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, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet
Teaching Methods: Various method books are used depending on the students level and instrument.
Teaching Styles: Relaxed. Music is meant to be fun and educational. I want my students to WANT to practice and to look forward to their next lesson.
Instruments: Piano, Trumpet, Trombone
Teaching Methods: For beginning trumpet/trombone students: Rubank Book 1, Arbans Complete Method, Max Schlossberg, Gatti Grand Method, Peretti Book. For beginning piano students: Bastien Piano Series, Music for Little Mozarts, Alfred Series **All books mentioned progressively get harder and can be used for the advanced student as well**
Teaching Styles: As a teacher, I like to focus on each students needs as becoming a well rounded musician. I like to work from a few method books including Arbans, Rubank, and Schlossberg for building up your embouchere as a trumpet player. We will focus in on technique, embouchere building, jazz improvisation, and music theory. I always encourage my students that if there is a piece of music they would like to learn, bring it to the lesson and we will work on it.
Instruments: Piano, Voice, Flute
Teaching Methods: Piano - For beginners and intermediate students I use Hal Leonard's Student Piano Series. Once a certain level is attained, we look at adding repertoire the student might wish to play and if necessary, finding simple arrangements, or re-arranging work myself. For more advanced students, we pick pieces together to include a repertoire of pieces that the student will enjoy and is eager to learn, as well as pieces that may present a challenge, or assist in working on an area of weakness.
Flute - Students work from the Trevor Wye Student series and A Tune A Day. At the completion of these methods we work on a broad range of repertoire including modern and popular arrangements in addition to the traditional classical works. At advanced levels we work on musicality and expanding the repertoire of the individual student.
Voice - Each lesson is divided between technique and repertoire. We work on exercises including, but not limited to, breathing, expanding range and building strength and stamina. At any one time we will be coaching on two pieces, one selected by the student and one selected by the teacher. These pieces will be selected to help work on weaknesses. The work will include coaching on vowels and diction, musicality and storytelling among other things. My area of expertise is musical theatre however I also have experience teaching light classical and pop vocals as well.
Teaching Styles: Watching a student grow to love music is the most rewarding thing I can ask for as a teacher. This may result in a student wishing to pursue music professionally, or simply to play at home - whatever the result, if a student loves music then I am doing my job well. Each student develops and progresses differently and it is important to me to get to know each student and tailor a program that is correct for them.
Instruments: Piano, Flute, Recorder
Teaching Methods: Methods are tailored around the individual needs and goals of the student. Fundamentals in music theory are balanced with repertoire. At the beginning level for flute students, Trevor Wye's materials are often incorporated. For beginning piano, Burnam's A Dozen a Day.
Teaching Styles: Lessons are meant to be fun and educational, but teaching approach truly varies with each individual student. Lessons focus on developing practice skills that the student can use outside the lesson.
Teaching Methods: My method of teaching attunes to the student needs, and flexible when it comes to pieces but I always try to integrate classical music for I believe that it is basic foundation in piano playing. Sometimes I let the student choose any music she likes to learn and try to modify accordingly to the student's level.
Teaching Styles: I have been teaching piano to several children from different kinds of families. Each of them have different goals and dreams, and with this I try to be flexible but make them achieve the highest level of performance.
