I am easy going and I want you to feel comfortable and at ease, but we do need to focus & can have fun doing it.
I utilize various methods , which is determined by the students learning style & needs, so this can change as time goes on
(not sticking to one particular publishers materials). I have done (& continue to do) extensive research into materials available for Piano and supplement with my own, to utilize the best out there for "YOU" for the best possible progress. While ensuring an extremely well-rounded musical education, so you can progress at the best possible rate. Since each student's potential is different, each will progress differently. This is also determined by your dedication to daily practice (the more you practice, the quicker you will progress & the more accomplished you will become). This is a 'Team Effort'; I give the guidance & tools, and you practice, utilize & learn these tools, & off we go! The sky is the limit!!! :-D
