Jeremy A. Winter Garden, FL

About Jeremy

I am an accomplished performing musician that has experience playing many different instruments in multiple styles. I believe first and foremost that learning music should be fun and exciting with an emphasis on self exploration and communication. It's these qualities in my own musicianship that have helped me grow a true love of music and have pushed my career forward as a performer. *** Lesson Details *** In lessons I use a shifting curriculum that is made to work with the needs of each individual student. I firmly believe in the importance of learning to read music and learning some basic music theory, in my experience this helps the student grow from being able to reproduce the music of others to eventually developing a unique style and sound. After three to six months my ...

We have loved our teacher and this home-guitar arrangement. It is great for a busy family. Jeremy knows how to get my son to pay attention and really enjoy the lesson. We are very happy! I asked my son what rating to give Jeremy and he said "is there any rating bigger than excellent?"

Jeremy has made music fun for my 9 year old son Ryan. Ryan thinks that Jeremy is so cool because he is able to play various instruments and is sharing his knowledge with him.
Garine A. Winter Garden, FL

About Garine

I am a music educator. I received my Bachelor’s in Music Education from the University of Central Florida in 2011. My higher education started in the Fall of 2006 when I began attending Daytona Beach Community College. My two years there were spent fully engaged in all activities. I finished my GED requirements while participating in many ensembles like the Ormond Beach Symphony Orchestra, Daytona Beach Community College Concert Band, Brass Ensemble, Falcon Pans (steel drum ensemble), Pit Orchestra for musicals, and Choir. All of these ensembles helped me increase my awareness of many different teaching and directing styles. I enjoyed participating in the college’s annual Medieval Yuletide Feast while playing the trombone, tuba, and singing in the choir. These experiences augmented my ...

Great personality and very upbeat. Could use a little more structure and I maybe a book for the new students. Probably very good with students that have some experience already and can improvise.
Chase G. Windermere, FL

About Chase

Born in Atlanta, GA, I began performing vocally and on saxophone, at the young age of 7, and it has taken me all over the world. I discovered a joy for teaching music through creative and fun methods at Lee University in Cleveland, TN (2004-2008) I currently live in the Orlando, FL area and am outgoing, funny, and optimistic. My experience, as a finalist on American Idol, in 2007 ignited a passion to not only perform but to teach. With over 8 years of private teaching experience, I understand that learning happens differently with everyone. Whether you are just beginning or are wanting to reach the next level in your musical career; I am here to help motivate you and give you the tools to reach your personal goals. *** Lesson Details *** My teaching method is laid back, ...

I sang in chorus for almost two years when I was in high school. People always considered me an okay singer. Never thought to try private lessons. I've been playing guitar for 10 years. Most people consider me an excellent guitarist. About three months ago started playing more acoustic guitar songs with vocals but the vocals just weren't where I wanted them. So I decided to give voice lessons a shot.

Chase has been an excellent instructor. He quickly identified my major problem areas and gave me exercises to work on during my first lesson. I started doing the exercises on my commute to work a few days a week. Now I'm only three lessons in and my singing abilities have improved dramatically. When I sing for my friends they are blown away at the progress I've made.

I wish I would have started lessons years ago when I was in the chorus!

About Dennis

With a bachelors degree in music from Rutgers University, I began teaching guitar over 20 years ago. I have recorded with Larry Coryell and many other artists over the course of my career. My teaching style is direct and to the point. We will go through all the necessary theory of music and apply it to the fretboard to unleash your creativity.

With certification on ProTools, I have recorded and worked with Jon Anderson(Yes), as a producer and engineer. I can teach you the art of recording and editing for music production. *** Lesson Details *** Fretboard fingering positions. Music Theory. Scales and modes. Fingerpicking. Hybrid Picking.

Excellent Teacher

Dennis is an all around great teacher. He is easy and comfortable to work with, but knows exactly how and when to get things done. Most importantly for me, Dennis was able to let me know which things I needed to work on to better my musicianship while also helping me figure out how to utilize what I had already accomplished to achieve new goals. As a metal player getting into jazz improvisation I had some really strong skills and many things that needed serious work. Dennis was able to help me use my strengths from previous experience to become better at something entirely new.
Mindful of tradition, but more interested in innovation, Dennis has a vast knowledge of modern styles, chord progressions, chord shapes, and scales you can't just learn from any guitar teacher. You can hear it on his record; Dennis is just as much of an individual in his playing as he is in his teaching. Unfortunately due to relocation I can no longer take lessons from Dennis but he got the ball rolling for me into new worlds of guitar playing and musical thinking that has been incredibly valuable to me.

I decided to re-kindle my guitar playing skills after putting down the instrument for several years and not knowing what results to expect. I was amazed to find my ability to play quickly returning while taking lessons with Dennis. He was patient, encouraging and always professional and courteous. I am now practicing every day and continue to progress. I would encourage anyone seeking a skilled and talented instructor to sign up with Dennis. He has versatility with many different styles of playing and accomplished at them all.

Take Lessons From This Guy!

I was fortunate to meet Dennis and partake in six months of intensive weekly sessions which were no-nonsense. My instrument of choice is the acoustic and electric guitar.

Dennis adds a shade of color to the audible realm of musical expression that invites all practitioners to give ear to Dennis' command of the guitar. Ask him what he's been working on lately and he will show you something; it's more than enough to inspire you to keep learning and discover your own musical voice.

Dennis was humble in sharing his credentials and is a continuous student of learning himself. He clearly shows no bias and imparts his knowledge to anyone willing to learn.

Due to relocation, we could no longer meet up in person for lessons. But now that Dennis is geared up to provide teaching services online, I can still effectively take lessons regardless of location.

Fernando is a highly recommended teacher for drums. Beyond his kindness and his supportiveness, both of which are very genuine and aid in increasing the rate at which you grow (no anxiety from lessons, much confidence), his care pushes you to set goals and to keep setting goals to succeed. Underlying the foundation he sets for drums is a foundation for music -- he prepares you for all styles, so that you can be an adaptive player, but not only a mechanically skilled one; one with feeling and purpose. He is a great drums player, musician, teacher, person: take lessons with him; he will be infectious!

These are my true thoughts...
Im here to say that he is an awesome teacher, not only because he is nice, or because he is friendly. But because he really helped me to learn a lot of things in Photography. He helped and still helps me understand what photography really means, and he taught me a lot of new things. He is also really patient and has a WONDERFUL personality. He became a friend, not only a teacher. And that is awesome because it shows that he really cares. I love how his classes are one on one, and I feel that I've learned so much because of this. I thank you so much Fernando! YOU ARE AWESOME!

I really recommend.
