About Allen

I am a University of Miami School of Music graduate with extensive experience in music education, theory, songwriting and arranging.
As a winner of the Florida State Concerto Competition at 17, and having performed with some of South Florida's best singers and musicians, I offer a wealth of knowledge about how to connect music theory with music practice.

I specialize in creating individual lesson plans - no 'cookie cutter' methods, and no lectures about practicing!

My teaching style is free-flowing and relaxed. I'm very willing to adapt to any and all situations
in order to make music education work for YOU.

We offer group lessons that help young students learn socially and with fun activities. Our music reading curriculum teaches "easy success", in a one - note - at - a - time fashion.

*** Equipment ***
I have a small keyboard lab of 4 - 5 pianos for group lessons and games.
It is preferred that private students have a piano or full size keyboard.
We also provide games, piano accompaniment tracks, and other accessories to make lessons more interactive and fun.

My daughter has had several piano teachers over the years. And none have shown the dedication as Allen does. His method works. We see gradual improvements. I am a musician as well and can appreciate that she is learning technique as well as how to read complet musical notation.
I would recommend Allen as he is patient, trustworthy and very talented.

Steve G.

Pompano Beach, FL

About Steve

Music has been a part of my life for over 4 decades. I stepped onstage when I was 15, and have been active in the music business ever since. I was raised in the New York / New England area, and played in many bands in the 70's and 80's, most notably the band AVALON. I moved to Florida in the late 80's and began to develop a one man show, using the emerging technology available. I called the show YIN YANG, the infinite possibility of Music. I chose the name, as it is the Oriental symbol for balance, and used it to represent the balance between the electric and acoustic, and the technology of t
oday with the classic music from yesterday. Midi guitar and guitar synthesis became my trademarks as I pushed the boundaries of how I could express myself on the guitar. Being able to play sax, flute, strings, pianos, even percussion on the guitar took my imagination to new places and enabled me to express myself in ways I didn't know were possible. I grew up influenced by the classic rock guitarists such as Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Alvin Lee, Duane Allman, and used their techniques to springboard me into developing my style. I am also influenced by some of the great guitarists of today, such as Satriani, Vai, Bonamassa, etc. I am fluent in electric and acoustic guitar, slide guitar, open tunings, modal playing, and guitar synthesis. I also can play and teach mandolin, ukulele, banjo, bass, and also harmonica and folk harp. I am working on the bagpipes now. I also give lessons on music technology, audio recording, and music software such as Sonar, Reason, and Finale, to name a few. Music is the passion that feeds my soul, and a decade ago I started teaching, to have a chance to give back to the next generation and share what I have learned along the way. I love bringing out the soul of each new student I meet.

*** Lesson Details ***
When I take on a new student, the first thing I do is to sit down and talk to them and find out a bit about them... their personality, what their influences in music are, what artists they like, and what they are looking to be able to accomplish on the instrument. Each student is an individual, so depending on what they like, I will frame my lessons around the styles and artists that they like, and will incorporate the fundamentals and the exercises around the music that they enjoy. I will use the artists and the songs that excite my students to frame the lessons that we work on. I use music software to create custom grooves for each of my students to practice to, and also sometimes use a video cam to film my student working on a particular lesson that they are having trouble with, so that when they go home, they have an example of themselves playing the lesson, so they can study it at home to get it right. I am a firm believer in learning all the rules. I am also a firm believer, when you know the rules, to break them all. You have to know the rules to be able to break them. I will provide you with everything you need to shine on your instrument. My teaching technique is something that I developed myself, is quite unique, and, if you follow my program, you will progress REALLY fast. But keep in mind, anything good is worth working for, and if you REALLY want this, you will grow in leaps and bounds. Most of my students have been with me on an average of 4 to 5 years, some 9 or 10 years. I look forward to meeting you and helping you make magic with music! Ciao!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Acoustic 6 &12 string guitars
Electric Guitars
Electric Bass, Fretless Bass, and upright Bass guitars

*** Travel Equipment ***
Everything necessary for my lessons I provide
My student needs an instrument and amp, if needed

*** Specialties ***
I have developed a curriculum that combines my knowledge of music software with my teaching technique. This enables me to create musical templates tailored for each student according to their musical interests, what they would like to focus on, and what their ultimate goals are. For example ...lead guitar, rhythm guitar, acoustic guitar accompaniment to their voice, etc. which ends up making for an exciting experience as my student learns their instrument framed around the styles of music that they enjoy.

Julia B.

Miami, FL

About Julia

Hello, thank you for your interest in taking music classes and reading my profile! :)
My name is Julia Bova,

Over the past 15 years I have taught hundreds of classes both children and adults students. My specialties are:
1. Piano
2. Vocal
3. Music Theory
4. Music composition and improvisation class
5. Ear training

Learning about music can be complicated and confusing especially when there are so many courses; different methods available just click away on internet.
There are a lot to learn as notation, chords, rhythmical patterns, music terminology, music styles and s
o on.

It is like learning new language could be overwhelming and make many students give up on their dream.
Also learning on your own without any step by step instructions, easy- to follow method and goals in mind can make you frustrated and lose your motivation and enthusiasm very fast.

I've been studying music since I was 6 years old. First 7 years in Music school, than 4 years of Music college and another 4 years in Conservatory of Music in Kazakhstan. I graduated as a choir conductor, pianist and vocalist. With 15 years of music studying and 15 years of teaching piano and voice to hundreds of students of all levels I know all struggles and obstacles you might have and I know what works to overcome it and be the best musician you can be!

For me teaching music classes it's not just assignment to make my students understand the concept and develop skills, but much more;

1. First of all, I must know a student's need.

Why do you want to learn?
What is behind of that intention?
What is your goal and how I can help you reach it?
Sometimes we discovering it together in the process of learning setting new and new goals as you progress.

I will be able to help you better and take you to the direction you want to go to after identifying the starting point, where do we begin?

2. Second, I believe that any learning will be successful if you are having fun and good time doing it, feeling encouraged. I'm very generous in praising to my students, high fives, hugs, stickers any anything to make my students feel good about accomplishing even small assignment.
I also know that If you feel bored or frustrated you not going to stick for a long time with your commitment and you not going to learn anything.

Playing a musical instrument or singing is a very personal experience and I design my classes and choose music and techniques the way that it is suit your level and fit your personality.
I try to make my classes fun, challenging and building the momentum so you can get most out the class and most importantly you are having fun while learning and engaged in the process.

3. Third, For my piano, voice and theory classes I use easy to follow method of developing skills, techniques and understanding of the concept. I always break challenging parts in small steps which is makes it easy to understand and learn.

4. Forth, you will always have a goals set up and quick start action plan which is broken into small easy assignments.
The quick start plan shows exactly how you can get going in record time and get off to a great start. For that purpose I use different method books and different music pieces.

You have a clear direction what your goals are and how to achieve them and progress when you practicing on your own.

5. Teaching my students is not a job for me, it's enjoyment and commitment to share my passion for music and knowledge, inspire and encourage them. Music has changed my life and I hope I'll help you to change yours!

My goal is to make every class to be built around these 5 aspects mentioned above, as well as provide value, demonstrate and encourage.

My mission to make sure that my students learning in their own speed without any pressure, without feeling overwhelmed or frustrated, understanding the concept I am teaching to.
Also I want to make sure that they are œwalking out of class with a sense of accomplishment and understanding the concept which is important for making progress and moving forward.

Lastly , I am committed to success of my students and eager to build long term relationship with them.
I'm flexible and committed, some of my students have been with me

Lesson process:
I am teaching one on one classes in my home studio here in North Miami Florida, or via Skype or Google+ Hangout , you could be anywhere in the world and take class with me.

The time of the lessons may vary,
I usually suggest 30 min a trial lesson to œmeet and greet, as well as establish goals.
We will talk about schedule and will set up a regular schedule around convenient time for both.

1. Beginners are taken through the fundamentals.

2. You will explore a range of pieces to expand your skills and begin to identify your preferences.

3. On first lesson you will be learning new exercises to get you started and homework assignments.

4. Also you going to get work/method book and practice plan

Good luck and hope I can help you to take piano playing, singing or music writing to the next level!
If you have any question prior to signing up you are welcome to contact me through Q&A.

Best regards,

Julia Bova

I've had several piano teachers in the past but i would put Julia hands down as the best ive had. She is more than your typical teacher she is a mentor and a friend. She really cares about you reaching your goals and takes the time to find exactly what are your needs and ellaborate a strategy to acomplish them together. And aside from being an excellent teacher, she really is an excellent person that has cared and motivated me throught out my musical journey with her :) So you really cant go wrong choosing her as a teacher, wheter for piano, voice, accompaniment or anything that involves music!

I have had the pleasure of watching Johanna grow as a musician and a gifted music instructor over the past several years. Johanna is very passionate about her music. She possesses a natural talent for music and is academically accomplished. I have seen her excel at improvisation and a more methodical approach to musical performance. Her love for the cello is evident in her enthusiastic and energetic teaching techniques. She is exceedingly patient with all, encourages everyone, and coaxes the very best effort from each and every person she works with. Ideals she passes on to her current and future students.
