    *** Lesson Details ***
    Lessons will be focused on helping the student reach their own personal musical goals, whether that be grooving, soloing, composing, arranging, or being able to play their favorite bands' tunes, through learning:
    - to apply music fundamentals to their instrument, which include sight reading, ear training, music theory, and knowledge of their instrument
    - proper technique
    - correct posture and hand position
    - how to be creative and expressive on their instrument

    I expect my students to be able to provide the following: their own instrument, method book, tuner, and 3 ring binder with note book paper.
