J Caban Music
Depending on your skill level and interests, we start with a song or style/technique that you want to learn, which keeps the interest high and focused, and through to process, we'll work on building techniques such as right-hand & left-hand, wrist, fingers, and thumb mobility, comfort and independance. Learn to play with a metronome, working on chords, scales, and the “Nashville” number system to advance your knowledge, as well as on string-bending, vibrato, and playing with dynamics, on acoustic & electric* guitars, bass, and/or slide guitar.
I enjoy working with students of all levels and ages, teaching and supporting the creative process with the tools and techniques to help develop a student’s own style and musical ideas.
* For more advanced electric students - I can also help develop and refine your “sound and tone”; by consulting on the right instrument and/or equipment (amps, guitars, effects, and anything that you need/want to help create the sound you’re hearing in your head).

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
My teaching style starts with songs that the student wants to learn while building and working on playing techniques and theory in the process. As well, I record and send a summary of each zoom lesson so that you can more easily practice between lessons.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
* As of the pandemic quarantine in March, I've been teaching exclusively via Zoom.us or FaceTime from my home studio.
