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: Guitar, Voice, Acoustic Guitar
I typically create individualized plans for my vocal students, depending on their level. I focus on technique and ease of singing with proper breathing for support. I do visualization techniques to help achieve an increased range without strain. I incorporate music the student is interested in to maintain their interest and love of music. I choose pieces of music that are appropriate for their level, yet challenging enough to keep them always improving. With my guitar students, I start with proper technique of holding the guitar and pick. I then teach the names of notes and strings. I use the Alfred book to help my students to learn how to read. I also teach songs the student is interested in learning to keep them excited about music.
Teaching Methods: Traditional classical method
Teaching Styles: I like to make lessons fun and engaging in addition to being educational.
Instruments: Piano, Voice, Clarinet, Accordion
Teaching Methods: PIANO. Thompson, Schaum, Hanon, Alfred, Carnegie Hall Achievement Program, Trinity Guildhall, ABRSM.
Teaching Styles: PIANO. I make sure my students are technically grounded in scales, chords, arpeggios, good fingering and hand position, posture, pedalling, etc . . . The degree to which we practice technical exercises depends on the student's goals and program course. If enrolled in one of the assessment programs such as Carnegie Hall or Trinity Guildhall technical skills are practiced more at each lesson. Although I use lesson books with assigned pieces each week, I also think it is important for the student to work on pieces they choose themselves. I incorporate this at all levels of playing. It is important for a musican to have desire to play and a connection to their music. I am passionate about my music and my students can't help but be the same. I do expect excellence and dedication from my students, so regular practice is a must! VOICE. I usually spend the first 15 minutes of the lesson working on technical exercises to improve breath support, placement/resonance, jaw/tongue/lip position, flexibility, range, etc . . . and the the remainder of the lesson is spent working on chosen repertoire. For this reason, I do not teach 30 minute voice lessons. Minimum 45 minutes.
I've been working with children long before I chose my major and started college. Singing was always a big part of my "play". I studied elementary education but even when I was in the general classroom I used music. I enjoyed making up songs to help different skills and ideas stick. For the past 3 years I have been teaching music. I have taught Preschool up to 8th grade. I've also worked with high school age students in a worship band capacity at my church. My favorite part about teaching music is the look on a student's face when something finally clicks. The most important part of my music classes is that my students are having fun as they're learning. I want them to feel safe and comfortable, especially in making mistakes. Mistakes are a big part of the learning process, especially when you're working with something as tricky as your voice. If a student is not comfortable putting themselves out there it's going to be much harder to reach their full potential.
All of my students work on tried and true Bel Canto and Swedish techniques. I will give each student special vocal exercises to work on at home. I generally assign songs from The 24 Italian Songs and Arias songbook and I use Musical Theater Anthologies. Some of my more advanced High School students work on Opera arias.

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
