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, Voice, Trumpet, Saxophone, Flute, Piccolo
Teaching Methods: Because all students have a unique style of mearning, at any age, I usually choose music that fits the student's ability at that time. If a student has a special request to learn a certain song, we discuss if it will be appropriate for them, or if they have to work up to that level. For piano students, I use the Thompson piano series (red book), and for other students, especially flute, there are methods books that I teach from.
Teaching Styles: The one aspect of teaching I love the most is seeing other students develop a passion for it. Every students learns at their own pace, but this doesn't come without hard work. I encourage my students to work towards something, setting goals and gaining rewards when those goals are met. At the first lesson my students will tell me what they want to do with their music. From this information I can cater my teaching style to the needs of the student.
Instruments: Piano, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet
Teaching Methods: For beginning woodwind students, I start with Hal Leonard's Essential Elements or whatever the student's school band book is. Once the student knows how to read music and can play enough notes, I like to introduce scales. This provides a good foundation for moving on to duets and solo pieces, which are more enjoyable to play. Once the student has finished the first Essential Elements book, I like to move on to the Rubank books. For beginning piano students, I start with books by Alfred and books by Bastien, which I have in different levels, ranging from absolute beginner to intermediate.
Teaching Styles: I like to demonstrate concepts by modeling so the student knows what they are supposed to sound and look like. I will sometimes play duets with the student if they are advanced enough, which helps sight-reading and developing listening skills. I encourage students to go at their own pace. For example, if a student is playing band music that is very easy, I will assign them something else to work on to help them continue to advance. On the other hand, if a student is having trouble making a sound, we will continue to work on that and not get ahead of where the student is.
