I teach lessons to students of all ages. Most of my students are school age. How ever adults are very welcome.
I encourage all of my students to participate in local music auditions ,competitions and recitals. I believe every person is born with rhythmic and music skills waiting to be developed. Students feel very accomplished when they learn a piece to play for judging. Students receive certificates or trophies or monetary rewards for participation. I also have yearly recitals.
I put great emphasis on how to learn music: Note reading, sight reading, theory, technique, etc.
