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, Violin
Teaching Methods: I teach both violin and piano on beginner to advanced levels. For piano I use Bastien books and for violin I start students with Strictly Strings. As they progress I introduce other pieces and books as appropriate. For violin I come from a Galamian and Dorothy Delay background. I am flexible with teaching styles but generally try to pick music and methods that interest the student. I am a travelling teacher and prefer teaching in students' homes and online.
Teaching Styles: I love to share my passion for music with my students and encourage them to have a lifelong appreciation for music. Whether they aspire to be a concert soloist or keep it as a hobby, I try my best to help them discover their own love for music. I use positive reinforcement and am strict when it comes to practicing and homework.
Instruments: Piano, Violin, Cello, Viola, Electric Violin, Fiddle, Double Bass
Teaching Methods: I begin with developing sheet music literacy in my students right off the bat if they have no experience in reading music. I believe music literacy is one of the most important aspects of learning an instrument. I've always said, "not being able to read sheet music is like trying to be a writer who can't read, it makes no sense". I also begin with teaching proper form. Meaning how to hold the instrument and how to use proper technique. I also love teaching my students through music they like and will be motivated to learn. Music is supposed to be fun, and I do anything for my students so I can ensure that learning their instruments will be fun.
Teaching Styles: I believe each student is different. Therefor, lessons should differ depending on each students particular needs, taste in music, and age. I would never treat an adult student like I would a young student and vice versa. I always try to set weekly goals with each of my students in order for them to have something to work towards on a consistent basis. If my students don't reach their weekly goal I simply have a little bit of a review with them in the beginning of the lesson and then proceed with that weeks work. I do this to ensure that their skill level and understanding of music is constantly progressing, not regressing.
Instruments: Piano, Voice, Violin, Cello, Viola
Teaching Methods: I like to use a common sense approach with a foundation in music theory to develop the whole musician. I will encourage note reading but will give harmonic context for the singer or keyboardist looking to improve versatility.
Teaching Styles: I will focus on your musical passion and help you set goals based on the musician you would like to be. I will likely use a method book for piano or strings while voice students will develop repertoire from a variety of sources. I can help you learn to sing by reading music or by rote. I will help you seek opportunities for performance to build your confidence and experience.
Instruments: Piano, Violin, Viola
Teaching Methods: My principles of pedagogy are based on many years of performing and teaching, I have crafted my own method, especially for children. This method help to train ears while teaching proper posture and technique, which leads to correct concentration and reflection. During my lessons I always demonstrate my playing. The ultimate goal is to perform beautiful music. For older students and adults I am using professional European methods and also the Suzuki method.
Teaching Styles: I motivate my students by being interactive. With children who are new to music, I use my personal method, which is characterized by providing knowledge while playing interactive games, which helps the children grasp music-related issues. With the older students, I try to inspire them by playing duets, accompanying them, and placing emphasis on a variety of repertoire. Some of them might even perform on the stage in the small recitals prepared by myself every year.
Instruments: Violin, Cello, Flute
Teaching Methods: My approach to teaching varies with the age level of each student. With younger students, imitation is often one of the best methods of learning and I prefer the Suzuki method for students up to age 8, especially with strings. For older children and adults, learning music notation and basic music theory for a full understanding of musical language are more important to get them to the level where they can learn any music that they want to play for fun. For students who wish to excel in their school band, a more practical approach with technique specific warm-ups and exercises seems to be the best in general.
Teaching Styles: I try to have a very positive approach to teaching. I believe that if a student is told what they are doing wrong constantly, they will feel like they aren't good enough for the instrument, or they will lose interest. I instead focus on telling them what they are doing right, and offer suggestions on what they need to improve on.

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
