The method varies according to each student. Everyone has a diffent goal in their musical journey; My main goal is to provide a well rounded and dynamic instruction, where the student will have a solid understanding of the basic pilars of music: ear training, technique and reading skills; this will redund in quality performance. my students will learn to play both, by ear and by reading.

I have spent many years in musician development as part of my experience serving as Music Director for different venues. I have also been teaching privately for several years as well. I like to make learning fun and I have found that each student is different, so I tailor individual learning tracks for every person I teach. I encourage creativity, so I work well with song writers and those interested in arranging/producing. I make sure to include music theory as well, so each student is well rounded as a musician.
There is nothing is more gratifying to me than seeing my students cultivate a passion for music. It is imperative that each student advance at their own rate. I will help each student set realistic goals for themselves. Acknowledging their accomplishments and encouraging their individual musical interests helps further fuel the students desire to succeed.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice
Teaching Methods: I like to start each of my students with a lesson on music theory and a few vocal warm ups to reach a desired sound. It is very important as a vocalist to understand these fundamentals before you begin repertoire. Once you have grasped these very important concepts, I like to assign both a classical piece and a piece in the genre of the students choosing. This keeps the lessons engaging, but also practical.
Teaching Styles: I like to set goals for my students based on their abilities and their work ethic. It is important to have goals that are attainable, but also keep the student progressing. I love to recognize the students for the progress they've made, while at the same time keep them wanting more! Motivation goes a long way, it's not about the amount of time you spend practicing, but instead the quality of the effort you put in to each practice session.
Instruments: Piano, Voice
Teaching Methods: Because I have had voice training and have taught using many different methods, my students find much more quickly what works for them and their goals. They also have enjoyed the freedom of being able to tell me the sound they are wanting to make and receiving instruction how to make that sound, rather than being told they can only sing in a certain genre (usually classical) with a certain kind of sound (also usually classical).
Teaching Styles: My lesson style varies depending on the student's learning style, personality, preferences, etc. I usually get a sense of the learning style of a given student within 3 or 4 lessons, and if I don't I have a special test to find out. Students learn best when the teaching favors their learning style and preferred pace. Some students like to take things slow, be methodical, and are very visual. Others may want to apply concepts at a faster pace, respond more to auditory examples, and like to jump around between topics. There are lots of different combinations but what's important is that the teacher can recognize these things, and this is a skill I have developed well but I'm always learning and always surprised :)

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
