Sentinel Music Studios Philosophy on Teaching - Instruction (Pedagogy)
At Sentinel Music Studios - we sincerely believe that the approach that is used here is unique and is based on the following two important principles:

Principle #1:
To instill in the student the ability for them to think for themselves.
Hopefully this principle is obvious - but our desire is to have the student be as independent as is possible - and as soon as it is possible.

Principle #2:
That the student comprehend what it is they are being asked to do and to demonstrate this through "recitation and example" - that they are able to explain by the next lesson - each and every thing they are doing and are about to do.

Lesson Materials
At Sentinel Music Studios all of the instructional materials are provided for the student during the lessons. These instructional materials are comprised of specific modules that focus on the gradual increase in complexity as the required techniques are developed.
