Our Teaching Philosophy
West Lake Lessons employs highly qualified teachers that use their own teaching styles. However, all of our teachers follow these guiding principles:
Music Literacy - Our guitar instructors teach students how to read standard music notation as well as tableture notation. These skills are highly beneficial to understanding music fundamentals, learning how music works, and developing reading skills that are transferable to other instruments!
Popular Repertoire - Our teachers encourage their students to take control of their musical destiny by selecting repertoire from their favorite artists and composers. Music lessons are infused with passion when students learn songs they know and love. It makes beginning musicians want to perform for their friends, which is after all, what music is all about! .
Professionalism - During our home lessons, Westlake Lessons teachers are friendly and courteous guests in our student's homes!
Communication - Our teachers conclude each lesson with a written summary of the week's assigned material and/or goals, and a verbal summary of topics covered, so that students and parents know what to practice between lessons!
Resources - Our teachers take on the responsibility of providing our students the resources to practice their weekly assignments, whether its printed sheet music or neatly handwritten exercises.
Performance - Westlake Lessons hosts semesterly recitals, which allow students to gain much needed performance experience in front of a friendly audience. They are a perfect reward for the work put in during the semester, and infuse their lessons with energy with anticipation of the next recital!
