Any style... Geared toward your goals
I've been playing guitar for over twenty years. Most of my teaching comes from my experience as a professional upright bass player. I start my beginning students in the Hal Leonard guitar method books. These books provide a solid foundation and walk through a lot of concepts at a good pace.
Beginning students can expect to learn the basics of the instrument and how to handle it. It is very important to play without hurting yourself. They will also learn how to start coordinating their hands to pick and fret together in a manner that produces the most accurate pitch and tone possible. We will also cover the basics of chords and chord progressions.
Intermediate and advanced students will learn about different playing styles and techniques, as well as develop a solid repertoire.
I've performed some very tricky stuff on the guitar, from Eddie Van Halen to Jimmy Page to ZZ Top.
There's no substitute for self-motivation whenever learning a new instrument. Whether it be the song with 500 plays on your iPod, or the theme to your favorite video game, you are much more likely to commit hours of weekly practice to an instrument if you spend that time with a song you thoroughly enjoy. For that reason, the core of my teaching style is simple: students come to me with the songs they love, and I show them how to play those songs. If this calls for specific chords, techniques, or strumming patterns, I make those the priority in the student's instruction. General fundamentals, music theory, and ear training are integrated into lessons as we gradually work toward mastering the songs you love.
