Andrew G. Dunedin, FL

About Andrew

I have been teaching students of all ages for 17 years. My principle instrument is Trumpet, but I teach multiple instruments. I received my BS in music from Radford University in 2000. I moved to Miami in 2001 to attend school and perform with artists such as Arturo Sandoval, Micheal Brecker, David Sandborn, Diana Krall, as well as numerous corporate bands in the Miami area playing for such people as Donald Trump and opening up for Lionel Richie and Elton John. Through out my entire educational and professional career I have helped many students reach their personal and professional goals. As a teacher I understand the importance of patience and persistence, I utilize positive reinforcement and encouragement. Music is meant to be fun so therefore I make the lesson FUN! My teaching ...

Matthew K. Clearwater, FL

About Matthew

Cheers. My name is Matthew. It's a pleasure to meet you. I play guitar, bass, drums and percussion all on a professional, weekly-gigging level. I would describe my style as motivating, tactful, patient, and both traditional and up-to-date / modern. I teach all styles, but I most enjoy transitioning North American rock musicians into the world of jazz, and especially SALSA / Latin, believe it or not! I have a Bachelors in Psychology (University of Central Florida), have toured Japan with my band, and I also release solo music. I have recorded in famous Tokyo studios and actually ended up living in the Land of the Rising Sun for 4 years! I am Spanish, Japanese, and Portuguese speaking as well (English as my native language), having visited Colombia, Bali (Indonesia), Hong Kong, Japan, and ...

Matthew is a laid back instructor who really knows what he is teaching. I am learning Jazz on the bass and I enjoy it very much. In just a short time i learned more with him than I did with my previous instructor . Would recommend him to anyone wanting to learn jazz.

Best instructor I had so far.

Matt definitely knows his stuff. I had 4 classes with him and I'm shocked at the things I've learn with him. Great schedule flexibility and makes you feel comfortable from the time you meet him. Has a great and spacious place to teach compared to other I had. Hes willing to help anytime with questions. I decided to keep him as instructor for now on. Thanks!

I think he was to scared to teach my daughter. I also think he needs a better place to teach, and he needs to make the classes more fun for kids. Our first lesson wasn't a good experience.

I've been teaching professionally for over ten years and have taught over 200 students of all ages and backgrounds how to play. I've played mostly in rock bands but have also done Classical, Jazz, and Country projects.

I use a wide variety of methods from strict classical methods (such as Noad or Parkening) to simply teaching chords and "tabbing out" their favorite songs. However, I do make sure ...

Great instructor overall

Marty was a great instructor to me. Taught me a lot in the 4 lessons I had with him. Very professional and knowledgable in Bass. Unfortunately because my schedule changing I could not keep him as an instructor. My only gripe would be that his studio room gets a little cramped and my guitar sometimes would hit things. Other than that. I would definitely recommend him.

Randall makes sure that you don't persist with any bad habits that will prevent you from learning how to play the instrument properly. He also gives you simple analogies why some things need to be done a certain way...and as a side benefit, you will learn about music history as it relates to what you are doing.

When you first meet Tony you sense immediately his passion and love for music; this comes through in his teaching style and attitude. Our 2 daughters (ages 13 and 11) have been taking lessons from Tony for about 3 months and we are definitely seeing improvements in their abilities. He has a knack for challenging them without them really knowing that's what he's doing--he pushes (gently) on them to reach their potential. Our girls enjoy taking lessons from Tony and look forward to seeing him each week, they practice without being asked (most days) and look forward to learning more interesting and challenging music. I would absolutely recommend Tony as an instructor for children or adults.

Tony has been teaching my 8 year old grand-daughter, Nevea, for about 6 months. Tony knows how to effectively teach younger children and has the patience needed to know the correct learning pace that each student can deal with. Nevea loves it when Tony will occasionally accompany her with the guitar. I sit in on most of the lessons and enjoy listening to the interaction between teacher and student.
I would recommend Tony as a teacher for students of any age.

Tony is great! He helped expand my range and over come the enormous amount of stage fright I battled for years in just a small amount of time. His lessons helped establish my music on a more professional level and broadened my picture of the music industry. I wouldn't recommend anybody else! He is very motivating and inspirational, and you will definitely grow through his lessons.

5 Easy Songs for Kids to Play On Guitar

That first guitar lesson is critical for establishing a love of playing in our students, but most of the time teachers approach the instrument as though we need to prepare the student for the worst. "It will be difficult... You have to put in a lot of practice... Your fingers will hurt, etc." These things only serve to discourage the student and the parent, who
5 Contemporary Songs for the Piano, Guitar, and Voice
Practicing any song on the piano can be fun at first, but after a while playing the same songs by yourself can be a bit boring. Why not find some songs for the piano, guitar, and voice? You can perform for others in a talent show or an open mic night, or just for yourselves and have a good jam session!
