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, Fiddle, Double Bass

Teaching Methods: For young beginner students, I start with Essential Elements book one so they can play along with the CD with adjustable tempo. Later, I gradually introduce the songs from Suzuki books and continue applying it with Suzuki teaching method. In addition to Suzuki classical songs, I add some duets to play with students for building the chamber ability for students. Also, some fiddle tunes for addressing some technique left out from the Suzuki books to keep lessons challenging and fun.
Teaching Styles: I love teaching and find it rewarding to do by watching my students making greater improvements. Not only I encourage students to extend their interests of playing music but also like to challenge their potentials by pushing tow ards the limits. My main goal is to teach my students to appreciate and enjoy the music. Also, I emphasize that parents to take an active role in lessons, as they will be the "teacher" when students practice at home.
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 am a very lively and fun teacher who is both stringent and patient with my students. I teach in order to help others grow. I consider myself a guide on one's journey into the world of music. My students must be ready to take chances, overcome obstacles, and soar towards success.
Instruments: Violin, Cello, Viola, Saxophone, Clarinet
I have been teaching private violin lessons since I was in high school-about 7 years ago. I have always had an influx of violin students and was employed by the University of Idaho to teach private violin lessons for their Preparatory Division. My primary instrument is violin, but I also play viola, cello, saxophone and clarinet fluently. My lessons focus around creating characteristic sound and correct technique, as well as short lessons on music history and theory to keep the students' music education well rounded. My previous students range from age 3 to age 50, so I have experience in all age groups. I find all aspects of music absolutely fascinating and love sharing my enthusiasm and knowledge with my students.

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
