When I teach guitar, I try to give students the tools they need for creativity and expressing themselves with their instrument. I let them decide how far into any given subject matter we dive, because I want our lessons to be tailored to their goals and their experience with playing. While maintaining discipline and thoughtful technique, I want my students to discover their inner artist through the blank canvas of music that lies before them while their imaginations soar. I also want my students to understand that being proficient on an instrument is earned, and that it will take time to play those difficult songs. But my students should not fear, because I will make getting their fun and exciting!

As for my experience, I like to play a lot of classic rock, folk, blues, and even alternative and punk rock. I throw in a little jazz every now and again. I can teach standard picking, hybrid picking, and finger picking as well. If a student is interested in music theory, I base a lot of lessons on that as well.

About Carson S.

I am a guitarist, keyboardist, and songwriter and I have been playing and writing songs for nearly a decade. I like to compose, arrange, and produce my own material.

I have been the lead guitarist for two bands in the past and have recently become the frontman/lead singer and rhythm guitarist for my current performance project. When teaching, I like to let my students learn exactly what they want to learn. I try not to force any traditional stuff on them, I like to focus on giving them the tools they need to achieve their own personal and musical goals. I want them to explore their own creativity, and paint their own musical work of art on the blank canvas that I lay before them. In this way, my lessons are tailored to each individuals interests and desires.
