I like to talk with each student before starting sessions to hear their expectations of and reasons for taking the session they’ve chosen. I will then tailor the sessions to help them achieve what they want to achieve. It is not so important the level they achieve but their enjoyment of the process. When the student is having fun and learning then the music can be played freely.
