Mike M.

Holiday, FL

In a typical lesson with Mike, the student provides his/her own guitar and Mike will provide some printed reference material, audio samples, practice CDs, etc. Mike's specialties included rock and blues, help with equipment selection and setup (general guitar maintenance, effects usage/signal routing, etc.), and music theory, including traditional notation and guitar tabs.

About Mike

Mike has been playing the guitar for over 35 years. For the last 15+ years he has played guitar with the modern worship teams at two different churches. For over 5 years he taught guitar at the local elementary and middle schools. And since 2005 he has shared his love of the guitar with thousands of school children as part of the annual Great American Teach-In. Mike has played professionally as a session guitarist for several musical theater productions and as a long-time guitarist in his church's praise band.

Mike holds a B.A. in Audio Recording and Production and worked as a radio DJ an
d music store manager for several years before moving into the technology sector. Mike has extensive experience as an audio engineer (FOH and studio) as well as video editing experience. During his 25+ years in the technology world Mike has been a corporate trainer, application developer, support consultant, and college professor, teaching I.T. classes at a local career college. Mike is constantly seeking new ways to merge his love of music with his technical background.

Mike's teaching style is a mix of the theoretical and the practical. He believes in providing a solid "book knowledge" (chord theory, music reading, tab,etc.) but framed in a fun and engaging way that motives the student to want to play (and practice) their instrument. This is accomplished by using songs and musical styles that appeal to the student vs. simply "going by the book" all the time. Whether teaching music or computer skills, Mike has been blessed with the ability to translate the technical into "layman terms" so that the student can quickly grasp the concept without getting hung up on the "geek speak."

As for how a typical lesson works with Mike, the student provides his/her own guitar and Mike will provide some printed reference material, audio samples, practice CDs, etc. Mike's specialties included rock and blues, help with equipment selection and setup (general guitar maintenance, effects usage/signal routing, etc.), and music theory, including traditional notation and guitar tabs.

Nicole C.

Clearwater, FL

During lessons, students will learn every aspect of guitar. Beginners will learn how to tune using multiple methods, string your guitar, reading guitar notation and tablatures. In-studio students can use acoustic/electric guitar and amp if needed.

About Nicole

Nicole began her musical journey in Long Island, New York when she began piano lessons at age five. While receiving training on piano, she joined her elementary school orchestra in the 3rd grade and quickly soared with violin. During this period, Nicole began learning music theory and the art of reading music. As a fourth grader, Nicole would go on to conduct and tune every instrument in her orchestra during rehearsal. She always competed and won many NYSMA competitions for violin while attending music seminars and workshops. It was then that her teacher realized she had a gift. Nicole c
ontinued with piano lessons and began teaching herself guitar. Later, after college, she bought herself a drum set and began to teach herself drums.
As an adult, Nicole studied to become an elementary teacher and worked in the New York State School Districts for over five years. Shortly after receiving her master€™s degree for Literacy Education, Nicole decided to attempt to share her passion for music. In 2007, Nicole opened a music studio in Holbrook, New York. Here, she refined her music teaching skills while establishing Nicolex Inc. Music Island as a leading source of quality music education. Her summer traveling music program allowed her students to experience live performances as well as create music groups with peers with the same passion for music.
Nicole now resides in Clearwater, Florida with hopes to spread her business as well as the joy of music to children and adults. She currently is the drummer for a local original rock band. In this band, Nicole writes songs, sings, plays piano, and drums (not all at the same time). Needless to say, she understands the importance that music has had in her life and wishes to ignite that passion in other music lovers.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching style is best labeled as kind but firm. I take my job very seriously and want wholeheartedly for my students to have music as a part of their life, not just a part of their day. I love to laugh and have fun but I will definitely expect my students to practice and complete any homework I assign and be prepared for the following lesson. Simply stated, music is fun and the love of my life, but if I still practice, you will as well. Otherwise, I always believe in teaching songs my students are interested in and will expand their musical skills. My experience as a public school teacher had enhanced my sense of finding individual needs of every student. Therefore, I always differentiate lessons to suit my students interest while teaching them the foundations every musician needs in order to be successful. My specialty is teaching a variety of instruments. I play drums, guitar, bass, piano, and sing as well. So, if one instrument is not for you, I can teach you something different without a problem. Long story short, friends, you are in good hands.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Full Service music room: Keyboard, Full drum kit, Electric Guitar with 30 watts Amp and Microphone/ vocal monitor.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can bring a 61 key Casio Keyboard for household to use for lessons for a small monthly rental fee. I have an Epiphone Electric Guitar with 30w amplifier. Can also bring microphone and monitor for vocal lessons.

*** Specialties ***
I have taught mostly Rock, Blues, and Classical genres for Piano, Guitar, Drums. Vocally, I specialize in R&B, Broadway, Pop, Top 100 and alternative/Hard Rock. I will adapt to your needs.

Norman T.

Lutz, FL

I have been teaching guitar for 23 years. I emphasize the details of good technique and reading music skills. You will learn and develop the basics so that you can progress to any style of music you would like to play. Picking and finger style guitar are both offered. Begin making music on the guitar today!

About Norman

I have recently located to the Tampa, Florida area and I live in Lutz. I have enjoyed teaching and helping students of all ages for 24 years in achieving their goals in learning to play their instruments. Educated at Columbus State University with a Music Education degree, I teach many instruments including piano, guitar, including Classical style, banjo, saxophone and clarinet. If you would like to start on the trumpet or trombone, I can help you as well. I specialize in working with the first time beginner, giving them a solid foundation in instrumental technique and musical knowledge, as
well as helping those who have some experience on their instruments and who are looking to advance.

*** Lesson Details ***
My goal for every student is to experience learning their instrument in an environment that is both encouraging and rewarding. I exhibit patience with the student knowing what it takes to develop new skills and I work hard in helping each student feel at ease in expressing themselves. I have used many different materials over the years, depending on the individual student's needs and desires to play their music. I do stress learning to read music notation so that you can approach with confidence any piece of music that you would like to play. With the proper dedication, every student can enjoy making music in a short period of time, getting better and better along their musical journey.

*** Specialties ***
I have used many of the published methods for all of the instruments over the years. I am always open to any approach that will work for any given student.

Top notch teacher.

Norman is an excellent teacher. I have been with him for just over a month now and I have came leaps and bounds. It's my first instrument that I have tried to learned and I can read music and play duets with him. He's friendly and very knowledgeable of the material also. I would say that in a couple months I will be dazzling my friends and family. So if your thinking about an instructor then Norman would be a great investment.

William B.

Dunedin, FL

The guitar is an incredibly fun instrument. It takes only three chords to unlock hundreds of well known songs. I have been helping many people learn new songs and techniques for over ten years, in turn I have made many friendships, I have traveled, and gained a good amount of knowledge and experience to pass on to you. The lessons I offer will be unique to each student based on your interests and pace of learning.

About William

Welcome to my profile! My name is William B. everyone calls me Will.

I have been teaching mainly guitar and songwriting here and there for about ten years. I started playing guitar seventeen years ago at age eleven. I began writing my own songs at age thirteen and haven't stopped since. I am an artist above all things, and meditate frequently for continuous inspiration and insight. I graduated high school in 2005, now I am a full time student at SPC. I am going for my A.S. in Music Industry Recording Arts degree. It has been said a good teacher will remain a student. With me you will learn
at a pace that is comfortable for you, yet challenging and encouraging. I would like you to have a pleasant experience, which is why patience, tolerance, and communication are very important to me. To sum it up I am an artist, musician, writer, student, and teacher, eager to learn more, and inspired to pass it on.

Please feel free to call Takelessons for any questions you may have!
