About Patrick

Hi there, my name is Patrick, and I am now a new resident of the Asheville area. I am a music teacher of Trumpet, Piano, Voice and Sound Recording with more than 20 plus years of experience. Below, I relate some of my experiences and philosophies as a teacher of music since 2002.

*** Lesson Details ***
Trumpet Lessons
I have worked with adults and children, with beginners, and with more experienced players looking for a push or a new direction. I have developed many different teaching methods based on what each of my students wants to get out of lessons. The heart of most lessons I teac
h is learning to play or understand songs. Usually, I rely on my students to select the songs they wish to study, which I then transcribe to make personal arrangements fitted to their abilities. Of course, I will suggest or recommend songs at times. I also supply relevant exercises and music theory to accelerate the learning process.

Piano Lessons
I differentiate between concepts and skills, while stressing the importance of mastering both. As important as it is to understand the intervalic relationships in something like the major scale, this knowledge does little for the pianist if she or he cannot pick out the notes to the different scales in real time. In observing that each person demonstrates unique learning patterns and abilities, I have learned that some people will come to understand the conceptual through mastery of memorized tasks while some will succeed with technical mastery only after achieving some conceptual understanding.
Voice Lessons
Having first begun singing at 22 years old, I know first hand that it’s never to late to start singing. Having some experience in school but not fully as a professional till in my 20′s, I have learned from some of the top professionals in the South Florida area. My first vocal lessons was with Gloria Estefan’s back up singer Jon Secada. Jon has his first hit “Just Another Day” that stayed at #1 for several weeks. His one lesson really helped me use singing in my gigging around town. From that time on, I have used this technique for all my students. focusing on JUST BREATHING, has helped many of my students.

Teaching Sound Recording
Working in the early 1980s with recorded music and computers, I was introduced to the new wave of recording at its birth. At Miami Dade Community College, I taught and assisted students in Composition, Sound Development, and Sound Recording using Mac computers and PC’s. As of this day, I personally teach recording in Logic Pro, Bias Peak and Mastering using Waves plug ins and having finished products in Mp4 format and or CD’s.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Mac with logic pro software instruments, piano seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
expect students to provide paper and pencil and put in practice time on their respected instruments at least 30 min a week

*** Specialties ***
Alfred,Hanon,Rubank Advanced Method for instruments.

Hello music world this is Tino b here! I want to let everyone out there who is interested in taking their music to the next level and is searching for someone to help them do so, well look no further Patrick Lopez can help you do so. My first
lesson with him gave me my confidence back and has me producing music on a totally different/higher level.
Better writing and music composition is what im learning,
how to listen to today's music melodies and transform them into a sound of my own. Check him out!

Heather C.

Charlotte, NC

About Heather

Teaching violin has been a rewarding experience for myself and my students! Using the Suzuki method, students are able to play the violin at young ages which is great for brain development, learning to control sounds, and also learning to be disciplined in as as they learn to practice in small amounts! The Suzuki method is a great starting point, but other methods are also fun: Mark O'Conner, All for Strings, Essentials for Strings, Sassmanshaus, etc.

Leon Y.

Charlotte, NC

About Leon

Hi there,

My name is Leon and I've been teaching various subject for many years now. Over the years of teaching and through students that I've had, I realized that each student is different so I cater a customized learning plan to each student based on mutual preference and learning needs.

For all the subjects I teach, I have the credentials (certificates, standardized testing results) to prove that I understand the material. But that's not the whole story! Any teacher will tell you just because you KNOW the material, doesn't mean you can TEACH that material. That's where my teaching exp
erience along with my background in Learning Psychology comes into play.

Learning whether to reach a goal or enrich our passions is a lifelong journey. I look forward to walking together and discovering new heights :)

Jonathan teaches my daughter and she has enjoyed her first set of lessons from him so far. She is in orchestra at her Middle School so the summer lessons have helped her improve her technique and when I listen to her practice I have noticed improvement in the sound. Scheduling was easy and he is flexible. It has been a great experience thus far.
