My teaching approach: Hi I’m Becky! I teach guitar, ukulele, songwriting and vocal accompaniment (and cowbell? No one wants to pay for one hour of me saying, “More cowbell!” …….yet) at Guitar Center Studios In Denver, CO and online via Skype. Music is a language, and I love inspiring others to be able to create and “speak” their own music. I believe it’s called “playing” music and not “doing” music because it should be fun! My influences are: Cat Stevens, Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, Radiohead, No Doubt, Smashing Pumpkins, Fleetwood Mac, Jewel, Modest Mouse, Death Cab for Cutie, Rocky Votolato, First Aid Kit, Walk the Moon My guitar lessons take place in: The teacher's studio Guitar lessons typically take place on these days and hours: I'm at Guitar Center Studios Mon and Wed-Sat. Usually around 2-7pm. Contact the studio manager Olivia at the above number to schedule! Skype lesson availability posted on my website. I also host songwriting group classes online! Guitar Techniques: Lead guitar, Rhythm guitar, Open tuning, Fingerstyle, Vocal Accompaniment, Performance, Improvisation, Jamming Skills, Reading Music, Music Theory, Scales and Exercises, Song Writing, Recording and Production, Guidance In Equipment Selection Your first guitar lesson with me might include the following: I love to hear about your goals and help you reach them! Have a song you want to learn? Write your own songs? Play with others? Be in a band? Play and sing? Get ready for a performance? Get the theory stuff? Be the star of the campfire? Show me what you know and we'll go from there! The lesson and curiculum will be tailored to your level and goals. Beginner? You will learn at least part of a REAL SONG of your choosing in the FIRST lesson! I haven't had a student yet that has walked away not knowing at least a verse! A guitar lesson with me might entail the following: At Guitar Center Studios We have a curriculum developed by Hal Leonard and Guitar Center that uses real rock and pop songs for exercises, not twinkle twinkle little star. I use that for part of the time, and spend the rest on a lesson tailored to you! Online lessons are based on my own song-based curriculum. I also teach based on various materials like "Fretboard Theory" by Desi Surna. Learn techniques while building your song vocabulary! The lessons will help you reach your own goals and potential! The qualities I look for in an ideal guitar student might include the following: Anyone who loves music and wants to make their own! I especially love inspiring kids, women and girls to rock!
