Instruction and Lessons
Most everyone has heard the saying "Practice makes perfect". While it's intentions are good, I prefer to say "Perfect practice makes perfect". One could practice hours, and not progress because they not practicing correctly, what their instructors are teaching them.
My instruction is based on learning to read music. Building a solid foundation of rhythmical reading enables the student to pick up any method book or music magazine and understand and apply what they're reading. I encourage students to try and write the rhythms that they're hearing their favorite artists play.
