I've taught Chess to kids/adults

Learn basic strategy

About Marian
I am a guitar teacher with 10+ years of experience teaching all different styles of music. Blues, Folk, Acoustic, funk, ska, Rock, Metal, Melodic, Country, Classical, Punk, Alternative, and various other melodies. I have played concerts all over the state of Illinois and I have taught many students throughout the years. I teach beginning, intermediate, and advanced players. I am very passionate at what I do and I will guide you through the proper steps in becoming a great guitar player. Playing music takes a lot of time and patience as well as a lot of practice playing by yourself and in front of people. I am very relaxed and motivated to help my students learn and I will guide you through everything.

I would prefer that students bring their own guitars so that you would be more comfortable playing your own instrument, if you can
't or do not have one, I have guitars here that you may use but during our sessions only.

CHECK OUT MY VIDEO.

With a lot of practice and a lot of studying, I can show you how to play like a Pro an have fun!

*** Lesson Details ***
In my curriculum, students will start off by learning the basics of the guitar, knowing the parts,accessories and so forth. Then We will move on to Tuning and Perfect pitch. As we move on students will learn how to build and maintain a Rhythm.

Learning how to play chords is essential, and we will be going through chord progress
ions and how to recognize and memorize the various chords.
Furthermore, i will be showing students how to Read Tabs and write music. I will be showing students the different types of scales that there as well as the keys that they are in for those who want to become soloists. I will also be teaching different techniques that are incorporated with Tapping on the fretboard as well as various other techniques.

All of these lessons will be taught in our private sessions, and each student will receive homework assignments, so that they can go home and practice what they have learned. I will be having tests later on, in which i would ask you to play one of your favorite songs.

With enough time spent practicing, you can become a master of your instrument.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Basement Studio: amps, guitars, wah pedals, music stands, guitar picks, and music sheets.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have an amp, wires, picks, guitars,gig bag,case, music sheets, picks, and music stands.

*** Specialties ***
My styles include Rhythm and Blues, Rock, Funk, Pop, Classical,Country, Classic Rock, Metal, Thrash, Alternative, Punk Rock, Folk, and various other Melodies.

I teach chess in school settings and private lessons. The skill of students ranges from beginner to intermediate. Some of my students have ratings up to 1200. I can teach you at your home, at my home, or a public place like a library or coffee shop. A typical lesson will be an hour and include a quick chess puzzle, a substantive and level-appropriate lesson, and a challenge game with analysis. All lessons are very dependent on student level, and may include only some of those components.

About Josh
Hi!

I have been working with students for several years in formal and informal settings. I have a degree in psychology, with a minor in statistics. I recently began coaching chess at several local DC area schools, and tutoring private students. I love to help people learn a new subject, and I am especially passionate about engendering the joy of learning in young people.

Thanks!
Josh

Sergey taught me about everything I had questions about and also offered suggestions in helping me to better determine the best way to find the career path that is right for me. Rather than hard and fast lessons, it was an opportunity to spend time, one on one, with a professional and learn from his experiences what works and what doesn't.
