During the lessons, I keep the subject matter fun and relevant to the student by focusing on what the student wants to learn and then applying it to broader musical concepts such as technique, theory, improvisation.
I'm a musician who has 12 years experience playing guitar. I've recorded in professional studio environments, played in many types of groups/ensembles and perform live on a regular basis. I specialize in electric guitar but I can teach acoustic as well.
I base my lessons on the skill level of the student I am working with and what kind of musician they would like to be. I believe for a beginner player, learning the basic chords and honing in on rhythmic patterns and an understanding of timing are very important.
My teaching methods are based on a very direct method. I know how people think when a guy speaks of things that they never knew or never understood. I personally disagree with the classical way of teaching so I prefer going on an oriented way. Depending on the subject, I can go on a very theoretical approach, as I can go on an oral tradition manner of teaching.
Methods depend on individual student needs, level and interests, yet may include...
My teaching methods are built on a modern approach that utilizes the technologically advanced world we live in. Lesson plans are completely catered to each student, emphasizing the enjoyment of the instrument in hopes to build a passion that can be carried forward for the rest of your life.
my teaching methods will bring you through a series of different techniques and approaches to playing the guitar. I will go through a series of finger exercises to improve dexterity, bring you through different levels of musical theory, and of course learn your favourite songs.
I start classes by giving the student a fundamental understanding of how the guitar works, and learning what type of music you are most passionate about. This foundation leads to a basic learning routine to build proper technique, to quickly jump into learning your favourite songs and eventually writing your own music.
I structure my lessons on a student-by-student basis, but always with the underlying strategy of building good playing habits, and preparing students to be ready for the next level. My students all learn how to read, write and understand music.
Throughout the 5+ years of teaching music all over Wellington, New Zealand, the following responsibilities were required: • Tutoring students of all ages - from 6 to 60, and of all skill levels - from beginners to advanced. • Developing each student’s skill in playing guitar and expanding their knowledge and appreciation of music.
Many of my inspirations come from early blues/bluegrass, classical and rock musicians, such as Bill Monroe, Muddy Waters, CCR, Ferdinando Carulli, Metallica, Johnny Cash, Pink Floyd ect. I believe everyone and anyone is capable of acquiring the art of music through determination and the willingness learn. All students contain untapped potential, seeing that spark is my greatest passion.
I have a variety of methods that I use: 1) go by the book 2) show and tell - chord progressions, theory and reading 3) tips for basic preparation for practice away from the lesson - what you do at home counts 4) mentoring - other musicians and song genres
My teaching method is same as music schools. I start with teaching the basics, such as teaching my students how to read notes, how to hold the guitar, then I start to teach them easy classical pieces to play. primarily, I teach classical guitar to my students, besides it, I teach them jazz style to build a strong technical foundation.
My teaching methods are always focused around student-driven learning, and I strive at all times to maintain a relaxed, welcoming, and encouraging atmosphere in my teaching spaces. My intention is to make students feel that education can and will work for them by ensuring that I remain patient, adaptable, and enthusiastic as an educator.
I can teach you how I approach guitar. I can also teach you how to practice and create good learning habits. I can provide resources for you to improve to an intermediate level. I specialize in Jazz chords and technique.
I will teach the students the fundamental structures of rock guitar playing, as well as giving a number of techniques and tricks to advance the students' ability and enjoyment of their instrument in ways you had no idea possible!!
My teaching methods will be based less on theory and more on physical skills, such as finger picking, hammer on's, harmonics and over all finger style methods and techniques that will allow you to reciprocate most songs you know or can think of.
I customize music lessons for each individual student focusing on good technique, rounded playing abilities and functional theory. With some of the ‘hacks’ (as my students like to call it) I’ve been able to help hundreds of players achieve their goals in much less time than they thought.
my own teaching tech is easy to understand i begin with the knowledge of the instrument and some basic example of what the student can do with the guitar, and through simple questions to the student to know his level of skill in the guitar and help him to get the confidence to undertake, the conscious and harmonic study developing his manual dexterity and encouraging the reading of musical...
My methodology is to approach teaching with a mix of calmness and enthusiasm. Learning an instrument is frustrating, so when a student makes a mistake calmness does wonders. The same goes for enthusiasm when a student makes a breakthrough. I believe in teaching in small increments and teaching students to "walk before they run" when learning a piece.
I learned to play using YouTube videos, so I tailor my teaching to the student's. There is no proper way to play, only the way you're most comfortable with. I love teaching songs such as worship songs and chord progressions.
I believe firstly in hands-on teaching. All my students have to have an instrument that they bring to a lesson, and we will practice and learn in real time. I don't mind sending students home with some homework, but only after they have sat with me and practiced some of the techniques.
I base classes on theory and practice. Music Theory is strait forward. Practice lessons are learning to play popular songs on guitar. The actual stage experience makes me a real thing compared to others. The classes are meant for beginners, intermediate and advance.
I teach guitar as a stress relieving tool. I insist my students block out the world and get lost in the realm of creation and diversity. Practicing and playing guitar is equivalent to meditation if done correctly.
My teaching methods are whatever you feel like learning whether it's scales, chords, or just freeform jamming. We could also discuss music and see where you we go from there sometimes its great to see what you are into rather than what you wanna play.
I like to start with a fun piano course such as the Alfred's all in one piano method. Then I can add the RC repertoire if the student wishes to learn that method later on. I like to teach children and adults theory and music pieces on piano.
My teaching methods vary depending on the client. Sometimes I will teach a client a full hour guitar lesson, whereas some prefer to do 30 minutes guitar, and 30 minutes of theory.
The first thing I say to a student is that there are only twelve notes in music that you need to remember. As cynical as that may seem, I find it is the most effective way to help a student understand what it is that makes music so special. My goal as a teacher is then to show the student how to use these twelve notes to achieve the sound they want.
Lessons are fun and can lay the foundation for creativity and a love of music, or challenging and promote musicianship and mastery. I make sure the goals of the student are the main focus, while tying to open doors to new areas of interest.
Usually, I will gauge the student's skills first. From there if the student is a complete beginner we would start to with the fundamentals (finger placement, stretching and dexterity exercises), in the same lesson we would also go over some Chord shapes and/ scales.

Perfect! Comment from my 13-year-old son (Sean's student): "My teacher, Sean, has done a good job of teaching me how to analyze music in my opinion. He asks me questions to make sure I understand what we’re doing as well as answering any questions I have....
