Our music lesson students will have the opportunity to take lessons from the comfort of their own home or in one of the teachers studios. Careful attention is placed on each student to ensure a custom lesson plan. Our music teachers understand that every student has different needs and abilities and therefore the lessons will be planned with that knowledge in mind.
lessons are available in the following areas:
Teaching Methods: For beginners, I assess their knowledge of theory and the violin and go from there. I give some students flashcards to learn note names and note values, while others come in knowing all the beginning steps. We work on posture and the bow hand and then dive into beginner pieces. I use the Suzuki Method Books.
Teaching Styles: I pride myself in not pushing the student too hard. From experience I know how it feels to be worn out from the violin and start to dislike playing and practicing. It is important to let the student develop a love for their instrument. While a little motivational push is necessary at times, I try to keep the student practicing with things they like to do. Whether that is learning a song they like or doing excercises they like into the practice routine, it is always best to make sure the student is learning and loving.
Instruments: Violin, Viola
Teaching Methods: My own: a combination of traditional, Suzuki and what appeals/works for the individual student
Teaching Styles: 30 minutes private lessons unless student is motivate to practice more; then longer lesson times are appropriate
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Violin, Cello, Viola, Drums, Bass Guitar
Teaching Methods: I adjust my teaching based on the particular student. For adults I take the lessons in whatever direction they like. Subjects covered are more often than not dictated by the student's interest. For children I do take their interests into account but also guide them towards getting better at their instrument. Reading music is an important thing for all my students.
Teaching Styles: My main goal is to give each student the tools to be successful on their own. This is important because most progress is made outside of the lesson. This includes music reading and general knowledge of the music. I feel that success comes from the student feeling that THEY have accomplished something.
Instruments: Guitar, Violin, Mandolin, Electric Violin, Fiddle
My preferred method for very young students has been the Suzuki method, as I believe a well trained ear continues to be our best musical learning tool later in life as well. When students progress to reading, the full line of Suzuki books can of course be utilized, but it is very advisable to incorporate additional materials and techniques. The Kodaly method is also useful and even more traditional 'reading first' techniques can be used if requested. For older students or professional musicians I take into account their musical goals and ambitions. For instance, students more interested in live band performance or genres of music other than classical, I teach concentrating on the ability to improvise, interact with other members of the group, and even which gear to use.
Teaching Methods: With beginners and early age students I combine Susuki and traditional method along a series of exercises and songs that help them build the core of violin playing. I make sure that I provide my students the necessary tools to succeed. With my students I have developed a curriculum that covers technique, scales and repertory. For advanced students I work Jaques Dont studies, Kreutzer etudes, Scales and Arpeggios, and we cover Baroque and Classical violin repertory like Vivaldi and Bach concerti.
Teaching Styles: I guide my students through a series of weekly challenges that helps them track their progress. Each student gets to log their practice and write down any questions and concerns they may have. That way we address not only what the teacher wants but what the student needs. I work carefully on details to make sure that my students learn well and develop a solid technique. I like to modify my teaching style according to the student's learning style. By connecting with their learning process I make sure that they are connecting with the instrument as well.

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.Ok
