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: Saxophone, Clarinet
I've been teaching privately for 4 years and have been working with music stores and schools in their band programs/music classes for two years. I've worked with Brian Wilson at Summit Academy, Jeff Atchinson at Red Mountain High, Jeff Quamo with some students and ensembles and with Mary Price in her general music classroom at Summit Academy. I'm currently in multiple ensembles as well as getting back into choral music which is where I get my experience in musical phrasing and emotion. That's something that I always incorporate into music and teaching that idea and concept.
Instruments: Piano, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet
Beginning students for woodwinds (flute, clarinet, saxophone) usually start with the Essential Elements book. As they advance the next books are usually Breeze Easy book 2 followed by the Rubank Intermediate and Advanced Methods. Advanced students will break into instrument specific methods. Flute with use methods such as The Melodious Studies and Pares scales books, clarinets with use the Klose books and Saxophone students will use Ferling and Klose studies. Students wishing to study jazz methods will use either the Jim Snidero or Walt Weiskopf methods. For piano students, I usually begin with the Alfred studies and select a book based on the students skill level or age. In addition, I will often provide sight reading studies as supplemental materials during lessons.
Instruments: Piano, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet
Teaching Methods: With my private woodwind students, I use the Essential Elements 2000 method which includes a cd and dvd with each book. With adults, I use Rubank or more appropriate methods that goes with their ability level. With piano students, I use the Alfred method, or Fletcher, depending on the student. I have used John Thompson as well as the Bastien method of teaching. I experiment with the latest methods to keep students interest and engage them to learn at their own pace without frustration.
Teaching Styles: I want to see my students grow musically and develp a yearning for growth. My job is to have each student succeed and to have them be inspired by their own growth. I encourage each student to try to reach a goal and and I want them to progress at their own pace for enjoyment and fun. Music is a life long experience.
Instruments: Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet
Teaching Methods: I take a personal approach to the students aspirations. The starting point for all students is, "What music do you enjoy?" This gives me a sense of what they are listening to and maybe even what they would like to sound like. I then sculp a curriculum based on the ability of the student and his/her wants and needs.
Teaching Styles: In a curriculum for any student I find certain skills to be necessary. Technique, phrasing, dynamics, and the like. I think these are valuable in any students abilities.
Instruments: Violin, Cello, Viola, Saxophone, Clarinet
I have been teaching private violin lessons since I was in high school-about 7 years ago. I have always had an influx of violin students and was employed by the University of Idaho to teach private violin lessons for their Preparatory Division. My primary instrument is violin, but I also play viola, cello, saxophone and clarinet fluently. My lessons focus around creating characteristic sound and correct technique, as well as short lessons on music history and theory to keep the students' music education well rounded. My previous students range from age 3 to age 50, so I have experience in all age groups. I find all aspects of music absolutely fascinating and love sharing my enthusiasm and knowledge with my students.

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
