I truly love sharing the gift of music with my students! As a professional musician for over 20 years, I can help beginners all the way up to advanced students studying saxophone, flute, clarinet, piano, music theory, composition, arranging and improvisation. My focus is always to help my students build their skills and confidence, step-by-step.
My method is to study each student's learning strengths and weaknesses. There is not one method that works for every person. I adjust the method to match the student. I have written music books and workbooks for teaching different methods and seen much success over the years across the United States and in some other countries as well.
I firmly believe that anyone can be a musician, and the benefits of music-making extend beyond technical skill. I take a multifaceted approach to learning an instrument while focusing on fundamentals, tone, musicality, and expression.
I base my lessons on The Four F's: Friendly, Firm, Fair, and Focused. As a Tutor, I will tailor to students specific needs for instruction and will challenge every student according to their level of skill. I strive to establish a clear understanding of music and produce great performance results.
Personal Statement on Music Education Warren Fordham Many things about the field of music education motivate me, because being a music teacher/band director is very important to me. There are numerous reasons why music education is close to my heart. For instance, I believe performers, composers, and songwriters should share their craft.
I approach each topic with the student's needs in mind because every student is different and learns differently. I teach the basics to younger students and speak with them on their weaknesses and strengths.
I start by analyzing the student to see where they are at in their musical journey. I also account for their personal interests and form a curriculum out of their desires as well. I always include music theory alongside the curriculum and, at the appropriate time, ear training as well.
I teach flute, piccolo, alto flute, and ethnic flutes (recorder, penny whistle, etc.) and most importantly MUSIC! Learning skills on your instrument is crucial for success making the music of your choice. Once you have proficiency on the instrument, then we study the music and the elements that make it complete, ie. harmony, rhythmic complexities.
I based my classes on individual needs. For beginners I start with the fundamentals of music theory (how to read music, scales, learning the concepts of playing) and then work on the basics of clarinet playing. For more advanced students, I allow them to work on pieces and help them improve on them and give them exercises and advice on how they can improve their playing.
I am a vocalist, French horn player, clarinetist, composer, and arranger. I give lessons to students of all ages in these subjects. I will aim to help you grow by helping to improve your technique. You might have a great voice or incredible ability on your instrument/composer, but you may not know the techniques that will enable it to truly flourish.
I plan to teach the basics and more. I can teach the proper ways to hold and to play in tune and read music. I can teach middle school to high school students how to play the clarinet and to read music.
My teaching method is perfection in the arts but also to envelope love for music. In my experience, I enjoy playing music with passion and accuracy. I believe students will enjoy music through mastery of skills and their ability to enjoy a piece's musical flow. All students are able to succeed through music in spite of any lacking of confidence.
Fundamentals are important, but playing music should be fun from day one. We'll work on learning to play melodies and tunes with which the student is already familiar. I've found that once a new musician sees how simple some of their favorite songs can be, it's easy to dive into the music theory side and explain "why it works.
I have been where you have been I will be able to help with any audition music and will be able to help with solos and help you get over whatever kind of nerves you have.
My focus is the improvement of individual skills (scales, sight reading, ear training, musical expression, and knowledge of music structure).
My teaching method includes individualized progress based on the students wants and needs, we work for goals required by their band programs and for personal growth with proficiency on their instrument
In my lessons we go as slow or as fast as the student is needing to go.
My teaching method is progression at the students pace, making sure they comprehend everything they need to know like fingerings, ampochure, and technique
My teaching method involves figuring out what is best for the student, weather that be singing, clapping, visualizing, or all of the above.
