The only thing that separates language from noise is the presence of patterns. Likewise, the only thing that separates music from noise is, again, the presence of patterns. Music is a language and should be approached as such. When children begin to talk, we meet them at their level of communication. We do not wait to engage them in conversation until they have mastered proper grammatical structure or have even learned to read or write. That deeper understanding of language comes with time and practice of those skills. While exercises are important for the development of instrument technique, the end goal should be the communication and expression of ideas, just like a language. Music education should be fun and engaging. With that in mind, all lessons focus on the individual needs and interests of students, with all materials tailored towards keeping students yearning for the next step in their journey.
