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.

Students will experience learning music theory and reading music notation. For beginners, teacher will choose book based upon the student age and ability and parents will pay for the instructional book. For advanced students, if you have books already, we can work out of them or I can recommend an advanced book for you.

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.

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.

Lessons and curriculem are tailored to the students abilities and interests. Traditional note reading and/or chord chart playing, classical or popular music with improvisation skills can be pursued.
However, beginners should understand that there are skills everyone needs to begin with to progress. I incorporate duet playing to enhance beginner songs and to teach ensemble playing at all levels.
Most of my students pursue piano for their own enjoyment or for ensemble,church and social gatherings. However, because of 2 years of piano study at the University level, I am very comfortable with those who wish to prepare for competition and advanced study.

About Mary
About You for Take Lessons

I have enjoyed the challenge of assisting music students for over 30 years with ALL kinds of styles/literature/repertoire. I provide training for classical, broadway, contemporary, folk, pop music, sacred music styles and love to encourage jazz and gospel stlyes too.

I create a course of study to fit individual student interests and needs. My relationship with my students is a two-way street; I often learn from them as we explore their interest in God's wonderful gift of music!

Teaching at various private schools, including theater school and directing both contemporary praise bands and traditional church choirs has provided enjoyable contrasts for me.

Before teaching teens and adults, I taught elementary music in public schools for 10 years and trained university interns, followed by work as a voc
al graduate assistant at the University of South Florida. I hold both a B.A.in Music Education and an M.A. in Vocal Performance with Voice, Choral, Music Education and Piano Pedagogy emphasis.

I have adjudicated for the Florida Vocal Association Solo and Ensemble Festivals and the National Association of Teachers of Singing Student Auditions. Former students are pursuing careers as performers, composers, music teachers and music ministers ..........and singing to their babies!

*** Lesson Details ***

Piano Study

I provide a variety of instruction: Classical, Traditional and Worship Chords/Chord Chart approach with Improvisation.

Lessons and curriculum are tailored to the students abilities and interests.Note reading and/or chord chart playing, classical or popular music with beginning improvisation skills can be pursued.
However, beginners should understand that there are skills everyone needs to begin with to progress into any style.

I incorporate duet playing to enhance beginner songs and to teach ensemble playing at all levels.
Most of my students pursue piano for their own enjoyment or for ensemble,church and social gatherings. However, because of 2 years of piano study at the University level, I am very comfortable with those who wish to prepare for competition and advanced study.

I teach private lessons to ages 8 & up.
For Younger Students I offer 4 Music Enrichment small classes with guardians in the SUMMER, with a more play-like approach to music readiness activities; such as movement songs developing steady beat, rhythm awareness, finger dexterity and form. The 4 hour long classes are the same charge as 2 half hour private lessons.

Vocal Study

Vocal students often come wanting to sing the current Pop or Rock songs they sing along wit . Although I will use these songs for competitions or fun pieces, these popular songs often don't lend themselves to vocal study very well. Even Pop and Rock singers study with the classics of Jazz, Pop and Broadway to develop their voice. I am best versed at literature from Classical, Broadway, Classic Pop and Jazz, Folk, Traditional Sacred and Contemporary Christian Styles.

We are beautifully and wonderfully made in such a way that certain foundational, physical aspects of singing will help everyone. I teach the foundations for a physiologically correct technique that enhances every style. This has helped all singers, including those who are experiencing discomfort when they sing.

Singing is as natural to me as speaking but I wasn't always this way. That's why I love to help anyone become comfortable or better at expressing themselves through singing. Vocal students of all levels, beginning to advanced, are welcome.

Singing is a very individual thing and I approach each student uniquely. I have multiple experiences and styles to draw from.

I prefer to teach lessons to age 11 & up but will work with younger students if they are ready.

Vocal students can receive music reading training if they desire it, but since 30 minutes is a minimum for developing physical foundational techniques and music selections, lessons would need to be 45 minutes or an hour to include vocal sight reading.
I love helping students expand their ability, whatever their starting point. Musicality is even more important than a display of difficult music, so I take time to encourage expressiveness.

Our initial session,
I am interested in learning about each student's personal tastes, and any past experiences and goals. Then we will proceed to explore their instrument, whether it is their own voice or the piano.
A student's goals and resources will influence my choices from a wide variety of curriculum that are beneficial for steady progress. I will collaborate with them to choose musical selections, incorporating their goals and tastes.

___________________________________________________

Enjoying the ability to express oneself through music is of primary importance. While challenging my students to steadily grow in their capability, their appreciation of compositions and ability to communicate them; I also encourage their feedback to assess what works best for them.

I love helping students expand their ability, whatever their starting point. Musicality is even more important than a display of difficult music, so I take time to encourage expressiveness.

Older students need to be able to focus on developing technique and accept the home practice involved to learn ( and in the case of piano "read" ) and expressively sing/ play their selections.

Adult students are self directed and I accept their self pacing for home practice. But where parents are involved, I discuss a practice plan and encourage it. However, a student should never skip a lesson because they didn't practice. We all need a jump start sometimes.

Materials: I will discuss the need for curriculum with students before purchasing items.
Curriculum is chosen based on the students goals. There is a $2 monthly fee for piano students who will benefit from the sequential music games offered online through my teacher account.

I would highly recommend Tony Mitri as a voice and music instructor. My son takes lessons with Mr. Mitri and his progress has been astounding! He studies with other teachers previously without much success. My son has said he has learned more from Mr. Mitri than all of his previous instructors. He enjoys the lessons so he works harder at making progress and it shows. He helped him expand his range substantially, and increase his confidence. I would highly recommend him to anyone interested in music of any kind. Mr.Mitri is awesome professional, patient and extremely knowledgeable. You won’t be disappointed.

My 7-year-old daughter A. took piano lessons from Ms. Yuliya for a year. We would have stayed with her indefinitely had she not moved away. I think Yuliya is a wonderful teacher for children and for adults. In my opinion, she individualizes her approach for each student. Yuliya is kind but firm; patient but has expectations! She is the consummate teacher. My daughter A. had never been taken piano lessons prior to her year with Ms. Yuliya and her music reading was not where it should have been. Under Yuliya's tutelage (she has her own method on how to teach children to read music) however, I would say she caught on quite well. I was deeply pleased to see that Yuliya sets the bar high. And, my child rose to the challenge. Yuliya uses the lesson time very well. Her lessons include a wide diversity of skill development through the usual collection of level appropriate performance and practice books. A’s repertoire of music she can play grew very much this past year. Our daughter was happy to play her Christmas song for her first recital and then Spring piano recital, also she performed at the Maryland State Spring Festival Piano Solo an got rated as Excellent!!! Then she performed at Twenty-second annual Sonatina and Sonata Festival and got a certificate of achievement in musical performance in level one!!! Also, she performed at Rockville Competition and got a Superior!!! And all these thanks to our amazing teacher Ms. Yuliya!!! We love and miss her so much!!!

Mr Radeck is an exceptionally talented and versatile musician. At Christ Presbyterian Church, I have seen him in action at his lively ragtime concerts, sung many of his original compositions and fine arrangements and shared together piano and organ duets. Steven has a unique insight into fulfilling the needs of participants with fast results and a touch of humor. He is masterfully comfortable in the shoes of choral director, pianist, organist, teacher, composer, and performer.
He has been trained and has performed among the great musicians of our age and keenly shares his own very special talent.

About Katherine
My name is Katie!

​I’m from the sunshine state and I’m in my mid-20s with a passion to inspire passion in music!

I have been playing piano since I was a wee lass. Around 4 my parents put me in Children’s Music Academy in Denver, CO! It was a wonderful foundation for me to take off into music.

My education continued when we moved to Florida, I attended the local performing arts middle school, John Hopkins Middle School where I studied piano and guitar. I continued my studies at my performing arts high school in St. Petersburg, Pinellas County Center for the Arts at Gibbs High school. A mouthful, I know! We just call it PCCA around the 'burg. I had a few very influential teachers that gave me the inspiration to continue music in college. I was very lucky to find professors at UT that gave me the opportunity to pursue anything that pique
d my interest and fan the flames of inspiration.
