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: Piano, Voice
Teaching Methods: For voice I like to break down lesson times into two "half" sections. The first is warm-up and technique. I teach 3-5 simple exercises aimed at improving quality, dynamic range, and vocal flexibility. For older students I can add difficulty to these exercises over time to further improve the instrument. The second section would be devoted to repertoire. I allow students to bring in pieces they would like to sing, as well as material I think is right for their voice type. For beginner piano I usually start with Hal Leonard's Essential Elements. At this stage it's important to teach not only technique, but also general music. When a student reaches a proficient level of fundamentals I will assign simple solo repertoire.
Teaching Styles: I believe one of the most rewarding feelings is seeing a student progress in talent and passion for music. I enjoy getting to know all of my students and find out what drives them, what their goals are and aid in achieving them. I have an infectious smile, broad knowledge, strong work ethic and positive attitude which will foster a lifelong enjoyment of the arts. I look forward to every lesson and in continuing our musical journey!
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice, Drums, Bass Guitar, Ukulele, Electric Guitar, Classical Guitar, Acoustic Guitar
Teaching Methods: For beginning students who are children, I typically start with simple chords and teach them a few fun songs. If the student is interested in learning how to read music, I will use Hal Leonard's Essential Elements. Once the student has progressed to have a grasp of the fundamentals, I will begin to introduce solo repertoire appropriate for their first recital performance if they are interested in performing live. For adults, I like to find out what they are most interested in, whether it is a specific genre, (jazz/classical) or if they are more interested in learning songs (classic rock/pop/etc.) or songwriting. I always make sure that the lesson is both engaging and fun to ensure that the student is receiving the most out of it.
Teaching Styles: I love seeing my students develop a passion for music! That is why I make sure each student progresses at their own pace by setting realistic goals for each lesson. I always acknowledge a student when they practice very hard and ask great questions. By understanding what the student wants out of the lesson, I can successfully tailor my instruction to their wants and needs.
NYU Vocal Pedagoy Methods
I have been told by my students that am as much a coach as I am an instructor. I make lessons fun and informative. I am always respectful and understand that students progress at different speeds. After 3 months with me students can expect to have better pitch, better breath control and more confidence all round. I use my own curriculum and record each student to CD. This means the student can take the lesson home and continue the learning process there.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice, Violin, Viola, Trumpet, Trombone, Flute, Clarinet, Drums, Organ, Synthesizer, Ukulele, Recorder
For beginning students, I incorporate music that is meaningful to the student while also building a strong technical foundation. For advanced students, I work with the students on a balance of fun and challenging repetoire that will push the student to meet their performance goals.

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
