About this pro

I teach classical guitar, electric guitar, acoustic steel string guitar, ukulele, electric bass and music theory! Since 1996, I offer customized lessons suited to what the student wants to achieve without skipping over the fundamentals of music. I teach professionally to students age 4 through adult.  Music degrees? Yep, I have a BM, MM, DMA in "music performance and literature."

In other words, "Got questions?"  I have answers!  :)

Lessons offered 7 days a week.

Pay as you go, no payments in advance required. No fees or bogus charges.

Venmo, Paypal, and Zelle all accepted.

I love the process of learning and when students "get it!" The "Ah-Ha!" is what I live for! Watching the long road of progress is very satisfying for student and teacher.

    Corey is an extremely patient and effective teacher. He is very communicative and friendly; takes the time to make sure you learn things right and that they stick. I can't say enough good things about him.

  • Gaby Cruz

    Dr.Harvin is an extremely patient and experienced teacher. He is very friendly and makes Guitar learning even more fun than it already is. I wouldn't be where I am with my Guitar today if it wasn't for Dr.Harvin. I really can't say enough about how he really helped me.

  • Alejandro Ortiz

    What I liked about the BBC lass is that we were introduced various pieces that required skill with multiple techniques in playing the classical guitar. I feel as if I have become a more talented player and better understand music theory.

  • Jack Sulkes

    I like that he knows what he is doing, he has been doing it for a long time, and he knows how to talk to people.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I usually ask a series of question from students in order to best understand where they want to be in 6 months to 1 year, etc. What is your playing experience? Lessons before? Other instruments played? What playing styles are you interested in learning? What type of music do you want to play? Favorite artists? What goals have you thought of for this week, month, first year of lessons?

After I have a picture of what you want to accomplish, then we can design a lesson plan for you to begin.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I teach guitar, ukulele, electric bass, and music theory. I've been teaching since 1996. I have BM, from FSU and MM, DMA degrees in music, as well as a "College & Community Teaching" certificate from the Eastman School of Music, University of Rochester, NY. I am full time music/guitar faculty at Palmer Trinity School, Miami since 2007.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

FREE initial lesson, and continuing lessons are $40 for 30 minutes $70 for 60 minutes.


How did you get started teaching?

I am from a family of teachers. I love the process of learning and helping others find their path.


What types of students have you worked with?

Ages 11 through adult/senior. Beginners, hobbyists, amateurs, advanced players (yes, we still have more to learn!) ALL levels.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Find a teacher that cares, has experience/knowledge, and one who will answer your questions directly.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

"How much time and days-a-week, am I willing to practice?"

"Can I commit to dedicating 6 to 12 months for myself to improve?"
