Music is an extremely multifaceted skill and every student learns in a completely different way. Some students will gravitate towards certain aspects of music more then others. For me, it is all about favoring these aspects in order for the student to get the most creative and intellectual growth. I am a well-versed professional musician and have experience in many genres from classical to more popular styles. I teach strong foundations in note reading, music theory, ear training, sight reading, technique, improvisation and more. My lessons are always encouraging no matter what level or pace the student is at. Send me a message, I look forward to working with you!

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.

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!

I took up clarinet several years ago and have done some writing and recording for clarinet. I'm happy to offer my skills and to work with novice players on proper fingering and technique, embouchure, music notation reading and theory, phrasing, and musicality.

About Gio
I studied music at UCF (Orlando), focusing on classical and jazz guitar, but I also have years of experience playing rock, blues, folk, hip-hop, and musical theater on both guitar and drums.

I have been teaching guitar, drums, and piano for about eight years to students of all ages. Music is what I'm passionate about and it's what I enjoy. I want to inspire that same passion into the hearts and minds of others.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid-back teacher, fun, and I focus on the needs, abilities, and ambitions of the student. In turn, students must realize that learning an instrument takes a lot of work and dedication. One can't expect to learn very much if s/he only practices or thinks about the instrument during the lesson. If the student is willing to put some time into practicing, then I will help them go far!

*** Studi
o Equipment ***
I have several guitars, a drum kit, djembe, mandolin, clarinet and full-size keyboard.

*** Specialties ***
Guitar: Classical, jazz, American or Irish folk, rock and pop; lead or rhythm.
Drums & Percussion: All genres
Piano: Classical (includes sight reading)

I have been teaching clarinet for 22 years. I have an earned Masters degree in music and enjoy teaching students of all ages. I am happily married with 5 children at home--4 of them are musicians as well (the youngest is 4).. Students will quickly learn not only the basics of music theory, but will be playing songs as early as their first lesson. It is extremely rewarding watching students have fun, excel, and fall in love with making music. I look forward to working with you.

I have been playing clarinet professionally for over six years. My first performance was a production of "Guys and Dolls," and it opened up opportunities to play multiple woodwinds in all kinds of contexts. I am currently on-call to play with a number of symphony orchestras in town as well.
I am excited to share my passion for this beautiful instrument!

About Michael
I am a woodwind specialist with a degree in saxophone performance from the University of Arizona. I have been performing and competing since the fifth grade. Since arriving in Tucson in 2010, I have performed in dozens of groups playing many various musical styles including classical, jazz, musical theater, rock, funk and avant garde. Music has provided me with the opportunity to travel all over the world, from London to China and Mexico to Peru.
I opened my private lesson studio in 2012. Since then, I have cultivated a deep passion for creating personalized lessons for motivated students. My students have included beginners as young as eight years old to advanced players well into their retirement.
I'm looking forward to sharing my passion with you!

When my 11 year old son first began saxophone lessons with Michael Weiss, he was a true beginner but within 5 months, he was playing a song at a recital! Michael is patient and kind but firm in his direction and has instilled confidence in my son that he can play whatever songs he wants to play with focus and practice. Michael is flexible and adept at tailoring his lessons to the individual's needs. I highly recommend him.

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.

Our family experience with Leidys and Mihai was a wonderful one. They know how to incorporate the children into the classroom and made them feel important, which is great for the children's development. They were very kind and loving to my children. They are great people who are generous of their time and knowledge. They look forward to building bonds not only with the children, but also with the whole family. They give tips and suggestions on Music Education. They became friends to us and to my children! We highly recommend them to instill in children the love of Music in all its forms. They also provide piano classes for adults and their method is great!!! Only great things can be said about these amazing and caring teachers!!

Hello!

I am a private music instructor specializing in woodwind instruments looking to take on clarinet, flute and saxophone students!

My lessons consist of a well balanced coverage of exercises (scales, note patterns, etudes, duets, major repertoire, etc) geared towards building a solid foundation in playing technique. This allows each student to be accurate and expressive with a sense of ease in their playing! Students of the studio are also thrown into the world of music! They are strongly encouraged to attend concerts, listen to music regularly, and attend masterclasses. The goal is not just to learn an instrument, but to also develop a life-long love and appreciation for music!

I am very proud to say that my students soar through their band and orchestra programs in school and obtain a sound quality/sense of musicality way beyond their grade level! The majority of my students excel past their school music programs! They join youth/honor bands and orchestras, chamber ...

About Carter
I believe that everyone has the ability to enjoy and be expressive on an instrument. It is miss instruction and a lack of passion in music education that allows students to become frustrated and bored, ultimately pushing them to quit their instruments.

My goal as a music educator is not only to teach the mechanics of an instrument, but to also inspire a life-long passion for music. Therefore I make a point to encourage students to explore all the music there is to be had in their surrounding environment! This includes attending concerts, listening to great recordings and savoring all the music that our modern-day media has to offer!

With this consistent musical exploration I teach a thorough curriculum of scales, exercises, duets and standard solo repertoire pieces. Surrounding all this is a foundation in music theory. This pedagogi
cal study will enable a fun and easy experience when students pick up their instruments to perform music!

In addition to this private study I strongly encourage my students to pursue extra-curricular musical activities outside their school music programs. This includes auditioning for honor bands/orchestras, chamber music, music competitions and effective musical examinations such as Certificate of Merit. I believe a constant setting and achieving of goals is the foundation of growth in anything we do and music is no exception.

I am proud to say that the majority of my students develop great interest in classical music, fueling them to push past their difficulties and achieve a high standard of musical performance!

Before beginning lessons with Carter, playing clarinet was something that I dreaded to do to say the least. Once I started lessons I experienced exponential growth in my playing abilities and began to enjoy the instrument. Fast forward 6 years, because of the help of Carter, I have the opportunity to perform in prestigious youth groups, and have experiences that I wouldn't have had otherwise. Because of my lessons I have developed a love for playing clarinet and music that I wouldn't have had without Carter. -Matthew 6 years

Carter has been instrumental in my son's growth and development as a musician and clarinetist. He has worked with my son over six years and has displayed patience, exceptional teaching ability and coaching, and clear talent as a musician. Due to Carter's support and teaching over the years, my son has realized tremendous success. He has been First Chair in his Wind Ensemble group at school, a member of the Pacific Symphony Youth Wind Ensemble, and a member of the California All-State Music Ensemble. I strongly believe that, without Carter, these accomplishments would have not been possible!

"My daughter started flute lessons with Carter 4 years ago, and it has been an immensely positive experience. Carter is very knowledgeable and professional. He strikes exactly the right balance between encouraging my daughter and challenging her. As a consequence, she has gone from a beginner to a very proficient player in a children's orchestra. Carter also helps his students to enlarge their musical activity by giving concerts, joining ensemble groups and listening to other musicians. I would highly recommend him as a teacher to either beginners or more advanced players."

I am a current student at the New England Conservatory of Music studying with William Hudgins, the Principal Clarinetist of the Boston Symphony Orchestra.

I have experience teaching beginners through high school students. I aim to create a positive and nurturing environment for all of my students. My teaching methods provide students with structure by focusing on goal-based learning and time management. Lessons will cover various practice techniques and ways to better understand and utilize the body while playing.

Students will be asked to dedicate 15-30 minutes of focused and efficient practice a day. At the culmination of each lesson, a list of goals and assignments will be created collaboratively with the student. A practice log will then be kept, offering students the ability to reflect and improve their practice in a rewarding manner.

About Susan
I am a clarinetist studying at the New England Conservatory of Music. My private instructor is Boston Symphony Orchestra clarinetist, William Hudgins. Prior to studying with Mr. Hudgins I have worked with Timothy Zavadil, Scott Anderson, Daniel Silver, and Stacey McColley.

At the Conservatory, I play in the Symphony Orchestra under the direction of David Loebel and Hugh Wolff and the Symphonic Winds under the direction of Bill Drury. I am also involved in a woodwind quintet. I spent two summers studying at the Interlochen Summer Music Festival as a member of the World Youth Symphonic Orchestra and the Interlochen Philharmonic with world-renowned conductors.

Having spent 10 years honing in on my craft, I am hoping to share my expertise and passion with students of all ability levels. I have worked privately with a few students over past
three years and have developed a strategy for success. I hope you will consider me in your pursuit of music, and I can't wait to work with you!

About Jose
I started my musical adventure at age 7 playing drums in church. When I turned 12 years old, I was accepted to study at the Escuela Libre de Músicario de Hato Rey, in Puerto Rico. This is when I discovered the saxophone. There I studied under Angel Marrero and Indio Martínez. After finishing high school, I went on to the University of Puerto Rico. In 1998, I became the recipient of a special talent scholarship and left for Berklee College of Music, to work on my Bachelor's degree in Professional Music. While in Boston I was under the tutelage of Dino Govoni and Fred Lipsius, amongst other great professors. Since then, I have worked with many acts, in various musical genres, such as: Glenn Monroig, Victor Manuelle, 33 D.C., Mario Ortiz Jr., Tito de Gracia/Naoka Jam, Andy Montañez, PeeWee Ellis, Pedro Eustache, Humberto Ramírez, Marcos
Vidal and more. I am fortunate to have gained many experiences through my career as well enjoyed many highlights. Most recently my musical arrangement for Grammy® nominated group ¡Plenéalo! for song “La Novia Nueva” for was nominated for a Latin Grammy®. My major musical influences are Bob Mintzer/Yellowjackets, Richard Bona among MANY others.
