A Customized Approach to Music Education
Traveling Musician teachers use our own 7-point system of music education to ensure a well-rounded and organized method. We use custom materials and each student receives a lesson tailored to their own unique style and learning needs. Rather than using a single, limited existing method, we have combined our knowledge of the popular music education methods such as Suzuki, Kodaly, Orff, Gordon, Dalcroze, and instrument-specific methods with our studies of music, psychology, and pedagogy to create our superior school of learning.

Music Lessons in your Home
✦Any lesson without the materials needed is a lesson wasted. It is very easy to forget books at home in the rush of getting out the door.
✦Valuable lesson time isn’t eaten up by unpacking and repacking the instrument. This can be about ten minutes of lesson time you are paying for that is being wasted.
✦Instruments are delicate and respond poorly to being tossed around in the car and even to changes in humidity and temperature. Half the lesson on location is wasted when an instrument gets knocked out tune in transit and the teacher has to fix it.
✦Teachers can help their students practice more efficiently when they understand how and where the student is practicing at home. There are some bad habits that cannot be corrected until the teacher works with the student in their regular practice space.
✦Students are more comfortable expressing themselves in a familiar environment. When they know that strangers are able to hear everything they do, they are less likely to take musical risks.
✦A controlled home environment is less likely to be noisy or distracting to the student.
