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, Ukulele
I prefer to work with Faber books. I believe Faber books do an excellent job at covering all perspectives of music. However, if the student or parent has a curriculum preference, I am open-minded to working with that as well. I believe in consistency. The student will be given work that is reasonable to practice once a day for at least 20 minutes a day. The student shouldn't have to spend hours at the piano, as long as they have just 20 minutes of focused practice a day, this is enough to make significant progress. Even professional performers use this method. I prefer to have the student work on 2 pieces at a time, accompanied with a little theory and technique. One piece should be something to challenge their reading, (usually classical), and the other piece something of personal choice which usually tends to be easier to read, so that the student can build an emotional relationship with their music.
Instruments: Piano, Voice, Trumpet, Trombone, Euphonium, Tuba
Teaching Methods: I like to begin earlier students with a strong foundation of musicianship by connecting core musical concepts to the music that they are exposed to every day. For older students and adults, I will align my teaching to their needs and strive to make every lesson worthwhile and meaningful for their musical development. My lesson materials vary on the specific needs of the student. I strongly believe that listening is a huge component to developing musicianship, so I will often assign listening assignments to students to strengthen their ear.
Teaching Styles: My goal as a music instructor is to support my students and their creativity in such a way that allows for true expression of emotion through music. I want to set earlier students up for success in their school music programs. I try to create a learning environment that gives students the motivation to set weekly goals for each lesson and practice session.
I like to make lessons fun and engaging in addition to being educational.

Every student is different, so my approach to each student is tailored to their goals. Young students need more guidance than older students and are encouraged to broaden their musical tastes and explore what will ignite their musical imaginations. Some of my students are working toward auditions such as The Voice and we focus on song choice, technique and performance. I teach every one of my students as though they were my only student. I encourage my students and rejoice in all of their achievements!

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
