Anne Roos prefers to offer hourly lessons to older teenagers and adults, rather than half hour lessons, and then seeing students every other week. This allows more time for Anne to respond to questions, and it allows students more concentrated practice time. For children, and on request, Anne offers half-hour lessons taken every week--Less material is covered during the lesson, and the student's practice time is monitored more closely.
Anne takes the time to assess your musical experience and goals into consideration before you embark on your learning path. Lessons are always taught one-on-one so that you can learn at your own pace--Anne protects you from getting discouraged by comparing your abilities with others. Anne welcomes parents to be present during their child's lessons.
