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:
Instruments: Violin, Viola
Teaching Methods: I use Essential Elements with my beginners until they are comfortable with the instrument. Once they seem comfortable, I switch them over to Suzuki books so that they can begin learning more standard repertoire. However, I would not say that I use the Suzuki method; I merely just use the books because they have good pieces in them. For my more advanced students, I pick pieces and etudes based on individual level.
Teaching Styles: Each student is different, so it is hard for me to pinpoint my style into a couple of sentences. However, I set goals each week for my students to achieve. I think this motivates students over the course of the week when we are apart. I always acknowledge achievements because I believe that positive feedback is just as important as critiques.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice, Violin, Cello, Viola, Trumpet, Trombone, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Drums, Bass Guitar, Recorder, Euphonium, French Horn, Tuba, Mallet Percussion, Bassoon, Keyboard, Acoustic Guitar

Teaching Styles: I use a Practice based incentive program to develop healthy musical habits. I listen to the goals each student wants to achieve and set up steps to accomplish the goal. While in a lesson I establish basic musicianship, while developing and shaping a performers self image. Warm encouragement and helpful criticism are used to create a safe testing ground to forge and hone new skills.
Instruments: Violin, Cello, Viola
During my 15 plus years of teaching violin, I worked in a variety of class settings (public and private school as well as in private offsite lessons), using different teaching styles with a wide range of student levels (beginners to undegraduates) and ages (3 to adult). Through these experiences, I have become very flexible and improvisational in my educational approach, and am open to learn and adjust to new and uncertain work environments, perhaps more easily than most. After my studies and experience working as an orchestra director for middle and high school orchestras in Indiana, I learned a lot more about teaching viola, cello and bass. I'm all about the students having fun while learning to play. A non-judmental enviroment is also very important.
Instruments: Violin, Viola
I feel very good when I see that my students are enjoying and making progress in their playing~! Therefore, I help my students find their goals to help them see their accomplishments and achievements as well.
For beginning and intermediate students, I like to start by teaching the Suzuki violin method and introducing classical pieces along the way. During the holidays, I will also introduce Christmas music, and many famous pieces like The Nutcracker. For more advanced students seeking to shape their careers around a certain genre of music, I encourage their interest while choosing pieces to accentuate their talent in those genres. Various levels of theory are also taught for all ages and levels of students.

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
