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, Voice, Violin, Cello, Trumpet, Trombone, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Drums, Recorder, Acoustic Guitar
I teach mostly beginner and intermediate students! Since I have many piano students, I start them with the Alfred piano method. Once the student has progressed to have a grasp of the fundamentals, I will begin to introduce solo repertoire appropriate for their first recital performance. Adults also start out with the Adult Alfred method and then guide my instruction accordingly to keep the lessons engaging and fun, no matter their ability level. I also teach students with disabilities. I have been highly successful in helping them overcome their disability through the study of music!
For absolute beginners, I typically start with some of my own written exercises paired with various books, such as Trevor Wye's "Beginning Flute." At more advanced levels, I encourage my students to work with a program called SmartMusic. SmartMusic has a vast collection of music with accompaniment and other practicing activites. SmartMusic also aids in developing aural skills and it's variety ensures that my students rarely get bored!
Instruments: Voice, Trumpet, Trombone, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Drums, Harmonica, Recorder, Tuba, Piccolo, Mallet Percussion, Orchestral Percussion, Oboe, Bassoon, Conga, Latin Percussion
For the past 4 years I've been teaching appx 15 students for 1 hour each week per student. I like to focus on Jazz from 1940-1960 with a heavy emphasis on Jazz Improvisation. My main instruments are saxophone and clarinet, but I have experience teaching everything from drums to flute to vocal students.
Instruments: Piano, Flute
Teaching Methods: My teaching method is universal and is for all ages and levels, with different approach to children. I have methods for breathing, relaxing muscles, tongue techniques, posture, hand position which are fundamentals of learning both instruments. My approach to children begins with fun and simple pieces and some game like techniques for their practices at home. Once they are comfortable with fundamental techniques, i will move on to solo repertoire and more difficult pieces to prepare them for recitals. For adults, depending on what their goals and interests are, I will tailor my instruction to their needs and will make sure the lessons are engaging and still fun. No matter what age or level, learning music can take you to a wonderful new world and can change your life.
Teaching Styles: A good teacher can make a big difference in someone's life. In teaching music, I have always tried to show them how learning music can set them apart from many others. I try to introduce them to music by educating them in all aspects of music, at the same time, setting goals for each lesson by choosing appropriate pieces to suit their age and level. Each student has his/her pace of progress, so i will help them to achieve best result in their pace. Acknowledging accomplishment will make the student more eager to learn. Knowing what inspires the student, I can help them to grow faster and become a better musicians.
Instruments: Piano, Voice, Violin, Cello, Viola, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Oboe
Teaching Methods: I am a firm believer in teaching music literacy, which means I teach my students to read, write and perform music. We study note reading and rhythm counting, basic music theory, Music History and Composers, and learn performance skills in a chosen instrument. I believe that music performance blossoms the most when the performer understands what they are performing and why the music works the way it does. I have witnessed great musical successes from my students using this method.
Teaching Styles: I am very animated in sharing my love of music with my students. I use positive reinforcement with my students, and appeal to their strengths to work on their musical weaknesses. I believe in teaching a student from where they are and constantly moving them forward in their musicianship and performance skills.

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
