Tell me about some of your current students.
My current students are a broad mix of ages and levels from beginning adults to highly skilled children. They are all very different people with different personalities so I try to change my teaching to suit their individual needs for example, if the pupil has had a particularly hard day then we can work in a different way so they don't become too tired.
Do you have a personal message for students?
I believe that students should alway find time to have fun and be creative on there instruments as well as doing their designated practice. I believe if you have fun with your instrument you are more likely to enjoy practice and feel more motivated to pick it up.
