About this pro

My teaching approach: I have taught students from a variety of ages (7 yrs - 65 yrs) and have found that a more laid back, no pressure approach is key to developing a student's interest. I have played guitar for over 10 yrs and have been in gigging bands for 4 yrs. I have gigged all around the major venues in Metro Detroit. I attended the Brighton Institute of Modern Music, In Brighton, England.My influences are: Hendrix, Zeppelin, AC/DC, Metallica, Megadeth, Lenny Kravitz, Oasis, Pantera, The Darkness, Alter Bridge, Nickelback, Motley Crue, Guns N' Roses, Velvet Revolver, Judas Priest, Stevie Ray VaughnMy guitar lessons take place in: The student's homeGuitar Lessons with me take place in the following areas: Student's homes in North Oakland Co. Orion, Clarkston, Rochester, Birmingham, Berkley, etc.Guitar Techniques: Scales and Exercises, Music Theory, Reading Music, Jamming Skills, Improvisation, Performance, Rhythm guitar, Lead guitarYour first guitar lesson with me might include the following: Beginner students will receive a discussion of the make-up of a guitar, the difference between electric and acoustic guitars, an introduction to open chords and how to strum a chord. Also how to tune a guitar.A guitar lesson with me might entail the following: Guitar lessons may consist of music theory and learning a song of the student's choice. For a more experienced student, lessons would involve rhythm guitar technique, scales/licks and soloing exercises, and introductory metronome work. For learning songs, a breakdown of each part of the song is given, with complimentary guitar tab for the student's post lesson practice.The qualities I look for in an ideal guitar student might include the following: I have found that a student's general interest can turn into a passion given the right encouragement. Developing an ear for different guitar styles and genres will help a student become more well rounded. Practice and patience is key to learning guitar.
