Focuses on developing in-hand experience of the instrument through scales, technical exercises, songs, harmonies and melodies.
My teaching styles range from Classical to Folk/Roots to Pop/Rock. I teach both by ear and by reading depending on the interests of the student. A focus on theory and history is also available, again, depending on the interests of the student.
My teaching methods would be considered a hands on practical approach of teaching the joy of being able to play the instrument and practice techniques and practical applications that will get anyone playing right away in their very first lesson, and as not to confuse or bombard with musical theory that may overwhelm and diminish some of the joy of learning any instrument.
I try to have some structure and have each lesson directly related to the final goal of learning the basics on guitar. i also dont mind just being there and helping out if you are learning your own personal songs from the internet.
I will base my classes off of where my students interests are. What genres they are interested in and what they want to do. Starting off with the basics, and getting their fingers used to pressing into the strings. Teaching them how to properly stretch their hands allowing full motion. Slowly moving them into basic music theory and scales.
I will approach our lessons by getting to know you and your musical preferences / skills and then figuring out what YOU want to learn. I will not teach you musical theories and complicated subjects off the bat we just want to get you playing.
I tailor lessons to individual student needs and goals. Some students want to learn songs, some need yo learn theory, some want to learn to improvise; I guide people to reach their musical goals with directed instruction and useful course material.
The music styles that I play are historically taught as an oral tradition. While it certainly does not hurt to be able to read and write musical notation, it is not necessarily advantages to be able to do so when learning traditional styles. There are subtle inflexions and accents in cultural music styles that cannot be translated into written form.
With regards to the guitar I believe in creating a comfortable environment, I believe in tailoring the guitar to the students needs and preferences. In the beginning students should learn songs they enjoy and love to play, and general musical principles should be abstracted from those songs later on.
The focus of my class is improvisational theory, with little note reading necessary other than assignments the material is based on strengthening ones ability to listen constructively to identify the key of song being worked with and having an arsenal available to approach what ever comes your way.
I base my lessons on the individual student. I won't try to make you learn what I want you to learn. With me you get to decide what I teach you. This ensures an engaging experience you don't want to miss.
I base each lesson on the individual goals of each student. By collectively agreeing on set short and long term goals, it will allow us to successfully reach our overall musical ambitions. Everyone wants to do something different musically. For some it is to learn to play in a band for fun, for others it may be to read music or to perform a solo concert.
My characteristics as a guitar tutor is a professional experience sharer with passion, patience, and organized teaching structure. In individual class, I will firstly design personalized course based on the students' levels and goals. In group class, I will use group dynamics to promote the learning effects based also on the students' levels and goals.
I am a self taught musician. Everything I know from playing a break beat on the drums, shredding out a guitar solo or producing a record for artists I have learned by myself. What I mean by this is that I chose exactly what I wanted to learn and when.
I usually tailor my lessons to my student’s level. I use diagrams and tabs to make everything much easier to memorize.
Every single person learns differently and so I tailor my lessons specifically to each student.
Through the 14 years that I have been teaching, I have made effective techniques as well as I have left aside others that are not so much. My general ideology nowadays is: No matter how technical the exercise is, it must always be musical and stimulating for the new performer, even for the one who has never even played in his life.
I teach beginner/intermediate guitarists/vocalists. For beginner guitarists/vocalists, lessons start with learning correct posture/ergonomics, along with basic musical fundamentals (tempo,pitch,rhythm, etc.). Besides first lesson basics, I make accommodations and lesson plans around where students wish to take the musical journey! I also teach Beginner/Intermediate/Advanced Songwriters.
The approach I use is based on Kolb’s experimental learning cycle. The concept was developed to reflect the fact that learning is an on-going and continuous process. It stresses the need for practice and feedback so that the process comprises of a continual series of circular patterns based on experience.
I will walk you through everything that you need to, and want to know (theory optional!).
My main focus will not be to teach you to parrot what I do, but rather to show you the approach to music which will get good results. I will let you choose which songs you'd like to learn and show you the process of learning a song by ear, which is much more useful than reading tabs.
I spot the core problem and solve that. Endlessly learning scales and chords does not help if you have problem with time or understanding music. It is there, I aid my students so that they learn fast. I help students to focus on music. Often that is lost attending to theory and technique.
I teach beginners & intermediate students. Fingerstyle Strumming Fingerpicking Rhythm Tab Sheets & Solo Parts I'll be happy too help you out until you learn to master on your own. Can teach acoustic and electric guitar in a range of styles. Guitar lessons in your home.
Specializing on a one to one basis to nurture and encourage progress on a personal level. At the student's own pace and from their own level of understanding a natural progression will unfold almost immediately. Under my supervision progress will be swift and fun.
I go through some music theory,find out where the student is going with their music and build on that.Chords,bar,and basic chords,song writing,using song with guitar.Bends,pull offs,hammers etc.Proper positioning tuning and stringing the guitar appropriately.I use Blues as a strong base for the music and span out from there.
Being able to make a lesson as practical yet weaving in theoretical practices is essential, that is the aim! Whether your goal is to play the opening riff to your favourite tune, my goal is to show you HOW the music works together
Each 45 minute class is focused on getting my student to their next level while having fun. How many classes per week is up to each student. They will bring their own notebook, pen and preferably guitar so they can practice the lessons at home.
I fell in love with guitar because it meant I was able to play the music I loved. My method would be to first teach both the basics of chords and tabs, and then to use that to play whatever the student wanted! If they gave me a list of songs to play I could work out how best to do this and teach it to them.
My teaching method, it depend to the group of students that i am going to teach, and according to their vision, some they want to learn music for fun , other for professional and other for exam preparation like ABRSM exam, so i teach them according to their vision ' like those who are preparing ABRSM exam i teach them According to ABRSM Sylabus, those for fun i prepare for them a package of...
The Tools of the Methodology implemented in the courses for Beginners, Medium and Advanced are PDF, WORD, POWER POINT and MP3, the method will depend a lot on the qualities of the student, for example, if he knows absolutely nothing about the guitar, the indicated method is the beginner, in which the chords, exercises, structure and notion of the instrument are studied, etc.
