I like to get to know my student's individual interests before devising our approach. I will borrow methods from Suzuki or particular books, if I think that it will benefit the student. All of my lessons touch on history, theory, and ear training. As we dissect particular lines or passages, I believe that the importance of knowing why we are learning is as important as training ourselves physically. Most importantly, music should be fun! I encourage my students to keep reminding themselves what drew them to music in the first place.

By Scott, Guitar Lessons
Eleanor has ben teaching my 12 year old daughter this past summer. I'd call it introductory lessons since my daughter decided to take up guitar while she was home from summer camp on weekends.
Eleanor was patient, pleasant, flexible and motivating. I was most fearful that this would be a passing phase for my daughter, but to a large extent due to Eleanor, she's been continuing and enjoying her music for several months now (even practicing on her own, filling our apartment with music).
Hope this helps with your search.
