My method is to study each student's learning strengths and weaknesses. There is not one method that works for every person. I adjust the method to match the student. I have written music books and workbooks for teaching different methods and seen much success over the years across the United States and in some other countries as well.

For all beginners, I start off with basics. I like to use the Rubank Beginner (or intermediate) book along with weekly scales. A well rounded musical foundation is vitally important, so I make sure to balance classical training with ear training assignments that get the student to listen critically to music they're passionate about.

Connecting with my students and being attentive to their learning needs is top priority. Each student brings their unique learning style, and I strive to fit my curriculum to best fit their path. It is of utmost importance for music material to fit the level of each student, so I often write, arrange, or change music to customize the learning experience.
I approach each lesson plan different depending on the student and their level of confidence. I believe everyone not only learns differently but also has different needs depending on the subject which will have a need for teachers to change their tactics. I like to make sure I not only thoroughly know the subject but also being able to show different methods for teaching it.

Fundamentals are important, but playing music should be fun from day one. We'll work on learning to play melodies and tunes with which the student is already familiar. I've found that once a new musician sees how simple some of their favorite songs can be, it's easy to dive into the music theory side and explain "why it works.
My teaching method is simple. Start from the beginning on how to make sounds, learn to read simple music as we progress in finger exercises. Learn to have fun while playing. Emphasis on practice, the more you practice the better you will find it easy.
I teach according to each students needs. I don't use just one methodology I like to incorporate many like Dalcroze, Piaget, and Orff. I give lessons to all ages of all levels. I want to make sure each student grows to their full potential and grows to love music.
My teaching method involves using the first lesson to assess the student’s existing ability, if any, and developing an approach based on the student’s level. If the student has no previous experience, we will start with the basics of playing.
