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, Trumpet, Trombone, Flute, Clarinet
Teaching Methods: I like to spend the first lesson figuring out what the student knows so that I can formulate lesson plans that are relevant and chronological. Once a rapport is established, I introduce material that is both accessible and challenging and help the student work through the music. First we work on playing the right notes and rhythms, then we add musicality and expression.
Teaching Styles: It is important to me that my students gain the necessary knowledge and skills to be able to continue making music after lessons with me end. I want to make sure that they develop a strong foundation for music understanding and are able to apply it to their chosen instrument.
Instruments: Saxophone, Clarinet, Recorder
I have found that every student requires a very different approach when teaching in a private setting. And that is true of students of all levels. It's quite difficult and unproductive to try and fit every student into the same method. Younger students, beginning and intermediate, progress often has to follow a school dictated path. I can work with any method book provided by the school or recommend a method that I find appropriate for the student. I also like to provide the student with new music every lesson. For advanced students, I like to rely on the standard clarinet repertoire for most of the lesson material, and I supplement with etudes from the clarinet repertoire as well as my own transcriptions of etudes from the violin, viola, cello, oboe, flute and bassoon repertoire and technical studies to address specific parts of the technique. I emphasize an approach that is true to the performance practice of the era the composer was active. Adult students often already have an idea of where they want to be, and I tailor make the lessons to reach that goal.
Instruments: Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet
First, I believe it is important all students have a firm grasp on the fundamentals of the instrument, which may include some scale exercises, for example. Once we achieve a basic level, we can move along to some solo repertoire, etudes, and tunes that target a specific area to keep lessons fun and engaging, all while reaffirming subjects learned previously. Regarding jazz and improvisation, lessons will cover a broad spectrum, ranging from modal improvisation, to bebop and postmodern styles, all while focusing on harmonic functionality and individual expression.
Instruments: Piano, Voice, Trumpet, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Drums, Organ, Recorder, French Horn, Piccolo, Mallet Percussion, Orchestral Percussion, Oboe, Bassoon
My experience began when I was an assistant band director in the Memphis City School system. I gave lessons and helped form the marching and jazz ensembles. My studio has produced All-State and All-West Tennessee players, as well as collegiate level students. I have taught many genres of music including jazz, classical, bluegrass and gospel. I'm always excited to bring in new students!
Instruments: Piano, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet
For my beginning students who are children on piano, I typically start with Alfred's Basic piano books. There are so many levels and it helps them understand the basics. With the piano books there are also theory workbooks that give them a chance to think about what they are actually doing when it comes to making music. With the older students on piano, I stick with Alfred's Piano books for adults. It's a fast paced learning tool but also help adults learn the basics. With my instrumental students I use Essential Elements and Hal Leonard's; I will also provide solo repertoire and technique books.

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
