About Benjamin
I discovered music sifting through my Dad's record collection and soon decided that I wanted to play guitar. As a teenager I began taking lessons and building confidence in my abilities. I played in different types of bands ranging from rock, country, blues, and jazz. After completing College in 2004, I realized music was not just going to be a hobby, but a career. At age 37, I have been teaching and playing guitar professionally for the last 13 years. I believe that anybody can learn to play as long as they are patient and understand that anything worthwhile takes time and sustained effort to achieve. You also need a good teacher who understands how to take you where you want to go musically. I have taught hundreds of different students of all ages and abilities. I have seen many of them grow musically and gain confidence in other
areas of their lives as a result. I aim to inspire every student to find their way to a rewarding life through music.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lesson plans are developed on an individual basis. I want you to learn the music that inspires your passion. If the guitar is new to you, the first lessons are devoted to basic playing skills and techniques. It is important to develop a strong understanding of music fundamentals to ensure that the student is attaining the skills they need to be a complete musician. I emphasize technique with drills designed to raise my students' skills evenly across a wide range of categories, like picking, fretting, scale patterns, chord shapes, rhythm training, and ear training. I have had success with many students using this approach and most are playing songs within a couple months. For the more serious student, music theory is an important tool to understand songwriting and music in general. I am always open to discuss what we do during a lesson. I believe it is my job to balance what you want to do with what you need to do in order to succeed.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have amps, guitars, 1/4 inch cables, tuners, metronomes, paper and pens.
Would like students to have all these things but can accommodate based on need.

*** Specialties ***
Rock, Pop, Blues, Country, flat-picking, finger-style

I must say that Benjamin was great. I come from no musical background and had zero knowledge. Benjamin made me feel relaxed and broke down the sessions in an easy way so that I could understand the concept of what we were trying to accomplish. I look forward to future lessons and learning how to play the guitar

About Detrece
DeTrece "Dee" Lavender is a native of Miami, Florida. When her family moved to Sarasota, she was afforded the opportunity to study music and the performing arts as a student of the Westcoast School/Henry L. Porter School of Music. It was then that Dee began to understand the power of the creative arts as an effective form of emotional expression and release. By middle school, DeTrece began fine tuning her natural talents by studying classical voice which earned her several starring roles in the Sarasota Youth Opera, The Aslo Theater and the Players Theater. She is also a proud former member of the Westcoast Black Theater Troop in Sarasota, FL. Under the caring leadership of these opportunities, she was able to combine musical and life experiences in order to offer a more well rounded educational and musical experience for her students.


She was awarded a scholarship to attend Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA, where she received a dual Bachelor of Music degree in Music Therapy and Vocal Performance (Class of 2003). It was through her service as a music therapist, Millieu (residential) counselor and music teacher in the Boston City Public Schools/Greater Boston Metropolitan Area, that she began to feel the call toward a greater understanding of the gravity and role of the socio-emotional needs of students (and their families/villages) in urban settings. This call brought her to Baltimore, MD where she enrolled in the Pastoral Counseling Masters of Science program at Loyola University. In addition to her studies, she currently teaches Elementary and Middle School choir/ Musicianship teacher in the Baltimore City Public Schools through the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's OrchKids Program. She also serves as Minister Of Music and Arts at two local churches.

When I was young, I was a fairly shy child. When I was introduced to art, it helped me out of my shell and allowed me to blossom into the person I am today. As I grew, I've learned a wide variety ort mediums to help me express my emotions in different ways. Soon becoming advance in, drawing, painting, animation, realism, writing (spoken word, poetry, rap etc), and proficient in digital design and multimedia. By the time I was 13, I had begun my journey of giving back by helping others learn to express themselves through different forms of art.

About Tyrell
I'm a young Realtor and entrepreneur with a deep passion for learning and math. Throughout all my schooling I've excel at math taking courses with students a grade level higher than my own. I graduated from Paul Laurence Dunbar Highschool and still tend to go back to the school to help students better and understand and learn to love math the way that I do.

I am very comfortable and experienced working with children. My mother has been running her home daycare service since before I can remember. Due to this I found myself as a huge help to the business by assisting the school aged kids with homework each day.

I am excited for us to get to know one another and to lend a hand to someone who needs help!

About Patrick
I am an experienced one-on-one tutor and teacher of American History and Law/Legal History. What I uniquely provide my students is a "passion for rich context"...my background is in history, philosophy, literature, politics and law (I am a licensed environmental attorney by profession). For example, when we cover the period of the early American republic (1783-1800), we won't just memorize names and dates, but we will understand the richness of the age of 1780s Philadelphia and Boston, Pennsylvania and Virginia, the growers, merchants. Puritans and Quakers, their religions and philosophies and private and social/political interests, what led to the Whiskey Rebellion and the Alien and Sedition Acts, what the newly independent Americans wanted from their government, how they rebelled against the imposition of new restraints, and how 1800 re
presented a second revolution. All the great periods of American History will similarly come alive in a fun, engaging, and therefore memorable way for you!

About Paige
I have been tutoring for about 10 - 12 years, since high school. I started with elementary reading and math and then moved into English, writing, reading, math, and history. I then professionally tutored to put myself through college. There I got nationally certified as a tutored and I specialize in English, Writing, and Language Arts. I served for a couple years as a teaching assistant as well. After I graduated, I went overseas to Kenya and taught math and English there as well. Now that I am back in the states, I have been tutoring a couple of students in English, Reading, and Math.
My approach is to help the student create habits that they can sustain to be successful and find what works for them. I am here to supplement the concepts that are already being taught, and in some cases, pick up objectives that teachers have neglected to t
each. I do more than just teach, I help students study, take tests, and understand how to navigate through school and classes, amidst of the many distractions - because honestly, that's one of the biggest factors.
