Piano is a great instrument to start out with. It can help you learn so many things. We'll break down music fundamentals and learn good technique from the beginning so you can set yourself up to excel in the future.

About Erik
I want to teach you how to express yourself through music. I've been inspired by music since I was young and have been involved in one way or another since I started piano lessons at age 3. I've been playing guitar for over fifteen years and written and recorded music for about eight. Whether you want to go into music seriously as I have, or just use music as a hobby and way to express yourself, I want to help you accomplish your goal.

*** Lesson Details ***
Each person is different and learns in a slightly different way. Having said that, there are certain essentials which must not be ignored. If you've never taken lessons before, we'll start with the fundamentals, how to hold the guitar properly, make chords, build up finger strength, properly tune the guitar, know all the strings, and most importantly play songs. You will lea
rn how to read basic music, but I can teach you how to play by ear too. Before we have completed our series you or your children will have basic knowledge of all these things and a desire to explore at least some of these aspects further.

For me, the most interesting music reveals the unique perspective and feelings of the person who makes it. Having conquered the essentials I will encourage you to be creative with your developing talents. I can teach you about song structure and I can teach you how to jam with your friends. If you are interested in writing and composing, I can help you with that too. We can take a look at your favorite artists and try to discover how they accomplished and perfected their sound. If you want to learn how to record I have a computer equipped with Pro Tools and would be glad to show you how to use it.

You'll spend time listening to me of course, but I hope to spend much of my time listening to you as well. If reading music doesn't inspire you we can focus more on learning by ear. It's up to you. You'll need your own instrument obviously, though you can leave it at home if you don't want to carry it back and forth. I have guitars here. I request that you purchase a book with text and exercises so that you can practice and study what you learn in the class. Even if you do not want to read music, you will need to know the neck and conquer scale formations and chords. We can choose the text based on your needs.

Lessons are designed for training in music notation, rhythms, technique and fundamental theory, to develop skills for playing musical compositions cleanly, correctly and up to speed.

About Karen
I am a professional singer with over 25 years experience performing individually and with bands, orchestras, ensembles, choirs, and a cappella groups in concerts, theater, clubs and festivals, nationally and internationally.

I began singing in the church choir, talent shows and performing with various groups as a teenager. Music allowed me creative freedom and excitement and took me to a world of wonder. Attending music schools and colleges I studied voice, piano, performance technique, theory, sight singing/ear training, composition, jazz theory, improvisation, world music, and musical theater.

*** Lesson Details ***

I enjoy teaching music and inspiring students. As a vocal coach and piano instructor, I tailor lessons to fit students' particular needs to develop skills as they prepare for auditions, musical careers or music fo
r personal enjoyment. Lessons move at a pace that is comfortable for, and challenging to, students. I aim to strengthen musical intuition and insure steady and thorough progress.

I offer In-Home training, allowing students to take private lessons at their convenience in their homes.

I can help teach jazz piano, classical, contemporary and improvisation.

About Tonya
Hi, there! My name is Antonina and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons for over 10 years and although I help foster technically advanced students, I mostly pride myself on the fact that I help students fall into a lifelong love with music! Although with time students tend to lose their interest due to the self-discipline required to succeed at playing an instrument, I make sure to offer a fresh, inspirational, and engaging approach to my lessons. I introduce many different styles, performance skills, composition, and most importantly the ability for self-expression through music. I have been playing, teaching, and performing my entire life and have a huge passion to share the gift of music!

I've had several piano teachers over the years, but never came across anyone quite like Tonya. It's rare to find music teachers of her caliber in South Florida. Besides being a great teacher she is also an incredibly talented musician (song writer and singer) in her own right. Highly recommended!

I've never taken singing lessons before, I had two 30min singing lessons with Ariel and it was very impressive to me how much knowledge he can share with you in only thirty min, specially with someone who has no understanding on the subject. He's very motivating and e makes you feel that it's possible to become a singer it's just a matter of practice! Looking forward to see him soon! This is a five star instructor!

Besides being fun and instructive, my class has the purpose of addressing knowledge according to the student's interests and need. With teaching experience for about 12 years already, it is important to me to have a connection with my students. I am a pianist with a strong foundation in Classical Music, Composer, and Vocalist, and I would like to offer opportunities for exposure for those ones interested. I do record and produce my own students because I believe it is important to achieve goals in everything we do with passion and dedication. I see music as a positive tool from different perspectives; to develop personalities, to create an inner a more positive world, to communicate and express. We never know what is really inside of our souls until we get in touch with the magic of MUSIC!

About Waldo
I am a professional Pianist, Composer, Choir Conductor, and Vocalist who also write songs, orchestrate, and make arrangements. Cuban who studied primarily in Cuba (ENA and ISA), and finished studying in the USA. I have played in several important Concert Halls, among them, it is included Carnegie Hall in NY. I have worked on several projects including music for TV and Musical Theater.

Even though I studied Classical Piano, I love Pop Music, Jazz, and I am always open to new genres, as long it is done with good taste and makes a positive impact on others. Creative, fun, professional and knowledgeable is the way I define my ART.

I have won several awards since I was younger after starting studying music at the age of 15, and since then I have had an intense career performing and creating music for endless different projects, such as
playing music alive for a play, composing music for Symphonic Orchestra, Contemporary music for different formats (like piano, violin, and clarinet), or even Musical Theater.

Teaching is one of my passions, and I have seen some of my students to be successful in National Musical Contests, such in Jazz in WorldStrides on Stage in New York City.

My 8 year old son had his second lesson and it is looking promising! Waldo is able to capture his attention and motivate him to learn! My kid is quick to tell you when he doesn’t want to do something anymore and when it comes to his piano lesson he’s ready to go! Looking forward to seeing his progression and love for music grow!
