I start string students in the Suzuki method books. I teach in a Suzuki influenced style, but I start students reading right away. If the student is able to read words, they are ready to read notes and reading music is an essential part of a student's music education. For many younger students, I will also create etudes to accompany their Suzuki pieces. Woodwind students will start in the Rubank series and work on other technique building exercises. These methods are how I typically start my students, but more advanced and adult students will likely use different materials based on ability level and interests. All students receive a monthly practice sheet to log their practicing habits. I keep a sheet for my own records with detailed notes so I can plan the next week's lesson.

Piano Lesson Plans: What to Expect and How to Prepare

...students sight read slowly and at a consistent rhythm. Adding time for this in your piano lesson plans will help your students get comfortable and familiar with reading music, and eventually they’ll rely more on their music reading skills than their memories to be able to play their assigned pieces.     Assigned Pieces   It’s not a good idea to assign a piece of music to a student until they’ve gained a good amount of hand dexterity and independence, finger strength, music reading knowledge and ability to play scales and exercises in rhythm. The sort of pieces you’ll assign to your... Read More

...cloth, and a chin-rest key should all be part of your musical kit. Learn how to use the chin rest key (a bent hairpin or an eyeglass screwdriver can serve in a pinch). Make sure you don’t drop your rosin – it shatters easily, and then it’s impossible to use. Keep rosin in the rosin box, and wrap it back up immediately after you’ve used it. Figure out how to put a string on the violin: if your child is too young to do this, then, as the parent, you’ll want to be able to handle a popped or broken string quickly. Breaking ... Read More

Jazz Scales: The Augmented Scale

...the augmented scale in a minor key. Once again, play this chord on the piano and practice the scale to see if it sounds right to your ears. Conclusion Hopefully this post has conveyed my enthusiasm for the augmented scale. You probably won’t find yourself using the augmented scale in every solo you take. But, the point of studying all these different scales isn’t only to transform yourself into the greatest improviser of all time. That could be one goal. We study music because it enriches our minds and our lives. I chose to write about the augmented scale ... Read More

After part three and the first portion of this article, we are ready to learn some more advanced concepts to help us learn to improvise at a higher level. We spoke a bit about the ii-V-I progression and incorporating it into jazz exercises a couple of blog posts ago. Learning ii-V-I lines through all ... Read More

Intro to Jazz Bass Technique

...jazz without music! However, the secret is that all scales are made of intervals [the distance between two notes]! So any minor scale or chord must have a minor 3rd! As long as you know the pattern/shape for that interval (and even though knowing the note name is important, you don’t have to know it to play it) you can play the right note for that scale or chord. A flat 7th or b7th is ALWAYS a whole step below the root or parallel to the root across two strings on the same fret or position – this is what is meant ... 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.


Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
