Jeremy A.

Casselberry, FL

I teach a variety of styles including finger picking, basic to advanced picking techniques, tapping, and jazz voicings.

I am proficient at all styles of music, however, I especially prefer acoustic finger picking.

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 bas
ic 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 beginning level students typically feel comfortable enough to play with other musicians confidently.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The In-Studio lessons take place in the living room seating and a guitar are available. 1 cat and 1 small dog kept separate during lessons.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide all of the necessary educational tools such as listening samples, and printed off hand outs. The student needs to have their own instrument, staff paper and a pencil.

Jeremy is incredibly knowledgeable in every aspect of music, I find myself learning much more than just the guitar! His methods make me feel comfortable with his teaching style and he's extremely patient with me as I'm trying to learn new chords, shapes and scales. I highly recommend someone who is ready to learn any type of instrument as he teaches all different kinds and someone who has become my friend over time! Thanks for everything Jeremy, I look forward to continuing learning!

Eric L.

Oviedo, FL

About Eric

Eric comes from a family of musicians. He began guitar lessons at age five as the Beatles were invading the American music scene. Growing up in New Jersey, Eric performed in rock bands until becoming interested in classical guitar. With New York City only a short bus ride away, he spent as much time as possible in the city, studying guitar with Russian born Classical Guitarist, Dr. Alexander Bellow, and Jazz Legend "Bucky" Pizzarelli. During this time he attended recitals of such notables as Andre Segovia, Julian Bream and John Williams. Being immersed in this musical scene inspired him to ma
ke music his life.

Eric earned a degree in Classical Guitar Performance from the Hartt School of Music at the University of Hartford, where he studied under the direction of guitar pedagogue, Richard Provost. While at Hartt and shortly after, Eric performed in numerous Master Classes for internationally acclaimed artists such as Manuel Barrueco, Christopher Parkening, Oscar Ghiglia, Michael Lorimer, and Carlos Barbosa-Lima.

Eric has taught guitar at the college level for over twenty years teaching on the music faculties of University of Central Florida, Rollins College, Stetson University, Bethune Cookman College, Florida Southern College, and St. Leo College.

Eric's experience includes performances with rock groups, stage bands, folk groups, classical ensembles, jazz combos, Broadway shows, operas, solo recitals, and concerto appearances. Eric has appeared hundreds times at Disney and Sea World as well as other venues around Central Florida.

Throughout the years he has had many unique experiences while performing, one of his favorites being the opportunity to play the MASH theme song for Alan Alda as well as other stars in attendance at a cast party for the show, Win, Lose or Draw at EPCOT Center.

Although he enjoys performing, Eric considers teaching music to be highly gratifying. The importance of giving students a good foundation with the proper technique and performance skills cannot be underestimated. When a student can play a song from beginning to end with style and confidence you know you've given them a gift that will offer them enjoyment for the rest of their lives.

I've had a great experience as Eric's student. He is highly knowledgeable as a guitar teacher and I have loved learning classical technique from him. And I'm kind of picky, since I already have a degree in music and am also a music teacher! He has really helped me broaden my skills as a guitarist and I can highly recommend him as a teacher for all kinds of guitar styles.

Damien is a very patient and moderately, laid back teacher. He will teach what you want to learn, yet give you suggestions on other avenues to approach.

I was a bit apprehensive about taking lessons online but through Skype, the teacher/student relationship worked out just fine. Damien is very patient and encouraging for a beginner like me and I felt that I accomplished much more in the first lesson than I could have hoped for.

About Justin

Hi, my name is Justin. I have passionately been practicing guitar for all most ten years now and I'm eager to continue passing my knowledge down to anyone willing to commit the time into learning guitar. Over the years now I've been proud to see my students achieve their personal music goals. I have, with great success, taught many students varying from those who couldn't tell you what a tuning peg is, all the way up to those trying to perfect Eddie Van Halen's harmonic fills. I am an extremely patient teacher with the knowledge needed to teach most styles of guitar playing.

Justin has been teaching my 14 yr old son guitar for the last month. He has such an easiness to his personality that he has quickly developed a great connection with my son. His love for music is genuine and I can tell it is spreading to my son. He is encouraging and friendly but still maintains reasonable expectations for commitment and practice. I couldn't be happier with Justin. I would totally recommend him.

Juli R.

Sanford, FL

Want to play your favorite hit tune? Let's do it! I guarantee to have you playing simple songs within a couple of weeks. In your lesson, we will set practice goals and equip you to achieve them. The keys are consistency and intentionality. 5 minutes a day of focused practice time is more valuable than an hour of aimless noodling.

I teach all the basic open chords and basic strumming and picking patterns. Ideal for singers who want to accompany themselves.

About Juli

Hi! My name is Juli, and I have the best job in the world! It has been said that "where words fail, music speaks." When you make music, you speak a language that transcends cultural, emotional, and age barriers and touches the soul. My passion is to help people to develop a level of proficiency that will enable them to be lifelong lovers of music.

I have a B.A. in music education, and have been teaching choir, musical theatre, and private voice, piano, guitar and ukulele for 8 years. My specialty is vocal technique, and I have experience working with singers recovering from vocal injuri
es (in conjunction with a speech therapist). If you want to sing pop, Broadway, jazz, or classical, I'm your gal!

I absolutely love teaching beginning piano, guitar and ukulele as well! While I do use method books to provide structure, I also like to get outside of them and use alternate teaching techniques to keep things fun.
