Thad O'Donnell Guitar Lessons
My teaching method takes a comprehensive approach to the mastery of the basics of guitar playing. With a foundational understanding of the basic aspects of music theory students will have a fundamentally sound approach to mastering whatever level of guitar playing they aspire to. Focusing on mastery of the fundamental building blocks of music will put any student on the right path to ultimately mastering the instrument.
I love teaching music and have different plans for each level of player. Beginner, Intermediate, and can even help Adept to Advanced players. At the beginner level I focus more on repitition and getting core skills for playing songs by establishing small goals, as well as introducing them to a half modal half scale based outlook on major and minor fretboard approaches as to not get stuck in the box that so many intermediate players struggle in. For intermediate I focus more on the creative fluidity and unlocking the ability to have fretboard freedom. For adept to advanced I offer anyone without the basic music theory knowledge a comprehensive understanding of that, and can teach more advanced chordings, modal approaches, and technique based soloing.
