Hi, I'm Emily.  Since 2002, I've played music professionally as a solo artist, band member, composer, session musician, and hired touring musician in many genres including rock, blues, country, r&b, folk, and metal. While obtaining my Bachelor's Degree and my Associate's Degree, I studied jazz and classical music. It is my pleasure to bring what I've learned from these experiences to my students.  Visit www.emzimmermusic.com.

I've been teaching awesome students like you since 2008. I love to help students of all skill levels develop their style, musicianship, and creativity. Whether you're a seasoned picker just brushing up, or you're a total beginner, let's get you started on your musical journey. 

My passion for teaching the art, skill, and language of music helps students play the music they love!

My students learn to balance the challenges of learning good musicianship with the enjoyment of creativity. 

Every student is different, and every student can be great!  I work with each student to develop their individual learning path toward the skills that make them great musicians

Emily has clearly done this before.
It was a first class for dozens of kids and she managed it very well.
Can't wait for more!

Emily Zimmer was wonderful. My 7-year old grandson really enjoyed her intro class. I'm interested in signing him up for the Winter Warm Up Group Class she mentioned she is currently teaching.

Music makes people feel great.  That's why my students start by playing music they love, then we incorporate the skills necessary for them to become well-rounded musicians with a wide variety of abilities:

- Playing the music that makes them feel great!

- Empowering students with the building blocks of music (scales, chords, rhythm, melody, harmony, etc.)

- Establishing excellent physical technique

- Using effective practice strategies to improve

- Reading various forms of musical notation

- Setting specific goals and achieving them

- Empowering students with music theory basics (or advanced, if it applies)

- Establishing good listening skills and music analysis

- Regular evaluations of progress and abilities

- Using creativity to enrich their lives and enhance all forms of learning

- Left and right-handed students are welcome!

*Scheduling and Cancellation policy - Lessons canceled with at least 24 hours notice will be rescheduled or refunded.  LESSONS CANCELLED WITHOUT AT LEAST 24 HOURS NOTICE CAN NOT BE RESCHEDULED OR REFUNDED.  THIS POLICY STANDS EVEN IN THE CASE OF ILLNESS.

**College Audition Prep Requirements:

-Required minimum for college audition preparation is 8  1-hour-long lessons (preferably over the duration of 8 weeks)

-Student must be ready and willing to put in hard work in their individual practicing time, not just during each lesson. 

-Each college's requirements will vary.  Requirements for the student's intended school will largely guide the lessons.

-Remember - admittance into the student's college of choice can not be 100% guaranteed.  However, if the student is ready and willing to put in the work and follows the teacher's instructions and the school's audition requirements, they will do well.  If the student does not follow instructions and requirements, they may not be ready to take on a college program.   As a successful music college graduate, I am happy to provide the knowledge and skill that I know it takes to succeed in a college music program.  Let's talk about starting your journey to success today.
