I have over 40 years teaching experience. Am adjunct professsor at Lakeland Community College and Baldwin Wallace. I was head of the guitar department for 15 years at Youngstown State U. Dana School of music. Owned and ran an entertainment agency over 20 years. Playing in one of the many bands I booked. Teach reading, classical, jazz, blues, fingerpicking, flatpicking, theory, and more. Find me on Facebook and Linked In. I can send you videos of some of my students
I love watching people learn.
George Gecik is a phenomenal teacher! George has a wonderful connection with his students and is versatile in many instruments. He has taught my 13 year old son guitar for the past 3 years and he is playing at a professional level. My son learned quickly and grew a love and appreciation for music because of George. This teacher is possibly one of the best teachers for Classical guitar and many other guitar styles which makes him a great teacher for any type of student.
George is very knowledgeable and has plenty of experience teaching. He’s also personable, patient and kind.
George’s approach was obviously correct as 45+ years later I am still playing !! I also still have a guitar I bought through him. I’m sure that his teaching techniques have changed throughout the years because I really don’t know if “Leaving on a jet plane” is one of the songs his current students would want to learn. :) I also know that one of his other students spent some time rocking on the Sunset strip in Hollywood. I used many of his techniques when giving lessons during my teaching days. He gave me a great foundation to play different genres with many groups over the years. Thanks for education!!
Really focuses on the fundamentals while having a good feel for different styles to build on. Great feel for the blues.
