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: My approach to lessons differs significantly from student to student. After initial skills and vocal health assessments, I choose repertoire for them bases upon their abillities, age, and musical interests. While I think that vocalises and technical exercises are important to the learning process, I believe it is essential for students to be singing music that they are passionate about at all times. In this way, they can learn to love the process of improving. I supplement lessons with vocalises, either taught to me through previous teachers or from books by pedagogues such as Vaccai, Siebel, Marchesi, etc., as I see necessary.
Teaching Styles: My goal as a teacher is to show students the joys of singing, while instructing them how to be technically proficient and vocally healthy. Through the process, I encourage singers to appreciate what their strengths are and to recognize their weaknesses as challenges. I like to focus on one technical issue at a time, building upon the current strengths without overwhelming the singers. In this way, they can learn to love the process of improving. In essence, I drive my students to improve and set attainable goals so that they can approach singing in a smart, healthy, and happy way.
Instruments: Piano, Voice
Teaching Methods: For students of voice, my curriculum will adjust depending on the needs of the student, be it pitch, rhythm, breath, etc. I use many different vocal exercises and songs to help with whatever the student needs to work on. For piano, I like to use the Faber books. I believe these have a good balance of technique and repertoire so the student does not get bored just playing scales, and hopefully maintains or strenghtens their interest in the instrument.
Teaching Styles: I try to set achieveable goals for the student each week, so they have something to work towads before the next time we meet. I like to have a fun and relaxed atmospher in the studio and encourage my students to their fullest potential and beyond. I want to see them succeed and it gives me great pleasure to see them tackle their musical obstacles.
My teaching style is based on the goals of the student. If you are thinking about college or conservatory... to major in voice to prepare a college audition of appropriate literature that will enhance your audition and your likelihood of acceptance at the college or conservatory of your choice. If you are a college student... I provide university level training for college students. If you require training including technique, repertoire, and performance, with the goal of a professional career.

I have been an active music teacher now for over 3 years. However, teaching is not the only thing I do. I am constantly working on music of all styles with all walks of life. I am currently producing dozens of artists from all around the country out of my home studio. I am also in several gigging bands. Playing live shows is the ultimate reward of being a musician and I like to do it as much as possible. I have seen so much on and off the road that I feel I have something to offer everyone! I truly have a deep passion for sharing the gift of music!
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice, Clarinet, Keyboard, Acoustic Guitar
I begin teaching my beginner students to locate notes on the piano/guitar and have them practice basic exercises to establish muscle memory. If there are any songs in particular that my student wants to learn, then I find the sheet music and begin working on them. I use a separate homework notebook that can have assignments and practice strategies for my stuedents to study during the week. When I teach adults, I like to get to know what their style is and what they are mostly interested in learning. I teach them proper technique and focus on what they want to learn. I keep each lesson fun and interesting and offer stickers to my younger students.

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
