Fun, experienced tutor in writing, reading, and music

I've studied many different forms of music, starting with my singing as part of a choir when I was around 9. I've played a number of different instruments ranging from clarinet to percussion, and have experience reading sheet music (though I'm admittedly a touch rusty) as well as tablature.

But with practice, patience, and encour [more]
