About Scott
Hi! I'm Scott. I perform with a one-man band setup I created which utilizes a modified guitar and home-made foot pedals to control a drum set, while I sing on top of it all. I have a recording studio at home, and have performed with bands as a singer, guitarist, saxophonist, bassist, percussionist, and as a sound engineer. I've written, performed and recorded my own album which made it to the 2nd round of the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards, and was a voting member of the Philadelphia Chapter of the Grammy Committee and NARAS (National Association or the Recording Arts and Sciences.) I started piano lessons from age 5 and just kept picking up more instruments and gear as I got older and never stopped learning or enjoying it!

*** Lesson Details ***
I have been teaching Guitars, Basses, Percussion, Piano, Saxophone, Music Production, Re
cording, and Live Sound for 16 years.

I can teach you note-reading, tabs, ear training, music theory, composition, improvisation in just about any style of music.

Working with people writing songs is something I enjoy thoroughly; I can help you write and record your own songs. A computer and internet access are preferred to take full advantage of the technology for learning and producing music.

Knowledgeable in Instrument repair, set-up, and maintenance, I can help you fix it, and how to spot a good instrument.

Patient and experienced, with a broad knowledge of music in most areas, I can give you hundreds of good references from previous students I've taught over the years

*** Studio Equipment ***

Guitars, basses, percussion and drum sets, a piano, saxophones, hand drums, a 20-track digital recording studio with monitors that are equalized to the room's acoustics for accurate listening and mixing, plus an assortment of microphones, amps, mic stands, cables, and connectors.

I've been teaching Music for 5 plus years and my students have gone on to accomplish great things. My goal and challenge for every student is to teach them how to play, read and listen to music. This will enable them the ability to play any song and any style of music. I specialize in Jazz, R&B and Classical. Typically I learn my students leaning habits whether its hands on or visual and their attention span, so I can't effectively teach my students. I Can't wait to meet you!

About Charles
I have acquired over five years of teaching experience, travel from ages 5 to 17 acting and playing music. In addition I am a full-time music teacher and spend my free time volunteering at a local high school teaching music. I love music and teaching, it is amazing to see the look on a student face when they learn something new and even better when they perform and stun the audience the joy that my students get makes me happy its confirmation of a job well done.

What I liked about Charles' teaching style is that he pushes, but in a very good way. My son took lessons with him, and a lot of times he can have teachers running in circles around him, but Charles was able to instruct in a way that worked very well and kept him focused.

Recommended books:
-Stick Control: For the Snare Drummer by George Stone

I will expect students to study and practice on their own time. I will provide learning material. I will expect improvement every lesson starting from day one. We will get to know each other, set goals, and start from there. We will also be closely following a lesson plan.

Sights 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.

Good fundamentals, sight reading, theory, improvisation, how to practice.

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.

I've never taken singing lessons before, I had two 30min singing lessons with Ariel and it was very impressive to me how much knowledge he can share with you in only thirty min, specially with someone who has no understanding on the subject. He's very motivating and e makes you feel that it's possible to become a singer it's just a matter of practice! Looking forward to see him soon! This is a five star instructor!
