+ What's your teaching style?

The three most important goals to teaching music to children is keeping them inspired, improving their skills at an achievable rate and always having fun. Music is about expressing yourself, but this cannot be achieved without learning good methods of technique or without the energy and enthusiasm of a teacher who can guide students to express themselves musically.

Personally, I strive to show children the importance of music in life. In my experience, learning music can help spark a child's imagination or ignite a lifetime of passion. When you provide a child with new worlds to explore and challenges to tackle, the possibilities are endless.
