*** Lesson Details ***
I have a patient, confidence-building and enthusiasm-generating approach to teaching. I strive to provide a positive, inspiring and comfortable environment where students can learn in a way that is best suited to their individual personalities, playing level and pace. As we go along, we develop strategies for attainable goals with guidance for quality and streamlined practice-sessions for maximum results with minimum effort, which makes learning easier and faster. We also work from a list of the student's favorite songs in any style or genre, based on the student's interest, while exploring others in order to enhance skill and inspire creativity.

Music lessons are currently held in student's homes in the areas described as well as locations where amplifiers are provided.
