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
Patience is the key. It is the fundamental requirement of a string teacher. I believe I am the most patient teacher you can find in Arizona. I taught 1 student with ADD, and I developed his talent on music. After 2 years training with me, his concentration had been improved significantly, and he played 2 recitals successfully.
Suzuki method books are great for beginners, because it's more engaging to learn basic technique through playing pieces than it is repeating scales and exercises. Once a student has solid bow technique and basic left hand dexterity, it's time to start focusing more on scales and targeted exercises and how they relate to pieces. I believe that an incremental approach to technique yields the best results when performing--for example, when approaching a new piece, the first step should be to search out the challenging or problematic passages, identify the techniques required to play them, and drill those techniques using scales and exercises. In this way proficiency is built in manageable segments, always having a clear goal in sight. I also think analysis and composition are important elements of performance, even for students who have no interest in composing professionally--knowing how music is constructed, and how to write music, is tremendously helpful in finding your own voice and interpretation in performance.
Instruments: Piano, Violin, Viola
For beginning piano students, I tend to use the Alfred method books 1-3, then graduate to Hanon "the virtuoso pianist" I stress the "fundamentals" while adding solo repertory for enjoyment and solo playing. Simple piano pieces keep the lessons fun for beginners, while classical works are encouraged for intermediate and advanced students. For violin and viola, one of my choices is "All for Strings". I do add Mueller-Rusch books after the first year, and some solo pieces from the Suzuki methods. Again, I stress the fundamentals of correct bowing, posture and regular practice of scales and etudes.
Instruments: Violin, Cello, Viola, Fiddle, Double Bass
I am a patient, honest, and versatile teacher. I let the student guide the pace of lessons as I lead the direction. I like to talk about expectations to make sure that we are always on the same page. If you wish to take lessons in order to learn how to play for fun, we can do that. If you would like to learn how to play specific songs, I can set you up for that. If you aspire to be first chair in your orchestra, or win a competition in your school our around you area, I can instruct you how to do so. For solo players, I look to learn from the Suzuki Book series while inserting other concertos, pieces, and etudes that will help to develop your sound. Taking lessons with myself is equivalent to taking an airplane trip. At first, they check the wings, and weight of the plane while making sure that the gas for the plane and the food for the guests are prepared. Upon entering the run way for take off, the plane begins to pick up speed. It starts slow, but then pick up speeds up to 500 mph in order to reach your destination sooner. Lessons with me will be very similar, but not as expensive as a round trip airfare.
Instruments: Piano, Violin, Viola
I have more than ten years of teaching experiences. I have taught in Arizona State University String Project, University of Miami String Academy, West Laboratory School Violin Program in Coral Gables, FL and was the viola instructor in the music program in elementary, junior high and senior high schools and the sectional viola teacher for string ensembles in Taiwan. Several of my students participated in the All-State Orchestra, won the regional competitions.

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
