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.

· Piano · In studio
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.

I have a 9-year-old who loves the piano. I've tried a couple other teachers but no one compares to Allen when it comes to teaching my child. 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!

Mrs. Lorna is a great coach. She is patient and really wants you to learn. I have no singing experience so I'm starting from 0 and she's really encouraging. I truly recommend anyone who wants to improve to choose her as her coach, I already see improvements in my singing voice when I wasn't even sure it was possible.

I am a Music Composer, Songwriter, and Producer. I studied with Grammy-nominated Producer Michael Zager and have opened for the Airmen of Note. I like to get an idea of what level the student is at and have them talk about what it is they are interested in getting out of their instrument. I teach music theory and incorporate aspects of songwriting. I like to show how music applies to other areas of living and can gear to your other areas of interests such as professions and other hobbies. I have played sports and maintain an active lifestyle so I can also apply those concepts to learning also.

Piano classes will be geared not only with piano technique, but with music theory as well. Piano is a great instrument to learn because it is the instrument that allows you to be able to transfer to other instruments, if you desire. Piano lessons will be geared towards music reading and technique. Once a basic and proficient music reading is achieved by the student, lessons can begin to infuse music not only from the method books, but from student interest.

About Kadhine
Hi! My name is Kadhine. I started my teaching career in Tampa, FL while I was in college teaching private voice and piano. I received my bachelors degree in Music Education from the University of South Florida in 2011. During my time in Tampa, I was heavily involved in a lot of performances, both inside and outside of school. In addition to studying and teaching privately, I also worked in a community theater in Tampa where I not only performed in shows but was the musical director to their youth theater shows. After graduation, I came back home to Miami to start my public school teaching career. I have been teaching in Miami Dade public schools since 2011 and have taught PK-5 general music, choir (all levels) and guitar (upper elementary and middle school). In 2015, I was fortunate enough to become a Little Kids Rock certified teacher wh
ich has taught me about guitar and rock bands. In 2016, I graduated with a masters degree from Florida International University, also in Music Education. I look forward to working with you and/or your child in your musical journey!

About Maria
I am a flute performer, piano teacher and student of classical Indian music specifically in Dilruba. I graduated from my basic degree in flute performance at the Music Conservatory of Valencia, Venezuela. Recently, I am Music Business major at Florida International University and a student in Dilruba performance at the Raj Academy online program.

I am teaching a new method of piano learning that is most focused in which the children adopt a flexible attitude towards learning, create the habit of making connections, such as the ones between music and math, and apply the practice habits and memorization techniques from their piano study to other areas of their lives.

I have taught in music schools in Venezuela. I was a flute teacher and also a musical kindergarten teacher. I have participated in orchestras and music groups in Venezue
la and the US such as Youth Orchestra of Valencia, National Flute Orchestra of Venezuela, Chamber Music Orchestra of Universidad Arturo Michelena, FIU Symphony Orchestra, FIU Marching Band.

I am currently teaching as a volunteer in Mind & Melody, Inc. A non-profit organization that focused on bringing musical experience to participants with Alzheimers and dementia. The sessions are for one hour and they learn basic concepts of music and also explore different instruments through the demonstrations.

My goal is to teach music in a fun way and not only training the ear and the skills but also developing the mind and mindfulness.
