About Heather M.
More important than my conservatory education and my experience as an educator and a performer is my passion for teaching music and acting and my undying belief that anyone can learn to be a musician and an actor. I'm currently available to teach lessons in my own St. Augustine home studio and online around the globe.

I'm a cum laude graduate of Westminster Choir College in Princeton, New Jersey and a winner of its merit scholarship.
After performing with the New York and Royal Philharmonics, the New Jersey and Virginia Symphonies, the American Boy Choir and the internationally renowned opera star, Andrea Bocelli, studying opera and piano at Westminster Choir College and performance art and improvisational acting at East Carolina University in North Carolina, and appearing in shows and pageants across the east coast, I found my life'
s work in 2003 when I began teaching music.

I've successfully taught hundreds of different students since 2003, from 5-year-olds with special needs to middle-aged professional opera singers, from a professor in Saudi Arabia to a 65-year-old doctor of music, from kids of Radio Disney to students of the famed Actors Studio in New York, from busy stay-at-home parents to retirees with bucket lists, from CEOs to touring singer-songwriters.

I've created and led a workshop about singing called, "The Whole Body Singer". I've written dozens of articles about music and music education for the blog at TakeLessons.com.

My extensive knowledge of the voice has encouraged and empowered hundreds of singers and prepared many of them to win competitions, pageants and auditions, as well as roles in operas and musicals.

Having both taught myself piano and received formal training at a conservatory has prepared me to teach almost anyone how to play.
The intensive training and education that I received at Westminster Choir College in songwriting, music theory and sight reading has benefited my students at every level.

My current work as singer and keyboardist in the acoustic rock duo, Timberwood, has strengthened my knowledge of a broad range of styles and genres. I have a strong commitment to continuing my education. That's why I recently (2014) studied songwriting online with the Berklee College of Music in Boston.

In the lessons that I teach, I'm flexible, positive and encouraging. While I want my students to have fun and love music, not dread it, I expect hard work and persistence. I am caring, patient, nurturing, and compassionate. In piano lessons, I usually allow the student to choose a piece with which to warm up and then move on to technique and repertoire. In voice lessons, I usually warm up the singer and discuss technique and sight singing before focusing on song choices. Joan Frey Boytim wrote a book for voice that I like to use, and I like the Estelle Liebling exercises for the more advanced singer. Hanon exercises are a big part of my piano curriculum, and I enjoy the Bastien and Alfred books for young and old. I have used completely random songs pulled out of a piano bench and a karaoke CD for kids. I will use almost anything I can get my hands on if it means effectively teaching music.
Acting lessons consist of exercises and games that apply learned concepts, and monologue and audition coaching. Parents, siblings and spouses are always welcome to observe lessons quietly.

About Jessica
I absolutely love teaching! I taught private piano lessons in Gainesville, Florida and throughout my doctorate program. I graduated from Dickinson College with Neuroscience, Biology, and Music degrees. I have been playing piano for over 20 years through private lessons as well as national and international competitions. I have always had piano in my life and love to share my passion with others!

*** Lesson Details ***
I love to make lessons fun and painless. I require minimal practice time outside of the lesson (although more is always better!!) I commonly use Faber Piano Adventures series for beginner students, but I also love to give a student another piece from a well known composer to give them a bit of a challenge for us to work through together. I am extremely understanding of busy schedules. After 3 months of beginner lessons,
my students knows how to play several small pieces and are developing their technique. By technique, I mean how to sit at the piano, place the hands at the piano, and touch the keys! They will feel comfortable playing their pieces and some may play them by memory! I plan the lessons so that they are always very fun.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have an upright apartment piano with absolutely beautiful tone. It is located in the living room with seating for parents.

*** Specialties ***
Primarily classical music

About Greg
For the last thirty years, from the day that I got my first electric as a teenager, to my work today as an acoustic guitarist for the band, Timberwood, and currently as a teacher of more than forty students a week, my life has been devoted to the guitar.

I'm an experienced veteran of the metal and hard rock scene of the 80's and 90's in eastern Virginia. As I grew older, I took formal lessons focusing on classical guitar, while growing to love the blues. The year that I turned 34, I quit my corporate job, took a leap of faith, helped to build and brand a new music school in Chesapeake, Virginia, working there as a full-time music school manager and guitar instructor.

I now teach an incredibly diverse group of students of every age, background and experience level in my home studio here in the fast-growing World Golf Village are
a of Saint Augustine, Florida and at the Jacksonville School of Music in Jacksonville, Florida.

My teaching philosophy is simple - teach how to play the guitar, not just how to play the songs. I pride myself on being a positive and patient teacher, dedicated to his craft and to each student.

I had the pleasure of recording an album of songs with a trio of local musicians, Joshua Bowlus on piano, Gary Starling on guitar and Rebecca Zappen on violin. It was a collection of tunes that I had sung through the past years on gigs and with home recordings with my husband, Tony Tamburello on piano. The album was a big hit with my friends and family and me !! I sent it to a radio jock in Montreal also and he played it on the air. Needless to say, Gina was the master mixer at the controls !! Love her !!!

I am a college level jazz musician.
My primary instruments are jazz guitar and upright bass.
Growing up I have always wanted to sing but never could find a qualified teacher.

Luckily, after extensive research online for vocal teachers I discovered Kara.
I have been taking lessons with her for a while now and she's wonderful.
I always have many questions for her in my lessons and she always has a knowledgable response.

I feel like I'm progressing and finally learning how to sing properly with someone who knows their stuff.

I would highly recommend studying with her.

About Jade
My name is Jade Adam Martin and I am a skilled guitarist/bassist.

I am a 2017 graduate of Jacksonville University with a Bachelor of Music Jazz Studies and Commercial Music, Technological & Performance emphasis, a professional Jazz performer, music teacher, inventor and businessman.

I offer guitar, bass (electric and upright) and music software lessons.

I spent my college years focusing on how to become the best guitar musician and most versatile overall performer. I spent my first two music formative years in the music program at the University of Central Florida (UCF). I transferred to Jacksonville University to take advantage and expand my music skills gaining access and capitalizing on more advanced music technology and sound engineering classes unavailable at UCF while maintaining almost a 4.0 GPA during my college
career.

I believe that in order to be the best teacher to teach a student, you must be able to perform and lead by example. In addition you must have a good formal academic foundation in music with a 4 year degree from reputable college to have solid working teaching credentials.

I know from experience having a good foundation in the basics of music is extremely important to advance musically. Once a student has a solid footing, then progressing to more advanced concepts goes smoother at an individual pace. In most cases this and a good work ethic of rigorous structured practice leads to successfully performing at a high level in any music style.

Guitar is my main instrument and I teach most guitar music styles. (Rock/Jazz/Country, etc.).

I love playing Gypsy Jazz. It’s a style of jazz single handily pioneered by the French Guitarist Django Reinhardt in the 1930s which requires extreme precision and skill when playing an acoustic guitar.

I am the lead guitarist and leader of the Bleu Cats Jazz band playing this swinging variety in Jacksonville. I am also the inventor and manufacturer of the Bleu Cats Neck Balance accessory for the Telecaster guitar and General Manager of my own company the Bleu Cats LLC and CEO of DM COST ONE, LLC a consulting company.
