I teach how a student wants to learn. There is a reason why each student wants to pick up an instrument. I evaluate and discuss goals and form a curriculum under what he or she wants, so while one student has structure and books, another may have lead sheets and create his or her own music. You have to spark creativity to have results in success.
Pending on the subjects, I provide the materials with worksheets, lessons plans or books to use.
