"Because everyone learns differently, I use a variety of methods. I like to teach sight reading as soon as possible, but I also feel it is equally important to learn about chords, chord functions, accompaniment and especially creativity and improvisation.
So many musicians that I have met along the way can either sight read only or they can just play by ear and can not sight read, which is why I usually take time during the lesson to teach not only how to sight read, but also how to understand what you are playing. There is so much more to it that just reading the notes on a page. Digging deep into music theory is exciting! " -Jennifer Lyn

What ages can be taught?
Ages 2-4 have their very own educational music program. They will learn how to make sounds with many different instruments and also gain an understanding of rhythm. They will be learning that notes go up and down and will begin to make their own songs with the freedom of self-expression. It is very beneficial to allow a child to begin playing music at a young age, and sight reading will also be started.
Ages 5-6 will begin processing patterns and sequences on the piano or guitar. They will be able to play songs easily with fluency while adding rhythm into their hands. Building up their sight reading and rhythm skills is important. Skills learned at this age will last a lifetime.
Ages 6-12 begin the foundation levels that build a strong, solid foundation of music theory, songs and a large selection of rhythm patterns. They will learn how to play accompaniment pieces, transpose, play many fantastic pieces covering many genres of music.
Ages 13-19 increase their skills by filling in any gaps they may have missed along the way and covers a large amount of theory and helps students to put to use the skills they have aquired. They will learn how to play along with others, easily transpose the song into a different key, learn riffs, runs and build that love for music!
Ages 20-35 will have a fun time giving yourself the time you deserve to sit down, take a moment to relax and enjoy playing some great tunes. Students will be able to play many songs and will have a full playlist of all genres. They will be able to play anywhere, anytime, freely without the need of music books, and they will also be able to read music well.
Ages 36-96 can enjoy the great sounding songs they are capable of playing and will be able to read music, play with a band, sing if they want to, and spend quality time with their instrument and beautiful music. Studies of the brain show that playing a musical instrument greatly increases the blood flow to your brain and your brain is exercising harder, than if you were just sitting in front of a television watching a show or daydreaming about something. Plus, it's just a lot of fun!
For the parents of a student..
Parents are encouraged to attend the lesson each week. You play a vital role in the success of your child. It allows the parent the opportunity to be directly involved in the students' education, as well as create a time each week for that special time with their child. It will create a lasting memory in your child's life that they will appreciate for a lifetime.
Already know how to play?
Students that have taken lessons for years traditionally will benefit greatly from these lessons. The valuable tools offered will allow you to increase your playing skills. Whether you are a musician that plays in a band, or you just want to enjoy music wherever you are, you will learn how to play along with others with the accompaniment program. You will learn arrangements and variations. You will also play contemporary chords: major, minor, 7th, major 7th, minor 7th, augmented, diminished, 2nd, 6th, 11th, 13th and split chords. This opens the door to being able to play virtually any song without needing the sheet music in order to play. Reading music is also taught in detail at a time when the student is ready and has learned a large repertoire of songs.
How much time for practicing?
Practice five days a week, 30 minutes a day. You pick what day you want to have off and the other days you practice at a certain time each day. It really works and the results are fantastic!
Do I have to sign a contract?
No, you may pay by the month and stop at any time.
