About Jim
I have been teaching for the past 15 years as a private instructor. My students range in age from 5 years old to 64. I teach beginner and intermediate piano and beginner, intermediate, and advanced electric bass.
I've been playing professionally for the past 30 years as an electric bassist, pianist, and vocalist. Learn to play like your favorite artists while having fun and growing as a musician. For bass students, you can learn all styles that are desirable, such as funk techniques like slapping, R&B grooving, rock & roll driving, and jazz swinging. For piano students, you can expect to learn enough music theory to reach greater heights and move forward while developing a love for the piano and the world of music. I offer a teaching environment that is highly interactive and encourages students to play, and understand the dynamics of p
laying with other musicians. You will learn to read music but I promise you will not be bored.

We have had a few in-home lessons with Jim for our 9yo girl and 15yo boy. He's fantastic; he cares deeply about music and their love of it. He has high expectations of their progress, and he is very good with their different skills levels and motivates them accordingly. We highly recommend Jim!

Music is one of the most important parts of my life. I started playing when I was 6, and I've been hooked ever since! I've performed with bands in many different genres. Over the past two years, I've shared the stage with The Wailers, Charles Bradley, The Bellamy Brothers, and countless others. I've also performed with musicians such as Chuchito Valdes and Jennifer Holiday. Currently, I'm a touring musician based here in Tampa. I perform with a 10-piece soul band, a Nashville-based country outfit, and my own jazz trio. I love teaching and sharing my stage experience!

My son had a great time on his first piano lessons with Zachary. He tells me he can not wait till his next lessons and even commented how happy he was with his instructor, Zachary. My husband and I also commented that we could not have chosen a better instructor. Zachary has been punctual, polite, and most of all has patience with my son who is only seven years old.

About Breeze
Hi! My Name is Breeze Kennedy. I graduated Florida Southern College with a Bachelors of Music, specifically voice. I am passionate about singing and piano playing. Voice students can expect to improve week to week in their vocal technique. Every voice has a unique timbre; I teach students to sing with dynamics and beautiful phrasing that will capture the listener, no matter what the genre. I can help any student to sing with freedom, confidence, and expression.

I teach based on your needs and desires as a singer. Whether you are preparing for a degree in music, to be a better more excellent singer in your community, or just learning to sing as a hobby, I am here for you. I enjoy teaching all styles of singing but my passion is classical, sacred, and Broadway styles. I also am well trained in caring for your voice and keeping it healthy
. I look forward to meeting you and helping you become the best singer that you can be!

Mr. Breeze Kennedy is a very talented instructor that helped me to unlearn bad habits I acquired from previous voice instructors. In addition to helping me improve my singing quality and vocal range, he helped me realize more of my vocal potential. As a student of his in both private vocal lessons and choral group settings, I have observed him help many students with varying levels of music experience improve their singing and musicality significantly. Whether you have acquired advanced or very little experience, Mr. Breeze Kennedy will be able to help you achieve your vocal goals.

I now have my degree in voice and am teaching music. I will always be thankful for the time he took to teach me!
