THE GURU: I am a multi-instrumentalist performer & teacher with many years of teaching students ranging from 3 to 93 years old from various cultures, professions, & walks of life.
THE GOAL: I am very patient and very student- oriented. The goal is to make you the artist you’re meant to be. and my role is to gradually but quickly become obsolete to you.
THE PRAXI & COST: Lessons are normally one hour, mostly 1-on-1, once a week. I charge $30 per one hour lesson. Students will do at home many short practices with total of least 1 hour. Adult students should aim for more and must learn to enjoy doing so.
THE IDEAL: The whole summer period may be enough time for the students to be on their own; to teach themselves more of their favorite songs in their own style of expression.
THE PHILOSOPHY, BELIEF, & more AD: I also have some students who read or like to read musical notes to play in symphony. These students normally remain under my guidance for a year or more. However, I firmly believe that learning by ear is a lot faster learning and often more enjoyable; these students seem to play better with their inner feelings and instincts, and a lot less involved in mechanically and rigidly reading notes.
