it was my daughters first lesson James was awesome! We will definitely be going back for more lessons!
Ive been taking guitar lessons with Kyle now for about 8-9 months and its been great. Highly recommend doing it if your on the fence. I started learning guitar on nothing more than a whim and now I've progressed beyond what i though i would be at this point. Kyle is flexible at catering to what ever music style you are familiar with or like it just so happens we have similar taste so that was an added bonus.
Julie has been giving my 10yr old son Saxophone lessons, his skills have been improving & he said she is nice and helpful.
I believe my educational background gave me opportunities that many other music educators did not have. My two bachelors degrees and countless hours of experience lend to a teacher that knows what's best for you or your child.
I would like to start off by saying, I was very nervous about hiring a tutor for my first grader! I wasn't sure about the dynamics of my daughter with someone she didn't know in our home working on "school stuff" that was already a topic of anxiety. But all that went out the window when we met Matt! My husband and I sat at the table with Matt and my daughter and presented her strengths and weaknesses. Matt jumped RIGHT IN and picked up on exactly what she needed help with within minutes. He kept it fun and exciting for her, even when she started to get tired. He used a calm voice and steady lessons to keep her engaged and LEARNING. Matt came right down to a first graders level and used simple words and instruction. After only two hours and the end of our session, she was mocking Matt's instruction and repeating numbers and sequences to her dad and I with confidence! Matt continued to encourage her through out the lesson and kept thing light and humorous. Evee was laughing and smiling with him from the first moment. My daughter is quite shy around strangers and by the time Matt left, out daughter not only shook his hand, but gave him a giant hug and asked me when he was coming back again. Matt is an amazing tutor and I would very HIGHLY recommend him to any parent looking for the extra help. He was energetic and made learning fun for my daughter. After only two hours, she had A LOT more confidence about Math and numbers and coins. Without any hesitation, I would tell any parent to not be nervous about hiring a tutor, and to feel assured and relaxed to hire Matt. There is not a single thing I would critique about his lesson or his ability to work with a 7 year old. He got right down to work and didn't waste a single moment of time. His lessons were full and easy-going and targeted our specific area of need. My husband and I absolutely loved working with Matt, he was an absolute pleasure. I would highly recommend him to any one! Thank you Matt and WyzAnt for putting our fears at ease and helping my daughter get up to par! Confidence in school work for my daughter is PRICELESS to me and I have Matt and WyzAnt to thank for taking a lot of the fear and panic out of getting there ourselves. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
My teaching experience in a private music lesson format exceeds 20 years. I have background, education, and experience to teach students of various ages, learning abilities/disabilities, and who have varying musical taste (classical, jazz, pop, blues, etc.). I strive to meet each student at their level and help them set and work toward both small and long term goals (personally or professionally).
I give private lessons on clarinet, saxophone, flute, music theory, music composition, and music appreciation. Students have the option of taking lessons on an individual basis or in group lessons. I prefer teaching online. However, I will also teach in my home studio. My love for music began in the 7th grade, which is when I first began playing the clarinet. After one year of playing in the junior high band, I entered the Annual Solo and Ensemble Contest and received a superior rating for my solo performance. I have taught students from 5th grade through 12th grade in public and private schools, as well as college and adult students throughout my career. I love to see progress and satisfaction in my students as they become more skilled in their music endeavors.
I love to teach and love working with people! I have twenty years of teaching experience.
I teach music lessons to students of all ages. This includes saxophone, improvisation (all instruments) and music theory ( any level to musicians or non musicians ) These lessons can take place in person or via Skype. Please specify in your quote request I am trained in classical and jazz music with a masters in saxophone performance. My articles on saxophone performance have been published in the US, UK, Canada, Spain, France, and Australia.
