About this pro

My teaching approach: When you take guitar lessons with me at SLC Guitar for you won't just given a bunch of random exercises or songs to play each week, but you will be coached, trained, and "built" as a player. This way you won't end up hitting a "plateau" or get caught up in all of the misconceptions and myths about "how to be a good guitar player" like so many other guitar players do. For more information check out SLC Guitar today! My influences are: Angus Young, Zakk Wylde, Slash, Eddie Van Halen, Jake E. Lee, Warren Demartini, and many more! My guitar lessons take place in: The teacher's studio Guitar lessons typically take place on these days and hours: Mon-Thurs 3-8pm Sat 11-3pm Guitar Techniques: Lead guitar, Rhythm guitar, Fingerstyle, Performance, Improvisation, Jamming Skills, Reading Music, Music Theory, Scales and Exercises, Song Writing, Guidance In Equipment Selection Your first guitar lesson with me might include the following: Depends on their experience level. I assess their current level of playing, goals, and aspirations. I watch them play, ask them questions and in the end I design a unique and custom game plan to help them reach their goals as quick as possible. A guitar lesson with me might entail the following: It varies from student to student as I customize each lesson to their own personal goals. In all situations I help them to integrate and apply what they learn so they are just learning random licks or theory but can use the knowledge to learn on their own or write their own music. Student like taking lessons with me for the following reasons: 1. I am very organized 2. They get customized lessons 3. There is structure and strategy to their lessons 4. The get results 5. They learn music and how to use what the learn & much more! The qualities I look for in an ideal guitar student might include the following: My ideal student would be committed to his or her guitar playing goals. I can teach you want to practice and how to practice but I can't practice for you. You need to be willing to do your part to achieve your goals which is practicing.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

When students come to me for guitar lessons they aren't just given a bunch of random exercises or songs to play each week but are coached, trained, and "built" as players. This way they not only progress much quicker and achieve their goals faster but also know what they are doing so they can in a sense teach themselves and apply what we learn to real musical settings.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

11 teachers over the years

Member of an exclusive world wide network of guitar teachers where I recieve training on how to teach the guitar properly- Only member is SLC

What types of students have you worked with?

Kids - teens - adults

Total beginners - Int/Advanced students who have some skills but are stuck in their musical development

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Just the other day 3 kids under the age of 10 who started from ground zero at the school know all the chords in 2 major keys, could play them in open position and transfer them all to power chords with root notes on the 6th and 5th strings. - They are going to be MONSTER guitar players!

ps. Thats besides all the songs, scales, guitar techniques, and songs they have transcribed by ear.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Just because someone can play the guitar doesn't mean they can effectively teach it. - Teaching and playing are two different skill sets.

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What do you want to accomplish with your guitar playing?

Like anything in life, aquiring a new skill takes committment, determination, and persistence. Are you committed to the process of learning the guitar and willing to do what it takes?

ps. If you have a good teacher that can guide through all the pitfalls you can do it in as little as 30min a day!!
