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, Trumpet
Teaching Methods: Should you decide that a beginner level is more your speed, I like to start off with the fundamentals (vocalists are taught about their muscles and are given accurate tests of their range, breaks, belts and so forth, pianists are taught the note names, structures, placements, fingerings, and scales, and trumpet players are taught valve and holding positions, breath control, and basic mechanics, to name a few). From there, we would start to meld into styles that the student deems interesting and take it from there.For those who are starting at a more advanced level, I always begin with a clear outline of the goals that the student wants from my instruction. Whether they are looking to nail an audition, fine-tune their craft, or are simply looking for a creative outlet, it is important to me that my students and myself are on the same page. Music is, after all, a collaborative effort.
Teaching Styles: Above all, it is important to have a passion for this art form, though that passion can realistically be portrayed at differing intensities and for varied works. My passion for the student's learning is matched to their's, so I prioritize inspiration for what they want to accomplish and see it through. Once that has been established, the pacing and leveling are entirely up to the student, as my knowledge and expertise is happily at their disposal.
Instruments: Piano, Voice
Teaching Methods: The method I use varies on the student. I create all of the lessons that I teach so that they are appropriate for the skill level and age group of the student. Private education is all about individual need and interest. Technology is something that I am trying to incoporate into the piano and voice lessons I teach. I try to step outside of the box to make lessons fun and engaging.
Teaching Styles: I want my students to be excited about their lesson every week!! Along with the goals I have set and music I have chosen for my students, I encourage them to have a say in their learning process as well. Watching my students grow and learn to love music is so exciting. Growth is the key. As the student, they must understand that in order to get to a certain skill level, you have to put the work in. That is when learning can begin.
Instruments: Piano, Drums, Mallet Percussion, Orchestral Percussion, Conga, Latin Percussion
Teaching Methods: For young students, typically I start with fundamental basics of playing. I introduce these commonly 'dull' aspects by casting an interesting light on them. By facilitating common, rudimentary, aspects of playing, it opens up the avenues for improvisation and creativity. Often I teach out of lesson books, typically Hal Leonard or some other popular publishers. For adults, usually I ask them what they're interested in and build a lesson plan that encourages self growth and discovery while catering to their desires. While I love to teach people what they want to learn, I also try and excite the student with new material they wouldn't of necessarily been exposed to otherwise. Many times, because every student is an individual, I will also hand-write exercises and concepts to be practiced that are individualistic to each student.
Teaching Styles: By teaching the student to teach themselves, I try and allow them to explore music and their own creativity as independently as possible. I emphasize the need to express oneself, as well as the need for introspection. The practice of music is a microcosm of life, and I try and instill that sense in each student. Each lessons will entail an improvisational aspect, as well as more standard study of key musical concepts. By keeping the student engaged with their own creativity, I am able to deliver better contextual education to each individual.
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.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar
Teaching Methods: Carcassi Method For Guitar, Alfreds Piano Methods.
Teaching Styles: Using my experience and knowledge I assess each individual student to help them learn in a way that is the most effective for them.
