I have been teaching for about 10 years now, both privately and in various music lesson stores throughout the Tampa Bay area. I have taught students ranging from 5 to 60 years of age. My students have been accepted into Blake Performing Arts High School, All County Orchestras, Tampa Bay Youth Orchestras, Tampa Metropolitan Youth Orchestras, and even Florida's All State Orchestras. I have also been able to develop my students' abilities from being last in their orchestras to first chair in their music programs.

Since graduating from college as a music teacher, I have been giving private lessons for 38 years! It is sheer joy for me to be able to teach adults all the way down to kindergarten age students.  The approach and kind of music is so varied from one level to the next that it is fun for me to keep each student fully engaged and loving every minute of their lessons. The modern, up to date PIANO books that I use introduce ALL the styles including classical, pop, jazz, blues, boogie and ragtime.These books also cover music theory, technique and provide performance pieces. All my school-age students like to play the MUSIC MOUNTAIN game, where they climb up with weekly points for practicing and learning songs by memory. We keep track with a special practice record book. Prizes occur every 100 points. Ear training, finger technique, sight reading and music theory are important in learning the keyboard.  These concepts can be enjoyable since I use a variety of games like Music Checkers, Music Bingo, a Giant Music Hopscotch Staff (for young students) and large movable notes on a music staff board (for composition).

Instruments:

For beginning cello students of all ages, I normally use one of my teacher's method books: Cellocity by Helga Winold of Indiana University. As my cello students progress, I slowly introduce smaller pieces that can normally be found in Suzuki method books. After my cello students have advanced significantly, I begin to introduce more complex pieces that are found in the standard cello repertoire. Eventually, my students reach a level where they gain the ability to gauge their experience level and select their own pieces with my approval. Throughout the process, I also integrate tidbits of music theory and history to give the student a more well-rounded experience.  As for guitar and piano, I normally take a more custom approach to teaching that tends to not revolve around any specific method book. However, I typically teach beginning pianists and guitarists how to read through and play simple pieces of music so that they understand the fundamentals before moving on to a mix of songs or pieces that I select and songs or pieces that the student wishes to play so as to keep things fresh and exciting.

It is extremely important to me that every student benefits from his or her own personally tailored lesson. This means that there is no "cut and paste" lesson plan to use with each student. Once I get to know the student, I will be able to judge their level of playing ability, their ability to read music, how good their posture is, how good their hand position is, etc. It is also important to me to get to know the student's personality, so that when teaching, I can help make the student feel as comfortable as possible during the lesson. Then, we must determine what the student wants to learn, and figure out the best way to about learning whatever that may be. Finally, we will determine the student's short-term and long-term goals and keep track of these in a weekly planner or notebook.

For many Americans, this Christmas, which was just 18 days after the attack on Pearl Harbor, was not a happy one.

The Accordion: Bluegrass Music's Forgotten Instrument

...Bluegrass is a music with a long and storied history, starting with the first immigrants to settle in the Appalachian mountains. An aspect of that history that is being explored more and more frequently, as modern bands seek to expand the sound to its fullest, is the use of the accordion. This use of the accordion is not due to modern musicians looking to experiment just for the sake of experimenting. The first Bluegrass band, Bill Monroe and The Blue Grass Boys, had an accordion player in their band during early iterations of their group, but settled on not having one just before ... Read More

Education – we recommend choosing a guitar teacher who has at least a Bachelor’s degree in music, and can teach a variety of styles, including rock, pop, jazz, and classical guitar. If the teacher does not have a music degree, ask where they received their education or who they studied with, and for how long. 3.)
