My teaching style is very unorthodox though very, very thorough. I'm self taught for the most part, and believe that old-school methods and teaching perspectives are less relevant for the modern musician. I deal a lot with polyrhythms, time, sound, odd time signatures, improvisation and sight-reading. I'm a big believer in the "practice makes perfect" idea but have my own perspective on practicing and productive listening.
