My teaching approach:
I usually sit down and talk to the student for a few minutes to figure out what their immediate and long-term goal with the instrument are. After that is established, I like to start with the foundations of music theory and basic guitar technique. After the student has begun to acquire a basic command of the instrument, we move into learning songs. I let the student choose the songs and music they want to learn, while occasionally assigning songs of my choosing which I feel would help the student reach his/her musical goals. The student will be sent home with materials to
I have been playing guitar since I was 10 years old, and fell in love with it from the beginning. I am currently working in releasing my own work as a musician, and have a lot of experience performing. Learning guitar can be very repetitive and tiresome, so making sure that learning is enjoyable is a main priority.
NOW is the perfect time to sign up for beginning Guitar, Dobro, Bass, or Accordion lessons.I currently have guitar students between the ages of 12 and 60. I've found that kids need to be about 8-9 to be able to physically play the guitar, but younger kids can learn the dobro, bass, and accordion. Sign up NOW for a lesson time between 5:00-7:00 p.m. on weeknights. I currently play acoustic guitar and dobro in a local bluegrass band. Let me know what songs or what band you like, and I'll teach you THOSE songs in chords that are easier to play as a beginner, then teach you how to play those songs

I have been playing off and on professionally now for about 10 years. I am 26, and as a performer, I am addicted. I am teaching now to help others, especially kids, learn to jam with other people.

Things I focus on:
-Well rounded Musicianship
-Organized practice sessions
-Chord, and scale theory
-Reading music and tablature
-Basic Piano lessons to learn theory
-Voice Lessons (For those who want to sin
