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, Guitar, Voice, Drums, Bass Guitar, Ukulele, Mandolin
Teaching Methods: I typically teach basic sight reading and scales in the very beginning. But music is more than just notes on a page. I teach students to find their own voice on their instrument. THAT IS IMPORTANT. I have no desire to create clones of myself :) I want to give students the tools they need, so they can find who 'they are' musically. We're all different and have different gifts. My job is to discover their gifts, nurture them and support them so that one day they may stand up and show the world the creative individual that lives inside.
Teaching Styles: My teaching style involves sight reading, chord charts and improvization
When I was a child I decided not to be any kind of teachers. I wanted to be a performer and I was. Then I came to the USA in 2001, and it seemed to be a challenge when I had to teach in a class as a part of the college program. So I started to teach and even I was surprised that my students soon became very successful. Since then I have been teaching and I enjoy visiting the performances where I see my students on stages. My experience from the opera stage helps me to recognize the artist in the student.
With a degree in Music Education, I have maintained a career as a professional vocal coach, teacher, musical director and performer for more than thirty-five years, focusing on vocal production, technique, and performance skills for both solo and choral ensembles. My students have appeared on Broadway, in national tours, on television, in commercials, movies, and regional theatres. As a performing artist, my personal credits include Broadway, off-Broadway, cabaret, dinner theatre, church and synagogue soloist and numerous recordings. I have also appeared with Labors of Love, a benefit for Broadway Cares / Equity Fights AIDS and was a featured soloist on their Christmas CD, Carols for a Cure.
Instruments: Piano, Voice
As a singer who has already experienced some of the traumatic effects of misuse and overuse of singing, I believe that health comes first. Anyone can learn to sing but there are so many significant factors that most teachers forget to include in their training. I believe that any one can have or learn to have talent, but the singer who has the awarness and understanding of taking care of that talent will benefit more than they can imagine. I have experience with speech and voice therapy, as well as training in voice pedagogy, Alexander's Technique, and Body Mapping which I feel is important to include when teaching voice. Also, I believe it is up to the student or the student's parent(s) if lesson plans should be actively persued, and if they are then each student would be analyzed and have a unique plan that includes a combination of my experiences and training.
Instruments: Piano, Voice, Saxophone, Clarinet, Recorder
Ideally, I prefer to work with younger children because it is at this stage in life that they are most musically receptive; I believe it is important for a budding musician to love their craft and - regardless of age, technical skill can only take one so far in the arts. I have seen far too many musicians abandon their gift for the mundane, due to distorted visions of incompetence and unwarranted deceptions of grandeur. As a result, I have made emotional stability and dedication an absolute pillar in my philosophy. In addition to practical instruction, I strive to make sure students are aware of their own abillities, so that they may recognise, appreciate, and nurture their talents to the furthest potential with the necessarily outlook.

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
