Joel J.

Tampa, FL

About Joel

Hi! I have been teaching for over seven years and am no stranger to the stage. While majoring in music performance at the University of West Georgia, I performed with jazz ensembles, guitar quartets, and percussion ensembles. I also performed many solo classical guitar recitals. The only thing I love more than performing, is teaching and sharing music.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons generally include three parts with content depending on your level of experience: technique, repertoire, and theory. I am an enthusiastic although laid back teacher, however I do push my students in order
for them to realize themselves as a musician. I like to have fun with lessons because music is fun and I enjoy it. I hope you do too!

Literature used in lessons:

New Dimensions in Classical Guitar for Children, By Sonia Michelson

The Christopher Parkening Guitar Method

Diatonic Major and Minor Scales, By Andres Segovia

Guitar Aerobics, By Troy Nelson

John Brimhall's Complete Theory Notebook, by of course John Brimhall

*** Studio Equipment ***
The In-Studio lessons are taught in the living room with 3 guitars, 1 bass, and an amp. Seating available. No pets.

I've had several different musical teachers throughout my life and I must say that I never really enjoyed any of them. Classes always seemed boring, far too structured, and like work instead of play. Once I started meeting with Joel though, my perception was greatly changed.

I love learning from Joel because he is enthusiastic and excellent at communicating music theory and technique. It never really feels like we have an exact structure that we have to follow but he always manages to keep me progressing. Regardless if I come in one day and just feel like jamming or if I want to raddle my brain with music theory all lesson, Joel is prepared and happy to do either.

I will highly recommend anyone to Joel that would like to learn to play in the classical style. He keeps the fire alive, truly loves his music, and is very passionate about it. These are the keys that bring beauty, creativity, and fun to the part of music, studying it proficiently, that can be frustrating or boring.

After a decade of failed teachers and being solely self taught, I couldn't be happier that I found a great teacher like Joel.

Nicole C.

Clearwater, FL

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, drum kit, Acoustic/Electric Guitar, 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 acoustic/electric Spectrum 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.

He is an excellent teacher! Just because you play drums doesn't mean you can teach drums. My son has shown so much growth working with Glenn. He is truly a great teacher and I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Great Drum Instructor !!

Great Drum Instructor!! He has a true passion for teaching and identifies quickly with his students.

My son has been taking lessons from him since the age of 13 and he learned more in his first year than most kids learn through many years of instruction.

He is a personable, friendly and talented professional !! I would highly recommend him for anyone!

Christina is a highly skilled musician who invests of herself into the lives of her students. She has worked to incorporate my daughter's love of jazz music into her piano lessons, while educating my daughter about other music styles and broadening her interests at the same time.

Christina and I were a good fit. I was reluctant to find a teacher on line, but she turned out to be a pleasant surprise. She's easy to work with, she's patient and her instructional explanations are a monumental plus. I think this will be a long lasting relationship....I highly recommend this young lady.

Christina is an excellent teacher. She is very detailed when
explaining how to play a song in the correct time signature.
I like the fact that she does not move forward until I have
learned where my problem areas are; for example timing.
I would highly recommend Christina as a piano teacher.

John is the best instructor that my son has ever had. My son is an all state classical guitarist 3 years in a row and it is due to John and his fantastic teaching ability. My son who is now a senior in high school has been playing guitar since age 7 but had never picked up a classical guitar until just before 9th grade and he is one of the best classical players in the state and he gives all of the credit to John Demas for giving him the tools necessary to be a all state classical guitarist. If you want to become a much better guitarist, take a couple of lessons from John, he is the best in town.

I've had the pleasure of playing with John several times. He is a consummate musician and teacher. In addition to being an excellent classical guitar teacher, his mastery of the bouzouki is equally impressive.

As a guitar repairman, I see a lot of John's students in my shop. We require customers to play their instruments when they pick them up to check the repair work that was done to their instrument. Without fail, John's students demonstrate a real facility with guitar and a good working knowledge of music.
