In Student Home
I fluctuate in time by 5 to 15 minutes, due to traffic. To the best of my ability I work with people's schedules. I have references available on request. I am a LOW pressure style teacher. I value calmness, straight-forwardness, analytical thinking styles, understanding, encouragement, and more. I respect what you are doing with your musicianship.
