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 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.
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.
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.

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've always had a profound interest in learning which has found its form in many different ways. One important thing I've learnt is that learning is a uniquely individual experience. So, I try to structure my teaching style and methods based around the student. Typically I would use our first session to learn about you, your current skills, and where you are starting at.
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 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 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 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.
My students learn to read, interpret, perform and feel music. Only that way they will able to appreciate this beautiful art.
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.
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 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.
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 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 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.
I can teach the basics (embrochure, note reading, fingering and tone) along with other advanced things such as grading and full pieces.
I am a sax player who has been playing for over 10 years and has completed the AMEB exams as well as AmusA Performance.
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.
