I customize my tutoring to the student's goals (i.e. improving grades, preparing for a music major, learning for the pleasure of learning). The first session will be to determine the best plan of action. I find students are most successful when they have one hour of tutoring every other week, but this will vary. For both music history and music theory, I use the standard textbooks for U.S. schools.
I give music lessons to students of all ages, backgrounds, and levels of ability. Whether you have never sung before or are preparing for a professional singing career, I have the knowledge and teaching experience necessary to shape your lessons to fit your own personal needs and goals.
I'm a music major high school student, who have played piano for 12 years and mastered the music theory and solfeggio, with a different method. I will help you to find the answer to your problems, using methods and daily practice methods or specific practices and help you to improve skills. Also, I will help you to meet the requirements to be a professional musician using your skills.
I am a third year Music Composition student at UCLA able to give lessons in singing, drums and percussion, and music theory to any level of student from kids to adults. I am attentive and listen to the students wants and abilities in order to get the best out of the lesson times because I know what it is like to not get what you want out of a lesson that you pay good money for.
My teaching base starts from a simple base level to gauge the knowledge of my students. My goal is for students to have a true grasp on the material we covered that day and I highly encourage questions. I enjoy teaching any age, but have more experience teaching peers during high school and college.
Each student has their own needs when it comes to learning. I'm prepared to give lessons in anyway that the student feels is their best way to learn.
As a grammy nominated songwriter, my teaching method is getting to know my clients personally. We will start by talking about the importance of bringing real emotions to connect with their song. We will discuss the topic of the song and connect it to their reality.
I took a music theory class in high school and in my first year of college. My college shut down after my first year but I still love to learn music theory and practice it all the time. I didnt miss a single question in my theory class in college. I like to help walk people through what I am teaching and make sure they get the basics.
I am an experienced music tutor who currently resides in Doylestown, PA. I enjoy tutoring elementary and middle students. I also offer music lessons for students preparing for college scholarships. I tutor Individual or group classes online by Skype or locally, in the home. I appreciate any approach to a method of teaching.
I can give lessons from age 4 to 94. From beginning to early advanced in piano. Clarinet and bassoon to Intermediate levels. I use a variety of books and decide which to use depending on open interviews and goals.
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.
Are you taking a music theory class or a music general education course that you cannot seem to wrap your head around? I work extensively with each student to find out what their learning style is first, then create custom lesson plans for each student.
My goal is to structure each of my lessons to the individual student. As we work with each other, I will focus each lesson in the way I believe is best for each student. If a student is working on a new performance piece, I will incorporate aspects of Music Theory and Music History, so students may understand a greater depth of the music they are working on.
My teaching methodology is based on the individual. I believe any student can accomplish anything with a disciplined mind set. With such a mind set, we can functionally share and communicate ideas open to learning.
Teaching is simple with a willing student...I establish what the goals are with the student (what do you want to be able to do?) and then we work on attaining the proper tools to meet those goals. Then the obvious part...practice...
I like to teach experience based, and learning by doing. To learn to compose for an instrument in a particular style, me and my student will choose representative music where we can find examples and then try through imitation and analysis to create our own personal version.
I get to know the the student first. Likes/dislikes, music genres, topics of interest, what problems they are facing, etc. All of this is to be able to give a more personal, exciting, and focused lesson. We will cover everything and anything that peaks an interest in them to have a fuller, more pleasant and encouraging class.
For anything related to music history, an in-depth outline is developed to create presentations with pictures, text, and videos to create a cohesive presentation to try to convey as much information without being too overwhelming. For anything guitar related, I work with guitar tab due to the abundance of people picking up guitars despite never having studied music.
I teach from a correct technique perspective and emphasis correct form as a primary building block. Music theory is a big part of my curriculum as well and studying music history is also encouraged.
My teaching method begins with the students particular interests. Whether a student favors jazz, classical, gospel, or hip-hop will ultimately influence my teaching approach. Also, the particular learning style of the student may determine if I first begin teaching the student music by ear or by paper.
My goal as an educator is to feel where a student is in on their path and to begin to offer them the next few steps on their journey. This goes for any subject.
I have a Ph.D in music composition, I am a published composer. I give many writing assignments as that is the only way one learns to write harmony and counterpoint: by doing it. I also teach style composition, that is, a student will learn to write in many historical (classical) styles.
I base my lessons around the philosophy, music theory and performance aspects. I believe the philosophy and theory cover the thought/formulation basis and the performance base covers the execution portion.
I enjoy sharing the amazing discovery of creating music and so in a fun and productive environment. Feeling at ease to make mistakes and grow is a big part of learning. I am patient and tactful with my students.
I'm a college student in the music tech/composition field who has completed all Courses of Music Theory. I am able to teach all grades from K-12 as well as the college Music Theories 1-4. I will make my teachings variable to whichever level the student is at.
B.A. in Music Education & Performance. I didn't always love Music Theory, but once I understood the basics and was able to apply it to my performance, writing, and arranging, I fell in love, and I think you will, too! I scored a 4 on the AP Music Theory exam.
My teaching style is personable, fast paced, and driven by creativity. My focus is always to concentrate on the expressiveness of the music and constructing the fundamentals necessary to truly explore music. My students also point themselves in specific directions. As a result, I get to enjoy exploring different genres and styles and learning new music alongside the students.
My teaching is custom-fit to each student! Every student is different, so my approach is to assess what an particular learner needs, determine the way in which the student will best absorb new musical information, and proceed from there.
I love music theory and composition. I analyze entire symphonies for fun. If you think BWV 846 is a manifestation of musical perfection, we should be friends. I study and explain things by actually hearing them and experimenting with them, never losing sight of what theory is really about.
I studied piano with Hans-Dieter Meyer-Moortgat in Germany and with Charles Asche in Santa Barbara. I have taught high school music, played for ballet companies and church services and accompanied singers and instrumentalists. Currently I perform at various venues in the LA area and constantly strive to expand my repertoire.
