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, Guitar, Trumpet, Trombone, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Banjo
Teaching Methods: I have used many of the published methods for all of the instruments over the years. I am always open to any approach that will work for any given student.
Teaching Styles: My goal for every student is to experience learning their instruments in an environment that is both encouraging and rewarding. I exhibit patience with the student knowing what it takes to develop new skills and I work hard in helping each student feel at ease in expressing themselves. I have used many different materials over the years, depending on the individual student's needs and desires to play their music. I do stress learning to read music notation so that you can approach with confidence any piece of music that you would like to play. With the proper dedication, every student can enjoy making music in a short period of time, getting better and better along their musical journey.
Instruments: Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Recorder, Tuba, Piccolo, Oboe, Bassoon
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.
Instruments: Saxophone, Clarinet
Developing respect and passion for music is paramount in music lessons. I don't believe in forcing method books and content that, at the end of the day, the student doesn't care about, on my students, they should have a voice in what their being taught. I tailor my teaching style to fit every single student differently. Young players must learn scales and etudes, but that is usually only for half of the lesson; the other half usually consists of finding inspirational performances and pieces that will be FUN for the both of us to learn. Adult students can look forward to lessons that are straight to the point. While I do encourage everyone to learn the basics and fundamentals of playing music such as scales and sight reading, I have found that most adult students wish to perform in atmospheres that require many abilities such as playing by ear and improvisatory skills which are not taught in most high school and middle school curriculums.
Instruments: Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet
As an instructor I am willing to teach any student willing to learn. My number one goal is to share the knowledge that I have gained over the years, so that my students will be forever changed by my undying passion and dedication. I believe that music has and always will stand the test of time and it will never leave this earth, because it frees the world from obstructions. I have taught music for the past three years (mostly in home lessons). Jazz is a very important component to my lesson plan, because I want all of my students to understand the concept of improvisation. Improvisation makes students excited to see that music goes beyond what is on the sheet of paper. If a student is not having a good time making music, I am not doing my job correctly.
Instruments: Piano, Trumpet, Trombone, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Drums, Euphonium, French Horn, Tuba, Mallet Percussion
I have the most Experience using the following Method Books: Standard of Excellence, Essential Elements, Accent on Achievement, Instrumental Methods

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
