I want my students to achieve their personal goals, whether it is to learn a simple song to sing to, pass Royal Conservatory of Music Exams, or learn any new techniques to expand and grow as a musician.
My teaching methods are flexible according to the needs of the student. As long as the student has an open mind and voice they'd love to work with, we are all set to go! I can teach half hour lessons or one hour lessons (or more if required) every week.
My teaching method includes tools that allow you to develop your own style and put it into practice through theorical and practical exercises.
I teach solely based on the student and what they excel in and strive to find a balance, ease and joyful approach to learning.
I believe that when the teacher is inspiring, the student becomes inspired. With my professional degrees, and much experience in teaching, I am sure I can offer you something useful. I customize my lessons to the student's needs, based on what they want to accomplish. I specialize in beginners.
I am a guitarist with thirteen years of experience who has been teaching students of all levels for five years. I will first teach my students the basics as well as the theory behind guitar playing, and gradually make our way to learning songs and understanding the significance of improvisation.
- Assesing students's personality type. - Creating the right lesson materials to use with my students that are consistent with: their personality type, their stated goals and their musical strength and weaknesses. - Getting my guitar students to do what they like so they actually make progress and become great players.
My main teaching manifesto is to teach whatever the student is wishing to learn. We will spend lesson time on whatever interests you the most. If you just want to learn songs and work on basic chords Im happy to indulge you but if you want to take a more well rounded approach and learn theory and note reading Im more than able to accommodate that as well.
The lessons I teach are organized around what the students are primarily interested in; the styles, bands, artists, guitarists, etc. whose music you would like to play. Once I know this, it becomes much easier to figure out what skills & knowledge you will need to learn in order to play that music.
I am readily able to utilize his unique skills and insights to transcend goals while maintaining the highest quality product, program development, productivity and standards. Safety, quality, productivity and growth are the four elements required for vital customer and company satisfaction. I harness these elements to achieve goals that produce perpetual results.
I base my classes on the basic chords and scale shapes, taught through popular/classic songs either chosen by myself or (preferably) by the students. Lessons take as long as they need to take (usually around 45, they start off longer and then settle as we find your path). I also teach guitar hero lessons, if anyone is interested.
Personal observation has taught me that it is most beneficial the balance the challenge of learning an instrument with an element of fun. So I find it advantageous to set realistic attainable goals. This serves to keep the student challenged enough but not deterred. I will be sharing fundamental exercises as well to train their ear and induce muscle memory.
I base my classes on giving the student the technique and skills that they require in order to play the pieces they would like to play. Every student is different and the lessons will be based around your own personal goals and the steps to achieve them.
My teaching methods incorporate learning music through the lens of a variety of fields. Music is a language and performance should be approached from the perspective of wanting to learn how to express a thought or an idea. Physics and science help us to understand how the sounds we make exist. Psychology and neurology offer infinite insight into how and why it is we perceive music the way we do.
I believe every student can learn. Start with the basics to build a strong foundation of confidence within all students. To build on students own creativity. Will teach students songs of their preference. Will teach new methods of playing through new songs. Stage presence techniques development. Opportunities to play live.
I provide the necessary material (a manual written by me) teaching chords, arpeggios, scales and soloing from the study of musical pieces of various kinds in order to immediately put into practice what learned. I give customized lessons based on the needs and wants of each student.
Absolutely ANYONE can learn the guitar, regardless of age, size, ethnicity or disabilities.
My teaching methods would vary in regards to each student talent but in general: Children: start from "Guitar Method for Young Beginners" by Scott. will learn to play melody and rhythm.
➢ A typical class lesson would often depend on the particular student. I differentiate how I teach based on a students interests, capabilities, and skill level. From soloing on the electric guitar to fingerpicking on an acoustic or just learning the basics (chords, scales, notes, etc) I really emphasize the foundation first. ➢ I pride myself on my patience and my love for teaching music.
My technique in regards to private lessons will be completely structured around your own learning style and capabilities.
I'm very flexible in my approach since I don't believe one size fits all when it comes to education and I aim to cater each lesson to the needs of the student. Though I'm primarily focused on songwriting and composition, I'm open to diving into whatever you're hoping to learn.
My teaching method offers a basic conditioning technique for finger strength, how to perform all the basic major chords A-G in full chord as well as bar/power chord form. these chords are taught with variations. How to read tabs and the frets. how to tune the guitar in both standard and harmonic tuning.
I absolutely love to teach the classical guitar. I have also experienced teaching half classical and half popular and that was a hit, students absolutely loved it! My classes are oriented towards your goals and interests as a student. I will therefore give you all the tools you need in order to achieve it and suggest material that is related to your musical tastes.
Everybody has there own sound let me help you find yours. Weather a beginner or a Clapton we can all advance in music theory and method. With practise practicing and some practise we can have you playing any song you'd like.
I have my Bachelor of Education degree and 20+ years of experience teaching music. Chords, notes, tab, strumming and picking are all included, Beginner to Advanced. I also address how all arts are connected and instrument care. Lessons are half hour or one hour per week and include interesting sheets and tips.
I work with each individual student to provide an education based around the individual. Everyone's goals are different, especially with music, and I focus on yours.
Depending on the level of my students, I will adapt my approaches, identify and analyze where they struggle the most and provide them with specific exercises to strengthen their abilities. I can teach jazz, rock and classical music depending on what my student wish to learn.
I start out with learning the feel of the instrument then move onto very basic finger exercises. On the side, I go over some music theory.
i believe any student must learn the basics before getting to play songs , therefore i always start with the fundamentals . correct fingerings , correct picking gesture and style , reading tabs , learning chords etc.
