About Kevin Ward
Every musician is different! It is very important to diversify your instruction to cater to the needs of each student. A private lesson is the perfect environment to meet these needs and accomplish musical goals. I use a variety of methods to present content to my student, whether it be through visual, audio, or tactile means. My main goal is to teach proper practice habits through active analyzing and problem solving. These skills allow students to progress outside of lessons and propel them towards their musical goals. I find it very important to teach concept of sound. How can you progress towards a goal when you aren't sure of the quality to which your goal should be met? We should always strive to be better musicians everyday. With the proper instruction and tools, you can be on your way to musical success!
Mostly importantly, music should be FUN! Feel free to contact me with any questions at the store (910-864-8808 or firstname.lastname@example.org). I look forward to meeting you and making some music together!
