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: Voice, Trumpet, Clarinet
Teaching Methods: As a musician, it is important to refine performance, technique, and style. I like to find out what the student's goal or difficulty is in each of those categories. Then we plan a recital usually 4-6 months away. I ask the student to choose 4-5 songs that they enjoy and that feel would be a feat to perform. I choose 1 song that I think would challenge them in each of the musician categories. Then we work to prepare the 5-6 songs for the recital. The idea is to have an attainable goal to achieve within a certain amount of time. This requires the student to create succesful practice habits outside of lessons and the recital gives real world experience. For students I have had for more than a year, each recital showcases their improvement.
Teaching Styles: In learning music, it is very important for students to have the freedom to explore and cultivate their own artistry. It is my job to guide their development with proper technique and discipline. When first meeting a student, I learn what their interests are and meet them at their level. Then I devise a strategy based on who they already are as a musician that will help them to advance.
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: Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Recorder, Tuba, Piccolo, Oboe, Bassoon
Teaching Methods: For beginners through intermediate students I normally use the Rubank Method, Standard of Excellence, Essential Elements, Trevor Wye Tone, and Boehm Method books to start students out on to ensure their success in band class and their affordability for home practice. The method books I listed before really give students a good sense of technique, theory, history, and phrasing as a early musician, and with my guidence my students can really work and learn fast. Once the student has progressed and have grasped the fundamentals of playing their instrument I normally start students out with solo repertoire and etudes for recitals or auditions for commnity ensembles. For advanced students I normally will have them learn complete pieces of music from the standard repertoire of music and I normally move them on to more advanced method books at a quicker pace then what they start out with. I believe in having students perform in community ensembles to better themselves as musicians and to have motivational compitition with thier peers, so I will always be teaching students adutition repertoire and professional qualities of a musician.
Teaching Styles: I believe in developing a sense of passion for music and drive to always want to learn in students, because as a parent and teacher we want students to succeed and make something of themselves when they get out in the real world. Through hard work and disciplne I belive students can learn to be driven to succeed, and I think that music is a stepping stone in teaching self motivation and continuous learning. I accomplish all the items stated before by setting realistic goals for the students and helping them really manage what they want truuly need from me to accomplish their goals and the goals I have set for them. By having a high standard of excellence in playing music my students can expect to truly be pushed to succeed and have a sense of striving to succeed.
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, Trumpet, Trombone, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Drums, Euphonium, French Horn, Tuba, Mallet Percussion
Teaching Methods: I have the most Experience using the following Method Books: Standard of Excellence, Essential Elements, Accent on Achievement, Instrumental Methods
Teaching Styles: In my classroom transdisciplinary is innate to my teach style. I teach all skills in my class using many methods including but, not limited to the following: Clapping, singing, stomping, writing, modeling, syllables (math), one-on-one Beginning players usually start with a short Assessment of their knowledge of music. We will spend a lot of time thorughout their experience on Tone, Intonation, Technique, Range, and Style using various styles. Experienced players usually start with a short Assessment of their knowledge of music. A high focus of our Studio time will be spent developing Music/Solos etc. they are already preparing for Honors groups, High School and College. We will spend a lot of time thorughout their experience on Tone, Intonation, Technique, Range, and Style using various styles.
