My first conversation with students is what they would like to learn. This doesn’t have to be specifically about one instrument, but what they would like to become as a musician. What music do the students enjoy? What inspires them? Who are their musical influences? I have taught students to have developmental issues. I have taught gifted students. The biggest teaching method I have is to be flexible because no two students learn alike. I have several different types of workbooks to use whether it’s a piano workbook or a drum workbook. I enjoy reading music literature. I enjoy teaching classical music, children’s music, pop and Funk, rock ‘n’ roll, and classic rock.
I have been teaching music for nearly 20 years. I am the after school music teacher for the Norwood School District. My primary goal is to make sure students are having fun and enjoying themselves during lessons. I have a laid-back disposition. During the first lesson I’ll ask students what they would like to learn about. Then my goal is to facilitate how to reach that goal. I’d like to have lessons be relaxed and students can work at their own pace. Not everyone is able to practice every week, so that is not always expected. But I do expect students to continue to improve on their instrument.
I like to find songs that students really care about, because then they will be more interested in learning them. My teaching style is very flexible in that all students are different, and learn in different ways. I’ve taught really young kids and I’ve also taught seniors. I find it fun meeting new challenges and seeing what new musical abilities I am capable of. I teach music theory, piano, drums, guitar, bass, and voice. Some students will alternate between different instruments one week they might like to learn piano and then the following week they may like to learn guitar. This can also be in addition to a music theory lesson and a voice lesson depending on what the goals of the student is.
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.
