Subjects Taught

Piano, Violin

About Me

As certified teacher in three states and over 30 years of music experience, I am comfortable with students of all ages in developing their musicianship and love of musical expression. Playing violin professionally since the age of 16, my performance background includes symphony orchestra, mariachi, acoustic rock, chorus (alto), and various small ensembles. In college, I studied piano and currently play keyboard with a classic rock group.
My overarching goal is to share the benefit of a lifetime of experience with my students so that they will find their own 'voice' in the wide world of music.

*** Lesson Details ***
My approach to teaching is to customize lessons to meet the needs of individual learners and to make learning fun: It is always okay to make mistakes as long as you are willing to do the work to overcome them. I will be there every step of the way to help you meet your musical goals.
The curriculum used will depend on your current level of playing and the particular style of music you are interested in. From that point, I can provide you with basic theory, techniques, and self-selected pieces to guide you towards your personal goal.
It is my hope that our lessons will develop into a lifelong teacher/student relationship: There is nothing that brings me such joy as seeing my students move forward and develop their own independence as a musician.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have my own violin; students must have their own instrument. Violin students that have a piano in their home is preferred but not required.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in working with beginning students to develop basic techniques and notation skills.

Erin W. Chandler, AZ

Subjects Taught

Oboe, Piano

About Me

Music is my passion! I am currently a free-lance musician in the greater Phoenix area, playing oboe with various ensembles such as the Scottsdale Baroque Orchestra and Tempe Symphony Orchestra, and teaching oboe and piano lessons to students around the valley. I also sell oboe reeds, both to my own students, and to students across the country.

I have taught private music lessons for over eight years. My greatest motivation is sharing my love of music. Lessons with me are never boring. I always strive to show my students how exciting and fun mastering an instrument can be. Not every student desires to be a virtuoso, but every student deserves the opportunity to gain a better understanding and love of music and their chosen instrument.

I offer piano lessons for beginner and intermediate students. I have thirteen years of piano training with three different instructors, including Dr. Donald Speer at Western Kentucky University. I use the Bastien beginner and intermediate piano courses. The Hanon book of exercises is used as well once the student is adequately prepared.

I offer oboe and English horn lessons for beginner through advanced students. I hold a bachelor's degree in music performance from Western Kentucky University, where I studied oboe and English horn with Dr. Michele Fiala, and a master's degree in music performance from Arizona State University, where I studied oboe with Martin Schuring. I have given seven solo recitals and have been a soloist with several groups. I have a wide range of ensemble experience, from orchestras to chamber groups. In lessons I use the Gekeler Oboe Method, the Barret etudes, and the Ferling etudes. Various solo material suited for the student's abilities are also employed. Training in reed making is introduced when the student is both adequately prepared and strongly interested.

*** Lesson Details ***
My goals as a teacher are two-fold: first, to guide students in mastering their chosen instrument as easily as possible; and second, to instill and encourage an enduring love and better understanding of music in each student. Weekly lessons are a combination of warm up routines, technical exercises, and performance pieces, with the student's individual strengths and weaknesses in mind. The tone of lessons is always encouraging and lighthearted in an effort to help students avoid continual frustration. I also train students to listen objectively with a discerning ear to their musical efforts, and teach effective, efficient practice methods for success outside of lessons. Learning a musical instrument should be a fun and rewarding experience!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide reed making equipment, and frequently adjust student's reeds during lessons. I bring my oboe, if I feel it is beneficial to the student.

I expect the student to provide a music stand and a fairly quite, uninterrupted location for the lesson. Also, the lessons should take place in a room with good lighting. If the student is a piano student, then they should provide a high quality keyboard or piano.

Broadway Singing, Music Performance, Music Theory, Opera Voice, Piano, Singing

About Me

I am an experienced voice and piano teacher with 20 + years of teaching experience.

I am passionate about teaching, and my experience includes teaching vocal music to elementary school students, voice and piano to college students, and teaching voice and piano to students in my home. I love working with people of all ages.

As a soprano, I have sung professionally with many choral ensembles, and have performed as soloist in recitals and concerts throughout the US. I have appeared in musical theater and opera productions in leading roles. I have also been a church and college choir director, and vocal coach for musical theater.

In addition, I have performed as piano soloist in various settings, and piano accompanist for choirs, singers and instrumentalists in church, contest and concerts.

Currently, I am pursuing a Doctorate in Choral Music at Arizona State University.

Having recently relocated from Minnesota, I would love to establish a studio here where I can share my expertise and passion for music with students. My approach is that music should be fun and satisfying. I want students to have the enjoyment of accomplishing great things, and build on their natural abilities and love of music. I look forward to meeting you, and seeing where your musical talents can take you!

*** Lesson Details ***
Each voice lesson begins with warming up: movement:, stretches, breathing, and relaxation while focusing on good posture. Following that we continue warming up the voice with appropriate vocal exercises. If desired, we can spend time sight singing (reading music). Then we will turn to your chosen piece(s) of music. You could bring in a song or aria of your interest, or I could suggest pieces that I feel suit your voice. Some areas that I like to focus on in are relaxation, posture, breathing, support, use of registers, placement, growing your voice in size and range, intonation (pitch), tone color, clarity and consistency. My ultimate goal is to help students sing with musicality and expressiveness.

For piano, we may begin by working on things like hand position, posture, relaxation of the body and then exercises, including scales and chords. We may also incorporate music theory.
After a warm-up, we will focus on chosen music. I like to use music literature that is appropriate to the student's level, which gives enjoyment, and also increases breadth of knowledge and expertise. For beginning students, there are many good series available that I like to use, such as Bastian or Alfred.

Its very important that students feel comfortable in their lessons. I am sensitive, flexible and open to individual likes and dislikes, and any thoughts or concerns you have. These are your lessons and I am committed to helping you get the most out of them!

I've been a choir conductor and music director on and off since 1973.

I had several piano teachers, one of whom had taken from a concert pianist.

I've been teaching privately for 17 years.

I sing professionally.

Music brings me great joy. It is wonderful to share it with my students.

Amy Z. Avondale, AZ

Subjects Taught

Clarinet, Flute, Piano, Saxophone, Trombone, Trumpet

About Me

Hello there! If you are reading this then you or your child must be interested in learning how to read and play music. I am so excited for the journey you are about to begin!

My name is Amy and I am a certified music teacher. I graduated from Western Michigan University with a degree in instrumental music education, and my primary instrument is clarinet. I have taught instrumental music for 8 years in the Valley.

I enjoy teaching students of all ages and abilities, especially beginners! I teach beginner lessons in piano, and brass instruments, beginner to intermediate level students in woodwinds, and beginner up to advanced high-school level clarinet.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons with me will be tailored to each student's needs and goals, however note and rhythm reading will be a strong component in each lesson - especially for beginners. I have a very laid back and patient personality but I do feel that practice at home is very important and expect it from my students in order to give them the best chance at success.

Students with intermediate or advanced ability on their instrument will have the opportunity to have lessons directed towards specific interests such as preparing for chair placement tests, honor band auditions, or solo and ensemble festivals.

It is extremely important that students taking piano lessons have an instrument to practice at home - a keyboard is fine if an electric or accoustic piano is not available.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a full size (88 key) digital piano with attached pedal in my home studio.

There is a lazyboy and magazines for parents who like to stay for the lessons of their children as well as a table and chairs for those that have work to do while their child is having his/her lesson. :)

*** Travel Equipment ***
I do not travel to student homes for lessons at this time.

*** Specialties ***
Working with beginners of all ages.
