Banjo classes, 5 strings, Scruggs technique. For anyone who wants to learn to play the banjo, know the history of traditional music and the main exponents of the banjo. I am a composition student at the music school dim. We would approach subjects about music theory and harmony.
I welcome students of all age groups and have taught Guitar, Mandolin and 5 String Banjo for 40+ years. My lessons are adapted for the level of the student's skills and interests and incorporate music theory where appropriate.
I teach an engaging song based method, which is customised to you. Teaching you how to play a song you love as soon as possible helps with your confidence and is overall more enjoyable. I can teach a range of songs and styles which help you with the correct technique, building a foundation of songs while introducing helpful theory. I can also teach you through AMEB studies.
Passionate about folk music and string instruments for many years, I teach the different instrumental techniques in order to play all kinds of popular music (Folk, Pop, Rock, Jazz etc .. .).
My teaching method is fun, getting the students up and playing MUSIC is my goal, not just finger exercises. It is important to me that I motivate the students to want to learn and progress their skills and make it fun at the same time.
I prefer working around pieces (preferably chosen with the student) that allow to integrate different concepts or aspects of the practice of the guitar (Arpeggio game, the pick, new agreement to learn etc ...). In addition, I adapt to the students' desires and musical preferences, as well as their goals (being able to play in a group, preparing a music school, perfecting in a specific style).
I teach all ages and all levels of ability are welcome - from complete beginners through to diploma level. Learn solely for pleasure, playing music you enjoy or find new challenges by working through the grades. - Which subject(s) do you teach? I teach all styles of Guitar, Banjo and Mandolin; as well as music theory, ensemble tuition and performance workshops.
Guitarist for 25 years I am above all a great passion. Whether beginner, a little more or at an advanced level I can teach you new techniques or you correct your flaws to cutback your game. The courses that I create myself was equally inspired by the course I able to conduct my experiences as a guitar studio or stage. In a general frame I adapt to the needs and tastes of each.
Each Student is different, as thus, so should the lessons be. I'm dyslexic, so appreciate what a relaxed learning environment can do for learning. YOUR taste in music should be what's focused on, as no one wants to learn what they're not interested in! Music should be played so prepare for learning by doing.
Whether you are a complete beginner or an advanced player I have the knowledge and experience to help you achieve what we all want to achieve as musicians: the ability to express ourselves through music and to find great enjoyment in doing so.
