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, Flute, Clarinet
For piano students, I like to use the Alfred courses. This method is great because they have courses of study for all ages and levels, and students can progress through several courses throughout their study. For flute/clarinet students, I like to start with either Hal Leonard's Essential Elements or the Rubank methods books. Once students have moved beyond the basics, I like to introduce solo repertoire that is appropriate for their level. I will also pair the solo material with technique exercises designed to solidify their fingerings, scales, rhythm reading, etc, that will enhance their ability to play their solo pieces.
Instruments: Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet
My goal in teaching is to help the student develop confidence by developing skill as a musician. Once the student realizes how to gain confidence through practice, he or she will create a healthy habit of successful learning that can transfer to any field of education.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Saxophone, Flute, Recorder, Piccolo
Teaching Methods: For young beginning instrumental students, I use the Do It! and Hal Leonard Essential Elements method books. I like to supplement these with music they have likely heard from movies and the radio, as well as classical repertoire appropriate for the ability level. When the students graduate from beginner-level method books, we move on to solo pieces and more in-depth technical exercises and etudes. Building a responsive musician is a priority, so I play with the student using duets. Adult students help to steer the musical study as they voice their musical interests and goals. I believe that the skills used to practice and perform music are transferrable to other fields of study. Music helps to develop the person as a whole. I also believe that all students should be able to navigate independent learning experiences, and music is a great medium for students to develop the skills they need to be lifelong learners. Therefor, students of appropriate age will be given independent projects such as building a portfolio and small research projects on a relevant topics that are selected by the student. Projects will be differentiated according to student ability, learning style, and interest.
Teaching Styles: Lessons will include tone work, scales, technical exercises, etudes, and solo repertoire that are appropriate for the student's stage of development and area of interest. All instrumental students will also study body alignment, instrument position, and posture, and in addition to this, woodwind students will study the awareness of the breath and breathing techniques. I believe that the purpose of lessons is to help the student learn how to teach themselves, so I work with the students on developing concrete practicing strategies and the ability to self-reflect.
Instruments: Piano, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet
My teaching experience dates back to my college days, as I began teacher private lessons part time 8 years ago on flute, clairnet and piano. I moved to Phoenix 6 years ago and have been teaching private lesson in students home and my own on flute, piano and guitar. I am also a full time music/band teacher in an Elementary/Middle School teaching general music and band for grades 5-8.
Instruments: Violin, Cello, Viola, Saxophone, Clarinet
My teaching style varies from student to student because all students learn differently. What does not change from student to student is the exitement and enthusiasm I bring to every lesson. I genuinely love to teach and if my students are not loving to learn, I need to change my approach. I also believe in strong communication, so students and parents are always aware of my expectations. Above all else, students should be learning in their lessons, cultivating a love and appreciation for music, and enjoying their lessons. Music lessons should always be a positive experience!

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
