soul to the universe,
wings to the mind,

Beyond simply accumulating knowledge
in the subject of music, the best teachers are also inspirational. They find ways to connect each lesson to the student's personal experiences, to facilitate seemingly effortless progress. Custom lesson plans are a great starting place. However, effective communication, flexibility, and creativity are the true gold standard to seek.
