We'll then reach out to the teachers for you.
Schedule the risk-free trial lesson directly with the teacher.
Continue with that teacher or try someone else.
Methods are based entirely on how the student learns.
I adjust to the students (or students parents) needs. I like to advocate the joy and fun of playing music but I also understand that expecations need to be met.
For beginning piano students, I use the method books from Faber's Piano Adventures series. If the student gets bored with one method book, I will mostly likely top it off with something else from Alfred. I stress mostly on counting proper rhythm, learning alphabets, and finger numbers for early age groups. For intermediate students, I would expect students to already be able to read music aside from the rhythm challenges. I will move on from where the student last left off from his/her former piano/voice teacher. Aside from Faber and Alfred, I also have Bastien method books that I have taught from during my decade of piano teaching experience. Of course, these aren't the only method books I have come to uncover. As for voice, I have a set of vocal warm up scales from major and minor scales and patterns that my own former voice teacher has provided me. I am very familiar with all the warm up techniques as well as breathing and how warming up techniques need to closely connect with the breathing. Since I have performed in recitals and sung over the grand piano in a church, I will be able to guide beginning students at least with how to establish a certain type of singing voice.
One of the pillars of learning that I hold to from my own experience as a private lesson student is the pursuit of excellence. I have been teaching individual lessons consistently for the last 8 years, and in that time I have learned that no two students are alike. I understand that each student requires my individual attention and focus and through that focus I make it a priority to learn how my student learns in order to provide the best, most fun experience they can have learning music and developing their skills. I believe that learning music can be compared to learning a language, sport, or skill; it requires consistent practice. Through developing a realistic practice regiment with my students, and providing a tailored instructional system for them I have seen incredible gains in student's personal acheivement and the realization of their musical goals.
Growing up, I always had the "teacher gene:" I was the little kid teaching all the other kids everything I knew. Tutoring came naturally, of course, and when I graduated high school, I gave after-class lessons at a school in all sorts of subjects. When I was in college, I started teaching voice and music theory in a volunteer program that helps high-school students from underserved communities. After taking a few vocal pedagogy and music education classes, I started taking on my own private students. My last year of college, I interned at a "Parent and Me" music school (for toddlers, babies, and young children); and I got hired there after graduation. I have since worked at a few music schools, and I currently teach a college vocal lab.

An education in music carries over to all other aspects of life. Not only do students learn music and how to appreciate various genres, but music lessons can also help to improve academics. Music students tend to score higher in science, math, and language skills tests.
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.
The teachers in our network bring the creative stimulation and structure of a private music school setting to the privacy and comfort of your own home. A busy course load, heavy parental duties, or a full work schedule doesn't need to get in the way of your music lessons experience. We can come to you!

I would like to thank Polina for the series of classical piano lessons I've taken recently. Polina is a fantastic teacher and a high class performer, and I'm really happy I had a chance to meet her! I believe anyone can benefit from the teaching method Polina is practicing regardless of the student proficiency - from beginners to advanced performers. It was a pleasure for me to study classical piano courses under the guidance of such an intelligent & professional teacher! Without doubt, my playing technique has improved a lot and I have signed up for the new classes online already.

thank you musika and ed. I never thought of looking for an in-home lesson until I found musika. I have absolutely no hesitation that Ed is beyond capable. He's even offered to meet us at a music store to purchase the correct fitting instrument. how fabulous is that! We've also decided to extend the lesson time from 30 to 45 minutes. All this and just one lesson under our belt. He quickly understood where my daughter is at in level and her style of music. I'm thrilled as can be.

“Lynn has taught my daughter guitar for 9 years. She has always managed to keep her engaged and provide an exceptional learning experience. She tailors the lesson specifically to the student’s interests and abilities. She provides many opportunities for students to showcase their talents outside of lessons. We love working with Lynn.” Maureen Young, Dir. of Finance, Aug 2015

Henry is teaching my daughter how to play piano. Henry is an excellent teacher, we really like and appreciate him. His teaching style works very well for my daughter, she is comfortable which makes learning enjoyable. Henry is very patient and I can see that he is passionate about teaching music. Great teacher for sure.
Review by Pat
Henry has been a great piano teacher since I started lessons about a month ago, and he is helping me realize a lifelong dream. He is patient, plays beautifully, is easy to learn from and a very nice person. I took lessons as a child for a year or so, but never followed up over the years. I always said that I would once I retired and found the right instructor. That time is now. Thank you Henry and Musika!
Review by Ruslan
She is the most amazing teacher ever. She is not only w great teacher but she's so fun to work with. She has taught me so many things in such little amount of time things I didn't even know I could do. I recommend Andrea to everyone. She is an amazing singer and cares a lot about her students. She's the best!!

Stephanie is an excellent voice teacher! Our 10-year-old daughter enjoys her lessons with Stephanie each week. She has an amazing way of connecting with our daughter through music. Stephanie knows how to offer constructive feedback in a positive way that keeps our daughter interested and wanting to learn more. I would recommend Stephanie without hesitation.
Review by Anita
Our daughter has only been playing the piano since March. Tony replaced our other teacher who had a job transfer and could no longer teach. Tony is fun and encouraging. My daughter is playing Taylor Swift and Christmas songs and is playing the piano more than ever before. Very happy so far with Mr Tony
Review by Wilma
Gina is very supportive and encouraging. Even though I get frustrated with my progress, she can tell that I've been practicing and reminds me of how far I've come. She challenges me to learn new skills without giving me a piece that I cannot master (with practice). I'm happy that she is my music teacher and look forward to many more lessons in the future.
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.
