The music I teach on guitar (acoustic and electric), and ukulele includes pop, rock, blues, indie, folk and fingerstyle. I create lessons based on what genres and styles my students want to learn, while incorporating all the skills essential to playing the guitar. My methodology is student focused, and my students' interests, skills, and strengths shape my individualized lesson plans.
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.
- 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.
Absolutely ANYONE can learn the guitar, regardless of age, size, ethnicity or disabilities.
My technique in regards to private lessons will be completely structured around your own learning style and capabilities.
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 teach all levels of students (beginner, intermediate and advanced) with customized lessons adapted to the goals of each student. I create and share an enjoyable learning environment during my private lessons given into your home in the Montreal area. My method of teaching is simple, fun and progressive.
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
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 teaching methods are to learn basic chords, tabs and some music theory to get a basic understanding of how to play guitar. Then we will introduce rhythm and to finally combine the singing element to be able to play your favorite songs.
My approach to teaching relies on learning one song at a time and incorporating all the musical concepts within into the lesson. That way, after one song is learnt, the student will have a variable number of chords, techniques and riffs under his/her belt. By dissecting the song, it helps the student to visualize and understand the theory behind each passage.
My structure is pretty simple, I teach one technique at a time and we learn to implement it in a simple progression, master it and move on to a more advanced one as any teacher would do! I tend to push further and give you things to practice your fingers, I can also teach off my time whenever you need as we keep contact! I will share tabs to practice what can't be thought from a webcam to webcam...
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.
My teaching methodology is to push students to the best of their ability while also maintaining a fun enviroment. In other words...
My teaching method cover a wide variety of thechniques depending on the genre and instruments palayed. With young students, methods like Kodaly, Orff and Dalcroze are mixed to obtain the best result.
The method is teaching musical discipline - the earlier we start the easier is for everyone and the more productive.
I gear my classes towards the needs of the student. I speak with the student about what their musical goals are, and base my curriculum around that. These classes are meant for anybody with a passion and drive for music.
My goal is to help my students develop a great technique on the guitar, learn pieces that they enjoy, and have fun while learning. If you would like to become a confident guitar player, expand your creativity, and develop a strong, structured technique, please get in touch! I am offering a free introductory lesson to go over your goals.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
Mon cours se déroule sur une heure.Il se divise en 2 parties : 1) théorie musicale avec étude des techniques spécifiques au ukulélé (strumming, fingerpicking), apprentissage des accords, et de lecture de diagrammes d'accord, tablatures 2) pratique avec étude d'une chanson ou d'un morceau instrumental utilisant les accords appris, dans divers styles : folk, blues, jawaïen, rock...
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
To be sure of the quality of our tutors and teachers and their lessons, we collect the reviews of former students.
These reviews are authentic and guaranteed by Superprof.
Perfect! He's really friendly and patient, and always pays attention to what I want to learn next on guitar! Definitely recommend him!
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....
