Fundamentals are the key to mechanical mastery of the instrument. Along with the fundamental techniques, I will also involve musical elements such as solo rep, etudes, and songbooks to further the artistic expression of the individual. These two together will provide an exceptionally proficient musician, ready to take on the world!
I strive to meet the needs of the students on a case by case experience, while providing a well rounded lesson that provides the student with the essential tools to succeed.
Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.Ok
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
