*** Lesson Details ***
Do you just want to get started learning how to play as fast as possible? Do you just want to get going without dilly-dallying around with stuff that doesn't interest you? Then you've come to the right place. I tailor my lesson plans to fit each individual students specific wants and needs. I don't use a cookie cutter approach since everyone learns and understands musical ideas in different ways. My strengths are extreme patience and an ability to find different ways to explain a concept that will make sense to each student individually. First we assess your musical goals then tailor a curriculum that will help you to accomplish those goals in the most efficient way. Above all else I make learning to play fun and fast!
