    Yes, indeed.
    Start off with Don Coffman, Chuck Bergeron, and Nick Orta at the University of Miami in Coral Gables.
    Also, try Matt Bonelli at Miami Dade Community College. That should get you goin'.....

    Cool-I think you just have to walk across campus. One of those gentlemen is surely taking some private students....

    I've been studying with Nicky Orta for three years. The best teacher I've ever had and there's been alot of them.

    If you can't find him on campus, look him up on Facebook or nickyorta.com. Plenty of sample of him on YouTube.
