I tailor my teaching approach patient on what the student wants to learn. So many students have horrible memories about being forced to learn piano or guitar as a kid.
That stops with me immediately. You are reading this because you have a choice. It's the best thing about being an adult. You get to do what you want to do and not what's epxected of you.
I'm very passionate about teaching. I'm very focused on what you want to learn. Whether it's Classic Rock or something more modern, I want you to have FUN!!
I highly recommend Lloyd! I just recently started playing the acoustic guitar about a month ago and I've made incredible strides in my playing ability. He puts a great lesson plan together that's tailored to how you play. For instance, I had issues with hand placement and playing notes clearly so he gave me two new exercises that have since corrected my mistakes. He's also very invested in developing personal and close relationships with his students so that he can help them in the best way possible. He has sent me numerous helpful videos and albums to listen to. He even met with me at local guitar stores to help me find the right guitar. Thanks to Lloyd I'm hooked on playing and I never want to put my guitar down now. I wish I could have lessons with him everyday!
Lloyd is very passionate about music and teaching. Just one lesson has me thinking completely differently about my approach to play the guitar. I'm looking forward to learning more from Lloyd.
Lloyd was a pleasure and gave a strong start...I wanted this to be fun and I left motivated
I really like to find out what the student is interested in and then create a plan of action on where he or she would like to be six months from now
Then review his or her progress at that time with future goals towards improvement.
I Also teach on-line!!
I have been playing for over 40 years. In addition to studying with Carl Verheyen (Supertramp), Jay Graydon (Steely Dan), and Alan Pasqua (Bob Dylan), I have a degree in Film Scoring & Composition from UCLA
I have a standard pricing system that I will go in to detail with when I speak with the potential student.
Several of my teachers suggested that I would be good at it. I have been told I am a natural teacher.
My students range in age from Six to Sixty. I am equally comfortable teaching kids as well as adults.
Looking forward to seeing Bill Frisell & Julian Lage at UCLA next week!!
Try one lesson each with several teachers so you can compare and contrast.
Have a clear idea of what your goals are for lessons. Really decide if you want to have guitar has a creative outlet as an antitote for a stressful day job. Alternatively, if you have specific musical goals that you would like to accomplish, I can help you with that as well!
