Lessons can be organised as one-off lessons, set term (5 or 10 week term, for example), or on an ongoing basis.
Half-hour lessons ($35) focus on giving students new ideas and developing the tools to further develop their abilities through personal practice.
Hour-long lessons ($50) provide a greater opportunity to develop and maintain correct technique during lessons and explore the application of ideas more fully.
I’m always happy to discuss your needs in order to develop an individually tailored curriculum with the specific aim of helping you meet your goals.
Lessons can take place at my fully appointed studio in Macgregor, or at your home. Parents are welcome to attend lessons at any time.
Rather than emphasising technique and rudiments as the starting points of tuition, I teach students in a way that is fun and rewarding. This provides students far greater satisfaction and motivation to continue learning. By the end of his or her first lesson, a beginner student will be — at very least — playing a basic beat. This provides a solid foundation for further lessons and works towards the goal of having students play along with their favourite music.
If you’re unsure about what you’d like to focus on, you can always check the list of lesson ideas at my website (http://raraboomcrash.wordpress.com/) for inspiration.
