My teaching approach:
Learn guitar by building a repertoire. Ear training, music theory, improvisation, playing technique, and practice methods are all incorporated into the songs you learn.
My influences are:
Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Gary Moore, Pete Townshend, The Allman Brothers, Robben Ford, Robert Johnson, Howlin' Wolf, Elmore James, Albert King, Freddie King, BB King, Jimmy Page, Keith Richards
My guitar lessons take place in:
The teacher's studio
Guitar lessons typically take place on these days and hours:
Lead guitar, Rhythm guitar, Fingerstyle, Slide Guitar, Performance, Improvisation, Jamming Skills, Reading Music, Music Theory, Scales and Exercises, Song Writing, Recording and Production, Guidance In Equipment Selection
Your first guitar lesson with me might include the following:
The introductory lesson involves determining the student's goals and musical taste. Then I will determine his/her knowledge of music theory, and ability to play chords, scales, and arpeggios.
A guitar lesson with me might entail the following:
You play some chordal and scalar exercises, and then something from your repertoire. Then we will discuss new exercises and ideas to incorporate into your daily practice. There will be some music theory discussion, followed by ear training (finding the chords, hearing the intervals, recognizing riffs).
The qualities I look for in an ideal guitar student might include the following:
An ideal guitar student is someone who is eager to learn and has a desire to play regularly.
