Sarah W.

Modesto, CA

About Sarah

I am looking for new students that want to learn music or sing.

I come from the greater Modesto, CA area. I am a veteran music teacher with over 19 years of teaching vocal and instrumental music. I
have taught both in the private and public sectors.

I hold a current music teaching certificate with a BA in Music Education, MA in Elementary Education, and an MA in Reading/Music Focus.

I believe that anyone can learn to sing or play a musical instrument. I am passionate about teaching music and the joy that comes from learning music.

I am experienced in the areas of vocal and instrumental performance through concerts, recitals, musicals, community service, festivals and competitions. Some of my planned musical performances are a Christmas concert, playing and singing in our local mall at Christmas time, and a planned spring recital.

I am a classical and traditional music teacher with many new contemporary styles of teaching music.

My atmosphere of teaching is fun and nurturing!

*** Lesson Details ***
For online lessons, I am currently only teaching Guitar, Voice, Ukulele, Trumpet, and Clarinet.

Lessons are weekly or bi-weekly with a structure lesson, musical games to teach reinforcement and new concepts. I structure my music lessons according to the learning style of each of my students. Patience and understanding my students helps them in their success!
So, there is a lot of praise and encouragement in each lesson. Once a month there is music history that is taught with the lesson and music theory is included in each music lesson.

With each lesson book, there are weekly practice sheets to document daily and weekly practice. Practice is one of the most important keys to learning music. Each student is encouraged to learn one song or musical concept at their own pace.

Every week, I assess each student as they play for me their musical work. I don't expect perfection, but strive for excellence!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Great room w/ baby grand piano and seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide assorted music books for piano, guitar, and band.
I have a great number of recorders with books.
Two music stands, one snare drum with sticks, CD player
I prefer, if I should travel, for my piano students to have their own piano/electric piano or guitar for guitar lessons.
Band: to have their own instrument to learn on and practice at home
Orchestral instruments: the same.

*** Specialties ***
Classical, Christian and contemporary choir, band, and orchestra. Specialize in vocal coaching/voice lessons. Specialize in musical productions in both Christian and contemporary styles.

Kyle C.

Hughson, CA

About Kyle

Hello potential students! I have a B.A. in instrumental music education and composition. I have taught private lessons for over 12 years. Teaching private music lessons is my primary job, so I have mu
ch experience and wisdom compared to teachers who teach "on the side." Students of all ages stay with me a long time because I am very flexible in my teaching and know how to interact with many personalities and learning styles, producing great results and progress. My specialties are piano, woodwinds, and music technology (i.e. recording and production). You can find more information about me and what I do at caseymusicservice´«│com.

Upright Bass · In studio
Kyle has given me contra bass, aka upright bass,weekly lessons from August 2015 through May 2016. I have never played a string instrument prior to this, although I do play piano and have played the flute, bagpipes, and piccolo over the years. I did not need education in reading music.

Kyle was able to take me from sounding like a lower octave version of Jack Benny (a mid-20th century comedian famous for his howlingly horrid violin playing) to a level where I know how to hold the instrument and the bow, the fingerings, bowing technique, and how to get a very respectable sound from the instrument.

He also installed the strings when I received the new instrument, found a manufacturing flaw in the bridge height that the manufacturer subsequently paid to repair, and diagnosed a resonance issue with the instrument that was corrected with a balance weight on the string below the bridge.
