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: Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet
For the first lesson, I connect with the student by asking about their background on the instrument, what they enjoy playing, or would like to play. We start with fundamental warm-ups and scales which allows me to assess their level of ability on their instrument. From here, we apply those fundamentals to written music they enjoy playing as well as music I introduce them to. For instance, this could mean playing a piece in the same key as a scale we've been working on or focusing on written music containing specific techniques we've been practicing. I've found that by catering lessons to what the student needs through a variety of techniques, they improve faster and have more fun along the way. The ultimate goal is to inspire in students a love for music which enriches their daily lives.
Instruments: Voice, Trumpet, Trombone, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Drums, Recorder, Euphonium, French Horn, Tuba, Oboe, Bassoon
Teaching Methods: When taking on beginner students, I typically use a blend of method books and novice musical pieces to begin to build musicianship. With intermediate musicians, I tend to seek out anything of interet to the student while incorporating harder repertoire to strengthen musicianship and to continue to peek interest in music. With adult musicians, I let them guide me to their area of interest, and I capitalize on that to guide them to better musicianship, no matter what their skill level may be.
Teaching Styles: I like to understand a student on a musical level, thus letting their ability level and their drive push me in the direction most useful for the student's success. I encourage them by setting specified goals and show them how to attain them while guiding them through any necessary musical concepts they may meet along the way. I gain from my students' accomplishments a sense of pride, which makes me work just as hard for my students as they do for me. I love finding ways to inspire a student to want to learn and achieve more in their area of music. Nothing is more rewarding for me than seeing my students take on something challenging and learn it with a fervor to learn and take on more musical challenges.
Instruments: Piano, Saxophone, Clarinet
Teaching Methods: I use the Rubank method book for clarinet and saxophone, and am currently exploring other methods as well. I typically use Piano Adventures books for beginning piano students, but am also open to other methods, such as Alfred. I will also supplement modern music in for students to work on as well, and have arranged my own pop music for my students if I don't find a particular song at a suitable level for them to play. For adults, I try to find what the student is interested in and guide my instruction based on what they want to work on in their lesson. I keep lessons fun and engaging, no matter their ability level.
Teaching Styles: I have always been more interested in the teaching side of playing music rather than strictly performance. I love seeing my students develop a passion and appreciation for music. I encourage them to play musically, and I set goals for students that are realistic and attainable. I focus on the positive and encourage them to observe their own progress. By trying to find what inspires the student, I can tailor my instruction to their wants and needs. I operate under the philosophy that you can always be improving and progressing, and celebrate even the smallest improvements.
Instruments: Guitar, Clarinet, Bass Guitar, Recorder
My teaching methods vary with age, skill level, and interest. For beginners and children looking to play in ensembles, we may work on reading music, getting comfortable with the instrument, and getting a good sound. I will often use the 1st Hal Leonard guitar book for beginning guitarists. For jazz students, it is essential to listen to classic recordings of jazz and to learn improvisation based on the Berklee Chord Scale Theory. These are just a few examples of my methods as every student has different interests. My areas of expertese include technique, improvisation, harmony and theory, composing, performance anxiety and concentration, and many more. Let's find what works best for you!
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Violin, Trumpet, Trombone, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet
I always explore different methods that might fit the age and personality of the student but for keyboard lessons I have found success with the Alfred Piano Method. Instrumental lessons usually follow the method book that is selected by their school band director. Beyond that I have a large library of supplementary music to expand the students interest with new styles and composers.

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
