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:
Teaching Methods: My student, no matter what age, starts with light vocalizing, lip trills, humming etc. for young students I usually pick a light song and work on basics using the song as an exercise. My older students have to work a little more, exercising scales, monitoring placement, support, palette work. A song is picked by me and the student together.
Teaching Styles: I usually build the lesson goals individually with each student by getting to know each other. One basic goal in all lessons though is to develope passion for music and for the human voice as a music instrument.
Instruments: Piano, Voice, Violin, Cello, Viola
Teaching Methods: I like to use a common sense approach with a foundation in music theory to develop the whole musician. I will encourage note reading but will give harmonic context for the singer or keyboardist looking to improve versatility.
Teaching Styles: I will focus on your musical passion and help you set goals based on the musician you would like to be. I will likely use a method book for piano or strings while voice students will develop repertoire from a variety of sources. I can help you learn to sing by reading music or by rote. I will help you seek opportunities for performance to build your confidence and experience.
Instruments: Piano, Voice
Teaching Methods: My usual lesson consists of three things: technique work, classical unpinning, and modern styles. A typical lesson might be to have you play your assigned scales and exercises (Hanon, Czerny, Duvernoy, or the like for you advanced students) play the assigned classical piece (good for building/solidifying technique) and then play something more modern or popluar like rock, jazz, broadway, easy listening, etc. Good technique, or facility, as they say, is good technique. Once honed, that can be used to play or sing any style. I have taught and used successfully many method books such as John Thompson, the Bastien series, and Alfred for piano and Vaccai and 24 Italian Art Songs for voice. Ultimately what we decide to use is up to the particular learning style of the student and how fast you want to learn. It bears repeating: no matter how much talent you have, you must be willing to work and practice. Otherwise, you are just wasting time.
Teaching Styles: My general teaching style is very approachable, easy going, and yet demanding. That means that I believe in positive encouragement during the lesson, but expect the student to work on their own outside the lesson. I can even teach you in Spanish! I am also able to teach online via Skype and have private students taking that way with me now. The greatest thrill for me as a teacher is when that "ah-ha" moment comes to a student and they really get it. There is nothing like encouraging budding talent and being a part of that.
Teaching Methods: With every student I teach, be prepared to sing for me a song of your choice. While you sing, I will evaluate your voice and skillset to determine exactly what I need to do to assist you in your vocal developement. The goal of my lessons is to provide the student with the Technical Knowledge and Understanding of their voice needed to foster confidence, skill and ability to perform music in a public setting.
Teaching Styles: I am very laid back, yet enthusiastic during my voice lessons. I like to keep the singer engaged, so that you will know that you have my full attention. I take pride in hearing my students grow vocally. It is my biggest pleasure to see my students flourish in ways that they never have before. I will never give up on my student's potential. Anything is truly possible. Thus, as long as you believe in the possibilites, there is room for you to achieve all of your wildest dreams! Never stop believing!
Teaching Methods: I am a teacher of functional singing which main purpose is to achieve healthy singing by improving vocal range, stamina, endurance and flexibility. Singers learn to embrace their own voice, not one that is formed through imitation or poor concepts. You will be taught as an individual not "one-size-fits-all" approach.
Teaching Styles: All voices are unique, not one sounds the same. It is my job to find your free sound and help you develop it. We will do this with vocal exercises for your particular strengths and weaknesses. Then incorporating the technique into songs that you will love singing.

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
