I had my first lesson with Stacey and it was a blast! She is so patient, helpful and friendly. She works with your schedule and gives great advise on what to do in between classes so that you can practice and prepare for the next lesson. I would highly recommend her.

About Malda
At age of 6, I began extensive professional piano training and have been performing around same age too. Since 1993 I hold Bachelors Degree in Music with Major in Piano Performance and Pedagogy.

I've been teaching piano to all ages and levels for over 20 years. I love teaching and I'm very patient and kind.

I believe in the power of music to reach deep into the human personality.
I would like to inspire and educate my students in general music knowledge and introduce them to the
beautiful atmosphere the piano instrument creates.
I have participated in numerous competitions and recitals with my students, where many of my students have won awards.

I'm a highly experienced Piano Teacher and active performing Concert Pianist.

I'm also available to accompany students for recitals, concerts, etc.

*** Lesson Details ***
It is
my passion to teach music, investing in the lives of students and using music to cultivate their growth.

It is so important that all my students get out of the lessons what they want and be happy. For ex. I choose some piano pieces and I play for the student, and the student can choose the one that likes more, or if a student has a particular piece that really wants to learn then I explain that and find creative ways to allow that student to meet their goal.
This technique would work for the student, pushes them to practice more and enjoy that. With experience in classical and contemporary music, my teaching philosophy is to build strong technique, to develop musicality, to improve sight-reading skills, and to give to my students good knowledge of theory.

I will train for competitions, recitals or just for fun.

I enjoy teaching all levels (beginners - very advanced) and abilities.

I'm very friendly, patient and believe that anyone can learn to play piano and love their lessons.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Studio Room: Piano, parents can sit in the waiting room

*** Travel Equipment ***
Piano or keyboard

*** Specialties ***
I teach piano (performance and pedagogy), music theory using any method that is suitable for my student,like, Alfred, Nancy and Randall Faber, Bastien, etc.

About Dennis
I have studied Music Education and Music Performance at Millersville University and Child Psychology at Southern New Hampshire University. I am certified to teach Music Education in Florida. This experience offers to me many tools as a music educator which I then bring to my lessons.Teaching as a classroom, group, and private music instructor has been my life for the last 25 years. I have taught students ranging from 4-80 years old. I play and teach guitar, banjo, mandolin, voice, bass guitar, piano, and my experience as both a published and recording artist serves as a valuable reference when teaching students how to express and write their own music.

I've been working with Dennis for about 5 years, and who knows, I may be learning from him 5 years from now. It's great learning from him. Not only does he know his stuff and makes his teaching personal to your needs, but he also has a way to make you feel successful even when you are struggling. I always feel better about my playing when I leave than when I got to his studio. He recognizes my learning style and what I want to accomplish, then builds his teaching around that. Dennis a masterful teacher. He has the ability to listen and understand where I am in my learning curve and adjust his lessons to my skill level. When I wanted theory, he went there. When I wanted to learn blues riffs he patiently showed me a few scales. I always leave a session having learned something new.

If you are looking for a guitar teacher (and yes, he also teaches keyboards and other instruments) I'd say put your time and money into Dennis and you, like I, will feel it is one of your best investments
