Classical piano is mostly based on music composed in previous periods. However, it can include exercises that ate modern as well as some modern music such as Florida Reflections.
I am experienced (3 years) in home school tutoring. I mostly work with Florida Virtual School students. I overlook their tests and assignments, and help them with preparations for Discussion Based Assessmemts (DBA). I also help parents with required annual evaluations and how to sign up with home education department. 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 them interested in learning and have fun; I also use self-control skills to teach how to avoid distractions and I show how to use different focusing strategies. I use positive mind set skills to teach how to use failures as learning opportunities.
I have Masters in Education (2018) with specialization in English, Curricul
um and Education; and Masters in Arts (2012) in Teaching English to speakers of other languages, and Bachelors in Music Education (2010), both from Florida Atlantic University, as well as a degree in violin performance from Chicago. I studied piano in Chicago 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 have taught music for over 24 years using the traditional and Suzuki methods. I am fan of the Essential Elements method and I Can Read Music book 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 Fundamentals of Piano Theory (9 levels) combined with Master Theory (6 levels) books.
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 the Gold Coast Youth Orchestra and my piano students participate in Pompano Beach Piano 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 and reading music. 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 and Fundamentals of Piano Theory books for younger ages, Alfred's music flash cards to support learning notes and musical terminology, and of course the fun part performance.
Besides Essential Elements for strings I also use String Tunes and I Can Read Music to add more fun to the lessons as well as support reading music during the lesson. 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 need to have their books and assigned material ready for tutoring. Instrumental students needs to have their music books, flashcards & 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 always bring my violin with me. I also ask that the room where the lesson takes place 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
I'm sorry, I cannot handle this Instructor for my children. She wasn't me but she's not quite the people person I expected. Her personality is not a good match for a high school tutor. Unfortunately her English is not good enough. Her accent is entirely too strong. Also she does not know enough Geometry to help my kids.

Ilona is a wonderful teacher. She really tunes in to your level and has a vast knowledge of musical repertoire making lessons very exciting. Anyone lucky enough to get Ilona is going to be star!!she is patient and responsive to questions and a very interesting and fun gal
I have been teaching for more then 20 years and my main goal is to develop deep love and appreciation for music.
Hi ! My name is Daniela and I can't wait to meet you! I have been teaching piano and theory since 1994 and have loved helping my students discover the beautiful world of music. Seeing my students grow into well rounded and educated people that love art, are able to recognize different styles of music, express their feelings and emotions on this wonderful instrument makes me really happy. My students range from people who simply want to learn how to play proficiently as a hobby to students who are considering making music their future career. I strongly believe that a chance to go on a big stage and play on a great Steinway piano in front of people, makes a big difference in children's lives: teaches them self control, gives them great sense of accomplishment and satisfaction. Taking part in festivals and piano competitions helps
with building high self esteem even more. I look forward to helping you and your children to reach your goals!
Daniela is wonderful and our lessons are always fun. She lets me play pieces that I enjoy plus introduces me to new music that she believes I will also enjoy. She allows me to play freely but will correct my mistakes (wrong fingering :). But this only make me a better player and learning a new piece easier. As an adult learner I cannot say enough good things about her and her style. I really enjoy my lessons with her and I highly recommend her.

Daniela is obviously a skilled piano teacher. She connects well with my 8 year old son, and I am continually surprised by all of the details that she is able to perceive over skype- every finger placement, gesture, etc. She is careful, thorough, and kind. We are thankful to have found her.
classic with a touch of JAZZ IS REFLECTION of my long-standing interest in keeping my music students interested.

A few years ago, I moved from Ohio to Florida and was concerned about finding a new piano teacher. To my disappointment, after trying two teachers, I was still left looking for a better one. That's when I had the pleasure of meeting Lana. Lana has reinforced my knowledge of music theory, challenged my technical skills, and most importantly improved my overall ability to play. Through Lana's various teaching techniques and exercises, I have never played better and or had more enthusiasm to keep learning!
June 25, 2019
I have been taking online lessons with Ms. Lana for many years. I absolutely love it! Lana is an awesome teacher. She is very knowledgeable, professional, patient, fun, friendly and is a great piano player. It's so much easier for me to take lessons online as I am a working mom. She has helped me to read notes very well. I would definitely recommend Lana to anyone. I always get compliments when I play the piano. Lana is also now teaching my son and he absolutely loves it! He has learned how to play the piano and read notes in no time and everyone absolutely adores how he plays the piano!
I have been teaching music for over 5 years and I love working with beginning and intermediate piano players and horn players of all levels. I realize that each student is unique and always approach individual lessons with my student's particular goals in mind. I have a basic curriculum that I use in order to build a solid musical foundation for my students, but I am open to working on whatever kind of music or repertoire that they may enjoy. It is always exciting to me when a student learns a new skill that helps them in their musical expression or achieves a goal (such as playing a song they really enjoy) that gives them a little extra fulfillment in life.
I am a freelance horn player with a passion for teaching both horn and piano. I have a Bachelor's of Music from The University of Arizona and a Master's of Music from California State University Long Beach.
I have been teaching privately and in group settings for over 5 years and really enjoy getting to pass on the knowledge and musicianship that I have received from my teachers on to the next generation.
I teach using a base curriculum but also love to work on pieces that students want to play outside of their main course.
When you come into my music studio, we keep things simple, enjoyable and definitely a lot of fun (Isn't that some of the reason you signed up for the lesson anyway, right!?)
I have been in public music education for 10 years and a musician for a lot longer. I will teach not only the music notes but how to express your self through "sound exploration".
I get exited just talking about it!
I graduated from Tennessee State University with a Bachelors of Music, concentration music education. I receive my Masters of Education and Education Specialist degree from Lincoln Memorial University. I have spent the past 10 years teaching instrumental and vocal music in middle and elementary public school. Alongside music education, I studied saxophone under professional saxophonist, Jimmy Bowland. I have had the opportunity to travel aboard, performing with the "Nashville Aces" at the Umbria Jazz Festival in Umbria, Italy in 2007 and even meet the great Sonny Rollins.
From 2008 to 2010 I performed saxophone within the stage band of "Alvin Moore Entertainment" stage production company and which produced recorded stage play, "A Mother's Prayer" featuring Johnny Gill, Robin Givens, Shirley Murdock and Jermaine Crawford which h
as aired numerous times on B.E.T. as well as stages in and around the southeast.
Since 2013 I have been performing within the funk band, "Function with a C", playing various weddings, corporate gathering and other social events and have recorded our band album, "F6" in 2016. Currently I am working on my album entitled "Sacred Spaces" and building recording studio.
Currently I am band leader and lead Saxophonist within the instrumental group "Sacred Spaces"...returning to the place that bring you back to life" and building my own recording studio.
Music is Life.. I find music not only something to be played and enjoyed, but a means to open my "hearing" to people and places. I believe everything makes music, however not everyone hears it. It is through this medium, that one "Hears" better. I have also learned that when I learn or study music, I am also learn and study life. As a teacher, I like to share these "life music" nuggets with my students when they pop during lesson. While I do not consider my self a counselor or life coach, I believe that good teachers care not only teach the subject but also tie it in to the bigger picture.
My desire is that all student i teach learn, grow and be inspired by music. Music has the power to inspire creativity, empower confidence, breaking down barriers and building connections. As a musician and music instructor, my hope is that any student I teach would be able to experience all of these qualities.

My students can expect to improve week to week in their piano or math classes. My goal is not just to teach you how to play piano or to do math. I would like to guide you through the journey of learning and help you explore all the interesting things in music and math.

ills and pursue classical excellence. I can also help students to prepare for exams and competition.

"Vyacheslav, or Slava for those who are fortunate and privileged enough to be his acquaintance, is perhaps one of the most compassionate, ingenious, and ma
sterful musician who has an immense gift of music with a rich and thorough tradition as his educational upbringing. Anyone who takes a lesson with him should consider oneself lucky. His mastery of technical ability and teaching skills, as well as his ability to invoke the entire orchestra out of the piano, is second to none."
"Melanie was an awesome instructor, listens very well and accommodates to all your needs. Would highly recommend!"
"Tamari taught lessons to two of my daughters. She was patient with them and helped them learn both theory and performance. The recitals were also enjoya
ble and rewarding. I would recommend Tamari for lessons."
"I wanted to find someone to teach me classical piano technique. That would be 'serious' technique. I count myself as fortunate to have gotten Roxanna as
an instructor. I feel that I am being properly guided by someone who has to have had breadth of experience to know and anticipate what things should be taught in what order. My mom is a life long amateur pianist and she agrees that I have found a great teacher !"
"Mr Lo Is great and he has great technique.
He spent time working with my daughter hand position.
My daughter likes taking lesson with him."
"She is a skillful pianist and a talented musician. Video and sound quality over her side is well equipped for the online lessons."
"Amazing piano teacher!!! Patience of a saint!"
"Lynne Nofi taught me piano for several years when I was in middle and high school, and I’m very grateful for what an excellent job she did in instructing
me in piano. I was able to complete all 6 levels of NYSSMA, and after graduating high school I began teaching lessons myself using the knowledge of theory and technique I gained through lessons with Lynne. She is not only a great teacher but also a wonderful, kind, caring person. I always looked forward to our lessons together and her positive, caring instruction. I recommend her 100/100!"
"Our 7 yo daughter have had Niki as her piano teacher for the last 2 years. It has been a great experience. Our daughter looks forward to every class. Moti
vation to practice on a daily basis is always a challenge at this young age, but Niki has instilled in our daughter a passion for piano. I love to hear my daughter practice her songs every day and go to her classes well prepared and motivated. This is something achieved only by an excellent teacher!
I am happy to give Niki my strongest recommendations!"
