I can offer my students a level of care and attetnion that the pros can't, and I have the am always willing to learn and adapt my cirriculum for my students.
I love playing guitar and love sharing that passion with others, so I will be very patient with my students. I wish that each one of my students can leave the lesson inspiried and ready to tackle guitar on their own time.
I am also very attentive to details, and I take pride in the work that I do. I never think twice about staying a few minutes after the lesson is over, to make sure a motivated student is on the right track for later practice.
I enjoy sharing my passion for music with others, and watching music come alive in new ways under different fingers. I also love interacting with others and working towards goals as a group.
Vishal was extremely knowledgeable and helpful in guiding me through the learning process. He was also very accommodating when I switched genres and was knowledgeable about various musical styles.
My tyoical process for working with a new students is usually first getting an idea of where they're at with guitar, and what guitar means to them. Once I can identify what drives them to play the instrument, I will attempt to build upon their pre-existing skills, or- if they are new to guitar- provide them with the necessary skills to enjoy the instrument.
Before COVID-19, I was volunteering at my local library and instructing group guitar lessons to members of my community. Here, I developed the essential skills it takes to teach guitar to others.
No, I adjust my price to account for the location of the lesson, and the length of the lesson. A good rule of thumb for me is $15 per half hour, but it varies.
My friends and I had the idea to begin teaching guitar to members of our community as a volunteer service.
I have worked mostly with younger students who are new to the instrument (guitar), however I have experience working with all types of students, from those elder to me with established skillsets, and those intermediate player who just need nudges in the right direction.
This is not really something I'm fond of, but it is definetly something that impacted me greatly. Rock guitarist Eddie Van Halen passed away recently, and the day was a sad day for many people like me who looked up to him as one of the guitar "gods."
Look for someone who really understands the genre of music that you're interested in.
There are many fluctuations in technique and efficient playing between styles of music, so it's best to find someone who really shared that connection with your preferred music genre.
I think it would be very helpful for students to analyze what they would like to gain from each lesson before the teacher arrives.
This gives the instructor something to work off of, and in my opinion it is the most effective way for students to learn.
