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, Drums, Bass Guitar
Teaching Methods: My approach varies depending on the student's skill level and chosen instrument, but for beginners I always try to get them familiarized with their instrument: teaching them the basics of reading music and how to navigate the different keys (or strings, etc.). From there I start teaching various musical concepts, the rudiments of music theory, and begin introducing them to different styles of music. When the student is advanced enough, I start having them run through my own custom designed technique and skill drills, and have them start selecting music that they would like to perform on their own. Once the student is comfortable with solo play, I gear lessons towards learning how to play in a group, soloing and improv, songwriting, forming a band, and making your own album. I use a combination of standard techinique manuals and my own teaching material that I feel covers some of the holes left by the books that are out on the market.
Teaching Styles: The most satisfying moment as a teacher is when a student finally "gets it", and for students, I find that lessons are the most fun when the student feels capable and not overwhelmed. I like to challenge my students and encourage them to exceed even their own expectations of their abilities. With this in mind, my overall teaching philosophy emphasizes gaining technical mastery over the student's chosen instrument, strong music reading and theory skills, along with creativity and improvisation to turn them into well rounded players who can hold their own in just about any music setting from the stage to the studio.
Teaching Methods: My teaching philosophy is that I meet each student at the level of their need and help them achieve the level of their desire. I have been a classroom teacher for a number of years and therefore have learned the value of planning and differentiation of instruction.
Teaching Styles: My style of instruction is centered around encouragement and motivation. I believe that it is my calling to help each individual student realize their dream.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice, Bass Guitar
Teaching Methods: In the past, I have taught using books, and warm-up exercises, and while I still plan on using the exercises, I'm intending on adding movement activities that I feel would be more enjoyable, especially for the younger students.
Teaching Styles: I like to start with warm-up exercises and activities to get your blood flowing, and then we dive right into the lesson. It varies depending on the instrument that I am teaching. For instance, for a piano lesson, I might start with the scale of the key of the song that we would be working on for that lesson. If I'm teaching voice, I always start with vocal warm-ups, but often times I add movement and breathing exercises as well. I base my lessons off of what the students want to learn. This way they can get the most out of their lesson and they won't be bored.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice, Drums, Bass Guitar, Synthesizer, Accordion, Harmonica, Lap Steel Guitar, Banjo, Ukulele, Mandolin, Mallet Percussion, Orchestral Percussion
Teaching Methods: As far as books go, I prefer the Hal Leonard method, especially for beginner musicians. I combine visual, audio and kinesthetic learning methods to tailor to anyone's needs. After the basics are taught or they're already learned, I assess the student's level and teach the student what they wish to learn to the best of my ability.

Teaching Methods: My approach is very physical...I show students how to use their whole bodies to support their voices.
Teaching Styles: I try to measure what works best for the student's personality...they are the one paying!

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
