My teaching approach: I feel fortunate to do something for a living that I truly enjoy: teaching people how to play guitar and music the way they always imagined possible. I will work with any student of any level of experience who is willing to make a serious commitment to learning guitar. I explore all genres of music with my students.My influences are: Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Duane Allman, Dickie Betts, Doc Watson, Muddy Waters, Joel Newton, Jimmy Page, Adrian Smith, Bonnie Raitt and many others.My guitar lessons take place in: The student's homeGuitar Lessons with me take place in the following areas: The Birmingham, AL metro areaGuitar Techniques: Jamming Skills, Music Theory, Scales and Exercises, Song Writing, Guidance In Equipment Selection, Lead guitar, Rhythm guitar, Open tuning, Fingerstyle, Slide Guitar, Vocal Accompaniment, Performance, ImprovisationYour first guitar lesson with me might include the following: I like to get to know the student a little bit and establish a comfortable, relaxed environment. If a student has any playing experience, I ask them to play anything they're familiar with.A guitar lesson with me might entail the following: The primary guide to how I shape guitar lessons is the students' musical goals and favorite artists and songs. I find it helps to approach each student as a complete person and not just a guitar student. This way, students tend to feel more comfortable discussing and working towards their goals. I teach students how to learn music organically, spontaneously and creatively, more by ear than by notation.The qualities I look for in an ideal guitar student might include the following: My ideal guitar student loves music and has a serious desire to learn guitar or improve at guitar, and respects our time together and the process of learning.
