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:
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.
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.
Instruments: Piano, Voice, Saxophone, Mallet Percussion, Orchestral Percussion
Teaching Methods: 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.
Teaching Styles: Being a music educator has brought an immense amount of joy! My personal goal is to share that joy with the student in each and every lesson. Throughout the lesson, I work to encourage the student that they can accomplish each of their goals. I give special attention and acknowledgment when a student reaches a goal and this fuels their progress toward reaching goals that are set in the future.
Instruments: Piano, Voice, Trumpet
Teaching Methods: 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.
Teaching Styles: Fun and fast. I keep things upbeat and focused on the material. There is never enough time during a lesson.I do not take more than 10 minutes on any one topic as the student can do that on their own when they are practicing at home.
Teaching Methods: I always enphsize of good technique postuer and repitition, Practice makes perfect. I use Oxford and Hannon music books. My students must have a strong foundation in all the standard classical theory and harmony so they can apply it to all styles of music be it classical.jazz, old standards or current pop styles. Later on I have them read from the Jazz realbook as well as pop and variety songbooks
Teaching Styles: 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.
