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, Bass Guitar, Euphonium, Tuba
Teaching Methods: As a guitar teacher, I like to start with gatting the student accustomed with each string, including how to tune and different notes on each string. Next, I start teaching chords by starting with E minor and then moving as little as possible with the fingers so the student can understand the relation between certain chords. For voice, I start with posture and breath support and work on vocal techniques before we even start with singing songs. Finally, with piano, I use Alfred's Group Piano for Adults books 1 and 2. Of course, those are only guidelinesand I'm always feline to teach a different way if it is not working for the student or if they're looking for something more specific.
Teaching Styles: My greatest qualty as a teacher is being flexible and listening to my students' needs. Not everyone learns the same way and to try t teach everyone the same way, you won't always get the results you want. That's why during my first lesson with each student, I try to figure out what the student wants to learn and how they learn best so we can come up with a plan that would work best for them, knowing that there's always room to amend that plan. I would say my second best quality as a teacher is being able to teach the theory behind the musical they are learning. I mainly teach voice, guitar, and piano, but through those styles, I also teach jazz guitar,vocal improvisation, classical and jazz theory, ear training, vocal technique, and composition and arranging. I want to be able to cover as many areas of music that a student is interested in.
Instruments: Guitar, Voice, Drums
I started teaching lessons in college and have loved being a part of people's musical journey. It is important to help my students develop skills and technique as well as find the love and meaning behind why we do what we do as musicians. In order to help my students grow and flourish to their fullest potential, I make individualized lesson plans for their personal goals, abilities, and music preferences. Being a music therapist in addition to a musician, performer, and educator, gives me a unique perspective, empathy, and approach to how my students relate to music and how they relate to me as their teacher. I am all about empowering my students.
Instruments: Piano, Voice
Teaching Methods: Lessons begin with warm ups to strengthen muscles, dexterity, and pitch accurancy. Following that, we sing a selction of songs, some the student suggests, and others I suggest to try and improve certain aspects of their development. We work on everything from musical theater to classical to country to R&B, whichever genre they are the most interested in!
Teaching Styles: I like my students to feel very comfortable with me and I like to create a long term relationship with them, but I also like to prepare them very thoroughly for whatever auditions or performances they have in the future.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Organ, Synthesizer, Recorder, Piccolo, Oboe, Bassoon, Keyboard
From 2002 to present I have taught private lessons and ensembles here at Filedheacht Music School [East Bridgewater, MA] which I own and operate. I have taught throughout my career as time and schedule have permitted since 1983. Consistent practice habits and structure that are responsive to the student's abilites, goals and schedule are the core of my approach. I endeavor to Inspire, Educate and Achieve: in that order!
For Voice Students, I will start with a warm-up, putting emphasis on intonation and projection. After we have worked on some fundamental exercises during the warm-up, we will move on to what material the student wants to learn. I typically work quickly, with a backing track, and rewind certain parts of a song back a few times to work on tricky spots. Every 4 or 5 lessons I will also take the time to teach the students some elements of sightreading. We will learn how to read rhythms, and then work towards learning to read pitches, utilizing the number method or movable "do" solfeggio. For interested students, I also teach Music Production and "Beat-Making". I can bring my MacBook workstation with the software I own, and sit down with a student teaching them how to write a song from beginning to end. Along the way the student can learn some very cool tips and tricks about how to make songs work.

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
