Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
I start by asking the student what their favorite kind of music is and what musical concepts / songs they want to learn / accomplish. I also have many instructional guitar books that I believe are great to work with begginer guitar students to help visualize the guitar neck and concepts easier. With more advanced students I like to work on musical conepts by playing with them in a duo setting to understand how they play and how they can improve their unique sound.
