Using different and various ways to approach the unique personality and needs of each student is a basic principle of my tutoring scheme. I respect this uniqueness of each student and I always ask for feedback so I can adjust better my lesson plan according to each individual. In that way, the repertoire I use for teaching, reflects the needs (both technical and musical) of the student and at the same time focuses on their personal interests( jazz, rock, musical, pop etc.), keeping in that way their music interest active. At last, my tutoring approach includes improvisation, singing and sight reading, elements that improve the musical awareness, stimulate and entertain the student at the same time.
