I have been teaching guitar professionally for 16 years, and have extensive experience playing and teaching practically every style of guitar, including fingerstyle, classical, jazz, folk, rock, blues, pop, country, and metal. Classical is definitely one of the most challenging genres, but also one of the most rewarding. Let my experience and patience guide you on your way to mastering classical guitar!
My lessons structured around 2 things: -Improving your instrumental skills (technique, fingerboard knowledge) -Growing in your musicianship (establish the ability to study guitar & music independently, learning songs, , ear training, understanding harmony and grooves) - I have easy to understand *materials in PDFs (scales & Arpeggios exercises, chords voicing shapes and concepts, harmony and rhythm materials) -In the first class, we’ll take some time to figure out your specific needs, and come up with a plan to help you meet them.
My goal as a teacher is to give you the facility to express yourself through music. The key parts to developing this facility are: 1. theory -- notice i say theory, not rules. learning music theory is not about learning rigid rules that will stifle your creativity. when you learn theory, you learn to identify patterns and give them names so you can remember and reuse them. the more you know your theory, the more ways you know to express your ideas 2. technique -- the last thing you want is for your technique to hinder your ability to express your idea. Having good technique lets your ideas flow naturally. and really, why would you not want to be the best you can be? When you take lessons with me, you get out of it what you put in. Your job as student is to be honest with what you expect to achieve and my job as teacher is to give you the tools to achieve it
