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, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Bass Guitar, Synthesizer, Recorder, Piccolo
I have been teaching music since I attended high school and have continued to do so for the past 6 years. Improvisation and expression are key points I like to emphasize in all my students, as anyone can sit down and practice scales until their fingers fall off, but being able to express yourself through a musical instrument takes dedicated work and direction. My students are made to create as much as they are made to perform, as understanding how music works and the theory behind it is achievable regardless of level or age. However, first and foremost lessons with me are meant to be fun and I try to create a safe enviornment to both succeed and fail. I have had the most experience playing and teaching the flute, but I am also capable in teaching the saxophone, clarinet, bass and piano. I'm always looking to bring on new students of any age or level!
Instruments: Piano, Voice
I will prepare lesson plans primarily on my students' skill levels. I will assign small assignments for them to work on over the course of each week after their lessons. I will stress the importance of practice and how critical it is to their growth as a musician. Finally, I want my students to have fun and realize the joy of music!!
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice, Cello, Trumpet, Drums, Bass Guitar, Organ, Synthesizer, Harmonica, Ukulele, Mandolin, Recorder, Double Bass, Conga, Latin Percussion
My style varies from student to student, since every student has different needs, interests, and learning styles. For example, some lessons are very formal, professional, and serious, while other students like lessons to be fun, less formal yet comprehensive. It all depends on the skill level and attitude of the student.
My overall philosophy of teaching music is that it should be a life-long learning experience for both teacher and student and that, like anything that lasts, it should be built on a firm foundation. My goal in teaching piano is music literacy which, in turn, brings musical independence, and I begin with a structured approach to learning the necessary skils, reinforced by daily practice. The educational outcome I am looking for is to see my students successfully decode a page of notation at their appropriate level and then be able to translate that notation into sounds on the keyboard. I truly love the sense of satisfaction I see my students enjoying after they have mastered skills and feel that they are "catching on". The book series I use and with which I have seen positive results is Faber & Faber, Piano Adventures.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice
Teaching Methods: I cater the lessons towards what the student wants while emphasizing the importance of fundamentals and theory. I incorporate songwriting and improvisation into my lessons, as well as songs the student wants to learn. I believe all students should be encouraged to be creative, while still maintaining a strong emphasis on fundamentals, thus leading to the creation of their unique musical style. I generally tend to split the lessons up into warm up techniques, repertoire, sight reading, listening/dictation, discussing music the student likes/wants to learn, and improvisation and songwriting.
Teaching Styles: As I mentioned, I believe creativity should be encouraged. I am okay with any pace the student goes at, however I will still hold them to a high standard in terms of effort put in. I try and make each lesson fun and enjoyable, as well as a creative experience that still focuses on theory and fundamentals. I generally tend to split the lessons up into warm up techniques, repertoire, sight reading, listening/dictation, discussing music the student likes/wants to learn, and improvisation and songwriting.

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
