Dan is a fantastic instructor! I am a 27 year old whom had never touched a violin in my life before Dan. Now I own a violin, practice every week, and can read basic music sheets. He is very knowledgeable, patient, funny, and flexible. If you're looking to learn a new instrument while having a good time, look no further my friend. What are you waiting for?

Need someone special to teach you...?

Having never even held a violin in my life, I was apprehensive about trying this, but Danut is not only an expert at playing the violin and has several different methods to teach different individuals, but is also flexible in conforming to what is best for each student. And, most importantly (for me) is that he is v-e-r-y patient. LOL I may never be a concert violinist, but I am achieving my goal of learning to play and don't think this would be happening with anyone else. Thank you Danut!

An Encouraging Mentor

I took lessons with Danut for around two years and found him to be an excellent teacher. He is a knowledgable and encouraging instructor, and he never falters in reminding me to be patient and practice slowly.
My lessons with Danut have greatly increased my understanding of violin technique and practice. I improved greatly under his instruction and I would sincerely recommend him to violin students of any age or level.

Berthe H.

Largo, FL

I teach the very beginner to the very advanced levels. combining piano technique with music theory and some history and analysis of western music so the student will understand what he's doing and be able to interpret in the right style of the music he's playing.

About Berthe

My name is Berthe ( pronounced Bert). At the age of 4, I began taking
piano lessons. By age 8, I was performing for the first time at the
Assembly Hall of the American University of Beirut. In 1978, I attended
the Faculty of Music of the Holy Spirit University of Kaslik/Lebanon,
where I completed a PhD. in music education and a higher diploma in
piano.
From 1982 to 2000, I taught piano, music theory, music education,
music appreciation, and the history of and analysis of Western music
at the University of the Holy Spirit of Kaslik (USEK), The University of St.
Joseph (USJ) and the L
ebanese University (UL).
I recorded my first CD “Rehna Meshouar”, a collection of Lebanese
songs for children, intended to introduce music to kids. I took part in
many educational activities and devoted myself to the promotion of
musical education to the children. In 1995, I published my first book
“Do-Mi-Sol”, that focuses on a method specifically designed to teach kids
Solfege (oral theory and ear training).

From 1998 to 2001 I was in charge of training aspiring music teachers
at the Ecole Normale in piano, music education, psychology of music
education, and the philosophy of music education.
By the year 2000,I was appointed Director of Studies and the Academic
Secretary of the Music Faculty at the Holy Spirit University of Kaslik.
During my tenure, I employed teachers, advised students, and
developed artistic and academic programs. It was my responsibility to
organize studies and examinations, as well as plan, execute, organize studies and examinations, as well as plan and execute
concerts, conventions, and competitions. I have lectured all over Europe and the Middle East, as well as published many articles concerning music and music education.
Since moving to Florida in 2007, I am a professor of piano instruction at St. Petersburg College. I also give private lessons in my studio. I have served as a judge several times at the Bay Ridge Piano Festival.

*** Lesson Details ***
Our musical journey has a smooth and relaxed progression, establishing enough command of the keyboard to allow each student to develop naturally. To make the piano a richer and more rewarding experience, I enjoy introducing a variety of musical styles, from popular favorites to timeless classical pieces, according to the student’s musical tastes.

I believe in a dynamic and responsive method of teaching. I see the student as an active participant in their own learning. Our lesson feels pleasant and joyful, so the student will always delight in playing the piano and creating music. Based on the student’s age and demands, I employ several methods of teaching that lead to the development of observation, concentration, creativity, self-confidence, and personal expression. I encourage and support my students regardless of specific talent, as we move toward an effective and beneficial musical experience.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room: baby grand piano, additional seating for parents.

*** Specialties ***
I teach Classical music to beginners and advanced students and follow the active method of teaching where the student is not just a receiver but participate in his own learning.

Ms. Berthe has been our teacher for more than 4 years now. Our children look forward to each class & have a special bond with her, as do I. She is a loving, encouraging teacher, who has provided our children with the knowledge they need to play piano, read music & even love practicing each day!

Outstanding Piano Instructor

She is attentive, listens to what the student needs; the instructor is outstanding because unlike other instructors I've taken from, she gives me what I want to play and I learn basics which are essential. Other instructors have a set way about teaching and does not take the student in mind. I LOVE this instructor! Thanks for asking....

Joe M.

Saint Petersburg, FL

Learn to read Treble and Bass clef notation, as you begin to explore melody, harmony, and bass lines while playing songs you know, (and maybe some you don't.)

About Joe

Whether you want to have some fun and learn to play and sing a few tunes, enough to be the 'life of the party' or to really knuckle down and learn a lot, Ace Guitar and Vocal Studio will hit the right note. It is also the place where you'll find a caring, positive and inspirational music teacher who will help you to deepen your musical knowledge, and advance beyond your current level of understanding and ability on the Guitar, Bass, or Voice.

Thinking About Music Lessons For Your Child?
Visit www.aceguitarandvocal.com now for Summer Session Special Offer!

Joe has logged many years of pr
ofessional performance experience with musical groups of all kinds and is now the owner of Ace Guitar and Vocal Studio, located in St. Petersburg, Fl. since 1998.

In addition to a stint in the 90's as Orchestral Guitarist aboard "The Monarch of the Seas" with Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, Joe served as Musical Director in 2001 for a Tampa, Fl. production of "Hair", and as Guitarist with numerous Broadway Show road companies such as "The Bernadette Peters Show," "Hello Dolly", and "A Chorus Line." Joe continues to serve the St. Petersburg area as a music instructor in addition to performing locally.

*** Lesson Details ***
Singing Lessons:
Learning to use your own voice is fun! To develop your voice, and your ability to hear musically, you'll learn ear training and vocal exercises that are proven methods of developing a good musical ear and a strong vocal presence. Want to learn to sing in harmony with others live, or with yourself on a recording? You can do that! If you're a performer, you want to be called back to play again, right? I have personally played many solo gigs over the years, and will provide insights as to how to operate, and comport yourself in a professional manner.

Guitar Lessons:
What do you do or want to do with your guitar?
Beginning guitar lessons focus on proper methods of tuning the guitar, fundamentals of music, and an early start in the development of correct technique. Most new guitar players want to strum accompaniment chords to back themselves up singing songs. Learning to play chords and melodies leads students in the right direction musically.
Taking lessons with a teacher who can guide you in both endeavors makes sense, and at Ace Guitar and Vocal Studio, there is no additional charge if you want both guitar and voice lessons. Of course, you can always take just guitar lessons or just singing lessons.

Learning to play the guitar is a rewarding and fun experience for anyone to enjoy.
Maybe you already can play some guitar, and would like to learn more about how to play solos and improvise melodic lines on your guitar. I can help in that department as well. Ace Guitar and Vocal Studio is the place where you will learn about the relationships between scales and chords, develop technical ability, and begin to cultivate a melodic vocabulary, or 'bag of tricks.' In other words, you can ROCK!

Blues Guitar Lessons:
I led a local Blues, Rock-a Billy, and Soul R&B band in the 90's in Florida, "The Paradise Blues Band", hosting countless beach bar dates, blues jam nights, opening the St. Petersburg Blues Festival in 1993 at the Bayfront Arena, Festival of States Straub Park appearances and we were the first band to play at William's Park Bandshell outside for St. Petersburg's first 'First Night' New Year's Eve.

Solo Jazz Guitar Lessons:
Improvization of melodic solos and how to create your own arrangements of Jazz Standards is a favorite area of study for me, and if you're interested too, we can delve into this area of guitar playing. Learn tunes by Wes Montgomery, Miles Davis, and other Jazz greats.

Classical Guitar Lessons:
Is Classical Guitar your passion? Learn to play works by the great composers of classical guitar music, such as Sor, Carcassi, Segovia, Haydn, and others. It's a personally rewarding, satisfying experience to play beautiful classical guitar. If performing for money is your objective, a lot of solo classical guitar gigs at nice restauratnts, hotels, and weddings are out there. I'll get you playing the best selections for these gigs.

Bass Guitar Lessons:
Bass players will learn to read and play the great tunes of the work of artists like Donald 'Duck' Dunn, Paul McCartney, and James Jamerson. Learn to play Rock, Blues, Motown, and Pop styles.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Learn in a comfortable, state of the art music studio equipped with a ProTools computer-based digital recording system, an incredibly large library of printed music in book form, as well as an extensive selection of digital music files.
You'll find Keyboard synthesizers with weighted keys, pro-level microphones, sound system and musical instrument amplifiers, making your learning experience at Ace Guitar and Vocal Studio realistic and fruitful.
Weekly lessons are often supplemented with short video presentations that arrive via email for you to watch and review as often as you like.

*** Specialties ***
Online lessons available via Skype. Blues guitar specialty.
I also teach Classical and Jazz as well as Rock and Country pop styles.

Joe is a real professional talent and teacher. He is extremely patient and thorough with beginners like me. He takes time to cover basic guitar instrument basics, guitar music theory, scales, notes, etc. He is very flexible and will always go over lessons that require review with the student. Being new to instrument lessons I feel very comfortable with Joe's suggestions for me personally for areas that require practice. His videos are very informative as well as other documents regarding reading music, sessions, clefs, etc. His ability to relate his professional experiences into the lessons make the experience that much more valuable. I would highly recommend him as a guitar teacher.

We have been using Joe for guitar lessons for several years. My oldest Son started with Joe and also participated in his Rock Shop events. Although he is no longer taking lessons, he was playing the guitar last evening and I asked him what song he was playing? It was his original piece and it sounded excellent. The lessons with Joe really paid off. My youngest Son is currently taking lessons from Joe and we are confident that he too will be able to write and play his own music in the future. Joe is very flexible with our changing schedule and always follows up regarding our appointments. We highly recommend Joe to families with kids of all ages.

Great overview of the blues and classical history

I took lesson with Joe Mcintosh for a little over a year with the intent of leaning the basics of guitar playing and specifiaclly the blues. I got a lot of practical information and knowledge from Joe in various aspects of music and its history. I thoroughly enjoyed the lessons and the value it carried.

Joe is a very accomplished player and very patient with his students. I would highly recommend him for anyone with any skill level.

When you first meet Tony you sense immediately his passion and love for music; this comes through in his teaching style and attitude. Our 2 daughters (ages 13 and 11) have been taking lessons from Tony for about 3 months and we are definitely seeing improvements in their abilities. He has a knack for challenging them without them really knowing that's what he's doing--he pushes (gently) on them to reach their potential. Our girls enjoy taking lessons from Tony and look forward to seeing him each week, they practice without being asked (most days) and look forward to learning more interesting and challenging music. I would absolutely recommend Tony as an instructor for children or adults.

Tony has been teaching my 8 year old grand-daughter, Nevea, for about 6 months. Tony knows how to effectively teach younger children and has the patience needed to know the correct learning pace that each student can deal with. Nevea loves it when Tony will occasionally accompany her with the guitar. I sit in on most of the lessons and enjoy listening to the interaction between teacher and student.
I would recommend Tony as a teacher for students of any age.

Tony is great! He helped expand my range and over come the enormous amount of stage fright I battled for years in just a small amount of time. His lessons helped establish my music on a more professional level and broadened my picture of the music industry. I wouldn't recommend anybody else! He is very motivating and inspirational, and you will definitely grow through his lessons.
