Instruments:

For beginning students, I incorporate music that is meaningful to the student while also building a strong technical foundation. For advanced students, I work with the students on a balance of fun and challenging repetoire that will push the student to meet their performance goals.

Instruments:

My goal is to foster a love of music through mastery, excellence and fun!  I never want lessons to feel like something that has to be done, but rather, something to look forward to.  I accomplish this by incorporating the interests of each student and including time in each lesson to improvise, create, or learn music they are interested in.  I tailor my instruction to each student and keep track of progress so we know how to proceed.

Instruments:

I’ve noticed the Suzuki Method books for Violin/ Viola are still a classic; and for good reason- so I enjoy using those for my lessons. They continue to motivate the student by having goal-oriented exercises and I reflect that in my lessons. I also like to put EXTREME emphasis on LISTENING during my lessons, in which the Progressive Duets Series (by Carl Fischer) and Beautiful Music for Two Violins (by Samuel-Applebaum) helps immensely with encouragement and confidence in their playing. For guitar, I use The Modern Method for Guitar Series (by William Leavitt of Berklee) combined with my own improvisational education methods.

Violins for Beginners: To Rent or to Buy?

...an instrument that is over 100 years old, while others want the latest model made by a modern luthier. The choice is up to you. But what you want to find is a violin shop that lets you play the instruments before you make a buying decision. The same thought goes for buying a violin bow. While an acceptable full-sized violin on average costs anywhere from $5,000 – $22,000, bows are not cheap, either. To find a good, full-sized violin bow, expect to spend about $1,000 – $1,800 at least. (Bows for smaller violins, like half size, will be cheaper, as will the ... Read More

And, it’s especially helpful when you’re not familiar with the song or there’s a section of the song that you don’t remember (Bridges and Interludes are notorious surprises that can derail a song’s performance).         Wrap-up   Rolling in the Deep is a modern classic. Begin strumming the chords to this song and there’ll be no shortage of singers that will begin their scorned-lover battle cry.   I hope that you’ve enjoyed this easy acoustic guitar arrangement of the Rolling in the Deep chords and I thank you for ...

...part of the song (say hello to heavy drums and electric guitars). Since this a piano-centric post, we have to say that the piano section is far superior to the latter half—but honestly, it’s all pretty cool.   Regarding the form of the song, “Come Sail Away” juxtaposes two main concepts: first, Styx goes for a ballad-like opening, complete with piano and synthesizer interjections. In the second half, they focus on thick guitar texture and heavy drumming. The album version features a full minute-long synthesizer tangent in the second half.   Practice Tip:   Don’t let the 16th notes in ... Read More

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.
