"Music is my connection to others because it inspires the soul!" - Larry Farr

About Me

Hello my name is Larry, I have been teaching with Music & Arts since June 1997. I teach because I love advancing music within the lives of my students. Each student comes with specific challenges that are in need of being overcome; this dictates that every lesson must be unique, tailored to the learning style and needs of each student. Music has a strong foothold in my life, allowing me to meet a variety of individuals while providing opportunities to share my talents with them. It is important to me that my students grow in their walk as a musician, and are encouraged to share their talents with those around them.

With my new students, we will focus on understanding music notation, rhythms, and proper technique for their instrument. As we progress, more time will be spent delving into musicality, bringing life to the music. While the notes and rhythms are a fundamental beginning, they are not the end; implementing expression and intentionality in your playing is what truly takes the music off the page and into the hearts of your audience.

My end goal for each student is to see them grow. Growth in their understanding of music, mastery of their instrument, and confidence as a player. Please reach out if you have any more questions, or if you are interested in taking lessons!
