Musicology is a established and dynamic music school offering lessons, clinics and events in the Tampa Bay area. Musicology opened it’s doors in autumn of 2006. Since then the school has been growing rapidly ever since with it’s individualized lessons and labs.
Musicology’s owner/president/guitarist Peter Mongaya’s objective is to be a valuable resource to the Tampa Bay area musician who is not satisfied with their current level of skill on the instrument. As a professional guitarist and musician for over 22 years Peter has a very extensive experience both in playing and teaching music at a very high level. Peter himself has studied with some of the worlds finest educators in music. These teachers passion to teach the craft of music with excellence, studying factual music and their never ending passion for music influenced Peter’s path greatly and thus Musicology was born out of that philosophy. To teach, mentor, empower and pass on solid and factual music information for study, is the heart of Musicology’s vision. Music is craft and should be taught as such.
Schools and teachers who just teach songs, riffs and fragmented information are doing a huge disservice to the community of upcoming musicians. Please: RUN AWAY if you are studying with that type of teacher. They are prolonging the illiteracy that runs so rampant among so many musicians. We at Musicology stress building a solid musical foundation for any student stepping foot in to our building. We take the student’s development serious and individualize every lesson based on the person’s goals. Come hang with us “Triple Blackbelts” of music, check us out, first lesson is on us!
Musicology teaches students at all levels; YES ALL LEVELS! from a complete beginner to the gigging musician. Musicology’s teachers have the tools to further the development of the musician who is not content with their current skill and ready to move forward.
We are proud to say that we have one of the most qualified teaching faculties of any music school in the whole Tampa Bay area. All our teachers have a minimum of a degree in music or equivalent experience . Several teachers have been, or are currently, on faculty at colleges/music conservatories.
