For young piano students, I use John Thompson's Easiest Piano Course and A Dozen a Day. For adults, I like to use Alfred's Basic Adult Piano Course for a lesson book. I use various books for additional songs or technique depending upon a student's interests and abilities. I like to use different types of music - classical, traditional, pop, modern, etc.  For strings, I like to use String Builder, Suzuki, and other method and etude books. However, I do not teach the Suzuki method. I use the book for the songs and exercises in the book.  I also like all students to work from a theory book. When we learn how to speak, we also learn how to read and write in our language. I believe that the same is important for music. I use different books for adults and children.  As for continuing students, I will see what they know and continue from there.

It is extremely important to set realistic goals for each student. I accomplish this by isolating each issue and not trying to spend one lesson addressing everything. Instead of overwhelming the student, I try to set realistic and obtainable goals for each student while retaining the challenge. As the student improves, I gradually start setting more challenging goals according to each student's ability. When the student improves, (s)he becomes more motivated to learn more, which is crucial for continuous development. I also believe in individualizing instruction as much as possible in order to cater to each student's unique needs.

I teach the suzuki method for violin and for piano. I focus on music theory, sight reading, creativity and performance. I also use excercise books for violin such as the Schradieck violin technique, essential elements and Wholfart method for advanced beginners. I first make sure that tension is released and once the tension is released, we move on to playing scales and learning bowing technique. I assign repertoire usually one or two songs for the student to learn. For adult students I try to first find out on what they are interested in playing whether it is jazz, pop, rock or classical, and we move along from there.

The initial meeting with a student is where we start. Has there been any musical training. Ability to read music. Interest in the instrument. It is a two way interview where we begin to know each other on terms that we will be dealing with if we choose to work together. Practice is most important in learning an instrument. And I play along with the students to help with their intonation. Taking turns playing measures helps with counting and duets just sound good.

For the past few years, I have traveled to students' homes for instrumental tutoring and private lessons. My experience has ranged from tutoring elementary school students to teaching adult beginners. I have also performed in several music ensembles that have included performers of all ages and skill levels. While I have more experience with students in the age range of middle school to high school, I am open to teaching most age groups because I believe everyone deserves a good music education. I make it my mission to help students get to their desired skill level and to make the process memorable and fun!

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.
