My name is Curtis Stith. I'm a professional musician and music teacher. I do in-home lessons for kids and adults.
My teaching philosophy is to foster and protect the joy that is inherent in music, especially in children. I use resources and teaching methods that keep students engaged, and interested, so that they can learn in ways they enjoy. I also strive to teach kids how to take initiative in their own learning experience, and over time I work towards achieving a lesson that is directed more and more by the student, as they become more comfortable being responsible for their musical education. When I was taking music lessons myself, I found that learning this skill also helped me in my academic pursuits, as well as many other areas of my life.
I teach lessons in:
Guitar (acoustic and electric)
My favorite part about teaching is watching my students get better and better and achieve their goals!
