My teaching approach:
My professional experience includes teaching private students sine 2000, teaching English in Japan (4 years; all ages), substitute teaching, college professor's aid experience, and more. Whether related to teaching guitar or other subjects, I have plenty of teaching experience. I like to use the book, "Harmony and Theory," I always use metronomes, keep up to date materials for students using youtube and other utilities/programs, and have a very patient personality mixed with a scientific approach to teaching. Students must practice, so I motivate them to practice daily!My influences are:
Scott Henderson, Nirvana, Pantera, Blink 182, Cuban artists such as NG la Banda and La Charanga Habanera, the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, James Brown, and more.My guitar lessons take place in:
