Personal Statement

Lessons should be orientated towards the student's needs.I let the student determine which pieces or styles they want to pursue while making sure the content of lessons ensure they get correct and useful musical skills. Additional techniques such as aural work and theory are encouraged,but if the student wants to prioritise their real time playing skills,that's fine.A well-rounded player is the desired outcome. Students are encouraged to set challenges-i.e gigs,examinations and the like but playing for pleasure only is equally ok..
