Description of piano lessons

For Bruno Barbier, each student is unique. It always starts from everyone's desires, whatever they may be, to gradually lead the student towards sometimes unsuspected horizons.

He evaluates where the student is, his strong points, the points he could improve, and from this evaluation, he makes him evolve in a constructive way by highlighting his qualities.

The key idea is to take pleasure in taking your time, to take one step after another without rushing. It's the surest way to go deeper.
