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.
Experienced Harpist and music educator with three degrees in music education and over 40 years of teaching experience, providing private and small group lessons for students studying Harp, Flute or music theory. Multiple performance opportunities in an ensemble, and as a soloist.
I like to get to know my students and what they are looking for. I guide them through the basics and in creating a solid practice ethic. I also encourage them to learn about other music and to explore their instruments capabilities.
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 am a professional saxophonist and jazz musician in the NYC area. I graduated from the City College of New York with a BFA in Jazz Performance. My professional life involves performing my own original music, performing the music of my peers, performing for events such as weddings and corporate gatherings, arranging music for others and teaching private lessons.
I have my Masters in Music Performance from the University of Cincinnati Conservatory of Music. Prior to having two wonderful children in 2000, I performed extensively with all the major performance groups in Kansas City as well as live radio in Cincinnati, and special events in New York Cincinnati in Kansas City.
My goal is to help my students grow as musicians! Based on my experience, I've been able to teach beginners how to play and read basic music in a short period of time (3-4 weeks). I would like to add visuals as well during lessons to help students understand with much ease. Of course, the lessons would differentiate depending on the student's level of playing.
When I teach music, I want to teach more than just memorizing the order and timing of the notes. I want my students to understand the fundamentals of the fundamentals. I want them to know the math and physics behind the music, the patterns within the music, and the meaning and emotions behind their music.
Connecting with my students and being attentive to their learning needs is top priority. Each student brings their unique learning style, and I strive to fit my curriculum to best fit their path. It is of utmost importance for music material to fit the level of each student, so I often write, arrange, or change music to customize the learning experience.
I approach each lesson plan different depending on the student and their level of confidence. I believe everyone not only learns differently but also has different needs depending on the subject which will have a need for teachers to change their tactics. I like to make sure I not only thoroughly know the subject but also being able to show different methods for teaching it.
I am a musician that has been studying since the age of 7. I am trained in classical piano, flute and am an opera singer. I am also a nanny and spend most of my time educating young minds.
My teaching method is based on your experience with the flute. If you are a beginner, we work on getting to know your instrument, how to place fingers and mouth in the right places, getting sounds out, and we move as the player continues.
My teaching method very step by step. I approach each student with an analytical point of view at first, so I can try to determine the level of the student and how the student learns, because I acknowledge that every student learns differently. I like to keep my teaching environment light and encouraging, so the student has the positive encouragement to live up to their fullest potential.
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 give lessons to kindergarten to sixth grade students. I am funny, striving to be my best, fun all in one. I love teaching it is kind of in my blood. It gives me a sense of accomplishment and is fun.
Music is such a fundamental learning tool for life. Over the past few decades music is slowly being cut from out education programs around the world.
Hina Le graduated from the BM degree in the Royal Danish Academy of Music in Copenhagen - Denmark and later earned the MM degree in Flute Performance in the Vietnam National Academy of Music. I participated in the world famous Sir William Bennett’s masterclass in London several times and in an advance chamber music course with the Fantasia Wind Quintet in the Malmo Music Academy in Sweden.
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.
My teaching method is to give a test to find out level of knowledge, teach the basics first, unless already known to person. Teach on the instrument that the child/person is willing to learn and also teach a second instrument when possible.
I endeavor to provide lessons of the highest quality in a positive environment, to help nurture a lifelong love of music, and to blend education and pleasure. I will make every lesson enjoyable and productive. I will explain efficient practice habits and encourage and inspire. I will evaluate honestly and use only constructive criticism.
I believe that no one is ever done learning, and anyone of any age or experience can learn new musical skills! I have firsthand experience teaching both individual and group lessons to elementary and middle school students, and through my education courses I have learned how to formulate lesson plans and curriculums for students of any ability, whether they are experienced musicians or just...
I believe in making lessons interesting and catered to the student. I like to explore all avenues with music and like to encourage my students to be curious about their interests. I believe technique is of the utmost importance so my lessons revolve around the fundamentals to make you a better flute player.
My teaching begins with saxophone basics such as reed selection, repair options, scale practice, velocity exercises, and sight reading. We work on tone and substitute fingerings in both Pop or Jazz. Work to develop good practice habits.
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.
My teaching method involves using the first lesson to assess the student’s existing ability, if any, and developing an approach based on the student’s level. If the student has no previous experience, we will start with the basics of playing.
teaching methodology... i like to see what helps you learn hands on or by sight you pick.
I’m a flutist in the New York area who performs regularly with the contemporary ensemble, ENSEMBLE MISE-EN. I love teaching and have students ranging in age from 7 to 75. I welcome all ages and skill levels. My lessons are unique per student depending on skill level and musical interest. I myself have a Masters and Bachelor Degree in Music and contemporary performance.
I gave lessons throughout my high school years. I am proficient in various academic subject areas to all beginners and some intermediate students. I am very understanding and work at the pace of those I am teaching. Not every one student is like the other which is why I focus on the individual rather keep a set in stone teaching method.
I am a college student enrolled in music with a 3.5 GPA and have given lessons in person for over three years. As a teacher, I try to relate my lessons to whatever the student finds interesting and engaging, while still progessing, rather than a rigid, unmoving structure.
