Liam B.

Eustis, FL

About Liam

I have been successfully teaching for over 15 years.
I studied at the Hartt School of Music and the Hartford Conservatory and I have been performing with various bands and in many musical theater productions over the past 20 years.

*** Lesson Details ***
My approach is to tailor each lesson to the students goals and needs. Everyone learns at a different pace and in different ways so all my students have their own custom lesson plan. I am looking for students who really want to excel and are willing to put in the time to achieve great results.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Guitar amps, Bas
s amp, electronic drum kit. Recording with Garageband

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide music stand, amp/cables, additional hand outs, electronic drum kit.

I expect the student to at least have the instrument they are learning and a music stand is also good.

*** Specialties ***
I teach rock, blues, classical. I typically use Hal Leonard books for sight reading/beginner players.

Bass Guitar · Online
I was trying to learn to play better on the bass guitar. Liam is an excellent teacher. He was patient to teach me what I wanted to learn. He was organized and gave clear instructions. He gave me examples of exercises to work on to play better.

Liam taught guitar lessons to one of my daughters for a couple of years, and I personally played with him for several years in our church's praise team. He's both a gifted teacher and a talented musician, and his passion is clear for both. What's perhaps most impressive is the ease and grace he displays when either teaching or playing; he makes it all look and feel easy. Equally impressive is the breadth of his musical knowledge and styles. He's equally versed with all types of music, from classical to jazz to some of the more contemporary artists like Mandisa.

Liam was one of my many guitar instructors. But it was always apparent to me that Liam stands out. Liam and I did lessons for over a year in New Hampshire when I was about 14. His knowledge and understanding of music never ceased to blow my mind. When I was a young guitarist, Liam's patience gave me a great environment to learn and grow. Later, we connected for a few more lessons before I went to college at age 17, and Liam really helped me when I was at a different stage in my ability. His versatility is amazing. Usually, versatility comes at the price of depth, but that is not so, with Liam. He cares about music, and he cares about teaching, and has the talent and knowledge to pass that on. Outstanding teacher.

Natalie H.

Yalaha, FL

About Natalie

Born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago, at the age of 9, Natalie knew music was something that was just a part of who she was. Writing songs on the piano before lessons could be scheduled, Natalie found herself immersed in a medium that would bring her joy for the rest of her life.

By age 14 Natalie had won several trophies competing in Classical piano with the Illinois Music Association.

As an adult, she would go on to fill her life with the world of music as a singer, songwriter, performer and recording artist.

Graduating from Elmhurst College (1997) with a Bachelor's in M
usic, Natalie received high accolades earning a membership in the Lambda Sigma Psi Music Honor Society.

During her college years, Natalie created and owned a local music publication called, "The Local Buzz". At this moment she had discovered her desire to teach. "I just wanted everyone I knew in music to know and use what I was learning, or had learned from the music classes, professionals I had been meeting and working with, and my overall music life experiences". By 1997, Natalie was signed to an independent label and embarked on a new adventure.

"Music is an adventure, but without the foundation and passion I had as a child, I would have never landed where I did. I truly LOVE to teach and share what I know about piano, and the world of music. Music is what I know, and know best. Helping to create a solid foundation and build confidence in someone embarking on a journey in music is the most rewarding profession I have ever had the honor of participating in."

*** Lesson Details ***
Natalie enjoys teaching students of any age, but specializes in piano, voice (beginner to intermediate) and beginning guitar, tailoring lessons to each individual's goals and reasons for learning whether it be for personal pleasure or professional performance.

Keeping things lighthearted and fun, Natalie breathes confidence into each student using her sense of humor, and down-to-earth personality.

Feeding off her 35 years of personal and professional experiences, Natalie patiently listens to the student's desires, needs and notates their learning patterns, allowing for growth at their own pace.

Natalie's goal is to Make Music Matter to you and create a foundation that will allow you to continue to find joy in making music for the rest of your life.

Fun first lesson...Natalie's enthusiasm filtered right through the screen to me, and the energy provided my "get away" from the rigors of the day. She was organized and followed up to make sure all my homework was sent correct digitally. Looking forward to my next lesson

Cares about her students

I just wanted to take the time to say Thank you for allowing my child the opportunity to sing the solo between productions. I think she did a great job and it allowed her to experience what it feels like to sing/perform in front of a large group.
You are a fantastic teacher and I am glad we found you!

Great vocal coach!

From the first moment I started retraining my voice with her, singing has become a joy again. Her teaching skills are seamless, her personality a delight. With her use of visualization and exercises she inspires confidence, and after a few weeks I am improving more than I have in years!

Rosely P.

Clermont, FL

About Rosely

PIANO TEACHER/TUTOR BIO:

I was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil and emigrated with my family to the United States, moving to Brooklyn in 1962 at the age of 9. I began my piano training in Brazil at the age of 7 and continued my studies in New York. I speak three languages fluently - English, Portuguese and Spanish.

After graduating high school, at the age of 17, I attended Hunter College briefly while continuing with piano lessons and had operatic training with a voice coach associated with the New York Metropolitan Opera. At this time, I also became a member of the Harry Belafonte Group,
touring the tri-state area schools as a singer in a musical history presentation highlighting African influence on Brazilian music.

While continuing piano lessons at the Long Island Conservatory of Music, I found my passion for teaching while still a student. During my early teaching career, I apprenticed with the conservatory's director, master teacher, composer and author of educational books, Sidney J. Lawrence. While shaping my philosophy of teaching, Mr. Lawrence became my mentor and friend. I taught 3-4 year olds in preschool music pedagogy classes while also teaching piano in a career that spans more than 30 years of working with children and adults at all levels.

I am able to adapt my teaching style to my students' unique way of thinking and communicate musical concepts in a way they can understand. I believe in not only teaching how to play the piano, but also the "language of music." This provides students with a holistic understanding that encompasses theory, technique, sight reading, basic composition, and performance, all while sharing my personal joy of music.

I now live in Clermont, FL after relocating from Georgia where I taught piano while also working as a part-time substitute teacher for the Gwinnett County Public Schools and an academics tutor for K-12 levels.

I feel that my high expectations for students encourages them to reach for the best of themselves, achieve the highest standards and carry their musical training into their future lives.

Mrs. P is an amazing piano teacher, and great for any level of experience. I'm 20 years old and knew relatively nothing about the piano, but its already been a few weeks and I'm improving and having a lot of fun. She is super helpful beyond just the lessons as well, going as far as to message with students regularly to keep up with them, and discussing with them options for purchasing their own starting pianos and practicing on their own time.

Mr. Arnold has a very thorough knowledge of music and what it takes to physically create music. If you don't understand something one way, he will explain it in other way's that you do understand. He seems to have no limit to his patience and caring about his student's. A great sense of humor, a guy you would like as a neighbor.

We found Mr. Arnold to be one of the best tutors around. He was easy to work with our changing schedule. He covered all the areas we needed, and was able to provide instruction through all levels of talent. We felt blessed for all the help he gave us, but also for the positive roll model he was.
