Nicole O.

Winter Park, FL

About Nicole

"To play wrong notes is insignificant. To play without passion is inexcusable." - Beethoven

I was five years old when I discovered my singing voice. My youthful curiosity soon blossomed into a passion for musical expression through voice, violin, piano, and guitar. My mission is to share the musical exploration that has enriched my life by fostering my students' desires to express themselves through music.

As a teacher, I focus equally on formal technique and artistic expression. Mastering correct form provides the foundation upon which a student’s capacity for the latter may grow. Tec
hniques used during lessons are designed to develop a holistic understanding of music through aural, visual, and tactile cues. These include ear training, sight-reading, improvisation and using visualization to navigate the instrument. Progress is evaluated by developing a set of goals specific to each student. I find that allowing students input in originating goals facilitates a cooperative learning environment and allows me to tailor lessons to a student's interests, strengths and learning preferences. Providing students with a plan to succeed inspires a drive to learn and sense of achievement. I encourage students to play their instruments daily. Through consistent practice, students will benefit from increased discipline, patience, creativity and self-esteem. Students are rewarded with the chance to share what they've learned at recitals held biannually. For the duration of our lesson, my students are in a private, nurturing zone of free expression. Join me in an exploration of personal talent and creativity!

Nicole has performed with the Rollins College Bach Festival Society Orchestra, under the direction of Dr. John V. Sinclair. She has also performed with the Florida Space Coast Philharmonic under the direction of Dr. Candler Schaffer. She is experienced as a session musician, recording vocals and violin at Wright Entertainment Group Studios (Justin Timberlake) with producer Will Baker (India Arie, Pink). She has performed as a soloist at the White House, Bob Carr Performing Arts Center, Amway Arena, and Hard Rock Live.

Nicole Omat holds Bachelor of Arts degrees (with honors) in Music and Anthropology, graduating Summa Cum Laude from Rollins College. A member of the Honors Program (top 2%), and one of nine Cornell Scholars in her graduating class, she is very grateful to have been awarded a full academic scholarship. Nicole pursued concentrations in Violin and Vocal Performance, as well as Ethnomusicology. Nicole served as co-concertmaster of the Rollins College Orchestra and String Ensemble for three, consecutive years, under the direction of Dr. John V. Sinclair. She was featured at Christmas Vesper services in a solo performance of Winter (The Four Seasons) by Vivaldi, at the Knowles Memorial Chapel. Nicole has studied violin with Joni Roos and Alvaro Gomez, protege of David Oistrakh. She has performed as a soloist with the Rollins College Gospel and Concert Choirs and studied vocal pedagogy and performance with Dr. Edmund Leroy and Dr. Lori Lovell. At Rollins, Nicole studied piano with Dr. Gloria Cook and enjoys playing classical, jazz, and Latin styles. Nicole has studied classical guitar for seven years and especially enjoys playing Latin American folk music and flamenco. Nicole pursued her love of world music in publishing her senior honors thesis, “Cultural Fusion of Music Constructs: A Look at Hybrid World Styles,” analyzing the effects of globalization on traditional, ethnic musics. She has published research in the Rollins Undergraduate Research Journal, where she also served as Music and Anthropology Editor for three years.

My 6 year old daughter took piano lessons for the first time for about a year with Ms. Nicole. She is positive, energetic and did a great job! My daughter could be rather demanding and she handled it well and shifted gears to make it a positive experience. We are sad to leave these lessons and hope to come back to Ms. Nicole in the future. We are cancelling for personal reasons not related to Ms. Nicole and her teaching. I highly recommend her!

Sharon H.

Orlando, FL

About Sharon

Been playing the violin for over 40 yrs. Started in elementary school and held the coveted "Concert Master" designation all through high school. Been playing fiddle since 1985. Twenty years experience as a dance fiddler, and the last several years studying swing and traditional Irish. I play in three bands, all different genres.
I consider myself so lucky to be blessed to be playing an instrument. It is one of the best kept secrets to life. This is a point I like to stress to my students. It enhances your mind, you can make wonderful friendships with like minded people, and constantly learn n
ew tunes and genres. It just keeps you young at heart. I love spreading the Gospel of music.I consider myself so lucky to be blessed to be playing an instrument. It is one of the best kept secrets to life. This is a point I like to stress to my students. It enhances your mind, you can make wonderful friendships with like minded people, and constantly learn new tunes and genres. It just keeps you young at heart. I love spreading the Gospel of music. I am very patient and will teach my students everything I've learned over the past 40 years.

*** Lesson Details ***
I give 30 minute and 60 minute lessons. I recommend 30 minute lessons for beginners. I teach classical techniques for holding the instrument. Scales and intonation work are important, and can be integrated into simple songs so as not to be boring. Teach sight reading and auditory learning. Auditory is more important as Music is an auditory art. I am easy going and teach what the student wants to learn as everyone is on different levels and has different ways of learning. I also teach violin chords, and applied theory as to improvisation for playing. All skill levels welcome.

I use handouts from several different music books and will tailor them to your skill level. I do expect my students to find some time to practice what I give them. I really want my students to get all the bang they can for their buck

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room/open area setup for lessons with music stand. Parents can sit in on lessons. Parking in driveway and on street in cul de sac.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Stand, and my instrument and books. Student must have their own instrument.

Sharon O.

Maitland, FL

About Sharon

Sharon O. has a deep passion for music. She is a music educator and composer who believes music can empower you. After receiving her Bachelors of Music and Certificate of Music Therapy, she devoted more than 35 years training young musicians and using music as a source of healing with those in need. She has been a spiritual performer of both voice and piano and continues to be very committed to sharing the benefits of music with others.

Here are a few key points that describe her music ideology and piano teaching method and why it has proven to be successful:

People like to play music
that they know and can relate to and to share music with others. They enjoy playing familiar melodies. Over the past few years, she has written and arranged hundreds of songs that are playable and accessible – and has watched her students' motivation level increase in leaps and bounds! There is rarely a struggle to practice at home, because the students enjoy practicing so much!

No individual fits into one learning slot. Generally, students have a mixture of learning styles and needs and Ms. O. has developed a method which is flexible and tailor-made to every student's needs.

Each student collects their favorite songs to play and makes their own songbooks, their love of piano grows rapidly while they develop their music reading and technical skills. Ultimately,Ms. O. has seen that most students start to become more curious and willing to learn and venture into new music that they do not necessarily recognize as time goes on.

Ms. O. believes that every individual can feel successful at the piano and when they study with her they will enjoy themselves and become more creative human beings.

Regarding young children....It is never too early to instill the gift of music ….early learning sets the groundwork for how children will view music for the rest of their lives!

Lessons should always be fun and engaging .

Ms. O. loves sharing music with others and develops as very warm rapport from the onset!

Nicholas M.

Winter Park, FL

About Nicholas

I provide instruction, assistance, and tutoring to all levels of Electric Bass Guitar and Music Theory. I can also teach entry level guitar as well.

I believe that that essence of music education should be fun, entertaining, and thought provoking, while at the same time providing a positive and charming atmosphere for the student to learn in, which invokes strong and efficient learning ability. Discussion and questions are always welcome, and I always work at the pace of the student,

It's my job as a teacher to have the tools to help enhance and nurture a student's musical ability in
their chosen area of interest(s), not oppress a concrete template method for all students without accommodation to learning patterns or tendencies of the student.

My lessons are set up to accommodate a student's skill level and learning. I adjust my curriculum to support the student's interests and goals to help them grow and further their abilities in music practice, and theory simultaneously.

--Studio--

The studio is a quiet, large room with access to a piano, and music literature for reference and study. Bass amplification is provided if need be. STUDENT MUST HAVE THEIR OWN INSTRUMENT.

--My Professional Background--

I have been a professional bass player for 8 years, and have been playing for 16 years.

I started out self taught as a bassist and guitarist playing heavier styles of music such as heavy metal and alternative rock when I was young. I eventually grew to adapt to more increasingly informative, and positive styles of music such as Funk, Jazz, and Latin/World music in pursuit of absolute proficiency on the electric bass guitar, and in music in general.
Currently, I can read and write music fluently, and have played in many Jazz Ensembles, Combos, Rock/Metal Bands, Cover Bands, Jam Bands, and the like over the last ten years as a bassist and backup singer. I have also arranged music for Jazz Big Band, and composed music for Solo Piano, Trio, String Quartet, and Choir in Classical method.
