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, Saxophone, Flute, Recorder, Oboe, English Horn
Teaching Methods: My teaching method is tailored to each student depending on their level and what they want out of the lessons. I start out beginner students with a beginner method book depending on what instrument they are studying with me and progress to etudes, solo repertoire and even orchestral excerpts as they advance. We work together to find fun ways to practice and understand music performance in a variety of different styles. I can guide the lessons to accomodate everyone's needs - from students looking to make music for fun to those looking to eventually audition for jobs with an orchestra. Everyone can play music and have it enrich their lives!
Teaching Styles: I firmly believe that everyone can learn to play music well. Natural talent exists but if you have the passion and desire then you can achieve anything! I plan the lessons around the individual student and their needs and focus on keeping the students eager and positive by emphasizing strengths and finding solutions for improving areas of difficulty.
Instruments: Trumpet, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Recorder
Teaching Methods: My methods vary between each student. For beginning students, that are not learning in a school setting, I typlically start with Hal Lenard's Essential Elements For Band. Once the student had progressed, I will start to introduce solo repetoire that the student will be instested in, which could be pop tunes or other type of music. This will encourage the student's passion for music to grow. If the student is in a school setting, then the student will work on all of the music for school and solo repetoire. For all other students, I try to find what the student is interested in and create lessons that are engaging and fun, no matter what their ability level is.
Teaching Styles: I am always trying to have a fun lesson. I know that some students are in school all day and are tired by the end of the day, so I create obtainable goals for each student. Each week we will be able to see the progress that they have made without feeling discouraged that they did not reach a certain number in their method book. I want all of my students to work hard and I know all of my students can suceed.
Instruments: Voice, Trumpet, Trombone, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Drums, Recorder, French Horn, Tuba, Mallet Percussion, Orchestral Percussion
Teaching Methods: For begining student I typically start with a book called Essential Elements. I supplement some of the things in the book with other literature and hand written exercise to help enhance learning experience. For Adults I try to find what genre and music style they would like to work on. This then allows me to plan a custom learning experience that best suits them and what they're looking to gain from the experience.
Teaching Styles: To make the learning experience fun and interesting. I first introduce concepts; then connect to well known songs and music that allow you to understand and appreciate the vital concepts and themes being illustrated. Together we set realistic goals, learn from where we may have missed the mark, and celebrate our achievements. This allows me to tailor your lesson so that you may gain the absolute most at of each and everyone.
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.
Instruments: Piano, Flute
Teaching Methods: I typically start beginners with the Rubank method, as it contains a good balance of fundamentals, technical exercises, and fun, tuneful melodies. Particularly when working with children, I supplement this with my own devices, including flash cards and various learning games. I gradually incorporate solo material as appropriate. While I personally am primarily a classical musician, I make a point of including any style that is of special interest to the student in order to make music as enjoyable and relatable as possible.
Teaching Styles: My teaching style is very comprehensive. I believe that a good musician is a well-rounded musician, and an understanding of music theory and history is important to a thorough understanding of the music. I have been blessed with teachers who made these potentially confusing areas fun and engaging, and I enjoy finding ways to pass that on to my students. I also place a high degree of emphasis on listening, both to oneself and to other performers, recordings, and styles. I believe that music is an incredibly important part of life-- from the discipline it builds to the joy and beauty it brings-- and my biggest goal is always to find ways to connect to and inspire my students.

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
