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, Violin
For piano beginners I use the Faber book series. I prefer these books because it gives a mixture of theory and technique that I think is essential to learn at an early stage. For violin beginners I prefer to use the Suzuki Method books. These books are great because they get the student playing quickly, while still introducing the foundations of basic theory for reading music. Beginning guitar is a little more flexible depending on the students goals and the styoe they would like to learn. In the past I have used Hal Leonard's book series, the Carcassi series, or created unique lesson by finding tabulature for songs the student was interested in. Voice is also a more tailored experience based on students preferences and thanks to the ability to find sheet music for nearly everything online.
Instruments: Piano, Voice, Recorder
Faber & Faber, Bastian, Hal Leonard and more.
Instruments: Piano, Voice
Teaching Methods: Our first lesson will be a "get to know you lesson." I will ask questions such as "What kind of music do you like?", "What are your musical goals?", and " Have you ever taken lessons?" I want to know everything there is to know about your history and likes and dislikes in music. For the following lessons, we will start off with music theory because as a musician it is VERY important for you to understand how to read, write, analyze, and count music. Once we are done with theory we will move on to warm-ups. Each student is different so each student will have their own set of warm-ups. My goal is to extend my students' range in a healthy way. After warm-ups we'll move to singing.
Teaching Styles: I find that music theory is very important in learning how to sing.
Teaching Methods: I believe that each students is at a different level so you have to tailor everything based on that. I believe that reading music is extremly important in the development of singing as well as enjoying music. I believe that each student should know key signatures as well as what notes are on and off the staff. For all students I focus on the following: Breath, Correct Vowel Placement. I believe that if you have solid breath foundations then you can produce purer vowels and in turn if you have purer vowels then you have longer lasting and easier breath production. There are obviously more factors than just these two, but I find that if you can do those two things well then getting the others aspects of singing come much easier.
Teaching Styles: I encourage lots of questions from my students. I will also ask them to tell me what they felt in there voice when I ask them to do something. I believe that the voice teacher is only as good as his student can understand what they are actually being asked to do. I set goals for my students, and ask that they practice every day for at least 30 minutes on various things that I may ask them to work on such as scales or a new song ect.
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.

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
