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, 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.
Instruments: Piano, Trumpet, French Horn
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.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Bass Guitar, Harmonica, Banjo, Ukulele, Mandolin, Double Bass, Electric Guitar, Classical Guitar, Acoustic Guitar
I typically start out young students with only two or three chords. I try to get their small fingers on the instrument and then , depending on what I see in the first ten minutes of a lesson, I will write hand them a chord chart of common chords. I will explain how a chord chart works and focus on hand position. At this stage it is most important to keep a childs attention and get them EXCITED about the sound of a chord that THEY are playing. Once I achieve that, the sky is the limit. Older students are approached in a way where I identify exactly what a student wants to learn. In other words, each lesson is tailored to the individual. I do teach out of the Berklee, Mel Bay and Hal Leonard programs for students focusing on wanting to become good sight readers.
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, Guitar, Trumpet, Trombone, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet
Piano- Bastien method

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
