I feel each of my students are unique. I love watching my students' level of musical understanding progress. I love seeing the dedication and determination begin to heighten as the lessons progress. Within each lesson I point out areas that need to be worked on as well as areas of improvement. Seeing one's progress is the most important element to me for my students. Therefore, I like to record my students quarterly for a few minutes within a lesson to show the mass amounts of improvement they will accomplish. It will be my pleasure to work with you. *SPECIAL SHOUT OUT TO MISS ALLIE ON PIANO! Allie has shown an exceeding amount of progress with each lesson. I am proud to call her my student. She is always prepared, and eager to show me her progress for the week. I am delightfully pleased to see how well she has applied our preceding lesson to her week's practice. Allie is quick to fix a mistake. She takes direction well and is not afraid to take a risk within the realm of musicality. "I'm super proud of you, Allie. Your scales are coming along so well. Your dedication is admirable, and I feel you have what it takes to continuously take your practice to the next level. Keep it up miss metronome!" ;)
My teaching experience started in 2010 during my college freshman year when I was employed by the Music Institute of North Texas and the Carrolton Independent School District as a private violin instructor. On top of violin pedagogy, I was also employed by the University of North Texas Learning Center as a Supplemental Instructor for Music Theory. When teaching, I try to incorporate basic music theory into performance, as I feel both are important to gain a greater understanding and appreciation for muisc. For all my students, I encourage keeping a daily pracitce log recording time practiced and musical goals so they can see progress and be motivated to contiue learning. One important point I stress is to always relax and have fun when performing, whether it be in a concert, competition, or recital. I make sure that each student truly enjoys music and is proud of his/her accomplishments.
My teaching experience is rooted in the public school systems where I beleive great music programs are so badly needed. I worked for Beyond the Bell, the afteschool branch of the Los Angeles School District coordinating music programs and events for our studnets, grades 3 - 12. This includes honor groups, workshops, clinics, festivals, competitons and ongoning begining music programs, all in various genres and throughout the district. I personally taught two afteschool programs, each with over 25 students each. Classes includes beginning and intermediate groups on wind, string, and percussion instruments.

As you start viola lessons, there are a couple different options you can choose as a way to obtain an instrument. Some students may choose to buy, which would be most useful for advanced or adult players. However, most beginning students will choose to rent. Renting can be done on a monthly basis and will provide you with everything you need for your lessons, instrument-wise. It is best for children to rent, as they will need to start with a smaller instrument, and work up in size as they grow.
All of the teachers in our network are highly qualified and able to teach what the student will need in order to be successful with their instrument. While no set teaching method is used by all of the teachers in our network, if you are interested in a particular style, such as Suzuki, we would be happy to match to a teacher who specializes in that. All teachers will teach a combination of music theory, proper technique, and musicianship.
Children can start viola as early as age 4. Though there is a standard size for violas, they are also available in smaller sizes which are suitable for small children. As the students grow, they can move up in size, and the instrument can grow with them. Being one of the smaller members of the string family, the viola lends itself well to small hands. Any teacher, or music store professional can help you choose the correct size. On the viola, children will start off learning how to handle the instrument correctly, read music, and develop their overall skills as a musician.
All skill levels are welcomed for Musika lessons. We do our best to provide an instructor who will help an adult student be successful with their instrument. By providing in home lesson options for busy schedules, and customized lesson plans, adult students of all ages are able to find success within their lessons.
When you choose in home lessons, you are choosing a convenient way to add music to your life. By having the instructor come to your home you are saving time, money, and energy! Not only is this a convenient option for those with busy schedules, but allows for you to learn your instrument in the familiar, and comfortable space of your own home. Learning in an environment where you are at ease is beneficial for both children and adults.

Our daughter has only been playing the piano since March. Tony replaced our other teacher who had a job transfer and could no longer teach. Tony is fun and encouraging. My daughter is playing Taylor Swift and Christmas songs and is playing the piano more than ever before. Very happy so far with Mr Tony

This is the 1st time I've ever taken lessons, and Robert has been a pleasure to work with. I've made quick progress and have enjoyed the process. I'm always listening for those tips that you can't find in a book. I can count on Robert to be strict on the fundamentals and am clear it will make a difference in the long run.

There are only a handful of people I count in my life who were great teachers, and Laura is one of them. Her musicianship is so secure as are her technique and personality that she zeros in on my weaknesses and devises exercises to strengthen them, and during the lesson it is not "Do this, no, do that" which is unnerving to a novice. She understands the most important part of study is relaxation, so that is easy to achieve with such a confident and compassionate human. Music is her life and she is eager to share her talent with everyone. A rare find, indeed!

Amber is personal and cares about her students. She is flexible in her schedule and maintains a professional attitude in her lessons. Her want for her students to succeed makes her excel as a teacher. She is very knowledgeable about music and extremely experienced. Additionally, she includes external activities aside from lessons for the students who wish to advance themselves externally. Really a great teacher who offers great opportunity.

After signing up for lessons with David L. I knew I made the right choice. Just after a couple of weeks I didn't see him as a teacher but as a best friend. There was always a relaxed atmosphere during the lessons. He was very easy to talk to and he really listen to you. If I ever had a question he would answer. He tailors to what ever you want to do in that lesson. David L. is a great teacher and a friend. I totally recommend him for anyone

I've been taking lessons from Michael once a week for eight weeks now, and with his help I have made dramatic improvements with my sax. Michael is a funny, nice, patient and all around great instructor. I'd recommend Michael, as an instructor, to anyone who wants to improve their skills and have fun while doing it.

Vince is a great drum teacher for my 8 year old son. We go to his house where he has a studio setup with a huge drum set. He has been very patient but really holds my son responsible for learning the right way to play. After about 5 lessons, my son is playing some rhythms on the drums and reading music. He looks forward to his lessons with Vince.

After my first piano lesson, Polina is easily the best teacher I could have hoped for. Extremely charismatic and excited to help YOU learn the piano. She puts a lot of effort into evaluation your learning style and will no doubt help you make tremendous strides! I'm stoked to continue taking lessons!
Review by Bradford Putt
Angela has been a perfect match-up for me. She is warm and welcoming, and also serious about teaching - she keeps our time focused and on track. What I truly appreciate, as a new singer anxiously preparing for an event, is the confidence she gives me. Angela is very encouraging. I enjoy coming to class.
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
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
