Our music lesson students will have the opportunity to take lessons from the comfort of their own home or in one of the teachers studios. Careful attention is placed on each student to ensure a custom lesson plan. Our music teachers understand that every student has different needs and abilities and therefore the lessons will be planned with that knowledge in mind.
lessons are available in the following areas:
Instruments: Piano, Cello
I began teaching cello in the year 2007 as a way to help my high school orchestra teacher. From there I began to teach privately during my undergrad from 2008 and through my master's degree until present day. Currently I teach mainly through the Oklahoma Conservatory of Music. The age range that I am most experienced with is late elementary school and up. I have had student win solo competitions and place first chair in regional youth orchestral auditions.

Teaching Styles: I use a Practice based incentive program to develop healthy musical habits. I listen to the goals each student wants to achieve and set up steps to accomplish the goal. While in a lesson I establish basic musicianship, while developing and shaping a performers self image. Warm encouragement and helpful criticism are used to create a safe testing ground to forge and hone new skills.
My teaching style is dependent on active involvement for all parties involved. For this reason, I encourage parents of young students to sit in on the lesson so they can understand how I want the student to practice and prepare for the coming lesson. For other students, I will have them keep a practice log in which I can write the expectations for the coming lesson and "assignments" to be completed. Developing a student's comprehension of music and playing ability is not a "one style fits all" task, so I tend to choose the right teaching style based on the student; one student may need a very sympathetic and caring teacher to encourage their progression, while another may need a tough teacher to challenge them to practice more often. Whatever the case, by actively practicing between each lesson and by carefully listening during a lesson, my students can achieve any goal they set their minds to.
Instruments: Violin, Cello, Viola
During my 15 plus years of teaching violin, I worked in a variety of class settings (public and private school as well as in private offsite lessons), using different teaching styles with a wide range of student levels (beginners to undegraduates) and ages (3 to adult). Through these experiences, I have become very flexible and improvisational in my educational approach, and am open to learn and adjust to new and uncertain work environments, perhaps more easily than most. After my studies and experience working as an orchestra director for middle and high school orchestras in Indiana, I learned a lot more about teaching viola, cello and bass. I'm all about the students having fun while learning to play. A non-judmental enviroment is also very important.
Don't just take our word for it. We hold the highest possible A+ rating from the nations foremost online reliability source: The BBB. Check out our A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau.
Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.Ok
