No two students are alike. All lessons are geared not only to students’ personal learning styles but also to their goals. Young students, for example, might have a goal of playing in a school orchestra. An adult might have a goal of playing for friends and family, or of adding violin as a second or third instrument. No matter what the goal or learning style, lessons are the foundation of the entire process of acquiring music skills. As a music educator, it is my job to tailor a fun and engaging lesson program for each student.
