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: For beginner students, I usually start with a curriculum such as James Bastien and as they learn the fundamentals, we begin learning more challenging classical pieces. For older beginners, I like to start with Faber Adventures because it moves along at a faster pace than James Bastien. Once the older students have grasped the basics, we leave behind all books and learn pieces of interest to them. For adults, we discuss what they goal is and every adult i've taught has started with a different book or set of pieces. Every student's lessons are tailored to their goals, ability and likes.
Teaching Styles: I try to keep every lesson fun, engaging and pass along my passion for music to my students! Nothing is more rewarding that seeing the student go above and beyond simply because they fell in love with the instrument!
Instruments: Piano, Violin, Cello, Viola, Bass Guitar
Teaching Methods: The teaching begins with identifying student's musical needs, goals and tastes. Students are taught a stimulating, thorough, and graduated course of recital solos, theory, technical studies, and a strandard instrument repertoire. For those wishing to pursue more of a classical approach to music, there are proven methods to accomplish that goal established by European Master Teacher and pedagogues. Also, I can teach the know-how of Jazz and Blues though gradual lessons that cover basic scales and chords up to melody and harmony development.
Teaching Styles: 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, 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, 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, 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.
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.

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
