Students are unique individuals with different experience, different passions, different personalities. I believe teachers should embrace their difference and bring out the bests from each of them. Teaching is fun, and I want my students to be interested in what we learn.
I have a master degree in music composition. My students' age is from 7 to 55. I have been teaching in private lessons since 2012. I would love to create lesson plans just for you. We will make music together!
