My main goal is to make the student feel comfortable and to convey to the student that music is supposed to be enjoyable. That being said, we will work out of books and play along cd's and I do expect the student to come in prepared for each lesson.
It is important for me that the student feels comfortable with me, so I try to make sure each lesson has a specific goal, but to keep the lesson light-hearted and fun.
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.
