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, French Horn
Teaching Methods: Faber piano adventures serie; Alfred piano series; John Thompson piano series... etc. (Depends on student's interests and needs)
Teaching Styles: My teaching technique varies with the individual students’ learning style in mind. My goal is to teach you how to play the piano and to appreciate the art of music through music theory while enjoying the learning process. I am a thorough instructor who also believes in structure. Together, we will work through lesson plans on how to achieve your and your children’s goals. I believe in communication and will communicate with you through every step of the way. Every student has their own notebook in order to keep track of strengths as well as weaknesses. I will meet with parents briefly about each student’s progress and what we hope to achieve in the coming lessons. For the busy teenagers and adults, I can provide pointers on how to practice more efficiently. I’d like to make sure the students maintain their interest in learning and having fun playing the piano. Practice is very rewarding because it allows you to achieve your goal of playing your favorite music beautifully, either at your home,or on stage!
Instruments: Piano, Trumpet, Trombone, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Drums
Teaching Methods: I like Faber and Faber piano adventures because they teach a lot like I do. I've been developing a power point and You Tube presentation to go along with the book for those students who need more visual stimulus. I like various curruiculum's with Trumpet and Brass players. I stay around the Trumpet players Bible using an Arban's book with some Clark exercises along with the students band book to help them not to form bad habits.
Teaching Styles: I like to make music fun and lessons fun. I try to give students realistic goals weekly.
Teaching Methods: For beginning and intermediate students who are children, I typically use The Bastien Piano Basics or Alfred’s Basic Piano Library. I use theory & technic books that go along with each lesson. For older students and adults I use curricula I think will best meet the students needs. Students will be given pieces outside of their lesson books that are challenging and fun to play as well as being level appropriate. Learning to make music with others is important too, so I encourage duet playing very early on. As the students progress, they will be given solo repertoire that will make them feel proud of their progress. Each student is unique and will have specific needs. I take students where they are, discover their interests and skills in music, and then take them on a musical journey I hope enriches their life. I use games and fun to teach the fundamentals of music and piano playing. At the end of the semester, I encourage my students to perform a recital piece they have mastered so they can feel good about their accomplishments.
Teaching Styles: Learning how to make music should always be fun! I love to work with students and find out what they love most about music and then help them be creative with the skills that I teach them. Learning to play the piano can be hard work at times, but it should never be something to dread. My responsibility and privilege is to inspire students to fall in love with creating music.
Instruments: Piano, Voice, Mallet Percussion, Orchestral Percussion
Teaching Methods: The method used for teaching a student how to enjoy music should be practical, intuitive, and natural. I begin by training a student how to listen (in the same way that a child would hear words before he could speak). From that point, a student learns to "speak" or play musical sentences. Finally, the reading skills are developed. Through this approach, musical literacy is founded and then the art of mastering the instrument begins by developing sensitivity and fine musicianship. The curriculum is based on the Suzuki method, with an emphasis on standard concert repertoire and traditional methods interspersed.
Teaching Styles: 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, Violin
Teaching Methods: I use Suzuki books but I do not use the Suzuki method. I use my own teaching method which involves violin technique, rhythm study and music listening.
Teaching Styles: My relationships with my students are not very strict and formal, however I do expect that preparation and attendance be consistent.
