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
I started teaching part-time when I was 19 years old. After I moved to America, I built my own violin/viola studio with more than 20 students in the University of Arkansas community school of music before I moved to Arizona. Each year, my students were encouraged to play studio recitals.
Instruments: Violin, Cello, Viola
I have been teaching privately for 5 years and have had many opportunities to teach in the public schools over the years as well. From August 2013 to May 2014 I worked on a Native American reservation where I worked alongside the Phoenix Symphony to teach two violin classes at the elementary school. During that same time I was student teaching at a Junior High and two Elementary schools where I worked with students on ensemble music. I believe in creating a practice plan with the student to help them keep motivated and I require all students to keep a notebook where they can easily track their progress. I work with the student to identify what types of music they like, and if they come to me with a request to work on a specific song, I will work to find a skill-appropriate arrangement of the piece. I believe that festivals and youth/community orchestras are essential for student growth, and I had several of my students audition for JHFO (an Arizona Jr. High honor orchestra), Regional Orchestra, All-State Orchestra, and college auditions, as well as encouraging my cello students to participate in Cellobration (an annual festival in Arizona exclusively for school-age cellists of any ability). I love teaching, and I welcome students of any age and ability!
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice, Violin
Teaching Methods: For piano beginners I use the Faber book series. I prefer these books because it gives a mixture of theory and technique that I think is essential to learn at an early stage.
For violin beginners I prefer to use the Suzuki Method books. These books are great because they get the student playing quickly, while still introducing the foundations of basic theory for reading music.
Beginning guitar is a little more flexible depending on the students goals and the styoe they would like to learn. In the past I have used Hal Leonard's book series, the Carcassi series, or created unique lesson by finding tabulature for songs the student was interested in.
Voice is also a more tailored experience based on students preferences and thanks to the ability to find sheet music for nearly everything online.
Teaching Styles: I do my best to tailor my style to each students specific needs and goals. In general, I am a very laidback and patient teacher. My students recieve clear and achievable goals at the end of each of their lessons to work on while they are practicing during the week. This enables students to be able to really see their own progress as the practice. I also believe in music lessons being an enjoyable experience for students so I include students in making the decision for what pieces they would like to learn. I really believe it's important for the student to be included in shaping the direction of lessons so that they have lessons that engage them and are enjoyable.
Instruments: Violin, Viola
Teaching Methods: Beginner students of mine will learn mostly by ear so that they can focus on building technical and aural/intonation skills (this includes learning fun songs by ear), and when they are ready I like to start my students with Suzuki and Mark O'Connor method books which gives a nice combination of standard and folk/fiddle tunes. Along with the pieces they learn, students will also learn scales and/or etudes that will continuously guide their technical advancement.
Teaching Styles: I am a very lively and fun teacher who is both stringent and patient with my students. I teach in order to help others grow. I consider myself a guide on one's journey into the world of music. My students must be ready to take chances, overcome obstacles, and soar towards success.
Instruments: Violin, Cello, Viola, Fiddle, Double Bass
Lessons are kept fun and tailored to the student's needs and skill level. We start with the basics and progress from there. I integrate theory and learning to read music into the lessons from the very beginning.

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
