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
Teaching Methods: I use method books a lot, since most of my piano students are beginners. I can teach classical, jazz, pop, and gospel to vocalists and pianists alike. I also work with the students and families to learn what they want to learn. I make learning music fun.
Teaching Styles: I am a laid back kind of person who is quite patient. I taylor lessons to what the children like, with the exception of beginners who need to learn the basics at first.
Instruments: Piano, Trumpet, Trombone, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Drums, Mallet Percussion, Conga, Latin Percussion
Teaching Methods: My methods are very indiviualized and definitely outside the box. I frequently write material directly for the student (rather than use method books) It has been demonstrated to be very effective.
Teaching Styles: There are three acceptable answers to me: 1) The correct answer. 2) I don't know. 3) I don't remember. We keep going until 1 is the response.
Instruments: Piano, Trumpet, Trombone, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Drums, Euphonium, French Horn, Tuba, Mallet Percussion
Teaching Methods: I have the most Experience using the following Method Books: Standard of Excellence, Essential Elements, Accent on Achievement, Instrumental Methods
Teaching Styles: In my classroom transdisciplinary is innate to my teach style. I teach all skills in my class using many methods including but, not limited to the following: Clapping, singing, stomping, writing, modeling, syllables (math), one-on-one Beginning players usually start with a short Assessment of their knowledge of music. We will spend a lot of time thorughout their experience on Tone, Intonation, Technique, Range, and Style using various styles. Experienced players usually start with a short Assessment of their knowledge of music. A high focus of our Studio time will be spent developing Music/Solos etc. they are already preparing for Honors groups, High School and College. We will spend a lot of time thorughout their experience on Tone, Intonation, Technique, Range, and Style using various styles.
Instruments: Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Recorder, Tuba, Piccolo, Oboe, Bassoon
Teaching Methods: For beginners through intermediate students I normally use the Rubank Method, Standard of Excellence, Essential Elements, Trevor Wye Tone, and Boehm Method books to start students out on to ensure their success in band class and their affordability for home practice. The method books I listed before really give students a good sense of technique, theory, history, and phrasing as a early musician, and with my guidence my students can really work and learn fast. Once the student has progressed and have grasped the fundamentals of playing their instrument I normally start students out with solo repertoire and etudes for recitals or auditions for commnity ensembles. For advanced students I normally will have them learn complete pieces of music from the standard repertoire of music and I normally move them on to more advanced method books at a quicker pace then what they start out with. I believe in having students perform in community ensembles to better themselves as musicians and to have motivational compitition with thier peers, so I will always be teaching students adutition repertoire and professional qualities of a musician.
Teaching Styles: I believe in developing a sense of passion for music and drive to always want to learn in students, because as a parent and teacher we want students to succeed and make something of themselves when they get out in the real world. Through hard work and disciplne I belive students can learn to be driven to succeed, and I think that music is a stepping stone in teaching self motivation and continuous learning. I accomplish all the items stated before by setting realistic goals for the students and helping them really manage what they want truuly need from me to accomplish their goals and the goals I have set for them. By having a high standard of excellence in playing music my students can expect to truly be pushed to succeed and have a sense of striving to succeed.
Instruments: Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet
Teaching Methods: For beginning students I teach out of the Rubank Elementary Method books. These books are most comprehensive for beginning students. As the student progresses I begin introducing them to solo repertoire, scales studies, and jazz improvisation. My approach is much different with adult students. I ask them what are their musical goals and from there I can create a curriculum based on adult student’s needs and wants. My teaching method works for all students, no matter the age or musical level.
Teaching Styles: Music is a very tough discipline. It will not happen in one lesson, but what will happen is that students will instantly witness progress and this feeling becomes addictive. I challenge my students to practice hard because with that type of discipline the student will not only grow musically, but mentally as a human. I would not be the compassionate person I am today if it had not been for me falling in love with music.
