Philosophy

  • Any skill can be learnt with guidance, practice and motivation
  • Every student has individual strengths and weaknesses
  • Music learning should be fun and joyous, not dreary and arduous
  • Some people just want to learn to play for pleasure, not as a career
  • I don't look down on younger people - they were just born later than me
