My teaching philosophy is based on the knowledge that excitement and interest will create natural learning. The curiosity that we all have inside and the joy of discovering something new is the key and the force that will guide us in the lessons. My first efforts as a teacher are to discover the student's musical passions, what does they want to play, what kind of music does they truly love and connect with. After that we will invest in learning the fundamentals of the instrument, we will study how to read music, develop a good sound and intonation, work with rhythm and ear training exercises and how elevate the whole musicianship level. Excellence and creativity are the values I keep close both as a teacher and as a player.
Lesson materials are varied and will depend on the student's level and musical interest. It may include transcriptions, PDF files, lead sheet and other sheet music, articulation exercises, mp3 tracks and more.
