Major Lessons

  • The Level System provides a great technique base, from which to develop other more advanced techniques required to execute more complex repertoire.
  • Bill Bachman’s teaching philosophy of “earned progression” through the material he uses, has directly influenced how I structure curriculum and lessons for both my students and for my own learning.
  • Ultimately, technique is a means of obtaining a desired sound or tone, and this should be the guiding factor in determining which technique to use at any given time.  Therefore, having a wide range of techniques at your disposal, provides a wider vocabulary of sound and tone, to be available to express yourself musically.
