Kelly P.

Winter Haven, FL

About Kelly

I teach at a pace that the student learns while challenging them. I graduated Cum Laude from The Baptist College of Florida with my Bachelor's in Music Education. I graduated with Honors from Polk Community College.

*** Lesson Details ***
I can be strict but mostly laid back. I use the Essential Elements 2000 for Strings curriculum with a mix of Suzuki Method. After 3-6 months you will have learned the parts of the instrument, note names, a few scales and bow technique. I start by teaching the instrument and note names and fingerings to them then pitches and bowing.

*** Studio Equipment *
**
I will provide a stand to use and keyboard to hear pitches.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect them to have the books, stand, instrument, rosin, stand for home practice and tuner/metronome.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a very patient teacher, I love when my students say, "I'm understanding everything", I repeat 100 times until my students learn clear ideas and concepts. It's very important enjoy the class and have fun.

students will learn methods of improvisation, phrasing, scales, chords, rhythms, Favorite songs, fretboard mastery, and sound conception that are essential guitar techniques.

Many beginning guitarists have learned the basics of open and moveable chord shapes, but aren't sure how or why the individual notes within the chord work so well together, or the ways by which they can expand this chord knowledge to unlock the fret board of the guitar.

Scale study is a fundamental building block to guitar mastery. Accomplished guitarists use scales to add color, mood, depth and feeling to their playing.

Excellent Teacher.

I'm an experienced player, so I can't exactly say that he'd be good for someone who's just picking up a guitar. But he does an excellent job teaching technicality and musicality, which is something that many teachers lack these days. When I looked for a teacher I wanted someone who would help me better myself as a musician in a style I wasn't very familiar with. By musician, I mean someone who is not only technically proficient, but also very musical and a very good interpreter of music. So far he's helped me a lot in all of those aspects, while managing to keep a comfortable learning pace. I'd recommend him to anyone who really wants to push themselves musically.

Kevin M.

Davenport, FL

About Kevin

Hello! My name is Kevin, and I am looking forward to teaching you everything I know about music! I've been singing at Walt Disney World for over 22 years (and I still am currently) with the Voices of Liberty, the Dapper Dans of Main Street, and Four For A Dollar. I have a Bachelor of Science in Music Education from Penn State University. Even more than singing, playing the guitar, arranging for a cappella, and playing piano, I love to teach! Ever since I was a sophomore in high school, I've wanted to be a teacher of music in various capacities. My favorite aspect of teaching several private st
udents each week is that every individual student has a different story: What is it that you want to accomplish? Would you like to sing, play piano, or play guitar? Would you like training in music theory? Do you want to eventually have a career in music? Will this be a hobby for you? Whatever your goals are, I am excited to know your story.
