There is no method in music that works for all. From hearing the student playing on the first lesson, I immediately create a method that will work for this student and no one else. This is based on intuition and it comes from my knowledge and love form teaching music.

Lucas is one of my favorite teachers. He really care about the student progress. Even after the lesson finishes, he takes the time to e-mail me everything we covered with professionally made pdf and mp3.

Lucas is one of the best instructors I've ever had. He creates the lessons focused on the student needs, and than breaks every topic into smaller chunks that are perfect to learn.
