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, Guitar, Voice, Violin
Teaching Methods: My philosophy is if it isn't fun; nobody wants to do it. My method of teaching provides simple psycology in making praticing fun. The piano needs to be praticed every day if the student wants to progress! For Children I teach pop and classical piano, where as adults I try to find out why they want to play and what style of music they would like to play. Many adults don't desire to be a concert pianist but, If you'd like to play for fun; maybe play at a party to entertain your guests and you would like to play popular music; there's a class specialized for that.
Teaching Styles: My teaching style requires a lot of patience, of which provides the student to advance at their own pace and find their own creativity. I ask that parents trust me in the journey, it is very unlikely to get someone playing professionally overnight. But with patience and hard work and commitment we can get very far. I evaulate the student within the first few months to find what hidden talent they may have and use it to our advantage.
Instruments: Piano, Violin, Cello
Teaching Methods: Will utilize a blended approach with parts of all major methods being blended.
Teaching Styles: I will help foster excitement with the music styles that the student wants and tailer my teaching using what is preferred. I do not take the lazy way of teaching straight out of a book cover to cover.
Instruments: Violin, Viola
Teaching Methods: My teaching methods depend on the level of the student. I began as a Suzuki student when I was younger and often teach beginners using that method, but I am continually researching other methods to help round out my teaching. With intermediate and advanced students I introduce scale studies , etudes, and a piece that is appropriate for their level. There are a wide breadth of scale studies, etudes, and I strive to pick those that best fit the student’s needs.
Teaching Styles: I love teaching the violin, because of what it can teach students of all ages. When I teach students, I strive to shape them not only as musicians, but as overall people. Whether a student is young or old, violin lessons can benefit them in a variety of ways. As a musician, they will develop a keener musical ear, the ability to read music at different levels, the aptitude to perform for groups of people, a strong sense of rhythm, effective practice techniques, and an overall love for the therapeutic influence music has. As a person, they will develop discipline in achieving goals, self-motivation, consistent vigilance in developing new skills, and the chance to explore their own personal creativity. From my own experience, music has not only brought happiness to my life, but has helped me excel in all of my endeavors educationally and occupationally.
Instruments: Piano, Voice, Violin, Cello
Teaching Methods: I look at a students ability to read music first to determine what kind of music they should be working on. I teach students on an individual basis in order to quickly help them improve.
Teaching Styles: I expect my students to come into their lessons with a notebook and pencil so that they can write down what happens during the lessons. This is how they look back and reflect during their inmdividual practice.
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.
