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
Teaching Methods: The core curriculum I use is the Alfred Basic Piano Library for piano students and the Alfred Guitar Books for guitar students. I teach beginner to early advanced piano and beginner guitar. Many of my students also sing. I help students with vocal exercises and musical pieces of their choosing, as well as songs that would be good for their unique voice and style. I like the Alfred piano method, because there is an entry point for students of any age and level of ability. The books are enjoyable and the information is presented in a logical and sequential way, which allows for steady progress. My piano students complete four books on each level of Alfred, e.g., Lesson, Theory and Technic, plus Hymn, Praise Hits, Top Hits or Christmas. I use handouts for chord studies and also teach students to play from lead sheets (fake book style) and learn improvisation. I use other printed materials in the genre that the student enjoys and is interested in. I especially enjoy helping would-be church pianists learn to enhance their hymn-playing, how to identify chords in SATB music for improvisation, and other skills needed to make church music beautiful, worshipful and exciting. With guitar students, I use the Alfred Guitar books and also teach tablature, fingerpicking and accompaniment styles.
Teaching Styles: Learning to play the piano is a great activity for children, teens and adults. It raises general intelligence and enhances eye/hand coordination, spatial relationships, personal discipline, problem solving, stress management and mental alertness. I tailor my teaching style to the needs of each student based on their age, ability and personal musical goals. I am very patient and encouraging. I believe that music should be a fun, fascinating and rewarding experience!
Instruments: Piano, Voice
I teach anyone that has the desire to learn and the willingness to practice. I use an INDIVIDUALIZED APPROACH with all students and depending on students’ age and need, I write different lesson plans for each one of them. I am not just here to advertise myself. As a musician and a teacher, I want to show what music does in your life, how it can affect or improve your life as well. I also want you to understand first that I care for my students and their success. Together we will develop goals and objectives to help the child or adult be a successful player with excitement, enthusiasm, and passion.
Instruments: Piano, Voice, Trumpet
Teaching Methods: For beginners I do tend to use the Hal Leonard series, but am not limited to just books. I custom fit teaching styles to every individual need. I also write out my own lessons, and feel it is very important to teach what each student is interested in rather than strict teaching methods. I teach styles that my students want to learn and are interested in. If you want to learn what you just heard on the radio, I also "play by ear", so I can teach you what you just heard. The love and enjoyment of music has always been my main focus, and I love sharing that with others.
Teaching Styles: My teaching style is based on the needs of the student, and is individualized. I am told I am a more relaxed teacher; I incorporate theory into every lesson, but have a more relaxed teaching style.
Instruments: Piano, Voice
Piano: For beginning piano lessons, I typically begin with a mix of theory and beginner repertoire of simple but recognizable melodies. I move on to Alfred's Piano Lessons and then begin introducing appropriate repertoire. For older students, I guide the student through a variety of appropriate repertoire and exercises meant to increase technical skill while also engaging in their interests. Voice: Every lesson begins with proper breathing techniques, regardless of age or training. One cannot sing if they cannot breathe. From their, the lessons will follow the student's interests. Whether it is preparing for an audition or to become a better performer, I try to keep the student engaged in their repertoire and encourage the student to pick appropriate repertoire for their voice type.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice, Drums, Bass Guitar
My students are driven and excited, no matter how old or young because of my teaching style. They show me the music they love and I translate that into piece meal lesson plans and exercises to get them there. I'm also a strong proponent of having a solid technical foundation, where students learn their techniques and scales--the hows and whys of music.

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
