"Phonics" are the basic foundation of all alphabet-based writing. For learning to read English, students learn best when taught a combination of phonics and sight-words. (English is full of words that are NOT spelled phonetically; however, the rules of phonics do have a definite place in learning to read English.) With beginning readers, I incorporate songs and rhyme to help children hear and understand phonics. I also use rhythm/percussion to help children distinguish syllables.
About Linda L.

I have been teaching music (guitar, bass guitar, keyboard, banjo, mandolin, ukulele, recorder, music theory, and classes for toddlers, preschoolers, school-aged children, and adults) for over 20 years. I am also a band/show director at the School of Rock! In addition to teaching music, I also tutor academic subjects for children up through the 8th grade, and English/reading/writing/ESOL to students of all ages. I am also a songwriter and performing musician, and play in several different local bands, including a popular Rock and Pop Through The Decades band, called "The Steppin' Stones". I love helping my students learn what they want to learn. My lessons are all customized to match the interests and abilities of each individual student! I am patient, encouraging, and friendly! Guitar: I specialize in the following styles: jazz, rock, blues, folk, bluegrass, and children's songs. Piano: I prefer electronic keyboard to acoustic piano, but am happy to teach beginning students on a regular piano as well. I teach note-reading, playing by ear, and theory, with en emphasis on rock, pop, and folk music. I include arranging, chord theory, and use of the many features of an electronic keyboard, in the lessons. Bass Guitar: I teach rock, pop, funk, and country music on bass. Banjo: I teach bluegrass, country, and some blues and rock music. I also play and teach old-timey frailing/clawhammer style. Ukulele: I play and teach all styles of ukulele. Mandolin: I teach bluegrass, folk songs, and any rock songs that have mandolin parts. (Led Zeppelin, Heart, Rod Stewart, etc.) English and Reading: I am highly qualified to tutor/teach English (spoken, written, and reading comprehension) to both native English speakers and to those learning it as a second language. *** I am particularly good at working with children who have a.d.h.d. and other learning disabilities, and I have experience in teaching music to kids who are on the autism spectrum.

so happy I chose to have Linda as my teacher ! she's patient with me (a beginner who does not always have time to practice regularly) and is super helpful with giving me tips and advice on how to be better. Linda can also play ANY song and has helped me learn tons of my favorites. We're working on Annie's Song right now and Linda has helped me not only understand how to play the notes but why we play them a certain way (heck yeah music theory !)
