    Raleigh, NC · Jason Derrick

    My teaching approach: My teaching approach is very student-centered- I teach what my students want to learn! Additionally, my teaching is very song-based, in that, I use songs to teach fundamental concepts rather than a bunch of drills and exercises. I believe, especially for beginners, it's critical to keep motivation at a high level, as that is what will ultimately keep beginners from burning out early. Learning guitar is not particularly easy, but I firmly believe anyone with the right guidance and dedication can learn to rock! More about me here: http://www.tarheelguitar.com/my-teaching/t
