It was my first lesson and now I have some idea how hold the violin and the bow. My homework is to practice a few notes on each string and then to practice playing the A scale. I think I can do it in two octaves. What is challenging is to play the scale without hearing a screeching sound. I'm looking forward to playing like Sarah Chang (hopefully after five lessons).

Having had experience in Australian Symphony Orchestras and ensembles, Peter has the passion and expertise to take you as far as you want to go

About Peter
I began piano lessons at four years of age, and was blessed to have an amazing piano teacher, who taught me for 14 years. She gave me a passion to teach others and impart to them a love for music. I have carried on that calling and taught hundreds of adults and children over the last 30 years. I am very thorough in my method and customize each lesson around the goals and dreams of each student. I incorporate theory, ear training and technical into all my lessons, regardless of the style of music they are learning. This gives my students an all-round musical education and appreciation for this wonderful gift they have in their hands.

I have experience in the professional music world as a pianist and french horn player, performing with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, Australian Opera Chorus and Orchestra, Sydney Sinfonia, Sydney Philharmo
nic Orchestra and Choir, as well as productions of "Cats", "Phantom of the Opera", Sesame Street, and touring all over Australia, U.S.A. and Israel. I have also been a part of the worship teams at Hillsong Church and C3 Church Australia.

I studied at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, and also received my Licentiate Diploma from the Trinity College of London (L.T.C.L.) in French Horn (Teaching) and Licentiate Diploma from the Trinity College of London (L.T.C.L.) in Piano (Performance). So my experience not only comes from an inspiring teacher, but also from hundreds of performances on stages across the world working with the finest of musicians, singers, conductors and worship leaders.

I love music, and more so, love imparting it to others.

*** Lesson Details ***
Students come away from their lessons inspired and excited about their ability to accomplish their dreams. Whether it is to play 'Phantom of the Opera' or an Adele song, Debussy's Claire De Lune or Jingle Bells, I show them how to do it and help them get there. I am very thorough, taking no short cuts, but making it fun to learn an instrument. You will be amazed at what you are playing in three to six months!

*** Specialties ***
Classical, Jazz, Rock, Contemporary Christian

My son has studied french horn with Peter for 2 years now, and he looks forward to lessons every week. Under his guidance I've watched my teenager excel as a musician, and I've grown to admire Peter's teaching methods. We drive halfway across town to get to there ... because HE'S WORTH IT. It's true that Peter listens to his student's goals. He has literally tailored the lessons around my sons auditions while simultaneously giving him the necessary building blocks to continue growing musically.

About Alicia
Alicia has been playing the violin since she can remember thanks to her very talented musical family. Because of their efforts she received her first exposure to loving and teaching music at an early age through attending and later assisting her mother's Suzuki string program. They also afforded her the opportunity to learn with some of the finest violin teachers Miami has to offer.
A proud alumni of Miami's public arts programs, including those of Southwood Middle School, Coral Reef Senior High and the Greater Miami Youth Symphony, Alicia encourages all of her school-age students to explore their options of participating in the various youth arts organizations in the community.
In addition to her 15+ years training in violin technique and classical repertoire, she also has had almost 10 years of classical piano instructi
on and has had the privilege to perform classical, jazz, blues, latin and pop music from coast to coast and in Europe.

*** Lesson Details ***
I have found that students thrive in a curriculum that's to their pace, fun and conducive to creative thought. So I'm a fairly easygoing teacher. I wont chew you out, won't force you to practice scales on your head while you hold your breath. But I will level with you: Music takes commitment. The good news? It's really fun.
So, let me show you the joy and reward of learning music!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living Room transferred to music room: piano, computer, music stand and library, parents can sit in on lesson

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect student to have instrument, music stand, any appropriate books, and tuner (or home access to computer/internet)

*** Specialties ***
A Suzuki method influenced program that introduces classical music and theory step-by-step while incorporating fun games and your favorite songs.
Will also drill you on music theory and help you nail your first audition and performance.

Learning an instrument is the most effective way to improve yourself. No matter if for a hobby or seeking a career, playing an instrument helps shaping your connections with yourself and others. With over 15 years of experience performing and over 10 years teaching students aging from 5 to 85 years old, I learned the most important surviving skill in our times, how to connect.
During lesson time we will approach technical aspects of the instrument, such as bow hold, sound production, intonation, developing dexterity in the left hand, and so on. Also, the phrasing, music making, repertoire development, and interpretation. Even though our lessons are specific developed for the instrument, music theory and ear training are important subjects to be addressed as well.
If you are looking for a constructive hobby for yourself or your kids, or you would like to put that forgotten instrument in use again, we will work with you to make this one of the most enjoyable experiences possible.
