I've been teaching Music Theory for over 6 yrs.
the basics are expanded into easy to understand steps to help any walk of student grasp the ideas behind Music Theory.
It is best to cater to the student and to introduce in sequence ideas that will help bring a greater understanding of theory.

About Rene
Knowing at the age of 5 that music was my life, by being brought up surrounded by praise music and gospel, my early exposure to music helped me to find every Instrument and style just my thing! I wanted to play everything and learn all aspects of music. I started with singing in the children's choir and then developed into piano and music theory. At the age of 12 I began to learn classical guitar, and at 15 took on various styles like Flamenco, Jazz and Rock. I graduated from High School having played in the school band achieving recognition In national Institutions Like IAJE (International Association for Jazz Education) and state band finals. I was also composing from a very early age, and at 18 released my first album (self-titled) which can still be heard and purchased today through various music outlets, since i have released over 15
albums with various ensembles and bands. In college I already knew from my previous experience that I wanted to teach and pass on the joy that music brought to my life. I studied Music Theory and Jazz and finished my degree in Music Education. I have been teaching all in all for about 14 yrs. And I have enjoyed every minute I have spent with my students learning as much from them, as them from me. I am looking forward to meeting new and eager students who really want to bring their inner music out to share with the rest of us music aficionados! and develop their skills to the peak of their abilities.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching method ranges depending on the student. I believe in my experience that everyone learns differently, therefore everyone develops at their own pace. I try to find key strengths in each student and expose this to their advantage, using their abilities to further develop their skills, this method has shown the most promising results and students usually find themselves playing and performing just a couple of months after their first lessons. Part of my method involves a lot of performance and recital opportunities to help break any fears and inhibitions a student may bring with them. Music is about sharing, so an early exposure to this method helps to strengthen and stabilize a core acceptance of a students style and path, giving them and those close to them a very clear picture of their development and achievements.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Has all instruments at both his home and college studio

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide lesson material, song charts and a progression scale. I require student to have an Instrument and recommended technique literature.

*** Specialties ***
My classical training began in High School with Influences in Segovia, and Romero I studied classical for 4 yrs. and trained in Jazz and Improvisation with performances In Big Band and group ensemble. Also sang and played in the school gospel choir.

****Personal Statement*****

If you needed a reason

There is no question that music touches us instantly and activates images, emotions and memories that linger with us throughout our lives. As a casual listener or an obsessive music elitist, there are times in our lives when we get blown away by a sound so unique our entire body vibrates and resonates with the touch of something out of this world. I can honestly say when this happens to me I feel as close to a spiritual connection than anything I have experienced otherwise. I believe it is these exact events that have triggered my need to be completely involved in the making, performing and consuming of music. The creative process, to me, is the single obvious reason we exist in this world. We create and share, learn and interpret, build on previous ideas and inspire others to perfect upon this process. It is no doubt a very humbling experience to realize you are part of it all. During this process you come to realize how important you are as an Individual, how there is no other vessel like you in this world, nor has there ever been or ever will. You are here now and your voice, your talent, your gift is an instrument to the great choir of the human spirit. No one but you can relate this, a reason to be, to create, to give.

In my opinion, Allen is a great piano teacher for beginners and intermediate students. Having played in churches for more than 40 years, I yearn for a more challenging piano pedagogy, i.e. Hanon # 31- 60 and Jazz theory. Nonetheless, I strongly recommend Allen IF you have children or adults who are just learning the instrument. They will benefit from his congenial personality and laid back approach.

Allen was both knowledgeable and thorough, which I would expect from a teacher with a college degree in Music. Instead of taking up golf or tennis, I look forward to studying both piano and music theory with him. In fact, I requested that he would at least consider giving 45 minute lessons...smile.

Allen was prompt on arrival, patient, and very professional. He understood my concerns and seemed genuinely interested in helping my child to reach the next goal. He was very knowledgeable with his piano skills and appeared to be dedicated to the profession. I'm just thrilled and I would highly recommend him!

We will hit on the basics of note identification to sight reading leaving you with enough proficiency to perform at a venue of your choosing.

About Nicole
My name is Nicole but you can call me Nikki! Here's a little about me and what I've accomplished.

My Background:
I have been singing since the age of four! I am a native of Miami Beach Florida. I started performing in church and school where my passion for performing were developed. Having come from such a background I was privileged with a well rounded musical tastes, from Gospel in church Classical in school, and Reggae, Pop, Rock, and R&B from her parents. In performing in contests and local shows I learned a lot about stage presence and can share that with my students as well. I earned my bachelor's in Studio Music and Jazz Voice at the University of Miami and Minored in Music Business. At UM I had the opportunity to study with critically acclaimed Jazz musicians and artists such as Kevin Mahogany, Kurt Elling and John Secada. S
ince earning my degree I've worked with the Florida Grand Opera in their production of Aida, also sang background vocals for Gloria Estefan and Michael Buble. I currently perform around South Florida at various hot spots with my self titled band! So those who teach can do too!

My main objective as a performer is to effectively and skillfully entertain a variety of audiences to the best of my ability using the knowledge that I have attained from my experiences as a student and as an entertainer, and in turn work for an established business in the music industry and become a successful artist.

My objective as an educator is to not only teach my students about music but allowing them to grow and flourish as performers and as musicians, with proper technique the skies the limit!

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching style is pretty laid back and fun, it will take work and dedication on the part of my students to work on the new skills and techniques they will be learning under my direction. In the first 2 months we will focus on technique, meaning breathing exercises, vowel placements, warm ups, and execution of a song of the students choice, by the third month these exercises would have improved your vocals ability tremendously we can then work on stylizing for the particular genre your interested in singing in. Each student will have a personally tailored lesson plan to better help them in their goals to be a better singer and performer. I do prefer students in the age ranges 12 and up, only because the voice hasn't fully developed yet to do extensive vocalizing but with younger students we can focus on breathing, warming up properly and theory, which is so important at a young age and will better assist you especially when it comes to developing your ears. If you're wanting to learn to sing in different styles without losing your voice or hurting yourself I'm the teacher for you!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Keyboard in living Room: couches and chairs, parents can sit in on lesson

*** Travel Equipment ***
Keyboard should be provided by student, I will provide mic and amp

*** Specialties ***
Pop, Rock, R&B, Jazz Styles are my specialties.

Nicole Kidd is the Best Vocal Coach for anyone at any level pursuing a singer career.
It is a true privilege taking lessons with Nikki. She is an amazing vocalist who has a unique voice. Also, she is a very sweet and positive person that has been capable to bring the best out of my kids Giulianna and Nickolas who love taking classes with her.
Over the past three years she has increased their vocal quality as well as their confidence on stage.

I highly recommend Nicole Kidd as a vocal coach.

- terminology
- melodic and harmonic intervals
- reading and notating rhythm
- chord construction

About Lucian
Lucian W is an alumnus of Berklee College of Music in Boston and former faculty member of the Hartford Conservatory. His vocal studies have been with Jacqueline Jarrett and David Baker in Connecticut, Jane Ellison at Loyola University in Montreal, noted operatic tenor Carmine Gagliardi in New York City, and Gina Moretta (whose students have included Gloria Estefan and Jon Secada) in Miami. He studied privately with world famous jazz guitarists George Benson and Chuck Wayne and has had a full time performing career of several decades as a guitarist, pianist, vocalist, bassist, arranger and orchestra leader.
Lucian believes that by sharing his enjoyment of making music with his students, he can give them confidence in other areas. That is because, in order to make music, they must go through a process of physical discovery through pr
actice. They are then empowered by experiencing the connections between inspiration, work, and pleasure.
He performs, as a solo entertainer, an unusually wide ranging repertoire because of his versatility on guitar, piano, and vocals. Being an accomplished arranger with a vast library of charts also allows him to lead a ten piece orchestra as competently as a trio or quartet. He has performed extensively in New York, Chicago, Cape Cod, and Florida.

*** Lesson Details ***
I always try to make lessons as comfortable and enjoyable as possible yet challenging enough to maintain interest. I build lessons around the student's individual interests (specific songs or styles) so that he or she can learn the technical fundamentals in a relevant context.
My own curriculum is supplemented by the following:
Guitar: Hal Leonard Guitar Method, Aaron Shearer Classical Guitar Method
Piano: Alfred's Basic Piano Course , John W. Schaum Piano Course
Voice: Jeffrey Allen's Secrets of Singing, Nicola Vaccai Practical Method

*** Studio Equipment ***
Hardman baby grand acoustic piano
OptimusMD1600 electronic keyboard
Crate TX50D guitar amplifer

*** Specialties ***
- Singing lesson time is generally divided 50/50 between voice building and repertoire. I accompany vocalists on both piano and guitar, teaching the melody notes as they are sung along with the piano. Then, once the melody is learned, I often switch to the guitar with just chordal backing. The acoustic guitar is also softer than the piano and lets the singer hear their own voice better. For voice building, I use my own concepts plus approaches of famous voice teachers like Jeffrey Allen, Seth Riggs, and Anthony Frissel.
- I am very experienced performing all styles of guitar and can cater to the student's specific area of interest, whether it be rock, folk, classical, or jazz.
- With piano, I work on fundamentals of reading and technique. Learning basic harmony and chord construction starting with triads (3 note chords), the student can soon read single stave lead sheets (a form of music notation widely utilized by professional musicians) as well as the grand staff. This approach trains the ear and makes learning how to play popular songs much easier.

He has the patience, and demeanor that is perfect for teaching. No easy task. I've seen other students of all ages here as well.

I'm a Theory Composition Graduate. I can help anyone learn and develop all concepts related to this subject.

About Axel
I found out early on (age of 13) that I had a facility to teach and help friends understand music concepts. Some said it's a gift, others said it's vocation. To me it was just sharing what I loved. Since I had already decided to make music my career I made it a point to learn more and all I could in this field. Three degrees later (B.M /Berklee College of Music, B.M and M.M. /University of Miami) having studied under amazing Masters and years of performing, touring, producing and recording I have a lot to offer anyone, any age, any level when they choose me as their music teacher.

*** Lesson Details ***
My students would describe our lessons as fun and enjoyable. That's because I want everyone to learn the basics of music in a relaxed and comfortable environment. I'm easy going and encouraging in character and make it a point to expla
in in the simplest manner the many concepts of music. I help students develop good habits of practice so they can improve their skills by giving them personal tips. Each student is unique and learns at a particular pace. I'm in tune with the student and move accordingly helping him/her navigate thru the music lesson while providing assistance towards reaching their specific goals.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano /keyboards/ protools in my studio with living room seating for parents. Coffee/water always complementary. Protools recording studio available for my student singers at discounted rates. Affordable and competitive rates for amateur-professional singers looking to record/produce a demo.

*** Travel Equipment ***

Axel is a phenomenal teacher! I loved my lessons with him and am sad to leave - I am moving across the country, otherwise I would definitely continue! I took piano as a child but stopped for about 10 years and was looking for some help getting back into piano and ensuring I understand basic music theory (cords, scales, etc.). My lessons with Axel were exactly what I was looking for - AND MORE! He gave me the tools to be able to analyze and learn songs on my own, including work with dynamics. He is SO nice and never makes you feel uncomfortable. Highly recommended.

About Anna-Lisa
I am passionate about music and singing. I have sung professionally on stages all over the world for 30 years, singing 70 roles in 10 different languages. I was the Principal Mezzo Soprano at the Finnish National Opera, a European A-house in Helsinki, Finland, (over 500 employees) for 25 years. My American Debut was at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in Los Angeles. My other great passion is teaching voice. It is wonderful to experience the joy that a student feels after finding his/her voice and starting to improve his/her performance.
By now I've worked as a voice teacher for 15 years, well familiar with both European and American voices.
I have a Master's degree in Music, including performance and teaching. I have had additional education in Complete Vocal Technique, which familiarizes me with Pop-, rock,- jazz-, and country singing
techniques.My students include both beginners and professionals. I can teach you both to sing like an opera diva, and to belt and sound like a pop diva. For me, the basics are important. I want you to learn proper breathing, support, relaxation and interpretation. With a good foundation, you have a technique that lasts a lifetime.

I am very serious about what I do, and I expect my students to be equally serious in their work. With all this said, expect to learn a lot with me, but also expect to have lots of fun doing it.

You will have better singing for a better life!

I will expect students to purchase a music theory book depending on their music theory level. I will expect students to study and practice on their own time and we will closely follow a lesson plan.

Sight reading, rhythm, and ear training will be included in the lesson.

About Joel
Hablo Español!! Para la biografía en español por favor desplazar hacia abajo.

I am a composer and musician currently working towards a Bachelor's in Music Composition. I've been playing the drum kit and piano / performing since i was twelve years old. I was under the instruction of the pianist & composer: Marc Douyon. I've won multiple composition contests.

Music is a language, a science, a type of math, and an art. No matter what angle you look at it from, it's beautiful. I want to show others the joy that expressing yourself through music can bring you.

And remember, don't stop practicing!

***Lesson Details***

Everyone learns at their own pace and I will adjust my lessons according to the skill level of my students. I can provide the necessary material for the lessons but will recommend books that will enhance your play
ing. I would prefer to teach lessons at my church that I attend and play at called Iglesia Buenas Nuevas in East Hialeah. But I am also willing meet up with you anywhere within a 25 miles radius of my home address.

Having your own instrument is NECESSARY so students can practice on their own time. At the church I can provide the instruments for the lessons: I have a full four piece drum kit, and a mini grand piano. The church is available to me at all times.

ALL lessons will include sight reading, rhythm, and ear training.

***ESPAÑOL***

Soy un compositor y músico que trabaja actualmente hacia una Bachiller en Composición de Música. He estado tocando la batería y el piano desde que tenía doce años. Yo estaba bajo la instrucción del pianista y compositor: Marc Douyon. He ganado varios concursos de composición.

La música es un lenguaje, una ciencia, un tipo de matemáticas y un arte. No importa de qué ángulo lo mires, es hermoso. Quiero mostrar a otros la alegría de que expresarse a través de la música puede traer.

Y recuerde, no deje de practicar!

*** Detalles de la lección ***

Todo el mundo aprende a su propio ritmo y voy a ajustar mis lecciones de acuerdo al nivel de habilidad de mis estudiantes. Puedo proporcionar el material necesario para las lecciones pero recomendaré libros que ayudaran. Preferiría enseñar lecciones en mi iglesia que es llamada Iglesia Buenas Nuevas en el Este de Hialeah. Pero también estoy dispuesto a reunirse con usted en cualquier lugar dentro de un radio de 25 millas de mi casa.

Tener su propio instrumento es NECESARIO para que los estudiantes puedan practicar en su propio tiempo. En la iglesia tengo los instrumentos para las lecciones: Hay un kit de batería completo de cuatro piezas, y un mini piano de cola. La iglesia está disponible para mí en todo momento.

TODAS LAS lecciones incluirán la lecturas visuales, lecciones de ritmo y el entrenamiento del oído.

About Kevin
School is important, but MUSIC is importanter. Learning to practice and love it is one of the most useful skills anybody can ask for in any field. I wholeheartedly believe that anyone that puts in honest practice and exploration will find a way around an instrument. For the last 20 years I have been teaching privately, in the public, private and charter schools, and have been writing and playing professionally. Some of my best students have pursued music as a career and some are engineers or housewives or something else, but playing music is something they all hold close to their hearts.

I had the pleasure of being Mr. Muncy's student during my high school years. I started as a beginner in my sophomore year having never taken a music lesson. I took this course simply to fulfill an arts requirement, but his infectious passion for music and teaching inspired in me a deeper interest in the subject. His patience, unique teaching style, and ability to communicate complicated musical concepts equipped me with the capability to pursue music more seriously. After graduating from his music program, I joined the symphony band at my university, held various steady professional gigs and formed my own groups for performing at charity events. Three years of lessons with Mr. Muncy, and some dedication on my end, allowed me to surpass my own expectations in music. I continue to play while pursuing a career as a Physician Assistant and feel privileged to have Mr. Muncy as a mentor. His lessons not only allowed me to pursue my passion for music, but have taught me life skills that have also molded me as a clinician. If you are looking to take music lessons, I highly recommend Mr. Kevin Muncy.

Kevin was an excellent teacher when I had him many moons ago - I can only imagine that he has improved since then. I was a beginner, learning the bass. That isn't Kevin's primary instrument, but he was knowledgeable enough to help me lay much of the foundation for the all that I know in bass playing today. He helped inform my music history knowledge, appreciation and pointed me to some great artists, books (esp. Free Play), and people to learn from. Perhaps more importantly, he really helped stimulate my growth and development within music and within life itself. I credit a good part of who I am and my success today to the tutelage and teaching of Kevin.
