Guitar lessons with Pat McMahon are for New & Beginner, to Intermediate Level guitarists. Lessons provide an open minded approach That allows the student to learn what they want to learn, weather it be their favorite song, or a structured lesson plan to progress skill level. I want my students to be inspired to play and get started on what gives them that inspiration right away.
Music has the power to change the way you see the world and to connect you with other people.
I love to learn more about music everyday and to play with others. Writing music is one if the most joyous things in the world to do, especially with good friends.
Teaching is an amazing tool for an active musician! it is fulfilling in the fact that you get to share what you know to help others grow, but also privides consistent practice on the basics which helps and retain fluidity for the teacher.
Patrick is awesome! He alters the classes based on my pace and goals. He's never shy to spend a little extra time if needed. He also sends detailed notes after class to brush up on what we went through. He is more than happy to answer questions between classes. He helped me a lot in picking the right guitar for me. He's also pretty flexible with scheduling. I'm very happy I started to learn how to play the guitar from him!
Typically students will have the opportunity to tell me what skill level they are currently at and what their goals are. From there we will agree on a plan to accomplish these goals and dive right in!
I am a self disciplined musician and have been playing for 13 years.
Lessons are a flat rate of 20$ an hour.I have taken 2 courses of high school curriculum Jazz Rock Ensemble and sparse private lessons, mostly with close friends.
I do currently study Music Theory, Guitar Method.
Lessons are $20/hr
Teaching started naturally as playing around became a more common thing for me. People will ask for a lesson or we may just get really into conversation and it will happen right there.
Personally, teaching is a great way to keep up practice on routine parts of the music "language".
Mostly ages 16-30
43rd Annual Telluride Bluegrass Festival.
Some of the most technical musicianship I have ever seen, in a dream of a town, at the most eco-friendly festival in the world.
it was for work/vacation and was a wealthy learning experience in music and event management.
Look for someone that wants to work on what you want to learn and gets you started right away!
