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, Clarinet
Teaching Methods: Piano - I find that no one method book is completely standalone, so i incorporate several method books...Piano Adventures, John Thompson's course, Piano Pronto, and some self-composed music for my youngest students! Intermediate-level pianists start choosing some of their own repertoire as well.
Clarinet - For students who do well with method books, I use the Rubank Elementary & Intermediate books, and A New Tune A Day books by Ned Bennett. For students who learn in a less structured way, I love to arrange famous classical melodies as clarinet duets and solos. Intermediate and advanced students generally progress through the standard classical repertoire, unless their interest lies in popular or jazz music instead.
Teaching Styles: I do expect my students to practice and progress, but if 6 hours of practice doesn't happen everyday...that's life! I always teach my lessons in an encouraging way, and find that humor is the best medicine when we all (inevitably) make mistakes. I am happy teaching both competitive students and students who play purely for enjoyment.
Instruments: Piano, Voice
Teaching Methods: Lessons begin with warm ups to strengthen muscles, dexterity, and pitch accurancy. Following that, we sing a selction of songs, some the student suggests, and others I suggest to try and improve certain aspects of their development. We work on everything from musical theater to classical to country to R&B, whichever genre they are the most interested in!
Teaching Styles: I like my students to feel very comfortable with me and I like to create a long term relationship with them, but I also like to prepare them very thoroughly for whatever auditions or performances they have in the future.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Violin, Fiddle, Electric Guitar, Acoustic Guitar
Teaching Methods: I strive to strike a careful balance between classical technique and pop performance. I want my students to have fun and fuel the desire to become better musicians. I use the Suzuki Method (to a certain point) in conjunction with my own method for learning music theory and ear training. I always ask my students what they're listening to and what they would like to play - I'm open to virtually any genre. I also sprinkle in some traditional songs that I feel the students would benefit from learning.
Teaching Styles: I am laid-back and down to earth. My expectations for each student are realistic and I raise the bar when the student is ready. I create a comfortable environment for my students so that they can focus on their instrument and not worry about any negative consequences for making a mistake. I emphasize the importance of playing every day, even if it's just for a few minutes, and make it part of the student's daily routine. The main goal is for the student to have fun and to deepen their love of music.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice
I enjoy teaching different age groups. I teach and learn a lot from my students on a daily basis. I began to teach in 2010. It's been very rewarding. I like to inspire my students to practice daily. I like to motivate my students to keep important habits from the very beginning, like: study and practicing daily, maintaining a good posture when playing their instrument, understanding and interpreting their musical piece with intention.
Instruments: Piano, Drums, Mallet Percussion, Orchestral Percussion, Conga, Latin Percussion
It really depends on needs and desires of student! I create custom lesson plans for each student depending on their current ability level, age, and future goals. For drums -topics include: various Snare books to teach students sight reading basics while focusing on technique, transcriptions of drum grooves and solos, learning and playing along to recordings, etc. For Piano, I combine a traditional note reading approach/music theory with the "by ear" Suzuki Method.

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
