Mackenzie takes many pedagogical approaches in one - some prefer a more serious approach, some more laid back; this is tailored to individual and the moment. Most lessons with Mackenzie consist of fun activities, mixed with an expectation of a high standard outcome from all the practice and hard work carried out by both tutor and student. This is all done in a supportive environment, completely tailored to the individual.
A first lesson with Mackenzie is usually centred around finding out what the student is wanting out of lessons, and how they respond to various games and small challenges he will provide - this is to indicate how lessons should be structured in the future, making sure to build on existing strengths and address any weaknesses that may arise. Regardless, you will certainly enjoy your first lesson with Mackenzie - it will be very relaxed yet engaging. Mackenzie likes those who have prior experience with lessons to bring some music to play. If you’re a complete beginner, don’t worry - the lesson will be fully catered for.
