MEET OUR INSTRUCTORS
Owner and Founder
Tricia (Miranda) Musto founded Pisces Swim School in 2003 and has been teaching private swimming lessons to children and adults for a total of 18 years. Prior to that, she swam competitively and was a lifeguard for many years. Her inspiration for teaching kids how to be safe and have fun in the water originates from a near-drowning incident that occurred when Tricia was only 3 years old. "To be able to teach a person to be comfortable and safe in the water in such a short amount of time puts a smile on my face as well as my students and their parents." Tricia has a 6 year-old son who loves the pool just as much as she does!
Aprile has been a swim instructor for 8 years at the University of Miami. She started as a lifeguard and then gradually moved her way into swimming and water aerobics. She has joined Pisces Swim School for the past two summers. Teaching children and adults to swim is her true passion. She loves the kids and their smiles when they've learned how to swim for the first time. Aprile is a new triathlete and loves spending time with her husband and her dog, Jagger.
Antonika first found her love for the ocean when working as a Red Cross lifeguard in Tenerife, Spain. She then served in the USCG for 8 years before living and working on private yachts as a Chief Stewardess, Dive Instructor Assistant, and Medical Person in Charge. Antonika is now a trained Natural and Alternative Medicine Specialist and has worked with Pisces Swim School for over three years. She currently manages the Broward County region. Her confidence in others is contagious and her teaching skills are empowering. "I love to see the confidence on my students' faces when they know they have succeeded! Teaching others is my passion."
