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:
Teaching Methods: I tailor the method used to the age, experience, Interests and ability of the individual student.
Teaching Styles: Lessons have varied activities with an emphasis on reading and understanding the music as well as using proper techniques. The focus is on providing an enjoyable and rewarding experience while encouraging the student to reach his or her full potential.
Instruments: Piano, Trumpet, French Horn
Teaching Methods: I am a fairly tough teacher: I expect my students to practice, regardless of their ability level. I believe firmly in scales, etudes and technique! I love watching my students figure out how these abstract skills translate into learning music! I use a few different method books for children, depending on their learning styles. For adults, I tailor my techniques to their interests and abilities, making it more interesting.
Teaching Styles: I love sharing my love of music, and the power it has, to my students. I love that music can open whole new worlds to them; I love to share the history of the music they are learning. The influences behind a piece of music, what it sounds like - these are keys to learning history, science, and more about human nature. I feel that knowledge of music leads to knowledge of the world.
Instruments: Piano, Voice, Trombone
Teaching Methods: All lessons are unique to each student, depending on their needs and desires. We have a lot of fun and I create lesson plans with my students to be sure they are getting the most out of their lessons as possible. Voice: I teach healthy singing. It does not matter what style of music you want to sing, it is most important to be able to sing in a healthy way so you can sing as long as possible! Lessons are fun, creative, and 100% interactive. My students learn to sing with more accuracy, confidence, and strength while learning a vocal technique that builds, strengthens, and improves their unique, natural voice. Students who are in school typically learn to sing in different languages, will learn how to read music, and will learn solo repertoire that will help build their confidence and musicality. Adult students who are in college or out of school will learn the style of music they want to learn the most. We will improve the clarity of tone, solidity of vocal production, breath support and control, and many other vocal techniques. Trombone: Tone, clarity, accuracy of pitch, and good sight reading is essential for trombone students. We work on building a strong embouchure, consistent breath support and control, excellent posture, and how to read not only notes but rhythms accurately and with flare. Piano: I teach basic piano skills including posture, scales, and simple songs that are good for young, novice students.
Teaching Styles: I am very relaxed in my teaching style and love the satisfaction of teaching privately. I choose to teach privately due to the heightened intensity of interaction with students and the fact that we can create a process that is uniquely adapted to the needs of each student. I have expectations for my students and they have expectations for me. I love that. I know and understand that if a student does not understand the method, technique, or approach I am trying to teach, it is not the student's fault, it is mine. Therefore I maintain flexibility in my teaching style and enjoy approaching each lesson as a challenge - and the goal of understanding is always attainable through hard work, patience, and dedication.
Instruments: Piano, Voice, Flute, Euphonium, Keyboard
Teaching Methods: My methods are pretty straight forward. I focus heavily on technique. A good foundation can help a student be their best in each genre. I personalize my lesson plans and drills to accommodate the student's strengths, weaknesses, and over all goal. I will push you to your limits so you can go even further than you thought you could. I also teach you how to be a healthy musician and steer students away from bad techniques that can cause damage or harm them in any way. Ultimately, the students get a say in what music they study.
Teaching Styles: I am no drill sergeant, but I wont lie to you either. I know when you've practiced and when you haven't. I encourage you and always be honest with you about your progress. I am on your side and want you to succeed. That being said, I have a fairly structured lesson. Starting with a breif warm up, we wilk touch upon a review of the previous lesson, technique drills, and then the music we are currently workung on. I do provide music to challenge and stretch the musicianship of my students, but I allow my students to work on whatever suits their interests.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Bass Guitar
Teaching Methods: My curriculum varies significantly depending upon the experience/age/aptitude & goals of the student. For example, a self-taught adult that aspires to play blues or classic rock cover tunes in a "garage band" type of situation doesn't really need to spend much time if any learning to read music. This calls for a more "show & tell" approach. Conversely, a 5-year old beginner should learn to read as a matter of course. This will open doors down the road and will enhance his or her capacity for learning*, not just musically but in all areas of intellect.
No singular student is typical. Therefore no teaching method is typical, nor is the approach to any given student. Technique, thought process, feel/emotion, pulse/rhythm,ear and theory are all explored to a degree that is comfortably absorbed by the individual. The degree of aptitude reflected by an individual student will commensurate to the challenge that I will offer in terms of a reasonable expectation for success or, more importantly, the great pleasure to be derived from making music, sharing that ability and the personal reward that comes with that sense of accomplishment in communicating with music.
Teaching Styles: Everyone has a talent for and comfort level with communication. Music is simply another form of the same though universal and like all art forms, so much more can be expressed with so much less. From an early age we become comfortable with verbal and physical expression. Music is no different; we just don't learn to speak the language as a matter of course. It is a discipline that can be defined, understood and put into practice. I do not subscribe to a specific style of/approach to teaching. I try to ascertain what a student hopes to accomplish when possible and plot a path toward achieving that end. The goal is to make and share music. To that end, it is fair to say that some aspects of musicianship cannot be ignored. Development of technique, the ear & rhythm would of the most primary importance. My style/approach to an individual will reflect my interpretation of what best suits their personality with an emphasis on the creative aspects of the art. Ultimately we are trying to help the student discover his or her own "voice".

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
