As a guitarist I am comitted to composing, performing and sharing my love of music with others through teaching. I hold a bachelors degree in Classical Guitar Performance from Arizona State University where I studied with renowned guitarists and teachers Frank Koonce and Chuck Hulihan. I strive to be a vesatile musician and have practiced and performed many different styles of music for guitar, bass, piano and on occasion voice. I have recently relocated to south Florida and am excited to continue my career as a musician here.
I have loved music since before I was born. My mom likes to say that she could tell that I would like music because she could feel me bouncing around in the womb when she was at the Buddy Holly movie when she was pregnant. I've played piano, trumpet, guitar and sung throughout my life and don't plan to stop learning any time soon. I've been teaching privately for about five years now and I really enjoy it. I will be seeking a masters degree in music education at FIU starting this spring and eventually hope I can teach at the university level.
I have been raised in a musical family and have a had a passion for music at a young age. Growning up in a Colombian culture, my roots began in Latin Music and later on progressing to others styles such as jazz, R&B and pop music. I've had the privelage to study in Berklee College of Music where I had the opportunity to perform with many great artists and musicians as well as cultivating my skill in Music Production. I'm grateful to have many experiences performing a variety of music and I am constantly motivated to keep learning and sharing on my musical journey. I'm looking forward to sharing more my music and production work with you soon!
I am a passionate music teacher. I have been teaching for about 4 years now. I play in several local bands in the South Florida area. My main group just recently performed at Sunfest in West Palm Beach. I've made music my life, and I'm excited to help new students grow their abilities.
I've been learning and performing since I was 9. First it was just simple recitals among my fellow peers at Chafin Music school, but as I became more proficient with the guitar, I fell into my first band. It was just a friend who sang, and myself who played guitar as a duo. Our first show was our schools talent show of my sophomore year. As luck would have it, we came in first place among the plethora of musical acts, dancers and actors. From there we eventually found other musicians to complete our act, which is how I managed to become a multi instrumentalist as I picked up working knowledge of how to play bass guitar, keyboard and drums. I've been in 6 different bands, and all before I was 20. The first show I played had over 300 people there, and I nearly died of stage fright. Not to mention, I popped two high E strings, on two different guitars. It was almost like dying. I've played countless shows, and performed at countless open mics nights, playing to well over 2,000 people since. My love of music comes from the personal fulfillment attained when creating new, original compositions. Learning to play songs I enjoy is great, but the best part of music comes from the ability to be able to invent unheard material. Seeing aspiring musicians thrive as I assist in sculpting the foundation that students eventually finish molding themselves upon, is amazing to witness.

An appropriate age to begin playing bass is around 10 years old. Younger children are typically not comfortable working with the instrument, as it is larger than some young students. Bass students must have strong hands to deal with the heavier, thicker strings. Playing the bass allows the student to play with all different types of ensembles, including jazz and rock styled groups.
A standard 4-string bass is a good choice for beginners. Popular brands include Fender, Gibson, and Ibanez. Students who may be interested in hard rock or heavy metal may consider a 5-string bass, which grants access to lower, deeper tones.
Our teachers understand that every student is different, so each lesson will be different. With customized lesson plans, the teacher will work with you on your own strengths and weaknesses, so you will get as much out of the lessons as possible. You will learn how to read music, play with correct technique, and advance your musicianship, as well as any skills that may be pertinent to your personal goals.
The bass is a really fun instrument for adults who have no prior experience with music. Students of any age can learn to listen for the bass lines in their favorite songs and learn how to play along.
In home lessons are great for both adults and children alike. Everyone has a busy schedule, and by choosing in home lessons, learning an instrument becomes extremely convenient. There is no need to spend time and money traveling to a studio when you can have the teacher come right to your home.

thank you musika and ed. I never thought of looking for an in-home lesson until I found musika. I have absolutely no hesitation that Ed is beyond capable. He's even offered to meet us at a music store to purchase the correct fitting instrument. how fabulous is that! We've also decided to extend the lesson time from 30 to 45 minutes. All this and just one lesson under our belt. He quickly understood where my daughter is at in level and her style of music. I'm thrilled as can be.

After signing up for lessons with David L. I knew I made the right choice. Just after a couple of weeks I didn't see him as a teacher but as a best friend. There was always a relaxed atmosphere during the lessons. He was very easy to talk to and he really listen to you. If I ever had a question he would answer. He tailors to what ever you want to do in that lesson. David L. is a great teacher and a friend. I totally recommend him for anyone

Caitlyn is friendly, helpful and still holds my high-school aged daughter accountable for practicing. She also makes sure the music technique is mastered correctly during the lessons - they work hard and still have a good time together. I can highly recommend her as a flute teacher. My daughter is very happy & grateful to have found Caitlyn as a teacher.

Erin has been a wonderful voice/piano teacher for our 7 year old daughter. She is talented, patient, and has a wonderful demeanor. She has been consistent with her teaching in piano and voice. She keeps record of where the students leave off so that they know what to expect the following week. I would definitely recommend Erin to anyone looking for a skilled piano/voice teacher.

“I took drum lessons from Mark for about 7 months. I have been playing for 38 years but always thrive to learn more. He was able to provide me alternative exercises and help me gain a better understanding of my opportunities. I have been able to take my playing to another level. His approach to teaching is perfect for any level of student, beginner or advanced. He is a true professional and an outstanding person. You won't go wrong with Mark!” Blaine Vaz

She is amazing! My daughter, Isabella (7 yrs) is totally engaged in the lesson. Lilly's definitely has a gift with teaching young children!!! A great talent of hers is making the content interesting, current to today's music and most of all fun! She has a knack for taking the material and translating it in a way that is relatable to Isabella. My daughter really enjoys her lesson's and has moved along rather quickly with the material. Thanks Lilly!

Pavel is doing a great job with my 6 year old son. Pavel is doing a great job helping my son focus on technique and rhythm, which is something previous instructors weren't so successful with. Pavel is organized / structured / systematic, which is what my son needs now, but I hope he relaxes a bit as the lessons continue so that more "joy" comes through.
Review by Stan
My two daughters wanted to study piano fore some time now and just recently I found Musikalessons website and teacher Milica. I can only say that my daughters are very happy with their piano lessons and simply adore Milica. They already made a great progress and we're all happy with what they learned in this short period. Thank you Musikalessons and Milica.

I started my 5 yr old daughter with Karleen this Fall. Karleen has a calm and honest disposition. My daughter adores her and cannot wait for her arrival. I was concerned because my daughter is not so willing to "practice" during the week. Karleen advised me to allow her habits of practicing to evolve naturally as her love and understanding of piano increases. She emphasized how nurturing my daughter's love of music is most important. This was music to my ears :)
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.
