My teaching methods are based primarily on the needs of the individual and what their learning outcomes are. Especially with music and in my experience, the best approach is what interests the learner then formulating a learning strategy from that point
I am a retired teacher (Music and French) B.Ed who has been performing regularly in the arts for the past 30 years. Musical theatre, orchestra, band, composition, direction, recording - the gamut! It would be my pleasure to offer my services
