Can you teach this instrument: Online edition

One positive that's come out of this year is many students of all ages are finding the time to learn music - and since I'm not traveling between students, I actually have more students now than I did in-person! 

With the increase of potential students, and considering how online lessons work for students of different ages and abilities, I've got some updates to the "can you teach this" question.

I DO teach the following (online):

  • Beginner to intermediate piano for ages 8+
    • Parents strongly encouraged to sit in on the lesson for students ages 8-10, especially if we are starting from scratch online
    • Ages 6-7 may be a possibility if we've worked together in person and/or parents can sit in on the lesson to assist with hand position
  • Beginner to intermediate guitar for ages 8+
    • Parents strongly encouraged to sit in on the lesson for students ages 8-10
    • I don't recommend starting from scratch online for students under age 12 unless parents are familiar with guitar and can sit in on the lesson to assist with hand position
  • Vocal coaching for ages 12+ 
    • Online vocal coaching focuses primarily on breathing techniques, vocal exercises, and healthy singing 
  • Songwriting and singer/songwriter coaching for ages 12+
  • Performance/audition coaching for ages 12+
    • This includes livestream performance coaching, if you're new to streaming and need some help with your streams! 
  • Music theory for ages 12+

I DO NOT teach the following (online):

  • Ukulele
  • Mandolin 
  • Bass
  • Violin/fiddle 
  • Dulcimer 
  • Banjo 
  • Guitar to any students under age 8
  • Piano lessons to students under age 8 unless we've been working together in person
  • Early music/music appreciation/intro to music for young students

I'm happy to help find instructors for anything I don't teach! If you've acquired an instrument you're unsure of, please don't hesitate to reach out, and we'll see what we can do!
