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, Drums
Teaching Methods: My method of teaching involves a musically comprehensive approach. Through practice in rhythm, harmony, melody, theory and ear training, my players become well rounded musicians. The goal is to be able to have an intelligent musical conversation with your instrument, and to know how to play whatever you want to play. In my lessons reading sheet music is optional, but not required. I want my students to know that there is more to playing than just what's in the ink.
Teaching Styles: I always approach teaching on an individual basis. I find out what the student loves about music, and what made him or her want to learn in the first place. We set realistic goals for pace and have fun. I often mix traditional work with fun work. For example, alongside conventional ways to learn melody and harmony, I'll tie those lessons into specific songs or pieces of music that the student likes, to show the relevance of the material and the importance it has, at the same time keeping the student interested. In my opinion, tying knowledge together with real world expamples is one of the best ways to learn and retain material.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Violin, Saxophone, Drums, Bass Guitar, Harmonica, Lap Steel Guitar, Banjo, Ukulele, Mandolin, Recorder, Electric Violin, Fiddle, Mallet Percussion, Latin Percussion
Teaching Methods: For young students, I start them in beginner books while singing fun songs that motivate them. For older students I pick method books more specific to their age, learning style, and progress while still focusing on key points of interest for the student. After any student gets through some of the basic method books, I switch to Berklee College of Music method books.
Teaching Styles: I love seeing students of all ages take interest in music. Therefore, the most important goal for me is to ensure they continue to practice. With that in mind, I set realistic practice goals and lessons, individually structured for each specific student.
Instruments: Piano, Violin, Viola
Teaching Methods: For very young beginning students I use the Suzuki Method. Lessons are fun and also educational. For young traditional students I use Essential Elements and basic scales, then progress on to Mazas, Wolfarht, and concertos by Seitz and de Beriot. For advanced violin students, there are Galamian scales, Kreutzer, Dont, Gavines, Paganini, and also the standard concertos taught at conservatory. My approach is low-key, but firm.
Teaching Styles: I do my best to tailor my approach to the individual student as students have a variety of goals. A child of 3 will need a very flexible and friendly approach but an older student that hopes to attend a conservatory may need more reinforcement that daily practice is paramount to success. Adults that wish to study are welcome to tell me what musical styles they wish to pursue. Lessons will be fun and flexible for those students.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice
Teaching Methods: Depends on the student - there is a lot of great methodology out there. I like to pick one that best suits the student.
Teaching Styles: Very relaxed and fun environments promote learning!
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Saxophone, Flute
Teaching Methods: For piano students I highly recommend the Alfreds books for beginners. After you have some background we can work with the music of your choice, classical, jazz, pop, RnB etc. Some of my specialties include teaching people how to turn chord charts into music, how to improvise and how to use music theory to improve your understanding of music.
Teaching Styles: I prefer a relaxed approach, I try to gear the lesson towards what you really want to learn.
