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: My methods are flexible, depending on the needs of every student. I do not attempt a "one-size-fits-all" methodology, as every child has their own unique challenges. I try to teach in a manner that addresses both the intersts of the student and the knowledge deemed necessary by myself, the teacher. My lessons will start with the fundamentals of the instrument, such as basic sound concepts and technique improvments, and gradually scaffold into more specialized and challenging demands.
Teaching Styles: As a teacher, I work to provide an encouraging learning environment where both student and teacher demonstrate utmost commitment to each other and the instrument. Lessons are upbeat and energetic, with a sense of humor. It is my goal for students to develop not only a sense of resonsibilty and respect towards the teacher, but also a genuine enthusiastic love for the instrument. Every student has different tendencies, so I will do my best to draw from those tendencies to provide the best possible learning experience.
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
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.
Instruments: Piano, Voice, Saxophone, Organ, Synthesizer, Recorder, Oboe, English Horn
Teaching Methods: My favorite methods for piano include the Bastian. While I enjoy using this series, I will work with any music that the student already has and encourage students to find music that interests them. I introduce solos of varied styles for students of all levels, and when appropriate create studies and exercises to fit individual specific needs. My methods vary with each student to ensure and individualized lesson experience.
Teaching Styles: My favorite part of teaching is seeing the light of understanding turn on within the head and heart of a student. I keep lessons fun while providing specific guidelines and goals for each lesson. Fundamentals are important, but I spend time on fun music of the students choice as well. It is important that students see their progress and can understand how far they have actually come in learning their instrument. I inspire students by showing them my love of music and tailor my teaching style to help provide a fun and effective learning environment.
Instruments: Guitar, Saxophone
Teaching Methods: I make lesson plans based on the needs of what the student likes stylistically and where their week points are. I teach Chord shapes and try to get in ear training and music theory as much as possible. The books I use for teaching are; The Christopher Parkening guitar method, Vol 1 and 2 The real book Solo jazz guitar Foundations of Rock: Evolution of Rock Guitar Terrifying Technique for Guitar Melodic Rythms for Guitar and A Modern Method for Guitar Volume 1
Teaching Styles: I have always loved teaching those around me how to improve in music. I believes that even though there are times to be strict with learning and practicing, that music should always be fun and engaging. I help my students learn by picking material that they enjoy playing but at the same time have techniques that they need to know.

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
