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!

As a parent of a 14 year old flutist, I was apprehensive in doing online flute lessons initially but am glad that I did. We chose Pam for our on line lesson teacher based on her high level of experience. My daughter needed help with her audition music and Pam was able to work with her to get her ready with our tight deadline that we had. Pam even took it upon herself to look into all the material that was needed for her audition and scanned the missing docs that I overlooked. She is always thinking ahead and preparing material for the next lesson. I would highly recommend Pam for a private lesson teacher, I am glad we found her!

Pam is a wonderful flute teacher. While I was studying with her in high school, I developed a love for music and the flute that will stay with me for the rest of my life. She has a keen ability to push her students to excel, while also encouraging them and nurturing their passion for music. It has been several years since I've studied with Pam -- I've since graduated from college and moved to the West Coast -- but the lessons I learned from Pam have stayed with me, and will stay with me for many years to come.

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 came to Gonca as an adult learner and with absolutely zilch in the way of musical background. Gonca has been very patient with me, and impressed me with her ability to frame a lesson in several different ways to help me to understand a topic or skill, for example, sharing articles and cognitive tricks related to training when she heard me asking about the "why" of things often. She is incredibly talented, rigorous, and passionate as a teacher and as a musician. I recommend her to others at every opportunity.

Gonca was one of the best music instructors I had! As an adult learner, I had some hesitations taking classes. However, with Gonca's passion,encouragement and patience, I enjoyed the classes greatly and felt more confident about my skills. I would recommend her to any one I know at every age group.

Cello · In studio
I started playing the cello when I was 14 under Gonca's instruction. I am now 25 and proud to have been her student as long as I was. I was blessed with the fortune to study under a teacher with so much compassion and passion for teaching, as well as the wherewithal to tailor her teaching as I grew into an adult. Now I enjoy performing, and exploring the cello's repertoire as my skills continue to improve.

Tampa, FL

A warm welcome to my prospective students!

EXPERIENCE AND QUALIFICATIONS MATTER!!

Be sure to look at a prospective teacher's education and musical background. Some people teach piano who can play it, but their main instrument or subject may be something other than Piano.

I am a professional pianist and piano instructor with degrees in Piano and over thirty years teaching successfully in major institutions and those I founded. Piano is my passion and it has been my entire career focus....and nothing else! It's a fabulous instrument!

Students can expect me to be organized and positive in my approach. The needs of the student before me dictate my materials and approaches, because each student is a unique individual. So I spend time assessing a students needs in the first meeting, then tailor the program to meet their interests and abilities.

If you already play the piano, I will help you to play better, more professionally, and with greater expression. Your ...
