I am someone who has loved music all their life and I want to share that by teaching others. I've had music teachers for most of my life so I know what it feels like to have a good (or a bad) guitar teacher. From a classical background I began learning contemporary music such as classic rock, blues, jazz and metal and achieved Grade 8 with Rockschool.
I give face-to-face guitar lessons to students of all ages and abilities, starting from age 6. My students routinely take the Classical Guitar Grade Exams offered by London College of Music, and ABRSM, and my electric guitar students had had success up to Grade 3 working with the Trinity Rock syllabus.
Have been playing both electric and acoustic guitar for 10 years, in a variety of styles. Can provide help with both solo and group performance. Will focus on teaching core skills needed to be a well-rounded, versatile guitarist, such as understanding of key, scales and improvisation. Happy to focus on lead guitar, rhythm, or classical acoustic as the student desires.
I take a very friendly & open minded approach to teaching Guitar/Bass, knowing that everybody who picks up the instrument wants to get something different out it. I can teach a whole range of music, songs and techniques and will help with any flaws that you may feel you have in your playing.
My teaching method is to always encourage an open and creative learning environment for all my students, both in groups and one-to-one, where the only two goals are to work towards clear, concise goals, and of course, having fun in the process.
I work holistically taking into account the learning style of individual students and adapt my approach to their needs. I cover a broad range of Arts and Academic criteria ranging from teaching the guitar and stylistic jam session to grade 8 in Rockschool and ABRSM in addition to IT coding and advanced computer skills.
I think the best way to start to teach someone is to let him copy you with your eyes, so if ill plress some strings on guitar he will lok on mine hand and try to copy, after he would be used to it without thinking where im putting mine fingers then it will become very easy.
Every single person learns differently and so I tailor my lessons specifically to each student.
Music is ultimately a tool of self-expression and your instrument is an extension of that, so my role as a teacher of both guitar and music, is simply to aid my students in their journey to discover their own musical identity. This means working at a pace unique to each individual, and also tailoring the material based on the students personal tastes and vision.
I like to make the lessons fun, on a one to one basis, can provide home visits in Newton Abbot area. Starting with open chords or riffs, moving onto complete songs, playing along at a slower tempo to begin with then increasing tempo to original. Using some of the popular books etc, teaching materials.
I favour an individually tailored approach to private tuition. I try to find out what the student’s goals are, what music they are motivated to learn and what prior experience they have and then try to help them find a path towards improving their skills and knowledge. I try to make lessons fun, engaging and relevant.
I approach each topic with patience and understanding; there is no rush. Learning something can be frustrating, and so we will talk about how your perspective of the situation affects your ability to take in information.
My teaching methods will be very practical, I have a lot of exercises that were given to me by my teachers and I know that they work. I also have a lot of different music and arrangements that I can give to students of varying levels.
I am a freelance musician, composer, teacher and workshop facilitator who enjoys sharing my passion for music with others. I teach a variety of styles including jazz, funk, world, rock, pop, folk, classical and can adapt to a pupil's needs or tastes. - Which subject(s) do you teach? Alto Saxophone - I teach mostly in a jazz/funk/pop/soul style but am just as comfortable teaching classical sax.
Using either or both pop and classic teaching techniques. - Posture: teaching, encouraging by reminding all the time how that facilitates learning and performing. - Tuning: Using both, tools or simply your ears. - Scales: Importance of how chords are based on scales for either playing or composing.
I believe that each student learns in their own way. The most important thing is to recognise how to engage the student of all levels and hopefully inspire them to re-engage with their instrument on a regular basis. I have been teaching for many years and enjoy the discovery of music with my students, this leads to mutual and ongoing creativity between teacher and student.
I use the ‘Yamaha Technique’ alongside ‘A Common Approach’ to ensure students get more from lessons other than just learning how to play songs. I cover multiple music styles with a large repertoire, knowlege and awareness of syllabi to draw upon.
My method of teaching for the first few weeks is the same for everyone - learn the basics which will be the same for each player. Once a few basic pop songs have been learned (American Pie etc) we can then tailor the lessons to suit the student, if they want to work on jazz, rock, country etc...
I have a Basic teaching qualification PTTLS (Preparing to Teach in the Liflelong learning Sector) of which this has enabled me deliver presentations to students in Music and Health & Safety, and plan lessons thoroughly, so that students get the most out of the lesson they can.
Hello! I come from both a Classical and Popular music background with an emphasis on teaching through listening with the ears and exploring the student's sound. I've studied saxophone with Classical saxophonist Kyle Horch and currently with Jim Corry of Jamiroquai, and have a scholarship to study Pop Piano with Andrew Hickley at Leeds College of Music.
All lessons are tailored to the students needs and I employ a variety of different teaching styles and techniques in order to achieve the best learning outcome. Most lessons are practical with theoretical backing. I try to make the lessons as fun and engaging as possible.
I try to keep my lessons as fun and as practical as possible, for example, we will learn a song/scale/piece of music etc in as much detail as YOU want, then, I will offer the option to explore the theory behind the playing, and even the history of a certain instrument or genre of music, I tailor my lessons entirely around what my students want to learn.
I am an experienced actor, voice-over artist, musician, composer and acting tutor from London. I also currently sit on the audition panel for a prestigious drama school. I offer friendly and encouraging tuition for all ages and abilities. - Which subject(s) do you teach? I will help your Drama school audition preparation, with advice, monologue suggestions, and direction.
I feel that music comes from the heart, and that's why i'm not in favor of reading music, that takes the creativity out of it. I feel that a person should learn an instrument, and then see where those teachings take them. Thats what I was always taught. Great music isn't created by reading off a sheet.
I like to treat every student that I teach like a friend i believe that is very important i am more than happy to teach students that are brand new to guitar and people who know how to play guitar but are not quite there yet.
If you'd like a teacher that makes you complete grades and play boring songs from textbooks older than both of us, then turn away now! My lessons are well planned but with plenty of room for changes on-the-fly. I believe that lessons should be able to adjust to how you're feeling on the day and what you were listening to this morning.
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.
