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
With my mother being a violin and viola teacher, we had students at our house for as far back as I can remember. I always had something to say, I almost cannot bare listening to someone without trying to make them play better! Since I always possesed the ability to spot the best practical (and fun) solution for somebody's musical struggles, I started teaching very early. I had private students during highschool and college, as well as online students. After graduating last year and before moving to The States, I taught in a music school, which was one of the most rewarding experiences. I like to see progress on the spot with students, but without them feeling the difficulty. I love coming up with metaphores students can relate to, thus connecting playing an instrument with all the other interests in life. I belive that if a student truly feels the instrument is a means of expressing feelings, there will be no need for reminding him to practice, and it works! I am classically trained, but I do not force that on students. The most important thing is to be fully motivated and excited, so I practice a healthy ballance when it comes to picking repertoire - useful pieces, and pieces that the student really wants to play. That is the best possible motivator. I belive public performance is something that should be natural and joyful, so I encourage playing in front of colleagues and even organising small (or large) recitals in fron of family and friends, so that all that music learned can touch other people and speak to them too!
Instruments: Guitar, Violin, Saxophone, Bass Guitar, Banjo, Ukulele, Mandolin, Electric Violin, Fiddle
Teaching Methods: For beginning students who have no experience on their instrument, I usually spend a fair chunk of time working on basic technique using books like the Essential Elements series or Greg Horne's similar books for folk instruments. I usually combine the book material with other songs/pieces relevant to each student's interests. For more advanced students, I usually find a mix of repetoire relevant to their interests and technical exercises for them to refine and develop technique.
Teaching Styles: I allow students to work at their own pace while also setting realistic attainable goals. I want students to feel relaxed during their lessons so I try to establish an atmosphere that's both informal yet studious. One of my top priorities as a teacher is to understand what a student is most interested in and then focus our lessons on what they love. The best way to understand technique and theory is to apply it to something that you enjoy so I always try to attain this!
Instruments: Piano, Violin, Viola
Teaching Methods: Teaching materials includes different kinds of studies, student concertos, and sonatas. The main teaching book is “The Violin Method”. Suzuki violin book is part of my teaching material, but I like students to develop their techniques first.
Teaching Styles: Depends on students' needs.
Instruments: Violin, Viola, Keyboard
I have been doing music for the last 20 years, and teaching privately for the last 10 years. Over the course of my career I have learn that keeping my students motivated and engage is the key for a success. I try to develop appreciation for music, while having fun. Consistent practice is very import but it doesn't have to be boring, I teach my student to have fun while learning. I usually try to balance my student with Classical and Popular music so that they stay motivated. I believe my exposure to different styles of music during the course of my career has given my the opportunity to learn different approaches that better serve my students.
Instruments: Piano, Violin, Viola
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!

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
