Kelly P. Winter Haven, FL

About Kelly

I teach at a pace that the student learns while challenging them. I graduated Cum Laude from The Baptist College of Florida with my Bachelor's in Music Education. I graduated with Honors from Polk Community College. *** Lesson Details *** I can be strict but mostly laid back. I use the Essential Elements 2000 for Strings curriculum with a mix of Suzuki Method. After 3-6 months you will have learned the parts of the instrument, note names, a few scales and bow technique. I start by teaching the instrument and note names and fingerings to them then pitches and bowing. *** Studio Equipment *** I will provide a stand to use and keyboard to hear pitches. *** Travel Equipment *** I expect them to have the books, stand, instrument, rosin, stand for home practice and tuner/metronome. ***

Excellent Teacher.

I'm an experienced player, so I can't exactly say that he'd be good for someone who's just picking up a guitar. But he does an excellent job teaching technicality and musicality, which is something that many teachers lack these days. When I looked for a teacher I wanted someone who would help me better myself as a musician in a style I wasn't very familiar with. By musician, I mean someone who is not only technically proficient, but also very musical and a very good interpreter of music. So far he's helped me a lot in all of those aspects, while managing to keep a comfortable learning pace. I'd recommend him to anyone who really wants to push themselves musically.

Best instructor ever! Very patient, and has an instinctive ability to understand how a student best learns, and focuses on that style, thus producing results I never dreamed I could accomplish. It is a joy to work with Andre.

Great teacher. Teaching in steps and then adding more to it and repeating is the best way to go and Rufus is doing just that with me. All ready in 3rd lesson as a beginner and im getting the hand of it pretty quick. I will learn this song in no time and perhaps a few more just for the fun of it.

I'm a recent graduate from Southeastern University with a degree in Music Performance. I've been raised in a family of musicians while living in Europe. I've been exposed and instructed in various genres through different musical approaches and methods ranging from Classical to Jazz both on the piano as well as on percussion/drums. The songwriting projects that I've worked on (in and out of studios) are also part of my artistic experience and I enjoy sharing some insight in that area as well as any aspects related to music performance.
