Featured Plant city Piano Teachers

Ronnie Z

Instruments:

Hello! I am a highly energetic and passionate music educator from the central Florida area. Over the past 10 years, I have worked with a wide range of instrumental students in and out of the classroom. My primary focus is percussion (contemporary and orchestral), but I am proficient on several other instruments as well. My main goal as an educator is to help students understand the fundamentals of music at a higher level and fine tune their skills on their chosen instrument. I also strongly support creativity in music and enjoy helping students find their own path whether it be through playing or writing music.  

Nick S

Instruments:

I am a very motivated instructor who loves sharing my love and passion for music.  I graduated from Glenwood High School in 2004.  I then went on to Western Illinois University where I studied jazz on trumpet.  I also went to Lincoln Land Community College with a Jazz performance major on trumpet and piano.  I taught choir at Lanphier High School during the main choir teacher's medical leave.  I played at Walt Disney World in 2005 as a fill-in on trumpet.  I have traveled across the country and internationally as well.  I have opened for and performed in major national acts across the country.  My teaching career started in early 2001, including private instruction in piano, trumpet, and voice.

Loni L

Instruments:

I am a 22 year old who recently graduated with my BS in Biology and BA in Psychology from the University of South Florida in Tampa, FL. During my college years, I worked as a cognitive neuroscience researcher and a tutor. I am very passionate about learning, and as a result, have always enjoyed teaching others what I have learned.

Gregory d

Instruments:

A native of Florida, I recently graduated from the University of South Florida in Tampa under the tutelage of Scott Kluksdahl, an internationally renowned cellist and pedagogue. My other primary cello teachers include Loran Stephenson (National Symphony Orchestra), Helga Winold (Indiana University) and John Kaboff (Arlington, VA). I have participated in masterclasses with David Requiro and the Baumer String Quartet, Noreen-Cassidy Polera, Rhonda Rider, Jan Müller-Szeraws, Joshua Gordon, Carol Ou, Rupert Thompson, Robert Jesselson, Ross Harbaugh, Rebecca Penneys and Norman Fischer. As a strong advocate of new music, I have actively participated in numerous student composer concerts that have presented new and viable works from USF's esteemed composition program. I have also participated in the Apple Hill Chamber Music Festival (2012 and 2013) and the annual Tennessee Cello Workshop (2009). I was the principal cellist of the 2009 National Philharmonic Summer String Institute under the direction of maestro Piotr Gajewski and I was recently the Assistant Principal of the University of South Florida Symphony Orchestra. Throughout my high school career, I taught and performed actively as a guitarist and pianist in many varying ensembles ranging from improvisatory ensembles to rock and roll groups.   As a motivated instructor, I focus on building depth of experience and knowledge regarding music and all of its aspects in students of all ages. Furthermore, I proclaim the importance of the fact that musicians create and communicate directly through their presentation of musical works at any level and on any instrument.

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

We recommend that students get either a full size piano, or a weighted keyboard for their lessons. It is very important to set up a practice schedule every day. You can purchase a basic keyboard at a local music store or an electronic store. Some students may also wish to rent a piano if they do not wish to invest in buying one right away. Digital keyboards offer a good choice for the beginning student because they are portable and easily stored in your home. Keyboards will start at 65 keys at the smallest amount and increase to a full size keyboard of 88 keys. The most common brands of keyboard are Casio, Yamaha, and Korg.
Music lessons in your home offer a convenient option to learning music! Most of our students request in home lessons for this reason. As long as you have a piano or keyboard in your home, then you should be all set to start your lessons! Children who have never played an instrument before may feel more comfortable studying in their own home, as it may be less intimidating than going somewhere else. In home lessons decrease the time and gas money spent traveling to a different location.
Whether you have an interest in learning to play Rock, Jazz, Romantic or Classical piano, our piano teachers can help develop your playing through one-on-one lessons. Our teachers can also prepare you for exams, recitals and performances. For beginners, the basics will be taught. This will include learning the correct posture, hand position and fingering technique. It will include learning the notes and scales of the piano, learning basic chords and chord progressions, developing the musical ear and learning to apply these things to simple songs. Intermediate players will work on more exotic chords and playing such as diminished chords, 7th chords and applying these things to more challenging compositions. All students can develop their sight reading, ability to interpret sheet music and chord charts. Advanced students can study a particular composer o genre, can develop their repertoire, or work on their improvisational skills.
Many older students are fulfilling a long standing ambition by taking piano lessons. Some students may have had lessons when they were younger and want to re-learn and others are simply looking for a new hobby. Whatever the aim or reason, there are many benefits to piano lessons for older students. Learning the piano can keep you mentally active, help maintain dexterity, improve your hearing and stimulate the brain in a creative way. Older students can develop basic technique and music theory quite quickly, as their concentration, thinking skills and self-discipline are more advanced than that of children.
Piano is a great first instrument for children who have never studied music before. Our instructors specialize in teaching younger children, and will develop an individual lesson plan for your child. The youngest age that we recommend starting piano lessons is age 4. The instructor will be able to teach your child to read music, beginning music theory and musician skills, and how to develop a love for playing the instrument.
