Lessons are tailored to individual students' interests, needs and personalities. We will discuss your interest whether classical, jazz or pop, and I will walk you through to achieve your goals and most importantly to enjoy playing music! I am also happy to help you with composition, arranging, ear training and music theory. Please feel free to reach out and discuss your interests and goals. I look forward to making music with you!
