Instructor Philosophy

Keep safe and have fun. Most students learn best through hands-on repetition, not by instructor verbalization. For some, visual/auditory learning complements the learning process. Flexibility, communication and cooperation between students and instructor are the keys!

  • Meaning - your style vs their style.
  • Kids do not have a problem trying.
  • Kinesthetic – Learn by feeling
  • Visual – Learn by Observing
  • Auditory – Learn by Listening
  • Visual Cognitive – Learn by Reading
