Sarah W.

Modesto, CA

About Sarah

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.

Wonderful teacher!

Sarah is a wonderful teacher! I started from zero and she has walked me through reading music, fretting and playing melodies, and chords. I have learned so much and our lessons have opened up a world of ukulele fun. Between lessons I'm able to continue practicing the exercises, and also try new songs on my own. Sarah is very patient and so encouraging! I always have fun during our lessons! We have our lessons via Skype, which has worked out very well.

Jennifer K.

Modesto, CA

I teach the basics of singing, including breathing techniques and various vocal exercises. I also like to work with students on songs they'd like to learn while integrating other pieces as well.

About Jennifer

My name is Jennifer and I LOVE music. I recently graduated with my Master's degree (MA) in Musicology from the University of Amsterdam. I've taught lessons for about 8 years and I really love getting to share my passion for music with others. I also enjoy helping them to develop their own musical skills and understand and appreciate the importance of music.

I strongly believe that it is never too late to learn a new instrument. Music is a wonderful gift with many power qualities and is meant to be enjoyed by all people.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a very energetic and enthusiastic te
acher. I like to motivate the students and encourage love of music along with learning the basics of music. I believe that it is easier for students to learn music if they are also excited about it.

I strongly encourage asking question. I'll usually ask if the student has any questions. I want to make sure that they are learning things they want to learn in addition to things I want them to learn.

For piano lessons I typically use the Piano Adventury books by Faber and Faber. The books are already neatly divided up into lessons and span various levels. If students have something specific they want to learn I am open to integrating that into lessons as well.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the student to have a piano or keyboard. I also expect them to purchase the books that I suggest.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize mostly in classical music but I also love musical theatre and more popular music.

Lauren G.

Discovery Bay, CA

I teach the basic fundamentals of singing as well as over all coaching for my more experienced students. In lessons, I teach proper breathing technique, stage presence, proper tone placement, as well as proper diction in both classical and popular styles.

About Lauren

-Teach beginners to advance
-Ages 10 and up
-I travel to you

About Lauren:
My name is Lauren G and I am a dynamic, private vocal instructor and performance coach with eight years of formal voice studies and over seven years of voice teaching experience. I majored in vocal performance at Middle Tennessee State University with a minor in psychology. I have performance experience in classical, Broadway and pop/rock styles. In my lessons, I use a natural vocal technique based on the Alexander Method of Teaching comprised of several components which foster vocal health tailored to each indivi
dual student and performer.

*** Lesson Details ***
A typical lesson with me will focus on correct breathing technique as well as properly focusing the tone to achieve sound and volume without pushing the voice. In my lessons, if it hurts to sing, then you're doing it wrong and that is when we stop and fix the issue to gain better technique for performance longevity. Though I am classically trained, I have studied other forms of singing and am very open to whatever my student longs to sing. I am a firm believer that practicing at home is half the journey in achieving one's musical goals. With that in mind, I will provide a homework assignment after every lesson for the student to continue to build on what they learned in session. While I am focused, I also want my students to have fun and that is why I strive for a comfortable, open environment that fosters open communication between teacher and student.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I travel with my keyboard to accommodate those students who don't have a piano.
