*** Lesson Details *** Damien is a very patient and moderately, laid back teacher. He will teach what you want to learn, yet give you suggestions on other avenues to approach. Basics lead to complete knowledge of any subject. S
tarting from the beginning of what a student knows and moving forward step by step will only lead to perfection in their lessons. Having fun doing this, is the only way to keep a student focused and progressing. Enjoyment is the number one focus of Damien's lessons. If a student isn't enjoying and having fun with their lessons then they will not progress. Damien teaches ages of 5-99. You are never too young or old to learn. Damien's main focus is guitar and music theory
*** Travel Equipment *** I would expect the student to provide their own guitar (if necessary) and a notebook I have private parking for my students, so they don't have to worry about parking, ever ! *** Specialties *** I have been taught, on a college level, of classical, jazz, ethnic musics. I specialize in guitar, theory, composition.
A great instrument to begin with and to learn the basics of music, but also a great secondary instrument to learn from a new perspective. Whether you are just getting started or have been playing for years and have found yourself in a rut and want to refresh and do some new things, ukulele lessons will help you to set and realize your goals in music.

Every student is an individual and responds better to different teaching styles as well as learn at their own pace. My goal as
a teacher is to give you an enjoyable experience in learning a new instrument and to tailor the lessons based on your interests and goals. After the first few months a beginner student can expect to have learned basic techniques and useful skills to allow them to play simple songs and melodies with ease.

Michael helped my wife and I get ready for our first dance for our wedding. Without him we wouldn't have been able to pull it off. He helped us learn so much in an extremely quick time schedule (about a month before the big day). Everything was easy going and fun. All of us joked a lot which made both my wife and I a lot less nervous. At the same time everything was extremely professional. He always helped us choose the best ways to do all the moves and showed us extra stuff to add if we felt we could do them on the day of. Michael, from the little time we knew him, is kind, sincere, and downright awesome. We can't thank him enough for how much he helped us.
I can teach all levels and many styles. I make it easy for you to learn at your own pace so you can achieve your goals and have fun playing music.
Tom has a music degree focused in guitar performance and a combined professional teaching and performance career that spans over twenty years.
Tom began teaching in 1994 and still practices today instructing students of all ages on guitar and bass techniques, as well as music theory.
Tom is very laid back and embraces working at the pace that each of his students feels most comfortable. Lessons are about the student’s ambitions. If it is learning their favorite songs or a deep dive into music theory, jazz improvisation or songwriting it can be covered in strides that seem fit to the student. Books can be used for guidance and a custom lesson plan created that will fit specific criteria desired to be achieved by the student. Remember, practice makes perfect. The more you put in, the more you will get out of it!!
I've been teaching ukulele for 15 years. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to strum accompaniments to simple songs. As time goes on you'll be able to play more advanced chords and combine melody with the chords to do solo arrangments. For Children, I typically use The Hal Leonard book "Ukulele for Kids". It's a great book for getting the student up and running very quickly. For Adults the Hal Leonard Ukulele Method book 1 and 2. For someone who has played before The National Guitar Workshop has a uke book that works well for a little more advanced students. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!
Welcome to my TL's profile!
If you're looking at this site, you're already on your way to becoming an AWESOME musician! Whether this is your first attempt at music lessons or you've been playing for a while and trying to improve your skills, I'm EXCITED about working with you. I am a professional music educator and performer that has a passion for music and teaching. I will gear each lesson to fit your musical interests and playing level, while I encourage and motivate. My goal is to use proven teaching methods and a supportive learning environment to help you realize your musical potential, as well as having FUN while doing it.
Here's some background about myself, to help you decide if I'm a good fit as your new instructor.
I come from a family of musicians. Began guitar lessons at age five as the Beatles were in
vading the American music scene. I grew up in New Jersey, performing in rock bands until becoming interested in classical guitar. With New York City only a short bus ride away, I spent as much time as possible in the city, studying guitar with Russian born Classical Guitarist, Dr. Alexander Bellow, and Jazz Legend "Bucky" Pizzarelli. During this time, I attended recitals of such notables as Andre Segovia, Julian Bream and John Williams. Being immersed in this musical scene inspired me to make music my life.
Earned a degree in Classical Guitar Performance from the Hartt School of Music at the University of Hartford, where I studied under the direction of guitar pedagogue, Richard Provost. While at Hartt and shortly after, I performed in numerous Master Classes for internationally acclaimed artists such as Manuel Barrueco, Christopher Parkening, Oscar Ghiglia, Michael Lorimer, and Carlos Barbosa-Lima.
I have taught guitar at the college level for over twenty years teaching on the music faculties of University of Central Florida, Rollins College, Stetson University, Bethune Cookman College, Florida Southern College, and St. Leo College. I taught private guitar lessons, class guitar, and guitar ensemble
I have appeared hundreds times at Disney and Sea World as well as other venues around Central Florida. My experience includes performing solo and in small groups. I have also performed with rock groups, stage bands, folk groups, classical ensembles, jazz combos, Broadway shows, operas, as well as solo recitals, and concerto appearances.
Throughout the years I have had many unique experiences while performing. One of my favorites being the opportunity to play the MASH theme song for Alan Alda as well as other stars in attendance at a cast party for the TV show, Win, Lose or Draw at EPCOT Center.
Although I enjoy performing, I considers teaching music to be highly gratifying. The importance of giving students a good foundation with the proper technique and performance skills cannot be underestimated. When a student can play a song from beginning to end with style and confidence you know you've given them a gift that will offer them enjoyment for the rest of their lives.
*** Studio Equipment *** Ipad apps, music stand, instrument stands, tuner, metronome, amp, chairs,
Eric is a knowledgeable, friendly and patient teacher.
July 24, 2019
I would highly recommend Eric at House of Music for guitar lessons. I am after a certain style of guitar music using finger picking to play for my special needs son. I have learned that not all teachers are familiar with this style. Thankfully, Eric is great at it. He is also teaching me how to read music and not just play the chords or tab which is something I had overlooked. I am thankful he has been able to work with me and my unique set of circumstances and help me reach my goals.

Eric Lesko taught my son Brian guitar 18 years ago when Brian was a teenager. My son got to a point that he didn't want to practice and we were thinking about giving up the lessons. However, Eric got Brian playing whatever kind of music my son was interested in and he continued taking for a few years thereafter, completely enjoying it. When I decided to take up the guitar around eight years ago, Eric was the first and only instructor I thought of. Besides being very capable musically, he is willing to move in any direction that you want in order to keep you interested and helping you achieve your goals. He always has suggestions on ways to approach a particular piece in order to make playing fun and not frustrating. He is also well-versed in the use of technology to make playing a continuum as you gain skills, making a huge difference in being able to get more out of practice. Finally, he is conveniently located in a new facility in downtown Oviedo and he is very flexible with lesson days and times. Eric's greatest asset is that he wants the student to enjoy playing as much as he does!
I will show them how to play chords notes tablature strum patterns fingerpicking patterns how do follow the chords play them in the song

Going to take time and Daniel is a font of knowledge, patient and funny):_
July 31, 2018
Daniel was a great instructor to learn with, he was very kind and likable as well as being a good teacher with a great understanding Spanish with an emphasis on spoken Spanish over academic Spanish. Daniel was a great teacher I would recommend to anyone.
January 10, 2018
Daniel understood exactly what my goals and abilities were. He presented the first lesson in an easy-to-understand manner. I am excite to work with him.
The Ukulele is such a fun instrument. It can be a great first instrument for beginning musicians to learn to play because within a few short weeks they'll be able to play many of their favorite songs. I keep the students goals in mind when teaching. I first start by teaching common chord progressions to build a solid foundation to strengthen fingers. From there we learn basic musician skills like keeping time and strum patterns. After that, I look at which songs the student wants to learn and we work on the songs in our lessons.
Hi my name is Hailey! I love to sing and absolutely love sharing the gift of music with others. I began to sing and write songs when I was very young. As I got older I pursued my passion of music and have developed my voice and song writing abilities with the help of many amazing teachers. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Music with a concentration in vocal performance, and have taken numerous courses in music including Vocal Pedagogy, Singing Diction, Vocal Literature, Music Theory, Music History, Song Writing, and Keyboard Harmony. If you would like to learn proper singing technique, while having fun expressing yourself, please contact me to help you!
Hailey is also a great great teacher, willing to pinpoint my strengths and weaknesses, highlight the strengths and then gently promote the weaknesses to help me be a better singer. Which is saying a tremendous amount, because my musical acumen/confidence/ability was a lot lower 2 months ago than it is now that I have worked with Hailey since then. Thanks!

Hailey has been the perfect piano teacher for our 10 year old daughter. She chooses songs, such as Disney music, that excite my daughter to learn, she establishes a structured practice schedule so my daughter makes practice part of her week, and most importantly she cares about her students and gets to know them as a person not just a piano student. My daughter looks forward to her piano lessons each week and we've seen great progress!
"Phillip was very insightful and made my lesson very applicable to me!"
"I have had a great time learning to play the Ukelele with Gkenn. So fun. Looking forward to learning more"
"Two Thumbs Up!"
"Very friendly, easy to understand and follow his direction"
"Edwin quickly found where I needed the most help (strumming patterns), and within minutes was guiding me through progressions to help me make progress. H
e also gave me some lessons on notation and helped me write some progressions down so that I could practice between now and our next lesson. He listened to my goals and taught in a way that will help me meet them."
"another great class -"
"Edwin very quickly identifies where you need help and sets you in the right direction using a friendly approach."
"Just had the first session with Calvin. He showed up on time, he was very patient the whole time."
Excellent fund of music knowledge and skillful instruction!"
