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:
Teaching Methods: My intense love and dedication to the study and performance of music is reflected in both my teaching and guidance of all my students. Also, as a musician I demonstrate to my students how important it is to comprehend the true nature of performance in order to efficaciously communicate with your audience.
Teaching Styles: During the lesson time, I will teach Breathing Control Practice, Vocalization Practice, and Singing
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.
Teaching Methods: I like to start with the basics of breathing. Using the voice as an insturment, it is important that their "engine"- the energy behind what makes the voice work, is working efficiently. Without proper breath control it is difficult to grow the voice in the direction that one wants. After my students show an understanding of how proper breathing works we will begin to address vocal placement, for example, if there is a more nasal tone, getting the sound out of the nose and into the "mask", where the voice realy rings. All of the basics of proper posture are addressed early on, and vocal exercises are introduced based on the students' needs. From there we will choose repetoire, also based on the goals of the students and/or gaurdian. If the student is more interested in classical training I will introduce the Vaccai, which is an excellent practice book for students, developing pronounciation, breath control, and the students ear. Everything is tailored to the needs of the student.
Teaching Styles: 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, Drums, Orchestral Percussion
Teaching Methods: I love to show students how fun the world of music is. While showing students the fun aspect of music I teach them the essentials of what they need to learn to be succesful as a musician. If the students are having a good time learning then they'll be more inspired to be the best they can be on their instrument!
Teaching Styles: My teaching style is a mix between traditional, liberal, and fun. I make sure they know what they need to know while showing them a good time!
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.
