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 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.
Teaching Methods: Vocal instruction and techniques suited to the individual student's needs and experience level.
Teaching Styles: Amanda specializes in Classical singing but she is also qualified to teach a variety of different styles of singing including Musical theatre, Pop, Country, and Gospel. During the lessons you will learn breathing techniques, warm up and technical exercises to improve your range and tone, and also specific repertoire study on specific songs that will improve and enhance your voice.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice, Drums, Bass Guitar, Synthesizer, Harmonica, Lap Steel Guitar, Banjo, Ukulele, Mandolin, Recorder, Conga, Latin Percussion
Teaching Methods: I write all my own lesson materials focusing on what the student needs to know to play, understand, and enjoy music to achieve their goals. I have used several method books in the past but find them all limited or focused on styles or technique that is not what the student wants or needs to learn. I can teach from any established method if that is preferred, but instead enjoy challenging the student to understand what music is and how music is played on their chosen instrument, not just to read.
Teaching Styles: I have a very personal and relaxed way of teaching that helps each student enjoy and advance on their chosen instrument at their pace. I prefer 60 minute sessions to have the time to fully evaluate and advance from the previous lesson and to move on to new material. I use the student's preferred style of music to teach them how to play, and expand their styles and technique from there. I teach private one-on-one lessons or can arrange group classes with other students of like interests.
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
Teaching Methods: I incorporate a variety of method books and approaches to learning music, believing that there is no one method for every student. For piano, my favorite methods are Faber and Faber's Piano Adventures, but I enjoy utilizing supplemental material from a variety of genres.
Teaching Styles: I absolutely love watching a student who has tried to understand a concept suddenly light up, smile, and say, "Oh, now I get it!" I believe that a teacher should try a variety of ways to help a student understand and "own" their musical knowledge. I set high standards for my students, starting where they are and encourgaing them to go beyond what they think is their personal best. I have students write goal and wish lists down throughout the year, setting small, reachable goals and then larger goals that may take longer to reach.

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
