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, Voice
Teaching Methods: Throughout my studies of music education I was exposed to several different pedogies. I have incorporated parts of these pedogies to develop my own teaching style. My method includes focusing on the student's specific needs and learning style to foster the best environment for learning.
Teaching Styles: I believe in keeping the lessons very interactive by making sure that it is not just the student playing/singing. I keep the lesson flowing from one activity, or song, to the next by using a common goal throughout the lesson. I make a goal for each lesson known to the student so that the student can feel successful and accomplished at the end of every lesson.
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, Guitar, Bass Guitar, Ukulele, Recorder
Teaching Methods: For both beginning to advanced students, I begin by evaluating a student's interests and goals. After the evaluation process, I use a mixed method of books including Mel Bay's Modern Guitar Method, reading studies and self made materials and lesson plans. I also supplement each lesson with technology that can include, backing tracks, recording and reflecting, as well as teaching the student to use technology to improve their practice habits and results.
Teaching Styles: I believe music is a universal language that everyone can speak and therefore I have absolutely no doubt that every person has the ability to play music! I pride myself in my ability to facilitate my students’ learning in way that fosters improvements not only in musicianship, but also improvements in self-growth, self-knowledge and enjoyment. Student ownership is at the forefront of teaching philosophy, as I believe the key to students’ success lies in each student feeling as though they are studying what they want to study in a way that is relevant and meaningful to them. In addition, I do not believe there is one curriculum that will fit every student. I believe situating each learning experience in a context that is meaningful and in-line with each student’s musical tastes, goals and aspirations is one of the most valuable components of successful teaching. Consequently, I mold each and every lesson around the individual person.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Violin, Cello, Viola, Trumpet, Bass Guitar, Synthesizer, Mandolin, Recorder, Fiddle, Double Bass
Teaching Methods: I Developed a unique method of teaching string composition from beginners to advanced students as well as in the areas of Improvisation and Composition . Moreover, I enjoy teaching to a diverse age population and a variety of styles from each instrument I teach.
Teaching Styles: I assign music lessons that are appropiate to the students' learning pace. I also adapt different metods of teaching tailored to the students' needs and their goals.
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.
