Lisa P. Brandon, FL

I am a published song writer. I have been on radio and have written over 90 songs. I worked in a classical studio for ten years.

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!

Adam G. Oldsmar, FL

About Adam

I started playing guitar at the age of 12, teaching myself before I moved on to taking professional lessons. At 15, I began performing in front of live audiences with a rock band, and loved every minute of it. Ever since then, I have been performing and recording, as well as writing/arranging music. I was privately tutored extensively in Music Theory, Harmony, Arrangement and Composition. I have played many stages over the years in various cover and original bands, from acoustic to rock, to blues, metal and southern rock. I feel that I can offer much from the viewpoint of a working musician in addition to your basic instrument lesson; from instrument set-up tips, to getting your own sound, to how to effectively use effects and performance tips. Personally, I enjoy rock and metal music ...

Week 4

It's only been week 4 and I'm startin to learn to play songs. As an adult learner I thought I would have much more difficulty but Adam has not only tailored the lessons to what I am interested in learning but is always watching and listening to how I play. He give instant feedback and helps me adjust on the fly. I couldn't have asked for a better instructor to tea h me to play guitar. Thanks Adam for the current and hopefully many future lessons.

Mary is a very great music instructor, she takes her time with you until you get a hang of what you are practicing with your voice. She is really patient and does not rush you into anything you are not comfortable with yet. Mary is a very good instructor, and I suggest her to others.

Mary taught me piano and vocal lessons for many years. She teaches a variety of different musical styles and makes her students feel confident in themselves as they learn. She teaches in such a way that is easy to absorb and provides children with incentives to encourage them in the process. If you are looking for music lessons that will also enrich your life, Mary is the teacher to go with.

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.
