Instruments: Piano Guitar Voice Violin Fiddle Music

Almost all of my experience as a musician has been as a performer of music and as a student of music. The process of collaborative music making at heart is teaching and learning. I enjoy learning my part, and take responsibility for guiding others when appropriate, with the goal of a good experience and stirring performance. I have had only a few private paying music students, and I have not taught music in a classroom setting. Read More

Instruments: Piano Voice Saxophone Drums Bass Guitar Organ Synthesizer Ukulele Mallet Percussion Orchestral Percussion Keyboard

I've been a lifetime musician, and love finding unique and fun ways to motivate my students.  I've worked with most styles of music before, and arranged music for many as well, so I'm very comfortable helping students with a variety of disciplines and interests.  My experience in both the civilian and military music communities has given me a very open-minded but direct approach to WHAT you should learn, and HOW FAST you should be able to progress each individual student.

Gary B

Instruments: Piano

It is rewarding for me to see students develop their passion for music. And, it's important that each student progress at his or her own pace. I encourage this by setting realistic goals for my students at each lesson. I also try to acknowledge accomplishments to fuel a students desire to progress, which gives students incentives to learn more. By trying to find out what inspires the student, I can successfully tailor my instruction to their wants and needs. Read More

Emily B

Instruments: Piano

I provide a warm and positive learning environment for students. I believe students learn best when they are unafraid to make mistakes or try new things, and are rewarded for their efforts. After the first few lessons, I ask students if they would like to participate in my reward system for practicing: I give them a small jar and marbles, and every day they practice, they put a marble in the jar.

Mariantonia L

Instruments: Piano Voice Violin Cello Double Bass Keyboard

I strongly believe in having an open and honest relationship with my student. I think both should know upfront what the expectations should be, such as how long they will practice, what proper progress and growth looks like, as well as what they need from me to help them succeed. More than anything, I want to help my students grow their love for music in any way I can, and that might be different for everyone but that should be the priority. Read More

Joanna S

Instruments: Piano Voice

What is your favorite style/genre of music to play and why?
hymns, they are beautiful and heartfelt. I love playing in church and seeing people enjoying singing. I also love contemporary christian music because like to be creative and play chords and sing. I also enjoy contemporary classical music, becauseit is creative. I like the classical music because it is challenging and beautiful.

If you play more than one instrument, how did you decide to start playing the second? (Or 3rd, 4th, 5th, etc)!
I enjoyed singing and people told me I had a good voice. I started taking lessons and singing in choirs. I really started to grow for the love of singing. It was easier for me to play piano and I was shy about singing in pubic. I started finding out I could play piano and sing at the same time which really helped me

When did you decide to become a professional musician? Was it a gradual decision or was there a defining moment for you?
I was asked in churches to play because I could read music and hymns quite well. I was also asked to play for choirs and that was enjoyable. I was asked to teach at a preschool a music class and that is where it all really started. I really enjoyed that and the students grew. The desire to be a professional musician sort of grew gradually, because I always enjoyed creative art also.

If you weren't a musician what do you think you'd be doing instead?
Music is such a big part of my life, but I really enjoy writing stories. I love art also and love my students showing me their art pieces. I would probably be an activity director in a veterans hospital or retirement facility. I really love helping people and would and sometimes think I will study to be an expressive art therapist. The arts heal wounds that can be very deep. Music, art, and dance. I have learned in studying that in dementia music is the last thing to leave them. The can be very ill but you play a song they know their eyes light up even if they can't talk. It is so beautiful to see. I worked with a women who had frontal dementia a music teacher. She was diagnosed with this disease at 68. She couldn't remember music and motor skills were deteriorating but she could still play somewhat. I would also review theory and she could remember songs. IN performing in memory units the people didn't know their names but the songs they could sing.

Do you use specific teaching methods or books? (Ex: Alfred, Bastion, Suzuki, Hal Leonard) Why did you choose them if you did?
Bastien love the chords Alfred for little ones their way of teaching music is great for little ones. It is so much fun and builds confidence Faber their creativity and able to teach children more concepts of dynamics.

If you have a Music Degree, what is it in (Performance, Education, Musicology, Theory, Composition, etc) and why did you choose that degree?
composition. love writing music and such a blessing to be able to understand and be creative. i enjoy teaching but I also enjoy performing. My love for teaching grew when I had my own children. I so much enjoyed children even more and working with all different types of different personalities.

...some interesting possibilities. I use a fingerstyle technique that I’ll describe below. But, the basic idea is that my thumb plays the bass note (as the left hand of the piano would) and my index, middle, and ring fingers pluck or brush the top part of the chord (as the right hand of the piano would).   Here’s the basic rhythmic feel that I aim for: It’s a 2-bar rhythm pattern. Play the F on beat 1. Add a percussive strum on beat 2 Switch to the A on the “and” of 2. Add a percussive strum on beat 4. Then, play the... Read More

...of potential problems that may make the instrument more difficult to play, if not temporarily unplayable. The pads will go bad even quicker if you don’t swab and then put your saxophone in its case. The ideal situation would be to let your saxophone air out for a little bit after you swab it, before putting it in its case. A common mistake I see is people using a pad-saver as a swab and then leaving it in the instrument when they pack it away. Do not leave your pad-saver or swab in the instrument. The purpose of using a swab is ... Read More

Minor arpeggio example:  Dotted rhythm arpeggio example:    Interval practice—thirds, fourths, fifths, sixths, or a sequence practicing multiple intervals. Try working up to singing larger intervals, such as fifths, sixths, or octaves. Technical challenge—use this time to choose a vocal exercise that challenges you and works an area you’re currently focusing on. Another great use of this time is to take a tricky section of a song that you are currently studying and treat it like a vocalise. Sing the song section on different pitches, slow it down, change ...

How To Find The Motivation To Practice

Nothing I say is going to make the first few months of playing an instrument easier for you, but I do recommend trying to be as patient and optimistic as possible. You will see good results if you engage in thorough, dedicated practice a few times a week. You’ll see even better results if you practice more than that. Once you’ve gotten over the hump, your skills and talents will begin to develop, and you’ll be able to focus ... Read More

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.
