I hired Dan to teach guitar to my 13-year-old godson and I cannot be happier. Dan is everything he wrote in his profile and more. He was definitely prepared and he was patient and he really connected with my godson. After he left, my godson was extremely excited and happy that I hired Dan to teach him guitar.

I've been teaching Guitar for over 30 yrs.
Step by step guidance and exercises catered to the students ability and growing interest is key. My form of teaching helps all students through walks of life to establish a relationship with their instrument that helps them use the the time they have to better themselves at their pace.

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.

About Erik A.

Close
Miami Beach, FL

View Full Profile

Guitar and voice are my main instruments so I am very comfortable with them. I have taught students in many different styles and genres. I have a passion for music and am always keeping my ears open to hear new things. I cater the material to you and how you want to learn to play. I can teach from beginning to intermediate-advanced students.

About Erik
I want to teach you how to express yourself through music. I've been inspired by music since I was young and have been involved in one way or another since I started piano lessons at age 3. I've been playing guitar for over fifteen years and written and recorded music for about eight. Whether you want to go into music seriously as I have, or just use music as a hobby and way to express yourself, I want to help you accomplish your goal.

*** Lesson Details ***
Each person is different and learns in a slightly different way. Having said that, there are certain essentials which must not be ignored. If you've never taken lessons before, we'll start with the fundamentals, how to hold the guitar properly, make chords, build up finger strength, properly tune the guitar, know all the strings, and most importantly play songs. You will lea
rn how to read basic music, but I can teach you how to play by ear too. Before we have completed our series you or your children will have basic knowledge of all these things and a desire to explore at least some of these aspects further.

For me, the most interesting music reveals the unique perspective and feelings of the person who makes it. Having conquered the essentials I will encourage you to be creative with your developing talents. I can teach you about song structure and I can teach you how to jam with your friends. If you are interested in writing and composing, I can help you with that too. We can take a look at your favorite artists and try to discover how they accomplished and perfected their sound. If you want to learn how to record I have a computer equipped with Pro Tools and would be glad to show you how to use it.

You'll spend time listening to me of course, but I hope to spend much of my time listening to you as well. If reading music doesn't inspire you we can focus more on learning by ear. It's up to you. You'll need your own instrument obviously, though you can leave it at home if you don't want to carry it back and forth. I have guitars here. I request that you purchase a book with text and exercises so that you can practice and study what you learn in the class. Even if you do not want to read music, you will need to know the neck and conquer scale formations and chords. We can choose the text based on your needs.

About Lucian W.

Miami, FL

View Full Profile

- determining specific musical goals
- simple chords - strumming
- using the pick
- playing melodies

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.

I am an enthusiastic and patient teacher that will put your or your child's interests first. My lesson plan is based on what my students want to learn and I will teach some theory when needed but keep relating it to the guitar to keep the interest. I am mostly experienced in rock and pop styles of music but I will cater to what my students like.

About Nestor
Hello!

I am a professional lead guitar player, mixer, and bass player. I graduated from Berklee College of Music for music production/engineering. I also play in multiple rock bands in the miami area and have plenty of experience playing live.

I hope to get some students through this app in order to teach them how to express themselves through an instrument or software of choice. I am a very patient teacher and think that getting my students to be comfortable with me and their instrument is of the utmost importance. To do that I usually try talking about what they like be it music or something else.

Before I met Nestor I was in a bass rut and found myself doing and playing the same exact songs and notes over and over again. I have learned a lot from him. He taught me the scales, a few songs, and lessons on improvisation which all helped me become a better bassist overall. I strongly recommend him for all your musical needs. He rocks!

I had a fantastic time getting lessons from Nestor when I first started playing guitar, and then later again when I was what you'd call an "intermediate" player. What's great about Nestor is that he presses on the very important things about music and guitar playing but he also satisfies the curiosities of the student. If I wanted to learn something or practice something away from the lesson plan, we'd take some time to do them which was great because it kept everything new and interesting, and since it was always music related, nothing went to waste. Never a dull moment!

I am a Music Composer, Songwriter, and Producer. I like to use the guitar a lot to write songs. I like to incorporate music theory, composition, and songwriting into lessons. We can begin to develop aspects of how to create songs and sing to things that you write. We will go through learning the string names, note names how to read music and understand rhythms. We will learn scales, arpeggios, and playing music by ear. I can teach students that are completely new to the instrument.

About Alexander (AJ)
I am a Music Composer, Songwriter, and Producer. I graduated from Florida Atlantic University with a Music Composition degree. I studied with Grammy-nominated Producer Michael Zager and opened for the Airmen of the Note. I managed Hip Hop Artist Marcus Banks (opened for Ludacris). I play piano, guitar, and trombone. I completed an EP album entitled Lighter Days that I wrote, recorded, produced, and mixed.

I have 10 years of experience teaching lessons. I have taught for Reverb Lessons, Musician's Discount, and also as a self-employed instructor. I studied classical piano during college and performed for Music at Noon events at school. I have knowledge of Jazz, Classical, Latin, Alternative, R&B, Pop and Christian styles. I like to incorporate music theory, composition, and songwriting techniques during the lessons. I like to draw
out of the students and find out their interests and what it is they want to accomplish out of the instrument.

I am easy going, kind, personable, and patient. I like to take as much time as needed for the student to learn the material. I encourage them to do much listening to artists that have played their pieces and are similar to the style they are learning. I also recommend for them to listen to artists outside of the style they are currently learning. I write out what the student should work on throughout the week so we can be prepared for what to do on the lesson date. Lessons are relaxed and cover different aspects of playing to create a well rounded sound and musician.

I have performed for the Merrick Festival Celebration. I have performed in the Mizner Amphitheatre and the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center. I have performed nationally throughout the US. I have served as a Worship Leader at Crossbridge Church playing live during services and also rehearsing with the group to learn all material. I aspire to create more albums and to also write music for films and radio/television commercials. I am currently working on an album that I would like to release by the end of the year.

I like to play sports, exercise, and to be actively involved at church. I enjoy reading, cooking and writing. I am constantly watching documentaries and reading up on music articles, learning about the latest artists, trends, and musical equipment available.

Students will learn:
-How to hold and handle the instrument
-Right and left hand technique
-Basic music theory and site reading
-Chords and scales
-Appropriate repertoire

Lessons will be based off of classical studies but I encourage students to be creative with what they have learned both during and outside of the lessons.

About Ammanda
I am very passionate about my craft and it brings me great joy to share that with others. It is a wonderful and rewarding experience to watch a student progress through their studies and develop their own unique style along the way. I love to see that process.

I began as a self taught guitarist, which really paved the way for me to grow creatively, and develop a unique style. Because of that experience, I believe I will be able to steer a student in the direction of finding their own creative style. I am currently studying classical guitar at Miami-Dade College with an excellent instructor and a former student of classical and flamenco guitarist Pepe Romero.
