My teaching methodology consists of three main techniques: visualizations through chord diagrams and in depth tablature, gamification and self-learning/motivation. In a typical class I would first take up any questions/concerns associated with the previous lesson. Next we would either: 1: Continue with the song that has been brought in by the student, 2: Start a new song altogether, listen to the song along with the student and go over sections of the song that present the student with difficulty or 3: Teach students about various fingerstyle techniques applicable to their current abilities. We would conclude the lesson by summarizing the key points learned throughout the lesson. My fundamental philosophy is what makes me different from other teachers. My philosophy states: "if you are forced to play a song that you are not passionate about you will not play it well. On the contrary if you choose a song that you are passionate about you will play well and will love the process of playing! Practicing guitar will no longer feel like a chore but rather a stepping stone to reach your destination of completing the song". Overall, I teach both beginner and intermediate guitar players from all ages interested in fingerstyle acoustic guitar.
Hi my name is Larry and I have been playing guitar for over 8 years; predominantly fingerstyle acoustic guitar. I was a student at Long & McQuade, ProGuitarStudios and Merriam Music. I have been a private guitar teacher for well over a year teaching pop and jazz songs to my students.
Rate depends on the student's level.
Currently obtaining OSSD, Achieved Grade 8 Music Award out of 350 students, 1.5 years of private teaching experience in fingerstyle guitar.
Perfect! Fun way of learning guitar.
I became of student of Larry's after wanting to play the music I listen to for years. He is very proficient in various genres, specifically teaching me how to play hip-hop songs. His teaching methods are really helpful and are good for any beginner. One particular experience I've had with Larry is: After a song came out by my favourite artist, Larry helped me dissect the song. Slowly with his help, I would become familiar with each verse, bridge, and chorus and not only did I learn how to play the song, but I also became better at playing the guitar. I recommend Larry to other Superprof members because as he is always dedicated to the craft and has a desire to help others improve and reach their goals.
Larry is one of the most trustworthy people I know! When teaching, he is clear, patient, and attentive to each of his student's needs. Larry was my tutor for most of 2020, and he was able to teach me effectively both in person and online. If you're looking for a reliable, experienced, and reputable tutor, he is the person to go to!
Amazing great teacher; makes everything so easy to understand! He's punctual, reliable, and explains everything so clearly. Got my money's worth!
I have been receiving lessons from Larry for the past year, and he is a great teacher. I never had experience playing guitar before but he taught me everything I needed to know to play at an intermediate level as of now. It's great to be able to play my favorite songs to my friends and family!
