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, Trombone
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, 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, Mandolin, Conga
I teach more than 35 years now. It is a great experience combined of mostly private lessons and classroom experience. I am trying to motivate my students according to their interests and also buy using a worldly music knowledge that we inherited form generations of musicians who ever lived on Earth. Works of contemporary musicians are also used as a great tool for inspiration of my students. I encourage my students to performing public, even in a very small scale. This is crucial fro their self-expression and freeing themselves from eventual emotional inhibitions. It is great joy to play or sing music with others, and they are also directed appropriately.
Instruments: Piano, Organ, Accordion, Keyboard
As a young performer I was under the tutelege of the acclaimed educator Dr. Frank Porto for over 10 years. As my music mentor, Dr. Porto guided me to dozens of wins in many classical and pop music competitions. As I entered my teens I started to gain more interest in jazz and popular music but still retained my love of classical music. I studied jazz with renown jazz educator John Mohegan. By the age of 15 I was playing music professionally. I was in love with music by then and it has been my greatest passion to this day. I was honored to be asked by Dr. Porto to teach for him. With Mr. Porto as my teaching mentor I quickly learned what makes a great teacher. After Mr. Porto died I received another great honor. I was asked to take his place in his music band. I have been successful over the years in learning what excites students musically and using that as a jumping off point to expand their interests. I teach a classical approach to music with an emphasis on classical music, exercises and good note reading skills. But I do not require my students to play classical music if they prefer not to. Because I perform classical, jazz, pop, rock and many other styles of music professionally I can easily teach any style. Some children want to do songs they hear on the radio. And I can include that in our lessons also. Many students have come to me through recommendations because of my success with this approach to teaching.
Teaching Methods: Bastien, Piano Adventures and more
Teaching Styles: I use books for beginners, more advanced branch into songs. Theory. I follow the students interests if any.

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
