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, 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!

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: 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
Teaching should be a healthy balance of encouragement, inspiration, and challenge. I want students to feel good about themselves while also feeling like they are working toward something and pushing themselves to be a better person and musician than they already are. Setting weekly goals and having an assignment notebook are both crucial to this process as they allow the student and teacher to remember what skills can be improved upon and what aspects of their playing that are going well. My main goal in teaching is to help my students love music as much as I do! At the end of the day, that is what teaching for me is all about.

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
