I am new to teaching private on the clarinet. My methods of teaching is to make the lessons as fun. I encourage my students to get actively involved with joing group and stuff and put together a recital to show off their talents. If the students is havining fun, then I am havining fun at the lessons.
I tailor my lessons to fit each individual student's needs and goals, and am comfortable teaching both traditional classical music as well as various other modern genres. I typically use the Alfred books for children who are just starting out, gradually introducing solo repertoire as they progress. For adults, I use materials relating to whatever stylistic or technical goals they may have.
After school I toured internationally with a John Demain / Houston Opera production of Porgy and Bess for 1 year. Prior to that, by invitation of our President-Elect's First Inaugural Committee I had the pleasure of performing at the Inaugural Ball. I was interviewed and performed on Good Morning LA commencing the Inaugural performance. I currently concertizing as solo Neo-Classical Soprano. I have 20 years of concentrated experience as a professional classical and commercial vocal artist and educator. I am just beginning the production of a dynamic solo Neo-Classical Aria compilation project due to be released by October. I have 20 years of concentrated experience as a professional classical and commercial vocal artist and educator. My experience as Working/ Teaching Artist has been tremendously rewarding.
Honesty, Empathy, Emotion, and Sensation Honesty:From me you will always receive the truth in the most supportive and encouraging way. Empathy: I have been where you have been just until recently and understand the struggles of being a student. Your feelings and thoughts are very important to me and the last thing you will feel is like I don't understand, I DO! Emotion: Music isn't simply notes on the page and sounds, it's so much more! Music takes bringing a part of you to the table and we will do that every chance we get! Sensation: Especially for vocalist our ENTIRE BODY is our instrument, therefore I frequently have us explore what is happening physically and mentally to teach and apply concepts. Most importantly, I approach all things from a place of passion. Passion keeps you going when your fuel tank is on empty and helps you to become one with whatever you are doing. Therefore I will speak, live, work, and teach with passion and impart that upon my students first and foremost because it is an important part of being a musician that isn't discussed much.
For very beginning and young students we will usually begin with just a book or two. We will work on the basics of how to drum (holding sticks, striking the drum, etc) as well as learning basic notation. Very early on I like to show everyone how to play something as simple as a rock groove, that is much easier than it sounds. Drumming is something that can sometimes be very hard to work at but it is always nice for a student to see that it is possible and with just that much work they have already achieved that! As students become more familiar around the drums we will diverge into different books and methods depending on their goals as drummers.

Studying music facilitates learning in other subjects such as math and English, helps promote language development, and can even possibly result in increased IQ! Musical activity can also involve a high level of hand-eye coordination and can improve a student's spatial temporal skills while giving them a skill they can have for the rest of their lives. It's important to remember that the biggest benefit of studying music is the development of a lifetime love of diverse types of music.
In home lessons are a convenient option for improving your musical skills, and are virtually the same in every aspect as lessons taught in a studio. Lessons are usually taught once a week and significant progress can be made in a short time. Of course, teachers will suggest that students practice every day for the best results.
Musika offers an annual performance opportunity for all students through our spring recitals in May and June. Recitals are a great chance for young students to perform for the first time, more experienced students to show their skills, and even for adults to show their love of music! Musika students perform most often on piano and guitar, but we also have many singers, violinists, and even drummers - every instrument and style is welcome.
Musika offers a introductory trial lesson to every student! This lesson gives you the opportunity to meet with your teacher and discuss your lessons with no obligation. If for any reason you are not satisfied we will not charge you for this, and would be happy to match you with another teacher if you would like.

Bill has been great with my 2 young children (age 3 & 6). He has integrated games into the lessons - they have enjoyed showing us how to play the games when it is time to practice piano. Bill has been easy to contact and rescheduling has not been a problem if we have a conflict at our regular lesson time.
Review by Steve Newman
My daughter began learning sax in her school band, but she didn't begin PLAYING sax until she started lessons with Debra. From scales and exercises to actual pieces, Debra coached my daughter with real insight, sensitivity, and patience. Her knowledge of the instrument and feeling for music - along with her easy-going,"kid friendly" personality - make Debra the ideal teacher and musical mentor.
Review by Emily
Steve gets you started right away with songs but also goes into music theory and reading music which adds to understanding and appreciation of the music. He is very approachable and you can tell that he absolutely loves music and teaching. It is hard not to be excited about the process of learning with Steve. If you are considering lessons I highly recommend Steve for any level of student.
Review by Ginger
Unbelievably Awesome. My daughter is a beginner and has some special needs. Justin is more than patient and helpful while being completely thorough and pushing her (in a good way) to try harder. He is encouraging and teaches effectively. I am very pleased. More important, so is my daughter. Thank you Musika! So grateful we found your service and connected with Justin. We highly recommend him.

Cory is simply the greatest instructor ever! His 30 year plus teaching experience along with his knowledge of ever longer in music composition and performance make a real difference if you're in for learning the right way. Thank you Cory for teaching me not only the chords but also the history behind it and awesome tricks on getting better faster ;)

After moving from NY and parting from our amazing piano instructor, we thought we couldn't find a piano teacher close to what we knew. We are happy to say Musika matched us up with someone professional and friendly who enjoys teaching younger students. Thank you! We definitely recommend Kuan as a piano instructor :)
Review by William Klepatsky
Very knowledgeable on every aspect of music theory. I listen to recording artists playing various classical pieces, Dan's playing is much like a recording artist's playing. Always on time. Winning happy personality, a great role model. Puts me at ease when I am playing. Have two friends who hold music degrees, I count him a third, something special about the minds and personalities of good pianists. Thanks Dan.

I am a beginning guitar player that has now taken five lessons with Jeff. I cannot speak highly enough of Jeff has a guitar teacher! I have learned more in five lessons than the months I spent trying to learn on my own. Jeff has introduced me to music apps that I can use during my practice sessions, followed up our lessons with comments and/or music, is very encouraging - yet holds high standards. During my lessons I feel that Jeff is very observant and tuned in to your positioning when playing - whether it be your wrist, your arm, or your fingers. He always offers recommendations on ways to try to fix something that I might be struggling with. He really pays attention. As an aside, Jeff is a very talented songwriter and musician. Check him out on YouTube. His songs are very beautiful and inspirational. I'm honored to be his student! - Linda

Andrew is very encouraging and uplifting, but also isn't afraid to tell you your weaknesses. Andrew also is super awesome with scheduling. Fits around your schedule all the time. He really knows what he is doing and can help you reach your goal in the time you would like to. Couldn't have gotten a better teacher, who continually helps me grow and pushes me.
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
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
