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: Guitar, Voice, Acoustic Guitar
I typically create individualized plans for my vocal students, depending on their level. I focus on technique and ease of singing with proper breathing for support. I do visualization techniques to help achieve an increased range without strain. I incorporate music the student is interested in to maintain their interest and love of music. I choose pieces of music that are appropriate for their level, yet challenging enough to keep them always improving. With my guitar students, I start with proper technique of holding the guitar and pick. I then teach the names of notes and strings. I use the Alfred book to help my students to learn how to read. I also teach songs the student is interested in learning to keep them excited about music.

My philosophy is to have high expectations for students but to make sure that lessons are a low pressure environment. From the very first lesson I stress rhythmic accuracy and note reading. Although it's nice for students to have impressive or flashy pieces to play in a performance some teachers have a tendency to focus on one piece too much and neglect the overall skills of the students. Every student I've taught has been able to learn note and rhythms and to understand what they are playing and not just spoonfed a few pieces. My goal is for students, no matter how long they take lessons, to be able to learn any piece they want (obviously relative to their level) on their own as long as they have sheet music. For my private students I use the method books Fundamental Keys by Rachel Jimenez and the Piano Adventure series by Nancy and Randall Faber.
Instruments: Piano, Voice
I began formally teaching during my college years, over ten years ago. I have consistently maintained a home studio since then, teaching every skill level from beginner to advanced. My students have thrived in my positive, enthusiastic teaching style. I have even had students change majors to pursue professional musicianship! I have performed vocally all over the world, but more importantly I have taught students from many different cultures. The best compliment I ever received was from a former student from one of my first ever classes taught at a university. Seven years after he took my basic vocal skills classes, he recognized me in a crowd and came to tell me that my class had truly changed his life; it had been the best class he took in college, and he could still remember the things I had taught!

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
