About Mitchell

With almost 20 years of music education experience, I have developed a super fun and effective teaching method that has proven to work. I am a kid at heart and love working with children. And as the oldest child of 6, I possess the necessary patience and enthusiasm for their learning development. In addition, I have worked with many adult students who initially thought it was "too late" for them to learn an instrument. They proved themselves wrong and were very successful with their new found talent. I have been a professional recording artist and live performer since the age of 15. I began te
aching around the same time as a way of earning extra spending money. As the years went on, I fell more in love with teaching and formed a career out of it. So come join me on this musical journey and give the gift of music!!

I have taken lessons from Mitchell and have grown leaps and bounds in my ability to not on become a better guitar player, but also learning the fundamentals so that I can play on my own. He is the ultimate professional and his own skills as a musician show up when he is teaching.

It was a pleasure meeting Mitchell, he's a very good instructor. My daughter became very enthusiastic with everything that he taught her in just one hour. He was very clear with his methods and she understood everything. I recommend him as very good instructor.

Erik A.

Miami Beach, FL

Guitar is my main instrument (other than voice). I have a passion for sharing my knowledge and I can help you learn pretty much any style. I'll get you ready to play on your own and also help you learn how to jam with friends.

About Erik

I want to teach you how to express yourself through music. I've been inspired by music since I was young and have been involved in one way or another since I started piano lessons at age 3. I've been playing guitar for over fifteen years and written and recorded music for about eight. Whether you want to go into music seriously as I have, or just use music as a hobby and way to express yourself, I want to help you accomplish your goal.

*** Lesson Details ***
Each person is different and learns in a slightly different way. Having said that, there are certain essentials which must not be
ignored. If you've never taken lessons before, we'll start with the fundamentals, how to hold the guitar properly, make chords, build up finger strength, properly tune the guitar, know all the strings, and most importantly play songs. You will learn how to read basic music, but I can teach you how to play by ear too. Before we have completed our series you or your children will have basic knowledge of all these things and a desire to explore at least some of these aspects further.

For me, the most interesting music reveals the unique perspective and feelings of the person who makes it. Having conquered the essentials I will encourage you to be creative with your developing talents. I can teach you about song structure and I can teach you how to jam with your friends. If you are interested in writing and composing, I can help you with that too. We can take a look at your favorite artists and try to discover how they accomplished and perfected their sound. If you want to learn how to record I have a computer equipped with Pro Tools and would be glad to show you how to use it.

You'll spend time listening to me of course, but I hope to spend much of my time listening to you as well. If reading music doesn't inspire you we can focus more on learning by ear. It's up to you. You'll need your own instrument obviously, though you can leave it at home if you don't want to carry it back and forth. I have guitars here. I request that you purchase a book with text and exercises so that you can practice and study what you learn in the class. Even if you do not want to read music, you will need to know the neck and conquer scale formations and chords. We can choose the text based on your needs.

Great Experience

You will learn so much with Erik! He has a solid grasp on a lot of music theory and knows how to break that down and explain it. The sessions are fun! I always look forward to the lesson, and they seem so short because the time is flying by. I definitely recommend Erik as a teacher.

Lucian W.

Miami, FL

- determining specific musical goals
- simple chords - strumming
- using the pick
- playing melodies

About Lucian

Lucian W is an alumnus of Berklee College of Music in Boston and former faculty member of the Hartford Conservatory. His vocal studies have been with Jacqueline Jarrett and David Baker in Connecticut, Jane Ellison at Loyola University in Montreal, noted operatic tenor Carmine Gagliardi in New York City, and Gina Moretta (whose students have included Gloria Estefan and Jon Secada) in Miami. He studied privately with world famous jazz guitarists George Benson and Chuck Wayne and has had a full time performing career of several decades as a guitarist, pianist, vocalist, bassist, arranger and orc
hestra leader.
Lucian believes that by sharing his enjoyment of making music with his students, he can give them confidence in other areas. That is because, in order to make music, they must go through a process of physical discovery through practice. They are then empowered by experiencing the connections between inspiration, work, and pleasure.
He performs, as a solo entertainer, an unusually wide ranging repertoire because of his versatility on guitar, piano, and vocals. Being an accomplished arranger with a vast library of charts also allows him to lead a ten piece orchestra as competently as a trio or quartet. He has performed extensively in New York, Chicago, Cape Cod, and Florida.

*** Lesson Details ***
I always try to make lessons as comfortable and enjoyable as possible yet challenging enough to maintain interest. I build lessons around the student's individual interests (specific songs or styles) so that he or she can learn the technical fundamentals in a relevant context.
My own curriculum is supplemented by the following:
Guitar: Hal Leonard Guitar Method, Aaron Shearer Classical Guitar Method
Piano: Alfred's Basic Piano Course , John W. Schaum Piano Course
Voice: Jeffrey Allen's Secrets of Singing, Nicola Vaccai Practical Method

*** Studio Equipment ***
Hardman baby grand acoustic piano
OptimusMD1600 electronic keyboard
Crate TX50D guitar amplifer

*** Specialties ***
- Singing lesson time is generally divided 50/50 between voice building and repertoire. I accompany vocalists on both piano and guitar, teaching the melody notes as they are sung along with the piano. Then, once the melody is learned, I often switch to the guitar with just chordal backing. The acoustic guitar is also softer than the piano and lets the singer hear their own voice better. For voice building, I use my own concepts plus approaches of famous voice teachers like Jeffrey Allen, Seth Riggs, and Anthony Frissel.
- I am very experienced performing all styles of guitar and can cater to the student's specific area of interest, whether it be rock, folk, classical, or jazz.
- With piano, I work on fundamentals of reading and technique. Learning basic harmony and chord construction starting with triads (3 note chords), the student can soon read single stave lead sheets (a form of music notation widely utilized by professional musicians) as well as the grand staff. This approach trains the ear and makes learning how to play popular songs much easier.

Lucian will listen to whatever it is that you want to learn and give you all the building blocks to play how you want to play and explore your options on the neck in many different ways. I am a intermediate guitar player and within a few lessons with Lucian I was given tools to work on and practice for months to improve my skills and technique/ approach to playing. I would recommend his lessons to ANYONE looking to improve!

Dyce K.

Hollywood, FL

Learn from a pro to play like a pro! 30 years of playing experience at your service!

About Dyce

Dyce’s action-packed lessons get aspiring students learning real songs in no time—all while teaching them music theory and scales that connects the music to relatable, practical theory. His custom-tailored lessons are based on this realization. “I know that all of my students are unique, both as people, and as musicians,” Dyce states, “so I realized that my lessons should celebrate these differences.” Instead of following a rigid, “cookie-cutter” approach to teaching, he makes allowances for these differences, and custom tailors a lesson plan that enriches their musical tastes, goals, and s
trengths. Dyce has learned, over two decades of playing and teaching professionally, when to push students—and when to stay out of the way. This sort of expert guidance helps students flourish, because they learn music on their own terms.

Dyce is an awesome guitarist, and above all, a nice guy; versatile in his playing, genuinely interested in the STUDENT and his/her goals, and incredibly knowledgeable in all things music. Apart from just learning how to master the guitar, you can also learn about amps, effect pedals, boosters, EQ, and the list goes on..

You won't go wrong!

I've taken about 4 lessons from Dyce so far, and

I have been with 2 teachers before him, and I have faced the same problem, they do not listen.

Being a married man in my 60's I don't have much time to practice, and thus I cannot waste my time learning things that will keep me (not) doing what I want for a long time.

I told them, the same thing I told Dyce, I want to learn to play Blues/Rock Lead and Rhythm guitar asap, not by doing (mostly) exercises, but by doing exercise that will quickly lead me to start playing simple Blues/Rock songs, this way I don't get board, and give up playing (which I do not want to do).

From the first day I started with Dyce he listened and has continued to do so, he has given me simple scales and songs to help me start playing lead guitar rite away, and I know that Dyce will keep me going steady towards my goal, of being a proficient Blues/Rock guitar player as soon as possible.

Dyce knows what it takes to get one playing quickly, and is not afraid of (loosing) a student too quickly do to him giving the student some short cuts, that shows that he truly cares and listens, and that he is confident about him self as a teacher.
