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, Voice, Trumpet, Trombone, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Drums

Because each student progresses at his or her own pace, I am extremely patient and encouraging in each lesson—music should be a relaxing, fun pastime free of anxiety and stress about progressing overly rapidly. We will work hard, but we will remember the underlying joy that comes from making music! Therefore, each lesson will target areas of improvement in each student's playing, while positively reinforcing each student's success as we progress each week. Even during difficult lessons, there are multitudes of positive moments that happen!
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice, Clarinet, Bass Guitar, Lap Steel Guitar, Electric Guitar, Classical Guitar, Acoustic Guitar
Teaching Methods: 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.
Teaching Styles: For my teaching goals I like to help my students learn the instrument from the basic fundamentals. I believe music is like building a house and it is important to start with fundamentals in order to construct a strong foundation for musical knowledge. I like to teach proper technique and playing standards so my students will learn correctly and not have to go back and relearn things and relearn their technique. I like to teach them the correct way so they have the proper foundation to branch out and broaden their musical horizon. Every student is slightly different so I like to assess each student on their needs, goals, skill level, and preferred teacher's style.

I began teaching professionally in the Bay Area about 30 years ago. I have taught in a variety of settings includings classes, group lessons, in music stores, for school districts, at students' homes and in my own private studio. Every person learns differently and I am highly skilled at detecting this and using it to my students' advantage. My recitals not only present individual pieces, but also group works that encourage working together with other musicians which is a highly rewarding benefit of music.

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
