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
My approach to coaching students is focused on 5 important areas; embouchure, tone quality, intonation (pitch), technique, and time. Memorization of key signatures and scales are very important to the student's overall success. I utilize a method for memorizing key signatures which will decrease the memorization time and increase retention. The choice of music books and etude studies are based upon the student's level of playing and areas I identify needing improvement. Students who have gained more experience in the fundamentals, will be introduced to concepts of jazz style. This will often include style, ear training, basic theory, and improvisation. Basically, my goal is to help the student realize their own success!
Instruments: Piano, Saxophone, Clarinet
Whatever the ultimate goal you the student may have (auditions, All-State, or simply learning for fun) I believe that the most rewarding and effective way to learn, is through a holistic teaching method. So, while I will work to develop effective practice methods to ensure a consistent technical development on the saxophone, I also strive to bring awareness to broader musical issues of interpretation, aural development and performance skills. I see myself as a model to my students, and take an interactive approach to my lessons in playing for and with my students.
Instruments: Trumpet, Trombone, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Drums, Bass Guitar, Euphonium, Tuba, Mallet Percussion
My beginning band students normally use the method book titled "Accent on Achievement" by Alfred Publishing. I fnd the book non intimidating and it moves the child at the appropriate pace.
Instruments: Piano, Violin, Viola, Clarinet
I have been teaching lessons since High School. Back then, I mostly taught beginner students on the Piano. Since College, I have expanded my teaching repertoir to include Piano, Organ, Violin, and Viola. For the past 7 years, I have been teaching and instructing my students on the best practices as blossoming musicians. Nothing can make you a better musician than practice and consistency. No matter what genre of music you are interested in, you must practice. There will always be times were you have to force yourself to practice (because it won't always be fun), but the gains are never dull. It has been my experience that those students who apply themselves diligently, love to play the songs that they have mastered over and over again.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice, Clarinet, Ukulele, Recorder
Teaching Methods: I believe that a mix of styles is important for any musician, but I also believe in meeting the students where their needs are. Without understanding the musician, there is a disconnect in teaching. I care about my students as individuals. Above all, I want my students to care about the music, know that I care for them and their success, and to find enjoyment! My lessons are unique because instead of having a one-size-fits-all session, I tailor to the student. Part of my teaching philosophy is that above all a student needs to be valued as a person before being coached as a musician. Music is empowering, and my desire is for a student not to feel discouraged, but confident.
Teaching Styles: As a people-oriented person, I want my students to feel encouraged after each lesson. Through my experiences with many teachers, I have discovered it is easier to learn from someone who is affirming and inspiring. I love to see the light in students' eyes when they understand something new, and I strive to show them that their effort is well worth it so they can have confidence and joy through music. I also believe in educating students on how to recognize strengths and areas needing improvement themselves, to empower them in their own practice.

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
