I adapt the method to the student.  I usually use Nancy Faber series for the young child. I  try to familiarize the student with different types of music so he/she is exposed to many styles and periods of music and therefore, can choose what he/she prefers.

Instruments:

For beginning violin and viola students, I use the Essential Elements method books. For my beginner piano students, I use the Faber Piano Adventures Lesson and Theory books. For older and more experienced students of all instruments, we'll work on scales and arpeggios, études, and a solo piece. I have studied the methodologies off Kodaly, Orff, and Dalcroze and will regularly incorporate different aspects from their teachings into my students' lessons.

Instruments:

I am most interested in having students who want to play because they love music, no matter what their skill level. I do not believe in having a "method" or a "technique." The only thing I do believe in is that the student must have a desire to communicate and wish to find the best way to use their instrument to make their instrument "speak" or "sing." Music should be a part of their lives - so if they are beginners, I want them to listen to different kinds music (not just their particular instrument) and find their tastes. I enjoy teaching adults as well as children. If they are more advanced, then I wish to help them find or cultivate their voice and style further. I recommend reading and listening to old musicians - Cortot, Rachmaninoff, Kreisler, etc.

Instruments:

For beginning students I like to focus on the Essential Elements series, such as Essential Elements 2000 for Strings, which is a wonderful way to combine technique and music reading; which I believe are the two most important basic skills.  After these building blocks I start to choose reperiotire that reinforces and advances these concepts.  For adult students, I like to use the same building blocks -- if necessary -- and supplementing that with their own interests.

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.
