Jeremy A.

Casselberry, FL

About Jeremy

I am an accomplished performing musician that has experience playing many different instruments in multiple styles. I believe first and foremost that learning music should be fun and exciting with an emphasis on self exploration and communication. It's these qualities in my own musicianship that have helped me grow a true love of music and have pushed my career forward as a performer.

*** Lesson Details ***
In lessons I use a shifting curriculum that is made to work with the needs of each individual student. I firmly believe in the importance of learning to read music and learning some bas
ic music theory, in my experience this helps the student grow from being able to reproduce the music of others to eventually developing a unique style and sound. After three to six months my beginning level students typically feel comfortable enough to play with other musicians confidently.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The In-Studio lessons take place in the living room seating and a guitar are available. 1 cat and 1 small dog kept separate during lessons.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide all of the necessary educational tools such as listening samples, and printed off hand outs. The student needs to have their own instrument, staff paper and a pencil.

Jeremy is incredibly knowledgeable in every aspect of music, I find myself learning much more than just the guitar! His methods make me feel comfortable with his teaching style and he's extremely patient with me as I'm trying to learn new chords, shapes and scales. I highly recommend someone who is ready to learn any type of instrument as he teaches all different kinds and someone who has become my friend over time! Thanks for everything Jeremy, I look forward to continuing learning!

Liam B.

Eustis, FL

About Liam

I have been successfully teaching for over 15 years.
I studied at the Hartt School of Music and the Hartford Conservatory and I have been performing with various bands and in many musical theater productions over the past 20 years.

*** Lesson Details ***
My approach is to tailor each lesson to the students goals and needs. Everyone learns at a different pace and in different ways so all my students have their own custom lesson plan. I am looking for students who really want to excel and are willing to put in the time to achieve great results.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Guitar amps, Bas
s amp, electronic drum kit. Recording with Garageband

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide music stand, amp/cables, additional hand outs, electronic drum kit.

I expect the student to at least have the instrument they are learning and a music stand is also good.

*** Specialties ***
I teach rock, blues, classical. I typically use Hal Leonard books for sight reading/beginner players.

I was trying to learn to play better on the bass guitar. Liam is an excellent teacher. He was patient to teach me what I wanted to learn. He was organized and gave clear instructions. He gave me examples of exercises to work on to play better.

Lela G.

Deland, FL

About Lela

QUALIFICATIONS:
MUSIC AND EDUCATION:
I am 23 years old and have recently finished school for my degree in Music Therapy and just completed my 900 hour (6 month) internship at a behavioral health hospital.
I have been musically involved for eleven years, gaining experience from many avenues including band, private lessons, and musical gigs. I taught music theory and ear training at an after school music and arts business for 1.5 years and worked with a variety of students ranging from 6 years old to twenty years old. As a music therapist, I am required to be proficient on my main instrument
(flute) plus on guitar and piano. I am also required to be proficient in the creation and implementation of goals and objectives, people skills, and to have an empathetic, understanding, and positive approach in all I do. I believe these skills contribute greatly to the effectiveness of my teaching. I am also qualified and willing to teach adaptive lessons for students with all types of disabilities.

PSYCHOLOGY:
I have a minor in psychology and have always been interested in the subject which has lead me to much research of my own. I have completed a practicum at a behavioral health hospital and an internship at another behavioral health hospital. I have taken multiple psychology classes- a few being abnormal psychology, clinical and counseling psychology, and brain and behavior.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE:
Education experience: I taught music theory for 1.5 years in Tallahassee, Florida. I am currently a certified substitute teacher in Volusia county Florida for elementary through high school and I teach flute sectionals at a local middle school. I am also a teachers aide in two kindergarten classrooms. This job requires me to teach students individually and in small groups. I also do music groups with the kindergarteners once a week. Prior to this I have been a regular dividend in a kindergarten classroom for a semester, have lead flute choir and flute sectionals, and have volunteered often in an elementary art classroom.

TEACHING PHILOSOPHY:
My teaching style is organized yet laid-back. I am understanding and positive in my approach.
I have access to lesson books/textbooks and can make suggestions for you based on your needs and desires.
Our first lessons will be based around assessing your strengths and weaknesses. From there I will create a schedule customized to your specific needs. Your input is important to me as I am always willing to be flexible based on your personal needs and preferences.
Learning is FUN so I will make sure you are enjoying the lessons as well as getting the most out of them that you can!

About availability: If none of my times work for you, let me know and we can definitely figure something out as my schedule is very flexible!

Lela is skilled, organized, patient and well equipped to provide music lessons. She takes her time finding out what your goals are as a student and how to best help you reach them. As an adult getting back into playing, I was very pleased with her teaching style.

Justin R.

Winter Springs, FL

About Justin

Hi, my name is Justin. I have passionately been practicing guitar for all most ten years now and I'm eager to continue passing my knowledge down to anyone willing to commit the time into learning guitar. Over the years now I've been proud to see my students achieve their personal music goals. I have, with great success, taught many students varying from those who couldn't tell you what a tuning peg is, all the way up to those trying to perfect Eddie Van Halen's harmonic fills. I am an extremely patient teacher with the knowledge needed to teach most styles of guitar playing.

Justin has been teaching my 14 yr old son guitar for the last month. He has such an easiness to his personality that he has quickly developed a great connection with my son. His love for music is genuine and I can tell it is spreading to my son. He is encouraging and friendly but still maintains reasonable expectations for commitment and practice. I couldn't be happier with Justin. I would totally recommend him.
