I try to make an environment of caring about my students
goals and having a lot of patience for them to learn. We
go at the pace the student is comfortable with. The student
is free to ask questions at any time during the lesson.
I enjoy teaching because it still keeps me in the field of
music where I can still use my talent and knowledge
to share with other musicians.
Jim is extremely patient and knows a lot more about how the other instruments interact and are arranged He can help you on all levels and plays a mean electric lead guitar..
We started learning songs right from the beginning!
When I first started, I had no.knowledge of the guitar. James showed me all the chords and rhythm and I was playing songs in no time.
In the beginning of the lesson with a new student I am all ears. I find the level there at and ask them what style of music that they want to play, I would work with the student as to what are their goals and dreams.
Most of my knowledge of music came from self practice and playing with professional and non professional musicians. I would listen to records and Cds endlessly and and learn the lead and rhythms. I put a lot of time in when I first started playing.
$30 per hour
$25 for 45 min.
$20 per half hour
Teaching to me still allows me to play and share my talents and knowledge. It is the next best thing to performing. I decided to teach when I decided not to play out anymore,
I worked with beginners to experienced players and have seen beginners learn at a quick pace from folk to rock,
We played at a club in Northeast Phila called Casavas. All 4 members of the band brought friends abd relatives & we filled filled the place pretty good. The owner was very happy with the turn out. We had a lot of support that night and it was a great time.
I would say find a teacher who has a lor of patience, understanding and who has played professionally. Find a teacher who is experienced in the genre you have interest in.
Ask questions as to does the teacher have patience, good listening skills and has he played professionally. Students should ask the teacher their success in dealing with new students.
