Eric is my son's drum instructor. He just barely turned 7, and struggles with focus and attention. To help him with this, I thought learning to read music and play an instrument would be quite beneficial. We first tried violin: He cried every time driving to lessons, so that ended fast. Then I thought piano, in our home. That idea didn't work either. Now we are with Eric, and my little guy is progressing. He likes Eric, which is (more than) half the battle.
Eric really does customize his lessons based on progress. He's great with my son, and makes it fun for him. He encourages him to practice at home every day, and pays close attention to the progress he makes each week. Eric also pays close attention to form, such as foot placement on the pedals, and obviously where his little hands should be, and remain, while playing.
Alex now is able to read (beginning) sheet music, and is working on his coordination, too. As his mom, I really believe this has turned out very well! We've been in lessons now for almost 2 months, which is much longer than violin and piano lasted. I can already tell my son will stay with it.
It's exciting for me to see the progress he's making. Each week, he seems to be more focused and stays on task. Of course he still has a ways to go for his age. But again, Eric is really patient, kind, supportive and wonderful with Alex.

Nicolle A.

Sandy, UT

About Nicolle

At the age of 3, I began playing the violin and was taught through the Suzuki Method. Before ever learning to read a note, I learned to play by ear- learning to listen and imitate, much as a child learns to imitate sounds and speak before learning the letters of the alphabet. This ear training, in combination with note reading and other techniques, created the groundwork for the rest of my life as a musician!

The moment that would change my life as a musician came at age 12 while performing with Disney's Young Musicians Symphony Orchestra in Chicago. We had the opportunity to perform wit
h violinist Vanessa Mae. I had never seen someone that could inspire so much electric energy and, at the same time, put such tender, heartfelt emotion into every note. A new fire and zeal for music was born in me that I can never forget!

That passion for music has driven me to reach for every performance and training opportunity possible and to help others do the same. In completing my bachelor's degree in Viola Performance at the Jacob's School of Music at Indiana University, I brushed shoulders with mentors who not only shaped me as a performing musician but also as a teacher. Participating in the Suzuki Pedagogy program provided the ultimate hands-on opportunity to teach, alongside other professionals, and mold beginning violinists in their first steps.

I have been teaching privately for the past 10 years, helping beginning through advanced students ranging in age from 4 to 52. It's been unbelievably rewarding watching each student's life change with music. My young beginners love the creative outlet that playing the violin and viola provides. The discipline they develop in learning to play crosses musical boundaries and can be seen in their schoolwork and other daily routines. My adult students love the opportunity to begin the musical journey they had only dreamed of in the past; or, the chance to "dust off" their instruments that they put by the wayside as a child. Equally rewarding is teaching those students with fundamentals already in place to stretch and turn their technique into expressive, musical lines!

I love the opportunity to get to know the unique personalities and styles of EACH of my students and to help them put this qualities into their playing! Let me help you discover the musician waiting to come out in you!...

*** Lesson Details ***
I teach 30 minute, 45 minute, and 1 hour lessons. (For students younger than 8 years of age, 30 minute or 45 minute lessons are recommended.) Each of my lessons is taught one-on-one in my in-home studio.

I teach a combination of the Suzuki Method and traditional styles. The Suzuki Method creates a strong technical foundation to build upon while also training the ear to work independently of note reading. I combine this method with a more traditional approach as I feel it important for the student's involvement and enjoyment to play recognizable tunes.

What to expect in a lesson:

- Learning to correctly hold the violin/viola and bow with proper position
- Learning the names of notes and placement of fingers
- Note and rhythm training/reading; key and time signature training
- Ear training
- Beginning level Suzuki and traditional pieces

- Ensuring that proper positioning and posture is upheld
- Scale and rhythm training; key and time signature training
- Ear training
- Intermediate level Suzuki and traditional pieces
- Learning shifting exercises and vibrato

- Scale and rhythm training exercises/etudes
- Ear training
- Advanced level Suzuki pieces and/or traditional and other classical pieces

For the first lesson:

Beginners: Please bring your violin (appropriate for your size), bow, shoulder rest, Suzuki Volume 1 with CD, notepad, and folder.

Intermediate-Advanced: Please bring your violin, bow, shoulder rest, notepad, folder, and your most recently performed/polished piece.

Parental involvement in younger students' lessons and at-home practicing is HIGHLY encouraged! (For those students 8 years of age or younger, parents are REQUIRED to be at every lesson!)

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano, Violin/Viola (for teacher use), music stand, metronome, recording device, laptop

Megan C.

Midvale, UT

About Megan

My name is Megan, and I love teaching guitar lessons! I originally got my bachelor's degree from the University of Utah in Elementary Education. I taught 6th grade for a couple of years, and then went on to teach guitar classes at a private school for another couple of years. At this school, I directed the classical guitar ensemble, and had children from 5-14 playing challenging music together. I started slowly taking on private students in my spare time, and my business has grown, so that now it's all I do!
I was a music major before I switched over to Elementary Ed. I have experience in
playing in groups, solo, composition, as well as the fundamentals of different styles of playing. I specialize in teaching children, but of course love to teach adults as well. I can teach folk, blues, classical, and the music theory behind soloing in any style.
My passion for music, and knowledge of how we all learn make me very capable of guiding you toward your own musical goals.

Megan is a great choice for those wanting to learn classical guitar or popular music. She lets you choose music that's interesting to you and teaches music reading/theory in a fun way. She's way better than that old piano teacher you used to have!

Megan is is such a great teacher! I personally take lessons from her and am so impressed with her. I have had teachers that are really good at their instrument, but cannot communicate and teach well. Megan has a teaching degree from the University of Utah, so she really knows how to teach. She is so good at the guitar and can teach anything you want to learn. She is fun, kind and understanding. Take lessons from her!

Tips for Singing: Why Practicing Scales Matters
It's a common misconception that singers and instrumentalists are two completely different types of musicians. They're actually much more alike than you might think!

Less publicly, but equally common, are singers who wrong-foot themselves with inappropriate repertoire at local singing competitions and music festivals. They might pick
