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, Drums, Bass Guitar, Organ, Synthesizer, Ukulele, Mallet Percussion, Orchestral Percussion, Latin Percussion
Teaching Methods: I've actually written and produced my own music theory book that was in all Borders stores before they closed down. I've learned a few methods and I try to incorporate them all unless the student or parents wants something specific. My method is a method where I can teach 1 thing countless ways. I love my students to learn theory because it is a very important backbone to music. Some people can play instruments without ever really kwoing what they are playing or understand the theory behind it, and I think it holds them back from truely being creative and understanding of music. With my methods students will be able to play from any genre, any book, and hopefully will be able to create their own music.
Teaching Styles: The way I learned is the way I teach. I was taught the same way multiple ways and because of this I can give students different avenues to learn the same thing. So if they don't understand it in A, or B, I still have C, and D as a back up. I try to include the student to help navigate their own lesson plan and figure out what they want to focus on. Too many times a student is learning things they don't fully understand or even want to understand. having an open line of understanding and communication is something I value and hold dear to my teachings.
Instruments: Piano, Voice, Recorder
Teaching Methods: My method of teaching is non-traditional. I start off sometimes with using vocal tai chi, check our my videos. I allow the student to get in touch with the body and sound in the voice, this helps the student to use an analogy of how to get the sound out of the voice. Another method I use and much rather be in the gym are real exercises. I show the student how to reach the notes that they think are impossible effortlessly but more importantly out of all the techniques, I bring them back to the books, internet and facts to show them the operation of the voice so they will know if they are experiencing any pain then they are not doing it properly.
Teaching Styles: My lessons consist of listening to the client. You know how you go to the dr and they ask you, what is wrong and you began to try to explain your diagnosis and they put your through a cycle of tests? Well I do the same with my students, my favorite are the shy, quiet types. I am not sure if you call it a lesson for the first time but we sure do have fun and learn a lot. We try to make sure that everyone is comfortable and know the basic before proceeding. I take each person at their own paste, so they can keep up with themselves. I allow them to take notes, bring a voice recording device and water. It is important that you have tools of the trade. I expect each person to come in with a goal and to accomplish it upon leaving. Voice warmups are different based on the need, so I can not be traditional. Customers need to know that we have invested and will continue to invest in our passion of teaching and giving others opportunities to do the same.It is important to know more than one style of teaching. For example, NATS (National Association for Teachers of Singing) we share ideas and it keeps us current and up to date on new trends and ideas. You know what I love most? We make sure that the person has everything they need and if one teacher can not give it to them, we send them to the next to get what they need. We work as a family unit to ensure the best quality of the client.
Instruments: Piano, Synthesizer, Keyboard
Teaching Methods: For students who are just beginning their musical journey, we will explore the fundamentals of the piano with some classic technique and home made exercises, as well as knowledge on key musical theory topics. Understanding the theory behind the notes unlocks important aspects of both the music and the piano. From there we will progress into pieces of music ranging in emotion and style, whether for performance or personal gratification. I try to cater the lesson to your needs, wants and ability, as enjoyment is key!
Teaching Styles: Nothing brings me more joy than seeing someone accomplish their goals, especially when its something as special as music. Setting goals and tackling them step by step plays a huge role in learning anything, and piano is no different. Small goals quickly become big ones as they are stacked on top one another, bringing about a sense of accomplishment from the student - propelling them even further and inspiring their will to bring about further success. Tapping into this formula and sticking to it, together, we'll make your musical dreams come true!
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Trumpet, Trombone, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet
Fun and Focused
Instruments: Piano, Violin, Cello, Viola, Bass Guitar
The learning process should be, for the most part, fun and based upon a strong relationship between the teacher and the student. Curriculum and lesson plans are based on student's abilities and aspirations with appropriate balance between theoretical and practical work. The lesson material is always carefully chosen, and when necessary, adapted to specific learning needs. With a proper approach, everyone can learn to play music. Whether you want to pursue a music career, or just play for fun and enjoyment I can help you attain your goals. From basic piano and stringed instruments, to advanced theory, harmony, composition and improvisation to jazz, pop and rock. Classes are not based on a single source or book. I provide other exercises in printed form for students to keep and take home.

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
