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: For beginning students, the Faber & Faber series or the Alfred series are recommended as a core repertoire. A Dozen A Day is recommended for daily warm-ups and I also provide the students with supplementary songs and books of their choice, such as Disney, pop, jazz and popular classical pieces transcribed for beginner piano. For adult students, I use the Faber & Faber method book that provides an overall comprehensive and fast pace lesson style. After the adult has learned the basics, we can narrow in and focus on the style of their choice!
Teaching Styles: Providing a comfortable, yet focused lesson time while actively pursuing excellence are prime objectives! Each student progresses at a different pace, so lessons are designed according to the strengths and weaknesses of each individual. Personal accomplishment is key to the students’ motivation, so it’s important to set maintainable weekly and monthly goals, in addition to performance pieces and recital opportunities.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice, Drums, Bass Guitar, Synthesizer, Double Bass, Conga, Latin Percussion, Keyboard, Electric Guitar, Djembe, Classical Guitar, Acoustic Guitar
A great partial of my previous occupation required that I develop individualized programs to facilitate the needs of various learning categories. I utilize all previously acquired knowledge and experience to facilitate adequate and effective outcomes for all of my students. I am intrigued by the opportunity to encourage, and contribute to the music industry through instruction and performance. I represent the institution with positivity and confidence. I prove effective and deliver positive, productive outcomes. It is a joyous event, seeing students acheive thier musical goals and dreams.
Instruments: Piano, Voice
I have been singing in church and school choirs since elementary school, and during my high school and early college years, in addition to my classical vocal studies, I branched out to explore other styles of music. I began studying guitar and piano, worked as a background vocalist for a local recording studio, and performed with local bands. During this time, I took on my first voice student and realized how rewarding teaching could be! This encouraged me to pursue a music career and take on more students.
For the youngest students, I begin with Music for Little Mozarts or John Thompson method books and a lot of music related games. Flash cards assist with retention of musical terms and notes. I also provide worksheets to help reinforce what the students learn. Later I add exercises to help with rhythm and agility. Older students I begin with John Thompson method books or Bastien method books, theory books, and exercises. As students progress, I add a book of piano solos and adjust their exercises. For all of my students, we search for piano solo material they like and work on those pieces while we are working in lesson books. I firmly believe that if they have a fun piece of music that they select, the student will be more likely to practice regularly.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Trumpet, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, French Horn, Oboe, Electric Guitar, Acoustic Guitar
Teaching Methods: For beginning students I start with basics: learning how to hold the instrument, put it together, etc. Then when that is solid we learn a few notes. From there we go to the Rubank books. At the same time, we start reading music that I find appropriate for them. For adults, it depends on what they want to learn. Popular songs or songs they request. But I also push for technical mastery of the instrument so I push for knowledge of scales and then keep pushing with more challenging/fun pieces. Of course all this depends on the practice and enthusiasm of the student.
Teaching Styles: I am a very relaxed and chill person, even as a teacher. I will push you, though. I know that students' successes must be acknowledge and I do not hold back praise for my students. At the same time, I also bring their weaknesses for them to see. I aim to help them come up with plans to overcome their weaknesses and better their playing. At the same time, I look to see how far a student can be pushed. I try to be fair and realistic with what students can do. I know that if I set a goal that's just above their reach, that they will be able to get it and it will fuel their want for doing better and better.

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
