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:

I love to see my students evolve their ability as musicians. In my lessons, I will let the student pick the piece that they want to play, and we will work to perfect the piece that the student chooses. I don't believe in holding recitals in children under 10 unless the student wants to perform in a recital. When I see a child learn, it gives me great pleasure.
I teach using the Italian Bel Canto school of thought on singing. This style of singing promotes vocal hygiene and longevity by focusing on supporting vocal sound using the breath rather than relying 100% on the muscles of the throat. While attending KSU, I had the privilege of studying with Dr. Reginald Pittman, current Regional governor of the West Central Region of the National Association of Teachers of Singing, and head of the voice division at KSU. Dr. Pittman traces his vocal lineage all the way back to the father of Bel Canto sinigng, Francesco Lamperti, and I am very fortunate to have learned from this excellent singer. Dr. Pittman instructed me in a very organic manner that focused on the position of different muscles and bones that are involved in the anatomy of singing. As such, my students will sometimes receive lessons on anatomical positions while singing. However, I have many methods of engaging the students at a pace and in a manner that keeps lessons interesting and comprehendable. It is important to note that most singers (especially younger ones) cannot and should not engage in vocal instruction for longer than an hour without feeling some vocal fatigue leading to vocal damage. As such, I will only instruct for half an hour at a time.
Instruments: Piano, Voice, Trumpet, Saxophone, Flute, Piccolo
Because all students have a unique style of mearning, at any age, I usually choose music that fits the student's ability at that time. If a student has a special request to learn a certain song, we discuss if it will be appropriate for them, or if they have to work up to that level. For piano students, I use the Thompson piano series (red book), and for other students, especially flute, there are methods books that I teach from.

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
