*** Lesson Details ***
Learning a musical instrument should be a fun and rewarding experience that enriches your life!

With over 7 years of teaching guitar and over 13 years performing, I know that efficient practice habits and solid technique can unlock your inner potential.

As a student of mine, you can expect a fun and challenging learning environment where bad habits will never be an issue. I primarily teach classical guitar, although all styles are welcome!

My curriculum covers the basics of right and left hand technique, sight reading, ensemble playing, music theory, and performance practice.

It is my personal guarantee, with your dedication and hard work, within 3-6 months, you will have a competent grasp of basic guitar technique, note reading and musicality.

I look forward to working with you!

Sincerely,
Travis C.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide classical guitar footstools, music stands, as well as music theory text books to get started. I require the student to provide their own guitar. I am also available to consult on the purchasing of a guitar.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Classical Guitar and teach many methods depending on the students needs. I can teach the Suzuki method and the Parkening method but primarily teach out of "Bridges" The Royal Conservatory of Music graded repertoire series.

He is also very encouraging and supportive of my just enjoying the guitar, even with mistakes. So far, I am having a great time!

About Ilona
I am experienced (3 years) in home school tutoring. I mostly work with Florida Virtual School students. I overlook their tests and assignments, and help them with preparations for Discussion Based Assessmemts (DBA). I also help parents with required annual evaluations and how to sign up with home education department.
For my tutoring sessions I use skills that include goal-directedness, I teach how to organize learning in small steps and how to set them up; I always strive to motivate and engage my students to make them interested in learning and have fun; I also use self-control skills to teach how to avoid distractions and I show how to use different focusing strategies. I use positive mind set skills to teach how to use failures as learning opportunities.

I have Masters in Education (2018) with specialization in English, Curricul
um and Education; and Masters in Arts (2012) in Teaching English to speakers of other languages, and Bachelors in Music Education (2010), both from Florida Atlantic University, as well as a degree in violin performance from Chicago.
I studied piano in Chicago for 10 years & taught both piano & violin for over 20 years. I also teach flute & cello for the past 5 years, as I studied them during my Music Education program.
I have taught music for over 24 years using the traditional and Suzuki methods. I am fan of the Essential Elements method and I Can Read Music book for string instruments, and the Alfred's Piano Library for piano. Alfred's piano library can be used for any age as they also have books especially made for adult learners. I also like their music flash cards.
For teaching music theory I mostly used Fundamentals of Piano Theory (9 levels) combined with Master Theory (6 levels) books.

I personalize every lesson, and always set goals for my students. Most of my violin students are members of the Florida Youth Orchestra as well as the Gold Coast Youth Orchestra and my piano students participate in Pompano Beach Piano competition and the annual Piano Guild auditions.
I teach any age and any level, and always stress that learning a new instrument is very similar to learning a new language, it needs a lot of patience, persistence and repetitions. My lessons are customized to my students needs, and are work in progress as they needs may change over time. I always remind my students that music can give them instant gratification when they learn to play favorite songs.
I always encourage my students to tell me about their music preferences, so I can incorporate them in their music lessons.

*** Lesson Details ***
All my tutoring sessions include reviews of previously learned material and if possible the use of technology. I use students books but often bring extra study materials if necessary.
All my lessons include technique and reading music. I like to use the Finger Power for piano students and Essential Elements for my string students, and scales for both.
Music theory: I use Master Theory and Fundamentals of Piano Theory books for younger ages, Alfred's music flash cards to support learning notes and musical terminology, and of course the fun part performance.

Besides Essential Elements for strings I also use String Tunes and I Can Read Music to add more fun to the lessons as well as support reading music during the lesson. For piano students I use Holiday Treats book, which comes in 2 different levels: Beginner & Intermediate, so my students have a new songs for a specific holiday.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I always bring violin with me to be able to show what I teach.

*** Travel Equipment ***
The students need to have their books and assigned material ready for tutoring. Instrumental students needs to have their music books, flashcards & instrument available as well as a pencil. I always stress with my students to be organized and prepared for their lesson, this way they will be able to focus better during the lesson. I always bring my violin with me. I also ask that the room where the lesson takes place be free of any distractions, such other siblings or any other noise. The quiet environment helps in faster learning.

*** Specialties ***
I tutor most K-12 subjects and prepare students to take ACT, SAT, GRE tests.
Music genres: Classical, traditional, Suzuki, Popular, Celtic, fiddle, Blues

I'm sorry, I cannot handle this Instructor for my children. She wasn't me but she's not quite the people person I expected. Her personality is not a good match for a high school tutor. Unfortunately her English is not good enough. Her accent is entirely too strong. Also she does not know enough Geometry to help my kids.

I teach all levels of Music Performance skills. This ranges from Recital readiness, to how to audition for solo, choral, or Musical Theater productions. My students have a fabulous time performing for their school talent shows, as well as being offered solos for special musical Theater parts. My Students also perform for many other genres, including playing in Bands, or for special events. The Star Spangled Banner is always something that a singer can use in their repertoire.

About Susan
My primary focus is teaching the best and most effective Vocal Techniques to students of all ages and backgrounds. I also teach Acoustic Guitar and finger picking. My teaching includes the Orff and Suzuki methods of music for Children. My primary focus is on teaching singing and I have been teaching beginning to advanced Voice, as well as beginning to intermediate acoustic guitar privately for over 25 years. My students perform in recitals at least twice a year. They also participate in local Broadway productions and Musicals for C.Y.T., Coast Kids, Moonlight Theatre, Escondido Center for The Arts, J Company, and Star Theatre Productions. Students also are involved with Classical, Choral, Gospel, Pop and Rock performing. Along with these venues, students perform for talent shows at their schools, sing in bands, and perform locally at thei
r favorite venues. Many of my students have gone on to sing professionally and I currently teach Artists with ongoing careers.

My motto is learn to sing the "Easy, Natural Way". I teach the very best techniques, so vocalizing is not strained or difficult. My main focus is on teaching good "placement" of the sound, using the best ways to secure breath support and control, as well as good stage presence. Dealing with stage fright is always addressed, whether the singer wants to sing just for themselves, or audition for Musical Theatre productions. Styles range from pop to rock and opera.
I teach students of ALL AGES and work with every style or genre of music. Having spearheaded the Music program at the local YMCA has been a special treat in my teaching career!

*** Studio Equipment ***
I teach using a piano for learning vocal exercises and good techniques. I also have an acoustic Guitar that I use to teach my students how to play and learn good finger picking and strumming techniques. Using a computer is always employed, to pull up songs on YouTube, so students can choose what they would like to work on. Karaoke versions are used as well, for further training purposes.

*** Travel Equipment ***
When I teach at a student's home, I bring my Guitar with me, if they're studying this instrument. It is helpful for a student to have a piano or keyboard for me to teach voice, but I do have a keyboard I can bring if none is available. Having a computer close by is very helpful, to get the most out of the lesson as is possible.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in helping people who have created possible "bad habits" in their singing techniques. "Placement" and breathing, or "support", are of key importance. When good techniques are used, just about anyone can learn to sing beautifully. I also work with all ages, having background with Children, as well as teens, middle age, and elderly vocalists. Singing is universal, so every ethnicity is included in my student roster. If someone wants to learn to play the acoustic Guitar, this is always a plus, to accompany ones-self, or to focus on the instrument on it's own. Singing and playing should be "easy" and this is the approach I take in teaching.

Hurray, it's time to get ready to show off your mad music skills, but you have a tendency to leave them wanting more. Let's talk about you performance ability. What makes your sound yours, are you fun to watch, and can you make a song come to life? All of these things are required to perform at your peak. This will push your limits and possibly free you to perform the way you always dreamed you could. Let's get started!!

About William
Hello everyone. My journey into teaching has opened up so many doors for me and has made me a better instructor. I have been participating in music programs from the age of 3. Music is my passion. I have learned many instruments along the way, and I have pressed through to achieve not only my academic aspirations, but my personal goals as well. I tailor my lessons to my students, pin pointing what we need to work on, and reinforcing what is already going well. I can come to you in person, or via internet. My goal is to help you reach your goals musically, and to encourage you in your journey to becoming a musician.

Lessons with me will be engaging, informative, and fun. My favorite moment while teaching is watching a student light up when they finally get a concept or nail a passage they've been working on.

. I love talking in metaphors and will often try to use a student's favorite hobby, sport, video game, etc. to find the best possible way to explain a difficult concept or describe exactly what I want them to do.

I set clear goals for each lesson and expect the students to try their best to meet them. I don't expect perfection, but I do expect them to put in the effort. No musician will tell you that they "work" their instrument. We practice and play our instrument, just like an athlete practices and plays their sport. Effort is involved, but it doesn't have to be work!

I encourage my students to love their instrument, their music-making, and learning, no matter what age or background they come from. I am always available via email or text to communicate with students and parents to ensure that we stay on the same page and know what is expected from one another.

I am a professional musician who has held multiple positions as director of music at churches and has taught individual voice lessons with students with ages ranging from 5-92. Life is hard, let's learn music together in a way that builds us up. I believe that everyone with the singing bug has a diva waiting to be born and developed so they can shine!

I am currently a content creator, a private voice teacher, and the mother of a 3-year old. I would love to help you work toward your personal and professional goals with music goals in mind! My passion is for helping others use the instrument they were born with, both in the care of the voice and using it to express themselves beautifully, efficiently, and correctly.
