Lessons are fun!  My philosophy is that students should have music in their lives and benefit from the lessons they take now for years to come.  Learning to play a musical instrument will help students with math skills, study habits, and develop a skill that will last for a lifetime. After 3 months students will understand the fundamentals of their string instrument or voice, know how to care for their instrument, warm up properly, be able to read and play/sing introductory passages.  After 6 months the student will have learned basic music theory, how to read music, and have advanced through playing/singing multiple songs. I have a violin and viola that I bring to assist in teaching lessons.    I expect that the students provide an instrument and their books.  A keyboard or piano is essential for voice students for vocalization, and an ipad or tablet keyboard works great.  A student need not know how to play piano in order to take voice lessons.

For each instrument the lessons begins with warm ups followed by review of previous lessons and assignment of new lessons depending on progress. I will spend the student according to their abilities. My goal is that the student have an understanding of what that particular lesson was seeking to accomplish. For example, learning to read notes or learning a certain fingering technique.

I am a musician, composer, teacher and author. I graduated from the NYC "Fame School"- Fiorello H. LaGuardia HS of Music and Art. I studied music theory and composition at Mannes Conservatory, NYC and received a BA as a Music Major from Aaron Copland School of Music/Queens College/CUNY. I took Graduate courses studying Special Ed/Music Therapy at Lehman College, NY. After in depth research with creating highly motivational music programs for all ages as well as for children that had ADD, Autism, or Aspergers, I was awarded a grant from the Grammy's to write a book.  I have traveled to Europe and the far east teaching creative music workshops. I have been teaching beginner, intermediate and beginner-advanced piano and vocal coaching for 25 years. Teaching music is a way of life. I believe we are all creative individuals. The key is to express ourselves fully through music and enjoy the journey as we learn and grow in our musical expression.

I use the teaching method as previously described, and try to tailor my style for each student. Everyone learns, practices, and progresses uniquely -- so it's part of MY job to figure out the best approach to help each of my students. My experience in both the civilian and military music communities has given me a very open-minded but direct approach to WHAT you should learn, and HOW FAST you should be able to progress each individual student.   Just ask how my style may assist you personally, or ask any questions that you may have.  I've been a lifetime musician since I was young, and love finding unique and fun ways to motivate my students.  I've worked with most styles of music before, and arranged music for many as well, so I'm very comfortable helping students with a variety of disciplines and interests.

 I love teaching and connecting on a personal level with my students. My singing experience dates back to high school where I sang in concert choirs as well as an award winning jazz ensemble. From there I attended Orange Coast College, where I studied music theory, jazz and pop vocals. I trained privately for 5 years with the wonderful Nadia Smelser, and to this day impart to my students her techniques and methodologies. Currently, I sing in a big band swing trio called The Harmonettes. We perform locally and throughout the state of California. I perform with various musicians and ensembles, and have served for many years as part of the music ministry at my church. I've had the privilege of being part of the vocal teaching team for our gospel choir, as well as serving on the worship team, teaching introductory voice classes, conducting the children's Christmas choir, and other aspects of the arts ministry

Types of Clarinets

...most likely why they’ve become obsolete: they’re not practical. Somehow the A clarinet made it through the cracks.     Other Clarinets: There are other “clarinets” in existence. The chalumeau was the clarinet’s predecessor. There are diatonic instruments similar to the clarinet, as well as an experimental quarter-tone clarinet. EWI: Wind synthesizers, such as the EWI, in addition to others, are not clarinets.

...size, since it reaches between 36 and 40 inches high and only 57.5 inches wide. Some people may argue that it’s a good beginning instrument because the price won’t put you in a financial hole, and that’s true. Unfortunately, you get what you pay for. And low price, in this case, does mean low quality, which is why they were invented – to provide an affordable acoustic piano type.

Minimization of risk Thankfully, most of the things we will talk about just happen to do all three at once! We’ll begin with:   At what angle should my drums and cymbals be? Aside from the bass drum (the angle of which is inherently fixed), this is a very important consideration, and one which all too frequently is not addressed early enough. It is very common for the beginning drummer to have her toms- and even her snare- ... Read More

...down by half notes until you’ve reached as low as you can play. Then return to the note you started on and work your way upward instead, stopping on each new note for as long as needed to find a clear, focused tone.   Working on Intervals When the formation of your embouchure starts to become second nature while moving up and down the scale, you’ll want to start increasing the interval, or distance between the notes, as you practice. Focus on making the transition from one note to another as smooth as possible. Though your embouchure will change slightly, especially ... Read More

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.
