*** Lesson Details ***
Students can expect a low-stress environment with small goals in order to reach their ultimate goal. A typical lesson may look like this:-Greeting-Warm-up/tune-Fundamentals-Technique and Tone-Lesson Overview and HomeworkHomework will consistently be a few things to work on to improve, and the student is expected to practice those things until they see improvement and continue to practice past that, too. After a few months, the goals the student and I have set will be attained and the student will be closer to have attained (or have already attained) their ultimate goal (i.e. playing an entire piece perfectly from start to finish).
