LESSON STYLE

It is always my goal to provide the student with quality and valuable information. It is most important for the student to be most attentive to become familiar with the experience of playing an instrument and making progress to take home with them. After this it is most important that the student remains inspired to practice and recall the experience from the lesson.

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.
