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, Bass Guitar, Double Bass
Teaching Methods: I like to tailor my lessons towards the styles that the student is interested, while also teaching about music theory, reading, and any music history that is relevant to the students' interests. For rock and pop music, I find that there are a wealth of songbooks available. For students interested in classical guitar, I like using Christopher Parkening's guitar method; it contains a great deal of useful information and diagrams, as well as a great selection of beginner pieces.
Teaching Styles: I love watching my students learn and grow, musically. I encourage listening as much as possible in addition to daily practice. I like to give my students a variety of excercises or pieces to work on to ensure that they don't get bored or burnt out practicing the same thing. I am very laid back and easy to get along with, and I feel that above all else music should be exciting and fun for the student, whether it be performing in recitals or shows or simply for one's own enjoyment.

Teaching Styles: My philosophy of teaching is to help the student play the music that he or she wants to play and give the student a practical understanding of the guitar and music theory. I teach the skills that enable the student to apply themselves to all forms of music. Each student is an individual and is taught in a manner that inspires his or her personality.
Teaching Methods: I taylor to the needs of the student. Some like to learn by ear, some to read notes. Others simply want to learn their favorite songs.
Teaching Styles: The guitar is unique in that students are free to invent their own techniques/noises.It's part of the fun. Ultimately, making it sound good becomes paramount to the student.
Teaching Methods: The approach I feel works best for teaching students how to play guitar, is to try to create a positive feedback loop. This can be created by finding music that the student likes and that challenges them, but isn't overly difficult to the point that they have to slog through it for months to get anywhere. I also emphasize the point of getting the guitar into their hands everyday. It helps a lot hack away at it as much as possible.
Teaching Styles: My teaching approach is to base all of my lessons on each student's individual musical tastes and goals. So if a student is interested in building speed, we'll work on alternate picking exercises, or right hand patterns for classical and fingerstyle students. If the student is more interested in rhythm guitar, we'll work on that. And throughout, we'll focus on music of the student's choosing.
Teaching Methods: I usually start teaching Guitar chords,and the importance of "changing" chords. I encourage my students to practice on their own,in order to master these skills. Once the Guitar chords are established,we move on to songs,and then on to reading individual notes. From there we move on to Classical Guitar.
Teaching Styles: I usually play a few different songs or pieces for my students,initially,then I try to find out what styles of Music the student enjoys. If a student really likes a certain song,it is easier to get the student to practice and master these songs.
