FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

We will custom design curriculum for you that helps you to improve on the instrument of your choice in a systematic and strategic way. We will structure the lessons for you based on what you need that specific day. Some days this may mean that we focus on playing your favorite songs, other days this may mean we work on your ability to groove and learn new concepts.
