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, Saxophone
My teaching experience may not be centered around lessons in a private studio, but it is still centered around music and the individual student. I have extensive experience tutoring students in music theory at all levels (from basic reading comprehension to large-scale analysis of contemporary works), and through that I have come to understand that knowing the student as an individual and understanding their desires and motivations are the key to connecting with one and teaching successfully. My other main source of experience is coaching for undergraduate and graduate level vocalists and woodwind players. It requires intimate knowledge of the instruments one is working with as well as an understanding of the music that they are playing at a deep enough level to be able to communicate effectively.
Instruments: Piano, Trumpet, Trombone, Euphonium, French Horn, Tuba
Teaching Methods: I suit my lessons to the individual needs and goals of the student. For beginners, I typically begin out of a method book, but I also use studies and etudes that I have developed on my own in the course of my teaching career. Throughout the learning process, I engage the student with real music to build listening skills, and teach concepts like tone, phrasing, and expression. I also teach all of my students music theory and listening analysis because I believe this is a neccessary component of a strong musical foundation.
Teaching Styles: Learning to perform and understand music is a difficult journey, but one which also reaps great rewards. Performing great music with a skilled ensemble for an appreciative audience is, in my opinion, one of the great joys of life. Unfortunately, beginners are easily frustrated by their lack of facility on their instrument. I believe the teacher must guide the student toward positive practice habits including daily listening and performing, give the student unwavering support and encouragement, provide a judgment-free learning environment while also providing constructive feedback, and most importantly, be a musical role model.
Instruments: Piano, Cello
First and Foremost, I seek to make learning a new instrument engaging and fun! For students learning to read music for the first time, I will divide lessons into note reading, playing by rote, and improv. Through playing and exploring the instrument, I can focus on technique and cement in basics. From there, students will progress to songs and duets from various styles and set goals toward a song to perform! For older or more experienced students, it is important to let goal setting lead progress. We set goals for practice time and future performances, and check on our progress weekly. I pick repetoire based on students' interests and level. I generally choose one song on level, and one that challenges and works on particular technique.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice
Teaching Methods: Same as above: I teach the bel canto method of singing and I teach that to all students regardless of the genre they sing in. I have always said, "There are many types of singing styles and genres of music but there is only 1 way to sing properly. Students in Guitar & Piano are taught how to read music and lead sheets early. Out the gate, I teach the Keys of Music so that students can instantly start playing songs they love and understand how to do that. For example: If you know what chords belong in the Key of C, you can play any song in that key. So, students learn the Circle of 5ths/4ths very early on. This makes the music so much more interesting than playing nursery rhyme lullabies for kids/adults who get bored with that very quickly. Music needs to be enjoyed while we still teach the disciplines of technique and theory. Students are very much encouraged to follow their heart in the musical styles they feel led to do but I also will evaluate and advise based on what I hear as well. Most importantly, we should be skilled artists who understand how to implement proper techniques and we should be able to read music etc. I teach theory withing my lesson times. I do not want to produce uneducated performers. I believe we have a responsibility to do everything to the bes of our abilities. My lesson times are super fun and are focused on achieving objectives. I want to create artists not just performers. In my book, there is difference. Looking forward to hopefully teaching YOU or YOUR children. Thanks for taking the time to read this.
Teaching Styles: I build a lesson syllabus on a student by student basis. This is based on the student's needs, personality, goals, desires and ability. We are all different and we require a different approach.
Instruments: Piano, Drums, Synthesizer, Mallet Percussion, Orchestral Percussion, Latin Percussion
I started teaching professionally in 2012 when I was hired to be in charge of a high school front ensemble. I made sure each student knew his/her music and knew how to perform it well. Afterwards, I was a part of Kids' Orchestra, a non-profit organization that gives inner-city children a music education they would otherwise never receive. Shortly after that, I decided to only teach privately. I believe there is no substitute for private lessons. I love seeing my students grow, and it happens best when it is in a one-on-one scenario. I have taught elementary and high school students, as well as college level students.

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
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
