My teaching approach:I have been playing guitar in touring bands for over 25 years. I've traveled the US performing and know my instrument well! I own over 20 guitars and 7 amplifiers. Ive coered various styles from rock, to country, to R&B and Funk. TO metal to pop and dance. I target the student and use a unique approach as to help THEM get to their goals. This varies from person to person and I customize my lessons to help out each individual.My influences are:Edward Van Halen, Steve Vai, Angus Young, Judas Priest, XYZ, Counting Crows, Steve Stevens, etc. I could go on and on...My guitar lessons take place in:The teacher's studio or the student's homeGuitar Lessons with me take place in the following areas:I teach in WInston-Salem and Greensboro, NC. I also teach via Skype so location is boundless!Guitar Techniques:Lead guitar, Rhythm guitar, Performance, Improvisation, Jamming Skills, Scales and Exercises, Recording and Production, Guidance In Equipment SelectionYour first guitar lesson with me might include the following:I try to determine what the student already knows about guitar and then determine what it is that they want to accomplish with lessons. After this assessment, we determine a plan together and take the necessary steps to get to our goal. It is truly a unique evaluation for each person.A guitar lesson with me might entail the following:We either review prior lesson material and ask for questions. Then, we tackle new material and I send the student home with an MP3 of the lesson and also some paper/written documentation as well. The student will take this with them to use as a reference for their home study.The qualities I look for in an ideal guitar student might include the following:Someone who has a real desire to LEARN. They do their homework and comes prepared for the next lesson with the prior lesson already under their belt.
