I teach the very beginner to the very advanced levels. combining piano technique with music theory and some history and analysis of western music so the student will understand what he's doing and be able to interpret in the right style of the music he's playing.

About Berthe
My name is Berthe ( pronounced Bert). At the age of 4, I began taking
piano lessons. By age 8, I was performing for the first time at the
Assembly Hall of the American University of Beirut. In 1978, I attended
the Faculty of Music of the Holy Spirit University of Kaslik/Lebanon,
where I completed a PhD. in music education and a higher diploma in
piano.
From 1982 to 2000, I taught piano, music theory, music education,
music appreciation, and the history of and analysis of Western music
at the University of the Holy Spirit of Kaslik (USEK), The University of St.
Joseph (USJ) and the Lebanese University (UL).
I recorded my first CD “Rehna Meshouar”, a collection of Lebanese
songs for children, intended to introduce music to kids. I took part in
many educational activities and devoted myself to the promotion of
musical educatio
n to the children. In 1995, I published my first book
“Do-Mi-Sol”, that focuses on a method specifically designed to teach kids
Solfege (oral theory and ear training).

From 1998 to 2001 I was in charge of training aspiring music teachers
at the Ecole Normale in piano, music education, psychology of music
education, and the philosophy of music education.
By the year 2000,I was appointed Director of Studies and the Academic
Secretary of the Music Faculty at the Holy Spirit University of Kaslik.
During my tenure, I employed teachers, advised students, and
developed artistic and academic programs. It was my responsibility to
organize studies and examinations, as well as plan, execute, organize studies and examinations, as well as plan and execute
concerts, conventions, and competitions. I have lectured all over Europe and the Middle East, as well as published many articles concerning music and music education.
Since moving to Florida in 2007, I am a professor of piano instruction at St. Petersburg College. I also give private lessons in my studio. I have served as a judge several times at the Bay Ridge Piano Festival.

*** Lesson Details ***
Our musical journey has a smooth and relaxed progression, establishing enough command of the keyboard to allow each student to develop naturally. To make the piano a richer and more rewarding experience, I enjoy introducing a variety of musical styles, from popular favorites to timeless classical pieces, according to the student’s musical tastes.

I believe in a dynamic and responsive method of teaching. I see the student as an active participant in their own learning. Our lesson feels pleasant and joyful, so the student will always delight in playing the piano and creating music. Based on the student’s age and demands, I employ several methods of teaching that lead to the development of observation, concentration, creativity, self-confidence, and personal expression. I encourage and support my students regardless of specific talent, as we move toward an effective and beneficial musical experience.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room: baby grand piano, additional seating for parents.

*** Specialties ***
I teach Classical music to beginners and advanced students and follow the active method of teaching where the student is not just a receiver but participate in his own learning.

As an older student returning to piano after many years I needed someone with patience, but also someone who would be willing to push me to give my best. She is just the right combination for my needs. She not only knows her subject very well, but is able to transfer her knowledge and passion for music to her students. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Berthe if you truly want to enjoy learning to play piano with passion.

My teaching style is very personable and friendly yet serious about results. Curriculum can be tailored to the student.For piano students I am currently using the Alfred's basic piano library series. Students can expect to progress to the next level within a 3 to 6 month period depending on student’s dedication. Reading, theory, and technique will all improve and grow at the same rate. My philosophy is that instruction should take a learners knowledge of music beyond the instrument.

About Jim
I have been teaching for the past 15 years as a private instructor. My students range in age from 5 years old to 64. I teach beginner and intermediate piano and beginner, intermediate, and advanced electric bass.
I've been playing professionally for the past 30 years as an electric bassist, pianist, and vocalist. Learn to play like your favorite artists while having fun and growing as a musician. For bass students, you can learn all styles that are desirable, such as funk techniques like slapping, R&B grooving, rock & roll driving, and jazz swinging. For piano students, you can expect to learn enough music theory to reach greater heights and move forward while developing a love for the piano and the world of music. I offer a teaching environment that is highly interactive and encourages students to play, and understand the dynamics of p
laying with other musicians. You will learn to read music but I promise you will not be bored.

Theory. Technique. Reading. Proper style. You'll learn it all here!

I've been helping people enjoy music for 26 years.

Having proper technical skills that become second nature and learning to read music will give you confidence.

I tailor lessons to each student's needs, talents and learning styles. And I will try to ensure that you play with ease and in a healthy manner with joy! I don't expect you to become a star (unless you want to) - just have a good time and play the music you want to.

About Laura
Of course you want an experienced, passionate, patient and compassionate teacher! Teaching is not my job; it is my calling and I am very good at it.

I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music Education (1987, Ball State University) and a Master of Music degree in Voice (1994, University of South Florida). I've taught in public schools in Sarasota. Currently I am adjunct staff for State College of Florida (formerly Manatee Community College) teaching private voice and piano lessons and music appreciation classes.

My music studio has been serving music students in the Sarasota area since 1991.

All are welcome! Lessons are for students of all abilities. Some students come with just the desire to sing or play better for their own pleasure, others come with prior training, some are preparing for an audition and some even wish to ma
ke a career in music. Some people have come seeking help with their speaking voice for public speaking. My goal is to help my students meet and exceed their goals and have more life through the joy of music, to help them gain greater appreciation of music and increase their confidence both in music and in life!

*** Lesson Details ***
When a student and I first meet I ask the student what her/his hopes, goals, tastes and prior experience are. Then we talk about plans for achieving those hopes and goals.

Most of my students are studying music just because they love music and want to improve for their own benefit. Because of that, while I want students to progress, I am very patient. I understand that some weeks it's harder to find time for practice. I provide instruction and tools for growth, and show how to practice, then the students go home, use them and discover what works best for them.

Vocal lessons are tailored to each individual. Exercises include posture, breathing, diction, projection of the voice, unification of the voice, improvement of tone, range and flexibility. Healthy, beautiful singing is the goal. The confidence that goes along with that is amazing!

CDs with exercises and accompaniments are provided. And students can make CDs of their own performances!

Piano instruction is also tailored to the needs of each individual student. With young beginners I often use the "Faber" method. It has books for music theory, technique, lessons and performance. And students enjoy playing along with the Cd that goes with their pieces.

For older beginners, including adults, I often use the "Bastien, Older Beginner" or "Alfred, Adult Beginner". Both quickly teach melody and chord reading so that students can play more interesting pieces within a month. The lesson materials are supplemented by simple classical pieces or other music the student is interested in.

When a student comes in with prior training I continue with what she/he has been working on and adjust it as necessary. Literature for more advanced students is chosen with their abilities, technical and expressive needs.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The studio area is closed off from the rest of the house. There is a small seating area for parents which is separated by a screen from the lesson area. I have a Yamaha CVP-103 digital keyboard with weighted and touch sensitive keys, plus lots of different instrument sounds and beats to make playing and singing more fun. I can also adjust the pitch of songs so that they fit the student's voice. The keyboard is plugged into a Super Scope Cd recorder; a microphone is plugged in as well. This allows me to make recordings of accompaniments and practice exercises, as well as recording students' performances. (See below for photos.)

*** Specialties ***
I have been teaching professionally since 1987; I have Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Music. I discover the goals a student has and give them the tools to reach those goals. My teaching style is structured yet highly personalized for the individual. I teach music ranging from Classical to Popular always using the best techniques.

Hello!

My name is Jessica. I love teaching, and adore my students.

I specialize in Voice, Piano, Ukulele, and Steel Drums.

I am energetic, excited, and love teaching the kind of music that makes my students excited, whether they love Taylor Swift, Willie Nelson, or Kendrick Lamar. I love creating songs with students as they learn to express themselves.

I can teach students how to read music, how to play by ear, how to play songs they love, and how to make each song their own.

I cater my lesson style to each individual person. I gauge where they are at and their personality style and respond in a personalized way to help them grow their passion for music and get some serious skills.

If you are looking for a highly regimented instructor who is very serious, I am not the one for you!

About Jessica
Hi! My name is Jessica

If you're looking for an enthusiastic teacher who loves her students (and may be a little bit nerdy), look no further! I teach voice, piano, ukulele, and steel drums.

Pasta, my dogs, and the color green are all the greatest things in life.

Music is a personal journey, and is unique for each person. I love to help people discover and grow their own passion. There is nothing more rewarding than being a part of watching someone develop into an artist who then goes on to influence others on their own journey.

Whatever it is you need, whatever you are here for, your passion is what will push you and lead you, and I am just here to help you with whatever direction you choose.

I have a solid background in live performance, professional gigging, music writing, singing, music theory, and of course in your ins
trument of choice. So whatever you'd like to work on I can help.

Can't wait to meet you! :)

I believe that learning an instrument is a journey, just think of me as a tour guide! I believe in learning at your own pace and learning the things you are most interested in. Every step is an accomplishment and I want to assist you in stepping in the directions that will take you where you want to go.

About Chelsea
Welcome everyone!

I have a few beliefs:

I believe that everyone should know how to play an instrument. Whether it is violin, ukulele, piano, their voice, whatever! Music is a part of what makes us human, and is important for personal development.

I believe that no one is "too old" to start up an instrument. Age is only a number and it is never too late to start up something that may become a passion.

I believe that learning an instrument is a journey. Any journey has its ups and downs, but in the end, you are glad you took that first step.

I have been playing violin for over 10 years, and along the way have picked up some ukulele, voice, bass guitar, acoustic guitar, and piano. I am a teacher, and I have the knowledge and know-how to pass along to any student. However, I also consider myself a student in that I am always
looking to learn how to improve myself.

Any student of mine will have 100% of my interest in their growth and development as a musician. I can work with a wide variance of ages, having experience in ages 4-12 year old children.

I look forward to meeting with you soon!

Chelsea is a wonderful teacher. Playing a plastic recorder for a week in fourth grade music class is the extent of my musical experience and that was a LONG time ago. Chelsea is great at finding the right place for me to start learning and then laying out for me exactly what I need to work on in order to progress to the next stage of my learning process. I had been considering teaching myself how to play the violin via youtube videos but learned more in the span of one hour-long session with Chelsea than I could have learned in a week going that route. Chelsea was able to address the importance of things like posture and breathing to achieve the best possible sound, without that real time one-on-one instruction this would have been a nuance that I would not have ever picked up on. She is punctual, friendly, polite and patient. I highly recommend hiring her to teach you or your kids an instrument.

I have seen which are the problems that most of the students struggle with and I also have seen a lot of teachers that don't help them in a good way.

So that's why I created lessons with an individual approach for each student, applying knowledge that I received from wonderful teachers I have had.

I come from a strict Russian method, but I found a way to balance this methods with the student itself, because everyone is unique.

About Alejandro
Hello! I'm from Venezuela, a country that has a lot of rhythms and music colors.

I started at the age of 6 and then formally at the age of 12 (a little bit late). I studied at the Simon Bolivar Conservatory in Caracas and then I moved to the US.

Here the mix of different cultures and music has created a deep impact on me, so I tend to create interesting programs for my students. Music that goes from J.S. Bach to Samuel Barber, or from Igor Stravinsky to Juan Vicente Lecuna.

I also have attend masterclasses of wonderful teachers such as Simone Dinnerstein, Yoheved Kaplinsky, András Schiff, Jerome Lowenthal and Hung Kuan Chen. Experiences that have been very enriching.

In Venezuela, I also studied venezuelan piano music with the pianist and composer Luisa Elena Paesano, and with pianist Guiomar Narváez. They impulsed me in a way that I
started to work with the contemporary composers that are still alive and that still create academic music inspired in Venezuelan rhythms and flavors.

It will be very exciting to share all these experiences with my future students!
