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 teach flute students of all ages and levels. Lessons are one-on-one and personalized to each individual. If you want to improve your skills for an audition, performance, or for your own enjoyment, I can help you! All students will learn proper breath control, develop a beautiful sound, and excellent technique. Flute lessons will strengthen your music reading and rhythm.
I am offering lessons to anyone who needs some help to get better at their playing, or if they are just starting. I can help with understanding of rhythms, figuring out new notes, new ways to play some notes and helping students learn new material.
I am studying to be an elementary teacher so I love teaching and I yearn to have students! I love teaching others what I have learned and would love teaching flute to others! I like to focus on whatever the student is comfortable with playing and their level of playing and build the difficulty as time goes on.
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.
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 believe learning should be fun and it’s not about how good you are it’s about personal growth. I like to help students achieve goals in their playing as well as further their knowledge of the music world.
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 give lessons to any dedicated student willing to learn, via Skype or in person. Lessons cover basics of musicianship through higher level musicality and performance. As a tutor in musicology or theory, I tutor in person or online as necessary.
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.
My name is Jenna Kolesnick and am currently a college student. I love music and fell in love with the Flute the first time I played it. It is important to keep lessons fun in order to keep students engaged as well as motivated to want to learn and improve their playing. Practicing is key, I firmly believe that practicing at least 4 days a week for a minimum of 30 minutes is critical.
-- All of my lessons are catered to the individual. I understand that all students have different learning styles, and I base my teaching methods off of what is best for the student. -- Your success as a student is dependent on how much you practice on your own. I recommend a minimum of 15 minutes of practice every day for beginning students.
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.
