My teaching approach:
I find the students goal and work toward that. I have many guitars and recording gear to aid the process. I've played and recorded with several bands and solo. I enjoy writing and arranging music. My influences are:Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, U2, Chuck Berry, Stevie Ray Vaughan and a host of blues playersMy guitar lessons take place in:The teacher's studioGuitar lessons typically take place on these days and hours:Monday thru SaturdayGuitar Techniques:Lead guitar, Rhythm guitar, Open tuning, Slide Guitar, Performance, Improvisation, Jamming Skills, Reading Music, Music Theory, Scales and Exercises, Song Writing, Recording and Production, Guidance In Equipment SelectionYour first guitar lesson with me might include the following:We talk about styles they like (artists, bands) goals they have for music and previous experience if any and possible materials (books, iPod, gear, etc.). If they have anything prepared to play I listen to that.A guitar lesson with me might entail the following:Depends on the students goals, but a 30 minute lesson may be half fundamentals (scales, reading, drills) and half songs (whatever you want to play...Green Day, Taylor Swift or your own).The qualities I look for in an ideal guitar student might include the following:Anybody with a guitar who has a burning desire to improve!
