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, Trumpet, Trombone, French Horn, Keyboard
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** I like to focus and pin point what the student needs the most work with to make him/her progress and succeed on their instrument. It is important to also make each lesson fun, and enjoyable for the student while also learning the craft of their instrument.
Instruments: Piano, Voice, Trumpet, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Recorder
I love to see students grasp concepts. It is extremely rewarding to see students understand a concept and be able to explain how neat it is to a parent or friend. When I get a new student, I get to know exactly what their goals are. We set long term goals, and we make progress by setting manageable short term goals every week. I inspire the student to reach their goals by providing tools to help, and custom lesson plans that are fun and engaging. My lessons also teach grit. Grit is important for any career path your student will ultimately achieve. Students learn to be self sufficient and depend on their practicing. Practicing an instrument independently develops patience and intrinsic motivation.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice, Flute

My method is very much dependent on the student's needs and experience. For younger children, I teach from a variety of different books, with songs and pieces that help keep them engaged at the piano. For adult beginners, variations of popular pieces are great to help introduce them to the wide, vast world of classical music. Each student is special to me so I dedicate as much to to their learning and nurturing their love of music as well. All students have innate ability to love music and I believe I can bring that out in everyone.

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
