I incorporate a variety of techniques to tailor lessons to students’ unique personalities, goals, and learning styles. Parents and adult students have appreciated my passion for teaching, and my use of humor, games, every day experiences, and the internet to not only effectively explain the material but also to EXCITE students about LEARNING. My techniques help students to become more facile with the subject matter, and to develop good study habits that generalize to other subjects. I also share techniques (such as using acronyms and associations) that help them memorize test material more quickly and reliably. I'd be happy to discuss w ... View Profile

Jimmy Kraft School Of Musicality

Jimmy Kraft School Of Musicality

I offer a fresh perspective on the role of the music teacher. I'm certainly here to help my students learn the fundamentals, but I believe in a why-first approach to lessons. If I can't clearly articulate the reason why we're doing something and the impact it will have on a student's progress or understanding, then we don't do it. Nothing is arbitrary, and every moment is useful. I try to make sense of things by observing the patterns and relationships at play in the world around me, and I often employ this approach in my curriculum. Whether we're discussing scales, chords, saxophone technique, vocal technique or songwriting—everything ... View Profile

Music Without Borders

Music Without Borders

Hi, my name is Ruslan (Russ). I believe that music is more than just a skill or a language. My approach concerns helping people to understand how to express oneself through infinite means of sound and rhythm without overloading the brain with often useless rules and limitations, while expanding active knowledge about instruments and different types of music. Music has been around me since I was born. I played tunes on guitar since the age of 6, then started playing seriously at around 14. All self-taught, I started picking other instruments such as piano, bass guitar, drums along the way, succeeding in seeing parallels and working out how mus ... View Profile
