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, Voice, Saxophone, Mallet Percussion, Orchestral Percussion
I begin with a basic assessment of the students overall musical abilities. Based on the that assessment, I assign them books that are for their level and create an individualized learning plan for them. Each lesson includes a time of warm up, technical practice, repertoire practice and the study of music theory. On a monthly basis, we revisit the learning plan and adjust it according to the students progress.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice, Trumpet, Bass Guitar, French Horn, Tuba, Keyboard, Electric Guitar, Acoustic Guitar
Sometimes musicianship is as much "caught" as it is "taught." So, it's important to carefully monitor and foster a student's progress. I will use a lot of coaching, affirmation, reassurance, and encouragement to fuel a student's progress and desire to stay with it. Training in several disciplines help to identify and cater my teaching style to the needs of the student. I don't use a "cookie cutter" approach to teaching. Again, I call my teaching style and methods "student-centered." Though every student moves at their own pace, I work to keep each one on the leading edge of their progress.
Teaching Methods: Most of my students use Alfred's Piano Course. After just a few lessons, we add in additional books and songs to expose the student to as much music as possible. I believe that the more music a student is exposed to, the better a musician he or she becomes. With the exception of recital pieces, I rarely spend more than a few weeks on one song, but instead focus on guiding students to play a wide variety of music at their level. Piano lessons should be engaging and exciting, no matter a student's level!
Teaching Styles: I am not a passive bystander at lessons; I jump right into the music and guide students on how to best read and play each song. A theory-centered approach to piano is very important. When your child takes lessons, he or she won't merely learn how to play piano, but how to understand and love all music. Every child is capable of learning how to play piano and of being proud of what they have accomplished. My job is to harness the innate ability hidden within each student, and help them accomplish reasonable goals to inspire a lifetime of music.
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.
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.

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
