Frixos P.

Miami, FL

About Frixos

Frixos states that his love for music probably started before he was born. “I’m pretty sure the Motown sounds my mother loved to listen and move to permeated to me through her.” Add to that his exposure to different ethnic sounds like Greek (his origins) folklore and contemporary music, Portuguese Fado (his birthplace and early childhood), Italian Bel Canto and modern pop, American Jazz, Afro, etc. and it’s easy to see how music helped shape Frixos’ passion. Each had an influence on him, “as they were incessantly played by my parents,” Frixos adds. “In fact it would be safe to say that music w
as the predominant form of entertainment at home."

By the age of seven, Frixos started to frequent a music school where he was introduced to percussion instruments. Soon after, he took on classical guitar based on the UK Royal Academy of Music curriculum. A couple of years later in 1998, Frixos found his true calling … music composition, Jazz and the Saxophone. Frixos’ purple tenor sax goes everywhere he goes!

“Part of my love for the Saxophone is rooted in this instrument’s versatility for improvisation.” Moving into music composition seemed a natural course for Frixos to follow, culminating in his graduation in 2013 with a University of Florida Music Composition BA from The New World School of the Arts in Miami.

“I was fortunate to be selected to play in various collegiate and other Jazz bands and be mentored by great jazz performers and educators.” Among them was Ed Calle, twice nominated for the Latin Grammy Award; Joe Donato, one of the most active and innovative musicians working in the field of jazz who has performed with many of the greats including Dizzy Gillespie, Art Blakey, Carmen McRae, Nina Simone, Jack Jones, and Arturo Sandoval; Rafael Valencia where “I was honored to play for his Latin Jazz Big Band” says Frixos; the wonderful pianist Jim Gasior who has played with Ed Calle, Wendy Pedersen, Fernando Ulibarri and Aaron Lebos; the published and well decorated guitarist Dr. Mike Di Liddo, to name a few.

Of course there were lesser known people that had a profound influence on Frixos for which he makes it a point to say that he is “eternally grateful”. He adds, “My passion for composing was further affirmed thanks to Dr. Susan Epstein Garcia who showed me that there’s no limit to musical expression.” Dr. Ferdinando De Sena brought Frixos another dimension through his teachings of electronic music.

Frixos seeks to create variety in his compositions, by using worldly rhythms and sounds expressed through a multitude of instrumental expressions to create his own unique contemporary sound. “I look for connections between different music genres, from classical, rock, pop, funk, reggae, fusion, jazz etc. These connections are what I bring to my music” continues Frixos.

In October 2007 Frixos released his first CD titled “Cause Frixion” which was dedicated to fund-raising for The Epilepsy Foundation of Florida. This album included a tune he wrote earlier that year called “Freedom”. Other works have been published more recently on the internet, namely cdbaby, iTunes etc. and are played on internet radio stations.

Frixos continues to perform gigs with different musicians and bands in venues around the Miami and Ft. Lauderdale area, including recording sessions for Fourth Dimension and others. He plays multiple instruments including alto, soprano and tenor sax, flute and keyboards. His performances comprise events at the renowned Van Dyke Café on Lincoln Road; Avenue D; Crescendo Jazz and Blues Lounge; Churchill’s Pub, a bastion for local musicians; Tobacco Road, the oldest music bar in Miami; Blue Jean Blues in Ft. Lauderdale where Al Kanovsky for The South Florida Jazz Scene wrote on October 15 2012, “They continued, raucously on, with everybody, musicians and audience having fun. A young man walked in, sax case in hand. Joe (Donato) invited him up to jam. What can I say. His name is Frixos, (yes it's right) and this kid can blow.”

Saxophone · In studio
Frixos is a first class saxophone player and a spectacular teacher. He impresses me with his patience and enthusiasm. He has had so much training playing saxophone with some of the best professional players in South Florida! His skills will blow you out of the water and his teaching methods are phenomenal. Apart from that, he is a natural people person, and really cares about his students. He is really a one-of-a-kind person and teacher, and it goes without saying that I recommend him.

I worked as an AmeriCorps member with City Year at Homestead Senior High, where I work in a 9th grade Algebra 1 class as well as after-school tutoring for grades 9-12 in various subjects. I have had experience with students of all ages. I love spending time with students and helping them to learn new things. The subjects I have experience in includes writing, reading comprehension, math, (up to college level pre-calculus/trigonometry), life sciences, and social sciences, and history. I also give beginning to intermediate piano lessons for the past three years.


Previously, I volunteered as a mentor and tutor at an elementary school, where I assisted students with homework, as well as reading and math skills. I volunteered as a classroom assistant in an ESOL class at a high school where I helped students better their English oral and writing skills, as well as tutoring for any class where they needed help understanding the subject such as history, English, and biology. I also worked in a 10th grade biology class where I assisted students with classwork and was able to create and teach lesson plans. I was a private tutor to college students assisting with research, paper planning, and proofreading as well as math up to trigonometry/pre-calculus, social studies, and biology. In addition, I have taken classes in a program where I was able to create lesson plans for life science classes and teach them to students in 5th grade science, 7th grade life science, and 10th grade biology classes. I also volunteered as a computer aide for the library adult services for 4 years, where I helped people with computer basics, the internet, and document creation. I am a very dependable and trustworthy person, and I love having fun with students.

Dillon S.

Miami, FL

About Dillon

I have been a band leader for 4 years in my church's youth group as well as a music teacher and college student. I have earned my Associate's degree in Music Education at MDC with a focus on jazz guitar and I have a fairly diverse knowledge of different genres of music (primarily worship/church music, rock, pop, and jazz). I have also played drums, bass, and sung in numerous bands throughout the years.

I am currently studying K-12 Art Education at FIU and am mostly experienced in portrait and still life drawing and painting in pencil, charcoal, India ink, acrylic and various other materials
.

I am hoping to improve my teaching skills through this platform and I firmly believe in learning from my students as much as they learn from me. I am laid-back and a kid at heart, and I find it important to teach with a sense of humor and to make lessons less of a tedious ritual (especially for younger kids) and more of an enjoyable hobby that they will want to spend time on and get better at.

(For the record, I'm also a huge geek. I love video games, superheroes, sci-fi, fantasy, board games, cartoons/anime, technology/science... If you're into something, feel free to talk to me about it!)
