My style of teaching revolves around a solid foundation in technique and proper ways to practice. This is the hardest part about having music lessons, because its all about muscle memory.  I advise learning the basics before jumping straight into learning songs.  Again, its very important to play the right way, and more importantly, practice the right way. Another thing that I teach is that failure is not bad in itself, but its only part of the process that lets a sudent know what to work on. Many times, failure is a result of certain muscles and movements not being trained yet, and not something that is out of reach. When learning how to play an instrument, patience is a must.

My teaching experience dates back to my college days, as I began teaching private lessons part time about 6 years ago. Encouraging regular practice on a consistent schedule is one of the key point I like to emphasize for all students, as it helps the student to progress and gain a passion for the instrument.

I teach the basics using a combination of methods, customizing lessons to each student's skill level, ability level, and interest (classical/folk/modern). For beginning students I suggest using the Suzuki Method, or Hal Leonard's Essential Elements. Once each student is ready to move beyond the fundamentals, I find exercises and solos to best fit and improve their skill level for recital performances, competitions, strings class/orchestra, or other activities. I use various age appropriate interactive activities and teaching aids to help each student learn. Regardless of age, however, I try to find out what the student is interested in, and guide lessons accordingly to keep students engaged and having fun, no matter what the students' ability level.

Instruments:

For beginning students,on violin, viola and cello, I work with the Essential Elements and Suzuki books (depending on the student). They offer a lot of practical information, as well as beginning music theory for all string students. For my beginning violin and viola students, I only work with them through Essential Elements book 3. At that time, I would refer them to a teacher who's primary instrument is violin. With my cello students, all levels are welcome. I also use the Essentially Strings for some beginning cello students, depending on the student. As we progress in cello, they would need to purchase a scale book, possibly other Suzuki books, an etude book, as well as other individual pieces that they would learn. I am a very technically based teacher, so the basics and foundational methods are very important and would be the primary focus in the beginning, as we learn and gain comfort with all string instruments.

Flute Warm Ups: Simple Exercises for Practice

...to practice them utilizing all dynamic levels. Try starting off each note as soft as you can, get as loud as you can, and then fade back out to as quiet as you can play and vice versa.     Another good exercise that will help you warm up is doing octave slurs. Octave slurs will help you feel how your embouchure needs to shift between low notes and high notes.

His nephew, Giuseppe Giovanni Battista Guarneri, (1698-1745), became the best known luthier of the family, and is today commonly known by the nickname “del Gesu” because he would print I.H.S. (Latin abbreviation for “Jesus, Savior of Man”) on his violin labels.[3] According to Encyclopedia Britannica, the virtuoso violinist Paganini enjoyed the ‘robust’ tone of Guarneri del Gesu’s instruments – Paganini’s Guarneri violin is now displayed at the Palazzo Municipale of Genoa.   Stradivarius: The Peak of Perfection Antonio Stradivarius also had a very long and fruitful life as a luthier.

What will happen is that you will see the words and, immediately upon recognizing them, you will hear the words in your head. This is exactly how people who are very experienced with sheet music use sheet music to understand what a composer intended.   When you have enough experience working with reading music, when you see a concert pitch A, you will hear 440 Hz in your head.

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.
