Michael first sang on stage, at the age of 3, the same time that he began learning piano. He went on to explore multiple instruments throughout his early years and also developed as a vocalist for theatre and concerts, including competing in Star Search in the mid-80's, the forerunner to American Idol. Michael earned his Bachelor of Music Education from Troy State University in Troy, AL and Master of Music in Composition from Central Michigan University in Mount Pleasant, MI, where he studied with world-renowned composer, Dr. David R.

Michael has a lot of experience and is very knowledgeable in his field. He really helped my son with mallets. It was nice to find a percussion teacher who was knowledgeable of all the different percussion instruments and able to teach them all. In addition, his studio was very nice and well equipped.

About Jill

Jill holds a Bachelor's degree in Music Education and has master's work in choral music. For many years she has taught private and group music lessons to all ages and many varying styles of singing and instrumental music. Her lessons are unlike the ones she remembers from childhood; Jill's lessons are full of creativity, fun and excitement. It is amazing how students improve with each lesson. Jill brings more than just technique to the studio, she strives to find the best in each student and then concentrates on improving each individual's strengths and then delves into ways to correct the weaknesses. Since Jill is a vocal soloist, instrumentalist, accompanist and director, she knows what it takes to prepare and rehearse and therefore she makes it clear which concept the student ...

Jill is a wonderful teacher. She is patient and creative in teaching, good at communicating her musical ideas with children. My son progressed a lot under her instruction. We really hate to say goodbye to her because we have to leave America. Her classes are part of our best memories here.

One awesome teacher

Jill is one of the hidden jewels you hear people speak of; in Jill's case she is the hidden jewel when it comes to music teachers. Her never ceases to amaze in her abilities and there are many. I've seen her multitask a group of children during a performance, all playing different instruments simultaneously, without missing a note of her own piano playing. She's a born leader and teacher, a consummate musical artist. Everything she does is golden, truly! She was the first teacher who was able to teach me rhythm in my left hand, I'm really not musically inclined, yet she was able to teach me how to play the piano pressing me pass my own ability. It's nice to sit down and be able to play something at the piano instead of just wishing I could. When it comes to small children, she's a hoot and so patient, all the kids love and adore her. My own grandson took lessons from Jill and gain such confidence in his ability he is now learning to play the cello, he simply loves music. Jill instills confidence in children and adults. She has a 'yes you can' attitude and it flows into her students. She's a winner and a true gem. You'll not regret having Jill as a teacher.
Nate C. Oviedo, FL

I've had a drumset for over 25 years and have known what I'm doing with it for almost 20. I teach the basics of rhythm and am primarily oriented toward rock drumming. I prefer using a method book called The Drumset Musician which helps not only learn how to play beats well, but to think musicially and so prepare drummers for being able to play in a band.

Because of the nature of true beginner drum lessons, you do not need to have a full drumset to get started. It is preferred once you've gotten some of the basics down. At that point, you'll know too whether you want to make the investment or not and I can help you figure out what will work best for your needs.

About Nate

I've been teaching private lessons for over a decade now. First I taught lessons as a self-employed college student, and then my during graduate studies I worked through a music academy in Dallas. I've been playing piano for over 20 years and guitar and drums for 15. I've been in various bands, personally recorded several albums of my own compositions, and have taught students from ages 7-17 consistently. I teach part time as a high school teacher in the area and I enjoy helping young people learn, whether it's guitar, piano, drums, or even psychology *** Lesson Details *** I'm very laid back when it comes to lessons, but I do expect students to spend at least 90 minutes weekly practicing so our lessons will be productive. I generally use either Alfred or Suzuki for piano lessons, and

I can help!) *** Lesson Details *** I like to bring a positive environment to my teaching but also want to help push you so you can reach your goals! I want to get to know you on a personal level so I can help relate ...

Great Teacher

Autumn is a great teacher. I am learning a lot from her in a very short period of time. When I struggle with things at home during my practice time, she always has the fix during my next lesson. Very patient and supportive. I would highly recommend Autumn.
Paul M. Orlando, FL

I can teach everything from how to hold the sticks and hit the drum using proper technique to reading drum charts and understanding notation, (and even some music theory if you like). I have experience playing multiple genres, including rock, jazz, and funk, and I have a wealth of drum books to draw from, from having taking lessons on and off from various teachers since age 10.

About Paul

I began taking drum lessons at a very early age and continued on and off with various teachers for the better part of twenty years. I will always be grateful to them for the knowledge and wisdom they imparted on me and for the positive influence they have had on my life, especially the ones with whom I really bonded and who were essentially mentors to me while I studied with them. As a teacher, there is no better feeling than seeing a student make progress and knowing that you helped him or her along the way, while at the same time not taking the credit, as it is always the student who has the harder job, who must do the real work. I always feel tremendous satisfaction when a student masters a difficult rudimentary exercise for the first time, or is able to execute a challenging ...

I love working with Paul

Paul isn't just a teacher, he's a collaborator. He allows me to direct where I want to go, but he points me in that direction and works with me to figure out the best way to get there. When I played other instruments, lessons were nerve-wracking and I was always relieved when they were over. Now I look forward to my lessons every week, and I don't want to leave when we're done! Working with Paul is a very positive experience, and I'd recommend him to anyone interested in learning to drum.
John O. Orlando, FL

I teach primarily how to play drum set. This involves learning how to play different drum beats utilizing coordination between the hands and feet. I provide play along music so students can use this to apply the skills they are practicing. I also teach rudiments which are the building blocks of playing the drums. I teach hand drums such as congas and djembe along with percussion instruments such as shaker and tambourine. I also offer drum tuning services for $25.00. I use techniques taught by a customer drum builder to get the best possible sound from your drum set.

About John

I started playing the drums at the age of ten and have been playing for thirty-three years. I played snare drum and bass drum in symphonic band in junior high and high school. I played in the Drum and Bugle Corps while in the Air Force. We marched in parades and won several awards for excellence. I have played in three Christian bands and one rock band. I have also played drum kit and percussion in church for several years. I completed the Drum Set Fundamentals course with Berklee College of Music in 2012. I am currently playing for a Christian rock band and we play live at different venues in Central Florida. I am currently enrolled at Valencia Community College working towards my music performance degree. This real world experience of playing with live musicians in different settings
