Piano Lessons for Tampa's Every Mood

By Lisa F. - Tampa Piano Teacher

Through years of research, it is a well researched conclusion that studying piano increases intelligence. Everything from higher math and reading scores to increasing IQ's has been studied, put to the test via the scientific method and positively proven. Simply put, students who take music lessons do better in overall school performance. It is also well known that music influences mood. Think about all the emotions you had the last time you watched a movie and experienced the effects of the so-called "background music".

Yet, music has a
function that is far greater than positively impacting academic performance or setting the mood. Music can actually be used to change an emotional state from a negative one to a positive one. I have had many experiences witnessing this phenomenon. During the 1990's, I worked in several mental health facilities in Florida that served both inpatient and outpatient populations while also continuing to work as a part-time piano instructor teaching piano lessons in Tampa. My duties included leading both music therapy and psychotherapy individual and group sessions.

Using piano music via patient participation, I was able to help schizophrenic patients comply with taking medication and clinically depressed patients become stable and feel happier even when other traditional therapies failed! Listening to, singing and/or performing sad pieces of music then gradually playing happier music results in changing mood from that of sad to happy. It is amazing to witness and even more awesome to experience such changes in mood.

If playing piano music can be used to help chronically mentally ill patients function at a higher level, imagine the possibilities of what performing music can do for you! Sign up for piano lessons in Tampa today!

Lisa P.

Brandon, FL

I have taught piano for many years and studied piano since I was a child. I have a bachelors in music and have worked in a top classical studio in my background.

About Lisa

My Background in Music: My inspiration first started when I was seven years old and in second grade. I was pondering if I wanted to dedicate myself to the music field. A substitute piano teacher came in that day and played and my admiration decided me to pursue this ambition for my life work. I studied and played guitar and auto-harp as a child because of our lack of piano. The guitar was a gift and I played it for years and studied vocal music throughout school. When I was a young teenager I started playing with a group that I met in a barn and I was thrilled. Many other musicians have been part of my story and as a young person I studied privately with such greats as Michelle Barone Horsefield as well as with with studio musicians such as the Scott Steeleman Studio and ...

Lisa is an exceptional person, let alone teacher. I have had the privilege of having her as my Aunt, and writing and playing piano with her has always been a fond memory for me. She made it fun, and even when I struggled, she was able to lift my spirits with her positivity and her passion for music. As a teacher, she's able to explain things in different ways and cater to the individuality of the student, which I think is key to building a solid foundation when learning a new skill, and developing said skill over time. She has incredible drive, and I think any student who gets to work with her will excel, while having a good role model to aspire to!

Lisa is by far the most experienced and practical piano teacher I have studied under in recent times. Her teaching methods and relate-able knowledge of brain-muscle memory were keys in helping me progress.
Being a studio engineer who is learning to produce, the fundamentals which Lisa has taught me are critical. Thanks Lisa!

Harp · In studio
I started harp lessons when I was 8 years old, and neither my parents nor I ever thought about looking for another teacher. Pam Irwin's teaching style made it easy for me to learn many wedding songs, hymns, and classical pieces. This has led to numerous church performances as well as weddings and parties. I've been so blessed to have her as my teacher from the beginning all the way through the 12th grade. During my college freshman year, I won the talent show at Florida College playing the harp. She is well capable to take a beginner to the advanced level. She is patient, kind, thoughtful, and encouraging. I would not be the musician I am today if it weren't for her excellent teaching.

Nicole is a terrific instructor! This was my first time taking singing lessons, but Nicole was prepared to start from the beginning with me. She took the time to listen to what I was looking for out of these lessons and determine what my strengths and weaknesses were. Nicole allowed me to choose songs for us to work on, but was very willing to help me choose songs that suite my voice, challenged me, or were just fun songs to work on! I very much recommend taking lessons with Nicole if you're preparing for any performance or just want to develop your voice.

I have always thought of playing-by-ear as being mysterious and beyond the reach of most humans. I thought one had to be born with that ability. I was SO wrong. Osmond proved to me that this ability is within the reach of everyone. He de-mystified the whole process WONDERFULLY. When he revealed to me how easy the process is, and when I saw and heard myself doing what I previously thought was impossible, I cried ( tears of joy).

I am amazed at how rapidly my 6 year old daughter learned to play 2 of her favorite songs ( after just 4 lessons ). She is even adding some fancy flourishes to give her playing a professional sounding touch. Absolutely wonderful.
