Hello! My name is Lucas and I am a very smart guy who is also nice. I have years of experience teaching and have an enthusiastic passion for it.
*** Travel Equipment ***
I would provide my own instruments, instrument stands, music stands, music paper and writing materials.
I would expect/prefer students to provide their own instruments and musical listening equipment (CD player, iPod, etc)
*** Specialties ***
I can teach a wide range of styles including but not limited to rock, jazz, blues, funk, classical, country, and different 'world' music styles. Some examples are Latin/salsa and African guitar and percussion. I also specialize in teaching musical improvisation, songwriting, composition, and production.
I use student-specific musical instruction texts and programs to cater to each individual students needs. I have experience teaching improvisation using creative methods that involve group participation and improvisation, both with voice and instruments.
My name is Blake C. and I teach any style of guitar music, but specialize in Classical and Rock Guitar techniques.
I have been playing guitar for more than 30 years. I have more than 20 years professional performance, session work, and instruction.
I was awarded the President's Scholarship in Classical Guitar Performance by the American Conservatory of Music in Chicago, Illinois in 1990 and was awarded a full tuition scholarship in Classical Guitar Performance by the Chicago Musical College in 1991.
My primary Classical Guitar Instructor at both institutions was Paul Henry. I also studied Rock Guitar with Dave Uhrich while attending both institutions and privately studied Jazz Guitar with Scott Reed.
I studied voice with Audrey Evans at the American Conservatory of Music and Robert Long at the Chicago Musical College.
I have participated in Classical Guitar Master Classes with Hubert Kappel, Dale Kavanagh, Eleftheria Kotzia, Bruce Holzman, Stephen Aron, Raphaella Smits, Richard Provost, Nicholas Goluses, and William Buonocore.
*** Lesson Details ***
I design lessons individually according to the needs and "wants" of each student. I specialize in developing and correcting technique in technique to improve the student's overall guitar skill.
Students that dedicate the time and effort each week to practicing see results rapidly. However, if you have a busy life and are just wanting to learn guitar for personal enjoyment, I design the lessons to develop you at your desired pace.
I teach guitar to children as young as five years old and adults of any age.When teaching younger children, it is significantly beneficial for parents to attend each lesson - I have parent seating available. Having the parent(s) attend the lesson aids in guiding the younger student while practicing during the week at home. The overall musical development and progress of the younger students improves drastically with the involvement of the parent(s). All lesson materials, ranging from individual sheet music to complete method books, are provided by me; except for the guitar.
Musical talent is a wonderful gift, but correct technique is not easily acquired without proper instruction. Your skill level eventually plateaus and your ability to learn and perform more difficult guitar music is inhibited, unless you have a solid foundation based on musical knowledge and proper guitar technique. I can help you begin building a solid foundation of musical and technical guitar skills. I will guide you through the initial development of guitar skills; correcting flaws in technique is my specialty.

I have been tutoring and teaching for twenty years for private students as well as at academic institutions (University of Arizona, Southern Mississippi, Phoenix, Capella, and Pima and Gulf Coast Community Colleges. In sessions, I find out what the student really needs and help them achieve realistic goals through thorough evaluation, pacing and persistent challenge. No matter what level of achievement is desired, I customize a lesson plan and learning regimen and guide the student to cross transformational thresholds. I look for and draw out the potential in students and help them achieve the competency they need to be independent learners and succeed in their endeavors professionally and personally.
