I feel that private instruction is the best method for learning an instrument. The teacher can focus 100% on each student. This also means that each student can have a custom approach. “One size does not fit all.” We encourage creativity and composition/improvisation as well. That being said, we do use established method books as the basis of our teaching. These days there are many method books available in many different musical styles; classical, jazz, rock, etc. Knowing which ones to select is important. We offer half-hour or one-hour lessons. Most children take half-hour lessons. Please visit my website for more detailed descriptions of what I offer.
