Private Piano Teacher

I have been helping beginners and other more experienced musicians to learn to play the piano for 23 years. We can start from scratch and advance through five levels of piano methods. I have used various published methods over the years depending upon the experience and age of the student. I emphasize fundamental techniques of piano playing and music reading. A good piano player can eventually play any style he or she would like to focus on. It is never too late, you can begin to learn to play piano today!

About Tony

If you want to be the best, learn from the best. Talent, skill, confidence- priceless!. Choosing the right voice coach or singing teacher can be a difficult task, as there are so many coaches and teachers out there. My approach is unique in a sense that I do not believe in a "One size fits all"

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.

I have been playing for years, but in a few hours, James guided me to unlock my full potential. I am very happy with my investment in his classes and I am looking forward to booking another set. Jazz, improv, interpretation were areas I struggled in as I received a very strict classical piano education. The classes are fun and my assignments helped me advance quickly and effortlessly. Highly recommended!

My 6-year old is taking her first lessons of any kind with Mr. Jim. He was very welcoming, got right into the lesson and made her feel very comfortable. It was an easy-going, laid back lesson perfect for her first experience!

I have never met a person who regretted taking piano lessons!

Piano lessons are an excellent way to engage all parts of your brain while having fun.

My lessons include: note reading, technique, music theory, ear training, and musicianship.

Although I can teach a variety of genres, my specialty is in classical music.

I would like to highly recommend Ivan Shallal as a music teacher for children. Ivan is a gifted piano teacher. He is very well-respected in Rochester Hills and Troy, Michigan. This community is extremely fortunate to have a music teacher of his caliber to teach in this area.

Ivan is passionate about music. His love for the art is evident in his enthusiastic and energetic teaching techniques. He is exceedingly patient with all students, encourages them, and coaxes the very best effort from each one. Although he is one of the best music teachers in the zone, his prices are extremely reasonable. In my opinion, he is worth every penny he charges, and I certainly believe I have received excellent service for my money.

It is my great pleasure to recommend Ivan Shallal as a music teacher. I am tremendously grateful to him for everything he has taught my daughter.
Lamis
Ivan was an absolutely wonderful Piano teacher to my son, who was 3-4 years old at the time. My son had a peculiar way of learning and appreciating music, and Ivan seamlessly adapted to my son’s learning style, engaged with him in a fun but effective dynamic, and taught him skills beyond my expectations! He’s kind, patient and highly skilled as a teacher. I would highly recommend him to anyone!
Shirin
Ivan was the piano teacher for my 3 boys ages 14, 12 and 7 years old for about 2 years. Before Ivan, my kids lost interest in learning and practicing piano. Ivan was able to engage their interest and make them love practicing. He encouraged them to pick music from famous songs or movies which helped to attract their attention. My kids looked at him as a role model. It was a pleasure having him as their piano teacher. He is a great one. It was a big loss for us when he moved out of the state. He is highly recommended.

Learning piano or any instrument takes patience and is rewarding to see progress. I give the student time to learn and process their songs. I welcome questions and give professional feedback. I think of myself of more of a music coach to provide support through your musical journey.

I started playing the piano when I was about 8 years old living in Salt Lake City Utah. My family would be watching TV or doing something else and I would go upstairs and play the piano instead. I practiced until I got to the level to play Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata original composition. I still

My son has sensory processing disorder and delayed fine motor skills. We started piano lessons to help him catch up. The results of Angie's positive, patient and encouraging approach exceeded our expectations. Her lessons not only improved my son's dexterity, but they also helped my son to appreciate, play and compose music. He has even chosen to evolve his percussion skills in band class. I highly recommend her for any family.

"Learning to play the piano was a lifelong dream of mine. I’ve been taking lessons from Janet now for five years. As an “adult” student starting from scratch, I was concerned that I would never really be able to understand music or become truly competent. When I look back to where I started from and how far I’ve come, I’m amazed. Janet is truly a genius at teaching. She makes difficult concepts easy to understand. And she truly understands the challenges of the adult learner. But learning is always enjoyable, never stressful. I look forward to my lessons and even my at-home practicing sessions. It’s become a kind of therapy for me! I would recommend Janet and the Fine Arts Music School to any who is serious about learning to play the piano.

Piano Lessons for Tampa's Every Mood

By Lisa F. - Tampa Piano Teacher

Through years of research, it is a well researched conclusion that studying piano increases intelligence. Everything from higher math and reading scores to increasing IQ's has been studied, put to the test via the scientific method and positively proven. Simply put, students who take music lessons do better in overall school performance. It is also well known that music influences mood. Think about all the emotions you had the last time you watched a movie and experienced the effects of the so-called "background music".

Yet, music has a function that is far greater than positively impacting academic performance or setting the mood. Music can actually be used to change an emotional state from a negative one to a positive one. I have had many experiences witnessing this phenomenon. During the 1990's, I worked in several mental health facilities in Florida that served both inpatient and outpatient populations while also continuing to work as a part-time piano instructor teaching piano lessons in Tampa. My duties included leading both music therapy and psychotherapy individual and group sessions.

Using piano music via patient participation, I was able to help schizophrenic patients comply with taking medication and clinically depressed patients become stable and feel happier even when other traditional therapies failed! Listening to, singing and/or performing sad pieces of music then gradually playing happier music results in changing mood from that of sad to happy. It is amazing to witness and even more awesome to experience such changes in mood.

If playing piano music can be used to help chronically mentally ill patients function at a higher level, imagine the possibilities of what performing music can do for you! Sign up for piano lessons in Tampa today!
