Want lessons that will cater to your needs or the needs of your child and not a book?
My Reading and Phonics lessons are made to dazzle and awe your child into an understanding of letters, sounds, and the written page!! I also love to work with teachers when possible and also use placement tests to determine where to start and periodically to know how to continue. (The kids just think they are games).
My Music lessons are designed to foster a love for music and focus on your dream in the music world as well as build knowledge and expertise from that focal point!
Whether it be a specific genre, general, academic repertoire or just wanting to play or sing the songs you enjoy, I have the curriculum and supplemental material to reach your music goal!
Beginner? We can get you started on the right foot! I have experience with adult beginners, seniors and children of all ages. I have special curriculum and activities that enhance interest, reduce stress and help you to maintain what you learn.
Pre-schoolers have a curriculum all their own that teaches music through lovable animal characters with games on tablet, computer and other to teach, reinforce and excite their hearts.
Have some knowledge but just can't play or sing that special song? We can tailor a lesson just for that.
Can you read music but not play on your own? Can you play by ear and not read music? I have experience bridging the gaps.
Is your dream to become a Soloist, harmonizer or karaoke star? Accompany yourself or others or just play for fun? Then why not you and I embark on that exciting journey together!
Is your dream to become a church musician or play for a choir? or Are you already a church musician but need help with a particular song, program or musical?
Worship to Him is the reason that I do what I do!
Try us! You'll be glad you did!!!!
*** Lesson Details ***
I am a very laid back instructor, though the classes are very well structured.
Usually, we progress with a chosen curriculum according to the students music vision and initial overview during the 1st few classes. However, all curriculums are supplemented to enhance student performance and comprehension. Our supplemental material is used to go swifter for material that you grasp well and understand, and slower with more repetition for that that you need more practice, without being monotonous. It is also used to provide appropriate but exciting reinforcement of all material to ensure that material is retained.
We are forever updating material and also incorporate games and enhanced activities to keep lessons interesting and refreshing as well!
I also have experience in music therapy, teaching autistic, ADD, ADHD and those with varying degrees of brain damage.
