Teaching Styles and Philosophies
Our teaching philosophy is to maintain a sympathetic, encouraging and
friendly student-teacher relationship based on mutual respect.
Beginning and Young Students
For beginning students, it is important to note that a certain amount of patience is needed for the development of new skills (examples include hand-eye coordination and breathing techniques).
For young students, this stage can be particularly challenging, especially when expectations are not immediately satisfied.
We encourage parents to be sensitive and support their children through the various phases of learning by providing practice reinforcement.
If your child is experiencing particular difficulty, please keep us informed so that we may work together on a creative solution.
Consistent practice is essential to continued improvement. We recommend regular practice throughout the week plus one weekend day.
We find that students make greater progress practicing a little each day, as opposed to practicing for an extended length of time on one day only.
