I believe every student has the right not only to make music, but understand HOW it works, so they can experience music to the fullest! This is why I make music theory classes part of the curriculum for students over the age of 7, and add in historical stories about music, to help understand how it has shaped the music of today.
Introducing young minds to a brand new world. Music is a whole culture, language, art, and existance in itself. Bringing students into that world opens up so many new possibilities to them, and allows them to explore new ideas, thoughts, and sounds!

In the first lesson, which is a free trial lesson, I assess the student's learning style and natural strengths. We work through a regular lesson book(s) to quickly get the student on the road to learning to read music and playing by ear.
