First of all I begin by assessing your current skill/level with the guitar. Then creating a comprehensive plan of things to learn and practical exercises. A typical class would consist of learning musical/guitar theory, learning chords and later incorporating those into songs.
Hi there, If you were looking for someone to teach you how to play the guitar or teach you how to read music, I can definitely help you out! I was in your position many years ago, I have learned many tricks through the years when it comes to learning how to play the classical and acoustic guitar that I would love to share with you! I am currently in university and I would love to take the...
My teaching methods depend on the level, needs and wants of the student. I usually start by asking the student what they want to be able to do musically from this point. I listen carefully to them, and get a clear sense of where to begin an instruction plan that is quickly beneficial to them. From here I design practice instruction that is tailored to their needs.
Did you always want to learn to play the guitar but don't know where to start? Do you already have some experience in guitar playing and want to improve your skills? Do you want to learn reading staff notation and improve your musicianship? I am a Doctor of Musical Arts candidate at the University of Toronto offering in-home guitar lessons.
My teaching methods are very friendly. For me is really important working based on student´s musical interests... whatever you want to learn just let me know and we will work together to achieve that. I have vast experience teaching classical music, folk, pop, Latin-American etc.
My methods are completely based upon my personal experience and they continue to evolve as my students do as well. that being said right now i believe in three important factors which are first 1.the artist 2.the technician 3. the architect. All these three roles are important and i continually search for more.
My teaching method is tailored to each students specific needs,and uses a fun relaxed approach to ensure the student enjoys learning every step of the way.Regardless of skill or talent,my students expectations and needs are are of utmost importance to me.
My lessons are based around two important things: what the student wants to learn and techniques and skills that I as the teacher feel they will need. This is dependant on where the student is in their development. Teaching you what you want to know gets you interested and having fun and teaching you skills and techniques will help you develop faster.
My lessons are customized for each student based on their individual interests and learning style.
I'm an excellent tutor for beginners and intermediate guitar players who are looking to expand their knowledge in chord structure, scales and song writing. My lesson structure consist of elementary rudiments of music, time signatures, pentatonic scales, major and minor scale(modes), left and right hand proficiency and basic song structures.
I approach each student as an individual and I tailor lessons to each student's personal needs. I believe music is best learned when the student is engaged with and enjoying the material. I make sure students can work towards their own goals while providing them with the necessary background and theory to be successful with whatever they wish to pursue.
I adapt my teaching for each student. I prefer to develop a good base before going further. I like to stimulate our creativity instead of looking at the music as a mechanical practice. I would like to share my music philosophy with my students so they can express themselves artistically.
My teaching methode is simple , flexible and most of all adapted for youre specifications and tastes in music you prefere and love most...IN MY CLASS FIRST RULE IS , You make youre own dicipline for me to teach you better for what you need in youre specific formation.
Using the songs you want to learn, I explore theory, technique and build an understanding of the fundamentals of music. All this adds up to get you playing your favorite songs fast! Lessons will improve your ear so you can hear a song and play it from memory.
Learn to play by ear and feel the sound...
I use physical exercise to build the hand coordination and strength to accommodate advanced movements and rhythm of the student. Personal and on line resources are used to their maximum efficiency and results based competency of playing in a band or ensemble. I have taught many people in this practical manner. Learn songs that build your ability to play well in a live venue and feel confident.
I base my classes on a pre-organized template. The first five minutes focus on a warm-up specific to the lesson. The next 15 minutes involve practice from past lessons & diving into new concepts and techniques. The next 5 minutes focus on one of three aspects of practice: music theory, ear training or sight reading.
I value flexibility in my guitar teaching because I realize all of my students are unique. I have found that most people will have some existing everyday skills that can help them in their quest to become better musicians, even with little to no musical experience. For example, if you're a good conversationalist then you may be adept with improvisation.
I started playing guitar by myself ,as well as music theory.I wanted to understand what I was doing on the guitar, why did I have to play that certain chord with a specific guitar fingering position and why the chord was a C major 7 and why is it commonly used in the Blues style. That’s why the Theory comes after the guitar practice.
I tailor all of my classes to my students specific needs, depending on prior musical knowledge and goals they wish to achieve (note; no prior knowledge is required to start learning!). I outline a timeline suited specifically to them so that they have a tangible goal to reach and can track progress made.
My teaching is all built off empathy with my students. I make sure I tailor my lessons and teaching style to meet your needs and encourage my students to ask as many questions as possible. Guitar is one of the most important parts of my life, and I just want to help you discover the best hobby out there and find a new passion.
*Lessons focus on different aspects of music, including technique, theory, groove development, bass lines creation, harmony and repertoire. *I tailor lessons around student learning styles and levels, and ensure that all student concerns and needs are met.
I use popular step by step logical methodology books and live demos that ensure rapid progress each week. I tweak classes based on an individual's personal needs & studying capacity. I am a teacher if 15 years plus to students all ages.
Every student is in a different place with their learning, and every student is probably already doing some pretty unique things in their practice without realizing it. Any song can be broken down into simple parts, or just simplified all together. Just because you aren't playing a song exactly the way it is on a recording doesn't mean you cant play that song.
Practical song based exercises, complete songs, and music theory aimed towards composition. Self recording to analyze and prepare for performances. Understanding how songs work, not just reading tabs and cover songs of other peoples music. Encourage students to work towards becoming tutors themselves.
I take a practical - application approach to teaching both theory and guitar.
In addition to over 25 years teaching Guitar in a one on one setting I have experience with special needs group ensembles and organizing student recitals. I have always felt that the process of learning Guitar should be fun. My background includes attending the Music Department at Humber College and Trebas Institute.
Theory, Harmony, Improvisation, Ear Training, Composition, Scales, Arpeggios, Chords and Chord Progressions.
I try to keep a loose structure as I believe engagement is the most important thing. I try to balance each lesson with learning new techniques/theory and developing new songs that the student can play.
I am a flexible teacher with patience and kindness. My structure allows for students to build confidence and trust in me and develops a strong relationship amongst everyone in the room. I like to organize my daily routines so that students are set up for success.
