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.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide everything needed during the first lessons. After which the student shall provide a music stand, tuner, guitar, and all literature.

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.

Piano lessons with Jim are first and foremost fun. For the beginner, Jim gets the student playing easy songs right away and then progresses at the student's pace. As the student advances, Jim will introduce the student to easy classical, pop and new age piano music. For jazz enthusiasts, Jim teaches how to play jazz from a "fake book" and improvise. For rock and pop, Jim teaches how to learn songs from a CD where there is no sheet music. For advanced players, Jim can coach the student through the music of Bach, Beethoven and Mozart and prepare for a college auditions. Jim can also teach how MIDI and recording works and the student can even make a CD or MP3 of their own creation.

Rose R.

Tampa, FL

About Rose

I graduated from the University of South Florida where I received my BA in Theatre performance & Communication with a minor in Dance. In 2011 I finished studying Music Recording at St. Petersburg College, where I focused on Singing/Songwriting. I trained at NYU with the Aquila acting company in classical theatre, and I also trained with TVI Acting studios in Los Angeles in Film and television.

My Music and Performance experience started when I was 6 singing in choir, school productions, and taking piano lessons. I continued on with group ensembles, musical theatre shows and later on
touring with the Spanish Lyric Theatre in Both English and Spanish in throughout Florida after college. I started working with various agencies in florida and became SAG eligible through working on a featured role as a dancer on the movie "From Justin to Kelly" filmed in Miami. Being part of the Actor's Studio at the University of South Florida created the foundation for me to then move to New York and study with the Aquila Classical Theatre company through NYU, Dance with the New Amsterdam Studio in am off-off Broadway dance production, and then move to LA to train with TVI Acting Studios. While In Los Angeles I signed with Avalon Artists Talent Agency and worked as an actress and model for various print jobs and commercials.

In 2007 I returned to Florida and spent the next few years working with various Talent Agencies on commercials, Industrials, print jobs, HSN projects, theatre shows, short films, and started to focus on Music, songwriting and recording. I returned to school and attended ST. Petersburg college MIRA Program (Music Industry Recording Arts) where I focused on Songwriting Performance and trained in voice, theory, songwriting, recording, and formed a duo called "The Rose and Zeb Duo." We Co-wrote together and recorded our first Demo Cd "Let Go" which was feature at the CD release event At the Yoga Village Studio in Clearwater, FL. We performed at local events throughout the area with our music.

Now I am continuing the process of Songwriting on my own for my next CD and developing other creative projects which I enjoy teaching others including art projects, cooking, baking, creating beauty products, and tutoring. I am quite diverse in the skills that I have obtained and I take a great interest in helping you as the artist develop your own style as well. I wish you luck in your journey!

*** Lesson Details ***
I like the combination of relaxed and goal oriented. I like to get to know my students and learn about about expectations and goals they have for themselves. Then I set up a plan that will help them achieve their goals and get them closer to what they want from their lessons. I take into consideration their interest, style, and help them to find their unique learning style

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.
