My teaching method is to create a solid foundation that can then be built upon. I start with the basics but tailor my lessons to the interests and needs on my students. If student need help with instrumental composition I will teach them techniques that will be useful to them.
My teaching develops and nurtures basic music skills and artistic practices needed (on any instrument) to create original music. This can be explored either as an individual or as part of an ensemble.
I believe in helping my students find their own unique voice. In the lesson we will work on exercises to strengthen your voice and boost your confidence as a performer, and apply these exercises practically as we work through a variety of songs of your choosing (with guidance from me). We will sing along with a recording, a cappella and with guitar accompaniment.
I usually tutor 1 on 1 but also offer group sessions to make it more affordable and easier for some students. I focus on what the students is currently learning in class and help build ideas and explain concepts the student may struggle with.
CLASSES FOR FUN: Want to learn how to write a rock song? Pop lyrics? Tripping over getting a catchy melody? Let's have some fun and get creating together! IN DEPTH CLASSES: If you are a serious musician wanting answers! I like to comprehensively go into the whys, hows and ways in which music can be understood.
My teaching method is based on the student and what their goal or vision for the session is, and my own experience. I will cover my own approaches, some other approaches that may work for the student, and I will guage the pace that is suitable for the student and together we will work through the stages of crafting a song depending on the level of experience and the goal or desired outcome.
I am a teacher who approaches each student differently depending on their goals and requirements. I prefer an environment where the student has a clear idea of what they want to gain out of the lessons so that I can directly address the areas of music theory that they may struggle with.
Having had many teachers and tutors over the years I experienced many different styles and methods of learning. The best method and one I have taken into my own teaching is the emphasis on getting the student comfortable and excited to express themselves musically. I aim to get my students playing and exploring their creativity on the instrument in a fun and structured program.
I like to tailor my teaching method to each learner.
I will quickly establish how it is that you learn and tailor the lessons to you. I will also advise extra homework for you to complete in your own time if you want to practise more.
My teaching method is entirely dependent on the individual - i.e. what he/she wants to learn, has questions about, doesn't understand, etc. My philosophy of music is a bit like a target - a ring of concentric circles. We start where you're at and push as far out as we can. It's all connected, but I teach in stages, so as to equip the individual at each stage, not only at the end.
Relevance to students needs/wants is the key to successful learning. I also employ strategies such as informal learning and non formal teaching, where students gain responsibility through self empowerment. Diagnostic/ reflective learning, building rapport with students, modifying curriculum/lessons as appropriate.
I teach based on practicality and musicality. I encourage my students to develop their ears. Knowing about frequencies, scales, chord tones, microphones and any other subject of music theory or production will be useless unless you know how to apply them in a musical context.
I always start with a warm-up, sirens and lip bubbles. Then I move onto simple vowel sounds, then moving onto scales and arpeggios - building your diaphragm strength and increasing your range. Then help with melodies by breaking down every section of the form. I make your tone come through, by helping your breath support and dialect.
I use Thompson’s Easiest Piano Course to teach piano beginners, and I am following th ABRSM system to give music theory beginners lessons.
I am more of a practical teacher then verbal but however I find the best way to teach students is the way im gonna try and excel in.
My teaching method is very personalised. Every student has different needs, abilities and tastes in music, so I customise each lesson accordingly.
My songwriting classes are always aimed at providing the students with the understanding, confidence and tools they need to become great writers. I listen to the goals that the student wants to achieved, and together, we work towards achieving their aspirations.
I prefer to learn what kind of learner my student is as soon as possible, so I can tailor the teaching towards what works best for them.

As a welcoming and personable coach and mentor, I have a genuine passion for helping people and leaving them happier than before. Outgoing and individualistic, I aim to make lucidity out of chaos from a lifetime of experience as an eccentric performer and musician.
My teaching method is to demystify the confusion that sometimes arises in music theory by giving students opportunity to apply it directly to their instrument or compositions. Music is a common language and the learning of it should be accessible to everyone.
I approach music student lessons with a structure that brings together the student's current abilities with their potential to grow in a particular field. I model a learning activity, allowing the student to contribute/participate, while gradually increasing the level of challenge. This works particularly well in live performance studies.
Flexible and creative learning with a focus on intuitive and intellectual process in problem finding/problem solving, developing personal practice strategies in self and group learning contexts.
I've been teaching since out of high school for seven years with my experience with students ranging from 4 years old to students in their 60s and 70s. I can teach instrumental practices of piano and drums to beginners and intermediate students although I primarily now teach electronic production, composition, songwriting and music theory.
Studying music? Feeling stuck on identifying those tricky intervals or seeing the difference between a Locrian mode to a Dorian mode? My name is Sonja and I am currently studying Music at a tertiary level. I can provide help with high school level musical theory, songwriting and learning songs on electric bass guitar.
My teaching method is highly student centered and allows space to focus directly where the student operates at using strategies which cater to their specific learning needs. My experience is in teaching students at a K-6 level but am fully capable of teaching students from years 7-10.
I believe that everyone should love music. Whether you are a complete beginner who wants to learn to read music or a student studying music at a high school or university level I can help you achieve your dream. I am offering flexible online help, fitting in with your routine.
My lessons will include key points for beginner singer/songwriters but will always remain a tailored lesson for the individual that purchases it. In a lesson, we will go over basics such as major and minor keys, popular chord progressions and tips for lyrical writing.
Everyone is different and takes new things at their own pace, I love teaching in lots of different styles but love it when goals can be achieved.
