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, Voice, Violin, Cello, Viola, Trumpet, Trombone, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Bass Guitar, Harmonica, Ukulele, Recorder, Piccolo, Mallet Percussion, Orchestral Percussion, Conga, Latin Percussion, Keyboard, Electric Guitar, Classical Guitar, Acoustic Guitar
Teaching Methods: I believe that a strong foundation is essential for steady progress and confident performance. A comprehensive approach is my preference. Therefore, when I teach piano, I prefer Faber and Faber Piano Adventures paired with A Dozen a Day for added technique. Since many students in this school district are in band or orchestra, I usually use Essential Elements for Strings, Brass, and Woodwinds. I spend a reasonable amount of time preparing my students for our recitals and many of them join in the group songs, which have included "What a Wonderful World", "Happy", and currently "The Theme From Midnight Cowboy".
Teaching Styles: Music is my gift. I am blessed with a natural ability which I have dedicated my life to learn, cultivate and nurture. To share this through teaching is rewarding. I teach students of all ages and levels. We have two recitals per year, which are unique and fun because of our wide variety of instruments and our group songs. My introductory lesson is full of information to build a foundation on which further knowledge can stand. We work through lesson books and as we approach recital time, we focus more on specific skills. After recital, we review and then begin again at our next level.
Instruments: Piano, Voice, Trumpet, Trombone, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Drums
Teaching Methods: I have been blessed with studying with some of the finest teachers in the country including Leon Russianoff, William Wrzesien (Boston Pops/Esplanade), and Anthony Gigliotti (Philadelphia Orchestra). These fine teachers have allowed me to pass on their methods to my past and current students to be successful.
Teaching Styles: Because I believe in music so passionately, it comes very natural to me to build a positive relationaship with my students. I give them the tools to move forward, and allow them to go as far as they want to as a musician. I also am honest and keep a good sense of humor with them as well in my studio.
Instruments: Voice, Violin, Cello, Viola, Trumpet, Trombone, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Bass Guitar

I believe in music lessons there must be a balance. Especially on an instrument like guitar. Lessons should consist of a list of certain things almost like a checklist. First there is warm up and tuning. To make sure you are warmed up and in tune there are exersizes I like to start with my students. Once they are feeling fresh I like to move on to sight reading and notation reading (practiced and unpracticed material) as well as scales, intervals, and arpeggios. I believe every student will be on a slightly different skill level and want to accomplish different goals. I am very goal oriented and with music I want to help my students practice, learn, achieve their goals, and most importantly I want them to have fun and enjoy playing music.
Instruments: Saxophone, Clarinet
For beginning students, I usually employ the Rubank method books. These books, while not as flashy as others, are exceptional for building technique, musicality, and reading skills. In addition, my students focus upon proper tone production, technique, and posture as we explore their musical preferences. I encourage my students to explore the genres of music that they enjoy as well. Through fun Disney excerpts, jazz transcriptions, pop music, or any other passion, we keep our lessons productive, yet fun. At the end of the day, each student knows what we have worked on and what we will focus upon next week to make progress while having a good time.

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
