My beliefs as a private lesson instructor.
I believe ;
That every student is different and each must be treated as an individual. I craft individual lesson plans to help each student reach their goals.
In the use of positive words such as; “Great Job”, “You did it” and “I can see you didn’t have much time to practice this week. Was it a busy week?” instead of words like “No, that’s not right!”, “You messed up the last part” or “You didn’t practice!”
Music is a language and should be learned like one. Mistakes are a part of learning.
