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, Violin, Trumpet, Trombone
Teaching Methods: My methods vary for each instrument so I have given a basic outline of my techniques below: For beginning students who are children I start with the basics, how do you play this funny musical instrument! I have a few different books I turn to based on the student. For beginner adults I have a more technical approach to teaching the basics and will focus on what you really want to learn and get out of your lessons. For more advanced students I have a variety of books that I use for technique and theory as well as solo pieces we can learn for recitals and auditions.
Teaching Styles: For children my teaching style is very reward based, I love stickers so always give them one once they've mastered their song for the week and such. Lots of encouragement and positive feedback and working through the difficult things in a positive manner. For adults I will teach based on you! If you are really looking for a fun hobby with the music we will be more laid back and relaxed with it and can bounce around and learn all sorts of different things! If you are looking to get into being a serious musician or are preparing for an audition we will focus on technique and sound as well as preparing any materials you have required and also working through a list of repertoire that will grow at your pace, will still be a lot of fun though!
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice, Keyboard, Acoustic Guitar
For begginging piano sudents who are children I typicall being with John Thompson's "Teaching Little Fingers to Play." Once the student has completed their fundemental training we being to introduce more solo repertoire tailored to their interested. We work on one classical and one comtemporary song of their choosing. For adult piano students, we discuss their goals and what they are interested in and I tailor my instruction no matter their instrumental expereince. For Voice students I asses each vocalist and provide a completley unique one of kind vocal lesson package tailored to the students ability, sound, and experience no matter what that may be. We have fun working through excersizes as well as through contemporary and classical pieces.
Instruments: Piano, Voice
I have been teaching for 10 years, both privately and in schools. I have taught voice, piano, acting, general music education and directed choirs. I emphasize a performance based approach to music. I believe that communication is the essence and purpose of music, and good technique cannot be divorced from performance. I find that creating an warm, open, non-judgmental environment in lessons allows my students to get in touch with the meaning of the music and allows them to add their own personality to their piece to create a truly individual interpretation and performance.
Teaching Methods: First off, I make sure that my student has a strong foundational understanding for the breathing mechanism and how it functions. I emphasize that singing is not that much different than speech, in that we never run out of air when we are talking, so why should it happen when we sing? My philosophy is that a healthy breath and body produces the healthiest sound, free of anything extraneous. Many students come to me with an upcoming audition, and so I like to explore performance techniques within the song, such as character development and acting/gestures to make for a well-rounded perfomance. I often "tie a bow" at the end of lessons, summarizing everything that was covered and asking the student to articulate a list of things they will work on for next time.
Teaching Styles: I often begin by asking the student what got them started singing in the first place. That initial point of musical inspiration is key to artistic development. It is easy to get bogged down and frustrated by the technique of singing, so re-invigorating that initial passion is key. If I assign a piece for a specific techinical purpose, I always let the student have full veto power if that piece does not speak to them in any way. I also incorporate exercises having to do with the body as a whole: singing on the ground, or sitting on an exercise ball can really engage the breathing mechanism in a new and enlightening way. Our voice cannot be separate from our body, and so I emphasize that we have to keep the body in good shape so that it works for us and not against us.
Instruments: Piano, Voice

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
