Why I work well with kids?
I have experience with teaching students from as young as 5 and as old as 70. The average age of my students is about 9. My lessons are very structured, 2/3 technical development and 1/3 music. For my beginners, the music portion will be method books until I feel they are capable of repertoire. I stress the importance of repetition and slow practice. With all students, there is a window of opportunity which usually occurs within 3-4 weeks of taking lessons where if they don’t see progress, they quit. Technical development (achieved by slow, repetitious practice) accomplishes this. My systematic approach has achieved vast improvements in all my students, so much that 85% of my students are referrals from parents who are impressed with my work.
