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
Teaching Methods: Potential students like to know what my approach is to both instruments. With my voice students, I begin with the 24 Italian arias. My grade school and chorus students catch on quickly to foreign language and Italian is used as it is full of vowels unlike German OR English! We choose from a variety of resources, as I do with piano students. I begin with the Alfred series, but again we will discuss and choose from a variety of resources
Teaching Styles: ...
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.
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.
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.

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
