My students range from 2 to 78-years-old!
For young beginners, I usually recommend starting in kindergarten, but every child is different!
What levels do you teach?
What curriculum do you use?
I use age-appropriate Bastien curriculum! We focus on reading music, theory, and technique. I also like my students to have one or two standalone pieces of their choice to master - anything from pop, classical, Disney, or hymns.
