I think that it's very important to understand the needs and difficulties that each particular student has. In my opinion, the music class should be a space where the students feel relaxed and free to release their potential and accept their limitations in order to be able to make music with joy and pleasure. In order to achieve this, we go step by step, doing exercises together, understanding the process, and making everything in an easy and understandable way. 

We use different published methods during our lessons. It's very important to be able to read music, know music theory, learn to perform with confidence, and also improvise. I will give you different options or repertoire as you advance in your lessons, and we will always play the music you want making the proper arrangements according to your level.
