Jesey is FANTASTIC! I'm an adult beginner with no prior music experience. I've had a couple online lessons so far and I couldn't be more pleased. I've learned something new in every lesson and he's been helping me learn some of my favorite songs. He's great!

I normally use the Standard of Excellence method books for many of my students; however, I am open minded to adjusting to each individual student's musical needs, whether it be Jazz, Classical, or whatever style music the student is focusing on. Other excellent methods are the Ed Sueta Book, Rubank Method, Breeze Easy, Achievement in Excellence, and perhaps the First Division Method Book. For Drummers, I prefer the Haskell Harr Method, or the Buddy Rich Method Book, as well as the Breeze Easy Method. I always play my instrument along with the student so that he/she can hear how the music is supposed to be played in regards to the notes as well as the rhythm! This way, we all have fun learning!

I would like to start out saying I’m a 66 year old beginner acoustic guitar player. Kevin was very good in assuring me that the guitar isn’t that difficult to learn and proved it in my first lesson. He makes you feel at ease and throughly explains the lesson.

I will teach you to play from an emotional center and tell stories with your lead a guitar playing. I specialize in jam band guitar playing. This style, most typified by Jerry Garcia and Trey Anastasio, borrows from rock, blues and bluegrass. It is known for emphasis on soaring climaxes during improvised sets.

Why do some guitar players "noodle' instead of flow? The short answer is they are unclear about what they want to say and they are nervous. I will teach you to get the note from your inner ear to your fretboard. I will also teach you how to stay in a flow state. My lessons combine theory, ergonomics, mindfulness and journaling. The result will be confidence, clarity and the development of your own voice.

I am an experienced teacher of over 15 years, specializing in the beginner/intermediate piano students preferable ages 7 years upwards.
Not only will you be playing songs in no time, but you will also be taught a strong foundation of sight reading, music theory, technique, and more, and I guarantee that at the end of your class, you will be looking forward to the next class.

I am a tickler for ensuring that the material taught is learnt, and so I may use basic everyday knowledge to apply the principles. I am patient especially when dealing with young children, whose attention span may be short. I balance off the piano experience with the fundamentals of theory, which goes hand in hand with the piano playing experience. My students and their parents know that part of mastering the art of piano playing, is practising on their own at home, hence having a keyboard/piano or access to a keyboard/piano is essential. My classes are very structured.

About Patricia

I have taught piano for about fifteen (15) years at both the beginner and intermediate stages. I completed up to Grade 8 of The Royal School of Music Exams. It gives me great joy when my students are able to apply the theory foundation to the practical. I consider myself a patient teacher and lo

I Eileen Francis, a graduate of Jamaica School of Music, and as a professional piano teacher, all my exams and passes were done in Jamaica and all this was from The Associated Board of The Royal School of Music London.

Patricia started music as a child, and took all her exams right up to Grade 8. She is an excellent musician and also a wonderful teacher. She taught with me for a long time. She now plays for churches, and professionally for functions. She knows how to get small children and adults to understand and read notes and also to write music. I recommend her very highly in this profession.
Nancy Hunter
I have known Mrs. Patricia Masters as a lover of Music whether it be Musical instruments, theatrical presentations, songs of different genres, she loves them all and is involved in creating the atmosphere where music has its input. She is very diligent and creative and excellent at what she does where music is concerned. Music is her life. As a teacher, a choir director and a musician, she makes sure that it is perfect for presentation and that at the end of the day, her student excels. Mrs. Masters is dependable and reliable.

"I’m an older gentlemen, and I never though I would be able to play the piano. However, two years have passed since my first lesson with Nadia and I play almost like a pro. She is an excellent teacher with a special approach to every student. She would come to my location in Clearwater for two hour sessions. During this time she helped me improve in theory, in playing the piano, and even in tuning my grand piano. She is very skilled and talented. She really knows what she is doing. She is now tutoring my grand children and they absolutely love her!"

Brian quickly adjusted to my experience level and has done an outstanding job of removing long-standing bad habits and reinforcing the good ones.

"As an adult beginner, I chose Anastasia for more personalized instruction, especially in technique, after learning the basics through community center group lessons. I have not continued only because another equally well-qualified instructor who lives close by, within walking distance, has become available. I am very pleased with the lessons and pointers that I have received. Anastasia is professional, encouraging, and friendly. An especially helpful part of her instruction is the set of comments and suggestions that she writes down to guide practice between lessons. If the neighbor instructor does not work out, I’ll be back."
