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:
I've been working with children long before I chose my major and started college. Singing was always a big part of my "play". I studied elementary education but even when I was in the general classroom I used music. I enjoyed making up songs to help different skills and ideas stick. For the past 3 years I have been teaching music. I have taught Preschool up to 8th grade. I've also worked with high school age students in a worship band capacity at my church. My favorite part about teaching music is the look on a student's face when something finally clicks. The most important part of my music classes is that my students are having fun as they're learning. I want them to feel safe and comfortable, especially in making mistakes. Mistakes are a big part of the learning process, especially when you're working with something as tricky as your voice. If a student is not comfortable putting themselves out there it's going to be much harder to reach their full potential.
Instruments: Piano, Voice
Teaching Methods: For beginning piano students, I typically start with the Hal Leonard "My First Piano Adventure for the Young Beginner," series. As students progress in their piano studies, I begin introducing solo repertoire that will support the concepts being learned in the book series. I will also assign small writing projects from time to time, to sharpen students' compositional and music reading skills. For voice students, my approach will vary, depending on individual experience and skills. For high school age students, I typically use Italian and English art songs, as well as classic musical theater pieces. For younger singers, Disney songs, pop and folk songs are the standard for lessons. Singers of all ages will be guided towards the path of music literacy, musical concepts presented in lessons will be age appropriate and based upon experience.
Teaching Styles: I love helping people discover their unique potential and passion for music! It is important to me to understand the complete student; by learning about what inspires a student, I am able to be a better teacher to that student. The music teacher-student bond can be very special, and I strive to make meaningful, positive relationships with all of my students. I am enthusiastic and encouraging to my students, and I am always sensitive to individual needs and learning styles. In lessons, constructive criticism is always coupled with a positive note; this is an important, delicate balance that's crucial to motivated music learning. Small achievements are praised, because I believe that little steps help us to reach those bigger goals.

Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice, Drums, Bass Guitar
The particular style I teach is a repatitous style. During lessons I have students go through exercises and pieces until they get it down, no time wasted. This way the lessons are the most benificial and most rewarding for both the student and the teacher.
Instruments: Piano, Voice, Organ, Synthesizer
The way I teach is the way I was taught, using methods that were in place when I was a kid, some of these techniques date back to the 1800's. I believe in teaching scales, and also the Carl Czerny exercises and etudes, pieces that are designed to get beginners up to the advanced level.

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
