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, Guitar, Voice, Mallet Percussion
Teaching Methods: It's important to cultivate a student's musical knowledge by building upon their current foundation. Similar to the way children learn a language, music students of all ages should start by listening and singing/playing before learning to read and even write. Combining this natural approach with a focus on how and why to develop good technique helps students get the results they're looking for.
Teaching Styles: I help my students develop their own practice habits that help them to make music a practical part of their everyday life. It's important that students use healthy, smart habits from the beginning to avoid issues that can slow down development. The most important part of learning music is keeping it fresh and enjoying the process.
Instruments: Piano, Voice, Trumpet, Trombone, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Drums, Euphonium, French Horn, Tuba, Piccolo, Mallet Percussion
Teaching Methods: I've learn that the most important part of educating my students is to teach to their learning style and ability while giving them some strong encouragement and guidance. I first start with an assements of where the students skills are and their mindset. I try to findout what they want to due and what they like to due. Sometimes students dont truly know. This is important for me because it sets the foundation for how the lessons will be planned out week to week. My style of teaching has improved my students grades in other academic class while improving there musical skills. They learn good study skills and habits under me that are used in other classes.
Teaching Styles: I am a nurturer. I teach with caring, passion and support of all my students. It's not just enough show students how to play a note or read a rhythm, but how to use that knowledge in everyday life. I like to build a positive working relationship with my students. This way they look forward to their lesson, not only because they are comfortable around me, but because they are growing and learning about music and it's relationship to life.
Instruments: Voice, Trumpet, Clarinet
Teaching Methods: As a musician, it is important to refine performance, technique, and style. I like to find out what the student's goal or difficulty is in each of those categories. Then we plan a recital usually 4-6 months away. I ask the student to choose 4-5 songs that they enjoy and that feel would be a feat to perform. I choose 1 song that I think would challenge them in each of the musician categories. Then we work to prepare the 5-6 songs for the recital. The idea is to have an attainable goal to achieve within a certain amount of time. This requires the student to create succesful practice habits outside of lessons and the recital gives real world experience. For students I have had for more than a year, each recital showcases their improvement.
Teaching Styles: In learning music, it is very important for students to have the freedom to explore and cultivate their own artistry. It is my job to guide their development with proper technique and discipline. When first meeting a student, I learn what their interests are and meet them at their level. Then I devise a strategy based on who they already are as a musician that will help them to advance.
Teaching Methods: I am a firm believer that every student learns differently. As such, I specifically cater each of my lessons to my students individual needs and goals. I like to discuss my students wishes and interests from the start, so we can work together to fulfill their goals and wishes while maintaining healthy production. Assignments and lessons are based on each student's level, age, and style interests; I highly believe that students learn best when they are interested and ENJOYING what they are working on!
Teaching Styles: I incorporate many techniques into my teaching including physiology, anatomy, mental and emotional metaphors and analogies, kinesthetic feedback, and Alexander technique among many others. I would describe my teaching style as 'unusual, but highly effective'! Let's stop using broad meaningless terms to describe singing; let us instead find natural, beautiful sounds that give us more freedom to enjoy the process instead of more things to think about 'doing' correctly! Jump on my bandwagon- let's become better singers AND have FUN doing it!
Instruments: Piano, Voice
Teaching Methods: There are typically three books that I like to start children off with which include Piano Party, Music for Little Mozart’s, and My First Piano Adventure which are designed for children ages 4-11 years old. These books help children to understand the basics of rhythm, music theory, and activities associated with the two. I generally like to begin my teenage to adult students with the All in One Adult Course series which consists of three levels from easy to beginner intermediate and also combines a mixture of classical and modern music. I also like to incorporate the Brown's Scale book in with my curriculum which ranges from basic scales (major) and (minor) of all 24 keys to arppegiated scales and conceptualizing double thirds.
Teaching Styles: I like to start out with a basic curriculum and adjust according to how quickly the student absorbs information. Through my experience as a piano instructor and former music student, I understand that everyone learns at a different pace and has different backgrounds of experience which I fell will make the teacher student relationship unique. Depending on the speed of understanding, I present more challenges through various activities, technical exercises, and individual performances for peers to showcase what has been learned. I also enjoy playing side by side with the student to help build confidence.

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
