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, Voice, Flute
Teaching Methods: My teaching methods depend a lot on the student's ability. I believe that the only person who would stop you from pursuing your dreams is yourself. If there is a passion in you that constantly lives, you can achieve a lot. I have experience teaching adults and children, including children with special needs.
Teaching Styles: Nothing is more important than seeing my student's progress and development. I encourage persistance and self-discipline. By finding out what inspires the student, I can succesfully tailor my instruction to their needs.
Instruments: Piano, Voice, Trumpet, Trombone, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Drums, Euphonium, French Horn, Tuba, Mallet Percussion, Oboe, Bassoon, English Horn
Teaching Methods: My beginning students usually start with Hal Leonards Essential Elements. Once my student is able to grasp basic fundamentals and a healthy proper tone, I will then be able to incorporate solo repertoire for future recitals and contests. For adults, I will find out what interests my students and coordinate my lessons accordingly to keep the lesson engaging and fun.
Teaching Styles: I am dedicated, persistent, and reliable. I am willing to learn and keep learning for the advancement of myself and my students. A well-rounded appreciation for music as well as critical listening and ear-training skills will be taught. I also maintain a pretty fast paced lesson enabling the student to have plenty of practice material, tasks to accomplish, and goals to meet. I will record the student's progress electronically so that the student may better understand and realize their progression. I want to inspire my students through my positive influence and encouragement through each lesson of musical discovery.
Instruments: Piano, Voice, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet
Teaching Methods: For piano students, I like to use the Alfred courses. This method is great because they have courses of study for all ages and levels, and students can progress through several courses throughout their study. For flute/clarinet students, I like to start with either hal Leonard's Essential Elements or the Rubank methods books. Once students have moved beyond the basics, I like to introduce solo repertoire that is appropriate for their level. I will also pair the solo material with technique exercises designed to solidify their fingerings, scales, rhythm reading, etc, that will enhance their ability to play their solo pieces.
Teaching Styles: I like to have a balance in my lessons between fun and challenge. I do this by setting realistic goals each week for my students, dependent on their level of perfomance and the pace that they are progressing. Not everyone will progress at the same pace, and I feel that it is more important for a student to master a particular lesson than to move quickly through the lesson book. I want my students to be able to experience the satisfaction that comes from working hard at something. My ultimate goal is to not only foster a love and appreciation of music in my students, but also to develop a strong work ethic and sense of accomplishment.
Teaching Methods: My philosophy on singing is that anybody can sing well. Whether you are born a natural lyricist or tone deaf, anybody can improve with enough practice. Everyone learns in a different method, and I am patient enough to learn the style of every student and help them reach their potential in any way possible.
Teaching Styles: Vocalists are musicians, therefore it is important to learn more than just how to sing. My students will learn how to read music (sight sing), as well as hear intervals and keys. This musical theory teaching goes hand in hand with my lessons and only helps the individual's singing technique.
Instruments: Piano, Voice
Teaching Methods: VOICE: Depending on what track each student would like to focus on, the repertoire and methods will vary. I always try to find out the student is interested in and will guide my instruction and supplement with other repertoire. These are just a handful of the resources that I use in lessons: Musical Theatre- Singer's Musical Theatre Anthology (Hal Leonard), Kids' Musical Theatre Anthology (Hal Leonard), Disney Solos for Kids Classical- 26 Italian Songs and Arias (Alfred), First Book of... (Hal Leonard), 36 Songs for Young Singers (Hal Leonard) Jazz- Jamey Aebersold Jazz Series (Jamey Abersold Jazz Pop/Rock- The Contemporary Singer: Elements of Vocal Technique (Berklee) PIANO: Alfred's Basic Piano Series
Teaching Styles: In my lessons, I strive to create a fun and positive environment for each student by building their music skills as well as building confidence in their own unique musical instruments. Students will have the opportunity to experiment singing in different styles and genres. Lessons will begin with warm-ups and vocal exercises, basic music theory and then end with working on repertoire and technique. Students are always encouraged to bring in new repertoire or make suggestions as to what they would like to sing.
