I have acquired over five years of teaching experience, travel from ages 5 to 17 acting and playing music. In addition I am a full-time music teacher and spend my free time volunteering at a local high school teaching music. I love music and teaching, it is amazing to see the look on a student face when they learn something new and even better when they perform and stun the audience the joy that my students get makes me happy its confirmation of a job well done.

Good start

What I liked about Charles' teaching style is that he pushes, but in a very good way. My son took lessons with him, and a lot of times he can have teachers running in circles around him, but Charles was able to instruct in a way that worked very well and kept him focused.
