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: I use the Faber and Faber method for teaching beginners and intermediate students. This method combines a wide variety of styles in music and covers good technique, theory, and musical elements. There are many great arrangments of both familiar and unfamiliar tunes. There are also sections on improvising and creativity. Note reading is taught and provides a great foundation for later study. My more advanced students study classical literature from many composers.
Teaching Styles: I love helping students achieve success in music! I am kind and patient and always looking for various ways to motivate students and to help them learn. I work at a pace that is different for each student, based on various learning needs and students personal motivation. Students who want to learn a lot and work hard can really fly through the books. I also work well with students who want to keep a slower pace. I am never mean or judgemental. I just make it clear to the student that what can be achieved is really on them: their practice habits and their desire. I can just help channel it in the right direction.
Instruments: Piano, Drums
Teaching Methods: I like to use method books for beginners. If the student is a little older I may get them on the drumset almost at the begining. I like to use duets and play with all levels of students. my philosophy is "Don't sing for me dance for me", these are lessons and not lectures.
Teaching Styles: It is very easy today to record lessons and send students home with different songs to play along to. Drums are much more fun when you play with other musicians and one way to do that is with recordings. Again there is room for me to bring music to the student, but also room for the student to bring something to me that they want to learn. Also a great opportunity to show the similarities between and differences between these two events.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Bass Guitar, Synthesizer, Ukulele
I'm a very laid back guy but I take my playing seriously. music is my life and there's nothing I enjoy sharing and expressing more. I learned to love playing guitar when I was 12 from the coolest guitar teacher ever. he had a vibe that i gravitated toward and encouraged me in just the right ways to get me believing in myself. I try to encourage my students the same way. music should be fun above all and sculpt my lessons to each students individual needs so that they are better equipped to succeed.
Instruments: Piano, Voice, Trumpet, Trombone, Euphonium, French Horn, Tuba
For beginning students on brass instruments, I like to use the Rubank Methods. It is important to me to get the student playing familiar tunes as soon as possible so that they enjoy playing but not at the expense of the fundamentals. Generally, I choose a piece for a student to play and then they choose a piece.
Instruments: Piano, Drums, Synthesizer, Mallet Percussion, Orchestral Percussion, Conga, Latin Percussion
I love to see progress and excitement in my students. This shows that I am doing my job as a teacher! I always have a plan for the start and end of each lesson where we will discuss what we'll be doing during the lesson and then discuss what is to be practiced for the next lesson. I try to make lessons as fun as possible so I incorporate some games to make practice more exciting. My enjoyment for seeing the student progress is the driving force behind making each lesson as successful as possible.

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
