Jill H.

Winter Springs, FL

About Jill

Jill holds a Bachelor's degree in Music Education and has master's work in choral music. For many years she has taught private and group music lessons to all ages and many varying styles of singing and instrumental music. Her lessons are unlike the ones she remembers from childhood; Jill's lessons are full of creativity, fun and excitement. It is amazing how students improve with each lesson. Jill brings more than just technique to the studio, she strives to find the best in each student and then concentrates on improving each individual's strengths and then delves into ways to correct th
e weaknesses.

Since Jill is a vocal soloist, instrumentalist, accompanist and director, she knows what it takes to prepare and rehearse and therefore she makes it clear which concept the student will be working on during the lesson. With an instrumental and choral background, Jill brings music to life and then shares with the students how to keep music in their lives forever. Many students who had vocal problems have achieved vocal success after taking several lessons with Jill and learning to keep their voices healthy for the rest of their lives.

Jill has worked with children, teens and adults in many schools, churches and after school programs that she designed. Her success with students who are very young or students who come with disabilities or autistic spectrum diagnosis are moved by the music Jill creates. With the help of the ORFF-SCHULWERK certification, Jill has many ways of reaching children through the use of instruments, rhythm activities, games and other fun ways of learning. Breaking barriers is Jill's best asset, she will not quit until the student has an understanding of the instrument or his/her voice.

The young and the older adults find that taking lessons with Jill has brought them to a place of realizing their potential. Successful stories include pre-school age through students who are retired. The length of time one studies depends on the student's practice and diligence. Many students have started with Jill in preschool or elementary school and have continued through high school and college. Several college age students wanted to improve their singing or instrumental skills so goals were set and met through Jill's successful teaching ability.

Many of Jill's students have become better musicians and many have chosen music professions for their careers. Several students have won contests, auditioned for parts in musicals, started local bands and have become songwriters and performers after taking lessons with Jill.

"Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers, plans succeed. " (Proverbs 15:22) It is Jill's belief that with her teaching qualifications and past record of success with student achievement and great experience studying with wonderful advisers, teaching YOU or YOUR CHILD will be one of success!

*** Lesson Details ***
Jill's teaching technique is flexible. Some students require a stern and strict approach while others seem to work best with more creative license. Jill is open to each student's needs. When booking lessons with Jill, one will find that the first thing she will do is find out more about the student's needs and desires to succeed in their chosen instrument.

Because of her flexible approach, method books vary depending on the student's need to succeed. Sometimes young students will need to review several beginning methods until their reading skills are achieved. For the young students, Jill teaches theory and gives the young students time during the lesson to explore musical symbols and try their hands at improvisation, rhythms, manuscripts and creativity.

Some students may desire to learn to play "by ear" or through improvisational skills. Jill is very good with improv and her song writing skills are strong. When a student desires to write music, Jill is there to help with questions about time signatures, note values, key signatures and transpositions.

Taking lessons with Jill is a journey that those who have tried have not had regrets. Several parents and past students would be happy to tell you how their talents and gifts improved after working with Jill for a few months. After three months of working together, Jill will know how to pursue the student's musical career. After 6 months the student will be able to play complete songs and have a sense of basic music theory. The hope is for the student to be confident of their instrument's abilities.

Several of Jill's students have taken their skills, gifts and talents to the professional level. Students who have studied with Jill are professional music directors in high schools, middle schools, elementary schools, churches, soloists and some who are in school studying music as their major. Taking lessons with Jill will be something that will add value to the student's life forever because MUSIC is her life! Without music, the world would be a very dull place and individuals would be unhappy and depressed in every walk of life. Music brings out the beauty of creation and man's ability to skillfully play an instrument for pleasure or for one's occupation.

Chase G.

Altamonte Springs, FL

About Chase

Born in Atlanta, GA, I began performing vocally and on saxophone, at the young age of 7, and it has taken me all over the world. I discovered a joy for teaching music through creative and fun methods at Lee University in Cleveland, TN (2004-2008)

I currently live in the Orlando, FL area and am outgoing, funny, and optimistic. My experience, as a finalist on American Idol, in 2007 ignited a passion to not only perform but to teach. With over 8 years of private teaching experience, I understand that learning happens differently with everyone.

Whether you are just beginning or are wanting
to reach the next level in your musical career; I am here to help motivate you and give you the tools to reach your personal goals.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching method is laid back, friendly, educational and motivational.

In the first lesson I will get to know the student, their goals, personality, and learning style. This enables me to customize a plan that allows students to flourish and learn at an accelerated pace.

Whether a voice student is wanting to have more control, power, and extend their range; or just wanting to be more comfortable performing in public, with work and dedication, these are all obtainable goals that, amazingly, can be reached within the first 3 to 6 Months of Lessons.

I prefer to teach students not just through learning scales but through applying vocal principles to the songs and music that most interests them. Whatever their favorite style of music we will be learning to apply what is taught in lessons to the actual songs of their choosing, in any genre. This makes learning fun and helps to keep focus and interest alive.

Many of these same principles also apply to learning how to play the saxophone! In These lessons you can expect to learn how to read music, develop a solid tone and even improvise by ear!

All lesson plans are tailored to get the student making music as quickly as possible so lets get started!

*** Travel Equipment ***
pay for students music tracks and books

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in contemporary Vocals (similar to Speech Level) as well as Classical styles of voice such as Bel Canto. My strength is building curriculum based upon the students goals and abilities to enable them to perform the styles and Genres that they are passionate about. Whether It's teaching a student to just match pitch or helping a performer connect with a song to make it a more musical performance. I truly enjoy motivating and educating so that the students obtain the proper tools to accomplish goals.

I sang in chorus for almost two years when I was in high school. People always considered me an okay singer. Never thought to try private lessons. I've been playing guitar for 10 years. Most people consider me an excellent guitarist. About three months ago started playing more acoustic guitar songs with vocals but the vocals just weren't where I wanted them. So I decided to give voice lessons a shot.

Chase has been an excellent instructor. He quickly identified my major problem areas and gave me exercises to work on during my first lesson. I started doing the exercises on my commute to work a few days a week. Now I'm only three lessons in and my singing abilities have improved dramatically. When I sing for my friends they are blown away at the progress I've made.

I wish I would have started lessons years ago when I was in the chorus!

Jesse W.

Sanford, FL

About Jesse

Hi, My name is Jesse. I discovered my passion in music when I was 15 and saw another student playing guitar in school. Ever since I received my first guitar at age 16, I was hooked. Not a day went by that I didn't pick up the instrument and pour my energy and soul into my playing.

I specialize in teaching students how to unleash their creativity while also following a disciplined learning method. Music is meant to be fun, creative, and expressive, and I help students find this passion. After discovering their passion, practice and honing their skills will lead to more professional ventures
and possibly a career!

Specialties: Guitar, Leads, Rhythms, Fingerpicking, Solos, Improvisation, Recording, Songwriting.

I make sure my students have a wonderful time and are excited to want to keep playing and not put their instrument down.

Sharon O.

Maitland, FL

About Sharon

Sharon O. has a deep passion for music. She is a music educator and composer who believes music can empower you. After receiving her Bachelors of Music and Certificate of Music Therapy, she devoted more than 35 years training young musicians and using music as a source of healing with those in need. She has been a spiritual performer of both voice and piano and continues to be very committed to sharing the benefits of music with others.

Here are a few key points that describe her music ideology and piano teaching method and why it has proven to be successful:

People like to play music
that they know and can relate to and to share music with others. They enjoy playing familiar melodies. Over the past few years, she has written and arranged hundreds of songs that are playable and accessible – and has watched her students' motivation level increase in leaps and bounds! There is rarely a struggle to practice at home, because the students enjoy practicing so much!

No individual fits into one learning slot. Generally, students have a mixture of learning styles and needs and Ms. O. has developed a method which is flexible and tailor-made to every student's needs.

Each student collects their favorite songs to play and makes their own songbooks, their love of piano grows rapidly while they develop their music reading and technical skills. Ultimately,Ms. O. has seen that most students start to become more curious and willing to learn and venture into new music that they do not necessarily recognize as time goes on.

Ms. O. believes that every individual can feel successful at the piano and when they study with her they will enjoy themselves and become more creative human beings.

Regarding young children....It is never too early to instill the gift of music ….early learning sets the groundwork for how children will view music for the rest of their lives!

Lessons should always be fun and engaging .

Ms. O. loves sharing music with others and develops as very warm rapport from the onset!
