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, Guitar, Bass Guitar
I first began teaching when I was appointed by my professor to be the tutor for music theory and beginning guitar class at the college I was attending. From 2011 until spring of 2014 I worked as the music director for an elementary school. I taught all music classes for pre-K to 8th grade, taught private lessons and directed after school bands and choirs.Here I also gained experience teaching autistic and special needs children. In addition to this, I maintained a base of 15-20 private guitar and piano students of all ages and abilities. Having never advertised, my business was built on a reputation for being fun, patient and skilled.
Teaching Methods: I try to find a method for each student, independently from age and level. I believe that everyone is different regarding physical constitution, technique issues, musicality, etc. That is why the method should be built during the course of the lessons with the student.
Teaching Styles: My unique curiosity for pianists’ issues as performers fascinates me at both the advanced and beginning levels. My mentor, Franco Scala (founder of the renowned Imola International Piano Academy), is not only the person who had the most important impact on developing my own personal perspective on piano performance and pedagogy, but he also introduced me to the study of Vincenzo Scaramuzza, from whose teaching technique I am conducting a life-long research project, through which I apply both “old” and “new” methods to best reach my students.
Instruments: Piano, Violin, Viola
I've been teaching privately for 14 years, ages three and older. My mother was a music teacher so I like to think that I've been exposed to the joy and different methods of teaching music all my life. It is my firm belief that talent is another word for "hard work" and I try to instill that work ethic into my students, but not at the expense of having fun! I also prefer to teach students the material that they want to learn because I think there's no better motivation than learning something that you've chosen yourself (as opposed to what your teacher picks for you).
Instruments: Piano, Voice
My goal is to help my students to be passionate about music! I encourage routine practice and together we come up with a realistic standard for progress. I want my students to enjoy their lessons and to look forward to the next time we meet. I want my students to believe that they are truly capable and that there is no limit to their progress once they fall in love with what they are doing: making music.
Instruments: Piano, Violin, Cello, Viola, Electric Violin, Fiddle, Double Bass
Teaching Methods: I begin with developing sheet music literacy in my students right off the bat if they have no experience in reading music. I believe music literacy is one of the most important aspects of learning an instrument. I've always said, "not being able to read sheet music is like trying to be a writer who can't read, it makes no sense". I also begin with teaching proper form. Meaning how to hold the instrument and how to use proper technique. I also love teaching my students through music they like and will be motivated to learn. Music is supposed to be fun, and I do anything for my students so I can ensure that learning their instruments will be fun.
Teaching Styles: I believe each student is different. Therefor, lessons should differ depending on each students particular needs, taste in music, and age. I would never treat an adult student like I would a young student and vice versa. I always try to set weekly goals with each of my students in order for them to have something to work towards on a consistent basis. If my students don't reach their weekly goal I simply have a little bit of a review with them in the beginning of the lesson and then proceed with that weeks work. I do this to ensure that their skill level and understanding of music is constantly progressing, not regressing.

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
