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: Trumpet, Trombone, Euphonium
Students of all ages will work out of a technique/method book. Younger students will use Walter Beeler's Method for Cornet/Trumpet, more advanced students will play from Arban's. I emphasize a "classical" approach, especially with younger students to solidify their skills, encouraging intersted students to begin including jazz improvisation into their studies as their skills advance. We work on tone production, helping the student improve in this area through attention to breathing, embouchure, articulation, long tones, lip flexibilities, scales, etc. I like to have students of all ages working on appropriate solo literature as early as is sensible, and try to encourage all students to perform at any opportunity that is suitable. I also encourage students to broaden their experience by participation in honor bands such as CODA, District and State Bands, and band camps, etc.
Instruments: Trumpet, Trombone, Euphonium, French Horn, Tuba
For beginning younger students I begin by working a very short time with parents to assure them their children are in a positive learning environment. Parents of small children are encouraged to attend each lesson with their child. The core principles of musicality, breathing, and perspective are taught. The next step is sound and movement. When these skills are mastered I help students get comfortable with their instruments and then begin playing. Older children just beginning to enter the world of music will begin with the fundamentals of musicianship, sound, and breathing. From there I will progress to rhythm, pitch, and notation. When these skills are mastered I will get the students comfortable with their instruments and begin playing. Students that have a background in music with their instruments will be assessed to determine the level of teaching required. After their skills have been assessed each student will have a plan of action with specific goals to met their target competency. During alls lessons for all age groups I emphasize practice requirements and time management.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Trumpet, Trombone, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Recorder, Euphonium, French Horn
For beginning students whose primary goal is membership in a school performance ensemble, I will usually choose a beginning band method that give them a good foundation in fundamental playing techniques. As they gain basic skills at this level, I expand the content of lessons to include easy solo repertoire. For older and adult beginning students, I usually use instrumental methods more suited for older learners. In addition, I incorporate easy solo literature for public performance.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice, Violin, Cello, Viola, Trumpet, Trombone, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Drums, Bass Guitar, Recorder, Euphonium, French Horn, Tuba, Mallet Percussion, Bassoon, Keyboard, Acoustic Guitar

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
