Bass Guitar, Flute, Guitar, Music Recording, Music Theory, Songwriting
I have been a working musician and occasional private music teacher for over 40 years. During that time I had a career in the professional audio and video industry, during which I learned how to successfully deal with people. I recently returned to school and completed a Bachelor of Music in Music Education degree at CSU Sacramento. My goal is to bring excitement and enthusiasm for music and playing an instrument to my students, and to create musicians who will make and enjoy music throughout their lives. I play guitar, bass guitar and flute, and enjoy teaching all of them to all age groups.
*** Lesson Details ***
Playing music is supposed to be fun. Lessons include playing, so they should be fun as well. My lessons are both focused and fun. I believe you get out of music what you put in. If a student doesn't practice in between lessons, I will know. If a student does practice, I will know that as well. My lessons stress not only what to practice, but how. In 3-6 months, the beginning student can expect to be able to make a pleasing sound on the instrument, and be able to play beginning repertoire. Most importantly, the student will be able to play well enough to enjoy the instrument, which inevitably leads to more productive practice and continued improvement. This continued improvement is what lessons are all about.
*** Travel Equipment ***
If I travel to a student's home, I will bring my instrument only. I expect the student to provide all other equipment necessary for the lesson.
*** Specialties ***
Folk guitar, rock and roll and blues bass, classical flute, analog and digital recording
Flute, Music Performance, Music Theory
I've played flute since the day I fell in love with it. When I was a little girl I saw the flute for the first time and wanted to play it ever since. I had a rough start in learning how to play the flute but over the past 13 years I've developed enough skill to be an advanced musician.
When I first started I had private tutors to teach me how to play. Then I played in elementary, middle, and high school concert band. At Sacramento State, I've performed with the Symphonic Wind Ensemble, Marching Band, Concert Band, and Symphony Orchestra.
I'm currently an undergraduate student at Sacramento State majoring in Music Education & Performance in flute. This is my fourth year and I've already learned much about many instruments other than the flute. I've learned to play piano, trumpet, violin, cello, and most of the other instrument families. The cello was especially fun to learn because I love the deep rich sound it creates.
As a teacher, I've had two years of experience with people of different ages but I like teaching younger children the best. I believe in giving children the chance to enjoy and love music to the fullest while still learning the proper way to play beautifully. Every student is different so I patiently work at everyone's various paces. And if some students have more difficulty with the instrument than other students, then I'll go as slowly as they need in order for them to understand the first step before moving on to the next. My hope is that every person can experience music to the fullest.
*** Lesson Details ***
If you have never held an instrument before then I'll go over all the basics before even playing the instrument. The instrument should be handled carefully and with proper care to make sure it stays in good shape.
Once we got all these basics down, we'll play music! Starting with tonal exercises, scales, short pieces, and maybe even fun pop music that the student likes. It all depends on the students' preference and progress.
*** Studio Equipment ***
Sacramento State - music rooms - stand, piano, bench, extra chair.
*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect my students to already have their instrument or get a rental. I'll provide a copy of the music that we'll be going over but they should purchase the book themselves when they get the chance.
*** Specialties ***
Classical, Pop music
Bass Clarinet, Clarinet, Flute, Guitar, Music Theory, Piano
I have been taking music lessons since I was five. It brought so much joy to my family and I grew to have a passion for instruments and the beautiful noise that they bring.
I started teaching lessons in 2002, and in 2010 I became a teacher at Boys and Girls Club. I taught any musical instrument the kids could bring from school along with theory lessons. I believe that through musical theory and composition kids get a chance to not just play any instrument but also understand how the music is made and why certain symbols mean different things. They learn to read music and understand it, which has always brought my students great excitement when they can read music better than anyone in their bands and be the first to raise their hand.
I prefer to teach through what the student is interested in and learn through encouragement. I had one of the best music teachers who always knew how to bring the best out of a student and bring out their talent, I continue to strive to do the same with my students today.
I always put on a Spring and or Christmas Recital for my students. It gives the students as well as the parents a chance to show off everything they've learned that year and enjoy the talents of all the students who participate.
I hope to hear from you soon for a lesson!!!
"Steven is very professional and extremely helpful. He always has a smile on and is serious about helping you phrase the music. I would highly recommend him to anyone."
"It's been really exciting so far! Jordan has been so helpful, so knowledgeable. I could not have found a better instructor and I'm getting better and better every day."
"My daughter's wedding was weeks away and I had never been able to dance a step. With Jenny's help, I came further than ever before in such short time in any subject."
