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: Violin, Cello, Viola
Teaching Methods: I don't have a standard lesson plan that I use for every student, as no two are the same, but for my younger students I tend to use Essential Elements and String Explorer to help with the basics, and from there introduce solo repertoire that aligns with their interests and abilities. For my adult students I work with them to create a plan that aligns with their interests and abilities. I believe that all students should have a say in the music that they play, and if a student comes to me with a request I will do my best to incorporate that music into our lessons.
Teaching Styles: For me, the best part of teaching is when a student's confidence soars due to mastering a new skill. I believe that music can be a great teacher of self confidence and self discipline, and I work to always keep it a positive experience. I set reasonable short and long term goals with the student so that they have something specific to work towards, and I write them down in the student's notebook so that they can look back at what they have accomplished if they start to feel frustrated. I require all students to keep a notebook where we list scales they have mastered, and set our weekly goals as well as important information that they may need (such as materials they need to get, concert dates, etc.). I have found that having a personal notebook helps the student's confidence and helps them to keep track of their progress. In addition, I work with the student to create a practice plan that works with their schedule and abilities so that they have a regular time set aside each day to practice their materials. The most important thing that I do though, is keep communication going with the student so that I can tailor my lessons to the student's interests.
Instruments: Violin, Viola
I have been teaching privately and in the group setting since college for a variety of different instruments. I find that my students are all unique, and I always try to help them find the best way for them to learn, whether it is through aural understanding, music reading, composition and improvisation, or a little of all of these approaches. To me, consistency is key, and a even little practice every day goes a long way. I will often pick out repertoire for my students so that they are instroduced to standard repertoire, but I am also open to trying songs the students are interested in, as long as they are appropriate for their skill level.
Instruments: Violin, Cello, Viola, Fiddle, Double Bass
Lessons are kept fun and tailored to the student's needs and skill level. We start with the basics and progress from there. I integrate theory and learning to read music into the lessons from the very beginning.
Instruments: Violin, Viola
Teaching Methods: I'll find the best methods for each student, and I believe that methods can be varied. For example, Suzuki Methods only can bring a beginner to medium level. After few year training with Suzuki, it is hard to make progressions on technique. However, Suzuki Methods can be a good fit for children under 10, because of the fun of study.
Teaching Styles: Patience is the key. It is the fundamental requirement of a string teacher. I believe I am the most patient teacher you can find in Arizona. I taught 1 student with ADD, and I developed his talent on music. After 2 years training with me, his concentration had been improved significantly, and he played 2 recitals successfully.
Instruments: Piano, Violin, Viola
I have more than ten years of teaching experiences. I have taught in Arizona State University String Project, University of Miami String Academy, West Laboratory School Violin Program in Coral Gables, FL and was the viola instructor in the music program in elementary, junior high and senior high schools and the sectional viola teacher for string ensembles in Taiwan. Several of my students participated in the All-State Orchestra, won the regional competitions.

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
