The music I teach on guitar (acoustic and electric), and ukulele includes pop, rock, blues, indie, folk and fingerstyle. I create lessons based on what genres and styles my students want to learn, while incorporating all the skills essential to playing the guitar.
My methodology is student focused, and my students' interests, skills, and strengths shape my individualized lesson plans. We will learn the songs and techniques that a student wants to learn, though along a route that also includes the skills and knowledge (ear training, theory, various chords and playing styles) needed to be be a well rounded guitar player and musician.
Most importantly I believe in lessons that are friendly, fun, and respectful, and where both teacher and student can enjoy the joys of music, while consistantly working towards set goals.
*I have several new openings, and am currently accepting new students at my home again.
I am a seasoned guitar player having played guitar for over 10 years, and teaching for the last 2.5. I have been teaching private lessons for the last year and a half, and I have volunteered as a guitar instructor at several youth organizations for a year before I began teaching professionally.
I have completed the Level 8 certification in Classical Piano and Theory from the Royal Conservatory of Music (hoping to start piano lessons by the end of the year too!) and have a ton of experience playing small live acoustic shows around Toronto ranging from small private events to coffee houses to street festival busking.
I also have nearly a decade of experience working with youth, having worked with children and teens of all ages through several organizations.
Police Background check completed.
Perfect! Arthur is a fantastic guitar teacher! I started taking lessons with my sister and we began by knowing nothing about playing guitar. Arthur is extremely knowledgeable and tailored the lessons to our musical interests and was very patient along the way. He came right to the house which was convenient and was always well prepared.
Holly and Caitlin have been great guitar students! They've been working hard, and lessons are always fun. Glad to have linked up with them!
Perfect! He's really friendly and patient, and always pays attention to what I want to learn next on guitar! Definitely recommend him!
Michael is very keen on learning guitar, and works hard on accomplishing the goals we've been setting for him. Keep it up!
Arthur is a compassionate and reliable teacher. He takes time to teach without losing patience. Some teachers will easily become agitated when one makes mistakes. However, Arthur is very professional with teaching. He ensures that I make improvements on a step by step basis, and he encourages me to strive towards excellence. Arthur explains ideas very thoroughly to help me have a strong understanding of unfamiliar concepts. He is committed to giving services of various kinds and is devoted to teach. Overall, Arthur's services have been outstanding and absolutely worth it.
WOW, this is the best teacher I have ever had. He always teaches you very well and thorough until you understand, he makes you have fun playing guitar and not a chore. BEST TEACHER EVER!!!
I've known Arthur for a long time. I've always wanted to learn the guitar growing up and he was always eager and dedicated to help me out. He taught me how to play and understand the guitar in ways I couldn't find online in places like youtube and so on. Also, his style of teaching helped me find ways to get through my frustrations of learning it haha. I would definitely recommend!
