The lesson will begin with an evaluation of your basic knowledge about the instrument, so that I can gauge your skill level. Then we'll move on to basic instrument methodology and an introduction to reading music.
Learning an instrument can help you become more confident and reduce stress. Studies have even found that students who learn an instrument tend to do better on tests than non-musicians.
