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, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Oboe, English Horn
Teaching Methods: I create a customized curriculum based on the experience and age of each student. There are specific method books that I use, but my choices completely depend on the individual student and instrument that I am selecting material for. I like to create a well balanced curriculum of fun, technique and challenge in each lesson.
Teaching Styles: My teacing style is what I would call organized relaxed. I create specific goals for each student that are attainable. I continually work to encourage my students to work towards their goals. Seeing the light bulb of comprehension go off for my students is my indicator of a job well done.
Teaching Methods: All piano methods.
Teaching Styles: RelaxedReleased environment.
Piano town Keith Snell
Teaching Styles: My goal for my students in lessons is to give them the following: A good foundation in technique through scales, arpeggios and technique exercises A knowledge of dynamics and the ability to be able to make their own dynamic decisions at the piano A knowledge of improvisation by creating their own melodies and accompaniments A chance to explore there own musical interests, from Classical to Rock An incorporation of games in the lesson to reinforce concepts from rhythm to indentyfying note names at the piano
Instruments: Piano, Voice
Teaching Methods: For beginning piano students I recommend Alfred, John Thompson, or Piano Adventures books. (If you already have books that you have used on your own r with aother teacher, I am happy to use those as well!) Additionally, I will choose a recital piece applicable to their level that the student will work on for a few weeks/ months at a time to be performed at their first recital performance. For beginning voice students, we will work with a few pieces throughout the semester, in addition to sight-reading and theory exercises. From these we will pick a piece to be memorized and performed at the student's first recital. Adult piano and voice students: I work with you to figure out your goal and what you are interested in and will guide and tailor my instruction accordingly.
Teaching Styles: I work to foster a love of music and a desire to excel in each of my students. I want them to practice because they love it and want to succeed! I also feel that it is important to be a well rounded musician, so we will focus on theory, sight reading, composition, musicianship, performance-practice, and other important and fun aspects of music. I believe that it is important to be grounded in a classical foundation (for both piano and voice students), but I also make sure to bring in pieces of the student's favorite style- which I find helps motivate them to practice and enjoy lessons even more. I am passionate and creative and look forward to bringing on many new students of all ages and levels
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice, Bass Guitar
Teaching Methods: I incorporate a students favorites songs (pop, rock, country, etc.) into a students lesson so that they really want to learn and then infuse music theory so that it isn't boring as I'm sure many of us had with certain piano teachers or others in past experiences.
Teaching Styles: Incorporating all of the above elements and making sure to progress at each students particular pace of development is key.
