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, Keyboard
I began teaching music at church camp in my high school years. This involved guitar lessons playing worship, rock, and folk songs. Since graduating from college in Music Education and Jazz Piano, I have taught students in the Lexington area piano, guitar and jazz. I have been a student of many styles of music, and a performer of jazz, classical, sacred, funk, blues and bluegrass. I believe that my knowledge of styles, performers, and composers, as well as my playing and recording experience greatly help my teaching methods. I have performed with many great players in jazz, including Jeff Coffin, Bob Mintzer, Roberto Sion, Branford Marsalis, Vince Dimartino, Bob Lark and Ron Jones. Loving all aspects of music, I teach and encourage performing, composing and arranging, listening skills, theory and history.
Instruments: Piano, Voice, Trumpet
I tailor my lesson to each student individually drawing of a wide range of reference materials. I work quickly wanted to impart what knowledge I have to my student within a two year time frame. There is always more material than two years worth, but I believe it is important for serious music students to explore a wide range of teachers.
Most of my students want to focus on playing popular standards be it old or current. .My vast repitore gives me the ability to teach them very quickly these pieces if they are at that level of study. I always make sure they are understanding what their playing on a melodic and harmonic level. In other words not just playing by ear, but know the music theory of what they are performing.
Instruments: Piano, Voice, Synthesizer
With a lot of my piano ability I have taught myself and typically amaze people when playing a song. Not that I'm any better than anyone else but the gift that I have is something very precious. Therefore I love sharing this gift with others. I have been teaching for nearly a year now and have been very successful at it. I have students ranging from 5 years old to 55. I teach from primary theory books and also teach to play by ear. Most folks have enjoyed learning to play the way I play a piano.
Teaching Methods: I adapt to each student's needs and wants. I use a combination of method books and repetoire from different genres or from student interest. For beggining students I use the Alfred's Basic Piano Library. When I started lessons this was the method that was used. I also use the Faber Piano Adventures. For adults I use Alfred Adult Basic Piano Course. This method is more fast paced and is better for adults. In every method I incorporate all fields of music, such as theory, technique, composition, improvisation, etc.
Teaching Styles: The most important thing is that my student's are having fun. I love seeing my students improve and gain confidence. I try to build a relationship with my students with a relaxed and encouraging environment. It is so easy for students to lose interest, so I push my students to take on challenges and to celebrate when those challenges are conquered.

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
