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:
Teaching Methods: I always start by assesing the students muscial interests, and we begin to discuss the fundamentals of singing depending on the students background. I encourage students to take notes or record lessons or both! For younger students I provide assignment sheets to help then stay on track between lessons. I encourage students to practice 2-3 times a week and we tailor together what that studen practice will look like. Sometimes I suggest students do no more than listening and 20 minutes of concentrated practice, and with more advance students we discuss the expectations to move forward at a reasonable pace.I try to be as flexible as possible with repertoire because I want you to like what you are singing!
Teaching Styles: I teach voice like a sport. We discuss what your body is doing and perhaps why and what we can do to set the best physcial enviroment for your best sound. Students and I work together on large goals and each week I try to help students find that weeks goal to get then closer to the sound they want. I am a very open person and most students find lessons to be fun and challenging.
Instruments: Piano, Voice
I started teaching in 2008 and my studio at its maximum capacity was 30 students - a large portion with whom I worked consistently for 3 years until I decided pursue graduate school. While at UNL I taught applied voice and diction, and literature classes as a teaching assistant. Organizing voice classes, studio recitals, and theatrical coachings are resources I have used and will continue to use in the studio to develop a student's full performance potential. These resources help prepare students for auditions, competitions and performances.
Instruments: Piano, Voice, Flute
For beginning students, I generally work with whichever method book they are using in their school music classes and suppliment some of my own materials as well. For more advanced students, I introduce more solo repertoire, both classical and popular for them perform. As for adults, I try to find music that interests them to provide more motivation to practice.
Instruments: Piano, Voice, Trumpet, Trombone, Euphonium, French Horn, Tuba
My philosophy in teaching is that a good understanding of the foundation of music and the instrument will lead to self sufficiency in learning. I aim to teach my students not just to be dependant on myself as the instructor, but to be able to problem solve and learn on their own if they run into a question and an instructor is unavailable. I regularly practice sight reading with my students and keep them critically thinking about their music and what makes it up. Once I feel that the student is at a level to make critical decisions about the music they're making I will ask them to make their own interpretations of the music and help them along depending on style and appropriateness.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice
I use a combination if Orff, Kodaly, Dalcrose and Suzuki.

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
