  • So You Wanna Play Guitar

    So You Wanna Play Guitar

    Boulder, CO · Christopher Macor

    My approach for a beginning student is to find the songs that they really want to play and to teach them how to play these songs in the easiest possible way. Guitar Philosophy 1. PATTERNS – This refers to the fact that guitar is an instrument that can be played somewhat easily by memorizing left hand patterns. A guitarist can play alot of music this way and have only a very limited knowledge of notes and theory. 2. NOTES – This refers to the fretboard and actually knowing the names of the notes on any fret. Having this knowledge links the pattern orientation of guitaring with theory and

    My teaching approach: I tailor the lessons to individual student. It's important to come up with a lesson plan and write it down so that progress can be gauged. I believe the ability to read music is a huge advantage to any musician. Theory is just as important because if a musician learns the "whys" of music, it will make the "hows" that much easier. Technique is also a big focus. I have taught over 200 students in my career and have a strong knowledge of many styles as well as theory. I make the lessons fun and un-intimidating. My students feel comfortable asking me questions. My guitar les

So You Wanna Play Guitar?

Christopher Macor · Boulder, CO


What or who inspired you to start teaching?

I was called to teach by a friend of mine. He was wanting to play guitar and he offer to gather some students together and have me teach a beginner class.

What do you love most about your job?

I love to take a person`s inspiration to play a popular song and make it real. Motivation is half of what it takes. Along with some discipline and the right strategy (teacher), people can be very fulfilled playing music.

What types of students have you worked with?

I've taught preschoolers and seniors and everyone in between. Actually, I was a Montessori teacher for numerous years so I have a lot of experience with children. This is where I learned about the importance of motivation and making the lesson concrete. This is why I focus on specific songs, songs that the student would die to be able to play. The aspirant highly motivated and the process of learning is led by this motivation.

Tell us about your passion for teaching:

I love expression, whether it's musical, artistic, literary, theatrical or dancing. The word HUMAN is two words HU and MAN. HU is an Egyptian word for God. Man refers to the mammals that we are. We are a hybrid of what is here and now and what is beyond. Expression gives voice to both these parts of us, the parts that are innately ourselves and to a vast repository of our potential. In addition, music is uniquely expressive because it can incorporate all of the art forms (think of a music video)!

What advice would you give aspiring students?

Pick music that you love. Practice at least three times a week for at least 15 minutes a session but no longer than an hour. When you get to bottlenecks ( places where the flow of the song slows down ), loop that transition, from the last chord before the bottleneck to the chord where it starts to move faster again. Keep practicing. When we stay focused, we can't see our progress as well but it`s actually when we`re having the most advancement.
