Making music fun - Beginners of all ages on stringed instruments, piano & recorder - ON-LINE lessons

Methodology

I separate the different aspects of string playing, so we are able to focus and achieve results. If you've never driven a vehicle before, you wouldn't get behind a driver's wheel, and expect to cope with rush hour traffic, would you?
I use an exciting book called "String Explorer" and base my lessons on it with a touch of Suzuki and current tunes taken from youtube. Lessons must be pleasant for both of us. Time and money are precious to everyone.
I encourage visiting youtube to watch how others play so beautifully. With practice, improvement is swift.

Background

I have taught music for over a decade and hold a bachelor's degree.
Learn on-line - lockdown is no longer a problem
Begin to play and start music reading basics immediately.
Play a tune after only one lesson - It's fun to learn with Mama J
