About the lesson

Every student is unique and there is not one method to guide the variety of students one teaches. Of course there are the fundamentals which are extremely important in the exercise of music. Hand position, reading bout treble and bass clefs, rhythm and most all the understanding of what you are playing. Understanding is key: "The noblest pleasure is the joy of understanding." Leonardo da Vinci
