My teaching style is simply focused on growth. Each student is different and I tailor instruction towards the individuals goals and needs as a player. I believe for growth to happen that I need to get to know the student and their goals.
Each student will receive individually tailored lessons, individual materials (as needed) sent to them, and also an open line of communication. I am always willing to answer questions as they come up in between lessons.
