My teaching approach: A tailored combination of basic musical skills, a fostering of creativity and critical thinking skills, performance skills, and advancement as a competent, well-rounded musician. The Aaron Shearer Method is utilized for efficient music-reading and precision in technique. Music composition is encouraged among all students.
Guitar Techniques: Students will be learning classical guitar technique using the Aaron Shearer Method.
Your first guitar lesson with me might include the following: Determine music reading skills, understanding of rhythm and music notation. Posture and placement of hands discussed and confirmed at the beginning of every lesson. Names and parts of the guitar identified. Open string names and first notes introduced.
A guitar lesson with me might entail the following: Always begin with review, review, review. Posture, position of hands, note names. Student plays through each assigned piece with feedback and correction.
Helping students realize their abilities to learn new things and accomplish complex tasks through critical thinking. And when they are able to play the music confidently and they enjoy it, there is nothing better to witness.
