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:
My teaching style involves a lot of listening, both on my part and on the student's. I like to listen to a student play, give them feedback, then listen again in an effort to get the student to listen as well. Read More
Instruments: Piano, Saxophone, Clarinet, Synthesizer, Music
I like to have students move at their own pace. I would work with each student and learn their strengths and weaknesses in regards to playing their instrument, and use that knowledge to help guide them along during the lessons and in what work or etudes I give them to practice in between each lesson. For example, if a beginner student is struggling with the fundamentals of music or their instrument, I might spend more time on that to make them more comfortable with the fundamentals. Read More
Instruments: Piano, Saxophone, Music, Keyboard
For absolute beginner students of any age, we begin outside of a book as the best way to learn is from personal experience. With wind players for example, we work on breathing, posture, and hand position as these three components help students produce a quality sound in as comfortable of a way as possible. Moving into more formal studies, I used the Standard of Excellence series for young children and the Rubank series for more intermediate students. Read More
Instruments: Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Recorder, Piccolo
Depending on the age and level of the student I pick a book appropriate for them. For beginners I first work with getting a consistent smooth sound and move on to learning the notes and simple songs. Scales are key to learn as so much in music is based on the scales. I introduce works that can be played for a recital while always considering the level of the student. Read More
Instruments: Trumpet, Trombone, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Euphonium, Tuba
I am a very dedicated and caring music teacher with 23 years of experience. I have taught students of all ages from early elementary school to senior citizens. All of my NYSSMA participating students have received scores of excellent or outstanding in Grades 1-4, and in the 90's on Levels 5 and 6. My main instruments are tuba and trombone, both of which I teach at all levels. However, I also teach trumpet, clarinet, flute, and saxophone up to late intermediate levels. Read More
