Teaching style is determined on a student by student basis. I like to get to know the individual, what their goals are with the instrument etc... and tailor a program just for them. Basics such as music theory, ear training, music history  and technique will all be discussed.  I've taught for only 20 yrs from beginner grade school age private lessons to advanced University music courses.
