About Eric
Eric comes from a family of musicians. He began guitar lessons at age five as the Beatles were invading the American music scene. Growing up in New Jersey, Eric performed in rock bands until becoming interested in classical guitar. With New York City only a short bus ride away, he 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 he attended recitals of such notables as Andre Segovia, Julian Bream and John Williams. Being immersed in this musical scene inspired him to make music his life.

Eric earned a degree in Classical Guitar Performance from the Hartt School of Music at the University of Hartford, where he studied under the direction of guitar pedagogue, Richard Provost. While at Hartt and shortly after, Eri
c performed in numerous Master Classes for internationally acclaimed artists such as Manuel Barrueco, Christopher Parkening, Oscar Ghiglia, Michael Lorimer, and Carlos Barbosa-Lima.

Eric has 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.

Eric's experience includes performances with rock groups, stage bands, folk groups, classical ensembles, jazz combos, Broadway shows, operas, solo recitals, and concerto appearances. Eric has appeared hundreds times at Disney and Sea World as well as other venues around Central Florida.

Throughout the years he has had many unique experiences while performing, one of his 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 show, Win, Lose or Draw at EPCOT Center.

Although he enjoys performing, Eric 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.

We chose Carlos to be our son's guitar teacher as recomended by a family friend. He learned the basics of playing guitar in just a few months and he improved quickly for a 6 year old. Enjoying benefits of learning to read music has helped him gain confidence and helped improve his skills.

Carlos Vicenty is excellent!

I have been working with Carlos for about two months. I am an advanced player mostly self taught. I needed someone to give me new challenges and Carlos was just the ticket! In only a few lessons, he tied together many old concepts and gave me new ways to look at them. I always look forward to my lesson with Carlos.

About Melody
Hello. My name is Melody Cook. I graduated from Valencia College with an Associate of Arts degree in Piano Performance.

I began learning to play the piano when I was five. As an adult, I pursued other interests for several years, and returned to piano a few years ago. I studied Piano Performance for three years at Valencia college, and completed my degree in May, 2016, having received a GPA of 4.0 in all my classes.

As for my teaching experience, I was home schooled, so I taught some of my younger siblings reading, mathematics, and beginning piano. I have tutored children ages 5- 13 in reading and math. I worked as a daycare teacher off and on for a few years in my twenties, teaching children ages 2- 10. I taught an after school piano class in a middle school for a couple years. Since 2014, I have been teaching private piano lesso
ns to all ages.

I spent four years in Russia and helped some of my friends who were learning English as a foreign language.

While in Russia I studied the Russian language at the university for a year, and am proficient enough to teach beginning Russian.

On my profile I stated that I can teach students with special needs. I want to clarify that I do not have training or experience in this area, but I would be happy to try teaching children with special needs. It would be important to me to meet with the parents before the first class to discuss the special need and what I would need to know to be able to teach their child well.

[April, 2016]: I have a few students with ADHD and/or high functioning Autism. They are great piano students! They enjoy playing the piano and do well with it, and I love working with them!

About Dan
Winner of The Today Show "Today's Superstar" Television Series
Recording Artist / Producer / Writer / Television Talent/ Vocal Coach

Dan G captured the hearts of millions when Today Show viewers voted him “Today’s Superstar” in the highly rated television program’s Music Icon talent search series. Thousands of hopefuls audition and millions of viewers watched and voted weekly. This competition, created by American Idol Executive Producers, Warner Brother Records, and the Today Show launched Dan's career in television, radio, and the concert stage. He has released two albums and his hit single "More than Life" shot up to #12 on the Adult Contemporary Top 40.

Grammy Award winning producer and songwriter David Foster who has worked with Dan observes: "Dan can really sing. To the credit of the millions of people who voted, they pi
cked a guy that really, really, can sing! He has a great sense of timing. He gets it. He has a great sense of delivery of the lyrics, and really seems to care about what he is saying in a song."

Dan has appeared on all major US broadcast networks and prominent cable channels. He's been interviewed on Entertainment Tonight, Access Hollywood and Extra and has performed and been interviewed on the international talk show Christopher Close Up, which airs in 166 countries. He's been featured and performed for millions at the Kentucky Derby and the Christmas Tree Lighting at Rockefeller Center. He's performed the National Anthem for the New York Mets, the Knicks, and during national coverage of the Martin Luther King Jr. memorial observance. He has graced the stage at the Olympic Games in Atlanta as well as nationwide events for Coca-Cola and Walmart. He's been a celebrity guest on nationally syndicated radio shows like, "Delilah", “Your Weekend with Jim Brickman” and ABC radio. Dan's much more than a singer. He created, co-wrote, and co-produced a half-hour sitcom for Turner Network.

Dan's passion lies in using his talents and exposure to make a positive difference in the lives of others, especially children. That's why he founded YES YOU CAN!, a non-profit foundation created to inspire and empower kids through music.

Dan's been a guest speaker, host and presenter for many great causes, including the Teacher of the Year Awards, Camp Fire USA and Big Brothers Big Sisters.

Born in New York City, Dan was raised in Indiana as the youngest of five siblings. He attributes his strong work ethic and passion to his supportive family. Dan's love of singing began in the Mennonite Church, where four-part harmony was a staple. Having always known that he wanted to be a performer, Dan began preparing early in his childhood studying music through his college years. His classical training left him with a repertoire that includes singing fluently in Italian and Spanish as well as English.

Dan is enjoying his journey. He continues to perform and teach. He's working on new music and he's heavily involved with his foundation.

Dan is offering private voice and vocal performance lessons. He is now accepting new students.

My name is Dan G, and I have over 22 years of experience in teaching, performing and studying voice. I was a voice major in college, and I teach all styles, all levels, and all ages. I have studied, performed and recorded classical, pop, jazz, rhythm and blues, classic rock, country, folk, christian and other genres. I have performed for millions of viewers on television (11 times on NBC's Today show), radio, theater, and the stage. I've worked and recorded with many music producers including, David Foster and Jim Brickman. If you are interested in private professional voice lessons to grow as a musician, to become a better performer, for fun or because singing is just something you enjoy, please come see me. I look forward to working with you.
Thank you.

Dave is very knowledgeable and will work with you in any genre or style of music. As an older student I felt totally comfortable with Dave from the very first notes struck. I would highly recommend Dave to anyone wishing to improve their guitar skills....but dont expect to be playing like Clapton immediately!
My only issue is the long drive from Vero Beach to his studio. Something to take into consideration.

Stephanie worked with my 10-year-old daughter for 1 school year. She was very calm and able to explain things to my daughter in a way that she was able to improve. Also, Stephanie focused on teaching proper form and retrained my daughter to read music and learn appropriate timing. I did not realize it, but she did not learn these things from her previous teacher. We stopped lessons after 1 year because of my daughters' ballet schedule but had we continued we would have stayed with Stephanie. Based on a parent perspective, Stephanie always returned my calls/texts in a timely manner and communicated clearly in the event of any schedule changes. Also, she answered any questions I had about my daughter's progress thoroughly. She was a very professional young person and I recommend her wholeheartedly.

About Nancy
I am a certified instructor for Robert Whitford Piano Courses and Piano by Ear. In high school I was introduced to playing with chords along with the melody. That is where I learned of my gift playing by ear. Over the years of teaching, I realized that teaching these methods could help even traditional piano students excel in music theory and composing songs. I have been writing music for the past 40 years and now have created a "crash course" called Keyboard by Ear of all that I have learned over my lifetime. The two levels can be broken down into 30-60 minute lessons. The 2 levels can be completed in 12 weeks with 60 minute lessons. My greatest joy is in seeing students have "A-Haw" Musical Moments in a very short period of time.
