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
I have been teaching in the private setting since the mid-90s, which I began as an undergrad in Music Education. I taught for about a decade in public schools in Kansas, teaching both band and vocal music to students of all ages at various times. I chose to return to school in 2009 and completed two Masters degrees in performance in classical and jazz trumpet over the next four years. Currently, I teach trumpet and jazz improvisation at Southern Nazarene University, Southwestern Christian University, and Rose State College. I also teach jazz band at SNU. As I mentioned above, I focus a great deal on fundamentals, which, once mastered, helps the student master new materials more easily.
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
I use a Practice based incentive program to develop healthy musical habits. I listen to the goals each student wants to achieve and set up steps to accomplish the goal. While in a lesson I establish basic musicianship, while developing and shaping a performers self image. Warm encouragement and helpful criticism are used to create a safe testing ground to forge and hone new skills.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Trumpet, Trombone, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Recorder, Euphonium, French Horn
Teaching Methods: 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.
Teaching Styles: As long as a student truly wants to learn and excel on their instrument, I believe I can help him or her achieve that goal. Their goal becomes my goal and it gives me great satisfaction to help them gain the musical and instrumental skills they need to reach their goal, whatever that may be. I consider myself a patient and nurturing teacher who will try various teaching pedagogies to help a student learn the skills necessary to be successful in their instrumental music education.
Instruments: Trumpet, Trombone, Euphonium, French Horn, Tuba
My teaching experience began in 2006. During my college years I taught trombone to fellow students and later as a college instructor and high school band director, taught young adults. My experience as an elementary school teacher has rewarded me with skills to work with younger children. I now work with seasoned musicians as a mentor and coach. I have fun too. I have performed with Kristin Chenoweth, The Electric Light Orchestra, Nancy Wilson, and Ray Charles. I have the same fun at every lesson.
Instruments: Piano, Trumpet, Drums, Bass Guitar, Synthesizer, Conga, Latin Percussion, Keyboard, Electric Guitar, Acoustic Guitar
It is a privilege to be able to be a part of the development of a musical goal no matter the age or skill level. I take it upon myself to make sure that each student achieves his or her musical goals. I start all my beginners with getting to learn their instrument, the fundamentals of music like scales and progressions and some fun simple songs or melodies. Higher skill levels will include developing the ear for pitch and rhythm, performing in real time and improvisation. I will also incorporate a live band rehearsal which will make students think on their feet. Through out the entire learning process I will keep the students' motivation fresh so they may have purpose. Whether a student want to play at home on the holidays, be in a garage band, play at gigs or be part of a music ministry, I will help them achieve their goals

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
