About Leonardo
Hi everyone! My name is Leonardo Ortegon and I am a Music Producer, Sound Engineer and Guitar Player. I graduated from Full Sail University with a major in Sound Engineering and a second major in Music Business.

I have been teaching guitar for over 10 years and recently decided to provide Music Production and Sound Engineering lessons as well. Ever since graduating Full Sail University in 2011, I developed a habit of analyzing in detail every aspect of music production, so I decided to share this information and guide everyone in the right direction.

I believe that every student has a unique way and speed for learning. That is why I always design a personalized lesson plan for each particular student. I have years of experience teaching children as well and I am aware of the different challenges and personalities kids can bring to
the table :)

One thing I want to express is my passion for music and my interest to share such passion with other people. I have spent countless hours analyzing different approaches on teaching and also how information should be presented. As a result, I am confident my teaching methods will only bring great results, as I will make sure every student will leave every lesson without confusion or doubts on the topics I will present.

About Lucian
Lucian W is an alumnus of Berklee College of Music in Boston and former faculty member of the Hartford Conservatory. His vocal studies have been with Jacqueline Jarrett and David Baker in Connecticut, Jane Ellison at Loyola University in Montreal, noted operatic tenor Carmine Gagliardi in New York City, and Gina Moretta (whose students have included Gloria Estefan and Jon Secada) in Miami. He studied privately with world famous jazz guitarists George Benson and Chuck Wayne and has had a full time performing career of several decades as a guitarist, pianist, vocalist, bassist, arranger and orchestra leader.
Lucian believes that by sharing his enjoyment of making music with his students, he can give them confidence in other areas. That is because, in order to make music, they must go through a process of physical discovery through pr
actice. They are then empowered by experiencing the connections between inspiration, work, and pleasure.
He performs, as a solo entertainer, an unusually wide ranging repertoire because of his versatility on guitar, piano, and vocals. Being an accomplished arranger with a vast library of charts also allows him to lead a ten piece orchestra as competently as a trio or quartet. He has performed extensively in New York, Chicago, Cape Cod, and Florida.

*** Lesson Details ***
I always try to make lessons as comfortable and enjoyable as possible yet challenging enough to maintain interest. I build lessons around the student's individual interests (specific songs or styles) so that he or she can learn the technical fundamentals in a relevant context.
My own curriculum is supplemented by the following:
Guitar: Hal Leonard Guitar Method, Aaron Shearer Classical Guitar Method
Piano: Alfred's Basic Piano Course , John W. Schaum Piano Course
Voice: Jeffrey Allen's Secrets of Singing, Nicola Vaccai Practical Method

*** Studio Equipment ***
Hardman baby grand acoustic piano
OptimusMD1600 electronic keyboard
Crate TX50D guitar amplifer

*** Specialties ***
- Singing lesson time is generally divided 50/50 between voice building and repertoire. I accompany vocalists on both piano and guitar, teaching the melody notes as they are sung along with the piano. Then, once the melody is learned, I often switch to the guitar with just chordal backing. The acoustic guitar is also softer than the piano and lets the singer hear their own voice better. For voice building, I use my own concepts plus approaches of famous voice teachers like Jeffrey Allen, Seth Riggs, and Anthony Frissel.
- I am very experienced performing all styles of guitar and can cater to the student's specific area of interest, whether it be rock, folk, classical, or jazz.
- With piano, I work on fundamentals of reading and technique. Learning basic harmony and chord construction starting with triads (3 note chords), the student can soon read single stave lead sheets (a form of music notation widely utilized by professional musicians) as well as the grand staff. This approach trains the ear and makes learning how to play popular songs much easier.

Lucian has a life time of experience as a practing musician, and also has been teaching for many years. I've had other guitar teachers, but Lucian​ is great at explanation and practical instruction. He's not just teaching you how to strum chords, but also about music theory.

He has the patience, and demeanor that is perfect for teaching. No easy task. I've seen other students of all ages here as well.

Great teacher

Mrs. Lorna is a great coach. She is patient and really wants you to learn. I have no singing experience so I'm starting from 0 and she's really encouraging. I truly recommend anyone who wants to improve to choose her as her coach, I already see improvements in my singing voice when I wasn't even sure it was possible.

About Hayden
I am a professional trombonist, composer, arranger, and teacher in South Florida. I graduated from the University of Miami with a Masters Degree in Studio Music and Jazz Trombone Performance and received a Bachelor of Music from the University of North Texas in Jazz Trombone Performance.

The goal of my lessons is to help students enjoy music. Through listening, singing, clapping, and playing, I take students through material that we both like and help them expand their abilities and understanding. I cater my material to each person's needs while including techniques to improve fundamentals.

As a professional musician, I perform a huge variety of styles for many occasions. As a college student, I studied traditional and modern jazz styles as well as Afro-Cuban and Brazilain genres. Between degrees, I performed on the cruise ships
of Royal Caribbean and Celebrity Cruise Lines around the world for thousands of guests. During this time, I developed an understanding of classic Motown, Pop, R&B, Broadway Musical, and Rock styles. I was a member of the award-winning Bad Cactus Brass Band in my hometown of Phoenix, AZ and a member of the Los Wedos Salsa band in Denton, TX. I use all this experience to expose students to a wide variety of musical possibilities and techniques to further their musical journey.

Hayden has been teaching private Trombone lessons to my 13th year old son for over a year now. Hayden is organized and reliable; he is always on time, and has helped my son sound great. Hayden is passionate about Jazz, and knowledgeable. My son enjoys having a teacher that is as passionate as he is, and younger that the usual Trombone teachers we have found. :-)
Hayden has prepared my son for All State competitions, and for many concerts with his school and/or the jazz band my son performs outside of school. I recommend Hayden 100%!!!

About Waldo
I am a professional Pianist, Composer, Choir Conductor, and Vocalist who also write songs, orchestrate, and make arrangements. Cuban who studied primarily in Cuba (ENA and ISA), and finished studying in the USA. I have played in several important Concert Halls, among them, it is included Carnegie Hall in NY. I have worked on several projects including music for TV and Musical Theater.

Even though I studied Classical Piano, I love Pop Music, Jazz, and I am always open to new genres, as long it is done with good taste and makes a positive impact on others. Creative, fun, professional and knowledgeable is the way I define my ART.

I have won several awards since I was younger after starting studying music at the age of 15, and since then I have had an intense career performing and creating music for endless different projects, such as
playing music alive for a play, composing music for Symphonic Orchestra, Contemporary music for different formats (like piano, violin, and clarinet), or even Musical Theater.

Teaching is one of my passions, and I have seen some of my students to be successful in National Musical Contests, such in Jazz in WorldStrides on Stage in New York City.

My 8 year old son had his second lesson and it is looking promising! Waldo is able to capture his attention and motivate him to learn! My kid is quick to tell you when he doesn’t want to do something anymore and when it comes to his piano lesson he’s ready to go! Looking forward to seeing his progression and love for music grow! I think we have the right teacher!

About Ana
Teaching piano through igniting interest and motivation in my students has always been a part of my professional life. I come from a family with extensive musical background and chose the same career path for myself. After moving to U.S. I was able to understand and appreciate the differences between Russian classical, strict, result oriented academic approach and American fun, inclusive and innovative way of teaching. My lessons include both results and fun associated with achieving them. I am happy to say that some of my younger students are so excited for our lessons that they wait for me to arrive outside their homes. And this is the driving force behind our lessons - results, exclusivity and motivation. Right now I am only working with RUSSIAN speaking children and adults, but hopefully when my English skills get better I will be abl
e to work with English speakers as well.

About Laura
I am a classically trained coloratura soprano. My specialty is Opera, though I have performed a lot of Musical Theater.
At the moment I teach in a Musical Theater academy.
I like to focus on the voice, but I make special emphasis in the overall performance. I like to dive in the acting, in order to achieve a complete and polished result.
I believe "great auditioning" is a skill that all performers must have in order to get the job and I like to teach my students how to audition.

I believe in teaching from experience and preparing my students for the real world. I have a Bachelors and a Masters in Voice Performance. I also have experience working in a few top Opera Houses and many Theaters. I love to teach, I believe that we need to prepare the future generations so they may give back to society, and in order to do this, they need to be
taught with structure, sensitivity to the student's preferences in genre and style and with lots of enthusiasm and good vibes.
