Why I Work Well with Kids

I work well with kids and with people in general because I'm empathetic. I try to understand the perspective of an individual and guide them form there. I also have a lot of experience with kids; not all my students are kids but most of them are. My priority is to pass on the tools and understanding needed to grow as a musician.
