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:
I like to cater specific methods to each student because they all have different learning styles. I have had students that learned faster by aurally, rather than visually. Sometimes I like to combine ear training with learning new pieces rather than strict sheet music reading. Some students enjoy reading music and find that it is easier for them. Piano Adventures by Faber and Faber are one of my favorite method book series to go to when teaching piano. I also enjoy method books by Denes Agay.
I believe patience and consistency are key to successful learning. I try to model these qualities for my students. My goal is to create an environment in which effective student practice becomes a part of the daily routine, so that once students come to lessons we can work together to solve the musical problems the piece presents. Students bring their enthusiasm and I bring my support—together, we learn to interpret and create the music.
Instruments: Piano, Oboe, Bassoon
Teaching Methods: I believe everyone has a song in their heart, and I take it upon myself to give them the tools to make it come to life. Every student needs to learn the basic fundamentals of music theory, ear training, rhythm and dexterity. However, experience has shown me how differently people learn, so I zone in on what works best for the student and customize lessons towards their own goals and strengths. I will teach out of various lesson books as needed and introduce concepts and excercises while immediately getting the student playing songs of interest.
Teaching Styles: I'm very friendly and patient. Learning music should be enjoyable, and never a burden. My students learn at their own pace and have fun doing it. I'm happy to work with youngters, providing they have a basic grasp of letters and numbers. Older beginners are some of my favorites, those who may have always wanted to learn and never had time before. It's never too early or late to bring music into your life, as it helps with concentration, dexterity, and relaxation!
Instruments: Piano, Voice, Saxophone, Flute
I start all of my students by ear, using echoes to learn simple patterns and three-note songs. To introduce note reading, I use a mix of Standard of Excellence and Alfred and Thompson Prep courses, depending on the student's age and prior musical experience. When they are ready for two hand music, I use both the Alfred Lesson Books and the John Thompson Piano Series for regular practice and for sightreading. I encourage students to find music on their own via music stores, internet resources, and school ensembles.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Bass Guitar, Organ, Synthesizer
I have been teaching music, mainly guitar and piano, off and on for almost 15 years. My style varies on the age of the student, what they hope to achieve and where their strengths lie. I feel it's important for the student to learn the fundamentals while simultaneously having fun with their instrument and exploring the music they feel passionate about. I also like to focus on composition and performance while helping them develop their own 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
