About Timothy
I draw on my experience, as a professional musician of 25 years, in my teaching of others. This experience includes -
Church music; both as a soloist and as a music director.
Touring musician; stage presence, improvisation, sound.
Carnival Cruise Lines staff musician; '99 -2000

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe that your interest in the instrument from the "get-go" is what makes the lessons seem to fly by. As you learn, this interest only gets stronger. It is my responsibility as the teacher to make sure your time spent with me is time spent where knowledge is TRANSFERRED to you and not DISPLAYED to you. There will be responsibilities for you as the student, as this is necessary in order for you to get intimately acquainted with your instrument. But my style of teaching is simple & laid back. I feel the need that learning be enjoyable.
..as we both learn together and as you get to the place that you want to be as a musician!...at your pace!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide my personal instrument. The student must provide instrument he / she wishes to learn on.

About Joseph
I am first and forever a musician and I want to inspire the love of learning and playing music within all those I encounter. I have a degree in Musical Theatre from Western Carolina University, and I've been diligently studying music since I was a child. From me, you will learn multiple styles and work with both written music and music played by ear. I expect a great deal from my students and I hope they expect the same from me.

If music be the food of love, PLAY ON!

Joe was a great instructor! I came into the skype lesson with a very base knowledge of guitar (and not having touched mine in years) and he did a wonderful job teaching me! He gave clear and easy to understand instructions and demonstrated the fingering and techniques he wanted me to learn along with explaining them in detail, which I found very helpful. The lesson was a lot of fun and I'm excited to start practicing again! We covered a good amount of material in about an hour long lesson, some chords, strumming, scales, and exercises to practice on my own, and he even taught me a good song incorporating the chords and strumming we learned in the lesson. Joe is a great teacher with a lot of patience and I really feel like I was getting the most out of my lesson and learned a lot! I highly recommend him!

About Lydia
My teaching experience began 10 years ago. At CSU, I received a Master's in Cello Performance and a Certificate in Cello Pedagogy. I use Suzuki books but only as a sheet music resource. I teach primarily outside of the multi-purpose, Cellocity book. Using folk songs and familiar tunes as a way to instill rhythmic integrity and special techniques like thumb position. I am very much into using the voice and body in order to make memorable, musical connections. I encourage other music types and techniques, improvisation, transcribing, etc. I also advise my students to get involved in chamber and large ensemble groups outside of school.

I retired last year at the age of 64 and started taking lessons with Stephannie a month ago because I always wanted to learn to sing. I am amazed at the progress I've made in only 5 lessons. I didn't know if I could sing note one, but in the very first lesson she got me to sing 5 note scales and it just keeps getting better every week. Stephannie is simply fabulous and so encouraging that it motivates me to work even harder. Taking lessons with her is one of the best decisions I ever made.

My daughter starting taking lessons with Stephannie around age 10. I was looking for an instructor to teach piano to help introduce my kids to music before they chose an instrument in school. Stephannie was perfect. They learned far more than just piano, they learned to sight read music and learned theory and even got a chance to write a little music of their own. My son started with her around age 9. As a boy, he tended to rush and lose focus sometimes. Stephannie was always so patient and encouraging with both of the kids and worked with their strengths. At the same time, she always pushed them to grow musically. After 3 years, she had to move and we were so sad to see her go. Both of my kids went on to play instruments in school and are their section leaders (violin and trumpet). They can read music at a far more advanced level to most of their peers. That time with Miss Stephannie, building that early musical foundation, was invaluable.

I have been studying piano and voice with Stephannie for over three years and love working with her. I have had both face-to-face and online lessons. She is a master at starting where you are and finding the best approach for you in that moment. I have found parts of my voice I didn't know existed and have tackled a variety of piano pieces. Stephannie brings a wealth of knowledge about performing, technique, music history and style and lessons are always fun. I highly recommend Stephannie.

About Hayden
I am a professional trombonist, composer, arranger, and teacher in South Florida. I graduated from the University of Miami with a Masters Degree in Studio Music and Jazz Trombone Performance and received a Bachelor of Music from the University of North Texas in Jazz Trombone Performance.

The goal of my lessons is to help students enjoy music. Through listening, singing, clapping, and playing, I take students through material that we both like and help them expand their abilities and understanding. I cater my material to each person's needs while including techniques to improve fundamentals.

As a professional musician, I perform a huge variety of styles for many occasions. As a college student, I studied traditional and modern jazz styles as well as Afro-Cuban and Brazilain genres. Between degrees, I performed on the cruise ships
of Royal Caribbean and Celebrity Cruise Lines around the world for thousands of guests. During this time, I developed an understanding of classic Motown, Pop, R&B, Broadway Musical, and Rock styles. I was a member of the award-winning Bad Cactus Brass Band in my hometown of Phoenix, AZ and a member of the Los Wedos Salsa band in Denton, TX. I use all this experience to expose students to a wide variety of musical possibilities and techniques to further their musical journey.

Hayden has been teaching private Trombone lessons to my 13th year old son for over a year now. Hayden is organized and reliable; he is always on time, and has helped my son sound great. Hayden is passionate about Jazz, and knowledgeable. My son enjoys having a teacher that is as passionate as he is, and younger that the usual Trombone teachers we have found. :-)
Hayden has prepared my son for All State competitions, and for many concerts with his school and/or the jazz band my son performs outside of school. I recommend Hayden 100%!!!

Miss Alexandra was such a patient and helpful instructor. She was extremely knowledgeable and went over the basic rudiments of piano. By the end of the lesson was able to execute a few scales and play a few pieces from beginning to end! I hope to take voice lessons from her as well!

I studied guitar for 7 years through private instruction from a great teacher who not only taught me guitar and music theory, but taught me to teach it. I eventually began instructing alongside him at the music store where I learned, accumulating over 30 students, ranging in age from 10 - 70 (never too late to start!). I think what I love most about teaching is reliving the excitement of learning all over again with my students. Music is a rewarding venture, well worth the trip! Feel free to click on the "Ask Dan a Question" button near the top of the page - I'd love to hear from you!

Dan has been my guitar teacher ever since I was a little kid. Granted there was a period where I didn't take lessons from him for 6 years or so but when I wanted to start them back up he was very willing to do so!. His knowledge on guitar is incredible and I wouldn't recommend anyone else!. If you want to learn to play guitar and learn about music in general, Dan is your man!.
