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
I have been teaching choir for eighteen years. I have also taught drama and dance. My choir has won numerous awards and I usualy bring a large number of students to district festival and all city choir. I encourage my students to explore all aspects of music to make a better musician.
Teaching Methods: For beginning students who are children, I usually use the Alfred Music Piano Methods series, and include music theory and ear training as a part of the curriculum. Once students have grasped the fundamentals, I will introduce solo repertoire appropriate for receital performances to encourage and motivate their learning. For adult students, I love to spend time to figure out the students musical interests, and use the types of music they enjoy to guide my instruction so the lessons can be engaging and fun.
Teaching Styles: I am a third generation Rubinstin pianist, and integrating my love and passionn for technique and style of playing into my lessons. At each lesson, realistic goals will be set for students and documented in their learning journal. This also allows their accomplishments to be recognized and acknowledged, which will in turn help them to be eager to learn more.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice, Violin, Cello, Viola, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Drums, Bass Guitar, Ukulele, Mandolin, Mallet Percussion, Orchestral Percussion
Teaching Methods: I believe music should be taught according to how each person is created and not according to a certain curriculum or a "cookie-cutter" approach. All parents may sit in with their students. I offer lessons to all ages.
Teaching Styles: I believe a student should have fun while they learn so I allow students to sing and play music that they love!
I am a professional pianist who expects much from my students with very lofty goals - such as attending a conservatory after high school, participating in a major national or international competition, etc. HOWEVER, I'm quite a different teacher with my very young (ages 3-6), young (7-12), recreational-track teenage, and recreational-track adults. It is very easy for me to retain students for some odd reason, and I think it's because I'm a VERY FUN teacher--seriously: yesterday, a very young student couldn't sit still--most very young students have this issue now and then. at least--so I turned on a recording of a Mozart piece we had been talking about and for two minutes of we (both) compared our respective cartwheels (and I impressed her by showing her my yoga, unsupported headstand)--just for two minutes. After that, she was ready to learn her G-major scaand play her pieces so I could properly teach her. Well, maybe tells you enough about my teaching style!

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
