About Nicole
Voice & flute students age 10 and up
Piano students age 4 and up

(I've taught age 3 and up before, however the ages I've listed above for lessons is what I have found to be most effective. Group classes may be a good alternative for very young students seeking voice or band instruments.)

Hello, fellow music lovers! My name is Nicole and I would be honored to have the opportunity to help you take your music skills, whether beginning to advanced, to the next level! I am a singer with 25+ years of experience with solos, small ensemble groups, and large choirs. My singing styles range from opera, musical theatre, jazz, gospel, and christian contemporary, just to name a few. : )  I am also an experienced flutist with 5 + years of study and an intermediate-level pianist with about 5 years of study in the classical technique, and playin
g chords to follow most any style. I also enjoy teaching some music theory (the rules of music) in written, sight singing, and piano chords, if requested. Music theory along with voice and instrument lessons can provide a further understanding of each musical concept.

My training first began in elementary school, in Virginia Beach, VA, when I took my first group voice lessons and concert band classes as a beginning flutist. I continued my study with a large home school band in the 7th grade. I was then chosen to play the flute in an All City Band in Virginia Beach, for excellence in my performance skills. From there I continued my study at a private school in Virginia Beach with many chorus, band, and youth band classes to further my music reading and improvisational performance skills. At age eighteen I moved to Tampa, FL and became a Liberal Arts major with a concentration in Music at Hillsborough Community College (HCC). I graduated from HCC with an AA in Liberal Arts/Music. I was then accepted to further my music study at the University of South Florida (USF). I studied voice and a sampling of other instruments in the Music Education program. I graduated with two and one-half years of music education training and another four years of voice training with a BA in Music Studies. Also, during my college years I participated in the elite USF Chamber Singers, the University Singers, the Master Chorale of Tampa Bay, and many studio recitals. 

In 2013 I completed my fourth year of music teaching in a small private school in Tampa, FL. I have sang with Opera Tampa since their 2012-2013 season in the professional opera chorus for productions such as Carmen, The Magic Flute, and Madame Butterfly. I have continued to add new performance jobs with The Princeton Festival in Princeton, NJ (2014), St. Petersburg Opera in St Pete, FL , and the Tampa Spiritual Ensemble performing in the surrounding Tampa Bay areas. In addition, I continue my studies part time at the Patel Conservatory in downtown Tampa.  

I look forward to working with you to make all your music dreams come true! So, let's make beautiful music together very soon!  

*** Lesson Details ***
When taking lessons with me you can expect to learn in a very positive, encouraging, and laid back environment! I believe that learning is fun, very rewarding, and never stops. I plan to continue learning more about my craft for the rest of my life and I would encourage my students of all ages to adopt this mentality also. 

For voice lessons I like to begin with warm-ups and breathing exercises that can be modified to any style of songs. Then to song selections that will be enjoyable, yet helpful in making your voice better. For opera style I primarily use the G. Schirmer Opera Anthology books, and Hal Leonard published anthology series' for different art songs. For all other vocal styles I enjoy using various published individual-song sheet music or CDs and accompaniment tracks. Along the way giving all applicable tips for producing better sound, projection, breathing, phrasing, and musicality.

For flute lessons I would begin with scales or simple exercises. Then to specific pieces that you would want to work on or techniques from the Accent on Achievement or Standards of Excellence book series'.

For piano lessons I would begin with finger stretches, scale warm-ups and/or easy chords or pieces to get the fingers ready to practice. Then I would progress to your chosen pieces or a book from the Alfred or Bastien Piano Book series', which includes books for all levels and styles. 

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide CDs and/or lesson books, if needed.

*** Specialties ***
Vocal: Up to advanced level Classical, Jazz, Musical Theatre, R&B, Pop, Gospel, Sight-reading
Flute: Up to Intermediate level Classical, Sight-reading
Piano: Beginner & Intermediate levels Classical, Chord Theory, Sight-reading

Insightful and interesting. Nicole jumped right into the lesson with my 5 year old and managed to keep his focus and interest throughout. He learned several things in one lesson. We look forward to our future lessons with Nicole.

About Rob
I am an easy going, knowledgable and creative teacher. I strive to put the students and their personal needs first. I'm very aware that each student/person learns differently and I incorporate various strategies of learning into my lessons. There is a lot of humor and dialogue with my lessons, allowing my students the freedom to be themselves while playing.

As a school teacher, I have lots of experience in building student confidence and knowledge. If you aren't confident then you aren't progressing!

I like to record my students at different intervals of their education so they can hear the progress! I email a lesson recap after every lesson so that the student can see what we learned that week, including any notes/attachments for the student to review.

I also encourage my students to text/email/ or call with any questi
ons/concerns between lessons. This gives my students the ability to get through a challenging or difficult concept/strategy when its happening and not have to wait till the next lesson.

About Rick
I will create a free personalized WordPress syllabus after our first (short) interview.

We can work together via email, telephone, and even use video-conference software for a virtual meeting.

Or, if you're in the Tampa / Clearwater / St. Petersburg (Florida) area, we can meet the old-fashioned way, face-to-face! I actually prefer that because deskside training can be very productive!

An oft-repeated phrase is "Been There, Done That." It describes my nearly 30 years of experience with computers and on the Internet. I hosted websites and email from servers in my basement. In the 1990's, I was building PCs on my kitchen table, and manually installed RAM chip-by-individual-chip on the motherboard. (Yes, that is now an obsolete skill.)

I created my first website over 25 years ago. Today, I am a teacher, guide, coach, mentor,
web builder, a domain registrar, and a web hosting re-seller.

I'll be available to help you as you need me, on your schedule, because I am no longer seeking a full-time, punch-a-time-card job working for anyone else...!

I am available for all things computer: at home, at work, and on the Internet.

About Jason
I've been tutoring for over 30 years, so I have the experience to get you where you want to go. I can help you learn all about HTML, Microsoft Windows, Microsoft Office applications (including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, and Outlook), Mac OS, and even iPhone and iPad. I specialize in working with adults and people easily frustrated with technology.

I have always been the go-to-guy for friends and family, and have been tutoring people to help them learn to use their computers since 1985. I can teach you how to use your computers and devices, successfully repair files, create, edit, or give the finishing touches to work/personal projects.

Are you an adult who feels overwhelmed by the tasks of creating projects on your laptop or personal computer, or maximizing the use of your iPhone or iPad? Then I am your go-to-guy!

I am pati
ent, and we go at your learning pace, as fast or slow as you want, and you will not feel overwhelmed. Naturally, it takes a few times practicing the usage of a program or an app before you feel confident with it, and I am available to help you. I enjoy teaching people about their computers and it gives me joy to see them master the tasks.

About Larry
Hi All

I've been in the IT industry for 20 years and love learning and teaching/training others. I graduated with a B.S. degree in Management Information Systems at the University of Central Florida and was 3 credits short of a math minor.

I've worked for small to large organizations and helped with their database and report development. I've also had great success with performance optimizations and can teach techniques on how you can be great as well.

I like going to conferences and watching webinars to learn the most I can and apply it to my work/career.

I hope to work with you soon.

Thanks for your consideration,

Larry Tuch

About David
My name is David and I've been shooting photos and videos since I was a teenager. I've watched the amateur photo and video scene explode as I went through high school and college, learning just as much online as I did from going to film school. Now, I want to help others by imparting some of my knowledge I've gathered through my varied experiences.

I'm currently an in-house content creator for an independent K-12 school, but I've freelanced for musicians and non-profits as well as worked in a boutique Los Angeles production studio. I've learned and seen a lot over the years that has informed not only what I do but also how I advise others in my field.

While staying current with trends and technology is vital in the digital arts, it's important to study the classics that brought us to this point and understand the foundations that vis
ual art is build on. My lessons are not just about teaching you how to use a camera or software, but also design and composition principles.
