Berthe H.

Largo, FL

I teach the very beginner to the very advanced levels. combining piano technique with music theory and some history and analysis of western music so the student will understand what he's doing and be able to interpret in the right style of the music he's playing.

About Berthe

My name is Berthe ( pronounced Bert). At the age of 4, I began taking
piano lessons. By age 8, I was performing for the first time at the
Assembly Hall of the American University of Beirut. In 1978, I attended
the Faculty of Music of the Holy Spirit University of Kaslik/Lebanon,
where I completed a PhD. in music education and a higher diploma in
piano.
From 1982 to 2000, I taught piano, music theory, music education,
music appreciation, and the history of and analysis of Western music
at the University of the Holy Spirit of Kaslik (USEK), The University of St.
Joseph (USJ) and the L
ebanese University (UL).
I recorded my first CD “Rehna Meshouar”, a collection of Lebanese
songs for children, intended to introduce music to kids. I took part in
many educational activities and devoted myself to the promotion of
musical education to the children. In 1995, I published my first book
“Do-Mi-Sol”, that focuses on a method specifically designed to teach kids
Solfege (oral theory and ear training).

From 1998 to 2001 I was in charge of training aspiring music teachers
at the Ecole Normale in piano, music education, psychology of music
education, and the philosophy of music education.
By the year 2000,I was appointed Director of Studies and the Academic
Secretary of the Music Faculty at the Holy Spirit University of Kaslik.
During my tenure, I employed teachers, advised students, and
developed artistic and academic programs. It was my responsibility to
organize studies and examinations, as well as plan, execute, organize studies and examinations, as well as plan and execute
concerts, conventions, and competitions. I have lectured all over Europe and the Middle East, as well as published many articles concerning music and music education.
Since moving to Florida in 2007, I am a professor of piano instruction at St. Petersburg College. I also give private lessons in my studio. I have served as a judge several times at the Bay Ridge Piano Festival.

*** Lesson Details ***
Our musical journey has a smooth and relaxed progression, establishing enough command of the keyboard to allow each student to develop naturally. To make the piano a richer and more rewarding experience, I enjoy introducing a variety of musical styles, from popular favorites to timeless classical pieces, according to the student’s musical tastes.

I believe in a dynamic and responsive method of teaching. I see the student as an active participant in their own learning. Our lesson feels pleasant and joyful, so the student will always delight in playing the piano and creating music. Based on the student’s age and demands, I employ several methods of teaching that lead to the development of observation, concentration, creativity, self-confidence, and personal expression. I encourage and support my students regardless of specific talent, as we move toward an effective and beneficial musical experience.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room: baby grand piano, additional seating for parents.

*** Specialties ***
I teach Classical music to beginners and advanced students and follow the active method of teaching where the student is not just a receiver but participate in his own learning.

Ms. Berthe has been our teacher for more than 4 years now. Our children look forward to each class & have a special bond with her, as do I. She is a loving, encouraging teacher, who has provided our children with the knowledge they need to play piano, read music & even love practicing each day!

Outstanding Piano Instructor

She is attentive, listens to what the student needs; the instructor is outstanding because unlike other instructors I've taken from, she gives me what I want to play and I learn basics which are essential. Other instructors have a set way about teaching and does not take the student in mind. I LOVE this instructor! Thanks for asking....

Andrew G.

Dunedin, FL

Learn from Bastion Piano Basics books or other beginner level books studying technique and basic piano skills.

About Andrew

I have been teaching students of all ages for 17 years. My principle instrument is Trumpet, but I teach multiple instruments. I received my BS in music from Radford University in 2000. I moved to Miami in 2001 to attend school and perform with artists such as Arturo Sandoval, Micheal Brecker, David Sandborn, Diana Krall, as well as numerous corporate bands in the Miami area playing for such people as Donald Trump and opening up for Lionel Richie and Elton John. Through out my entire educational and professional career I have helped many students reach their personal and professional goals.
As a teacher I understand the importance of patience and persistence, I utilize positive reinforcement and encouragement. Music is meant to be fun so therefore I make the lesson FUN! My teaching method is different for every student because every student is different and we all learn things in a different way. So as a teacher I adapt to you and what works for you.

Martin D.

Clearwater, FL

I teach both traditional and non-traditional methods for Classical. Showtunes. Pop, Gospel, etc.

About Martin

I've been teaching professionally for over ten years and have taught over 200 students of all ages and backgrounds how to play. I've played mostly in rock bands but have also done Classical, Jazz, and Country projects. I play a wide selection of styles including Rock, Pop, Country, Ragtime, Folk, Blues, Bluegrass, Metal, Church, Renaissance, Punk, and Funk/Soul. (Everything from Bach to Rock to Bachrach). I graduated from the University of Maryland and Excelsior College.

*** Lesson Details ***
I listen closely to the student's wants and together we develop the approach that will help them
reach their goals. I use a wide variety of methods from strict classical methods (such as Noad or Parkening) to simply teaching chords and "tabbing out" their favorite songs. However, I do make sure the student understands underlying theory and becomes a musician not a parrot. Each student has different strengths and weaknesses (cognitive and physical) and different amounts of time to practice. I take all of these into account in developing your individual lesson plan.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Separate studio room, hundreds of music books, 3 chairs, guitars, amps, and bass, keyboard and piano

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students should have own instrument and amp. I bring books and handouts.

*** Specialties ***
Guitar and Bass: Beg. to Advanced

banjo and piano: Beg. - intermediate

All Styles (except Flamenco) to include Folk, Acoustic Fingerstyle, Rock, Punk, Blues, Country, Church, Bluegrass, Soul, Ragtime and Classical.

Martin was very gentle in mood and helpful. He didn't waste time and I felt comfortable talking with him immediately. He wasn't at all intimidating and that helped me feel comfortable making noise and telling him about myself. He focused entirely on me. Perfect manner. The HW he gave me was not overbearing and makes perfect sense in retrospect. He gave me confidence that I could achieve my goals much sooner than I expect. I'm hoping I can stick with him. He knows my technique is good, which it is, and I look forward to working with him. Just after getting back home, I really feel like practicing.

Great instructor overall

Marty was a great instructor to me. Taught me a lot in the 4 lessons I had with him. Very professional and knowledgable in Bass. Unfortunately because my schedule changing I could not keep him as an instructor. My only gripe would be that his studio room gets a little cramped and my guitar sometimes would hit things. Other than that. I would definitely recommend him.

Nicole C.

Clearwater, FL

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 c
ontinued 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 elementary teacher and worked in the New York State School Districts for over five years. Shortly after receiving her master€™s degree for Literacy Education, Nicole decided to attempt to share her passion for music. In 2007, Nicole opened a music studio in Holbrook, New York. Here, she refined her music teaching skills while establishing Nicolex Inc. Music Island as a leading source of quality music education. Her summer traveling music program allowed her students to experience live performances as well as create music groups with peers with the same passion for music.
Nicole now resides in Clearwater, Florida with hopes to spread her business as well as the joy of music to children and adults. She currently is the drummer for a local original rock band. In this band, Nicole writes songs, sings, plays piano, and drums (not all at the same time). Needless to say, she understands the importance that music has had in her life and wishes to ignite that passion in other music lovers.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching style is best labeled as kind but firm. I take my job very seriously and want wholeheartedly for my students to have music as a part of their life, not just a part of their day. I love to laugh and have fun but I will definitely expect my students to practice and complete any homework I assign and be prepared for the following lesson. Simply stated, music is fun and the love of my life, but if I still practice, you will as well. Otherwise, I always believe in teaching songs my students are interested in and will expand their musical skills. My experience as a public school teacher had enhanced my sense of finding individual needs of every student. Therefore, I always differentiate lessons to suit my students interest while teaching them the foundations every musician needs in order to be successful. My specialty is teaching a variety of instruments. I play drums, guitar, bass, piano, and sing as well. So, if one instrument is not for you, I can teach you something different without a problem. Long story short, friends, you are in good hands.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Full Service music room: Keyboard, drum kit, Acoustic/Electric Guitar, Electric Guitar with 30 watts Amp and Microphone/ vocal monitor.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can bring a 61 key Casio Keyboard for household to use for lessons for a small monthly rental fee. I have an acoustic/electric Spectrum Guitar with 30w amplifier. Can also bring microphone and monitor for vocal lessons.

*** Specialties ***
I have taught mostly Rock, Blues, and Classical genres for Piano, Guitar, Drums. Vocally, I specialize in R&B, Broadway, Pop, Top 100 and alternative/Hard Rock. I will adapt to your needs.

Christina C.

Palm Harbor, FL

I've been teaching music for over 10 years. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to begin reading playing fun single line short songs and as time goes on you'll be able to play beautiful songs with both hands. I specialize in classical, Jazz, Rock, and Klezmer style music, and I typically use the Alfreds Method books. I also place strong emphasis on reading, rhythm, and finger placement, and I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

I teach music lessons to both kids and adults of all playing levels and all styles including Classical and Jazz.

Christina is an excellent teacher. She is very detailed when

I like the fact that she does not move forward until I have
learned where my problem areas are; for example timing.
