Philosophy: Every Student has a different Personality and brings different skills and experience. In my Lessons and Workshops I develop together with the student(s) the most effective and joyful individual learning way. I believe that effective learning goes via an experience and playful joy with the music, beyond technical reading and repeating. I like to work with Kids from age 7 as much as with Adults.
