Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
My teaching style is based on exploration. Exploration of how the student in front of me best learns. I focus on physical, mental and problem solving. My goal is to have my students master the basics and understand how to go beyond them without my guidance. As a result, I love starting lesson with improvisation on the scale we are learning. Next we look at an etude and maybe even create our own exercises based on the students weakness with that scale or etude. We will also work on pieces.
