Uncle can you teach me. I like playing all types of instruments and I am also taking up music. My grandmother got me into music also and I play guitar, harmonica, accordion, drum and flute. As you can see I like music also and I do Karaoke with my mom who is your sis. We love you and one day God will join us together. I am proud you got your own place and one day I can take care of you. I am also thinking why I don't have any uncle from my mom side who I can be with. Love your Nephew Mario Barrios.

Chris Performance

I have been taking saxophone lessons with Chris for the past month and the experience has been invaluable. Their professionalism as well as dedication are two very important elements in the dynamics that has been developed. In the first class I could barely play a scale, and for the third week I could play 5 of them without any problem. We are now focusing on developing the style of swing that is something I have always wanted to learn. I know that with his guidance I'll get to where I want to be in relation to my musicianship.

Chirs Thanks for your interest and dedication.

Manny

PS: He has being able also to give me feedback by email or over the phone; something that is highly important for practicing the wright way.

About Alicia
Alicia has been playing the violin since she can remember thanks to her very talented musical family. Because of their efforts she received her first exposure to loving and teaching music at an early age through attending and later assisting her mother's Suzuki string program. They also afforded her the opportunity to learn with some of the finest violin teachers Miami has to offer.
A proud alumni of Miami's public arts programs, including those of Southwood Middle School, Coral Reef Senior High and the Greater Miami Youth Symphony, Alicia encourages all of her school-age students to explore their options of participating in the various youth arts organizations in the community.
In addition to her 15+ years training in violin technique and classical repertoire, she also has had almost 10 years of classical piano instructi
on and has had the privilege to perform classical, jazz, blues, latin and pop music from coast to coast and in Europe.

*** Lesson Details ***
I have found that students thrive in a curriculum that's to their pace, fun and conducive to creative thought. So I'm a fairly easygoing teacher. I wont chew you out, won't force you to practice scales on your head while you hold your breath. But I will level with you: Music takes commitment. The good news? It's really fun.
So, let me show you the joy and reward of learning music!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living Room transferred to music room: piano, computer, music stand and library, parents can sit in on lesson

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect student to have instrument, music stand, any appropriate books, and tuner (or home access to computer/internet)

*** Specialties ***
A Suzuki method influenced program that introduces classical music and theory step-by-step while incorporating fun games and your favorite songs.
Will also drill you on music theory and help you nail your first audition and performance.

About Josue
Hi, there! My name is Josue and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2004 and have loved helping my students accomplish self-expression, accomplish performance goals, and breaking through previous limitations. I went to Indiana University Jacob's School of Music and earned a Master's degree in Music in 2012. I'm a people's person and a caring person and my teaching style is patient, selfless, and informative. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

How will our lessons work? I customize them completely around what you want to get from them. Some students are focusing on the Classical genre meanwhile others want to learn how to improvise and play commercial music. Whatever artistic direction you want to focus on I can guide you.

Studying together you will benefit by developing a warm, deep and
robust sound through exercises such as long tones, tongueless starts, overtones and mouthpiece exercises. We will also focus on instrumental technique by utilizing technical material found in etudes, arpeggios, patterns, scales, solos and many other sources. Reading music is key to performing on the saxophone so we will address sight reading and answer any questions you may have toward rhythm, time signature, rests and note duration. Articulation and time-feel is of the utmost importance when expressing yourself through the saxophone and we will grow from listening to and analyzing the phrasing of world class musicians. You will familiarize yourself with time feel through utilizing the metronome while playing and learning how to internalize it.

Through fun work and self-discipline you will feel so proud of yourself that you have learned how to communicate and speak your emotions through your saxophone as if it were your own voice. I can't wait to help you feel that gratification of accomplishment, see you on the other side in the classroom!

If you're passionate about music and love the flute I'll be honored to have you as a student! I am available for eager students of all skill levels and ages, focusing on building a strong foundation of fundamental flute skills, paired with expressive artistry. Each student is unique, therefore they deserve a style and pace of learning that is perfectly tailored for them. This is my promise if we decide to work together.

About Kevin
School is important, but MUSIC is importanter. Learning to practice and love it is one of the most useful skills anybody can ask for in any field. I wholeheartedly believe that anyone that puts in honest practice and exploration will find a way around an instrument. For the last 20 years I have been teaching privately, in the public, private and charter schools, and have been writing and playing professionally. Some of my best students have pursued music as a career and some are engineers or housewives or something else, but playing music is something they all hold close to their hearts.

I had the pleasure of being Mr. Muncy's student during my high school years. I started as a beginner in my sophomore year having never taken a music lesson. I took this course simply to fulfill an arts requirement, but his infectious passion for music and teaching inspired in me a deeper interest in the subject. His patience, unique teaching style, and ability to communicate complicated musical concepts equipped me with the capability to pursue music more seriously. After graduating from his music program, I joined the symphony band at my university, held various steady professional gigs and formed my own groups for performing at charity events. Three years of lessons with Mr. Muncy, and some dedication on my end, allowed me to surpass my own expectations in music. I continue to play while pursuing a career as a Physician Assistant and feel privileged to have Mr. Muncy as a mentor. His lessons not only allowed me to pursue my passion for music, but have taught me life skills that have also molded me as a clinician. If you are looking to take music lessons, I highly recommend Mr. Kevin Muncy.

Kevin was an excellent teacher when I had him many moons ago - I can only imagine that he has improved since then. I was a beginner, learning the bass. That isn't Kevin's primary instrument, but he was knowledgeable enough to help me lay much of the foundation for the all that I know in bass playing today. He helped inform my music history knowledge, appreciation and pointed me to some great artists, books (esp. Free Play), and people to learn from. Perhaps more importantly, he really helped stimulate my growth and development within music and within life itself. I credit a good part of who I am and my success today to the tutelage and teaching of Kevin.
