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, Trumpet, Trombone, Euphonium, French Horn, Tuba
Teaching Methods: I suit my lessons to the individual needs and goals of the student. For beginners, I typically begin out of a method book, but I also use studies and etudes that I have developed on my own in the course of my teaching career. Throughout the learning process, I engage the student with real music to build listening skills, and teach concepts like tone, phrasing, and expression. I also teach all of my students music theory and listening analysis because I believe this is a neccessary component of a strong musical foundation.
Teaching Styles: Learning to perform and understand music is a difficult journey, but one which also reaps great rewards. Performing great music with a skilled ensemble for an appreciative audience is, in my opinion, one of the great joys of life. Unfortunately, beginners are easily frustrated by their lack of facility on their instrument. I believe the teacher must guide the student toward positive practice habits including daily listening and performing, give the student unwavering support and encouragement, provide a judgment-free learning environment while also providing constructive feedback, and most importantly, be a musical role model.
