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.

Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice, Violin, Cello, Viola, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Bass Guitar, Lap Steel Guitar, Ukulele, Electric Violin, Double Bass, Oboe
Teaching Methods: Music theory

Instruments: Piano, Voice
Teaching Methods: a
Teaching Styles: a
Instruments: Piano, Voice
Teaching Methods: For beginner students I start with the basic for both piano and voice. For voice we start with breathing, pitch, and starting a healthy techinque and proper places to sing from. For piano I follow the Alfred's serious and begin with music theory as well. Once my students advance we begin with new solo repertoire and more advance theory and sight reading. The more advance the student become the more intense and difficult the material will become. All students lessons are goal based and will move at their pace.
Teaching Styles: My favorite moments while teaching is the light bulb moments, for these to occure lessons are goal based and created around the students level of exsperiece, future goals, and personal goals. In the first lesson we set mini goals for each lesson, medium goals for the month, and large goals for something we want to work towards or a up and coming competition. I use a positive environment to help student feel good about their accomplishments, but also have them discover areas of improvement by recording them or asking them what they feel they did well and what they feel they need to work on. By working with my goals and the students goals we come to a common ground to have the best possible lesson.
Instruments: Piano, Bass Guitar, Double Bass, French Horn
Teaching Methods: Depending on a student's interests, I could start with several books like Rufus Reid's Evolving Bassist (for all-around bass playing). If reading skills are a main goal of a student's focus, I use repertoire from the standard canon and IMSLP. I feel that improvisation is an often overlooked key to self-expression and mastery of one's instrument, so I introduce concepts used in making up solos and some theory as soon as possible. A few other other technique methods I use especially on double bass are Fred Zimmerman's Contemporary Method of Bowing Technique and Ray Brown's bass method.
Teaching Styles: One of the best things in life is playing music with other people. Unlike sports which eventually can wear your body down till you're unable to play anymore, music is something we can all take part in up through very old age! Whether a student wants to pursue a freelance career or just maintain a hobby that gives balance to their life I teach to their goals.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Bass Guitar, Organ, Synthesizer
Teaching Methods: For beginning students, I start with the traditional Mel Bay beginner books that focus on the fundamentals while building strength and coordination and just build from there. For students with a little more experience, I like to focus on more challenging exercises and concepts while nurturing their knowledge of music theory and performance. Each student is different and knowing what motivates them motivates me. My goal is to have them want to pick up their instrument and play.
Teaching Styles: Every student is different. Music Theory, various styles and forms and performance are all important and part of the main focus. I also like them to learn songs and styles that are what they like. I find this not only encourages them to play and explore more on their own, but keeps their focus on developing their own voice.
