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: Piano, Guitar, Violin, Cello, Viola, Bass Guitar, Double Bass
Teaching Methods: I was taught the Suzuki method for classical instruments, which focuses on teaching beginners by ear, then focusing on technique and reading music as skills progress. I aslo suggest purchasing one of many technique books from authors such as Hal Leonard. I always find what a student's strengths are and then work on thier weaknesses so that the final part of a lesson ends with confidence and a sense of accomplishment. I have always found practicing much easier when I enjoyed what I was doing, and I encourage that experience for any student! For guitar, focus will be mainly based on the student's goals, but should include exercizes for the left and right hands, along with rhythm training and vocals if necessary.
Teaching Styles: I like to find what motivates students to pick their instrument, and if they have heard any pieces they would like to perform. Starting with goals will allow a sense of focus to keep as a core part of learning and improvement. Lessons should be fun and enjoyable, so I will always encourage an environment where motivation and not pressure drives effort. Connecting with people has always been easy because I don't judge, I'm here to teach music!
Instruments: Guitar, Violin, Trumpet, Trombone, Drums, Euphonium, French Horn, Mallet Percussion, Orchestral Percussion
Teaching Methods: I believe there are two methods that help students to grow musically: 1. To help them acheive their own personal goals musically 2. To expose them to musical ideas that will help them to grow musically I tailor both of theses approaches to fit the students needs,
Teaching Styles: My teaching style is always geared towards the student and their musical success. I have students discuss their personal goals on their first lesson. I then provide my guidence and experience to help them reach their personal goals. Through the course of study, I then expose students to new exciting ideas that continue to build their skills as musicians.
Instruments: Violin, Viola
Teaching Methods: I start the student first by using The Mastery book by William Dick and Laurie Scott to learn the basic technique of the instrument. As soon as I think the student is ready I start teaching simple songs by rote. Eventually I introduce to the student to String Explorer to teach music reading and emphasize the techniques already explored in the Mastery Book and learn by rote.
Teaching Styles: I strongly encourage the student and parent to be methodic and consciensious about learning the basic technique for the instrument before he/she starts to play differnt repertoire. Nevertheless I try to introduce simple tunes and songs to encourage the student to progress rapidly and get a love for the instrument.
Instruments: Piano, Violin, Viola
Teaching Methods: I teach a predominantly Suzuki as I learned with the Suzuki method and I am trained as a Suzuki instructor. I don't completely immerse my students with the Suzuki method and while learning how to play by ear, I teach students how to read music so that they are able to compose their own music.
Teaching Styles: I really enjoy watching my students grow in skill and passion for their instrument. I believe in letting my students know how much they are improving, and emphasizing their growth each week. I am inspired by my students and I believe that my students are inspired by me!
Teaching Methods: I utilize music theory, sight reading, scales/etudes/other musical warm-up techniques, and various musical repertoire within lessons to provide an all-around teaching approach. I am a strong advocate for preventing musical injury by utilizing relaxation/breathing techniques within lessons to promote successful performances.
Teaching Styles: I live and breathe music. I'm easily adaptable to all ages and all abilities. I strive to find and adapt to my student’s learning style to bring out the best potential for learning effectively and efficiently.I also collaborates with students and family members when establishing lesson goals and finding musical preferences.
