About Hallie
Hello there! Do you or your loved ones have an interest in music? So do I! That is why I am here to teach and share my own passion for music. I love working with children and have two boys of my own. I love teaching music and instil passion for learning into every one of my students.

Having grown up in a musical family with my mother a professional violinist, I have been exposed to the joys of music since childhood. I learned how to play Suzuki piano at the age of three, and later percussion and string instruments from when I was six years old. In high school I joined the band playing flute. I loved playing flute and piccolo so much that I decided to take this as my career and went to Interlochen Arts Academy where I excelled in my performance. I later went to Prague Conservatory and Czech Budweiss Conservatory and played with the
Prague Film Orchestra. Even more recently I have been a teacher for the Flutes and Strings classes at Unison World School in Dehradun, India.

I have enjoyed having a very successful studio here in Tampa, and hope to enrich your life with music soon!

*** Lesson Details ***
My approach to teaching varies with the age level of each student. With younger students, imitation is often one of the best methods of learning and I prefer the Suzuki method for students up to age 8, especially with strings. For older children and adults, learning music notation and basic music theory for a full understanding of musical language are more important to get them to the level where they can learn any music that they want to play for fun. For students who wish to excel in their school band, a more practical approach with technique specific warm-ups and exercises seems to be the best in general.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The In-Studio lessons are taught in the living room which includes music stands, sheet music, whiteboard, video recording equipment and microphone, and seating for parents/students. No pets. Parking in driveway. Siblings are welcome.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide metronome, and tools for minor instrument repair. Students should provide their own music stands and sheet music.

*** Specialties ***
Suzuki method, Hrimaly, Taffanel et Gaubert, Patricia George

My son has been taking piano lessons with Lisa for more than 6 months. Lisa is a great teacher. She is very patient and knowledgeable. She's able to correct my son's problems. I've seen tremendous growth and improvement on him since he's been studying piano with Lisa. Lisa is also very willing to work with us on scheduling issues as well. I would definitely recommend her.

I had never touched a piano before selecting Ray for my teacher. After just a few lessons he has me playing and improving with each time I practice. Because of his great teaching ability I'm on the right path to playing well. He's very patient and explains everything in terms that are easily understood. I'm not sure I would be progressing so well if it wasn't for his exceptional teaching skills.

By having Audrey as my teacher, I've learned how to take care of my voice and constantly grow as a singer. She helped me gain self-confidence and made me only want to become even better. Instead of simply singing songs and not doing much else, with her, you learn how to use your voice in amazing ways. I would recommend her to anyone looking to sing any style of music who wants to keep their voice for the rest of their life.

We've been seeing Mr. Christian since November for beginner flute lessons for our 12-year-old daughter. From the beginning, Mr. Christian has been incredibly patient and encouraging while being firm and uncompromising. Our daughter has gone from having difficulty with "Hot Cross Buns" to confidently attempting All-State Band pieces, largely thanks to Mr. Christian's instruction. In February, our daughter scored a superior in Solo and Ensemble after just three months of Mr. Christian's tutelage, plus she is jumping to middle school symphonic band next year. We cannot recommend Mr. Christian highly enough for anyone, of any age, aspiring to learn how to play the flute well.

About Lesia
I moved to the US from the Ukraine 5 years ago, where I graduated from the Kharkov State University of Arts with Bachelor degree in music arts and was qualified as orchestra and ensemble player and teacher of flute and ensemble. I have more than 10 years of teaching experience. I taught flute and ensemble playing, provided music activity for children from 4 years old and up. My students participated in concerts and competitions. I also had an experience working in, the Orchestra of the Dnipropetrovsk State Academic Opera and Ballet Theatre, Ukraine, where I had a role of the second flute and piccolo. While I was working in the theater, I played in such performances as "Swan Lake", "Sleeping Beauty", "The Nutcracker" by P. Tchaikovsky, "The Wedding of Figaro" by V.А. Mozart .
My specialty is a classic, but I am familiar with different
styles of music and even played in a reggae band when I was at university and as a teacher, I have always focused on the student's personality. I can work with beginner and intermediate students In a group or private and provide a friendly and individual approach to each student In developing flute playing skills: tone, posture, techniques, music theory and basic improvisation skills.

My 7 year-old son began learning recorder with Leasia as a complete beginner. He is taking lessons with Lesia as a music teacher for the past 9 months. She is patient and very friendly. Lesia taught him many things so far, such as how to read notes, all the fundamental techniques of recorder playing including correct posture, hand position, fingering and breathing. Also, my son learned how to play simple classic melodies like "Mary had a little lamb”, “Old Old McDonald had a farm”, “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” and etc. We are gradually transitioning from recorder to flute now. My son looks forward to Lesia’s lessons, and is enjoying music. I recommend Lesia to everyone and anyone interested in learning to play recorder and flute.

About Karen
Karen Whipple has been teaching voice for over 20 years and performing professionally for over 25. She enjoys helping her students find their own individual voice through the application of a solid vocal foundation. She earned her bachelors of music with a vocal performance concentration from Palm Beach Atlantic University in West Palm Beach, FL. Karen works with her students (of all ages and levels) on strengthening their natural “instrument” and stretching its range - both musically and emotionally. Her experience as an LA actor also has helped her work with her students on sympathetically connecting with their songs as well. She likes to prepare her students for anything they might encounter as a working singer: developing versatility in musical style; taking away the fear of sight-reading; andmost important, maintaining a healthy voi
ce. One of the most valuable traits Karen brings to her lessons is her many years of experience as a professional singer in Los Angeles. She sings in a variety of different arenas, which helps her to stay versatile and also keeps her informed of current musical trends. She sang with the Los Angeles Master Chorale for over 10 years, which performed regularly at Disney Hall. She sings classical as well as jazz and pop, having performed with LA’s vocal jazz group, Sixth Wave as well as joining Imogen Heap at the Greek Theater. She has also sung with the famed a cappella vocal group, Voices of Liberty, both at Epcot in Orlando, FL, and Disneyland in Southern CA. Performing both solo and ensemble work has strengthened her passion for making music both individually and as part of a whole, which she feels is a great skill to possess in seeking success in the music business. Karen has worked extensively as a session singer; you can hear her on such films as Star Trek and Despicable Me 3, such TV shows as Medium and Family Guy. You also may have heard her on a few national spots, namely, Microsoft, Suave, and Subway.

As a result of all she has learned through her own education and personal vocal development, as well as her experience as a professional singer, lessons with Karenoffer a healthy, practical, and well-rounded technique. Healthy in that it involves a very natural placement of the voice. Practical in that it allows you to take risks and try different styles. Well-rounded in that it prepares you for a variety of musical opportunities.
