Why does music sound the way it does? Why do you feel certain emotions when listening to a certain piece of music? Take some lessons and find out! I teach everything from the most basic of the basic how a scale works, to atonal and experimental music.

About Hallie
Hello there! Do you or your loved ones have an interest in music? So do I! That is why I am here to teach and share my own passion for music. I love working with children and have two boys of my own. I love teaching music and instil passion for learning into every one of my students.

Having grown up in a musical family with my mother a professional violinist, I have been exposed to the joys of music since childhood. I learned how to play Suzuki piano at the age of three, and later percussion and string instruments from when I was six years old. In high school I joined the band playing flute. I loved playing flute and piccolo so much that I decided to take this as my career and went to Interlochen Arts Academy where I excelled in my performance. I later went to Prague Conservatory and Czech Budweiss Conservatory and played with the
Prague Film Orchestra. Even more recently I have been a teacher for the Flutes and Strings classes at Unison World School in Dehradun, India.

I have enjoyed having a very successful studio here in Tampa, and hope to enrich your life with music soon!

*** Lesson Details ***
My approach to teaching varies with the age level of each student. With younger students, imitation is often one of the best methods of learning and I prefer the Suzuki method for students up to age 8, especially with strings. For older children and adults, learning music notation and basic music theory for a full understanding of musical language are more important to get them to the level where they can learn any music that they want to play for fun. For students who wish to excel in their school band, a more practical approach with technique specific warm-ups and exercises seems to be the best in general.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The In-Studio lessons are taught in the living room which includes music stands, sheet music, whiteboard, video recording equipment and microphone, and seating for parents/students. No pets. Parking in driveway. Siblings are welcome.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide metronome, and tools for minor instrument repair. Students should provide their own music stands and sheet music.

*** Specialties ***
Suzuki method, Hrimaly, Taffanel et Gaubert, Patricia George

Music theory lessons go over the basic theory skills to assist in composition and performance. These involve, notation, rhythm, chord structure, chord progression, style and genre, as well as transposition. Theory is necessary, especially with instrumentalists, but I include it in all vocal lessons as well. Over the last ten years, I've taught that theory is the backbone of music, and understanding it not only assists in composition, but in piecing together notes and phrases. With a customized curriculum, goals are reached within a planned time frame.

About Loretta
I have always been fascinated with how music is created and who works behind the scenes of performances and recordings. I started playing the flute in elementary school, piano in junior high school, and singing in high school. Once I got to UMASS, Dartmouth I chose the Music option for my major. I then moved on to NYU. I have been teaching for over ten years now. Working with students both in person and online has been amazing. With online lessons I am able to work with students who love the convenience of being at home and in person I can show students what it is like to really grow! I love my students of all ages, and can only hope to show others how amazing music can be. I have worked with a handful of students with special needs and am comfortable teaching in a non-traditional style. I am currently preparing to complete my certificat
ion in music therapy. Those who can do teach, and those who can teach totally do!

*** Lesson Details ***
You will set the pace for your lesson. I want you to enjoy your time in music, so your lessons will be completely customized. We will develop a goal plan for you so that our time together is interesting, fun, and we make progress! In 3-6 months, you will have a stable technical program and have started a portfolio of music for performances, no matter what level you are. We can share sheet music in person or online (I can even email you great links to amazing performances). Just let me know where you want to be in music, and we'll work together to make it happen. I can't wait to meet you!

*** Studio Equipment ***
First - YOU MUST HAVE YOUR OWN INSTRUMENT FOR PRACTICE AT HOME BEFORE BEGINNING LESSONS!!! Consistency is very important for learning, and weekly lessons ARE NOT enough for growth. My home studio is in a private music room. Parents can relax in our family space with coffee or tea and enjoy their children's learning at their leisure. My studio includes a 88-key keyboard, technology setup with an iMac, microphone and stand, a mirror for posture and musical instruments. I carry books for the lessons themselves (not for practice at home), and we can download or print out music as desired. If you take lessons online, I can email you links and sheet music as needed. Feel free to bring any additional equipment music you would like to share. I have some great recommendations for music books designed for both children and adult learners.

After one month, beginning students can expect to have learned how to play one piece of music of their choosing and one piece of music chosen by me. After a few months of studying with me, they can expect to have gained basic music reading skills.

About Norman
I have recently located to the Tampa, Florida area and I live in Lutz. I have enjoyed teaching and helping students of all ages for 26 years in achieving their goals in learning to play their instruments. Educated at Columbus State University with a Music Education degree, I teach many instruments including piano, guitar, including Classical style, banjo, saxophone and clarinet. If you would like to start on the trumpet or trombone, I can help you as well. I specialize in working with the first time beginner, giving them a solid foundation in instrumental technique and musical knowledge, as well as helping those who have some experience on their instruments and who are looking to advance.

*** Lesson Details ***
My goal for every student is to experience learning their instrument in an environment that is both encouraging and rewar
ding. I exhibit patience with the student knowing what it takes to develop new skills and I work hard in helping each student feel at ease in expressing themselves. I have used many different materials over the years, depending on the individual student's needs and desires to play their music. I do stress learning to read music notation so that you can approach with confidence any piece of music that you would like to play. With the proper dedication, every student can enjoy making music in a short period of time, getting better and better along their musical journey.

*** Specialties ***
I have used many of the published methods for all of the instruments over the years. I am always open to any approach that will work for any given student.

To know how to play the piano is important; however, to know the why of piano playing will increase your knowledge & playing ability.

About Ruthy
I have been playing the piano for over twenty years. I began at the early age of seven years old. Because piano has played such a vital role in my life, I believe it is a responsibility of mine to pass on such a delightful gift of piano playing to those who would like to make it a part of their life too.

I have spent over ten years teaching piano in different areas. This includes a piano lab for a private school, a music studio, and at my home. Throughout the past ten-plus years, I’ve had the privilege to teach over 250 students. I have had over a dozen large recitals with crowds each time of over 150 people.

Not only do I have piano experience, but I also have studied the art of teaching by earning my bachelor of science in elementary education.

My passion is music and being able to teach others to play the piano. I love seeing
the progress of students and the light that comes from learning their favorite piece.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you on your piano playing journey!

Hello! If you would like to learn how to read music, understand chords, understand scales, and understand how to compose music, I can help! I love music theory, and often incorporate it into my lessons on other subjects. Reach out to me with what you want to learn, I can help! I took music theory 1-3 in college, and in high school took music theory 1, 2, and AP. I can teach you how to play by ear, how to transcribe music, how to identify intervals by ear, how to write out music properly, and more.

About Jessica
Hi! My name is Jessica

If you're looking for an enthusiastic teacher who loves her students (and may be a little bit nerdy), look no further! I teach voice, piano, ukulele, and steel drums.

Pasta, my dogs, and the color green are all the greatest things in life.

Music is a personal journey, and is unique for each person. I love to help people discover and grow their own passion. There is nothing more rewarding than being a part of watching someone develop into an artist who then goes on to influence others on their own journey.

Whatever it is you need, whatever you are here for, your passion is what will push you and lead you, and I am just here to help you with whatever direction you choose.

I have a solid background in live performance, professional gigging, music writing, singing, music theory, and of course in your ins
trument of choice. So whatever you'd like to work on I can help.

Can't wait to meet you! :)
