I am quite pleased with Joshua's growth thus far! After playing his bass guitar with a start up teacher for 3 years, Joshua was ready for more. He needed someone new to push him to the next level. Not only is Damien perfecting Joshua's skills, but is introducing Joshua to music composition. I absolutely LOVE THAT!!! Thank you Damien because every time we visit, Joshua leaves with something new! FABULOUS INSTRUCTOR!!!

Damien is extremely professional and does an excellent job explaining the fundamentals. As Albert Einstein said, "If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough." Damien has a way of explaining concepts so they are easily understood and retained, even for more complex subjects.

About Pepina
I am a laid back teacher and I try to be flexible in every aspect of my teaching. I try to make fun every lesson for a student. I give the students to play some familiar easy songs in order to improve their playing skills.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching methods are the Suzuki and the classical teaching method. The Suzuki method is based on learning the music by imitation of the teacher and later learning the music alphabet while the classical methods (such as the Essential Elements for Strings-M. Allen) emphasize parallel work on learning the notes and playing songs. I expect that after three months my students learn a basic technique of playing their instruments, to be able to read the notes, and play at descent level (which would correspond to the level of the Suzuki book 1 or the Essential Elements for Strings book 1-M. Allen
).

*** Studio Equipment ***
piano in the Florida music studio, I have a piano at home,

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will give information to my students regarding the instrument and other important equipment.

*** Specialties ***
I teach Suzuki and classical method (Essential Elements for strings by M. Allen).
Through the Suzuki method young children master basic musical skills, improve listening ability, and acquire physical comfort with their instrument and with performing. Intermediate and advanced students learn to read music, improve technical proficiency, and play skill specific repertoire.
Essential Elements for strings is designed to guide students gradually through the development of pedagogical and musical techniques necessary to become a proficient, well-rounded musician through a carefully planned succession of pieces.

About jeff
Many years of professional playing, across the country as well as abroad, combined with my knack for breaking down and explaining guitar technique, enables me to offer an effective, as well as fun method of learning the instrument.
Lessons are tailored to each student, with the priority being learning music YOU like, to keep you interested and ready to advance. You can learn to read music, but it's not mandatory (I encourage it, but you can still become a great player without it). If you just want to learn your favorite songs, or get started learning what it takes to shred on the guitar, we can do that.

I'm also experienced with studio and composition work (I composed and produced a bunch of instrumental rock and techno tracks for "Digital Juice", a big time company in Ocala, and was half of a production team that scored a 30 minute
video for SeaDoo sport boats, through "Florida Film and Tape").

Jeff has been one of my biggest influences in my quest for guitar mastery. He has vast knowledge on all types of guitar techniques and is extremely effective at communicating them in a clear and concise way. Also, he can effectively teach music in a fun way that involves playing lead to chord progressions or vice-versa. He has always made guitar lessons fun and engaging, while at the same time challenging to students to make sure they get the most out of the session. I couldn't have asked for a better guitar teacher. Definitely take advantage of this opportunity to learn from him!

About Cara
Making music and Teaching music has always been a huge part of my life! Music has brought such joy to my personal life and the lives of my students and their friends and family. I teach music because it is such a wonderful experience for everyone involved from the practice room to the performance. I hold a Degree in Music Education from Kent State Univ. I have conducted both chorus and orchestra, established small singing groups and founded the Strings of Gold. I promised my own children that music would bring adventures, and they are all performing throughout the world today. Many of my private students experience new friendships at music camps, orchestras, bands, churches, and find a wonderful purpose in school through their participation in music programs. Many of my adult students have enjoyed the accomplishment of playing an instrum
ent and sharing their music with friends and family. I am excited that you are interested in taking music lessons! I look forward to sharing your musical adventure .

Cara is the best music teacher we've ever met. My daughter Amanda (now 6 years old) started learning piano from her 8 months ago. Before that Amanda learned piano for 1 year but didn't have good progress. Now, Not only can Amanda play piano very well, but also she can play violin well for 5 variations of Twinkle Twinkle, after only 9 violin classes from Cara. The most important thing is: Amanda is falling love with the music, which I believe will benefit her whole life. In our opinion, experience, fun, discipline and child-centered are the key to Cara's teaching success. We have met with her husband (a retired band director), and two daughters (both professional violinists), we can feel their love to the music and really admire their music skill.

Our friends thought we were crazy when they knew the fact that we need to drive 60 minutes single trip to take the weekly lesson, but after they see Amanda playing piano and violin, they think it well deserves it.

Cara is the best music teacher for kids in Metro-Orlando area. If you want your kid to fall in love with music, she is your best choice. Go Cara!

Victoria and her husband have such an awesome set up. Although Victoria is technically who does our lessons, they are both really good with my soon to be 9 year old. Stevie has so much fun at her voice lessons and I am excited for what the future holds and the long term work that they can do with my daughter.
We were worried about finding the right fit for stevie and we got super lucky on the first try! We have already used all 5 of our 30 min sessions in less than a week. They are currently helping her get ready for her theater camp audition song and its going very well! Thanks Victoria!

About Emily
"It's not about learning, it's about understanding."

Hi! My name is Emily and I am 23 years old. I am originally from Massachusetts, where I earned my degree in physics at Boston College before moving to central Florida in August 2017. I took off with just what I could fit in my car and drove from Massachusetts to Orlando to try a new life on my own. Tutoring was an accidental passion that definitely saved me. I was messaged around midnight by a worried mother telling me her son received a 0 on his last chemistry exam, and that the teacher gave him a day to take it home to retake for partial credit. At this time I had been applying and applying to jobs with no luck so I jumped on the opportunity and messaged her back right away. The next night I was at their house for hours helping their son understand the material and retake the exam. H
e received the full partial credit on the test. After 1 more session with him the folllowing week, he had another exam. He received a 100%! His mother was in shock and at that moment I realized I had something special. I loved the nights we spent fighting through material just as much as I loved the nights where everything just clicked for him. Since then, I have tutored over 30 students in subjects including (not limited to) middle school math, pre-algebra, algebra 1, algebra 2, geometry, college algebra, pre-calculus, liberal arts math, arithmetic, college calculus 2, biology, AP chemistry, AP physics, college physics, and test prep including SAT, GED, GRE, GKT, and ASVAB. I attribute my success to not focusing on memorization because problems memorized are problems forgotten! Instead, I teach the students how to teach themselves how to start a problem because even complex problems are just series of simple steps disguised by complicated word problems and extraneous information. It's not about learning, it's about understanding. So far I have been blessed with students who will openly tell me "I do not understand" which is an awesome thing to say! It gives me a great place to start: from the beginning. (It's okay if you don't say you don't understand...I will still know ;) ) Often students will just say they do not know how to start a problem, but this hides a deeper dependence on memorization and lack of conceptual understanding. The only way to teach true understanding is to let go of the conventional concept of memorization. Thank you for taking the time to read my bio and I hope to hear from you soon!
Best,
Emily

It led to the challenge of writing good songs. I try to never write a song that's trite or sappy. Lol , I want to like my own stuff. I'm an average guitar player
