About this pro

My teaching approach: I have been teaching for over 17 years and performing professionally for about 22 years. I have a B.A. in music performance. I teach based on the gradiant method which means we set goals and make objective analysis of your progress towards these goals. Please contact me for a more detailed description of my teaching approach, academic and professional accomplishments. My influences are: My influences are good music and musicians of all genres and types. My guitar lessons take place in: The teacher's studio or the student's home Guitar Lessons with me take place in the following areas: I presently teach at three different music stores, my students houses, and via Skype. Guitar Techniques: Song Writing, Scales and Exercises, Music Theory, Reading Music, Jamming Skills, Improvisation, Performance, Vocal Accompaniment, Fingerstyle, Rhythm guitar, Lead guitar Your first guitar lesson with me might include the following: In the first lesson we will get to know each other a little and try to figure out what you already know, what you want to know, and how to get there.....by practicing with discipline, focus and artistry. A guitar lesson with me might entail the following: We will keep a note book. We will work on 3-4 areas of study each week, of these items I will pick the first three based on the students needs to develope knowledge and proficiency of chords, scales, reading, rhythm, and repertoire. The remaining area of study is determined by the students personal interest. The qualities I look for in an ideal guitar student might include the following: A good student is ambitious, motivated, and works hard to integrate the material into their own personal musical vocabulary.
