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: 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.
Teaching Styles: I am not finished this yet. Will finish soon.
I've been teaching for over 5 years now and I love the challenge of tailoring each lesson to the students specific needs and goals. I began teaching a couple family friend at the end of high school and since then, my studio has developped to 15+ students, many of which just heard of me through word of mouth! My students are encouraged to push themselves, create and work towards realistic goals that they set for themselves. At the end of every semester, I usually organize a recital for students to show their progress to family and friends. If my student isn't enjoying piano and being challenged in the lesson, then I'm not properly doing my job! I'm always looking for new and fun ways to teach piano, theory, technique and all that goes with being a wonderful musician!
I have experience accompanying choirs and playing keyboard in bands, 5+ years teaching experience, and classical performance including chamber music.

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.
Instruments: Piano, Trumpet
The Arnold Jacobs school of brass playing, tailored to each individual student

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
