About this pro

Our mission goal is to provide life-changing music education to our current enrollment of students. Mr. Koss has performed with some of the greatest musicians in the world and his knowledge shows it! Students receive 30 or 60 minutes of individual instruction weekly chosen from a wide range of instruments. We provide mentoring and encouragement regarding music, home and school. Each semester we offer students the opportunity to increase their self-confidence by performing before an audience. Parents participate by sending regular reports documenting often remarkable progress observed in their children's academic achievements and social skills. We wish to expand our outreach to greater numbers of students throughout the Tampa Bay area.

Our biggest joy is when parents report remarkable improvements in their children's ability to focus, and that their children are easier to communicate with and that their confidence and self-esteem have strengthened.

    It has been over a year for me taking guitar lessons from Mr Koss. He is a very talented individual where he can play many other musical instruments! It is a pleasure having Mr. Koss as my guitar teacher!

    I have had a wonderful experience taking Flute lessons with Mr. Koss. He is very accommodating and flexible when it comes to scheduling. He is an encouraging teacher that works with his students of all ages to promote their talents. His love of music is evident and his desire to pass that interest on to all is a delight to behold.

    Who knew that at some point in life I'd really look forward to a class?!* Well, I really look forward to my dulcimer lessons with with Greg! We cris-crossed life experiences in Boston in the 70's and so enjoy chatting. The instrument and learning to read music are added treats with this gentleman. The music and sharing it are what Greg Koss is all about, I feel so fortunate to have found him!

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

All day long we get parents that come in and tell us that their kids take lessons at a different place for 2 years and that their neighbor kids just started with us 3 months ago, and that the neighbor kids are playing better then their kids!! SO, can we quit waisting time and money and enroll our kids at your institute?  

WE ARE EXPERIENCED TEACHERS AND GUARANTEE RESULTS!!!
