This approach has the benefit of fitting any style of music for any instrument, and with a little patience anyone can find themselves understanding and performing music better through theory.
Started as Elementary school music instructor, and recently added a Middle school class. Teaching students to understand music, identify musical styles, understand and appreciate music history, learning about music technology, as well as putting together winter and spring concerts for performance experience, as well as running the Just, Arts, and Music Club (J.A.A.M.).+ Read More
