Skills and expertise
As a music teacher, Alvaro’s style is based upon identification of student’s needs, motivations and long term visions. It is crucial to understand what the strengths and motivations of the students are and from there nurturing and encouraging them. Music is a language and it doesn’t matter the style or genre, we can learn something from all of them.
Manifesting patience and respect for the learning process, that may vary for each musician, and offering a long term vision with affordable milestones to help manage anxiety and stress will result in a deeper assimilation of the contents. At the same time, the student will enjoy the learning process.
