Subjects Taught Guitar, Music Performance, Music Theory, Songwriting
I'm a guitarist with four years' of college-level instruction. I have a deep understanding of music theory and songwriting, especially in the pop, rock, blues, and metal styles. I have formed and lead a rock band with two CD's under its belt, and I have written everything from hymns to 1980's power ballads to string quartets. I know how music works. I know how to dissect it, explain it, and construct it.
On the educational side, I have over three years' teaching experience. I have taught the SAT's and critical writing to high-schoolers, I currently teach English to middle and high school students in south Boston, I routinely substitute teach in K-6th grade classrooms, and I have passed every state exam to obtain official teacher licensure in Massachusetts. I enjoy teaching, especially to young children and beginners.
I know firsthand the daunting challenge of learning how to play guitar, and I know how hard it can be to find the discipline to keep at it and practice...
