About: Now available are:
Piano lessons (all ages)
- These can potentially include instruction in composition, music theory, rhythm, math tutoring, voice lessons for kids, adult instruction on professional classical piano training, group lessons, and music history instruction.
- Lessons that encourage kids to read. These lessons require the purchase of EYEQ software (runs about $180), which is a software program designed to enhance speed reading and brain activity, as well as laptop brought to each lesson with Microsoft Word installed. Last, these lessons require the purchase of at least 15 books per year, and the purchase of the first 15 books during the first lesson. The first lesson gets the kid started on one book for the first week by assigning a small amount of homework and spends the time teaching the kid organizational techniques that will get them reading 15 per year or more on their own by creating a folder under "My Documents" that is titled "Book Reviews" and creating a word document for each book they wish to read by the end of this year. We will spend the lesson going over the organization first and talking about Eye Q. If there is any time left, we will read together and make notes on the word document of their first book they wish to read. The point of reading with them is to teach them how to make good notes, so they aren't typing too much stuff and slowing down, and so that they are typing what they might use as an adult later on.
- The reading lessons can be booked alongside organization lessons for all ages that involve the use of the "My Documents" folder. These lessons include supervision in clearing out this folder, re-organizing it, and setting it up so that this folder is geared to fit the student's long term goals in a more productive manner.
- Math tutoring lessons can be booked although I will do not have time to study Math on my free time right now. I made A's in every math class I've ever taken, including university level courses and have gotten children ages three to seven to understand fully the concept behind simple multiplication and division by using music to teach math. These kids start by dividing 4 by 2, 8 by 4, etc. and multiplying 2 x 2, 4, 4 x 4, 4 x 1 by learning musical rhythms. This really provides an edge in math class for kindergarten students and can help young kids who are struggling in math.
