I teach mostly from the John Thompson book methods. My style is very easy and relaxed, but focused and goal oriented. I'm an easy guy to get along with, and I love teaching all ages of students, from 8 to 80.
I studied piano in my youth with seven years of piano and recitals. I played flute and piccolo and participated in school bands for seven years. I studied voice and received A's in my college courses and recognition from a international singer when studying through a studio that they were affiliated with.
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.
I have studied organ and piano since I was 9 years old. I graduated from MCC in McHenry, IL with a focus on piano and theory. My training is classically based. I write music for my students as well as prepared and arrange songs for my students in the level they are in. My students pick the songs they want to learn.
Based on my education, training, and experience I have developed an approach that can be summarized in four rules. 1. The notes and the music are not the same thing. 2. Technique and interpretation are the same thing. 3. Practicing is practical and 100% goal oriented. 4. Hard work is never in vain. This approach is flexible and works with all ages and levels.
I am a music graduate with a diploma in interdisciplinary studies, and I teach at all levels of music theory, from beginner to advanced. My teaching method is simple; I approach each topic at its most basic level. In that way, it will be much easier for the student to grasp each and every topic.
I teach piano through traditional reading, using materials based on the learner's age. I teach classical voice, starting with vocalizing and folk songs, moving into classical repertoire.
I like to tailor my teaching approach to each individual. I believe that we all learn in different ways and learning music should be accessible and exciting for you whether you are a visual learner or a kinesthetic learner; a natural or someone who requires a little more cooking time; from a musical family or having never seen a sheet of music in your life.
My teaching method is simple - every person and every student is different. What might work wonderfully as a learning tactic for one student, could be the absolute last resort for another. So, I work on a student-by-student basis, designing lesson plans that cater to the strengths and weaknesses of individuals. I have worked with students as young as four, up through adults.
My methodology is: work smarter, not harder. Technique is of the upmost importance to achieve musical goals without damage to the musician. I give lessons up to college level voice (especially audition cuts and musical theatre singing) and up to intermediate guitar/ukulele/piano. I will expect students to warm up before a lesson as well as with me at the beginning of each session.
I'm currently enrolling Berklee College of Music undergraduate program (with full scholarship), and this is my 5th semester. I mainly teach Jazz piano, and music theory (both Jazz and Classical). My uniqueness as a teacher would be a huge amount of resources and examples that I can offer you during classes.
I am currently pursuing a bachelors degree in Music Education. My primary instrument is voice, but I have 12 years of piano background. I am offering piano instruction online for beginners, instructing in playing the piano as well as general music knowledge (such as reading notes on the staff, writing music, basic music theory).
Each student is unique in their own way and I adapt a lesson plan that will accomplish their goals so they can read and play music. I work with them to teach them how to practice correctly, since they spend most of their time without teaching guidance and it is important that they develop great practice habits to be successful.
My teaching method is to teach the basics in an individual way per student. I find early on what the students best method of learning is and I teach them in a way they can access the information easily.
I'm an adaptive teacher, whatever level my student's knowledge is in the given field, together we assess goals and tangible milestones and I put together a game plan specific to us. Each student is different, so that's how we approach every class.
I believe in a flexible manner of instruction responsive to age, personality, ability, and background of each individual. I have taught students with autistic and minor learning disabilities and have learned to be flexible in terms of methods and materials I use, as well as expectations and goals for each student.
I am a graduate of the University of Arizona. I have received a Bachelors Degree in Music Education. I am also a certified teacher in the state of Texas, as well as Arizona. My certification is for Kindergarten through High School, all levels of music. I have a certification to teach general classes at the Elementary Level K-5th grade from Sam Houston University.
I am a jazz pianist and composer. I teach each lesson with a simple to understand, chord and ear training methodology. Vocals and lyric making are only added when a student displays enough competence in piano mechanics and sound structuring.
I have taught public school music (almost all areas: choral/band/keyboard/theory/theater) for grades K-12, and taught privately from ages 5-adult.
Graduated from Montclair State University. I studied piano privately for 14 years and have been playing for 20 years total. I studied classical and jazz with a world renowned pianist for many years but identify as a contemporary/fly finger player.
- Happy, friendly, people person. - Associate in Arts (AA) in Keyboard Technology - Years of education and playing experience in piano. - Offers a variety of approaches towards concepts regarding to piano playing and music theory. - Covers different subjects, with the end result of simultaneously relating each subject for maximum effectiveness.
Every student is very different and has individual strengths and needs. I believe a student needs strong guidance and clarity, but I like to include my student's taste into my the decision making process. Learning how to play piano is a lot of work. Ultimately, I like the learning process to be as rewarding as the results.
My teaching method is to have an understanding of basic music theory and the understanding of the grand scale. What each note means and how many counts to hold each note. Music will involve some basic math. Each student will start off with the Teaching Little Fingers to Play Book by John Thompson with an exercise book, A Dozen A Day Book 1.
My teaching method is based on providing the quickest route for students to play the music that they love, whether they are beginning, have learned by ear, or have learned classically. We will work on a variety of skills that will enable you to learn as quickly as possible, and learn on your own as well.
I believe that music is an essential component for enjoyment and learning throughout our lives. Music not only enriches our creativity, but it also gives us the ability to express ourselves by creating something truly unique. It is no secret that music instruction carries enormous benefits.
I have had professional development in Suzuki, Orff, Kodally, Thompson,Gordon and many other methodolgies. I use a combination of all of them to reach the individual student's needs. My own method picks the most useful from the established methods and makes them practical to the student.
I approach each client with an openness to teach what it is they want. I know that learning any instrument requires thousands of hours of concentrated work and a ton of self-motivation and, in my experience, students that aren't interested in the music won't have that motivation.
I like to base my classes on what my students want to learn. I like to start your first lesson by listening to you sing and seeing what I think you can benefit from working on, and then also going over your own musical goals and dreams. Then I go over what you hope to gain from these lessons.
I am currently a junior at Crown College. I have taught piano for about two years now, primarily with beginner and intermediate students.
I was born in a musician family. My parents are opera singers for 30 years. Since I was 6 I studied music in conservatory. After I graduated from university i studied my second major which is Early Childhood Education. My students are starts playing and reading perfectly in their first 3 months.
