It is very important for me to take into account the learning styles of my students. That is why I tailor the materials and learning strategies to them as individuals. However, all students can expect to be introduced to repertoire of many genres and styles, etudes, excerpts, and fundamentals to build strong technique.
Methods and recommended texts will vary depending on the student's playing level.
