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, Flute
For me it is really important to see students learning and advancing in music. Understanding every student needs and abilities allows me to set up clear and objective goals for every lesson. Keeping motivating the students through certifying their progress helps them to keep learning. It is also important for me that each student has fun, otherwise I do not feel like I am doing my job!
Instruments: Piano, Voice, Violin, Recorder
Throughout the many years of teaching, I have compiled my own method exercises from different schools (American, Japanese, and British). For younger students, I usually work comprehensively on technique, music literacy, music theory and ear training. For adults, our lessons will be driven by your goals - we can work on repertoires, technique, arranging, transposition, sight reading, improvisation, etc. I encourage students to take their own notes and use technology to practice. Yes, there will be a practice log! It's fun but it's also a commitment.

Instruments: Voice, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Recorder, Oboe
For beginner students, if they are enrolled in a music program at their school, I will use the method they are provided augmented by music and theory I have developed. For Flute students, I have found that many band methods, which are what many public schools use, are not written for flute, but rather are transposed (or translated if you think of music as a language). My method teaches for success. My main concern is that students enjoy what they are doing as it will foster continued interest, a willingness to practice, and success. For intermediate and advansed students, I will work with them on band/orchestra, SEMSBA, and District pieces. I also like to add in other pieces. One company that I like to use is Rubank/Hal Leonard. They make methods from Elementary to Advanced. For vocal students, I will work with a number of different pieces dependant upon skill and interest. I will work on choral, SEMSBA, and District music as well.
Teaching Methods: My own vocal-study is rooted from the pedagogical lines of Manuel Garcia and Lucia Pavarotti. I believe that the young voice must be given time to develop on it's own. With that being said, I am not an advocate of private voice instruction to students under that age of ten or eleven. I build an awareness of the body's physiological role in healthy-singing; breath is the key to phonation (singing). Once the fundamentals are grasped, I spend time teaching basic-music theory. By gaining a deeper understanding of music, we become well-rounded musicians and therefore, better singers. I hand-select music for each student in hopes that they would be interested in performing for their friends and family.
Teaching Styles: I provide private voice instruction to students of an appropriate age. I advocate for using the entire body when singing to establish the body's natural way to singing. It is paramount that students are given ample time to acquaint themselves with the voice that is naturally theirs. My pedagogical approach encompasses technical foundation and healthy, FUN, age appropriate repertoire. My style is based on my knowledge of the voice and it's functions. However, I tailor my approach to accommodate the needs of each student.

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
