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, Drums, Mallet Percussion, Orchestral Percussion, Latin Percussion
Teaching Methods: I create custom lesson plans for all my studens, integrating their interests, strengths and weaknesses into a cohesive, dynamic education schedule. I incorporate a variety of different lesson books to ensure musical reading while encouraging consistent exercises in using your ear.
Teaching Styles: My teaching style is fast-paced, fun and rewarding. I integrate many musical styles and genres, from pop to classical to give my students a wide array of musical experiences. I also gig regularly on both istruments, allowing my students ample opportunity to watch me play.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice, Bass Guitar, Double Bass
Teaching Methods: My teaching methods for all instruments are to start with the basics and slowly build the foundation of a good, overall musician. For piano, I begin with Faber Piano Adventures and Beginning Piano for Adults by Bastien & Bastien. With vocal instruction, I prefer to begin with vocal excrsises to strengthen the voice. Once the student is ready, we will move into repertoire like the first and second book of solos (for any range) by G. Schirmer, Inc. Because diction is so important, Diction by John Moriarty is my prefered text. Bass lessons are similar to voice lessons, because we will start with basic muscle memory and technique and then move on to repertoire.
Teaching Styles: My teaching style is built on a foundation of encouragement and self-improvement. For a student to truly progress, he or she needs to be inspired and that's what my job is mostly about. I take great pride in being able to motivate and push students to want to get better on their own time, with the lesson time being available for learning new skills and techniques. Always being positive, even in criticism, is important to me. I believe students want to learn, and need an environment that encourages forward progress in a nurturing way.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice, Trumpet, Trombone, Bass Guitar, Organ, Synthesizer, Accordion, Harmonica, Lap Steel Guitar, Banjo, Ukulele, Mandolin, Double Bass, Tuba
Teaching Methods: Music theory, jazz improv, country, rock, folk, classical, jazz
Teaching Styles: Positive, rhythmic & uplifting
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, Voice, Trumpet, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Drums, Organ, Recorder, French Horn, Piccolo, Mallet Percussion, Orchestral Percussion, Oboe, Bassoon
Teaching Methods: I have developed my own beginning teaching materials. I also use popular method books for intermediate and advanced levels. I give a fall and spring recital in which all students are encouraged and motivated to participate in. I believe in motivated engaging lessons that produce a fun and enjoyable time at all skill levels.
Teaching Styles: I love to see a student express themselves through music. My style and approach is to tailor instruction for the individual student. This is done with the belief that everyone does not learn the same. By recognizing accomplishments and progress, I seek to keep the desire of music alive.
