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, Drums, Euphonium, French Horn, Tuba, Piccolo, Mallet Percussion
Teaching Methods: I've learn that the most important part of educating my students is to teach to their learning style and ability while giving them some strong encouragement and guidance. I first start with an assements of where the students skills are and their mindset. I try to findout what they want to due and what they like to due. Sometimes students dont truly know. This is important for me because it sets the foundation for how the lessons will be planned out week to week. My style of teaching has improved my students grades in other academic class while improving there musical skills. They learn good study skills and habits under me that are used in other classes.
Teaching Styles: I am a nurturer. I teach with caring, passion and support of all my students. It's not just enough show students how to play a note or read a rhythm, but how to use that knowledge in everyday life. I like to build a positive working relationship with my students. This way they look forward to their lesson, not only because they are comfortable around me, but because they are growing and learning about music and it's relationship to life.
Instruments: Piano, Saxophone, Drums
Teaching Methods: For beginning stdents who are children I like to start with Hal Leonard's Essential Elements. Most schools use this book and I feel its a great beginning method. I start them working on tone and ear training. For intermediate and advanced students(late teens and adults) we'll take a look at what your interests are, work on solo rep. and technique.
Teaching Styles: My teaching style is like water. I like things to flow, smoothly with the natural tendecies of the student. We'll have realistic goals that we'll aim for each week. We'll do alot of duets and discuss the music and the sax. Each student is different so for each and every one I have a tailored approach for.
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: 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.

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
