About Monique
I began playing violin for over 30 years and have been teaching since the year 2000. I studied at the Newark Community School of the Arts for 12 years and in the Greater Newark Youth Orchestra where I played at the New Jersey PAC and Historic Symphony Hall. I've taken master classes from John Smith (teacher to Regina Carter), and taught by global performer Aiko Goto and several teachers from Juliard including Hiroshima Shimura, I have performed at festivals and weddings and taught across the country in orchestras, quartets and music camps. Most of my teaching has been with private students age range has been from 3-67

*** Lesson Details ***
I specialize in beginner and intermediate instruction and music theory (how to hold, how to read music, how to play by ear). I teach using the Suzuki method as well as a creative process to write,
read, and execute your own music. Solo pieces, holiday music, chamber quartet or orchestral arrangements etc. I have years of experience teaching adults because I believe it's never too late to learn and all people should have access to learn the arts. I teach out of my building's private room in miami beach and there is street parking after 5pm. I am the only searchable south beach violin teacher.

Music stand, chairs, additional seating for parents and other child(ren) is available in the lobby downstairs.

About Sepehrdad
As an experienced Violin teacher I help students to teach themselves the violin, to understood that their playing only improves when they change habits. A bored or disinterested child simply won’t progress, and a great violin teacher knows how to communicate with creativity and clarity. I have proper knowledge of the violin’s mechanics, general musical and repertoire knowledge, skilled as a player, and strength as a communicator. I have a bachelor degree in string performance, and I’ve taught students from beginner to advance for more than 10 years, guided students participating in inter-school musical shows, competitions and different musical presentations – Fests and orchestras. I teach both Suzuki and traditional method depending on the level of student.

During lessons, we will learn proper playing techniques and reading notation. I can prepare a student for a School orchestra or if the student just wants to learn popular songs for fun. My goal is to make all lessons fun, engaging, and hopefully the student will look forward to the next lesson.

About Nicole
Nicole began her musical journey in Long Island, New York when she began piano lessons at age five. While receiving training on piano, she joined her elementary school orchestra in the 3rd grade and quickly soared with violin. During this period, Nicole began learning music theory and the art of reading music. As a fourth grader, Nicole would go on to conduct and tune every instrument in her orchestra during rehearsal. She always competed and won many NYSMA competitions for violin while attending music seminars and workshops. It was then that her teacher realized she had a gift. Nicole continued with piano lessons and began teaching herself guitar. Later, after college, she bought herself a drum set and began to teach herself drums.
As an adult, Nicole studied to become an elementary teacher and worked in the New York State Sch
ool Districts for over five years. Shortly after receiving her master€'s degree for Literacy Education, Nicole decided to attempt to share her passion for music. In 2007, Nicole opened a music studio in Holbrook, New York. Here, she refined her music teaching skills while establishing Nicolex Inc. Music Island as a leading source of quality music education. Her summer traveling music program allowed her students to experience live performances as well as create music groups with peers with the same passion for music.
Nicole now resides in Tampa, Florida with hopes to spread her business as well as the joy of music to children and adults. She currently is the drummer for a local original Soul/Rock band. Needless to say, she understands the importance that music has had in her life and wishes to ignite that passion in other music lovers.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching style is best labeled as kind but firm. I take my job very seriously and want wholeheartedly for my students to have music as a part of their life, not just a part of their day. I love to laugh and have fun but I will definitely expect my students to practice and complete any homework I assign and be prepared for the following lesson. Simply stated, music is fun and the love of my life, but if I still practice, you will as well. Otherwise, I always believe in teaching songs my students are interested in and will expand their musical skills. My experience as a public school teacher had enhanced my sense of finding individual needs of every student. Therefore, I always differentiate lessons to suit my students interest while teaching them the foundations every musician needs in order to be successful. My specialty is teaching a variety of instruments. I play drums, guitar, bass, piano, and sing as well. So, if one instrument is not for you, I can teach you something different without a problem. Long story short, friends, you are in good hands.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Full Service music room: Keyboard, Full drum kit, Electric Guitar with 30 watts Amp and Microphone/ vocal monitor.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can bring a 76 key Yahama YPG-235 Keyboard for your household to use for lessons for a small monthly rental fee. I have an Epiphone Electric Guitar with 30w amplifier. Will also bring microphone and monitor for vocal lessons.

*** Specialties ***
I have taught mostly Rock, Blues, and Classical genres for Piano, Guitar, Drums. Vocally, I specialize in R&B, Soul, Motown, Broadway, Pop, Top 100 and alternative/Hard Rock. I will adapt to your needs.

We LOVE Susanna!
My son decided to play the viola, out of the blue (not for school, just for his own sake), so we went to TakeLessons to find him a teacher.
Susanna is so patient, and supportive. He has steadily increased his knowledge and abilities with her guidance.
My son always finishes his lesson and says, that was a really good lesson! Music to my mama ears!
We highly recommend Susanna!

With me, I like to make sure that the students are going at their own pace and have more of a say so in what they want to do for their goals. Whether it be a classical song they love or learning a hip hop song from the radio, in order to make the experience personal to them I want the student to first identify what they want and use it as a goal to keep lessons productive and fun.

About Leanne
I am a classically trained violinist and performer. I have my own business where I also play Hip Hop, RnB, Jazz, and other genres for events such as parties and weddings. I am currently a junior Music Performance Major at Hampton University but I am originally from Atlanta, GA and I always come home for the summer. I love teaching and spreading the love of music❤️

INSTRUMENTAL INSTRUCTION FOR THE BEGINNING MUSICIAN
Music instruction tailored for the individual student

Does your student love music and want to learn to play the violin? I can help them. My professional career encompasses more than 35 years of elementary level music instruction. I have successfully launched hundreds of students into a growing love of music and a working knowledge of the fundamentals of music and instrumental technique.

Learning music should be fun. I will develop a curriculum that matches desires, your child's desires, goals and individual learning style. And we will have fun along the way.

Contact me today to get your child started on the road to musical success.

Gary Halverson

About Gary
I have been serving the young people of my community for the last 36+ years as an elementary school music teacher. I graduated from Cal State University Fullerton with a BA in Music Education and a K-12 teaching credential in music. I have taught a wide range of music classes including general music, choir, piano, orchestra and band. My classroom experience includes early childhood (K-5th grade), english learners and special needs students.

I enjoy working with students who have had limited musical knowledge or experience. I love bringing them to a level of proficiency where they can be confident performers on their chosen instrument. Some of my students have continued their music education through college and others have brought their love of music into their careers as adults.

I realize that I not only teach music, but I teach ind
ividuals. So I tailor and fit my music instruction to the unique aptitudes and needs of each child. I want to communicate the fun of creating music as well as the technical aspects of playing an instrument. You can expect your student to gain a solid foundation in the fundamentals of music and instrumental technique. I offer private instruction for students who wish to learn the trombone or the violin. I also advise and assist parents in choosing a serviceable instrument for their student to rent or own. This has been a real help to several parents and families over the years. Contact me for more information. I’d love to be of help.

Mr. Gary has been teaching our son trombone for a few months now and we have been delighted with his teaching.
Mr. Gary is very patient with our son, and has ignited a real love of the instrument and given our son confidence. He never gets short and is always calm and encouraging, even when our son is not into it at all.
He teaches the fundamentals of breath, playing musically and how to take care of the instrument.
Mr. Gary is always encouraging and positive, and that helps to encourage a love for the music and instrument. Our son has definitely taken to the trombone and a lot of that is due to Mr. Gary's great teaching.

Hello! I recently graduated in 2014 from Baylor University with a Cello Performance degree. I currently teach elementary orchestra (4th & 5th grade) in Dallas ISD. As well as teaching, I currently perform with the New TX Symphony Orchestra in Dallas and in my church orchestra on viola and cello.

We will learn a variety of pieces ranging from classical to contemporary/pop music while learning the techniques to play each string instrument! Can anyone say "Baby Shark" and "Despacito" fast enough? And I focus on music theory ---basic note and rhythm reading & writing and recognizing musical symbols.

I am also bilingual in Spanish ---fluent in reading/writing and basic in conversation (although I am continuously learning & improving my language skills!)
