Why I work well with kids?
I work very well with kids of this age because, I teach in a way that makes things fun and most importantly interesting! I am extremely patient. I find it very gratifying to share my knowledge of music so they too can experience a lifetime of all the wonderful opportunities that I have. I have a lot of experience working with students from the ages of 5 to 20.
