I am excited for you to start in a new direction with music. In order to ensure that you or your child gets the most effective and creative teaching possible; your lessons will be constructed with a simple to follow format. This will enable the student to follow through when practicing and be able to advance quickly. I am all about developing a new generation of music-minded students who get to balance education with all the fun and awesomeness of being in a great jam session alone or with others. I have an enthusiasm for music that is infectious. I teach with humor and analogies. I use all the experiences and techniques to implement a personalized program for my students. From beginner to master studies. I believe the transfer of musical knowledge is a profound commitment that will help my students in the true enjoyment of their instrument and a hobby to last a lifetime. I can hear someone play and watch their fingers and prescribe the correct routine and pieces to help them progress quickly.
About Teresa A.

Hi There Music Minded Friend, I am always excited to meet someone who is wanting to learn music. I find it interesting to hear what pieces you want to play and how you got to this point of searching for the right teacher. Teaching music is more about searching and unlocking the magic in my students than it is about me. I am the conduit by which you start on this slightly spiritual but very much remarkable experience in playing music. I am a chameleon in that my teaching is a guided tour of music in whatever genre and style you want to learn. I love music theory and music history and will explain why things are such and so forth as you develop more skills. I teach with a chord approach for those who want to play their favorite songs asap or I can teach the most difficult classical pieces. It's all about what you would like to do. Even if you don't know, I can hear patterns in your playing and make recommendations to develop the type of technique you naturally have. I teach in 30 to 90 minute sessions as well as offering group online classic-rock music theory, history and music theory game sessions. There is a discount for multiple lessons scheduled. I use the latest Apps for online lessons ‘Rock out loud’ which gives a superb sound and has so many features perfectly designed for music lessons. Zoom is designed for board meetings and power point presentations. That is not what we do. I use other Online tools to make lesson assignments easy to review and to new Apps make it fun to record practice and share with me and other students. My hopes are the same as yours: that you start and continue in the lovely world of music with confidence and me showing you the quickest route to your music success and confidence. . Regards, Teresa
