Teaching Methods

As a tutor, nurturing an interest in music with young children is my main objective. I believe by carefully fostering their interest in music, young children will be able to better develop and maintain their consistency in learning. For parents, I recommend leading by example and learning the instrument together with their children, this will serve as a the ultimate motivation in their musical journey.
