"When teaching total beginners, I like to start with an appropriate method book in conjunction with basic arrangements of popular songs that the student can relate to. We use those resources as a vehicle to a strong foundation. And then gradually introducing the student to new genres. I also spend a great deal of time discussing the importance of breath. I will often incorporate Breathing Gym exercises into our session. I encourage my students of all skill levels to perform publicly whether through competitions, recitals, or paid gigs. Students enjoy showing off what they've worked hard to accomplish!"
