My teaching approach is to spark enthusiasm right away by teaching my students to play their favorite songs. The first lesson with be a short discussion of certain goals and aspirations the student wants to fulfill as well as learning some fun songs. From there we can meet weekly, bi-monthly, or monthly to improve the students technique and knowledge of the guitar. Background: - Over 13 years of guitar training - 5 years of teaching experience - Performing Experience - Proficient in styles such as Blues, Rock, Jazz, Classical, Acoustic, and more. - Knowledge and experience in recording and recording technology
Mike is an extremely experienced and dedicated musician. I've almost given up on learning to play the guitar until I met him and he resurrected my interest. Within 10 months I've written a lot of songs and could play them on my guitar as well. He's extremely professional, yet warm in his communication style. He's given me a lot of experience and growth within 10 months and shaped up my musicality by working on the pieces I really enjoy. His patience makes learning experience fun for me and I've gained a substantial knowledge and became creative with my guitar. He doesn't make me feel bad about my mistakes but rather, he listens and understands my problem areas and provides the solution. His dedication in pushing me towards achieving my goals makes him exceptional, therefore I highly recommend him. From Juliet Nj.
Our first lesson would be a brief discussion of the students individual goals, musical background, and my musical background/experience. From there we will design the lessons to achieve the students own personal goals and aspirations, all the while having a lot of fun.
