I am an encouraging and friendly teacher who wants to help my students reach their potential, and enjoy the process of learning along the way.
I will assess the student's playing and help them develop in all areas, as necessary. These include technique, note reading, rhythm, harmony, musicality and expression.
My teaching is flexible and I will adapt to the needs, wants and learning style of the student, while maintaining a structured and methodical approach so the student is able to practice effectively and continue to improve away from the lesson.
