My philosophy is simple: everyone learns at their own pace. I’m not a strict disciplinarian who forces students to practice several hours a day. I feel that approaching practice as an enjoyable activity rather than a chore is the best motivator. So my students practice according to their desires, schedules and abilities, and lessons are there to encourage that desire and to suggest better ways to help a student have fun & improve their skills.
