Instruments:

For beginning students, I typically start with Piano Adventures.  Advanced beginners usually have other excellent methods such as Bastien, Schuam, or Alfred, and I use any method which is acceptable.  Adults, or more advanced students, usually have a particular interest in a certain style of music or keyboard skill which I help cultivate.  Though nothing matches the sound, subtlety and feel of an acoustic - the essence of the art of the classical tradition - I encourage students to use MIDI-aided learning tools to develop their sight-reading skills.  Students may use either a weighted-action digital pkeyboard/piano or an acoustic piano for home practice.

I use the Alfred Piano series for most of my piano students. Woodwind students will use either Rubank or Hal Leonard series of books. During the first lesson, I will clarify the student's goals and needs and choose a book accordingly. I also add finger warm-ups and breathing exercises. Students are encouraged to pick a song from their own choosing to learn as a "fun-song". I try to cover these three things in every lesson, however I am flexible to meet the goals of my students. My professional motto is that I will do "Whatever it takes" for my students to succeed.

Instruments:

When a student first starts taking music lessons, they might be nervous. It is my job to make all students feel comfortable and at ease, so they can perform at their best. I will be supportive and caring for each student while also providing constant feedback as necessary. I will always provide constructive criticism a way that will not make the student feel inferior, but feel encouraged to succeed.

Instruments:

I approach teaching in the most positive way possible. I do give constructive criticism, but I want the student to feel free to make mistakes, try new things and ask questions too. I try to create an environment where they're excited about the music they're learning. I also try to switch it up. My students will never know if we're going to play a game, work with flashcards, use the iPad; maybe we'll dance today!

Instruments:

My teaching experience began with arranging and instructing drum line parts for a youth drum corps. After having children of my own, I realized I had a knack for working with children. I began teaching piano and percussion part-time 8 years ago as a way to share my passion for music.  Nurturing an appreciation for composing and performing music, regardless of style or genre, is what my goal is with every student.

Singing Scales: 4 Scales Every Singer Should Know

Each scale increases in difficulty from the last—begin with major scales and advance onto the next as each scale becomes comfortable and has been sung throughout the vocal range.   Major Scales C4 – D4 – E4 – F4 – G4 – A4 – B4 – C5 (Do – Re – Mi – Fa – Sol – La – Ti – Do)   Major scales are by far the most familiar scale structure...

Mixing Basics: Intro to Audio Mixing

...cymbals or any instrument with a long, fading resonance   Reverb is used to make a track sound natural, as if it is taking place in a larger space rather than a small recording room. It is a random and compounded echoing sound—you might notice its natural occurrence when speaking in a large empty room. When a track does not have reverb added to it, it is referred to as dry, and often a dry track will sound unnatural and empty. The easiest way to work with reverb, as a beginner, is to use the presets available on a digital reverb program. ... Read More

How To Write a Pop Song

...song as a whole.   Other Sections   Verses and choruses are a Pop song’s staple sections, but they’re by no means the only sections. When learning how to write a pop song, intros, endings, bridges, and instrumental sections should be studied as well. They are powerful songwriting tools that can add valuable character, momentum, and direction to the music you’re writing. A thoughtfully-constructed intro is your way to set the tone of your song by introducing instruments, suggesting a tonality, and constructing a mood. The intro is your chance to define a mood that will carry through your song or hint at ... Read More

The Kodály Approach – More than Hand Signs

...in a circle? That is really tricky. Not only are students learning about self-space and shared-space, they have to think about what direction to move in, which is the opposite of those directly across the circle. Add to that the singing (of those three fundamental pitches we highlighted earlier), walking to a steady beat with the correct spacing so they don’t run into anyone, and hearing the final motive and home note when it’s time to “all fall down.” That’s a lot of stuff in a little nursery rhyme! The moral of the story: even if students are “unsuccessful” during ... Read More

The Best Age to Start Trumpet Lessons

...Any parent considering trumpet lessons for their child needs to know the best age to start trumpet lessons before searching for a teacher. Our recommended starting age for the trumpet is eight. Many school music programs will start students out on trumpet in the third or fourth grade. You don’t want to start a student out too young because the trumpet requires a high amount of lung capacity as well as physical strength with the muscles around the mouth in order to produce a clear and consistent sound. While a student younger than the age of 8 could possibly be physically able to play the instrument, it will be more difficult for them to work on their embouchure, and harder for them to provide good ...

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.
