Lucas approaches music with central belief that he is teaching a language. Like any language the use of music will differ between every individual. Some people might want to master giving a meticulous presentation while others may be more interested in learning to hang out and jam. Lucas teaches every student to pursue the goals they are most passionate about. With his knowledge of theory and technique and experience over a broad range of genres, Lucas is comfortable teaching students of all skills, ages, and ambitions.
