MEGHAN’s MUSIC STUDIO IS NOW offering ONLINE lessonS!
Private Lessons & Classes Online | Guitar, Drums, Ukulele Fundamental Skills | All Levels | Ages 5+
I’m a little different than other music teachers because I tailor each student’s goals and learning style with personalized lesson plans, that way we can better focus on what you want to learn. I also teach the fundamentals and theory of music so that you can have fun creating music too!
You might be just starting out on a new instrument, or maybe your current practice lacks the structure you need. I’ve been teaching music for the past 10 years and have taught many different students, with many different musical goals! My goal as a teacher has always been to inspire a lifelong love of music in my students.
My music studio has moved online! With moving lessons online, I’m happy to work with students all over the world. Lessons can be taken through Skype or Zoom in the comfort of your own home!
In-person lessons are now regularly available at my Toronto music studio.
For drum lessons, I generally structure each lesson with a (1) warm up, (2) groove exercise, (3) fill exercise, and a (4) song.
Topics that can be covered (but not exclusive to): practical hand and foot technique, grooves, fills, styles (pop, rock, jazz, latin and funk), improvisation (how to create grooves, fills, and solos), musicality (developing your own drumming style), music theory and rhythm studies.
Guitar and ukulele Lessons
For guitar and ukulele lessons, I generally structure each lesson with a (1) warm up, (2) chord/strumming exercise, (3) picking/melodic exercise, and (4) song.
Topics that can be covered (but are not exclusive to): chords (open, power, barre, etc. ), picking and strumming techniques (strumming patterns, hammer-ons, pull offs, slides, etc.), riffs and licks (scales, creative concepts) and theory (how to make chord progressions, riffs, etc.)
Music Lessons for kids
For my younger students, I always try to make music lessons fun and engaging:
• I teach core concepts with a more fun and straightforward approach (like using fruit names to count rhythms)
• I can simplify chords and rhythms to help kids start playing their favourite songs faster
• I add pictures to music notation to make sheet music more intuitive for kids to read
My lesson plans for kids centres around music games and activities, sing-a-longs, and songs that kids are more likely to know (theme songs, folk songs, film music, and pop songs!)
