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, Guitar, Voice, Bass Guitar, Mandolin
Teaching Methods: For children and beginning studetns, I will typically start in a level one method book. This allows us to get acquainted with the instrument and some terminology that may be a bit foriegn for some students. This also provides an opportunity to learn how to read basic notes and chords which will highly accelerate our learning process. For those with experience and established musical interests, I will form a plan and practice schedule based around the interest and concepts that the student seeks from their musical quest. Regardless of skill level, my main goal is for the student to have fun and see progress!
Teaching Styles: Watching a student develop a true love and passion for music is the driving force behind my desire to teach. Being a great teacher is about understanding that every student is different and the pace in which they progress and learn is completely unique. Attainable and tangible goals are what I am all about and that is what I design my lesson plan to accomplish. We will make a list of objectives and inspirations at our first lesson. As we progress, I will make sure you are seeing the progress you are making and encourage you the whole way. I will help you to develop a proper practice regimen that is essentially fail proof. Sometimes it is hard to see the strides you are making from week to week but that is what I am here for, to encourage and inspire!
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: For beginners I start teaching basic chords and chord patterns to generate interest for the student. Then I use the Hal Leonard Guitar method to teach the fundamentals of reading music, music theory, etc. Then as the student grasps these simple tools I teach songs to reinforce how chord patterns work and finally move to the type of music the student is interested in. For intermediate and advanced students I find out the level of competance the student currently has and tailor a program based on the needs of each student.
Teaching Styles: I teach many of the standard rock, classic rock and pop music favorites knowing that if you can play these styles, you can learn most anything.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Trumpet, Trombone, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Banjo
Teaching Methods: I have used many of the published methods for all of the instruments over the years. I am always open to any approach that will work for any given student.
Teaching Styles: My goal for every student is to experience learning their instruments in an environment that is both encouraging and rewarding. I exhibit patience with the student knowing what it takes to develop new skills and I work hard in helping each student feel at ease in expressing themselves. I have used many different materials over the years, depending on the individual student's needs and desires to play their music. I do stress learning to read music notation so that you can approach with confidence any piece of music that you would like to play. With the proper dedication, every student can enjoy making music in a short period of time, getting better and better along their musical journey.

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
