During lessons, we will learn proper playing techniques and reading notation. I can prepare you for a School orchestra or if you just want to learn popular songs for fun. My goal is to make all lessons with be fun, engaging, and you will look forward to the next lesson.

About Nicole
Nicole began her musical journey in Long Island, New York when she began piano lessons at age five. While receiving training on piano, she joined her elementary school orchestra in the 3rd grade and quickly soared with violin. During this period, Nicole began learning music theory and the art of reading music. As a fourth grader, Nicole would go on to conduct and tune every instrument in her orchestra during rehearsal. She always competed and won many NYSMA competitions for violin while attending music seminars and workshops. It was then that her teacher realized she had a gift. Nicole continued with piano lessons and began teaching herself guitar. Later, after college, she bought herself a drum set and began to teach herself drums.
As an adult, Nicole studied to become an elementary teacher and worked in the New York State Sch
ool Districts for over five years. Shortly after receiving her master€'s degree for Literacy Education, Nicole decided to attempt to share her passion for music. In 2007, Nicole opened a music studio in Holbrook, New York. Here, she refined her music teaching skills while establishing Nicolex Inc. Music Island as a leading source of quality music education. Her summer traveling music program allowed her students to experience live performances as well as create music groups with peers with the same passion for music.
Nicole now resides in Tampa, Florida with hopes to spread her business as well as the joy of music to children and adults. She currently is the singer for a local original rock band. In this band, Nicole writes songs, sings, plays guitar/piano (not all at the same time). Needless to say, she understands the importance that music has had in her life and wishes to ignite that passion in other music lovers.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching style is best labeled as kind but firm. I take my job very seriously and want wholeheartedly for my students to have music as a part of their life, not just a part of their day. I love to laugh and have fun but I will definitely expect my students to practice and complete any homework I assign and be prepared for the following lesson. Simply stated, music is fun and the love of my life, but if I still practice, you will as well. Otherwise, I always believe in teaching songs my students are interested in and will expand their musical skills. My experience as a public school teacher had enhanced my sense of finding individual needs of every student. Therefore, I always differentiate lessons to suit my students interest while teaching them the foundations every musician needs in order to be successful. My specialty is teaching a variety of instruments. I play drums, guitar, bass, piano, and sing as well. So, if one instrument is not for you, I can teach you something different without a problem. Long story short, friends, you are in good hands.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Full Service music room: Keyboard, Full drum kit, Electric Guitar with 30 watts Amp and Microphone/ vocal monitor.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can bring a 76 key Yahama YPG-235 Keyboard for your household to use for lessons for a small monthly rental fee. I have an Epiphone Electric Guitar with 30w amplifier. Will also bring microphone and monitor for vocal lessons.

*** Specialties ***
I have taught mostly Rock, Blues, and Classical genres for Piano, Guitar, Drums. Vocally, I specialize in R&B, Broadway, Pop, Top 100 and alternative/Hard Rock. I will adapt to your needs.

Quite possibly the world's most popular musical instrument. The violin is relatively small and is tuned with a high E string to play high-pitched melodies. This instrument is the most popular choice for lessons as well.

About Trevor
First things first: thank you for taking the time to look at my profile! I realize that you have many choices when it comes to a music teacher in the Tampa Bay area, so I appreciate you taking the time to read a little about me.

I began teaching in 2008. I earned an Associate of Arts in Music from Hillsborough Community College in 2011, and I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Music from the University of South Florida in 2013. At USF, I also studied music education and orchestral conducting extensively. I am currently a substitute teacher in Hillsborough County, specializing in elementary music, and I am in the process of completing my requirements to teach full time. I am also a composer, and many of my works are posted on IMSLP.org and my personal website.

My lessons are structured mostly around what the student wants. For example, we
may go over some orchestra music the student is learning at school, or we might go over some music theory homework, or perhaps a combination of the two (I frequently incorporate music theory into violin and viola lessons anyway). Or, maybe the student wants to learn a popular piece ("Let It Go" and other Disney songs are favorites of many students).

I may also assign different etudes (pieces designed to focus on a specific technique), scales, and repertoire for the student to study and improve on. The repertoire I chose will be challenging to the student and will server as a tool to help the student improve on one or more aspects of their playing. For younger students, we start off very slow in order to avoid injury and to make sure we get the basics down 100% before moving on into reading and playing music.

It is important to remember that every student is different, and every lesson I teach is tailored to each student; for this reason, I never teach the same lesson twice!

As a teacher, I am stern, but I also have a good sense of humor. I love to have fun. I feel that I connect very well with my students, because I am personable and understanding, but also direct and strict. My philosophy about teaching music is that music is a gift that is meant to be enjoyed. Practicing music should not be like homework! Every time the student picks up his or her instrument, he or she should feel excited about making music. I have taught all kinds of students, ranging from five year olds who are playing music for the first time, to high school seniors preparing for a college audition, to adults in their late fifties who want to pick up a violin or viola as a hobby. My goal is to make the student the best musician he or she can be, while making sure he or she maintains an appreciation for music in general.

Music to me is, in a way, therapeutic at times. It simply feels good to play music! I invite you to take the steps to experiencing the same joy I get from playing music every day. When you do decide to begin, I would be honored to guide you along the way.

Students can expect a relaxed, fun, and encouraging atmosphere for learning. The violin can be an intimidating instrument- you will make a lot of unpleasant sounds before you start sounding great- and that's okay! I'll be there to guide you and help you reach your goals.

If you're already an experience player, you can expect me "workshopping" your technique. We will analyze your form, practice patterns, and playing style, to ensure that you are growing and improving from the moment we begin. I will push you to become the most expressive player that you can become, but at a pace that feels comfortable for you.

What young students can expect:

- Preparing for entry into school orchestra
- Polishing up school orchestra repertoire
- Learning new material and scales
- Perfecting their technique
- Preparing for NYSSMA
- Preparing college audition tapes (I do have the ability to record these as well)
- Learning to play with confidence
- Learning vibrato

About Dayna
Hello!,

My classical training began at age 10, when I started to play the viola. From there, I was able to translate my musical skills to violin, guitar, piano, voice, composition, and songwriting.

Originally a biology major at SUNY Purchase College, I quickly became restless knowing that I was unable to focus on music enough. So, I switched it up, followed my passion, and began studying music theory and production. Since then, my life has been focused on teaching, performing, writing, and recording music- and I wouldn't have it any other way!
It's been quite a journey, and I can't wait to share all that I've learned along the way with you.

Whether you are just starting out, or are looking to further the knowledge you already have, I will meet you at where you are, and help you to achieve your personal goals.

Together we can work o
n technique, theory, improvisation, ear-training, songwriting, and more!

Hello!

I have over 10 years of musical experience playing violin, and other instruments. I also have over 3 years of experience working with children ages 4-12. I have the ability to work with all ages.

My interest is in the student. I am interested in tailoring lessons to the goals and desires of each student. I specialize in students starting out and getting their feet wet in the music world. I believe in setting goals and achieving them in the way that works best for my students.

About Chelsea
Welcome everyone!

I have a few beliefs:

I believe that everyone should know how to play an instrument. Whether it is violin, ukulele, piano, their voice, whatever! Music is a part of what makes us human, and is important for personal development.

I believe that no one is "too old" to start up an instrument. Age is only a number and it is never too late to start up something that may become a passion.

I believe that learning an instrument is a journey. Any journey has its ups and downs, but in the end, you are glad you took that first step.

I have been playing violin for over 10 years, and along the way have picked up some ukulele, voice, bass guitar, acoustic guitar, and piano. I am a teacher, and I have the knowledge and know-how to pass along to any student. However, I also consider myself a student in that I am always
looking to learn how to improve myself.

Any student of mine will have 100% of my interest in their growth and development as a musician. I can work with a wide variance of ages, having experience in ages 4-12 year old children.

I look forward to meeting with you soon!

Chelsea is a wonderful teacher. Playing a plastic recorder for a week in fourth grade music class is the extent of my musical experience and that was a LONG time ago. Chelsea is great at finding the right place for me to start learning and then laying out for me exactly what I need to work on in order to progress to the next stage of my learning process. I had been considering teaching myself how to play the violin via youtube videos but learned more in the span of one hour-long session with Chelsea than I could have learned in a week going that route. Chelsea was able to address the importance of things like posture and breathing to achieve the best possible sound, without that real time one-on-one instruction this would have been a nuance that I would not have ever picked up on. She is punctual, friendly, polite and patient. I highly recommend hiring her to teach you or your kids an instrument.

Experienced teacher since 1981,with great impact in students' careers. Specializing in the beginner/intermediate/advanced violin student! All ages welcome. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. Not only will you be playing songs, but you will be building a strong foundation of note reading, music theory, ear training, sight reading, technique, and more. More than excited to share my knowledge with you. Let's get started!

About Gjergji
I am a professional violinist since 1981. I graduated from University of Tirana, Albania with a Bachelors in Violin. Since then I haven't stopped teaching violin both privately and through schools. I have a great experience in classical violin. I have performed with orchestras and being the first violinist for the Opera Albania, theaters and ballet performances. In 1998, I moved to Athens, Greece, where I continued to perform for different orchestras throughout the country. In the meantime, my passion for teaching kept me going even with speaking little Greek at that time. I lived there for 15 years and with other artists we created a band called 'Adriatika" playing traditional Balkan songs.

Throughout my years of teaching the violin, many of my students have pursued great careers either by getting scholarships into the best music scho
ols such as Italy, France, England, Germany, Switzerland, New York, Michigan, or by acquiring a position in an orchestra or creating their own band.

Recently, I moved to Tampa and I am so excited to meet you, share my knowledge, experience, and make violin lessons a fun and happy time of your day but also be serious and accomplish our goals.

Definitely, all ages and all levels are welcomed. Lessons are going to be adjusted to anyone's particular level and knowledge. Feel free to contact me at any time for any questions. Schedule is flexible. Let's get started!
