We are so delighted to have Luther teaching our girls the piano. Our eldest who is 7 has played for a while but we are really seeing a huge impact with his instruction. She is more excited to learn and even goes independently now to practice on her own in the middle of the week, which was really never the case and she really loved her last teacher of two years. After just 3 lessons ( with a gap in between the first two) we can see she has progressed more than she has in 6 months of weekly lessons. The thing that we really love is that he is not just there to make a dollar, and he does not want to waste your money and will give it to you straight! You couldn't ask for more! OUr youngest was so impressed now even she is showing an interest in the piano and she took over the second lesson and now we have gotten the 4 year old started as well. Very satisfied customers already. Looking forward to an awesome year!

I have a Bachelor Degree in Clarinet Performance from FIU. I teach clarinet following the same principles I use in my piano method: Brain-Based Piano Method.

About Leidys
Hi, at the Miami Piano Studio we love to teach children as young as 3 years old and adults using our own method. The Brain-Based Piano Method is a Mindful and Comprehensive System to learn music and piano that incorporates the principles and practices used by the great masters of western music and the latest scientific findings on how we learn. Our method incorporates the now rediscovered art of Partimenti, a way to see and understand music that allows students to make music in real time (compose, improvise). We, my husband and I, started creating our method in 2012 when we could not find a comprehensive method conceived with today's parents and children needs in mind. We are proud to say that our method has proved to be fun, engaging, effective and practical. our students learn from early on the basics of music: ear training, music theor
y, piano technique, reading and writing notes, improvization, composition, and more. For us creativity is first. We constantly encourage our students to be creative from the very beginning. Our method is a complete system for learning the piano that includes books, rewards, teaching materials, musical story books, recordings and video tutorials accessible online. When you Join us, you will become part of a creative and dynamic studio! You will learn how to see the connections present in music and to transfer all that knowledge to other aspects of your lives. I hope to meet you soon to start a very exciting musical learning journey!

My daughter loves going to piano class, and asks when she is going back. I am amazed by the things that she has learned so quickly, and in such a short period of time. Each class introduces her to something new, or allows her to strengthen her skills in a new way. This method of teaching piano is so innovative because my daughter has learned how to play the right and left hand of a musical score with clapping and body movements. She has also learned to conduct, play with 5 fingers, and sing songs. All of this, and she has only had 4 classes. The connection to math and reading are amazing, and are evident during each moment. Highly recommended.

Developing and understanding Clarinet fundamentals are crucial to Clarinet playing no matter the level of playing. Focusing and cultivating good fundamental habits will lead to a students success. Finding the joy, love, and passion in music is just as important while developing good habits.

These good habits can be developed through the help with Band and Orchestral music, Solo Repertoire, and basic method books. Whether you're just starting to learn clarinet, looking for more guidance, or even looking to re-kindle your love for the clarinet, I can help you achieve your clarinet goals.

About Michael
I am a recent Clarinet performance major graduate from DePaul University, that studied with the now retired principal clarinetist of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Larry Combs.

Not only is teaching one of my favorite parts of music, it is a very important part of music. Lessons will include the development of skills such as tone production, embouchure, proper technique, knowledge of Clarinet repertoire, reading music and much more that is equally important to successful Clarinet playing.

Katie has been my daughter's flute instructor for 3 years (one year as her band instructor and 2 years of private lessons). She is extremely professional, always communicates my daughter's progress, challenges her to improve, and makes the lessons a lot of fun. My daughter loves taking lessons from Katie, and under her tutelage she has improved in her ability and love of music. I would highly recommend Katie as an instructor.

My teaching technique combines methods from the canon of traditional pedagogy with music of today to help students develop musicianship. Lesson plans are individually tailored to each student’s ability with a focus on building fundamental skills on the instrument, and encouraging the development of total musicianship, to include aural skills, theory, and experience in a wide variety of musical genres.

About Trent
For the past decade I have been performing with the U.S. Navy Music Program in places like Australia, Japan, Costa Rica, New Orleans, and Norfolk, Virginia. I've been a featured soloist on clarinet and saxophone with concert bands, jazz bands, rock groups, and brass bands. Before joining the Navy I taught band and woodwind classes for a public school in Northeast Ohio.

I'm excited to begin working with students in Northern Virginia, Maryland, and Washington D.C. You can expect to learn the fundamentals of your instrument that will help you perform any kind of music, and receive custom-made lessons designed to help you grow as a musician. I make sure my students learn something new in each lesson, and experience success with weekly lesson goals that are practical and achievable.

Using my training and experience as an educator and perfor
mer, I focus on helping beginning students start with a solid foundation, and intermediate students develop their abilities as they grow and learn. Parents and students can expect a professional demeanor, and clear communication about all aspects of my methods and availability. Contact me today, let’s begin making music!
