Dan is a fantastic instructor! I am a 27 year old whom had never touched a violin in my life before Dan. Now I own a violin, practice every week, and can read basic music sheets. He is very knowledgeable, patient, funny, and flexible. If you're looking to learn a new instrument while having a good time, look no further my friend. What are you waiting for?

About Norman T.

About Norman
I am located in the Tampa, Florida area and I live in Lutz. I have enjoyed teaching and helping students of all ages for 28 years in achieving their goals in learning to play their instruments. Educated at Columbus State University with a Bachelor of Music Education degree, I teach many instruments including piano, guitar, including Classical style, banjo, saxophone and clarinet. If you would like to start on the trumpet or trombone, I can help you as well. I specialize in working with the novice player, giving them a solid foundation in instrumental technique and musical knowledge. I can also help those who have some experience on their instruments who are looking to advance.

*** Lesson Details ***
My goal for every student is to experience learning their instrument in an environment that is both encouraging and rewarding. I exh
ibit patience with the student knowing what it takes to develop new skills and I work hard in helping each student feel at ease in expressing themselves. I have used many different materials and methods over the years, depending on the individual student's needs and desires to play their music. I do stress learning to read music notation so that you can approach with confidence any piece of music that you would like to play. With the proper dedication, every student can enjoy making music in a short period of time, progressing all the while in their musical journey.

*** Specialties ***
I have used many of the published methods for all of the instruments over the years. I am always open to any approach that will work for any given student.

About Thomas
Hello friends!

Welcome, and thank you for visiting my profile. My name is Tom Ball, and I'm here to help you excel on your instrument by adapting to your personal learning style while also using tried-and-true methods developed over the course of my 10+ years teaching classical, jazz, and blues guitar, as well as mandolin and music theory.

First things first: I'll want to understand your background and dominant learning styles so that we can communicate in a manner that is clear, concise and highly effective.

Once we've gotten to know each other a bit and defined your primary goals on your instrument, I'll develop a lesson plan and system of evaluation to ensure that you're progressing at a satisfactory rate.

A few important things:

1) Do not be deceived; freedom on your instrument requires discipline. You can indeed create anything
that you wish, but having an idea or dream won't do you any good unless you have the requisite understanding of how to apply the proper tools to bring the idea into being.

That's where practice comes in, which should be highly specific so that you can get the most out of your time. I'll help you with that.

2) That being said, while discipline and professionalism are absolutely necessary to get optimal results, it is always important to have fun and to learn something new every day.

Therefore, lessons with me won't include tons of papers and homework and an air of misplaced academic superiority. We'll be highly specific and effective and have fun learning new things together in a laid-back, encouraging atmosphere.

I'm grateful for the opportunity to help you reach your musical goals, and eagerly awaiting your message. Let's get started today!

Thank you,
Thomas E. Ball, III

Tom is attentive to the needs/direction/abilities of the student. Me. Discerning the individual, Tom formulates and adjusts appropriately a series of lessons to encourage the “student” to progress. There’s not a magic formula, but a custom discerned lesson plan constantly open to change. The best.

Tom and I had a few lessons together that completely shaped the way I see how music is played and taught me about the relationship between theory and practice. If you’re into learning about more than a simple chords in a song, and want to take your ability to play and understand music to a higher level, look no further than Tom. He’s talented and experienced in not only music, but in many other varieties of modalities of health and wisdom, and can meet you wherever your skill and experience level is at. Highly recommended
