Lessons are taught in my home studio (take a look at the studio page to find out why) but I can teach in your own home if required. This may incur and additional cost for travel expenses.

All lessons are tailored to the individual needs of my students and progress at an appropriate rate for each individuals skill development and musical tastes.
