I believe that in learning an instrument and music, there is no such thing as difficult, only unfamiliar. As musicians, we must familiarize ourselves with things we do not know in order to excel in our instrument and create music. It can be anything from learning to play one note or writing a symphony. No matter what we learn, the rewards are endless! The lessons I teach are built around a stress free environment where no judgement can be found. It's all about enjoying what you're doing and have 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.
