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, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Drums
I have over 30 years of teaching experience. I began teaching Music right out of college, instrumental, vocal and general music classes. As a Pastor I still directed musicals and I taught drumers how to play drumset and required them to play for my ministry once they were good enough. I spent many years making my living at teaching instrumental music privately in schools around the area I was pastoring. Presently, I am teaching music classes along with piano lessons and instrumental music classes to many home school students.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Saxophone, Flute
I prefer a relaxed approach, I try to gear the lesson towards what you really want to learn.
Instruments: Piano, Voice, Mallet Percussion, Orchestral Percussion
My teaching style is open-minded, enriched with kind, positive words, and based on clarity. I find that the best teaching style is one that anticipates the student's needs and guides him or her on a stable, rigorous, and inspiring musical journey. The goal is to build a fearless, fun-loving, and mature student of the arts who is confident in his or her ability. I have developed specific techniques to deal with performance anxiety, physical limitations, and common musical challenges.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice, Bass Guitar, Double Bass
I began teaching voice 6 years ago, while still in my own undergraduate studies. Teaching bass and piano quickly followed once I realized how much I enjoyed the teaching side of music. I learned to love music at an early age, which got me into taking lessons, and eventually learning the process that is required to move a student forward. Slow and steady progress in all areas of music is the way I have learned, and is the way that I teach. Singing and playing music with world famous acts like Bootsy Collins, Ben Folds, and the Atlanta Rhythm Section has also provided a view into pop music that is not readily available through classical studies.
Teaching Methods: For beginning students who are children, the method I usually start with is Alfred's Basic Piano Library. This has 7 levels, and takes about 3/4 a year per level. I focus on timing, hand-eye coordination and theory of the music. The reason I incorporate theory at the very beginning is because I believe that once a student starts taking lessons, they should be learning, not just playing. I didn't have a teacher that was very focused on theory, and it really made it difficult learning why I was supposed to slow down or get loud at certain parts. For adults, I like to find out what the student is trying to accomplish. What pieces, styles, genres, etc. they're interested in. From there, I'm able to determine where to go and how to go about starting.
Teaching Styles: Although, I'm only coming once a week, I like for my students to believe I actually care about their life away from piano. I always start lessons asking how their week has been, and what's going on in their life; not because I'm nosy, but because I genuinely do care. If my students are comfortable sharing things with me that aren't music related, they will have no problem learning from me and sticking with what I have assigned and expect from them. Each student is different and requires a different approach. Just like fingerprints, no two are the same. I'm constantly adapting to each studen't wants, needs and constantly pushing to achieve more and more. Acknowleding accomplishments helps motivate a student's want or desire to continue, so I make that a common occurance as well.

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
