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, Keyboard, Djembe, Acoustic Guitar
Going from singing for fun, to performing professionally, to music therapy has only intensified my passion for helping others. Teaching others is such a unique experience, especially when when it involves music. I believe teaching is at its best when the teacher her/himself discovers something new as well. I always include a strong understanding of vocal padagogy; vocal health; piano pedagogy; Classical, pop, musical theatre; stage performance; basic music theory and solfedge. Teaching in a comfortable setting is very important to me as well.
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 Methods: First and foremost, having fun is the most important aspect of these lessons. If the student really enjoys singing, learning, and developing their gift, we will have a ball. I am mostly self-taught when it comes to singing, and in my lessons I strictly enforce the use of the student's ears. I found that the ears are a VERY important factor when it comes to music in general. When your ears make that initial connection to music, and then the rest to follow will positively set the students well on their way for musical greatness. For all my students, in order to get a sense of where they are musically, I ask for a performance of a song that best showcases their abilities. From there, I will know exactly what needs work, what their strengths are, and what to introduce to their repertoire. From the first encounter, I will then develop a lesson plan that will ensure success from the willing student.
Teaching Styles: I want to see my students grow. I want to not only see their growth in their gifts, but also in their passion for music. Ear training is highly used in my methods, as it really is an important factor for ultimate musicality. I am committed to making voices as dynamic and unique as possible. I want to encourage them through their accomplishments, as well as their downfalls because music students need it. Being an exceptional musician requires work, drive, patience, passion, inspiration, and a love for music. I want to be there to reinforce the already burning desire that my students have.
Teaching Methods: Every student is different, especially when it comes to vocal training, so I tailor my lesson plans according to each individual student's ability and needs. I begin with the basics of breath control and work to help each student find their natural voice. I use different vocal exercises to help improve tone and range and then incorporate what we've learned from those exercises into singing songs. We'll work on musicianship and the acting of your songs and strive toward a polished and engaged performance.
Teaching Styles: My goal in teaching is to make the student feel relaxed and at ease and therefore open to trying new ideas. I help them set realistic goals and acknowledge their accomplishments along the way, making them more eager to practice and learn. I love seeing that spark when an idea clicks and the student finally understands a concept or achieves a goal. There's no better feeling than helping a student move from one level to the next.
Instruments: Piano, Voice
Teaching Methods: I work with a variety of learning methods including Hal Leonard, John Thompson, Bastien, Alfred, Hanon, Czerny and Faber. I select methodology and solo repertoire to best improve my students technique while at the same time keeping their interest and enthusiasm. I also encourage music compostition, arranging and improvisation to those students who express an interest and desire to learn who to write and compose music.
Teaching Styles: I base my teaching style on the individual student and how they learn. Some students learn more by rote, others learn more by oral and others learn more by understanding theory. I always incorporate proper technique so that the student developes as quickly as 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
