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
Teaching Methods: For beginning students I teach out of the Rubank Elementary Method books. These books are most comprehensive for beginning students. As the student progresses I begin introducing them to solo repertoire, scales studies, and jazz improvisation. My approach is much different with adult students. I ask them what are their musical goals and from there I can create a curriculum based on adult student’s needs and wants. My teaching method works for all students, no matter the age or musical level.
Teaching Styles: Music is a very tough discipline. It will not happen in one lesson, but what will happen is that students will instantly witness progress and this feeling becomes addictive. I challenge my students to practice hard because with that type of discipline the student will not only grow musically, but mentally as a human. I would not be the compassionate person I am today if it had not been for me falling in love with music.
Instruments: Piano, Voice, Clarinet, Mallet Percussion
Teaching Methods: Students are not the same therefore each method is different. The introductory lesson is used to get to know the student and what it is that they need and a program or methodolgy is designed based on that student's needs.
Teaching Styles: Fun is the goal of each student because a student enjoying themselves will always want to practice and be successful. I try to incorporate as much learning in a light fun filled environment as possible to keep the student interested in their talent.
Instruments: Piano, Trumpet, Trombone, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Drums, Mallet Percussion, Conga, Latin Percussion
Teaching Methods: My methods are very indiviualized and definitely outside the box. I frequently write material directly for the student (rather than use method books) It has been demonstrated to be very effective.
Teaching Styles: There are three acceptable answers to me: 1) The correct answer. 2) I don't know. 3) I don't remember. We keep going until 1 is the response.
Instruments: Piano, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet
Teaching Methods: For beginning students, I typically start with Essential Elements or standard of excellence. Once a student has progresses to have a gasp of fundementals, I begin t introduce solo repertoire and, if interested, the student begins studies in jazz. I also try to find out what the student is interested in learning and guide the instruction accordingly. I also have the ability to customize lesson plans and materials.
Teaching Styles: I love to see my students develop a passion for music. I realize that each student learns at a different rate. I set realistic goals for each student in each lesson. By trying to find out what inspies eah student, I can tailor the instruction t their wants and needs.
Instruments: Piano, Saxophone, Clarinet
Teaching Methods: For my younger, early elementary piano students, I use the Bastien Piano Basics. For my older school-aged students, I typically use the Faber Piano Adventures series, usually starting off with the acclerated book for the older students. For adults and some of my high school students, I use the Alfred Adult series. All age levels will be taught music theory in conjunction with the regular music lesson, which gives them a deeper understanding of the music that they are learning! My band students will be taught based on what method book their director is using, whether it be Essential Elements, Standard of Excellence, etc. Their lessons may be expanded upon by providing duets or solos for them to play. I also encourage the older students to learn their scales and possibly audition for All-Sate Band if so desired. All of my band students that have been playing for a least a year are encouraged to participate in an annual spring music recital.
Teaching Styles: I really enjoy seeing a student grow in their understanding and knowledge of music! Music can become a life-long passion for many and also provides benefits of the students learning self-discipline, confidence, and pride in learning something new! I am patient and encouraging with all ages and provide opportunites for all to grow!

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
