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

I usually welcome him and ask him what kind of music he would like to play. If the student already knows how to play the instrument, I invite him to play together. If the student is going to play the instrument for the first time, I play some pieces for him to listen to and we begin with the rudiments of the technique.

From the first day we make it our goal to learn a song that the student likes. I introduce musical concepts taking advantage of the student's tastes and goals. Over the last 25 years I have seen that this methodology gives very good results!
