Jill is a wonderful teacher. She is patient and creative in teaching, good at communicating her musical ideas with children. My son progressed a lot under her instruction. We really hate to say goodbye to her because we have to leave America. Her classes are part of our best memories here.

Eric L. Oviedo, FL

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, ...

I've had a great experience as Eric's student. He is highly knowledgeable as a guitar teacher and I have loved learning classical technique from him. And I'm kind of picky, since I already have a degree in music and am also a music teacher! He has really helped me broaden my skills as a guitarist and I can highly recommend him as a teacher for all kinds of guitar styles.

Eric is a very good teacher. I have no experience in music at all and his instruction offered a nice mix of basic music knowledge and uke specific teaching. In a short time he showed me a variety of playing techniques for the uke that gives me a lot to strive for while offering exercises and instruction for me to work on that will help me steadily improve.

I got a guitar at Christmas along with a book on how to play. In just two lessons I have learned so much from Damien that I never got out of the book. He is a good teacher and has a great personality.

Damien's love of music fortifies his abilities to share what is possible in his students' achievements; me included! For over a year I have pursued learning banjo, which Damien's encouragement through patient teaching, has fulfilled my goal of being comfortable with this difficult instrument. Thank you, Damien, for believing anyone can try to learn something new, even at seventy-two!
Nicholas M. Winter Park, FL

I am proficient, and can teach all styles an most techniques on the electric bass guitar.

Styles include Rock, Pop, Rhythm & Blues, Jazz, Latin and Caribbean styles, African styles, and more!

Techniques include fingerstyle/fingerfunk, slap, palm muting, and harmonics.

About Nicholas

I provide instruction, assistance, and tutoring to all levels of Electric Bass Guitar and Music Theory. I can also teach entry level guitar as well. I believe that that essence of music education should be fun, entertaining, and thought provoking, while at the same time providing a positive and charming atmosphere for the student to learn in, which invokes strong and efficient learning ability. Discussion and questions are always welcome, and I always work at the pace of the student, It's my job as a teacher to have the tools to help enhance and nurture a student's musical ability in their chosen area of interest(s), not oppress a concrete template method for all students without accommodation to learning patterns or tendencies of the student. My lessons are set up to ...

Very knowledgeable and explains material in very easy ways to understand and remember. Definitely a god teacher.
William O. Orlando, FL

I have been playing bass for 7 years. I have taught many people with little to no experience, and many of them now know how to sight read bass charts, how to improvise a good bass solo, how to play all chords and scales, how to write their own song, and how to play over music without knowing the key.

However, my main goal is not to teach these technical skills. My main goal is to teach how to express oneself with music; the technical skills come after.

About William

Hi! My name is William, and I am a computer science major at Valencia College with an extremely diverse skillset. I focus on teaching underlying concepts in order to promote deep understanding, rather than memorization. I strive not only to provide help with an immediate problem but also to help gain more general skills that can be applied in many contexts. I love to tutor and teach people, and I really love helping people get better at learning. I have been tutoring a wide variety of subjects for about 4 years, and I have lots of experience helping people tackle difficult concepts, and, perhaps more importantly, helping people find joy in subjects that they previously disliked. I can't wait to start learning with you!

William is nothing short of the only tangible reason I am able to program competently. I certainly wouldn't call myself the easiest of students, yet Will was able to drag me smoothly through my introductory programming course. He is an excellent tutor; not only for his in depth and widely encompassing field of knowledge, but also for his willingness to go over material over and over again, in as many different ways as possible, until you've truly learned. I would recommend him to my friends, neighbors and even professional programmers just to make sure they know what they're doing.

I went into my Intro to C class at UCF with very little enthusiasm towards learning the subject as well as horrible studying habits and a tendency to extreme procrastination. Before Will started tutoring me I had no hope, or care for that matter, to pass my class, but Will was actually able to get me enthusiastic about the material. Will is extremely knowledgeable on a great deal of subjects and is able to convey complex materials in an almost story like context making difficult subjects both interesting and very comprehensive. Certainly the best tutor I have ever had, would recommend to all who have difficulty in both programming and mathematics fields, with him you will want to learn.
