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 teaching experience goes back to 1980. I began teaching private students in a local music studio. During my college years, I was a Graduate Assistant. When I am not private teaching, I am working with students in their school district jazz band programs. All of my students are encouraged to participate in their school band programs and solo contests.
Instruments: Piano, Saxophone, Clarinet
I bring a holistic method to my teaching, so in addition to developing important fundamentals, I work to develop all aspects of music (theory, aural skills, performance skills etc.). I believe serves to motivate us and results in a rewarding and succesful musical experience. In addition to Standards of Excellence and Essential Elements as starting resources for beginners, All-State requirements for middle and high school students, I work hard to bring a variety of music for students to work on, developing a broad taste in repertoire. My goal is always to create an engaging and fun learning atmosphere.
Instruments: Piano, Violin, Viola, Clarinet
Teaching Methods: For beginning students on Piano, I like to start with Alfred's Basic Piano Books. For clarinet: H. Klose. For Viola and Violin: Suzuki. There is a small amount of leeway I allot for those students who are exemptional. These books offer easy ways for begining students to learn the rudiments and mechanics of their particular instrument. Once progression is being made in the development of rudiments and mechanics, I start to incorporate solo works to spice up the learning experience. I like to have fun with my lessons. So, sometimes we will shy away from our regular studies to investigate some modern, and cool things that are being done with music.
Teaching Styles: It is important to me that each of my students learns to love their instrument. But, even more than the love of their instrument, is the importance of knowing and understanding one's instrument. I offer positive reinforcement, encouraging my student in realistic goals. I acknowledge accomplishments that help fuel my student's desires to progress. However, I do not hide from the fact that pursuing music is a discipline. A well structured and commited practice time offers the best benefits. There is no greater reward than to be able to play what your heart desires.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice, Clarinet, Ukulele, Recorder
I started teaching in a studio while I was in high school, and I branched out to teach out of my own residence while I was in college. Having taught a variety of ages, I have found that making a personal connection with people is fundamental in making progress in music. Performing with a traveling children's band around the country and leading worship in Africa have been experiences that have taught me how to connect with people in a way that is relevant and helpful to them. I interned in children's ministry, but I have worked with adults, too. I love people and enjoy sharing music with everyone.
Instruments: Trumpet, Trombone, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Drums, Bass Guitar, Euphonium, Tuba, Mallet Percussion
My teaching style is calm yet sensitive, careful yet daring. I love to challenge students. I also believe in giving lots of praise and encouragement. I don't have a set teaching style. I am very flexible and will based each lesson on the individual student.

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
