About this pro

I like working with my students and helping them not just be proficient on the instrument and develop a polished sound but also I love encouraging them to stand out and work on being a unique musician. I have been playing the guitar for the past 10 years and currently I am a graduate with a degree in performance from Berklee College of Music in Boston. I have been teaching both private and online video lessons. You can also check out my videos on Facebook https://m.facebook.com/subharajdg?ref=bookmarks 

as well as Instagram

What I enjoy most about my work is the fact that i can sit and experiment with different sounds an different styles of music and have fun doing so.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I try to get to know what my students want to work on, how they want to sound and most importantly the specific skills that they already have and moving forward from there.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I graduated Berklee College of Music in May of 2018 with a degree in Performance having the guitar as my pricipal instrument.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I primarily charge $60/hr.


How did you get started teaching?

Few years ago three friends of mine wanted to take lessons from me and since then I found a love for teaching.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have mostly worked with students who wanted to improve on thier improvisation, ear training, knowledge of harmony and their sound. However, I have also taught beginners.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I guess for me it would be the day I graduated from Berklee. It seemed like a dream come true.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Make sure whatever you are learning leads you to being musical.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

This would be hard to answer since often student may not know what they want because of the lack of exposure to music in-depth. Instead i'd say that it would be helpful for any student/proffessional to keep an open mind and take all the imformation you can and eventually try to use it your own way and before you know it, you have your sound.
