I love teaching, and I take great satisfaction in helping students have a musical life of their own - it's tremendous fun and everyone should try it at least once!
My classes focus on developing comfort, speed, and versatility, with the long-term goal of creating skilled and knowledgeable players who are able to accompany tastefully and creatively in whatever style they choose. Classes usually begin with a few simple "no fail" approaches to accompanying jigs and reels, and address other types of tunes, ornamentation (double and single-ended), fills, and tonal variation according to the level/wishes of the class.
