Do you have a personal message for students?
The key factor of learning to play an instrument is enjoyment, it should be fun! It is a skill that will stay with you all of your life, and in return for the practice, dedication and patience it takes to learn an instrument, the rewards will be endless. My years of teaching experience has shown me that everybody learns differently. Therefore I tailor my lessons to suit each individual student so that they will get out of it what they want, and have fun doing so!
