Teaching Info

Arjuna’s teaching style is very student driven. Wether the student is a beginner or already an accomplished musician, the focus will always be what the student wants to get out of playing music. With younger students priority is placed on developing important life skills such as determination, communication and confidence through playing and understanding music. He has also taught people who already have an understanding of music and would like to go deeper to aid with composition, performance and production.
