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: Piano, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet
Teaching Methods: 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.
Teaching Styles: I love to see kids progress in music and become excited about it!! My teaching style is very paced and hands on. If a student isn't getting something, I like to slow it down until they they do. I'm very complimentary and positive during lessons; this helps the student be confident. I also try to give the student a guideline on how to practice and how to pace themselves throughout this process. I tailor all of my lessons according to what the student needs.
Instruments: Piano, Voice, Trumpet, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Drums, Organ, Recorder, French Horn, Piccolo, Mallet Percussion, Orchestral Percussion, Oboe, Bassoon
Teaching Methods: I have developed my own beginning teaching materials. I also use popular method books for intermediate and advanced levels. I give a fall and spring recital in which all students are encouraged and motivated to participate in. I believe in motivated engaging lessons that produce a fun and enjoyable time at all skill levels.
Teaching Styles: I love to see a student express themselves through music. My style and approach is to tailor instruction for the individual student. This is done with the belief that everyone does not learn the same. By recognizing accomplishments and progress, I seek to keep the desire of music alive.
Instruments: Piano, Trumpet, Trombone, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Drums
Teaching Methods: I like Faber and Faber piano adventures because they teach a lot like I do. I've been developing a power point and You Tube presentation to go along with the book for those students who need more visual stimulus. I like various curruiculum's with Trumpet and Brass players. I stay around the Trumpet players Bible using an Arban's book with some Clark exercises along with the students band book to help them not to form bad habits.
Teaching Styles: I like to make music fun and lessons fun. I try to give students realistic goals weekly.
Instruments: Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet
Teaching Methods: 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.
Teaching Styles: Above all else, music is supposed to be fun. I want my students to be excited about learning new things each week. Music is also a collaborative practice, so I think it is important for the student and the teacher to play together in a supportive environment to help reaffirm the week's lesson. I understand that each student is different, and weekly assignments will be given accordingly.This will require a reasonable weekly goal so that students can see their progress and feel good about their accomplishments, inspiring them to continue playing and learning.
