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
Teaching Methods: Every student has a different learning style. It is my job as the instructor to figure out what that is. Typically, I learn where my student’s interests lie in order to better engage them. At the same time, I teach them the fundamentals of music, which play an equally important role in their education.
Teaching Styles: Nothing is more rewarding than seeing one of my students develop a passion for music! Therefore, it's important that each student progresses at his or her own pace. I encourage this by setting realistic goals for my students at each lesson. Acknowledging accomplishments helps fuel a student’s desire to progress, and makes students eager to learn more. By trying to find out what inspires the student, I can successfully tailor my instruction to their wants and needs.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice, Drums, Bass Guitar, Organ, Synthesizer
Teaching Methods: I think it is important to keep students interested in their instrument, therefore I try to teach equal parts theory and equal parts learning songs that they want to learn. Obviously children need more guidance so I loosely follow a combination of some of my favorite books but still keep it fun. I usually have my students give me a list of songs and I will decide which is best to start with.
Teaching Styles: Over the years I have had some of my students pursue music so far that they actually have become professional touring musicians themselves and nothing makes me more proud. Knowing that I played such a huge role in shaping their careers is probably the most rewarding thing when it comes to teaching and perhaps my biggest accomplishment. I have met some of my closest friends through music and I am very thankful to be able to say that, as I believe life is all about the relationships you build along the way.
Teaching Methods: Classes are broken down into three sections 1. breathing and body exercises 2. vocal exercises 3. repertoire and style. In the breathing and body exercises we discuss the idea of breathing for singing and proper vocal support. This is fundamental to good vocal technique and is the basis for everything that we will be working on achieving with our voice. In the vocal exercises section we will engage in various vocal sounds using scales and arpeggios. This will help to warm up the voice so that proper vocal function can occur and it will also aid me in learning more about your particular and special instrument. Everyone's voice is unique and special and this is when we learn about how your voice naturally functions and what are your strengths etc In the repertoire section we will practice songs in various styles or the desired style that the student wishes to master. The repertoire will be chosen based on level and ability.
Teaching Styles: I love working with students in helping them achieve their goals and dreams! There's is nothing more rewarding than helping others express themselves through music and more specifically vocal music!
Instruments: Piano, Voice
Teaching Methods: For my piano students I typically use Alfred's Piano books for both children and adults. This series of books, I believe, does a great job of creating a starting point for younger and older students. Along with those books, I encourage the study of scales and other warm ups. For my voice students I partner with the student to find songs that the student will love to sing. My instruction for vocal technique is based on getting the student to have a free, beautiful sound through the use of breathing and vocalises (warmups).
Teaching Styles: My goal is to help my students to be passionate about music! I encourage routine practice and together we come up with a realistic standard for progress. I want my students to enjoy their lessons and to look forward to the next time we meet. I want my students to believe that they are truly capable and that there is no limit to their progress once they fall in love with what they are doing: making music.
Instruments: Piano, Voice
Teaching Methods: I have my own method of teaching which has worked for every student I have had. For piano, I begin teaching basic music theory and sight reading from the very first lesson. For voice, I emphasize proper breathing as one of the key elements of singing. From that point, students learn a bit more "technical stuff" at each lesson, while also having time to work on things that they choose. I like to give students an idea of what would be beneficial to them and then let them choose their own repertoire based on their musical preferences. I emphasize consistent practice but in a stress-free way. One of the most important things is for each student to feel that they are having fun in their learning and also learning things that are important to them.
Teaching Styles: The most important part of teaching, for me, is to see my students developing a love for music. Each student is different and will show their skills/talents in different ways and at different paces. I am patient to let students grow in their own way while also challenging them to be the best they can be. I love to laugh with my students and develop a rapport with them that makes them feel comfortable in the lesson environment. By accomplishing one small goal at a time, every student can be successful.
