Never heard myself playing The Lark, so I decided to record it. It turns out sounding like an Erhu (or the Chinese Violin) haha.
Throwback to my violin solo for the Azusa Pacific University Chamber Singers Concert 'I Carry Your Heart With Me' on 11/11/16

Great teacher. He was my music theory tutor, and I was able to skip past two college theory courses within about a week of hour-long tutoring sessions.

From my experience, he works with what you have: he finds your strengths and helps you to learn based on how he believes you'll best receive new information or inspiration. He is able to communicate concepts in many different ways, and always makes sure you understand. He is not long-winded, but communicates the necessary information in a way that is straight-to-the-point, and does not waste time giving his students "busy work," but instead gives them exercises that are directly or indirectly helpful every time. He is a patient teacher, and does not make you feel like you will be left behind. He passionate about teaching and his students, and he does a great job at teaching.
