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
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.
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.
Instruments: Violin, Viola
For beginning students, I start with Gerald E. Anderson and Robert S. Frost's All for Strings. Once the students made progression in basic fundamentals, I use the Suzuki Methods Books and Solo for Young Violinists by Barbara Barber. Along with that, I introduce the students to the chamber music so that the students learn to play with others. For adults, I try to provide the students in their interested music so that, playing music is fun and entertaining to them.
Instruments: Violin, Cello, Viola
Teaching Methods: For beginners I like to start with the Suzuki Method. But I'm also familiar with other couple methods such as Essential Elements and Essential Techniques for strings book 1-3. In addition to follow a method book, I like to supplement some small pieces from other books as well as incorporate some of the pieces that the student want to learn. Once the student is in the intermediate to advanced level of playing, I like to use the String Basics Book, Carl Flesh Scale Book, Kayser's ,Schradieck, Dont, Kreutzer's 42 Studies, among others a long with some solo repertoire.
Teaching Styles: I believe that every child can learn to play an instrument. Providing the right environment, a good comunication and engament wtih the student is fundamental in order to give the student the chance to express himself/herself through music, feel confident and proud of his/her achievement. Nothing is more gratifying than seeing my students to feel good with themlseves while making music and making progress. My goal is to be a resource for them but also teach them to become auto sufficient for their future.

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
