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: Voice, Trumpet, Trombone, Bass Guitar, Euphonium, French Horn, Tuba
I create a hands on curriculum based on the students musical proficiency. Alongside this structured lesson plan, every student will receive training on proper practicing techniques which help build their sense of guidance, responsibility, and structure. Students will also receive training for embouchure and tone development as well as warm up etudes that cater to the students skill level. Music theory and terms will be infused within the lesson plans to ensure my student's proper use of signs and symbols.
Instruments: Piano, Voice, Saxophone, Organ, Synthesizer, Recorder, Oboe, English Horn
My teaching experience began shortly after college. I joined the US Army Band and immediately began teaching private lessons on the side of my band responsibilities. I have continued teaching private lessons, as well as master classes, and college level music and art courses for the past 25 years. I love teaching and focus on the need to practice consistently, while loving every note. If a student isn't having fun and loving the music he is playing, then I need to relook my methods of teaching. I encourage students to perform and share their own love of music often. I enjoy teaching musicians of all ages and levels of accomplishment.
I approach teaching in a way that is easily understandable to my students. As the voice is a very unique instrument, in which it is not as easy as showing someone how to press a knob or a key, I teaching using metaphors that are easy to understand. I am a classically trained vocalist with experience singing mulitple genres, and because I use my instrument weekly, performing throughout the country, I am always finding analogies and real-world experiences that help with what I share with my students. I love when my students reach an epiphany, when something clicks and they can apply the metaphors and analogies to their own uniqe instrument!
Instruments: Piano, Voice, Oboe
Teaching Methods: I teach according to what each student wants and needs. For Beginners, I choose either Faber, Music for Mozarts, or Alfred materials. For my older students, it can vary through repertoire, lead sheets or music theory chords. My vocal students each have their own vocal exercises catered to their voice and we also work on repertoire to engage different elements of their voice. Although I am very easy going, my actions and methods for teaching are firm. We all can have fun, just as long as we are making progress.
Teaching Styles: Ali loves to share her passion of music to the world and especially through her students. She loves to share new ideas and nuances along with the basics and fundamentals of technique.With each student's goals in mind, Ali creates a curriculum based on their wants and needs. Although practice can be boring for the student, asking a student to pick at least one song to work on can help the student and the teacher have fun and learn at the same time. After a few months, not only will her students have fun, but they will learn how to be a better person and musician.
As a teacher, nothing is more rewarding than seeing a student excited about their progress! Studying voice is process. It is my job to lead and guide each student at his or her own pace. I push students to their full potential, while providing positive reinforcement and setting realistic goals. Singing is very personal, and can even be frightening for new students. I develop trusting relationships with my students, so they are free to express themselves and push themselves beyond what they even dreamed possible!

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
