Kristin M.

Boca Raton, FL

About Kristin

Hello!

I'm Kristin. I'm 24 years old and grew up right here in Boca Raton, FL.

I am a recent graduate of Drake University (in DSM, IA)
with a Bachelor's in Music Education and Performance; Flute and Piano.

At Drake, I received a musical scholarship covering 80% of my tuition costs.
I was also honored to sit as Principal Flute in both the Drake Symphony Orchestra and
the Drake Wind Symphony, the top performing groups at the University.

I started to play the flute and piano in second grade, and
my love and passion for music have only grown and matured since then.

I enjoy sh
aring what I've learned, and learning from my students as well.

I am excited and thrilled by the opportunity to work with you!

For rent:
Yamaha beginner flute
Intermediate Armstrong flute

Kristin is an amazing Piano and Flute instructor. She has a rock solid foundation in music and music theory but also really listens to her students and what they are seeking out of her instruction. She is completely dedicated to her students and great at encouraging and bringing out the best in them. I found Kristin to be extremely knowledgeable, talented, and kind. Would recommend her to musicians and aspiring musicians of all skill levels and ages.

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!

*** Travel Equipment ***
Everything necessary for my lessons I provide

*** 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.

I've taken lessons from about ten different teachers since I was 15 years old some taught me more music and some taught me to play songs on the guitar. but no one ever put it all together like Steve Gagnon. Every lesson Steve teaches me something new and covers music and technique. and teaches me to play my own style. rather then just copying others weather you are young or older Steve will teach you as an individual with patience.

Sarah has been an amazing tutor to work with. She is good at explaining concepts, making them very easy to understand. I think I have learned more in the few months I have been working with her, than I had in the three years of Spanish classes. Lessons are never dull with her animated personality.

She is also very accommodating to my schedule, and goes out of her way to help me with proof reading assignments. I would definitely call her again if I were to take another Spanish class.
