Sheila M.

Scottsdale, AZ

About Sheila

I love teaching music! I have been teaching violin and fiddle for 20years now. I have been a professional violinist for 40years and love to share my experiences and knowledge of music with others. I teach beginners/intermediate and advanced adult students with a complete focus on ear training and learning by ear. I am extremely patient and my students always have a great time learning.

Please understand I only teach adults or kids that are VERY INTERESTED in learning music and violin. And I ONLY teach by EAR :) The easiest way to describe 'learning by ear' is to say that I teach a for
m of the Suzuki Method. I teach the student each note for the piece of music before they leave the lesson, I record it and it is up to the student to practice along with the recording (as opposed to practicing with written music). All of my students that formerly read music only, all said at first that learning by ear would be too difficult for them. But within a weeks time, all my students change their mind and prefer learning by ear.

If you don't wish to take lessons with me, I still plead with you that you take any lessons from anyone and PLAY MUSIC! :) :)

You can see more about me at sheilamaguire.net and read some testimonies from my students.

Looking forward to hearing from you! :)

Sheila was so friendly, and did a great job pushing me to work hard, but in a gentle, friendly way. I had a lot of fun in the lessons! I went in with no real knowledge of the fiddle, and came out with a great experience. I definitely recommend her!

Victor Q.

Phoenix, AZ

I am a string specialist. That means I teach and play violin, viola, cello, double bass, guitar, bass guitar, mandolin, ukulele and piano. I earned B.A. earned from the University of Northern Colorado, Greeley Colorado where I was a double major in classical guitar and double bass. In my senior year I was the recipient of the Annual Concerto Contest where I performed the "Concerto in A Major" on double bass with the University orchestra for the spring concert. I have played in both professional and semi-professional orchestras in Colorado and Arizona. I believe that any student will practice more if he or she likes the music they are playing. Periodically I will ask a student to give me a name of a piece of music that they would like to learn how to play. I notate it for them, often simplifying the rhythm and chords in Finale NotePad and give it to them free of charge. I teach students how to play music on their given instrument.

Victor is an excellent teacher. He teaches music that I am interested in, and tailors lessons to my skill level. He has a strong background in music theory, and has done a great job of helping me grasp concepts that I have never understood before. As an beginning adult student, I could not have found a better teacher.

Brian M.

Tempe, AZ

Students in this area will receive extensive instruction on musicality, the fundamentals of reading/interpreting musical notation/symbols, comfortable and physically healthy approaches to holding the instrument and practicing effective posture, as well as performance techniques. Most beginners will start from the Suzuki series. Lessons are custom tailored and planned according to the individual student and his/her individual needs. What do you want to learn, and what do you hope to gain from our time together? These questions are among my top priorities when starting with a new client. All levels (including advanced) are included in this category (see lessons for Audition Preparation as well).

About Brian

After graduating Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor's Degree in Music Performance (Violin) from the artistically vibrant and widely recognized music program at Central Washington University, I traveled to the nationally recognized Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts at Arizona State University where I am currently in my 2nd year of my Master's Degree in Music. I have been teaching both in-home and in a professional capacity since 2005. Having personally prepared many auditions, I have both experiential and technical advice to offer intermediate to advanced players. Music theory and its ap
plications is another one of my passions and I am always excited to share this knowledge in all instrumental lessons, which include both violin and viola. Lessons through this website will be held at the School of Music at ASU in the practice room facilities which are secured with card-key access, and are very private and comfortable. All styles of playing are welcome! Beginners are usually started on the Suzuki program.
I also have experience teaching at the incredibly successful and internationally acclaimed LindaMood-Bell Learning Processes where I worked with children K-12+ on phonemic awareness and reading comprehension, knowledge which would be a perfect match for anyone looking to enhance their child's reading skills (many of the clients I have worked with were diagnosed with learning abilities before enrolling, and all showed significant progress after completing the program).

I took a series of lessons with Brian and was very pleased. He has both the patience/calm to deal well with young children and the intelligence/scope of knowledge to handle the inquisitive adult. He's polite, accountable, well-spoken and clearly cares about what he does. He's a focus-on-the-positive, technique-intensive teacher - he wants to see you learn, and learn right. I would definitely recommend....
