Berthe H

Instruments:

My name is Berthe, I started taking piano lessons at the age of four and performed for the first time at the age of 8 at the Assembly Hall of the American University of Beirut.

I'm a very motivated cellist and private teacher who loves developing the talents of my students. I have had the opportunity to study at some of the worlds best schools of music including: Indiana University's Jacobs School of Music, University of South Florida's School of Music, and was accepted into the Longy School of Music in Boston. At these institutions I have had the chance to study with some of the worlds leading solo and orchestral cellists including: Helga Winold, Emilio Colon, Janos Starker, Scott Kluksdahl and Lowell Adams. In 2010 I was given the opportunity to join the St. Petersburg Opera Orchestra as their Assistant Principle Cellist where I performed in productions of Marriage of Figaro, Sampson and Delilah, Die Fletermause, and other various operatic works.

Constance R

Instruments:

There is nothing I like better than to teach and also to play the violin and the piano. It has been my pleasure to do this for 50 years and to have played in a number of orchestras. At Bob Jones University I received a B.S. degree in Elementary Music Education.  In Dothan, Alabama I taught in the Dothan School of Music and also a private school. In a private school in Ft. Lauderdale, FL I taught K-6 elementary music classes and also private lessons. In Largo, Florida I taught at the School of Performing Arts. I am extemely qualified to teach with a warm and caring approach. One year I volunteered to teach violin in a YMCA string program to disadvantaged students. The highlight of my career was being part of a professional "Broadway quality" orchestra and putting on 19 performances in a row for a televised Christmas Extravaganza in Ft. Lauderdale.

I am a dedicated instructor who loves working with children and adults. I earned my Piano and Flute Teaching, as well as Performance Diplomas from The Royal College of Music. I have collaborated with numerous singers, wind and string instrument players all over the Caribbean in Classical and Jazz performances. I have taught piano and flute students who have gone on to play in bands, churches,orchestras and other music organizations.

Gian-Francesco F

Instruments:

I was born in the United States but I grew up in Italy where my parents are from.  I was given my first classical guitar when I was 3 years old.  For the next 9 years it was just another toy in my room but I became very familiar with the instrument. At the age of 12 I started my formal music training, first with a foundation of piano and then moving on to my favorite, the guitar.  I took weekly classical guitar lessons for the next four years from renown teacher Giovanna Verna, in Casamassima, Italy.  This included learning solfeggio, how to read music aloud first and then by playing it, attention on posture in the classical approach, working on mastering a collection of material from the european classical guitar academic repertoire, and performing it twice a year as a culminating stage of the learning experience for that semester. My first experience playing with a large group of performers was when I joined my church choir as one of the accompanists.  My new guitar instructor, Fabio Nanna, focused on folk-style strumming techniques, rhythm guitar, and all the basic chords including the painful barre`. In my last years of high school I joined my first rock band and therefore started playing the electric guitar.  My third guitar teacher, Antonio Macino, taught me everything about blues pentatonic movable scales, power chords, and how to solo over the basic rock song structure.  Along with recording in the studio, playing in front of people with my own band was one a new wonderful experience and one of my favorite of all times. I have been performing live with bands or solo since 1992 in Italy, California, and Florida.  I released three albums which are available online under Gianfranco Ferri: Luce(2002), Ridgewlker(2009) both instrumentals, and Strega(2005) with my band of the same name.

More Information About Piano Lessons

If purchasing an acoustic piano is not an option, we recommend that students look to buy a keyboard or digital piano for their lessons and practice. When buying a keyboard or digital piano, look to purchase one with 61 or more keys, as well as one with weighted hammer action. Having more keys, as well as weighted keys will most resemble the responsiveness and feel of an acoustic piano. Typically, keyboards are a cheaper option, they take up less space, are portable and can be played with headphones. Some of the most popular brands of keyboard or digital piano are Yamaha, Roland and Casio.
In home lessons are what 90% of our students request. Not only does this provide a convenient means to study music, but we also notice no difference in the quality of lessons done in home or in studio. They are typically structured the same. The main benefit of in-home lessons is the reduction in travel time to another location, and additionaly the student may be able to focus better in your own home since they are familiar with it. Piano lessons in the home offer a practical choice for your family for learning the skill of playing a musical instrument.
There are several different, but vey important elements to becoming a good piano player. It takes time to master the basic skills that will set you on your way to excellence. For beginners, the lessons will focus on elementary piano knowledge and technique, such as learning all the notes of the piano, hand and finger techniques for playing, learning scales and chords, as well as some music theory; reading sheet music, chord charts etc... These basic skills can then be applied to simple songs. Students with these foundations in place can expect to cover things like, diminished chords and other chord types, sight reading, playing more challenging compositions and learning the 7 piano modes - Ionian, Dorian, Phrygian, Lydian, Mixolydian, Aeolian and Locrian mode. Lessons for advanced students might cover topics such as improvisation, glissando, or the study of a specific genre of playing or composer, such as Jazz piano or Johann Sebastian Bach.
For adults who are looking to learn to play the piano, we recommend that they do so with some clear goals in mind. Maybe you want to learn to play some of your favourite songs, pass an exam or write your own music? Whatever the aim, our experienced teachers can help unlock the skills necessary to make those goals a reality. It can take time to develop the techniques and co-ordination required to play the piano to a competent level. However, playing the piano is a great stress reliever, keeps you mentally active and can help with your hearing and fine-motor skills.
Learning to play the piano as a child is a fun, rewarding and vastly beneficial to their overall development. Children can develop their motor-skills, dexterity and coordination through technical piano playing - learning scales, chords and correct fingering. Young students can also develop their concentration, listening skills and ability to master complex thought processes through theory, repertoire and student-teacher feedback. Learning to play the piano can also be character building, such as instilling a hard-working attitude, developing self-discipline and confidence through practice, taking exams, enter competitions or performing recitals.
