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: Trumpet, Trombone, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Drums, Bass Guitar, Euphonium, Tuba, Mallet Percussion
Teaching Methods: My beginning band students normally use the method book titled "Accent on Achievement" by Alfred Publishing. I fnd the book non intimidating and it moves the child at the appropriate pace.
Teaching Styles: 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.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice, Clarinet, Ukulele, Recorder
As a people-oriented person, I want my students to feel encouraged after each lesson. Through my experiences with many teachers, I have discovered it is easier to learn from someone who is affirming and inspiring. I love to see the light in students' eyes when they understand something new, and I strive to show them that their effort is well worth it so they can have confidence and joy through music.
Instruments: Piano, Violin, Viola, Clarinet
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.
Instruments: Piano, Saxophone, Clarinet
Whatever the ultimate goal you the student may have (auditions, All-State, or simply learning for fun) I believe that the most rewarding and effective way to learn, is through a holistic teaching method. So, while I will work to develop effective practice methods to ensure a consistent technical development on the saxophone, I also strive to bring awareness to broader musical issues of interpretation, aural development and performance skills. I see myself as a model to my students, and take an interactive approach to my lessons in playing for and with my students.
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.

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
