Matthew J.

Wellington, FL

For the past 15 years my goal as a teacher, beyond the foundational nuts and bolts, has been to broaden the student’s imagination and scope thus furthering their own musical expression and concepts of music. It is my responsibility as a teacher to guide students and help them carve out their own path and enjoy the process of finding their individual voice. My effectiveness as a teacher stems from my ability to be flexible and to help students find a direction for their musical journey.

About Matthew

*** Travel Equipment ***
I bring my Acoustic guitar. The student must have an instrument of their own.

*** Specialties **
I can take you to any level of guitar you wish. I've dedicated the last 20 years of my life to becoming the best musician I can be. I will share with you how to incorporate the guitar in to your everyday lives and make small amounts of practice, yield fast and rewarding results. I regularly use the Jazz Real Book, Mickey Baker books, and the Berkley Method books, as a starting place for adult students. I will often use the Suzuki method books, with children under th
e age of 10 . But ultimately whatever path you wish to take, I will be there to support you all along and offer constructive thoughts and opinions for growth and development.

I love teaching Classical guitar, Jazz finger style acoustic guitar, and electric. Honestly, I am very grateful to share what I know with others and enjoy having the pleasure to be of service.

Melody H.

West Palm Beach, FL

I like to use Fast Track by Hal Leonard Book 1 it is an easy book to learn from. You learn your notes on all 6. Why because it is important to read music just as it is to play the guitar. Learn your favorite songs. Learn strumming patterns. Strumming is hard so it takes a bit. And yes your FINGERS will be sore for a while but you will survive!!!!

About Melody

I started music at age 5. My parents were both professional musicians.My father was a professional jazz piano player and my mother a classical guitarist. So it is in the blood. I played a few instruments but my favorite guitar and piano. The bass is cool too. I went to Nassau Community College for Drama/Music I toured in theater groups and also was in a few bands while living in NY. I could not make up my mind so I did both. I love both ! I left NY to come down to So. Florida in 1991 due to my father's passing. Since I was new to the area I starting performing regular basis and became well k
nown in the music community.I also went on a song writing spree which was good! I was able to do dinner theater in between the music. I met these two guys now my friends and music teachers from going to the open mics. They encouraged me to go out and start teaching and do what I was supposed to do. How it happened ? I placed one small ad, got a call and from there it grew into over 80 students.I just was referred to everyone it was a chain reaction.
In between teaching I was also in a duo and made time for the touring, local gigs, etc....released 3 CD's.
I was very busy that I decided to open up my own facility to handle the flow of students. I had my business for 9 years. I decided to close it down.
I produced a lot of talent from there.songwriters with published songs, singers with contracts, bands like the guitarist that played in Hey Monday. Students that started with me at age 5 and stayed for years. A lot are off to college or done with school grown up sort of. When they bump into me and say hey Ms. Mel I'll never forget you teaching me music lessons or do you remember this or that or I loved that band class you did. You changed my whole life. I really appreciate it and I did make a difference in their lives.

*** Lesson Details ***
Practice yes that is the question... OK I am not mean and I am not too laid back but if you do not do what your supposed to do be prepared to work. If you do not understand it we will do it until you get it. Remember you bugged mom for the lessons and here you are so it is important that you practice. Cut down on video games and TV. I expect you to be ready to go when you get there. If you want to be a rock star
Little ones mom's I love when you sit in because I am teaching you as well. You will be helping your child practice during the week until the next lesson. For the guitar they will complain of hurting finger tips I cannot do anything about that it comes with guitar playing. Same for piano except the fingers will not hurt.
After 3 to 6 months for the older student I expect all 6 strings to be complete and chords and strumming on guitar and learning songs of your choice.
Piano - Sight Reading and being able to play with 2 hands in the key of "C" with ease.
this will happen with practice, And learning songs of your choice.
Small ones as much time as they need depends upon how long it takes for them to learn it and how much time mom can help practice.
I do make it fun and any student should not feel like they have to get sick before they go to their lesson.

Vocal Training · In home
When we realized that our daughter Veronica enjoyed singing and showed keen interest in music, we decided to put her through some formal training in vocals. One of our friends referred us to Ms. Denise.

Ms. Denise is an excellent teacher. She taught our daughter vocals for almost two years. Our daughter had the most wonderful time with her. She focuses on strong fundamentals, instills confidence in students and makes the whole experience enjoyable.

I have learned Broadway, pop tunes, and other show tunes working with her over the past two years. She is very patient and direct... no time wasted going over the songs. These arrangements were incorporated into my guitar repertoire and are still active. I highly recommend Denise from the beginner to the performer. She also astounded a Dixieland group by sight reading a ragtime piece at tempo... excellent musician...

Doyle B.

Hobe Sound, FL

I have been teaching guitar for 6 years. I have an earned Masters degree in music and enjoy teaching students of all ages. I am happily married with 5 children at home--4 of them are musicians as well (the youngest is 4).. Students will quickly learn not only the basics of music theory, but will be playing songs as early as their first lesson. It is extremely rewarding watching students have fun, excel, and fall in love with making music. I presently teach music at 3 schools (1 college) and only have a few lessons slots available. I look forward to working with you.
