I believe that it is important to teach a student using a variety of methods, so that they get a very rounded education. Typically, I use the Suzuki method and Essential Elements, but the method I use will greatly depend on the student’s needs and learning styles.
I try my very best to make sure that my students aren’t only improving, but are also having fun. It is important to instill a deep love of their instrument and of music, so that practicing and lessons can be productive instead of a waste of time and funds. I hope that they will come to love their instrument and music as much as I have.
