Miles M.

Organization logo

Miles began playing piano at the age of 7, then took up trumpet and singing shortly thereafter. He has performed with numerous musical groups in Sonoma County and around the country, at venues including the Wells Fargo Center, the Green Music Center, and Chicago's Orchestra Hall. Miles has appeared on multiple albums, including Orjazzmic's self-titled debut. Currently, he is composing the score for the upcoming internet-television series Cupid's Conundrum. He is also actively teaching piano, voice, music theory/composition, and ear training at Prune Farm Studio in Sebastopol and around the Sonoma County area. *** Lesson Details *** I like to teach the student the music that they want to learn. Every student is unique, not only in their abilities and learning styles, but in what they want to achieve, and even why they want to take lessons in the first place. There are three primary areas in which I would like to see every student improve: Musicality, Technique, and Repertoire. Depending on a student's needs and desires, one of these might receive more or less emphasis (and lesson time) than the others. However, I strive to help my students continually improve in all three areas. While many teachers have a particular method with which they are comfortable, teaching all of their students out of the same set of books, I prefer to approach the teaching of each student separately. I strive to design an individualized lesson plan for each and every student, helping them develop the specific skills they require while playing the music they love! I am here to help you reach your goals, not my own. As such, lessons are much more of a dialogue than a lecture. The more active you are in this dialogue, the more you will get out of your lessons. The first lesson is primarily spent discussing your musical goals and getting a feel for your current level of experience. By the end of the first lesson, you will have a few songs and/or exercises to practice. After your first lesson, I will prepare material based on your personal strengths and weaknesses. And if you specify some songs that you would like to learn, I will transcribe them and be ready to help you learn them at your next lesson! *** Specialties *** Jazz, Blues, Latin, Funk, Sou/R&B, Hip-Hop, Classical, Electronic Music Theory, Composition, Ear Training

Noodle says

Takelessons started as a platform to for music teachers, and is still strongest on that front. It provides tutors with organizational software designed to help track lessons, and so probably attracts more tech-friendly, highly organized tutors. No vetting or training is provided for tutors, so we highly recommend that you use their ratings and reviews when selecting a tutor.

TakeLessons says

Success in learning often depends on finding the right teacher; someone that not only has expertise in the subject, but also knows how to inspire. The teaching style that works for one student may not work for another. As a parent or student, how do you find the right match? As a teacher, how do you find new students that fit your style? TakeLessons bridges this gap.
