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
My teaching style is an active and open learnig environment where I enjoy fostering creativity while reinforcing the discipline required of learning an instrument. I like to see students advancing in performance while learnig the fundamenals and basics of music theory.
Instruments: Guitar, Voice, Bass Guitar
Teaching Methods: For every one of my beginning students who wants to start playing the guitar or singing, I will alway start them off the best and most knowlegable way I know how, which would be a beginners guide. I started with Hal Leonard's Essential book 1 when I first started learning, and I have always used Hal Leonard's Essential guides for my students. If a student is an intermediate, I can find out where they're at and help them with any handicaps they may have, and point them in the right direction. ***Important note: I am able to teach online via SKYPE or FACETIME as well as in home or studio.
Teaching Styles: I have never liked the dreaded term "homework". So what I like to tell my students to encourage them to achieve the most success they can, is to simply go home and "practice" because practice makes perfect. I feel that learning any instrument is similar to learning a foreign language. You have to start with baby steps before you can carry on a conversation. Just as learning to read and play/sing the notes with your instrument will get through to the listener more clearly.
Instruments: Piano, Voice
I enjoy instilling a love for music in my students and helping them develop as musicians. Through my experiences teaching, I have learned that students have many different ways of learning and so I try to teach using diverse methods. I find that this not only makes my students learn and retain the information better by activating different parts of their brains, but it also helps the students enjoy the lessons more! It is important to me to get feedback from my students to know what they think of the lessons so we conduct the lessons in the most productive manner. I understand that beginners typically get frustrated and that is understandable. I try to keep the lessons light, yet still challenging, to keep the students from getting burnt out at the beginning.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice, Drums, Bass Guitar, Organ, Synthesizer, Double Bass, Mallet Percussion, Orchestral Percussion, Conga, Latin Percussion
For beginners I like to start with using John W. Schaum's Music book as well as helping them to learn basic music theory in order to be able to keep time and know how to read music. I help them to know their music scales so that they know them by heart when playing music. I also inspire my students to join recitals in school as well as encourage them to practice daily as well as play with others. For adult students I try to find their skills. Once I know they have passed beginner skills we can investigate their methods of playing as well as their skills, likes and what area they need to concentrate on to improve and flourish. I encourage all students to choose music they like and help them achieve their goal of playing that song, style or genre.
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice, Drums, Bass Guitar
With 17 years of teaching experience I am certain I could nurture a love and excitement for music lessons. I have gained this experience from owning and operating my own music studio where I have taught children of all ages, including children with learning disabilities ranging from ADHD to down- syndrome.

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
