*** Lesson Details ***
I have a patient, confidence-building and enthusiasm-generating approach to teaching. I strive to provide a positive, inspiring and comfortable environment where students can learn in a way that is best suited to their individual personalities, playing level and pace. As we go along, we develop strategies for attainable goals with guidance for quality and streamlined practice-sessions for maximum results with minimum effort, which makes learning easier and faster. We also work from a list of the student's favorite songs in any style or genre, based on the student's interest, while exploring others in order to enhance skill and inspire creativity.
