Teaching is always provided in tailored manner to best suit an individual’s needs; having taught all ages and levels of experience in the past, I have found this approach to benefit students most.
I have a particular focus on developing good technique as this provides a strong foundation for future playing and sets up good habits that persist though further education.
Methods and pieces would be selected to compliment a students needs and preferences.
