Guitar is my first instrument and as a result, I am well versed in a number of styles! I'm happy to work with a student towards their own personal goals on the instrument. I can easily tailor lessons specific to student interests. If you're a beginning player, we'll take some time to go over basic technique/music reading using a combination of material from the essential elements and Mel Bay books as well as chord charts from well known pop/rock/country,etc.. songs. I try to get all of my guitar students to feel comfortable reading music as well as understanding the basic tenants of theory and improvisation on the instrument. With these skills, you'll be able to do whatever you want to do with the instrument in no time!
I have been playing music since I was about 13 years old. I initially started out on guitar but I quickly picked up mandolin, banjo, and ukulele thanks to the great theoretical tools I'd learned from my first teacher! I started studying alto saxophone around the same time I picked up guitar and began extensively studying violin a few years later.
I quickly began writing songs and at 15, I recorded my first album of original material with production help from Grammy award winning producer/guitarist Joe Reyes. Joe and I would go on to make four other records together and I would wind up doing string arrangements for one of his albums as well.
While still in high school, I began playing with a number of bands in my hometown of San Antonio, Texas as well as a few groups in ...
I have taught guitar for over 10 years. I studied with Lewis Winn at College of Santa Fe and have been performing as a guitarist/singer for 17 years. I love teaching students how to connect to their instrument, by way of finger-picking, strumming, playing scales, writing a melody or riff, and playing their favorite songs. I cater the lessons to what the student is desiring to learn, along with the basic skills of playing guitar.
Austin voice/guitar/songwriting instructor Suzanna Choffel has a varied performance & teaching background. Born & raised in Austin, Suzanna started performing in bands at a young age. Her love for music led her to study a diverse program at College of Santa Fe where she graduated Cum Laude in 2003. She then moved back to Austin where she quickly began teaching at Austin School of Music. She taught private lessons & was also a bandleader at Rock Camp Austin, a summer camp where teachers lead teen bands for two-week sessions, preparing them for their first show and audio recording, perfecting performance and technique. In 2011, Suzanna moved to New York City to gain a different experience and further her musical career. There she continued teaching students of all ages, ...
I teach guitar lessons face-to-face without sheet music. This is my adaptation of Japanese instruction (involving a call-and-response method). I begin by teaching the student the major scale in first position (the first three frets above the head) in the key of C. Once this has been learned (backwards and forwards), the student is ready to learn first-position chords. Barre chords, the blues scale, as well as jazz-flavored triads are taught once first position chords have been mastered.
I've been a performing singer-songwriter since 1993. My influences include Neil Young, Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Costello, Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, and Richie Havens. I've been teaching private lessons since 2011 and I tailor my lessons according to the individual needs of my students. Everyone learns at a different pace and in a different way. My objective is to provide instruction that both challenges as well as respects your rate of progress.
I'm a primarily self-taught musician. Although I impart knowledge of scales (the major and the blues ones specifically) and the theory behind them (both of which I learned from formal instruction) as a central component of my curriculum, the bulk of my knowledge came from listening to and imitating delta blues artists such ...
