TEACHING METHOD

Paul Blievernicht uses the Music Tree series, a traditional note-reading method that helps students recognize intervallic relationships on the staff. He draws on the Suzuki method to aid them in playing fluently in a short amount of time. Ear-training and improvisation are taught early on; classical and pop are often part of the weekly regime. The goal of lessons is to create an independent musician. Parents are a huge part of the equation and the lessons are always fun!
