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:
For students that are just starting out, I use the Suzuki Method. This method includes initially learning by ear or listening, and learning to read notes later on. For children, parent involvement is also an essential aspect of the method, this allows the parent to be able to help their child during practice at home. I also focus on scales as one way to help improve technique using the Carl Flesch Scale Book for more advanced students.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice, Violin, Bass Guitar, Ukulele, Mandolin, Electric Guitar, Classical Guitar, Acoustic Guitar
Teaching Methods: I have used several methods and books for learning from Classical guitar methods to more popular methods like Mel Bay. I will find the right supplementary books or methods for each students learning desires. I teach Suzuki violin method and Alfred Piano and Bass instruction books. I teach music reading for all instruments and also work with Guitar, Bass and Ukulele tabs. I also figure out songs by ear and teach students how to do it as well. I have a spacious, fully equipped home studio and lounge area for parents. Everything is set-up for providing great lessons.
Teaching Styles: I love to teach and make taking music lessons fun, challenging and rewarding. I focus my lessons around Rhythm, Melody, Harmony and try to teach students to use their ear. I teach all styles and do my best to help the student get to the next level. I teach all ages from kids 5yrs old too adult students. Most student however, usually range from 8yrs. to teens with a few adults as well. I have taught many Home Schooled kids and kids with different learning abilities. I want all my student to have a sense of accomplishment so that they keep playing and enjoying music the way I do.
Instruments: Piano, Voice, Violin, Flute, Recorder
I want students to know their personal strengths, so I use lots of specific praise for both natural abilities and for things they've worked hard to achieve. In order to help students develop independent thinking skills, I ask as many questions as I can instead of just telling them how to do things. It’s crucial that my students to know how and what to practice, so I demonstrate and describe the most effective and efficient ways to develop musicianship. Then I write down what we’ve covered on an assignment sheet they can use as a reference at home. Finally, and most importantly, I want lessons to be fun for all of my students (and for me!), so I keep things moving in a friendly, relaxed way.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Violin, Cello, Viola, Trumpet, Trombone, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Drums, Recorder, Fiddle, Euphonium, French Horn, Tuba, Piccolo, Mallet Percussion, Orchestral Percussion, Oboe, Bassoon
Teaching Methods: Dr. Charles utilizes the best approach for students musical achievement. During his daily public service job, Dr. Charles teaches students ranging from ages 7-18. With this in mind, the best method is a method that allow students to grow musically while thinking critically.
Teaching Styles: Students taking lessons under the direction of Dr. Charles can expect to discuss theory and play instrument within the first 10 min of a session. Depending on the instrument, students may begin with warm-ups/rudimentary fundamentals. After warm-ups are completed, other lessons can range from etude practices, duets, scale memorization, tone developement, phrase awareness, plus many other elements that improves the students overall performance. In closing the lesson, students are given instructions that will be beneficial for the upcoming sessions.
Instruments: Piano, Violin, Viola
I believe my teaching style reflects the joy I find in teaching! I encourage active learning through games, activities and exercises that are age-appropriate, and I highly encourage many questions! I love to play duets and accompany during lessons so that my students experience the entirety of a composition and I insist on a varity of styles and genres, so that everyone is a well-rounded musician :-)

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
