Here'sWhat "Lessons-Your-Way" Means
GET READY TO LEARN
Lessons are "go at your own pace". You can take it easy and have fun with music, or
I believe learning music should be for enjoyment and fun. 🤘🙂👍So if you don't want to practice
Maybe you're an adult with a full schedule, I'm not gonna make you practice 2 hours a day, studying scales and chords to get you ready for music tests. Get in whatever amounts of practice you can, some weeks more, some weeks less, and when we get together in class, we'll grind hard on the practice that needs to be done. You'll do great. 🙂👍
Lets say you're an aspiring musician and you know that's what you want to do. you'll be signed up for the formal level-based curriculum, and I'm gonna help you get to the point where you're practice 5 hours a day
Who's to say you're not a help with preparing for upcoming auditions, work on songs for your school band
I love to work with seniors as well. Maybe you've always wanted to learn an instrument, or maybe you took lessons when you were younger and you want to get good again.
Ever wish you could sing better at Karaoke, you can hire me just to learn 3 or 4 songs. I'll teach you about tons of actual vocal techniques, that help everyday people sound like the stars

Online lessons are for you. Super flexible scheduling. Do a lesson when it's convenient for you. Take lessons anywhere, at home or at the office. Bi-weekly, once a month, seasonal, everything's possible with online lessons.No obligations take just one lesson if that's what you need. And perhaps best of all, with online lessons you can now learn music at a fraction of the cost of the old style of music lessons.
My standardized curriculum is very strict and productive. But over the last 11 years of teaching music I've learned that not every student can practice 7 hours a day, and wants to be the next Mozart. Some people just want to pick up the guitar and play a Beatles song that they loved their whole life. Theres we're my curriculum caters. It has all strict technical practices and classical repertoire of the toughest teachers. While simultaneously being flexible enough for a teacher to
I also know that the majority of my students are not planning to become professional musicians. So I teach my students what they want to learn, based on their interests, goals, and intentions. Then I just fill in the blanks with standard music curriculum. 😉
A a recreational musician, someone that just wants to learn to play some songs on instrument, have fun with music, brush up on some things I learned in the past comma play a nice song for someone they care about.
Learning example the song they want and the Styles they like. As it progressed and get better certainly they can tap into the resources are as teachers have and get some of those strict and stringent music instructions that do allow a student to excel at their instrument, then at any time switch back over into a nice easy song and experience the joy of music.
On the other hand. Someone coming to us looking for formal music training to become the Next Mozart. To play professionally as a musician. To compose music in all fields. To start a band and go on tour (continue listing professional musician jobs) This person can walk through our doors and be immersed in a world of diligent and supportive music education. Surrounded by our cutting edge and fully equipped classrooms, music computer labs, recording studios, and a gambit of tools for musicians.
What kind of musician do you want to be?
Musicianship Levels Explained
My music lessons incorporate a level-based curriculum. Meaning each student will be assessed and designated a level (i.e. Guitar Musicianship level 2) from there they'll progress through the next levels. Each level goes at your own pace. There designed to be completed in 3 to 9 months. At the beginning of each level students will receive a list of skills, tasks, goals, and other requirements that need to be passed in order to move on to the next level.
The Musicianship Levels help students to see their progress (like earning belts in karate). Throughout each level there will be tests and even report cards with grades.
Level 1 starts with the basics of the instrument, simplified songs and reading music. Later levels continue to develop and strengthen those skills, plus add new ones. Some levels contain certain milestones such as learn to repair your own instruments - (level 3), composing - (level 4), and get paying gigs – (level 6 & 7). By the time a student reaches levels 8, 9, and 10 they’ll be learning about the music business, recording, and will actually begin taking on their own students.
When the student has completed the course material, and the teacher feels that they have sufficient knowledge of the level's skills, the teacher will allow the student to take a final examination and submit their jury performance. When a student passes the Final and Jury Performance, they will be awarded a certificate of completion, as well as any other awards, special merits, and/or commendations earned throughout that level.
Throughout each level there will be tests, grades and report cards to monitor and motivate. higher grades can earn students awards Such as, commendations, special merits, prizes, ribbons, and featured performances.
All Aspects of our lessons will be graded. By seeing a grade to the level of completion, the students will know how they are doing in their lessons, and the grades keep progress moving forward fast. Students are practicing every week because every week is graded.
Thank you for your interest in my curriculum. There are still many more details that I would like to explain here, but Im not able because many of my curriculum methods and devices are patended and copyrighted, the only way to find out more about them… is to sign up for the lessons.
