weighs over 25 lbs around all summer is a difficult task, but I had a lot of fun doing it. I also got to meet many people all over the United States that play the same instrument I do and have a similar life as mine. We had the overall score of fifth place, but our hard work and perseverance is obvious in our finals performance video.
I am a proud sister of Sigma Alpha Iota. I have held important positions including Corresponding Secretary and have headed many chair positions. The sisters of Zeta Tau are a very supportive group full of diversity. Having our weekly meetings and formal business meetings keep me up to date with Robert’s Rules of Order. I have transferred the things I have learned from these meetings to other organizations like CMENC. At the time when I was leaving the college level, I receive the Sword of Honor from our province officer. Every Spring I attend FMEA in Tampa. I made many very important connections with other educators and soon to be educators.
I also taught three years at a Title I elementary school in Osceola County, FL. It was a very tough three years, but I am grateful for all of the strategies and steps I've learned to make me a better teacher. In my second year at the school, I received the honor of being voted Teacher of the Year for our school. That was such a humbling time in my career.

Natalie H.

Yalaha, FL

I have been personally playing the piano for almost 40 years. I use several approaches depending on student's specific learning process and goals. No one leaves their first lesson without playing something on the piano.

About Natalie

Born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago, at the age of 9, Natalie knew music was something that was just a part of who she was. Writing songs on the piano before lessons could be scheduled, Natalie found herself immersed in a medium that would bring her joy for the rest of her life.

By age 14 Natalie had won several trophies competing in Classical piano with the Illinois Music Association.

As an adult, she would go on to fill her life with the world of music as a singer, songwriter, performer and recording artist.

Graduating from Elmhurst College (1997) with a Bachelor's in M
usic, Natalie received high accolades earning a membership in the Lambda Sigma Psi Music Honor Society.

During her college years, Natalie created and owned a local music publication called, "The Local Buzz". At this moment she had discovered her desire to teach. "I just wanted everyone I knew in music to know and use what I was learning, or had learned from the music classes, professionals I had been meeting and working with, and my overall music life experiences". By 1997, Natalie was signed to an independent label and embarked on a new adventure.

"Music is an adventure, but without the foundation and passion I had as a child, I would have never landed where I did. I truly LOVE to teach and share what I know about piano, and the world of music. Music is what I know, and know best. Helping to create a solid foundation and build confidence in someone embarking on a journey in music is the most rewarding profession I have ever had the honor of participating in."

*** Lesson Details ***
Natalie enjoys teaching students of any age, but specializes in piano, voice (beginner to intermediate) and beginning guitar, tailoring lessons to each individual's goals and reasons for learning whether it be for personal pleasure or professional performance.

Keeping things lighthearted and fun, Natalie breathes confidence into each student using her sense of humor, and down-to-earth personality.

Feeding off her 35 years of personal and professional experiences, Natalie patiently listens to the student's desires, needs and notates their learning patterns, allowing for growth at their own pace.

Natalie's goal is to Make Music Matter to you and create a foundation that will allow you to continue to find joy in making music for the rest of your life.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Designated music space in the living room with a Spinet piano, guitars and comfortable seating.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide lessons, music, and laptop computer.
Now doing "portable lessons"! Don't have a piano?? I bring the piano/keyboard to you!

*** Specialties ***
Piano - Classical Style and Methods

Fun first lesson...Natalie's enthusiasm filtered right through the screen to me, and the energy provided my "get away" from the rigors of the day. She was organized and followed up to make sure all my homework was sent correct digitally. Looking forward to my next lesson

Rosely P.

Clermont, FL

I'm able to adapt my teaching style to my student's™ unique way of thinking and communicate musical concepts in a way they can understand. I believe in not only teaching the mechanics of how to play the piano, but also the ˜Language of Music,™ which provides students with a holistic understanding that encompasses theory, technique, sight reading, basic composition, and performance, all while sharing my personal joy of music. Children age 5 to adults, beginners to advanced levels.

About Rosely

PIANO TEACHER/TUTOR BIO:

I was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil and emigrated with my family to the United States, moving to Brooklyn in 1962 at the age of 9. I began my piano training in Brazil at the age of 7 and continued my studies in New York. I speak three languages fluently - English, Portuguese and Spanish.

After graduating high school, at the age of 17, I attended Hunter College briefly while continuing with piano lessons and had operatic training with a voice coach associated with the New York Metropolitan Opera. At this time, I also became a member of the Harry Belafonte Group,
touring the tri-state area schools as a singer in a musical history presentation highlighting African influence on Brazilian music.

While continuing piano lessons at the Long Island Conservatory of Music, I found my passion for teaching while still a student. During my early teaching career, I apprenticed with the conservatory's director, master teacher, composer and author of educational books, Sidney J. Lawrence. While shaping my philosophy of teaching, Mr. Lawrence became my mentor and friend. I taught 3-4 year olds in preschool music pedagogy classes while also teaching piano in a career that spans more than 30 years of working with children and adults at all levels.

I am able to adapt my teaching style to my students' unique way of thinking and communicate musical concepts in a way they can understand. I believe in not only teaching how to play the piano, but also the "language of music." This provides students with a holistic understanding that encompasses theory, technique, sight reading, basic composition, and performance, all while sharing my personal joy of music.

I now live in Clermont, FL after relocating from Georgia where I taught piano while also working as a part-time substitute teacher for the Gwinnett County Public Schools and an academics tutor for K-12 levels.

I feel that my high expectations for students encourages them to reach for the best of themselves, achieve the highest standards and carry their musical training into their future lives.

Mrs. P is an amazing piano teacher, and great for any level of experience. I'm 20 years old and knew relatively nothing about the piano, but its already been a few weeks and I'm improving and having a lot of fun. She is super helpful beyond just the lessons as well, going as far as to message with students regularly to keep up with them, and discussing with them options for purchasing their own starting pianos and practicing on their own time.

About Marissa

Hello! My name is Marissa, and I come to the music studio with a passion for teaching students of all ages and needs. My education and training has taken me from Phoenix, AZ where I grew up to Greenville, SC where I received both an undergraduate degree in Music Education and a master's degree in Performance. While in Greenville, I took many choral tours and led both adult choirs and children's choirs. I often enjoyed performing for local children's CD recordings and singing in a nationally ranked community choir. It was also my privilege to train a young member of the American Boy Choir and a
ccompany for him. Now, here in Orlando, I have been teaching at an accredited music school across town for several months and am looking forward to growing my studio here at my house.

Lessons with me are always conducted in the utmost professional way, and I come to the studio with a desire to teach not only music, but the love of music. I love music and want my students to love it!
