I am able to asses the students current level of capability, understanding, and musical goals and tailor a curriculum to suit the specific needs and desires of the student. In terms of younger students who are first discvovering their interest in music, it is important to develop a basic foundation of understanding in terms of reading, writing, and communication with other musicians through the application of time tested teaching methods forcing the student to apply what they have learned in weekly "missions." For intermediate to advanced players, I'm able to help them to identify and subvert sticking points through the application of music theory, technique, and listening exercises as well as impart knowledge of the inner workings of music business and performance. For older students who just want to learn some chords or songs and jam alone or with friends, I can provide a highly practical curriculum to get them jamming with confidence.
I teach music from the reality of the student learning. I provide to guide of exercise and the essential Knowledge to advance learning. Each student is treated individually, according with your needs.
My journey towards being a musician began at 6 years old upon seeing a guitar in my childhood friends hand. It wasn't until 9 years of age and after perpetual begging that my parents kindly, gifted me an acoustic guitar. First came music theory and guitar technique at Chafin Music instruction school. Throughout my 4 year span of private guitar lessons, I delved into the blues and rock lead styles, which eventually paved the way to learn the classical methods of guitar playing. After completing the teacher certification program and attaining an Associates degree at Palm Beach State, I've since continued my education, while also pursuing work in the educational field. Eventually that brought me to working for an after school music program through the Palm Beach County School district. Since then, having racked up almost 4 years of teaching music in private lesson and group lesson format in schools, homes, and summer camps. I've tended to and have taught around 250 different people since 2013. Although I've typically worked K - 12th grade students, I've taught older students in the range of their 40's - 50's. While working with School of Rock, I was an assistant band director, responsible for coming up with set lists for the youth band, teaching them the material and eventually having them play at a live venue in six months time. Teaching them not just how to play, but how to be entertaining and engaging, live performers. On occasion performing with the schools adult band students at live events as a fill in when needed.
My teaching history dates back to when I was just a freshmen at college. I began teaching beginners and playing in various bands and began enjoying and sharing music with others. When I graduated I began to teach intermediate and some advanced students and realized that music would forever be a part of my life. I have performed with various bands and ensembles throughout the years and throughout Florida. I have worked with a variety of students from children to adults. I have studied classical and contemporary music and feel very comfortable with improvisation as well.

There are many popular brands of bass guitars, including Fender, Gibson, and Ibanez. All will offer a you quality instrument. 4-string basses are standard, and are what most beginners will choose. If you are more advanced, or interested in heavier rock music, a 5 string bass may also be a good option.
Bass is a great instrument for older children to begin with. Due to the size of the instrument, and the weight of the heavier strings, younger children will not be able to work with the bass comfortably. If students are interested in playing with groups such as a school jazz band, the bass is a great option.
We make it easy for adult students of any skill level to begin lessons with us. Bass is a great instrument for beginners and advanced students alike, as beginners will be able to learn new skills and apply it to playing along to their favorite music.

We've only had a few lessons with Elisa, but so far we really like her. She has a lot of great suggestions for solo pieces as well as orchestral music that involves all 3 of my boys, while also including some Christian music that we can play at church. She is very patient in explaining the lessons and encouraging!

Angela has been a perfect match-up for me. She is warm and welcoming, and also serious about teaching - she keeps our time focused and on track. What I truly appreciate, as a new singer anxiously preparing for an event, is the confidence she gives me. Angela is very encouraging. I enjoy coming to class.

Having taken 6 years of piano lessons myself when I was young, I am very happy with Osmond teaching my daughter. He is very personable and helping her to enjoy piano. My daughter loves the fun songs she gets to play and I really appreciate how he is integrating even in the first month fingering, chords, beats, and hearing the music. She's getting a very well rounded training and she's loving it!

My 4 year old son is quite energetic. Another piano teacher tried to teach him before Peter and could not get my son to listen to him at all. That teacher told me that my son had no interest and that we needed to wait before having my son take lessons. Peter started teaching my son a few weeks later. He quickly developed a great rapport with my son. I was astounded when my son sat down and listened to Peter during the first lesson. Peter has remarkable patience and is a natural working with children. He knows when to follow the child's lead. My son is very interested in how the piano works, so Peter takes the time to teach him about this. He is able to use my son's interests (superheroes, Lego, Star Wars, etc.) to refocus him back to playing the piano. Between lessons, he brainstorms on how he can teach my son better. For example, my son was playing the notes, but not understanding rhythm, so Peter looked into it and came back the next week with a new plan which helped. My son looks forward to his lesson every week. When he hears the doorbell ring on lesson day, he exclaims, "Yay! Peter's here!"

"My daughter is 10 years old and has been taking piano lessons with Mr. Dale J. for almost 4 years now. She is progressing nicely. His kind and gentle way make for a very positive learning experience. Mr. Dale J. is encouraging without being harsh or belittling. He is patient and the ideal instructor for my daughter."
Review by Ginger
Unbelievably Awesome. My daughter is a beginner and has some special needs. Justin is more than patient and helpful while being completely thorough and pushing her (in a good way) to try harder. He is encouraging and teaches effectively. I am very pleased. More important, so is my daughter. Thank you Musika! So grateful we found your service and connected with Justin. We highly recommend him.

Vince is a great drum teacher for my 8 year old son. We go to his house where he has a studio setup with a huge drum set. He has been very patient but really holds my son responsible for learning the right way to play. After about 5 lessons, my son is playing some rhythms on the drums and reading music. He looks forward to his lessons with Vince.
Review by Jeremy
Dr. Nedra C is incredible. She knows her craft in and out, it truly shows in her teaching. As well, she cares a great deal about the student, and preps plenty of material outside of the lesson for those that she teaches. I've had many different music teachers and am aware who's talented and cares, and who isn't. Dr. Nedra C is true phenomenal, and any student would be lucky to have her.
Review by James F.
After my first piano lesson, Polina is easily the best teacher I could have hoped for. Extremely charismatic and excited to help YOU learn the piano. She puts a lot of effort into evaluation your learning style and will no doubt help you make tremendous strides! I'm stoked to continue taking lessons!
Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.Ok
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
