Instruments: Piano Guitar
I started teaching private piano lessons to all ages and abilities when I was in college. I have experience with beginner level students ages 5-adult and intermediate level students ages 6-14. I have experience teaching traditional classical piano (reading sheet music), as well as pop piano (reading lead sheets). I've had the privilege of studying under several different piano professors and teachers in the past 15 years. I draw on their teaching styles, as well as my own experience in teaching. Read More

Music is one of my many passions in life, and nothing pleases me more than sharing and teaching others about the wonderful skills that are developed when playing musical instruments. I'm the ultimate people person, taking the best interest in each individual student in order to progress their skills at an appropriate rate that is fun and exciting with each lesson! Music is challenging and can be frusterating at times, but leave it to me to help break down and simplify it so you can gain confidence in yourself and overall enjoy each lesson as we take steps towards your own goals.

Instruments: Guitar Bass Guitar Banjo
I like to teach students a few easy chords to get them started. Hundreds of songs can be play with only 3 chords. I also like to teach students some 2-note chords also called power chords. Rock and roll and blues are often played with power chords. I find that students can begin playing some common rock and blues rhythms only after a few lessons. Read More

I have been teaching on and off since 2010 and now teach almost exclusively from my home studio in Bloomington, IN. I've had the experience of teaching everyone from 4 year olds to advanced adult students and implemented various teaching methods for the many different minds learning styles. I always liked to look at the art of music like learning a language so I have since learned to create individualized lesson plans for my students that gives students plenty time to "speak", that is learning the fundamentals, phrases, and tools to share their personal story and to study the vast pedigree of music that has come before them.

My teaching experience with guitar goes back to about age 14, when I was understanding and advancing faster than others around me or someone would ask me for advice or help. I never had the chance nor opportunity to advance my studies to get a degree. Thoughout all these years it has been shown that some gifts are certainly not to be taken advantage of. Read More

My main music philosophy is to teach sound before sight: teach students to hear the music, and then read the notation. For beginners, I want them to become well acquainted with their instrument so I begin with the basic fundamentals, and then teach some traditional tunes before moving on to reading music. For students who can already read music, I like to work on sight-reading as well as finding solo repertoire that can be performed at recitals. Read More

I certainly have adopted the teaching styles of my previous and current instructors, each bringing a unique approach to teaching an instrument. Patience and understand is crucial with any students, and there needs to be a lot of fun and excitement within a lesson, otherwise, what is the point? Now, fun and excitement must also be met with serious practice time and great concentration during a lesson. My objective is to create a comfortable environment fertile for learning, while at the same time having my students know there are skills to refine and concepts to solidify. Read More

It is highly recommended that young students begin by learning on smaller, half or three-quarter sized acoustic guitars. For older students, an electric guitar may be suitable, on the basis that they can hold it correctly and with comfort. For between $150 - $200, many student model guitars can be bought from new. Electric guitar players will also need to purchase an amplifier and guitar cables, at additional costs. Remember, higher quality instruments are often easier to play, which will likely enhance the students enjoyment and development on the instrument.
At Musika, we recommend that adult students looking to start guitar lessons have a clear goal in mind. Whether your goal is to learn to play your favorite song, write your own music, develop a certain technique, or join a band, the experienced teachers in our network can help you make those goals a reality! It can take time, often months, to develop the techniques and co-ordination required to play the guitar to a good level. The best and quickest way to learn the fundamental skills is to take regular lessons and practice your guitar playing as often as possible.
Students as young as 6 years old are welcome to start taking guitar lessons with the experienced guitar teachers in Musika's network. Students of this age should play on a half-sized classical guitar with nylon strings, and will learn simple songs and melodies on the top strings. By age 7-8, students will start to learn more complex and challenging songs using chords. Around about the age of 10-12, many students express an interest in learning to play rock music using an electric guitar. By this stage, students are old enough to use a full sized guitar.
