Music Lessons in Jacksonville, FL

Throughout its history, Jacksonville has been a hub of music. Starting in the 1930s, the Ritz Theater played host to legends like Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong; even Ray Charles started his career playing piano there. 1950s teen idol Pat Boone also hailed from Jacksonville, and southern rock was basically defined by the Jacksonville music scene, with talent like the Allman Brothers Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd and 38 Special.

With such a rich heritage, Jacksonville continues to draw and create talented musicians, including many professional teachers. Through our certification process, we find qualified instructors experienced in both teaching and performing. We have guitar instructors skilled in classical, flamenco, rock and bass guitar. If you are thinking of a recording career, we have lessons in music recording, performing and songwriting. Looking for classic music instruction? We have lessons in music theory, piano and organ. And because Jacksonville attracts all types of performance, not just musical, our Jacksonville music lessons list also includes performance and acting lessons.

At TakeLessons, we want you to reach your musical potential, no matter your age or experience. We will customize lessons to your personal goals.

About Raymond (Remi)

I completed musical studies at the Conservatory of Music of San Juan, Puerto Rico and graduated MAGNA CUM LAUDE, with Majors in Musical Education and as a Performing Artist.
I am a qualified bilingual Music Instructor.
I have performed as a guitarist with several orchestras, musical groups, bands and as classical guitar soloist I have given numerous recitals and concerts.
I have worked as a Music Educator at the Social & Pedagogic Academic Institutes teaching pedagogic & didactic principles to teachers and at the same time I have been teaching classical and popular guitar at all levels and
ages at several other music schools.
I wrote a guitar method "MELODIC GUITAR" for beginners from 7 years of age and up, and this method has been translated from Papiamentu into the English and Spanish languages.
Although my music background is classical, I play and teach popular music, which I love.
Just to mention a few guitarists who appeal to me: Carlos Santana, George Benson, Paco de Lucia, Julian Bream.
I also teach electrical and acoustic guitar, bass-guitar, piano/keyboard, ukulele, Venezuelan & PR cuatro, songwriting and music theory.
Music is an International language; a way to express inner feelings!
And Teaching it, is my passion!

Remi is very patient and motivating. He has a very well trained eye to catch subtle mistakes and correct them before they become a habit. He makes learning an instrument seem so easy!

My 10 year old son has been taking piano lessons with Raymond for nearly a year. He's steadily learning from Raymond's patient, encouraging, methodical teaching style. Raymond was able to note when my son was not reading the music.and took the necessary steps to slow him down and teach him properly. I really appreciate Raymond's pedagogical insights. Because of his knowledge of the learning process and his lifetime experience of making music, Raymond is the best piano teacher we've encountered!

Sadie is a wonderful instructor! I love math but algebra 2 is my worst enemy, so if I don't get something right away, she's very patient and thorough in explaining what she's teaching me. Her cheerful nature and positive reinforcement are definitely a boost so that I have confidence to learn and continue!

Sadie is such a talented teacher. She knows the right ways to help make you more comfortable with your voice and will help you reach your vocal goals! She has helped me personally learn to control my higher pitches. Also the comment below is from me. Its from a movie. I wasn't going to put that as the review. I was joking. However, my cat jumped on my keyboard and of all the buttons he could press he pressed enter! I just want anyone reading this to know that Sadie is an AWESOME teacher! Also very well priced!

Donnell E.

Jacksonville, FL

About Donnell

Hello,
I've been attached to music throughout my entire, though short, life. I initially started my journey on percussive instruments and eventually took interest in guitars (mainly Bass). From that point I went off to college at Edward Waters to receive my Bachelor's in Music Performance. I grew acquainted with brass instruments as well as some classical piano. Overall, my ability to teach and see others develop in music has become my passion, knowing that my performance days won't last forever.
