My teaching method revolves around using Orff and Kodaly methods of music pedagogy. During lessons, we will focus on technique and musical awareness. In turn this will give you the ability to learn music that you enjoy at your own pace.
My musical history has elements of classical and jazz (and folk and reggae etc etc) - I personally love to explore all kinds of genres. I am a huge advocate for tailoring a students' learning to the styles they enjoy best, and exploring different musical avenues as the student progresses and becomes curious about different things.
Every student is different. Each class I run is set at the pace of the student and their needs. Playing the piano requires patience and a calmness that is created in my lessons. Helping the student overcome the initial difficulties of the piano is why I enjoy teaching so much.
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.
All levels are welcomed.I believe the goal to succeed is to practice and be passionate about it all the time.
My method of teaching requires me to understand the student in their capabilities and what they want to achieve. My aim is to improve their skills in a safe environment and to elevate their understanding of music, hopefully transforming it into a passion as done to me.
My Brass Major is Trombone, however, I have the qualifications to be able to teach Trumpet, Cornet, Euphonium, French Horn and Saxophone as well. I plan my lessons around the students needs, anything from school band pieces to AMEB exams. I am a Jazz music major, however, I have extensive professional experience in orchestra settings as well.
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 teach according to the students needs, whether you're young or older there is always something you can improve on with music, I teach from a long standing technique based method, the best way to learn is by doing it yourself.
I am a relaxed and encouraging teacher with the ability to teach all beginning and intermediate students, young and old. My knowledge of music education experiences such as AMEB and VCE allow me to coach any student through exams and performances, although I do not believe exams are a must to learn saxophone.
I am outcome driven and enthusiastic towards teaching the saxophone, and would love to teach students of a smilar disposition towards their study. I place a strong emphasis on developing fundamental technical skills, explained simply for all types of learners, as well as instilling a strong sense of musicianship in performance.
I believe in first giving the student the basics of expression and what makes a good performance. Listening is key. Technique comes a close second. Engaging the student with the joy and the fun of playing in creative ways is my way. Just telling what they are doing wrong is just wrong.
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 believe that music is a joy that everyone should be able to experience. It is important for me to listen to what a students musical goals and motivations are and work with the student towards achieving them.
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 am Derrick Obara, my stage name is the Afro-Phonist. I love socializing and getting to know people especially when we relate musically. I am geared towards students who are passionate about music, the must have an aim to why they want to learn music.
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.
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.
I’m not going to program you to read music notations like a computer. I’ll teach you all the correct basics and everything about the gear you want to know about how to play the saxophone and how to become a professional as well.
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.
No one is too late to learn is my motto. You could be a beginner or have been playing a year or two, I can help you pick up your sight-reading as well as develop a nice tone over a period of time. Every lesson I will try work on something new with the student to expose them to sight reading aswell effeciency in learning music. I can teach for leisure or AMEB, and can do theory aswell.
I carefully tailor each lesson to the students needs and supply appropriate learning materials. I balance lessons between technical exercises, studies and pieces.
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 finding that teaching methods vary on the student. So the approach must be varied through theoretical and practical depending on what the students goal is to achieve.

My teaching method varies according to age and personality, but is basically a combination of traditional teaching, playing by ear, learning to read music, and alternative notation. I use many different strategies depending on the situation. Humour plays a large part in my teaching.
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 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.
