My teaching approach always considers the specific needs and experience of the student. From the basics in music theory and composition to more advanced subjects, I'll always make sure learning is structured and paced appropriately. You'll learn many of the theoretical aspects of theory/composition as well as growing your own unique approach to learning about and writing music.
As a welcoming and personable coach and mentor, I have a genuine passion for helping people and leaving them happier than before. Outgoing and individualistic, I aim to make lucidity out of chaos from a lifetime of experience as an eccentric performer and musician.
Carolina Brownell Piano Lessons HOW IS THE LESSONS The Classes are individual for all ages, weekly or fortnightly lessons. All students are entitled to a complimentary 30-minute lesson before enrolling at our school and may commence any time throughout the term SHEET MUSIC We are able to print a variety of sheet music on demand.
I believe in helping my students find their own unique voice. In the lesson we will work on exercises to strengthen your voice and boost your confidence as a performer, and apply these exercises practically as we work through a variety of songs of your choosing (with guidance from me). We will sing along with a recording, a cappella and with guitar accompaniment.
Flexible and creative learning with a focus on intuitive and intellectual process in problem finding/problem solving, developing personal practice strategies in self and group learning contexts.
I approach each student by assessing their learning style (visual, aesthetic etc). We have set tasks in place and goals to reach as to build our repertoire and knowledge. In understanding why we do what we do, we can then develop our skill sets more effectively.
I prefer to learn what kind of learner my student is as soon as possible, so I can tailor the teaching towards what works best for them.
My teaching method is face to face. I like to use paper, theory, and techniques that suit the individual. I am a very flexible person and want to make you feel comfortable in the teaching environment. I love singing at the beach, in open outdoor spaces and in professional recording studios.
I will get to know the students level of proficiency and how they best learn and plan the lessons from there. I will set homework which is achievable and therefore allows for the student to stay engaged and enjoying the lessons.
Struggling with your range or endurance vocally? Can't finish your songs or get them to sound as good as they do in your head? I've been there too. I'll come to you or you can come to me, we'll play, enjoy ourselves, come up with a plan and a strategy that suits us; and through mutual hard work, learning will ensue.
I like to keep things quite relaxed and quite fun in the classroom. There will be lots of warm ups and games that everyone will enjoy. My lesson structure generally consists of 50% theory and 50% practical exercises. They all contribute to the student's skills and understanding of different aspects of music.
Classes can have a duration of 30-60 minutes or longer, depending on the student’s needs. I like to mix lessons using four hand pieces from early levels, introducing different styles of music and incorporating theory, technical and sight-reading exercises for a more enjoyable lesson. I delight in restoring a passion for music to the learner.
I plan to teach music theory beginners and to provide them with the knowledge needed to succeed as musicians at a pre-tertiary level, although I am willing to teach all ages regardless of study or schooling. I teach directly and address all difficulties at the root of the problem. All students learn differently, so I aim to teach every individual in a way that works best for them.
I am a teacher who approaches each student differently depending on their goals and requirements. I prefer an environment where the student has a clear idea of what they want to gain out of the lessons so that I can directly address the areas of music theory that they may struggle with.
From the beginning you'll learn how to hold the instrument safely & effectively, to play notes and chords and scales. Then how to read music & play it, understand it & how to make it achievable & enjoyable ! If you are more advanced, you can learn tunes from recordings and from the page. I'll help you arrange & record your music & songs. or Prepare you for Music Examinations & Performing.
I have been teaching singing and piano of all levels and ages over the past 8 years. I find great joy in sharing my enthusiasm and experience as a performer, composer, and educater by guiding and encouraging the musical education of others. I offer my students varied and interesting lessons, focusing on the goals of the individual and the joy of making music.
My classes are based in all the experience I have gathered as a music teacher since I started playing guitar when I was young. My goal every single lesson is to ensure the current topic is understood perfectly. Music is all about practise, and it will be practise every single lesson.
I will quickly establish how it is that you learn and tailor the lessons to you. I will also advise extra homework for you to complete in your own time if you want to practise more.
Not every music student has the same needs. You need a method that has been proven to work over and over again, but you need a professional to identify exactly which method is going to give you the results you are looking for, as fast as possible, so you remain motivated and confident.
My teaching method is entirely dependent on the individual - i.e. what he/she wants to learn, has questions about, doesn't understand, etc. My philosophy of music is a bit like a target - a ring of concentric circles. We start where you're at and push as far out as we can. It's all connected, but I teach in stages, so as to equip the individual at each stage, not only at the end.
Studying music? Feeling stuck on identifying those tricky intervals or seeing the difference between a Locrian mode to a Dorian mode? My name is Sonja and I am currently studying Music at a tertiary level. I can provide help with high school level musical theory, songwriting and learning songs on electric bass guitar.
I put vocal adequacy and capacity as a priority rather than music theory however, I believe that practicing and refining music theory knowledge aids one's true potential and adds to an individuals vocal and creative talent.
I begin by asking for experience, and continue from there. I mainly use theory books and guide through examples and practice tests (later on of course). I can also provide help through aural and sight reading skills, as well as composition.
I have always designed my lessons and tutoring programs for the particular student that I am teaching. Each lesson is personalised and aimed at improving not only performance and understanding, but also to encourage students to be focussed and interested in their work.
Relevance to students needs/wants is the key to successful learning. I also employ strategies such as informal learning and non formal teaching, where students gain responsibility through self empowerment. Diagnostic/ reflective learning, building rapport with students, modifying curriculum/lessons as appropriate.
I teach based on practicality and musicality. I encourage my students to develop their ears. Knowing about frequencies, scales, chord tones, microphones and any other subject of music theory or production will be useless unless you know how to apply them in a musical context.
I make my lessons fun and engaging so that the students also have music as their passion.
I am a firm believer that everyone is inherently musical, and I will strive to help you release any mental and energetic blocks that are holding you back from your full expression. My lessons are tailored to accommodate for your individual needs.
Supportive and understating towards ppl, I dont judge ppl, I respect ppl, Show ppl all kinds of rap from all countries, teach ppl to be creative and patience, nothing happens overnight, Im in it for the long term not just short term and i will do everything i can to bring out the best in ppl, by means things that ppl never knew that they've got it, from music to food to business etc.
My methodology is European/Italian/Neapolitan. My piano school belongs to the Thalberg piano approach. The piano lesson, suitable for leisure or profession, goes for half an hour. My composition school is European based, focused on analysis of J.S.Bach's works. The composition lesson will be based on students' needs.
