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, Cello, Viola, Mandolin, Electric Violin, Fiddle, Double Bass
Teaching Methods: For beginning students in any genre, I begin with learning songs. Classical, jazz, bluegrass, and rock are more easily understood when you spend time playing the music with someone else. Repertoire is chosen with the understanding that fundamentals are key to life long participation and students find positive success when they are able to then share a completed work with their friends and family (think holiday get-togethers!) For young intermediate to advanced players, the philosophy of building one's repertoire continues with the added focus on musical understanding. Not just listening, but hearing music is essential to growth and the student will play developmentally appropriate music to facilitate that goal. For adult musicians, the goals are similar but I open the floor up to music that inspires that student, music that makes them want to practice every day and share with others.
Teaching Styles: My goal is to make life long music participants and so therefore the aim of the lessons will be to create possitive acheivements that are challenging yet entirely attainable. I try to understand the student personally so that I can better create a reward system that engenders trust and hard work in each student.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice, Violin, Cello, Viola, Flute, Drums, Bass Guitar, Organ, Synthesizer, Harmonica, Fiddle, Latin Percussion
Teaching Methods: German, Italian, Spanish, American and Suzuki Methods. Currently I am creating a new method for musical composition.
Teaching Styles: I love teaching music is my passion, I try to give a free way of learning to each student where they will feel the music as a wonderful art of life, the progress will be something quite natural as I approach them into a good technique combining their own personal inspiration, I love to teach some composition too, so they will develop their creativity in their own work.
Instruments: Violin, Viola
Teaching Methods: For beginner students, I start with Hal Leonard's "Essential Elements for Strings" Book 1. This book is not only great for learning the fundamentals of the instrument (such as the names of the parts of the instrument, how to hold the instrument, etc.) but it also the best book I have found to teach beginning students how to read music on the violin and viola. For more advanced students, I like to stick with a formula of three things: scales (two-three octaves), an etude (a piece used to focus on a specific technique), and solo repertoire. All students will also learn proper warm-up and cool-down methods, such as stretching and breathing techniques.
Teaching Styles: It is extremely important to me that every student benefits from his or her own personally tailored lesson. This means that there is no "cut and paste" lesson plan to use with each student. Once I get to know the student, I will be able to judge their level of playing ability, their ability to read music, how good their posture is, how good their hand position is, etc. It is also important to me to get to know the student's personality, so that when teaching, I can help make the student feel as comfortable as possible during the lesson. Then, we must determine what the student wants to learn, and figure out the best way to about learning whatever that may be. Finally, we will determine the student's short-term and long-term goals and keep track of these in a weekly planner or notebook.
Instruments: Violin, Flute
Teaching Methods: Suzuki method. Experienced with teaching popular music and jazz genres also
Teaching Styles: Laid back yet structured. Emphasis on consistency of practice.
Instruments: Piano, Voice, Violin
Teaching Methods: For beginning students, I teach them the basics first, and then simple and fun pieces that they can master. For intermediate students, I start them on method books and more advanced techniques. With advanced students, I help them refine their playing and personalize each piece that they learn.
Teaching Styles: I first talk with my students to figure out their goals. Once a reasonable goal has been agreed upon, I enthusiastically help them jump right into playing their instrument. By breaking up portions of the lesson with review of simpler pieces, I encourage my students to play fun and simpler things as well, so that they do not beocme frustrated. I always bring my positive attitude to each lesson, and have the students write down what to work on after each lesson.
Don't just take our word for it. We hold the highest possible A+ rating from the nations foremost online reliability source: The BBB. Check out our A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau.
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
