About this pro

My teaching approach: I like to focus on what the individual likes to learn whether it be to read music, learn some chords, scale exercises, or a song they love. I do like to stress the importance of reading music, but also like to make sure the student is learning. After all, guitar playing is suppose to be fun! As far my equipment, i'm ready to bring any guitar required to the lesson with an amp, and my laptop. My influences are: Soo many, but to name a few Metallica, Green Day, Nirvana, Seether, Days of the New.My guitar lessons take place in: The teacher's studio or the student's homeGuitar lessons typically take place on these days and hours: Mon: 3:30pm - 8pm Tuesday: 3:30pm - 8pm Wednesday: 3:30pm - 8pm Thursday: 3:30pm - 8pm Saturday: 11:00am - 4pmGuitar Techniques: Lead guitar, Rhythm guitar, Fingerstyle, Vocal Accompaniment, Performance, Improvisation, Jamming Skills, Reading Music, Music Theory, Scales and Exercises, Recording and Production, Guidance In Equipment SelectionYour first guitar lesson with me might include the following: Usually i assess their skill level, and from there we figure a course for their playing to take. For absolutely beginners, i usually use a guitar book to build up their music reading skills/rhythm, and get their hands use to fret board.A guitar lesson with me might entail the following: Depending on the student, we can work from a book, or a manuscript filled lessons i teach them to practice. If the student is advanced enough, i like to start with scales, get the fingers warmed up, a little sight reading to keep the skills sharp, and work on the main lesson (improvisation, a song, a piece, scale studies, or theory. .The qualities I look for in an ideal guitar student might include the following: My ideal guitar student is one who shows enthusiasm for music/guitar, who is willing to practice, shows discipline in the lessons, and who is consistently in the lessons every week. The minimum amount of time to practice is at least 20 minutes four times a week. More is definitely preferably, but i understand schedules don't always allow for that.
