Ilona M.

Pompano Beach, FL

About Ilona

For my tutoring sessions I use skills that include goal-directedness, I teach how to organize learning in small steps and how to set them up; I always strive to motivate and engage my students to make the learning interesting and fun; I also use self-control skills to teach how to avoid distractions and I use different focusing strategies. I use positive mind set skills to teach how to use failures as a learning opportunities.

I have a Master's Degree (2012) in teaching English to speakers of other languages, and Bachelors in Music Education (2010), both from Florida Atlantic University,
as well as degree in violin performance from Poland.
I studied piano in Poland for 10 years & taught both piano & violin for over 20 years. I also teach flute & cello for the past 5 years, as I studied them during my Music Education program.

I teach music for over 24 years using the traditional and Suzuki methods. I am a fan of the Essential Elements 2000 for string instruments, and the Alfred's Piano Library for piano. Alfred's piano library can be used for any age as they also have books especially made for adult learners. I also like their music flash cards.
For teaching music theory I mostly used Master Theory.

I personalize every lesson, and always set goals for my students. Most of my violin students are members of the Florida Youth Orchestra as well as Gold Coast Youth Orchestra and my piano students participate in Pompano Beach competition and the annual Piano Guild auditions.
I teach any age and any level, and always stress that learning a new instrument is very similar to learning a new language, it needs a lot of patience, persistence and repetitions. My lessons are customized to my students needs, and are work in progress as they needs may change over time. I always remind my students that music can give them instant gratification when they learn to play favorite songs.
I always encourage my students to tell me about their music preferences, so I can incorporate them in their music lessons.

*** Lesson Details ***
All my tutoring sessions include reviews of previously learned material and if possible the use of technology. I use students books but often bring extra study materials if necessary.
All my lessons include: technique: I like to use the Finger Power for piano students and Essential Elements for my string students, and scales for both.
music theory: I use Master Theory or other books such as Hal Leonard's Piano Note spellers & Piano Music Theory books for younger ages, music flash cards to support learning notes and musical terminology, and of course the fun part performance.

Besides Essential Elements 2000 for strings I also use String Tunes and Fiddle Runners to add more fun to the lessons. For piano students I use Holiday Treats book, which comes in 2 different levels: Beginner & Intermediate, so my students have a new songs for a specific holiday.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I always bring violin with me to be able to show what I teach.

*** Travel Equipment ***
The students needs to have their books and assigned material ready for tutoring. Instrumental students needs to have their music books & instrument available as well as a pencil. I always stress with my students to be organized and prepared for their lesson, this way they will be able to focus better during the lesson. I bring my violin with me. I also ask that the room where the lesson takes place to be free of any distractions, such other siblings or any other noise. The quiet environment helps in faster learning.

*** Specialties ***
I tutor most K-12 subjects and prepare students to take ACT, SAT, GRE tests.
Music genres: Classical, traditional, Suzuki, Popular, Celtic, fiddle, Blues

Kristine M.

Deerfield Beach, FL

About Kristine

With four wonderful years of musical teaching experience, I share my gifts and talents with those who too want to express themselves through music. I believe music is worldwide language and so do not intend to stifle any students individual style or sound with technique. Instead I allow the student to take the lessons and techniques learned and together we find ways to adapt to that style so that their best 'musical picture' is heard.
Apart from teaching, I enjoy singing at my own gigs, doing backgrounds for other artists, and working on new music for production in the studio. I have produce
d my debut album in 2007 and have released two new singles marketed to the Caribbean/reggae/Latin genre. I have directed elementary and middle school choirs and led the musicianship of musicals.
I believe if a student has their talent, dream, and enthusiasm packed in their backpack...then they are ready to start lessons.

*** Lesson Details ***
Students will expect to do Breathing exercises, scales and other warm up exercises.
Students will have worked on a few piece songs for their repertoire based on their goals and unique style. I expect students to practice outside of the classroom so that each lesson is a building process. I am pretty laid back but I take your progress seriously. I like to enjoy the lesson with you and see you develop. After 3 or 6 months students will know how to breathe properly and effectively for singing support and endurance. Students will have identified how to control and use their tone- understanding the different levels of the voice, chest, middle and head voice.
I prefer to work with younger students at a beginning or intermediate level, as opposed to adults and advanced students.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Church Hall, small church, where keyboard
Living Room, full keyboard and CD player for accompanied, room for parents in living room

*** Travel Equipment ***
Student should have a keyboard or piano for lessons in their home.

*** Specialties ***
Classical, R&B

I LOVE KRISTINE!

I've been a student of Kristine for only a year and in that year I have learned so much from her. She has shown patience towards me because I am a little hard-headed and stubborn. Although I never really worked to my full potential, she still has helped me to improve in my singing. This class has given me the ability to reach a higher vocal range. Kristine is a beautiful woman inside and out who truly loves and cares for her students. I'm so glad I am able to have Kristine as my vocal coach. I wouldn't choose any other teacher.

Very grateful!

Kristine has been wonderful, encouraging and very, very patient with my daughter. She has taken the time and has allowed my daughter who is extremely shy, to move at her pace that's right for her. Kristine has been a blessing to my daughter, she is awesome and I am very grateful that my daughter has her as an instructor!

What I liked about Charles' teaching style is that he pushes, but in a very good way. My son took lessons with him, and a lot of times he can have teachers running in circles around him, but Charles was able to instruct in a way that worked very well and kept him focused.
