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:
Music has to be fun and rewarding for the students. I find that associating music with nature and art and their social experiences allows the students to enjoy learning the piano from the very first lesson. I cannot use one method for all students. I identify the goals, experience and personality of the students and develop a method that is effective for each one.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Drums, Bass Guitar, Mallet Percussion, Orchestral Percussion, Conga, Latin Percussion
Teaching Methods: For beginning students, I normally start with Alfred's Drum Method. This book works on the fundamentals of reading snare drum music and basic technique. Once the students grasps the basics on reading and playing with a metronome then we tend to move to Tommy Igoe's Groove Essentials (while still working on the Alfred's Method). After the student has began to play with the audio tracks and have succesfully gone through a few lessons from Groove Essentials then we begin to work on some solo repertoire and personal favorites as well.
Teaching Styles: As a teacher, my main goal is to see my students succeed and grow as a musician at their own pace. I focus on improvement and progress. I like to challenge my students with new material every week and new techniques. Even though every week we will be learning new things, I help my students grasp the concepts that I teach before we move to the next step. Nothing is more gratifying than seeing students experience the joy of making music and playing.
Instruments: Piano, Voice, Keyboard
I began my teaching experiences in college through pedagogy, and voice technique and anatomy and physiology classes. I also was taught to accompany students on any instrument with my piano teacher. I starting teaching privately on voice and piano in college, and have continued giving private lessons to students of different ages, and levels for a year now. I encourage students to study musical genres and styles that interest them. I encourage them to become active participants in performing in churches, choirs, competitions, and recitals. I am also able to train students to accompany themselves on piano while singing for those who are interested in pursuing music therapy in the future. I believe that singing, and creating music should be fun. If not, than I am not doing my job. I also include sight-singing, and basic music theory into my lessons in order to give the students a well-rounded training on their instrument. I also highly encourage singers to practice yoga, because it can enhance breathing technique, as well as eliminate muscle tension and soreness that can affect one's sound.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice, Violin
My teaching style is defined by a combination of high standards, understanding, nurture and patience. I will set realistic goals for each student based on his/her abilities. I will encourage and try new ways to explain or demonstrate a skill that the student is having difficulty with and I will be extremely enthusiastic about their accomplishments. However, I will assertively make it known if the student shows that they have not been practicing in a supportive way. I give my students tips and instructions on how to practice. Assignments are not removed from their practice list until they have been mastered.
Instruments: Piano, Voice
I have taught students on and off since 2013. Since then, my studio has grown. I now teach over a half dozen students of all ages piano and voice. I personalize each lesson to suit a student's desires and needs. One of my favorite things to do is to try to figure out what type of learner a student is. (Auditory, visual, kinesics, etc.) I tailor the lessons to suit their style and allow them to learn a song easier. This method is especially helpful when I am teaching very young beginning students. I thrive teaching children between 6-9. I emphasize consistent good practice for a short period of time. I encourage my students to fit their practice in transitional times. Practice after dinner, practice before your homework, etc. for 5-10 minutes. It is consistent good practice that allows you to progress faster rather than long unfocused work. I find my students love this idea and it gives them proper freedom in their practice.

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
