Over 30 years of teaching experience in piano, vocal, choirs, Damaris Nevitt has the talent and experience to take your student as far as they want to go. Lessons are supposed to be fun and students have to want to come back for the next lesson. I try to inspire each student student to find their passion and achieve their goals when taking lessons. It's for no one but themselves that they play or sing.
I studied piano with Dr. Irena Kofmann, and vocal studies were with Ms. Susan Dorchin at FAU.
I'm listed at Linkedin and on Facebook.
I'm a member of the MUSIC TEACHERS NATIONAL ASSOCIATION in good standing.
I enjoy seeing the student progress in their studies. It is especially rewarding when they get a concept they have been struggling with and all of a sudden, they "get it". I have much success with the one on one studies.
I always had fun while learning to play the piano. Always a good day and had a great teacher.
Mrs. Damaris is the most inspirational teacher I have ever had! She has been helping me shape my voice with expert technique and allows me to work on pieces that I really enjoy. The thing I like most about Mrs. Damaris is her kindness, love, and passion she puts into making you a better musician & person. She would never make you feel bad about your mistakes; she's really there to help you. If you are wanting an expert in music and a sweet soul, Damaris exceeds expectations. Coming from a Student for 19+ years. Damaris will cease to amaze the world and the lives she touches along the way.
Mrs. Nevitt is extremely personable and professional. She finds what you want to study and helps you get there. She also helps you discover your hidden talents and opens you to new musical experiences.
I start out finding out what level they are at, then I test their sightreading, and basic knowledge. If a beginner, then we start with the basics.
I began my studies at age 7 and took lessons through college. In 1998, I returned to school, FAU, and began studying with Dr. Irena Kofman for 3 years. I go back for a review lesson every now and then.
I have taught music and music theory since 1991 and I am a church pianist. I can sightread just about anything and can play in every genre of music.
1/2 hour lessons, once a week are $35.
1 hour lessons are $50.
They are payable by the month through Apple pay.
I was teaching part time at a school in Hollywood, Fl and administration encouraged me to pick more students and go full-time. It made the school more attractive to potential students.
Kindergarten through age 78.
I went with a student in May to audition for my former instructor, Dr. Kofman at FAU and my instructor was pleased with what I had taught my student.
Make sure you like your teacher. If you like who you are working with, it will encourage you to do your best.
What track do you want to study? There are two that I offer, the "I want to learn for fun route" and the classical study student route. Both will offer technique, sightreading, and theory but the repetoire will be different and the classical will include assessments and jury performance.
