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, Flute, Clarinet
I have over twenty years of private lesson experience. I began teaching private lessons to flute students in Ponca City High School while I was a student at Oklahoma State University. I have taught privately for over twenty years with experience teaching flute, piano, clarinet, and saxophone. While I was in Minnesota, I began teaching private piano lessons in people's home in a program similar to Musika. I then moved to New York where I taught lessons at DeSantis School of music and then had a private studio for the ten years I lived there. I taught band in New York, specializing in woodwinds and began teaching private lessons during the summer breaks. I also was an adjudicator in New York state for the Solo and Ensemble contests held throughout the state. I have taught ages 4 through adults and have a great deal of experience teaching special needs students both in the classroom and in private lessons. Having recently moved to the Tulsa area, I am trying to build up my private students because I love teaching them, getting to know the students, sharing my love and knowledge of music, and watching them grow in their skills and love of music.
Instruments: Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Accordion
I have been teaching the saxophone since 2008, to both kids and adults. I always like to incorporate music theory and aural skills into my lessons as I believe those subjects are a must in becoming a well-rounded musician.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice, Violin, Cello, Viola, Trumpet, Trombone, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Drums, Bass Guitar, Recorder, Euphonium, French Horn, Tuba, Mallet Percussion, Bassoon, Keyboard, Acoustic Guitar
Teaching Methods: Piano: Younger Students Suzuki & Faber Older Students: Hannon, Masterworks Classic, Alfred Adult Method and Hal Leonard Strings: Strickly Strings and Essential Elements Band Instruments: Essential Elements and Essential Musicianship Voice: 24 Italian Art Songs, Broadway Singers, Vacci, Adler and Prima Donna Album Guitar: Super Guitar Book, Praise Guitar Charts & Hal Leonard Essential Guitar
Teaching Styles: I use a Practice based incentive program to develop healthy musical habits. I listen to the goals each student wants to achieve and set up steps to accomplish the goal. While in a lesson I establish basic musicianship, while developing and shaping a performers self image. Warm encouragement and helpful criticism are used to create a safe testing ground to forge and hone new skills.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Trumpet, Trombone, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Recorder, Euphonium, French Horn
For beginning students whose primary goal is membership in a school performance ensemble, I will usually choose a beginning band method that give them a good foundation in fundamental playing techniques. As they gain basic skills at this level, I expand the content of lessons to include easy solo repertoire. For older and adult beginning students, I usually use instrumental methods more suited for older learners. In addition, I incorporate easy solo literature for public performance.
Instruments: Piano, Flute
I take all of my students through the leveled piano curriculum, whether it would be Faber and Faber Piano Adventures or Alfred Piano. My adult students I take through the adult method books. A lot of my adult students want to learn gospel piano and so we learn some of the easy hymns out of the hymn book. I start teaching right at the very beginning how to write music. Each lesson they take home a blank staff paper in which they write specific notes and rhythm patterns on during the week. They learn to write and read their music very well, and it is fun to do. They of course are rewarded at their lesson for bringing back their papers. I have just started opening up to the whole new world of music out there on you tube. My students find a song they want to learn and hopefully we can find the music to it. If not, we try and learn it by ear. Of course I want them to have a knowledge of note reading before they play by ear. I do try and encourage my students to learn the classics after they have completed their lesson books, but I am also conscious of their desire to learn new music out there.

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
