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.

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

Each student is unique in that they want to learn at their level of comfort. We work hard to determine that level so students can advance at their optimum level.

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

My training/education comes from several colleges and universities. 

Education-  Oberlin College - piano training

                 Berklee College of Music- (Boston) jazz studies

                 Ohio State University - Bachlors Degree /Music

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

Standard price for half hour private lesson in $30.  We do offer scholarships to help pay for tuition for seniors, low-income, single family parents and members of the military.

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?
