Lesson style

As a writer/performer of original works I would encourage anyone who wants to create listenable music not to underestimate the importance of music theory.

Having said that, when you're just starting out usually you need to have some fun while you're finding your way around the instrument.

Lessons are fun, and are geared to the individual's needs. There is no set syllabus, although if a student wishes to study for an RGT grade exam, there is obviously a structure to the subject matter.
