Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
Every student has unique needs. Any student will succeed if the instruction is tailored to their learning processes. Since every student learns in a different fashion, it is necessary to use both traditional methodology and Suzuki methodology while teaching. Each student is placed in the program and course that best suits their learning needs. I expect my students to attend the lesson every week, complete all assignments, and listen to directions.

His attention to detail is extraordinary and his zeal for self-development is unequaled. His artistry inspires those who hear him pursue the music both as a listener and a musician.
