I teach students of all ages and levels. All styles from classical to popular music are taught in my studio!

I currently teach students who are in Alfred, Faber, Noona, and Hal Leonard Student Piano Library Books.

*** Lesson Details ***
I instruct children as well as adults ranging from beginning to advanced levels in the art of playing the piano. I teach various styles of music including standard classical repertoire and popular pieces. Through a creative, fun and individualized approach to teaching, my students also learn ear training, sight reading, music theory, piano technique and music history as it pertains to the pieces they are currently learning. After one month, beginning students can expect to have learned how to play one piece of music of their choosing and one piece of music chosen by me. After a few months of studying with me, they can expect to have gained basic music reading skills.

The very first lesson was awesome! My 5 yo was already excited to learn piano, but after her lesson she is even more psyched to go again! Lisa taught on her level, made it fun with age-appropriate games, and really tailored the lesson to my child. I don't remember piano lessons as a child being that fun. So far I highly recommend her!

Amy N.

Wesley Chapel, FL

Preferred method for beginners: Alfred Basic Piano Library

About Amy

I had my first piano lesson when I was five years old. I performed my first piano solos for audiences at school events. I joined the keyboard team at church when I was thirteen years old. I quickly learned to improvise and accompany. It was exciting to discover that I could study piano in college. I earned my way by accompanying voice and instrument choirs, rehearsals, lessons, and recitals. I enjoy helping other people excel, so I chose a teaching degree over a performance degree.

In 1991, I graduated with my bachelor of music degree in piano pedagogy. I immediately began teaching p
rivate and group piano lessons, building my studio over fifteen years to reach nearly 600 students ages five to seventy-five. I accompanied community choirs, local vocal artists, and students performing on other instruments. I performed as a substitute for church choir directors and accompanists. I was employed as a music director and organist for seven years.

I achieved my Music K-12 professional teacher certification with the State of Florida in 2007. I teach elementary classroom music for the District School Board of Pasco County. I continue to perform as a professional accompanist and serve on the piano faculty at the Patel Conservatory at the Straz Center for the Performing Arts in Tampa.

*** Lesson Details ***
I teach beginning students to read music. I teach students to play piano successfully. Reading music is a step-by-step process. I like to begin at the beginning. Using an age-appropriate All-in-One course from Alfred Publishing, we begin with the basic layout of the piano and learn to navigate the 88 keys. If you absorb and apply the information quickly, we move along quickly. If you need a little more time to sort it out, we take all the time you need.

My piano lessons are structured around the student's interests and abilities. Whether you are looking for a fun hobby or a place to launch your musical career, our time together will guide you to your goals. I am aware of physical and cognitive developmental stages and am able to present material in a suitable format for any student, adult or child.

*Special note to parents of children with unique needs: Piano lessons are a fantastic way to provide your child with focused one-on-one time while learning new skills. Playing the piano incorporates hand-eye-brain coordination, reinforces reading skills, provides opportunities for personal achievement, and teaches self-discipline through accountability. With my experience and training in Exceptional Student Education, I am able to personalize piano lessons for students with physical and cognitive challenges.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room w/ f/w keyboard and seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
My students need to have at least a 50+key keyboard/piano in their home.

Norman T.

Lutz, FL

I have been helping beginners and other more experienced musicians to learn to play the piano for 23 years. We can start from scratch and advance through five levels of piano methods. I have used various published methods over the years depending upon the experience and age of the student. I emphasize fundamental techniques of piano playing and music reading. A good piano player can eventually play any style he or she would like to focus on. It is never too late, you can begin to learn to play piano today!

About Norman

I have recently located to the Tampa, Florida area and I live in Lutz. I have enjoyed teaching and helping students of all ages for 24 years in achieving their goals in learning to play their instruments. Educated at Columbus State University with a Music Education degree, I teach many instruments including piano, guitar, including Classical style, banjo, saxophone and clarinet. If you would like to start on the trumpet or trombone, I can help you as well. I specialize in working with the first time beginner, giving them a solid foundation in instrumental technique and musical knowledge, as
well as helping those who have some experience on their instruments and who are looking to advance.

*** Lesson Details ***
My goal for every student is to experience learning their instrument in an environment that is both encouraging and rewarding. I exhibit patience with the student knowing what it takes to develop new skills and I work hard in helping each student feel at ease in expressing themselves. I have used many different materials over the years, depending on the individual student's needs and desires to play their music. I do stress learning to read music notation so that you can approach with confidence any piece of music that you would like to play. With the proper dedication, every student can enjoy making music in a short period of time, getting better and better along their musical journey.

*** Specialties ***
I have used many of the published methods for all of the instruments over the years. I am always open to any approach that will work for any given student.

Mary H.

Tampa, FL

Lessons and curriculem are tailored to the students abilities and interests. Traditional note reading and/or chord chart playing, classical or popular music with improvisation skills can be pursued.
However, beginners should understand that there are skills everyone needs to begin with to progress. I incorporate duet playing to enhance beginner songs and to teach ensemble playing at all levels.
Most of my students pursue piano for their own enjoyment or for ensemble,church and social gatherings. However, because of 2 years of piano study at the University level, I am very comfortable with those who wish to prepare for competition and advanced study.

About Mary

About You for Take Lessons

I have enjoyed the challenge of assisting music students for over 30 years with ALL kinds of styles/literature/repertoire . My classical training doesn't limit me because of my participation in Broadway, contemporary, folk, pop music and sacred music styles and love for jazz and gospel,too.

I create a course of study to fit individual student interests and needs. My relationship with my students is a two-way street; I often learn from them as we explore their interest in God's wonderful gift of music!

Teaching at various private schools™, including theater
school and directing both contemporary praise bands and traditional church choirs has provided enjoyable contrasts for me.

Before teaching teens and adults, I taught elementary music in public schools for 10 years and trained university interns, followed by work as a vocal graduate assistant at the University of South Florida. I hold both a B.A.in Music Education and an M.A. in Vocal Performance with Voice, Choral, Music Education and Piano Pedagogy emphasis.

I have adjudicated for the Florida Vocal Association Solo and Ensemble Festivals and the National Association of Teachers of Singing Student Auditions. Former students are pursuing careers as performers, composers, music teachers and music ministers ..........and singing to their babies!

*** Lesson Details ***

Piano Study

I provide a variety of instruction: Classical, Traditional and Worship Chords/Chord Chart approach with Improvisation.

Lessons and curriculum are tailored to the students abilities and interests.Note reading and/or chord chart playing, classical or popular music with beginning improvisation skills can be pursued.
However, beginners should understand that there are skills everyone needs to begin with to progress into any style.

I incorporate duet playing to enhance beginner songs and to teach ensemble playing at all levels.
Most of my students pursue piano for their own enjoyment or for ensemble,church and social gatherings. However, because of 2 years of piano study at the University level, I am very comfortable with those who wish to prepare for competition and advanced study.

I prefer to teach students ages 7 & up.
For Younger Students: I offer Music Enrichment Piano lessons in the summer, with a more play-like approach to music readiness activities; such as movement songs developing steady beat, rhythm awareness, finger dexterity and form.

Vocal Study

Vocal students often come wanting to sing the current Pop or Rock songs they sing along wit . Although I will use these songs for competitions or fun pieces, these popular songs often don't lend themselves to vocal study very well. Even Pop and Rock singers study with the classics of Jazz, Pop and Broadway to develop their voice. I am best versed at literature from Classical, Broadway, Classic Pop and Jazz, Folk, Traditional Sacred and Contemporary Christian Styles.

We are beautifully and wonderfully made in such a way that certain foundational, physical aspects of singing will help everyone. I teach the foundations for a physiologically correct technique that enhances every style. This has helped all singers, including those who are experiencing discomfort when they sing.

Singing is as natural to me as speaking but I wasn't always this way. That's why I love to help anyone become comfortable or better at expressing themselves through singing. Vocal students of all levels, beginning to advanced, are welcome.

Singing is a very individual thing and I approach each student uniquely. I have multiple experiences and styles to draw from.

I prefer to teach lessons to age 11 & up but will work with younger students if they are ready.

Vocal students can receive music reading training if they desire it, but since 30 minutes is a minimum for developing physical foundational techniques and music selections, lessons would need to be 45 minutes or an hour to include vocal sight reading.
I love helping students expand their ability, whatever their starting point. Musicality is even more important than a display of difficult music, so I take time to encourage expressiveness.

Our initial session,
I am interested in learning about each student's personal tastes, and any past experiences and goals. Then we will proceed to explore their instrument, whether it is their own voice or the piano.
A student's goals and resources will influence my choices from a wide variety of curriculum that are beneficial for steady progress. I will collaborate with them to choose musical selections, incorporating their goals and tastes.

___________________________________________________

Enjoying the ability to express oneself through music is of primary importance. While challenging my students to steadily grow in their capability, their appreciation of compositions and ability to communicate them; I also encourage their feedback to assess what works best for them.

I love helping students expand their ability, whatever their starting point. Musicality is even more important than a display of difficult music, so I take time to encourage expressiveness.

Older students need to be able to focus on developing technique and accept the home practice involved to learn ( and in the case of piano "read" ) and expressively sing/ play their selections.

Adult students are self directed and I accept their self pacing for home practice. But where parents are involved, I discuss a practice plan and encourage it. However, a student should never skip a lesson because they didn't practice. We all need a jump start sometimes.

Materials: I will discuss the need for curriculum with students before purchasing items.
Curriculum is chosen based on the students goals. There is a $2 monthly fee for piano students who will benefit from the sequential music games offered online through my teacher account.

Nadia K.

Spring Hill, FL

I have been playing the piano for 15 years and teaching piano for 8 years. I teach theory, note reading, playing skills, and listening skills. I teach beginner to advanced. Teaching is my passion and I try to pass that passion to my students.

About Nadia

Going to University of South Florida with a full scholarship.
Majors: Finance
My lessons consist of an individual approach to each student, since I know that everybody learns differently I come up with a teaching plan that fits each students individuality.

I began tutoring when I was a freshman in high school. I went through the international baccalaureate program in high school that included honor and AP classes. I have the knowledge and ability to tutor; biology, mathematics (algebra, geometry, pre-algebra, algebra II, pre-calculus, calculus, business calculus) , English, Russian, pia
no, computer knowledge, and history.

Other things that I teach or can help improve in:
Meditation (hypnotherapy, deep relaxation, breathing techniques)
Life Coaching (help organizing your schedule, reaching a goal, improving yourself)
Mixology (I have experience working as a bartender and managing a bar so I can teach and improve your drink mixing skills)
Exercise (I have numerous students who I help exercise once a week or even on a daily basis)
Computer knowledge (excel, word, access, powerpoint, and quickbooks, as well as website design: online and html)

*** Lesson Details ***
My lesson starts with me finding out what the student knows and what he needs help with. I ask a few questions to help me direct the lesson so the student can gain the most knowledge. I always make sure that the student has goals and that they know what steps need to be taken to reach those goals.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have my own transportation.
