the lesson

Prior to your first lesson, I will ask you to send me a short recording of your playing. It can be a tune, a specific piece or an improvisation. It will allow me to analyze your playing in depth and come up with a “diagnosis“. Just like a doctor, I will take notes on what can be improved and give you some exercises according to what you need. If you wish to book more than one lesson, I keep track of my students’ works so that they can assess their progress.  


When you book your lesson, you will receive a confirmation e-mail. Lessons take place online on ZOOM, a video communication software.
