Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
The first lesson is typically an assesment of the students ability at their instrument. It isn't anything to worry about, I just like to have a baseline for where a student is at so I can give them material to practice based on technique they might need some extra work on. I don't teach out of a method book for most of my students, I typically come up with exercises based on the songs that they want to learn. Nobody wants to practice things they arenn't interested in, even me.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I am in my senior year at ASU working towards a Bachelor's Degree in Guitar Performance.
