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: Guitar, Voice, Electric Guitar, Acoustic Guitar
My goal is to inspire and invigorate my students with the gift of music. Scales and fingering/vocal exercises can become boring and tiresome especially for new and younger students. I find ways to make these more mundane parts of the lesson fun with games and veiled learning that keep students engaged. Together we'll set realistic goals at each lesson and make sure we acknowledge at the end of the lesson how we've progressed and what we need to work on. By the end of the lesson my students leave feeling confident in their abilities and eager to practice for next week's lesson.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice, Saxophone, Harmonica
I begin with the fundamentals of music theory that you will need to begin playing your instrument, and then I like to get straight into learning songs as quickly as possible. The student may choose what songs to learn (recommended) or I can make suggestions. You will learn a range of skills including tuning, instrument care, song struture, chords, soloing, and MUCH MORE. My goal is for you not just to learn to play certain notes or chords, but also understand why that note or chord fits where it does. This knowledge will be key to your success in composition and collaboration.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice, Drums, Bass Guitar, Synthesizer, Harmonica, Banjo, Ukulele, Keyboard, Electric Guitar, Djembe, Acoustic Guitar
My methods are unique and effective. First I share with my students the history and culture of the instrument. Then I teach how the instrument works, explaining every detail. I use simple exercises that quickly ingrain a foundation for progression. Next I build confidence by playing along in collaboration, while teaching synchronization and tempo. As the student progresses I introduce more exercises that increase skill level. Once ready, we start playing full songs and compositions. Then I begin demonstrating the importance of dynamics and style. I introduce new genres, and then encourage the student to learn their favorite tunes.
Instruments: Guitar, Bass Guitar, Ukulele, Electric Guitar, Acoustic Guitar
Teaching Methods: I don't teach from a book, but for beginners encourage learning popular and recognizable songs that are both fun to play and fun to show off. In combination with basic technique exercises, the right progression of songs allows for goal-oriented growth, always engaging and challenging, and always some new lesson to be learned along the way. If a student has more specific goals then of course it is my job to help him/her achieve them. For more advanced students, experience has taught me that a quick assessment always uncovers a slew of "holes" or bad habits in playing! Every student is different and I will always cater to a student's particular set of needs.
Teaching Styles: I aim to impart a passion for learning and playing music as well as the toolbox that facilitates a life-long relationship with it. There is no finality in learning an instrument, it's all about the journey. Lessons ought to be fun and rewarding, and should be looked forward to. To this end I am always encouraging. I believe books and notation are great for learning, but that an instrument is meant to be picked up and played independent of those aids, so I like to emphasize memorization and always work away from dependance on paper.
Instruments: Guitar, Voice
Teaching Methods: For beginning students who are children, I work on the fundamentals: breathing, posture, phonation, ear training, and music reading skills. These skills are the basis of all musical endeavors, so it is important to teach them these first and to monitor them throughout the process. Once students have a grasp on the fundamentals, I will begin to introduce solo repertoire that is appropriate for them; no opera/classical music before the age of 10! For adults, I find out what the student is interested in learning, and I try to guide my instruction accordingly to keep the lessons fun and engaging, while still working on the fudamental elements.
Teaching Styles: I love seeing my students develop a passion for music and to progress in their music studies; hard work and practicing pays off! Not all students progress at the same pace or learn the same way, so it is important that each student has an individual plan of action and not a "cookie-cutter" method. I foster this individual learning by setting realistic goals for my students at each lesson. I acknowlege hard work and accomplishments, which makes students more eager to learn, and I try to find out what inspires each student so that I can successfully tailor my instruction to their wants and needs.

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
