Katy Peterson Guitar Lessons
My teaching approach:
An accomplished performer, worship leader, and instructor, Katy has performed and taught extensively in 38 countries and 32 States. Music should be a joy. Chaining a student to an instrument is not effective and the curriculum must involve and inspire. Beyond pedagogy of standard music instruction, Katy is gifted at helping each student find his or her authentic voice within solid technique.
My guitar lessons take place in:
In the teacher's studio
Recording and Production, Song Writing, Scales and Exercises, Music Theory, Reading Music, Jamming Skills, Performance, Vocal Accompaniment, Open tuning, Rhythm guitar, Lead guitar
Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
Each student presents unique strengths and challenges as we begin and progress. Each lesson is tailored to highlight what works well and strengthen weak areas.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Teaching is a passion for me, not a fallback.
I have been performing in public all around the world since I was 4 years old, and love it.
Teaching appeared as a passion for me when I was in Jr High and I began working with younger children at the church I attended. I have been teaching in some way, shape, or form ever since.
