Featured Tampa bay Piano Teachers

Raymond L

Instruments:

In 1975 I received a scholarship to study advanced studies on the musical field. I studied with the Teachers: L. Egúrbida, J.S. Fraticelli, E. Frasson, A. Romero, and A. Díaz. In 1980 I finished my musical studies at the Conservatory of Music of San Juan, Puerto Rico and graduated MAGNA CUM LAUDE, with specialization in Musical Education and Performing Arts. I was the first native of Curacao Netherland Antilles to study classic Guitar and Musical Education in Puerto Rico. I have played as principal guitarist in renowned musical groups such as Los Ecos and The Polyglots, in several bands, and as a soloist I have given numerous recitals and concerts in the Antilles and abroad. I was selected to be part of the special group responsible for developing a plan for interviews and petitioner’s evaluation to study at the Conservatory of Music of Puerto Rico for the academic year 1980-1981.I also received a scholarship to continue more advanced studies at Aspen Music Festival and School in Aspen, Colorado. In 1980 I obtained, recommended by the Administration of the Conservatory of Puerto Rico, very high acknowledgements including THE NATIONAL DEAN'S LIST OF AMERICA and the AMERICAN BIOGRAPHICAL INSTITUTE. I worked as a Music Educator at the Social and Pedagogic Academic Institute teaching Pedagogic and Didactic Principles to while simultaneously teaching classical and popular guitar at the Curacao Netherlands Antilles Cultural Center at all levels and ages. I was the co-founder of the Curacao Guitar-Society (GISO), at present “KITARA KORSOU, N.A.”. He also was the vice-president of the PRODIM (PRO Integral Musical Development) Foundation. In the past I have recorded several records with various well-known musicians. In June, 1984 I gave a series of guitar master-classes. My autodidactic guitar method “MELODIC GUITAR” for beginners from 7 years of age and older, is the first guitar method translated from the Papiamento language into the English and Spanish languages. During 2007 and through 2008 I had a position as a guitar, bass-guitar, piano, and Music Theory Instructor at “THE LATIN MUSICIANS INSTITUE” in Puerto Rico.

David S

Instruments:

I'm a very eclectic and passionate lover of music who wants to share his love of music with others. I began playing at 7 years old and have been playing for 18 years now. I grew up in a music teaching environment with my father and I've aspired to teach all sorts of music, no matter what facet, to anyone willing to learn and love music. Throughout middle and high school I excelled in band and jazz band and went through multiple workshops on both piano and euphonium learning both classical and jazz music. While in grade school, I also took a liking to local music scenes and other musical endeavors outside of the academic environment and began to glean from those influences as well. Upon graduating high school, I was accepted into the University of North Florida and graduated with a BA in Jazz Studies. 

Tara O

Instruments:

Fourteen years ago I realized my calling to teach while on a missions trip to Mexico. The Lord has blessed me on my journey to become a teacher since that time. I am excited to have my B.A. in Music and an A.A. in Education, and I'm now pursuing my B.A. in Special Education with Trinity Baptist College. As a beginning teacher, I gain my experience through performing at my church on the piano, and participating in handbells or choir. In high school I had competed in UIL competitions for three years. When I'm not teaching I am helping out with my church in music ministry, youth group and VBS. I teach from my home apartment (upstairs) overlooking the St. John's River.

More Information About Piano Lessons

We suggest students purchase a piano or keyboard for their lessons, as they will need to practice every day in order to develop their skills on the instrument. We recommend a keyboard with weighted keys, as this will feel most similar to an actual piano. An actual piano will have 88 keys, but most keyboards start from 65 keys and go up from there. Common keyboard brands found at music stores are Yamaha, Casio, and Korg. Many keyboard sets will come with a case, stand, headphones, and may even offer recording features for recording your own playing.
Piano lessons in your home offer a convenient option for learning to play an instrument. 90% of our students take their lessons in their home, and this is a practical and time-saving way to learn the technique of the instrument. Think of all the time you can save by not having to transport your student to a class every week! In-home lessons are structured in the same way as a studio lesson, and in addition, a younger student may feel more comfortable at an in-home lesson, as they are already familiar with the surroundings.
Students at different levels of their piano playing will require different aspects of piano playing to be covered during their lessons. Beginners will start out learning the basics, intermediates will be applying the foundations to more complex compositions and advanced players will want to hone a few specific skills or styles. The basic things that beginner students will learn are things such as; learning the notes of the piano, posture and playing technique, scales and chords. At this level, students will learn simple scales and chords, such as major and minor chords, and start to put some of the basic techniques into practice via 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. Advanced players can improve sight reading, improvisational abilities or work on genre specific techniques, such as Jazz or Blues. Throughout, students can develop their musical ear, reading and theory.
Learning a new musical skill as an adult is a great way to keep your brain fresh! We have many adult students actively taking lessons with us, and this actually represents around 50% of our student base. Our instructors will offer an individually tailored lesson plan to the needs of an adult student. You will learn the technique of the instrument, specific repetoire suited to your skill level, and learn how to read music and sight read.
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.
