Professional Certificate Musicians Institute 2007
Hello my name is Ben and ive been teaching music for over ten years now. I graduated from Musicians Institute in Hollywood Ca in 2008. I am in 2 bands now and music is my life and passion. I enjoy what I do and received best of Teacher's award in 2015. I have traveled to Europe three times in the last 5 years touring with a band and it was a great musical experience. Have taught hundreds of students and have many many hours of live on stage experience playing music Please consider me for your teacher! Thanks! :)
I've been teaching music for more than 12 years now. I can honestly say that I enjoy teaching and sharing my knowledge of music. Not everyone can say that they truly enjoy their job so I feel blessed. I have taught hundreds of students ranging from ages 4 to 80! I have taught individuals, groups or online lessons. During the pandemic I was lucky to I keep working because of zoom lessons. I don't know what I would have done without zoom lessons. I had at 30 students a week on zoom lessons! I teach guitar, piano or drum lessons. I can also teach voice and have over 20 students at the current time but need more!! Please consider me as your music teacher!
I usually see what level the student is on and we go from there. The age and interest of the students will also tell me which way to go in the lesson. Usually with beginner students the Hal Leonard book is a good place to start but I'm willing to start with any beginning book. If the students are just interested in one specific thing then we focus on that. But If I think they need more instruction on the basics I'll add that info as we go. I try to make the lesson as fun as possible and for the student to learn as much as possible.
My teaching style is just like most I think. I don't rush with the students. Always trying to go slow and make sure the students understands everything. I've gotten pretty good at figuring out when the students get what I'm trying to teach. If I feel like I'm going to fast I'll stop think about what I'm doing and slow down. It's easy to talk to fast and rush as a teacher because I've taught so many students. I'll ask questions to see if the students understands if not then I'll try and explain again. Lessons are supposed to be fun and you supposed to learn.
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
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
