During lessons, we will learn proper playing techniques and reading notation. I can prepare you for a School orchestra or if you just want to learn popular songs for fun. My goal is to make all lessons with be fun, engaging, and you will look forward to the next lesson.

About Nicole
Nicole began her musical journey in Long Island, New York when she began piano lessons at age five. While receiving training on piano, she joined her elementary school orchestra in the 3rd grade and quickly soared with violin. During this period, Nicole began learning music theory and the art of reading music. As a fourth grader, Nicole would go on to conduct and tune every instrument in her orchestra during rehearsal. She always competed and won many NYSMA competitions for violin while attending music seminars and workshops. It was then that her teacher realized she had a gift. Nicole continued with piano lessons and began teaching herself guitar. Later, after college, she bought herself a drum set and began to teach herself drums.
As an adult, Nicole studied to become an elementary teacher and worked in the New York State Sch
ool Districts for over five years. Shortly after receiving her master€'s degree for Literacy Education, Nicole decided to attempt to share her passion for music. In 2007, Nicole opened a music studio in Holbrook, New York. Here, she refined her music teaching skills while establishing Nicolex Inc. Music Island as a leading source of quality music education. Her summer traveling music program allowed her students to experience live performances as well as create music groups with peers with the same passion for music.
Nicole now resides in Tampa, Florida with hopes to spread her business as well as the joy of music to children and adults. She currently is the drummer for a local original Soul/Rock band. Needless to say, she understands the importance that music has had in her life and wishes to ignite that passion in other music lovers.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching style is best labeled as kind but firm. I take my job very seriously and want wholeheartedly for my students to have music as a part of their life, not just a part of their day. I love to laugh and have fun but I will definitely expect my students to practice and complete any homework I assign and be prepared for the following lesson. Simply stated, music is fun and the love of my life, but if I still practice, you will as well. Otherwise, I always believe in teaching songs my students are interested in and will expand their musical skills. My experience as a public school teacher had enhanced my sense of finding individual needs of every student. Therefore, I always differentiate lessons to suit my students interest while teaching them the foundations every musician needs in order to be successful. My specialty is teaching a variety of instruments. I play drums, guitar, bass, piano, and sing as well. So, if one instrument is not for you, I can teach you something different without a problem. Long story short, friends, you are in good hands.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Full Service music room: Keyboard, Full drum kit, Electric Guitar with 30 watts Amp and Microphone/ vocal monitor.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can bring a 76 key Yahama YPG-235 Keyboard for your household to use for lessons for a small monthly rental fee. I have an Epiphone Electric Guitar with 30w amplifier. Will also bring microphone and monitor for vocal lessons.

*** Specialties ***
I have taught mostly Rock, Blues, and Classical genres for Piano, Guitar, Drums. Vocally, I specialize in R&B, Broadway, Pop, Top 100 and alternative/Hard Rock. I will adapt to your needs.

Every student is different, so I tailor my lesson plans around the student's specific learning style and needs. Ultimately, my goal is for my students to love music and love playing the violin as much as I do.

I encourage students to listen to as much music as they can and if there is ever a specific song or piece they want to I am more than happy to incorporate it into the lesson!

For younger students and beginners, I use Essential Elements or Suzuki books. I believe it is important to learn to read music from a young age, so I incorporate that into lessons for beginners. Scales and etudes are also key to providing a strong foundation for young students. A similar approach is also used for adult beginners.

For intermediate students I utilize the Solos for Young Violinists books as they provide a nice transition into more extensive solo repertoire. Depending on the need of the student, I might also pick specific pieces outside of the books that I think will enhance their ...

Katherine is teaching my 5-year old daughter to play violin. My daughter is a high energy kid who is still learning letters in kindergarten so Katherine has had her work cut out for her to teach her to play and read music. However, with patience and clever ways of teaching I can see that my daughter is understanding the fundamentals of music and if anyone can teach my daughter to play violin, it's Katherine.

Highly Recommended! Confident and Talented Violin Instructor

It had been over 5 years since I picked up my violin, so I was feeling very guilty and afraid of resuming lessons after such a long break. Kat never once made me feel guilty about the break - she was so encouraging yet firm with her recommendations for getting back to the skill level where I once was.

After just two lessons, I noticed a significant improvement, and I'm so excited to continue to regain my confidence in the coming weeks. I can't recommend her enough! She's a pleasure to work with and I'm grateful to have found such a great teacher to instruct me in something I enjoy so much.

Hello!

I have over 10 years of musical experience playing violin, and other instruments. I also have over 3 years of experience working with children ages 4-12. I have the ability to work with all ages.

My interest is in the student. I am interested in tailoring lessons to the goals and desires of each student. I specialize in students starting out and getting their feet wet in the music world. I believe in setting goals and achieving them in the way that works best for my students.

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!

I am an experienced violin and viola teacher of over six years. I specialize in beginner or intermediate levels and welcome all students ages four and up. Lesson are customized to fit individual needs and goals. Students will build a strong musical foundation while exploring technique, music theory, ear training and interpretation in a positive and exciting atmosphere.

About Rachael
I am currently pursuing a Master's degree in Viola Performance at Southern Illinois University. I graduated from the University of Maine with Bachelor's degrees in Music Education and Violin Performance.

I am passionate about collaborating with other musicians and regularly play in orchestras, chamber ensembles, festivals and bands. I began my musical studies on violin, however, my love of chamber music led me to explore the viola during college. I eventually chose viola as my primary instrument. I also have a strong interest in exploring a variety of styles including jazz, folk, fiddle and Baroque.

I have actively taught private violin and viola lessons for over six years. Additionally, I have directed a youth orchestra, coached chamber music, worked at summer camps and taught at Montessori Schools. My students range from ages four to
adult.

Students can expect to build a strong musical foundation through challenging and encouraging lessons. In addition to learning beautiful pieces of music, they will learn technique, ear training and music theory. My goal is to guide each of my students to become creative, joyful musicians.

Rachael is an amazing teacher. She started teaching my son in fourth grade. Her patience, perseverance, and knowledge took my son to another level; exceeding his peers. Under Rachael's instruction and guidance he was able to come so far; being accepted into a camp which he had to audition for, becoming principal violist in his school program and this year, became a rotating principal in our local prelude youth orchestra. None of this could have been achieved without Rachael's instruction. She was flexible when needed, available for advice during off hours and inspired my son to always aspire to do his best. If you are looking for an instructor that is patient, can look outside of the box and is in engaged in your student's success, Rachael is the teacher for you!

Rachael not only teaches students violin and viola; she helps them develop a love of music that compliments their education. She incorporates theory and history with fundamental music instruction. During her six and a half years of teaching in Bangor, Maine she was never at a loss for students, and her flexible schedule always found a way to accommodate new students.

She has a passion for music that radiates to her students, and she is well-liked by parents. Rachael’s creativity allows her to individualize lessons to students’ abilities and needs. It is evident in her teaching that she desires the student to succeed, and encourages them to seek performance opportunities. Rachael schedules regular recitals and has prepared several students for orchestra auditions.

Rachael has taught three of our children either as their primary teacher or as a tutor. She has always displayed patience and been encouraging, while challenging them to become better musicians. Her experience teaching private lessons in a studio, group lessons in a Montessori School, and conducting a youth orchestra allows her to use a variety of teaching techniques that helps students to excel. Additionally, she has taught in a music camp setting that allowed her to work with students on a more personal level.

Finally, Rachael is a professional when dealing with parents, and in all aspects of managing the business-side of teaching. She is a good communicator, patient, responsible, and punctual. A favorite of both students and parents.
