Hallie C. Tampa, FL

Why does music sound the way it does? Why do you feel certain emotions when listening to a certain piece of music? Take some lessons and find out! I teach everything from the most basic of the basic how a scale works, to atonal and experimental music.

About Hallie

Have you always wanted to learn how to play an instrument, but never knew where to begin? I can help you learn your instrument, and learn how to play the music that you love whether it be flute, piccolo, violin, viola, or cello. I can help you enjoy music. Having grown up in a musical family with my mother a professional violinist, I have been exposed to the joys of music since childhood. I learned how to play percussion and string instruments from when I was six years old, and later joined the high school band playing flute. I loved playing flute and piccolo so much that I decided to take this as my career and went to Interlochen Arts Academy where I excelled in my performance. I later went to Prague Conservatory and Czech Budweiss Conservatory and played with the Prague Film ...

Hallie is friendly, enthusiastic and very encouraging, I look forward to each lesson because I know by the end I will feel great about what I achieve during that time.

I feel like my playing has progress so much further than when I was attempting to teach myself. As a shy adult beginner, Hallie's fantastic attitude makes is easier for me to learn as I don't feel as nervous as I normally would.

Amy N. Wesley Chapel, FL

Foundational theory skills to include note values, pitch relationships, and chord structures.

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 private 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 ...

Amy has developed a positive bond with my daughter and is skilled at teaching piano.
I was skeptical that my daughter (she was 10 when she began) would advance much with only 30 minute lessons once a week. I was wrong! Amy initially focused on the fundamentals, while slowly introducing my daughter's popular pop song requests. This balance (including lots of practice) has kept my daughter's interest as well as progressed her skills way beyond my expectations.
Amy has been very accommodating, flexible, and easy and pleasurable to communicate with when unforeseen schedule challenges have arisen.
The learning atmosphere in Amy's home is conducive, comfortable, and welcoming. My daughter enjoys seeing Ms. Amy weekly to show off what she's practiced and anxious to learn more. My visits during the lessons are relaxing ...sitting on the living room couch adjacent to the piano.
I'd recommend Amy N. for anyone interested in a patient and talented music teacher.

Ms. Amy is Wonderful!!! Great teacher!

I have two kids learning piano with Ms. Amy, 3rd & 4th grade. They have completely different personalities.

Ms. Amy's patience and enthusiasm continues to make learning fun for both my boys while teaching/motivating towards their individual ages/styles.

Very fortunate to have found Ms. Amy.
Mary H. San Antonio, FL

A former voice student never wanted to study theory until He decided to take a crash course with me the summer before applying to study music at a University. You are wise to begin before! Piano study compliments Music Theory more than any other instrument. I always include a little with piano lessons but lessons solely teaching theory can be adapted for a student's needs/interests. Voice students can request that theory be included but it usually means the lesson time needs to be extended.

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).
