Hands on approach to mixing. I have club-standard mixing gear (CDJs and turntables) for practice with USB/digital, CDs and vinyl. I will teach students how to use basic analysis software like rekordbox, beatmatch music, control EQ bands, select proper track, and everything in between.
Performing music is an amazing experience in itself, but music is also a language in itself.
Charmaine doesn't have a specific teaching method, because she accommodates how she teaches according to the student's interest. She loves to teach little children, but she is mainly what you could call a piano tutor. She helps with whatever the students want to work on.
Lesley Andrew - Philosophy of pedagogy Teaching is my passion. I feel it is my responsibility as a pedagogue to impart the knowledge, skills and information needed for students to pursue and accomplish goals, while leading each student to feel comfortable, safe and confident in the learning setting.
I structure each lesson based on the student's goals and interests. I usually focus on Repertoire, Studies, Technique, and Ear training to prepare for the RCM exams but I am also happy to work on any particular styles of music students may be interested in such as pop music. For music theory, I teach Basic, Intermediate and Advanced Rudiments.
I teach solely based on the student and what they excel in and strive to find a balance, ease and joyful approach to learning.
My methodology follows the Faber piano series books as well as the Royal Conservatory books. In the lesson time, I customize a lesson plan that includes musical instruction with playing, theoretical instruction with a variety of worksheets, colouring activities, stickers, games, etc.
I evaluate each student's abilities and goals in order to design a personalized study plan and select repertoire that is simultaneously instructive and enjoyable. My extensive experience working with all kinds of students allows me to adapt to everyone's needs, making my lessons consistently encouraging and productive.
My first priority is getting to the heart of each student's strengths, weaknesses, and goals so that they can practice and perform as effectively and enjoyably as possible. From building foundations in rudiments and technique, to fine-tuning an audition or concert piece, I am committed to providing my students with the tools and guidance they need to play the most beautiful music they can.
For younger students I use the Lelia Fletcher teaching method books. For young adult / adult clients I use a combination of various materials I've acquired and put together over the years For music theory instruction I use The Complete Elementary Music Rudiments (Preliminary-Grade 2) Frederick Harris Music. Plus other various materials I've acquired.
I'm very passionate about teaching and have been doing it for the past three years in my private studio and more recently as a sectional teacher at Sistema Winnipeg. I've recently received my M.Mus degree from the University of Manitoba, where I studied with Dr Minna Chung, co-author of the internationally published book "Cellomind.

I base my classes on the basic chords and scale shapes, taught through popular/classic songs either chosen by myself or (preferably) by the students. While the basics are basically the same for everyone, I find that students have more fun learning guitar when the lessons utilize songs and genres that they enjoy.
I've been a musician for the vast majority of my life. I'm currently studying music at York University, more specifically in a jazz bass and guitar performance setting with roots in more technical genres ranging from rock to metal, math, and more experimental, ambient and avant-garde forms of music.
My initial focus is making sure that my students can understand the concept of music as a language. Helping them realize that, like any language, the idea is to be able to speak it. But in order to do so, we have to take some time to establish, even if only on its most rudimentary level, and understanding of how it works.
I adapt to the students needs and build a plan based on their requirements to meet their goals. I'm satisfied when the student is satisfied, then I will help the student to push themselves and evolve further with new knowledge.
Personal observation has taught me that it is most beneficial the balance the challenge of learning an instrument with an element of fun. So I find it advantageous to set realistic attainable goals. This serves to keep the student challenged enough but not deterred. I will be sharing fundamental exercises as well to train their ear and induce muscle memory.
My methodology of teaching is to develop student's interest within the subject . I always encourage the student and give them suggestion to improve. My class is typical for piano beginners who are interested in learning how to play music and also for individuals who is interested in music theory and would like to learn how music functions.
As a pianist and a teacher, it is important to assess the abilities of each individual student and to be attentive their particular strengths. It is valuable to allow for each student to develop the necessary tools to achieve their desired goals.
My main approach to teaching is based on positive reinforcement. Different people have different learning curves (i.e. some people learn fast while other learn at a more steady pace).
• Explained the basics and significance of music for the students • Developed a fun, relaxed, and creative learning environment and tailored lessons to each student's learning ability and individual interests, allowing each student to grow towards his or her full potential • Introduced students to diverse music styles

However, getting enough practice is an important basis for every piano learner to make progress.
Did you always want to learn to play the guitar but don't know where to start? Do you already have some experience in guitar playing and want to improve your skills? Do you want to learn reading staff notation and improve your musicianship? I am a Doctor of Musical Arts candidate at the University of Toronto offering in-home guitar lessons.
My methods are completely based upon my personal experience and they continue to evolve as my students do as well. that being said right now i believe in three important factors which are first 1.the artist 2.the technician 3. the architect. All these three roles are important and i continually search for more.
In learning the violin, fundamentals are extremely important. They stay with you throughout the years, and if learned poorly initially, can hinder your growth and development as an artist. As such, I like to mix in studies of basic technique with pieces that will challenge and inspire students, so they become well-rounded and motivated artists.
Most classes are once a week for a half hour but some students prefer one hour lessons. Lessons include reading music, playing along with pre-recorded music and videos.The studio is outfitted with acoustic and electric drums along with other instruments.
I use the authority, demonstrator and facilitator method. The demonstrator retains the formal authority role by showing students what they need to know. The facilitator promotes self-learning and help students develop critical thinking skills and retain knowledge that leads to self-actualization.
I'm very open minded and like to cater my classes to each students wants and needs and do my best to make it as interesting, fun and engaging as possible.
My teaching methods are designed to keep the student at ease as I am very flexible and can tune my methods to fit your particular style. My classes are meant for students who have a desire to learn about musical theory or those who need help.
