Prior to beginning lessons, I sit down with the student and do an assessment in order to determine the direction we will take. The student will provide details about the music they enjoy as well as what their goals are in terms of playing the instrument. If they wish to learn certain songs, they will be asked to provide a list so that I can prepare them properly to play the songs that they have chosen. By doing this, I am able to customize every single lesson plan to suit the individual. Below is a general outline of some of the things that may be covered. I teach far too many concepts to list them all.
