*** Lesson Details ***
My belief is that creating and cultivating healthy relationships is a key factor in providing a nurturing learning environment. I would like to pour my eleven years of guitar experience into the lives of those who truly seek to grow in their musical passion and skill.
Before the first note is strummed on any instrument, I find it helpful for both the student and myself to sit down over coffee (or tea for the already over-caffeinated like myself) to discuss goals, current level of musicianship, and most importantly, to get a solid introduction to one another. At that time, the students (and their parents, if they would like) have the opportunity to address any questions they have or details they would like to cover.
Oh yeah, did I mention that this first meeting is free?!
Once the course is set, we then plan a schedule to move forward.
