About Frixos
Frixos states that his love for music probably started before he was born. “I’m pretty sure the Motown sounds my mother loved to listen and move to permeated to me through her.” Add to that his exposure to different ethnic sounds like Greek (his origins) folklore and contemporary music, Portuguese Fado (his birthplace and early childhood), Italian Bel Canto and modern pop, American Jazz, Afro, etc. and it’s easy to see how music helped shape Frixos’ passion. Each had an influence on him, “as they were incessantly played by my parents,” Frixos adds. “In fact it would be safe to say that music was the predominant form of entertainment at home."

By the age of seven, Frixos started to frequent a music school where he was introduced to percussion instruments. Soon after, he took on classical guitar based on the UK Royal Academy of Music cu
rriculum. A couple of years later in 1998, Frixos found his true calling … music composition, Jazz and the Saxophone. Frixos’ purple tenor sax goes everywhere he goes!

“Part of my love for the Saxophone is rooted in this instrument’s versatility for improvisation.” Moving into music composition seemed a natural course for Frixos to follow, culminating in his graduation in 2013 with a University of Florida Music Composition BA from The New World School of the Arts in Miami.

“I was fortunate to be selected to play in various collegiate and other Jazz bands and be mentored by great jazz performers and educators.” Among them was Ed Calle, twice nominated for the Latin Grammy Award; Joe Donato, one of the most active and innovative musicians working in the field of jazz who has performed with many of the greats including Dizzy Gillespie, Art Blakey, Carmen McRae, Nina Simone, Jack Jones, and Arturo Sandoval; Rafael Valencia where “I was honored to play for his Latin Jazz Big Band” says Frixos; the wonderful pianist Jim Gasior who has played with Ed Calle, Wendy Pedersen, Fernando Ulibarri and Aaron Lebos; the published and well decorated guitarist Dr. Mike Di Liddo, to name a few.

Of course there were lesser known people that had a profound influence on Frixos for which he makes it a point to say that he is “eternally grateful”. He adds, “My passion for composing was further affirmed thanks to Dr. Susan Epstein Garcia who showed me that there’s no limit to musical expression.” Dr. Ferdinando De Sena brought Frixos another dimension through his teachings of electronic music.

Frixos seeks to create variety in his compositions, by using worldly rhythms and sounds expressed through a multitude of instrumental expressions to create his own unique contemporary sound. “I look for connections between different music genres, from classical, rock, pop, funk, reggae, fusion, jazz etc. These connections are what I bring to my music” continues Frixos.

In October 2007 Frixos released his first CD titled “Cause Frixion” which was dedicated to fund-raising for The Epilepsy Foundation of Florida. This album included a tune he wrote earlier that year called “Freedom”. Other works have been published more recently on the internet, namely cdbaby, iTunes etc. and are played on internet radio stations.

Frixos continues to perform gigs with different musicians and bands in venues around the Miami and Ft. Lauderdale area, including recording sessions for Fourth Dimension and others. He plays multiple instruments including alto, soprano and tenor sax, flute and keyboards. His performances comprise events at the renowned Van Dyke Café on Lincoln Road; Avenue D; Crescendo Jazz and Blues Lounge; Churchill’s Pub, a bastion for local musicians; Tobacco Road, the oldest music bar in Miami; Blue Jean Blues in Ft. Lauderdale where Al Kanovsky for The South Florida Jazz Scene wrote on October 15 2012, “They continued, raucously on, with everybody, musicians and audience having fun. A young man walked in, sax case in hand. Joe (Donato) invited him up to jam. What can I say. His name is Frixos, (yes it's right) and this kid can blow.”

Frixos did an excellent job with my son Ryan. It was Ryan's very first saxaphone lesson today, and he is excited and really enjoyed the lesson Frixos provided materials to study, was very patient, and Ryan made excellent progress for his very first lesson. We will be signing up our daughter with him later this week.

I have only been taking lessons for a short amount of time, but I feel as though I have learned SO much. We started from the basics and Ingrid did an amazing job at gaging the level I was at and working accordingly. She is so sweet and patient and really helps you learn all the basics one needs to play piano proficiently. After only five lessons, I was already playing entire songs. I'm excited to continue our lessons!

About Dale
I have been singing my entire life, starting as a boy soprano in my hometown Methodist church. I began playing piano at age six. From that time on, it was a journey of musical adventure, singing, playing piano and collaborating on productions.
I went on to get my Bachelor's Degree in vocal performance at UNC-G, where I performed lead roles in countless operas and musicals, as well as recitals, oratorios, and various church concerts. My next venture took me to NYC where I received my Master's Degree in opera at The Juilliard School. While living in the city for twenty+ years, I performed in every genre of music, even choral music, sharing the stage with Luciano Pavarotti, Marilyn Horne and Madeleine Kahn, to name a few. I was also in off-Broadway shows, while also working as an actor and model in commercials, print and runway work.
I rel
ocated to Miami in 2001 where I became choir conductor at Unity on the Bay in 2013. I am now the Director of the Music Ministry in the same location.

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.

About Nicole
I have been teaching voice, music and acting for over a decade in many capacities. I have taught K-8 general music, elementary and upper school chorus, acting, musical theatre, beginning piano and voice. I have taught in private schools, public schools and after-school centers.
Teaching private voice lessons is my very favorite part of my job. This is where I get to see my students passion and skill grow each week as we discover music and work through distinct challenges together. As an educator I believe that anyone can sing and that music and singing can be transformative. I believe that students gain skills that not only allow them to become a talented and well rounded individual, but also teach skills relating to confidence building, long-term goals, persistence, perseverance and patience.
I encourage students to take large l
eaps by performing annually in a recital and by participating in local assessments and competitions. I can also help students prepare for upcoming events such as a performance, wedding songs, talent show, or school audition.
I teach at my in home in Pinecrest- very close to The Falls shopping center. Parents or guests are always welcome to watch in on any lesson. I teach students of any age or skill set. I teach a variety of music: pop, rock, broadway, Disney, folk, art, classical, and worship. I can also teach music theory and sight singing.
