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 mainly use the Suzuki method, but also teach other non-tradiational methods including hmyns, gospel, ect.
Teaching Styles: I believe in incorporating positive reinforcement in my lessons. I set realistic goals and develop lesson plans. I encourage my students to progress at their set pace. I tailor my teaching methods to my student's needs in order to have the most productive lessons. I strive to make each lesson with my student a great learning experience.
Teaching Methods: For small children and adults alike, I like to start with the Suzuki Method. I utuilize candy, stickers, colorful highlighters, etc. to motivate my students. After several Suzuki songs have been mastered, we can move on to more fun music or alternative styles--whatever the student wants to learn! While I am familiar with the more classical route--solo repertoire, concertos, etudes, scale studies-- if you are not interested in classical music, I have many books containing fiddle and jazz tunes! I also love doing student-teacher duets as well & I want my students to have opportunities to perform in front of an audience.
Teaching Styles: My teaching style is loving yet strict. I want my students to make progress and develop confidence without wasting so much time! I think often times small children need to be nudged a little in order to practice, which the teacher can have a great influence on.
Instruments: Violin, Viola, Keyboard
Teaching Methods: For beginners students that are still young, I usually start with a combination of Hal Leonard's Essential Elements, Suzuki Method, and Franz Wohlfahrt's beginner, and intermediate books. Plus a combination of solo classical and popular pieces according to the student level. I also like to introduce and encourage my students to learn a basic concept of piano, since it helps the student to develop a sense of pitch, intervals, and most important INTONATION. My students are to give solo recitals, and orchestral concerts if possible. Adults are not exempt from this, they as well are assumed to participate in this activities and teaching methods.
Teaching Styles: I believe that learning should be fun, and easy. I am certain that each students is capable of playing the instrument when he or she receives positive feed back, right method, and patience. I try to set realistic short and long term goals for each student. I strongly believe that the teacher should be able to adapt to each student's personality and develop a teaching method that will better serve the needs of the student. I am constantly thinking how can I teach the old traditional methods in new ways. My Philosophy is to have fun while learning.
Instruments: Violin, Viola
Teaching Methods: I'm an extremely friendly and dedicated Suzuki teacher. I earned my Suzuki Pedagogy Certification under the tutelage of Kimberly Meier-Sims. I take my profession as an artist and my role as a teacher very seriously, but still keeping the lessons fun and exciting because that's how kids learn!
Teaching Styles: I believe in the teacher, student and parent triangle from the Suzuki method: that the triangle must be balanced in order to achieve and retain the most from each lessons. It is my job as a teacher to create a "can't fail environment" for the student and it takes one step at a time. My goal as a teacher is to guide and develope students into nobel human beings with a kind heart.
Instruments: Violin, Cello, Viola
Teaching Methods: For the beginning string player I like to start with a Hal Leonard method book to communicate and help string players master the basics. Once the student has progressed I will begin some solo repertoire from varying genres. I find it is always helpful to allow students to play music that they enjoy –- experiencing a range of both popular and classical pieces to broaden their horizons. I encourage my students to do a lot of listening as a part of their practice. I believe that if a student can hear how something is played they will begin to grasp the intent of the music at hand, which builds upon their previous knowledge. I intentionally plan my instruction to be fun and engaging, yet challenging.
Teaching Styles: I will always set goals that I know are within reach for my students. I want to create an environment that will help them develop a passion for music in a way in which they are comfortable, not frustrated. In my mind I am always going to put the person first that I am teaching by trying to find out what inspires them. I will then assess and change my style accordingly. Music lessons for me are more than just learning an instrument; being a true musician is about discovering who you are as an individual, gaining confidence, and practicing perseverance.

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
