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: Piano, Guitar, Voice, Trombone, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Oboe
Teaching Methods: My main music philosophy is to teach sound before sight: teach students to hear the music, and then read the notation. For beginners, I want them to become well acquainted with their instrument so I begin with the basic fundamentals, and then teach some traditional tunes before moving on to reading music. For students who can already read music, I like to work on sight-reading as well as finding solo repertoire that can be performed at recitals. Since I find every student learns differently, I like to create my own lesson plans that are tailored to the individual student because this helps them reach their full potential. That being said, I am not against method books as they provide valuable technique exercises that strengthen a student's playing.
Teaching Styles: As a teacher, there is nothing more rewarding than seeing a student develop a passion for music. If my students do not leave every lesson feeling inspired, encouraged, and wanting to practice and play music, then I am not doing my job. Just as I tailor each lesson to match the individual student, expect the student to grow and develop as a musician at his/her own pace. Ultimately, music is universally accessible and I want to foster a love and appreciation for listening to music as well as performing music.
Instruments: Piano, Trombone, Euphonium, Tuba
I first began my teaching career in 2015 and have since had a rapidly-growing base of students. I have taught students in elementary school, middle school, high school, and even college graduates. I believe in a holistic approach to teaching--what good is knowing how to play your instrument if you don't understand the essence of music? For these reasons, I always emphasize the underlying principles in both the playing technique and the construction of the music. I like to allow students to choose music they enjoy playing, while retaining a healthy amount of repertoire aimed at honing skills.
Instruments: Piano, Trumpet, Trombone, Saxophone, Clarinet
Age-friendly materials are my favorite to use. For very young pianists I often buy books with lots of color and large print like Kjos's Piano Party. Kjos and Alfred are two of my favorite publishers, but I am willing to work with materials your family may already own. Flashcards are an important tool for many children to become fluent at naming/reading notes. I also like to have students complete written theory assignments, and, to help students from getting bored, I often "reward" them with single pieces of fun sheet music that can be performed for recitals and competitions. But remember... while several things can help a student become great like an excellent teacher and high-quality books, practice always wins... by a landslide. So my expectation and instruction include teaching mindfully engaged practice.
Instruments: Trumpet, Trombone, Saxophone, Clarinet
My teaching style revolves around getting to know my student and his or her abilities/playing style. No two students learn exactly the same way, and giving one on one instruction is where we can work together to develop and progress in a customized way. I approach any kind of teaching as team work. We work together by me giving guidance and the student practicing so both of us reach our desired goals. Nothing is more rewarding that seeing a student succeed and develop a passion for what he or she is doing.

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
