My approach of music tuition is very adaptable; I believe that every student is different, has his own perceptions, his own ideas, and I intend to respect that and organize my lessons accordingly. I want me students to have fun during their lessons but at the same time be as productive as possible.
In my lessons I use various teaching methods such us the Kodaly, Dalcroze and Alexander Technique.
