With this in mind, Russell tailors his teaching to allow students to get the most amount of enjoyment from the instrument without sacrificing any improvement. In fact his students tend to improve at a faster rate because they're enjoying what they're doing! Overall Russell enjoys sharing his musical passion and ideas with as many people as he can.
