We provide private music lessons to people that are truly interested in learning and are o
ver 14 years old. The first session is a 1/2 hour. It's based on evaluating your skills and also gives you a window as to how I teach. Terms and conditions are discussed and you are given a regularly scheduled lesson time.
If you are a professional person you sometimes have an emergency-you will be given an opportunity to reschedule. Payment is due before the new month begins to keep your lesson time. There are 4 times during the year when you will have an extra lesson in the month. These are free of charge. In the case of adolescent children, 1/2 hour lessons are the norm until the parent and teacher decide that an hour is beneficial to the student's musical growth. Some young students come twice weekly as the repetitive process really is effective for accelerated musical growth.
Voice Student always take 1/2 hour lessons. Be advised, these lessons get right to the point as they are designed to get you in front of an audience ASAP! Know that the great singers of any genre got that way by emulating other great singers! For very young students, the parent takes part in the lesson and reinforces the teachers work when at ho me. You are required to purchase a tune, a metronome, and any necessary texts. the philosophy of deadlines on lesson material, testing, and all that is common in academics, do not apply to my methods. You are expected to spend a small amount of time on a daily basis with your instrument. THe study of music is most successful when taken in short intervals on a daily basis. Unlike most teachers, I encourage the student to conat me whenever anything is in question, and not to wait until their next lesson to have their questions answered. I also give group lessons in groups of 6 students for 8 one hour classes. The themes vary. Music theory, Ensemble Performance, Innovative Musicians in Jazz, Influential Rock Guitartist, Beginning Classical Guitar, Learn to Play Bass, and many more. I have over 40 years experience as a performer, teacher, composer, and businessman in the field of music. I am sure my methods and services will help you to become a better musician. and remember....beginners are always welcome and are given special attention.
