Joel J. Tampa, FL

About Joel

Hi! I have been teaching for over seven years and am no stranger to the stage. While majoring in music performance at the University of West Georgia, I performed with jazz ensembles, guitar quartets, and percussion ensembles. I also performed many solo classical guitar recitals. The only thing I love more than performing, is teaching and sharing music. *** Lesson Details *** My lessons generally include three parts with content depending on your level of experience: technique, repertoire, and theory. I am an enthusiastic although laid back teacher, however I do push my students in order for them to realize themselves as a musician. I like to have fun with lessons because music is fun and I enjoy it. I hope you do too! Literature used in lessons: New Dimensions in Classical ...

Joel is the nicest guitar teacher ever! During the first lesson he evaluated where I am as a musician and since then he has kept me challenged and helped my improve my skills in just a couple lessons. He's super patient and flexible and makes sure to emphasize proper technique, which is exactly what I was looking for in a teacher.

Hallie C. Tampa, FL

About Hallie

Have you always wanted to learn how to play an instrument, but never knew where to begin? I can help you learn your instrument, and learn how to play the music that you love whether it be flute, piccolo, violin, viola, or cello. I can help you enjoy music. Having grown up in a musical family with my mother a professional violinist, I have been exposed to the joys of music since childhood. I learned how to play percussion and string instruments from when I was six years old, and later joined the high school band playing flute. I loved playing flute and piccolo so much that I decided to take this as my career and went to Interlochen Arts Academy where I excelled in my performance. I later went to Prague Conservatory and Czech Budweiss Conservatory and played with the Prague Film ...

I feel like my playing has progress so much further than when I was attempting to teach myself. As a shy adult beginner, Hallie's fantastic attitude makes is easier for me to learn as I don't feel as nervous as I normally would.

Adam G. Oldsmar, FL

About Adam

I started playing guitar at the age of 12, teaching myself before I moved on to taking professional lessons. At 15, I began performing in front of live audiences with a rock band, and loved every minute of it. Ever since then, I have been performing and recording, as well as writing/arranging music. I was privately tutored extensively in Music Theory, Harmony, Arrangement and Composition. I have played many stages over the years in various cover and original bands, from acoustic to rock, to blues, metal and southern rock. I feel that I can offer much from the viewpoint of a working musician in addition to your basic instrument lesson; from instrument set-up tips, to getting your own sound, to how to effectively use effects and performance tips. Personally, I enjoy rock and metal music ...

Week 4

It's only been week 4 and I'm startin to learn to play songs. As an adult learner I thought I would have much more difficulty but Adam has not only tailored the lessons to what I am interested in learning but is always watching and listening to how I play. He give instant feedback and helps me adjust on the fly. I couldn't have asked for a better instructor to tea h me to play guitar. Thanks Adam for the current and hopefully many future lessons.
