About David
My desire to teach resonates from my past experiences. I want to guide my students, and guide them through their musical development. I want to share my story and push my students to do better and aim for excellence. More than anything, I want my students to know that they can overcome any obstacle in their way and realize their musical dreams. Whether it be big, or small.

About Natalie
Born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago, at the age of 9, Natalie knew music was something that was just a part of who she was. Writing songs on the piano before lessons could be scheduled, Natalie found herself immersed in a medium that would bring her joy for the rest of her life.

By age 14 Natalie had won several trophies competing in Classical piano with the Illinois Music Association.

As an adult, she would go on to fill her life with the world of music as a singer, songwriter, performer and recording artist.

Graduating from Elmhurst College (1997) with a Bachelor's in Music, Natalie received high accolades earning a membership in the Lambda Sigma Psi Music Honor Society.

During her college years, Natalie created and owned a local music publication called, "The Local Buzz". At this moment she had discovered her
desire to teach. "I just wanted everyone I knew in music to know and use what I was learning, or had learned from the music classes, professionals I had been meeting and working with, and my overall music life experiences". By 1997, Natalie was signed to an independent label and embarked on a new adventure.

"Music is an adventure, but without the foundation and passion I had as a child, I would have never landed where I did. I truly LOVE to teach and share what I know about piano, and the world of music. Music is what I know, and know best. Helping to create a solid foundation and build confidence in someone embarking on a journey in music is the most rewarding profession I have ever had the honor of participating in."

*** Lesson Details ***
Natalie enjoys teaching students of any age, but specializes in piano, voice and beginning guitar, tailoring lessons to each individual's goals and reasons for learning whether it be for personal pleasure or professional performance.

Keeping things lighthearted and fun, Natalie breathes confidence into each student using her sense of humor, and down-to-earth personality.

Feeding off 40 years of personal and professional experiences, Natalie patiently listens to the student's desires, needs and notates their learning patterns, allowing for growth at their own pace.

Natalie's goal is to Make Music Matter to you and create a foundation that will allow you to continue to find joy in making music for the rest of your life.

***Lesson Prices*** include clear customized lesson plan, all lesson books, workbooks, sheet music, play along time, learning games, in home concert planning, and recitals.

When I signed up for this class, I didn't expect to gain everything that I did. The first lesson I was so nervous and just felt silly trying to sing notes to someone online that I had just met. I signed up for personal pleasure and confidence building, and it took a little bit for me to come out of my shell, but the difference that she has made in my life was way beyond what I signed up for. Everyone could see the difference in me! Previously, I would not get up to do karaoke unless someone dragged me up to do it, and even then I felt like I was going to have a panic attack. Now, I'm picking out songs to try in all kinds of genres, my voice has improved, and the confidence to get up and sing in front of others is soooo much better. Natalie became more than my teacher, she became my friend! She is hilarious, fun, very patient, and empathetic. She will take the time to help you with whatever you want to work on, whether it is music or in my case helping me write a letter to my Dad who had just passed for his memorial. So, If you are looking for someone that can teach you to grow in your craft or help you gain confidence and make it fun, Natalie is the best person for the job!

I had never touched a piano before selecting Ray for my teacher. After just a few lessons he has me playing and improving with each time I practice. Because of his great teaching ability I'm on the right path to playing well. He's very patient and explains everything in terms that are easily understood. I'm not sure I would be progressing so well if it wasn't for his exceptional teaching skills.

About Lucas
Hi, thank you for stopping by my profile! My name is Lucas Brown and I teach the violin!

Who Do I Teach?
Currently, I serve as Adjunct Violin Professor at Seminole State College as well as run a private studio of my own for students in and around the Orlando area and many online students from all over the country. I'm happy to teach students, young and old (it's never too late to start!). I have a wide range of people that I teach, whether it be younger students who need help with school orchestra music, intermediate or advanced students working on challenging technique or repertoire for auditions, or even people who have always wanted to learn for fun but have never had the time.

What Are Lessons Like?
Students can choose from 30-minute, 45-minute, or one-hour lessons. I recommend one lesson per week, though some students pre
fer bi-monthly lessons. I'm happy to work with you and whatever is possible in your schedule!

My lessons generally consist of technique work (we usually start our lesson with whatever scale we've been working on that week), followed by an etude and finally the repertoire, however this may vary depending on the student's goals for our lessons. For me, the most important thing about my lessons is that student is learning while having fun and is never afraid to ask questions.

I usually use a bit of a hybrid teaching method, incorporating Suzuki, Essential Elements, and etude books (usually Wohlfahrt or Kreutzer). If the student has a specific request for a song or piece that they've always wanted to learn, I'm more than happy work that into the lessons!

A Little About Me:
I've been playing violin since I was 11 years old and currently hold two degrees. A Bachelor's degree from Florida State University and a Master's degree from DePaul University in Chicago - both are degrees in Violin Performance. I began violin in the public school system in Tallahassee, FL and eventually began taking lessons privately with an emphasis in the Suzuki Method.

These days I serve as 1st Violinist for the Classern String Quartet, as well as perform with the Space Coast Symphony. Please let me know if you have any questions! I'm happy to help with very serious students wanting to make a career in music as well as those who have always been interested in learning the violin for fun. I'm here to help you!

**Students must provide their own violin**
