- Teaches students:
- Ages 8+
- Teaching since:
- March 2004
Individualized lesson programs are geared toward your goals and the style of music, artists, and bands you are interested in. Chords, Scales, theory, technique and more are covered.
Students usually give me a list of songs that they are interested in learning. Students are encouraged to read music so later on they have the ability to learn songs from books and magazines for themselves.
I teach from my own learning/teaching experience and what past teachers have shown me. I use books from Berklee, Hal Leonard, Alfred and more. I usually email students files between lessons to support practicing. I also have custom backing tracks(songs/practice songs without guitar part) available.
I am teaching guitar privately. I can go to your home(Rockland County) or give lessons in my home(Stony Point). I have taught at Rockland Music and with Music to Your Home
Having trouble finding the right teacher locally?
Webcam lessons/online live guitar lessons are also a possibility. Good for long distance lessons, late night/off hour lessons....
