Tutoring Approach:

I believe that music is for everyone, whether working towards a career or not.
As a teacher, I see myself as being friendly, dedicated, persistent and always expect the best results from my students. I tailor my lessons to each one of them, taking into account their personality, abilities and own goals. I want them to feel inspired, motivated and benefit from the lessons as much as possible.
