Music learning can be challenging, but it’s also a lot of fun. Trying to incorporate a wide range of teaching aspects from technique to music theory and performance, I help students to find personal achievement in a professional and organized environment, developing confidence and independent learning skills.
I am offering laid back classes for the individual/group looking to get started in guitar but do not necessarily want to get bogged down in all the theory. I will go over basic chord structures and progressions with you and will learn songs alongside you.
I love to approach the guitar from a different angle with all of my students. I use alternative methods such as open tunings to help beginner and intermediate students approach the guitar more creatively. This helps them feel good about how they sound and become inspired to play more. The more you play the better you get.
I base my lessons upon gaining basic skills and learning some melodies at first and then progress on to learning music theory however i will always split lessons up so that me and the student will go through something they're excited to learn and practice.
The teaching method depends completely on the student, I would generally take it easy but if I see a strong response we'll be working hard ! I'm still learning myself so I never get bothered in going through concepts someone still needs to learn.
I teach guitar and bass to all levels of ability and can cover almost any style. Filthy funk bass lines, atmospheric guitar improvisation, the fundamentals of jazz or blues, composition and music theory, performance psychology and anything else besides: I can help you explore any aspect of music.
I teach beginner to intermediate for guitar or music theory. I start with the basics of guitar playing, then guided by where in music a student is passionate, give them step by step help to progress towards what interests them but with a firm understanding of broader concepts of music.
I base my classes on what the student wished to gain from the lessons (This can be theory, Technique, Improvisation or educating on tone). I aim to make lessons fun and musical. Lessons will usually focus on implementing techniques to a song rather than just working on technical exercises all the time.
Enthusiastic, hard working, dependable and knows what it is like being a music student and from personal experience what the do's and don'ts are. I believe in a very practical method of teaching, getting the student playing soon but at there own speed.
My approach will differ depending on what each individual student wants to achieve. For a student that seriously wants to play classical, I would enforce the same technical and musical framework that I was brought up on. For students who are looking for something more relaxed, I can easily adapt to what they’re looking to get out of lessons.
I base my classes on the students music preferences. I listen to what kind of music you want to be able to play in advance then will teach relevant technical skills and practice methods so you can shred those songs you've always wanted to learn.
I am very passionate about music and the theory that encompasses it, I love teaching. I can teach any genre and I would be happy to teach you anything you wanted to learn. I have a very broad understanding of a music which helps me to get a feel for the different musical directions that all my students are wanting to go in.
My methodology is based on essential foundation skills carefully adapted to an individuals personal needs, age, aspirations and capabilities.
The whole lesson is designed for you! It will be your goals, guided by me, that will lead the lessons, but I will vary with with things to help improve you and make you a great musician, not just an instrumentalist. I have over 18 years of guitar & music experience. I have a passion for creating in music, not just learning.
