About Chris
Hi! My name is Chris. I am a violinist who has been playing since the 4th grade and teaching for over 10 years. I love music in all of its forms. Whether it's works of the great classical masters or plugging my electric violin into a new effects pedal, you can bet I'm loving every minute of it. But nothing is more rewarding to me than passing on that love of music to others!

I attended Florida Southern College in Lakeland, Florida, where I studied music education under renowned conductor and violinist, Dr. Arthur Prano. Since that time, I've played in traditional classical symphonies, broadway musical pit ensembles, and even fronted an original music rock band named Hotel Hurry.

Book lessons with me today! I can't wait to get started!

*** Lesson Details ***
I can assist you with everything from picking up the instrument for the first
time to improving upon what you already know. I believe every student should be approached in a unique way that works best with their personal style. I also believe that learning to play the violin doesn't have to be restricted to only classical music. Violins sound great in almost every genre of music, so why not use a great variety of music to learn with?

I employ methods from Suzuki and All For Strings in my lessons, in addition to other sources. I think what sets me apart from many other teachers is my flexibility. I understand that the same approach doesn't work equally for every student. Every student is different and learns differently. Adapting my teaching style to the student's unique needs is essential to their enjoyment and success!

Chris is awesome!

Chris provides really good feed back during every lesson. He lets me know what I need to work on and tips for improving and at the same time encourages me by telling me what I am doing well in. He also is very flexible and understanding. He was even kind enough to make sheet music for me for a piece of music that I really enjoy. Thanks Chris!

I have attended three lessons and so far I'm very happy. Chris is a kind gentleman, very helpful and patient. He provides clear instructions and looks for simple ways to explain techniques and related aspects. I'm looking forward to learn and practice as much as I can, counting on his support and guidelines.

Great Instructor, Highly Recommend

I have no background in music and am learning the violin as my first instrument. I picked Chris based on his profile and he is an swesome teacher. Everything I could possibly need in a teacher: clear explanations, constructive feedback, patience, flexibility, and a simple approach to teaching what I am appreciating is a very difficult instrument to master. Chris makes each lesson very fun and we laugh alot. He's sensitive to my trouble areas and encourages me to "stretch" to reach the challenge for the day. Imagine my pleasure when we were doing "duets" on lesson 2. I'm looking forwaard to a long, rewarding working relationship with Chris. 2 thumbs up!!

About Kevin
I am a private woodwind instructor and professional freelance musician. My main instrument is saxophone and I double on flute, teaching both with the addition of beginner to intermediate clarinet. I have a Masters in Jazz Studies from Manhattan School of Music and BA in Classical and Jazz Performance from Michigan State University. I am experienced in many different genres of music and have performed and recorded with many jazz, latin, funk, soul, fusion, R&B, pop, and classical ensembles.
For me teaching is extremely rewarding, the fact that I get to share and guide students through this creative art form that is so dear to me is really a special thing. Music has many aspects and certain students gravitate towards different aspects then others. I focus on these specific aspects so my students get the most creative and intellect
ual growth.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Studio w/ keyboards, chairs, stands, materials, computer, recording equipment (microphone, speakers) seating for parents in waiting room.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide books and learning materials for the first couple lessons and after that the student must supply for themselves. The student/s must have their own working instrument and accessories (reeds, mouthpiece, etc).

*** Specialties ***
Music Performance in Saxophone, Flute and Clarinet. Classical, Jazz and others. Improvisation, Theory and Ear Training

Kevin has been my teacher for 3 years. We meet once a week. Kevin is a gifted teacher (and a great musician). He only corrects a mistake once I've reached the level when I can fix it. This way I have been making progress week after week, and it feels good.

Kevin is a wonderful teacher. My daughter started saxophone lessons with him at the beginning of the summer and she adores him. He's funny, patient, encouraging and thoughtful. We couldn't ask for a better sax teacher! Kevin also taught a master class at my older son's middle school and he was fantastic. I highly recommend him!

Every lesson with me will provide to the student consistent advancement in musical knowledge. Whether it is Playing guitar, Singing, ( or both), or Playing piano, I will help you get where you want to be. I do incorporate in the Lesson Plan, learning Music Theory to the applied instrument. I encourage a positive approach to learning music to ensure goals are met.

Aimee is wonderful! The best singing instruction I have ever had, by far.
Since day 1 she has been helping me to work on my singing technique by doing exercises that have strengthen my voice.
Also, Aimee is a teacher during and after the lesson. One of the things I appreciate most about here is that after every lesson she takes the time to prepare a sheet for me to practice, and whenever I pick a song I want to learn for the following week, she does research and preparation on it, so by the time the lesson comes, she has always great pointers and suggestions for me.
Looking forward to many more lessons!

First of all, Mrs. Aimee is very welcoming and also very professional. She is truly determine and committed to making the best that each student can be. The one thing that I absolutely loved about being taught by Mrs. Aime is that she actually gives me homework on how to practice, which not may instructures do.

I tailor instruction to my students' goals... not mine. Goal #1..we're having fun as we learn !.. this is not to be confused with Navy Seals Training !

Years ago I took Guitar Lessons at a local music store ( a very prominent one) as a raw beginner and quickly became frustrated with my lack of progress. Although my teacher was a great player and "very hot" to look at I soon began to feel like I was merely his "practice dummy."... I'd play the chords he showed me, endlessly,... while he seemed to be just practicing his solo playing. ... I then tried On-Line Lessons from various sites which were actually even less helpful and soon just lost interest completely.
A friend of mine said she had taken lessons from a Don DeBold for about 5 years before going off to college and highly recommended him.
I've now been taking lessons from Don for almost 2 years and having a blast ! I've learned how to play along with most of my favorite songs (mainly Blues and Rock) and now I'm learning to play Solo Guitar that needs no accompaniment !
Unlike my first teacher, during many lessons Don barely plays or even has his Strat on his lap because he's busy concentrating on what I'm doing !
He's a stickler yet lots of fun at the same time> I super recommend him as a Guitar and Music Teacher !!! Aneiah J.

Don is an amazing teacher to say the least!! I've playing guitar for years with never a full grasp of harmony, and within a few short hours he caught me up on some of the most vital information I was missing. A true expert teacher.. Give him a chance... You won't be disappointed!!!

About Jennifer
Introduction:
While I am primarily a musician, I am also a freelance proofreader, and I always excelled in English class. Much of this "about me" section pertains to my musical background, as that is my primary profession. My reading and writing background is included later on in this section.

Flute Experience:
I started playing the flute when I was in fourth grade. My elementary school offered weekly flute classes, then in fifth grade we had weekly orchestra classes. But I loved the flute so much I wanted more. I began private lessons at 10 years old, and I have never looked back. From there, I went on to play in my high school's marching band, concert band, pit orchestra, and symphony orchestra; I played in three different flute choirs and my local youth orchestra outside of school; I earned two performance degrees from
the University of North Texas (Bachelor of Music) and Stony Brook University (Master of Music); I have performed with orchestras in the United States, Canada, and Europe; I have played in pit orchestras for musicals and operas; I have competed in solo competitions, I have auditioned for professional orchestras, and I have taught dozens of students of all ages across the country.
I remain eternally grateful to all my generous mentors who have inspired me throughout my career. My mentors include notable flutists Dr. Mary Karen Clardy, Dr. Elizabeth McNutt, Francine Ross Pancost, Dr. James Scott, Terri Sundberg, Jim Walker, and Carol Wincenc.

Flute, Piccolo, and Music Performance Lessons:
As a teacher, I strive to put my students first. I work with you, and for you, to help you grow as a musician or as a student. I do not believe in a one-size-fits-all mentality. Instead, I believe in a flexible and customizable teaching model, which creates a highly personalized learning experience. Whether you have been playing for 20 years and want to get back in shape, or you first touched a flute last week, I can help you to build upon your flute, piccolo, or performance skills. I pride myself in giving my students 110%, and I hope that that resonates with you as you search for a teacher who fits your needs.

Reading and Writing:
As a tutor for reading and writing, I focus on reaching whatever goal we set out to achieve when you become my student. Whether you need help analyzing literature, taking notes from a text book, or organizing a research paper, I am determined to help you become the best version of yourself. Everyone has something unique to offer, and it's my job as a tutor to bring that out of you so you can share it with the world.

I have listened to Jennifer as she gave flute lessons to several young beginning students. I observed that she truly cares about her students and invests herself in their progress. She has a creative teaching style, always coming up with new ways to approach the challenges of each individual student. She spends time to discover the students’ goals and structures their lesson plans accordingly. Jennifer is also a good communicator with the parents of younger students, making sure they are informed and inviting them to observe lessons if they wish. I’m sure you’ll find her a delight to work with.

About Lauren
As a vocalist, synth-player, composer, and producer,I use my knowledge and experience in technology based professions to explore the relationship between music and tech.

As a “synth-enthusiast”, I have cultivated a vivid musical aesthetic under the moniker mini bear, with which I have written, produced, and released 2 EPs and 1 full length album. Illustrating a sound rich in 80s referenced romantic nostalgia, mini bear has garnered praise and recognition from respected media such as Grimy Goods, Impose Magazine and international indie press. She currently is an active performer in Los Angeles who has played in local venues such as Resident, The Hi Hat, Bootleg Theatre, Moroccan Lounge, and The Satellite.

In addition to my experience working in Tech, my role as a teacher has also grown over the span of 10+ years. As a Creative Trainer
at the Apple store, I have taught customers computer skills and Pro-Apple software such as Logic Pro in both private one-on-one and workshop settings. I have been producing in Ableton Live for the past four years, and I have done consulting sessions to determine work efficiency. Content and teaching styles are customized based upon the learners skills and learning styles.
