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, 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, 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: 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, Viola
Teaching Methods: I use different methods according to the age, my main interest is to help the student love the music and the rest is just up to time and work.
Teaching Styles: The way I approach teaching is very much a mix between tradition and improvisation. Every single student is different so I try to tap in to their personality and use that to help them.
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.
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
