My teaching approach: "I cut thru all the confusion of approaching the guitar. I give you the tools you need to have fun and start jamming right away with songs you want to play, while at the same time teaching you the fundamental principles of the instrument. I also teach everything from rhythmic structures and chord structures—to stage presence and how to select—and use—the right music gear!!!" My influences are: Christian Worship Music, Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan My guitar lessons take place in: The teacher's studio Guitar Techniques: Guidance In Equipment Selection, Recording and Production, Song Writing, Scales and Exercises, Music Theory, Reading Music, Jamming Skills, Improvisation, Performance, Vocal Accompaniment, Slide Guitar, Fingerstyle, Open tuning, Lead guitar, Rhythm guitar. Your first guitar lesson with me might include the following: In the first lesson we will go over the instruments function and learn a few chords. We will play them together I will show you how to jam and have fun with them right away. A guitar lesson with me might entail the following: I will give you a custom tailored lesson and help you be a well rounded player as well as help you find your voice on the instrument. The qualities I look for in an ideal guitar student might include the following: My ideal student loves the guitar and enjoys playing!
I love working with people and helping them achive their dream!!
Pardon the pun but, Dyce rocks both as a musician and teacher. He has a no nonsense approach to teaching which really helps the lessons in. Give him a try...you'll be surprised how quickly your playing improves.
Dyce is knowledgable, patient, and a great teacher. He will take great personal interest in your development as a guitar player. Highly recommended after nearly a year of lessons.
Taking lessons with Dyce is awesome, the approach he took to help me was outstanding. I needed to gain confidence and learn proper technique and its exactly what I got from him. Thank you Dyce.
Dyce is an excellent teacher. I really like his approach - focusing less on technical details and more on playing by feel. I also like the fact that even at an early stage he has us playing along with popular, recorded songs rather than just practicing solo. I strongly recommend Dyce for guitar lessons.
First we book a session by selecting a time that works for both of us. Then I proceed to assess and diagnos you. If you are completely new to playing guitar and/or music then its easy-we just start from the beginning. If you already have some experience then I will spend a few minute watching your playing and asking you some specific questions that will reveal your current skill level and knowledge base. After I get a general idea of how proficient you are the the guitar, I proceed to start giving you instruction.
