Uncle can you teach me. I like playing all types of instruments and I am also taking up music. My grandmother got me into music also and I play guitar, harmonica, accordion, drum and flute. As you can see I like music also and I do Karaoke with my mom who is your sis. We love you and one day God will join us together. I am proud you got your own place and one day I can take care of you. I am also thinking why I don't have any uncle from my mom side who I can be with. Love your Nephew Mario Barrios.

Chris Performance

I have been taking saxophone lessons with Chris for the past month and the experience has been invaluable. Their professionalism as well as dedication are two very important elements in the dynamics that has been developed. In the first class I could barely play a scale, and for the third week I could play 5 of them without any problem. We are now focusing on developing the style of swing that is something I have always wanted to learn. I know that with his guidance I'll get to where I want to be in relation to my musicianship.

Chirs Thanks for your interest and dedication.

Manny

PS: He has being able also to give me feedback by email or over the phone; something that is highly important for practicing the wright way.

I teach clarinet primarily through the tried and true Rubank method. Students will learn how to properly care for the instrument, how to read music, music theory, instrument technique, practice techniques, ear training (how to play by ear), reed selection, and repertoire. I also employ custom exercises specifically for clarinet to help my students progress the fastest.

About Kyle
Hello potential students! I have a B.A. in instrumental music education and composition. I have taught private lessons for over 12 years. Teaching private music lessons is my primary job, so I have much experience and wisdom compared to teachers who teach "on the side." Students of all ages stay with me a long time because I am very flexible in my teaching and know how to interact with many personalities and learning styles, producing great results and progress. My specialties are piano, woodwinds, and music technology (i.e. recording and production). You can find more information about me and what I do at caseymusicservice﮳com.

Kyle has given me contra bass, aka upright bass,weekly lessons from August 2015 through May 2016. I have never played a string instrument prior to this, although I do play piano and have played the flute, bagpipes, and piccolo over the years. I did not need education in reading music.

Kyle was able to take me from sounding like a lower octave version of Jack Benny (a mid-20th century comedian famous for his howlingly horrid violin playing) to a level where I know how to hold the instrument and the bow, the fingerings, bowing technique, and how to get a very respectable sound from the instrument.

He also installed the strings when I received the new instrument, found a manufacturing flaw in the bridge height that the manufacturer subsequently paid to repair, and diagnosed a resonance issue with the instrument that was corrected with a balance weight on the string below the bridge.

Topics to be covered include but aren't limited to: How to practice to make the most of our lessons and your time, good fundamentals and technique, sight reading,theory, improvisation, suggested listening and repertoire, audition prep...

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 have a Bachelor Degree in Clarinet Performance from FIU. I teach clarinet following the same principles I use in my piano method: Brain-Based Piano Method.

About Leidys
Hi, I love to teach children as young as 3 years old using my own Brain-Based Piano Method, a Mindful and Comprehensive Approach. My method is fun, engaging, effective and practical. My students learn to understand how music works. They learn from early on the basics of music: ear training, music theory, form, piano technique, reading and writing notes, and more. But more than anything else, I encourage my students to be creative from the very beginning. My method is a complete system for learning the piano that includes books, CDs, rewards, teaching materials and video tutorials accessible online. My goal is that my students learn how to perform with confidence and to create their own music. I want to make sure that they see the connections present in music and that they transfer all that knowledge to other aspects of their lives. Thanks

My daughter loves going to piano class, and asks when she is going back. I am amazed by the things that she has learned so quickly, and in such a short period of time. Each class introduces her to something new, or allows her to strengthen her skills in a new way. This method of teaching piano is so innovative because my daughter has learned how to play the right and left hand of a musical score with clapping and body movements. She has also learned to conduct, play with 5 fingers, and sing songs. All of this, and she has only had 4 classes. The connection to math and reading are amazing, and are evident during each moment. Highly recommended.

Our family experience with Leidys and Mihai was a wonderful one. They know how to incorporate the children into the classroom and made them feel important, which is great for the children's development. They were very kind and loving to my children. They are great people who are generous of their time and knowledge. They look forward to building bonds not only with the children, but also with the whole family. They give tips and suggestions on Music Education. They became friends to us and to my children! We highly recommend them to instill in children the love of Music in all its forms. They also provide piano classes for adults and their method is great!!! Only great things can be said about these amazing and caring teachers!!

I am so impressed with the BRAIN-BASED PIANO METHOD! I've had the opportunity to also be included in my 3-year-old granddaughter's piano lessons, and I'm amazed at what she has learned in just 5 lessons! This method is developmentally appropriate, and the lessons are so much fun!
My granddaughter greatly enjoys practice time and looks forward to her next lesson. As an early childhood teacher, I value the fact that it includes other activities besides just sitting and playing the piano. This is an excellent method, and one that I highly recommend!

My twin boys took private clarinet lessons with Mr. Byers. They learned and improved a lot in so little time. Unfortunately, he was relocated and lessons had to stop. My twins were sad when they were informed about this matter. My family and I wish him the best and he will be missed a lot. Thank you for everything you have done for our twin boys.
