I do like to incorporate music theory in my lessons so that students can understand how songs work with chords, the structure of the song as well as playing stylistically and with emotion.
My teaching methods are based on the needs of my clients. I follow prescribed curriculums for school children or subject music at institutions or can adapt to the needs of Uncle Ben who always wanted to learn how to play the sax... People have different ways of learning so I try to adapt to reach the best outcome.
My teaching method is geared at creating fun and engaging lesson for my students. As the majority of my students attend primary school, we often play songs that are known and therefore is relevant and interesting. Setting small yet acheivable goals is also important, whether thats to practice one a week or perform for their family.
I aim for students to develop a good technique on their instrument first of all as this is an important foundation. Then I get students to start playing music they love as soon as possible. Being able to use their ears is very important too.
My lessons are fun and as casual as possible. Depending on your goal in studying with me I will design your lessons so we reach that goal while working at a pace most suitable for you. From kids participating in school band programs to adults and teens wanting to learn Jazz, Blues or Pop I will create individual lesson plans to suite your learning style. AMEB on request.
Individual students deserve individual curriculum for teaching; I feel it is important to have a student first excited and engaged before extensive theory.
Tailor Made Lessons Just For You. I want you to enjoy your music. What style of music do you like ? Let’s play it together ! Funk, jazz, rock, classical, blues, dance, country – hey, let’s learn some Christmas Carols with a reggae or polka feel if you would prefer. Learning to “play by ear” is just as important as “reading the notes”.
I adapt each lesson to the abilities and needs of the individual student and what they wish to achieve - I tend to use each piece the student learns as a stepping stone in learning the techniques that they will eventually use to teach themselves.
My teaching methods will follow on from what my teachers and tutors have applied on me previously. I’m motivating and always please to have my students feel like they have learned something after a lesson from me. Most of the lesson will be practical with some theory to be taught.
I offer private tutoring as well as small session tutoring for band camps / workshops. I am able to teach AMEB content if you / your child wishes to sit exams. I teach half-hour lessons and understand that each student is unique and will have their own way of learning.
I base my lessons around helping a student first develop the fundamentals of the Saxophone such as Scales, Arpeggios, Breathing Technique and playing technique. When a student wants to consider going to advanced levels, I will also provide advice on mouthpieces, saxophones and other equipment that is necessary to go beyond the plateau that basic equipment can allow.
I base my teaching and tutoring on the individual needs of the student. I like to use a variety of teaching styles and methodologies including visual, experimental, logical, and practical (hands on). I will tailor my lessons to fit what you want to learn. I have some experience teaching students who rate mildly on the autism spectrum, have OCD, ADHD, and Asperger’s syndrome.
I keep trying different methods until I find a window of learning that works for the individual student. My preferred approach is to build a trusting relationship rapport with the student as a person, leading to rapport. Any child can learn when they feel safe, relaxed and motivated.
I plan my classes according to the specific needs and desires of the student. I like to establish a relaxed and welcoming environment where students are able to comfortably communicate and feel they are achieving something new each lesson. I have found it is effective to introduce music theory into lessons as soon as a basic understanding of the instrument has been achieved.
I taylor my teaching method to each individual student and their learning needs.
I have been teaching music for over 25 years. I love what I do. I have taught from my house, in studios and at schools. Teaching all ages and all genres. Lessons are catered to the student depending on what their needs are.
I teach the Joe Allard method of a "no pressure" embouchure. For jazz improvisation I teach the chord/scale method and analysis of past and present saxophone masters.
Lessons will go for 30 minutes and will cover a variety of styles and techniques. I normally teach towards the AMEB exam but am happy to look at other options. My lessons are best for Beginner to intermediate students, I can cater towards advanced saxophone students.
I can teach the basics (embrochure, note reading, fingering and tone) along with other advanced things such as grading and full pieces.
My method of teaching is student based learning. I will adjust my resources and teaching technique to suit the type of learner my student is. I enjoy working with students to get the best possible outcome. The development of my student is my number one priority.
My teaching method is based on the student - how fast they can learn, how easily they pick it up. I've taught kids with down syndrome to simply my friends wanting to learn a few notes. I am simply just a Uni student, looking to give some lessons on the side, and share my knowledge and love for music.
As a music teacher I am responsible for instructing students with the skills they will need to become successful musicians in their own right. This includes the basics of teaching how to play an instrument, as well as fundamental concepts such as tempo, pitch and rhythm.
I have had no teaching experience before but I believe and my piano teacher believes I will make a great teacher for younger children or beginner pianist, saxophonist, cellists and guitarists to help get them kick started on their musical journey.
I try and make my lessons as engaing and friendly as possible to inspire my students to their full potential. Beginners are a speciality, however, I have experience in teaching all ages and all skill levels. I tairlor make each lesson based on the students needs and creative passions.
I will adjust the difficulty and strictness of the lessons to the student- I can offer: -a fun introduction to Clarinet or Saxophone -improvement in tone quality and technical ability -improvement in aural ability -understanding of the artistic form of music -understanding of the basic theories of music -understanding of the encoded emotions hidden past the black and white dots on the...
First of all I always find out what kind of music is my student actualy interested in so then I can focus their lessons on that particular style whatever it might be. Some students just want to know chords and strumming patterns. Some of them are interested in finger-picking and some of them might want to learn the solo guitar. You name it I teach it.
I am a sax player who has been playing for over 10 years and has completed the AMEB exams as well as AmusA Performance.
I love music and I love teaching, so what better career then being a music teacher? I've been playing music since I could walk, and believe it's a unique way of expression.
My way of teaching is to ask the student what they feel like they want to learn or work on. I'll then teach them their desired concepts and I will ask them to play or do exercises to get the students to fully understand what they want to learn.
