In my lessons, I make it a point to understand the unique learning styles of each student. When I was growing up I had a string of guitar teachers who had a blanket approach to their teaching style, using tedious method books or just teaching song after song to their students, never pushing them any deeper. As a student, I found this approach to be uninspiring and it left me at a plateau in my progress as a guitar player. It wasn't until I was in college, studying jazz under the infamous musician and educator Joey Sellers, that I was able to see a real improvement in my playing. Over the years I have developed teaching techniques and strategies that allow my students to grow as musicians, not just guitar players. Teaching this way allows my students to improve faster and with more depth, saving years of frustration and tons of money for my students
I absolutely love teaching and playing music. It's what I live for! The satisfaction that I receive when a student has a musical epiphany or has mastered their favorite song is what keeps me going. I believe that learning a musical instrument improves quality of life and can help the world become a kinder and more compassionate place.
Ethan is both thoughtful and engaging. He does an awesome job creating an environment that is both challenging and fun
My son is not the easiest student to teach. Ethan has handled him with skill and grace. Ethan’s love of guitar is palpable and he excels at bringing his students along with him. I wholeheartedly recommend Ethan as a guitar teacher
