Patrick L.

Arden, NC

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!

In addition to earning degrees in music from San Francisco State University (B.M.) and The University of North Texas (M.M.) I have completed the teacher education program at Old Dominion University.

Mr. Becker is fantastic. My son has Asperger's and Phil was wonderfully patient. He often adapted the lesson based on my son's focus. Mr. Becker pushed my son to learn and excel but only as much as he could take without getting frustrated. In a short time, he learned the horn a did really well. I was very pleased and would definitely recommend Phil Becker to anyone.

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.

Referred to Jon by a friend. I knew within 2 minutes of meeting him we were going to be happy with our choice. I love to listen in while he is instructing my granddaughter. He is so patient and kind but yet firm enough to manage a beginning student and keep them motivated. My 12 year old granddaughter practices every day without prompting because he advised her that was an expectation. I would highly recommend him!

John B.

Charlotte, NC

About John

Hello!
My name is John B. I can't wait to meet you and introduce you to the wonderful world of music!

I have been involved with music since my teen years. I have had a lot of fun in my life playing various musical instruments in school bands, local and regional talent shows and festivals. I am a founding member of a Charlotte based popular local Cajun Band - "Carolina Gator Gumbo" and performed on stage for 12 years. I appeared on CBS Nationwide Network and local TV, Radio, and done multiple studio recordings. I have performed in Bluegrass and Old Time Bands as well as Swing/Jazz
Bands.

I would love to introduce you to music so you can begin to have fun too - whether playing for your own pleasure, with your friends - or as a career. I hope to hear from you soon so we can discuss your goals.

I've been teaching private lessons part time off and on since 1971. My passion is to help my students read music and to play guitar, dobro or mandolin as well as other instruments. I earned an AFA in Music from Central Piedmont Community College. I'm a patient and flexible person and my teaching style is coaching and encouraging and fun!

I use various methods of teaching in my one on one lessons including books, handouts, internet sources, and smart phone technology and apps. I do my best to tailor lessons to suit your individual needs. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

I met John Bishop while playing in a band. He added a lot of musical expertise and experience to our group. John has experience being lead singer, lead guitar, and upright bass player, as well as playing other instruments.
Because of his love of playing and teaching, John pursued a full Music Degree from Central Piedmont music department in North Carolina, and is set to be a full time teacher. His studies also included theory and composition, and performance.
As John's student I found him to be attentive to the musical needs of each student. He teaches each student the appropriate techniques for the type of music they wish to learn, and the style of music they enjoy.
I would like to recommend John as a long term teacher for the younger students, and as a very capable and fun teacher for adults as well. John also is able to recommend places to develop your playing as a member of music groups, and camps, and other fun venues to help further develop your musicianship.
