Teaching Philosophy

I have used my special right brain and left brain techniques which makes it easy to understand. I also use games and fun exercises for homework as a routine to make the next lesson easier. You may also pick songs you would like to learn by ear also, such as pop songs, jazz, gospel or even compose or learn to play by ear.
