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, 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.

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: Piano, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet
Teaching Methods: For beginning students, I typically start with Essential Elements or standard of excellence. Once a student has progresses to have a gasp of fundementals, I begin t introduce solo repertoire and, if interested, the student begins studies in jazz. I also try to find out what the student is interested in learning and guide the instruction accordingly. I also have the ability to customize lesson plans and materials.
Teaching Styles: I love to see my students develop a passion for music. I realize that each student learns at a different rate. I set realistic goals for each student in each lesson. By trying to find out what inspies eah student, I can tailor the instruction t their wants and needs.
Instruments: Piano, Saxophone, Clarinet
Teaching Methods: For my younger, early elementary piano students, I use the Bastien Piano Basics. For my older school-aged students, I typically use the Faber Piano Adventures series, usually starting off with the acclerated book for the older students. For adults and some of my high school students, I use the Alfred Adult series. All age levels will be taught music theory in conjunction with the regular music lesson, which gives them a deeper understanding of the music that they are learning! My band students will be taught based on what method book their director is using, whether it be Essential Elements, Standard of Excellence, etc. Their lessons may be expanded upon by providing duets or solos for them to play. I also encourage the older students to learn their scales and possibly audition for All-Sate Band if so desired. All of my band students that have been playing for a least a year are encouraged to participate in an annual spring music recital.
Teaching Styles: I really enjoy seeing a student grow in their understanding and knowledge of music! Music can become a life-long passion for many and also provides benefits of the students learning self-discipline, confidence, and pride in learning something new! I am patient and encouraging with all ages and provide opportunites for all to grow!
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.
