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, Trumpet, Trombone, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Organ, Synthesizer, Recorder, Euphonium, French Horn, Tuba, Piccolo
Teaching Methods: The method of teaching doesn't change for the age of the person I'm teaching. The method I use is this: 1) Assess where the student is in life 2) Assess where the student is musically 3) Assess the needs and desires of the student (and guardians, if applicable) 4) Review various in-print and self-made resources 5) Develop a flexible comprehensive cirriculumn 6) Encouage, encourage, encourage
Teaching Styles: Each student is different. Education is not a one shoe fits all deal. Each students learns in unique ways, shapes, and forms. Educators should always, always guide the student in setting goals and meeting/exceeding said goals. Celebrating accomplishments is vital to fueling a desire to progress in this mix.
Teaching Methods: My instruction is fun, focused and my students learn a lot of valuable information right off the bat. We work towards building up a repertoire of songs they can actually play from memory. We focus on being able to sight read no matter where the student is at the time. I use a variety of music books, flash cards, original songs, and more!
Teaching Styles: Each week I expect my students to practice when they can and we talk about how much is expected of each one based on their level and available time each week. I am most certainly relaxed and fun during lessons but I want them to get as much out of the time we have together as possible.
Instruments: Piano, Voice
Teaching Methods: My philosophy is to foster student growth and creativity, through the learning of Bel Canto exercises and allowing students to make their own repertoire choices. We release the voice through learning how to release tension and sing with a healthy sound, and then we apply that to the style of repertoire that you have chosen. My number one priority with my students is that they are singing with a healthy and clear tone, and that their voices will be versatile across all singing styles. Improvisation and aural skills are also very important to me, as you will definitely need your ears to become a successful performer!
Teaching Styles: I love teaching. Nothing makes me happier than seeing a student's voice open up and the joy on their face as they improve. After the initial lesson of getting to know you and your voice (or piano abilities), I will begin to teach you different exercises that we will use to get your voice into healthy habits. I do not work out of a method book, so this will challenge your aural memory (it's a good idea to record your lessons!). A few weeks in, we will pick a song for you to apply these habits you have been fostering through the chosen exercises.
Instruments: Piano, Clarinet
Teaching Methods: I do not have a set typical method I use for all my students because everyone is different. I begin with assessing a new student to find what their goals are and their commitment level is. All of my students find their lessons to be challenging, but my goal is to also provide them with a nurturing and creative atmoshpere. My students find that they make significant improvement every week.
Teaching Styles: My goal is to teach my students to be musicians, and for them to walk away every week with a deeper appreciation for music. I believe in nurturing all my students' creativity while challenging their skills to help them achieve their goals. I continuously acknowledge their achievements, but will remind them of what needs improvement. My students are given multiple opportunities to perform as a soloist or as part of a small ensemble in recitals throughout the year.
Teaching Methods: I believe that piano lessons should be fun as well as educational, and incorporate theory, history, and ear training into lessons along with technique and interpretation. Depending on the student's best way of learning (visual, tactile, aural, etc.) I work with them on creative ways of securing memory and developing a sense of confidence in their art. A strong connection to the piece is essential, so I encourage students to pick repertoire that they are passionate about. I also plan biannual recitals for my students and encourage them to perform if they would like!
Teaching Styles: I am always encouraging and have something positive to say. Music is never about just playing all the right notes--mistakes happen in life! The artistry is I how we recover and what we make our audiences to feel. Confidence is the number one thing I want my students to have, and just below is a great love for what they're doing. Students are encouraged to practice as much as they are able, but there's always something to work on, so students with busy lives don't have to worry about strictness or disappointment with me. I care that you are enjoying your work and learning valuable things-- the drive to practice should come from your own desire to learn so that you can play even better music, not from fear of your teacher.
