Coaching

Would you like to have your own private IFR coach to help you reach your musical goals?

We can give you something that no other music instructor can provide, which is personalized coaching based in the IFR framework. The combination of the IFR methodology with an experienced coach can be life-changing. Imagine having a personalized version of the IFR method designed for your exact needs, and then imagine also having a great teacher to guide you and encourage you every step of the way.

Benefits of the IFR coaching program

It's incredibly effective. Having an IFR coach greatly speeds up your learning because you get personalized attention exactly where you need it. You know from your own experience that talking directly to an expert like a doctor is the fastest way to get just the information you need, even on a very complex topic. We understand your challenges because we've been there ourselves! And we can show you exactly how to make the connections that will really accelerate your growth. Our private students can easily develop their skills at a rate 5 to 10 times faster than they were achieving on their own.

It's fun. All of our instructors are musicians and teachers who love what they do. We use musical games, creative exercises, singing and playing activities to give you the most beautiful and enjoyable learning experience possible. Each one of us has already made quantum leaps in our own musical ability using the IFR method, and we're excited to do the same for you. Learning music should be fun, creative and inspiring. Let us show you how to get on a much more enjoyable path to musical mastery!

You'll get great feedback. One of the challenges of studying music alone is that it's hard to know when you're practicing the exercises in the intended way. In your singing practice, you might wonder if you are producing the pitches properly with your voice. In your playing activities, you might wonder if there is more to the exercise, that maybe you're not grasping its full potential. An IFR coach solves all of these problems for you because we will do the exercises with you to make sure you're hearing the sounds correctly and learning the important lessons along the way.

It takes the stress out of practicing. One of the immediate benefits of having an IFR coach is that you know you are in good hands. You don't have to wonder whether you're advancing too quickly or too slowly, or whether you've missed an important ability along the way. We take personal responsibility for your success, and we'll guide you on your path every step of the way. We also give you lots of support and encouragement to keep you motivated and feeling great. For all these reasons, learning with a coach lets you relax and truly enjoy the journey.
