Student must have own instrument and desire to learn! *** Lesson Details *** I believe many of my students enjoy my class and are able to achieve a higher skill level because I make it a point to personally motivate them. I give them personalized goals to reach and/or tailored practice techniques.Based on response, I may offer words of encouragement or tips such as how to ease sore muscles or an alternative way to execute a technique they are finding extra difficult. I make it a point to not just teach music grammar and/or fundamentals of music, but to include the importance of the sound of music strategies to enhance their skill development. *** Studio Equipment *** Yamaha Clavinova, piano Classical guitar "Takamine" Accordion "Gullietti" *** Specialties *** Accordion, piano, classical guitar Traditional School all styles and genres.

Alex was very kind and enthusiastic. Unfortunately we do not have the same kind of accordion so I did not end up continuing lessons with him. The introductory lesson we did have was a lot of fun and I can tell he is very passionate and knowledgeable about technique and music theory.
Soooo Smart! So much fun! Really, I couldn’t have felt more at ease and excited for the next one!
