I started to study classical piano when I was 6. Since then, music has been my life.
I have a bachelor degree of music, and plenty of experience playing in bands, working with many music styles, producing, composing, and teaching.
I have a sense of duty about passing the music to the next generation, or whoever is interested in know this great science. The music!
I love the possibility of teach someone a music instrument, witch is nothing but a new language, a new code, accepted and understood everywhere. And for me, music just open minds and hearts in a practical way. After the music, we are better persons.
I like that Mr G. Is making lessons for me to suit want I want want learn. He is very paitient with me and he is an amazing teacher I would recommend him.
When I started to study with Glaucio, I had a little experience. But after his classes, I could improve my style. He worked in my reading, and trained my ear as well. Now I feel much more confident in play, to myself and for the public.
I studied classic piano, but I wasn’t able to play contemporary music in my church, then Gláucio Taught me the pop piano style, and helped me a lot. After a few months I could play the songs I wanted.
I have differents methods according to the age, and previous experience, or if it's a beginner. The lessons are customized for each student.
My goal is make the student feel comfortable with the keys. We achieve this through a mix of music theory and practice. Trying to make them play the song they want as soon as possible.
I started to study with 6 years old, with a private teacher. After one year, I started in the Brazilian conservatory of music, where I accomplished the piano technician course. After that, I started in the college. At that time I was already a music teacher.
I taught for private students and in schools. I worked in the public education as an art teacher focused in music in Brazil.
My standard price is $40 per each 50 min class. If the student want more than one class/week, we can negociate.
I started to teach in 1996, and did that straight for more than 15 years. After that, because my other music activities, I couldn't keep teaching. But in the last few years, I've organized my own and more effective method to teach.
Beginners, starting from 6 years old, and all ages. I had students who wanted to be a pro, and students who wanted to learn just to improve their knowledge.
I'm a hired keyboardist in a church in Garland, and also, I'm participating of a Music play for the Black Academy of Arts and Letters. When I have time, I make some videos for youtube.
To study music, before all, is to became a better person, with more culture and to know yourself. It's one of the most powerful expression of the human being. If after that, you get talent and want to become a proffessional , that would be a plus.
Parents, don't push your kids to study piano, if they loves just sports. If you dreamed to study piano, do it. I'm here, but don't push your kid instead.
The questions are:
Do I want to study this specific instrument?
Do I have time ( at least 30min/day)to dedicate to it daily?
Remember, be able to play an instrument, is the closest thing to have super powers, but you need to study, and training. Even the X-Men, need to master their powers!
