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 I have my own book. It focuses on learning a song to play, clapping the rhythm to that song while writing the music notes and making the connections from notes to piano keys. As students progress we incorporate scales, and exercises from such books as Dozen a Day series and learning to compose a song or play a duet with the teacher.
Teaching Styles: My teaching style is to connect with each student. I believe it is important, because every student learns at a different pace and in different ways, so the lessons can not be overly structured. I believe that all aspects of music (playing the pieces, reading music, theory, rhythm and history of the composers) are all important and should be covered in the lessons.
Instruments: Piano, Violin, Viola
Teaching Methods: For beginning violin and viola students, I use the Essential Elements method books. For my beginner piano students, I use the Faber Piano Adventures Lesson and Theory books. For older and more experienced students of all instruments, we'll work on scales and arpeggios, études, and a solo piece. I have studied the methodologies off Kodaly, Orff, and Dalcroze and will regularly incorporate different aspects from their teachings into my students' lessons.
Teaching Styles: I'm a young, recent college graduate, and always incorporate a ton of energy into my lessons! My most important goal as a music teacher is to foster and develop an appreciation of love for music in each of my students. This often means shaping my teaching style and lesson format in order to meet the specific needs of each student. I always ask my students what type of music they enjoy listening to; this helps me to relate new lessons to past musical experiences, and also introduces them to new and exciting music genres.
Instruments: Piano, Voice
Teaching Methods: For all my students I design a fun atmosphere where they feel comfortable, stimulated and encouraged to absorb musical knowledge. Depending on their musical backgrounds and their ability I discuss with my students and their parents(depending on student's age) what is their primary goal to achieve during the lesson, what style they want to concentrate on. When we get to know each other I assign my student with Vaccai classical tune (practices vocal technique) and two songs in style preferred, when a student learns and masters these we move on, with more difficult tunes each time. Before we start with tunes, we first warm up with breathing and great vocal exercises I create for my students depending on what they need to improve.
Teaching Styles: Music is beautiful and mysterious, mostly everyone enjoys listening to it.I believe that people who want to study about music and perform it are touched by it and drawn to want to express themselves through this form of art. That's why I get exited over and over again with every new student I get to help to understand music and learn how to make others enjoy while listening to him/her. I think it's important to let students follow their interests. I don't use any fear tactics to make my students practice, instead I focus on engaging them with the material and exiting them about the result of sounding beautiful with ease.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice, Violin, Viola, Mandolin
Teaching Methods: I begin with foundational technique using etudes, scale exercises and concerto work. I also encourage listening exercises and music theory. Understanding how melodies and chords move helps students to play more musically. I encourage my students to take advantages of opportunities to perform in public and to find ensembles to get involved with. I believe music should be a shared community activity!
Teaching Styles: I help students to learn how to practice so that they can independently make progress. I see myself as a guide to students finding their own success and making their own discoveries. At the end of each lesson I make a point to give my students a clear plan of action for improvement.
Instruments: Piano, Voice
Teaching Methods: I think it's important for students to learn from all styles of music; but if they enjoy one style in particular, I believe it's important to study this style with them and help them to improve upon it. I love understanding what makes each individual unique; so I really listen to them and design a curriculum based on their likes; challenging them to appreciate all styles of music; and encouraging them to become fluent in various genres, time periods and methods. Sometimes, we start at the very beginning; sometimes; we continue the necessary building blocks of technique and artistry that contribute to making a well rounded artist.
Teaching Styles: I love to see my students become successful! I do my best to tailor each lesson to their specific needs and goals. I will always encourage and bring them up to a new level; but I am very encouraging and want them to have fun. I will teach a person as many ways as I can to get them to understand a concept; relying on intuition and the multiple intelligence theory. I am one hundred percept devoted to making the students enjoy learning and feel enthusiastic about the process!

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
