Coaching and assistance in making lyrics and melodies come to life in an organized, creative way. We can help you prepare your songs for demos, recordings, publishing and performance.

About Allen
I am a University of Miami School of Music graduate with extensive experience in music education, theory, songwriting and arranging.
As a winner of the Florida State Concerto Competition at 17, and having performed with some of South Florida's best singers and musicians, I offer a wealth of knowledge about how to connect music theory with music practice.

*** Lesson Details ***
I specialize in creating individual lesson plans - no 'cookie cutter' methods, and no lectures about practicing!

My teaching style is free-flowing and relaxed. I'm very willing to adapt to any and all situations in order to make music education work for YOU.

My music reading curriculum helps student achieve quick and early success by focusing on one note at a time - instead of expecting you to play entire songs right away. This builds confidence and se
ts up my students for long-term success.

*** Equipment ***
It is preferred that private students have a piano or full size keyboard.
I also provide games, piano accompaniment tracks, and other accessories to make lessons more interactive and fun.

*** Specialties ***
Jazz, Gospel, Pop, Blues, Group Piano

Take your creativity to the next level and learn how to craft songs. Everyone has their own unique way of putting songs together but there are some tools and tricks to make the process easier and to take compositions to the next level. I've been writing songs now for over 10 years and I'd like to help you do the same.

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.

About Lucian W.

Miami, FL

View Full Profile

- Analyzing the 4 types of compositional concepts: melodic, lyric, harmonic, and rhythmic
- song structures (verse, chorus, bridge, pre-chorus etc.)
- chord progressions: diatonic (within the key) and non-diatonic (outside of the key)
- harmonic rhythm

About Lucian
Lucian W is an alumnus of Berklee College of Music in Boston and former faculty member of the Hartford Conservatory. His vocal studies have been with Jacqueline Jarrett and David Baker in Connecticut, Jane Ellison at Loyola University in Montreal, noted operatic tenor Carmine Gagliardi in New York City, and Gina Moretta (whose students have included Gloria Estefan and Jon Secada) in Miami. He studied privately with world famous jazz guitarists George Benson and Chuck Wayne and has had a full time performing career of several decades as a guitarist, pianist, vocalist, bassist, arranger and orchestra leader.
Lucian believes that by sharing his enjoyment of making music with his students, he can give them confidence in other areas. That is because, in order to make music, they must go through a process of physical discovery through pr
actice. They are then empowered by experiencing the connections between inspiration, work, and pleasure.
He performs, as a solo entertainer, an unusually wide ranging repertoire because of his versatility on guitar, piano, and vocals. Being an accomplished arranger with a vast library of charts also allows him to lead a ten piece orchestra as competently as a trio or quartet. He has performed extensively in New York, Chicago, Cape Cod, and Florida.

*** Lesson Details ***
I always try to make lessons as comfortable and enjoyable as possible yet challenging enough to maintain interest. I build lessons around the student's individual interests (specific songs or styles) so that he or she can learn the technical fundamentals in a relevant context.
My own curriculum is supplemented by the following:
Guitar: Hal Leonard Guitar Method, Aaron Shearer Classical Guitar Method
Piano: Alfred's Basic Piano Course , John W. Schaum Piano Course
Voice: Jeffrey Allen's Secrets of Singing, Nicola Vaccai Practical Method

*** Studio Equipment ***
Hardman baby grand acoustic piano
OptimusMD1600 electronic keyboard
Crate TX50D guitar amplifer

*** Specialties ***
- Singing lesson time is generally divided 50/50 between voice building and repertoire. I accompany vocalists on both piano and guitar, teaching the melody notes as they are sung along with the piano. Then, once the melody is learned, I often switch to the guitar with just chordal backing. The acoustic guitar is also softer than the piano and lets the singer hear their own voice better. For voice building, I use my own concepts plus approaches of famous voice teachers like Jeffrey Allen, Seth Riggs, and Anthony Frissel.
- I am very experienced performing all styles of guitar and can cater to the student's specific area of interest, whether it be rock, folk, classical, or jazz.
- With piano, I work on fundamentals of reading and technique. Learning basic harmony and chord construction starting with triads (3 note chords), the student can soon read single stave lead sheets (a form of music notation widely utilized by professional musicians) as well as the grand staff. This approach trains the ear and makes learning how to play popular songs much easier.

Extensive experience here both as a teacher and published composer.

About Axel
I found out early on (age of 13) that I had a facility to teach and help friends understand music concepts. Some said it's a gift, others said it's vocation. To me it was just sharing what I loved. Since I had already decided to make music my career I made it a point to learn more and all I could in this field. Three degrees later (B.M /Berklee College of Music, B.M and M.M. /University of Miami) having studied under amazing Masters and years of performing, touring, producing and recording I have a lot to offer anyone, any age, any level when they choose me as their music teacher.

*** Lesson Details ***
My students would describe our lessons as fun and enjoyable. That's because I want everyone to learn the basics of music in a relaxed and comfortable environment. I'm easy going and encouraging in character and make it a point to expla
in in the simplest manner the many concepts of music. I help students develop good habits of practice so they can improve their skills by giving them personal tips. Each student is unique and learns at a particular pace. I'm in tune with the student and move accordingly helping him/her navigate thru the music lesson while providing assistance towards reaching their specific goals.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano /keyboards/ protools in my studio with living room seating for parents. Coffee/water always complementary. Protools recording studio available for my student singers at discounted rates. Affordable and competitive rates for amateur-professional singers looking to record/produce a demo.

*** Travel Equipment ***
None. Currently not traveling to students homes. Lessons available at my studio only.

*** Specialties ***
Studied Jazz & Classical. Performed Pop, Rock, R&B and Latin musical styles.

I can help you write your own songs and teach you the music theory that applies in your songs as well!

About Dyce
Dyce’s action-packed lessons get aspiring students learning real songs in no time—all while teaching them music theory and scales that connects the music to relatable, practical theory. His custom-tailored lessons are based on this realization. “I know that all of my students are unique, both as people, and as musicians,” Dyce states, “so I realized that my lessons should celebrate these differences.” Instead of following a rigid, “cookie-cutter” approach to teaching, he makes allowances for these differences, and custom tailors a lesson plan that enriches their musical tastes, goals, and strengths. Dyce has learned, over two decades of playing and teaching professionally, when to push students—and when to stay out of the way. This sort of expert guidance helps students flourish, because they learn music on their own terms.

During the past 10 years, I have started coaching interested persons in writing songs the way I do: I start with a melody line that pops into my head by the way I fuel myself in expectancy for new tunes and moods to express. My method uses my guitar, so if you play guitar, but feel stuck and not able to write songs, I should be able to help. I use chordal arrangements to bring forth a tune; then, if it feels like there must be lyrics, I write what words are somehow connected to the musical mood I have created. Within a couple of lessons, according to your desire, you should be able to craft an interesting song. I can also help you come up with a mood and melody line to poems/lyrics that as yet have no music.

About Leidys
Hi, at the Miami Piano Studio we love to teach children as young as 3 years old and adults using our own method. The Brain-Based Piano Method is a Mindful and Comprehensive System to learn music and piano that incorporates the principles and practices used by the great masters of western music and the latest scientific findings on how we learn. Our method incorporates the now rediscovered art of Partimenti, a way to see and understand music that allows students to make music in real time (compose, improvise). We, my husband and I, started creating our method in 2012 when we could not find a comprehensive method conceived with today's parents and children needs in mind. We are proud to say that our method has proved to be fun, engaging, effective and practical. our students learn from early on the basics of music: ear training, music theor
y, piano technique, reading and writing notes, improvization, composition, and more. For us creativity is first. We constantly encourage our students to be creative from the very beginning. Our method is a complete system for learning the piano that includes books, rewards, teaching materials, musical story books, recordings and video tutorials accessible online. When you Join us, you will become part of a creative and dynamic studio! You will learn how to see the connections present in music and to transfer all that knowledge to other aspects of your lives. I hope to meet you soon to start a very exciting musical learning journey!

My daughter loves going to piano class, and asks when she is going back. I am amazed by the things that she has learned so quickly, and in such a short period of time. Each class introduces her to something new, or allows her to strengthen her skills in a new way. This method of teaching piano is so innovative because my daughter has learned how to play the right and left hand of a musical score with clapping and body movements. She has also learned to conduct, play with 5 fingers, and sing songs. All of this, and she has only had 4 classes. The connection to math and reading are amazing, and are evident during each moment. Highly recommended.

I am a member of ASCAP and SACM songwriter societies and I would love to help you communicate your ideas and experiences through melodic ideas. Rhetoric figures, rhymes, phrasing, smart analogies and more tools will become second nature for your songwriting craft.

About Rodolfo
Vocal Coaching & Wellbeing Singing

I have been teaching singing for 9+ years. I've enhanced singing lessons into a complete program of vocal mastery/songwriting with a blend of wellbeing techniques.

I am an active music artist, music production collage graduate, "The voice" ex-participant and vocal producer with vast experience in online music marketing.

Today's music industry requires to be prepared and aware of its fundamentals. Voice mastery, digital distribution and streaming, producing, audio recording, royalties, interpretation, social media, songwriting, copyright, are all random pieces of a puzzle you must put together in order to succeed.

I've been making music for over 22 years and I've felt the pain of figuring out this puzzle by myself. I've been copyright stolen, false magic lesson invested, lousy contract scammed
, paying to perform, falling short of budget, trading soul for fame and many other beauties of this industry in my journey to try to make a living out of expressing myself.

My goal today is to use my experience to shorten the learning curve of others. My scope is on keeping you focused on your craft and introducing you to technologic tools that will allow you to keep expressing yourself purely and make it a sustainable lifestyle or an empowering hobby by seeing progress and results.

Stay focused on your dreams

As a stage performer whose always wanted to learn how to properly sing, lessons were always on my mind. The decision to pick Rodolfo is one that I don't regret. He does a great job at interacting with students and tries to use real world examples to explain the instrument that we can't see, our vocal chords. This making the learning process much easier. He always comes set and ready with a lesson plan for the session. He also likes to check up on your progress in between session to ensure that you're executing the exercises correctly. Rodolfo is a person that cares about your success and progress. I would highly recommend him to anyone who's looking for vocal coach.
