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, Guitar, Bass Guitar, Keyboard, Electric Guitar, Classical Guitar, Acoustic Guitar
Teaching Methods: I really like using the Piano Adventures method for piano. However, I have used several method books for piano, guitar, and bass students before. Sometimes I do not require any books. It all depends on the student. I try to make a very personalized schedule per student. For adults, I also try to find out what the student is interested in and guide my instruction accordingly to keep the lesson engaging and fun no matter their ability level. You will hear me mention practicing all the time. Without practice the student does not progress.
Teaching Styles: Nothing is more rewarding than seeing one of my students develop a passion for music! Therefore, it is important that each student progresses at his or her own place. I encourage this by setting goals and assignments for my students at each lesson. Acknowledging accomplishments helps fuel a student's desire to progress and makes students eager to learn more. By trying to find out what inspires the student, I can successfully tailor my instruction to their wants and needs. My hope is that one day my students surpass my skills and knowledge in pursuit of sharing it with others.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar
Teaching Methods: As a kid, I really disliked my piano lessons. as a teacher I want to put an emphasis on having fun in my lessons, because music, as i've come to realize, is one of the most fun activities to partake in. that being said, it is essential to know the fundamentals and techniques, so I will most likely use method books such as Alfred's or Hal Leonard's, especially for people starting fresh. But in conjunction with the books, I want to give the student opportunities to play what they want. I have a music notation software, which i've used to create simple arrangements of pop songs from artists such as Taylor Swift or Bruno Mars, or anything else I or the student think would be fun to play. I simply want to give the student opportunities to apply what they've learned to something fun early on.
Teaching Styles: There are so many different ways to approach music, and so many different avenues one can go down, which is why I prefer to cater to the students learning style and interests. I want to bring in a variety of approaches to the lesson such as theory, sight-reading, and ear training. A big regret I have as a student is not learning early on, the framework and inner workings of the pieces I was playing. Not until later, when I became interested in composition and began taking theory classes, did i understand this, and it led me to a deeper understanding of the pieces I was learning and greater enjoyment and fulfillment. I simply don't want students to feel limited as musicians.
Teaching Methods: My methods vary according to the students interests and development. But I also have a guideline of references. For the beginners, I like to use Faber & Faber, Boris Berlin's Four Stars, and some Alfred's piano methods. As we go to intermediate, I focus mostly on repertoire, sight reading, harmonization and, if the student likes, some improvisation. The books vary according to the student. For advanced players, the focus is in the repertoire, so probably we will be using performance editions for the repertoire, with preference for the Urtext (original text) ones. For adults, I like Alfred's method.
Teaching Styles: Since the begining, I focus on sight reading and learning repertoire strategies. I believe that if the student is capable of reading and learning the repertoire quickly, he or she will become much more motivated and the act of practicing will be something pleasant. I like my students to fell they practice because they like to, and not only because they have to. I also like the help the students to build a practicing schedule so they will gradually incorporate the practicing time in their own routine. My main goal is my student's achievements and accomplishments. When they succeed, I succeed.
Teaching Methods: For beginning students I typically start with Piano Adventures by Faber. For adults, I try to offer what the student is interested in. For example, if the student's goal is to play popular songs "by ear", I guide my instruction accordingly and teach the student music theory and how to play the piano by chords.
Teaching Styles: I let each of students to progress at his/her own pace and concentrate on the activities they are most interested in. My teaching style's rooted in classical music and classical piano pedagogy, but I also incorporate other styles of music and offer my students alternative/contemporary methods of learning.
Instruments: Piano, Voice, Saxophone
Teaching Methods: I like to create my own lesson plans and materials, though if the student (or their parent) would like a specific method, I would be happy to oblige. For beginner, I start with the fundamentals of reading music: reading note names in different registers, reading rhythms (I like to use the Eastman system for speaking rhythms), and sight-reading skills using movable do solfeggio (all this in a manner that suits the student, whether a child or an adult. Solo repertoire is kept well-rounded and suitable for performance, with an emphasis both on technique and on expression. Collaboration with other musicians is always encouraged. The most important thing, though, is that the student plays what they find interesting, engaging, and fun!
Teaching Styles: I like to teach by setting both short- and long-term goals with the student. My personal goal is to help the student learn a healthy and strong passion for music and to prepare them to accomplish their ambitions and to continue playing after they are finished working with me, whether it is as an amateur, as a continuing student, as a conservatory student, or as a professional. I want to equip each student to be an auto-didact, capable of teaching themselves, and to be able to teach music themselves.

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
